Little Brian Stelter: Say, Now That Our Newest Coup Attempts Are Failing, Maybe It's Time to Dust Off Our First Coup Plan, Invoking the 25th Amendment

You're not supposed to bat around the whole lineup if you keep striking out.

Yesterday, CNN announced that, with Russia Hoax 2.0 failing, they were going back to Russia Hoax 1.0-- claiming that Trump lied to Mueller or something.

Something Mueller himself was unable to establish.

Now they're going back ever further into the lineup.

Now they're trotting out the 25th Amendment coup plan again.

41 The investigations will never end. This is the new status quo. The 25th gambit will eventually enter the lineup for real, in all likelihood.

But when impeachment is over in a few months, I expect the next play will be SDNY investigation of the Trump Organization and campaign.

25th amendment play maybe after that.

43 And the 25th Amendment is even harder to work than impeachment.



Of course for the more excitable here, this is an acknowledgement from CNN that the Democrats have nothing. Nothing at all here in Ukraine. And all that this has accomplished is bore the public even more with "Get Trumpy! - The Musical!" and out a whole lot of people that they should have preferred stayed undercover.

Trump anticipated this more than a week ago when he told the Washington press corps that "Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind."

He's not wrong.

It's just about owning every minute of the news cycle so we don't start talking about stuff like immigration, world stability, the economy, or Trump's general spine and strength. So when one of their games gets a little tiresome, they have another to fall back on. The four or five assorted topics are by design.

The entire Democrat field is filled with unwell people, and that fat little butterball starts talking this crap again.

Biden's eye filled up with blood in the middle of a debate, Buttjudgdgd is gay, maybe have major fecal incontinence, Warren's face is stretched so tightly you could bounce a quater off it, Bernie has probably had AT LEAST two heart attacks in the last six months....is there anyone else running? Too many of those idiots running around.

But hey, Trump is so crazy and stuff!!!

Oh, and I loved the part were they seemed offended POTUS blew off the functionary talking points...Shocking. I guess they were used to lazy ass jug ears who could not be bothered to put any effort in of his own most of time.

Oh - and WTF with the Conan The Dog event?? There was a great photoshop of Biden sniffing Conan, which reminded me. Thought PDT was going to have Conan in for a ceremony at the WH.

137 This topic (25th Amendment) has always griped me more than most of the other idiocy, because it's clear that any idiot pushing this has never called up the Constitution and done a 5 minute glance through the actual 25th Amendment. (this is what lets me know that McCabe is a great, illiterate fool, because he apparently took it seriously)

I've gone into a long explanation long ago, but short and sweet: It is literally, in every way, EASIER to Impeach than it is to use the 25th Amendment procedures! You have to have 2/3 of BOTH Houses to pass it, plus the Ringleader has to be the Vice President. It's only useful for those rare instances where the President is completely incapacitated, but his party doesn't want to impeach him.

Point is, other than what Ace posts in here, or what I see in feeds of certain actual journalists I follow, I see absolutely nothing that CNN, NYT, ABC, NBC, CNBC, etc. say about anything. On principal, I chose to boycott all of these institution years ago, before Trump. And I know I'm not alone.

There. Is. No. Daylight. Between DNC Official Playbook and the Playbooks of the media "news" organizations. The "Drudge Report" of the Progressive left IS the DNC playbook of the day. Why visit any of these sites when you can get the pure version of the crack directly from the DNC?

149 It doesn't get much funnier than someone who had any connection at all to the affirmative action intern to talk about Trump having trouble finding words. Off-script [and the scripts were horribly inane, hackeneyed, and/or offensive, even by Beltway standards, with the help of Obama's dumb kid staffers], Obama was a mumbling nothingburger. In person, it was difficult to not laugh out loud, as his self-importance and baritone only emphasized what a lightweight he was demonstrating he was, instead of masking it.

Farmed raised Hobos are sold only in counters at Costco, their sell date is short - wild Alaskan Hobos are best - sprinkled with Himalyan salt and just a dust of freshly squeezed lime juice, cooked on a hot grill, then reduced to allow the Hobo wine juices be retained and served with a Napa Valley red from Staggs Leap district - they make the perfect entertaining menu for discerning guests like Ace.

I mentioned the difficulty earlier, but yes! The 25th Amendment is for "when the president has a stroke" type of events or when he is under for surgery. Impeachment is for criminal actions, not an incapacity, and the 25th is to handle those situations. In an actual incapacity it would not be hard to get the necessary concurence because at that point it is no longer partisan.

222 Honestly wish there was a reliable source of information about what actual voters who are truly "independent" and could go either way in any given Presidential election think about the Democrats in the Age of Trump, generally, and about this Ukraine Impeachment! (TM) debacle.

I know this is a relatively small portion of the public, probably something like 6 to 12% of the voting populace, but I'm truly interested to know if a majority of this group thinks this is legit or not, whether they get angry at what the Dems and Media are doing and whether that translates to support of Trump 2020.

Well it was pretty much where he wanted to go too. It's just that he was incredibly lazy and was only interested in the perks of the job, not actually doing the job. I said before Reagan was an actor that wanted to be president. Obama is a man that just wanted to act like he was president.

This is also why I have severe doubts of Michelle ever trying to pull a Hillary and running for office to get the presidency. She's even lazier than Barak and doesn't even want to put forth the effort she would need to win office.

314 Ray Van Dune, nice. Exactly what I thought when I saw that bizarre quote.


It seems like these anti-Trump "witnesses" [everything connected to this degrading farce deserves scare quotes] are pretty dumb, at least at this part of the game - and their lawyers, too. Both Bearclaw and Yovanovitch contradicted themselves multiple times [between deposition and live testimony], and Bearclaw has himself all tied up in an impossible web of perjury WRT ID of the non-WB WB.


