Louie Gohmert Discussing Lisa Page Testimony: “The guilty dogs are barking pretty loud”…


Representative Louie Gohmert appeared on Fox News to discuss the second day of closed-door testimony delivered by former DOJ/FBI Lawyer Lisa Page.  Mrs. Page was the special counsel assigned to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.  Lisa Page resigned from the DOJ on May 4th of this year.

.

One of the more interesting aspects of Lisa Page congressional appearances is the current FBI sending lawyers to control her testimony. Mrs. Page is not an employee of the DOJ or FBI, yet current officials consider her remarks a risk.  We know from the insufferable press conference given by current FBI Director Christopher Wray (following the IG Report on the Clinton investigation), that current FBI officials are working to protect the former FBI leadership.  As a consequence the institution of the FBI is corrupt, not just the officials.

Paranoia May Destroy Ya’ – The Collective Response From the Co-Conspirators…


At first glance saying: yesterday was a very good day, might sound like spin. However, for those who have been frustrated about the lack of righteous push-back from the executive office; the attacks from the former “spygate” co-conspirators might be just what is needed to trigger President Trump to declassify the underlying material.

Consider the tweets from James Comey (former FBI), John Brennan (former CIA), Sally Yates (former DOJ), and statement from Ash Carter (former DoD).

Think about the bigger questions: Why would former administration officials feel the need to engage in such discourse? What exactly does their response say about their personal attachment to current events?  …and more importantly, what do they all have in common?

If you note they are all connected to the intelligence apparatus, and more specifically the well documented FISA abuse, well, yeah, things start making a lot of sense.  After all, at the center of all the intelligence corruption in 2015/2016 is the exploitation of FBI/NSA databases for political opposition research and weaponization.

The over-the-top responses to a meeting and press conference between President Trump and Russian President Putin highlights the extent to which the prior officials have formed all of their defenses around the Russian conspiracy narrative.  They are all-in.

The Russian conspiracy narrative was formed as both their insurance policy against a Trump administration; and a necessary collective defense -passed on to Robert Mueller inc- to ensure an offense was always present to insure their activity never surfaced.

However, in a rather unusual way, an elevated urgency in attack formation by the Scheme Team; their UniParty allies in the DC swamp; and their media advocates writ large; might end up pushing Trump toward a position where he decides to unleash the atomic sledgehammer of truth and declassify material that will finally outline the plot publicly.

One thing is sure, Trump won’t quit the fight; I’m not sure they realize that… yet.  So in an odd way, and specifically because there’s an abundant amount of material available for declassification that can highlight the fraud, I find myself happy to see the increased vitriol.   Example: Think about what would happen if Trump took away the redactions from the April 2017 FISA Court Order/Ruling on the 2015/2016 FISA abuse.

As President Trump noted in his interview with Maria Bartiromo recently, his ‘advisers’ have all recommended he stay away from the ongoing congressional battles against current FBI and DOJ officials.   The one thing that can change the geography of that dynamic is if the schemers (being protected by the career officials) begin taking ground.

One thing is sure, amid the timely coordination between Team Mueller and the former officials the desperation is more visible.  And when an increased desperation is visible, that generally means there’s something closer to the surface that needs to be hidden.

With that in mind a picture is emerging that might begin to reconcile some of the events noted in the past several weeks.

Crowdstrike was an “FBI contractor” in 2015 and 2016.  Crowdstrike was also hired by the DNC, DCCC and Clinton campaign.  The FBI never had access to the servers and equipment they claim was probed/hacked/infiltrated by Russians.  Instead, the FBI relied upon third-hand forensic reports from Crowdstrike to formulate their sketchy conclusions.

If Crowdstrike was one of the ’15/’16 “FBI contractors” abusing the NSA/FBI database for 702, 704, 705(b) (Pages 82, 84) intelligence searches (which were clearly being done for political opposition research), and passing that unlawfully extracted FISA intelligence to the DNC, DCCC and/or Clinton Campaigns, then suddenly a series of events surrounding the mysteriously missing servers begins to make more sense.

