Looking for Mr. Good Barr in all the wrong places?

So were those hopes for AG Barr’s pending justice in vain, once again, misplaced or wildly unjustified to begin with? Have we engaged in another game of wait and see only to, in the end, see nothing warranting the long wait? The odds are not good either.

Has the Deep State beaten Bill Barr?

By Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory [excerpts]

“Among law-and-order conservatives and defenders of Trump, it was widely hoped that Barr would be an A.G. unintimidated by the Deep State, with the intestinal fortitude to push back against a DOJ corrupted by progressive lawyers and grandiose bureaucrats blinded by their irrational and atavistic hatred for Trump. Perhaps Barr might even mete out long delayed justice to the chief plotters,”…./

“Barr was confirmed on Valentine’s Day 2019. In the year since Barr’s confirmation, conservative stalwarts from Roger Simon to Sean Hannity have sung the praises of Barr and his deputy, John Durham, all but guaranteeing criminal indictments any day now against senior members of the Obama administration (which had spied on Trump’s campaign and colluded with multiple foreign actors to subvert American democracy, both before and after the 2016 election)”…/.

“Skeptical conservative voters were admonished to be patient, and that the likes of Comey, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, and Brennan would soon be charged for their crimes and jailed. Yet, amid the frantic waving of pom-poms, something perfectly predictable happened on the way to the Deep State’s day of reckoning. The days turned to into weeks, the weeks into months, and now a full year.”

Still waiting, and waiting!

Maybe the one thing that will shock the conscience in the end is that there will be no accountability for it all? America that cannot be, can it?

Smooth Swamp Operator

Deep in the vestiges of the habitat known as the DC Swamp, trolls the last remnants of this dynasty like no other. They were bathed, baptized and weaned into the Swamp culture. It was their established ecosystem.

Every region has its own tales, either myth or legend, of all sorts passed down through local residents. No one may know the exact source of these stories. What is important is that they are — or in the words of locals, that the stories themselves exist in fact or fiction for each person to make his/her judgment as to legitimacy.

Taken with a grain of salt, or swallowed in whole detail, it is up to each to accept, reject or dismiss these taller than life tales. Some people reserve judgment and would rather not say one way or another. Some people are quick to pronounce a verdict or their own theories about them. But most at least have heard of the legends.

The mystique about them seems to take on a subculture of its own. In some cases, they are only tall tales started by someone sometime. In other cases, there is substance as basis for them. Some were jokes and others were far from it. It really is a mixed bag. These tales live on to become part of the heritage of locals.

But in one such case, at least, there have been rumors and stories for decades that were not completely confirmed. All of them revolved on the very idea of a Deep State working on its own will within, which permeated the basin known as the Swamp in DC.

Many of us believed in the idea and many rejected it with a vengeance. But it was a topic of debate based largely on hearsay evidence and speculations. Opinions ran the gambit from belief to absolute denial. And those of a particular view were branded conspiracy theorists or tin-foil hat dupes. It was seen more like taboo or voodoo.

But in this type of debate there never really was a right or wrong view. All were welcomed and were all treated with a fair amount of skepticism – from deniers to theorists. No one could claim victory with certainty.

That is until recently. No longer can the topic be only dismissed out of hand. But a conversation about it all has still not been forthcoming. I wonder why?

Well, old habits die hard. Old opinions have deep roots with tenuous attachments it turns out. It is hard to dismiss something you have vehemently denied for decades, much less dignify it by talking about it. It is rather inconvenient for deniers to admit to. No one relishes being duped. Some can simply pretend it has not been exposed. Now the truth is finally out there.

But ironically within, for the group that makes up this network of Deep State, everyone knows how real it all is along with how much power it wields. That is not disputable. In fact that is the whole point of it all. There is a collective pride knowing they are the movers and shakers who matter in the realm of power. Even creatures of the swamp know their own habitat. And they know it well.

No one would ever convince this Deep State they did not exist or were not a real power. They would chuckle at the denial. It would not be controversial to them. They see constant proof of their affect and thrive on it. The more overt proof is the more pride in it.

And the only thing that could threaten them, or the habitat that spawned them, was a negative outside force opposed to their existence. One cannot oppose something if one does not acknowledge it is there. Confronting it was never something anyone was willing to do before. That really was taboo. After all, Deep State has the means to fight back and is quite willing to use it.

The swamp has its own scorekeepers and enforcement mechanisms. It is a sovereign environment where the only enemies are outsiders who might venture across its path. Deep State deals with opponents the way it sees fit. When you are the enforcers, you are granted special privileges. But their first priority is always to protect the ecosystem of the swamp. Thus, it becomes a self-supporting, independent environment of its own, accountable really to no one – especially outsiders.

How could anyone even contemplate dismantling it? The Swamp would evolve to suit its own survival whenever threatened anyway. No doubt many who did venture across its path just decided to leave well enough alone. Plus any other outsiders would not necessarily believe in one’s dilemma. That would be to admit it exists, which people were not willing to do. (Openly at least)

Along came the movement and then presidency of Donald Trump. They had no illusions about the reality of Deep State or the Swamp. It had been seen in things like Benghazi and was working its will in the Hillary server and ‘pay to play’ investigation. It was behind the scenes in the IRS scandal targeting conservatives. And we just knew, without doubt, which political side it was really on. It never seemed to oppose Democrats. It always covers for them. Nope, no questions about its existence.

The further Trump’s campaign went the more obvious the power and influence of Deep State became. And when he was elected, all hell really broke loose including a prepackaged insurance policy designed to blow up his presidency. It not he has the final say.

The beauty of their system is it is hard to point to one culprit when it is coalition of now radicalized operators within, skilled in the arts of using government for their own swampy interests, to serve their personal gains.

