In 2013 Video, Trump Aide Boris Epshteyn Says Russia Controls Snowden Leaks!

The Russian-born Trump aide Boris Epshteyn has just left his position in the White House and a lot of people are wondering if it has anything to do with the investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.

This 2013 video I found might provide a piece to that puzzle – in it, Epshteyn discusses the political climate that could hurt or help Russian investment, which he favors.

Epshteyn talks about the Snowden intelligence leaks as one of the things that is hurting Russian investment, and seems to imply that he knows the Russians are controlling the spread of that information.

Watch below at about the 1:10 minute mark:

“I think as we get beyond this issue of Syria, Snowden gets forgotten about, unless there’s more leaks, which Russia says there won’t be, if that’s true, so there’s no more leaks, Syria gets left behind, there’s a lot of room for cooperation there. And then there’s room for good investment opportunities for companies out of United States into the former Soviet Union, to Russia specifically.”

The video was posted by the “Russian Center New York” in 2013:

Sooo… why does Boris, who is identified in the video as an expert in Russian investment, know that Russia can stop the Snowden leaks?

Doesn’t that seem pertinent to the current investigation?

Apparently, in the exact same month that this video was published, Epshteyn moderated a panel discussion with Russian officials about investing in Russia:

Wow. I bet you could get a lot of interesting information running a panel like that, huh?

Maybe somebody should get ol’Boris to spill the beans on what he knows about all this, eh?

‘Pizza Gate’ conspiracy pushers had a festival of idiocy

I am very disappointed because there was a festival of idiots who believe in the “Pizza Gate” conspiracy theory and nobody told me so that I could go and make fun of them. C’mon people, get it together already!!

Anyway, a reporter posted a ton of tweets documenting what happened there, and I would be remiss to not post them too.

SO PIZZAGATE is an insane conspiracy told by complete morons and asses who want to believe that they’re smarter than everyone else by seeing patterns that aren’t there – just like in the movies! Like most conspiracy idiots, they conjure up a cult-like zealotry to their theory because it’s easier to imagine your political opponent is actually evil, than it is to have to rationally debate your political opinions and beliefs. It’s intellectual laziness, on crack, with willful stupidity.

Now back the festival of idiocy:

These people seriously believe that there is a child sex ring in Washington D.C. that is being covered up by Hillary Clinton. The “proof” they have of this comes from Wikileaks leaked emails – they claim that Podesta, Hillary’s former campaign manager, was using “secret” codewords to talk about child sex. The “source” of the code? A Trump cultist who just made it up, based on the emails they read from Wikileaks. And morons are passing it around saying that it’s from the FBI, with absolutely no evidence of that.

A lot of the conspiracy centered around “Comet Ping Pong Pizza,” a pizza shop in Washington D.C. where the child sex ring supposedly meets. Again, there is no evidence of this, just insinuation and innuendo, which is why Alex Jones, the premier conspiracy idiot, had to apologize to the owners for fear of being sued.

The alt-right pushed this BS, and they’re also rather anti-Semitic, so this should not be a surprise.


“Earth is a LOOSH farm.”

Diseased minds.

They were angry that the reporter was there – you’d think they’d want more coverage, but everything is just a confirmation of their idiocy.

It’s really a shame that people would be so stupid as to waste time on these conspiracy theories. They give themselves over to lies because it’s easier than actually doing the hard work of persuading others about a political ideology. It’s sad, and pathetic, and this kind of crap makes our country worse rather than improving it. But on the other hand, it’s not a big group. It’s a big country, there are bound to be a lot of people who are off their meds. Now they have the internet to get together and propagate their insanity.

Brawl breaks out between Trump and anti-Trump protesters in Huntington Beach

A brawl broke out in Huntington Beach, California between anti-Trump protesters and Trump supporters.

This dude got it on video. Here are some videos and pictures from the protest.

The “pepe” frog is an alt-right meme.

Here’s the video of the brawl.

He posted on this tweet, “Absolute unrest at the #MAGAmarch, anti-Trump protestors defending themselves while being ganged up on by Trump supporters.”

