At least two separate news organizations are reporting that three distinct leakers have been identified at the White House and that President Donald Trump is expected to fire them when he returns from his first overseas trip.

CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration and are trying to damage the Trump presidency.”

In addition, this week, chief One America News Network (OANN) White House correspondent Trey Yingst also reported that three White House leakers have been identified and referred to the proper authorities.

Yingst wrote on Twitter that the three leakers have been carelessly leaking classified information to hurt President Trump politically and that Trump is expected to fire “multiple people” connected with the network of leakers upon his return to the White House:

Clinton launches an all-out attack on the president and his ‘obstruction of justice’… after breaking out in ANOTHER coughing fit on stage

Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up ‘obstruction of justice’ and warned of the steps to authoritarianism.

Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee’s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about.

‘We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,’ the defeated presidential candidate said – as members of the crowd at the liberal campus erupted into cheers.

Then she brought up Nixon’s ‘firing the the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice’ – a line that brought laughs and more cheers.

Both were obvious shots at Trump, who fired FBI Director James Comey in the midst of an agency probe of Russian meddling in the U.S. elections. The move brought parallels to Nixon’s ‘Saturday Night Massacre,’ when Nixon got rid of independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

As she addressed students, Clinton also pointed to the evolution of ‘authoritarian’ regimes, in a criticism of Trump’s constant attacks on the media and his critics.

‘When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society,’ she warned. ‘That is not hyperbole, it is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done.’ 

‘You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason,’ she told graduates, referencing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s defense of ‘alternative facts.’

‘We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice’

In yet another shot at Trump, Clinton said: ‘Some were even denying things we see with our own eyes, like the size of crowds.’ 

Clinton joked about her loss, but said she has had time for grandchildren and long walks in the woods. 'Chardonnay helped a little too,' she quipped

‘We got through that tumultuous time,’ she told the students, as she described the social conflicts during the late 1960s when she graduated.

‘We revved up the engine of imagination and innovation. We turned back a tide of intolerance and embraced inclusion,’ she said.

‘It was millions of ordinary citizens, especially young people, who voted, marched and organized’ to bring changes, she said.

Clinton served as a young staffer when the House Judiciary drew up articles of impeachment against Nixon and investigated his actions during Watergate.

She didn’t mention that her husband Bill Clinton was impeached during his second term, in an event that brought blowback for the Republicans who went after him.


What about Bill? Hillary Clinton forgot to mention her husband when speaking to grads about impeached presidents

What about Bill? Hillary Clinton forgot to mention her husband when speaking to grads about impeached presidents

Hillary Clinton suggested – slightly misleadingly – that Richard Nixon was impeached. In fact the process began, but the articles of impeachment were never voted on because of his resignation.

However she could have mentioned a much more recent president who definitely was impeached: her husband. 

And while she described Nixon’s presidency as ‘ending in obstruction of justice and impeachment’, she actually lived through her husband being tried in the Senate for precisely that charge.

It might come as little surprise that Hillary did not mention the painful episode, as it put her marriage on very public trial too.

Bill Clinton faced trial after the House of Representatives cited two articles of impeachment. He was charged with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice.

The trial hinged on whether or not he lied about having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. She was subpoenaed by Paula Jones who was suing Clinton for sexual harassment, which he denied.

Clinton famously said on TV: ‘I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky’, when speaking about the affair. He said the same thing in the deposition in the Jones lawsuit. 

But he later admitted to having ‘inappropriate’ contact with the then 21-year-old White House intern.

He said he had received oral sex from Lewinsky, but claimed he did not reciprocate. Whether that was a lie would hang on the definition of ‘sexual relations’.

The affair and the graphic sexual details were detailed in prosecutor Kenneth Starr’s report. 

It included the detail about Lewinsky’s blue dress stained with the president’s semen. It also detailed how he allegedly used a cigar as a sex toy with Lewinsky, and then put it in his mouth.

Clinton spoke live on TV in a closed-door testimony to a grand jury, but never used the word ‘sex’ when talking about his contact with Lewinsky.

President Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 for violating an act to replace a member of his cabinet

The reasons Starr outlined for impeachment in the report included perjury, obstruction of justice, witness-tampering and abuse of power. Clinton’s trial began on January 7, 1999 for articles one and three of impeachment.

On February 12, Clinton didn’t receive the two third majority vote from Congress to impeach. 

In total, 45 Democrats and 10 Republicans voted he was not guilty – making him the only president to survive an impeachment trial.

The other president who was fully impeached survived – even more narrowly. 

Andrew Johnson was Abraham Lincoln’s Vice President and came to power after his assassination in 1865.

