Elementary and High School Shootings in USA

Nadene Goldfoot                                             
As a retired teacher, I am in shock over school shootings at elementary schools.  We certainly are developing a sick society.

Just how many schools have gone through this and since when is in question.    The first school to suffer from attack with 10 deaths  happened in 1764 on July 26th, when schools are not necessarily open for studies.  Maybe they were back then, but it was the Delaware Indians who did it in Pennsylvania.  The school probably looked like any log cabin to them.  In 1893 on March 26th the high school in  Plain Dealing, Bossier Parrish, Louisiana was attacked resulting in 4 deaths.  That same year of 1893 also suffered a 2nd shooting in Charleston, South Carolina on December 13th with 6 deaths.  May 6, 1940 in Pasadena, California another shooting resulted in 5 deaths at a junior high with the principal being the shooter!

1998 was when another school shooting occurred.  It was on March 24th when two students of Westside Middle School in Arkansas  (junior high) went on a rampage and 5 were killed by them.

Then another shooting happened  on May 21, 1998 at  Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon which is just outside of Eugene with 4 dead.  An expelled  student killed his parents first and then attacked the school.  It seems that more steps should be taken before expelling a student since the most recent 19 year old killer was also shooting after being expelled.

America has now heard what upset students do, and other maladjusted students are taking notice and filing this act away in their minds as a last resort for them,  too.

The very next year of 1999 on April 20th, we all heard and saw on TV the Columbine Massacre with 15 deaths.  The number shocked the public.  It happened in Colorado.  Evidently our culture is not meeting the needs of its young people as we do have some who are disturbed and attending school.  That's why we have counselors in most schools today.  They serve their districts in academic ways, of course, like finding colleges for high school graduates and such.  They are ones who usually speak with all the teachers about their students, and that can be passed onto the principal if necessary.  Between the principal and the Counselor, someone should be able to be on the line with their local Police Dept. to put out a red marker on these disturbed students who might take negative action. Counselors should also be in close touch with parents.

Things were settled down until March 21, 2005 on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Minnesota when 10 deaths occurred.  A 16 year old killed his policeman grandfather and girlfriend, took his weapon and went to the high school by driving his grandfather's car, and wearing his police vest.  Again, this student was not a regular student but had  either been expelled or just hadn't attended for some months.

An Amish one-room schoolhouse was even attacked on October 2, 2006 which is the West Nickel Mines School shooting causing 6 dead.  This is in a village in Pennsylvania.  10 girls, ages 6 to 13 were there, and he shot 8 of them.  This was an adult who shot the girls, a father himself.

The gunman, identified as Charles Roberts IV, was a milk tanker truck driver who served several Amish farms in the Nickel Mines area (including some of the victims' families). He had three children and a wife.  What was the pressures he had to cause such a snap.  He was working and living in a very forgiving environment.  

2012  was the next year on December 14 with the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting leaving 28 dead.  This was in Connecticut and the shooter was 20 years old who first shot his mother in her home. .  20 of the  children were between 6 and 7 years old.  The others were adult staff people at the school.  He then killed himself.  He was certainly a sick, sick, sick man.

October 24, 2014 was the next date when  Marysville Pitchuck High School  in Washington had a shooting that left 5 dead.  A 15 year old Freshman shot 4 other students and then himself.   15 is rather old for a freshman.  I remember that I was 13.  There's a problem right there.  This student was having academic problems, for one.  He was clever, though.  He arranged to get his targets at one cafeteria table, then walked up to them.  " He then pulled out a .40-caliber Beretta Px4 Storm handgun and fired at least eight shots."

November 14, 2017 was the date of the Rancho Tehama Reserve, California  shootings which left 6 dead.  This was during a spree that included an elementary school.  The killer was 44 years old and just let out of jail and on bail.  "At the time of the spree, Neal had been freed on bail pending trial for two alleged felonies, and five alleged misdemeanors."  There's always this anger and wanting to get even with society.  