It's good that the civic vandals are not that smart or clever, don't get me wrong. But wow, pathetic.


And WTFFF with Ukraine offering Bearclaw their defense minister job? Huh? I read it as absolute desperation on Zelensky's part [and I don't blame him, it's an awful situation and he's probably trying to do the right thing] - like Trump, but far worse, he faces an almost complete lack of capable people he can trust, who aren't tainted by corruption or vulnerable to pressure, to hire.

Different altogether. The surprise anal otters moved in herds. Early settlers reported coming across entire native American settlements that had been overrun by herds of anal otters. There were people lying everywhere, exhausted from the efforts of dozens of anal otters that had more or less run iron horse on them.

In North Alabama, we had the Hobo Natural Bridge. It marks the place where the Old Thunderbird Trail once began. Spanned a small gorge. Wasn't very wide, though, so you had to really be careful in the wintertime if it iced over.

Governments don't live together--people live together. With governments, you don't always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well, I've come here to give you either one or get either one from you. I came here like this so you'll know my word of death is true, and my word of life is then true. The hobo lives here, the wolf, the antelope, the Comanche. And so will we. Now we'll only hunt what hobos we need to live on, same as the Comanche does. And every spring, when the grass turns green, and the Comanche moves north, you can rest here in peace, butcher some of our hobo, and jerk hobo for the journey. The sign of the Comanche, that will be on our lodge. That's my word of life.

trump has a teleprompter, or so I thought I've seen.

Of course, he goes off target every other sentence to talk about whatever he wants. which may make being his teleprompter guy the hardest working man in showbiz.

Yeah, though, he's pretty good off the cuff, "you'd be in jail" and even Mark Steyn was impressed with "keep your physician" riff.

394 Mikey and ShainS, exactly. Trump does more, and more spontaneous, interaction with the "press" than any prez in our lifetimes. By a huge margin.


Yes he often phrases things like a rough-edged NYC real estate mogul, instead of in the dull hackneyed tones of a Beltway lawyer or politico - which is actually incredibly entertaining much of the time. And very American.


Hilarious to see these Dem shill idiots, whose leaders and heroes are dim, boring, histrionically mendacious mediocrities who get in trouble with the *slightest* bit of improvisation, pretending to believe that Trump's public speaking actually concerns them.

AP Publishes Story Noting That 100,000 Migrant Children are In Detention, Pinning This on Trump;
Then They "Retract" The Story When They Learn This Figure is from 2015, and Therefore Not "News" Because It's Not Helpful to Democrats

Brave firefighters who need to be spat on in public.

The story's still true -- they're just retracting it because it fails to advance the political interests they're in the business of advancing.

Wouldn't want any context about Obama's detention policies cluttering up the narrative, huh, AP?



Deleting the story completely. Not just correcting it, rewriting it to reveal that Obama detained 100,000 precious migrant children in Concentration Camps in 2015.

No -- deleting it entirely from the record. Obliterating it. Erasing it.

Putting it in a pile and burning it.

Brave firefighters.






Brave firefighters, setting fire to all the inconvenient books and articles.

Brave firefighters, purging the past with Cleansing Flames to win the future.

A week ago James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released a hot mic rant by ABC's Amy Robach lamenting her network's deep-sixing of the Jeffery Epstein saga three years prior. In watching this video clip and tracking the media response to it I was reminded of a scene in Ray Bradbury's classic 1951 sci-fi novel Fahrenheit 451.

For the record, 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature at which paper burns. In Bradbury's novel, the state employs "firemen" to burn books lest the information they contain challenge the official state narrative. "Is it true that long ago firemen put fires out instead of going to start them?" a young woman asks fireman Guy Montag. Montag tells her that's a crazy idea. "Strange," she answers. "I heard once that a long time ago houses used to burn by accident and they needed firemen to stop the flames." Montag laughs.

Not too long ago, ambitious journalists, local and national, prided themselves on gathering information, and their editors prided themselves on publishing it. About 50 or so years ago, however, progressives started to seize control of universities, J-schools included, and newsrooms shifted leftwards with each new graduating class. By 2016, even major newsrooms had become firehouses. Their goal was not to report information but to manage it. In February 2017, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski unwittingly admitted as much. Said Brzezinski of President Trump, "He could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that is our job." Yes, sadly, that is their job.

The media is Orwell's nightmare. They exist not to inform the public, but to keep it ignorant.

Oh, and:




And Bearclaw puffed up his resume.



And he kind of admitted he's the one feeding the fake hearsay whistleblower his lines:



And he was believed to be an untrustworthy, partisan leaker:

We wouldn't realize half of how badly they do their job except for their OWN failures. And the other half from true patriots and journalists interested in the facts.

Trump should fuck with him (and video tape it for later release) -

Call his ass to the carpet with is chain of command.

Ask him,
"What is your chain of command?"

"What do you not comprehend about "pardon"?"

Then bust his ass for a virtual catalog of the UCMJ...
Do an ad hoc court marshall if he demands one...


As his chain if they take any exception...

183 In RE: Estimated Bills.


Depending on your state's laws and the tariffs for your utility, estimated bills are permitted, but only for a limited time as an actual bill needs to be generated. Reasons for estimated bills vary, but common ones are inability to access the meter due to location (behind a locked gate), hazards (dog in the yard), and so on.


Check with your utility and your state utility board for further information.

I believe all Trump did was restore his rating. I probably didn't restore his prior position and duty station as that was quite a while ago.

So this Admiral has taken it on himself to make sure he does not resume that position. I doubt the Chief even could return to his prior position without orders as he was effectively transferred during his trial and imprisonment.

272 Extraordinary earlier today when Schiff and Vindman's conspire as a team to prevent Vindman from identifying the agency of person he contacted outside his chain off command, who EVERYONE knows was the "whistleblower" Eric Ciaramella, in CIA.

