About Those 70 Obama Holdovers Cut From the NSC…

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 set new record highs on Monday, as the Trump economy just keeps WINNING for Americans and their 401(k)’s. The Dow was also up, but not quite at record levels reached a few weeks ago, before  the Coronavirus scare. And it’s only going to get better, as early trading futures indicate all indexes will open at higher levels today.

About those “70 Obama holdovers” cut from the NSC… – Twitter and other social media outlets went nuts on Monday over a slightly misleading report issued by the Washington Examiner. The report itself, filed by Paul Bedard, is accurate, but requires some close reading to understand what is really being communicated.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case, it was the headline that misled most readers and caused the story to go viral on social media, which of course was the goal of the misleading headline. That headline reads as follows:

Bigger than Vindman: Trump scrubs 70 Obama holdovers from NSC

BOOM, right? Well, sort of. Coming as the report did on a Monday morning, barely 48 hours after the removal of everyone named Vindman from the NSC staff, the headline is obviously designed to create the impression that dozens of disloyal Obama holdovers on the NSC staff were removed over the weekend. And that was how the story was portrayed by repeaters throughout social media and conservative media like Breitbart.

The trouble is, that is not what happened.

The misleading part of the story itself comes not in what the author said, but in what he left out of the text. While it is apparently accurate that 70 NSC employees, most of whom were indeed holdovers from the Obama era, have been removed from the NSC staff, nowhere in Bedard’s story does he mention that this transition has been a slow and steady process that has taken place since current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien took over that job last fall.

There was no replay of Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” at the NSC over the weekend; indeed, I can find no evidence that a single member of the NSC staff was fired or reassigned on Saturday or Sunday. However, it is apparently true that O’Brien, working on orders from President Trump, has succeeded in ridding the White House of 70 NSC deep state functionaries since he came into office several months ago. It is also true that O’Brien has publicly stated that this process of weeding out the bad guys is still ongoing and could end up with the removal of up to half of the bloated NSC staff of 200 that President Trump inherited from Barack Obama His Own Self.

Clear?

There is still much reason to celebrate here, as O’Brien finally does the job that General Mike Flynn, Trump’s original appointment to be the National Security Advisor, would have done had he not been entrapped and framed by Obama FBI holdovers Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka. Better late than never.

And the good news keeps coming. On Monday, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova told an interviewer that he has been told by “a very senior U.S. government policy official” that the “Anonymous” author who wrote the infamous 2018 New York Times column claiming that he and “like-minded” colleagues working in the Trump Administration were actively undermining the President’s agenda has been identified and will be fired this week.

In a report this morning on Fox’s “Mornings With Maria,” author Lee Smith said that two fairly senior officials, Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood and Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, have also been identified as disloyal staff working to undermine administration policy, and both would likely be removed this week. Rood served in several posts during the George W. Bush administration, including a stint as an analyst at the CIA. Hook is also a former Bushie who served in the State Department in the waning days of that administration.

Whether either man is the “Anonymous” author is unclear at this time.

The good news here is this: Three full years into his Administration, President Trump finally has a National Security Advisor who is fully on his team and helping him to achieve his goals. What we are seeing O’Brien accomplish today is one of the main reasons why the Obama people were so panicked about having a Trump loyalist in Mike Flynn as the NSA – because, as we have seen, Obama had packed the NSC staff with deep state operatives who served as the nexus of all the serial leaking that so damaged this presidency in its early years.

You may have noticed that the frequency of leaking from the White House has dramatically diminished since O’Brien took the job.

And O’Brien isn’t done yet.

WINNING.

That is all.

The Leak Factory at the NSC is Finally Being Addressed

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Better late than never; but dang, this is really late. – The Washington Times reported on Wednesday that National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien is finally getting around to radically reducing the staff of the illegal leak factory and nest of subversion that is the National Security Council. This is a job that should have been done during the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, but didn’t because President Trump’s first pick for the job, General H.R. McMaster, was himself a deep state leaker, and his second choice, John Bolton, was a neocon whose only interest was in finding ways to keep us in interminable wars in the Middle East and trying to provoke new ones.

