McMaster Fires Another Iran Hawk, While Doing His Best to Protect Obama Holdovers

Derek Harvey is a Middle East expert who had been on the National Security Council. He had pushed for a "more belligerent" line on Iran -- in accordance with Trump's, but apparently not McMasters', wishes.

Obviously, then, he had to go.

Harvey was apparently a strong advocate of Trump's decision to bomb a Syrian airfield in April in retaliation for the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons on civilians days earlier. Harvey also supported a more bellicose Iran strategy than either Tillerson or Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

Mattis, in particular, had strong disagreements with Harvey. Sources told the Standard that Mattis raised his concerns with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who was the one to fire Harvey on Thursday morning.

Harvey, a long-time intelligence professional with wide knowledge of the Middle East, played a critical role in the administration's Iran, Syria, and Iraq policies. He has extensive experience as an intelligence officer and analyst for the military, embassies, and the Defense Intelligence Agency.

McMaster meanwhile continues fighting to keep Obama's Team in place.

Harvey was closely involved in president Trump's efforts to rid the National Security Council of Obama holdovers, who were suspected of leaking national security secrets to the press. After extensive research, Harvey compiled a list of suspected leakers and reportedly delivered it straight to the president, who then took his list to McMaster.

Even though President Trump asked McMaster to fire the individuals on the list, the NSC chief refused the president's directives to get rid of the Obama holdovers. This comes as Congress continues to sound the alarm about the national security implications of a White House that can't control the release of classified information.

And as the classified leaks continue to spill into the public domain at a record-high rate, the National Security Council remains staffed with a shockingly high percentage of holdovers from the Obama era. Reached for comment, a White House official estimated that well over fifty percent of the National Security Council staff are Obama holdovers.

But instead of firing the Obama holdovers, McMaster has purged several conservative Trump supporters from the ranks of the NSC.

Obama's holdovers are invested in keeping the "Iran Deal" alive, one imagines. Right?

You know, establishment types ooohed and aahed over the Mattis and McMaster nominations while people I consider more credible -- that is, Deplorables with some subject-matter expertise -- told me both were weak and more aligned with Obama.

They turn out to have been right.

So I guess the question for the "principles" braggarts is this: You supposedly were against the Iran deal. Yet the establishment-blessed men you say are the Adults in the Room seem to be determined to keep it.

So, have your principles been corrupted by your tribal loyalties to the establishment/RINO wing?

Do you really oppose the Iran deal, or do you oppose it like Lisa Murkowski opposes Obamacare?

93 It's in the papers - yeah, I know its the Free Bacon but they are not immune to bad journalism - they seem to have some recent faux outragy kind of things lately so, Ida know.

And using my finely honed Kremlinological skills, I spot a paragraph that makes me wonder:

He is also known for recognizing the growing threat of the Iraqi insurgency following the U.S. invasion in 2003, and as a key ally of retired Gen. David Petraeus in executing the surge in Iraq. Petraeus has called Harvey his "favorite intelligence officer."

The blood is not good between Petraeus and McMaster. Petraeus was at one point a fan of McMaster, convening a special promotion panel that he returned from CENTCOM to come back and personally chair when McMaster was passed over for BG. One might think that McMaster and Petraeus are tight (google McMaster and Petraeus and you will find plenty of conspiracy theory that McMaster is just Petraeus in drag), part of the "COIN Mafia" - but I think there was significant fallout from Petraeus's tenure at CIA and his leaving the post in disgrace.

I am not a fan of Petraeus, so if a Petraeus favorite is getting canned, I am not necessarily dismayed.

Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council, and Derek Harvey, the NSC's top Middle East adviser, have been advocating the use of U.S. patrol bases in southern Syria, which includes the garrison at Tanf, to go on the attack against Iranian militias in Syria backing the Assad regime, according to a report by Foreign Policy.

Scaramucci to Reporter: Tell Me Who's Leaking, Or I'll Just Fire Everyone

I'm not sure if this is crazy or if this is necessary, or if it's a bit of both.

“Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information. He responded by threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff. “What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” he said. I laughed, not sure if he really believed that such a threat would convince a journalist to reveal a source. He continued to press me and complain about the staff he’s inherited in his new job. “I ask these guys not to leak anything and they can’t help themselves,” he said. “You’re an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country. So I’m asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it.”

In Scaramucci’s view, the fact that word of the dinner had reached a reporter was evidence that his rivals in the West Wing, particularly Reince Priebus, the White House chief of staff, were plotting against him. ...

