Dana Loesch Shoots Straight on Carson, Cruz & Trump

Dana Loesch, host of Dana on TheBlazeTV has had enough. Glenn welcomed Dana to The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday --- and she came out with both barrels blazing. The controversy about the Cruz campaign urging Ben Carson supporters to jump ship had Dana gunning for Trump as well as Carson.

“I'm at my limit with Trump,” Loesch said. “Because I just don't think calling someone a bimbo or suggesting that they're a bimbo or suggesting that they're sold out or suggesting that they've committed fraud is substitute for intelligent dissent. And I've kind of had that problem with his campaign now for some time. I've been incredibly cool about it, but now it's --- I mean, we're at the point where it's at level ridiculous. It's out of hand.”

Dana agreed that pointing the finger at Cruz is pointing in the wrong direction. The Carson campaign's laxed communication and CNN's fast-paced tweeting should be blamed for the confusion about the status of Carson's presidential campaign, not Cruz.

The Kardashian Candidate

While never a Trump supporter, she has interviewed him on her show and introduced him at CPAC. Her recent endorsement for Ted Cruz, however, has brought out the Trump trolls to come out in full force.

"Apparently, I'm a RINO whore "cuckservative," whatever that means," Dana said on The Glenn Beck Program. "I had to Google it really, and that was really disturbing.  I'm all of those things because I came out for Cruz."

Dana went on to lambast Trump's flip-flop on his Iowa results --- first humble and gracious then full-on attack when he smelled blood in the water.

“He's the equivalent of Kim Kardashian in American politics,” Loesch said. “We're looking at the Kardashian candidate. That's who this is. He's a chaos candidate who has been all over the board on every single issue. And anyone who tells themselves otherwise, they are lying to themselves.”

Bearing False Witness

Most troubling to Dana, though, was Carson’s religious tone on pointing the finger at Cruz --- and she did not mince words.

“Yeah, I was really angry about that. Because I think if you're going to go out there and cite Christ and be the Jesus candidate and be a representative of the faith and be a Christian, then why on earth are you bearing false witness against somebody for what your campaign did?” Dana lashed out. “That's not very Christ-like, and it's a horrible example." 

Also perplexing was how inconsequential the reports on Carson appeared to be when they first surfaced prior to last Monday’s caucuses.

“When I first saw it, that statement came right after Huckabee dropped out," Dana remembered. "And I thought, who goes back to Florida for fresh clothes? He's totally dropping out of the race. I thought that. But I didn't care because he's not a contender. He's a foil, and I didn't have my eyes on him, except to look at whose numbers he was picking off of. He was pulling from Trump and Rubio. He was not even an issue for Cruz.”

What made things even more frustrating was how obvious the timeline appeared to be and how much of a non-story the email the Cruz campaign sent out seemed at the time.

“I mean, you can see the timeline. People act like you can't see the timeline on Twitter. You can see when the first talking heads --- Chris Moody, Jake Tapper who said, 'We're hearing this from the Carson campaign.' And it sounded like, especially again after Huckabee dropped out, it sounded like he was leaving the campaign. That's on him and his campaign,” Dana said.

The Donald Effect

The one thing that was abundantly clear to Glenn was how, orchestrated or not, Trump seized the opportunity to turn the candidates against each other, causing damage to the party in general.

“Donald Trump is destroying the G.O.P. Destroying it,” Glenn said. “We are, all of us, at each other's throats. Carson --- because of Trump --- Carson is at Cruz's throat.  Rubio is at Cruz's throat. Everybody is at each other's throats, when we have much more in common. And somehow or another, the guy in the middle, Donald Trump, the ringleader, is not getting the shots. He's the least like us, and he's setting all of us against each other. If this guy isn't an operative of the Democratic National Committee, they should send him a giant check just for fun because, thanks. You've done a great job. You've destroyed the conservative movement.”

Glenn did have high praise for Dana, though.

“It's a coin toss between you and Megyn Kelly," Glenn said. "You two are the smartest women on television. And both of you will leave you in shreds before you even feel the knife go into you.”

Listen to the full segment below:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN:  Dana is smoking in two ways, in her usual way of being smoking, Dana Loesch --

DANA:  Literally burning things.

GLENN:  Yeah, you are on fire.  Last night on your TV show, you were -- I was told none of that was part of the script.

DANA:  No, it wasn't.

GLENN:  It wasn't.  The prompter person was like, where is she?  She's nowhere.

DANA:  They just stopped psychology after a while, and they just let it go.

GLENN:  You're really hacked off at two people.

DANA:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  Okay.  Where do you want to start?

DANA:  I don't know.  Where should we begin?  I've been really cool, I think this entire primary I've been incredibly fair.  I've had Donald Trump on my radio program.  I've had him on the television program of the network that he says he hates here because he hates you.

GLENN:  No, no, he just says we're a loser not worth his time.  But he's on yours.

DANA:  But then his people would approach me and email me, which is crazy I save all those emails.  And they wanted to come on the program.  So I was incredibly fair.  And it shocked people when I came out for Cruz, which I've always liked Cruz.  I've never liked Donald Trump.  Personally, he seemed like a nice guy.  Never liked him as a political candidate.  For a couple of years, he wanted me to introduce him at CPAC.  He reached out, asked for me to do it.  I did so last year, just to see what would happen and just so I could say that now because I knew where this was headed.  And so I've always been incredibly fair.  And the stuff that I've seen just in the last few weeks, I'm kind of at my limit.  And I was really --

GLENN:  In what way?  In what way?  First of all, have you gotten backlash for coming out and saying you're for Cruz?

DANA:  Oh, yeah.  Because the response is whore.  That's what --

GLENN:  Are you a fake conservative now?  Are you a sellout?  Are you an establishment goon?

DANA:  Apparently, I'm a RINO whore cuckservative, whatever that means.  I had to Google it really, and that was really disturbing.  I'm all of those things because I came out for Cruz, which okay.  I've been insulted by better.  A bunch of anonymous accounts aren't going to do anything.  I used to have SCIU HEP that came to my house.  A bunch of keyboard warriors, eating Hot Pockets in their mom's basement, that's not going to do nothing. (laughter)

PAT:  Well, but if you're for Ted Cruz, you actually sell your body for money.  Because we're all for Cruz, and I don't think anybody is buying.

GLENN:  If I sold my body for money, just for science --

DANA:  I was told that I had to come here to get my check, so that's why I'm here.

GLENN:  I sold my body for science.  Sell my body, sure.  They're like --

PAT:  No.

GLENN:  First time I've had sex in a while.  They're like, no, no, we want it for science.  The body that no one wants to get near.

So, anyway, you are in trouble with everybody.  And they were surprised that you were for Cruz.  You don't care about that.  Now you say you're at your limit with the --

DANA:  With Trump.  And Ben Carson.

GLENN:  Okay.  Let's start with Trump.

DANA:  I'm at my limit with Trump because I just don't think calling someone a bimbo or suggesting that they're a bimbo or suggesting that they're sold out or suggesting that they've committed fraud is substitute for intelligent dissent.  And I've kind of had that problem with his campaign now for some time.  I've been incredibly cool about it, but now it's -- I mean, we're at the point where it's at level ridiculous.  It's out of hand.

GLENN:  You know, my wife said to me last night, she said, she is done with him.  I mean, she's been done with him for a long time.  But she's really done with him.  And he is officially a total joke now that he's calling for a recount.  

DANA:  He's the equivalent of Kim Kardashian in American politics.  We're looking at the Kardashian candidate.  That's who this is.  He's a chaos candidate who has been all over the board on every single issue.  And anyone who tells themselves otherwise, they are lying to themselves.

GLENN:  Did you see -- I did a show a couple of days ago.  And I'm trying to remember the guest.  He's a military strategist.  And he talked about, it's like the ODSS or something.

DANA:  Yeah.  The loop.

GLENN:  Yeah, the loop.

DANA:  Where it's all about observation and then reaction.  Yes.  Yes.

GLENN:  Yes.  Okay.  So it's this military strategy on how to beat your opponents.  And he said, it is exactly the strategy that Donald Trump is using, but will lose because of it.

DANA:  Right.

GLENN:  Because he is a chaos candidate.

DANA:  Exactly.

GLENN:  So what's happening is he's using this military strategy of going in and just causing chaos, and no one can keep up with the chaos.  So he punches through.  But the problem is, at some point, there will be -- right now, it's working because he's against, you know, five, six, seven, eight other candidates.  Once it gets down to one or two, it falls apart because by that time, the opponents know, it's chaos.  Don't react to it.  Just keep going.  Sound like Ted Cruz?  Once you don't react to him, you just punch right through because you stay on message.

DANA:  Well, that's it entirely.  I forget what the acronym is.  But he's disrupted the loop, and that's why he's being successful right now.  So the only way to get back at him is to disrupt his loop.  That's why you have to go -- and go about that.

GLENN:  So how do you think people are -- I don't know.  I feel like we live in this bubble where none of this makes sense to any of us.  None of this makes sense.  But apparently it makes sense to people, how Donald Trump, the guy who never wins, who is just going to speak straight, is now calling for a recount or a redo.  That just --

DANA:  Everybody come back.  Stop.  Sorry.

GLENN:  It's second grade.  It's second grade.

STU:  And he's complaining that the state of Iowa should come down and overturn that election.  Well, it wasn't an election; it was a caucus.  And the state of Iowa doesn't run it.  That's an interesting -- the guy doesn't even understand the procedures of what he's involved in.  And he's acting as if he's the savior for Ben Carson after he spent a month calling him a pedophile and saying he's psychotic.

DANA:  Exactly.

GLENN:  Let's go over what happened.  First of all, as I said yesterday, if I were Ted Cruz -- and I don't think this is dirty tactics.  And I read -- did you find out for me if Rubio was doing this too, Jeffy?  

JEFFY:  We have not confirmed that 100 percent.

GLENN:  So let's not get into it.

It's exactly what I would do.  If someone said on CNN, your competitor is going to not go to New Hampshire.  He's going to spend the week at clothes because he has to get fresh clothes, I would say, "There's something wrong here."  And I would tell my lead caucus people, "Get the Carson people because he's dropping out."  There's nothing wrong with that.  That's absolutely fair game.  Because it didn't make sense.  So you assume that's what's going on.  It's not like you're making this up.  It didn't make sense.  So that's what he did.

Now, like Donald Trump is above any kind of dirty tricks --

DANA:  He has Roger HEP Stones, aka the dirty trickster working with him.  I don't believe that.

GLENN:  Right.  And now, after calling Carson a pedophile, to get in, he sweet-talks.  This is what he does.  He sweet-talks people.  And I'm going to protect you.  I'm going to be there with you.  When all he's doing is bleeding you dry.  Carson has not endorsed Trump, but one of his main campaign guys went to work for Trump.

DANA:  Yeah, went to go work for his campaign.  I'm not surprised.  I think Trump ate up Huckabee's campaign.  And I think he's doing the same for Carson.  He's wanting to get Carson's votes.

GLENN:  How can people who voted for Carson possibly go to Trump?

DANA:  That's a great question.  That's a great question.  And they have no proof.  They cannot point to anybody who left the caucus -- who stopped caucusing with Carson and went with Trump.

And can I say too, how stupid is someone -- like, if you have an operative from another campaign that gets up on stage and is like, hey, I heard your guy is dropping out.  You guys should come caucus with us.  If they believe that, they deserve to lose because that's stupid.  That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

STU:  Well, and first of all, Ben Carson actually over performed many of his polls.  So it's not like this hurt him and he went -- he actually did a little bit better.

GLENN:  It's not like he was going to beat Marco Rubio.

DANA:  They all did well.  Rubio over performed too.  So did Rubio cheat?

GLENN:  So did Cruz.  

DANA:  All of them would have had to cheat.  

GLENN:  Except for Trump.  Except for Trump.

STU:  Does anybody realistically think that 14 points would have been made up because of this one report of this one person at a caucus saying this?  It's absurd.  

DANA:  His people thought he was going to win Iowa, Stu.

JEFFY:  Yeah.

