Politico posted that Nunes was really behind the site, ************.com was taken down and now redirects to a Facebook page announcing that the site is offline due to “ heavy traffic” and an “attack” on their servers.


https://www.theroot.com/devin-nunes-...own-1822933922

Resembling a local, conservative news site, “The California Republican” is classified on Facebook as a “media/news company” and claims to deliver “the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis."


But the website is paid for by Nunes’ campaign committee, according to small print at the bottom of the site.


Paid for by the Devin Nunes Campaign Committee


Reached Saturday, Tavlian said his company registered several domains for Nunes’ campaign. But he said he did not manage “The California Republican” and was unfamiliar with it.


But Andrew Janz, Nunes’ main Democratic challenger in his reelection bid, did not hold back. Told of the website’s existence by POLITICO, he derided the publication as “typical Devin Nunes.”


https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...ws-site-402097


Nunes certainly isn’t representing his Central Valley constituents or Californians, who care much more about health care, jobs and, yes, protecting Dreamers than about the latest conspiracy theory.

Instead, he’s doing dirty work for House Republican leaders trying to protect President Donald Trump in the Russia investigation.

Many of the posts link out to conservative sites like National Review and The Federalist, and the Facebook page for the site labels it a media/news company that is focused on "delivering the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis."



Following the Politico report, the website was throwing up error messages, although an archive of it was available.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/11/polit...ite/index.html



Nunes has three college degrees—all in agriculture. Which obviously makes him outstanding in the field of out standing in a field, but none of which suggests he’s in any way qualified to take over the role of handling intelligence intelligently. In fact, Nunes’ tactics do resemble those of a bull—blindly charging ahead, going all in on one lie after another—and creating a lot of bullshit in the process.

Devin Nunes held two news conferences to “break the news” of the fake scandal of unmasking. Then he went to the White House to conduct a fake “briefing” for the people he’d worked with create the fake scandal. Then Nunes announced three fake investigations into the Uranium One fake scandal based on shocking new testimony that has already proven to be a fake. Then Nunes drafted a fake memo to support fake allegations against the FBI and DOJ. And now he’s started a fake news site spreading fake stories.

All of which suggests two things: First, Devin Nunes took the stories of Russia’s actions before the 2016 election as a How-To guide. And second … you really, really should think twice before eating any of Devin Nunes’ dairy products.

Russian Networks Pushing #ReleaseTheMemo Meme

19 January 2018


Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence operations are pushing a conservative meme related to the investigation of Russian election interference, researchers say.

The purported Russian activity involves the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo, a reference to a secret congressional report about President Donald Trump’s allegations that he was wiretapped by the Obama administration. A group that tracks Russian-linked social media influence campaigns says the volume of Russian-related #ReleaseTheMemo traffic represents the most coordinated such effort since their website launched in early August.

“I’ve never seen any single hashtag that has had this amount of activity behind it,” said Bret Schafer, an analyst who helps runs the Hamilton 68 dashboard , a project with the Alliance for Securing Democracy at the German Marshall Fund. It tracks about 600 accounts that it says are tied to Russian-sponsored influence and disinformation campaigns; most of those accounts were promoting the same meme Friday.

yikes!


A part of a deal to return stolen American cyber-weapons, a Russian national was able to get $100,000 from the American government after a hotel room meeting in Germany. But that’s only part of the story: As the New York Times’ Matthew Rosenberg reported on Friday, the Russian also wanted to pass along compromising information about President Trump to American intelligence operatives, including what the Russian said was a video of the unproven (and yet infamous) hotel room urination incident in Moscow. The Americans resisted receiving the information, fearing both that it was fake, and that it would be used to create rifts within the American government. The whole story, and James Risen’s Intercept piece on the same subject, which landed earlier on Friday, must be read in full to be believed.

Matthew Rosenberg: It’s a really weird one, and it’s a hard one to do in 15 seconds. But let me see if I can try. The topline is that American spies went out looking for these hacking tools that the NSA had created that had been stolen. And they found a Russian who said he could sell it all, but said, “You are also going to get all the kompromat on Donald Trump. The sex tape. All of it.” The Americans were like, “Oh, God, we don’t really want that, we want those hacking tools,” so they kept negotiating.

Now look—is this stuff real? We don’t know. No sex tape ever appeared. It’s a bunch of other records that haven’t been verified.


And there was a weird tape without sex that was watched by an American businessman at the Russian embassy in Berlin.

Yeah—and who knows what that was? And my suspicion, honestly: If somebody had that tape out there, given the kind of money people like Larry Flynt are offering, never mind private buyers, they would have sold it by now. You are talking about people who could make tens of millions of dollars and these guys are just hanging out showing 15-second clips at the Russian embassy in Berlin? That seems a little …

U.S. SECRETLY NEGOTIATED WITH RUSSIANS TO BUY STOLEN NSA DOCUMENTS — AND THE RUSSIANS OFFERED TRUMP-RELATED MATERIAL, TOO

February 9 2018

U.S. officials wanted to identify which NSA documents the Shadow Brokers had stolen, so they could determine how badly the agency had been damaged by the theft.


A Russian who has been acting as a go-between for other Russians with access to Russian government materials has sought payment for the materials he is offering. In an extensive interview with The Intercept in Germany, the Russian intermediary provided detailed information about the channel. When contacted by The Intercept for this story, the American intermediary declined to comment.

