No Surprise: Schiff Reportedly Hired Two NSC Aides Who Worked With Ukraine Whistleblower
More on this story from yesterday.
[Townhall] House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) hired two National Security Counsel (NSC) aides who worked with the Ukrainian whistleblower while at the NSC during both the Obama and Trump administration, the Washington Examiner reported.

Abigail Grace worked at the NSC from 2016 to 2018 in U.S.-China relations, followed by a short stint at the Center for a New American Security think tank. Schiff tapped her in February to work as an Intelligence Committee staffer to help investigate the Trump White House.

The second aide, Sean Misko, worked as an NSC aide until 2017. He was also part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's policy planning staff under Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. He joined the Intelligence Committee as a staffer in August, the same month the whistleblower filed his complaint.

It's becoming obvious that "Deep State" is a misnomer:
there's nothing "deep" about these buffoons.

They're transparent. They're completely incompetent; they don't cover their tracks; they now telegraph everything in advance.

"Shitshow" is more apt.

Rand Paul Calls For Probe Into 4 Democratic Senators Over Threats To Ukraine
h/t Puppy blender
[DailyWire] Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) called for a probe into four Democratic Senators on Sunday over a letter that they sent to Ukraine in 2018 that threatened to withhold aid from the country if it did not continue to investigate President Donald Trump.

DOJ IG Report to Be Released Friday October 18 and Will Cover ‘More Than Just FISA Abuse'
[GatewayPundit] Fox News "Sunday Morning Futures" host Maria Bartiromo told Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA) on Sunday that the DOJ IG report on FISA abuse will be released Friday October 18.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been working on a report documenting the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] abuses by Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election targeting Donald Trump.

"It’s as thick as a telephone book," Bartiromo said. "More than just FISA abuse."

Congressman Nunes in January of 2018 released a 2-page FISA memo revealing Hillary Clinton’s phony dossier formed an essential role in the FBI obtaining the FISA warrants on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

In fact, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified that if not for the phony Russia dossier, the FBI would never have sought the FISA warrants.

The FBI, under Comey’s Directorship, obtained one FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Carter Page beginning in October of 2016 and ending in June of 2017.

The FBI also defrauded the FISA judges by withholding exculpatory evidence on Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos.

#7  It's all out in the open now. Not "deep" or mysterious or hidden in any way.

When an "expose" like the latest Project Veritas video comes out, there's literally nothing in it that's new or that wasn't already known.

Now the Shitshowmen are speaking openly about their plots, inductions dangerous, etc.

They're on cable. They have Twitter accounts. They talk to journalists. They pretend to be journalists. They don't need or use masks.

Nothing deep about 'em--non-deep as in transparent and non-deep as in shallow/dumb.

Not a Deep State but a theatrical performance: a farce, a travesty, a burlesque show, a clownshow, a Shitshow.

Donaldson: Trump Supporters Have a ‘Fixation’ on Returning U.S. to a ‘White Christian Country’
No, my dear. You mean Zim-bob-we, known when it was prosperous and law-abiding as Rhodesia.
[BREITBART] On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s "Reliable Sources," former ABC "World News’ anchor Sam Donaldson accused President Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
’s supporters of having a "fixation" on returning America to a "white Christian country."

Donaldson said, "The Trump rallies are Trump’s strong supporters. I mean, ’lock her up,’ all the things he says, all the vicious, mean things he says, they love it. There are these people in this country. They’re good Americans otherwise. They’ll probably give you the shirt off their back, they’ll help you if you need it, but they have this fixation. They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don’t want the diversity, and they follow him for this, but they’re not the country. We are a diverse people, we are good and strong because of that, and we’re going to come back to that. I assure you."

Just as the left can burn the flag for one specific protest-related issue and say they aren't burning down the good things the flag represents I can look fondly back on those issues and not even think about social issues.

Schiff Says Congress May Not Need To Interview Whistleblower After All
[DAILYCALLER] Rep. Adam Schiff
...Showboating U.S. Representative for California's 28th congressional district since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, Schiff has served in Congress since 2001. He currently serves as the chairman of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. In a manner reminiscent of Joe McCarthy, on March 22, 2017, in a interview with Chuck Todd on MSNBC Schiff claimed there was “more than circumstantial evidence now” that Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
's campaign colluded with Russia." Todd followed up by asking if he had seen direct evidence of collusion and Schiff responded that there was "evidence that is not circumstantial and is very much worthy of investigation...
said Sunday that the House Intelligence Committee might not need to interview the CIA analyst who filed a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump, a reversal for the Democrat, who has come under fire for failing to disclose the whistleblower’s contacts with his office.

Schiff acknowledged he initially supported the whistleblower testifying about the Aug. 12 complaint, which centered on a July 25 phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call, we have the best evidence of that," Schiff said on "Face the Nation." "It may not be necessary to take steps that might reveal the whistleblower’s identity to do that, and we’re going to make sure we protect that whistleblower."

The Democrat has slowly pulled back his preference for the whistleblower to testify after it was revealed Oct. 2 that the CIA analyst had contact with a Schiff aide prior to filing the complaint Aug. 12.

Yes, but itkeeps the Democrats and their enablers busy and focussed while President Trump gets on with other things, like reorganizing the situation in Syria, persuading Mexico to stop passing all those migrants through, reducing NSA staffing by 2/3rds, proposing and approving more young judges, and so forth.

And elsewhere, Twitchy notes the response of the voters to all the shenanigans:

Republicans flip enough seats to gain a supermajority in the Louisiana State Senate

So even if the Democrat governor wins the runoff election next month, he’ll have trouble getting anything unconservative done.

Home Front: Culture Wars
Glenn Greenwald: CNN and MSNBC Are Like "State TV" With Ex-Intel Officials As Contributors
h/t Instapundit
Glenn Greenwald called out the media for not apologizing for "lying to people" and being wrong in their years covering the Trump-Russian collusion investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. He called on top primetime cable hosts to go before cameras, hang their head in shame and apologize.

"It was continuously on MSNBC which, let me just say, should have their top posts on primetime, go before the cameras and hang their head in shame, and apologize for lying to people for three straight years exploiting their fears to great profit," Greenwald told Carlson. "These are people who are on the verge of losing their jobs. That whole network was about to collapse, this whole scam saved them."

Think Tank Study Shows Democrats Fixing College Loan Crisis That Doesn't Exist
h/t Instapundit
[EpochTimes] Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) would end the college loan "crisis" by forgiving $1.25 Trillion in such debt and then making college tuition-free, but a new study casts doubt that such a program is even needed.

Warren claims the crisis is so great that it is "crushing millions of families and acting as an anchor on our economy. It’s reducing home ownership rates. It’s leading fewer people to start businesses. It’s forcing students to drop out of school before getting a degree. It’s a problem for all of us."

...But Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Beth Akers said in a study made public Oct. 10 that "Millennials aren’t drowning in student debt." Data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Education show Warren, Sanders and others claiming a college loan crisis are misrepresenting reality.

"Sixty-six percent of millennials have no student debt at all. That’s because they haven’t gone to college or because they managed to get through without having to borrow," Akers wrote.

"Those who do have debt tend to have modest burdens relative to their income. Typical four-year-degree graduates who borrow will accumulate $28,500 in debt over the course of their enrollment," she said.

According to Akers’ calculation, the $28,500 can be repaid at a monthly cost of less $200, which represents only four percent of the average monthly earnings for such individuals.