STU:  Oh, that's true.  I guess if they thought that.

GLENN:  They were delusional.

DANA:  I mean, he's a nice guy.  Don't get me wrong.  And I love the way he talks.  I want him to read me a bedtime story, not be my commander-in-chief.

GLENN:  I feel like, if he read me a bedtime story, he would fall asleep faster than I would.

(laughter)

I mean, honestly, that man is almost asleep all the time.

DANA:  Actually, I'm going to redefine it.  I don't know if I think if he's a super nice guy anymore.

STU:  Yeah.  Me too.

GLENN:  No, I will tell you this, what you said on the show yesterday, sticks with me.  Talk about bearing false witness.

DANA:  Yeah, I was really angry about that.  Because I think if you're going to go out there and cite Christ and be the Jesus candidate and be a representative of the faith and be a Christian, then why on earth are you bearing false witness against somebody for what your campaign did.  That's not very Christ-like, and it's a horrible example.  We have people who are running away from the faith because of hypocrisy like this, and we don't need to add another example to the catalog.  Even the devil can quote Scripture, as Carson has proved.

GLENN:  Whoa.  Wow.

STU:  Think about this.  This goes back to something you've talked about a million times, Glenn, is even when good people get into this game, they turn into bad people.

DANA:  They all do.

STU:  They do bad things.  They fall down on their face over and over again.  And it's so rare.  It's one of the reasons why we like Cruz so much.  It's so rare to find a person who can make it through that jungle --

GLENN:  I'm sorry.  I know people -- I'm reading all kinds of horrible things about Ted Cruz, but I mean this sincerely, I have not seen Ted Cruz behave any way other than honorable the whole time.  He has been attacked by every single -- you should -- you didn't go to Iowa, did you?

DANA:  No.

GLENN:  When we went to Iowa, we turned on the television and the radio.  It was nonstop ads.  You got that.  But they were you all attacking Ted Cruz.  All of them.  So every candidate was attacking Ted Cruz.  And yet he never responded in kind.  He wasn't on the campaign trail saying bad things about people.  He was saying what the records were.  But he wasn't saying bad things.  And he was taking the full frontal assault from Donald Trump the whole time.  And he won.  I tell you, if he stays the course, I think you're just -- I think you're going to see -- at some point, America is like the underdog.  At some point, they'll realize, the guy who just won in Iowa is still the underdog.

DANA:  Yeah.

GLENN:  He's still the guy that everybody is against.

DANA:  And he apologized to be classy.  And because he said, "Well, this information that came out from CNN -- because people in CNN were tweeting it before it ever hit television.  When I first saw it, that statement came right after Huckabee dropped out.  And I thought, who goes back to Florida for fresh clothes?  He's totally dropping out of the race.  I thought that.  But I didn't care because he's not a contender.  He's a foil, and I didn't have my eyes on him, except to look at whose numbers he was picking off of.  He was pulling from Trump and Rubio.  He was not even an issue for Cruz.  And so I thought that.

This -- I mean, you can see the time line.  People act like you can't see the time line on Twitter.  You can see when the first talking heads -- Chris Moody.  Jake Tapper who said, we're hearing this from the Carson campaign.  And it sounded like, especially again after Huckabee dropped out, it sounded like he was leaving the campaign.  That's on him and his campaign

GLENN:  Why wouldn't you say that?  As someone who is running a campaign, you would be negligent if you didn't say to your people, "You know what, he's dropping out.  Get his people.  If he's dropping out, get his people."  Negligent.

DANA:  Right.

STU:  The absurd thing was they said, oh, well, he has to get a set of fresh clothes, and he's going to drop out.  

Yesterday, he was still in his press conference talking about his clothing, which was bizarre.  But the accusation is essentially, he'll leave the campaign trail with eight days left before an important state.  Nobody would do that go who is sensible.  What has he done?  He's actually denying he's leaving the campaign.  But he did leave the campaign trail for two days.  His campaign won't put a schedule of public events.  What is he doing?  If you've donated money to this guy, you have to be --

GLENN:  This is the most bizarre election I've ever seen in my life.

STU:  True.

GLENN:  I mean, honestly.  Honestly.  Porky Pig could crawl and claw his way out of Ben Carson's nose, and I would be less surprised.  I would be like, "Oh.  Another thing going on.  Who would have seen that?  I didn't know Porky Pig was real, and I certainly had no idea he was living in Ben Carson's nose."

DANA:  I think Trump is planning a third party run.  If he can't the Iowa G.O.P.  Which they need to respond on this.  RNC is going to have to respond on it.

GLENN:  I will tell you, will you stay for a few minutes?  Because I want to talk a little about Christians and your understanding of what's going on there.  And also, Donald Trump is destroying the G.O.P.  Destroying it.  We are, all of us, at each other's throats.  Carson -- because of Trump, Carson is at Cruz's throat.  Rubio is at Cruz's throat.  Everybody is at each other's throats, when we have much more in common.  And somehow or another, the guy in the middle, Donald Trump, the ringleader, is not getting the shots.  He's the least like us.  And he's setting all of us against each other.  If this guy isn't an operative of the Democratic National Committee, they should send him a giant check just for fun because, thanks.  You've done a great job.  You've destroyed the conservative movement.

STU:  He's trying.

GLENN:  They might do that.  Well, they will -- if Clinton gets in, believe me he won't get a check, but I can guarantee you he'll get some property that he wanted.  He'll get some -- the government will move something out of his way.

DANA:  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  Sponsor this half-hour is Casper.  After spending a few days in Iowa, you can realize why bears go into caves and hibernate because it is freaking cold.  And there are times that you just want to be in bed and pull up the covers.  For me, that's almost all winter.  No matter where you live, it feels good to crawl into a comfortable bed and just hibernate.  And it's a comfortable bed that you need.  Get a Casper Mattress.  You get the mattress, the sheets, and the pillows.  Did you get the sheets and pillows, Pat, these came out after we ordered the mattress.

PAT:  I got the mattress.

GLENN:  Did you get the pillows and sheets?

PAT:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Anyway, the Casper Mattress, it's really, really great.  You'll have a really comfortable sleep.  Pat can't walk when he doesn't sleep on it because his back is bad.  I can sleep like that and sleep all the way through.  (?) if you don't love the mattress, the sheets, the pillows, they'll pick them up and refund absolutely every dime.  Casper.com.  Use the promo code Beck $50 towards the purchase of your mattress.  Casper.com.  Promo code Beck.  Get $50 off the purchase of your mattress.  Terms and conditions do apply.

(OUT AT 8:24AM)

GLENN:  I'm so excited for tonight's broadcast at 5 o'clock on TheBlaze.  Tonight's broadcast.  Mercury One's first evacuation of the Christians.  You'll go behind the scenes and see the evacuation of these Christians.  149 people.  Thirty-two families.  It airs tonight at 5:00 p.m. if you can't watch it tonight, the entire episode will be available on Friday for download on iTunes and Amazon and Google Play.  So make sure you watch it tonight at 5 o'clock, only on TheBlaze TV.

While we're here talking about Christians, what is happening to people like Jerry Falwell and now Ben Carson?  What is happening to people?

DANA:  Well, I've --

(laughter)

I've never been -- let me put this in a different way.  I've -- I've never been like a big Falwell person.

GLENN:  Oh, I like Jerry Falwell.

DANA:  See, look.  He doesn't pay me to agree with him.  That just goes to show you right there.  I've never been a big Falwell person.

GLENN:  Is it because you're a whore?

DANA:  It's probably because I am.  And a HEP cukservative.  Let's not forget that.  

No, people are mad, and I think even a lot of Christians are allowing anger to get the better of them.  Fear is the lack of faith, and a lot of people are really afraid right now.  And they're running to the wrong things, instead of running to their faith.  They're running to just the wrong things to make themselves feel better about going into this.  And people really don't have patience.  This is not something that you correct in terms of the direction of our country in just like one or two election cycles.  This is a generational thing.  We are done if we think that we're going to go up against the progressive left, who have been putting these pieces together for generations, longer than, you know, your grandparents, great-grandparents.  We're not going to change that in a couple.  And people -- it's too hard for them to go out and change hearts and minds.  You aren't going to do that on Facebook or Twitter.

GLENN:  You remember when I was talking, Stu -- this was years ago.  When I was talking about writing a book called the 100-year Plan.  Do you remember that?

STU:  Uh-huh.

GLENN:  I wanted to come up with a 100-year plan.  Do exactly what the progressives did.  I couldn't get Simon or Schuster or anyone to print the book because they said, "Nobody is interested in the 100-year plan."  And I said, "That's why we'll lose."  Unless we think like the progressives and understand that one election won't do it, we'll never win.  Because they are patient.  They're like the Chinese.  They will just wait.  Look at what's happening.  This is possibly -- this or 2024 will be the last generation that even understands the America we're saying we want to restore.  They won't -- by 2024, they won't understand this concept of America, unless we have not a progressive-lite like George W. Bush or Marco Rubio, but an actual conservative constitutionalist.  Deemphasize the conservative and emphasize the constitutionalist.  If we don't repair the Constitution, you lose religion.  You lose -- you lose it all.  You lose it all.  You lose freedom of speech.

DANA:  I completely agree.  You lose it all.  And I know immigration is the big issue.  But people are so -- they're so focused on that.  They think they have to sacrifice everything else.  I've seen other pundits say, "Oh well, you know, let's just throw abortion out the window."  Why are we having to sacrifice on anything?  Again, it comes to down to fear.  I don't want to compromise.  We've comprised so much.

GLENN:  Draw a line in the sand and just like Davy HEP Crockett.  I'm on this side of the line.  You want to join me on this side of the line, great.  If not, move on.

DANA:  Yeah.  You all can go to hell, I'm going to Texas.

(OUT AT 8:31AM)

GLENN:  We're spending some time with Dana Loesch, who is always a pleasure to have on.

DANA:  Thanks.

GLENN:  She follows my show at 5 o'clock Central, 6 o'clock Eastern on TheBlaze.  She is -- she is -- you're Megyn Kelly.  You're the only one who is even close to Megyn Kelly.  I mean, I don't want to pit you and Megyn Kelly against each other because I love you both.

DANA:  Who do you like more, Glenn?  Come on.

GLENN:  It's a coin toss between you and Megyn Kelly.  You two are the smartest --

DANA:  It's a high compliment.  Thank you.

GLENN:  The smartest women on television.  And both of you will leave you in shreds before you even feel the knife go into you.  You're like, I think I've just been sliced up into little pieces.

DANA:  Thank you.  I appreciate that.

STU:  Wow.

DANA:  That's the stuff I like to hear.

STU:  Wow.  Adorable, yet incredibly violent compliment.

GLENN:  So can we talk about a couple of things?

DANA:  Sure.

GLENN:  Let's talk about how -- for instance, did you see the Tea Party Patriots endorse Cruz?

DANA:  Yes, I was glad that they did.

GLENN:  But, you know, what was really funny, they were on the bandwagon for Trump hard.

DANA:  Yes, yes.

GLENN:  Why do you say that?

DANA:  No reason.  No, they are.

GLENN:  Then their people -- they did a vote, and their people went -- what was it, Pat?  80 percent?

PAT:  I don't remember the percentage.  It was huge though.

GLENN:  It was huge.  Between 60 or 80 percent of the Tea Party Patriots of the vote between the people.  They said, what are you doing?  It's Cruz.  So they had to endorse.  But the leadership was all for Trump.  Same thing it looks like -- I've talked to a few writers at Breitbart.  You call them Trumpbart.  But I've talked to a few writers.  I haven't, but my people have talked to a few writers because they have called us and said, you wouldn't believe -- I mean, we're getting stories.  Spite.  And we have to write certain stories.

DANA:  Oh, yeah, I can imagine.  I mean, Trumpbart.  That's sort of how the way it is.

GLENN:  You worked there.

DANA:  Uh-huh.  I've always been amazed at people's whose business models depended on getting a Drudge link.  And to have someone -- I mean, I don't care.  You know, it is what it is.  But I -- there's a -- there's a bias.  I don't even go to that site and look at it.  I mean, I've looked at it one time and it was all Trump, Trump, Trump.  That's all it is anymore.  That's not even a question.