The smooth swamp operator is the combined concert of parts and people serving the political interests of the Swamp. Besides, when would the ecosystem that created it all, in their various capacities, ever fight back against the habitat? So they confidently troll on.

Pre-rebuttal of the IG Report

Leaks, lies, coups and liars’ legacies = just some procedural Bullshit?

Incidentally, if you don’t like the word bullshit then you may elect to skip this piece.

When is enough enough? Let me start by writing backwards, the way government usually does things. (in reverse) Starting with a premise and working backward to origination.

Synopsis: media has broken their cone of silence to actually talk about the upcoming IG Horowitz. Until now that has been a forbidden topic of conversation. Now, armed with numerous leaks, I presume they’re trying to manipulate our expectations for the report.

At first it seemed like they were just trying to get out ahead of it for damage control, to spin the outcome and temper our expectations. But now it looks like there may be something to what they are saying. (even if they’ve been in denial for 3 years.)

Then this report only becomes part of the cover-up.

Cut the bullshit:: This is a government report justifying what government did.

We should be clear on that. It’s what government does. And when government covers up for itself, it is doing what government does. When regular people do that, it is called a cover-up – considered worse than the crime in many cases.

All definitions from here on go into the trashcan – other than for bullshit. They, government, can alter or rewrite definitions as they go. The word ™*They in this form shall stand for government… or big, Deep State government.

Let me say this is not about the why *They did what *They did — other than the original investigation — but about what *They did. I think the motives are self-evident. *They, as in government, includes the head of the administration apparatus at the time, Obama.

Leaks of the document are flowing out daily.

They come from somewhere. You have to assume from within the *They apparatus. Reporters and MSM are only to happy to put them out there. (apparently sanctioned) Something about toning down or lowering expectations, I presume.

The conclusions of the report leaked out basically say the Trump investigation was justified from the onset. That the Carter Page probe was justified. But that there were some departmental problems, which he is going to point out, including how the “lower level” lawyer under James Baker altered FISA documents. Nevertheless, it did not change the outcome of this justifiable investigation, or its merits. Chew that slowly.

Yet there is no underlying problem with the integrity of the investigation itself, only some processes of it. Gee, and downhill from there on it goes. This starts to sound like every other “report” that has come out prior. But look at the accusations flying about everything Trump does. Put common sense aside.

In other words, what they are saying – if the report verifies it — is that the report is basically inconsequential as to the outcome of this Hoax. It is only relevant so far as procedural errors it quibbles with. But if it validates that the cooked up investigation and subsequent deep state coup was justified, then it becomes a part of the substantiation of the whole thing. See how this works? This IG look-see validates what *They did.

So unofficially, this IG Report could be called the cleanup detail of DOJ. One of the major problems it has is being released smack in the middle of an impeachment process. Whatever you think of the latter… and what a long winding road that has been: filled with innuendo, lies, dirt-digging politics and conspiracy theories etc. (dirt digging on Trump)

Maybe all we have witnessed to now is a natural byproduct of the “fundamental change” Obama promised. It certainly appears that way.

Now that they know *They can operate this way and have sweeping influence, it sets a precedent for future coups or phony investigations. Proof that it all works and can be very effective – even using CIA sources. Do you really think it is only Trump who would be subject to this radical insurrection of an interconnected cabal? Think again.

Imagine the extreme irony of Democrats doing a major investigation and impeachment process over digging dirt on a political opponent… while what they have done for 4 years was a political dirt-digging operation on a candidate and then a president.

This whole thing combined is nothing more than an effort to bring down the President, and all it has ever been for three years. Now they bring in the IG of itself, to justify itself, by posing as an independent critic of itself. And all predicated on grade-A BS.

Of, by, and for Deep State

Our government was weaponized against a political opponent. Obama politicized it entirely and then it naturally became weaponized. The problem for Democrats is that it was not politicized or weaponized by Trump. We know the beginning, the means, and the desired outcome — none of which aligns with Trump’s objectives.

Isn’t it extremely odd that no one would pay any attention to Ukraine before? You could not force media/coverage to talk about Ukraine. Why? The many tentacles DNC and Democrats had working in Ukraine. To even mention Ukraine was labeled a conspiracy theory. Ukraine itself was branded as a conspiracy. Now Ukraine is elevated to the most important place at the intersection of corruption and politics, at the most critical time in national politics. But Trump didn’t do all that.

Isn’t it also funny that after the Trump rally in Florida, the media is squealing like stuffed pigs about the president’s use of the word Bullshit? Yet it is the one word in our language that could possibly encompass all *They and their media allies have done to him and our last election. That word cuts through the smoke and mirrors.

And still the only thing that matters to these people is the next election, and defeating Trump. That government is still politicized and weaponized, ready and available. Media is still *Its biggest ally. Democrats are still engaged in election politics against their political opponent – and wiling to use any means at their disposal against it. (that opponent has also become the people, as it always does!)

Then came the IG report that media spins as an expected barn-burner that isn’t. Apparently they got their way. The report they refused to acknowledge as necessary or meaningful before, suddenly now becomes a central asset to knock down any “conspiracies” about what really took place in the 2016 election. (the truth)

According to these media reports: the Counterintelligence investigation on Trump was properly predicated and properly launched. So the rest is justified history.

That means it is 4-500 pages of meaningless procedural minutia that did not generally affect the overall investigation. Thus, the investigation was credible while there are outstanding procedural, process problems. That concept needs some explaining.

Message: nothing to see here. Move along. Government was justified in its overreaching investigation which turned into a full-blown bloodless coup. More CYA for the cover-up.

Even the Bullshit is getting old — calling a spade what it is, and an IG Report what it is.

Restorative Injustice

In keeping with the question theme lately, I’ll toss another one out there.

