>House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes set off a stunning new political controversy Wednesday by revealing that communications of President Donald Trump and associates may have been picked up after the election by intelligence agencies conducting surveillance of foreign targets.
>Nunes hurried to the White House to personally brief Trump on the revelations, after talking to the press but without sharing the information with Democrats. His Democratic counterpart on the committee -- Rep. Adam Schiff of California -- warned that his colleague had cast a "profound cloud" over their effort to investigate Russian attempts to interfere in the election.
>A Republican source with knowledge of the situation claimed the information that Nunes talked about was from the intelligence community and not the White House. The source said Nunes was "steaming" about what he read.

>That source said Nunes met with Republican members of the Intelligence Committee before his news conference, and several tried to convince him not to do it before he spoke with Schiff. But Nunes didn't take the advice, with the news conference already called by the time he met with the GOP committee members. Nunes was too mad, the source said.
>The comments by Nunes do not appear to support Trump's claims, debunked by FBI Director James Comey, that he was wiretapped by his predecessor President Barack Obama. Rather, they appear to relate to conversations between Trump or associates and people who were targeted by FISA warrants -- that Nunes said did not appear to be illegal.

>But the President was asked by reporters if he feels vindicated by the visit from Nunes and answered: "I somewhat do. I must tell you I somewhat do, I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found."
>Another day of shocking drama intensified the intrigue and uncertainty sparked by Trump's feud with intelligence agencies, his accusations of shady practices by his predecessor and the wider question of the Trump campaign's links with Russia that are currently the focus of an investigation by the FBI.
>Nunes told reporters the conversations were "incidentally" collected as part of intelligence sweeps focusing on other people and implied that Trump was not the target of the surveillance operation.
>He said he discovered accounts of conversations related to Trump and his associates when he was reviewing intelligence repo

Fake news and racism against Russia! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

https://euvsdisinfo.eu/useful-experts-in-russian-media/
>Russian state-owned media, such as Russia Today (RT), Sputnik and Russian national TV position themselves as reliable alternatives to what they label “main stream media”. The use of international commentators and experts by these Russian media does not necessarily reflect the depths of their expertise, rather whether their positioning is in line with pro-Kremlin narratives.

>Readers of the Disinformation Review will for example recall the recent appearance of a Belgian commentator in a Russian talk show where he shouted that “thousands of women are being raped every day” on the streets of Brussels. When not appearing on Russian national TV, the same commentator has organised events with a former leader of the Ku-Klux clan and a former leaders of the British National Party. In a piece from Sputnik, he gives an “exclusive interview” in the role of a “Belgian political scientist and director of geopolitical research centre”. Here he repeats disinformation about the downing of flight MH17 over Ukraine, claiming that “there are facts that the Russians did not do it” and “that there is proof that it wasn’t Russia”.

>The Belgian example is just one of many where Russian state-controlled media systematically invite contributions from far-right commentators from European countries – people with very limited impact in the communities they come from. Many of these “experts” are also invited to rally in Russia around shared far-right political agendas.

>The Russian journalist and acknowledged propaganda expert Alexey Kovalev provides additional highlights from the international “expert” community that is prominent on Kremlin-loyal media. We find for example the alleged American expert on anti-terrorism, who has earned himself a prison sentence in the US for, among other things, posing as aide to a high-ranking officer and tricking the US Air Force into giving him an apartment. Or the British lawyer, who appears on pro-Kremlin media as an expert on international law, but who has lost his license to practice as a lawyer in the UK after a case of fraud against a client. Or the American expert on international political affairs, who has often been used in Russian media to criticise Barack Obama and laud President Putin, but who turns out to belong to a group of believers in extraordinary conspiracies and who has also earned himself a prison sentence for fraud in the US.

>Then what evidence is there that she was a sacrificial lamb?
She was made one, of course, by liberal, western-supported propaganda. Otherwise you wouldn't know anything about her. Just as you have any idea about other journalists killed for different reasons. A famous journalist can be killed by explosion in the middle of the capital in Ukraine, and at best all you got to hear is one or two articles on news feed. That is all. Nobody is going to remember him a year after, not to say, look for perpetrators. Nobody is going to blame government and nationalists. It is because western media doesn't care about people, they only care about useful puppets.

>About whether or not the authorities tolerate crimes or what I said about judging organizations more generally?
Both. If court was unable to decide a responsible party in this case it does not mean that government has something to do with it - after all, a lot of murders remain unsolved everywhere. Of course, if you are typical Russian liberal, a mere idea that the victim was somehow acting against "state", it is enough to convince you that the government is responsible. If government does something, it is bad, because it is responsible, and if the government doesn't do something, it is bad too, because it is irresponsible - that is their modus operandi.