It is not clear whether those documents are in possession of American officials. It is also unclear whether the secret channel has helped the U.S. recover significant amounts of data from the NSA documents believed to have been stolen by the Shadow Brokers.

Russian began passing information to the American intermediary that was unrelated to the Shadow Brokers, including the names of specific individuals and corporate entities allegedly tied to Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. The American intermediary turned the information over to U.S. intelligence for the purpose of determining the Russian’s credibility. U.S. intelligence officials continued to stress that they were only interested in recovering stolen U.S. data. Still, it was understood that if the Russian provided material related to Trump, the American intermediary would debrief U.S. officials on its content.

President Obama's years in office did not present drama as the main focus. The Republicans provided drama.


Emperor Carrot Head must have a new drama, every week. As if it were a long-running series, consisting of mini-series.

Does it seem as if a character is killed off and erased, every week ?

Characters do return, for short stints.


Kellyanne Conway and Anthony Scaramucci popped up like prairie dogs, to push tye drama along.

John Kelly Seems Not Long for This White House
The prognosis is...not good

https://www.esquire.com/news-politic...r-white-house/

Quote:
It's almost like electing a relentlessly petty and emotionally needy president has consequences. You can see, in a grotesque way, why Kelly clung to Porter even after what he learned about him. 17 senior officials have already left this administration, and many of the people who have skulked the halls of the White House in recent months are shall-we-say unconventional picks. Take Omarosa, for example, whom Kelly had a lot less compunction about kicking to the curb

gsgs comment-Omarosa Manigault is helping to keep the drama alive, and she is directing attention towards the White House.


gsgs comment-

Something that I had not expected to see-considering that the central drama concerns Russia-

February 8, 2018


President Donald Trump will attend the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, a prime networking opportunity for Beltway insiders. But this year's event is also an opportunity for dozens of Russians. As many as 60 representatives from Russia's religious and political elite are expected to attend, more than three times last year's number, according to Russian officials.

The spike in the number of Russians attending the event compared to last year comes amid multiple ongoing investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as continued fallout from Russian interference in the 2016 election.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/07/polit...ast/index.html


Rob Porter and Emperor Carrot Head have had a long association


Despite his title of staff secretary, and low profile, Porter was a key gatekeeper in the West Wing and worked closely with Kelly to impose order on Trump’s White House, overseeing the flow of paperwork to Trump’s desk, traveling with the president, and helping to craft last month’s State of the Union address.

The Nunes memo served its purpose, and Nunes proved his worth to Trump. We moved on to the Democrats effort to present the truth, with their own memo.

Nunes soldiered on, with his under-the radar website

Kevin Nunes’ Fake News Site Suggests Male Privilege Doesn’t Exist


Lowlights from its short-lived Twitter feed


"...this week, what was formerly known as @CaRepublicanCom went dark."

https://www.motherjones.com/politics...-doesnt-exist/



John Kelly's false front peeled away, and we have all witnessed the withering image of virtue. John Kelly is occupying headlines, now that Rob Porter had his veneer removed by exposure.

John Kelly is trumpeting the song that all Trump's core supporters want to hear. A counterpoint to battle the messages of Black History month. There are plenty of headlines generated by the Trump White House loyalists. The drums for arguments against the investigation of the Russian issues have been beaten steadily.


Today's issue-

Will John Kelly will fall on his sword, to keep the charade alive?

The Democrats. are not taking the manoeuvres to keep their memo out of the public eye, lying down-

Democrats Negotiating With FBI on Memo


The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that he is continuing to negotiate with the FBI over the release of a memo about secret surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser.

https://www.usnews.com/news/world/ar...th-fbi-on-memo

On with the show!

Sadly, Mike Pence and Donald Trump Jr. slobbered their toad tongues all over the Olympics.

Trump supporters used the Parkland FL tragedy for LAWLs

Everything is an opportunity to troll.

*sigh*

The young people were dying, when they were doing this.

George David Banks (lobbyist from American Council for Capitol Formation) who had served since February 2017 as special assistant to the president for international energy and environmental policy, told POLITICO that he was informed by the White House counsel’s office Tuesday that his application for a permanent clearance would not be granted over his past marijuana use.

Orange Lump, tRump

He had a sharpened stick, with intentions to use it to on the American public , and capture their attention.

He will not be ignored! (Shades of Bunny-Killer drag queen ?)

Trump Now Claims He Never Said There Was No Meddling By Russia, But He Did

2/18/18

Trump’s assertion that he has never dismissed the idea that Russia tried to meddle in the election comes in stark contrast with previous comments he has made on the subject; which he has referred to a hoax, fake news, and a witchhunt on various occasions.

"...at multiple points since then he has denied Russian meddling outright. In February 2017, he tweeted, “Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!” He has worked to sow doubt about it. In November 2017, he made a hair-splitting comment, saying Vladimir Putin denied interference and adding, “I believe, I really believe that when he tells me that he means it.”

The U.S. is obviously deeply divided over Russian interference, and Trump continues to play a central role in ensuring that remains the case.

The leader acts by believing the nation's enemy's spymasters rather than his own. That's not sad. That's not pathetic. That's treasonous.

"Did Russian agents, colluding with the Tromp campaign, try to throw the 2016 election?" is no longer at question. The answer is yes. The question is, did they succeed? Did the military data attacks cause Tromp's technical win? Did Putin install the Tromp regime?

If the answer is yes, what then?