When did US policy become protecting corruption and the corrupt?

I could probably write a whole paper on that one, but it is self-evident.
Think about that one the next time you hear of “restorative justice.”

Along with this asinine jackknife of justice, when before in history has impeachment actually been the “cover up,” instead of the consequence for corruption?

Hey hey, ho ho…….

Headed For Disappointment?

With all the political flares going off and the long awaited IG Horowitz report due out in a month, are we headed for a disappointment? I would hate to see the odds on that.

On Friday, two Ukrainians were arrested for election fraud, who were also associates of Rudy Giuliani. Already the attempt to connect him to any crimes is escalating. What’s new?

The Horowitz report is supposed to be shocking. I’ve heard every adjective imaginable to describe it as something that will shock the conscience. But I wouldn’t bet on that. I mean what could really shock the public’s conscience anymore? So that seems a bit overplayed.

The “conscience” is a very high bar.

But in the worst case scenario, Horowitz’s report does not go far enough and deep enough, then it could really be dismissed with a yawn. My bet is more on that. After all, there is another investigation led by Durham already cranked up which is supposed to be a deep dive. I expect the IG to take a pass to divert and fall short in view of that.

We seem to have been handed one disappointment after another on these investigations and probes since Hillary emailgate. Actually since Benghazi. The record is clear that Deep State has a way of covering up its tracks and protecting its own.

I think we could compare it to wild fires in California or out West. When they appear out of control and spreading, people who live there feel at a loss for what they can do. The same feeling could apply to the Deep State corruption and coup. At least with the fires you have hundreds of people working on them and putting them out is the only goal.

So judging by all this reaction to any real investigations, it seems like Trump has been the only person who could have brought this out and stirred it all up. But the mission has to be completed. That will take some creativity.

Disappointment my be right around the corner but the mission still goes on.

Breitbart Exclusive: Stephen Miller

Presidential adviser Stephen Miller was interviewed by Breitbart on Sunday.
Here is one snippet.

“The last point I’ll make about this is the why,” Miller said. “Why? Because this president dared to disrupt two-party betrayal of the American people over many decades: betrayal on trade, betrayal on China, betrayal on foreign policy, betrayal on our southern border, betrayal on our economy, decade after decade, year after year, administration after administration. This president dared to stand up to defy that betrayal — was elected to end that betrayal — but the people who profited like parasites off of that betrayal are now the ones trying to prevent him from executing the agenda that the American people installed him to execute. That’s the situation we find ourselves in today.”

Crowd Sourcing Surveillance Information

Sharyl Attkisson has turned to crowd sourcing to find the culprits. Nothing like getting that big, cold wall from the government when private citizens want justice.

$50,000 Whistleblower Award Offered in Unlawful Government Surveillance Case

May 30, 2019 by Sharyl Attkisson | Sharyl Attkinson

Reward: Up to $50,000

Many of you are familiar with the forensically-proven Government spying on me and my family. It’s one of multiple documented surveillance abuses by our Government.

Unfortunately, the Department of Justice refuses to act on the forensic evidence, investigate its own, and punish those responsible. The only option left for ordinary citizens who are targeted for abuse is to self-fund a fight for justice in court. I’m now in year four of my fight.

Even here, the battle is daunting. The Government holds the evidence, the Government uses our tax money to withhold the evidence, then the courts declare the case cannot go forward because we cannot list the exact names of the federal agents responsible— names which only the Government knows.

Today, we are announcing a substantial monetary reward, up to $50,000.00, for anyone providing information that helps us identify names of those responsible for the Government surveillance operation against me. * …./

See: https://sharylattkisson.com/2019/05/50000-whistleblower-award-offered/

It’s a shame it comes to this and seems that this is what it takes, if anything can reveal it. Funny how you never hear squat from Libs about this case. Actually, they criticize her as if it were her doing, or she is to blame. Or they deny it completely. But it happened and, as the story goes, if it can happen to her it can certainly happen to anyone.

Hillary’s Deep State Of Denial Surfaces Again

On September 17, 2018, Hillary went out to complain about her favorite topic.

“Our Democracy Is In Crisis”

“…republican Party, whose “increasing radicalism and irresponsibility” got the country to where it is and put Trump in the White House.”

“Trump and his cronies do so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track,” Clinton writes. “I think that may be the point — to confound us, so it’s harder to keep our eye on the ball. The ball, of course, is protecting American democracy. As citizens, that’s our most important charge. And right now, our democracy is in crisis.”

Do try to keep up. We give it our best effort, despite her smokescreens. This is Hillary’s and Democrats’ resistance war on democracy, refusing to accept legitimate election results. Yet she complains about democracy in crisis? She wants to protect democracy?

She has done everything possible in the last 3 1/2 years to destroy democracy.

Now, after the Mueller Report, she couldn’t wait to jump in as Hypocrite of The US — HOTUS –- and self-anointed flame thrower of the Left.

Beginning not the end — media event.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is only the beginning of a reckoning on election meddling, not the end, and “raises some serious questions,” Hillary Clinton said Tuesday.

If elected officials believe that he did [commit high crimes and misdemeanors] “then I think it is the obligation of Congress to put forward the articles of impeachment,” Clinton said at a … NYC Time 100 Summit, where she called for the full, unredacted report to be released.

Clinton also said the Department of Justice’s stance that a sitting president can’t be indicted benefited Trump.

I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted,” she said.

I think everything points to you, Hillary. How can you deny that? She is guilty of everything they were trying to hang and frame on Trump, and more.

Then she penned a WaPo op-ed of advice on how to respond.

“But it [Mueller Report] is a road map. It’s up to members of both parties to see where that road map leads — to the eventual filing of articles of impeachment, or not. Either way, the nation’s interests will be best served by putting party and political considerations aside and being deliberate, fair and fearless.”

