How Madeleine Westerhout,  Got Her Dream Job at the White House, Lost It, and What She Learned


“Great new book by former Director of Oval Office Operations, Madeleine Westerhout, entitled “Off the Record”. When I look at all of the Fake Books and garbage written about me, it’s really nice to see a very smart and already wise young woman write an honest depiction of what went on at the White House during some extremely interesting and important times. So many good stories by someone who, unlike most other so called writers, was actually there, and a part of the action - of which there was plenty. Go buy this book, a job well done!”

Madeline Westerhout was executive assistant to President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2019, and the Director of Oval Office Operations at the White House from February to August 2019.
Madeleine Westerhout, the former "gatekeeper" of the Trump White House, writes about her relationship with the president, and tells the story of the terrible mistake that led to her losing her job.

From the first day President Trump stepped into the White House, Madeleine Westerhout was by his side, first as his executive assistant, then as the Director of Oval Office Operations. From her desk outside the Oval, she saw everyone who came in to see the president. She placed his phone calls, and was in the room for several historic moments. During her time working with President Trump at the White House, Camp David, Mar a Lago, and Bedminster, she grew to love her job and admire the president.
Then, in an unguarded moment during a dinner with reporters, she made a terrible mistake.
In Off the Record, Westerhout tells the full story of this dinner for the first time, revealing the circumstances that led to her fateful mistake. She also writes about her relationship with President Trump -- all the lessons she learned working with him, and why she believes he is a much different man than the one the media portrays every day. Westerhout describes President Trump as a kind and generous boss who continues to be a great leader for our country.

'You don't win the game in the first inning,' say former federal prosecutor Ex-FBI lawyer Clinesmith pleads guilty to falsifying email in Russia probe in Durham's first case.

John Durham to Interviewed  Former CIA Director John Brennan.
LEGAL ANALYST/AUTHOR: John O'Connor, Postgate: How the Washington Post Betrayed Deep Throat, Covered Up Watergate, and Began Today's Partisan Advocacy Journalism He served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Northern California representing the United States in both criminal and civil cases.

Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty Wednesday to falsifying an email used to support the surveillance of President Donald Trump's former campaign aide Carter Page.

The case against Clinesmith is the first to be brought by federal prosecutor John Durham, appointed last year by Attorney General William Barr to review the origins of the FBI's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Clinesmith, who worked at the FBI for four years, is accused of altering an email in 2017 that investigators relied on to justify an application to wiretap Page, according to court records. The altered email indicated that Page was "not a source" for the Central Intelligence Agency. The original email from the CIA indicated otherwise.

During a brief court appearance via telephone Wednesday, Clinesmith admitted that he altered the email but said he believed at the time that the information he added was accurate.

Matthew Sullivan has found a better way to draw down equity in your home. Rather than loan you the money, he'll buy a piece of your home and won't charge you any interest or require any monthly payments. He'll take his cut when you sell your home or you buy him out. Which could be a very good way to quickly get some needed cash. You won't need to fill out a credit app or go begging your banker. It's all very straight forward and easy. It's worth checking out if you have equity in your home.

By all rights, Terrance K. Williams probably should have wound up in prison or dead. One of nine black children born to a crack addicted mother, Terrance went from one foster home to another. When he wasn't in a foster home he was in a juvenile shelter. Somehow, it only made him stronger. An unshakable belief in God and in himself helped get him through it all. Now he's a Trump Supporter and has visited the Whitehouse and can personally attest to the fact that President Trump is not a racist. It's an incredible story of indomitable will and the drive make something of himself, which he most certainly has.

When we last spoke with Trilogy Metals CEO Tony Giardini, the company was anxiously awaiting US Government approval of its 120 mile road connecting its Ambler Mining District with the famed Dawson Highway. That approval was the only thing standing between Trilogy and developing this huge mining district. And finally, after numerous delays, the approval came through and the project was green-lighted. 

The recently released feasibility study gives a glimpse of what's in store. 

