Trump Fires ICIG Atkinson: Media/Coup Plotters Hardest Hit

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

A new day has officially arrived at the U.S. Intelligence Community.  – Late Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) pulled the trigger on Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, providing him with his walking papers effective at the end of this month.

A more appropriate firing has never before happened to any employee of our federal government. Naturally, the corrupt coup d’etat supporters in our national news media went berserk. They all love Atkinson, given the key role he played in the whole fake impeachment hoax that distracted the nation’s attention from other crucial matters – like the Wuhan Virus – from September through January.

Here is the letter President Trump sent to Senators Richard Burr (RINO) and Mark Warner (D), the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, last night:

The President no doubt took this crucial decision based on the recommendation of Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennel. It is also likely no coincidence that the move comes just a few days after former Congressman Mark Meadows assumed the job of President Trump’s Chief of Staff. So, let’s all give Mr. Grennel and Mr. Meadows a standing round of applause as well.

Atkinson, remember is the corrupt Obama holdover who last August single-handedly enabled the entire impeachment hoax to move forward based on the anonymous, hearsay “whistleblower” complaint by surreptitiously changing the IC’s whistleblower rules to allow second-hand information. As reported this morning by Gateway Pundit:

Atkinson saw to it that the whistleblower form was updated to allow for second hand information, which the ‘whistleblower’ (believed to be Eric Ciaramella) provided in his complaint. Although, the form should not have been accepted based on second-hand information and because it was about the President of the United States (who is not in the IC), Atkinson accepted the complaint.

The whistleblower later attempted to edit the form he originally provided. The original form stated that the whistleblower did not talk to Congress before filing the form but after it was discovered that he had met with Adam Schiff’s team in Congress, the whistleblower attempted to edit his form.

It’s important to note that Atkinson’s move came just days after Schiff and his staff had coordinated with the fake whistleblower – Eric Ciaramella – to compile his complaint. Atkinson was obviously also coordinating his efforts with Schiff.

Let’s also remember that, after Atkinson was interviewed by Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style impeachment committee in September, the results were apparently so damaging to the hoax that Schiff has still refused to release the transcript of that interrogation to this day. Atkinson’s transcript remains the only one of the 29 interview transcripts still being kept under wraps.

Finally, the guys over at The Conservative Treehouse remind us in a great, comprehensive expose’ of Atkinson, that he was also singled out for criticism in last December’s report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz:

Also, in the recent FISA review by the OIG the DOJ inspector general specifically identified issues with the “accuracy reviews” conducted by DOJ-NSD chief legal counsel. Who was that former DOJ-NSD chief legal counsel? That would be current ICIG Michael Atkinson.

Currently, former CIA Director John Brennan is under investigation for his role in the FBI spy operations against the Trump campaign and administration. Brennan is being investigated by U.S. Attorney John Durham, an assignment from AG Bill Barr.

Few people have asked why it would take a U.S. attorney to conduct a review of the CIA considering ICIG Atkinson should have been doing that oversight already. The answer within that non-discussed dynamic points to the reason why Ric Grenell as ODNI was needed.

So today, as you find yourselves going stir crazy as you continue to hole up in your home for fear of contracting a virus, take just a moment to celebrate the great news that your President took the time and political risk in the midst of this crisis to rid our government of this corrupt, malign influence who has done so much damage within our intelligence community.

Uncorking a nice, cold bottle of champagne might be in order.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham Drops the “Jail” Bomb on Judge Jeanine

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

Appearing with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham gave us another dose of big talk Saturday. The Senator who has done a lot of talking and accomplished pretty much nothing in terms of investigating anything for an entire year as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee was once again spouting off on investigating pretty much everybody. At one point in the clip below, you will hear him even promise Pirro’s audience that “half the people involved in the Russia investigation” will end up in jail.

Here’s the thing about this: He’s running out of time. Senate investigations take a lot of time. It can and often does take weeks or even months to get a single witness’s testimony, especially given the willingness of Obama judges on the federal courts to intervene in congressional processes these days. But Graham makes it sound as if he has a grand plan for finally, at long last taking some action in this regard now that the impeachment scam has been disposed of.

Below is a 7:23 clip of the interview, much of which is irrelevant to the subject of this piece. A transcription of several of the key passages follows the clip.

 

Partial transcript:

Pirro: What’s left for Mitt Romney?

Graham: Well, number one, I’m not going to say anything bad about Mitt Romney. I’ve known him for a long time and I think he made a very bad judgment call. I’m not going to question his faith. But let’s see if you and I can figure this out in about two minutes.

Who was behind it [impeachment]? Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi. Not  Mueller, not Watergate prosecutors, not Ken Starr. The 3 most partisan people in the country, who hate Trump’s guts. How did they do it? They impeached the man in 78 days. He couldn’t call a witness; he couldn’t cross-examine anybody; he couldn’t present evidence….[summary of the impeachment scam continues here] this was a bad decision for anybody to vote guilty on these facts.

Pirro: What do they do now? Do they move on?

Graham: I don’t think they can move on, because they’ve got nothing to move on to…

Pirro: Let’s switch it to you guys. Can we expect that you, or Burr as Chairman of Senate Intelligence, may want to look at the whistleblower…the Bidens…James Rich, Chair of Foreign Relations, doesn’t seem to have an appetite. He says “I’ve got other things I’m doing now and I haven’t given it any thought.” Haven’t given it any thought??? America’s been talking about this for 3 months!

Graham: So, we’re not gonna live in a world where, as a Republican, you get investigated from the day you’re sworn in; 3 years later, they’re still coming after you.

Here’s what amazes me. The Russia investigation, what happened? Half the people involved in the Russia investigation are gonna go to jail, and Trump was cleared…

Pirro: Hopefully…

Graham: Well, just hang tight. They come after Trump on Ukraine, and Biden blows up. So, every time they throw a rock at Trump, they get hit.

So, here’s what we should look at: Why did the State Department not act when they were told about the conflict of interest with Hunter Biden regarding Ukraine, right? Who is the whistleblower? Does he have contacts on Schiff’s staff? Did Col. Vindman lead information to the whistleblower? And as to the FISA warrant, how could you sign the warrant four times and not know the thing was off the rails? That’s where I come in.

Pirro: So, you’re going to do something. You want to tell us what you’re going to do?