The April/May 2016 timeline points to a connection.

Additionally, if Crowdstrike was doing political opposition research via their contractor access to the NSA/FBI database, it would also explain the Awan issue(s) and the motive for the FBI/DOJ to throw a bag over the Awan case.

Remember, access to the DNC and DCCC electronic records was part of the Awan story.  If Crowdstrike was a contractor doing the database searches, and sharing the results with the DNC/DCCC, the Awan brothers would also have access to that information.  This would explain the DOJ/FBI (officials therein) motive to quickly get rid of the Awan investigation, and it would explain why the FBI was never allowed access to the DNC/DCCC servers.  Indeed the sketchy “Russia hacking story” becomes a convenient cover for a multitude of issues.

Again we go back to the single-most-important FISA document that was declassified by ODNI Dan Coats on April 26th, 2017:

(Page #85)

(Page #82)

Just consider those two segments for a moment.  From the spacing of the redactions we can tell the number of queries is in the four digits, ie. “thousands”.  We can also see that 85% of those search queries were “non compliant” from November 1, 2015, through May 1, 2016. [Coincidentally the exact dates later described by the DNC for their hacking issues]

That means 850 out of each 1,000 searches was for unauthorized purposes.  Later, on Page #82, the NSA reports they have no way to know where the information went based on these non-compliant queries.

At this point there’s every reason to believe that Fusion-GPS and/or Crowdstrike are  government contractor names behind these redactions; both organizations using their access to the NSA/FBI database to conduct political opposition research using non-compliant search queries.  Both Fusion-GPS and Crowdstrike were also formally working with the DNC and Clinton campaign.

[It has been reasonably suspected some of the information contained within the Steele Dossier came from these searches; including the wrong Michael Cohen visiting Prague.]

These FISA Court documents are the types of items President Trump can request to have declassified.  However, there is a ‘catch-22’ scenario where a large group of people would not want the FISA abuse uncovered because they would be running the risk of losing a “critical national security tool” if the public becomes outraged.

President Trump would be sympathetic to those concerns and views…. AND, not surprisingly we see evidence of the struggle within former NSA Director Mike Rogers, current DNI Dan Coats, and current HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes.

Connected to the big picture CTH finds it particularly interesting that John Brennan and Ash Carter are railing against the Trump-Putin meeting:

You might remember it was John Brennan, Ash Carter and DNI James Clapper who were demanding that NSA Director Mike Rogers be fired after he informed the FISA court of the abuses and then informed President-Elect Trump of the likely motive for it:

October 2016: On Friday November 18th, 2016, The Washington Post reported on a recommendation in “October” that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position:

The heads of the Pentagon and the nation’s intelligence community have recommended to President Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Adm. Michael S. Rogers, be removed.

The recommendation, delivered to the White House last month, was made by Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., according to several U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

[…] In a move apparently unprecedented for a military officer, Rogers, without notifying superiors, traveled to New York to meet with Trump on Thursday at Trump Tower. That caused consternation at senior levels of the administration, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal personnel matters. (link)

To ensure the NSA/FBI data was not weaponized against U.S. Persons, Admiral Mike Rogers final act as NSA director was to move Cyber Command into the unified combatant command structure of the U.S. military.

Sean Hannity Interviews President Trump Following Meeting With Russian President Putin…


Fox News Sean Hannity sits down with the president shortly after the meeting in Helsinki, Finland, between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin…

The interview is in two segments. Here is part I

Swamp Guardian Chris Wallace Interviews Russian President Vladimir Putin…


The primary guardian and gatekeeper of the DC Swamp, Chris Wallace, sits down for an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mamet’s Girl Personified: “A Brain-Dead Liberal”, A Cliche’, Cue The Audio Visual…


Almost exactly a decade ago, David Mamet wrote a rather controversial op-ed for the Village Voice titled: “Why I am No Longer a Brain-Dead Liberal“.    A few years later Mamet followed up with an excellent book titled: “The Secret Knowledge“.