At that time, Republicans had a majority hold on Congress. They passed the Tenure of Office Act in 1867 which prevented the president from kicking officials out of office who were appointed by the Senate.

Cabinet member, Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, disagreed with Johnson’s views on Reconstruction. Stanton was part of the radical Republican coalition which wanted to see a total end to slavery.

But Johnson’s Reconstruction policy was lenient and would have allowed local southern governments to enable ‘back codes’ which essentially preserved the practice of slavery. 

In the fall of 1867, Johnson tried to replace Stanton with Union General Ulysses S Grant. But the Supreme Court refused to rule on the case and Stanton kept his job.

Again, Johnson tried to get rid of Stanton by replacing him with General Lorenzo Thomas a few months later in 1868.  Stanton locked himself in his office and refused to leave his post.

Johnson was charged with obstruction of justice, and  Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase presided over Johnson’s impeachment. It was a public spectacle and Congressmen were deluged with requests for tickets.

On March 16, 35 senators voted to convict for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ while 19 voted to acquit – one more vote would have removed him from office but Johnson narrowly survived.

His reputation is another matter; he has repeatedly been named the worst president ever to lead the nation. 


Clinton began with remarks about the ‘amazing futures’ of school grads. She encouraged them to seek office and take other steps to make the world better.

It didn’t take long for her to break into a coughing fit, something that happened frequently during her campaign.

‘And I’ve gotta get a lozenge,’ she said, as the crowd clapped in support.

‘Whatever your path, you dreamed big,’ she told graduating students.

Back in 1969, Clinton spoke about the push and pull of politics to fellow graduates of her school.

‘We’ve had lots of empathy; we’ve had lots of sympathy, but we feel that for too long our leaders have viewed politics as the art of the possible,’ she said. ‘And the challenge now is to practice politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible possible.’

Clinton started her remarks with a familiar coughing fit, then took out a lozenge

Excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s 1969 Wellesley commencement speech

Even as she went after President Trump by alluding to crimes, she also made light of her defeat.

‘You may have heard that things didn’t go exactly the way I’ve planned. But you know what, I’m doing okay,’ she said to laughs.

‘I’ve gotten to spend time with my family, especially my amazing grandchildren,’ she said.

‘Long walks in the woods …  Organizing my closets … I won’t lie, Chardonnay helped a little too,’ she quipped.

Clinton brought up her ‘Onward together’ PAC, but provided little information about how it would work. She said it would involve recruiting candidates and other organizing.

[Salman] Abedi was given at least £7,000 from the taxpayer-funded Student Loans Company

Chris Menahan Information LiberationMAY 27, 2017

Taxpayer-funded student loans and other forms of government welfare were used to finance Salman Abedi’s suicide bombing attack in Manchester, according to police.

From The Telegraph:

[Salman] Abedi was given at least £7,000 from the taxpayer-funded Student Loans Company after beginning a business administration degree at Salford University in October 2015.

It is thought he received a further £7,000 in the 2016 academic year even though by then he had already dropped out of the course. Salford University declined to say if it had informed the Student Loans Company that Abedi’s funding should have been stopped.

Separately, the Department for Work and Pensions refused to say if Abedi had received any benefits, including housing benefit and income support worth up to £250 a week, during 2015 and 2016. It would only say he was not claiming benefits in the weeks before the attack.

Abedi, 22, never held down a job, according to neighbours and friends, but was able to travel regularly between the UK and Libya.

Abedi also had sufficient funds to buy materials for his sophisticated bomb while living in a rented house in south Manchester.

Six weeks before the bombing Abedi rented a second property in a block of flats in Blackley eight miles from his home, paying £700 in cash.

He had enough money to rent a third property in the centre of Manchester from where he set off with a backpack containing the bomb.

Abedi also withdrew £250 in cash three days before the attack and transferred £2,500 to his younger brother Hashim in Libya, who is accused of knowing about the attack in advance.

This same scam is being run again and again:

David Videcette, a former Metropolitan police detective who worked on the 7/7 London bombing investigation, said of the student loans’ system: “It is an easy way for a terrorist to move forward and finance their activities at the expense of the taxpayer.

“All you have got to do is get yourself into university and then off you go. Often they have go no intention of turning up.”

Professor Anthony Glees, director of Buckingham University’s Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies, said: “The British system makes funds readily available to jihadist students without checks on them. There needs to be an inquiry into this.”

Abedi father and brother were both arrested on suspicion of being involved in the attack.

Abedi’s brother reportedly spoke to him “minutes” before the attack.

22 people, including many children, were killed in Monday’s attack and dozens more were injured.