As I understand it, Vindman's communication of Ukraine call to Ciarmella is not allowed, not in Vindman's chain of command, and not in compliance with the whistleblower statute.

By allowing Vindman not to answer the question the sworn testimonial record, or allowing him to take the 5th, Schiff succeeds in protecting Vindman from a slam-dunk criminal admission.

But let's not kid ourselves. That part of his testimony proves beyond all reasonable doubt, that Vindman broke the law here. If he felt so strongly about what he heard on the call, HE should have availed himself of the Whistleblower rules and reported it like a man.

Instead, this pussy gets protected the bigger pussy, Schiff. But WTH is Barr, the FBI and President Trump and his staff? Vindman CLEARLY broke the law here, and deserves to get prosecuted.

On Prosecution within the Federal Government, we have bigger problems to talk about. With the McCabe case news today, the delays in the Horowitz report, the Flynn case, the leadership overseeing the Flynn case, the decisions not to prosecute (democrats or their darlings) and to prosecute (anyone in Trump's orbit), it's clear as day that the US Justice Dept. has it's own very serious "Deep State" resistance problem.

Trump holds the most powerful position in the world. He has Constitutional powers. I criticize Trump for whoever he has assembled as his legal and political team. If I'm Trump, I immediately fire off a public order to Barr something like this:

"Barr, given your recent speech, the facts surrounding leaks coming from by persons in my State Department, including to the current Whistleblower involved in the impeachment trial, the DOJ corruption alleged by Gen. Flynn, the findings of OIG Horowitz, and many other troubling reports about the existence of an organized "resistance" within federal bureaucracies, I hereby order to you select 7 federal judges by random drawing and to assign them to review the current cases involving prosecutorial decisions related to McCabe, Comey, Hillary Clinton, Vindman and any other federal employee criminally referred in any OIG report issued or to be issued by Horowitz, and to order this panel to decide if they agree with the current assigned prosecutors for each case, and I hereby order you to empower to that panel with the power and authority by majority vote to overrule any decisions related to those cases that involve prosecutorial discretion."

DOJ Releases More Information About Strzok in Motion to Dismiss His Lawsuit Against Them

Strzok filed suit, laughably, challenging the DOJ's determination that he should be fired.

The Department of Justice released documents Monday outlining a slew of "security violations" and flagrantly "unprofessional conduct" by anti-Trump ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok -- including his alleged practice of keeping sensitive FBI documents on his unsecured personal electronic devices, even as his wife gained access to his cellphone and discovered evidence that he was having an affair with former FBI attorney Lisa Page.

The DOJ was seeking to dismiss Strzok's lawsuit claiming he was unfairly fired and deserves to be reinstated as chief of the counterespionage division at the FBI. In its filing, the DOJ included an August 2018 letter to Strzok from the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which said in part that Strzok had engaged in a "dereliction of supervisory responsibility" by failing to investigate the potentially classified Hillary Clinton emails that had turned up on an unsecured laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner as the 2016 election approached.

The situation became so dire, OPR said, that a case agent in New York told federal prosecutors there that he was "scared" and "paranoid" that "somebody was not acting appropriately" and that "somebody was trying to bury this."

...

Additionally, DOJ and OPR noted that although Strzok claimed to have "double deleted" sensitive FBI materials from his personal devices, his wife nonetheless apparently found evidence of his affair on his cellphone -- including photographs and a hotel reservation "ostensibly" used for a "romantic encounter." Strzok didn't consent to turning over the devices for review, according to OPR, even as he acknowledged using Apple's iMessage service for some FBI work.

"[My wife] has my phone. Read an angry note I wrote but didn't send you. That is her calling from my phone. She says she wants to talk to [you]. Said we were close friends nothing more," one of Strzok's text to Page read, according to the filing.

...

Strzok's wife allegedly threatened to send Page's husband some of the photographs from Strzok's phone.

One quick vocabularly point: I've never trusted myself to use the word "ostensibly" because I wasn't sure if it meant apparently or supposedly/purportedly.

And that's a big difference; it's it's "apparently," that means it's your own take on the evidence; if it's "supposedly," that's someone else trying to push their take on you.

Turns out, it means both -- either apparently or supposedly, but not necessarily actually.

Here's the etymology, which suggests it started out as mostly meaning "purportedly:"

1730, "capable of being shown, that can be shown or seen, presentable," from French ostensible, from Latin ostens-, past-participle stem of ostendere "to show, expose to view; to stretch out, spread before; exhibit, display," from assimilated form of ob "in front of" (see ob-) + tendere "to stretch," from PIE root *ten- "to stretch." Meaning "apparent, professed, put forth or held out as real" is from 1771.

So if that one's been bothering you, you're welcome.

Below, some tweets containing screenshots of the filing.

There was a discussion here a while back where the consensus that emerged was that she was "work hot", i.e. you'd think she was hot if she worked in your office, which is a different thing from being hot enough to be a lingerie model or whatever.

I think you take enjoyment in life where you can. The report is quite amusing and deeply embarrassing.

I also note that none of the 'decline to prosecute' decisions preclude ever prosecuting, it just hasn't happened to date. Barr seems a different sort, and the report repeated emphasized how badly he damaged the FBI's reputation and ability to function.

And that's before we even get into the doctored 302s.

Sure they would. They'd make a copy to use for their own blackmail purposes, and as assassination insurance.
Look at it this way: Hillary KNOWS you've had your hands on the data. Is she going to trust your word that you didn't make a copy or even stash the original?

No, she isn't. You'd better have something to hold over her or your life isn't worth a plugged nickel at that point.