After a life amid a tribe of toxic liberalism, Mamet began to choke on the inherent hypocrisy of it all.  He began to point out that hypocrisy, causing his tribe to go bananas and dispatch him as if he were spreading Ebola.  Later in his evolution he connected the hypocritical dots to the natural outcomes.  Here is the 2018 version of what he describes:

We should help the Palestine; humanitarian condition; because houses, occupation and stuff. Such as the Palestine, everywhere, like, such as…

When Will We Be Truthful About Bureaucratic Intervention into Foreign Elections?


I really do find it totally beyond belief how even Republicans, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, are coming out to criticize Trump saying Trump should have blasted Putin for interfering in the US election. He said, “There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world.” Ryan So if the emails were NOT altered and the voting machines were not altered, added: “The president must appreciate that Russia is  not our ally.”

The USA has interfered in Canadian elections under Obama to get Justin Trudeau elected, the French elections, and stuck its nose in BREXIT vote threatening the British that they will be at the back of the line on trade for the USA will punish them if they leave the EU. Then, the US got caught tapping the private cell phone of Merkel and all other head of state among our “allies” in Europe. That was quietly hushed up with Germany announcing the NSA refused to provide enough evidence to criminal investigate them. Then Merkel was caught spying on France. I understand if this was a one-sided event where Russia hacked into the USA elections and the USA has never done such a thing. The CIA even practiced assassinating leaders they disagreed with. Hello! What about Project Northwoods when the CIA wanted to kill Americans and blame it on Cuba to justify an invasion? Project Northwoods is even on Wikipedia.

What is fair is fair. This selective memory is really absurd. We have to be honest and call the shots straight up. Even Obama came out and was desperate to blame Russia for hacking DNC files that exposed internal corruption. Nobody ever said that the emails that were hacked had been altered. They were real. Nevertheless,  Obama’s Administration plainly said“We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

So if the emails were real and the voting machines were not hacked, then the issue boils down to whoever hacked simply released emails that were self-damning and the election outcome was not altered by any hacking. The Bureaucracy has the media on its side to constantly portray Russia as the enemy. I have been in meetings asking why is Russia our enemy? Nobody can give me an answer. I state they are no longer communist. That was what the cold war was all about. They stare at me with a blank look in their eyes and finally just say: “Well they are Russian!”

The entire Crimera thing is absurd. If Mexico declared that Antonio López de Santa Anna surrendered Mexico to Sam Houston to save his own life when captured, then they can say his actions were personal and under duress like a woman signing a prenup agreement the morning of the marriage. Courts have held such agreements are under duress and thus void. Was Santa Anna’s surrender of Texas not under duress? Then Mexico can invade Texas and claim it is all null and void. Would the USA not invade saying they are protecting American citizens? That is what Russia did with Crimea and Eastern Ukraine where they were ethnic Russians whose language is Russian – not Ukrainian. Indeed, the former head of Ukraine Yanukovich was laughed at by Ukrainians because he could not even speak proper Ukrainian since he came from the Russian side of Ukraine. He was a Russian Oligarch and that is why they rose up. It was not an ethnic Ukrainian.

The people should have simply voted and Ukraine should have been partitioned down the middle based on language. Anyone who did not want to be on either side should have been compensated and then they could buy a home where they felt comfortable. It would have saved billions of dollars and lives.

It is time to just be honest. The USA plays the same games as Russia and China because the Bureaucracies in each still resent the others. My recommendation! Get over it and move on! Nobody wants to occupy each other’s land anymore. The days of empire building are long gone.

Bureaucracy & the Collapse of Empires, Nation, City-States & Corporations


COMMENT: Sir,

Your blog about the “Deep State” being nothing more than the bureaucracy made me laugh. If memory serves, didn’t some of the Chinese dynasties implode because of bureaucracies? Or am I being nearsighted and all governments typically implode because of bureaucracies? On a fractal level, don’t all corporations implode because of their bureaucracies over time?