With Mr. O’Brien, who just came into the job this past September, the President appears to have finally found a man who understands the internal threat the NSC staff have represented to this Administration and is focused on ending that threat. The way to end it is to rid the agency of its myriad subversive staff, and the best way to do that is with a massive, targeted down-sizing. From the Washington Times piece:

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff.

A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials.

White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort. He revealed in a recent interview with The Washington Times that 40 to 45 NSC staff officials were sent back in recent months to the agencies where they originally worked, with more likely to be moved out.

Not surprisingly, the NSC staff became absurdly bloated during the Obama Adminstration – which bloated every agency of the federal government – as the secretive, radical control freaks on the Obama senior staff attempted to centralize functions better done within the State or Defense Departments (or, frankly, not done at all) within the White House:

Under President Obama, the NSC staff mushroomed to as many as 450 people. Mr. O’Brien plans to cut the staff to fewer than 120 policy officials by early next year.

The downsizing will be carried out by consolidating positions and returning officials to agencies and departments such as the CIA, the State and Defense departments and the military.

Mr. O’Brien noted that the NSC had a policymaking staff of 12 in 1962 when President Kennedy faced down the Soviet Union during the Cuban missile crisis. During the 2000s and the George W. Bush administration, the number of NSC staff members increased sharply to support the three-front conflict in Iraq, Afghanistan and the war on terrorism.

However, it was during the Obama administration that the NSC was transformed into a major policymaking agency seeking to duplicate the functions of the State and Defense departments within the White House.

“The NSC staff became bloated during the prior administration,” Mr. O’Brien said. “The NSC is a coordinating body. I am trying to get us back to a lean and efficient staff that can get the job done, can coordinate with our interagency partners, and make sure the president receives the best advice he needs to make the decisions necessary to keep the American people safe.”

In the Obama administration, NSC officials wielded enormous power. NSC staff members were known to telephone commanders in Afghanistan and other locations in the Middle East with orders — a violation of the military’s strict chain of command, said military officials familiar with the calls.

The problems with disloyalty and leaking on the NSC staff have been myriad since the day President Trump assumed office. McMaster was an Obama loyalist to begin with, and refused to do any house-cleaning during his two years in the job, and Bolton was simply disinterested in getting the crucial house-cleaning done.

The poster child for the NSC’s disloyalty to the current Administration and propensity for leaking classified information is, of course, Alexander Vindman, who became a key witness for the Democrat impeachment clown show. Although O’Brien said in November that Vindman would be rotated back to his previous job at the Department of Defense, he remains on the NSC staff today. Hopefully, he will be one of the early casualties of this downsizing.

The subversive nature of many on the staff at the NSC has been an intolerable situation since Day 1 of the Trump Administration. It is long past time someone began to address it. Kudos to Mr. O’Brien for being the guy to finally get it done.

That is all.

The Fake Impeachment Coup Effort Goes Back to at Least April

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Readers who watched Friday’s fake impeachment hearing will likely remember the moment when, after President Trump had released the full transcript of his first call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Bug-eyes Schiff read the White House’s read-out summary of the call, prepared by staff of the National Security Council, into the record. You will also remember that Bug-eyes dramatically noted that, hey, this NSC summary of the call does not accurately reflect what was actually said on the call.

Specifically, Bug-eyes pointed to this passage from the NSC summary:

“[President Trump] underscored the unwavering support of the United States for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity – within its internationally recognized borders – and expressed his commitment to work together with President-elect Zelensky and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity, and root out corruption.”

Bug-eyes then noted, as his eyes almost bugged right out of his pasty noggin, that the transcript of the call does not indicate that President Trump in fact said any of those things on the call. Naturally, Schiff wants the public to believe that this incorrect read-out summary of the call is somehow a part of a nefarious White House scheme to cover up the President’s “real” conversations with Zelensky.

But there’s a problem with the Democrats’ latest false narrative to frame President Trump: Guess who prepared that read-out summary of that April call? Why, as the Washington Examiner reported on Saturday, that job fell to the NSC’s “Ukraine expert.”‘

Guess who that happens to be? If you said retired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who plays the role of the unassailable military guy in this whole charade, you win the prize. This would be the very same Alexander Vindman who tacitly admitted during his Capitol basement interrogation that he believed it was his job to actively undermine and countermand President Trump’s policy towards Ukraine, even as he laughably claimed he faithfully worked to execute that policy.