These people are not smart, they are corrupt, they are vicious and they thought they were untouchable, so when it became apparent their little operation was beginning to be exposed, they sought to find ways to mitigate their exposure.

So we're expected to believe that this super-smort chief of counterintel's bright idea is to scatter unclassified tweets that could potentially be used to blackmail him and evidence of an affair his wife believes so fervently she gains access to systems with secure data she's not allowed to see...

To do what?

Gambling had appeared in Hot Springs after the Civil War and was taken over by the Capone group during Prohibition. There were periodic raids and crackdowns, but illegal casinos continued to operate in Hot Springs until the late 1960's, well after Bill left to go smoke dope at Georgetown and Oxford.

278 Clay Travis @ClayTravis
Last week 23 million people watched Vikings-Cowboys on NBC's Sunday Night Football. So far the most watched day of the Trump impeachment hearings - if you combine all the broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC together - was 13 million people.

Clay Travis @ClayTravis
It's important to note that while the media wants to sell you on the country's incredible polarization and social media would convince you a second Civil War is near, most people in this country would much rather watch a regular season football game.


Clay Travis @ClayTravis
Last night Monday Night Football, airing on cable, outrated impeachment coverage even if you add up viewers on all channels. MNF also outrated all news coverage of impeachment combined that was airing at the same time as the game on all cable channels combined.

Clay Travis @ClayTravis
I suspect football is more popular because unlike with impeachment we don't already know how the football games will end. (House impeaches, senate won't vote to remove). But don't allow the media to convince you that the nation is in any way obsessed with this charade. Not true.

@ClayTravis
More fun with numbers: every episode of the final season of Game of Thrones nearly quadrupled the viewership of the most watched day of the impeachment hearings so far.

I am convinced that when these hearings started, Schiff's plan was to do a quick 2 week public run through, toss it to Nadler, have his committee kick out Articles of Impeachment in 48 hours (they're already written, obviously) and then they would give it a fast vote on the last legislative day of the year (Dec 11 or 12) and then go home for the Christmas none of them believe in. Looked great on paper.

BUT their big problem is those 20 or 30 Dem Reps in Trump districts - Given Schiff's wild claims, I have no doubt that he massively overpromised and oversold what he had. "Oh yeah, I got 20 smoking guns, I got the quid pro quo, it's gonna be easy, it's gonna be great!" So they've been expecting that, and instead - they get this Pathetic Clown Show, which is turning out to be even worse than the Mueller fiasco. If those 20 or 30 members start to crack, and start thinking that they really dont' wanna be unemployed so fast, then this entire thing falls apart.

RUSSIAN Propaganda Site Daily Caller Releases "Doctored Video" of Impeachment Hero Eric Swallwell, and Must Be Deplatformed Immediately
Plus: More Bearclaw!

This guy's underwear is working harder than Ana Navarro's spanx.

Additional thoughts on the fake impeachment:








That "Lieutenant Colonel Bearclaw" joke of CarpeDonktum has perhaps been confirmed by new reporting:



I'd like to direct your attention to this original reporting from Deb Heine from a couple of weeks back.

A Lieutenant Colonel Hickman -- who has served alongside Vindman -- reported that Vindman would routinely "bash Americans" while speaking to his Russian counterparts, usually in Russian, though there were interpreters to let Hickman know what Vindman was saying.

The New York Times claims this is "unsusbantiated."

Strange. Deb Heine was able to substantiate it with just a couple of phone calls. Perhaps the Times was not motivated or incentivized to substantiate it...?

But Hickman’s former boss, Thomas Lasch, a highly respected simulation strategist at the Joint Multinational Simulation Center in Grafenwoehr, Germany, corroborated his story on Twitter and to American Greatness.

"Jim, I remember exercise ATLAS VISION and this incident. I was your Boss at the time and was satisfied when you told me that you 'took care of it' (meaning then MAJ Vindman’s disparaging comments about the U.S. to the Russians ) and I just put things together this past week," Lasch tweeted.

Lasch vouched for Hickman in a second tweet: "Everyone on this thread should know that Jim Hickman's patriotism and honesty is unparalleled. He is one of my personal heroes." He added: "This is not about Trump! This is about an officer [Vindman] that is disloyal to the United States of America."

American Greatness was able to reach Lasch through his LinkedIn account. He verified that the recently established Twitter account in his name vouching for Hickman was indeed his.

A second individual who witnessed Vindman's troubling behavior in Grafenwoher, has supplied American Greatness with a statement.

The individual--a General Services Employee with the Department of the Army--wished to stay anonymous due to fear of retribution at his place of work and for his family.


"Yes I do remember this, LTC Vindman was uncomfortably supportive of Obama. He seemed almost self-hating of white Americans, and made comments to the Russians during Atlas Vision 13 about how, in my own words, American's are too big for our own britches and not exceptional. He also spoke in Russian and we really didn't know what he was saying. I remember giving him shit about it, then telling LTC Hickman about it, and he said something to him [LTC Vindman]. He seemed like a poor performer, not too motivated, and a bit of a sluggish officer."

Why is it that Nice Deb, who used to Guest Blog here when I took time off, can manage to work the telephone and New York Times reporters can't?


I have a cryptic tip from a source: the tip suggests that a look through four years of Vindman's CV -- four years that are not well accounted for -- would be rewarding.

I don't know what this means.

Benghazi hero Mark "Oz" Geist, and Robert McNeil, who iced Bin Ladin, don't think much of Lt. Col. Bearclaw:

The only "undetectable" poison I know of *was* succinylcholine, but some years back the cops devised some kind of gas chromatography that can turn it up if it looks suspicious, and it doesn't cause seizures.

Nicotine poisoning will induce seizures, paralysis and death, but again, if it looks suspicious, they'll look for high concentrations.

Of course, when the vic has dirt on Clintons, it never looks suspicious to cops.