Working in the medical field, the rank and file have a very high distaste for the epitome of the bureaucrats, the hospital administrators. One of the pitfalls of the bureaucracy is there is NO feedback loop. They make the rules but do not have to live them. I found that bitching doesn’t make them change their rules but a strategically timed call at 2-3 am to discuss the shortcomings of their boneheaded decisions typically does.

So how do we, joe public, call the government bureaucrats at 2 am in the morning? Voting for Britexit? Trump? Will they listen?

Keep up the good work and hope to finally meet you in Nov.

DK

Rules of Bureaucracies
1) The first thing you do is assign blame. Do not fix the problem, but make sure that blame is assigned. Remember if you fix the problem, your job is at risk.
2) Assign your work to someone else
3) Vote/assign yourself salary raises and as many perks as you can get.
Perhaps you and the readership of your blog can finish out the list.

REPLY: Corporations also fail when the board replaces the creators, abandon imagination, and proceed to comply with all the rules so they are run by the lawyers and accountants. I have found it very frustrating getting called in when they have a crisis that they create by mismanagement. The profit margins have to expand to cover the costs of waste by mismanagement. The Deep State is indeed the bureaucracy. Just look at Brussels. They are waging a fight against anything that would undermine the euro, not to further the living standards or expand the economy of Europe. It has now turned all around and the primary goal is to preserve the EU bureaucracy. They now are defending their jobs. People think there is some global conspiracy. These people cannot even run their own state no less agree to hand power to yet some other mythical super group lurking behind the curtain.

I have been called in to probably more central banks than anyone. The ONLY reason I am called in is because they UNDERSTAND we are INDEPENDENT and our computer is not biased. They want real live forecasts, not politically correct forecasts they pay to publish as propaganda. If they were 100% in absolute command, they would NEVER call us in to begin with

Debrief on Trump-Putin Presser – There are High Crimes to Be Hidden, and Trillions Still at Stake…


Last Friday, in a carefully timed construct, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivered a purely political statement to the media under the auspices of indictments against 13 Russians. Make no mistake, the entire construct of Mueller’s team project; and the enabling of Rod Rosenstein; was intended to do what it has been doing for over a year, diminish, disrupt and eventually stop President Trump.

President Trump remains an existential threat to the business interests within the apparatus of professional politics. Additionally, candidate Trump defeated the professional political class despite the stunningly Machiavellian surveillance schemes of the deep administrative state which supports the corrupt enterprise within it.

The Friday objective of team Mueller/Rosenstein, which includes hundreds of career left-wing DC bureaucrats/officials behind them, was to paint President Trump into a corner ahead of his meeting with Russian President Putin. The media wing of the intransigent state would then use the ridiculous indictment to frame the preferred narrative and remain on offense against President Trump.

Here is where we watch the echo-chamber media wash, rinse and repeat the same ‘Gruberism‘ mistake. The architects of the administrative state are counting on being able to manipulate the “stupidity of the American voter“, again.  What everyone forgets about that time in 2010, is that 70% of the American voters knew exactly what the Gruber schemes were.  Hence in November of 2010 the largest political reversal of elected DC officials took place.  The usurpers were “shellacked“. Bigly.

Things are never as they appear projected by the echo-chamber media apparatus.

With that in mind, just like November 2010, the November 2016 election proved the U.S. electorate are very much awake and aware of what has been transpiring within the administrative state for several years. Again, bigly.  Americans are born with liberty in their DNA, a conscious orientation to reality, and a very healthy skepticism toward big, institutional and corrupt government.

Despite our militant cynicism we are continually underestimated and it becomes rather silly to watch Toto Trump pull back the curtain as those like Mueller and Rosenstein shout even louder into their microphone.  The majority of Americans, far more than the professional political class will accept, clearly see the constructs of fraud and deceit as they transpire.  Despite the best efforts of the institutional state, and their media narrative engineers, the majority position is growing, not shrinking.