This would also be the very same Alexander Vindman who pretty much undoubtedly is one of the “sources” for the fake complaint filed by fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella, the CIA leaker/spy who went right back to the CIA once his role in this fantasy play had been executed and remains gainfully employed there today. Vindman himself remains embedded at the NSC with the apparent full backing of the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who could recall him from his posting at the White House at any time for any reason.

In fact, a good case can be made that it is the Pentagon’s duty to the Commander-in-Chief to act to reassign Vindman to some clerk job in the Pentagon basement, since it is politically impossible for the President to make that happen at this time. Yet, the generals do nothing to remove this human cancer. Think about the implications of that inaction in this whole scenario.

So as we see clearly now, this latest coup plot to remove the President via this impeachment circus did not begin with Bug-eyes and his staff coordinating the complaint with Ciaramella. It began at least in April with Vindman constructing the read-out summary of that call in a way that supports the Democrat/media “coverup” narrative.

It would be a great next step if the Examiner could endeavor to find out who else at the NSC was in the chain of approval for Vindman’s summary. Let’s all remember that President Trump’s National Security Advisor at that time was this guy named John Bolton, who the President got rid of in August.

Oh.

This is not an impeachment, folks. This is a slow-rolling coup d’etat, one that has been moving since at least April, and likely earlier than that. It’s the “back-up plan” to the Mueller “back-up plan.”

That is all.

Democrat Impeachment Circus Finally Makes it to the Big Top

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Another day, another stock market record. The NASDAQ closed at its latest all-time record high on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average also closing unchanged at its all-time record high level. The Trump economy just refuses to cooperate with the Democrat/Media effort to talk the nation into a recession before next year’s elections.

The economy and stock market are doing so incredibly well, in fact, that the Democrats simply must impeach President Donald Trump. – The amazing prosperity and record levels of low unemployment achieved by the Trump economy has the Democrats so upset that they believe they have no choice but to impeach the President. No, I’m not kidding in saying that. That really is the case here.

San Fran Nan, Bug-eyes Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the rest of the Democrat “leadership” understand that, when an incumbent president is running for re-election to a second term, that election pretty much always turns on the relative health of the economy. Voters tend to vote their pocketbooks, and when their pocketbooks are filled thanks to their being gainfully employed, they don’t tend to be in the mood for a radical change in the White House.

Let’s be honest: If the Democrats are offering nothing else to the voters with their lineup of carnival freak show presidential contenders, they are offering radical change, and not for the better when it comes to the economy. From Elizabeth Warren to The Commie to Preacher Pete to Quid Pro Joe, what they are offering to the voters for 2020 would well and truly take the nation to economic ruin like it has never seen before. There is not enough money on the face of God’s green earth to fund the $92 trillion Green New Deal, much less Medicare for all, free tuition, and all the other tons o’ fun free stuff these nitwits are using to try to buy the votes of the naive and the just plain stupid among us.

Given this stark reality, Democrat poo-bahs know they must do everything they possibly can to make the 2020 election a referendum on something, anything other than the economy. So they concocted the dumbest fake impeachment plan in U.S. history, a plan to hype and mis-characterize a July 25 phone call between the presidents of the U.S. and Ukraine, a plan to turn a perfectly valid demand by the U.S. for the Ukraine to investigate clear and unambiguous corruption by a former U.S. vice president and his son into some sort of mob-style blackmail scheme.

The plan is to “dirty-up” President Trump with a phony scandal to such an extent that his amazingly resilient public approval numbers fall into the 30s range, based on the reality that they cannot hope to defeat him next year unless that happens. San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes thought they could achieve this goal by holding Soviet-style interrogations of witnesses in the basement of the Capitol and strategically leaking only the damaging parts of their testimony to their willing accomplices at the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN.

But that tactic failed miserably just as all their other tactics over the past three years have miserably failed. So, today they’re taking their deceitful carnival side show right out into the Big Top with nationally-televised hearings featuring bureaucrats no one’s ever heard of whining about the disagreements they had with the foreign policy constitutionally set by the President of the United States.