She seems to think revenge is best served hot. There’s the “road map” thing again. Honk if you saw that one coming. It sure is getting a lot of mileage with Democrats. That’s the yellow brick road to impeachment, or whatever you want to see it as. Fair?

“Second, Congress should hold substantive hearings that build on the Mueller report and fill in its gaps, not jump straight to an up-or-down vote on impeachment. In 1998, the Republican-led House rushed to judgment. That was a mistake then and would be a mistake now.”

So keep building your Tower of Babel. Keep ripping and tearing at anything you can.

“Third, Congress can’t forget that the issue today is not just the president’s possible obstruction of justice — it’s also our national security. After 9/11, Congress established an independent, bipartisan commission to recommend steps that would help guard against future attacks. We need a similar commission today to help protect our elections. This is necessary because the president of the United States has proved himself unwilling to defend our nation from a clear and present danger.

It was just reported that Trump’s recently departed secretary of homeland security tried to prioritize election security because of concerns about continued interference in 2020 and was told by the acting White House chief of staff not to bring it up in front of the president. This is the latest example of an administration that refuses to take even the most minimal, common-sense steps to prevent future attacks and counter ongoing threats to our nation.” …/

”It’s critical to remind the American people that Democrats are in the solutions business and can walk and chew gum at the same time.”

We need to protect our elections from you. Your five-alarm fire no one heard.

Does she have some nerve? Lecturing Trump on failures to keep the country safe when Obama was AWOL on all of it. She dithered in the wings. Obama was the president when all this Russia meddling , and Russianeering, went on. Solutions, don’t make me laugh.

Oh, she was a part of it. She and Obama thought they could tie their Russia problem around Trump’s neck and that would be that. Now she wants another commission? How about instead of that, we look into what Hillary, her campaign and the maestro of dark arts, Barry, did about the Russia meddling problem as it happened?

Then look at what his administration officials did to assail the problem. Of course then we will see what Obama’s administration did against Trump – and didn’t do against Russia. Something never done before, aiming the entire intelligence apparatus on Trump.

“We have to get this right. The Mueller report isn’t just a reckoning about our recent history; it’s also a warning about the future. Unless checked, the Russians will interfere again in 2020, and possibly other adversaries, such as China or North Korea, will as well. This is an urgent threat. Nobody but Americans should be able to decide America’s future. And, unless he’s held accountable, the president may show even more disregard for the laws of the land and the obligations of his office.

Beaming from her mount hypocrisy. Get it right, when they made all but certain people, including media, had gotten it all wrong until now? Get the injustice right?

A reckoning but she doesn’t want the real truth out. She wants a complete cover up of what she and Obama did to try to undermine our election. Russia couldn’t do what Hillary did. Maybe they should have worried about the Russians instead of trying to use them as hand towels for their plot? Urgent, it is urgent now? Partners in crime.

Right, no one but Americans should decide our elections. And we did! But you couldn’t accept the results. Your plan fell short. So then came the sedition of you and your Deep State allies afterward. You had to keep all the pressure on Trump as a diversion.

Holding Trump “accountable,” for what, winning an election? He didn’t do that. And Americans decided the election not Russia or Putin. But nice try.

Disregard for the laws of the land? You can show no more disrespect or disregard for the law of the land than not accepting the election results. Let’s not even discuss your other careless disregard for laws of the land, your effort to circumvent them, and your egregious obstruction of justice. That is when justice officially died. It was already on its deathbed, but you gave it the last push.

Then you acted as if you were the victim all along, rather than chief offender of lady justice. Your husband on a tarmac meeting Loretta Lynch was yet another sinister highlight on your trail to guarantee that the injustice occurred.

Finally she lectures on:

“A crime was committed against all Americans, and all Americans should demand action and accountability. Our founders envisioned the danger we face today and designed a system to meet it.”

Trump committed no crime here. You did. And that system our founders designed is the electoral college, which you want to abolish. (because you lost an election) Does that make sense? But thanks for reminding us all how fortunate we are you lost the election, even especially with all the Deep State and Obama administration’s help. Oh, and thanks for the helpful impeachment primer. I guess that makes you the expert.

Democracy is under siege, but guess by whom? Do the letters HRC ring a bell?

Hillary slipped into the Deep State of Denial somewhere in 2016 and never returned, only briefly surfacing at opportune times to target her enemies. But her operation secure.

Open Letter To The Mainstream Media

I write in sympathy to your current predicament. I know you have an extreme lack of credibility and standing with the public. Or maybe you are still in denial? You offend them and they offend you. I know it upsets you.

I feel your pain; but I cannot validate it.

The problem is that it is not Trump’s fault. That must be hard for you to accept, too. Yet it is the truth. Just repeat the words: “our credibility deficit is not Trump’s fault.”

It was not Trump’s fault that before the 2016 election you jumped on the Hillary bandwagon, with no reservations. You were doing her bidding well before the primaries.

When the election did come, by then you had set the perception that she was the winner by all standards and could not lose. Trump had nothing to do with your willful bias. He was not whispering in your ear to give favorable treatment to Hillary, forcing you to do her cleanup and dirty work.

He did not tell you to make things up about him and his supporters just like you all did about Tea Parties. He didn’t choose all your negative coverage of himself and positive coverage for Hillary. That was not in his power or within his influence to do.

He didn’t make you into card-carrying members of the resistance. He didn’t tell you to brand his supporters as racists, bigots, or even domestic terrorists. But you implied they were dumb, uneducated grievance hustlers who were generations out of step with the times. (talk about projection)

We came to the party only to take our part. You came to blacklist us. Sure, you couldn’t quite get the job done, but you expected it to take a toll. To some degree it did. Though you couldn’t defeat or destroy us. After all, you had been trying more subtly to do that for years. But we were not going away. In fact, we were the original resistance. So you fully embraced the banner of resistance after the election. Trump did not make you do that. He only pointed it out. You demurred any criticism because that is the kind of people you are.