GLENN:  Can I ask you -- because you used to work there.  You hated me for a while, didn't you?

DANA:  I never hated you.

GLENN:  You just didn't like me?

DANA:  No.  I never did not like you, uh-uh.

GLENN:  You just didn't listen to anybody.

DANA:  No, HEP I except now.  Because you pay and I'm a conservative whore.

STU:  Woo.

GLENN:  Could we define -- (?) is it okay to define --

DANA:  No, don't Google it.

GLENN:  Somebody called me that as well.

DANA:  I felt really Puritan.  Apparently it is now.  (?)

STU:  Street word.

GLENN:  Okay.  Street word.

PAT:  It's like a compound word.  It's really technical.

STU:  We could probably focus on another thing.

JEFFY:  I looked it up.

GLENN:  Here's another thing, how does the G.O.P. and the conservative media survive?  Because here's what's happening, G.O.P. is eating itself right now.  I mean, we've never had an easier candidate to beat than Hillary Clinton.  Never.  Jimmy Carter was harder than Hillary Clinton.  We've never had one that was more out of touch.  (?) everybody -- even her own supporters know that she's a liar.  Okay.  So we've never had someone easier to beat, but because of Donald Trump, we are feasting on each other.  And I feel drawing divisions that are so deep, we may never heal from those.  On top of it, you have the media and organizations selling their soul for positions and power and possibly money.  I don't know.  And you have -- you have it not only in places like Breitbart, but you also have it in Fox News.  Who I don't know if you noticed this, they were all for Trump, until it was clear -- for a while it was neck-and-neck.  Razor-thin margin.  When it was four points difference between Trump and Cruz.  It was one point between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and they weren't calling it razor-thin.  Four points, they were calling it razor-thin, until they got the story of Marco Rubio.  Then they immediately started talking about what a great thing it would be to have a Hispanic to win in Marco Rubio.

DANA:  Because Ted Cruz is not a Hispanic?

GLENN:  I don't know.  How does the conservative movement survive or doesn't, as we know it now?  How does it survive with this going on?

DANA:  Oh, it's going to be hard.  Because right now, the -- I just see if certain people succeed, the conservative movement, at least the perception (?) it's become unfashionable even within the right and the Republican Party to be a conservative before.  There are people afraid to speak out because they're afraid that it's going to hurt their popularity, it's going to hurt their ad sale.  They're not going to get sponsorships.  (?) you see it happen with a number of different pundits.  You see it happen with a number of different websites.  Because everybody wants to be in the G.O.P. smart set.  (?) everybody started making it about Rubio.  Oh, my gosh, but it's razor-thin there with Cruz and Trump.  By razor-thin, you mean thousands of votes.  That's a pretty huge gap there.

GLENN:  It wasn't razor-thin between Rubio and Cruz.  I never heard one comment, Mann have man, this is getting close.  (?) maybe there's a possibility that Rubio passes Trump.  But it was razor-thin up until the very end.

DANA:  It's so frustrating.  We're up against the guy from Up and the shady chick (?) he just needs the tennis ball on him.

GLENN:  Oh, that's funny.

DANA:  We're up against those people.  It's the easiest thing in the world.  They have (?) cocktail shrimp.  They're the face of the Democrat Party.  We have young people.  We have a diverse lineup.  And everybody is trying to be kingmaker.  You have media entities trying to be kingmaker.  They don't know the difference between being an activist and a kingmaker.

GLENN:  Wait.  (?) explain to us.

DANA:  You're being hops about it.  You're not being a kingmaker.  You're saying, this is my preference.  You're giving your opinion.  But when you run a media outlet and trying to be a kingmaker without disclosing, look, I want this guy in my office because I want to be able to have this influence.

GLENN:  There's a difference between.  (?)

DANA:  Sometimes I'm not even sure you're down the hall.  No, you've never done that.

GLENN:  Right.

STU:  That's one of the most surprising things about the Trump phenomenon.  There's two kind of ways they argue for Trump.  One is we're sick of losing.  We need a winner.  It's such a weird way to (?) against the Democrats.  Usually he's the only one in the field who loses to Hillary Clinton.

DANA:  Wait for all this winning.

STU:  When does it happen?

GLENN:  Does anybody think it's a real possibility -- a real possibility, that he -- and I'm not saying that it was set up in advance, that Donald Trump has done this to destroy the conservative movement?

DANA:  I wouldn't.  I'm not surprised by anything.  There are no coincidences in politics.  There are none.  He's been wanting to run for the White House for 2000.  (?) there's a great book called the deals and the down falls that Wayne.  (?) his White House aspirations.  People should read that book, if you can get it.  The word on the street is that Trump tried to squash it.  You can get it on Amazon for a lot of money.  It's literally like $100 for this book, which was written forever ago.  But he's had White House aspirations for some time.  And he's been friendly with Harry Reid.  He's donated money to Harry Reid.  He's donated more money (?) although I'm suddenly glad he's interested.  I want to make the point too, with all the concern for Ben Carson, some of the most zealous (?) are white nationalizes.  And I'm glad some of the (?) I'm glad to see that happening.  But he's had these -- he's had this goal to run for office for quite some time.  And it's smart.  I mean, I have to give him credit for doing a reality TV show and keeping himself out there in pop culture.  That's great.  But now, what are you bringing to the table besides platitude?  We're going to win so bad.  Okay.  We're still waiting for that part.  Where is the winning?  I see the whining.  I don't see the winning.

GLENN:  Tell me what you think is going to happen.

DANA:  I think there are two outcomes.  You can see Ted Cruz -- for me, it's either going to be Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio that ends up winning, and that's if Trump has decided he has enough ego battering.  (?) because New Hampshire is full of establishments and moderates.  This is the state that the Republican Party never carries in a general, yet they've gone for John McCain and Mitt Romney during the primary time.  I don't see him performing well in South Carolina.  That's something that's going to go either towards Cruz or rube.  The fact that he's not targeting Rubio tells me everything.  (?) he's working to take out Cruz for Rubio just because -- if the guy that's right behind you and that is the biggest threat -- the biggest threat to him isn't Cruz, it's Rubio.

GLENN:  Did you ever consider Rubio as a real candidate for you, personally?

DANA:  I'm concerned about the Gang of Eight stuff.  I want to completely suspend.  And I don't believe in amnesty.  (?)

STU:  He's in another world than the Bushes.

DANA:  He's so not like Jeb Bush.  If Rubio is the guy, I could totally vote for him.  I've come out for Cruz.  But if the nominee ends up being Rubio, that's a heck of a lot better than Donald Trump.  At least you know where Rubio stands about stuff.  Where you have Bernie Sanders who is honest about being a socialist.  (?) Donald Trump is like, well, we'll deport them all.  And we'll use all our resources and all our money to do that.  And then we'll use our money to let them back in.

JEFFY:  We'll use the door.

STU:  The big beautiful door.

DANA:  Right.  That's right.

GLENN:  Here's the problem that I have.  He is honest.  He has been honest.  He's not honest as Pat continually -- because Pat is done with Marco Rubio.

STU:  He's definitely souring on him.

STU:  They have a fight about taking the garbage out.  And they're still battling it out.  (?)

GLENN:  The thing I can't get past more than the Gang of Eight, he is strong on the NSA.  He's not budging on that.  But I admire him for saying that.  But it scares me that we'll have another one who will just make any -- you know, he'll just say, "Hey, for security --

DANA:  But what kind of deals would Trump make?

GLENN:  Oh, my gosh.

PAT:  Oh, please.

DANA:  A little establishment in him, I don't know.

GLENN:  We might all be having this conversation in a different place --

DANA:  I'm going to go into the caves of the on his arc.

STU:  I've always wanted to visit Guantanamo Bay.

GLENN:  We'll all be wearing orange.

PAT:  He was pretending like second was good for him.  Now it's just --

GLENN:  We're back.  And Donald Trump is -- last night on Greta, Donald Trump was talking about this fraud that Ted Cruz -- the guy has turned into Al Gore in the 2000 election.  He wants a recount.  He says this is a fraud.  Here's the most powerful, toughest guy on earth, suddenly a victim of Ted Cruz.  A victim.

GLENN:  What's really scary is -- this is exactly.  And I'm sorry.  But this is exactly what Adolf Hitler did with the Brownshirts.  You train your audience, you train your followers to be thugs and to scare people.  And then before you know it, they're beating people in the streets.  When this guy has said three times to his people in large crowds, "Hey, if somebody does something, beat the snot out of them.  Beat them down and I'll spend your expenses for attorney bills."  Why is the press not saying this kind of language leads to violence?  Where are they?

STU:  I don't know.  And it's funny to see Mr. Tough guy who wants you to beat up everybody who disagrees is at the same time is the ultimate victim.  All the people were fooling the voters.

Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements. In the third part of our special series on the REAL Ukraine scandal, my team's research exposes a much bigger story into what Democrats were doing in Ukraine. Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences on our democracy today. It's all happening under the nose of the president and, more importantly, without the approval of the American people.

There's a big difference between conspiracy THEORY and conspiracy FACT. A conspiracy THEORY is an attempt to explain or connect the dots on something, but without any hard evidence. Everything in this is backed up with hard evidence. Is it a conspiracy? Absolutely it is, but it's a conspiracy FACT.

Watch the full special here:

As you watch the special, take time to explore the documents below, with all the proof you need to come to your own conclusion about the impeachment inquiry, Soros, and Ukraine.

Here are the facts

The Obama Administration has been working IN TANDEM with George Soros, supporting his NGOs, going all the way back to the months leading up to the Ukrainian Coup in 2014. In 2013, just before the coup, Soros' International Renaissance Foundation was their primary financier, but the U.S. Embassy was also strangely giving them money.

Link: https://antac.org.ua/en/pro-nas/ (Go to finances and mouse over 2013, notice IRS and US Embassy.)

From 2014 through 2017, basically up until Trump became president, the two main sources of funding came from George Soros and the Obama Administration through USAID.

Link: https://antac.org.ua/en/pro-nas/ (Go to finances and mouse over 2014-2017, notice IRS and USAID.)

Now look at 2018. The Trump Administration halted the money from USAID, so look who stepped in to pull the extra weight: Soros doubled down, and then the U.S. Embassy resumed their funding role just as they did BEFORE the 2014 coup.

Link: https://antac.org.ua/en/pro-nas/ (Go to finances and mouse over 2018, notice IRS, Open Society and US Embassy.)

Why is the U.S. Embassy, and by extension the State Department, working with George Soros? What do they have to gain from this relationship? Let me ask you this: have you noticed where all the people that have been called to testify against Donald Trump in the impeachment inquiry have come from? They're ALL career diplomats. They're all privy to what went down in the months leading up to the Ukrainian Coup, and everything that went down from then up until Donald Trump. And this includes, if the rumors are correct, the whistleblower, whom everyone in Washington believes is Eric Ciaramella.

Link: https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2...

Ciaramella is a CIA analyst, and was on the NSC during the Trump Administration as a Ukraine expert. He was later kicked out of the White House for leaking information and pushing Russia collusion hoaxes. He also worked directly with DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa who was tasked with working alongside the Ukrainian Embassy in the U.S. to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. And if all of this isn't enough to discredit him as a witness, he ALSO worked alongside Joe Biden when he was made the “point man" in Ukraine. It's becoming all too painfully obvious why Adam Schiff doesn't want anyone talking to this guy.

Why are all these State Department officials, and CIA/NSC staffers so scared of Donald Trump poking around in Ukraine? I wonder ... does it have anything to do with the financing of some of these groups like the Soros funded NGO? I pointed out in my mega chalkboard that Ukrainian prosecutors claimed to have evidence that over SEVEN BILLION had been misappropriated. Is this part of that, because that's kind of important here. And would it also be important, or relevant, if the people currently involved in impeachment were dealing with these funds that were being given to groups like the Soros NGO? That is an answer we can not find, but that is an answer that Donald Trump was asking for on they July 25th phone call ... and it MUT BE ANSWERED in a Senate trial.