  • Pre-tax Net Present Value (“NPV”)8% of $1.6 Billion and an Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”) of 31% for the base case.
  • After-tax NPV8% of $1.1 Billion and after-tax IRR of 27% for the base case.
  • At current spot metals prices of $2.94/lb copper, $1.09/lb zinc, $0.89/lb lead, $2,001/oz gold and $28.89/oz silver, the pre-tax NPV8% is $1.8 Billion and IRR is 33.8% and after-tax NPV8% is $1.3 Billion and IRR is 29.6%.

As shown above there's billions in copper, zinc, lead, silver and gold just waiting to be realized. And that's without taking the massive exploration potential into account. With $145 million in the bank and global partner South 32, the road ahead is indeed paved with riches.

The pandemic will end, but what happens to economic fallout? The most important thing is that gold has hit multiple record highs. We had a slight retracement last week. Investors were buying the dip. GLD has had the highest volume on record. Silver has tripled since March, but it hasn’t hit the $50 levels of its past peaks. Gold could be ending the year in the $2200-$2300 range. Gary was predicting $2060 gold for now in April. Silver will challenge and break $30. If gold keeps moving, silver will hit the $40-$50 range and perhaps above. The Fed’s bailouts have no upper limits. They’ll keep buying bonds as long as it takes. No economic recovery on the horizon. Dollar could decline to 88 before all is said and done. Precious metals will continue to have intrinsic value as money printing continues unabated. It’s a race to zero. Mines were closed for several months and the US Mint ran out of silver rounds. $34 on this leg of the rally and on the next it could go well over $47.

When we last spoke with Andy he warned of a looming precious metals shortage in the fall, due to the near global mine shutdown caused by Covid 19. “We are at roughly 8 times normal sales at Miles Franklin.” Federal indictments against JP Morgan metal traders in March make Andy believe that it’s changed landscape. Silver went from around $12 to nearly $30. Gold went to $2000. Bottom line is that prices were supressed. Andy has been accumulating metals from any available source. He’s got a large selection of gold and islver. Jump quickly. Premiums are high. There’s not enough supply. It’s a challenge to get product.

The insanity strategy. U.S. Attorney General William Barr is taking action. Realizing that the Left is now full on Communist, willing to burn the entire country down to get its way, and pulling out all the stops to take down the Trump Administration, Barr appears to be making this month as the critical nexus of his legal activity to restore law and order at all levels in our nation. If Barr does not act this week, the Conservative Treehouse has information that it has compiled over several months, that if released will make it impossible for the DOJ to not act.

  1. Markets keep going up and the valuation of equities is over 177% of GDP. 
  2. Dollar going down
  3. Gold going up - Warren Buffett buys Barrack and sells all his shares Goldman Sacks. He’s selling banks and buying gold stocks. Late to the game. Long term rates coming down and short term rates are near zero. Inflation target above 2%. Banks can’t make money. 
  4. Silver going up. It will become the best investment in the world. 
  5. All we need is a vaccine and we can get back to normal. Wrong. Everytime the Fed raised rates the markets choked. Then the repo market seized up. Economy was headed down before Covid 19. The debt we’ve added and the falsification of assets and fake rates. 
  6. World Economy is rapidly declining. There's no way out!

Food prices rising:

"From February to June, meat and poultry prices rose nearly 11%, with beef and veal prices seeing the highest rise, spiking 20%. For pork the increase was about 8.5%. People are paying more for other staples, too: During the same time period, egg prices shot up 10%, and shoppers shelled out 4% more for cereals and fresh vegetables."

Last week I made the decision to start taking Hydroxychloquine (HCQ). I'm not a doctor or other healthcare professional and I'm certainly not recommending for you to take HCQ. I'm only relaying to you, what went into my thought process in deciding to start an HCQ/Zinc regimen. I'm 63 years old, have slightly high blood pressure and am pre-diabetic. Although both conditions are treated and well under control, this puts me in a higher risk category than many in my age group. While still my chances of dying from Covid-19 are well under 1 percent, I felt I didn't want to wait around to get infected. The literature and studies appear to indicate the HCQ/Zinc may have a prophylactic effect with, contrary to mainstream media induced hysteria, very little risk. So in consultation with my doctor I made the decision. So far, zero side effects other than Zinc upsetting my stomach slightly. By the way, Zinc is essential to a healthy functioning immune system. So let me know what you think.