And, “for everyone saying the anti-Trump protestor started it, here’s the beginning of the alteration #MAGAmarch”

I would say if you’re in a march and someone is holding this sign, you’re hanging out with bad people:

Apparently not enough people know what this means – “goyim” is the word for gentiles, or non-jews. This phrase is used in a lot of anti-semitic memes, lately by the alt-right:

Trump approved!

I think you can see this guy in the video:

This L.A. Times photographer captured some amazing photos:

Sorry! New Ferguson Video Only Proves Mike Brown Was A Drug Dealer Too

People are now freaking out over a new video of Mike Brown that was discovered of him entering the same market he robbed the day later just that morning at 1 AM.

They say it proves he didn’t rob the market, and thus was unfairly killed by Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson.

From the New York Times:

…a second, previously unreported video from that same convenience store included in a new documentary is raising new questions about what happened in the hours before the shooting on Aug. 9, 2014.

The footage shows Mr. Brown entering the store, Ferguson Market and Liquor, shortly after 1 a.m. on the day he died. He approaches the counter, hands over an item that appears to be a small bag and takes a shopping sack filled with cigarillos. Mr. Brown is shown walking toward the door with the sack, then turning around and handing the cigarillos back across the counter before exiting.

Jason Pollock, a documentary filmmaker who acquired the new tape, says the footage challenges the police narrative that Mr. Brown committed a strong-armed robbery when he returned to the store around noon that day. Instead, Mr. Pollock believes that the new video shows Mr. Brown giving a small bag of marijuana to store employees and receiving cigarillos in return as part of a negotiated deal. Mr. Pollock said Mr. Brown left the cigarillos behind the counter for safekeeping.

This is the video at the New York Times:

So here’s the problem with that narrative – it’s pure speculation. Pollack doesn’t KNOW that Brown had a drug deal and left the cigarillos there to get later. And even if he did, WHY did he choose to beat up the market owner when he came back? Doesn’t sound like an innocent “gentle giant” to me.

AND EVEN IF HE’S RIGHT, WHO CARES? That just makes Brown a drug dealer, who later robbed a market. How is that any better than before? AND it has absolutely nothing to do with grabbing a cop’s gun, which caused his death.

Sorry party people, but even if you’re a drug dealer who accidentally beat up a market owner under a misunderstanding, YOU CAN’T REACH FOR A COP’S GUN AND EXPECT TO LIVE. That’s how reality works.

Black Twitter loved it, of course:

And blamed the Jews?

Ugh, idiots. More rational Twitter mocked the absurd conclusions being hastily drawn:

And then there’s this guy saying nobody would trade weed for swisher sweets anyway:

So expect a bunch of whining race-mongers to push this video forever…

Hannity Pushing DNC Hacking Conspiracy Theory, Russians Are Innocent Victims

Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Schaeffer tells Sean Hannity that it was former members of the NSA that hacked the Democrats and made it look like the Russians. Of course, Hannity loved the idea, since he’s been pushing it for a while now.

Watch below at about the 4:20 minute mark, where Hannity almost wets himself with joy:

I’m not sure why Hannity has such a bug up his Obama to exonerate Putin, but he’s been on this conspiracy theory for a while. Unfortunately for him, Schaeffer doesn’t put the blame on Obama, but he puts it on anti-Hillary Americans who happen to be former NSA or other intelligence officials. This all seems very unlikely to me, but I have to admit the theory is more feasible after a former intelligence official backs it up.

BUT, what makes me very wary of all of these conspiracy theories is one fact – Trump could very easily get evidence of all of this within minutes, and has the power to declassify all of it. So why doesn’t he?

Also, Hannity is a moron.

Were Libs As Angry When Obama’s HUD Secretary Compared Slaves To Immigrants? NOPE!

People are absolutely freaking out because Trump’s new HUD Secretary Ben Carson called slaves a kind of immigrant recently.

And I’m not joking, they’re going insane over it:

BUT as it turns out, former President Barack Obama had a HUD Secretary too!! And not only was that moron not a brain surgeon, but he literally said the exact same thing that Ben Carson said!!

Where was the liberal freak out back then?

And he said it on MSNBC, and the moron host Alex Wagner didn’t even flinch when he did it!!!