Not mentioned in this report is that Abedi’s parents were accepted into the UK as so-called “refugees” from Libya, which no doubt entailed their family collecting tens of thousands more pounds in welfare.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Preparing for North Korea‘s growing threat, the Pentagon will try to shoot down an intercontinental-range missile for the first time in a test next week. The goal is to more closely simulate a North Korean ICBM aimed at the U.S. homeland, officials said Friday

The American interceptor has a spotty track record, succeeding in nine of 17 attempts against missiles of less-then-intercontinental range since 1999. The most recent test, in June 2014, was a success, but that followed three straight failures. The system has evolved from the multibillion-dollar effort triggered by President Ronald Reagan’s 1983 push for a “Star Wars” solution to ballistic missile threats during the Cold War – when the Soviet Union was the only major worry.

North Korea is now the focus of U.S. efforts because its leader, Kim Jong Un, has vowed to field a nuclear-armed missile capable of reaching American territory. He has yet to test an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, but Pentagon officials believe he is speeding in that direction.

Marine Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said this week that “left unchecked,” Kim will eventually succeed.

The Pentagon has a variety of missile defense systems, but the one designed with a potential North Korean ICBM in mind is perhaps the most technologically challenging. Critics say it also is the least reliable.

The basic defensive idea is to fire a rocket into space upon warning of a hostile missile launch. The rocket releases a 5-foot-long device called a “kill vehicle” that uses internal guidance systems to steer into the path of the oncoming missile’s warhead, destroying it by force of impact. Officially known as the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, the Pentagon likens it to hitting a bullet with a bullet.

The Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, which is responsible for developing and testing the system, has scheduled the intercept test for Tuesday.

An interceptor is to be launched from an underground silo at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and soar toward the target, which will be fired from a test range on Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific. If all goes as planned, the “kill vehicle” will slam into the ICBM-like target’s mock warhead high over the Pacific Ocean.

The target will be a custom-made missile meant to simulate an ICBM, meaning it will fly faster than missiles used in previous intercept tests, according to Christopher Johnson, spokesman for the Missile Defense Agency. The target is not a mock-up of an actual North Korean ICBM.

“We conduct increasingly complex test scenarios as the program matures and advances,” Johnson said Friday. “Testing against an ICBM-type threat is the next step in that process.”

Officials say this is not a make-or-break test.

While it wasn’t scheduled with the expectation of an imminent North Korean missile threat, the military will closely watch whether it shows progress toward the stated goal of being able to reliably shoot down a small number of ICBMs targeting the United States. The Pentagon is thirsting for a success story amid growing fears about North Korea’s escalating capability.

“I can’t imagine what they’re going to say if it fails,” said Philip Coyle, senior science fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. He headed the Pentagon’s office of operational test and evaluation from 1994 to 2001 and has closely studied the missile defense system.

“These tests are scripted for success, and what’s been astonishing to me is that so many of them have failed,” Coyle said.

The interceptor system has been in place since 2004, but it has never been used in combat or fully tested. There currently are 32 interceptors in silos at Fort Greely in Alaska and four at Vandenberg, north of Los Angeles. The Pentagon says it will have eight more, for a total of 44, by the end of this year.

In its 2018 budget presented to Congress this week, the Pentagon proposed spending $7.9 billion on missile defense, including $1.5 billion for the ground-based midcourse defense program. Other elements of that effort include the Patriot designed to shoot down short-range ballistic missiles and the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, which the U.S. has installed in South Korea as defense against medium-range North Korean missiles.

The Trump administration has yet to announce its intentions on missile defense.

President Donald Trump recently ordered the Pentagon to undertake a ballistic missile defense review. Some experts argue the current strategy for shooting down ICBM-range missiles, focused on the silo-based interceptors, is overly expensive and inadequate. They say a more fruitful approach would be to destroy or disable such missiles before they can be launched, possibly by cyberattack.

Exclusive — Rand Paul: Paris Climate Deal Would Kill 6 Million American Jobs

by MATTHEW BOYLE 26 May 2017

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), a leading ally of President Donald Trump’s in the U.S. Senate, told Breitbart News exclusively in an interview in his office this week that at least six million U.S. jobs are at risk if President Trump does not pull out of the leftist Paris climate deal.
Paul told Breitbart News of the Paris deal:

I think it would be terrible for our country. We have the potential of losing 6 million jobs and it would cost $3 trillion. Really, I don’t think President Obama had the right to do it. He did it by himself without the approval of Congress. One of the problems we have in government is we let one person have so much power that he could do something that could cost 6 million jobs and nobody gets to vote on it—I think that’s outrageous. It kind of looks like a treaty. If it’s a treaty, it should come to the Senate and be passed. But I think President Trump has the ability and he indicated during the campaign that he wanted to get rid of and get out of the Paris accord so we hope we will. We have introduced a resolution to send it to the president to encourage him to get out of the Paris accord.