Graham: Yeah, I’m going to give a list of witnesses to the Department of Justice that I want to call. It’s going to the case agent. I want to find out how this thing got so screwed up. Why didn’t they tell about the Russian source who said the Dossier’s not reliable? How could it be possible that it never goes up to the top?

I want to know what Obama knew about this investigation. I want to call Rosenstein, Sally Yates, Comey, McCabe, and all the people who worked on this case, to find out how it got so off the rails and make sure it never happens again. I want to know who in the White House knew about this counterintelligence investigation against the Republican nominee.

Pirro: [Immediately changes the subject to Joe Manchin’s vote to convict the President. It’s Joe freaking Manchin – who cares?]

Graham: …The reason I’m so upset about this impeachment is it puts every president after Trump at risk. You can’t even pick the phone up as president under this standard.

Pirro: [Changes the subject to Afghanistan.]

[End Transcript]

 

So, several things to unpack here:

  • As is always the case with Senator Graham, what we have here is a mixed bag. Graham continues to promise to perform investigations, which is great if he starts following through with some real action starting now. Not in April, not in June, not in August because by then it will be too late. Now, Senator.
  • It is encouraging that Graham pointedly lists the whistleblower – who we all know is Eric Ciaramella – Adam Schiff’s staff and Alexander Vindman as subjects he plans to pursue with his committee. Yes, Hunter and Joe Biden are important here, but they weren’t part of this coup effort in any real sense. Ciaramella, Vindman and the bad actors on Schiff’s staff – along with Schiff himself, obviously – were a part of it.
  • And how patently absurd is it that U.S. senators are still going on national TV and saying “the whistleblower” when everyone in the room and watching at home knows who the freaking whistleblower really is? This is national insanity. Ciaramella participated in a COUP D’ETAT, folks, and that is treason.
  • But look at Graham giving himself a convenient out on all of this, when he says he’s going to send a list of potential witnesses to the “case agent” for approval. That “case agent” is a guy named John Durham.
  • If Durham is really performing an actual investigation – and I believe he is – then that’s great. Let him determine whether the Senate taking public testimony will interfere with anything he’s doing. But if, as others suspect, Durham and Barr are just playing a delaying game in concert with Graham and other to put this all off until the November elections have come and gone, then not so great, right?
  • When Graham tells Pirro to “just hang tight” on people going to jail, that is an obvious reference to Durham. If you, like me, believe that Durham is actually conducting an investigation designed to prosecute people, then that might be a signal from Graham that he’s been told things are about to start happening on that front.

When you boil this all down, unless Graham really is planning to start an investigation posthaste, then it’s really hard to see why he would keep going on television to talk a good game. Coming as this appearance does this close to election time, his constituents back home are really going to have some pointed questions for him if, come September, he still hasn’t moved on any of this.

It does make sense that Graham and the other Senate committees would let the whole impeachment scam play itself out before opening their own investigations. It also makes sense that Durham would wait until those waters had calmed before moving on any indictments and prosecutions. Timing is very important in all of this.

Here’s the other thing: Durham is going after real justice for real bad actors. Scams like this fake impeachment can be mounted and play out quickly, but real justice in our system takes time. It’s like the difference between a bottle of Welch’s grape juice and a bottle of 2012 Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

In a just world, Attorney General William Barr would announce the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the origins of the impeachment coup d’etat, just as he has Durham investigating the origins of the whole Russia Collusion coup effort. Lacking that, we are left with only Republican-controlled Senate committees to do the investigative work, which will certainly end with a series of criminal referrals. Ultimately, either process will require DOJ to act.

Here’s the key statement Graham made in this entire interview: “So, we’re not gonna live in a world where, as a Republican, you get investigated from the day you’re sworn in; 3 years later, they’re still coming after you.”

Unless Durham is really conducting an earnest investigation that truly will end with a bunch of these people going to jail, and unless Graham and Burr and Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Grassley really do mount major investigations into the origins of the impeachment scam through their committees, that is exactly the world we are going to be living in from now on.

It is crucial to remember that all of this takes place with the November elections looming and the GOP holding onto a tenuous Senate majority. Should the voters decide to award the corrupt Democrats a majority in the Senate, then the hopes of ever bringing any of the coup plotters to justice will end, unless they have already been indicted.

Talk is cheap, gentlemen. Time to move.

That is all.

Rand Paul Exposes the Coup Plotters in a Brilliant Floor Speech

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

Late Tuesday morning, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky delivered one of the great speeches in American history. In the course of just five minutes, Paul exposes the whistleblower who served as the catalyst for this impeachment scam, a coup d’etat on American soil. He exposes the Chief Justice of the United States and Adam Schiff and several Schiff staffers as co-conspirators. And he exposes not one, but two Vindman brothers as also serving as willing co-conspirators in this coup attempt.

This speech is brilliant for its content, its courage, its timing and its delivery. Below is a clip, and a transcript of the key first five minutes of the speech, something I was unable to find anywhere else.

 

 

Here’s the Transcript of the first 5 minutes – the final 90 seconds end up being repetitive:

During the proceedings, I asked a question that was disallowed, and I’m going to ask that question again this morning. Because the Constitution does protect debate, and it does protect the asking of questions.

I think they made a big mistake not allowing my question. My question did not talk about anybody who is a whistleblower; my question did not accuse anybody of being a whistleblower; it did not make a statement believing someone was a whistleblower. I simply named two peoples’ names, because I think it’s very important to know what happened.

We are now finding out that the FISA investigation was predicated upon 17 lies by the FBI, by people at high levels who were biased against the President, and it turns out it was an illegitimate investigation. Everything they did to investigate the President was untrue, and it involved people using the government to do things that should have never been done in the first place.

So I asked this question, and this is my question: Are you aware that the House Committee staffer, Sean Misko, had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while they were at the National Security Council together? How would you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings?

Why did I ask this question? Because there are news reports saying these two people, one of whom works for Adam Schiff, and one of them who worked with this person at the NSC, that they knew each other and had been overheard talking about impeaching the President in the first month of his office. In January of 2017, they were already plotting the impeachment.

And you say, well, we should protect the whistleblower, and the whistleblower deserve anonymity. The law does not preserve anonymity.

His boss is not supposed to say anything about him, he’s not supposed to be fired – I’m for that. But when you get into the details of talking about whistleblowers, there’s a variety of opinions around here.