Now we come to the latest killing; of February 14th, 2018, Valentine's Day, a day of love and boyfriends and girlfriends.  It was so fun to be in class on those days when you received valentines out of the class Valentine box.  Who loved you?  The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida    shootings left 17 dead and 14 wounded by a 19 year old who was expelled from school for his behavior.  He was captured alive and is in jail.  Again, he was too old to have been a senior.  18 is the usual age.  He was not the brightest in class, either, but certainly planned this shooting quite well.  To me, he lacked empathy for animals that he had killed and for fellow students.  I wonder what happened to his biological parents that caused him and his sibling to be put up for adoption?  What happened to his adoptive mother since she recently died and of which he was upset about?  He had expressed the desire to be the shooter killing the most in a school shooting.  He probably did reach this goal.  Now, he's an adult at 19 and has killed on purpose 17 beloved children.  How is the state going to deal with this?  

There have been other shootings at colleges.  I'm just dealing with grade schools to high schools in this.  To want to kill young children should be in a class itself.   They are the innocent until adulthood of 18.  These are the ones that get the most attention on the news, as it is unheard of to want to kill children.  I can't help thinking that if guns were out of reach for these unstable killers, they'll use knives.  That's what has happened in Israel, especially in Jerusalem.  Children will be vulnerable on the playgrounds, for sure.  This even happened to one of our Senators who was practicing for a baseball game.  At least with a knife, a killer can't cause the havoc that guns have.  Best yet, stop people from becoming killers in the first place, and a pill or a drink  or a cigarette is not the answer, either.

What Action Are OFA Organized For?

Nadene Goldfoot                                   

There is a new group organized in Washington DC by Obama.  It's called "Organized For Action."  What they are putting out for the public is this: 
Organizing for Action is a nonprofit 5014 organization and community organizing project that advocates for the agenda of former U.S. President Barack Obama. .  This is from Wikipedia.  
FoundedJanuary 18, 2013
Executive DirectorKatie Hogan
Chicago is the old stomping grounds of Obama.  
Katie Hogan
"Whether it is promoting work-family balance, equal pay for equal work, or the Affordable Care Act guaranteeing women security in their health coverage, it is clear the president has put women's issues at the forefront of his agenda," spokeswoman Katie Hogan said.
"We're getting organized; we're getting very organized," said Katie Hogan, the campaign's deputy press secretary who was standing near empty desks soon to be occupied by new hires.

James Melvin Messina is an American musician, songwriter, singer, guitarist, recording engineer and record producer.

Michelle Obama
Mrs. Obama
                             These are the people involved in directing OFA?  Really?
Katie Hogan is an athlete.      
She is a weightlifter. 
                                Is this the same Katie Hogan as above? 

A paper with Charles Krauthammer's name on it that Snopes says is not true,  has alerted us to the fact that  former President Barack Hussein Obama has done something no other President has ever done in this over 200 year old democracy of ours.  It is he, not his wife, behind setting up a special group interferring with our American government.  It is called "Organizing for Action," for short-OFA.  It is the ex-president Obama who is the organizer.   Krauthammer may not have written this paper, but it's simply stating true facts anyway.  It's not fake news and most of us suspected something like this to be going on.  

Whatever Trump is trying to do, this group of over 30,000 most likely 100% Democrats are working to disrupt everything the Republican majority government is trying to do.  

OFA is going against: our Democracy and ways of passing things in the government.
It goes against 
Our Constitution
Our Laws
Our Processes of Governing

It's heading us in the direction of the 3rd world countries and their ways of working
It's not respecting our present government or allowing it to follow our laws.

Remember when then President Obama said he was going to stay involved through community organizing?  That's what he was in his other life.  A community organizer.  He told us he INTENDED to speak out on issues.  He's been doing it.  

He has moved many of his administration's top dogs (Democrats) over to ORGANIZING FOR ACTION. 
He showed everyone he was on the way to continuing to spend his life doing things his way and not the government way on his last day in office when he voted to abstain on the vote about Israel instead of standing with her, something the USA has not done before.  