Link: https://foia.state.gov/Search/results.aspx?searchT...

This email chain was released via a Freedom of Information Act request. The first email is from the alleged whistleblower sent to all the heavy weights within the State Department that were working on Ukraine. The entire email has been redacted. Whatever Ciaramella specifically said, the State Department doesn't want us to know about, but the final email in the chain reveals the overall context: Obama Administration dollars, going through the U.S. Embassy via USAID.

And the State Department official that replied with this information, was Christopher Anderson. Now why does that name sound familiar?

Link: https://www.npr.org/2019/10/30/774552056/read-chri...

Oh that's right. He was testifying against Donald Trump at the impeachment inquiry twi weeks ago. They're ALL connected ... and the coup is on

But still, this begs the question: what was really going on in Ukraine and WHY?

Being that U.S. funding to Soros backed groups began in 2013, we started looking beyond our initial timeline. We noticed one name pop up again, and again and again. That name is Alec Ross.

Ross was appointed to the State Department as the Senior Advisor on Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He first started popping up in Ukraine in late 2011.

This is Ross at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine on a fact finding mission where he was quote:

Learning about the local status of internet freedom and discussing Secretary Clinton's 21st Century Statecraft agenda.

Link: https://usembassykyiv.wordpress.com/tag/alec-ross/

This is Alec Ross addressing the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine in October 2011 (5:03 to 5:23).

Disruptive change. Some might describe this as CHAOS, but ultimately — for those willing to exploit it — the reward is ... POWER.

For most of us, no matter which side of the aisle you're on, we all pretty much agree that regime change and stoking chaos is NOT what the American people want. But this is EXACTLY what was going on under the Obama Administration, and it was all being done in YOUR name.

Hillary's State Department was bastardizing a plan that actually began a few weeks after Obama was elected in November 2008.

Link: https://2001-2009.state.gov/r/us/2008/112605.htm

It was an initiative called Public Diplomacy 2.0, and it's stated goal was to enable people in other countries to combat violent or extreme ideology. More specifically, Islamic radicalism from Al Qaeda.

Link: https://2001-2009.state.gov/r/us/2008/112310.htm

The State Department invited tech savvy people from all over the world to show them how to network and launch Social Media campaigns to counter radical ideology.

Link: https://2009-2017.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2009/nov/1...

But just a few months later, under the Obama Administration, Clinton changed Public Diplomacy 2.0 to “Civil Society 2.0." Here's Alec Ross on what Civil Society 2.0 was doing, and how they were actively training groups to mobilize through Social Media.

Let's just call a spade a spade here. Civil Society 2.0 was a training ground for the foot soldiers of what began to be known as “indigenous, spontaneous uprisings." And if you're curious as to what “civil society" or “open society" groups should be advocating, here's Hillary Clinton speaking THIS YEAR on civil society organizations (1:00:52 to 1:01:40).

Was that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren or was that Hillary Clinton? Civil Society 2.0 came to Ukraine in 2011. Alec Ross' TechCamps commenced shortly after, teaching native activists and NGOs how to mobilize, and carry their online presence to the streets.

I want to show you a video taken within the Ukrainian Parliament in November 2013. This was BEFORE the Ukrainian uprising ousted the former regime (0:20 to 1:07).

It's important to point out that this lawmaker was very pro-Russia, and he was being shouted down because of that. But it's also important to point out that everything he just said, WE KNOW was actually happening.

As we analyzed Ukraine, we started to break down the left's strategy in tearing down an entire country, and molding it in line with their political ideology. The founders of the Fabian Society would be impressed.

It's a four part strategy, and — since Ukraine was so successful for them — we'll use it as the case study. I want you to know that I'm only using Ukraine as an example, but this is happening all over the world.

Step one: The U.S. State Department - and their proxies like the National Endowment for Democracy and Freedom House - identifies, trains and funds “Civil Society" groups to mobilize.

This is Civil Society 2.0 and operations like Alec Ross' “TechCamps."

Link: https://2009-2017.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/09/19...

It all began in Ukraine — eerily enough — on September 11, 2012.

And make no mistake ... these programs are designed for one thing: REVOLUTION. They operate to nurture chaos and collapse regimes. They're not even trying to hide that fact. Check out this quote from Alec Ross:

Some of the things that I spoke about when I came into the department — things like leaderless revolution or virtual organizations — might have been really edgy or a little off-center. But after Tunisia and Egypt, nobody is questioning the abstraction of leaderless revolutions, and after WikiLeaks, certainly everybody understands the power of virtual, globally distributed organizations.

Link: https://mashable.com/2011/08/22/alec-ross-tech-int...

Leaderless revolutions ... kind of sounds familiar doesn't it? “You can't ban or go after ANTIFA. They're just a leaderless activist group." “We can't shut down Occupy Wall Street ... there's no leadership."

No administration in their right mind — outside of Obama and Hillary — would condone something like this. That's why they built it to run separately within already established organizations like the State Department. These policies are being pursued RIGHT NOW, and they could give a flying crap who the president is. Again, from Alec Ross:

Instead of trying to create a new bureau, what we wanted to do was build a long-term institutional capacity. I leave feeling that the work has been fully institutionalized and that the programs will live on.

Link: https://foreignpolicy.com/2013/03/14/tech-guru-ale...

A little tip for Alec and Hillary: Hydra from Captain America ... they're the BAD GUYS. Maybe you should stop talking and acting like them.

Is it starting to become clear now why the U.S. Ambassador in Ukraine was telling Ukrainian lawmakers to keep their hands off of Soros NGOs? One fo the satr witnesses for Adam Schiff in the impeachment is the former ukrainian ambassador that trump and the new president of ukraine spoke about in the Jukly 25th call. Multiple sources verify that she told the prosecutor general in uktraine to keep their hands off of the soros ngos, and various others. Is it now a littl emore lcr]ear why should would have said that? Because Soros is working with the State Dpearmtnet. Its not criminal to them… its the plan. And why a CIA analyst was involved in USAID money going into Ukraine, and now is a whistleblower against a president that was looking into it? Or maybe why the main witnesses in the impeachment are all from the State Department and diplomatic corps? And also how the intelligence community and FBI has seemingly been operating on their own to bring down Trump. It's because, as Alec Ross said, this operation has now been quote, “institutionalized and will live on.'' This House impeachment trial is why Elliot Ness had to switch jurys. Because Al Capone had paid off the jury, press, judges and was controlling who was testifying.

Step 2: When opportunity emerges, U.S. trained activists go into action.

I'll talk about the Arab Spring more in a bit, but the opportunity in the Middle East and North Africa was a Tunisian fruit vendor setting himself on fire. For Ukraine, it was when the former president decided to side with Russia over the European Union. That's when all the people that Alec Ross and the State Department trained went into action.

Step 3: The State Department, and their proxies, actively support the opposition.

Under Obama, this was actual Administration policy, but now this happens REGARDLESS of the elected administration's policy by the “INSTITUTIONALIZED" Deep State. This institutionalized policy is what all witnesses were talking about in the impeachment trial. Trump is a threat to the policy they have going, and they will NOT STOP doing this policy no matter what the president says.

As activists, protesters and riots began to overtake the streets in Ukraine, Victoria Nuland — the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs — travel to Ukraine 3 separate times. In December 2013, she was even seen handing out cookies to activists in the streets!

Link: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/dec/15/john...

That same month, John McCain showed that Obama's regime change policy was a bipartisan effort when he went to Ukraine to meet with the Ukrainian opposition. But lets not forget, it was the same John McCain that went over to Syria to meet with the terrorists who later became ISIS. When the administration used this very revolutionary system to try and overthrow Assad.

The National Endowment for Democracy, which I just showed you in our little history lesson a few minutes ago, reported that it spent over 3 million of YOUR tax dollars in Ukraine.

Link: https://web.archive.org/web/20140831044648/http://www.ned.org/where-we-work/eurasia/ukraine

Question: Why has this report has been scrubbed from their official website? And when will people learn the internet is forever?

Their funding included more than thirty thousand dollars to George Soros' Open Society Foundation. Again, this begs the question: why was the U.S. Government helping George Soros? What was their ultimate goal here?

The answer to those questions lies in the final stage of this plan.

Step 4: Once regime change has occurred, infiltrate the new government with hand picked “Civil Society" leaders.

Link: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26079957

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was caught red-handed in a leaked phone conversation, discussing how they were manipulating who would become the next Ukrainian Prime Minister. And — surprise surprise — their man ended up getting the job.

But even though they'd been publicly outed, manipulating the affairs of a sovereign nation, they didn't stop ... they doubled down.

We already know that the State Department, and the Obama Administration as a whole, were working to protect a George Soros funded NGO called the Anti-Corruption Action Center. Soros and the Obama Admin were specifically using them to target Ukraine's criminal justice system. But their coordination didn't stop there. Newly released emails, obtained by Freedom of Information Act requests, shows near weekly communication between Nuland and Soros.

Link: https://www.scribd.com/document/421081817/SorosNul... (See last line in paragraph on first email at bottom.)

This email chain from June 1st 2016 shows Soros setting up a call with Nuland for one of their scheduled “updates."

Link: https://www.scribd.com/document/421081036/SorosNul...

This next email chain just one week later, initiated by Soros' organization, details how the State Department and Soros were actively working together on projects relating to Ukraine's criminal justice system.

Do you recognize any of these names? Wait ... is that the whistleblower? Crazy ... it's almost like this guy had his hands into EVERYTHING. The State Department, the NSC, CIA, DNC operatives, Joe Biden, and now George Soros. This is the REAL reason why Adam Schiff and the Democrats are so scared of naming the whistleblower. There's no way they want him testifying in an open forum, and they'll do everything in their power to make sure it doesn't happen.

What I'm about to show you is absolutely insane. This is the final piece that shows you the full extent of how embedded the State Department and George Soros were in the Ukrainian Government. This right here is how they sealed the deal on the theft of an entire country.

Link: https://www.scribd.com/document/421078499/Soros-Uk...

This is a leaked document that was actually written by George Soros personally, entitled: "Comprehensive Strategy For The New Ukraine"

In this paper, Soros identifies the institutions that need to either be set up or targeted.

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau needed to be established.

They got this done right from the beginning. It's also relevant to point out that this relationship bore fruit for the Obama Administration after they pressured the Bureau to investigate Manafort. They later hit a home run when they illegally released information implicating Manafort in the “Black Ledger," and that kicked the Russia Investigation into overdrive. And why did I say “illegally" released the information? Because a Ukrainian court convicted the head of the Anti-Corruption Bureau for doing this, and interfering in the U.S. 2016 election.

Isn't it interesting that the establishment of the Bureau was all part of Soros' plan who was coordinating DIRECTLY with the Obama Administration. And it was the head of this very organization that was caught on tape bragging how he worked to discredit Trump on behalf of Hillary Clinton. By the way ... convicted in a court of law for interfering in the U.S. election.

Judiciary Reform, including the appointment of a new High Council of justice.

Rewrite the Constitution.

That's game, set and match. Control those three areas, along with an ally in the Presidency — which they had — and the country was now THEIRS.

But Soros had a problem. As he notes, the newly elected Parliament (the rada) was slowing down his master plan by having the audacity of insisting on that pesky little thing called “transparency." But, not to worry, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

(See end of page 3 and 4.)

Soros notes that after a year of preparation, all the pieces were finally in place for quote “radical reform." His plan called for the creation of the National Reform Council that would bring together the president's administration, the cabinet of ministers, Parliament and — get this — civil society. Which basically means the government — ALL OF IT — would be linked directly to HIM.

And this shows the insane hypocrisy of Soros and all these other organizations, supported by the State Department and Obama Administration, that claim to be spreading Democracy. The NSC had the power to completely bypass Parliament. It was designed to fast track “radical reform" by completely subverting the will of the people. That doesn't sound very Democracy-ish.

(See page 4 paragraph 5.)

Now here's the best part. If you wanna know who REALLY pulls the strings in what had now become the most powerful entity in the “New Ukraine", all you have to do is read paragraph 5 on page 4.