Infantry officer, served active duty from 1999 to the present, and only 1 combat deployment in 2004-2005? The guy's a scummy shit-weasel, everyone knows it and actively avoids him, so he moved from the hard alpha lifestyle of an infantry officer to foreign service, where he has more power and can let his liberal/establishment freak flag fly.

I've worked with similar officers at US embassies....I don't know if it's the assignment or their natural personality, but you can't trust a word they say, and they'll throw you under the bus for the slightest personal gain.

So Imma say don't venture the places you don't know.

He went to Ranger school and while I have read that he got low peer ratings he wasn't peered out. Meaning that maybe people did not like him, but not so much that they wanted him gone.

Warrant Officers are (in theory, at least) technical experts in their MOS and are selected from the enlisted ranks based on a track record of suprerior technical performance. In Army the exception is Warrant Officers who are pilots and usually enter the Army directly through Warrant Officer Candidate School. They are afforded the courtesies of officer status and (again, in theory) are not in command or leadership positions.

Technically, only WO1s are mister. The rest are usually called "chief". I've seen plenty of enlisted say "sir" to warrant officers, though, and it's appropriate.

As for weight and fitness standards, you can get away with quite a bit. The physical fitness test isn't THAT hard, and you can be a fatty and still pass as long as you've done a decent amount of order. This guy's 44, so off the top of my head...2 mile run in 18:45, 31 pushups in 2 minutes, and maybe 35 situps in 2 minutes? With his position, too, he would be better setup to try and pencil-whip his scores. As for being overweight...it's a weird system where they measure your waist and neck, height and weight, calculate your body fat. I think 28% is the max? I don't know....if you're 6 foot like me and under 203 lbs, you automatically pass and don't get taped, so I don't know the details.

Here's my read:

It sounds to me like Vindman was leaking like a sieve to Dems, and Schiff latched onto the Zelensky call as his thing.

He made up a bunch of shit about it, and picked Ciamarella as the cutout to be the "whistleblower," which would protect Superchunk's identity, and leave him open to modify the transcript for the desired "evidence" (like the Flynn 302).

But then, unexpectedly, the transcript was classified above his pay-grade, and Trump released it from under them.

Whoops! Whoopsie!

Well, no, not really.

Ranger school isn't about "fighting as Rangers."

The Army wants Ranger qualified officers throughout the combat arms portion of the Army. Is it a plus up on your "resume?" Sure. Are there people who do it because they think it pretties up their chances for promotion?

I suppose. But largely, they do it because the Army expects it.

Vindman is an Infantry officer. He may be an FAO specialty now, but he still wears crossed rifles. It is kind of expected that Infantry officers will go to Ranger school.

It sounds to me like Vindman was leaking like a sieve to Dems, and Schiff latched onto the Zelensky call as his thing.

He made up a bunch of shit about it, and picked Ciamarella as the cutout to be the "whistleblower," which would protect Superchunk's identity, and leave him open to modify the transcript for the desired "evidence" (like the Flynn 302).

But then, unexpectedly, the transcript was classified above his pay-grade, and Trump released it from under them.

Whoops! Whoopsie!

Posted by: dingbat at November 19, 2019 05:58 PM

Warrant officers are "technical specialists". They should have unmatched knowledge in their area of expertise. In the Army, many are pilots, but there are also many in maintenance, HR, and logistics. NCOs and officers work in those areas, too, but they also have other leadership responsibilities, command, etc, and may bounce around different assignments. Warrants stay very focused in their assignments, and so become experts. This level of expertise (and the fact that many are super old) leads some to not give a shit about things like formations, group PT, etc.

Posted by: Grimaldi at November 19, 2019 06:03 PM (TvbyR)

299 Warrant officers are interesting beasts.

They are officers by way of a - get this - warrant - rather than by a commission.

The military likes to have well rounded officers - they don't really specialize (despite having military occupation specialties).

Warrant officers can specialize. Stay in the same field forever. Sometimes its about technical stuff - nukes, or pilots, or something like that.

Is a kind of a fat body? Sure, and it looks like his hand to cinched into his uniform, but extended time overseas does that. He ate those Ukrainian patries with courage, honor and distinction - which I doubt no one here did.

The other day our 1st Sgt. with three Ranger tabs and two CIBs came to me with tears in his eyes, and said "If people will tweet mean things about such a distinguished and high-ranking officer, what will they say about ME on social media??"
He burst into tears and I had to give him some reassuring hugs.

Ace, we're losing the military vote. Average 11b grunts like me see the shoddy treatment given to this man and they are outraged. That's why Trump is in trouble. No wonder so many of them are big fans of Bloomberg.

In Bloomberg's army, no one will be fat. Or use straws, or have guns or smoke or swear. I can see a lot of GIs voting for that.

Doc_Zero/John Hayward: The Takeaway from Impeachment Theater Is That The Unelected Permanent Government Has Lost Confidence In the Voters

Would it not be simpler to dissolve the people, and install another?

The big takeaway from Impeachment Theater is that American voters have influence over a much smaller portion of the federal government than they believed. Washington is a feudal bureaucratic empire with a small suggestion box.

Last week American voters were introduced to the idea that the elected President of the United States can be accused of "undermining" foreign policy determined by the permanent bureaucracy, which spends billions of our tax dollars but is not even slightly interested in our input.



We've been told top bureaucrats who supposedly serve at the pleasure of the president are actually entitled to their jobs and firing them is a crime, with the president presumed guilty unless he can prove he had an acceptable reason for terminating or reassigning them.

We've learned that Made Men of the bureaucratic empire and its political wing, the Democrat Party, cannot be investigated for corruption unless the most exquisite preliminary rituals are followed and the investigators can demonstrate the absolute purity of their intentions.

Outside of Impeachment Theater, we've been told it's heroic for the bureaucracy to organize "resistance" against the elected president and congressional representatives, if the Washington empire disapproves of the voters' choices.

We've discovered obscure lower-court judges can hijack entire segments of national policy on a whim. Some of these imperial proclamations have been expressly premised on the notion that American citizens have less to say about their own government than foreign nationals do.

We've learned a president the imperial bureaucracy likes can issue executive orders that cannot be reversed by presidents it disapproves of. The people are belatedly informed that some matters are settled forever on the "one man, one vote, one time" principle.

The essence of self-government, the true right that matters above all others, is the right to say "no." We've learned over the past three years that the American people no longer have that right in most cases, but their nominal employees in the federal government do.

If the imperial bureaucracy makes a demand of you, good luck with trying to work up a "resistance" movement. Good luck getting any favorable attention from the media that has fused with that bureaucracy and enjoys a revolving door of employment with it.

But if you, the Little People, cast votes the imperial bureaucracy doesn't like... well, watch out. They'll fight you every step of the way and spend untold millions of YOUR dollars against you. Then they'll get in front of cameras and expect you to applaud them as heroes.

It was always a swindle to convince the American people that democracy serves as a failsafe check against authoritarian power. We were fooled into thinking our government could never become dictatorial, no matter how much power it claims, because we can always vote the bums out.

Guess what, kids? "Voting the bums out" turns out to be nearly impossible in any significant sense, because they can use their vast resources of money, power, and media to create defensive phalanxes of rock-solid voters. They can give you billions of reasons not to vote them out.


And as we've seen since 2017, even if you DO manage to vote the bums out, or vote in an administration that disagrees with the imperial consensus, you learn that most of the power and money is controlled by people you never get to vote against.

You learn that the people you don't vote for are very capable of defending their privileges against the people who DO have to face the voters. And you learn that far more issues than you ever suspected are considered "settled" so you'll never get to vote on them again. /end

61 In the Era of the Golden Scalp Weasel came the Great Unmasking.

What the NROniks and the Bulwarkians and Reverend French (I do so love that VDH called him that), et al. seem to miss is that the point of the GOP was supposed to be to stop this.

Remember the CRA? You know, when Newt promised that there would be Congressional review of regulatory actions (never mind how insanely inverted that is) and see we COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY passed the CRA and what do you mean now use it?

Remember when we were assured, with all sneering and pomp, that the GOP had to take the House because that way the power of the purse could be used to stop Obama and what do you mean you expect us to use it, we can't have a government shut down! It's the worst thing ever!

One half of one third.

Don't have the Presidency

Don't have 60 in the Senate.

Don't have the Courts.

It's excuse after excuse after excuse but never ever not in the history of ever does the GOP ever turn the ratchet the other way.

Then comes Trump, who is a transactional President in the sense that he made a deal. If you vote for me, I will do X. People voted for him and he is doing his best to give X.

Of course that's going to infuriate people who are being confronted that all of their pretty words were lies.

This all will end in the usual fashion. I just hope when I go down in the first wave that it's really quick.

And the Democrat Press, that commonly delivers a false view, with false facts, while ignoring the important, relevant information.

All the time covering up the crooked schemes of their fellow Democrat tools.

Setting aside that the Dems will go for Pence immediately on grounds of breathing, I did not fucking vote for Pence for President. I voted for Trump.

It absolutely would be overturning the election and it is insulting to have people claim otherwise.

The central AZ Valley is already full of such communities. They are called "mobile home parks". Now, they mostly permit cars, but you don't need a car to get around within the park; you use a golf cart, or maybe a bicycle or scooter.

It's not that it's necessarily new insight; it's that it is stated so simply yet comprehensively to define our status. We're in real trouble. And, with Trump, the answer to all these issues we knew were there, we see just how insidious, dangerous, and godawful "our" political and bureaucratic class is.

The fun part is, nobody ever does.

Sometimes it's a protest in Berlin. Or the President of the Russian Federation rides a tank to the Duma. Or a cadre of young captains just decides enough is enough and does their thang in Ankara.

I like to point out Romania as an example. In December of 1989, nobody could have guessed anything would change in the foreseeable future. It wasn't like the Warsaw Pact - the regime had control.

Then Securitate serves an eviction notice on a Hungarian priest in a backwater like Timisoara for political reasons. And his congregation tries to block them, and some local students join in. And they open fire.

And eleven days later, Bucharest is in chaos and the Ceausescus are put against the wall of a rural schoolhouse and ventilated by a firing squad.

Nobody can say what it will be, but that which can't continue won't, and you can rest assured the day will come.

284 This guy gets it. It's about self-government. It's not always about "liberty", but the liberty of governing our communities.

This means that we shouldn't have judges/experts telling us what is "progress" because we can always disagree on what is progress. We can double back and think "You know? That wasn't progress at all."

The modern American government is built for the ideological because it has a Crusade as its model and not the discussion of peers trying to figure out How Shall We Live.

329 I was juggling a bunch of these scenarios, just to see how it comes out in a different circumstance.

And I thought to myself that if Trump were going after his political enemies, and had changed the qualifications under which official complaints can be made just to get his political foes, I'd think a lot less of Trump.

Another thing I thought is why would they call conservatives "conspiracy theorists"? It's suddenly a conspiracy to fear misuse of the power of government agencies that have the power to prosecute and imprison you and the right to secure things away from the public's knowledge?

I mean if you like conspiracy theories, why isn't that Trump is in control of the Democratic Party/acting as a distraction target of the Democratic Party or Schiff is actually working for Trump a more interesting "conspiracy theory"?

I mean really. Did he get the opportunities that other Presidents have had? Not even a honeymoon. The divorce was filed before the marriage vows were said and those were "F**k You" and "Orange Man Bad".

476 jakee308: "Sometimes you have to go with the flow. It's a shame but if the flow is towards a strong man government then we deserve what's happened."

I'm not knocking it. I'm actually for it at this point because it's a choice of better or worse. In stage one, the strongman scenario cleans up anti-citizen corruption. I'll worry about stage two later. It may or may not happen, but stage one is a welcomed, tolerable one.

But I'm just stating an evolution of events that are driven by a country wracked by political corruption and a ruined democratic construct. The actions of those who are running things and should not be will invite, and insist upon, a correction. And in a democracy, it readily boils down to a populist who will grasp the imagination of a strongman.

498 453, there is a little problem with that. Right now we have more or less an unaccountable aristocracy. The first thing that a strongman does is more or less eliminates said aristocracy to get the support of the people. That is what the oligarchs are truly afraid of with Trump and why you see so much projection. They know what they've done and government more or less has the records of it via terrorism surveillance tools.

The oligarchs were freaking out that Elizabeth Warren meant taking "THEIR" wealth instead of just the peasants. That is when you saw Bloomberg and apparently the former Mass Gov. jump into the race. They really do not want Warren v. Trump as the matchup.

Right now, the oligarchs control the Dem party via clientelism: the alphabets, the unions, govt workers, contractors, single women, minorities, immigrants, etc. but it is an unstable coalition. It is based on money and hate, not love of country or any other positive virtue. When the money runs out, then the hate is no longer balanced (see Venezuela) and society implodes.

Yeah, that's right. Should have asked has there ever been an independent who caucused with the GOP besides her?

You are correct - one would think she's a Dem the way she votes.

Manchin, for all his weaselly ways and backstabbing and lack of stones on the Kav SCOTUS vote, seems to be more reliable.

And that's saying a lot.

The only "undetectable" poison I know of *was* succinylcholine, but some years back the cops devised some kind gas chromatography that can turn it up if it looks suspicious.

Nicotine poisoning will induce seizures, paralysis and death, but again, if it looks suspicious, they'll look for high concentrations.

Of course, when the vic has dirt on Clintons, it never looks suspicious to cops.

553 I imagine old Vindy is where the text of the call got so garbled that Schiff thought it was a smoking gun - the nine instances of wanting to investigate Biden and the like.

It makes less sense for Schiff to do so as having it refuted was so easy. But if he credulously bought into Vindy's tale and ran with it, well that crap has a long history going back to Kavanaugh hearings and Anita Hill.

First, reelect Trump.
Second, elect enough Freedom loving, Constitution respecting, Trump supporting Republicans to make the GOPe irrelevant.
Third, Expel Schiff from the House
Fourth, Make it known to the Democrats that if they don't rid themselves of their current leadership, "Schiff rules" will prevail for all committees: The minority will sit there with their yaps closed, AND LIKE IT
Fifth, repeal the civil service laws: If these deep state bastards are going to behave like partisan hacks, they deserve to be turned out of their jobs when their party loses.
Sixth, end direct election of Senators. Senators represent their states, not the people thereof. That's what the House is for.
Seventh. Term Limits. For everyone. Especially Supreme Court Justices.
Eighth, Age Limits. Nobody has the right to die in office.
Ninth, Go from a two year to a three year election cycle. That, way, we'd have at least one year in which to get shit done before everybody starts thinking about how best to position their asses to keep their phony baloney jobs after the upcoming election.

Failing That:

Article V/Constitutional convention. Sure, it will end in civil war, but as Clemenza said, "sometimes you got to get rid of the bad blood" (something like that).

And failing that:

there will be blood.

Oh: Mr. Bearclaw -- I'm Sorry, Lieutenant Colonel Bearclaw -- Admits That Ukraine Asked Him to... Be Their Defense Minister

Apparently the Ukranians had absolutely no questions about Vindman's national loyalties. They offered him one of the highest-ranking positions in government -- three times.

White House official Lt. Col. [Big Boy Bearclaw] testified Tuesday as part of the House impeachment inquiry that he was asked to serve as Ukraine’s defense minister -- but repeatedly denied the offers -- when he traveled to Kiev for the inauguration of President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Minority counsel Steve Castor asked Vindman about the offer made by Ukraine's Defense Council Oleksandr Danylyuk earlier this year.


[Lt. Col. Bearclaw] testified Tuesday that Danylyuk offered him the position "three times."

"Every single time, I dismissed it," [Bearclaw] said. "Upon returning, I notified my chain of command and the appropriate counterintelligence folks about this offer."




This strikes me as almost certainly true, and it would explain why Shifty Schiff keeps threatening anyone who asked who Vindman talked to. Not about the whistleblower per se, but whenever anyone asks who Vindman started talking to (outside of permitted protocol), Schiff brings the gavel down.



I wouldn't say he "admitted" it, but I also wouldn't say he didn't not admit it.

Here's Schiff working hard to protect the whistleblower, whose identity he claims he does not know.

And yet, whenever Vindman is asked whether he spoke to someone who might resemble Eric Ciaramella, Schiff rushes in to end any questioning "that might reveal the identity of the whistleblower."

And Vindman himself says he will not answer, to protect the whistleblower.

But Vindman also swore, under oath, that he did not know who the whistleblower is.

How does he know what questions could lead to his identity if he doesn't know his identity?

How does he know he shouldn't name the man he tattled about the Zelensky call to -- a man whose identity he obviously does know -- unless he knows, despite his sworn testimony to the contrary, that that man is in fact the fake whistleblower?



If he's lying about this, why... um, why should we believe anything that comes out of his mouth?

A question I really want to hear the answer to is: Was Lt. Col. Bearclaw on the #Resistance secret comms listserv? Was Ciaramella?

Was Brennan?

Update from Tami:

@IvanPentchoukov 23 minutes ago

In a verbal slip, Alexander Vindman described the unnamed intelligence community official as "an individual from the Office of In-"

Could it be the Office of Inspector General @ CIA?

85 My impressions of Vindman is that like many of his ilk, he is a smug, self-satisfied shit bird and does not have loyalty to the CIC or America writ large but to the "inter- agency" and the bureaucratic/Deep State.



It is also clear he was a prime actor in this op, because instead of going to his boss with his concerns, he went straight to lawyers who instructed him to not talk to his boss.


Now him going to the lawyers was all part of the op, I believe everyone up and down the line was in on this operation.


This is scary stuff, there is no possibility of Trump
being able to correct these enormous problems all by himself, he needs congressional and Senate help, which will never be forthcoming.

92 Alexander Vindman Admits Making up Parts of Trump Call Summary

The summary Vindman wrote after the call read:

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 Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people to implement reforms that strengthen democracy, increase prosperity, and root out corruption.

But Vindman clarified during his testimony that the president did not bring up the topic rooting out corruption during the phone call, but he included it in his summary of the call anyway.


When asked by the Democrat counsel about whether the summary he wrote was false, Vindman hesitated.

"That's not entirely accurate, but I'm not sure I would describe it as false, it was consistent with U.S. policy," Vindman said.

Vindman said he included the rhetoric about corruption as a "messaging platform" to describe U.S. policy toward Ukraine, even though it was not discussed on the call.

There is probably a lot to this assertion. There's a cabal trying things but it doesn't need to go all that deep if the organization is generally corrupt. They need to try to direct the traffic, but you don't need a top-down conspiracy if everyone already generally agrees on what they think should be done. It'll be a bit chaotic, but it'll also move in the right direction.

Why block the questions about who he spoke with in IC community if no one, including Schifty, "know" who the whistleblower is? If that's Schifty's claim, then how does he not know that Kent, Williams, Vindman, any other witnesses are not the whistleblower?

In other words, you can ask all the witnesses if they leaked information - exposing them as THE possible whistleblower - but you can ask if a witness spoke with someone at the CIA / IC??

Same with Ciaramella and Schiffty ... Schiff's office coordinated and probably wrote the whole complaint, but they can only surmise whether Charlie delivered it directly, or gave it to someone else.

They are sneaky at covering up ... so they might toss in an extra cutout, and then claim ignorance ... button button, who's got the button ... idk, I gave it him, last I saw it.

227 So Imma be honest. I'm not really paying attention to much of this any more.

Am I to believe, according to Schiff, that someone not in the meeting "overheard" Trump bribing or offering quid pro quos or whatever to the Ukranian president because he wanted to get at Biden... and this person just happened to be walking by the room when the conversation was going on, and they had left the door open or something?
So then, this other guy who was in the meeting is now saying "yep, that person who totally happened to hear what was going on is entirely correct and truthful."?

Do I have the gist correct?

Considering his personality, I'm sure that he frequently portrayed himself as an important person in charge of men and not merely a translator.

From a Ukraine point of view, a US military officer supplies a very direct route to influence the US, at least potentially, because that person would know very well How We Do Things. They wouldn't have to rely entirely on a US liaison.

242 I thought it was already established that Vindman leaked it to the whistleblower Ciaramella. Are we just looking for one of these bastards to admit to it. There were only 3 other people besides POTUS on the call if IIRC, so one of them is the leaker, which of course is Vindman. And EDKH.

After the 2014 coup in Ukraine which the Obama administration helped run, Victoria Nuland and former Ambassador Pyatt were caught on a leaked phone call discussing who they wanted to stop the new administration with. Why not, they were running the country. Probably explains how Ukraine ended up with a former president of Georgia as the governor of Odessa.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit to find out that Vindman was a big fan of John McCain who was also involved in all of this Ukrainian corruption.

Well mass immigration has always benefited the Democrat party, mass Irish, Italian and German immigration in the late 19th and the early 20th century resulted in near total Democrat political control for 60 years.


So it should be no surprise that mass hispanic and asian immigration should not similarly result in Democrat dominance for the next 60 years.

318 225 Ironic racism is one of the known styles of racism. Here's a quick rundown:
- "True Racism" - vintage type. Rare these days, has lots of colorful language, no filter. Likes the term 'colored', was probably robbed by black people once. Would probably do nasty things to people of other races but only at a rally.

- Liberal Racism - retro type. Common among liberals who grew up in multi-cultural places and had 'black friends'. Think they know the limits on racial slurs, secretly know about the IQ gap. Mouth platitudes. Do ironic blackface.
- Colorblind Racism - modern type. Thinks all people are equal and that skin color is just a paint job. Believes in equality of opportunity but not result. May still note how well-spoken a black man is. Would never say the n-word but might still call the police for noise violations.

- Progressive Racism - postmodern type. Thinks that all people could be equal if full communism was enacted. Believes whites to be inferior and that every skin color other than white is a paint job on a beautiful colored soul.
- Ironic Racism - futurist type. Googled USS Liberty incident. Used racist slurs and offensive images such as swastikas online because it made uncool people hilariously mad. Now believes that the world is controlled by Jews trying to import a black underclass to beat white hispanics such as themselves into submission.
- Christian Racism - classic type. Would like their daughters to not be raped by illegal aliens. Would like their cities to be orderly. All of their solutions to problems would create disparate impact and are thus racist.

The divorce, for her, would be expensive? I mean he doesn't look like he's been supporting himself. I mean, they kids are older so that's probably not the main consideration. There's a catholic thing that I think she's serious about. But she could still divorce him and not remarry. Maybe she figures he'll come out of his derangement once trump is out of office. . .

or maybe the divorce would be so messy she doesn't want to go through it. She might have her own baggage. Who knows.
