Air Dates: Nov. 2nd & 3rd, 2019 | John Solomon and John Kiriakou

This week: To many political observers, the Democrats have done the proverbial “jump the shark” by relentless pushing a fake impeachment before even all the facts are known. And once again, they’re relying on their triad of allies:  disinformation, the Democrat “mainstream media”, and the ill-informed everyday voters (thanks to disinformation and the Democrat mainstream media).

But why? Why rush into a fake impeachment when they know it will fail in the senate? And why did their much vaunted “whistle blower” suddenly panic over a benign phone call between two presidents? One word: Ukraine.

Ukraine: Ground Zero of Corruption and Collusion

To understand why the Democrats pulled the trigger, you have to understand the panic behind what happened on the Ukraine phone call.  We talk with John Solomon, formerly of The Hill and now a Fox News contributor, about the origins of the Ukraine corruption.

It starts with Obama and Biden in the wake of the 2014 Ukraine uprisings. We talk with John Solomon about the Obama administration’s odd maneuvers, essentially creating the perfect storm — not to fight corruption but for corruption. Including setting up an anti-corruption bureau that became the cloak for corruption.

Another Deep State Ploy?

One of the more interesting stories John Solomon has exposed was a secretive meeting at the Obama-Biden White House. Biden had invited the top Ukrainian prosecutors to the White House to discuss corruption.

But what it turned into was actual corruption: White House official urging the Ukraine prosecutors to drop their investigation into Burisma. And to re-open a dormant corruption case into a a political operative who would later be pushed into the Trump campaign. We talk it over with John Solomon and the follow up with John Kiriakou. Was this yet another example of guilt engineering? Much like we’ve seen with George Papadopoulos. (and as John Kiriakou himself experienced.)

More Collusion by the Democrats

As we researched this week’s show and the collusion and corruption centered around Ukraine, it became abundantly clear we are at the mere tip of the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot more coming in the following weeks. John Solomon has been a one-man workhorse to expose this corruption. Be sure to take a look at the links below.

Ukraine as Impeachment Trigger

The Democrats’ actions aren’t reasonable or normal in the wake of what happened. Trump is looking into corruption. And for that they want to impeach him?

The Democrat’ actions can only be explained by sheer panic and desperation. Why are they so panicked over a phone call about corruption. If there was corruption by Joe Biden, shouldn’t they want to get to the bottom of things?

Instead, they’ve turned this into Trump allegedly abusing the power of his office by going after a political opponent.

It begs the question: just how many Democrats were profiting off the corruption in Ukraine?

The Ukraine Whistle Blower

Here’s what other sites have said about the whistle blower. He’s a Biden operative. He was formerly fired by the White House for leaking. Not to mention spreading false stories about Putin ordering Trump to do things. He is a registered democrat. And his name is Eric Ciaramella.

We talk with an actual whistle blower, John Kiriakou, about the Democrats secret whistle blower. John actually went to jail over his whistle blowing, as a patriot. You can imagine John has a lot to say about this guy who has been sniping from the deepest shadows of the Deep State.

    • The memo also stated that after a New York Times reporter contacted Alfa Bank about the pings, the “hidden server belonging to Trump then disappears.” It added “no one but Alfa Bank was asked.”
    • John: “The now debunked conspiracy theory about Alfa Bank and Russia collusion was given life through Steele’s contact at State, fanned by career bureaucrats and the Fusion GPS firm. It’s the sort of tale that makes some believe there is — or at least was — a ‘deep state’ trying to influence the 2016 election.”

    • “My sources say the FBI was a participant in the briefing but they cannot tell me which foreign power was raised with Clinton’s team because it remains classified. Several said the threat did not involve Russia, Ukraine or China though.”
      • So on the one hand, you have FBI and CIA planting evidence and assets into the Trump campaign, never telling Trump at all about “Russian agents” so he could help catch them — and on the other hand, you have US Intelligence giving a briefing to Hillary that they didn’t give to Trump

    • “The recent appointment of the austerity-loving U.S. citizen and investment firm chief Natalie Jaresko as Ukraine’s Finance Minister continues a trend that has seen one Eastern European country after another appointing or electing U.S. citizens as major government officials.
    • Jaresko had Ukrainian citizenship conferred on her by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as she arrived in Kiev to take up her new post in the government of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, himself a former legal U.S. resident

This Week:  Part 2 of our interview with former CIA whistle-blower, John Kiriakou, who was targeted for punishment.

As you heard last week, Kiriakou’s case was an example of the abuse of power. It was eerily similar (okay, exactly like) to what we are seeing in the Mueller probe. Last week, we also heard echoes of what has come out in the Inspector General’s report released last Thursday: people in positions of power, using that power to attack and destroy people they don’t like. Setting themselves up as judge, jury, and executioner.

If you missed last week’s broadcast go to I Spy’s archives to listen to the free podcast.  What you’ll hear is a story that is eerily similar to what came out of the IG report and to what we know about the Mueller probe. It’s a story about federal agencies being used to harass and target enemies of the Deep State. People who are meant to be made an example of so others don’t dare cross them — or dare to expose what really happened.

Our guest, John Kiriakou, faced their wrath and abuse of power in a very personal way.  He’s the “whistleblower” who went on ABC and confirmed the CIA was using torture on terrorists. Angry at being exposed, someone in the agency sought revenge and unleashed the FBI on John, including a secret four-year investigation that tracked his every move, including an effort to entrap him for treason.

So, this week we continue that conversation. We dig a little deeper into John Brennan, Robert Mueller, and John Kerry. We also find out more information on the investigators (or were they spies?) in Trump’s presidential campaign. But was Trump the only campaign being spied on?

Tune in to hear the leverage and tentacles that the CIA has over government officials and how they get it. And is there a current member of Oregon’s Congressional delegation on whom the CIA may have some dirt?

Any guesses who?

John Kiriakou CIA whistle-blower who went to prison when the CIA used the FBI to silence him as a warning to other whistle-blowers
John Kiriakou CIA whistle-blower who went to prison when the CIA used the FBI to silence him as a warning to other whistle-blowers

On today’s show, John Kiriakou will walk you through what it was like to be recruited (out of the blue) by the CIA, his training, and their attempt to recruit him into their enhanced interrogation program.

Things were going well until he was accused by ABC News of being one of the torturers of Abu Zubaydah, who was waterboarded. When John went on TV to defend himself and told Brian Ross about the program, which by then was declassified, someone in the CIA decided to silence him.

Join us as we hear John Kiriakou’s incredible story. How the CIA used the FBI to spy on him—an American citizen and patriot—in an effort to silence an enemy of the Deep State.

Tune in to hear how someone in the CIA urged the Obama administration to reopen his case, how the FBI launched a secret surveillance on him, tried to entrap him into committing treason, and when that didn’t work, used their bottomless prosecutorial checkbook to try to bankrupt him.

You’ll hear eerily similar tactics being used in the Mueller probe to force witnesses to do their will.

You’ll also hear who in the CIA had targeted John Kiriakou for silencing.

Then be sure to join us next week as we continue our discussion and take a deeper dive into the Deep State.

Part 2 of our interview with John Kiriakou will air the weekend of June 23/24. Show page for Part 2 is here.