The greatest whistleblower in American history in all likelihood was Edward Snowden. What do people here want to do with him? Half the people here want to put him to death; the other half want to put him in jail forever. So, it depends on what you blow the whistle on, whether or not they’re for the whistleblower statute. [TRUE]

I’m not for retributions on the whistleblower. I don’t want him to go to jail, I don’t want him to lose his job. But if six people who all worked together at the NSC knew each other and gamed the system, knowing that they would get these protections, they gamed the system in order to try to bring down the President, we should know about that.

If they had extreme bias going into the impeachment, we should know about that.

So, I think the question is an important one, and I think we should still get to the bottom of it.

Were people plotting to bring down the President? They were plotting in advance of the election – were they plotting within the halls of government to bring down the President?

Look, these people also knew the Vindman brothers, who are still in government. So, you’ve got two Vindman brothers over there who know Eric Ciaramella, who also know Sean Misko, who also knew two other people now working on Adam Schiff’s staff.

And Adam Schiff throws his hands up and says, ‘I don’t know who the whistleblower is, I’ve never met him. I have no idea who he is.’

So, if he [Schiff] doesn’t know who he is, the President’s counsel doesn’t know who he is, how does the Chief Justice of the United States know who the whistleblower is? I have no independent confirmation from anyone in the government as to who the whistleblower is.

So, how am I prevented from asking a question, when nobody seems to know who this person is?

My point is, that by having such protections, such overzealous protection, we don’t get to the root of the matter how this started. Because this could happen again.

When the institution of the bureaucracy, the intelligence community with all the power to listen into every phone conversation you have, has political bias and can game the system to go after you, that’s a real worry.

It’s a real worry that they spied on the President, but what if you’re just an average American? What if you’re just a supporter of President Trump, or you’re a Republican or you’re a conservative? Are we not concerned that secret courts could allow for warrants to listen to your phone calls, to tap into your emails, to read your text messages? I’m very concerned about that.

So, we’re going to have this discussion go on. It really isn’t about the whistleblower so much, it’s about reforming government. It’s about limiting the power of what they can do as secret courts.

[End]

Epic. Fantastic. It’s impossible to overstate what a tremendous service Senator Paul did for our country today.

But even after this, after Senator Paul has repeatedly said Ciaramella’s name on the floor of the U.S. Senate, you can count on our corrupt, fake news media to continue its despicable pretense of not knowing the whistleblower’s name.

A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

GOP Senators Should Focus on Eric Ciaramella in any Witness Deal

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

Rumors abound that small groups of Democrat and Republican senators are contemplating a “deal” on senate trial witnesses that would end up with Democrats getting their wish to have John Bolton testify in exchange for Republicans calling the scummy Hunter Biden in to soil the Senate chamber. This would be a terrible deal for the President.

Yes, there is no real doubt that Joe Biden and his son played a sleazy influence peddling game with the Ukraine while Biden was vice president. Yes, there should be legal consequences for both men, although we can be sure that our utterly corrupt Department of Justice will make sure no justice ever arrives for either of them. Yes, it was perfectly valid for President Trump to insist that the Ukrainian government do its duty to investigate the Biden corruption before releasing any U.S. aid to that country.

All of that and so much more is true and right and lovely. But it’s also a distraction from the heart of this impeachment scam, which was concocted out of whole cloth by Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and their highly-paid team of Lawfare contract lawyers, working in concert with their fake “whistleblower,” Eric Ciaramella. Yes, I know we  are all supposed to pretend that we don’t really know that Ciaramella is in fact the fake whistleblower, but we all do know that he is, and I’m not really very good at pretending.

We know without any doubt at all that Ciaramella met with Schiff and his staff well before he filed his fake “whistleblower” claim targeting President Trump. We know there is a very high degree of likelihood that that claim was in fact written at least in part and perhaps entirely by Schiff’s lawyers. We know that Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson himself is an Obama loyalist holdover who illicitly changed the whistleblower rules in order to accommodate Ciaramella’s false claim against the President.

And we know without any doubt whatsoever that Ciaramella himself is an Intelligence Community plant who has been a part of the Deep State’s neverending coup d’etat against this President. This morning, Paul Sperry has a new report at RealClearInvestigations documenting that Ciaramella was already busy conspiring with other plants inside the White House barely two weeks after Mr. Trump took office in 2017.

Sperry identifies one of Ciaramella’s co-conspirators as Sean Misko, who left the White House last summer to join the staff of – wait for it – Adam Schiff! Oh, you don’t sayyyyy.

From the Sperry Report:

Sources told RealClearInvestigations the staffer with whom Ciaramella was speaking was Sean Misko. Both were Obama administration holdovers working in the Trump White House on foreign policy and national security issues. And both expressed anger over Trump’s new “America First” foreign policy, a sea change from President Obama’s approach to international affairs.

“Just days after he was sworn in they were already talking about trying to get rid of him,” said a White House colleague who overheard their conversation.

“They weren’t just bent on subverting his agenda,” the former official added. “They were plotting to actually have him removed from office.”

Misko left the White House last summer to join House impeachment manager Adam Schiff’s committee, where sources say he offered “guidance” to the whistleblower, who has been officially identified only as an intelligence officer in a complaint against Trump filed under whistleblower laws. Misko then helped run the impeachment inquiry based on that complaint as a top investigator for congressional Democrats.

If you want to make a deal for a witness exchange, Republicans, make it for Ciaramella, not Hunter Biden.

Oh, and you might want to make a 2-for-2 deal so that you can also force Mr. Atkinson to testify publicly about his own role in this clear conspiracy to take down a President. As Sperry points out, Atkinson already spent hours testifying in the basement of the Capital Building, but the equally sleazy Adam Schiff still refuses to release the transcript of that testimony:

The investigators say that details about how the whistleblower consulted with Schiff’s staff and perhaps misled Atkinson about those interactions are contained in the transcript of a closed-door briefing Atkinson gave to the House Intelligence Committee last October. However, Schiff has sealed the transcript from public view. It is the only impeachment witness transcript out of 18 that he has not released.

Schiff has classified the document “Secret,” preventing Republicans who attended the Atkinson briefing from quoting from it. Even impeachment investigators cannot view it outside a highly secured room, known as a “SCIF,” in the basement of the Capitol. Members must first get permission from Schiff, and they are forbidden from bringing phones into the SCIF or from taking notes from the document.

