On Saturday, January 6, 2018, Newsbusters posted an article about a BBC interview with Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury, which is about President Donald Trump.

Incidentally, the book is currently available for free online. As such availability likely violates copyright law, I have not posted the link.

Nicholas Fondacaro’s article, ‘Wolff Touts Book “Will Finally Bring Down…This Presidency”’ recaps a BBC interview Wolff gave to the BBC’s Nick Robinson last Saturday. Excerpts follow (emphases in the original):

In an interview with BBC Radio on Saturday, Michael Wolff, the author of the dubiously sourced gossip book targeting President Trump, boasted to host Nick Robinson that “the story” that he told, “will finally end…this presidency” once and for all …

Now, all of this is fascinating, it’s an insight, it’s gossip some of it, it may not be enough to stop him from being president. Whereas, the allegations about Russia may be,” Robinson prefaced. “Do you believe that anything in the book will actually change the chances of the allegations of collusion with Russia being found to be true and therefore leading to the impeachment of the President?

Wolff said:

You know, I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect. That, the story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can’t do his job. The emperor has no clothes. Suddenly everywhere people are going: ‘Oh my God, it’s true, he has no clothes.’ That’s the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end this – that will end this presidency.

As retired courtroom lawyer Lionel says, such talk is potentially dangerous:

Incredibly, Wolff told Robinson that Trump hardly has any staff and that he will do little as president. Despite stellar economic results in 2017, Wolff said:

The economy is booming possibly because you’ll have someone who’s not capable of actually implementing any policies or regulation.

In a way, that makes no sense.

In another, such a statement implies that the economy does better with less government interference.

Trump’s insistence on rolling back Obama era regulations has helped the economy improve. Trump was also busy last year negotiating various trade initiatives, such as coal.

In June, the New York Post published an article on coal by Salena Zito, who does an excellent job of covering small town life in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

‘Don’t be so quick to dismiss Trump’s coal mining initiative’ is an eye-opener. For the first time in a decade, a new coal mine opened in Acosta, Pennsylvania. Trump sent his congratulations via video shown to local residents (emphases mine below):

The Acosta Deep Mine in Somerset County marks a dramatic upturn for the area. And while President Trump cannot claim that he brought the industry back here personally (this new mine was already being developed before the election), he is an effective cheerleader for folks who’ve been discounted by the political elite.

“We will begin by employing 70 to 100 miners and we hope to open a total of three new mines in the next 18 months — and that will mean additional hiring,” said George Dethlefsen, CEO of Corsa Coal, which owns the mine.

More than 400 people applied for the first wave of jobs that will pay from $50,000 to $100,000, Dethlefsen said.

In a region where the median household income is $29,050, and nearly 12 percent of the population lives below the poverty line, the economic injection is huge.

It also creates a ripple effect: For every new job generated by the mine, even more jobs like waitresses, hotel workers, barbers or grocery workers are needed to support the community.

Absolutely.

Furthermore, the coal mined in Acosta is being used for steel production:

The coal from this mine is not going to be used for energy — instead, it will be used for the production of steel for the next 15 years. (According to the World Steel Association, coal is used to make 70 percent of the steel today.)

Every single one of us relies on steel in our daily lives. It’s found in our cars, bikes and public transportation. Those wind turbines so loved by environmentalists? Made of steel. The utensils we use to eat? Steel. Medical devices used to save lives? Steel.

Roads, bridges, appliances and even iPhones and computers all contain steel.

Exactly.

This is a great move.

And there is more good news on the coal front. In July, The Conservative Treehouse reported on the increase in American coal exports. This came as news to me:

U.S. EIA data shows a gain of 60.3% so far this year in exports of both steam coal (used to generate electricity) and coking coal (metallurgical coal used for steel manufacturing) as a direct consequence of President Trump’s common sense energy policy.

Interestingly, the largest destinations for the growth in American coal export are the U.K. (+175%) and a doubling of tonnage to both France (+100%), and Asia (+100%). High transport costs to ship coal to the EU are being offset by U.S. coal manufacturing efficiencies and improvements in mining productivity.

Reuters has more:

“Simply to know that coal no longer has to fight the government – that has to have some effect on investment decisions and in the outlook by companies, producers and utilities that use coal,” said Luke Popovich, a spokesman for the National Mining Association.

Shaylyn Hynes, a spokeswoman at the U.S. Energy Department, said: “These numbers clearly show that the Trump Administration’s policies are helping to revive an industry that was the target of costly and job killing overregulation from Washington for far too long.”

Coal could also be a major economic weapon used against North Korea, one of China’s principal coal suppliers.

Recall that China’s president Xi Jinping met with Trump at Mar a Lago on April 6 and 7, 2017. On April 11, Reuters reported:

Following repeated missile tests that drew international criticism, China banned all imports of North Korean coal on Feb. 26, cutting off the country’s most important export product.

To curb coal traffic between the two countries, China’s customs department issued an official order on April 7 telling trading companies to return their North Korean coal cargoes, said three trading sources with direct knowledge of the order …

The Trump administration has been pressuring China to do more to rein in North Korea, which sends the vast majority of its exports to its giant neighbor across the Yellow Sea …

North Korea is a significant supplier of coal to China, especially of the type used for steel making, known as coking coal.

To make up for the shortfall from North Korea, China has ramped up imports from the United States in an unexpected boon for U.S. President Donald Trump, who has declared he wants to revive his country’s struggling coal sector.

Eikon data shows no U.S. coking coal was exported to China between late 2014 and 2016, but shipments soared to over 400,000 tonnes by late February.

This trend was exacerbated after cyclone Debbie knocked out supplies from the world’s top coking coal region in Australia’s state of Queensland, forcing Chinese steel makers to buy even more U.S. cargoes.

I digressed from Wolff. However, he and his fellow ilk in the media deserve to have their collars felt by the authorities. What Wolff is doing with his book and what the media have been doing with fake news could be construed as advocating the overthrow of government, or, as Lionel tweeted, sedition.

This is the best — and most concise — analysis of CBS ever done.

It comes from a contributor to Free Republic. This is a work of genius. Please (click if necessary and) watch:

Wow, this is the red pill of the day.

Some reading this would be delighted if President Donald Trump were toppled from office.

With the recent revelations during the past two weeks, it does not appear as if this will happen (thank goodness), but the coup is real.

In July, I wrote about a South African — now American — Evangelical pastor who held a 24/7 prayer vigil at his church praying for Trump’s safety.

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne is no tin-foil hat wearer. The danger is real.

Cascade Free Zone has an excellent article, ‘The Deep State Coup’, which is brilliantly written and informative. I highly recommend it.

Brief excerpts and a summary follow. Emphases mine below.

The coup has been going on since the November 8, 2016 election. The means and accusations were in place long before then — e.g. the Russian dossier. Note that the dossier is still in active play and old accusations about Trump and women are making the news cycle once again. Impeachment stories feature strongly as do news items about the president’s mental state.

Now:

We are approaching the end of the first-phase of the coup. This is a non-military coup, but what we are witnessing clearly fits the definition of “the overt seizure of the state by an elite within the state apparatus”.

Renowned patriot author and speaker Matt Bracken, in a series of postings and interviews, has outlined the basic mechanics of the coup.   Central figures include former FBI director James Comey and the Independent Counsel Robert Mueller, assistant US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and current  acting director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.  Motivation for all of them is self-preservation.  As we have learned Clinton-World was a very corrupt place and the list of self-serving deals and those who benefited from them includes all of the key plotters.  None of them believed there was any chance Hillary would lose and leave them exposedShe didThey are.

Here is an illustration of the plot:

The Special Counsel investigation of Russian collusion — led by Robert Mueller — has not found the president guilty of anything.

Meanwhile, several Democrats have found themselves embroiled in impropriety.

So have law enforcement organisations, such as the FBI:

Americans of a certain generation have to strip away the years of propaganda indoctrination that the FBI are “the good guys” and look closely at what they do. The DOJ are their partners in all this, together they are the muscle of the Deep State plotters.

As for the wiretapping — the word the New York Times used in a headline — of Trump Tower last year:

This was clearly an illegal use of the most powerful wiretapping tool in the US law enforcement arsenal. FISA warrants were created to help prevent terrorism, not to ensure election of Deep State approved candidates. It has been criminally misused by the Obama administration to spy on political opponents and blackmail them with the illicitly obtained knowledge.

This goes further than deposing Trump. This is meant to also prevent his successor, Vice President Mike Pence, from taking his place:

the Deep State agenda is not merely to remove Trump, but also to remove Pence, Ryan, McConnell and whoever else stands in their way. Discussion of “do-over elections” is a serious topic there, as is simply removing every person until a flexible insider is found to run things.

Good grief. If that isn’t a totalitarian notion, what is?

There are minor — yet seemingly powerful — players, too. Saul Montes-Bradley has a good Twitter thread, excerpted below, spelling edited (photos in the thread):

(3) Two major events occupied out time last year during the campaign: The Clinton investigation over Hillary’s corrupt and felonious handling of her office as Secretary of State, and the,”Steele Dossier,” that abhorrent and at times sophomoric attempt to besmirch candidate Trump.

