Where does John Durham go from here? – by Techno Fog – The Reactionary

Michael Sussmann has been indicted for lying to the FBI general counsel James Baker during a September 2016 meeting where he provided to Baker materials and information purported to link the Trump Organization with Russian entity Alfa Bank. In order to bolster the credibility of his claims, Sussmann told Baker he was acting on his own and not for any clients.This was a lie – Sussmann was acting on behalf of a tech executive and the Hillary Clinton campaign. According to Special Counsel John Durham, Sussmann would repeat this lie on February 9, 2017 to two employees of another government agency (“Agency-2” in the indictment; possibly CIA).The more interesting parts of the Sussmann indictment have to do with the orchestrated effort by Sussmann, the Clinton Campaign, a tech executive (identified as Rodney Joffe), their team of partisan researchers, and Fusion GPS to smear the Trump Organization – and thus candidate Trump – as having a “purported secret channel of communications” with Alfa Bank (a Russian bank). The highlights include:E-mails among the Tech Executive and the researchers stating how “it would be possible to “fill out a sales form on two websites, faking the other company’s email address in each form,’ and thereby cause them ‘to appear to communicate with each other in DNS.’”Internal doubts about the Trump Organization/Alfa Bank allegations: “we cannot technically make any claims that would fly public scrutiny.”Concerns over disclosing how they came to their conclusions: “Do you realize that we will have to expose every trick in our bag to even make a very weak association?”Importantly, there is a discussion of how they hid their doubts about their own work in order to present a more damning narrative for FBI review. Durham points to their internal e-mails stating: the Alfa Bank allegations were a “red herring” that should be “ignored”; that the allegations would “not fly in eyes of public scrutiny.” That describes a conspiracy.

‘Clinton indictment’ blows Russia collusion conspiracy wide open, top GOP investigator says | Washington Examiner

The cybersecurity lawyer indicted this week by a grand jury in special counsel John Durham’s investigation could end up being the “fall guy” for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, warned a top House Republican.Rep. Devin Nunes , the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, told Newsmax on Thursday there is evidence of a broad Russia collusion conspiracy — allegations the congressman’s team investigated and referred to the Justice Department . But Nunes cautioned that the Clintons “have a long history of their lawyers and agents disappearing.”

Biden Claims U.S. Has ‘Turned The Page’ On Afghanistan In U.N. Speech, Even As Americans Remain Stranded | The Daily Wire

President Joe Biden claimed, Tuesday, in a speech to the United Nations, that the United States has “turned the page” on the war in Afghanistan, even as dozens — and perhaps hundreds of Americans remain trapped behind enemy lines with the State Department unable to gain leverage over the Taliban to ensure evacuations.“We stand, in my view, at an inflection point in history. And I’m here today to share with you how the U.S. plans to stand with partners and allies in answering these questions,” Biden said, apparently directly addressing concerns from coalition partners raised following his administration’s decision to leave Afghanistan on a self-imposed timeline.“I stand here today for the first time in 20 years with the United States not at war. We’ve turned the page,” Biden claimed.“Twenty years of conflict in Afghanistan, and as we close this period of relentless war we’re opening a new era of relentless diplomacy,” Biden added. “Of using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people up around the world.”The U.S. government, however, is having difficulty “lifting up” Americans who are stranded in Afghanistan. Although the State Department initially claimed that between 100 and 200 Americans who wanted to leave the country remained following the American withdrawal, a more recent report noted that around 100 Americans still remain, even as around 100 have been rescued.

Kash Patel: Durham Probe Into Clinton Campaign Developing Into a “Very Well Laid-Out Conspiracy Charge” | Dan Bongino

Former Department of Justice Chief of Staff Kash Patel appeared on “America’s Newsroom” to discuss Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, telling host Dana Perino that it’s developing into a “very well laid-out conspiracy charge” against those involved.This comes following Durham indictment of Michael Sussmann on a false-statements count for his alleged lying to the FBI. The specific statement Sussman made to the FBI under question is in regards to a client’s identity from when he allegedly advanced bogus claims about mythical secret communications between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank before the 2016 election. It was during a meeting with former FBI Counsel James Baker in 2016 that Sussmann allegedly “relayed data and analysis from cybersecurity researchers who claimed that odd internet data was evidence of back-channel communications.”Susman is a partner at Perkins Coie, the law firm heavily relied upon by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Perkins Coie also has ties to Fusion GPS, the firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele, the man behind the discredited “Steele dossier” that compiled fictitious connections between Trump and the Russians.

