Russian Probe: Van Der Zwaan gets into deeper trouble!

The ones like Devin Nunes we’re yesterday in fundraising e-mails saying liberal democrats are making the Russian collusion up to his supporters. While Special Counsel Robert Mueller are continuing working on the case, that the kind of so-called patriots are undermining. Nunes are like a weasel, who run around pointing liar, liar, but he should look into himself. That can be said, as a European lawyer, who has already been indicted gotten his sentencing memorandum yesterday. It is viable and shows how many people at play, within the running Russian scandal. Nunes knows this, but he wants to obstruct justice, instead of being a patriot and see where the breadcrumbs are leading him. That is the proof of the recent events.

So, why do I say all that, because in the memorandum from Mueller. It has certain statements, that is not only interesting, but true fire under any investigation. The defendant Alex Van Der Zwaan, lied deliberately to the Special Counsel and also directly destroyed evidence. Even as the investigation knew about it. That shows how much and how good at digging these fellow FBI Agents are and the prosecutors within his team.

You know that you have a pickle, not just in the United States, but also in Ukraine, when these sort of stories get unleashed: “As referenced in the indictment, the law firm had been paid over $5 million for its work, largely through third-party payments by a Ukrainian oligarch, funneled through a Manafort and Gates Cypriot account. The Ukraine potential criminal matter concerned the allegation that in 2012-13 the then-government of Ukraine had disclosed that the firm was being paid only about $12,000 (an amount above which Ukraine law would have required a different procurement process)” (Mueller, 27.03.2018).

So he has lied, destroyed evidence and been paid vastly by Ukrainian oligarch through the known former Trump Campaign Manager Manafort and former Trump Aide Gates. Clearly, the scope is leading in a nice direction and the breadcrumbs are not so small. Soon they are getting into a slice of bread.

Further on, this is really enlightening: “That Gates and Person A were directly communicating in September and October 2016 was pertinent to the investigation. Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents assisting the Special Counsel’s Office assess that Person A has ties to a Russian intelligence service and had such ties in 2016. During his first interview with the Special Counsel’s Office, van der Zwaan admitted that he knew of that connection, stating that Gates told him Person A was a former Russian Intelligence Officer with the GRU” (Mueller, 27.03.2018).

So because of the unknown Russian mentioned in the memorandum of Mueller, we can clearly state the work of Van Der Zwaan and with the Trump Associates, who also are working directly with Ukrainian oligarchs, but also spies from Kremlin within GRU. If that isn’t a warning sign of your affairs, nothing is. That Gates knew this and was doing that, shows how they we’re working, what happen behind the seen other than money laundering for Ukrainian oligarchs is hard to know.

Still, it shows signs of how Mueller operates, as he has the information and wants to see if you will reveal or if you will lie. It isn’t that the defendant is lying, it is that Mueller is knowledge and can use it against the ones he building a case against. There isn’t any foul play, but good work and collection of evidence. That is why he had it covered. He can also with this implicate and build timeline with Manafort and Gates, which is telling.

This should be warning, a starch warning, that if he can do this with Van Der Zwaan, who lied, tried to deceive and destroy evidence. That Mueller already knew and that there was no escape. There really is. Nothing left. Don’t try to play Mueller, at this point him and his team will outsmart you. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Continues: H.R. McMaster replaced by Bolton, expect fire and fury now!

The White House changing heads and hats is going at a rampant speed, this time we now have in 14 months the third National Security Advisor, the first was Michael Flynn, who now has pleaded guilty in the Russian Probe of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Therefore, President Trump appointed Gen. H.R. McMaster. Who lasted until this week, when the Bush-hack and conspiracy theorist John Bolton. So the erratic behavior is not stopping. To count the members of senior staff and people leaving is a longer list, than the yearly drafts to talents to the NBA.

We can anticipate this changes as the Super-PAC of Bolton has been in connection with the Trump biggest donors, the Mercer family and the Cambridge Analytica. Therefore, this is the swamp eating the Presidency and also showing how political funding makes you pick the senior staff. And the Trump Presidency is one that does the blatant way and not really caring about the evidence.

