Polipace has learned that Matt Gaetz, the congressman from Florida who is most known for his seven arrests for driving impared, has been working with Roger Stone and Donald Trump to create a fake story about the FBI and Mueller’s investigation.
Matt Gaetz had a secret meeting with Roger Stone only two days before an unannounced trip with Donald Trump on Air Force One, where he admits that he spoke extensively with Trump about a plan to remove Mueller from office. Then the next day, Trump tweeted about his beliefs that the investigation was indeed tainted.
He also had a sit down meeting, according to sources Oct 6th in Orlando, where they spent several hours planning. Then the next day Stone appeared at a fundraiser for Gaetz.
Trump has claimed that he no longer talks to Roger Stone, a target of Mueller’s criminal investigation – and his attorneys have said the same thing.
Stone is accused of, among other things, of being in constant contact with questionable entities including Wikileaks and the Russian FSB Intelligence Service.
Stone is suspected to still be working with Russians to plant stories on political enemies and then attempt to bring it to Fox News.
Stone has claimed he only communicated with founder Julian Assange via an intermediary when WikiLeaks was mounting its campaign against Hillary Clinton. But after his three-hour, closed-door session with the committee, Stone told reporters he had declined to identify his claimed go-between.
With this revelation that Gaetz is working directly with Stone, who is talking to his friends in Russia it means that Trump is still using Russia, with his knowledge, to pass information and create fake stories about political opponents.
Oliver North Resigns: NRA Civil War Goes Public
Wayne LaPierre, who has been the public face of the NRA for decades, claims that the NRA is in serious trouble and may shut down after the latest public battle. The civil war between NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre and now-departing NRA president Oliver North exploded into the open Friday night with yelling, threats and screaming.
In a statement read to members of the group Saturday, North said he believes a committee should be set up to review the NRA’s finances. He said there is a “clear crisis” and “it needs to be dealt with” if the NRA is to survive.
He also then said he is resigning, and will not seek re-election.
Making this weirder, NRA is currently suing their public relations firm, Ackerman McQueen, over access to documents detailing how the firm spent the NRA’s money.
NRA board members grew increasingly concerned about whether they were getting their money’s worth from their long time advertising and PR firm; according to financial documents cited in The New Yorker, the NRA paid Ackerman McQueen just under $41 million in 2017 for ads that often just involved a logo. North is also an employee of Ackerman McQueen.

North is also an employee of Ackerman McQueen.
North had sent a letter to the NRA board contending that the NRA had paid for, through a vendor, more than $200,000 of clothing purchases by LaPierre, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Additionally, there is an issue that the NRA has been delving into topics that have nothing to do with gun education and rights. Some members claim the NRA has compromised its values and is more aligned with politicians and enamored of power than its membership.
As a non-profit, they could be in trouble, if its found they are ignoring their primary mission and working in politics.
New York State could close down the NRA entirely by moving for dissolution if found that they are not following the law. As a nonprofit chartered in New York, the NRA falls under New York law and the purview of the NRA-hating NY Attorney General. She has frequently expressed her desire to tear down the organization, and has been signaling a pending investigation into NRA finances.
Hannity Wants to Leave FoxNews to Work for TrumpTV
The timing of Sean Hannity’s potential departure from Fox News matches up with Trump’s possible exit from the White House if he loses in 2020. Trump TV was an idea that was kicked around by the Trumps when they expected to lose the 2016 election, so it is almost too perfect that Trump TV could put into action if Trump gets booted out of the White House next year.
As Fox News continues to lose key members of its team, all eyes are now on Sean Hannity, who remains one of the last stars standing from the network’s primetime lineup. Hannity a few months ago tweeted an article denying reports that he was working on his exit strategy — but now seems to be confirming he no longer wants to be there.
According to sources, Hannity is still angry over the Murdochs’ firing of Fox News C.E.O. Roger Ailes and co-president Bill Shine, Hannity’s close friend and former producer. Hannity believes the Murdochs are out to get Trump. “Hannity told Trump last year that the Murdochs hate Trump, and Hannity is the only one holding Fox together,” a source who heard the conversation told me. Hannity has told friends that he intends to leave Fox when his contract expires in early 2021, two people who’ve spoken with him said.
A Fox News staffer told Vanity Fair, “Sean doesn’t feel supported. He has no relationship with Lachlan [Murdoch]. According to HillReporter: Sean thinks, Wait a second, I was hired to get ratings and I get ratings, but now people are embarrassed about me? He feels Fox spends a lot of time supporting Shepard Smith but his show makes no money. That’s annoying to him.”
Trump’s own TV network was dreamed of as a challenger to Fox News. There could be no better way to challenge Fox for their own viewers than to poach their highest rated host. The Fox News dominance of conservative media is close to splintering. Fox can’t afford to lose many more advertisers, and if their pro-Trump hosts bolt, Fox News as we know it could be dead and gone.
Trump death touch is killing everything on the right, potentially including Fox News.
Trump Blames Dead McCain for Healthcare Failures
In a Thursday interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Trump attacked late Senator John McCain (R-AZ). He said McCain “did the nation a tremendous disservice” when he voted against a GOP bill that would repeal and replace ObamaCare in 2017.
“He did the Republican Party a tremendous disservice and he did the nation a tremendous disservice, tremendous, and it’s unfortunate,” Trump said, according to The Hill.
“He went thumbs-down at the very last moment and I thought it was a disgraceful thing to do and very, very bad for our country and bad for health care,” Trump continued. “It was done and then John McCain, at the very last moment, late in the evening, went thumbs-down and everybody said, ‘What was that?'”
Trump also criticized McCain for being connected to a dossier of claims about Trump and Russia. Trump also complained about not being thanked for giving McCain the “kind of funeral that he wanted” after the senator died of brain cancer in August 2018.
“I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK,” Trump said.