The sole financer for the National Reform Council was the International Renaissance Foundation. Also known as, the Ukrainian branch of the George Soros Foundation. Oh but never mind, it's ok. Soros points out that a Ukrainian department would later take over the funding for the Reform Council… so there's that. The “Project Management Office" would eventually fill Soros' funding role, and lead the charge on implementing reform projects. But where would THEY get their funding?

(See page 4 paragraph 5, particularly “International Renaissance Foundation" and “will be one of the main supporters of the PMO.")

Oh ... George Soros.

(See page 6.)

And he was standing by with one billion of his own money to invest in various Ukrainian businesses. Because why settle with just bending a country to your Leftist policies when you can also make billions to boot? Oh, but he wants to make it clear that he's going to reinvest all of that money into his Civil Society programs. Obama was right: sometimes you have enough money. Soros doesn't want more money. If I can quote Alec Ross: he wants more POWER.

It's really hard to grasp the concept that someone could just start revolutions, collapse countries — as Soros has. He's considered a criminal in many countries in Asia for what he's done. But this is what he's about. As I reminded you in his own words, this is fun for him.

Ukraine became the crown jewel for the now “institutionalized" U.S. Deep State and their like minded partners such as George Soros. And we might not have ever truly known the full extent of how bad it has become if not for that July 25th phone call between Trump and Zelesnky. Hydra mobilized, and they revealed themselves. But Ukraine is just the tip of the iceberg.

When Clinton's Civil Society 2.0 first came to Ukraine, consider the state of the world at the time.

The revolutions going on in the Middle East that he's talking about were more commonly known as ... The Arab Spring. At this point in time, November 2011, revolutions had broken out in Tunisia, Oman, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Libya and Morocco. TWO regimes — Egypt and Libya — had already fully collapsed.

Now for parts of the Arab Spring, the Obama Administration was much more overt in their participation. Remember this from Hillary Clinton?

Everytime I hear that, I think of the video of the barely alive Gadaffi.

Not a good guy. But can you imagine being responsbile for that and laughing about it? Its almost as if this is “fun" for those involved. Clinton, the State Department ... who do they answer to? Certainly not you.

Libya still hasn't recovered, and would eventually become the country with the largest ISIS presence outside Syria. Libya and Syria are absolute dumpster fires, and Alec Ross' “shop" within the State Department were at ground zero right from the beginning.

They were training NGOs and rebels in both countries, and actually providing communications technology to enable them to coordinate.

This was going down WHILE the Arab Spring was in full swing, but the meddling began long BEFORE.

Link: https://2009-2017.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2009/nov/1...

Civil Society 2.0 began in November 2009, and it's no coincidence where they chose to kick it off… North Africa.

And remember what this program is intended for… what it's designed to nurture: revolution and regime change. As they did in Ukraine, they identify “Civil Society" groups, train them, fund them and show them how to mobilize.

Just a few months later, the White House initiated secret meetings with officials from the State Department and CIA. The meetings were led by Dennis Ross, the senior advisor on the Middle East; Samantha Power, from the National Security Council; and Gayle Smith, the director for global development.

Link: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/17/world/middleeas...

They developed an 18 page classified report which the Obama Administration dubbed Presidential Study Directive 11.

Link: https://fas.org/irp/offdocs/psd/index.html

Now, the Obama Admin issued 11 Study Directives in total, and the vast majority have been declassified. But all we know about PSD 11 is that it had to do with quote: “political reform in the Middle East and North Africa."

An official with knowledge of the classified report told this to the New York Times:

"Whether it was Yemen or other countries in the region, you saw a set of trends" — a big youth population, threadbare education systems, stagnant economies and NEW SOCIAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES LIKE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER — that was a "real prescription for trouble."

Link: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/17/world/middleeas...

Could I just ask: Is this why Facebook, Twitter and Google have hired so many democrats specifically form HC's State Department office? Are they an expansion of the SD? You do know that the original seed money for google came form the CIA. What had the gov asked for in return. By the way ... that's a question, not a theory. And not a conspiracy fact as of yet.

Why is this report still classified? I'll just throw this out there ... maybe because there was an office in the State Department that was traveling the world training these “big youth populations" in revolution and regime change, in the months BEFORE the Arab Spring began?

Civil Society 2.0 arrived in the Middle East and North Africa in November 2009. Presidential Study Directive 11 occurred in August 2010. The Arab Spring kicked off just FOUR MONTHS LATER.

I want to make a personal plea to President Trump. If you want to know how institutionalized Hydra is, and why they're coning after you so hard you might want to declassify directive 11. If you want to see how deep the Ukrainian rabbit whole REALLY goes ... declassify PSD 11. You have the power to do it. I have a feeling that the strategy they used to take over Ukraine is probably described IN DETAIL in PSD 11.

Everything that was happening in Ukraine, was being done during the Arab Spring. Civil Society 2.0 had been on the ground a full year before the Arab Spring kicked off.

U.S. dollars then began to flow to the protestors on the streets. They did this through funding from Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy.

Remember that State Department meeting in 2008 a few months after Obama was elected? The Egyptian activists that brought down their countries regime ... were at that conference. They were:

Taught to use social networking and mobile technologies to promote democracy.

Link: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/15/world/15aid.html

This is a leaked State Department diplomatic cable where they confirm the participation of the Egyptian activists at the 2008 meeting in New York.

Link: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaa...

It also reveals that the U.S. Embassy in Egypt was putting pressure on the Egyptian government in support of the street protestors.

And, just as in Ukraine, the Egyptian Regime buckled under the weight of these new tech savvy global community organizers.

All three stages that would later be used in Ukraine, were pulled off to perfection in toppling the regime in Egypt. But what about stage 4?

Infiltrating the criminal justice system was harder in Egypt because the military had an iron grasp on the government. So how did they plan on getting around that? Exactly what George Soros proposed in Ukraine ... just rewrite the Constitution.

Link: https://af.reuters.com/article/topNews/idAFJOE71F0...

This Reuters article, written right after the regime fell, describes who was involved in rewriting Egypt's Constitution. Look who was in charge:

“CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS had already produced several drafts and a new constitution could be ready in a month."

The main group in charge was the Arabic Network for Human Rights. You'll never guess who funds them.

Link: http://www.anhri.net/en/reports/net2004/thank.shtml (Specifically, “HRINFO gratefully acknowledges the Open Society Institute (OSI) for its financial support.")

And while Soros funded NGOs went to work rewriting the Constitution, he then moved to get his guys into top level positions within the government.

Link: https://www.npr.org/2011/01/31/133307779/could-egy...

Mohammed ElBaradei emerged out of nowhere as the de facto leader of the “revolution." He's also a trustee of an organization called the International Crisis Group.

Link: https://www.crisisgroup.org/

They're a ThinkTank that claims to be:

Working to prevent wars and shape policies that will build a more peaceful world.

They're also founded AND FUNDED by George Soros.

Everything was in place for a Ukraine level theft of a country, but the Egyptian military stepped in and put a stop to it.

What began 10 years ago in North Africa and the Middle East, and then later perfected in Ukraine in 2014 ... still goes on to this very day. We have a new president, a new administration, new lawmakers in Congress ... but Hydra marches on.

But to be fair, you could say that they're only trying to foment revolution in bad countries. Ok, but thats not the case.

A few months after Civil Society 2.0 began in Ukraine, a near identical project popped up in Macedonia.

Link: https://www.usaid.gov/macedonia/fact-sheets/civil-...

In February 2012, the U.S. Government gave George Soros nearly $5 million to carry out a quote “Civil Society Program." According to the financial disclosure, Soros was involved in training and funding Macedonians on freedom of association, youth policies, citizen initiatives, persuasive argumentation and use of new media. So, in other words, they wanted a Macedonian Spring.

The money flowed through the State Department and was facilitated by U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia Jess Baily. Now, at this point, this isn't surprising coming from the Obama Administration, but after Trump was elected in 2016 an additional $9.5 million was allocated to keep the operation going.

Judicial Watch has done some digging on this, and they've interviewed several Macedonian officials to find out what the State Department and Soros are up to. See if this sounds familiar:

The groups organize youth movements, create influential media outlets and organize violent protests to undermine the institutions and policies implemented by the government. One of the Soros' groups funded the translation and publication of Saul Alinsky's “Rules for Radicals" into Macedonian.

Link: https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicle...

I wonder ... what did Hydra have against the Macedonian Government at the time? Could it be because they had one of the more conservative governments in all of Europe? They had the lowest flat tax on the continent, close ties with Israel and were strongly pro-life. They had also recently built a border fence to try and deal with the immigration crisis.

The State Department was attacking this government, through George Soros, with YOUR money.

Link: https://www.scribd.com/document/338904121/Senator-...

It prompted Mike Lee to write an official letter to Ambassador Baily, asking him what the heck was going on. This wasn't the official policy of the U.S. Government, this was someone else's SHADOW policy.

Link: https://www.newsweek.com/crisis-macedonia-protests...

And, as it has happened time and time again since this all began, violence, riots and chaos were the consequences of that shadow policy.

The U.S. Ambassador remained in Macedonia up until a few months ago. There was never any explanation as to why he left. There's no entry on the official embassy website. He just suddenly ... wasn't there anymore. I talked to Mike Lee before this broadcast. He told me that he received what the State Department might classify as answers. But Mike says that his questions were NEVER satisfactorily answered.

“Spontaneous, indigenous popular uprisings" continue to break out TO THIS DAY, and the fingerprints of Civil Society 2.0 and George Soros are all over it. They're following their 4 part plan country by country.

I challenge you —everywhere the violence is erupting — try and find one that isn't related to the programs, groups and people that I've shown you here.

Link: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/20/world/americas/...

Violence in Chile continues to boil over. Chile ... the one country in South America that has actually seen economic growth by adhering to open and free markets, is now spiraling out of control. More than 15 people have died. And you know what sparked all the chaos? It wasn't self immolation like the Arab Spring. No ... “Civil Society" groups hit the streets in Chile due to a three cent cost in public transportation. THREE PENNIES.

Chile's free market government has been a target of Hydra for a long time.

Link: https://2009-2017.state.gov/statecraft/cs20/index.htm

Civil Society 2.0 began setting up TechCamps in Chile in November 2010. From the press release:

Goals of the program include increasing regional civil society organizations' digital literacy, sharing information, building networks and matchmaking like-minded individuals to organizations.

It always reads the same, and regime change and chaos in the streets always follows. And those “like minded organizations and individuals" included people like this woman (Javiera Lopez).

Link: https://twitter.com/japalola?lang=en

She's one of the lead organizers out in the streets. She's also the National Political Counselor for a far-left Socialist political party called Democratic Revolution. Their top demands, as seen in this tweet, is to force the rewriting of the Chilean Constitution:

Hmm, where have we seen that before? The State Department and Soros, the Hydra that is called Civil Society 2.0.

A year after Civil Society 2.0 began training activists in Chile, Democratic Revolution formed to organize the quote “activities of the student movement." Today, they're leading the charge in the same way Egyptian activists overthrew the Mubarak regime. But none of it would have been possible without the financing of George Soros and his Open Society Foundation.

Link: https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/chile...

Soros was there from the beginning and continued funding through, AT LEAST, 2015. Now they're poised to overthrow one of the most free market economies in South America.

They're taking down country by country, one at a time. The strategies of progressive leaders in the past of establishing large governing bodies such as the League of Nations or the UN, and bending continents under their ideological boots is largely over. Why start from the top, when you can conquer fragile regimes one by one?

And if you think this is happening purely beyond our own borders ... I've got some REALLY bad news for you. Countries like Ukraine, Macedonia, Egypt, Yemen and even Chile are much easier to heat up, destabilize and then cast into your image. You can place allies in the criminal justice system, and do deals with their leaders to fast track legislation. You can't really do that here.

However, is it a coincidence that leftists are being trained here in the U.S. by Soros groups? That our DOJ, FBI CIA, all of it has been so badly damaged in reputation? That corruption is at a level I've never seen in our country before? And our Constitution is constantly discredited and no one really knows it anymore. How far-fetched is it to believe that in the next 5 years you could get America to call for an ACB — some outside force that would rat our corruption? How hard is it to believe that protesters —leaderless organizations — could rise up to create instability and demand that a few changes to be made to our constitution?