That H.R. McMaster haven’t done much or done much to create more havoc, still the policies and the intelligence officials should worry now. Since McMaster at least had their back and trusted their judgment, now Bolton will come with an iron-fist and proclaim that war is the best defense. Like going in without forewarning and disregard to evidence. That is why he fits like glove into the erratic President like Trump. But the world should worry, because Bolton will narrate stories that fits his paradigm and create enemies, because he needs it.

You know that Bolton is trouble when the Economist reported this in 2005: “Democrats have expressed outrage. They had wanted to see more documents related to Mr Bolton’s involvement in several controversies. One allegation is that, in his previous job as undersecretary of state for arms control, he tried to fire a mid-level official who disagreed with his assessment of Cuba’s weapons capacity. There have been other reports of bullying and shouting at junior staffers. He is also accused of publicly inflating the threat of weapons of mass destruction in Syria. And Democrats want to know why he requested to see the classified, blacked-out names of some of his State Department colleagues that appeared in intelligence intercepts” (The Economist – ‘Bush stands by his controversial man’ 01.08.2005).

So its not like the most stable genius has hired the best man existing for the post. Just like Trump didn’t listen to advice about Flynn, he hired McMaster that didn’t work out, because he has a backbone and some sort understanding for his role in the cabinet. However, Bolton will light fire into anything and might create more controversy. That is needed so the news and indications of trouble for Trump can be put on Bolton, instead of Trump. Because Trump has problems with former affairs, Russian Probe and whatever else scandals he creates. Plus a trade-war and making a mess of Washington. There is nothing that is going smooth, because of Trump.

Just to prove further the madness of Bolton, Jonathan Stein wrote this in 2009: “One man that Bolton feels has plenty of backbone is the Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin, who Bolton believes can sense Obama’s weakness and is already finding ways to test it. In Bolton’s view, the problem isn’t merely that Obama isn’t man enough to take on Putin; it’s that Obama desires the United States to become a second-class nation. “The administration wants to return to an arms control relation with Russia that will put us in a greatly weakened position,” Bolton maintained. Russia isn’t the only threat that Obama will fail to confront, Bolton said. North Korea, he claimed, is testing a missile that can hit Alaska and “possibly” Hawaii. With “further development,” he added, that missile could someday be used to attack the continental United States. And North Korea is small potatoes compared to Iran. “We have lost the race with Iran on the nuclear front,” said Bolton. “They now have complete mastery over the nuclear fuel cycle. And while in the long-term, the preferred outcome would be to change the regime in Tehran and get rid of the Islamic revolution of 1979, we don’t have time to do that before they get nuclear weapons capability.” Bolton expressed disappointment that the Bush administration did not use force against Iran. Judging from the enthusiastic crowd reaction, there are plenty of conservatives who think that Bush’s foreign policy failing was not preemptively attacking enough Middle Eastern countries” (Jonathan Stein – ‘John Bolton at CPAC: The Benefits of Nuking Chicago’ 26.02.2009, Mother Jones).

So seeing what sort of man he hired now, is even more out of line and out of bound, than Flynn was. Flynn was compromised by being a foreign agent without disclosing it. McMaster didn’t have the mind-state of Trump, but no-one who is sane wants that. Bolton got the same crazy solutions and the fanatic ideas that can destroy all the decades of negotiations and diplomacy in a heartbeat. Bolton, has the ideas and could make things worse. Because he will be as erratic as Trump.

We cannot expect the world to better with this sort of hack involved. We can just see how Attorney General Sessions and his use of the Judicial powers. The shameful era is there, the DoD is attacking its own soldiers, while President Trump is golfing half of the time. This will not be better, but only worse. Bolton, will not create a better world. I doubt that, the NSA is now a hack, a Bush-Hack. I never thought that would be thing to bring back. We just Dick Cheney and Karl Rove. Just to put the spinning the wheels in favor of Lockheed Martin and Halliburton of the old-days.