(6) I have tried to keep abreast of events as they developed, from the collusion of a venal press with the DNC, to the shenanigans of FBI agents in the Mueller probe.

(8) But it is much, much worse.

And all is coming together now.

Let’s bring a few more names to the forefront.

Does anyone remember Aaron Zebley? …

(9) Zebley was Mueller’s Chief of Staff at the FBI before becoming a Senior Counselor in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice.

Before that he was Special Agent of the FBI in the Counterterrorism Division for seven years.

(10) In between his two tours at the FBI, Zebley served as an Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) in the National Security and Terrorism Unit in Alexandria, Virginia.

If he is any measure, no wonder the fight against terrorism was an utter failure for years!

(11) In March 2014, he joined the law firm Wilmer Hale. “Aaron’s experience at the FBI, DoJ and the US Attorney’s Office will add to our internal investigations, crisis management and cybersecurity capabilities,” crowed his new managing partner …

wilmerhale.com/pages/publicat…

(12) Guess who this upstanding shyster represented there?

Justin Cooper

(13) Yep.

The cretin who set up the Hilldebeast private email server in her basement and then took a hammer to the blackberries she claimed she did not use!

The one who handled classified information without a security clearance.

(14) [Zebley] … went from defending Cooper to the Russia investigation under Mueller, working with McCabe and Strzok, who were supposed to have investigated Cooper

Go figure.

(15) There’s always room for a couple more … in this caper.

Enter Andrew Weissman, for one.

(16) he returned to the Bureau in 2015 (amazing how many of these vermin found their way back to the bureau in 2015, isn’t it.)

This time as Chief of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section.

Fraud, mind you.

(20) There are quite a number more.

Like Jeannie Rhea, a shyster in Mueller’s team, who defended Ben Rhodes, finally a focus of the investigation into the “unmasking” caper.

She and 8 others donated to the Hilldebeast’s campaign.

(21) Or Rudy Contreras, judge who presided over @GenFlynn’s plea agreement without telling anybody he was on the FISA court that authorized the tapping of Trump’s phones and God knows why, suddenly remembered and recused himself.

ONE DAY AFTER THE PLEA.

Did he find religion?

(22) And then of course, there’s good ‘ol Bruce Ohr, former Associate Deputy Attorney General, AND Director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces.

“Former” since Trump demoted him four days ago

(23) Why was he demoted?

Oh, well, he forgot to declare a minor detail to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) investigating a tiny thingy called the “Trump Dossier.”

What did he forget?

(24) Nothing much. Just that he had “ties” to Fusion GPS and its founder, Glenn Simpson.
It gets better. Simpson had introduced him to Christopher Steele (though some sources he has known Steele for 10 years!).

(25) Steele, yes, the chap who concocted that abomination paid for by the DNC to smear candidate Trump.

Ohr met with Steele SEVERAL TIMES during the campaign, just as this thing was going on, and back with Simpson soon after the election.

What a coincidence!

(26) In fact, Simpson and Ohr met “around Thanksgiving” to discuss “the anti-Trump dossier, the Russia investigation and what Simpson considered the “distressing development of Trump’s victory.”

Distressing, indeed. And after all that work, too!

(27) But that’s not all.

Who was working with Steele in the cooking of the infamous dossier but Ohr’s better half, his wife, Nellie.

What do you know, SHE was HIRED by Fusion GPS in 2016!

Her area of expertise? You guessed it: Russia, Russia Russia.

(28) Ohr didn’t declare any of this. Oops! Forgot.

It was discovered by the HPSCI, but only after threatening Director Wray and Deputy Dog Rosenstein with finding them in contempt …

(29) And this in spite of the obstruction of … Adam Schiff, who tried every which way to stop the committee.

Uncharacteristically, he is now silent over this.

Cat ate his tongue.

(30) Who else had his nose in this?

Peter Strzokwho interrogated @GenFlynn without a lawyer and without disclosing his conflicts of interest.

(31) Now, as the Dimms like to remind us, there is under Federal law the crime of conspiracy to perform a criminal act.

Indeed, if it turns out that these band of 3rd world misfits conspired to undermine the investigation into the Clinton mishandling of classified information

(32) AND to pervert the 2016 elections AND to undermine the legitimately elected President of the United states, while endangering the country creating conflicts with foreign powers

(33) …not to mention other beauties like egregious violations of the Hatch Act, lying to Congress, falsifying informationthey should be in a world of trouble

(34) Meanwhile, five have already been demoted or suspended pending investigation, one has been recused and, suddenly, it looks as if the … charge against @GenFlynn might well end up dismissed as the only evidence against him is the tainted word of a felon.
Poisoned fruit

(35) What upsets me the most, especially today, is that the FBI these vermin corrupted into a political police doing the dirty job of the DNC, neglected its counter espionage functions and endangered us all.

(37) I said months ago that the Dimms may come to regret ever having demanded this investigation.

It looks like that was an understatement.

They swallowed the hook, line and sinker.

Amateur hour is over.

Somebody WAS looking.

FINIS

Ultimately, the coup will fail. In fact, it looks as if many of the players are imploding. More will follow suit.

We can only hope that they are fully investigated and, where possible, prosecuted and sentenced.

On Tuesday, December 6, Time unveiled its Person of the Year:

Some Americans are less than impressed:

Time‘s editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal wrote a gushing editorial about the magazine’s choices. It begins as follows, referring to #MeToo on Twitter:

It became a hashtag, a movement, a reckoning. But it began, as great social change nearly always does, with individual acts of courage. The actor who went public with the story of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s “coercive bargaining” in a Beverly Hills hotel suite two decades earlier. The strawberry picker who heard that story and decided to tell her own. The young engineer whose blog post about the frat-boy culture at Silicon Valley’s highest-flying startup prompted the firing of its founder and 20 other employees. The California lobbyist whose letter campaign spurred more than 140 women in politics to demand that state government “no longer tolerate the perpetrators or enablers” of sexual misconduct. A music superstar’s raw, defiant court testimony about the disc jockey who groped her.

The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover—Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, Taylor Swift and Isabel Pascual—along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s. Social media acted as a powerful accelerant; the hashtag #MeToo has now been used millions of times in at least 85 countries. “I woke up and there were 32,000 replies in 24 hours,” says actor Alyssa Milano, who, after the first Weinstein story broke, helped popularize the phrase coined years before by Tarana Burke. “And I thought, My God, what just happened? I think it’s opening the floodgates.” To imagine Rosa Parks with a Twitter account is to wonder how much faster civil rights might have progressed.

It just seems one-sided to have only left-wing women on the cover, but Imperator_Rex explains:

Others wondered where the men were — guys like Corey Feldman, who was sexually abused as a child actor.

Time has been a disappointment for many years. Strangely enough, Bob Dylan thought so in the 1960s. He says that if he wants facts, he won’t turn to magazines:

One wonders if he came to appreciate Time and Newsweek more once they adopted a left-wing slant.

Nice unearthing by Julian Assange, at any rate.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has struck again, this time with two undercover videos about the Washington Post.

It seems WaPo management took as long as the New York Times did a few months ago to catch on to the sting:

This video came out on Monday, November 27:

The description reads:

In newly released undercover video, Washington Post National Security Correspondent Dan Lamothe and Director of Product Joey Marburger speak to the paper’s hidden agenda. Evidently, covering Trump the way they do is good business, even though it’s fake news.

Dan Lamothe told two Project Veritas reporters that he thinks the paper goes ‘over the top’ sometimes in its reporting, particularly when it’s about President Donald Trump. However, he said he thought that the New York Times and CNN are much worse in their coverage.

Lamothe, probably not a Trump fan, draws a distinction between the news side of the paper and the editorial side. He said the editorial board is like a ‘god’ in that it is trying to ‘educate’ the reader to adopt a certain point of view. He thinks the editorial side blows Trump out of proportion:

Woah, I work for that place?

He says that everyone at WaPo is obsessed with Trump, especially his tweets. He laments that such an obsession:

draws the oxygen out of the room.

and:

They definitely don’t like Trump…

Also:

I can’t tell you how many times we get an email at work: ‘Oh did you see what (Trump) just tweeted? What are we gonna do about it?

Joey Marburger’s position as Director of Product involves the non-print aspect of the paper. He told the Project Veritas reporter that he talks to owner Jeff Bezos ‘all the time’.

One of Marburger’s assignments was to work closely with Bezos in finding a slogan for the newspaper. Whereas Lamothe finds the slogan ‘Democracy dies in darkness’ over the top, Marburger says that Bezos thought of it himself. When it came time to choose one of three slogans, Bezos decided on ‘Democracy dies in darkness’. Marburger confirms that Bezos is referring to Trump.

At the end of the video, James O’Keefe pointed out that, like other Big Media outlets, the thing to look at is what WaPo does not report. He says:

Democracy can also die in silence.

Lamothe reacted on Twitter:

The next Project Veritas video appeared on Wednesday, November 29. It features an interview with National Security Reporter Adam Entous, who is the main correspondent on the notional Trump-Russia collusion story:

The last part of the video features Melissa McCullough, Director of Newsroom Operations. She cannot stand Trump. The description reads:

In this all new Project Veritas video, two Washington Post employees are caught on hidden camera expressing their biases and acknowledging that the Trump-Russia collusion. O’Keefe also takes a swing at The Washington Post, saying “The media wants me to kneel down and apologize. I will not.”

