Tell your friends: Ray in no-holds-barred interview (one of his best) on Rep. Nunes’s decision to hold FBI/DOJ leaders to account for wangling permission to surveil Trump associates by deceiving the Court. “Liberal” pundits like WashPost’s Eugene Robinson are shocked: “Trump Has Picked a Fight With the FBI. He’ll Be Sorry.”

Feb. 5, 2018 (68 minutes)

Tom Woods had done his homework, asked good questions, and gave Ray enough time to adduce facts and make analytic observations that may be totally new to many listeners. Robinson’s Feb. 2 op-ed was highly revealing — a symbol of the obstacles Nunes faces from both “mainstream” and “progressive” media — all having donned their We Love the FBI T-shirts. Here, for example, is how Robinson’s op-ed begins:

“Presidents don’t win fights with the FBI. Donald Trump apparently wants to learn this lesson the hard way.

“Most presidents have had the sense not to bully the FBI by defaming its leaders and — ridiculously — painting its agents as leftist political hacks. Most members of Congress have also understood how unwise it would be to pull such stunts. But Trump and his hapless henchmen on Capitol Hill, led by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), have chosen the wrong enemy. History strongly suggests they will be sorry.” …

The die is cast. Keep tuning in.

Is Putin Profoundly Corrupt or “Incorruptible?”

By Sharon Tennison, February 4, 2018

Unlike professional pundit pontificators pronouncing on President Vladimir Putin, Sharon Tennison — a longtime Russia-watcher — has dealt with him personally.  In this article, she recounts that experience and makes other observations based largely on her work in Russia over the past several decades.

In 2016 Ray spent a highly instructive two weeks with a Center for Citizens Initiatives (CCI) delegation led by Sharon Tennison.  (Turns out Russia had changed a bit in the years since Ray was posted there!)

Tennison is Founder and President of the Center for Citizen Initiatives and author of The Power of Impossible Ideas: Ordinary Citizens’ Extraordinary Efforts to Avert International Crises, which Ray highly recommends.  You may also wish to give a copy to your representatives in House and Senate.

Nunes Memo Reports Crimes at Top of FBI/DOJ

Nunes Memo Reports Crimes at Top of FBI & DOJ

The House Intelligence Committee Calls Out the Covert Crooks.

The FBI/CIA/NSA “Deep-State” actors will not take this lying down.  They will obfuscate, deny, denigrate, threaten — all the things crooks do when documentary evidence catches them in the act.

Their hope lies in the co-opted “mainstream” media (and, sad to say, the almost equally corrupted “progressive” media), which are likely to find it too embarrassing to reverse course and tell the truth about Russia/”Deep-State”-gate.

The denouement?  Not clear.  But we are likely to have some clear hints rather soon.  No one should fall asleep — least of all those who took the solemn oath to support and depend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.  That oath has no expiration date.

Ray reviews the bidding on Russia-cum-FBI-gate, and more, with Bedros Hajian, a leader of the Armenian community in the Los Angeles area. Ray covers some new aspects.

FBI Deputy Canned; Other Heads Likely to Roll, IF Congress Can Hold the Archdeacons of the Deep State to Account

Peter B. Collins interviewed Ray on Jan. 29, 2018 on Russia-gate morphing into FBI/gate.  They began paying tribute to the late Robert Parry, founder/publisher/editor of and his relentless pursuit of truth as the quintessential investigative journalist. The discussion then dug deeply into the unfinished work that writers for, including Ray, are trying to pursue — with Perry-like intensity, integrity and tenaciousness.

The issue is now joined on FBI-gate; the denouement is probably not far off.  Ray believes it is no exaggeration to suggest that the very future of the Republic hinges largely on whether the Deep State comes out on top, as usual, or whether this time victory goes to the U.S. Constitution and the separation of powers it established, giving primacy to the people’s representatives in Congress.