We should hope McMaster lasted longer, it would be less damage, but now it will be more. The NSA has his third person in that role. That isn’t consistency, but nothing is consistent in the White House. The only thing is Pence, but he cannot be fired. Peace.

Cambridge Analytica Scandal: Confidential Memorandum – “Re: Participation in US Election” (22.07.2014)

Opinion: Cambridge Analytica and Facebook – Time to connect the dots!

It’s time to wake-up and smell the coffee. It is time to kick-back and not be fooled by the mess. It has been a vindictive and outrage breach of trust between the social media company called Facebook, the Mark Zuckerberg has earned massive profits on speculative ads and destruction of democracy. While he has let political weaponized attempts of our digital imprints on his page taken by the Strategic Communication Laboratories and the infamous Cambridge Analytica. That has done shady business all around the globe, on every continent and has imprinted their campaigns of malice to the public.

The distorted view that this is fine and dandy, that a multi-millionaire, a guy Cenk Ugur ones said printed money. Robert Mercer, the millionaire backing President Trump and such, who has his stooges in around him too. That this guy’s ethical backbone, has been shown to world and what sort of affair it is. Clearly, they have misused and illegally collected personal information, I doubt only in United States, but all around the globe. As well, as Facebook has been paid to alter likes of pages, posts and whatnot from all the major political parties. All to create social media merit to the ones ruling the world.

Therefore, this all a collective scheme, where the data-breaches, where the personal information and the collected effort has undermined our system. Because we have trusted Zuckerberg, but also unknowingly let him trade away our social-media interactions to a third-party, which haven’t been sanctioned for their use of that. They have at the same time, used this information to hit key areas in elections, states and also ethnic groups, as well as the same backers has had PR campaigns, written speeches and made a whole package to secure the elections in certain republics.

In Kenya, the Cambridge Analytica, that has breached the data collection activity in the United States, could surely, done the same there. As they could have taken it, messed around it with it and then played the cards to secure the president. The company has even the server of the Electoral Commission (Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commission). Therefore, they got all the tools to alter the narrative and the results in the favour of their contractor Kenyatta and the Jubilee Party.

The same can be seen with the DUP who both paid Facebook, but also paid Cambridge Analytica, even parts of the Brexit referendum campaign funds has gone to this. Therefore, they have used shady tricks and used malicious breaches of public trust, to build campaigns fitting the public.

This isn’t only a USA thing, even if this is shattering the gates of power, as they are involved, the ones close to the Trump Campaign, even the one time Campaign Manager Stephen Bannon was involved in the company in question, therefore, who knows what sort of data he has used for his methods and his help to get Trump elected. As well, as the leaks has proven the company even used honey traps to black-mail politicians and was proud of this. This isn’t campaigning, but is reality a special sort of scandal, where the mighty knights and their misuse of trust has been breached.

This isn’t just about social media, this is how it has been used and how the politicians, their benefactors and their donors has used to boost their campaigns, how they have hired in consultants that has taken private information, sorted it in brackets and made sure they could use it take advantage of the political climate. Make sure they had the right slogans, the right message and right PR. That they could use the social media to spin the news cycle and make sure the people got hooked. All of this in attempt to secure their client, the Presidents and President-Elect. The ones they was working for, using the details from the big-data, breach the networks and secure the foundation of a campaign. Where the people are running around like sheep providing all the details and the reconfiguring it and they spilling the beans. That has been done, time and time again, also that if it is possible. They have even made sure of the counting, the rigging of the ballots. So their client get elected through their circus, it doesn’t have to be legitimate, but they are playing shadow state through their computers and servers. Playing second fiddle, but being the king-maker nevertheless.

That shows the dire need for investigations, for suspending these sort of activities, stopping Facebook for delivering this information, if not get people to deactivate and kill of their profiles. So Cambridge Analytica cannot use their information for political campaigning, so they cannot steal the big-data and juice up either Trump or Kenyatta. This for profits, this for personal gain and we now know, that the innocence of Facebook is gone and the image CA had was false.