President Trump promised the American people during the 2016 presidential campaign he would pull out of the Paris deal since it is a job-killer. Paul was not sure why Trump has not yet pulled out, since it would be very easy for him to do so to unleash the U.S. economy and protect jobs, but he said Senate Republicans stand ready to back up the President when he does pull out of the deal.

“He has a few other things on his plate, maybe,” Paul said when asked why Trump has not yet pulled out of the Paris deal. “I don’t have an answer to that. We want to encourage him and let him know we have his back and are going to point out how terrible it is for our jobs in America.”

Paul’s interview with Breitbart News on this front came as a group of 22 Senate Republicans including Paul and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote to President Trump this week urging him to pull the United States out of the job-crushing Paris climate deal. In the letter, they detail how the institutional left—Trump’s sworn political enemies—are using the deal to gain power. Paul, in his interview with Breitbart News, adds that the deal helps benefit other countries like China at the expense of the United States—something Trump ardently campaigned against.

“They say that basically we have caps to lower our emissions, but China doesn’t have to live by any caps, so that doesn’t seem very fair,” Paul said. “The caps are essentially you have to cut your industry. If you cut your industry, you cut jobs. Particularly in my state, Kentucky, the Obamas and Clintons have devastated our state already with the war on coal. We don’t need to continue that war. What we really need is to get the government out of the way so we can get back to producing energy.”

Paul also wrote an op-ed in Fox News about this topic.


Thought police blocking public debate over terrorism’s root causes

| – MAY 26, 2017

Commentary in the wake of Monday’s bombing jihad in Manchester is being carefully patrolled, and politically incorrect ‘voices of dissent’ are being crushed as the UK thought police seek to disguise the root causes of successive terrorist attacks on UK soil.

Prominent journalist and talk show host Katie Hopkins has been forced to leave Leading Britain’s Conversation (LBC) radio after comments and tweets she made this week were reported to Metropolitan Police, who launched an investigation into the matter.

“LBC and Katie Hopkins have agreed that Katie will leave LBC effective immediately,” said an LBC spokesman.

The news of Hopkins’ departure from LBC comes just days after it was discovered that authorities were actively investigating the Daily Mail columnist for her ‘inflammatory’ tweets.

Hopkins first tweeted, then deleted, about the need for a “final solution” to the slew of jihadist attacks in the UK, later posting a less implicated call for action from “Western men.”

Hopkins clarified her meaning of “final solution” in an interview with Tucker Carlson, saying, “What I meant was, we need a lasting solution – a resolution to this.”

Both tweets were forwarded to the Met Contact Center by an authoritarian leftist who threatened Hopkins with “a spell behind bars.”

Screen Shot 2017-05-26 at 10.49.05 AM

“Police have already opened one investigating into Mail Online columnist Katie Hopkins after she said Western men need to ‘demand action’ in response to the terrorist nail bomb attack which targeted children leaving an Ariana Grande concert,” reported Infowars’ Kit Daniels. “It’s mind blowing that London police will spend manpower censoring free speech on Twitter while children are being targeted in terrorist attacks, but this isn’t accidental.”

“By preventing people from speaking out against the government policies that fuel terrorism, the establishment can condition the public into believing they are helpless in stopping the flood of military-age migrants into the country.”

Mainstream media is also doing its part to obstruct the public from engaging in an open dialogue about terrorism in the West, as outlets like the Daily Express are closing the comments sections on their articles on the bombing – a common tactic by the MSM when they seek to obfuscate information that commenters are likely to share with each other that could cast a shadow of doubt on the original content.

“With trust in mainstream media plummeting, the real goal behind the censorship and in some cases entire removal of comment sections is to manipulate public opinion,” writes Paul Joseph Watson on the matter. “The credibility of the article in question is largely dependent on the tone of the comments left in response. The more negative, uncivil and ‘toxic’ the tone, the less likely the reader is to trust the article and the publication.”

Watson’s article cited a study in the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communications which found that, “People reacted neutrally when comments were disabled, but even when comments were generally positive their reactions did not noticeably improve. However, when the reader feedback took on a ‘less civil’ tone with people questioning the merits of nanotechnology, user perception of the publication itself (not just the topic discussed) took a decidedly negative turn.”

The concept of ‘political correctness’ – essentially developed by mass murdering Chinese dictator Mao Zedong – empowers leftists and statists to silence those with whom they disagree by attacking their positions – or even their character – as ‘racist,’ ‘bigoted,’ ‘Islamophobic,’ etc.

The truth about political correctness is that it is a technique designed to mold public opinion to match that of the government’s – and purge those which do not.