Could Larry Elder Have Been the New Governor of California? How About the FUTURE Governor of Cali?

Larry Elder is a radical. This means he is not a liberal,Democrat or Marxist. In fact he’s so down to earth he could be your neighbor. He has never held office. He wasn’t 100% sold on running either; he had to be convinced he could actually help the state before he decided to run. He had a simple platform. It wasn’t overly ambitious but definitely consequential for the once golden state.It was the state everyone used to flock to. Now the people can’t get out fast enough. i know my own son had lived there for years.Raised his family there. He owned a house there and even he joined the exodus out. He’d had enough. i was a little taken aback; didn’t see that coming. He’s close to retirement so it’s a good move. He wants to live comfortably in his senior years. Makes sense. Can’t do that in California.That right there was one of the reasons Larry Elder was persuaded to run.The California Exodus.

The other reasons were failing schools, water shortages, rolling black outs, rampant homelessness, mismanagement of the forests and the high cost of housing/energy/taxes. The working definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results.Larry would have been a refreshing change.

There were people saying the election was rigged. It was. There were people saying there was fraud. There was.Elder said that they should lose graciously. He’s a class act.It’s not to say anything of those things didn’t happen but a 60% for Newsom and a 30% for recall is a little tough to overcome and blame on fraud. Somebody failed to vote and it wasn’t the Democrats.

It was a typical narrative about Elder. He is a radical. Could anyone possibly explain what is radical about Larry? They compared him to Trump. So what. Trump was a great President. Say what you like about Trump, he got things done. Biden isn’t a crisis per year; he’s been a crisis per week. The one respect elder was considerably similar to Trump [in] is that they are both outsiders-not under the influence of special interests and corporate donors. It’s why Trump’s motto was America First all along.

Then the media was telling people Elder was the black face of white supremacy. Who fell for this?

Newsom had unlimited resources so he could smear Elder all day long. It didn’t hurt that the media helped him out. Funny how it never occurred to the Democrat voters that Newsom was not running on his record. The worst lie was from the LA Times who put out a headline implying Elder was under investigation for assaulting a woman.

The actual attack is covered here:

The woman that the LA times implied was assaulted spoke out on Elder’s behalf:

This is the actual incident if the LA Times had bothered to be honest.

Elder obviously hugs the woman who is obviously a supporter. It’s the kind of journalism these liberal rags need sued for. How do you have free and fair elections with such egregious lies? It’s PROPAGANDA, not news.

On the plus side from his first run ever for office he has built a base. He is not ready to throw in the towel. He beat his Republican competition by double digits and did it without the support of the California Republican party. Should he run again they would be wise to get behind him. He told his supporters to ‘stay tuned’ during his concession speech.

Will He Run for Governor Again?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In a lengthy conversation, conservative talk show host Larry Elder said he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

When asked if he will run again for governor in 2022, Elder said “I am very likely to do that.”

“A lot of my contributors have asked me to stay in the game in the unlikely event that I don’t become governor after September the 14th,” he added. “So in all probability,  I will do just that.

Larry Elder said something else during the campaign that was very important. We vote,we win.

We can’t stay home because the election is rigged or there are corrupt people committing voter fraud. The Democrats always turn out the vote no matter how lousy their candidate is. In fact, if we know there’s fraud, if we know it’s rigged that gives us MORE reason to get out the vote. It’s not enough each of us votes-although it’s important-we have to get other people to vote too!

Donald Trump ran with all the odds against him. He had the establishment GOP opposing him. He had the Deep State on his tail. They were sure Hillary would win. Remember that-we vote, we win.

It’s a shame so many Republicans sat out the California election. We had a good man ready to turn California around and give the Republicans a Senate majority.