Even in this new phase, the despicable Dems are hilariously hamstrung by their own mendacity. They can’t call the fake whistleblower, Eric CIAramella, whose fake, hearsay complaint served as the kicking off point for this entire fantasy play. They can’t call this deep state spy/leaker because he’d either have to commit perjury or admit to all of his coordination with Bug-eyes and his staff in writing and filing the complaint.

And what of the highly-publicized and promoted Alexander Vindman, the Obama holdover at the NSC who showed up to his basement interrogation wearing his dress uniform for the TV cameras in clear violation of the U.S. military code of conduct? Vindman’s name is mysteriously nowhere to be found on this week’s witness list. It turns out that, despite Schiff’s strategic leaks of small portions of Vindman’s tesimony, the deep state embed actually did not do well at all under cross-examination by GOP Rep. John Ratcliffe, and Vindman’s hothead lawyer came across as the bad guy character from an episode of Ally McBeal. So Vindman obviously needs more coaching time, and perhaps also a new lawyer.

Curiously on the witness list for Thursday is ex-U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who we know already committed perjury during her own basement testimony. This Obama holdover was so corrupt that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky actually asked President Trump to get rid of her. But, being an Obama appointee, she is no doubt willing to say whatever San Fran Nan and Bug-eyes want from her, so they’re putting her up there despite her previous perjury.

I won’t be obsessing over these public hearings today because I have better things to do with my time, like trim my fingernails and vacuum the spare bedrooms, and I hope you won’t either.

Because at the end of the day, this is just a show. It’s just an episode of ‘Seinfeld’: A show about nothing, only without the entertaining parts.

That is all.

How Does the Never-ending Coup d’etat End?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, how does it all end? – Oh, we know how the Democrats’ “impeachment” circus is going to end – with a rejection of articles of impeachment in the U.S. Senate. They’ll get support from several disloyal RINOs, snakes like Mitt Romney and maybe one or two others to whom personal ambition and preservation of their slice of the DC Swamp gravy train outweighs standing up for the rule of law and the sanctity of America’s electoral process. But in the end, the senate will reject the Schiff/Pelosi impeachment effort – that much is a given.

No, what I’m talking about here, and what every loyal American needs to be thinking about as the never-ending coup d’etat approaches its third anniversary, is how does that all end? What is the ultimate end game there? The coup cabal leaders have now had 33 months of the Trump Administration to catch or entrap or frame President of the United States in the commissions of a crime – any old real, actual crime would do – and have come up miserable failures in that effort.

And their record of abject failure is even worse than that when one considers that the efforts to entrap or frame Donald Trump actually started way back in November 2015, when it became obvious he would win the GOP nomination, which means we are really right at the fourth anniversary of this ongoing bit of treasonous action. After those four long years, the coup cabal has come up with…bupkis. Zero. Zip. Zilch. A big ol’ bag of nothing.

So, how does this all end? Does it just keep on going for five more years, through the end of President Trump’s second term in office? Because a second Trump term is almost an inevitability at this point unless the coup cabal can find a way to get rid of him without an election. This impeachment farce ain’t gonna get it done.

The Democrats and their corrupt media toadies can pontificate all they want about impeachment being “a purely political thing,” but the American people are obviously unmoved by that false argument. The Constitution’s discussion of impeachment contains the specific words “high crimes and misdemeanors” for a reason, and the clear evidence of the peoples’ belief in that reason is that today, after hearing this false “it’s just politics” argument 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the last 2 months, the President’s public approval ratings stand exactly where they stood way back when all this began.

The evidence of just how miserably the coup cabal has failed in its efforts to move the nation’s opinion of the President was heard and seen loud and clear at Alabama’s Bryant Denny Stadium yesterday:

Yes, that’s real America, that vast middle 80% of the nation that lies between the regions occupied by the coastal elites. Real America is Trump Country, and those people will not peacefully tolerate the removal of this President from office by these illegitimate means.

So, if the people are unmoved by the farce, what happens next and how does this all end? Can the coup cabal really sustain this long-running fantasy play for nine long years? Are they really just planning to keep running through the same tiresome playbook over and over again until it somehow works? The word for that is insanity, and it is a very apt description of what they continue to put the nation through in their mad quest for power.