The theme of this video is:

Entous says there is no solid evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to win in 2016, which is the same thing as CNN’s John Bonifield — and Van Jones, who worked in the Obama administration — say.

Entous tells Project Veritas that the Russia narrative is a:

f*cking crap shoot, f*cking black box … maybe it doesn’t exist at all.

Also:

Our reporting has not taken us to a place where I would be able to say with any confidence that the result of it is going to be the president being guilty of being in cahoots with the Russians. 

McCullough just says a few anti-Trump things then concludes:

I shouldn’t be saying these things because we don’t… We’re not supposed to really talk about that kind of stuff.

So, the WaPo presents news stories but if one only read the op-ed pages, the slant would be really biased:

On November 27, the day the first video dropped, Project Veritas’s offices were vandalised:

O’Keefe has written a book about what his undercover reporters have revealed:

On Tuesday, December 6, O’Keefe won an Impact award:

He also gave a speech:

O’Keefe said that people are afraid to speak up because they do not want to have their reputations — and careers — ruined.

The pressure from media and other elites is designed to intimidate citizen journalists like O’Keefe and whistleblowers.

Thank goodness there are gutsy people like them to tell the truth, especially at great personal risk.

Yesterday’s post discussed the events that took place Friday, December 1, 2017.

Today’s entry serves as an update on the weekend’s news. I won’t be recapping much of what I wrote about Friday, so you might want to read that post before continuing here.

ABC’s Brian Ross

ABC’s veteran reporter Brian Ross was suspended for four weeks without pay for his fake news of Friday that caused the US stock market to dip for an hour:

President Donald Trump was delighted:

But he was not yet finished:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, father of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is a past Republican presidential candidate and former Fox News show host:

This lawyer and writer for The Federalist listed more of Ross’s huge blunders:

Mueller investigation — Peter Strzok

One of Robert Mueller’s top investigators has been sacked from his team investigating the Trump campaign’s notional Russian collusion:

One could not make this up:

 

You can read clips from more articles on that subject here (image courtesy of a Reddit contributor).

Trump chimed in:

Advice came in for the new FBI director, Christopher Wray:

Judicial Watch has been keen for the McAuliffe/Clinton scandal to be investigated:

Their November 21 article begins with this summary:

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 79 pages of Justice Department documents concerning ethics issues related to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s involvement with his wife’s political campaign. The documents include an email showing Mrs. McCabe was recruited for a Virginia state senate race in February 2015 by then-Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s office.

The news that Clinton used a private email server broke five days later, on March 2, 2015. Five days after that, former Clinton Foundation board member and Democrat party fundraiser, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, met with the McCabes. She announced her candidacy on March 12. Soon afterward, Clinton/McAuliffe-aligned political groups donated nearly $700,000 (40% of the campaign’s total funds) to McCabe’s wife for her campaign.

Most Trump supporters knew about that during the 2016 campaign, but it got little media coverage.

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton has been doing great work in exposing Swamp scandals. See here, here and here.

This is very serious. Can one imagine a Republican getting away with such a thing?

Where’s the justice?

Lieutenant General Michael Flynn has been made to look like a criminal for lying to the FBI, but we have senior US officials — present and former — who have committed crimes. The American people are told there is nothing to see.

Congressman Steve Smith (R-Georgia) summarised the situation well:

Trump is, rightly, on the warpath:

Is he having a go at his Attorney General Jeff ‘Sleepy’ Sessions?

Sleepy will be leaving soon, probably early in 2018.

His immediate recusal from this probe, because it was connected with the Trump campaign and he was part of the campaign, caused a lot of grief for a lot of people, including the spring-summer campaign manager Paul Manafort, whom the Mueller team treated terribly — including a middle-of-the-night FBI raid on his and his wife’s home while they were asleep.

What Manafort has been indicted for isn’t even related to the Trump campaign but to work he did in Ukraine years before.

See how justly Manafort has been treated:

Obama still acts as if he’s in office

But wait, there’s more.

Never has there been a US president who hasn’t let his successor be in charge.

But not Obama:

Even if he was only referring to climate change, he should do the decent thing.

On December 2, the Washington Examiner reported:

While speaking to a group of business leaders in Paris, former President Barack Obama said there is a “temporary absence of American leadership” when it comes to tackling climate change.

“I grant you that at the moment we have a temporary absence of American leadership on the issue,” the former president noted, which was met with laughter from the room full of French former ministers and CEOs at the invite-only event, according to Reuters.

Obama also recently visited China:

Swamp tries to trap CIA director Pompeo

On December 2, the CIA director Mike Pompeo — a Trump appointee — was a guest at the Reagan National Defense Forum.

TrumpSoldier has a detailed Twitter thread on Pompeo’s appearance, video clips and still photos included. A summary with most of the tweets follows. I corrected a few original typos below.

The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) sounds conservative until one looks at who is on the steering committee (see point 4), including the CEO/Publisher of the Washington Post, a few Obama appointees, anti-Trump Republican senator John McCain and former Clinton adviser and CIA director Leon Panetta. Fox News’s Bret Baier conducted an interview on stage with Pompeo and Panetta (emphases mine below):

5) Mike Pompeo was going into swamp territory and now everything makes sense to me as you will soon see.

6) The slogan for the RNDF is “Investing in Peace Through Strength” I like Peace through Strength but the “investing” part sets off alarm bells. I am not going to investigate who funds them but I imagine it’s not pretty.

7) The RNDF is an organization that is run by active and retired swamp creatures whose main purpose is influencing and shaping policy.

8) Mike sat down with Panetta and his lackey Bret Baier for an hour and they discussed world events from a security perspective. It was light hearted and fun and that is all part of the set up.

9) Mike Pompeo is relaxed, joking and having fun. Panetta even tries to connect with him as “two Italians”. Bret’s ambush questions are strategically placed for maximum effect.

10) The Triggering!
Baier asks Mike Pompeo about Saudi Arabia: Panetta and decades of swamp failure are brought face to face with the dramatic sudden success of Trump Administration Foreign Policy.

11) Everything was jovial up to this point (at about 30 minutes in) Panetta’s reactions became really serious and concerned and his responses became lectures. An old swamp thing cut off from power flailing for relevance.

12) The Soft Ball
Baer asks Mike Pompeo how he shares intelligence with Trump.

No real answer, by the way. Good.

14) The Ambush!
Mike Pompeo asked about #FakeNews stores regarding the mental state of President Trump: “It’s Absurd” (watch and listen closely)

15) Remember everyone is laughing and having a good time up to this point and on cue as the question is asked Panetta laughs. It was the perfect set up!

16) You can see the moment when Mike senses the trap he licks his lips and smiles ever so slightly. He is ready!

17) Mike breaks character, reveals his power level, and suddenly kills the room! Panetta nervously begins laughing some more to try to lighten the mood. I would have loved to see Baier’s face as he absorbed this stare. I guarantee he looked down and away.

18) The next order of business to to try to get Pompeo to listen to the wisdom of a “very concerned” Panetta regarding the danger of #TrumpTweets

19) #TrumpTweets are Dangerous!
Mike Pompeo doesn’t think so. He uses them strategically.

In fact, The Hill reported on this interview:

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said on Saturday that President Trump’s Twitter habits have actually helped his agency gather and understand intelligence

 “I’ve actually seen it help us,” he said. “I have seen things the president has put on his Twitter account actually have a real-world impact on our capacity to understand what’s going on in other places in the world.”

“That is, our adversaries responded to those tweets in ways that were helpful to us to understand command and control issues, who’s listening to what messages, how those messages are resonating around the world.”

Back now to the Twitter thread. Baier was eager to pursue this line of questioning, even though Pompeo wanted to move on to other topics. Panetta also pressed Pompeo on Trump’s tweets, expressing ‘concern’.

22) Note Mike’s body language and comments he really is trying to politely end the conversation but they keep pushing

23) THE KILL
CIA Director Mike Pompeo reminds old swamp creature (Leon Panetta) that he is a failure and irrelevant.

24) After you are done laughing consider how deadly serious this was. It was a carefully orchestrated trap completely scripted and gamed out in advance and Mike came up aces!

25) Pompeo’s ruthless defense of Donald Trump speaks volumes about his loyalty and dedication to the cause. His defense of #TrumpTweets confirms that they are highly strategic and coordinated with the CIA. This frightens everyone… but us.

No doubt this week’s narrative will be about Trump’s mental health again.

The Left’s dirty game

For over a year, the media and other Democrats have been saying that it was wrong for the Trump team to speak to the Russians prior to the inauguration.

It is legal and something that every president-elect’s transition team does.

As for contact with Russia during the campaign, to date, Mueller’s team has found nothing, except for the abortive meeting with the Russian lawyer. Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner left soon after it started. President Trump was unaware of it at the time.

My post yesterday listed three meetings that campaign advisers to then-candidate Obama had with Hamas and FARC. When he was still president-elect in January 2009, he met with the president of Mexico.