Cambridge Analytica was a hit-factory, they made hits online and in real life, made campaigns and prepared the whole package, they could even make the candidates and they could be empty shell of a person, they don’t even need a thinking mind. That is proven, that is worrying and the empty suits boosted by collecting social media without knowledge, is proving to a serious breach, a serious attack on the trust and can collectively destroy our trust in companies involved. We as consumers should move elsewhere, but where. Who else has a platform that works, that is what we have to find and make sure it is not used by third-parties to weaponized our digital imprint online. Peace.

Opinion: Trump’s White House NDA’s expects to be able to mute all staff: “at all times, thereafter”! [it’s a First Amendment Violation]

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances (First Amendment – Passed by Congress September 25, 1789. Ratified December 15, 1791. The first 10 amendments form the Bill of Rights’).

The Donald J. Trump Presidency is really insane, it is really a horror house of governance, by a former so-called Tycoon who slaps his name on buildings and golf-courses, but haven’t built much himself in the recent years. President Trump who fires, misfires and hires willy-nilly are now leaked about his Non-Disclosure Agreements with White House staff, that is insane, and is blatant in disregard to freedom of speech, liberty and of people’s will to speak out of the madness happening with the term of the President.

You know he really has many crimes, much activity he don’t want disclosed, don’t want public. When all aides, all appointments and all people working for him in the White House. Signing NDA’s that silence them “at all times thereafter”. It isn’t like they are only signing, we will not classified information, we will not leak private conversations while being in the White House. No, it is all time after. So if your in the 20s or 30s hired like Stephen Miller, he cannot leak crap all his life for all the decades he is alive after Trump stopped being President. The same with Hope Hicks, who isn’t that old. She would be silent for 5 decades after what she saw as one of the trusted aides of Trump. Hicks could clearly have written a tell-all book about her time in the Trump Organization and Trump White House. But she wouldn’t be allowed, sure the President made similar agreements in his businesses. Seriously, he must have, since he cannot stomach to release them Tax-Returns. The grand-coward cannot be transparent, but that we know.

Non-Disclosure Agreement from the White House:

As outlined in the document, this restriction would cover Trump aides not only during their White House service but also “at all times thereafter.” The document: “I understand that the United States Government or, upon completion of the term(s) of Mr. Donald J. Trump, an authorized representative of Mr. Trump, may seek any remedy available to enforce this Agreement including, but not limited to, application for a court order prohibiting disclosure of information in breach of this Agreement.” (Marcus, 2018).

That he will take former employees, former aides and appointed into cabinet if they talk is outrages. That he thinks he can control the first amendment and silence the staff for life is insane. It is vindictive and vicious. But nothing new from this man, whose done the same to Stormy Daniels and who else he has had a shady relationship while being married. I am sure he has more NDA’s which is connected to his infidelity, because this man has no self-control. Just look at the man’s tweet and you know!

You can wonder if this is made by the legal team of Michael Cohen and not under government protocol. Like I doubt the Department of Justice had a review, neither the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) or the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) at the White House. Because, they know the laws and standards for government officials and public servants. The appointed people and hired staff in the White House is not personal minions of Trump. Even if he thinks so and thinks he is secretly King Kong who can solve any crises. Even if he creates most of them on his own.

It should be easy to dismiss, any scholar should understand that the NDA cannot violate the First Amendment, than it should be tarnished and rewritten. They cannot mute people from the free speech, they cannot stop people from talking and being in the press after the tenure of Trump. They are not allowed to leak sensitive information, not allowed to disclose confidential information, but that is while being staff. However, when they are clocked-out and contract done. Then, they can disclose matters and also put the stories in print if they want. That is natural. Therefore, these NDA’s are stupid and vindictive, because Trump is afraid of the stories. Even Wolf’s book ‘Fire and Fury’ has stirred the pot, but there will be more in the future. These NDA’s will not last.

The President is not above the law, even if he thinks so inside his own mind. He has to respect the law, just like any citizen has to abide to it. It is time the President understand that, it is a lot to ask of Trump. But someone had to do it, it just happen to be me. Peace.

