Editor’s Note: It is difficult to recall a time in recent US history when national politics has been so exciting to watch–as if something is in fact proceeding that is unprecedented. If one has only been half-paying attention they must notice very unusual developments that have been largely overlooked by major media, including the recent revelation that top DOJ officials plotted to oust the present presidential incumbent.

Don’t tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recording President Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke.
He apparently doesn’t believe it. And he held quite the vantage point — he was on the inside of the bureau’s leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.
Baker told Congress last week that his boss — then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe — was dead serious about the idea of surreptitiously recording the 45th president and using the evidence to make the case that Trump should be removed from office, according to my sources.
Baker told lawmakers he wasn’t in the meeting McCabe had with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which the subject came up. But he did have firsthand conversations with McCabe and the FBI lawyer assigned to McCabe, Lisa Page, about the issue.
“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation. “It was no laughing matter for the FBI.”
Word of Baker’s testimony surfaced just days before Rosenstein was set to be interviewed in private on Thursday by House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.
Since The New York Times first reported the allegations, Rosenstein, the No. 2 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, has tried to downplay his role in them. His office has suggested that he thought the discussions were a joke, that Rosenstein never gave an order to carry out such a plot, and that he does not believe Trump should be removed from office.

But ya gotta wonder why Rosenstein accompanied Trump on Airforce One just yesterday – I mean, WTH is really going on?
After Trump did that ceremony with Mad-Dog in from the huge replica of the Medal of Honor, all bets are off in terms of what Sir Combover has in mind for this country’s war department. The medal of Honor is an inverted Pentagram with the Roman Goddess of War Minerva. The symbology goes right over the average American’s head. The ceremony told me there’s plenty more war and destruction coming. A symbol of honor is an inverted pentagram? Spending more on the military than ever— check. Hiring someone named Mad-dog to run the War Department — check. New Supreme Court Justice confirmed that help get the un-Patriotic Act enacted— check. Also helped cover up Vince Foster’s murder — check. Having insane clowns like John Bolton giving advice to Trump — check. Sucking up to Israel and holding globes with the Saudis— check. More weapons sent to the Saudis to finish off Yemen— check. Israel will continue to receive billions from us when we have a 21 trillion dollar debt. There was an episode in the Simpsons where Lisa becomes President and bemoans the crippling debt President Trump left for her. The Simpsons have a track record of telelgraphing the future in a frighten-ly accurate manner so many times already…. then Trump submits a trillion dollar budget in real life! How about Trump’s Presidency announcement in cartoon being an exact replica of the Escalator scene in real life many years later. The Simpson’s track record of predicting the future has exploded into main stream stories. The Simpsons getting put in a FEMA CAMP is a dire warning to America from 2004 you must see this one, Bill Clinton is in the cell next door! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bMBZItTooY&t=283s The FEMA camps with barbed wire facing in are real so are the special train cars. And the million plastic coffins, millions of rounds of hollow point bullets for Homeland Security. They have worked on the infrastructure to round up large numbers of prisoners for a very long time. In the year after 911, a panel of the leading Government Conspiracy Experts met at a conference. The first thing out of the former Green Beret’s mouth was they will use 911 to justify a new domestic spying agency. I wonder if Trump really understands what happened in California last year with 170 “wildfires” came out of no where and turned homes to dust and cars were dismembered and flipped upside down with melted down engine blocks and wheels. meanwhile the trees surrounding the devastation are untouched in all directions! 50,000 people were rendered homeless in one night. They have been deserted and most will be prevented from rebuilding. They are homeless encampments all over that get harassed and raided by police instead of helped, housed or fed. The homeless camps being destroyed is right out of the movie “They Live” Here is the homelsss camp raid everyone thought was fiction, until the real life stories from California https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzPzEaUEtDI
I always like what John Solomon has to report.
He comes on Fox News frequently.
But I have lost complete trust in Fox News. They are just doing their old right wing controlled opposition schtick.
Hannity and Tucker Carlson and the whole Fox gang are disgusting highly paid theatrical liars. They have sold out our republic just like the traitors and criminals they claim to be exposing.
Trump has waited too long to do the right thing at the right time.
My latest episode of extreme disgust with this charade we are seeing that masquerades of quality journalism is how Tucker Carlson is telling the whole truth about Google. Tucker Carlson in 2008 was interviewed and said that anyone who did not believe the official story of 9-11 in all its aspects was a moron. That video which was on several sites on the web has now been completely erased. Tucker Carlson is being sold to us as an honest patriot.
I hope Mr. Solomon some day starts telling the truth about 9-11.
Just to give the complete reference on Tucker Carlson…
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson: If You Don’t Believe the Official Story About 9/11, You’re A Moron

Title of embedded video in this article which is now only available for probably a very short time before Google erases it again, after I spent this morning trying to get this erased important video.
I wish someone would copy and save a copy of this video but I do not know how to do it.
Again, this video will be erased by Google probably before the end of this day.