[H]e has become obsessed with leaks and threatened to fire staffers if he discovers that they have given unauthorized information to reporters. Michael Short, a White House press aide considered close to Priebus, resigned on Tuesday after Scaramucci publicly spoke about firing him. Meanwhile, several damaging stories about Scaramucci have appeared in the press, and he blamed Priebus for most of them. Now, he wanted to know whom I had been talking to about his dinner with the President. Scaramucci, who initiated the call, did not ask for the conversation to be off the record or on background.

“Is it an assistant to the President?” he asked. I again told him I couldn’t say.

“O.K., I’m going to fire every one of them, and then you haven’t protected anybody, so the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.”

I asked him why it was so important for the dinner to be kept a secret. Surely, I said, it would become public at some point. “I’ve asked people not to leak things for a period of time and give me a honeymoon period,” he said. “They won’t do it.” He was getting more and more worked up, and he eventually convinced himself that Priebus was my source.

Okay, then he turns to Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon.


“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said.

...

Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.”

Okay, definitely kind of crazy. Still, maybe the leakers need to know a crazy guys is just itching to fire them.

And what if it's all true ? All of it.

Then Scaramucci is a really damn useful tool with a short use-by date. There's value in that. And probably quite a bit of value in the current situation.

Maybe Scaramucci came to take names and kick ass for about three months. That could be EXTREMELY useful.

Imagine that shit. Somebody so fucking eager - absolutely chomping at the bit because it gets them off - about DOING THEIR FUCKING JOB that they don't get two shits about KEEPING THEIR FUCKING JOB.

Gotta' admit - I'm kinda' that guy. I like nothing better than telling those in charge what they don't like to hear when I know I'm right. Don't like it ? Fine - I'll walk. I'll have another gig in four weeks. Tops.

It really does not matter what the leak was about... it was the Act itself.

Start firing people... oh.... and I'd also cut off normal Press Access to ANY reporter who publishes Leaked Information...

THEY need the access.... they will come to heal pretty quickly if you do that.

147 All these tut-tut tutters and harumphers still don't get it. We don't love Trump, some of us don't even like him. But he's the only weapon at hand to murder the GOP. I want them dead, I don't care how he does it. Murder is usually quite messy, and the GOP won't go quietly.

Reminds me of the scene in THE WIRE when the newly elected mayor of Baltimore told the DPW guy he saw an abandoned car on the street on the way over to the department and wanted taken care before he sees it again on his return trip.

The DPW guy is like okay but what street, Lord Baylish?!? Little Finger just walked away.

Mayor Little Finger, get this, never told the DPW where the abandon car was (maybe he never even saw one!) so that his lazy-ass DPW would hit the bricks And Tow ALL The Abandon Cars Off The Street to make sure they get the right one, which is their job anyway.

155 And what if it's all true ? All of it.

Then Scaramucci is a really damn useful tool with a short use-by date. There's value in that. And probably quite a bit of value in the current situation.

Maybe Scaramucci came to take names and kick ass for about three months. That could be EXTREMELY useful.

Imagine that shit. Somebody so fucking eager - absolutely chomping at the bit because it gets them off - about DOING THEIR FUCKING JOB that they don't get two shits about KEEPING THEIR FUCKING JOB.

Gotta' admit - I'm kinda' that guy. I like nothing better than telling those in charge what they don't like to hear when I know I'm right. Don't like it ? Fine - I'll walk. I'll have another gig in four weeks. Tops.

I want nothing less than a full scale Piranha Brothers cleansing ...

... They would select a victim and then threaten to beat him up if he paid the so-called protection money. Four months later they started another operation which the called 'The Other Operation'. In this racket they selected another victim and threatened not to beat him up if he didn't pay them. One month later they hit upon 'The Other Other Operation'. In this the victim was threatened that if he didn't pay them, they would beat him up. This for the Piranha brothers was the turning point.

164 On second thought, his threat was not meant to reveal the leaker because he didn't give the reporter any incentive to divulge the name. If he did reveal his source, the source is fired. If he doesn't, they still all may be fired (but unlikely) and the reporter has his credibility that he won't rat out a source,

"Why won't he just stop tweeting"

Its the source of his power. He won't stop....why don't you see that?

It has begun.

It's going to be a marathon of dick kicking and slaps to ears and cheeks until they submit to his authority.

Have you ever noticed PDT looking tired? No. The fight makes him stronger.

There is a whole generation of reporters and politicians on one side of the aisle who have never been in a fight for their survival. Just another Thursday for PDT.

So Trump is looking too wild and crazy with these tame and timid guys around him like Priebus and quiet Sessions. So he is getting a really wild and crazy guy to make him look more normal?