One could argue her actions were directly in support of the Chechen separatists. I think that would possibly cover it.

In any way, she was deeply foreign to Russia and acting against Russian interests, so she was an enemy of the state.

>One could argue her actions were directly in support of the Chechen separatists
I think the investigation has determined that the assassination was made by Chechens, but it is hard to assess who was the client. AFAIK it could be foreign actor, or one of the Chechen terrorists, or even one of the people sided with Kadyrov. Needless to say, for all these people the issue of war crimes (and loyalty) is a very sensitive one, and Anna can earn her Darwin prise for sticking her nose into these matters.

In the same vein, it is not too surprising that people of the state did not want to investigate it too deep. But you can't stop the belief with mere rational argument.

>imagine the massive offended outcry from the super patriots of republican party if hillary clinton's campaign had been caught attempting to hide a payment of this magnitude from the filthy commies. when its their guy, even treason is permissible. such patriotism.

New corruption allegations lodged in Ukraine against President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, have thrust Manafort back into the forefront of ongoing scrutiny over whether the Trump team coordinated with the Russian government to influence the U.S. election.

The allegations were disclosed Tuesday at a news conference by a Ukrainian lawmaker who said he had obtained documents showing that Manafort had attempted to hide payments he had received from the party of Ukraine’s former president, who is living in Russia and wanted on corruption charges­ in his home country.

A spokesman for Manafort called the claims “baseless” and said some of the documents released Tuesday appeared to be fabricated because the letterhead and signatures did not match those belonging to Manafort.

The spectacle in Kiev came just hours after FBI Director James B. Comey confirmed the existence of a federal probe into possible connections between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin.

It also followed an apparent effort by the White House to distance Trump from the man who helped lead his campaign during five critical months into last summer, with White House press secretary Sean Spicer declaring Monday that Manafort had played a “limited role for a very limited amount of time” in the campaign.

Manafort, 67, a longtime lobbyist and Republican strategist, was hired by the Trump campaign in March 2016, a time when Trump was winning primaries but feared he could still lose the nomination if his team failed to properly master arcane convention rules and wrangle votes from Republican delegates. In May, he was named the campaign’s chairman.

From the start, there was focus on Manafort’s ties to pro-Russian figures, given Trump’s repeated calls to forge closer relations to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin and Russia’s emerging role over the summer in seeking to meddle in the U.S. election.

It wasn't just $12 million. There was also $10 million annual starting in 2006.

>Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse.

>Manafort pitched the plans to Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally with whom Manafort eventually signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006, according to interviews with several people familiar with payments to Manafort and business records obtained by the AP. Manafort and Deripaska maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, according to one person familiar with the work.

nigger gonna be in a cell with OJ before long

Two leading members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are asking the FBI and the Justice Department to hand over any warrant applications related to possible wiretaps of Donald Trump and his team after the president accused his predecessor of illegally tracking his conversations.

Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), the top Republican and Democrat on the Judiciary Committee’s crime and terrorism panel, wrote Wednesday to FBI Director James B. Comey and acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente asking for “copies of any warrant applications and court orders — redacted as necessary . . . related to wiretaps of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower.”

Boente was recently put in charge of such issues at the Justice Department after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from matters pertaining to the Trump campaign.

“We would take any abuse of wiretapping authorities for political purposes very seriously,” Graham and Whitehouse wrote. “We would be equally alarmed to learn that a court found enough evidence of criminal activity or contact with a foreign power to legally authorize a wiretap of President Trump, the Trump Campaign, or Trump Tower.”

Trump’s weekend accusation that the Obama administration had ordered wiretaps of his phones, delivered via Twitter, sent members of Congress into a frenzy this week. Some Republicans quickly responded positively to the president’s demands for a congressional investigation, while Democrats and other Republicans expressed alarm that Trump had made such an accusation without providing any evidence to support it.

Comey has already asked the Justice Department to refute Trump’s accusation. White House officials have tried to deflect that, calling for a congressional investigation — and refusing to answer questions about what evidence the president’s accusation rests upon until such an investigation commences.

Several members of Congress have said that Trump needs to publicly explain the substance behind those allegations before Congress should dig into it. The leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, meanwhile, have agreed to include an examination into potential wiretaps in their ongoing probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections — though they acknowledged that there is no evidence yet that such wiretapping took place.

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/report-confirms-fox-news-napolitano-got-his-british-intelligence-conspiracy-theory-from-russian-state-media/
>The New York Times has confirmed that Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano sourced his false allegation that former President Barack Obama asked British intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump to a discredited former CIA analyst. This analyst, Larry C. Johnson, floated the conspiracy theory on the Russian state-sponsored news network RT on March 6, the week after Trump's original accusation that Obama was responsible for an illegal wiretap.

