Louise Mensch

April 17, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, if you’re not following Louise Mensch’s blog and twitter account, you are missing what is either the scoop of the century or the best James Bond thriller ever.  I don’t know which but its worth your time.

Sources with links to the intelligence community say it is believed that Carter Page went to Moscow in early July carrying with him a pre-recorded tape of Donald Trump offering to change American policy if he were to be elected, to make it more favorable to Putin. In exchange, Page was authorized directly by Trump to request the help of the Russian government in hacking the election.

If she’s right (more about her here), then this thing’s gonna blow like Miles Davis with a two ton trumpet.

    I have totally been following her, she is WAY PLUGGED IN! She has had every aspect of this investigation pretty much dead right all along, thanks to her extensive contacts.

    All the stuff I mentioned in my November 1 column about Alfa Bank and the Drumpf Dossier and Manafort she was on MONTHS before that. http://juanitajean.com/the-noble-brutus-has-said-clinton-is-ambitious/

    Just about everything she’s whispered, said or shouted is being borne out, the entire gist and almost 100% of the niggling details.

    Pay Attention: she says Trump team arrests could start as soon as this week.

    Interesting side note: Most of the discoveries in the TrumpRussia saga are coming from overseas intelligence communities, and have been fed to the FBI CIA and who knows whomever else, by friendly foreigners – whom we used to regard indisputably as allies, and who are proving it now, despite the treatment they’re getting for the current ROTUS (Resident…)

    Germany, obviously, has been all over this. No wonder Trump wouldn’t shake hands with Angela Merkel — she knows!

    It’s Orange Xenophobia’s biggest nightmare coming true.

    BTW, people, also feel free to follow @daChipster on daTwitter. Let me know its you from here and I will follow back.

    Hey, when you’re basically a thug who has had extensive dealings with gangsters your entire “professional” life–with no negative repercussions–of course you think you can steal the presidential election with help from your Russkie gangster friends.

  3. My problem with this is that people have been proving horrible things about Trump for years and he still got elected President (sort-of).

    The Washington Beltway may react since politics is their lives. Most voters are more concerned about their own economic realities. They don’t vote sensibly since they anointed Trump as Middle Class Savior, but I doubt they would have cared much about Russia either way.

    Besides, my dream is that we can tie corruption, scandal and treason around the neck of the entire Repub party, not just Trump. If the Repubs can demonize the Dems, we should return the favor.

  4. Just so we are all on the same Page, so to speak, see 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason
    “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

    If Carter Page did indeed deliver such a recording to a contact within the Russian government, IMHO, he “adheres to” America’s enemy and is guilty of treason.

    If Donald Drumpf makes such a recording of this for that, he “adheres to” America’s enemy and is guilty of treason.

    Perhaps the Bureau of Prisons should open another building at Florence, Colorado. The ADX might start to get crowded very soon.

  5. Don’t worry the Freedumb loving Repubs will block any legal proceedings as long as possible.
    They got their prized Supreme Court majority but they’re holding out for tax cuts to billionaire buddies and privatize Social Security.
    They’re sooo close.

  6. It’s a real nail biter, a tight race to see if Trump can Nuke someone and declare martial law first before he gets arrested for Treason.

  7. George in Lee County says:

    Actually, Micr, the more important page to be on is that of Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution, where “Treason” is defined:

    “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

    This is a somewhat “tight” definition which sets what may be an insurmountable burden of proof in some cases: Two witnesses to the same overt act.

    There is also a youge can of worms waiting to be opened if the government tries to paint Russia as an enemy in order to convict the Trumpistas as being treasonous. Has Russia been officially designated by the US Government as an “enemy”? If so, there are a lot of people and businesses which have been trading with the enemy, which is also a crime.

    I doubt that Trump or any of his associates will be charged with treason based on what we know now of their activities. An easier case to make is that of espionage, or of sedition.