How does this all end? If the last 33 months have taught us nothing else, they have taught us that the federal administrative state is filled to the gills with disloyal Obama holdovers and career bureaucrats who are perfectly willing to subvert the Constitution and the electoral process in order to affect their own personal political agenda. The Alexander Vindmans and Eric Ciaramellas are not outliers at the National Security Council or the CIA – they’re closer to the norm, a norm that also exists within the bureaucracies of the State Department, the Department of the Interior, the EPA and most other bureaucracies of the federal government.

These people are like cancerous cells flowing through the vessels of the Trump Administration, doing everything they can each and every day to make it impossible for the President to govern as he was elected to do. This disloyalty, this active mendacity and seditious activity within the bureaucracy is not a “new” thing per se. President Reagan, and to a lesser extent, Bush 41 and Bush 43 had to deal with it, though at a far less intense level.

What’s different this time is scale of it, and its audacity. Before now, the Deep State had always lurked in the shadows, careful to hide its ambitions and activities. But now, we have the spectacle of it dressing itself up in fully military regalia – Vindman – in clear violation of the military code of conduct and having no one in the military chain of command utter a peep of objection or condemnation.

We have the lawyer for Ciaramella, the fake whistleblower who played the role of kicking off the whole impeachment farce, bragging about a coup and publicly recruiting other whistleblowers on his twitter feed. We have the leader of the impeachment farce, Adam Schiff, denying the GOP members of his committee the right to even ask questions of Ciaramella under the false argument that whistleblowers are guaranteed a right to remain anonymous. Completely false.

This is audacious. It’s right out in the open, and if you’re thinking the coup cabal will just fold up its collective tent and suddenly become loyal Americans again once their impeachment effort fails, you are living in an alternative reality. It should be obvious to everyone by now that that is just not going to happen.

So, what does the duly-elected President of the United States do once he is exonerated by the duly-elected U.S. Senate? To quote Ezekiel 25:17, he is “beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men,” to such an extent that it is now bordering on impacting not just the President’s security, but the security of this nation. Which of course is the goal of this cabal of evil, disloyal people.

How does this all end once the impeachment farce fails? How will the President deal with the skunks and snakes that Obama left embedded in the administrative state? He knows who many of them are by now, but federal employment laws make it almost impossible to get rid of them. He theoretically could issue an executive order declaring an emergency, suspending those laws and enabling his cabinet officials herd the snakes and skunks out of their ranks, but would they do it?

Would Christopher Wray take the opportunity to clean out his raging dumpster fire at the FBI? Would Gina Haspel use the chance to get rid of Ciaramella and his compatriots within her ranks at the CIA? And what about the Pentagon – the Vindman spectacle makes you wonder exactly where the loyalties at the Joint Chiefs of Staff lie at this point.

How does this all end? Or does it just keep going on and on and on until the Democrats and the corrupt news media and the deep state minions achieve their ultimate goal of taking the country into another Civil War?

Good question. I wish we knew the answer.

That is all.

Tucker Carlson and Rand Paul Lambast Lindsey Graham – But What About Richard Burr?

Today’s Campaign Update, PART II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why should the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee get a pass? – No one is more frustrated with the empty promises of Lindsey Graham than I am. The Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who must stand for re-election to his South Carolina Senate seat in 2020, has spent this entire year rushing before the nearest TV camera to make empty promise after empty promise about his plans to force people to testify before his committee.

He’s done this so many times, he has become the Senate’s version of the boy who cried wolf. It’s to the point now where it is near-impossible to take the guy seriously anymore. On his nightly Fox News program last night, Tucker Carlson aired an entire segment on the issue, which included an interview with Senator Rand Paul:

So, yes, Sen. Graham is failing in his duty as chairman. I wrote early this year that, due to his rumored lifestyle, Graham may be one of the most easily-compromised members of the Senate, and it certainly appears as if he has been compromised, and is afraid to exercise the powers of his chairmanship. This is sad and detestable, but it really should come as no surprise to anyone.

Graham richly deserves every bit of criticism he gets from Carlson, Sen. Paul and anyone else who weighs in on this subject – no argument there. His committee has jurisdiction over everything that took place within the Department of Justice and the FBI during 2016 through 2018, and it is now crystal clear Graham has no intention of making any effort whatsoever to hold anyone accountable.