The Democrats — including the media — are being very dishonest with this anti-Trump narrative which is dividing the country.

In January 2017, Obama’s press secretary Mark Toner said there was no problem with the Trump team speaking with the Russian ambassador:

That text comes from the transcript of January 13. This is what precedes it:

QUESTION: — reports starting yesterday, but then more of them this morning, about contact between the incoming national security advisor and the Russian ambassador. I’m just wondering, from the State Department’s point of view, is this something that’s of concern at all? Or – I’ll just leave it there and then follow up.

MR TONER: Again, not necessarily – I’ve seen the reports. I don’t think they’ve been confirmed or corroborated yet. But that’s – as he’s part of the transition team, that’s really for them to speak to in how they are engaging. I mean —

QUESTION: Right, but —

MR TONER: — the president-elect is also engaged on his own with many world leaders.

 

Lt Gen Michael Flynn

Now a word about the embattled Lt General Michael Flynn.

On Saturday, December 2, Trump tweeted:

And:

The Conservative Treehouse has a good analysis and timeline of Flynn and the Russian ambassador, including Flynn’s dismissal. Excerpts follow (emphases in the original):

Many people have asked the question why would Michael Flynn have lied about talking to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the first place?

It’s a great question.

The Occam’s Razor answer is the toxic political environment that existed in January 2017, where the administration was being hammered by a tsunami of media narratives and political opposition claiming that any scintilla of contact with anything Russian meant that Putin and Trump were “colluding” BFFs,…. and Flynn didn’t want to fuel that nonsense.

That’s really the only reason to mislead about Russian contacts.

And/or once Vice-President Mike Pence made the statement that Flynn had no contact with anyone from Russia etc. any contradictory statement from Flynn would make Pence appear compromised; so Flynn had to stick to it without clarification.

Sunday January 15th – VP-elect Mike Pence appears on Face The Nation. [Transcript Here] …

[*NOTE* Notice the narrative questioning at the time (early Jan) was framed that ‘any contact’ with Russians was evidence of meddling/election-collusion with Russians.]

Friday January 20th – Inauguration

Tuesday January 24th – Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn was interviewed at the WH by the FBI.  [Either Flynn contradicts Pence, or he tells a lie, those were his options.]

Afterwards, having received a report of the interview, Department of Justice (DOJ) employee, Sally Yates — since fired — had discussions about Flynn with other senior Obama holdovers still working there. This was what brought about the charge that Flynn lied to the FBI.

Another part of this story is that Flynn had talked to the Russian ambassador in December 2016 about the sanctions that Obama had imposed on Russia.

The following comes from The Last Refuge, the founder and author of The Conservative Treehouse (emphases mine below):

11. So on December 29th, sanctions day, Flynn spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak… Essentially, saying ‘chill out, we’ll get through this’ etc.

14. We arrive at Sunday January 15th. VP-Elect Mike Pence appears on Sunday talks to discuss political stuff and the Trump administration.

15. On that Sunday 1/15/17 Pence appeared on CBS Face the nation (John Dickerson)

16. What does Dickerson start off with? Of course – The Vast Russian Hacking Election conspiracy: “did any advisor or anybody in the Trump campaign have any contact with the Russians who were trying to meddle in the election?”

17. Amid the questioning, there is no distinction between *BEFORE* the election, and during the President-Elect transition period (ie. *AFTER* the election). It’s just one long framed question about “contact” and “collusion” etc.

18. And with that framework VP-Elect Pence says: “Of course not. And I think to suggest that is to give credence to some of these bizarre rumors that have swirled around the candidacy.”

19. VP-Pence says “of course not”, ie NO CONTACT. In doing so, and without pointing out the transition team would have ordinary and customary contact, Pence has now painted Flynn into a corner.

20. Flynn has had contact (ordinary and appropriate contact), but VP-Elect Pence gave an emphatic: “Of course not.”

22. The January 24th [FBI] interview is where the “Flynn Lied” to the FBI came from.

23. At the time of the interview the media cycle was filled with intelligence leaks. During that interview Flynn had two options: Option #1) tell investigators he did have conversations with Kislyak in December – and as a consequence contradict VP Pence.

24. Option #2) tell investigators he did not have conversations with the Russians (Kislyak) and align with VP Pence statement a week prior.

Option #1 puts the criticism and Russia story on VP Pence for lying to CBS. (He didn’t, because the question was vague on timing but that didn’t matter amid the frenzy) and as an outcome weaken the incoming administration 4 days after inauguration.

26. Option #2 puts himself at risk; but protects VP Pence and avoids the immediacy of a narrative against the White House and new administration.

27. Likely Flynn knew the FBI was up to no good because they probably already knew the answer to the question (wiretapping). But these decisions were about politics amid the frenzied media swarm. The downstream sh[*]t-storm on Pence would have been brutal.

28. The very next day, Wed Jan 25th, Sally Yates (DOJ) gets an after action report on the FBI questioning of Flynn.

37. Note the presumption here is that Flynn had lied to VP Pence. However, there is nothing to indicate that angle/aspect is or was actually correct. Specifically, there is ample evidence the ‘lie to Pence’, evolved from a storyline -driven by necessity- to save face for Pence.

38. The administration was now boxed in. Flynn lied to protect Pence’s political posture/integrity/position, (ie. Military Leadership Training 101: never compromise your leadership), but was now confronted by Sally Yates. FUBAR!!

Conclusion — thus far

It seems this past weekend served, in part, as a watershed moment.

As I write, Trump’s Twitter account has over 43m subscribers. Imagine factoring in millions of others, e.g. yours truly, who don’t subscribe but check it at least once a day.

Tens of millions of people are reading and passing his tweets along to millions more every day.

Over time, that’s a lot of red pills being handed out.

Trump is taking this time to get the American people psychologically prepared for The Storm / the Silent War.

I have read several online commenters saying that they never realised how corrupt America is until they read about the Strzok dismissal and the crookedness of this Mueller investigation which, so far, has cost around $5m in taxpayer money.

Meanwhile, actual criminals who served at federal level are on the loose. Where’s the DOJ? Where’s the justice?

On Friday, December 1, 2017, Lt General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

Powerline has a simple explanation of the story, excerpted below (emphases mine):

News media are breathlessly reporting that Gen. Michael Flynn has agreed to plead guilty to lying to the FBI. You can read the Statement of the Offense here. The false statements alleged by the government seem rather pathetic: 1) Flynn falsely told an FBI agent that he didn’t ask the Russian ambassador to “refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions” the U.S. had just imposed, and 2) that he didn’t recall the ambassador subsequently telling him that the Russians had moderated their response per his request; 3) Flynn falsely said that he didn’t ask the Russian ambassador to delay or defeat a pending U.N. Security Council resolution, and 4) that the ambassador never subsequently described his country’s response to that request. (Flynn tried, unsuccessfully, to convince several members of the Security Council, including Russia, not to proceed with an anti-Israel resolution. This is to his, and President Trump’s, credit.)

That’s it, after a year of huffing and puffing. Nothing about the election, nothing about the long-awaited “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia. I have no idea why Flynn apparently lied to an FBI agent, assuming that he did. But the communications described in the information are exactly the sorts of contacts that a national security advisor to an incoming president should be having with foreign powers.

In short, the allegations against Flynn suggest that Robert Mueller has nothing significant against President Trump or other members of his administration.

The following statement is from President Donald Trump’s lawyer:

This happened after the election, when the president-elect’s transition team initially contacts foreign governments. Obama also did this in speaking with then-Mexican president Felipe Calderon on January 12, 2009, just days before his first inauguration.

In fact, it is alleged that Obama’s campaign team met with Hamas and Iranian contacts in 2008, during his campaign. In March 2008 — also during the primary campaign — it emerged they were in touch with Colombia’s FARC.

ABC’s Brian Ross reported on the Flynn guilty plea, saying that the general was in touch with the Russians when Trump was a ‘candidate’. As Ross’s faulty story broke, the markets fell slightly for an hour on Friday. Ross did not issue a retraction until hours later:

This is what Rush Limbaugh had to say about Brian Ross, who has twisted the truth before:

Later on Friday, The Hill reported that CNN’s Jim Acosta — another questionable reporter — said White House sources told him the Obama administration approved Flynn’s communications before they took place. Also note that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is also mentioned:

The White House said on Friday that it was the Obama administration that authorized former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during President Trump’s transition, according to CNN.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak in the month before Trump took office, the first current or former Trump White House official brought down by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s election meddling.

Court records indicate that his communications with Kislyak were directed by a Trump transition official, with multiple news outlets reporting that official was Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

“They are saying here at the White House that Flynn’s conversations with Sergey Kisylak were quote ‘authorized’ by the Obama administration,” CNN correspondent Jim Acosta said.

“We should point out, that is something that we have not heard before in terms of a defense from this White House,” he said.

The White House did not immediately respond to The Hill’s request for comment.

Of course, James Clapper, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence — and no friend of the Trump administration — said the White House claim was ‘absurd’.

Regardless, Flynn’s conversations happened after the election — not before, as some of the Obama campaign’s did.