Here’s what he said:

San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro hinted during a MSNBC interview that the status of illegal residents unable to secure citizenship in the U.S. is comparable to slavery.

“It would be unprecedented in American history for us to create a permanent class of folks who are not citizens, outside of slavery,” the Democratic politician said Thursday on “NOW with Alex Wagner.”

“We certainly learned our lesson from that,” he added.

Castro appeared on the cable news show with his twin brother Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) via satellite from Capitol Hill. The brothers said Democrats are pushing for immigration reform that would extend legal residence or citizenship to the estimated 11 million illegal residents living in the U.S.

Now, he wasn’t HUD Secretary at the time. But if the comments are so horrific, if they’re so terrible, if they show how evil Ben Carson is, then WHY did Obama later make douchebag Julian Castro HIS HUD Secretary later?

Why? Because liberals are hypocrites, that’s why.

Oh and just to get some icing on this crap-cake, Obama said it too:

So HUD Secretary Ben Carson is a moron for saying the same thing that Barack Obama and his own HUD Secretary said. Isn’t that convenient.

Now look, this isn’t a defense of Ben Carson – I have no idea if he’s going to be a good HUD guy or not. But it shows the absurd hypocrisy of the media and liberals.

Fun! Bob Beckel Slaps Around Eric Bolling On Trump Wiretapping Accusation

Look, I don’t care where you stand on Trump’s accusation that Obama wiretapped him. No matter what you believe, this beatdown of moron meathead Eric Bolling and equally vapid Kimberly Guilfoyle by Bob Beckel while Dana Perino laughs interiorly, is pretty… awesome.

Watch below, it gets crazy:

OK so here’s the deal. Dana Perino actually asks Bolling a really good question about Comey demanding the Justice Department rebuke Trump’s claim. And you know how I know it’s a good question? Because the meathead moron ignores it. Quite possibly because his two dimly-lit half-wits just couldn’t fire up the juice necessary to decipher the polysyllabic words she uses. This is a common problem for Bolling.

Literally, the idiot completely ignores the question and launches into some idiotic defense of Trump.

IN any case, the idiot rambles on, pretending that HE discovered something widely passed around on the internet that is intended to be the main proof of Trump’s assertion. It is this – there was a New York Times article that said there was wiretapping at Trump Tower right after his inaugural. Woah! Caught red-handed, right!! Well no.

Here’s why – we would expect intelligence services to listen in on the Russian ambassador when he calls American officials. Duh. We’d be pissed if they WEREN’T doing that. But that doesn’t mean they were literally, technically, wiretapping Trump Towers. What it means is that they wiretapped a guy that called someone in Trump Towers. That’s all. 

And, don’t forget, that until the Trump campaign was caught lying about it, they completely denied that ANYONE on the campaign talked to the Russians.

But, if you’re a Trump-humping hack like Bolling, you can deceive yourself into thinking that’s absolute proof.

Now, does that mean there’s no proof of wiretapping? Of course not. There’s just no absolute, case closed proof. So let’s get on with that investigation, shall we? I, for one, would love to find out more about what the intelligence services discovered about Trump’s connections to the Russians. And if we indict Obama on the way there, then that’s just a win-win as far as I’m concerned.

Finally, the lovely and brilliant Dana Perino had the best, most insightful, and incisive question of this entire episode. She asked what the reason might be that Trump doesn’t simply pick up the phone and ASK the intelligence agencies to give him ALL the info they have on Obama surveilling him. Gosh, that’s an excellent question, Dana!!

In fact it’s so good that Guilfoyle, the slightly more witted of the Trump-humping duo on the Five, acquiesced before her intellectual superior.

But of course, Bolling kept debating absurdities. And Beckel kept slapping him around.

So. Let’s start that investigation huh?

Is This Obama Statement Really a Denial Of Wiretapping Trump?

A spokesperson for Obama is denying the claims made by Prezzy Trumpo in his tirade this morning about wiretapping Trump Tower:

A spokesman for former President Obama issued a strong denial to President Trump’s accusation that the former commander-in-chief wiretapped Trump Tower phones during the election campaign.