Really, what has OFA been doing?  "It's behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution. "    

We already know that Hillary Clinton and Obama had been conspiring against Trump in the election.  This is the latest news at this time.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "Progressive Change."   These are all issues of contention between Republicans and Democrats.  

OFA says its issues are:

1. Gun Control
2. Socialist Healthcare
3. Abortion
4. Sexual Equality
5. Climate Change
6. Immigration Reform
Here was Obama's message:  "Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished.  Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines.  Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."  
This is becoming a shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as America.  

Krauthammer quoted Paul Sperry who writes for the New York Post:  "The ex-President is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA.  It is growing its war chest to more than $40 million and has some 250 offices nationwide. 
The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/office in Washington DC."  It looks to me like their non-profit set-up with Katie Hogan and Jim Messina are just a hoax as heads.  Of course, they are part of this revolution, no doubt.  

For 241 years, our government has been held up as an example of equality and democracy.  People have come here for the opportunities found in no other places. 

Is it going to slip away from us now?  This is like ISIS trying to take over the Middle East to create their own  caliphate.  
Krauthammer shows how they will work:  
1. Trump issues an immigration executive order.
    a. OFA: Signal for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups.
    b. ACLU lawyers file lawsuits where judges obstruct the laws.
    c. Volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings.
   d. Leftist media acts to support
   e. Twitter and social media join in
   f.  Violence erupts

I think we've already seen the previews! 
And now, we are in the 3rd day of a government meltdown; an agreement has not  been decided on yet and our government is closed.  The differences in political parties have been growing larger and larger.  
The Amnesty issue being fought over all stem from our organizer, Barack Hussein Obama.  " President Obama used executive action to create the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program four years ago, this was the group he was seeking to protect. They were, for the most part, children whose parents came to this country illegally, and either brought them along or sent for them later."
Conservatives argued that Obama had overstepped the bounds of executive power and had infringed on states’ rights. They objected to the idea of rewarding families who were, no matter how talented or well-meaning, in blatant violation of immigration law.
April 2015:  Authorities report having captured 15,647 children traveling without parents who tried to jump the border in the first six months of the fiscal year. Through this point in 2014, they had apprehended 28,579.  Obama had been the president since 2009.   This had to have happened through someone's organization.

Trump's Vindication: The FISA Memo

Nadene Goldfoot
Born June 14, 1946, Donald Trump took office on January 20, 2017.
He defeated 16 other Republican candidates for the Presidency.
Trump was educated at the Wharton School of the U of Pennsylvnia.

It's been a fast year that Trump has been in office as President of the United States and Democrats are still fuming about it and calling him names!  Yet, he continues to do his work and under his direction, our country is doing much better than the previous 8 years already.  All the opinions of our country's demise under his presidency are turning out to be just the opposite.

Trump had said he thought he was being spied on in his own hotel living quarters.  Democrats said he was paranoid.  Now it's being released through the FISA Memo that he was right.  This memo holds the facts in 4 pages of all the tricks that were being used by Obama and Hillary who swayed the FBI their way.  Too many people were involved in the plot against Trump to keep him from having a chance at becoming president.

"On the heels of both houses of Congress reauthorizing Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), it has been reported that an “explosive,” “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming” four-page memo was made available to members of the House of Representatives after they voted to approve that reauthorization. The memo details systemic and routine abuses of FISA ."
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell with Senator John
Banasso, Republican from Wyoming
"A four-page memo circulating in Congress reportedly details abuse and misuse of government authority under the Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA). On Thursday, the House Intelligence Committee voted in favor of a motion to circulate the memo to every member of the House. The vote went along party lines, with all Democrats voting no."

"Sources who viewed the FISA memo told journalist Sara A. Carter that “they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.” The sources predicted that it most likely will lead to senior-level government officials at the FBI and DOJ being removed from their positions." 