And while it was claimed to be a vulgar rant, I'm guessing we heard the worst of it, without a lot of context. And perhaps he thought it would not be reported verbatim. The writer said "he didn't say off the record", which seems to indicate she didn't ask something like "can I quote you on that" just to be sure.

321 My take:

-Trump thought he needed some Washington insiders on staff to move his agenda through Congress. Hires Priebus/Bannon.

-They were no help with Congress and especially the GOPe.

-Trump says to himself "Why keep these a-holes if they can't help me."

-Trump hires the Mooch to get rid of them and make sure their embarrassed on the way out.

-Mooch goes to work planting stories (some false) as the enforcer.

323 Not sure what to make of this Scaramucci thing. Lizza is MFM so who knows how much of this is true. Still, Hell of thing to make it all up. I get it, he's a Wall Street BSD kinda guy. I don't tremble when I hear bad words. And I kinda think "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy." is funny as heck, and "What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President's agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people" is an admirable sentiment. But, yeah, he's the comms guy, thinking that calling up a liberal and calling top guys in the WH cocksuckers in a rant is perhaps - perhaps - a little over the top. This isn't Goodfellas.

Though not from this article, Scaramucci described himself as more of a "front stabbing guy" earlier. So maybe I am more on his side of his fence.

359 'Listening to John Denver's Thank God I'm A Country Boy. It always puts me in a good mood.'

For all the criticism he gets, Denver was actually a skilled pop craftsman. That 'back to the country' mid-late 70's phase was some of his best-'Back Home Again', for example.

And his Christmas album is very much underrated--'Aspenglow' is always required listening during the holidays.

362 I read this New Yorker article just before stopping in here; as is my custom as a lurker.

Step back for a minute and consider time you have ever had an on-record conversation or been interviewed. There has to be at least some element of trust right up front, or I simply do not give the interview. The entire article was a violation of the core of any meaningful trust. To be sure, as you follow the article it unfolds as a well-crafted piece by an individual who appears to get a real kick out of letting as many people as he can know who or what he knows. The problem with individuals like this reporter is that you have no idea whether they write primarily fiction, non-fiction, or some weird hybrid of the two.

My takeaway? Under no circumstances would I ever engage in any form of communication with this clown of a reporter.

Burn it all down. I like Mooch's spirit. If you have power, then fucking use it. Fire everyone in Comm department, then pick another federal agency, starting with DOJ, and threaten to fire every single person hired since Obama took office on Executive Authority under war powers. Trump is dealing with dangerous North Korea issues and can't have people leaking the President's private conversations on same. Next week, threaten to fire every single Obama appointee to another agency, say HUD or EPA. Fire them all under Executive War Power authority and then settle-back and defend the law suits over time.

More on Fusion GPS: Veteran Washington Reporter Says Media Won't Report on Fusion GPS' Activities as a Major "Source" of "News," Because If You Dug Down Into It and Saw Fusion GPS' Emails With the Media, "It will look like an apocalypse"

A startling Q&A from Grassley and Browder, who testified today about the Magnitsky Act, Putin's efforts to overturn it, and Fusion GPS' role in helping Putin overturn it:


Lindsey Graham notes that Fusion GPS was both behind the anti-Trump Pee Pee Party Dossier as well as being on the same team as whoever set up the Don Jr. meeting.

Mollie Hemingway digests Browyard's testimony.

The full testimony is here, and I strongly advise you to read it. It's gripping as hell.

It's also alarming -- not just about the incredible brutality, venality, and corruption of the Russian government, but the even more frightening Shadow Media in the US which takes money from corrupt governments to get stories friendly to them planted in US media accounts, or to kill stories they don't like.

This tweet also has some of the highlights.

Lee Smith also checks in and digests the accusations flying about Fusion GPS. This is amazing stuff.

I'm not going to get into the details -- you'll have to click for those; this all seems very scary to me, scary enough I don't even want to mention this stuff -- but here's Lee Smith's conclusion:

It’s one of the peculiar paradoxes of the media today that the firm that sparked the anti-Trump resistance, and fueled the patriotism of those newly awakened to the dangers of Russian interference in American political institutions is working with companies intimately linked with Moscow. Fusion GPS is working to undo the U.S. sanctions on Russia implemented by the Magnitzky Act, and has been networked into Gazprom’s investment in Venezuela’s energy sector alongside Derwick Associates. And yet the U.S. media is focused on the Great Kremlin Conspiracy, the fruit of what appears to be only one in a series of smear campaigns waged by Fusion GPS. Sure, the reasons are partly ideological—Trump is not the press’ preferred candidate. And financial—the daily campaign against Trump is driving traffic that print and broadcast haven’t seen in a long time.