Atkinson’s transcript is the only one Schiff has refused to produce. Obviously, the Democrats are afraid to reveal its content to the American public.

If Republican Senators want to call the Democrats’ bluff on calling witnesses, they should be focused on the fake whistleblower and the guy who enabled him, not the sleazy, drug-addled son of a sleazy former vice president.

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.

Alan Dershowitz: The Stalinist Democrats are Making up Crimes

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

Those who dare speak the truth invariably become the first casualties of any communist revolution. – Alan Dershowitz, for those who do not know, is a very liberal longtime professor of constitutional law at Harvard University law school. For years following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and subsequent dissolution of the Soviet Union, conservatives referred to Harvard Law School as the last bastion of communism on the face of the earth. That all ended early in the 21st century, as communism began making its comeback within the ranks of the Democrat Party.

But I digress. Back to Dershowitz.

For many years, Prof. Dershowitz was a frequent contributor for both CNN and Fox News. His appearances have now gone away for the most part as both cable news channels have shied away from airing the views of liberals who actually speak the truth about the never-ending coup mounted by the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation. In fact, Dershowitz says he has has been banned entirely on CNN. Big surprise there.

But Dershowitz still finds his way into the media anyway. On Sunday, he appeared on the John Catsimatidis radio show  to talk about the fake impeachment circus being run by Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan. During the course of this interview, the longtime registered Democrat made some startling accusations about the current leaders of his Party, comparing them to Joseph Stalin and the head of Stalin’s KGB, Lavrentiy Beria.

Here is some of the transcript of that interview [emphasis added is mine]:

They’re very scary. They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican; whether you come from New York or the middle of the country, you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing. The latest twist was people on television, particularly CNN and MSNBC, are saying that if the president or somebody else was to name the whistleblower in the Ukrainian situation, that person would be guilty of a crime. I said in the afternoon yesterday, searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end, I couldn’t find the crime.

It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin, he said, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” Which he really meant, I’ll make up the crime.

And so the Democrats are now making up crimes. First they made up collusion. “Ahh! Collusion. It’s a crime!” I searched the statute books. There’s no crime of collusion except when businessmen get together to collude against the anti-trust laws, but no crime of collusion with a foreign country.

Then after that, they said “obstruction of Congress.”No, no, no, no, no. Obstruction of justice is a crime; obstruction of Congress is part of our system of checks and balances. If you get a subpoena from Congress, and you’re the president or in the executive department, and you think you have an executive privilege, you have an obligation not to respond. That’s not “obstruction of Congress,” that’s checks and balances under our Constitution.

So what we’re seeing, in a desperate effort to try to find crimes against President Trump: they’re just making it up. And that means we are all in danger, because if we can make up a crime — Congressman Cohen of Tennessee said that me and others who appear on Fox essentially were co-conspirators; we’re in on it. He’s now threatening people who are commentators, a liberal Democrat like me, who’s a commentator, that we’re in on it, that we’re co-conspirators. It is such a dangerous development to civil liberties.

The ACLU should be up in arms, but they’re silent.

[End]

Well, of course the ACLU is silent. The ACLU is just another Marxist organization dedicated to undermining the rule of law in the United States, a reality that Dershowitz can’t seem to bring himself to accept. The ACLU only weighs in to promote “freedoms” that serve to undermine the foundations of American liberty and freedom.

So, you won’t see this world-renowned law professor on CNN again, because CNN shares the same goals held by the ACLU. And you won’t see him on Fox News much, if at all, anymore, because those idiots are too busy promoting the rants of the pea-brained hack, Andrew Napolitano.

This is how things work in any communist society: The first thing you do is silence authority figures and experts who refuse to toe the party line. Once that has been accomplished, the media outlets all know that the next step is to silence any journalists who facilitate the airing of those contrarian views.

Management at CNN has spent the last four years systematically ridding its airwaves of all liberal authority figures who dare to speak any truth about the Democrat Party, replacing them all with more cookie-cutter talking points monkeys. The current management at Fox News is now going about doing the same, getting rid of Dershowitz and other liberal truth-tellers and replacing them with talking points monkeys like the nitwit Marie Harf and the corrupt Donna Brazile.

We should fully expect the great Mollie Hemingway to become the next casualty of the Fox purge. Hemingway has been a frequent contributor on Fox for years now, but as we noted yesterday at the Campaign Update, she broke Fox’s idiotic wall of omerta against speaking the name of fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella on-air on Sunday. The cable channel’s leftist management will now come under pressure from their peers to either punish Hemingway or face not being invited to all the best cocktail and dinner parties on the Upper East Side for the foreseeable future.

And you know how the rich, white lefties are about their cocktail and dinner parties: Prof. Dershowitz hasn’t been invited to one in years.

That is all.

Mollie Hemingway Speaks the Name that Shall not be Spoken on Fox News

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

It was a dirty job, but someone needed to do it. – All it took was a set of brass balls, which of course means that none of the male anchors or contributors on Fox or any other cable TV channel would ever dream of doing it. But hey, offsetting the cowardly acts of her male counterparts is why we have the great Mollie Hemingway around in the first place.

Since a long-term, ultimately fatal illness removed Charles Krauthamer from the Fox Report’s nightly panel discussions, Hemingway has become the real prevailing star of that show, although Bret Baier doesn’t invite her on often enough. When she does appear there, Mollie regularly lays the rhetorical wood to arrogant NeverTrump jerk weeds like Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg, or some female DC Swamp dweller like the insufferable A.B. Stoddard.

Hemingway is a true treasure: Never at a loss for words, always with something real and useful to offer, and never afraid to speak truth to power on any topic.

Sunday morning, she appeared on Fox’s Media Buzz program, hosted by Howie Kurtz, on a panel that included the despicable Clinton operative Philip Reines. Although everyone at Fox News, employees and contributors alike, have been ordered by the corrupt clowns who run the channel now to never, never, never, ever mention the name of the fake whistleblower – Eric Sciaramella – Hemingway, when the subject was brought up by Kurtz, essentially risked her gig by defying the male cowards and doing exactly that.

Here’s the clip – let us all bask in its awesomeness:

 

The look on Reines’s face is utterly priceless, and the dishonest response by Kurtz – who is normally a pretty solid guy – pretending to not know whether Ciaramella is in fact the seditious leaker is just cowardly and disgusting.