"Fox News has a moderator, Jesse Watters.  "On "The Five" on Friday, Jesse Watters reacted to the uproar over a memo on alleged U.S. government surveillance abuses, saying the memo "better be good."
Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says the confirmation of Jeff Sessions means America will once again have a Justice Department that follows the law, and he says the way Democrats treated Sessions could mean fewer of them in the Senate after the 2018 elections.
"A FISA memo is said to contain bombshell evidence of top Obama DOJ and FBI officials abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in order to illegally spy on the Trump campaign! Of course it's being completely ignored by Fake News CNN. And Republicans scramble to pass a funding bill."

Trump's decisions are turning out well.  Our people are feeling the results in their pocket book.  Financially everyone is benefiting or will soon as the wheels are in motion for this to happen.  

I wasn't happy at all with Obama for 8 years, but just bided my time hoping for a better chance when the next 4 years were up and we had the opportunity to vote again.  Never in the world could we forsee what Democrats, who have gone through a metamorphasis of their own, to have such a religious zeal to use every unorthodox and evil method in the world in plotting against a candidate.  It was truly un-American!
I have a one-track mind in my selection of a president.  I wanted Israel to have a fair shake and she wasn't getting it with Obama.  Trump is that man.  Finally, a man who in my estimation, can be on the side of the angels with President Truman who was the first to give Israel the chance to be born.
Trump is a typical Queens and Manhattan, New York businessman, unlike any other businessmen in the United States. I shouldn't say typical.  He's one of the exceptional ones at the top of his line because of the schooling he has received and because his father was already one of the best.   He's tough as nails, more competitive than any others.
 He brings to the table a mind honed in ways to win, a skill desperately needed in New York's business world.   Hillary and her crew had no idea who their competition was.  He didn't either, for that matter.  He didn't figure on people who were so conniving, and were going to break so many of our government's laws to win.  He was playing within the laws of the land.  Trump just worked on the task at hand like an excellent chess player who didn't have to move pieces while his opponent had his back turned.
Diamond and Silk on Watters World
So many lies are being said about him.  One that comes to the forefront this morning is hearing a Democrat say he is a racist.  Diamond and Silk, two Black ladies on TV, are powerful speakers praising Trump.  They don't think so.  I've heard Hispanics praise Trump, so I don't think this is holding water.  It's the old Nazi trick of starting a rumor about someone and everyone picks up on it.  Loshen hora, we call it, gossip is a more powerful network than the telephone.   What Trump did on TV when running for president was to think for 30 seconds when asked about some Nazi Americans. I saw this interview.    I figured he was thinking of votes he needed; not the racist element.  Being a powerful contender that needed votes against the Hillary machine, he had to think.  The machine, already in progress against him, used that 30 seconds to scream that he was a racist.

In his environment, I don't doubt that there were many who were anti-Semites.  We Jews have been fighting that attitude all through out history and in the United States as well.  You'd be surprised at what I've heard even in my era.  It surrounds us.  It's just under the surface.  I'm not thinking that Trump or any other person is a Goody Two Shoes.  Whatever he heard in his home has been altered by his daughter's action of marrying and converting to Judaism.  He loves his daughter and grandchildren and is not anti-Semitic.  Where there's life, there's hope.  People can learn.  He listens and he learns.  That's more than the Democrats are showing me these days.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright with Obama
Who's the racist?  They should ask, who's the anti-Semite.  I have reason to believe that Obama is.  What he listened to in his church was strictly anti-Semitic blarney and that went on for 22 years until he became President and disconnected himself from his minister.  His friends in Chicago that he drank "coffee" with were not the upright American citizens who always followed the rules of our government. How many of those were speaking positively about our country?  Even his wife held hurt feelings against our country and she said so.   Then his last act against Israel in not standing with Israel  in the UN was indeed the climax that proved I had reason to be most wary of Obama.  I was furious.  I've given him the Goldfoot Broch, or klug, as I remember it! klog tzu meineh sonim! - A curse on my enemies!
As for being a racist, Trump isn't.  He's against breaking the laws of the land.  Whoever abides by our laws is his friend.  It doesn't matter what flavor we are.  He likes us all.  He's for law abiding citizens and he's a president at a time that our people are infected with the viruses of alcohol, which he is fighting,  and drugs; both things that cause law-breakers.  He's never drunk any alcohol, taken drugs and probably  has never smoked.  That is a rarity in today's world.  He has good reason not to imbibe.  He lost a brother to alcohol.
Republican Senators
Many Republican Senators have read the 4 pages of the FISA memo.   Only one Democrat has gone in the room to read it so far.  It's open to them.  Now the public wants to read what has been going on.  So many are involved, that it's likely to wipe out a lot of Washington DC's people, the way it sounds.  A lot of people are involved.  Are we surprised?  This must be the swamp that Trump wants to drain.