We don’t matter. When you ran the daily 24/7 hate Trump media for his first two years, hyping the resistance movement and impeachment, you dug in your heels of sedition. With every leak and anonymous source you could muster, you blazed an historical trail, aligning yourselves with a coup well under way from the first day of Trump’s presidency.

Yes, I can sympathize with your pain and agony of it all. Well, I can because we have felt that prejudice against us from the public for decades. Your part in that campaign against us has not gone unrecognized. We are well aware of it and your attitude against we the people. We know how you feel about the people and flyover country.

We know how you despise the people’s mindset… and their choice.

So when Donald Trump said some members of the mainstream media – not all — were enemies of the people, he was right. We already knew that. You just confirmed it. When you were offended by that comment, it was not our fault. You did it. When you tried to spin yourselves into victims of that remark, it fell on deaf ears because we have always been the real victims of your schemes.

We get to vote, and were determined to vote regardless what you thought of us. See, you get to cast your vote everyday, as the elitists you are. You want to control dialogue and you couldn’t. The conversation went on around you, even factoring in your heavy hand at the ballot. But you could not control the discussion or the election results. So I can really identify with how you must feel. We’ve felt that way for years and you never cared.

Yes, we all know exactly what it is like to be outcast by the public as troublemakers and crazies. But we were not looking to validate our victimhood. We didn’t have to. It is prima facie in any honest assessment. Along comes media now claiming to be the righteous victims of slander, smear or character assassination to vindicate their cause. It is dishonest. It is self-serving, it is agenda driven and, finally, it is very political.

Now you have laid the record bare for all to see. Only you want your trashed credibility back on a golden platter. That’s just not how any of this works.

Worse than all that, you have also lost credibility with the Left, your handlers and allies. You promised and built up their hopes that you would assist in taking down this president.

When the Mueller report came out and didn’t declare the collusion you promised, your radical base of consumers recoiled. Their hearts and trust were broken. So you have lost on both sides, with your enemies and your allies. Hurts, doesn’t it?

That should have taught you something. But it was your stubborn choices you made every step of the way that are to blame, not Trump. We didn’t destroy your credibility. You did that yourself. We only supplied the means. Remember reporters demanding apologies from Trump? By the way, did you ever apologize for the way you treated the Tea Parties? No, it’s all part of the long record now. It lives on to prove to anyone honestly looking.

You are the victims of your own bias and hatred. Thursday will only validate what we all knew. It will expose you for the liars you were all along. But Trump didn’t do it to you.

It might be time to take some stock and dust off that first amendment to see what is really in it. There is more there than your beloved freedom. And last I checked, you weren’t.

Not Just A Conspiracy Theory

In an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump thanks himself for exposing all the corruptness that has gone on in Washington. And he is right.

Much has now been exposed about how big the swamp really is. It is incredible. But for Trump, would we have confirmed all that? I don’t believe so. They were so good at hiding and covering it that they must have laughed at what they were able to do. They could operate almost openly, in front of us, right below the surface with impunity and yet we could not know or prove the extent.

Of course we knew of the Deep State and would find tidbits later but still never knowing the corruption. We were mocked as nuts. We also knew of Hillary’s plans of a shadow government but that too was dismissed for years as conspiracy.

However, this real incestuous apparatus could then be used on anyone. It happened to be Trump but could have been whoever challenged or exposed it. We were at the tip of the iceberg with Hillary’s server. So close.

Not only were we lied to for years and ridiculed as tin-foil conspiracy nuts but in reality it was bigger, more interconnected even worse than we suggested. (if that was possible)

We had a cabal of government within our government. Still do to some extent though now exposed for the network it is. Wouldn’t anyone rather know that there is such an apparatus than denying one exists?

The politicization and radicalism of government was more less complete with Obama. Then he opened and spread access to all the information in their 17 agencies. It would be hard or impossible to stop such a beast once it was in motion. And using its own power, would be capable of defending itself as a whole. This would not require direct orders from one quarter to another, as it was all of the same radical mindset. Preserving itself and protecting its own would be a top priority. Who could challenge it?

Now we have come full circle. How so? Since Trump became president, the left has asserted all kinds of conspiracies starting right from the election. Funny how as long as Democrats controlled the executive branch, even it alone, they posited that this whole cabal within it was only a figment of imagination. On top of that the Congressional allies concealing and covering it. That didn’t require a majority. The left did not have to control Congress once it was all in place. It operated as designed, with impunity.

The idea Trump had or controlled such an apparatus – a part of the resistance – is ludicrous and complete fantasy. It was aimed at him rather than a tool for him. Though how many times did we hear the Left postulate that Trump was now President and disagrees with his own administration? What nonsense.

When Trump came in he probably had no idea to the extent of the tentacles. Rooting it out would not be easy. The key part of radicalization within the justice department had an essential role. Even as a new administration would take over, DOJ could operate as a rogue resistance to cover for the entire cabal. Some of us saw that dilemma from the beginning. What could be done about it? Enter Jeff Sessions as caretaker for it. He did enough to appear to be working while basically not making waves to disrupt it. So did we really have an Attorney General? No we didn’t. We had Deep State as the default AG running the show. They proved to be a formidable force. Even better if no one threatened its consolidated power or existence.

Of course any Republican president would face such an apparatus. And the Left would continue to deny one exists. How much could it be exposed under any other Republican? We may not know but my guess is not to this level. And the longer it could be denied and ignored, the more power it had.