Acosta also filed a CNN story wherein a ‘senior White House official’ told him:

“There is no anxiety with Flynn and about what he might say.”

The President “feels sorry for Flynn… I think he likes Flynn,” this official said, adding the Trump is “thinking about Flynn and his family.”

As I write on Saturday (GMT), it seems likely that this story will run and run all weekend long. Trump detractors worldwide will enjoy this, such as ex-FBI director James Comey:

He was quickly rebuked by former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino:

More reports emerged from ABC, NBC (and other news outlets). From ZeroHedge (emphases in the original):

ABC news takes it a step further, reporting from an anonymous source that “Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians, initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria.” – though NBC News reports it was Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner.

I have already gone into the major points of the story thus far, but two of ZeroHedge‘s ‘observations and takeaways’ are worth noting:

  • If Flynn’s contact with Russia was related to “collusion” in regards to election meddling, he would be pleading guilty to an espionage conspiracy, not the “process crime” of lying to the FBI..
  • If Flynn were to now drop some new bombshell about greater Russian collusion, he would have lied to the FBI twice.

The article asks why Flynn would have lied and offers these possibilities:

Why would Flynn lie about his contact with the Russians in late January, five days after the Inauguration? Was it because the nation had been whipped into an anti-Russia frenzy? Or, as some have suggested, does the rabbit hole go much deeper and there are aspects of the Trump-Russia story that haven’t been made public yet? Again, if that were known, Flynn would be pleading guilty to a much more serious crime.

Ultimately:

That said, Flynn is facing a whopping six months in prison and a fine of up to $9,500 for lying to the Special Counsel.

The article concludes:

So – unless there’s more than meets the eye, it appears that the coverup is far greater than the crime in regards to Flynn’s decision to lie to the FBI. And whatever the outcome, the hard bounce in the S&P 500 would seem to suggest this is perhaps another nothingburger and not quite the end of Drumpf.

What follows is part of Imperator_Rex’s analysis (two name corrections are at the bottom of his thread, but I have just used ‘Obama/Said officials’). Emphases mine below:

5. The plea offenses are known as ‘process crimes’, in other words non-compliance with the technicalities of being in an incoming administration.

6. In return for the plea, Flynn will FULLY CO-OPERATE with Mueller’s SC. That’s what this is all about. And it’s not heading in the direction of the Clinton/DNC Trump-Russia lie, that much is certain.

7. To recap : in January 1017, General Flynn didn’t tell the truth to Jim Comey & Andrew McCabe’s clownshow of an FBI, about meeting the Russian ambassador.

Thank God he didn’t.

8. To clarify, an incumbent administration communicating with foreign states, while a lame duck POTUS runs out his or her term, is commonplace & happens all the time. As you’d expect it to be.

9. However, the FBI under Comey & McCabe was a corrupted organization, which Flynn knew well. IMO he did the RIGHT thing not telling them about the communications with the Russian ambassador. It would have been leaked, with the intent of bringing down Trump.

11. [Obama officials] used unmasked intel under a FISA warrant (probably based on the Fusion GPS dossier) to ID Flynn and then leaked it to WaPo, a crime.

[Said officials] also tried to ambush Trump by saying they warned him about Flynn.

It didn’t work. Trump was inaugurated.

12. Trump likely became fully aware of what they did in February, but definitely by at least May 8, 2017 …

13. After his ‘resignation’, Flynn offered to tell his ‘story’ in a public Congressional hearing, in exchange for immunity. This was denied. The last thing those snakes wanted was for Flynn to reveal all on live television.

14. General Flynn knows everything about Obama & Clinton. That’s because he was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, serving from July 2012 to his retirement from the military in August 2014.

18. This plea deal allows Flynn to provide testimony under oath, as well as 24/7 ‘assistance’, to Mueller about EVERYTHING he knows. But it won’t be about the Drumpf-Russia lie. It will be about other things

20. Ignore the crowing of the hysterical MSM today. They have been consistently wrong about everything, because they are basing it all on the Trump-Russia lie.

They are 100% wrong on this, too.

22. Remember these words from General Flynn’s lawyers in March, 2017:

‘General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit’.

The circumstances now permit.

The end.

Some evidence that Imperator_Rex could be right comes from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief John Podesta’s answers to questions from an audience at Duke University on Wednesday, November 29:

The Duke Chronicle reported his answer to a student who asked about Pizzagate and his ties to Russia:

“This is how the alt-right does fake news,” Podesta said. “It’s personally painful because a lot of this is really total bullsh*t. My family and I have been put through this Pizzagate bullsh*t now for a year—which has totally been debunked, by the way.”

“My relationship with the company that you talked about, that was based in Boston, an American innovative company—I totally disclosed [my relationship with it]. Fox [News] has had to correct that twice,” he added in response to Kiprilov’s question. “I could go down the rest of your list. I have no relationship to the Podesta Group and haven’t for 15 years. You can stick with it. The one thing I will tell you is you have a lot of company on Twitter and on the internet, so have at it.”

The student told the Duke Chronicle (emphases mine):

“Pizzagate was a conspiracy theory, but the other allegations, I don’t know,” Kiprilov said. “If he had been a bit calmer and more mature in answering the questions, I would have been satisfied. I was disappointed that he got so angered and triggered by my question.”

A self-identified Republican who says she is not part of the alt-right, Kiprilov said she felt that Podesta misunderstood the nature of her question.

“I did not imply that I believed any of this,” she said. “I think he immediately assumed I did, so he lumped me with the alt-right crowd, which was very unfortunate that he jumped to that conclusion.”

iBankCoin reported (emphases in the original):

In response to the next question from an audience member about how John feels about his brother Tony Podesta of the Podesta Group being under FBI investigation, John Podesta made sure to distance himself from Tony as he stammered through his response:

“Look I think my brother, uh, uh, A) I’m not my brother. Does it worry me? You know, I, I, It’s, it’s painful. I mean his firm, uh, uh, after many years in business, uh, uh, un-unraveled as a result of, I think of the fact that it was under investigation,” adding that he thinks Tony’s involvement with [Paul] Manafort’s partner Rick Gates and Congressman Vin Weber (R-MN) was ill advised.

Just to be clear, Paul Manafort’s indictment has nothing to do with the Trump campaign, but for Ukraine-related work during his time with the now-defunct Podesta Group.

Podesta then answered a question about Hillary’s defeat in 2016. This is an amazing answer:

Before the night was over, Podesta answered questions about Russia’s effect of the election, stating that while he didn’t think Russia’s efforts to interfere with voting on election day succeeded, bots and Facebook ads spreading fake news did.

Wow.

iBankCoin rightly concludes:

Or, maybe Russian internet bots, Pokémon Go and Facebook ads promoting liberal activism are perhaps the lamest possible excuses for why Hillary Clinton lost the election.

If Mueller finds nothing after his investigation, it will then be up to Attorney General Jeff ‘Sleepy’ Sessions to act like an Attorney General — tough. That is unlikely to happen, however. The Gateway Pundit has a scathing article on Sleepy, saying that he is actually bringing down the Trump administration through his recusal from campaign investigations — which enabled Robert Mueller’s appointment as Special Counsel — and ineffectiveness with regard to the Swamp.

Technically, Sessions probably did have to recuse. If so, he never should have accepted the post. Trump, apparently, did not know until after the fact.

More articles like that and Trump’s base will clamour for Sessions to resign. He never should have taken the job if he planned on recusing almost immediately, then getting a Democrat to be his deputy.

Trump will have to think quickly and carefully about resolving that situation soon.

UPDATE — On December 2, Fox News reported that ABC’s Brian Ross was suspended for four weeks without pay for his story on Flynn:

ABC News announced Saturday that Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross would be suspended for four weeks without pay over a botched “exclusive” about former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

During a live “special report” Friday morning, Ross reported that Flynn would testify that Donald Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy while he was still a candidate. The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.

Later in the day, ABC issued a “clarification” to Ross’s report, saying that Trump’s alleged directive came after he’d been elected president. Ross himself appeared on “World News Tonight,” several hours after the initial report, to clarify his error.

To be continued tomorrow.

It is amazing to still read — and hear — that President Donald Trump is stupid.

My late mother used to say of people who came off a bit dim but always won in the end:

Dumb like a fox.

Trump has honed this persona for years:

As you can see, that photo is several years old. Time has moved on, but imagine how much information President Trump has on a lot of people — and, since he declared himself a candidate for the presidency in 2015, on geopolitical situations.

One of the people who informed him on the latter is likely to be General Michael Flynn, who was part of Trump’s campaign team in 2016 and, post-inauguration, served the shortest tenure of any National Security Advisor — 24 days. He has been under investigation since April 2017.

From Wikipedia:

Flynn was forced to resign as Trump’s National Security Advisor after information surfaced that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.[8][9] … On April 27, 2017, the Pentagon inspector general announced an investigation into whether Flynn had accepted money from foreign governments without the required approval.[12]

Imperator_Rex explains why Flynn matters. Excerpts from his thread follow:

1. People forget that General Flynn is not just any ordinary spook, he’s a MASTER spook, patriot and #MAGA supporter. He knows EVERYTHING about Obama & Clinton.