It's all up to Jeff Sessions now to act on this information.  Heads are said to roll if and when it comes out.  We really won't decapitate people like ISIS would.  It's just our expression that they will be punished with more than a handslap.

How Loshen Hora and Russia Has Aided and Abetted the Attempt of the Downfall of the USA

Nadene Goldfoot
I've been looking for hard evidence that President Trump ever was a Neo Nazi or even went along with Neo Nazi thinking.  The other thing he's accused of by the Left is that he's a white supremacist.  I guess you don't have to belong to a group to be that, though there certainly are such groups, and a few were in Idaho and I came close to tangling with them because I'm Jewish. They were infiltrating into my town of Ontario that is on the border of Idaho, and we had a nice restaurant big enough for one of their meetings.

 Because  Trump  wavered for about 30 seconds before answering a question while on TV about some white supremacist, he was charged with being one of them.  This happened while he was a candidate for the presidency.  I was watching this segment.   This could have meant anything-each one of us concluding something different.  I took it as he didn't remember the name or even connected him right away as a white supremacist; or that he thought of the number of votes he'd lose by answering anything.  He was anything except being a neo Nazi or a white supremacist.  Do you notice that since then whatever Trump says is found fault with by the Left?  It's becoming a sickness.  I've been writing about this stuff and I didn't recognize the name, either.
Klu Klux Klan-original  white supremacists and anti-Semites
     It was in the 60s that Jews went to Blacks and helped fight such people.  Some even lost their lives doing so.  I see so many signs today saying not to hate.  None ever came to helping us except our own Anti- Defamation League.  Since then you have  other religious leaders hating the Jews.  Go figure.  Obama's minister  of 22 years, Jeremiah Wright,  sure didn't like us one bit. To become president, Obama had to part ways with him.

 "Wright was born and raised in the racially mixed area of Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  His parents were Jeremiah Wright senior (1909–2001), a Baptist minister who pastored Grace Baptist Church in Germantown, Philadelphia, from 1938 to 1980,  and Mary Elizabeth Henderson Wright, a school teacher who was the first black person to teach an academic subject at Roosevelt Junior High. She went on to be the first black person to teach at Germantown High and Girls High, where she became the school's first black vice principal." Being a first  to break the racial barrier and her son became a real hater of Jews, is a surprise.  She would not be proud of this at all!  

Even though Trump has said, "“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups,” the Left insist that he's one of them.  Why?  "Because," as they say, "it's all over the internet."  What I see are inuendos and loshen hora, but no hard facts.  If, G-d forbid, Trump was ever like that as a young man, he has made a 180 degree change of heart.  

The Hebrew term for speaking badly of others is called lashon hara, literally "evil language." Interestingly, the Torah calls "evil language" anything negative, even if it's true. (Slander -- malicious, false information is called motzi shem ra, literally "giving another a bad name.")  Trump tends to call this Fake News.  Yes Trump is guilty of this himself, giving a bad name to Hillary and others.  I guess he's been paid back in full, now.  
We are not to believe the report of one person against someone, but should be two or three witnesses against someone's behavior.  (By the testimony of 2 witnesses or 3 witnesses shall the condemned person be put to death;  he shall not be put to death by the testimony of a single witness.)  2 or 3 eye-witnesses.  In person, not on something that can be the result of photo-shopping.  That's why we have courts of law.  Trump has been accused and found guilty by loshen hora.  