The elements may still be there but diminished in their stealth capabilities. Now it is forced to operate more in the open. It has all become more transparent than it would have been, not a good thing for it. Their only recourse and defense to this overexposure is to investigate Trump and try to turn any of its power against the president.

So far at least, Trump is winning for having exposed it as what it is. But defeating it is yet another matter. Only it’s not just a conspiracy theory anymore.

Brennan Spells Sedition

In one of his latest rants in the op-ed pages, John Brennan laid out his reasons for opposing Trump so venomously. Or he thought he did, for anyone willing to buy his crazy BS.

Vice President Joe Biden swears in CIA Director John Brennan in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on 8 March 2013. Members of Brennan’s family stand with him. Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the United States Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it. (Wiki pd)

Here are a few excerpts from Wa Po:

“Presidents throughout the years have differed in their approaches to policy, based on political platforms, ideologies and individual beliefs. Mr. Trump, however, has shown highly abnormal behavior by lying routinely to the American people without compunction, intentionally fueling divisions in our country and actively working to degrade the imperfect but critical institutions that serve us.”

“His disparagement of institutions is designed to short-circuit legitimate law enforcement investigations, intelligence assessments and media challenges that threaten his interests. His fear of the special counsel’s work is especially palpable, as is his growing interest in destroying its mandate.”

Interesting that a man who claims to want to protect institutions or norms in America so much is the very key culprit in undermining them in 2016-17 — throughout the campaign. The institution of the press, like others, was being corrupted and spoon-fed their own corrosive toxin, which undermined any objective truth in media journalism.

But that guy, John Brennan, is worried about Trump damaging the integrity and credibility of institutions? While he now is fully engaged in sedition, Brennan was even undermining the sacred election process he claimed to be concerned with.

The reason Brennan chimes in on just this topic of institutions was to follow Obama’s twisted and treasonous lead. Obama often rails about protecting sacred institutions from the damage Trump is doing to them. The same institutions that were co-opted in an elaborate Trump opposition and are now incorporated in the resistance. The same institutions that contribute to the Deep State resistance.

Obama wrote in his famous White House exit letter:

“That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.” – [Obama’s exit letter.]

Sounds a lot like the same crutch of criticism Brennan is now using toward Trump.

So Brennan carefully wove a Trump diatribe criticizing his damage to sacred institutions of integrity. Of which we know the FBI, CIA, DOJ and entire intelligence apparatus were a significant concern, along with those who ran them under Obama’s politicized and weaponized government.

Good thing that old reliable arm of the press has given another glimpse into what happened in the 2016 election and ever since.

Are NBC and CNN Paying Off Top Spies Who Leaked Info With On-Air Jobs?

Tablet Magazine

“The first reason, popular on both the left and among the Never Trump coterie on the right, is the assertion that Trump is a dangerous fascist who is on the verge of overthrowing the rule of law in America, an emergency that, if real, might indeed call for extreme measures, like throwing the principles of evidence-based reporting out the window. The problem with this argument being that however obvious and galling the man’s flaws are, no evidence for the thesis that Donald Trump intends to do away with Congress and the courts and rule by his own Trumpian fiat exists, at least not on planet earth. The assertion that such evidence does exist is the province of lunatics, and of people who find it useful to goose them on social media, or take their money.”

“The second reason for the departures from legal, institutional, and procedural norms that propagating a conspiracy theory requires is far more troubling. The lies and misinformation spoon-fed to the press by former high intelligence officials, who are now cashing paychecks from the same news outlets that they partnered with, are part of an ongoing campaign which, if successful, will protect those ex-spy chiefs from the legal consequences of their own law-breaking while in office.”

Chew on that John Brennan. It is hard to ignore countless dark operatives who have migrated from Deep State jobs into the mainstream media. Only last week, Ben Rhodes went over to NBC, as if that was any surprise. Brennan himself got an NBC deal.

“For example, the House Intelligence Committee report found that James Clapper “flatly denied ‘discussing[ing] the dossier [compiled by Steele] or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking of the 2016 election with journalists.’ ” Yet while Clapper may now find himself in trouble for lying to Congress—which he has done before on extremely consequential subjects, like the extent of America’s domestic spying programs, apparently without damaging his credibility as a “news source”—he has carved a new job out of a possible crime. In August 2017, CNN hired him as an analyst, creating the appearance, at least, that the network is now paying him for the information he leaked to them. At the same time, it provides him with a platform to run an offense shielding him from the legal consequences of his actions. Presumably, Clapper will continue to justify his actions as a public official on-air while denying any wrong-doing, and his “analysis” will be presented to viewers as impartial and truthful.”

Also being part of the media organ now shields them of accountability for their covert actions. Remember that leakers are being hunted while reporters who publish it are considered immune. CNN scooped up Josh Campbell, the former assistant to James Comey who bailed out saying he had to leave FBI to speak out in the public square — to protect the institution — also penned a diatribe against Comey’s firing.

These insider additions could be the new avenues for the Deep State ops and holdovers to leak, creating a network for Deep State (and institutions) to channel their latest wares.

“It’s hard to imagine anything worse for a democracy than journalists coordinating with political operatives and spies who are paid by the press to leak information about American citizens. But that’s where we are. We have hit rock-bottom.” [see article]

Slow walking the IG report

So now we know why. As if there was any doubt.

SARA CARTER: Lawmakers Warn IG is Being Pressured to Slow Walk and REDACT SIGNIFICANT PORTIONS of Much-Anticipated Report

by Cristina Laila June 5, 2018 | Gateway Pundit

Lawmakers warned Tuesday the Inspector General is being pressured to slow walk and redact significant portions of his much-anticipated report on the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton investigation.

According to investigative reporter, Sara Carter, the DOJ and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of IG Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s (mis)handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

We knew this was happening; the President even tweeted about this very thing Tuesday morning.