Hemingway is obviously as sick of the tiresome, false pretense of not knowing the fake whistleblower’s real identity as we all are, and she’s determined to not be a part of it. She is that rarity in today’s national news media – a journalist with actual principles and courage.

Given the cowardly and corrupt nature of the current management at Fox News, her effort to try to force Fox to end the absurd farce could well end up costing her her contributor status there. At the very least, it is likely to make Baier less willing to keep inviting her to participate in his panels. That would be a shame for the viewing public, but everyone should be grateful to Ms. Hemingway for having the courage of her convictions and refusing to pretend not to know how to pronounce the word “Ciaramella.”

God bless her.

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.

Thanks, Democrats: Impeachment Gives us the Creepy Child Porn Lawyer

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

First, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies gave us the Creepy Porn Lawyer; now, they give us the Creepy Child Porn Lawyer. – Mark Zaid, the lawyer for Eric Ciaramella, Adam Schiff’s fake whistleblower, is a very strange man. Since he decided to make himself a public figure last week in his illegitimate defense of his seditious client’s mythical “right to anonymity,” enterprising individuals have dug up all manner of really odd stuff about him, thanks to his habit of mouthing off on social media accounts at Twitter and Instagram.

Thanks to those efforts, we now know the following stuff about Mr. Zaid, some of which has already been reported at the Campaign Update:

He started bragging about his role in the ongoing coup d’etat effort just 10 days after Donald Trump was inaugurated to the Presidency;

He has used his social media accounts over the last three years to solicit fake “whistleblowers,” making him sort of a digital treasonous ambulance chaser;

He likes to visit DisneyWorld alone and take pictures of himself hanging out with all the cartoon characters and very young girls who play the princesses there;

Image result for mark zaid disney princess photos

He likes watching Disney Girl videos on his YouTube channel:

And, perhaps the coup de gras of his involvement in this whole coup d’etat, he actually put up this tweet in 2018:

So, he’s proud to have helped get pedophiles embedded within our federal bureaucracy, complete with security clearances.

There seem to be several patterns forming up here related to this guy, and none of them are pretty. Given this ugly portfolio, can there be any doubt at all that Mr. Zaid, esq. will end up with a very big contributor’s contract with CNN in the very near future?

You just can’t make these people up, folks. You really, truly can’t.

That is all.

Fake Whistleblower’s Lawyer Outs the Coup d’etat in a Tweet

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

You seriously could never in a million years make this stuff up. – The lawyer for the leaker/spy Eric Ciaramella, whom the media refer to as a “whistleblower” so they can pretend to not know his name, was himself in the news last night when some enterprising soul published several tweets from his Twitter account from 2017.

The lawyer’s name is Mark Zaid, a leftist activist who has been literally shopping around for fake “whistleblowers” since the start of the Trump Administration. To his credit, unlike most leftist activists who skulk around in the dark trying to disguise their seditious efforts to undermine the country, Zaid has worn his beliefs on his sleeve via his Twitter account, littering his messages with hashtags like #rebellion, #impeachment, #resistance and even, yes, #coup, as in this message below:

Note that Zaid relates the beginning of the #coup to the elevation of long-time Deep State skunk Dana Boente to the post of Acting Attorney General after President Trump fired fellow Deep State skunk Sally Yates. Hey, guess where Boente serves today?  Why, he is the chief legal counsel at Christopher Wray’s dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence, aka, the FBI.

Now you know one big reason why so much Deep State skunkery continues to emanate from that dumpster fire agency.

Here’s another tweet lawyer Zaid issued in July of 2017:

We will get rid of him.” The “we” no doubt referring to the coup cabal embedded within the FBI and DOJ, and the then-young Mueller Witch Hunt that was then in the process of becoming staffed with leftist activist thugs just like Zaid.

There are more, including one in which Zaid predicts that CNN will play a key role in the ultimate removal of Trump from office. Wonder how he knew that?

Do any of you still think that we are not in the midst an ongoing, three-year-long coup d’etat?

This is deadly serious stuff, folks, a real, true attempt by a major political party and the national news media to overturn a national election. This isn’t happening in Venezuela or Chile or Nicaragua or some other banana republic: This is happening in the United States of America.

If the target of the coup, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words that drive lefties, progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists and all the other things we call “Democrats” crazy) is worried out it, though, he isn’t showing it. In fact, during his rally last night in Monroe, Louisiana, he hilariously read Zaid’s coup tweets to the audience:

“It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And you know who helps them? These people right back here – the media.”

Exactly.

That is all.

Project Veritas’ Jeffrey Epstein Video Confirms What We Already Knew About the Media

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

Here are some things to understand and remember about the video released on Tuesday by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas in the context of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal:

First, for those who haven’t seen it yet, let’s review the video – here’s the clip:

So, there we have the co-anchor of ABC’s 20/20 program – which I honestly thought had been cancelled about 15 years ago – Amy Robach, admitting live and on camera that she had the whole Jeffrey Epstein story, complete with information about his associations with such luminaries as Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz, three solid years ago. But the story was quashed by higher-ups at ABC News and never made it to air. What a surprise, huh?

Ok, what was happening three years ago, during 2016? More to the point, who was running for the office of the presidency on the Democrat Party ticket three years ago? That’s right: The Pantsuit Princess, the nominal wife of Bill Clinton.

Is there anyone out there today who is naive enough to believe that ABC News did not kill the Epstein story as a favor to the Coughing Crook’s campaign? If so, you are hopeless.

But what about Robach’s statement yesterday? Well, she said what she had to say to keep her high-paying job at ABC – no mystery there at all. For grins, here’s what she said:

“As the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts [Giuffre] didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations.”

No doubt, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh laughed his ass off at that part about “ABC’s editorial standards.” ABC certainly had no problem at all throwing any and all “standards” of journalism out the window when it gladly aired multiple abjectly false accusations at him that were unsupported by any “corroborating evidence” whatsoever during his confirmation hearings a year ago.

Nor has ABC had the slightest compunction about airing all manner of completely uncorroborated accusations leveled by a parade of attention-seekers at President Donald Trump over the past four years. Nor did ABC News rely on any standards whatsoever when it participated in the libelous media feeding frenzy related to a bunch of teenagers from Covington Catholic high school.