>On March 13, Napolitano told hosts of Fox News' Fox & Friends that Obama circumvented the American intelligence community to ask "the British spying agency" for "transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump" without "American fingerprints." Napolitano's claims were cited by White House press secretary Sean Spicer while defending Trump's baseless claims that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election.

>On March 14, Media Matters uncovered the link between Napolitano's claims and an interview Johnson gave to RT. The New York Times confirmed Media Matters' reporting that Napolitano used Johnson as "one of the sources" for his "claim about British intelligence." The Times also noted Johnson's direct involvement in spreading false rumors that video existed of Michelle Obama using a racial slur against white people. From the March 17 article:

>Mr. [Andrew] Napolitano's unlikely leap into global politics can be explained by his friendship with Mr. Trump, whom he met with this year to discuss potential Supreme Court nominees. Mr. Napolitano also has a taste for conspiracy theories, which led him to Larry C. Johnson, a former intelligence officer best known for spreading a hoax about Michelle Obama.
[...]

>Mr. Johnson, who was himself once a Fox News contributor, said in a telephone interview that Mr. Napolitano called him on Friday and requested that he speak to The New York Times. Mr. Johnson said he was one of the sources for Mr. Napolitano's claim about British intelligence.

>Mr. Johnson became infamous in political circles after he spread false rumors in 2008 that Michelle Obama had been videotaped using a slur against Caucasians. In the interview on Friday, Mr. Johnson acknowledged his notoriety, but said that his knowledge of surveillance of Mr. Trump came from sources in the American intelligence community.

As you no doubt will have heard, IMCO and the EU commission are trying to reform the firearms regulations within the EU. This change has been spearheaded by the british. Who will be brexiting, but still want to ruin everything for the rest of us while they still can.

The IMCO & EU commission have now reached a draft text which they believe will be able to pass the EU parliament. The proposal will be presented to parliament in March 2017.

The proposed changes to the current laws can be found here: https://www.docdroid.net/JCvID2y/directive-91-477-compromis-16122016.docx.html

Some of the things that our american friends will find revolting are extensive central registration (for up to decades after destruction of a firearm), medical & psychological tests, suitability checks at least every 5 years,...

It's interesting to note that some member states are already looking for work arounds. Most notably the Czech, who are planning to declare that all citizens are necessary for security of state and therefor excempt of the proposed EU rules. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

Below I'll go over some of the stuff that would change for me as a Belgian:

Closer to $50 million current year dollars. It's a freight helicopter that carries twice what the previous aircraft carried to the same range, while being the same size. That's a pretty monumental increase in improvement and would warrant the cost...

...

...

if it was real. But it's not, the idiots arrive at the cost of $122 million by dividing the total program cost ($25 billion) by 200 of the lot aircraft plus prototypes. This is fucking retarded, by that logic F-35 is $691 million.

The B-50 was the other way around. The USAF needed the improved B-29D but they were scrapping most of the old war production B-29s. So to get congress to approve it they changed the designation number.

There was also the FJ-1 Fury, a straight wing jet derived from the P-51 design, and the FJ-2/3 Fury, a navilized F-86. And the FJ-4 Fury which was again a F-86 but was again different from the FJ-2.

An intriguing Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that former President Barack Obama fled Washington D.C. this past Friday (10 March) traveling to New York City, Omaha (Nebraska), San Jose (California) and ending up in Hawaii—all occurring within 36 hours while he sought elite allies to defend him, and keeping him ahead of investigators from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the US Department of the Treasury (DoT) seeking to interview him about one of the largest drug busts in American history occurring in the Caribbean aboard a fishing vessel named the Lady Michelle.

According to this report, nearly immediately upon taking office as President Donald Trump’s Attorney General on 9 February, Jeff Sessions, as head of the US Department of Justice (DOJ), was handed a top secret file by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey detailing the nearly two-decade long crimes of 12 current and former security and intelligence officers belonging to the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) who for at least 18 years under both the Bush and Obama regimes had smuggled into the United States at least $100 million worth of cocaine.

Four days after Attorney General Sessions received this top secret file on these Bush-Obama regime drug criminals from Director Comey, on 13 February, this report continues, he ordered their immediate arrest—and that was meant to coincide with former President Obama being out of the United States as he was vacationing in the Virgin Islands.