Sara Carter reported:

The Department of Justice and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, according to numerous congressional officials and investigators.

[…]

Another congressional official, who’s been fighting to obtain documents from the DOJ and FBI, said it is no surprise that they are putting pressure on Horowitz. According to the official, “They continue to slow roll documents, fail to adhere to congressional oversight and concern is growing that they will wait until summer and then turn over documents that are heavily redacted.”

Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed lawmakers three weeks ago on Capitol Hill his much-anticipated 400 page report on the FBI’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation entered the final stages.

And it is probably not the last delay. When does it end? Will we get any truth?

Mud boils in the Swamp

Here is my ‘for what it’s worth’ on the Deep State, Russian matrix. I will boil it down to the most simple form, and will not make it complicated because it is not.

It is 7:45 pm on May 21, 2018 and I’m physically ill, really. I have a knot in my stomach that begs for relief and getting more ill thinking over our state of corruption. It’s been bothering me but I have a strong stomach. I’ve handled reading Russian propaganda, the communist manifesto, some of the Marx/Engels letters, reports on Frank Marshall Davis, and various conspiracies. But the daily news takes the proverbial cake.

Now I know everyone else has their own take on the events, connecting all the dots. I don’t mind anyone questioning mine. I could be wrong about a few little things but all I ask is that you consider the scenario. It is different.

But first I want to indulge in one metaphor. See, all these major parts of the whole thing, I ask you to look at them as a ‘vehicle’ — each one as its own vehicle. It is the only way I think it all makes sense enough to explain it. I said it is simple.

From my knowledge of the Russia problem and intervening, or trying to, in elections it is nothing new. (I am not going to belabor details which most everyone here knows) In fact, the Russian problem goes back at least 3 years prior to 2016 and probably much more. We had our European allies tell us what Russia was up to, and then basically laugh at us when we asked them about what we, our intelligence, were seeing in the US. They basically said welcome to our world, you finally took note? We’ve been telling you this for years.

SO the Russia problem was on intelligence radar, and all our allies were aware of it. We were pushing it up to the top and telling top administration officials. Obama even wanted some workable plans. No, he really didn’t because he rejected any options offered for fear it would provoke Russia further. He had no desire to do anything. Remember the telling Vlad to “knock it off” excuse at a Summit. Then public disclosure: he didn’t even want it mentioned, another fear for Obama. Until finally when they were going to dish it out in a Friday dump, in hopes of getting all the media and Sunday shows talking about it. But then NBC leaked the Trump video on that day, which was meant to take him down. In the dust up, their Russia story lost the cycle. Like we didn’t know about it anyway.

Now here is my synopsis about the vehicles. Well before that time, Russia was an internal concern that obviously they weren’t willing to act on. Let it ride. Actually, earlier they had found something to do on Russia, incorporate it with a Trump investigation. It became a good predicate for a reason to investigate Trump. It still is.

The more you hear about Russia, Russia, Russia, it is not about Russia but Trump. The Obama administration really didn’t care about Russia, remember? Obama went out on a WH podium saying how impossible it was to “rig” or influence an election run by 50 states. He wasn’t worried that Russia was going to ruin the election. So he found use for the Russia problem as a vehicle. It provided all the reason for a counter intelligence investigation. That was its use. Like Rahm Emanuel said, never let a crisis go to waste. Regardless what Russia’s intentions were, they had a good political purpose they wouldn’t have otherwise. A useful vehicle. Why did the Russia meddling require investigating Trump?

Just apply that same metaphor to every other major thing. For example: Comey firing a vehicle to the Special Counsel, the Mueller probe is just a vehicle itself, to turn the attention to Trump and his campaign rather than Hillary and Obama’s corrupt cabal. It became a smokescreen.

The FISA warrants and abuse were a vehicle to investigate, and the dirty dossier was a vehicle to drive the investigation and FISA. Russia meddling is a ruse, a cover for what Obama and Clinton and Deep State wanted to do.(more like an asset) And all the vehicles aimed at a coup, after they realized they lost. Why, if Hillary won, she may have even used a Russia investigation to cover for her criminal corruption. (it probably would have worked) And Republicans would have probably gone right along with it. Anything but deal with the truth about Hillary, or Obama’s administration. And notice they carefully avoided the N Korea problem, another thing that would keep any next administration busy, or all the eyeballs of Congress on it, to keep them away from truth and his legacy. Everything had a purpose; all were vehicles for a particular thing. Together they were a fleet.

What has happened, over and over again, is each one of these things is micro analyzed itself in isolation. But the whole fleet his gassed up on a choreographed trip.

One other thing that probably was not factored enough into the giant coup cabal was of public reaction. We were not supposed to know, it was just supposed to happen. Then the vehicles would be spun to suit the outcome, if we questioned any of it. Most people think there has to be a pivotal point to public outrage.

You cannot just delegitmize and undermine a president without a cost. Instead they say Trump wants to cause a Constitutional crisis. Really? Already done. They say Trump is dividing us, they were dividing before the election using an insurance policy to pursue it. They were going to justify it as a matter of process that must be completed. (as long as it went their way) Of course this all means Russia, or the Russian investigation, was a convenient impetus to go after the real target, Trump. Investigation on Russia meddling, but what did it have to do with Trump’s campaign? Take a vehicle, plug in your views.

That’s all they are, vehicles to get to the real destination — Deep State Rentals.

Crossfire Hurricane, indeed.

The Swamp is heavily defended

In this strange upside down and inside out world we find ourselves in, it looks like the Dep of Justice is actually the protector of the swamp. Call it a guardian or caretaker.