The press has its hands tied. “If they report that the Russia dossier is probably nonsense,” said Halvorssen, “and Fusion GPS is running information operations across the media, then that calls into question all the other stories that Fusion GPS has fed journalists in the past. Why are so few journalists willing to look into Fusion GPS?”

In order to report honestly on the Trump scandals, a weakened press would have to report honestly on Fusion GPS—which would mean lifting the lid on the incompetence and malfeasance of their own institutions and colleagues, which would reveal a scandal as threatening to democracy as anything Trump has said or done. “Imagine if they subpoena Fusion GPS’s emails,” said a veteran Washington reporter, “there are going to be lots of journalists in there who’ve taken stories from them. Big names, senior figures in the field. It will look like an apocalypse.”

There was a Mamet film about ten years ago called Spartan. It was okay. But what was great about it was its deadpan depiction of the US as a country in which government thugs and quasi-government thugs killed and assaulted people with impunity. Not just impunity -- they didn't even worry about it much. They acted as if this was all routine, not exceptional at all.

I'm starting to get that kind of vibe from all this.

23 This is actually comforting to me.

I can understand corruption, I could not understand mass delusion in the media. They are stupid, but a lot of what they print is destructive to the country, delusional, stupid, and not easily explained by partisanship or stupidity, or other normal means.

But this I understand - they were paid. By foreigners. They are treasonous whores, as we always suspected.

29 This is the greatest threat that this country faces, not Trump's tweets or his rudeness, not even "Russian meddling in the election". It is the media's abrogation of its sacred duty, the duty to seek out and provide the facts that the American people need to base their decisions on.

31 Imo, so far, the strategic picture closely resembles the opening phase of WW2 in the Pacific.

The wikileaks emails put us inside the enemy's comms traffic.

The POTUS's actions in discrediting the msm and the growth of news streams outside the msm is on par with the Battle at Midway and gives us near parity on strategic maneuver capability.

What we're in now is the offensive phase much like Guadalcanal.

If the analogy is accurate and holds true (assuming the accuracy) we can expect a close analog to massive bonzi attacks by the enemy. These will test our resolve and endurance, but will also hasten the enemy's destruction if successfully resisted.

Ahead lies many brutal and quite possibly non-metaphorically bloody battles.

But, the tide is turning.

I sure hope so. The tide was on a razor's edge at Guadalcanal too and picking Halsey to replace Ghormley went a long way to turning the tide. Because Halsey was a fighter and Ghormley was demoralized and ineffective.
And Trump is a fighter, unlike the weak sister's that have preceded him on the Republican side.

I do quite enjoy how at the beginning on the movie he just throws the audience in there with people throwing around jargon and there's no new guy audience pov character to whom any of it is explained. Nope. Figure it out.

Question, can what Fusion GPS is doing really be considered news? It seems like it's nothing more than press releases and propaganda.

Annnnd yet more "sources say" in these stories (obviously other than the testimony of the guy who, you know testified). How the hell do we know that Fusion GPS itself or one of its competitors isn't the source of those leaks?

Interestingly, and unexpectedly, the new-ish (and pretty disappointing) film "Absolutely Fabulous: The Film" (which is exactly what the title says -- a film update to the '90s TV show) is all about Public Relations firms and disinformation. Yes, it's a ridiculous slapstick comedy film, but the lead character -- Edina -- runs her own PR firm and is trying to twist stories to her clients' benefit -- but then runs into her own PR disaster when she accidentally kill Kate Moss.

The film itself gets a C+ at best (and I'm speaking as an AbFab fan), but it surprisingly did have a theme relevant to modern times. I.e. The is no different between "public relations" and "disinformation."

However, there is nothing beyond that first page.

I would be willing to bet, though, that there are "hidden" pages -- i.e. subdirectories -- on their server, orphaned from the rest of the Internet. But would be are visitable., if you only knew the URL.

Question for the techheads:

Is there any any to fish around and methodically uncover orphaned subdirectories in any domain? Must be possible.

I know that I myself have hidden subdirectories on zombietime, to which there are NO links from my front page. So far, no one has discovered them, but I imagine they could if they really tried.

But it has not been disclosed how that man, Guan Jun, who is in his 30s, came to own such a large piece of one of China's biggest conglomerates. His registered address in Beijing is a modest apartment at the end of a dingy hallway littered with discarded furniture and bags of trash.

OK - straight up question here. Because I really wonder. Have I been the only one going around saying "What the Fuck" for quite some time ?