His committee also has the power to subpoena each and every witness being interrogated in the basement of the Capitol Building by Adam Schiff in the fake impeachment charade, but it is obvious now that Graham, despite his threats, has no intention of doing that, either. He deserves to be primaried by a real conservative Republican next year, and to be defeated.

But there is another very powerful Chairman of a very powerful Senate committee – the Intelligence Committee – who also has jurisdiction over every action the coup cabal took during the past three years, and who also has done literally nothing to try to hold anyone accountable.

That Chairman is RINO Richard Burr of North Carolina, and he seems to just get a pass from Carlson and Paul and everyone else for his studious inaction. If anything, given what we now know today about the Comey/Brennan operation Crossfire Hurricane, which involved multiple efforts to entrap members of the Trump campaign by foreign CIA operatives on foreign soil, Burr’s committee should have and even more compelling reason to hold hearings and subpoena witnesses to try to ferret out the truth and hold officials accountable.

But…crickets. Not just from Burr and his committee, but from Tucker Carlson, Rand Paul and everyone else.

Has Sen. Burr been compromised by the deep state, too? Or does he just not give a damn? Either way, the public deserves to know what in the hell is going on here?

That is all.

Horowitz Report Delayed Again? What a Shock. Not.

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In case you missed it, the report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s FISA abuse investigation is being delayed. Yet again. For the, what, 100th time?

News of the latest delay came from Maria Bartiromo, host on Fox News’s “Mornings With Maria,” who had previously reported on her program last week that the report would be released this Friday:

“Classifications being made.” Well, we all know what that means in the lingo of the apparently hopelessly-corrupt Department of Justice these days, right? Whenever we do see this report, it will be filled with entire passages completely black out, and those will in all likelihood be the most crucial passages that would implicate the actual bad actors in the 2016-17 election fixing/coup effort.

So, every time you get to thinking that maybe, just maybe, Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham might actually be making some progress and doing something real in their own investigation into the origins of the election fixing/coup d’etat plot, you get a countervailing event that shows you nothing much has changed at the Department of [No] Justice. Let’s all remember that this past May, President Donald Trump gave Mr. Barr full discretion on the determination of what information related to these unending efforts to change the results of the 2016 elections should and should not be classified. Thus, if we are now having another two-week delay in the issuance of the Horowitz Report, it is completely at Barr’s discretion.

Speaking on Sean Hannity’s show Monday night, former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said that the interminable delays are the result of “intra-agency debate, and really a food fight” over classification issues, further saying that he’s being told that up to 10-20% of the full report – which Bartiromo claims is massive – will end up being blacked out. Chaffetz reminded Hannity that just 7 WORDS had been black out in Horowitz’s previous report.

Oh. So, nothing at DOJ has really changed since 2016, right?

But it gets even worse, according to Chaffetz. Fast forward to 3:35 of the clip below and listen to what he says about worthless FBI Apparatchik Christopher Wray:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here’s a partial transcript of the key 15 seconds:

Hannity: Who is asking for the redactions? Is that Director Wray?

Chaffetz: I have not seen any evidence that Director Wray has been cooperative, but I think you’re also talking about other agencies, perhaps the CIA, the NSA, there are others. I think Mr. Clapper, Mr. Brennan are fighting behind the scenes as best they can, in front of the camera they’re fighting as best they can.

This is disgusting. It’s an ongoing national disgrace. And it’s apparently never going to end.

Another very interesting piece of that clip comes just a few seconds into the video, when Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz acknowledges that he was kicked out of a House Intelligence Committee witness deposition by Chairman Adam Schiff yesterday. Kicked out.

Imagine – just try to imagine – the uproar we would be seeing in our fake news media this morning had Republican Chairman Devin Nunes kicked Schiff out of a formal committee meeting during 2017-18. You would think the world was coming to an end.

This is real, true Nazi stuff, folks. The majority party is now so all-consumed with power that is denying the minority party members any and all rights to participate in this fake impeachment process.

And it’s all being enabled by your fake news media. Why?  Because they’re complicit, too. Never forget that part.

Have a great day, if you can.

That is all.