“A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement Saturday. “As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

I wonder if that parsing is intentional. Much like Ben Rhodes’ statement, he’s just denying that Obama “ordered” wiretapping. That could be considered different from requesting permission from a fisa court to wiretap…

And then there’s this:

Favreau is a former Obama speechwriter, and it’s interesting that he’s also allowing for the possibility of wiretapping to have happened, but not necessarily “ordered” by Obama, or the White House.

That leaves open the opportunity for intelligence services to have sought wiretapping permission on their own….

Or maybe that’s just what they want us to think!!

Obama Guy Ben Rhodes, Who LIED to Get the Iran Deal Passed, Says Trump is Wrong

Former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes says that Trump is wrong about his contention that Obama ordered wiretapping on Trump Tower in a tweet tirade this morning:

He’s referencing this tweet:

BUT, to be fair to Trump, and you all know how much I hate having to do that, Ben Rhodes is nitpicking in order to deny the allegation, which may still be true.

Can president “order” a wiretap on citizens? Well, he can ask a fisa [foreign intelligence surveillance] court to wiretap citizens, which is what some reports say he did on Trump and his aides. So is Rhodes purposely lying here to smear Trump?


This is the same scumbag who LAUGHED about lying to idiot reporters about the Iran Deal to get it passed. AND he openly mocked them about it in the New York friggin’ Times. Do you think a scumbag who lied to get the Iran Deal passed MIGHT JUST be lying about this to make Trump look bad? Yeah, probably.

I’m watching CNN right now, and they’re quoting this a-hole without informing the audience about him lying for the Iran Deal. Pretty great press we got here, huh?

Moron kept tweeting:

Well. No, it’s not. But your guy, Obama called Bush “un-American,” so go to hell, you POS.

OK, this is the only one that comes close to the truth. As the evidence stands now, it’s basically from anonymous sources. Which, by the way, Trump decried, saying that the news shouldn’t be allowed to cite anonymous sources.

BUT, that doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen.

And the fact that Ben Rhodes purposely misleads people about wiretapping makes me think there might be something there…

Here’s The Evidence Obama Wiretapped Trump Tower…

The media is reporting that Trump made his wiretap accusations this morning without supplying any evidence, but they’re not admitting that there IS evidence it happened, only that Trump neglected to supply it.

The Guardian reported on the first wiretap request in January:

The Guardian has learned that the FBI applied for a warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court over the summer in order to monitor four members of the Trump team suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officials. The Fisa court turned down the application asking FBI counter-intelligence investigators to narrow its focus. According to one report, the FBI was finally granted a warrant in October, but that has not been confirmed, and it is not clear whether any warrant led to a full investigation.

They linked to this report from Heat Street, from November:

Mark Levin put all the pieces together in a segment on his radio show we posted yesterday. You can listen to it here. 

But this brings up a very important question – did Trump just confirm the wiretapping?

So the big question is if Trump is actually confirming the reports, or if he’s just going off the reports, without asking for confirmation from the intelligence agencies.

I suspect it’s the latter, just because this was tossed out in a morning tweet tirade. If he really thought this stuff, I would think he’d be demanding investigations not just making unsubstantiated allegations. But we’ll have to see. As it is, the media is freaking out over the accusations, and that’s all Trump needs to declare a victory.

You Need To Read This Twitter Response To Those Talking Down To Carryn Owens

Everyone is going to be talking about the pretty incredible moment President Trump let the country in honoring Carryn Owens, the widow of the Navy SEAL who died in the Yemen raid he ordered. Some are pointing out dismissively that Trump was just using her to clear his name about the Yemen raid.

They might be right, but the way they’ve been condescending to Owen is pretty terrible.

And Mary Katherine Ham obliterates them over it.

Just read:

Well, damn. That was almost as powerful as the first applause for Owens. And it’s made all the more moving because Ham herself is a widow and knows that pain more than most people.

In any case, I do think that there’s a chance Trump was using the extraordinary moment to clear his name about the raid. But, Ham is absolutely right that it doesn’t take away from the beautiful and wonderful moment where a nation came together to show its gratefulness for such a painful sacrifice.

We can do more than one thing at once, people.

Here’s the video of Trump honoring Carryn Owens:
