Is It Possible the Flynn Persecution is Finally Over?

The Appeals Court ruled by a two to one vote to order U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan to stop torturing General Flynn and dismiss the case.  Of course I’m waiting for Sullivan to appeal to a higher court or just to defy the order.  We’ll have to wait to see if this is the end but it’s surely a step in the right direction.

This may be a good test for what kind of judicial and bureaucratic disobedience we’ll see in the future.  With the Supreme Court defying the Constitution at every turn and the Deep State in open revolt I won’t be surprised by any illegal actions taken by our enemies.  But it certainly will open a lot of eyes that have been sleepwalking for years.

 

 

What Do the Deplorables Want?  How About, What Do I Want?

So, this is a loaded question.  There isn’t a monolithic consciousness that pervades all of the Right and aligns everyone’s opinions.  I have friends who really only care about the Supreme Court and are praying for a Roberts-proof lock on the voting.  Then I know guys who more than anything else in the world want to see Comey and all his superiors all the way up to Barry O get frog-marched into prison for their treasonous crimes over the last several years.  And I know plenty of people who believe as an article of faith that unless the illegal immigrants are ejected by the tens of millions in the next couple of years that America will be finished.

Look at this list and the other priorities you know about; First Amendment violations, Second Amendment outrages, social media discrimination, job offshoring, etc.  These priorities are all over the place.  What pattern or organizing principle can clarify how all of these goals are related?

A couple of years ago I wrote a post in which I compared the present illegal immigration situation to a sinking ship.  The steps I outlined to solve the problem were:

  • Step One – Plug the hole.
  • Step Two – Pump out the water.
  • Step Three – Repair the damage.
  • Step Four – Review cause of crash and take measures to prevent recurrence.

I laid out what each of these steps translated into with respect to the immigrant problem but it’s easy enough to guess what they were.

Thinking back to that analogy and looking at all the other problems listed above I have to modify the model.  It’s not as if we struck a reef and a hole has to be repaired.  It’s like a group of maniacal saboteurs armed with explosives has systematically blasted a dozen separate holes in the hull and is in fact still setting up additional charges.  In a situation like that plugging holes is not the first order of business.  The first job is to liquidate the saboteurs.

For that reason, I agree with the folks who want to prosecute the Coup and throw the book at them.  These people are an existential threat to us and as long as they are still in place, we will never make any progress on wresting control of our lives back into our own hands.  Comey, Brennan, Clapper and the rest of the conspirators have attempted to overthrow the lawfully elected President of the United States and although they failed, they are still walking the streets unpunished and waiting to get back to work as soon as they have another chance.  These people are a de facto oligarchy that decide what is allowed to occur in the federal government and even who is allowed to run it.

Since J. Edgar Hoover started blackmailing Jack Kennedy back in the 1960s the security apparatus has been dictating policy from behind the scenes and controlling many of the elected officials that we thought were the decision makers.  Does it go above these coup leaders?  Maybe we’ll find out.  If the lower level guys squeal on the mid-level rats I would imagine that anything is possible.  But this will require that William Barr is both genuinely patriotic and absolutely fearless.  It’s hard to believe that we could be that lucky.  Once again, we’re about to find out.  It’s way past the time for Barr to start getting results from Durham’s investigations.  After the acquittal some people have stated that the first indictments are about to be handed down in the next few weeks.  Well, I’ve heard that many times before.  But I’m interested in seeing what is the result.  As stated above I thing that prosecuting these people is the only way to head off further damage to our country.  Otherwise we’re just chasing yesterday’s disaster and never catching up.

Senators are Saying the Farce May be Over By Sunday

Apparently more senators are coming forward to tell the press that the Republicans have the votes to deny witnesses and move on to the final vote this weekend.

Good.  It’s about time.  I can’t wait for the State of the Union Address.  Maybe Pelosi will boycott it and we won’t have to see her hideous face.

 

Why the U.S. Security Establishment Can’t Stand Trump by Steve Cortes

Real Clear Politics has an excellent article that lays out how and why the Security Agencies have attempted to prevent President Trump from wresting control of the United States from their control.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2020/01/25/why_the_us_security_establishment_cant_stand_trump.html

He lays out the steps methodically and clearly.  Reading just how treasonous these swamp dwellers are I fervently hope that President Trump succeeds in sends all of the ringleaders to prison for several decades.  They truly are despicable.

Codevilla addresses the new reality of the Deep State justifying extra-legal activities based on bureaucratic authority

https://amgreatness.com/2019/12/18/for-whom-the-new-rules/

His point is if the Deep State agents who committed these crimes aren’t punished then the Republicans will have to embrace the same tactics purely out of self defense.  That is the same slippery slope that led the Romans to dictatorship.

 

All I Want for Christmas 2019

Four years ago, I had to listen to every poll, every pundit telling me that Trump wouldn’t really run.  Then he would be finished after the comments he made in the first debate.  Then he would be out by Super Tuesday.  Then he couldn’t win the Nomination.  And finally, Hillary was so far ahead that it would be a landslide.

Then I had to stay up all election night to laugh at the hilarious Hillary backers screaming and crying and threatening to kill themselves.  Good times, good times.

This year I’m going to cut to the chase.  Even the New York Times and the Cook Report are coming as close as they can to admitting that all the Midwest states that gave Donald Trump the presidency last time are already set up to repeat the experience again. https://cookpolitical.com/index.php/analysis/national/national-politics/its-2016-all-over-again

I’m not going to worry about the President winning re-election, that’s a given.  What I want to focus on is whether the 2020 compilation video of screaming crying Democrat voters will be as good as the 2016 one.  It won’t be easy.  Rachel Maddow, Miley Cyrus, that crazy blue haired girl who swears she’s going to die unless someone fixes this.  Such memories.

I remember after the 2016 election I was quite busy at work for several weeks so I didn’t have a chance to absorb all the Democrat reactions that were captured on the internet.  But after Christmas I had some time off and I went back and looked at these reactions.  I confess I laughed so hard I think I bruised some ribs.  But it was well worth it.  I was euphoric for a month.

So now I want that feeling back.  But how do I get through a whole year before it can happen?  Well, my only hope is a string of Durham indictments during the holiday season.  A couple around Thanksgiving and then a bunch more between Christmas and New Year would be about right.

I know, I know I sound pretty mean.  But think about all the Trump associates like General Flynn, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone who were railroaded and terrorized by a witch-hunting mob of prosecutors who knew it was all made up.  What do you suppose would be poetic justice for that kind of behavior?  How about being frog-marched out of their homes at 3 am in front of the rolling video cameras of a tipped off journalist?  How about being cross-examined under oath and being forced to choose between a plea bargain that puts them behind bars for several years and facing a jury trial where they might end up with a twenty-year sentence?

If the shoe were suddenly on the other foot do you suppose it might give them pause and possibly convince them to turn state’s evidence and rat on Loretta Lynch or John Brennan or James Clapper?  It would be fun to find out.

So that’s what I’m asking Santa Claus for this year.  James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr behind bars.  It doesn’t seem like too much.  After all I’ve been a good boy.

 

post script – Looks like my wish may e coming true and before Thanksgiving!

Crushing the Coup is Not Optional

Last Monday I put up a post about Matt Taibbi’s article on the “permanent coup” going on inside the Deep State against President Trump.  On Friday I was listening to the Voice of Saruman (aka the ZMan) on his weekly podcast and at minute 35 he had a segment on The Permanent Coup!  It was his thoughts on Taibbi’s article.  The ZMan read a good chunk of the article aloud and then gave his take on it.  I think he said just about what I said agreeing with Taibbi.  Apparently great minds think alike.  Well, on some things anyway.  Basically, the premise is if the security state gets to decide who can be president then we’re already in a post-democratic country and it’s only a matter of time before the peasants grab their torches and pitchforks.  The ZMan took things a little farther than I did and said he thinks the chances of reforming the security agencies is very slim.  Come to think of it, I think Taibbi came to a similar conclusion and sort of predicted that a reaction in the form of a dictatorial move could be imminent.

So, listening to the podcast got me thinking about all this again.  I used to think that enduring the “Resistance” was just the price we had to pay to get on with the job of changing the Republican Party.  But now I see the Deep State as a parasite that has hijacked the government and subverted the lawful working of our democracy.  And the more I thought about it the more convinced I became that firing, prosecuting and imprisoning the conspirators was just as important as the other priorities of the Trump administration.  All the way back to J. Edgar Hoover the FBI has been blackmailing American presidents and calling the shots behind the scenes.  After the Patriot Act, they’ve been given surveillance weapons that in concert with Democrat allies in the Courts, Media and Congress can disrupt every action of an Administration that they don’t like.

And it gets worse.  The Democrats and probably some of the imbecilic Republicans are willing to go down this road.  They used the Mueller investigation to hound out of office and even imprison men that had done nothing wrong.  They are trying to delegitimize a presidency and criminalize the normal workings of the executive branch.  Really, the only way forward in this situation is to have Barr start firing the upper echelons of all the intelligence agencies until they run out of cabalists.  And not just the first couple of rungs.  He’ll have to decimate the upper management level in order to demoralize the middle management layer enough to start getting the cooperation needed.  What is needed is a whistleblower.  And the only way to get one is to remove the senior cabalists and thus remove the fear they inspire in their subordinates.

But will Barr do it?  He worked with all of these guys for years and probably belongs to the same clubs and social organizations they do.  He probably understands their point of view and the elitist attitude that informs it.  And he probably realizes how deadly serious are the consequences of crossing these people.

But here is where I differ from those on the dissident right.  I think it will happen.  I think that we have reached a point where our side knows it’s no longer possible to kowtow to the Deep State.  I think it will happen.  Maybe heads won’t actually roll but there will be criminal indictments and convictions and powerful men will go to prison.  I think it will happen and I know it has to if we are going to remain a free nation and not an Orwellian nightmare state.

Barr has been pursuing the origins of the Russiagate scam and it appears he has managed to unravel a loose end.  If he indicts some of the middle rankers like Peter Strzok or even reaches up to McCabe that should go a long way to getting one of these rats to sing.  So, I remain hopeful.

But as I said at the beginning, nailing one of these rats is almost useless.  The whole rotten structure of the intelligence agencies has to demolished and rebuilt on a basis that recognizes the primacy of the President’s authority over it.  Without that we’ll be back where we are now sooner or later.  So right up there with “build that wall” should “drain that swamp.”