2. Master spooks like Flynn DON’T make careless mistakes. They think very carefully about each move and they’re incredibly tough, which is why they can thrive in dangerous environments.

3. Flynn, a Democrat, had an incredible military career, lasting 33 years. His honesty about Obama’s bungling and lies over ISIS made him many enemies.

4. Flynn formally joined the Trump campaign in February 2016. However, they’d met early in the campaign (June/July 2015). Trump was an admirer of Flynn, particularly his book ‘Field of Fight’:
amazon.com/Field-Fight-Gl…

Trump endorsed the book on Twitter.

5. Trump is an extremely astute judge of character. He trusts very few people. The fact that he let Flynn into his inner circle tells you everything you need to know – about Flynn.

6. Sometime between June 2015 & Nov 8, 2016, I’m convinced Flynn shared with Trump everything he knew about the crimes that has taken place under Obama. These would have matched or added to the trove Trump had amassed over the years.

8. The idea of an independent SC, led by a swamp insider (Mueller) ostensibly focussing on Trump, but in reality taking down the Clintons, sounds like a masterplan from a master spook. That’s my opinion, anyway.

Points 9 through 12 go into how the media covered the allegations against Flynn somewhat inconsistently with regard to certain details:

How could they be so different?

13. Because that was Flynn’s objective. He & his extensive network were using different stories to identify leakers & their reporter proxies …

16. General Flynn’s ‘resignation’ allowed him to return to the shadows to his trusted network of patriotic spooks, where they’ve been advancing #MAGA ever since. Flynn’s never been charged with a crime, nor will he be.

17. Main point – we need to question EVERYTHING the MSM tell us about @GenFlynn. Leftist reporters believe they are intellectual giants, but they don’t realize how much more intelligent master spooks are, not how their deranged anti-Trump rage makes them suckers.

18. ‘All warfare is based on deception’ : Sun Tzu. An insight Flynn & Trump know well & are executing brilliantly.

The end.

Many are waiting with baited breath for an indictment of Hillary Clinton. Why has it not yet been handed down?

The American public — particularly Hillary supporters — must be psychologically ready for it first. They must be in the thought process of waiting for it to happen. Otherwise, there will be deep discord.

Trump is also trying to dismantle other parts of the Swamp first so that they stop functioning for good. Then he can go for Hillary and the other big fish.

By then, the public — even Hillary supporters — will realise she did something very wrong and must be brought to justice.

Imperator_Rex has another thread, excerpted below:

2. Trump is carefully laying the terrain for Clinton’s indictment, as well as the indictments of many others involved in her & Bill’s crimes.

3. ‘Be before the enemy in occupying the raised and sunny spots, and carefully guard your line of supplies. Then you will be able to fight with advantage.’ – Sun Tzu

4. The key point – the terrain he is preparing is PSYCHOLOGICAL.

5. This requires removing all possible resistance points in Congress, the media, the IC and in Hollywood.

7. It requires the extremely well planned distribution of evidence demonstrating Clinton’s criminality. The intention is to ramp up the volume, speed and intensity until it creates a torrent.

8. NOTHING we are seeing is coincidental or random. It is a pre-planned campaign to soften a population that’s been lied to – with TRUTH.

Imperator_Rex then discusses someone whose interview appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight (Fox News) on Monday, November 27, 2017, someone who discussed Hillary’s emails. I’ll get to that later in this post, but this is what Trump tweeted:

The replies to Trump’s threads say that he is stupid. He is the president. Surely, he is in charge. He can make them do it.

Yet, my mother would have said Trump is:

dumb like a fox.

There must be a reason why McCullough felt safe enough to appear on national television at this time.

I use the word ‘safe’, because another inspector general, Gerald Walpin, was most unlucky. Not only did the Obama administration ask him to leave or be fired, but he was fatally hit by a car in June 2016 in Manhattan, where traffic does not move that quickly.

The Washington Examiner has the story, written by veteran journalist Byron York (emphases mine throughout):

Gerald Walpin, the inspector general who was at the center of controversy in 2009 when he was fired by the White House amid an investigation of an Obama friend, died today. He was 84.

Walpin’s son-in-law, Allan Tananbaum, said Walpin was struck by a car while crossing a street in Manhattan.

Walpin was fired in June 2009 for his investigation of the misuse of money in AmeriCorps, the service organization that was part of the Corporation for National and Community Service, where Walpin served as inspector general. The investigation focused on Kevin Johnson, the former NBA star who became mayor of Sacramento, Calif., and was a prominent Obama supporter.

Johnson founded a school called St. Hope, which received about $850,000 in AmeriCorps grants. Walpin discovered that Johnson and St. Hope had failed to use the federal dollars they received for the purposes specified in the grant

Walpin recommended that Johnson and St. Hope be barred from receiving future federal funds.

It turned out to be an enormously controversial recommendation. As Walpin finished his probe, Johnson was elected mayor of Sacramento. If Johnson had been barred from receiving federal grant money, the city might not have been able to receive a share of the billions of dollars in federal stimulus money being handed out by the Obama administration.

There was enormous pressure on Walpin to back off. He didn’t. On June 10, Walpin received a call from a White House lawyer. “He said, ‘Mr. Walpin, the president wants me to tell you that he really appreciates your service, but it’s time to move on,'” Walpin recalled to me later. “[He] said, ‘You can either resign, or I’ll tell you that we’ll have to terminate you.'”

Walpin declined to resign and was fired on the spot. His firing was a violation of rules regarding the dismissal of inspectors general.

Charles Grassley, a Republican senator, requested information on Walpin’s dismissal from the White House, but none came. Even Democrats agreed that Walpin’s dismissal was outside of the rules, but:

the White House defended its decision and claimed Walpin, who was then 78, was too “confused” to handle his duties.

Byron York, wrote the article for the Examiner, disagrees:

He never seemed confused to me. I reported at length on the Walpin case, and spoke to him many times. Walpin was an extraordinarily determined man, and he placed enormous value on integrity in government. If he found wrongdoing, he was going to pursue it until it was made right. That became a problem when the wrongdoer was a White House friend.

Now on to Charles McCullough III, former inspector general for the intelligence agencies, and to Imperator_Rex’s analysis of Trump’s brilliance:

9. That’s why the McCullough revelations are so important. The man is an Obama Bro with an unimpeachable record. Many Democrats will believe him.

10. Hence Trump’s tweet using words such as ‘respected’ , ‘public was misled’ & linking to Carlson & Hannity. Again, just so clever.

11. Will millions of Obama & Sanders supporters, who despise Clinton, go and have a look to learn more? You bet they will. See, this is a case where they can admit Clinton’s corruption without having to side with Trump.

12. And Trump knows that once he can open that door in their psychology and get them to let some light in, it becomes far easier to get THEM to keep opening the door further.

14. The actual strike against the Clinton crime cartel will happen quickly and surprise everyone. But it will happen. When it does, most Americans will be psychologically prepared.

15. What did Sun Tzu say again? Oh yeah, that’s right: ‘Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.’ The end.

So what did McCullough tell Catherine Herridge in the interview broadcast on Tucker Carlson Tonight?

McCullough, with a career of over two decades of service, received:

personal blowback… to my family [and] my office.

Another Fox News article has more about the interview:

A government watchdog who played a central role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation during the Obama administration told Fox News that he, his family and his staffers faced an intense backlash at the time from Clinton allies – and that the campaign even put out word that it planned to fire him if the Democratic presidential nominee won the 2016 election

McCullough – who came to the inspector general position with more than two decades of experience at the FBI, Treasury and intelligence community – shed light on how quickly the probe was politicized and his office was marginalized by Democrats.

In January 2016, after McCullough told the Republican leadership on the Senate intelligence and foreign affairs committees that emails beyond the “Top Secret” level passed through the former secretary of state’s unsecured personal server, the backlash intensified.

All of a sudden I became a shill of the right,” McCullough recalled. “And I was told by members of Congress, ‘Be careful. You’re losing your credibility. You need to be careful. There are people out to get you.

But the former inspector general, with responsibility for the 17 intelligence agencies, said the executive who recommended him to the Obama administration for the job – then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – was also disturbed by the independent Clinton email findings.

“[Clapper] said, ‘This is extremely reckless.’ And he mentioned something about — the campaign … will have heartburn about that,” McCullough said.

Then:

After the Clapper meeting, McCullough said his team was marginalized. “I was told by senior officials to keep [Clapper] out of it,” he said, while acknowledging he tried to keep his boss in the loop.

There are 22 highly classified emails that only McCullough and a handful of individuals with high security clearance have seen:

Some of those email exchanges contained Special Access Program (SAP) information characterized by intel experts as “above top secret.”  

The WikiLeaks dumps revealed that this was the case:

WikiLeaks documents show the campaign was formulating talking points as the review of 30,000 Clinton emails was ongoing. 

The campaign team wrote in August 2015 that “Clinton only used her account for unclassified email. When information is reviewed for public release, it is common for information previously unclassified to be upgraded to classified.”

Hmm.

McCullough said:

There was an effort … certainly on the part of the campaign, to mislead people into thinking that there was nothing to see here.