Good grief!  His daughter has converted to her husband's religion, Judaism.  He is tight with his daughter.  No doubt he's learned a lot from her and her daughter's family.  He's not anti-Semitic, either.  Usually, all 3 of these despicable attitudes and beliefs go hand in hand with a person.  If they hate one, they hate all.
All this makes me realize that many people have been peer followers or just plain going along with the masses in believing that Trump was the worst thing that has come along since soggy mashed potatoes.  They are guilty of loshen hora.   Loshen hora has been involved along with Russia in destroying our country.  Loshen hora is the act of believing in gossip and helping to spread it.  

I've just heard the report that Russia was definitely involved in our election and democratic system and has been for years, at least since 2014, way before Trump.  Remember the TV program I've referred to about Russians here as American citizens doing their undercover work to destroy us?  It's true!  Who knew it was more than TV entertainment?  Russia set people up to hate each other.  They did it with loshen hora using TV and computer use with facebook and other computer uses.  
How Germany Turned Against It's Jews
Jews thought they were Germans!  They even fought in WWI for Germany.
Loshen Hora spread hatred-no one checked out facts.
In case you've forgotten, 6 million of our family members were slaughtered
Just as anti-Semitism spread in Europe through personal belief picked up by mass brainwashing-or loshen hora, so did it here.  Every TV station except Fox has been against Trump, and it is continuing over a year since he was elected!  My, Russia has had such fun doing this.  Well, they've had lots of practice.  Perhaps this is why Trump is slow to  attack  someone when pressured for an answer, since he's been attacked so much himself and he feels he is innocent.  

Russia has set up the American public and they have reacted no differently than the Russians during the days of pogroms.  They've been one step ahead of everyone.  
That's the news today from Fox News.

Collusion, Justice Dept, FBI, Democratic Party, Hillary Campaign Against Trump

Nadene Goldfoot                                           
                   Trying to pass his wand over to Hillary in the election
              Ex President Obama and Hillary Clinton, wife of ex-President Bill Clinton. 

The 4 page FISA memo we've all been waiting to read came out yesterday.  It explains a lot.

Evidently the government in power with Obama was in a panic in 2016 at the thought of Hillary possibly losing the election to Trump, and they conspired to prevent this by using methods that were against our constitution.

Because Trump was an international businessman with hotels all over the world, they conspired to show he was in cahoots with Russia, and therefore would be blacklisted as a candidate for the presidency.  To do this, they involved many levels of power in the government, all of which were Democrats.         Their reasoning, according to Wikipedia was this:

"Donald Trump has pursued business deals in Russia since 1987, and has sometimes traveled there to explore potential business opportunities. In 1996, Trump trademark applications were submitted for potential Russian real estate development deals. Trump's partners and children have repeatedly visited Moscow, connecting with developers and government officials to explore joint venture opportunities. Trump was never able to successfully conclude any real estate deals in Russia. However, individual Russians have invested heavily in Trump properties, and following Trump's bankruptcies in the 1990s he borrowed money from Russian sources. In 2008 his son Donald Trump Jr. said that Russia was an important source of money for the Trump businesses."                                             

1.  The Dept. of Justice and the FBI started by framing Carter Page, who was a volunteer advisor to the Trump presidential campaign and American citizen, no doubt a Republican voter. They did this by electronic surveillance on him.  To spy on an American citizen, they needed to go through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This was created to protect Americans from abuses by the government.  The FBI abused their surveillance.  

