- On August 3, 2016, the Russiagate allegations were briefed to President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and FBI Director James Comey
by CIA Director John Brennan at an Oval Office meeting.
- None of the men briefed, and none of the agencies involved, intervened in the FBI’s efforts, alongside the Clinton Campaign ..
to manufacture collusion between Trump and Russia
Everyone allowed the falsehoods to linger into the Mueller report, and when that document concluded publicly there was no collusion between Trump and the Kremlin, they pivoted the same pile of falsehoods to claim Trump somehow obstructed an investigation that actually exonerated him.
The long-awaited report by Special Counsel John Durham tasked to look into the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign for Russian collusion was released Monday May 15, concluding that the FBI should have never launched an investigation into the Trump campaign.
Durham’s 300-page report found a damning conclusion:
Durham said the Justice Department and FBI acted without “appropriate objectivity or restraint in pursuing allegations of collusion or conspiracy between a U.S. political campaign and a foreign power.” He also said the FBI used a different standard when it came to looking at Clinton’s campaign.
"The speed and manner in which the FBI opened and investigated Crossfire Hurricane during the presidential election season based on raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence also reflected a noticeable departure from how it approached prior matters involving possible attempted foreign election interference plans aimed at the Clinton campaign.”
Durham slammed the integrity of the FBI.
“The promulgation of additional rules and regulations to be learned in yet more training sessions would likely prove to be a fruitless exercise if the FBI’s guiding principles of ‘Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity’ are not engrained in the hearts and minds of those sworn to meet the FBI’s mission of ‘Protect[ing] the American People and Uphold[ing] the Constitution of the United States.”

WE have leaders who are standing up for US, for common decency and common sense. This success is because Republicans have controlled Florida’s governor’s office and Legislature since 1999. It's the work of 100's of thousands of citizen volunteers who are active, who insist that our elected leaders work for US and for our families.
The Florida House passed HB1297 (Effective Date: 10/1/2023) a bill that allows for the death penalty for rapists of children under the age of 12 without jury unanimity, by a 95-14 vote.
When Governor DeSantis signs this Florida bill into law, it may not have Christina Meridith's name at the top, but it does have her story and it will bring her and thousands of others the justice they deserve. A former homeless foster youth and a victim of child rape, she currently serves in the US Army and continues to dedicate herself to protecting children from abuse and advocating for foster care reform.

The Florida House on Wednesday 4/19, approved a measure that would make it a felony to provide hormone therapy and puberty blockers to minors. (Orwellian named 'gender-affirming care' )
.TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Legislature passed a bill to ban sex reassignment surgeries and medications for minors.
The House voted 83-28 and the Senate voted 26-13 on Thursday May 4, sending the bill to Gov. Ron DeSantis for his signature.
“This is not science. This is a cult that is focused on the abuse of children,” Bill sponsor Rep. Randy Fine said on the House floor.
The House voted 82-31 to pass the bill (SB 254), which would largely put into law rules approved by the state Board of Medicine and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine. (More)
Protesters shouted against bill.
Rep. Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay, sponsor of the House’s version of the measure said:
“We have failed to give them (children) the ultimate gender-affirming care, to affirm they are creatures of God made in his image. That they were made the way they are and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.”

“This is not hateful. This is not ignoring a segment of society. This is in fact protecting the most vulnerable of our society.”

Trump Vindicated: Media Elite Turn on “Russiagate” Coverage
The entire mad media Russia mess of the Trump presidency—the furious coverage of the salacious Steele Dossier, the Mueller special counsel probe, the presidential tweets and bombast, the FBI inquiries, Congressional inquiries, inspector general inquiries, the sinister suggestions of collusion and corruption, treason and betrayal, prostitutes and pay offs has faded from the news cycle. The circus has left town.
Years too late to have any real-time impact, it now appears that a reckoning has begun to arrive. Close observers of the media landscape have noticed a shift when Washington Post Bob Woodward began reminding readers that he called the Steele Dossier a “garbage document” on Fox News as far back as 2017.
Former New York Times investigative journalist Jeff Gerth wrote a monumental takedown of media coverage of Trump, “The Press Versus the President.” a 24,000 word, four part report that will remain a landmark study of media malfeasance for decades to come.
Gerth sets important context for understanding this war. He notes that it was Hillary Clinton, not Trump, who began the campaign “facing scrutiny over Russia ties.” He details the financing and evolution of the Steele Dossier as a product of Clinton allies and hired guns, and the media’s long love affair (with a few notable dissents) with the document. He reminds us that the Steele Dossier exploded on to the media scene after Trump won the election but before he was inaugurated—setting in motion a chain of events that embittered the new president toward the press and touching off dreams of a new Watergate among legions of ambitious reporters.
After the emergence of the Steele Dossier and a tsunami of Russia-related stories, the new president abandoned hope of getting along the media. “I realized early on I had two jobs,” Trump told Gerth in an interview after he left the presidency. “The first was to run the country, and the second was survival. I had to survive: the stories were unbelievably fake.”
Fake—but deadly serious. A special counsel probe, led by Robert Mueller, was quickly trigged and Congress began to investigate. The Mueller probe loomed over Trump for two years—a mortal threat to his presidency. The probe, Gerth notes, “issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, interviewed 500 witnesses, and generated enormous interest. There were 533,000 news articles published involving Russia and Trump or Mueller. The articles led to 245 million interactions on social media.
In the end, Trump was cleared of wrongdoing. In a lengthy report, Mueller wrote: “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government. ”No collusion. No conspiracy. Trump tweeted that the Mueller Report was a “complete and total exoneration.” But the media did not quit—or for the most part even pause for reflection.
“I’ll often sit down with hostile press,” Trump told Gerth, “just to see if it’s possible to get them to write the truth. It almost never works.”