Congress is a Plague of Liars, Skunks and Eunuchs

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One problem with the testimony of Acting DNI Joseph Maguire. – Joseph Maguire generally did quite well in refuting the Democrats’ phony scandal-mongering, and made it very clear that he followed the letter of the law throughout the process of reviewing the fake whistleblower complaint he with which was confronted.

Just one problem, though: At several points in response to questions from both Republicans and Democrats, Maguire claimed he was “certain” that the leaks to the press related to the whistleblower situation did not come from “anyone in the IC (Intel Community).” Sorry, but that simply cannot be a true statement. There is no way on earth he or anyone else can be certain that no one in the IC leaked this information or caused it to be leaked, especially now that we know that the fake whistleblower is in fact a CIA agent, which means that some if not all of the people feeding him the largely-false information contained in his complaint were also employees of CIA or other IC agencies.

Granted, we also now know that Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff has had this complaint in his grubby paws since August, so it there can be no doubt that he and his staff have done at least some of the leaking. That’s what those despicable cretins do, after all. But there is simply no way Maguire can possibly be certain that zero leaks of this highly-classified information came from anyone in the IC. He should be forced by the Committee and frankly by the President to revise those remarks for the record.

Yesterday’s revelation about the fake whistleblower’s identity proves conclusively that President Trump has been right yet again with his ongoing complaints that he and his staff continue to be spied upon by the CIA and other IC agencies. At the very least, he should eliminate the ability of anyone from the IC to listen in on his calls with other world leaders. His ability – and the ability of all future presidents – to hold such calls in the future has already been irreparably harmed by the Democrats’ disgraceful behavior over this phony complaint. Getting the spooks off the calls might help to repair at least some of the damage done.

Trump also needs to find a replacement for CIA Director Gina Haspel. Obviously, she’s a worthless hack who, like FBI Director Christopher Wray, has done nothing to clean up her agency and its illegal spying activities. In a perfect world, both agencies would be broken into a million pieces and scattered to the winds, as John F. Kennedy famously threatened to do to the CIA after the Bay of Pigs fiasco 58 years ago. Of course, JFK was conveniently assassinated just two years later, and the CIA’s problem was solved.

The truth about those two agencies is that both have been utterly corrupt institutions since the day of their founding, and that corruption was taken to new heights during the Obama years, culminating in a coordinated effort to spy on an American presidential campaign and then to mount a coup d’etat when their preferred candidate failed to win.

This fake whistleblower complaint by a reported Obama loyalist exists due to the failure to mount any real effort to clean the evil minions out of the CIA. That, of course, is due to the fact that anyone President Trump can get confirmed by the Senate must first be approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee led by deep state skunk Republican Richard Burr of North Carolina. Haspel, a loyal lieutenant to John Brennan during the Obama years, is in that job now because she could be confirmed. Coincidentally, Mr. Maguire is in his job rather than Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe – Trump’s first choice – because Burr gave his nod of approval to Maguire after promising to block Ratcliffe.

Wray is in his job for the same reason.  Are you seeing a pattern here?

The reality here is that the IC remains a collection of corrupt institutions who spy on their own citizens and even their own President not because of Democrats, but because of compromised/corrupt Republican senators like Burr who remain loyal to the deep state instead of the American people.

Damn them all to hell.

About that Adam Schiff soliloquy to start the hearing… – Many Republicans are whining and moaning this morning about Schiff and his statement to begin the hearing in which he completely fabricated what was said on the call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky. Yes, it was despicable, yes it was just another in a long line of treasonous acts by a treasonous Democrat, but why would we expect anything else?

And while we’re all whining and moaning about the fact that the Democrat-toady TV channels are all simply playing Schiff’s latest fabrications without critical comment, why aren’t we demanding to know why not one of the Republicans in that room spoke up and objected while he was doing it?

Devin Nunes, normally a stellar guy, was sitting 6 inches from Schiff throughout that false statement. At least 7 other Republican members of the committee were sitting there as well. Why didn’t any one of them have the presence of mind to raise an objection with the Chair, calling him out for literally making sh*t up? Indeed, Nunes didn’t even say a word about it when he, as the Ranking Member, was the first Republican to question the witness. We were half an hour into the damn hearing before one Republican, Mike Turner of Ohio, finally had the presence of mind to berate Schiff for his act of outright mendacity.