"30. Carter Page, former campaign adviser of Trump in 2016:  (American oil industry consultant and former foreign-policy advisor) .met with House investigators in early November and contradicted earlier testimony given by Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions. "while he didn’t have any evidence of Russian meddling in the presidential election, he did take a trip to Russia during the campaign and “briefly said hello” to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich." "
Evidently this was the reason the FBI decided to use him as a way to get rid of Trump.                                                      

They needed a warrent to do this, and got it in four 90 day periods, meaning almost a whole year of spying starting on October 21, 2016. It's called the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) application.
 First, it had to be certified by:         
                              I.  Director of the FBI:  James Comey who did it 3 times  or
                                  Deputy Director of the FBI:  Andrew McCabe did it once.
  Evidently this was easy to obtain but needed the approval of :
  a. Attorney GeneralLoretta Lynch (seen talking to Bill Clinton near his airplane) (Loretta Elizabeth Lynch is an American attorney who served as the 83rd Attorney General of the United States, appointed by President Barack Obama in 2015 to succeed Eric Holder.)
 b. Deputy Attorney General (DAGSally Q Yates (Sally Q. Yates was confirmed as Deputy Attorney General on May 13, 2015. President Obama formally nominated her for the position on January 8, 2015.)
or    Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division-Senate confirmed ;
  c. Dana Boente  (Dana James Boente is the former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. Originally, He was nominated by President Barack Obama on October 8, 2015, and confirmed by the United States Senate on December 15, 2015, as the 60th U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.  He also serves as acting assistant attorney general for the National Security Division of the United States Department of Justice.) (He was appointed by President Donald Trump as Acting Attorney General on January 30, 2017, after Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was dismissed by Trump earlier that evening. Previously, Trump had nominated Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. ) 

d. Rod Rosenstein : Rod Jay Rosenstein is the Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice. Prior to his current appointment, he served as a United States Attorney for the District of Maryland. ("President Donald Trump announced his intention to nominate Rosenstein to serve as Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice on January 31, 2017. Rosenstein was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 25, 2017. In May 2017, he authored a memo which President Trump said was the basis of his decision to dismiss FBI Director James Comey.  Later that month, Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election)."

Each signed one or more FISA applications for the Department of Justice.

The injustice done was that collusion reasons were not given of relevant facts that were the real reasons they wanted to spy on Carter Page. The FISA application that was renewed for four 90 day periods never showed the involvement of the the DNC or Hillary's campaign or the funding source, but the political need of the Democrats was known to the senior  Department of Justice and the FBI officials.  So they were in on it and must have given them the green light to go ahead.  

A Dossier was compiled by Christopher Steele who was hired and paid by The DNC (Democratic National Committee),  and the Hillary Clinton campaign.  ("Christopher David Steele is a founding director of Orbis Business Intelligence, a London-based private intelligence firm. He authored a dossier that claims Russia collected a file of compromising information on U.S. President Donald Trump)."

They paid Steele over $160,000 through the law firm, Perkins Cole and a research firm, Fusion GPS.  (Fusion GPS is a commercial research and strategic intelligence firm based in Washington, D.C. The company conducts open-source investigations and provides research and strategic advice for businesses, law firms and investors, as well as for political inquiries, such as opposition research.   The "GPS" initialism is derived from "global research, political analysis, strategic insight.)   Steele was to dig for dirt on Donald Trump and to find Trump's ties to Russia.  The FISA application left out the facts about Fusion GPS and Glenn Simpson of the law firm Perkins Cole and their connections with the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  The FBI had also authorized payment to Steele for this same information.  He was double-dipping!  

They mislead the readers of the FISA application by including Michael Isikoff's article in the Yahoo News article about Page's July 2016 trip to Moscow.  The facts of the article had been given by  Christopher Steele himself to Yahoo News and evidently Michael Isikoff quoted it without revealing his resource.  This was a real planting of false evidence! 

Steele came clean in British Court filings that Fusion GPS had him meet with Yahoo News in 2016.  Perkins Cole Law firm knew about this because they hosted one meeting in Washington DC with Steele and Fusion GPS and they talked about it.  

The FBI finally suspended and then terminated Christopher Steele because he disclosed to the media without authorization of his connection to the FBI.  It was found in a Mother Jones article by David Corn  October 30, 2016.  Funny, but it was in September, before the application was submitted to the FISC ((FISC, also called the FISA Court) in October.  It was accusing Steele of improperly concealing from them and lying to the FBI about those contacts.   We know that the FBI paid Steele for the same information that was given to Hillary and the Democratic Party!  I would say that after the article came out in Mother Jones-they had to save themselves as best they could.  

