Most of us are familiar with the Stepford Wives, but how many of us realize that the men involved in the so-called Deep State have wives that are anything but Stepford-type women?

Those of us who seek news outside of the mainstream know who Nellie Ohr is. Fox News spent the past week inundating us with information about her. The question is: Why did they wait so long to broadcast data published seven months ago?  Fox News treated it like a news alert – called it that, in fact.

It’s almost as if everything is being carefully timed to achieve a very secret objective.

Do the words “statute of limitations” resonate as the reason behind Robert Mueller’s, the FBI’s, the DOJ’s and Congressional Committees’ unreasonable delays?  If truth can be delayed long enough, no one goes to jail because the statute of limitations comes and goes so no one can be prosecuted.

When a crime (with a few exceptions – like murder) is perpetrated, the authorities have a limited amount of time to catch and prosecute the offender.  If the statute of limitations says the authorities have three years to solve and prosecute the crime, the perp can confess the day after the three year limit passes and cannot be prosecuted for it.  The crime is “dead.”

The Obama administration, the FBI and Department of Justice have handled many of their responsibilities to department policies and to our Constitution with reckless disregard.  If they delay things beyond the statute of limitations they cannot be prosecuted.  Thus they get to maintain their fictitious record of upholding the Constitution against enemies, foreign and domestic, and all of the mafia-like characters who have caused this challenge to our Constitutional Republic — and they get to retire at taxpayer expense.


1.  We know her husband is Bruce Ohr, fourth in command at the FBI at the time the phony Trump Dossier was created by Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS.

2.  We know that both Bruce and Nellie Ohr knew Steele before the Russia/Trump Dossier was plotted by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  We know Bruce Ohr was e-mailing Christopher Steele about it as early as January 2016.

3.  Nellie worked at Fusion GPS.  She (Dr. Ohr) is a recognized Russia expert and studied in the Soviet Union in 1989 before getting her PhD in 1990.  She is said to be fluent in the Russian language and is an expert on cyber security (an unusual combination to say the least). Bruce Ohr is a Deep State husband.  We know Nellie Ohr wrote the dossier for Fusion GPS and we know Bruce Ohr gave all of his wife’s writings about the Trump Russia delusion to the FBI.

4.  According to a sworn statement by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, Dr. Ohr was hired to conduct opposition research on behalf of the Clinton campaign against presidential candidate Donald Trump.

5.  Nellie’s Degrees include an A.B. from Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges, major: Russian History and Literature; and an M.A. and a PhD in History at Stanford University.

6.  Professional experience: She taught history at Vassar College and has written numerous book reviews (almost exclusively about Russian history… she shows a great deal of sympathy for the dilemmas Stalin faced as he killed 40 million Russians to implement and expand communism in the USSR ).

7.  And here’s something Fox News (and the House Intelligence Committee memo and the Inspector General’s report) didn’t tell you:  On May 23, 2016, Nellie Ohr received a technician-level amateur radio license.

As a cyber security expert, Dr. Ohr would know how difficult it is to hide any computer-or telephone-based communications from Big Brother.  A mystery writer could turn this into a very good plot about how to effectively hide from cyber security experts employed by the U.S. government.  Your message can be delivered without being discovered by using a short-wave radio which puts you in touch with people in foreign countries — like Christopher Steele  — while preventing you from having to register as someone who is doing business with foreign agents.


1.  Melissa Hodgman’s career at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) began in 2008 as an Enforcement Division staff attorney.  As of 2016, her salary was reported as $229,968 (according to the Internet).

2.  Hodgman was promoted to her current position as Associate Director in 2012.  Wow!  Talk about a rising star!  Ms. Hodgman – or perhaps I should say Mrs. Peter Strzok – appears to have had a rocket send her career to Wonderland… from beginning staff attorney to Assistant Director in four years!

Peter Strzok is a Deep State FBI husband.

Hodgman must be admired for being very quiet as her husband’s romantic episode with Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer Lisa Page has been media-blasted on front pages world-wide.  Or perhaps the Page episode was part of a plot?  The email-based romance was first discovered by the Inspector General at the DOJ who was conducting an investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

3.  Ms. Hodgman-Strzok’s career boost happened at precisely the time the FBI needed someone at the SEC to, if need be, control access to any illicit contributions or other transactions from publicly-traded entities (like governments and corporations) involving the Clinton Foundation.

In July 2016, James Comey publicly stated Mrs. Clinton had been “extremely careless” when she used a personal email server.  He told the world she would not be prosecuted .  Keep in mind, it was Peter Strzok who changed the words “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” when Comey made his first statement about Mrs. Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State.