The White House Sack-Race Continues: Sessions firing Deputy Director of FBI McCabe – Just another Whack Job from the Administration!

It is rich of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire on behalf of the President Donald Trump, the Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Andrew McCabe. It is so wealthy and extravagant of the AG to sack McCabe, this is a hack-job or a whack-job. This is so fitting this limited minded administration under President Trump. The steam-rolling circus evolving around the narrow-minded, compromised and tauntingly stupid administration of Trump. This isn’t governance, this isn’t building institutions or trying to uphold them, instead it is massaging the ego of Trump.

This is buying Sessions time, since he has been under-fire and called disloyal on dozens of occasions by the President. Who has no civil understanding or common sense, except he wants Mars Robots and Soldiers fighting Jupiter now, while building a wall and still having a massive budget deficit. You know that Trump doesn’t have many marbles left, neither any words of wisdom. That is why he hires folk from CNBC and Fox&Friends, because he doesn’t know better.

McCabe is fired because he has defied and followed protocol, he is fired because Trump grew tired that the Russian investigation and the Mueller Probe finally hit the Trump Organization. The skeletons in the business of the Trump Organization will be looked into by the FBI. The ones that he despise and tried to obstruct ever since getting into office. It is only someone who fears the truth, that does what he can to stifle the investigation. Just think if Obama did this one of a dozens of Benghazi hearings or if Clinton moved against the Starr Impeachment investigations. The whole Republican hell would have brought loose, but in this day and age, it is just Friday.

Trump can have allegations of all ill-conduct, he can be sued by a Porn-Star, while other Presidents cannot even have alleged blow-jobs in the office or mistresses. Without nearly losing their jobs or getting public scrutiny. The double-standard is amazing, it was a week where Obama was critiqued by the Republicans for wearing a brown-suit. Today, it sound like nonsense, it was nonsense back-then, but compared to the big scandals of Trump. It is nothing and shouldn’t have been a thing.

That this firing is suspect isn’t only that Sessions did the bidding of the President, but that hours ahead of the firing, the Fox News had already made draft articles of the firing of him. The angle wings was already spreading and the legacy and the epicenter of nonsense was in full swing. That the allegations made by Sessions is rich, since he lied on his forms before getting appointed, he didn’t tell about his meeting with foreign agents during the run-up to the election. He also lied on the stand when they were having the public hearing. Therefore, Sessions is not the guy to blame McCabe, he should first fist-pump God, before telling other about orderly conduct.

For me this a reaction that the McCabe never flinched or stopped the Russian Probe of Mueller, never gave way or stopped anything. This is revenge and petty politics of the highest order, the Grand Wizard of the White House. He just cannot help himself, while he is watching Fox News, InfoWars or busy playing golf.

This is just one of to many who has gone out, the second highest in command of the FBI. The Second FBI director during the tenure of Trump. That should be shocking, but he has no levels of understanding, that the President is not above the law. However, he thinks so. McCabe is just the freshest casualty in the war against his case and the Mueller Investigation. If there was nothing, he wouldn’t obstruct justice, neither sack former FBI Director James Comey or politicize the Department of Justice. It is not one of his tools, but a independent department to work for the citizens, not the Commander-in-Chief. The whiny baby in the Oval Office, has to sooner learn that, but that train has left the station already.

We just know, that the Trump Administration will continue to be chaos, as the people hired has no knowledge of governance and is stooges, while the will of the GOP isn’t there. All other excuse is not acceptable. The reality is that this is just another step in touching the Russian investigation. To look at it differently is just exposing the mental dissonance from the factors that been spinning since inauguration.

It is time to indict more people close to the President and fire of all cylinders, but Mueller is navigating the waters and collecting evidence to build case. He will not give in easy and will cover all space. Not like GOP House Representatives, that are showing their weakness and loyalty to the President. That is why the suspended the investigations there, without getting all details as the DNC Report after proves. To many people haven’t been interviewed, neither subpoena enough documentation. Hopefully, Mueller does and gets, so he can drop bombshells and prove no leads to the reality getting exposed. Peace.