In today’s news media – not just ABC, but all of our national news media – referring to “editorial standards” is nothing more than the standard dodge used to justify not reporting any damaging information about Democrat politicians and depraved movie stars.

Remember, the Jeffrey Epstein story and Bill Clinton’s involvement with him has been circulating for 20 years now. Two solid decades, and we are to believe that the only person in our national corrupt news media who had the story on it just three years ago is Amy Robach?

Please. Every national news organization in this country has known about Jeffrey Epstein and his connection to Bill Clinton for not just years, but DECADES. Yet, until Epstein was taken into custody in early July, virtually none of them had allowed any reporting on the matter at all.

Then, when the federal government’s most high-profile prisoner dies under circumstances so absurdly suspicious that not even writers for CSI:Miami could have imagined them, our corrupt news media in unison forms a protective circle around the ridiculous narrative issued by the Bureau of Prisons and the interminably corrupt FBI. Not a smidgen of skepticism from not just ABC, but NBC, CBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN or even from Fox News about an official narrative with so many holes in it that it could be sold in the supermarket as Swiss cheese.

This is a wall of intentional media ignorance. It is the same wall we see formed up today around the identity of Adam Schiff’s fake whistleblower. Eric Ciaramella’s name has now been out there for weeks, but we still have fake journalists throughout the corrupt news media pretending not to know who he is, including Fox’s Bret Baier, who conducted a five-minute panel discussion on the subject last night while pretending not to know how to pronounce “Ciaramella.”

This theater of the absurd on a grand scale.

On my weekly interview with host Greg Budell on Newstalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL on Tuesday, I compared today’s corrupt U.S. media behavior to that of the German press during the years just before and during WWII.

America’s news media today operates on the exact same principles enforced then by Nazi leader Joseph Goebbels. The media has a daily narrative, drawn up in coordination with and supporting the goals of a national political party, and any reporting that conflicts with or would do harm to that narrative or party is quashed by higher-ups.

This is not just despicable behavior by these corrupt media organizations: It is in fact dangerous, a real and compelling threat to the survival of our nation in its current form. The freedom of the press was enshrined in the first amendment to our constitution because the founders of our Republic knew that the Fourth Estate played a vital role as the public’s watchdog, there to hold people in power accountable.

Because, when politicians hungry for power have no one there to hold them accountable, their behavior invariably becomes increasingly depraved and despotic. This is exactly the dynamic we have seen from the leaders of the Democrat Party since early 2016, when they had our FBI, DOJ and intelligence community actively attempting to fix a national election, and then lead a literal coup d’etat effort on U.S. soil.

That effort continues to this day in the form of the Schiff/Pelosi impeachment circus. These people are power-mad and will never stop because literally no one in our corrupt national news media makes any real effort to hold them accountable for their seditious actions.

Yesterday’s Project Veritas video is a landmark event, mainly because it only confirms yet again what we already knew: Our news media is hopelessly corrupt and a true danger to our society.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Coup d’etat Playbook Once Again Lands on “Obstruction”

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

Holy crap, we’re back to “obstruction” again. – Every American who was awake during 2017 will remember how, when their whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy quickly ran aground on the shoals of truth and reality, the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation immediately shifted the focus of the Mueller witch hunt to trying to dummy up a case against President Trump for “obstruction of justice.”

In support of that tactic, Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media began characterizing literally any action the accused POTUS took to defend himself as somehow being “evidence” of “obstruction.” The very word in fact lost all real meaning as it became just a catch-all for every defensive act, no matter how innocuous it might be.

Lo and behold, on Monday we arrived right back at that very same point again. With their initial justification for kicking off this fake impeachment scam, i.e., the allegation of a ‘quid pro quo’ taking place during the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, having collapsed to the point that the Democrats are now pretending the “whistleblower” who started it all now apparently no longer exists, Adam Schiff made it clear during a press availability that the goal posts have now shifted to yet another vague “obstruction’ allegation.

Here is a clip of Schiff’s remarks, followed by a transcript for those who still like to read stuff:

Here’s the transcript of Pencil Neck’s remarks:

Today we had additional scheduled depositions with the top lawyer for the National Security Council, as well as Mr. Blair from the OMB and someone who worked closely with Mick Mulvaney. Both of them defied congressional subpoenas and refused to appear for their scheduled depositions, as has been the case with other witnesses who have done the same thing.

This will be further evidence of the Administration’s efforts to obstruct the lawful and constitutional duties of congress. I would also say, and we expect the witnesses who we’ve subpoenaed to come in this afternoon [garbled] to also be no-shows, this will only further add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of congress charge against the President.

Indeed, in the Nixon impeachment there was an article of impeachment based on the obstruction of congress that itemized each of the subpoenas the White House had defied. Well, today we have four additional subpoenas to add to the list of a potential charge against the President of the United States and his obstruction of its constitutional duties.

[End]

So, just as in the playbook used for the whole Russia Collusion scam, the Schiff/Pelosi Impeachment scam now shifts away from the failed original allegation to the catch-all tactic of characterizing any and every defensive action taken by the White House as “obstruction of congress.”

The pathological Schiff’s comparison of this current scam to the Nixon impeachment process is both laughable and heinously disgusting. There are three very key differences between the two situations:

  1. The impeachment process of Nixon was kicked off by a real, true vote of the full House of Representatives on February 6, 1974 to establish a real, true formal impeachment process. The Schiff/Pelosi scam was kicked off by unilateral decree by the Speaker, ostensibly in response to a fake complaint filed a fake whistleblower.
  2. The 1973 impeachment vote by the House received bipartisan support – last week’s sham vote to simply continue Pelosi’s unlawful process did not.
  3. In the end, the House impeachment process had identified a long list of real, actual criminal actions taken by President Nixon and his staff. Today’s scam process has not only failed to identify any actual criminal actions on the part of the President or anyone who works for him – other than the fake whistleblower himself, perhaps – we haven’t even seen anyone allege any actual crimes have taken place.

All we have as of today are Schiff’s phony complaints about “obstruction of congress” because Administration official are defying his sham “subpoenas.” Those “subpoenas” in fact have no force of law because the House has to this point failed to legally establish a formal impeachment process. They are in fact nothing more than mendacious letters that contain no enforcement mechanism.