Why is that important?  Had Mrs. Clinton been found “grossly negligent” she would have been guilty of a felony.  Indeed, she was guilty of a felony.  Also keep in mind it was the job of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, not FBI Director James Comey, to determine who would or would not be prosecuted.

4.  In October 2016, more than 600,000 Clinton emails were found on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer (which he shared with his wife, long-term Clinton aide Uma Abedin) while Weiner was being investigated for “sexting” with a minor.

5.  James Comey had to announce that he was re-opening the Clinton investigation.  He had no choice because the information had gotten into the hands of the New York Police Department and so was no longer under the exclusive control of the FBI or DOJ.

Perhaps Comey was looking for an insurance policy at the SEC.  The timing is interesting.  Hodgman-Strzok was appointed to her position as Associate Director of the Enforcement Division of the SEC just three weeks before the presidential election and just hours after the Weiner emails were discovered.  It appears Hodgman-Strzok has oversight over which securities and financial crime cases get forwarded to the FBI and DOJ for prosecution.  Mrs. Hodgman-Strzok heads the SEC’s International Division.

6.  Have you wondered why action against Hillary Clinton moves at 0 mph?  Bear in mind, a great many of the transactions involving the Clinton Foundation involve international financial transactions and investment vehicles.  Is the SEC Inspector General investigating any irregularities involving the SEC’s interactions with the Clinton Foundation?  It does not appear so.


1.  She has been called “…the Guardian of the Deep State’s Secrets Gate.”  If it’s true, it is a well-earned nickname.  Why?  Try researching her on the Internet!  She doesn’t have a shadow of a presence.  It is obvious that many things about her have been removed.

2.  She is referred to as “the cleaner” in the one available Internet document (“cleaner” meaning a person who knows how to destroy evidence of a crime).  The document which makes the statement does not provide specific reference material and supplies a lot of potential gossip about Ms. Barsoomian so I mention it here only as a aside.

3.  Her Deep State Husband is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

As for the one document on the Internet that I find a bit suspicious:  There is too little specific information and too many general comments.  I don’t like “anonymous sources.”  I did go to some federal court cases in which Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein was mentioned as having taken part but the public documents have been removed from public access.

4.  One document is reliable.  It is the online bio about Assistant Attorney General Rosenstein.  It states that Rosenstein is married to Lisa Barsoomian, an Armenian-American lawyer.  It also says that as a government attorney she defended cases for Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, various Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) cases and the “Carnivore” surveillance system (which monitors and captures e-mail).

I believe when she defended the FOIA cases she defended the FBI for rejecting them.

5.  The Rosenstein bio says Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein has been practicing law for 24 years and she works for the National Institute of Health (NIH).

I doubt that’s where she works.  Internet information indicates Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein is/was affiliated with another lawyer named R. Craig Lawrence who, according to cases listed on Mr. Lawrence’s Web site has represented Robert Muller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama 45 times, Kathleen Sebelius 56 times, Bill Clinton 40 times and Hillary Clinton 17 times.  Another source says that between 1998 and 2017 Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

6.  Of all the Deep State husbands I researched, this one is the most chilling.  She is probably a bit like her smug husband with that smirk on his face as he was interviewed by a legitimate Congressional Committee (not that Congress is much to write home about).


1.  Sabina Menschel is the current head of Nardello & Company, a Washington, D.C. detective agency.  Internet sources say she is a 1999 Harvard graduate and her resume indicates intelligence experience.

2.  Her Deep State husband is someone about whom you have not yet heard a lot:  Edward William Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division since 2015.

3.  Bill Priestap was Peter Strzok’s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

4.  It is said that Mrs. Menschel-Priestap is one of Washington D.C.’s most feared private spies.

I would point out that husbands and wives cannot be forced to testify against one another.  Unless I’m mistaken, that is why Uma Abedin and Anthony Weiner are still married.  Buried in all of this mess is a strategy.

I enjoy living too much to say more.  I’ve given you enough information on all of these people for you to do some research on your own.

It’s Sunday and I want you to enjoy your weekend – otherwise, I’d tell you about President Trump’s current but as yet not approved Supreme Court appointee, Judge Kavanaugh, and his wife, Ashley Estes, secretary to President George W. Bush on September 10, 2001… evacuated from the White House during the 9/11 attacks.  The Kavanaughs (who met in the White House) are very close to the Bush family (George W. and Laura attended their wedding).

After writing and researching the above, I thought a great deal about Martin Luther King’s statement that it is far more important to know what we are willing to die for rather than just for what we will live our lives.

The research I gathered about this story (and some of which I did not include in the article) has been shared as a matter of protection.  I am not dying of a disease, I rarely drive anywhere (even more rarely on a highway), I am not depressed or suicidal – and I love my country.

Have a blessed Sunday!
