I saw a cartoon once where Shazam fights Superman, and Superman is holding him down while on top of him and punching him. And Shazam looks up at him and says "SHAZAM!", and that lightning bolt comes out of the heavens and strikes Superman, which sort of hurts him. And he keeps saying it over and over again.... read more

André Prager turns away from me for a moment, rummaging through a pile of stuff on the cart he has pulled into the small conference room. There are lots of cut-up pieces of cardboard, with a few bags of colorful plastic odds and ends mixed in. "I think the most valuable things in this building are cardboard and tape," he says. He shows me a rectangle of foam-core with a straw, a broken pen, and a few thumb tacks stuck to it. read more

The Trump-Russia sleuthers have been back in the news, again giving Americans cause to doubt their claims of nonpartisanship. Last week it was Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok testifying to Congress that he harbored no bias against a president he still describes as "horrible" and "disgusting." This week it was former FBI Director Jim Comey tweet-lecturing Americans on their duty to vote Democratic in November. But the man who deserves a belated bit of scrutiny is former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan. He's accused President Trump of "venality, moral turpitude and political corruption," and berated GOP investigations of the FBI. This week he claimed on Twitter that Mr. Trump's press conference in Helsinki was "nothing short of treasonous." This is rough stuff, even for an Obama partisan. read more

Eight months pregnant, the drug sales representative wore a wire for the FBI around her bulging belly as she recorded conversations with colleagues at a conference in Chicago. Her code name? Pampers. Her company, drugmaker Warner Chilcott, was using payments and perks to get doctors to prescribe its drugs. Then its sales representatives gave nurses hot tips about what kind of symptoms would get Medicaid to pay for the drugs. The representatives also violated privacy laws by going through patient files and kept fax machines in their cars to fill out the paperwork meant for doctors. read more

The Department of Justice late Friday released via the FBI's FOIA Vault a redacted copy of the Carter Page FISA warrant application and several renewals, which accuse Page of being a Russian spy, as summarized by the New York Times - which obtained a copy of the materials through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. Of note, in the nearly two years since the application was filed, Page hasn't been charged with any of the allegations contained within it. read more

Can you find that for me, because I don't think your out of context broken quotes means what you think they mean. Otherwise, Mueller would have subpoenaed him, like he would have every person we know about that pretended to be Russian agents as they tried to contact the Trump team. So stop jerking me around.

Also, this: "I don't believe your first claim has been factually proven yet, and the fact that Professor Misfud hasn't been heard from in a while is not evidence per se that he wasn't working for the Russian. It could actually be evidence that he was."

So where is Misfud? And why won't Mueller subpoena all the other "Russian spies"? Because, you know, they might have actually been working for the Russians and using their connections to Western intelligence agencies and Fusion GPS and Hillary as deep cover, so that might be important. For God's sake, the future of democracy is at stake here!

From www.bbc.com

"In April 2016 in the run-up to the American election, Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos says Mifsud told him that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails, according to court documents.

That conversation, which Papadopoulos carelessly relayed to an Australian over drinks in a posh London bar, was reported to American officials weeks later when emails hacked from the Democratic Party were leaked."

Also, that Australian ambassador is very strongly linked by lots of cash to Hillary.

From thehill.com

"The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton's charitable efforts, documents show."

So yeah, I would run for it too.

Everybody is in this stinking pile is tied to Hillary. Nobody is tied to Putin. Why can't you see what's going on?

Found it, #7. outline.com

I think this is the whole column. It's what I saw in comments on my other blog. Plus missing stuff.

None of the people who contacted Trumps campaign people turned out to be Russian agents. One guy even went into hiding (or is dead).

And since we know the names of these people, why hasn't Mueller subpoenaed them to testify? Why doesn't he subpoena that British ambassador that received the DNC emails that worked for Wikileaks, or Julian Assange, since they are supposed to be a Russian front organization, but unlike those 12 Russian guys from 4 days ago, we can get to them?

From thehill.com

"The heavily redacted application materials - 412 pages, including an initial application and several applications to renew the surveillance - indicate that the FBI "believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government ... to undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election in violation of U.S. criminal law."

Also, somebody was definitely leaking parts of the dossier to the press. And remember that story about how Alpha Bank was contacting the server in Trump tower? Read this: theintercept.com

Even snopes thinks it's "unproven", but doesn't go into the depth the Intercept does.

Trump was set up. And it's going to come out who was behind all this.
