Here is the last of the history of the far right. We will cover from 2000 on.

We started out center right and stayed that way through the Bush years. With the election of Obama we moved to center, but we saw the start of the Tea Party which was far right. With election of Trump we became far right in Fed. government. That is a quick overview.

 

When Bush became President were center right but a new group was coming to power. The neo-cons. The path they followed was one of foreign expansion, and control which they called leadership. When 9-11 happened the country was in a mood to buy what the Neo-cons were advocating. We saw our push in to Afg. to get the group that caused 9/11, but we then stayed. Iraq was invaded based on false information given to the people by the neo-cons. We were in what seemed to be a never ending war. Into Bush second term we saw quite a few neo-cons depart the govt., and be replaced by people from the Bush 1 admin. This produced a new outlook on our foreign policy. Our economy started to strain. We had a tax cut, a war not paid for, and the relestate bubble. That ended in the bust and we were headed for a depression. Bush put into place at the very end measures to stem the decline, and Obama put into place measures to get us out, and produce the good times we enjoy today. There was an overlap in the people brought in to fix the problems.

When Obama came to office his main task was the economy, and he did well as we know from the current state of it. Obama was our first black President and sadly the far right became very active in the Reb. party and opposed everything he tried to do, and did everything they could to destroy his presidency. We got the first full overhaul of the health care system. We ended our involvement  on a day to day basis in Iraq, and cut back in AFG. As Obama was ready to leave Office the far right took over the Reb. party and found a leader in Donald Trump.

Trump was elected and his first year has been troubling. Germany became the most respected country in the world. Russia has taken back leadership in a number of areas, and China looks more and more like the new world leader.

Time will tell

House Intel votes to release controversial surveillance memo to the public

 

 

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

 

The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.

 

President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

 

Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.

 

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

 

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump "dossier" played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

 

Schiff said the GOP-majority committee also voted against releasing a counter memo written by Democrats.

 

“Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the national interests,” the Democrat said.

 

The vote came the same day that it was reported that FBI official Andrew McCabe has left his post as deputy director.

 

The White House seems to favor the memo's release, but wouldn’t explicitly say whether the president will back the effort.

 

“We want full transparency,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. “That's what we have said all along.”

 

Sanders said they were letting the process play out before officially weighing in.

 

On Sunday, FBI Director Christopher Wray went to the Capitol on Sunday to view the four-page memo, sources told Fox News.

 

According to one source, Wray was asked to point out inaccuracies or other issues with the wording -- and said he would need “his people to take a look at it.” The source said the review is ongoing.

 

South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, who helped write the four-page memo, said Sunday he wants it made public.

 

He also suggested the memo indeed addresses whether the FBI relied at least in part on the dossier -- paid for partially by Democrats and the Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election -- to apply to a secret federal court to get a surveillance warrant, purportedly on then-Trump adviser Carter Page.

 

“If you … want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used. … If you are interested in who paid for the dossier … then, yes, you'll want the memo to come out,” Gowdy told “Fox News Sunday.”

 

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained opposition research on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Steele was hired by the U.S. firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the research with funding from the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. At the same time, the firm was allegedly doing work to help the Russian government fight sanctions.

 

Requests for surveillance warrants are made through the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, also known as the FISA court, and target suspected foreign spies inside the United States.

You didnt mention Schiff has a memo too, and house republicans declined to let it be released. why did they do that?


I have no idea...  It would be OK with me if he puts his out too. Transparency in government will be good for the country.  Law and order must be restored.  

 

The corruption in the high levels of our FBI, DOJ, IRS and others needs to be exposed and the American people need to know what has taken place.  I can assure you the Rank In File agents that make up 99% of these agencies are rock solid and deserve better leadership than what they have had to deal with for the past decade.

 

The law breakers need to be fired and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.  Regardless of what party they are affiliated with.

 

If this in fact takes place it will go a long way towards restoring the peoples faith in Government.  If it does not the people will become even more skeptical than they are now.

Trump Cult members are so worried about their hero in the White House that they cling to every hope given to them by right wing media in an attempt to smear the FBI and Director Mueller. Trump Cult members lost their moral compass a long time ago. That's assuming they ever had one. 

 

They will do anything to defend their idol and hero in the White House. Oh I forgot, there's one thing they will never do and that is examine the facts. Why? Because the truth is not important to them.


Interesting - we "deplorables" have lost our moral compass but, the IRS lost subpoenaed emails, the Dept. of State lost subpoenaed emails and now:

That "moral compass" stuff is, of course, subjective. But the real information in real emails seems to have represented a real "loseable" for the Obama Administration.


since we are going back in time about emails...22 million white house emails on the RNC server during the bush admin..before and during the iraq war. so ya know..moral comapss..repulicans lose 18 minutes of tape too.

 


And yes Nixon "lost" 18 minutes of tape. Your point?? Are you approving of all the missing information that we have a right to know about? And, some of which effect the current efforts to impeach the President.


Cherry picking what to investigate is not justice. Its partisan hackery. If you think Nunes and his staff are the better qualified non partisan investigators, you arent interested in justice either. AGAIN..Republicans selectively use ALLEGATIONS as proof of guilt. Nunes says the FBI is guilty and the Russia investigation should be dropped because its all false allegations. Its the tiny hands thing..Repulicans think the have a bigger allegation. If CLinton is ever found guilty of anything i will be the first to say hey..i guess she did that. If 25 years of clinton allegations didnt bother you, why are you so bothered by allegations in an investigation that has ALREADY led to guilty pleas? You just aint reality based.

So it begins.

jim - He (gowdy)  also suggested the memo indeed addresses whether the FBI relied at least in part on the dossier -- to apply to a secret federal court to get a surveillance warrant, purportedly on then-Trump adviser Carter Page.

 

Tonight Maddow reports the FBI has had continuing, every 90 day renewal, survellience on C.Page due to his Russian activities since 2013.  But still, dt welcomes him into the fold of Chaos as one of his "foreign advisors" where naturally he fit right in.  When it was time again and now his turn to further the okay of monitoring of C.Page, Rosenstein did that.  dt's sheer stupidity has no more excuses.

 

Carter Page and russian influence

The case of Evgeny Buryakov, a Russian intelligence officer operating under the non-official cover of a banker within a Russian bank in New York percolated to the forefront when Carter Page, a onetime advisor to then candidate Donald Trump, self-identified himself as “Male-1” in the January 23, 2015 criminal complaint from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

https://news.clearancejobs.com/2017/04/19/why-security-clearance-holders-are-required-to-report-fore...

 

John258 - The Dem put together a memo that refutes the Reb. one, but they will not release that one. Wonder why?

The Republican purpoted "Transparency" belongs to the "I have the best words ever" lying dt.  Up yours to the FBI and Justice, now supposedly under investigation and who are also not allowed to a vetting "review" before the 4 pages of the memo are released.  This IS standing in the street shooting people, national security be hanged.  Obstruction of justice has always been dt's intentions.

No he is what people call a far right nut. You do know the J D has told them not to release it. Trump put into place the people saying do not release it. The memo was written by the Reb. chairman and his what he says is in the memo. Fact is his staff wrote it, and he has not read a lot of the real material himself. The Dem put together a memo that refutes the Reb. one, but they will not release that one. Wounder why? Once again the far right at work.

On joy! We now get to read Nunes' latest attempt to protect Trump first hand. 

 

Releasing this hit piece authored by Nunes will only give the Trump supporters more 'fake news' to pass around. How about releasing the actual report that was furnished to the Committee?