In March 2016:

seven senior Democrats sent a letter to McCullough and his State Department counterpart, saying they had serious questions about the impartiality of the Clinton email review. However, McCullough was not making the decisions on what material in Clinton’s emails was classified — he was passing along the findings of the individual agencies who got the intelligence and have final say on classification.

“I think there was certainly a coordinated strategy,” McCullough said.

McCullough did not respond to the letter, even though Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-California) office pressured him to do so:

I thought that any response to that letter would just hyper-politicize the situation,” McCullough said. “I recall even offering to resign, to the staff director. I said, ‘Tell [Feinstein] I’ll resign tonight. I’d be happy to go. I’m not going to respond to that letter. It’s just that simple.”

As election day neared, McCullough said he was told that if Hillary won, he and another senior government investigator would be fired:

McCullough said he was just trying to do his job, which requires independence. “I was, in this context, a whistleblower. I was explaining to Congress — I was doing exactly what they had expected me to do. Exactly what I promised them I would do during my confirmation hearing,” he said. “… This was a political matter, and all of a sudden I was the enemy.”

Hillary’s former colleagues at the State Department also pressured McCullough:

especially top official Patrick Kennedy.

State Department management didn’t want us there,” McCullough said. “We knew we had had a security problem at this point. We had a possible compromise.”

McCullough said that if he had classified emails on a personal server, he would be in a federal penitentiary:

I’d be sitting in Leavenworth right now.

Fox contacted Dianne Feinstein’s and James Clapper’s offices for comment, but there was none.

You can find a full — and detailed — timeline of the email investigation and McCullough at Thompson Timeline.

Rising_Serpent watched the interview and wrote a thread about it, excerpted below:

1. Charles McCullogh on Tucker: now: He explained to Hillary that it didn’t matter if the documents were “marked classified” it’s the character of the information. “She didn’t understand, its maddening” “From minute one, it was nothing but contention from Clinton campaign”

3. Inspector general pointed out these concerns to the congress but nobody was looking. McCullogh said “Who does that”?
Well Hillary does, and people who go against Hillary are punished & risk losing jobs. If this doesn’t convince people of Hillarys corruption, nothing will

4. So why is Hillary not in prison. Remember, she is as high profile as anyone could ever get. If she were to be jailed previously Antifa and other Soros paid stooges would’ve rioted and caused mayhem at a moments notice.

5. Now you have Donna Brazile, a lifelong democrat and McCullough the IG, with no political affiliation (possibly Dem friendly) both coming out describing Hillary’s moral decrepitude. As this information becomes accepted, even hardcore Clinton supporters faith is eroding.

6. Once Hillary’s culpability is firmly entrenched in collective American psyche, not many will bat an eyelid when the indictment comes “We knew it was coming”
Trump/Sessions have taken advantage of “You can get used to anything, if you give it enough time” property of humans

This brings me to Q. The timeline of the first half of November was optimistic. One wonders if decisions changed to delay events between Q’s first messages and the later ones. Later ones were supposedly written by different security operatives posting as Q.

It’s also possible that the Q messages were a strategy designed to impress urgency, so that those of us reading them would circulate them far and wide within a short space of time. They reached far beyond 4chan.org/pol/ to those whom 4chan readers refer to as ‘normies’. Q wanted all of us to get the word out. I read anecdotally online that some people’s elderly relatives asked them about the veracity of Q and how much they learned from the questions in the messages.

This could all have been part of a strategy to get Americans psychologically prepared for The Storm or the Silent War, however it unfolds.

Regardless of The Storm or Silent War, Trump is dumb like a fox.

On his way back to the US from the Philippines, President Trump tweeted:

This is what he told the media on the flight from the Philippines to the US (emphases mine):

Q Can you say what you might announce on Thursday, or Wednesday, at the White House?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think we’re going to go into details of what I said. Were you there before, when I — I think we’ll be going into some more details as to what we’re doing, as to what we accomplished. But, specifically, deals, concepts. And we’ll be pinpointing things.

But, you know, it’s minimum $300 billion, and that’s going to be very quickly over a trillion dollars, that in itself. And I would say that’s the least significant thing that we accomplished. I think one of the things we really accomplished big is relationship, and also letting people know that from now on, things are going to be reciprocal. We can’t have trade deficits of $30, $40, $50 billion; $300 billion in the case of China. We can’t do that. We have to have reciprocal trade. What’s good for them is good for us.

Q Why are those relationships so important? And is there a risk of getting too close to President Xi?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, relationship is always important. It doesn’t mean it’s necessarily close. It’s really a relationship based on respect. To me, a relationship based on respect is much more important than anything else, including friendship. Because this is really something — they have to respect our country. And they have not respected our country for a long period of time.

Thank you all very much. Have a good time. Thank you.

Two things had already happened.

The first involved China and North Korea:

The second was that China released three UCLA basketball players arrested on suspicion of theft:

The players finally thanked him but it took longer than it should have.

Trump spoke at 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 16 (short video here).

The White House posted the transcript. If you have been reading my posts over the past week, you won’t find anything new, except for this bold pronouncement:

My fellow citizens: America is back. And the future has never looked brighter.

Perhaps overseas. The domestic fractures badly need mending. Cartoonist Ben Garrison depicts the national scene perfectly.

This is how the media reacted:

Even worse, they had a go at him for reaching for a bottle of water. White House staffers who set this up should be given a checklist of what to have behind the podium, including a glass of water:

This is what many Trump supporters were waiting for in terms of a ‘major announcement’:

Stuart Varney explains everything in just under 90 seconds long.

Sean Hannity put up this helpful graphic during his eponymous show:

Hillary disagrees:

Former Trump adviser Dr Sebastian Gorka pointed out:

That said, is the Storm happening or not?

Something is going on, a nationwide bust of some sort, possibly involving children or human trafficking:

In other areas, approval ratings show that Americans are slowly coming around to President Trump:

Even informal polls — such as this one — show a shift, which Trump acknowledged. This was BLM’s attempt, which well and truly backfired:

Oh, the irony!

This is a taster for what could be coming soon.

Those who rely on Big Media for news — wherever they are in the world — could have been had once more. The media fooled them one year ago with erroneous election hype and what is coming could well be even bigger, should it happen.

I have spent at least a day reading about this and will share excerpts of two lengthy tweets below (emphases mine).

What if the following scenario were true and the events described took place?

The first is from Stealth Jeff (not Jeff Sessions’s account, by the way), unrolled here:

1) This started either before Trump announced his run for President, or soon thereafter. Someone who knew what happened told him.

2) SOMEONE in the IC, likely military intel, sat Trump down & laid out the entire #UraniumOne bribery scheme.

4) It involved so many people, it compromised so many agencies, the people who did it counted on it never being exposed or prosecuted.

5) The lengths to which they corrupted our government offices to enrich themselves by selling out our country virtually ENSURED they’d walk.

6) People knew but nobody could talk, the people involved in the scheme were at the HIGHEST levels of the American government.

9) Somebody took a chance on Trump. They sat him down, walked him through what happened.
Ponder the impossible task being revealed.

10) Even if he WINS the election, he’d be taking over a gov’t that had been corrupted & compromised by the previous administration to a

11) degree that was almost unfathomable.
HOW do you go about restoring the US gov’t to what it should be, instead of what it’s become?

12) And Trump and his advisors came up with a plan.
A brilliant plan. An intelligence operation based on DECEPTION.

Stealth Jeff thinks that Trump mentioned Putin in his campaign tweets so often in order to trap the Democrats, who really were in close contact with the Russians.

22) They fell right into his trap. He TALKED about doing deals with a guy ALL THESE TRAITORS TOOK BRIBES FROM TO SELL URANIUM TO.

23) He’s talking about hypothetical deals with Russia & people who took massive Russian bribes on the U1 deal rushed to ATTACK HIM for it.

27) Then Trump won the election. He and Sessions went to work.
Now here’s something people overlook or don’t understand.
Pay attention

28) All this stuff about #UraniumOne we’re now just finding out?
Trump & Sessions knew about ALL OF THIS before they were sworn in.

29) Part of the intelligence operation Trump & Co. are running is you never show what you know, you keep your enemy in the dark.

35) You need to start an investigation where somebody deep dives into #UraniumOne BUT you can’t let anybody outside KNOW that.

36) So here’s where the second part of the intelligence operation begins.
You convince people it’s TRUMP & HIS TEAM being investigated.

37) All the traitors who facilitated the #UraniumOne deal were on high alert after the transfer of power. Will they be sniffed out?

38) Well not to worry. Almost IMMEDIATELY the new President & his team end up being embroiled in a very public scandal.

39) Trump asks Comey to back off of Flynn, then fires Comey, who leaks memos to the NYT’s & DEMANDS appointment of a Special Counsel.

40) With a President who bragged about doing deals with Russia, an advisor caught on the phone with the Russian ambassador…..

41) …everybody AGREES: yeah, great idea! Let’s appoint a special counsel to investigate RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE in our election! So be it.

42) Jeff Sessions then recuses himself from the Russian investigation. [But remember: HE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ANYWAY]

43) Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein then appoints Bob Mueller & tasks him with investigation Russian interference in the 2016 election.