Make no mistake, Hydra is active here in the United States. They're skipping the federal government and going state by state, county by county ... city by city. The same tactics they've been employing all over the world have come, and are coming, to main street USA. We are currently in contact with multiple state officials who have been investigating the infiltration of Soros in key positions. It is well organized and well financed and way beyond anything you might have heard before.

You're likely to see a barrage of people on left instantly labeling this entire program a conspiracy THEORY. We're already seeing that in the impeachment proceedings. In her testimony, Fiona Hill said the words conspiracy theory at least twice, and at one point specifically mentions George Soros. But I'll challenge every single one of the naysayers: try and refute any single one of the FACTS I'm about to show you. Just try. I'll bring you on the show and we can talk about, but you better bring facts because I'll be holding all of mine.

And why is it so taboo to call out Soros' involvement in the Ukraine scandal? Why is Soros "the name that shall not be named"? What are they so afraid of? I've been highlighting FOR YEARS how he plays with entire countries. He's already brought several of those countries down.

Crashing economies and bringing countries to their knees is fun for him, but the question has always been: how does he do it, and — possibly more important — are nation states colluding with him to pull it off?

Ever since Mia Love lost her seat to Ben McAdams in Utah's 4th congressional district, Republicans have been wondering who would be the person to step-up and take back the seat.

I bet you nobody saw this guy coming. And that's just the way he likes it.

When I got the call from a friend of mine who was tapped to be Burgess Owens Communications director, I was excited and couldn't wait to visit with him. Owens hadn't even announced yet and as a long-time listener of Glenn, I've heard Burgess in his many interviews and thought I knew what I was in for. But as I made the winding drive up the mountain at sunset over the south end of Salt Lake valley, there was one thought that wouldn't get out of my head — why would he want to get into politics?

I've heard many answers to this question and rarely do I believe their canned responses, but his answer rang true to me.

"I've never thought about it. It's been brought up a few times over the years but it never crossed my mind. I'd never seen politics as the answer," Owens said. "I started a nonprofit called Second Chance 4 Youth and the mission is to help kids stay out of the juvenile system. If we don't win back the house, keep the senate and the presidency, those kids don't have a ghost of a chance to make it. Because the leftists will continue the process to do what they've done in the past."

Over the course of our conversation, he was very passionate about the black community but his call to serve isn't about race or one community over the other.

It's the marxists and socialists that have destroyed my community and they're now trying to do the same thing to our country.

"This isn't a black or white issue, it's ideology. It's the marxists and socialists that have destroyed my community and they're now trying to do the same thing to our country," Owens said.

"If we don't keep power away from these leftists, it doesn't matter what I'm doing with these kids, it's just a pebble in a big ocean. But if I'm able to be in a position to not only empower our party, but empower our president who is actually one of the best friends the black community has ever had, hopefully I can be a part of making lasting change for these kids."

I've had the opportunity to interview quite a few politicians over the years and I can count on one hand the number I can stand and the number drops off greatly when I get to the ones I feel like I can actually trust. But this message strikes deep at the core of what the real problem facing our nation and his solutions are simple and make sense.

It is a 4 pronged approach: Head, heart, hands and home. Education, God, industry and family.

"It's simple, something we can teach our kids without debate. Every policy will be tied to this message. You take those things away and you get what have now. No hope, no education, no dreaming, anger and no belief in God."

Growing up in the deep south in the 50's and 60's, there was chaos all around. It was the height of Jim Crow laws and integration of the school systems and Burgess lived the real life scenario portrayed in Remember the Titans as one of four black football players on his team. But despite the hate and bigotry surrounding him, his black community was strong, patriotic and loved the country. He believes the four tenants listed above are the foundation that made that possible and they are what can bring our country back from the brink.

The only thing that rivaled his passion for our country and the solutions to fix it, was his unbridled support for President Trump. Many believe Mia Love lost her seat because of her spat with the President, but his support is no political stunt. He flat out loves the guy — warts and all.

"Anyone who has had a family or heritage that's gone through unfairness or persecution where you've seen the type of carnage we have in the black community then you have somebody come on board and for the first time in the history say this is what I'm going to do to resolve the misery and issues in the black community and then does it — personally, I don't care how he speaks," Owens said.

It comes to a point where we have to decide if our feelings are more important or the lives of other people.

"If people are living their lives with hope again, with vision, we should all be on board with that. It comes to a point where we have to decide if our feelings are more important or the lives of other people. President Trump has been the greatest friend the black community has ever had, President Obama was the worst. The black guy who was articulate and spoke so well, but he brought so much misery to our race. Who would I choose, someone of my same race who is terrible or someone of another race but gets results? I'm all about results. I don't put any distance between myself and President Trump."

As the conversation moved along, I had to ask Glenn's favorite question — what's the state of his soul?

"As I think about my approach as candidate and getting into politics, it has never been attractive to me, the power and prestige, all the stuff that goes along with it," Owens said.

I've heard that one before too. But it's what he said next that made me believe him.

"As a football player, I know what it is to be the center of attention and I also know how pride steps in, because I've experienced it. I'm at a point in my life now, where there are three things that are most important: God, country and family. If it's not embracing those, I don't have time for it now. The family unit has been put into place by divine law. Heavenly Father has a plan for the family, he put it in place so we can be happy and produce and nothing we do can change that," Owens said.

He also said "now is not the time to be squeamish about God" and putting Him first is the "key to becoming who we were meant to be." It was his closing statement that should speak to the souls of patriotic Americans of any creed or color: "When America wakes up, we win."

Have you had enough winning yet?

A whale in a raincoat turns to a starfish.

“Why do you need a raincoat when we're surrounded by water?" asks the starfish.

The whale laughs, “Water? I don't see any water."

We are the starfish in this situation. There's something suspicious happening. We can sense it. But it's often hard to prove. The media tells us that we're delusional. That all this Ukraine business is a conspiracy theory.

Only it's not.

And we have proof.

Something wasn't right. Something smelled fishy.

I was talking about Biden's shady connection to Ukraine months before anyone else. (Perhaps you watched our candidate profile on Joe Biden from April of this year.)

My team and I knew, even then, that something wasn't right. Something smelled fishy.

Then we discovered the truth. We couldn't believe it. The evidence kept piling on. And, thanks to cavalier journalists like John Solomon at the Hill, many of the documents and recordings and videos rose to the surface.

Yet, for the most part, the media ignored this glaring story, a story full of shady dealings and deep corruption, corruption that went all the way to the Oval Office. So why weren't the media leaping to cover it? Why were journalists so focused on Biden's creepy issues with personal space, and not the unexplained loss of $1.3 billion? That's roughly the GDP of Gambia.

amp only placement

We made it our mission to expose the truth.

When the news broke about the Trump impeachment, we were ready. Here I am in September, explaining the Ukraine scandal:

The misdeeds that took place with Ukraine are far more serious than one of Trump's phone calls. This runs deep.

If there's any semblance of justice left, this scandal will go down as the Watergate of our time. Sort of. Because, despite what the media insists, the guilty parties are all attached to the Obama Administration.

We refuse to stand by and remain silent.

We've spent many days and nights working on this, on bringing you the truth. And we've tried to make it as approachable as possible. Because it's enough to make your head spin.

Our months of grueling research paid off. People loved our special, Ukraine: The Democrats' Russia.

It exploded. Went viral. For that week, it was all over social media. People were talking about it.

"We punish a man for his ignorance if he is thought to be responsible for his ignorance."

The special is there for you. But, as I said in the special, the important part of this whole debacle is education. In the words of Aristotle, “We punish a man for his ignorance if he is thought to be responsible for his ignorance."

We are all responsible for our ignorance. Anymore, with all the information in the world available to us at all times, there is no excuse.

I get it. All of this Ukraine business is daunting and complex. All the more reason to understand its intricacies.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to see the sequence of events that led up to Trump's phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. What better way than to give you an interactive chalkboard?

Explore the timeline at your own pace. The truth is in your hands. You have all the power now.

FEB 2014

New President in Ukraine

It all began with the appointment of a new President in Ukraine. Petro Porochenko.

The pro-Russian regime in Ukraine officially collapsed as President Yanukovych was forced to flee to Russia. After three months of demonstrations, the protesters seized control of Kiev, and new elections for the brand new government were set up for just a few months later.

This would lay the foundation for systematic corruption by the Democrats.


Within a couple years, the Obama Administration will become the biggest advocate for the new regime in Ukraine, and high-level Democrat political influencers will take root in Ukraine. This is just a few of the many:

  • Greg Craig: former Obama White House counsel
  • Tad Devine: Chief Strategist for Bernie Sanders
  • Tony Podesta: Brother to John Podesta
  • Mark Penn: Chief Strategist for Hillary Clinton
  • John Alazone: Obama campaign pollster
  • Joel Benenson: the Obama campaign LEAD pollster

An overwhelming show of force in a country with crucial ties to one of our enemies. But it evolved into so much more than that.

Here's Obama meeting with Porochenko later that year:

MAR 2014

Obama Makes Biden Point-man in Ukraine

Then-President Obama wanted to prove his devotion to Ukraine. So he appointed then-Vice President Joe Biden to be the new point-man in the country.

Here's what author Peter Schweizer had to say about this decision:

Biden Flies to Ukraine, Hunter Tags Along

As I pointed out in our Candidate profile on Biden, April 2014 was a crucial moment in the Ukraine scandal.

In April 2014, roughly a month after the Russian invasion, Devon Archer visited Joe Biden at the White House. Remember, Archer is one of Hunter Biden's two partners in Rosemont Seneca. We don't know what the meeting was about — maybe they were just exchanging cookie recipes. But five days later, Joe Biden landed in Kiev for high-level meetings with Ukrainian government officials.

He brought with him specific plans for a program to assist the Ukrainian natural gas industry, as well as details of over $1 billion in U.S. assistance and loans. Part of the energy portion of the program reads:

U.S. technical experts will ... help Ukraine develop a public-private investment initiative to increase conventional gas production from existing fields to boost domestic energy supply.

MAY 2014

Hunter Biden, Devon Archer Become Burisma Board Members

The day after Biden arrived in Ukraine, Devon Archer was named to the board of Burisma, the gas company run by Kolomoisky, the oligarch who was banned from entering the U.S.

In 2016, Foreign Policy magazine reported:

No one in the U.S. government has wielded more influence over Ukraine than Vice President Joe Biden.

Three weeks later, Hunter Biden also joined Burisma's board.

And he's still on the board. Burisma announced these appointments publicly. U.S. media reported on it. Check out these headlines:

This wasn't a secret. But no one really noticed or cared, because hey — this was the Obama White House.

This was a pattern with Biden. Whether it was meetings with foreign leaders in Washington, or traveling to foreign capitals, business opportunities and deals magically materialized for Hunter Biden's company. Need proof? Just take a glance at this interview with Joe and Hunter Biden in Popular Mechanics.

U.S. Aid to Ukraine Increases

The Obama Administration ratcheted up their monetary support of Ukraine. U.S. aid to Ukraine included:

  • $1 billion sovereign loan guarantee
  • $320 million in general assistance
  • $118 million in equipment and training for their security forces
  • $20 million for law enforcement reform
  • And a fleet of advisors in banking, politics, energy, media, and human rights.

Obama Admin. Mandates Setup of NACB

In April 2015, the Obama Administration helped set up — actually they mandated it through the IMF — the establishment of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau, whose purpose was to seek out and eradicate government corruption.

A man named Artem Sytnyk was tapped to be the first Director of the Bureau.

The following month, George Soros released the following strategy memo for dealing with Ukraine.

A year later, the Anti-Corruption Bureau signed an official Memorandum of Understanding with the FBI, giving the Obama Administration a direct line into whatever dark secrets the Ukrainians might dig up.

Owner of Burisma Loses $1.8 Billion from the U.S.