Ten years ago I might have mockingly wrote that as a joke. Now I only wish it were a joke. Can this please be a joke or an SNL skit that I’ve seen just before dozing off and having this nightmare? The irony of that is just about as wacky as the very idea. But we don’t get to write the script, we are living it out.

With all the latest revelations about texts, then missing texts, refusals to provide documents to Congress, a former AG meeting with Clinton on a tarmac, to an FBI Director who demanded an independent counsel after being fired, it seems anything is possible. And that is just the point, nothing is normal. My worst fears are real, it is all true.

On a daily basis more comes out. If you thought Deep State was a conspiracy theory, you no longer have the liberty to laugh it off or pretend it is not. There is a conspiracy.

Offended? I suppose so. But if you spent all your time being outraged you would wear yourself out before the whole story comes out. Another issue is the selectivity of news reporting about any of it. They don’t want to. It’s like media is on strike refusing to report real news, instead just making up a convenient story line to suit their fancy.

So I, like so many of us, go from one outrage to the next. I’m sick of the perpetual outrage, sick of being offended to my inner being. I’m sick of the moral outrage when wrong is right and right is wrong. The nightmare is real and it doesn’t seem to be coming to an end. It develops new plots and turns daily.

If what has been happening was supposed to wake you up, well, once you are awake then what can you do? The only people who are not outraged about any of these actions are the left. Their silence about it is chilling.

At the heart of the Deep State is its defense. (and at the heart of the swamp is its ecological, biological system)

The offensives continue on common sense and reasoning. Is it a dumbing down of America or just the effects of politicizing everything? Either way, they don’t want you to know.

At the height of this upside down chicanery, the real truth is crystallizing about the Deep State and those who support it, ie, the media, the left and all areas of the Swamp. When faced with the power and influence of Deep State, we see who is willing to protect it. It is now clear the supreme guardian of the Deep State is no less than the DOJ itself.

I’ve long associated Deep State with bureaucracy and especially the state Department but its tentacles are far wider than that. Now we find out that the protector and apologists for it is the Department of Justice. Who tasked them with that duty and responsibility above all else — like keeping America safe and preserving justice and rule of law — to defend Deep State? Of course that is by default the preservation of the Swamp.

So the effects we are seeing of the corruption that went on is bad enough. Indeed that even penetrated the DOJ as well. But when it came down to exposing it, the DOJ stepped right in to preserve and protect the Deep State Swamp — to cover their butts.

Recently we saw how the Menedez corruption trial ended, in a hung jury. This reinforced the claim that it is very tough to get a conviction on corruption and bribery. Maybe William Jefferson’s freezer of cash would not be a problem now? In fact, that case is now under reconsideration. Jefferson will be released after a judge revised the charges.

The New Orleans Advocate – 10/5/17

The decision marked the latest upending of a political corruption conviction since the high court set tighter limits on what qualifies as an illegal quid pro quo in politics.

In a unanimous 2016 decision tossing out the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that an official act “must involve a formal exercise of governmental power.”

Roberts added that “setting up a meeting, talking to another official or organizing an event — without more — does not fit that definition of ‘official act.’ “

It was recently announced they will not seek a new trial against Menendez.

“DOJ” now stands for Dep of Obstructing Justice. Like it or not, that’s what we have. The old line is that its not the crime but the coverup. The DOJ is complicit in the corruption and in the cover up. But it was supposed to be sacred (neutral) ground that only cared about one thing, justice.

That all changed under Obama. It became the seat of the corruption — the pinnacle. Then it morphed into its defender of record as the news leaked out. Democrats in Congress want to make sure that the corrupt and politicized DOJ stays in place.

There goes your and my nightmare in a loop cycle.

In fact, they tried to make it impossible for Trump and his administration to fire anyone. If you have the president under investigation, it turns out that only makes you immune from firing. But make no mistake who the real guardian-in-chief for Deep State has been.

Add the failures of FBI to do its job in terrorism or high profile investigations. And they wonder why we are losing confidence in the DOJ itself? It is at the heart of the Swamp.

End of Sessions

It has come down to the wire and now there are several (Republican) congressmen calling for Sessions to step down. Tough times demand tough measures.

It is clear that the recusal has really hurt the administration. But aside from that, I know exactly what voters did not vote for and want. That is for the Deep State to run the DOJ and put everything on auto-pilot under the DOJ. That is just what we have – a DODS.

Now we have lost a year. It is great they are picking up the investigation on the Clinton Foundation, Uranium One, and Hillary Clinton scandals. But it is a little late.

We had the DOJ politicized and radicalized in Obama’s term. We had the FBI politicized under Obama. And Sessions, or anyone else for that matter, has done precious little to end or fix that. The Russia witch hunt has been a cover up for all the Obama era corruption.

I like Sessions but he neutered himself and the DOJ. And like Trump’s first year in office, we cannot get it back. Sessions let the hacks and Deep State have their way, He isn’t one who can fix it now. Sad day. Adios Sessions.

Conflicted Nation

Starting with the Trump investigation debacle — basically to retry the campaign and election — we have all the players in position. What do we end up with?

Mueller – conflict; Rosenstein – conflict, Comey – conflict; McCabe – conflicted. But the issue at the forefront in this carousel of conflicts is deciding if Trump obstructed justice? How’s that for a very sick joke? Sorry. it isn’t. No crime… but plenty of ripe conflicts.

Actually, Mueller should never have even accepted the job since a main focus seemed to be the firing of James Comey, which made him a key witness.(a priority of Comey’s to be at the center) On top of all those conflicts, we have all the political conflicts.

Well, the election never ended and the Deep State is still casting their ballots, daily. We have conflicts everywhere with a conflicted, biased media to selectively cover it. Just wait till they get to the Constitutional conflicts.They’re still creating them.

Now we have a nation of conflicts.