44) MUELLER AND ROSENSTEIN *both* already know that Trump & Sessions BOTH know all the details of #UraniumOne.
Got that?

45) Everybody involved in this ALREADY KNOWS. Everybody was in on this from the start. Trump, Sessions, Mueller & Rosenstein.

49) An intelligence operation based on deception calls for putting the enemy at EASE because they don’t understand what you’re REALLY doing.

While we think that Mueller has President Trump on the ropes, in reality

53) He *has* found Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Do you know what it was?
Shall I tell you?

54) He found a MASSIVE Russian bribery scheme involving 1 of the Presidential candidates in which she compromised US nat’l security.

55) He *also* found this selfsame candidate illegally funding solicitation of info from Russian gov’t sources to smear the OTHER candidate.

56) And to compound THAT offense, this candidate also tried to HIDE her funding of this dossier by using a law firm, which is illegal.

57) The investigation is mostly over. Most of the indictments from the grand jury/juries have been made, sealed.

58) You’re all about to witness something that was deemed to be an impossibility.

59) A previous administration that was so corrupt across so many agencies with so many people involved, it made it invincible….

60) is about to be rolled up.
Dozens of people are going to prison. And you know most of the names.

61) Not until the hammer actually falls & all the indictments are unsealed will most people figure out what Trump & his team did.

62) DNC Media never had a chance to compromise/thwart the investigation of #UraniumOne & #FusionGPS because they fell for the COVER STORY.

63) It’s literally too late at this point to stop what’s coming. That window closed weeks ago.

64) Examples will be made out of these people. When Trump & Sessions are done, NO ONE will ever try this kind of treason again.

The second thread is from Imperator_Rex:

1. Will Hillary Clinton be indicted? Of course she will. As will Bill Clinton, Eric Holder & the Podestas. And many others.

2. Jailed? Maybe not Bill, but the others? Almost certainly.

4. These are the worst crimes committed in American history, because they almost destroyed the government.

5. If the Clintons had won the keys to the WH, America was going down. That’s how serious this is.

6. The strange thing, however, is that when this all goes down, anyone with a functioning synapse won’t be surprised at how it happened.

7. In fact, most people will go ‘yeah, now I look at it, it was obvious from the very start.’ Let me explain.

8. First, what follows won’t be any surprise to the relevant authorities, esp Trump & Sessions.

9. As [Stealth Jeff] & have been saying for some time (and yours truly), they’re WAY ahead of us and the MSM.

11. It’s now just a question of how to round the targets up, without causing too much disturbance, or threatening public safety.

13. My thread yesterday showed Trump has prepared the ground for a massive anti-corruption drive, headed by Christopher Wray at the FBI.

14. Wray’s going to focus on white collar crime, in particular money laundering, bribery, racketeering, fraud and government corruption.

15. Jeff Sessions, who has been most unfairly smeared, will lead the prosecutions at DOJ. These will likely last for a number of years.

16. Think of an American Nuremberg trial & you’ll get the drift of how huge this will be. Painful, but necessary.

17. Many will be indicted. Anyone who has engaged in criminal activity will be targeted. On both sides of the aisle, but mostly Democrat.

18. However, there’s no doubt about it – the Clinton network is target #1.

19. has already started. You will have seen the massive corruption purge in Saudi Arabia.

20. Many of those targeted, esp Alaweed, are linked to the Clintons & the CF, so IMO it’s definitely linked to whats coming in the US.

21. Much of the focus will be on the Clinton’s money laundering schemes.

Imperator_Rex says that laundering money can be done in rather ordinary ways.

He says that Hillary knew exactly what she was doing. So did at least one other person who fended off investigations for her.

36. Back to the $ 145 million pay day. How did the money laundering scheme work?

37. The ‘donations’ weren’t made direct to the CF in the USA. Most were made to the Canadian ‘charity’, the CGEP.

38. That would be the (Bill) Clinton & (Frank) Giustra Enterprise Partnership. Both CF board members. But why to a Canadian ‘charity’?

39.B/C in Canada, charities don’t have to disclose the identity of donors, or $ value of ‘donations’, to the government.In the US they do.

40. The ‘charity’ then ‘donates’ to the CF. The US authorities could only ID the Canadian charity, not the original donors.

41. See how these crooks work? The dodgy money becomes legit as it is laundered along the way, ending up in the CF.

42. Once the $ are in the CF, it is diverted to the Clintons via expenses such as first class travel, /…

43./..personal expenses (eg Chelsea Clintons wedding) & into their back pockets. With a lot of tax avoided (illegally) along the way.

I want to interrupt at this point to excerpt a New York Times article from April 24, 2015, ‘Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal’ to give you more information on Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton:

The path to a Russian acquisition of American uranium deposits began in 2005 in Kazakhstan, where the Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra orchestrated his first big uranium deal, with Mr. Clinton at his side.

The two men had flown aboard Mr. Giustra’s private jet to Almaty, Kazakhstan, where they dined with the authoritarian president, Nursultan A. Nazarbayev. Mr. Clinton handed the Kazakh president a propaganda coup when he expressed support for Mr. Nazarbayev’s bid to head an international elections monitoring group, undercutting American foreign policy and criticism of Kazakhstan’s poor human rights record by, among others, his wife, then a senator.

Within days of the visit, Mr. Giustra’s fledgling company, UrAsia Energy Ltd., signed a preliminary deal giving it stakes in three uranium mines controlled by the state-run uranium agency Kazatomprom.

If the Kazakh deal was a major victory, UrAsia did not wait long before resuming the hunt. In 2007, it merged with Uranium One, a South African company with assets in Africa and Australia, in what was described as a $3.5 billion transaction. The new company, which kept the Uranium One name, was controlled by UrAsia investors including Ian Telfer, a Canadian who became chairman. Through a spokeswoman, Mr. Giustra, whose personal stake in the deal was estimated at about $45 million, said he sold his stake in 2007.

Back now to Imperator_Rex’s thread:

47. Note – Hillary & Bills money laundering schemes are NOT news. Many talented reporters were onto these crimes years ago.

48. BUT they’ve never been investigated properly. Again, we will find out why & who was protecting the Clintons in due course.

40. It gets worse. The Clintons didn’t just use the CF to enrich themselves to the detriment of the US.

51. I suspect we will also learn about how they used the DNC & other front organizations (eg law firms) to do it.

52. With the DNC, I’m certain the vile Donna Brazile has flipped. And the Sanders people won’t hold back helping the authorities, either.

54. That is just the money laundering aspect. There are many other crimes the Clintons have committed. We don’t know the half of it.

57. What they did was rotting the heart of the Republic. Literally destroying America. There’s no other way to describe it, is there?

58. By now, I’m pretty sure the Clintons have been told what’s going to happen. They need to get their affairs in order.

61. They’ll then be indicted and arrested. On Nov 8, I’d say. But it doesn’t really matter. It’s inevitable.

62. And then the Clintons need to make some form of peace with God. Because America will never forgive them for what they’ve done.

63.Have no fear. One man saw it early & knows what to do : Donald J Trump. And as he’s promised, he’s not going to let us down.

65. Good article linking Saudi developments with what’s about to happen in USA

The article, dated November 5, is from Zach Haller, ‘Saudi Royalty Arrests Rock Clinton-Obama Regime’.

I provided some background to the November 4 Saudi purge yesterday.

Excerpts from Zach Haller’s article follow:

As the story of the massive Saudi royalty purge develops, Americans should anticipate these arrests and the subsequent investigations will implicate Obama and Clinton in major ways. Investigations into Obama-Clinton impropriety by special counsel Robert Mueller encompass Obama and Clinton’s financial ties and dubious political alliances with both Saudi Arabia and Russia alike.

Those following Trump’s efforts to police Obama and Clinton’s extensive criminality are aware Mueller’s probe implicates Clinton crony and lobbying giant Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta. Wikileaks releases of John Podesta’s emails opened a Pandora’s box of Democratic Party corruption when released last fall, but Tony Podesta’s nefarious and longtime lobbying efforts with both Russia and Saudi Arabia are only now beginning to be broadly exposed to the American public

Given the media moguls arrested in the Saudi sting and the American media’s allegiance to the Clinton-Obama regime, little is being reported on the implications the arrests have on current events in American politics.

No, instead the Baptist church massacre took place on Sunday, November 5. Many commenters on various websites are wondering why a mass shooting takes place whenever a government scandal or clean-up is uncovered. In that context, these shootings appear to be deliberate distractions, which is why people get the impression that these horrific ‘lone wolf’ incidents that take dozens of innocent lives are engineered.

On that note, what if there were some connection — as yet unknown — between the Saudis and the Mandalay Bay massacre? The top few floors are allegedly the Saudi-owned Four Seasons. If there were a connection, would it help to explain why the FBI and Las Vegas police have gone quiet? If that were so, how much more horrible would it be for the injured victims and families of those who died?

All of this is something to consider in the days ahead. Some might have difficulty wrapping their heads around the stark possibility and severity of all of this, should it take place.

America, please be prepared for this possibility. Things might not be as they seem.

In the meantime, pray for President Trump, those working for him, his family and for the recovery of the Great Republic.