What's the most money you ever lost? And I mean lost. Not misplaced. Or spent. Or were swindled out of. Or had picket-pocketed. I mean lost. You had the money and it vanished.

For most of us, the answer is probably under $100. Maybe you lost a $20 bill at the State Fair.

I'm going to take a guess and say that absolutely none of you have lost a billion dollars.

A billion. The number one followed by 9 zeros. 1,000,000,000. The total value of Apple, the most valuable brand in the world.

It seems that putting a Ukrainian oligarch in charge of $1.8 billion isn't a great idea.

Well, in March 2016, this is exactly what happened. Oh, and it wasn't one billion dollars. Actually, it was $1.8 billion. I forgot about that extra $800 million.

Lesson of the story: It seems that putting a Ukrainian oligarch in charge of $1.8 billion isn't a great idea. An oligarch named Ihor Kolomoisky, head of Burisma — the largest private natural gas company in Ukraine.

As pointed out in an article for Ukranian newspaper Kyiv Post:

Court filings reveal that Kolomoisky was divvying up and fighting over the rusting U.S. steel mills with other Ukrainian oligarchs — in the same way that they fought over Ukraine's Soviet-built industrial plants in the 1990s and 2000s. One deal, involving Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, bled into the sale of a Warren, Ohio steel mill.

JUN 2015

Trump Announces Presidential Run

I can picture it so clearly. Trump descending the golden escalator as “Keep Rockin' in the Free World" played loudly in the background.

At the time, most people shrugged Trump off and focused on other candidates. He would prove to be a far more formidable opponent than anyone expected.

LATE 2015

Research: Alexandra Chalupa

Donald Trump was already surging in the polls. Still not a word about the Russia meddling. There was nothing out on Manafort yet. There was no Steele Dossier. George Papadapolous wasn't on the campaign yet. There was no FISA request for Carter Page.

Yet, an American lawyer named Alexandra Chalupa — the daughter of Ukrainian immigrants — began doing opposition research on Trump. And her employer had a lot of influence in Ukraine. Her employer? None other than the Democrat National Committee.

The DNC paid her over seventy-one thousand dollars for her work during the 2016 election alone, but her work with the DNC goes all the way back to 2004.

In January 2016, Chalupa approached an official at the DNC and told them, regarding Trump's campaign:

I felt there was a Russia connection.

Chalupa concentrated most of her research on Paul Manafort and his work with the — now exiled — President of Ukraine (Yanukovich). Interestingly enough, all of her energy was focused on Manafort and NOT on his partners in helping get the Russian backed Yanukovych re-elected. Those partners were Tony Podesta and Tad Devine. I guess the fact that both Podesta and Devine were Democrats made everything ok ... just not for Manafort.

The same month Chalupa was telling the DNC that there was a Russia connection between Manafort and Trump, the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian prosecutors to the White House.

Here's a hacked DNC email, that was released on Wikileaks, between Chalupa and the former DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda. In that email, Chalupa checks in, reporting that she will speak at the Library of Congress specifically about Manafort.

Biden Replaces Shokin with Lutsenko

During a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations, Vice President Joe Biden made his now infamous statement about his role in getting Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin fired, bragging that he had withheld $1 billion in loan guarantees for Ukraine.

"I looked at them and said: 'I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time," he said.

At the time, Shokin was investigating a Ukrainian company that Biden's son was involved with. Biden has claimed that what he did was based purely on Shokin's corrupt conduct, and nothing to do with his son's business dealings.

Here's a sworn statement of from Shokin:

This intimidation by the Obama administration was also used against Shokin's succesor, Yuriy Lutsenko. Here's his statement to the Hill detailing corruption from Obama-appointed Marie Yovanovitch to U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine:

Here's the kicker:

The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, a natural gas firm active in Ukraine, and Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board of Directors. I assume Burisma, which was connected with gas extraction, had the support of the Vice President Joe Biden because his son was on the Board of Directors.

Shokin detailed Obama's systematic control of Ukraine, noting that Obama was “telling the heads of the Ukraine law-enforcement system how to investigate and whom to investigate."

Shokin had another unforgivable sin on his record. He had launched an investigation on the actions of an NGO called the Anti Corruption Action Centre.

Shokin alleged that the NGO might have improperly diverted, or even embezzled, millions of dollars. So why would this be an unforgivable sin to Obama and Biden?

See for yourself (scroll down to the finances section of their website and mouse over 2016 to see the funders).

If you look at the top two financiers for that year, the top two are the International Renaissance Foundation and the U.S. Government. The International Renaissance Foundation is yet another group headed by ... George Soros.

Bank Loses $2.2M and $1.8B in IMF Loans

James Stafford, a journalist who covers the energy industry wrote:

Burisma fails to pass the most basic due diligence check. Its registration documents are impossible to run down. It publishes no asset information or financial records, nor does it release any audited financial statements. The complete lack of transparency means that anyone interested — including potential investors — must rely solely on press releases about Burisma's future plans and intentions.

Here's part one of my chalkboard exposé on the underhanded deals that took place in Ukraine.

After Hunter Biden joined the Burisma board, the company's owner, Kolomoisky was suddenly taken off the U.S.' entry-ban list. Kolomoisky's ban wasn't the only thing that disappeared. Remember that $1.8 billion loan the U.S. promised to Ukraine?

Most of that money flowed through PrivatBank, Ukraine's largest bank, owned by who else? Kolomoisky. $1.8 billion simply vanished.

Where did it go? A Ukrainian watchdog group traced the money by researching a series of court decisions. Basically, the billion dollars from the U.S. was laundered through Kolomoisky's network of offshore entities.

Ultimately, the Ukrainian government took control of Kolomoisky's bank, but the $1.8 billion was never recovered.

Chalupa Begins to Work Directly with Ukraine Embassy

Around the time Manafort joined the Trump campaign, Chalupa began working with embassy staff to raise the alarm bells regarding Manafort to the Ukrainian president. She said the embassy "worked directly with reporters researching Trump, Manafort and Russia to point them in the right directions."

In other words, the Ukrainian Embassy, right here in the United States, was working directly with a DNC operative to damage a Republican candidate for president to influence the U.S. election.

Chalupa and the DNC deny this, but a Ukrainian Embassy political officer who worked there at the time, stated that the Ukrainians were working with Chalupa.

They were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa.

At the end of March, 2016, the Ukranian Head of a Department of the Prosecutor General's Office met with representatives of the BlueStar Strategies. Here's a translated memo of that meeting:

APR 2016

Pillow Talk with the Ohrs

Bruce Ohr led a double life. He worked for the Department of Justice associate deputy attorney general, but he also played a part in starting the Russian meddling accusations against Trump.

As I mentioned earlier, the DNC and the Clinton Campaign hired Fusion GPS to write the Steele Dossier, which was supposed to crush Trump. Then Fusion GPS hired Bruce Ohr's wife Nellie Ohr, a Russian specialist, to “research" Donald Trump.

(Check out these reports from the FBI's investigation into Ohr.)

Trump has been pretty open about his opinion of Ohr.

MAY 2016

Isikoff Memo: Chalupa Embassy Press

Investigative journalist Michael Isikoff has been probing around this whole time, and in 2018, he compiled all his findings in his book, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump.

Within a few months, Federal authorities would use this article by Isikoff for a FISA warrant application in order to justify surveillance of Carter Page.

In late May, these State Department memos were sent, revealing contacts between George Soros' firm and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

JUN 2016

FBI & National Anti-Corruption Bureau

Remember the Ukranian National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NACB)? The supposed anti-corruption agency created with the help of Obama and the DNC. It hadn't even been in operation for a year when the FBI instituted a “Memorandum of Understanding" between the FBI and the NACB.

As noted on the NABU website:

This document establishes the parties' joint work on crimes related to international money laundering, international asset recovery, and Ukrainian high-level officials' bribery and corruption.

In the words of then the FBI Acting Deputy Assistant Director Mathew S. Moon:

If, for instance, your criminal proceeding has the accordant proceedings in the US, you [NABU] can give us the numbers of the bank accounts and it will be the reason for us to issue a notice of suspicion for a person and receive the necessary information much faster.

Another important legal proceeding that will receive very little attention is Citizens United v. The U.S. Department of State. Here is an FBI agent's affidavit in Citizens United FOIA lawsuit, including the declaration of Michael Seidel:

The FBI will play a crucial role in this whole thing. As recently as July of 2019, members of Congress were sounding the alarm about questionable activity:

JUN 2016

Obama Appoints New Ambassador

Without much ado, then-President Barack Obama appointed Marie Yovanovitch to U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine. Yovanovitch is a big supporter of Artyom Sytnik, head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.

The following State Department memos reveal that, a few weeks before Obama appointed Yovanovitch, George Soros and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland discussed Ukraine:

JUN 2016

Manafort Sentenced

In June of 2016, with the election just months away, Donald Trump fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and promoted Manafort to the position. Suddenly, Manafort was in charge of Trump's entire campaign.

Around that same time, Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power sent this email reacting to Donald Trump UN plan:

Half-a-year later, Power gave this speech about Russia:

And here she is discussion the Russia Trump speech in an email:

LATE 2016

No Visas for Ukrainian Prosecutors

The Deputy Director for Ukraine's Prosecutor General's International Cooperation Department stated that she didn't grant his delegation visas to travel to the United States. They wanted to come to deliver information to the U.S. Attorney General evidence of Ukraine's misdeeds during the 2016 election.

This evidence included:

  • Sworn statements from Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 election. (This must be whistleblowers inside the Anti-Corruption Bureau regarding the Manafort “Ledger.")
  • Contacts between Democrat figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials involved in gathering dirt on Donald Trump. (This is probably the DNC, Chalupa and the Ukraine Embassy.)
  • Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to Hunter Biden.
  • Records showing Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian officials to fire Shokin.
  • Correspondence that proves the State Department and U.S. Embassy in Ukraine interfered in criminal cases on Ukrainain soil.
  • Disbursements of as much as $7 billion that may have been misappropriated and taken out of the country.

Two other important events happened in late 2016. Obama appointed a new Ambassador in Ukraine, and the Manafort “Black Ledger" was released by Ukraine's Anti-Corruption Bureau.

But the Presidential election was in full swing. It took up all the time and space in the news. So these two crucial moments passed by mostly unseen.

A member of the Ukrainian Parliament named Leshchenko and the Anti-Corruption Bureau Director, Sytnik — who had just signed a memorandum of understanding with the FBI just a month prior — jointly released pages in the Ledger that showed illegal payments given to Paul Manafort.

Were the Ukrainians trying to influence the election? Check out this article from the Financial Times.

(If you're unable to access the article, the headline is a good summary of it: “Ukraine's leaders campaign against 'pro-Putin' Trump")

The article actually states direct quotes from the Member of Parliament (Leshchenko) that disclosed Manafort's name in the ledger:

A Trump presidency would change the pro-Ukrainian agenda in American foreign policy. For me it was important to show not only the corruption aspect, but that he is a pro-Russian candidate who can break the geopolitical balance in the world.

In other words, the Ukrainian government actively tried to sink Donald Trump's campaign for President.

NOV 2016

Trump Wins the Election

November 8, 2016. The day everything changed.

The day that shattered so many news anchors and Hillary supporters. It wasn't supposed to happen. According to the media, Trump wasn't supposed to win. But he did.

Hillary was so upset that she refused to concede.

From that moment, Democrats made up their mind. They decided that they were going to get Trump out of office however they could. No rules. Anything goes.

Within hours of Trump's win, journalists were calling for his impeachment.

He was still months away from being sworn in, barely into his first day in his Presidential legacy, and the left wanted him out.

A Change.org petition to Congress titled “ Impeach Donald J. Trump" raised nearly $500,000.

Down the line, a former British intelligence Officer will compile a dossier — a 35-page compilation of 16 reports supposedly offering evidence of conspiracy between the Trump Campaign and the Russian government — an accusation that will haunt Trump for years. But it ultimately proved to be a dud.

Most importantly, it was the DNC and the Clinton Campaign that contracted Steele to write the dossier.