COVID-19 ECONOMIC IMPACT ANALYST: David Sussman, is the founder and CEO of VALCOR Worldwide, and a nationally recognized small business advocate and consultant.
President Trump issued 4 executive orders that  unilaterally impose a stimulus plan, including a suspension of the payroll tax, an extension of federal unemployment benefits, an eviction moratorium and another round of individual stimulus checks.
The constitutionality of such a move in unclear. And some people tell FOX Business Trump may be using this as a negotiating tactic to bring Democrats to the table and hammer out a compromise. Either way, Trump did it and he's sent the Democrat's leaders Pelosi and Schumer reeling.

Fast forward to now and we see that David was correct. His stocks are way way up and they're barely getting started. To David, the recent pull back is welcome news. We don't want to see a parabolic rise as that inevitably ends in sorrow. Even more over-sized gains are on the horizon.

n the early days of the coronavirus crisis, President Donald Trump was flanked in the White House briefing room by a team of public health experts in a seeming portrait of unity to confront the disease that was ravaging the globe.
But as the crisis has spread to all reaches of the country, with escalating deaths and little sense of endgame, a chasm has widened between the president and the experts. The result: daily delivery of a mixed message to the public at a moment when coherence is most needed. 

Trump and his political advisers insist that the United States has no rival in its response to the pandemic. They point to the fact that the U.S. has administered more virus tests than any other nation and that the percentage of deaths among those infected is among the lowest.

As Steve reports, "The latest Rasmussen poll has trump at 51 percent approval, 7 points higher than Obama at this point in his presidency. Such poll numbers are all the more remarkable given the radically and absurdly negative coverage Trump receives on an hourly basis from the mainstream media. In fact, the Media Research Center conducted a study that found that 92 percent of the media’s coverage of President Trump was decisively negative, the mirror opposite of the fawning coverage that daily accompanied the Obama presidency. But Rasmussen isn't an outlier. The latest Democracy Institute poll has Trump beating Biden by a margin of 48 percent to 46 percent, with Trump leading by a healthy five points in crucial swing states like Florida, Iowa, Michigan, and Pennsylvania."

n the August 1st piece on Politico by Jean Guerrero entitled "The Man Who Made Stephen Miller," they claim that almost 20 years ago I cultivated an angry high-school student named Stephen Miller and that now his ideas are coming to life in the Trump administration. I never claimed to have "made" Stephen Miller. He was a brilliant young man when I met him. Stephen and I are what a reasonable person would call "classical liberals" - we both have written thousands if not hundreds of thousands of words to make clear our positions. But the author of this article is determined to smear us both as racists. This is the fascist mentality of the left. If you disagree with someone, they must be racists. Being against illegal immigration and being for merit immigration, as we both are, is not "anti-immigrant" as this article maliciously claims. To call Stephen or me "hatemongers" and to insinuate that we are racists is just to pull a page out of the slimiest smear site in the country, but it's par for the course for leftists. Identity politics is racism. The Democrat Party trades in racist attacks on a daily basis. I have written three books on race - all of them organized around Martin Luther King's vision of a world in which people are judged on their character, not on their skin color. Of course, being a leftist and supporting a Democrat Party Guerrero wouldn't understand that. Shame on Politico for reprinting this.

Cyclical credit contraction. Stock market is vulernable to a downturn that no one sees coming. Going into the fall you can have a much more severe correction, especially the NY Market. Don’t use the Wuhan Flu to make any investing decisions, both long or short. The liquidity events could be very severe and substantial. Where we’re getting huge excesses in Silver, we’re getting very high excesses in the US Dollar’s decline. We’re in a very lengthy expansion and bull market in metals which will raise prices of majors, medium sized companies and explorers. When a discovery is made, you’re rapidly building an asset. But be prepared for the inevitable pullback, so take so money off the table and get ready for the next upside move.