  8. I don’t know– is Trump that smart, to offer Putin a deal?

    A new Gallup poll out this morning, however, strongly suggests that an increasing number of Americans just don’t believe Trump’s spin about his presidency anymore. It finds that only 45 percent of Americans think Trump keeps his promises, down from 62 percent in February, an astonishing slide of 17 points:

    Lex@1:14 pm articulates the problem: “It’s a real nail biter, a tight race to see if Trump can Nuke someone and declare martial law first before he gets arrested for Treason.”

    Let’s hope, in the race between Trump and the American people, that we win.

  10. I just followed Louise Mensch and daChipster. I’m @DEBishopMSP.

    Arrests? Arrests! I can’t wait! Can’t wait! Yeah!

  11. I remember, back when I was a teenage antiwar activist, that Republicans (and sadly a few Democrats, too) were ALWAYS accusing us of taking our marching orders from Moscow. Now? Crickets.

  12. ” That Other Jean says:

    My bets with you!
    But with this evil vindictive vengeful psycho Madman it’s gonna be close.

  13. One word of caution regarding Mensch. She can and does get things wrong. Case in point her recent attacks on Pro Publica, an independent investigative journalism site with impeccable credentials. Mensch has been right a lot but when she’s wrong she doesn’t back down, she doubles down. She also appears to get a lot of intel from John Schindler who is a discredited spook.

    I follow her but take what she says with a hopeful grain of salt.
    I’d suggest following @selectedwisdom that’s Clint Watts who testified so brilliantly in front of the select committee. @MalcolmNance 35 years in Intelligence, @RVAwonk a behavioral scientist, @DavidCorn from Mother Jones. They were all ahead of Mensch on these stories and they are rock solid 100% reliable.

    I’d also recommend @ASlavitt Andy Slavitt on healthcare he is top notch and @Karoli the editor of Crooks and Liars and @joshtpm Josh Marshall from Talking Points Memo.

    Oh and I’m dtwyman on the Twitter machine, where I Tweet far too much as Juanita her own self can attest.

  14. @George in Lee County

    You make good points. Esp the “at war” status.

    The Rosenbergs were executed for conspiracy to commit espionage for the Soviet Union, why should we expect less today?

    Carter Page, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, the list of co-conspirators is vast.

  15. Mother Jones' cat says:

    Sometimes when things are too good to be true….

    One kind of dead give away is the fact that she claims that Page has a tape recording. Nobody makes tape recordings anymore and finding the equipment and tape would be fairly impossible. A digital recording, yes. But a tape recording, no.

    And here’s a little bit about Louise:

    “In 2000, she married Italian-American real estate developer Anthony LoCicero. They have three children, but separated in 2009. The marriage ended in divorce. In June 2011, she married music manager Peter Mensch, whom she had first met twenty years earlier. They reside in New York City.

    Louise Mensch is diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, which made her realise she was “self medicating” with wine for stress, and she has now almost completely given up alcohol. She also commented that taking hard drugs in the 1990s “messed with [her] brain and had long-term mental health effects.”

    “In June 2012, Louise Mensch joined forces with former Labour digital adviser Luke Bozier to set up a social networking website – a politics-based rival to Twitter. The site, named Menshn – pronounced “mention” – allowed users to select their topic of interest. Mensch hoped to raise venture capital finance. After its launch, Mumsnet made Mensch a featured blogger on its blog network. The site was initially criticised by IT industry experts for using http instead of secure https to communicate passwords. Bozier disputed this claim, but the site switched to the secure protocol. Menshn closed in February 2013.

    After the closure of Menshn, Louise Mensch announced she was setting up a style and fashion blog called Unfashionista. The website was covered widely in the British press and received mixed reviews. One of Mensch’s pieces on Unfashionista was a reaction to allegedly sexist comments by Nobel Prize winner Tim Hunt. After researching the backgrounds of various people involved in the luncheon at which he spoke, Mensch wrote an exhaustive blog post criticizing the ethics of Connie St Louis, Deborah Blum and Ivan Oransky, the first three journalists to condemn Hunt’s speech.”