Steele leaked the dossier to journalist Michael Isikoff, who had been working with DNC-operative Alexandra Chalupa. Isikoff wrote an article for Yahoo News detailing parts of the Steele Dossier.

Note that the email was sent in May 2016, exactly one month after the DNC hired Fusion GPS to work on the dossier.

The last line of this email is significant:

... there is a big Trump component you and Lauren need to be aware of that will hit in next few weeks and something I'm working on you should be aware of.

The FBI used the leak as corroborating evidence to justify a FISA warrant for Carter Page.

Here is the FBI Human Source Validation Report on Christopher Steele:

JUL 2017

First Mention of Ukraine by White House

Then-Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders first mentioned Democrat corruption in Ukraine during an off-camera briefing on July 12, 2017, alleging that the DNC had colluded with the Ukrainian Government and targeted people within the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Sanders said:

I think if there's been any evidence of collusion in 2016 that's come out at all or been discussed that's actually happened, it would be between the DNC and the Ukrainian government. I don't often quote the New York Times, but even one of their reporters tweeted earlier today that — why this example provides evidence of collusion: "Cooperation was between DNC officials and officials from the Ukrainian government, not just some associate."

Ukrainian actions to coordinate with the DNC was actually successful, unlike anything shown by Don Jr.'s emails. Information passed to the DNC from the Ukrainian government directly targeted members of the Trump campaign in an attempt to undermine it. And that was just Ukraine. The other big news was the foreign intelligence dossier that the President's political opponents funded and disseminated widely, and was based on discredited opposition research from foreign intelligence sources. The only collusion I've seen, and that's certainly been proven, would be between those people.

Then, President Trump mentioned Ukraine on Twitter:

Later that month, Senator Chuck Grassley wrote a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, outlining shady activity among the Ukrainians, the DNC, and Alexandra Chalupa.

Nothing ever came of it.

OCT 2017

Two Ukrainians Found Guilty, Secret Audio Released

Ukraninan People's Deputy Borislav Rosenblatt filed a claim charging both Leshchenko and Sytnik with interfering in the U.S. election by publicly disclosing the information on Manafort. The Ukrainian court agreed. After Leshchenko appealed the decision, Rosenblatt leaked the audio recording.

In April of 2019, former Prosecutor General Lutsenko gave an interview with the Ukrainian media. In that interview he makes a stunning comment:

I don't know how, but the Americans got an audio recording of Mr. Sytnik's conversation: he is resting with his family and friends and discussing how he would like to help Hillary.

Sytnik is the Director of the Bureau that the Obama Administration mandated they set up. He then made public information directly to influence the U.S. election.

Here's that audio:

We'd rushed around looking for a Ukrainian translator. It was pure chaos here at the studios. But we knew it was important. Eventually, we got it. And we were absolutely floored. We had our smoking gun.

KOLYA: Did they … those Russians … help him? Your people?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: I think they did.

KOLYA: Oh, did they?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: Yep. I helped him, too. Not him, but Hilary. I helped her.

KOLYA: Yeah, right. Then her position tottered, right.

ARTYOM SYTNYK: Well, this is how they write about it. Right.

IVAN: Hilary's humanitarian aid [INDISCERNIBLE] America?

KOLYA: Well, I am about … the commentaries. At that time, we were not in [INDISCERNIBLE].

IVAN: No, there it was …

ARTYOM SYTNYK: Trump … His purely inner problem … issue… They dominate over the external matters. While Hilary … she is – how shall I put it? She belongs to the cohort of politicians who comprise the hegemony in the US. Both in the US and in the entire world. Right. For us, it is …sort of … better. For the Americans … what Trump is doing is better for them.

KOLYA: Well, we have lots of those American experts here now... [INDISCERNIBLE].

ARTYOM SYTNYK: A woman. Masha.

KOLYA: How do you find her?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: They don't keep any different people.

KOLYA: They - who?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: As our Ambassador in Germany once told me… He said: in order to get to the Ambassador's post to a foreign country in Germany – it seems easier to win the Noble Prize, than to get the position of Ambassador.

ARTYOM SYTNYK: There is a very tough selection process there. Unlike in our country. See, we sent Lytvyn to … so to say… Now the entire borer is open. We sent him to the position of the Ambassador. And then he disappeared there.

KOLYA: Well, not quite so… It was done via the system, of course…

IVAN: Come on, what are you talking about?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: Well, there, you see. Why Hilary lost the elections? I was in charge of investigation of their “black accounting" records.

ARTYOM SYTNYK: We made the Manafort's data available to general public.

KOLYA: So what?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: He was imprisoned. Manafort then was the head of the Supreme Headquarter of Trump. Right. Then he was dismissed, too. Including due to the “black accounting". After that, he was sentenced to 80 years of imprisonment term. How about Trump? He did not give a shit. They have their system working there, and it works smoothly.

KOLYA: Everybody works smoothly there.

ARTYOM SYTNYK: And when they carried out the elections. A week before the elections, FBI reopened the investigation in respect of Hilary. So her rating dropped for 7%, and that is why Trump managed to win the elections at a pinch. I am still unable to understand why he is fighting with FBI? They try to catch him on the hand. If it were not the FBI, he would not have won the elections. They torpedoed Hilary's rating for 7 %.

KOLYA: I say... Is FBI - ФБР?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: Yes. Of course, it is a solid structure there.

KOLYA: The solid one, right?

ARTYOM SYTNYK: You bet! A real stronghold!

Mueller Report Finds Nothing

The Mueller Report. I'm sure you remember exactly where you were the day it was released.

In December of 2016, exactly a month after Trump was elected President, academic Joseph Mifsud, with links to Trump advisor George Papadopoulos, sent this:

Here's an email from Mifsud to Papadopoulos:

And another, from February 2017, to the FBI:

Mifsud regularly attended meetings of the Valdai Discussion Club, which often included Russian President Vladimir Putin. Here's Mifsud's deposition testimony on Vladimir Putin:

Several months later, in June, Mueller charged Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian-Ukrainian political operative, with alleged ties to Russian Intelligence and a Manafort business partner, with witness tampering. Kilimnik was once described as “Manafort's Manafort," his contact in Kiev.

MAY 2018

Trump Boots U.S. Ambassador

President Trump recalled Obama-appointed Marie Yovanovitch from her post as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.

In October of 2019, Yovanovitch will give a closed-door testimony before the House Committees on Oversight and Reform, Foreign Affairs and Intelligence. Here is her opening statement.

She wrote:

Understanding Ukraine's recent history, including the significant tension between those who seek to transform the country and those who wish to continue profiting from the old ways, is of critical importance to understanding the events you asked me here today to describe. Many of those events — and the false narratives that emerged from them — resulted from an unfortunate alliance between Ukrainians who continue to operate within a corrupt system, and Americans who either did not understand that corrupt system, or who may have chosen, for their own purposes, to ignore it.

JUL 2019

Donald Trump Makes Phone Call to Volodymyr Zelenskiy

Then, the fateful phone call. If you haven't heard or read the call transcript yet, here's my reenactment of it:

President Donald J. Trump has released a declassified, un-redacted transcript of his telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy from July 25th, 2019.

The media swiftly and uniformly sided with the unknown whistleblower.

Even when Trump responded, they stuck to their guns.

After months of resisting calls for impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced her support for an impeachment inquiry.

Here's a notice of suspicion signed by the Ukraine general prosecutor on March 28, 2019, announcing the opening of a new investigation against Burisma Holdings Founder Zolchevsky:

Here's Ambassador Kurt Volker, Former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, giving testimony before the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on October 3, 2019:

In yet another bizarre twist, the man who beat Poroshenko in the Ukraine Presidential election this year was Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian.

OCT 2019

What's Next?

Which brings us to now. What's next, you ask?

Well, you've seen all the evidence. What do you think? Do we have a case or what?

Without a doubt.

But that's not enough. It's not enough to know the truth. Not anymore.

So now, we've got to get the facts out there, in the open, so that everyone can see them, and decide for themselves. It's imperative that we reveal the truth. To shrug this off would be a disservice to our nation.

Good luck and godspeed.

My fellow supporters,

It is with a heavy heart that I must make a sad announcement today. The time has come to press pause on the dream of Beto for president. It's not the end of the Beto dream. It's just pressing pause for a while, like pausing a Foss CD. The dream will keep right on spinning, until we return to it and press play again. I mean, look at Bernie Sanders. That guy's almost twice my age and he's still running for president. That means you can look forward to Beto running for office for decades to come. I have found there is tremendous joy and freedom in running for office and never winning. All the travel, Vanity Fair cover stories, food and free beer, with none of the hassle or responsibility of having an actual job in elected office (or any job at all). It's really great.

With the exception of myself, no one has supported Beto more faithfully and true than you, the fans. I'd also like to thank my wife Amy for continually raising our children so that I can travel this great land in my never-ending quest to find myself (and also to connect with you, the fans). From attending my very hip and not-at-all contrived jogging town halls, to slapping those trendy Beto bumper stickers on your hybrid-SUVs, to steadying tables all over America so I could jump on top of them and yell and jab the air, to clicking "like" on all those Facebook videos of my dentist visits – you perpetuated this Beto dream way longer than it had any right to be perpetuated.

So, I'm sure you're now wondering – what's next for Beto?

Other than pursuing my career as a solo rock recording artist, I believe the best way I can serve America and bring true justice to this great land of ours is by stealing from the rich and giving to those who fall in the sweet spot on the intersectionality charts. Except I won't steal from my billionaire father-in-law, only because getting my family cut out of the will would not be in America's best interest. You need a Beto who is independently wealthy via his wife and so do I. Plus, as you know by now, from following the 2020 presidential campaign so closely, the only acceptable status quo in America is leaving the wealth of Progressive elites alone. Everyone else's wealth is fair game, including the middle class. It's the right thing to do.

You need a Beto who is independently wealthy via his wife and so do I.

Therefore, from this day forward I will henceforth be known as Beto Hood. You will be able to join the cause by purchasing official Beto Hood merch soon at Beto Hood dot com. Together, with my band of merry men, who will be known as "merry non-binaries", we will roam the land, righting all the wrongs and bringing about all the social justice that Donald Trump refuses to let you have.

Beto Hood and his Merry Non-Binaries will live on the road. And in the woods (in eco-friendly, fully sustainable treehouse yurts). And in the shadows. We will skateboard and learn archery and rappelling. We will become proficient in hand-to-hand combat. We will become experts in all weaponry except guns, since guns are the evilest weapons. We will care for all the animals of the forest. You already know my affinity for squirrels. Not only will we continue to rescue all the orphan squirrels, we will train them in petty thievery and nimble sabotage. We will affix tiny helmets on them, fitted with tiny Go Pro cameras to live stream their heroic exploits on Facebook. Side note: my colonoscopy next week will also be live streamed on Facebook and available to rent on iTunes.

Using the skills I honed as a college graduate scaling the gates of UTEP, Beto Hood and his Merry Non-Binaries will scale the gates of America's richest and steal from their grotesque wealth. Jewelry, high-end electronics, precious antiques, art, women's shoes – nothing of value will be off-limits. Drawing on my experience while my father was a county judge, we will live above the law. It will be dangerous work, the Lord's work as some people say. But totally worth the risk.

Also, we will not wait for Constitutional amendments nor judicial overreach to get rid of America's AR-15s. We will steal those too. One by one. Using very large versions of those stretchy sticky hands that come in cereal boxes, we will literally be able to snatch these vile guns right out from under the noses of the monsters who own them. Then, with our literal mountain of confiscated AR-15s, we will melt them down and use the metal to build a flotilla of sturdy watercraft, called Beto Boats (trademark pending). Families will be able to use these Beto Boats to save themselves and others when the rising waters of climate change overtake our cities in exactly ten years.

Who needs the presidency? I have big, bold plans for a bright future as an outlaw hero.

Who needs the presidency? I have big, bold plans for a bright future as an outlaw hero. So, don't cry for me, America. Beto will be just fine. Dropping out of this race is nothing that another months-long, head-clearing road trip won't cure. And after that, I'll start shopping for some tights.