So, we’re back to “obstruction” one more time, and if that tells us anything, it tells us for certain sure that Pencil Neck and his gang of circus clowns are stuck holding another big ol’ bag of nothing.

That is all.

No, the Whistleblower is Not Really Willing to Answer GOP Questions

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

Dear House Republicans: If you fall for this ruse, you deserve whatever you get. – In what House Republicans are correctly referring to as a “Sunday narrative ambush,” the Democrat/media/deep state axis of disinformation spent all day claiming that Adam Schiff’s first fake “whistleblower,” revealed by Paul Sperry and RealClearInvestigations last week to be CIA analyst and John Brennan acolyte Eric Ciaramella, is suddenly “willing to answer questions” from Republicans as the impeachment scam continues to barrel down its fake tracks.

The deep state leaker’s lead attorney, Mark Zaid, tweeted out the offer just as the Sunday morning fake news programs were cranking up for their weekly parade of disinformation:

See the catch there? The offer is not for Ciaramella to offer public testimony, live and on national television: The offer is for “GOP” to “ask written questions” of Ciaramella through his lawyer team, which we already know has been in hand-to-hand coordination with Schiff and his staff. This, of course, would inevitably mean that any answers to “GOP” questions would be written by a team of government and high-paid private lawyers at the Compass Rose Legal Group, where Zaid has his practice.

In an interview with an always-eager-to-conspire CBS News on Saturday, Zaid hilariously claimed that his client “wants to be as bipartisan as possible” during this process, all while remaining anonymous. Of course, this is not an offer for cooperation or bipartisanship at all: It’s simply a tactic deployed to control the narrative around Ciaramella and his spying on the President of the United States.

Zaid claimed to have made the offer through Devin Nunes, ranking Republican on Schiff’s clown committee, but House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Face the Nation that the first he’d heard about it was when asked a question about it on-air:

To be perfectly clear about this: Ciaramella is not only unwilling to answer any GOP questions, he is unwilling to personally field any questions at all about playing his role in serving as the deep state actor who triggered this entire fantasy play. Any questions that go through his lawyers will be answered by his lawyers, carefully scripted to ensure that no real information is communicated and that the answer fully supports the Axis of Disinformation’s preferred narrative.

I keep waiting for McCarthy and other GOP congressional leaders to wake up to the reality that the Democrats are embarked on not only an effort to take down President Trump, but an effort to destroy the Republican Party as a viable national political entity.

After three and a half years of a perpetual, neverending deep state search to find some evidence – any old evidence would do – of wrongdoing by Mr. Trump, we know he has done nothing wrong and does not deserve this fate. But if McCarthy and his fellow House Republicans fall for this latest transparent tactic and actually demean themselves and the process by submitting written questions to Ciaramella’s lawyers, then their Party richly deserves whatever fate the Democrats wish to deal them.

The only proper answer to Zaid’s fake offer would be for McCarthy and Nunes and other Republicans to take the floor of the House today and spend hours revealing Ciaramella’s identity and biography to the world. It is long past time to quit cooperating with this Lawfare-inspired charade that paints him as anything other than a disloyal spy and leaker of highly-classified information.

That is all.

Trump Promises to Expose Alexander Vindman “Real Soon”

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

“We’ll be showing that to you real soon, OK?…you’ll be seeing very soon what comes out and then you can ask the question in a different way.”

That was the answer President Donald Trump gave on Sunday to reporters who asked what evidence has has  that Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman – who is very likely the second fake whistleblower recruited by Adam Schiff – is a Never Trumper. The President spoke to the press as he disembarked Marine 1 upon his return from New York City.

The President also chastised the corrupt news media for its ongoing refusal to do its job to report the real identity of the first fake whistleblower, who anyone paying attention already knows is another Obama holdover snake named Eric Ciaramella, telling the assembled fake reporters, “You know who it is. You just don’t want to report it. CNN knows who it is but you don’t want to report it. And you would be doing the public a service if you did.”

 

Here is the full video of the President’s impromptu presser:

 

The promise to expose Vindman even further than he’s already been exposed might be based in part on statements made on Twitter by Retired Lt. Colonel (LTTC) Jim Hickman, who worked with then Major Vindman during military exercises in Germany. Here is the text of those tweets:

LTC Jim Hickman: I know LTC Alex Vindman from a Combined US-Russian exercise called Atlas Vision 12 in Grafenwoher, GE. He worked w/the Russian Embassy & I was assigned to the JMTC (Joint Multinational Training Command), w/in USAREUR (US Army Europe).

He worked coordination w/the Russian 15th Peacekeeping Brigade, & I was in charge of all Simulations planning, as well as assisting the USAREUR Lead Planner as the Senior Military Planner. The following account of LTC Vindman’s words & actions are completely accurate to the best of my recollection & have been corroborated by others.

We interacted on several different occasions throughout the planning cycle, but it was during the actual execution of the exercise, that we had an issue relevant to his recent testimony.

As stated earlier, Atlas Vision 12 was conducted at JMTC in the VBS2 (Virtual Battle Simulations 2) Classrooms for Simulation. Vindman, who was a Major at the time, was sitting in one of the classrooms talking to the US and Russian Soldiers, as well as the young Officers & GS Employees about America, Russia, & Obama.

He was apologetic of American culture, laughed about Americans not being educated or worldly, & really talked up Obama & globalism to the point of uncomfortable. He would speak w/the Russian Soldiers & laugh as if at the expense of the US personnel.

It was so uncomfortable & unprofessional, one of the GS employees came & told me everything above. I walked over & sat w/in earshot of Vindman, & sure enough, all was confirmed.

One comment truly struck me as odd, & it was w/respect to American’s falsely thinking they’re exceptional, when he said, “He [Obama] is working on that now.” And he said it w/a snide ‘I know a secret’ look on his face.

I honestly don’t know what it meant, it just sounded like an odd thing to say. Regardless, after hearing him bash America a few times in front of subordinates, Russians, & GS Employees, as well as, hearing an earful about globalization, Obama’s plan, etc…I’d had enough.

I tapped him on the shoulder & asked him to step outside. At that point I verbally reprimanded him for his actions, & I’ll leave it at that, so as not to be unprofessional myself.

The bottom-line is LTC Vindman was a partisan Democrat at least as far back as 2012. So much so, junior officers & soldiers felt uncomfortable around him.