Upon their learning that Attorney General Sessions had ordered the arrest of this Bush-Obama regime TSA criminal drug ring, this report details, “surrogates/accomplices” of former President Obama vacationing with him in the Virgin Islands attempted to contact a Guyana national named Mohamed Nazim Hoseain—whom the SVR had previously identified as being an organizational member of the Islamic terror group known as the Muslim Brotherhood—and that President Trump is now preparing to name as a terror organization too.

Mohamed Nazim Hoseain, this report explains, was unable, however, to be contacted by former President Obama’s “surrogates/accomplices” as the fishing vessel he was the captain of, named the Lady Michelle, was dead in the water about 70 nautical miles off Paramaribo, Suriname, in international waters after all of its electronics had been disabled by a US Navy EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft—and that shortly afterwards, on 16 February, it was boarded by the US Coast Guard whom discovered over 4 tonnes of cocaine valued at $125 million—and was the largest US drug bust in the Caribbean since 1999.

Arrested with Mohamed Nazim Hoseain aboard the Lady Michelle drug ship, this report continues, were Richard La Cruz, 49; Ne

Too many three-letter agencies in this report, I don't believe there's anything worth investigating. Though, after War On Drugs and war in Afghanistan it is no surprise to anyone with brain matter that top NATO figures are swimming in drug money.

>In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes.
Old news are old.

>The U.S. agents and their shady deals with Mexican drug lords even sparked what the paper called a “secret war” inside Mexico.”
And there's nothing secret about war in Mexico, it's just that media doesn't report it.

Literally fake news.
https://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/24/world/asia/pakistan-israel-khawaja-asif-fake-news-nuclear.html

>The defense minister, Khawaja Muhammad Asif, wrote a saber-rattling Twitter post directed at Israel on Friday after a false report — which the minister apparently believed — that Israel had threatened Pakistan with nuclear weapons. Both countries have nuclear arsenals.

>“Israeli def min threatens nuclear retaliation presuming pak role in Syria against Daesh,” the minister wrote on his official Twitter account, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “Israel forgets Pakistan is a Nuclear state too.”

>Mr. Asif appeared to be reacting to a fake news article published on awdnews.com.

>That story, with the typo-laden headline “Israeli Defense Minister: If Pakistan send ground troops to Syria on any pretext, we will destroy this country with a nuclear attack,” appeared on the website on Dec. 20, alongside articles with headlines like “Clinton is staging a military coup against Trump.”

>The fake story about Israel even misidentified the country’s defense minister, attributing quotations to a former minister, Moshe Yaalon. Israel’s current minister of defense is Avigdor Lieberman.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump - 4h
I just learned that Obama was smuggling drugs into the United States on a boat named after his wife. Despicable! This is worse than Iran-Contra!

>On her Tuesday show, Rachel Maddow teased a scoop: She had Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns. It was the first time his federal returns would be released.
>Anyway, when she finally revealed what was in the taxes, it was not a huge deal. Trump earned about $150 million in income in 2005, and paid $38 million in taxes, thanks to the alternative minimum tax, which he wants to kill.

Summary:
Trump sends Maddow a "customer copy" of his own tax return, only Trump has access to this copy. Maddow thinks she made a journalism and releases them.
Tax returns prove Trump paid more in taxes than Obama, Sanders, and any other presidential candidate. This kills the MSM attack line of "hurr you dont support veterans with your taxes".
They also prove he had no payments from Russia whatsoever, thus defeating another MSM lie.

>In 2005, the tax returns show, Trump was still benefitting from the massive, $916 million loss he claimed in 1995. Documents obtained by The Times suggested it would technically have been possible for the president to convert that loss into a $50 million tax credit every year for 18 years afterward, but the new 1040 confirms that in 2005 he was, in fact, still taking advantage of that loophole – a loophole Congress closed in 1996, the year after he claimed it.

Golly gee, such victory. Very smrt. No wonder he was being investigated by the IRS.

Anyways, continue with the Russian shilling.

That loophole wasn't closed as much as modified heavily, the rate is lower now but callback loss is still in effect.

Lost money was still taxed
He was taxed at a rate that included the lost money, and he called back the tax credit on those losses.
TLDR the fedgov owed him because they overtaxed him.

This is accounting 101 guy.
Rolling Stone doesn't know jack and shit about accounting and you cannot expect them to put in the effort, they have almost always been tabloid tier

You realize that was for one year right? You realize that was income, and not assets, right? The man has been in business over 50 years, he had to make an average of 20 million a year to be a billionaire, of which the vast majority would be assets and invisible on an INCOME TAX RETURN.

When the government overtaxes you they don't get to keep the money, it's Trumps money for fucks sake. He was being investigated by IRS because Obama uses IRS as a weapon against conservatives.