Governor DeSantis Introduces Groundbreaking Legislation to Protect the Digital Rights and Privacy of All Floridians
On Wednesday, February 15, DeSantis announced his proposal to protect Floridians’ digital rights and privacy from Big Tech companies by creating a Digital Bill of Rights that focuses on protecting Floridians’ privacy, protecting minors from online harms, and eliminating unfair censorship.
The proposal also bans the use of TikTok and other social media platforms with ties to China from all state government devices, and through internet services at colleges, universities, and public schools, and prohibits state and local government employees from coordinating with Big Tech companies to censor protected speech.
This proposal is for the 2023 Florida Legislative Session that begins in March.
“Our Digital Bill of Rights will ensure Floridians are protected from the overreach and surveillance we have seen from Big Tech companies. Today’s proposal builds on our efforts to stop Big Tech censorship and combat the malign influence of China through the removal of nefarious platforms like TikTok from any state supported activity.”
- Governor Ron DeSantis, February 15, 2023
“Big Tech has gone unchecked for too long and has been reckless with our data, causing major concerns about privacy and potentially jeopardizing sensitive state information. I’m proud to stand with Governor DeSantis today to give Silicon Valley a reboot and announce an audacious plan to protect Floridians and keep our children safe online.”
- AG Ashley Moody, February 15, 2023
These executive actions and legislative proposals build upon legislation signed by Governor DeSantis in 2021 that required social media companies to be transparent about their content moderation practices, allowed the Attorney General of Florida to bring action against technology companies that violate the law under Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, and prohibited the de-platforming of Floridian political candidates.

The subcommittee has heard from "dozens and dozens of whistleblowers" just in the FBI, with one sitting for a transcribed interview Tuesday and many more expected to do so, Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said.
The former FBI agents and whistleblowers affirmed GOP portrayals of the bureau as increasingly politicized and centralized in D.C., running roughshod over field offices and rank and file.
- Former Miami Special Agent Nicole Parker joined the FBI from a hedge fund after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and "held out as long as I could" before leaving in disgust last fall. WATCH
There are now "two FBIs," Parker said, citing a shift in recruiting practices and lowering of eligibility requirements that has transformed a "calling" into "merely a very dangerous and high-risk" job. Honorable agents now just "work hard and stay off the radar" to claim their pension.
The Twitter Files show the agency's mission is now "a perversion of the First Amendment."
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik slammed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and other federal agencies for their unconstitutional ‘censorship by surrogate’ and election meddling.
. Stefanik questioned Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law Center
"Isn't it true that leading up to the 2020 election, Twitter had weekly meetings with not just the FBI, with DOJ, with DHS, with DNI to conduct this unconstitutional censorship by surrogate. We know that because of the Twitter Files, correct?” -- Mr. Turley: “Correct.” -- Watch her line of questioning here.
"The government has a long history of lying to us" and is now working through "their arms in media and Big Tech" to control what Americans can see and say, warned former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. "They think we're too stupid to think for ourselves." The ex-Democrat said America increasingly resembles a "banana republic" that threatens challenges to the establishment.
Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson testified on how federal agencies tried to thwart their investigations into the Biden family's financial dealings among others and falsely portray them as "Russian stooges," including through misleading leaks. The 89-year-old Iowa Republican railed against the FBI, media and Democrats as a "triad of disinformation and outright falsehoods."
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is currently taking transcribed testimony from FBI whistleblowers about the political targeting within the Dept. of Justice. (LINK).
The House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, also chaired by Jim Jordan, has to narrow the focus on which of the myriad of examples will best highlight the issue.
On Jan. 22, MAGA Warrior Jordan told a packed Daytona Beach Ocean Center arena that he was going to hold the DOJ & FBI to account.

The U.S. government weaponization of the FBI is clear from the influence operations in elections, to the hiding of the Hunter Biden laptop, to the targeting of parents at school board meetings, to the entirety of what is evident in the Twitter files, domestic social media operations and even the FBI activity in the J6 events.
The FBI issues are widespread and clearly visible. However, the scale of this corruption remains mostly hidden because mainstream media won't report on it. That's about to change.
The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government has scheduled their first committee hearing for Thursday, February 9th at noon [LINK].