This is not your professional, field-grade officer, who has the character & integrity to do the right thing. Do not let the uniform fool you…he is a political activist in uniform. I pray our nation will drop this hate, vitriol & division, & unite as our founding fathers intended!

As for Ciaramella, the corrupt news media is not only maintaining its conspiratorial wall of silence on reporting his real identity, today it even resorted to issuing false reports about his willingness to testify before congress:

This is is simply CBS – whose fake report was echoed across social media by most other corrupt media organizations – willingly parroting the false statements of Ciaramella’s attorneys at the Compass Rose Law Firm.

As you wade through all the fog the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies put out each day to confused and deceive the public, it’s important to remember that President Trump knows everything that is going on here. He knows the truth about these myriad CIA-associated spies embedded in the federal administrative state; he knows who the fake whistleblowers really are and that they were actually recruited for their roles by Schiff and Nancy Pelosi. He knows that the Democrat/media impeachment circus is just the latest episode on the ongoing three-year-long coup d’etat effort to take him down.

Most importantly, he knows that the Democrat/media state of panic has nothing to do with any “quid pro quo” related to Ukraine, and everything to do with his mention of Crowdstrike and the DNC server during his July 25 call with President Zelensky. And he fully understands that the ongoing, rising panic from his enemies means he and William Barr and John Durham are hovering directly over the target.

That is all.

Why Paul Sperry’s Outing Of the Whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella, Is Important

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

The media wall of conspiratorial silence has been breached. – The identity of the fake “whistleblower” who conspired with Adam Schiff and his staff to serve as the kicking-off point for the Democrat/media-driven impeachment scam has been widely known for weeks now. It has been so widely known, in fact, that Paul Sperry, in his revelatory report on RealClearInvestigations, said this:

“… a handful of former colleagues have compiled a roughly 40-page research dossier on him. A classified version of the document is circulating on Capitol Hill, and briefings have been conducted based on it. One briefed Republican has been planning to unmask the whistleblower in a speech on the House floor.

“On the Internet, meanwhile, Ciaramella’s name for weeks has been bandied about on Twitter feeds and intelligence blogs as the suspected person who blew the whistle on the president. The mainstream media are also aware of his name.”

Yet, despite the broad knowledge of Ciaramella’s identity as the leaker – that’s really all he is – the fake news media has been so intimately complicit in the impeachment scam that literally every major outlet has played along with the pretense that he somehow deserves protection under a “whistleblower” law that doesn’t even apply to accusations made against any sitting president. As an arm of RealClearPolitics, a news aggregation site whose average of polls is regularly cited by every major news organization on a daily basis, RealClearInvestigations is in fact a part of the mainstream media and thus became the first to break through that solid wall of conspiratorial media silence Wednesday night.

“Everyone knows who he is. CNN knows. The Washington Post knows. The New York Times knows. Congress knows. The White House knows. Even the president knows who he is,” said Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst.

While conservative websites like The Gateway Pundit and The Conservative Treehouse revealed the leaker’s likely identity weeks ago, it was important for a mainstream media outlet to break through that conspiratorial wall in order to deny the ability of Democrat activist outlets to claim Ciaramella’s identity was somehow “confidential.” That excuse is now gone, although most of those outlets – including the increasingly swampy Fox News – continue to refuse to report the story this morning.

Make no mistake about it, that wall of conspiratorial silence constituted a direct assault not just on President Donald Trump, whose presidency is threatened by the false accusations made by this deep state functionary, but on the American people and their right to know who and what is behind all of this. The thought that the 2016 presidential election could be overturned based on accusations made by an accuser who would never be confronted by the accused or even identified to the public is the most un-American concept ever devised by political minds.

The utter mendacity behind that scheme becomes crystal clear now that we know who this guy really is:

– Ciaramella is a long-time associate of senior staff for Adam Schiff;

– Ciaramella has worked at various times for John Brennan, Susan Rice, Joe Biden and other Democrat skunks;

– In 2015 and 2016, Ciaramella worked on Ukraine policy with Biden and never raised a peep of alarm over Biden and his son’s obvious influence-peddling operation there;

– He was an Obama holdover on the initial Trump NSC staff, led by deep state snake H.R. McMaster, serving there until mid-2017 when he was revealed to be a serial leaker of classified information;

– While working at the NSC, Ciaramella was in fact instrumental in creating the false “Putin fired Comey” narrative that helped create the rationale for appointing a special counsel;

– Instead of being fired on the spot, McMaster intervened on his behalf and sent him to work at the CIA;

– Ciaramella was not on the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky, and has zero first-hand knowledge of anything that was said on that call;

– All of the allegations made in his false “whistleblower” complaint come from second-and-third-hand hearsay accounts, with much of it very likely coming from fellow deep state functionary Alexander Vindman, who is most likely the second fake whistleblower in this impeachment scam.

Ciramella is, in other words, the classic example of the sort of anti-American deep state functionaries who remain embeded throughout the federal bureaucracy, especially in our intelligence community, Department of Justice and at the State Department. Obama literally filled our government with this kind of disloyal hack, people who have no respect whatsoever for our nation’s electoral process, and who place their their political ideology above the good of the country.

No wonder Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and the disloyal hacks who infest our national news media outlets were so desperate to keep his identity a secret. Paul Sperry and the editors at RealClearInvestigations deserve medals for breaching that wall of conspiratorial silence.

That is all.

Paul Sperry, RealClearInvestigations Out Schiff’s Fake Whistleblower

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

His name is Eric Ciaramella.  – He is a 33 year-old registered Democrat, an Obama holdover who worked as a minor functionary on the NSC staff at the White House until mid-2017, where he was initially protected by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster. He was dismissed after he was identified as one of the myriad habitual leakers at the NSC.

He has exactly zero first-hand knowledge of anything that was said or not said on the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky. He has close ties to John Brennan, Joe Biden, the DNC and Adam Schiff’s staff.

All of that and much, much more is revealed in today’s story at RealClearPolitics authored by the excellent reporter Paul Sperry. Everyone should read the story in full – I just wanted to post it here to do my part to ensure it receives as much distribution as possible today, since it is likely that most of the fake national news media will do everything they can to ignore the story, at least until the House Democrats have held their vote on their fake “resolution” tomorrow.

That is all.