Thus, the reason why your fake news media has that squeaky-clean, uninterrupted video of Schiff making his false statement to brainwash the masses with this morning is that the GOP members of that committee were all sitting there like a bunch of damn eunuchs while he was doing it.

Good lord.

That is all.

McCabe Hiring Consolidates the Spookification of Our News Media

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Should we change their names to CIANN and MSFBI? – After the news-fakers over at CNN added disgraced serial liar Andrew McCabe to its roster of paid contributors on Friday, the Daily Caller News Foundation notes that CNN and MSNBC now openly and proudly employ no fewer than 15 former employees of the myriad U.S. intelligence agencies.

That’s right: 15. Amazingly enough, America’s national Teenage Drama Queen, James Comey, is not among them. But he and McCabe were out on the CIANN airwaves performing as your basic Abbott and Costello tag team of Clintonian non-denial denial in the wake of the claims being made by Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, that their FBI mounted a spying campaign against no fewer than four presidential campaigns during 2015-16.

Comey, when contacted by a CIANN fake reporter, would only give the same sort of cryptic answer that he posts on his Twitter feed: “The FBI doesn’t work that way.” Yet, we know with 100% certainty based on the public record available today that the FBI under James Comey did indeed “work that way” when it came to spying on the Trump campaign, going so far as to run operatives at certain members of the campaign in obvious efforts to entrap them. That is simply unarguable at this point, even without anymore documents being declassified.

The mouthy McCabe, as is his self-destructive habit, was more verbose in his non-denial denials. Check out this passage from the CIANN story:

Former FBI deputy director and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe said he hadn’t heard of Byrne until the former CEO revealed his relationship with Butina.
“His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there,” McCabe, who held the No. 2 role at the agency beginning in 2016 until his firing in 2018, said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.”
McCabe said it was “certainly possible” that Byrne volunteered information about Butina to the FBI, but disputed the claim that agents would have told Byrne to “engage in a romantic relationship with a suspected Russian intelligence agent.”
“That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” McCabe said.

Let’s break that down, starting with the last statement, “That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” which is pretty much exactly what his former partner in cri…er…”boss” Comey said. Would it surprise anyone out there if Comey and McCabe had gotten together on the phone to coordinate messaging in advance of taking any appointments from friendly fake media outfits?

And let’s look at that first statement: “His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there.” In the context of that very carefully-worded sentence, the phrase “at the highest levels” could mean he is denying that he and Comey, then the two highest officials at the FBI, never got together and discussed this program, which certainly could be true within what Byrne is alleging, given that he is claiming his orders came from Peter Strzok, not Comey or McCabe.

Let’s remember that Strzok did not report directly to either one of these non-denial artists at that time. Thus, it would have been very easy to compartmentalize all internal communications about any domestic espionage operations in order to provide both McCabe and Comey with a sweet level of plausible deniability about the matter.

But “at the highest levels” could also mean that Comey never discussed the spying effort with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, or that Lynch never discussed it with then-President Barack Hussein Obama his own self.

In other words, neither Comey nor McCabe actually “denied” any element of Byrne’s story, which is nothing unusual. This is just how they do things in spook-world.

As for the 15 ex-spooks now employed at CNN and MSNBC, you can be sure most of them are still serving as active informants and operatives for the FBI, CIA and various other intelligence agencies. You can also be sure that many other employees at those two cable channels and other big establishment media outlets are also serving in similar roles. These agencies have since their creation always made it a practice to place or recruit media members to serve in such jobs.

Remember, when President Donald Trump forced the release of a raft additional documents related to the JFK assassination in late 2017, we discovered that, as of November 1963, the CIA alone had no fewer than 42 assets placed in the country’s various media outlets. Given the way the number of both media outlets and intelligence agencies have multiplied over the last 56 years, you can be sure the number of spook plants within those outlets has grown apace.

The only aspect of this longstanding infiltration of our news media that has changed is that today, fake media operations like CIANN and MSFBI proudly announce that they are paying gobs of money to these spooks for the privilege of airing their deceptions to the public.

All of which is just one more reason why you should never take anything reported by any establishment media organization at face value. Honestly, it is becoming almost impossible to find anything resembling real news being reported anymore.

The Spookification of our media establishment is pretty much complete.

That is all.