Nellie Ohr, an expert on Russia and Eurasia, Asst Prof at Vassar College who taught there in 1997 from August to October's term,  found work with Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Trump's connection to Russia.  Her husband, Bruce Ohr, provided the FBI with all of her research which was paid for by the Democratic Party and Hillary's campaign through Fusion GPS.   The connection between the Ohrs, Steele and Fusion GPS was not included in the FISC application.  All this was secret.  
Bruce Ohr did not want Trump to win.
Nellie was trying to find ways to keep him from winning. 
Christopher Steele kept in contact with the Dept. of Justice through Bruce Ohr, a senior official working with Yates and Rosenstein who were Deputy Attorneys Generals.  

After the election, the FBI interviewed Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele.  In September 2016, Steele told Ohr about his feelings against candidate Trump and said he was desperate that Donald Trup not get elected, and that he was passionate about him not being president.  This showed that Steele was biased!   Ohr had recorded this.  It went into the FBI files.  That means that the FBI either asked or ? Ohr in order to get this.  This information never showed up on the FISA application concerning Carter Page.  

In early January 2017, FBI Comey told the new President Trump about the Christopher Steele dossier, at that time salacious and unverified, according to him.  That's what they hit him with as soon as he became president.  

The dossier did not disclose the anti-Trump financial and ideological motivations. The application had relied on Steele's past record of credible reporting and other reasoning.  

No surveillance warrant would have been requested from FISC without the Steele dossier information that was given.  This comes from Deputy Director McCabe to the Committee in December 2017.  

Another Trump campaign advisor was George Papadopoulos, who was also mentioned in the FISA application, but no connection could be found between him and Carter Page.  

However, his name opened more FBI investigating in July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok.  Strzok was then reassigned b to the FBI Human Resources for improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page-no known relation to Carter Page.  They both were highly against Trump as a president.  This is evidently not hard to find in Democratic circles in the government.  The FBI gets a name and pow!  Another one.  

Both were for Clinton, who Pete said he also had investigated.  Their information shows the discussions about the investigation, orchestrating leaks to the media and included a meeting with McCabe to talk about an "insurance" policy against President Trump's campaign.  

They started in 2016 and now it's 2018 and we still hear about the Democrats trying to connect President Donald Trump to the baddies in Russia.  Evidently the FBI needs more time and money to find something and the Democrats are sure it will be found-one of these days.  In the meantime, I will remind you that Trump is not accepting his salary as a president.  His money is being donated to charity.  
Donald John Trump is the 45th and current President of the United States, in office since January 20, 2017. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.

Yet he has worked under this veil of collusion and not being a good USA citizen like Hillary Clinton has been.  We know what she has been.  This evidently has been since day one of being in office.  Being they haven't driven him out as easily as first thought and have even thrown out such verbage as being unfit to handle the position mentally.  One has to be the strongest to withstand such pressure from Democrats and many Republicans as well, and not snap.  
        "Oh what tangled webs we weave when first we                           practice to deceive".

update:  By Mike Huckabee
Take note, CNN, MSNBC, et al: this is how an actual journalist reacts to the Nunes memo. Michael Isikoff, who wrote a Yahoo News article about the Trump Russian dossier, says he was “stunned” to discover the FBI used his story to bolster the credibility of claims from the dossier to get a FISA Court warrant to spy on Trump’s associates. Isikoff said, “It’s self-referential” – his story was about the FBI investigation of the dossier, so naturally, the quotes from the dossier were information the FBI already had, not independent reporting corroborating its claims.

Incidentally, read down far enough and you’ll see that Isikoff suggested way back last summer that it “wasn’t unreasonable” to think the FBI used that Russian dossier to launch the Trump investigation. Of course, at that point, he didn’t know who paid for it. But the FBI did. They just didn’t share that inconvenient truth with the FISA Court judges.
