My God, our government is evil… Well, folks, I know it sounds crazy, but it appears that John Durham is still alive and breathing.
After spending months in complete and total silence, Durham just made a big move that will likely get people talking. Now, I don’t want to over-hype this, but hey, at least it looks like something is happening, right? Let’s not get our hopes up too high, but at least be aware of what’s going down…
Durham is now taking direct aim at the infamous Steele dossier, the very document that opened up this whole Russian collusion can of worms, and is sending out subpoenas to the ginormous liberal think tank that was an integral part of it all.
And what we’re learning about this “think tank” is disturbing on the surface – going deeper will likely get even muckier.
Federal prosecutor John Durham recently subpoenaed a prominent foreign policy think tank as part of his investigation into the Steele dossier, the New York Times reported Monday.
According to The New York Times, Durham subpoenaed the Brookings Institution for records related to Igor Danchenko, a former analyst at the think tank who was the primary source for dossier author Christopher Steele.
The development sheds some light on a question recently asked by Donald Trump.
“Where’s Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?” Trump asked in a statement released on March 26.
Here’s where it gets interesting…Brookings Institution is a so-called “American research company” that’s been around for more than 100 years in Washington D.C.
These guys have some big roots in the D.C. swamp and they’re getting paid with taxpayer funds – basically, this group is a giant “slush fund” for Dems to use to go after their political opponents, and we are funding it.
So, in other words, we the people paid for the lies that helped hinder 4 years of Trump’s presidency and divide this country – my God, our government is evil.
According to Brookings, its mission is to “conduct in-depth research that leads to new ideas for solving problems facing society at the local, national and global level.” Brookings says it values the independence of its scholars and prides itself on “open-minded” inquiry.
Yet, public spending records captured by our organization at OpenTheBooks.com tell a somewhat different story. Rather than focusing on “open-minded” inquiry, Brookings seems swayed by “open-wallet” inquiry. In many cases, Brookings doesn’t resemble a think tank, but a jukebox – add a little coin and Brookings will play your tune, if the price is right.
And these aren’t just dollars provided by private donors — these are your tax dollars funding partisan advocacy projects and papers.
Since 2008, Brookings amassed nearly $20 million in contracts and grants from 50 agencies – including the Obama Administration’s Office of the President. Despite assets of $496 million (IRS990, FY2014), our OpenTheBooks.com audit shows it was not enough. Brookings instituted an aggressive strategy to pursue federal business over the past nine-years.
Of course, this place has ties to Obama – this guy has his commie tentacles into everything – Obama is the American “George Soros” and is doing even more damage to this country than Soros is.
So, there’s definitely a big sense of satisfaction to see a D.C. giant like this being put under a microscope by Durham – let’s hope something comes of it.
It just seems like these evil institutions have such deep and twisted roots all throughout our government. So, we’ll just have to see if anything actually comes of it. We need to get really serious about defunding these groups that are destroying this country from the inside and who are being used as weapons against the American people – and if we can’t get rid of them, we need to make sure we have the same “think tanks” who are doing a bigger and better job than the Dems are.
I know it sounds awful, but if we don’t get serious and fight dirty against these commies, we’re going to lose this country for good.
