Seymour Hersh on Seth Rich and Trumprussia

Seymour Hersh, the famous left-leaning but hard-hitting investigative journalist, has apparently endorsed the theory that Seth Rich was the DNC leaker. Big League Politics has an audio recording. Assuming it’s real,

  • Hersh claims to know from an FBI report, that was made when D.C. police called in an FBI cyber unit to look at Rich’s laptop after his death.
  • Hersh is skeptical of the idea that Seth Rich was murdered for political reasons – although Rich did express concerns to friends that something might happen to him.
  • Hersh suggests that Rich’s brother put up obstacles to investigating any Rich-WikiLeaks connection.
  • Hersh suggests that the Trump-Russia conspiracy allegations were disinformation planted by Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan. And that NSA and CIA types (what we call Deep State) are against Trump because, in some unspecified way (I’d like to know more), Trump ends their hopes of getting lucrative private consulting contracts on leaving the government.

Needless to say, if these claims are real, they blow Trumprussia out of the water.

I found it worthwhile to read BLP’s whole article and listen to the recording. UPDATE: Transcript here.

While we’re at it: We know that the House Intelligence Committee started to look into the “unmasking” scandal (where the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign; zealously doing surveillance and over-zealously “unmasking” the names of Trump operatives who were swept up in it). A key aide to Susan Rice and Obama, Ben Rhodes, has emerged as a ‘person of interest’ in that investigation.

This adds Rhodes to the growing list of top Obama government officials who may have improperly unmasked Americans in communications intercepted overseas by the NSA, Circa has confirmed…

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan have all been named in the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation…

…the committee has “found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Finally, they’re looking!

At the border

Via Judicial Watch (as the media doesn’t cover this). Since taking office, the Trump administration has systematically made life harder for gangs/cartels who traffic in people, drugs, etc. Today’s example:

In a major shift from lax Obama-era regulations, the Trump administration is finally allowing customs officers to screen all cargo trucks entering the U.S. from Mexico and sources on both sides of the border tell Judicial Watch Mexican drug cartels are fuming. U.S. Customs and Border Protection is using X-ray technology and other non-intrusive tools to screen 100% of cargo trucks crossing the southern border after eight years of sporadic or random screening permitted under the Obama administration.

“We felt like we were the welcoming committee and not like we were guarding our borders,” said veteran U.S. Customs agent Patricia Cramer…“The order was to facilitate traffic, not to stop any illegal drugs from entering the country,” Cramer added…

…a veteran Homeland Security official told Judicial Watch that cattle trucks passed without inspection during the Obama administration because Mexican farmers complained that the security screenings frightened their cows. “Our guys were livid that we were not allowed to check cattle,” the federal official said…

Federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch Mexican cartels operate like efficient businesses that resort to “other more treacherous routes” when necessary, but driving through a port of entry in a cargo truck is a preferred method of moving drugs…

It could also help to control human trafficking (like that recent incident). Think about it: It took Trump to do this. Obama could have; and he didn’t. Instead, Obama supplied arms to the cartels.

I have a constant suspicion that this kind of policy – plus some other specific, important things like wanting interventionism (Syria war), and wanting to keep hiding the Clinton scandals and the Awan scandal – would be why certain U.S. power players have been so desperate, all this time, to overturn the 2016 election and remove President Trump under any pretext.

What a real hate crime looks like – And real caring

A Trump supporter went to Milo’s book opening a few weeks ago. He wore a “Make America Great Again” hat. Afterward, he went out with friends to a bar in progressive, tolerant, liberal Manhattan. Inside the bar, a straight couple told him how they hated his hat, and him. Then proceeded to assault him and cut up his face with a broken bottle.

Fortunately, a plastic surgeon is working pro bono to fix the guy’s face.

This week on Game of Thrones

The recent White House shake-ups (resignations of Spicer, Priebus and Scaramucci) seemed to have driven the previous “Trump Jr” frenzy from the news. But it’s back. And all of it may be connected – on the themes of leakers, scheming advisers, and Trump (possibly) not being in control of his own crew.

The new brouhaha is a story from The Washington Post which claims that President Trump personally dictated the initial Trump Jr. statement about Trump Jr.’s short meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016. Naturally, WaPo tries to make it all sound worse than it is. The question arises: How did WaPo get the story?

One clue could be that the WaPo story praises Jared, Ivanka, and White House aides Hope Hicks and Josh Raffel. The praise is traditionally a signal that they are valued sources.

But the leakers of this particular story could be others. Cernovich claims that leaks are coming from White House interns, and/or civilians related to Air Force One. He says:

With Mooch out of the way, Jared Kushner’s interns feel free to record conversations and leak away. Indeed, people on Air Force One are leaking damaging stories to the Washington Post…

Pro-Trump interns were blocked by Kushner and Reince Preibus, as I reported back on May…These [actual, anti-Trump] interns are now recording White House conversations and sharing those recordings with the media…

Trump gave the power of personnel to swamp monster Johny DeStefano, who squeezed out Trump’s most loyal supporters…HR McMaster has also been hard at work purging the NSC of anyone who puts America First…McMaster has been pulling security clearances of Trump supporters…Never Trump’er Brian Hook is in complete control of the State Department…Hook is using this power to block Trump hires at State…Trump is being abused like a beta male by the GOP establishment, McMaster, and Never Trump’ers like Brian Hook.

Interesting, if true. Is it? All I know for the moment, is: Cernovich’s pattern is to wrap hyperbole around grains of truth that nobody else had (also known as “scoops”).

*IF* Trump’s presidency does fail in the end, the probable reason will be this set of issues: that his people were working at cross purposes, allowing The Swamp to infiltrate and consume them all.

Health Care Is Apparently a Conditional Right

If health care is a right, as the Democrat Socialists insists, then how come people who smoke or are overweight can be refused health care under a single payer system? Because, that’s what’s happening in the paragon of socialized medicine.

Obese people will be routinely refused operations across the NHS, health service bosses have warned, after one authority said it would limit procedures on an unprecedented scale.