The underlying premise behind the current voices gasping as the Trump-Putin press conference, is the Mueller/Rosenstein anti-Trump/pro-administrative state narrative du-jour.  There is no Wizard of Oz (Russian Collusion/Conspiracy), therefore the pretext for the Trump-Putin inquisition is silly.  Remove the pretext, pull back that curtain, and the narrative collapses upon itself because it was built entirely around a fraudulent premise.

Believe me, the overwhelming majority of the American electorate see this absurdity.  Those who are at risk; those who participated in the 2015/2016 usurping activity; want/need to deny the majority exist. They are currently in the process of failing:

[…] Make no mistake: This is nakedly politicized law enforcement. There is absolutely no chance any of the Russian officials charged will ever see the inside of an American courtroom. The indictment is a strictly political document by which the special counsel seeks to justify the existence of his superfluous investigation.

[…] Rosenstein made another telling remark at his big press conference. The Justice Department, he explained, will now “transition responsibility for this case to our Department’s National Security Division while we await the apprehension of the defendants.”

Now, stop giggling over that last part — the bit where we hold our breath until Russian dictator Vladimir Putin extradites his spies into the FBI’s waiting arms. I’m talking about the first part: Mueller’s case, the definitive case about what Russia did to interfere in the 2016 election, is no longer Mueller’s case. It is being “transitioned” — i.e., buried — in the Justice Department unit that deals with counterintelligence matters that do not result in public trials.

[…] Lacking the requisite basis to conduct a criminal investigation, the Justice Department used its counterintelligence mission as a pretext for appointing a special counsel. This was grossly improper: (1) Counterintelligence work, which is geared at thwarting the operations of hostile foreign powers, is not the prosecutor work of building criminal cases; (2) not surprisingly, then, there is no authority in the regulations to assign a special counsel to a counterintelligence investigation; and (3) because counterintelligence authorities do not afford Americans the due-process protections required in criminal investigations, the Justice Department is not permitted to use counterintelligence as a pretext for conducting what is actually an effort to build a criminal prosecution.

Now Mueller has taken the next logical wayward step: He has woven an indictment that can never be tried out of counterintelligence work against foreign governments that is not supposed to be the subject of criminal prosecution — i.e., the subject of public courtroom testing under due-process rules.

This is not the way counterintelligence is supposed to work. And the Justice Department knows it. That is why Mueller’s indictment will now be the property of DOJ’s National Security Division, the home of other non-prosecutable foreign counterintelligence work that is never intended to see the light of day in a public courtroom.  (read more)

 

Now We Have Fake Journalists As Well


 

COMMENT: This character who pretended to be a journalist was only an op-ed contributor. It is amazing how so many journalists are using this against Trump. They truly are distorting this event and are fake news.

PP

REPLY: Yes it is really a sad day. I have written OP-ED pieces for the Wall Street Journal. That does NOT make me a journalist for the Wall Street Journal. You would think the press would be upset with someone getting access pretending to be a journalist. This will probably lead to more security that the press will have to submit to. Just totally stunning that so many in the media do not report the truth. Everything has to be slanted. So now we have fake news and fake journalists. That matches the fake politicians who pretend to actually care about the people more than their own pockets and perks.

Some have used the opportunity writing: “Putin … has cracked down on the media in Russia. A number of journalists who have written pieces critical of the Kremlin have been jailed, attacked or killed in the country.” They seem to just want to pretend they are the good guys and have a right to influence people to push their own political agenda. Using this incident with a guy pretending to be a journalist to support themselves is pathetic. Just report the facts without the political bias – that’s the job of a journalist. Ever since the FCC repealed the Fairness Doctrine, we have biased news on both sides which has become so bad it is indeed fake and that becomes propaganda. Trump should direct the FCC to restore the Fairness Doctrine and force the media to be unbiased and always present both sides.

President Trump Face-The-Nation Interview…


In an interview with CBS News’ Jeff Glor, President Trump made several ‘splodey heads when he was asked: who are our foes?   President Trump responded to the question by sharing the names of key nations who take advantage of the U.S.

The usual suspects, the fabian socialists in media, go bananas when President Trump points out the European Union also takes advantage of the U.S.