I mean - when I was in college - the FBI straight-up assassinated a dude's wife and son at Ruby Ridge. I watched 'em burn people to death on TV at WACO. Watched agents go in decked to the nines to send a kid back to Cuba. To Cuba.

After 9/11 - all the new rules and agencies were pointed internally. They weren't pointed overseas. I watched people worry about using certain words on the telephone - because "they" might be listening. Hell - decades later - I saw more of the same worries here.

I watched it proven that the IRS was investigating people purely for political motive. I watched it proven that the BATF was running guns to Mexico. I watched it proven that we let people die in Benghazi. Hell - I saw it proven that we lied about why they died, while the dude that made the video they lied about went to jail. I saw a dude that made movies critical of the government go to jail.

And I saw a million other things. We all saw it on TV and in the news. None of it was hidden, and nobody will dispute that any of it happened in the macro sense. The "Everything is Fine Brigade will only quibble about the details - to obfuscate the bigger picture.

So why now are people suddenly starting to get "a vibe" ? I've had a fucking vibe since the early 90s. I've had a vibe over four different Presidents in two different parties now.

Posted by: Don Q. at July




pretty sure you sought me out and started with the insults. take a peek back up the thread if you are confused.

The Russians and others have sought to influence this election and others forever. Are you not familiar with their involvement in the nuclear freeze movement? Complaining that they were influencing this election is a specious argument because they have tried to influence every election. Claiming it is a big deal in this election is essentially fake news because it is not new and was never covered in previous election cycles.

If the Russians view American strength as an impediment to their efforts to gain greater influence or regain their lost empire then anything that weakens America is likely to their benefit.

Undermining American's faith in their institutions and the press strikes at the foundation of American power. Anything that does that accrues to their benefit. Use your imagination.

So to be clear, I never said they influenced the election, I said they are in our OODA loop. Meaningful difference.

It is entirely possible that the interests of the Russians were aligned for the short term of the election.

Had Perot gone against Reagan, he would have been a rounding error.

Bush has a huge amount of blame, he ran his 1992 campaign like Republicans are supposed to run. Which means they lose.

In 1988, he ran a"Trump" style campaign with Lee Atwater tactics and beat the snot out of Dukakis running on populist issues that people cared about.

Still, the Supreme Court and the judicial branch would have been far better off with a RINO than the Clintons

The same people who set it up and funded it all would be the same ones saying "We told you so" because they own and operate damn near all of the megaphones and soap boxes.

It just underscored that at some point during the campaign, Trump HAD to win it. He would have been utterly destroyed if he'd lost.

$5+ per blade means about $1.50 per shave. I'm ready to go all Ted Koczinski and live in a shack.

I soak my whiskers and coat them with a little Barbasol right after I shower. I let that sit while I brush my teeth. Then I get dressed (except for my shirt). That gives the already wet whiskers a good 4-5 minutes of soak before I shave.

I use the same blade for at least a month. But I don't shave on weekends.

Try something similar. You'll stretch the life of whatever razor you use.

267 @#259:

I disagree but only mildly so.

Imo, the outing of the msm in such a blatant manner that it's obvious to anyone who's paying any attention at all, along with the growth of alternative means of mass comms and legit news spreading, brought us to a strategic parity with the enemy.

The msm is no longer has any real ability to filter what those of us in the fight are able to learn in real time. The allied forces have outfits that can mobilize on any topic of their choosing and bring the rain down at will.

The carriers CNN and MSNBC are, for all intents and purposes, out of action for the remainder of this war. Fox is badly damaged and struggling to stay in the fight but has as many enemy on board as friendlies.

The allied side has had the benefit of self motivated actions against the enemy by the likes of /pol and has outfits such as The_Donald subreddit as a comms channel.

One America News Network is building itself up to fighting trim.

And of course, there are the old fleet standards such as this place and its like too.

William Shatner Goes to War with... the Social Justice Warriors

Engage.

What did Kirk say? Nanoo nanoo if I remember right.

Well whatever. He's giving them full phasers and photon torpedoes.

106 I re-read some of the fusion testimony and I'm still confused about what Ms. Lindsay said (that the Russians were behind the firm...).

Fusion is a US company run by former Wall Street Journal guys, and are guns for hire. They were hired by Russia on some projects and by Hugo Chavez's minions on another. But does that mean they were hired by the Russians to put together the pee pee dossier?
I think I'm still missing a piece of the plot here.

So the question of why would Putin look to influence or help Trump, I don't think he was trying to help him so much as cause confusion and exert influence.

Per Browder's testimony today in the Senate, Putin's number one foreign policy goal was the removal of the Magnitsky Act, sanctions which were killing his personal finances by restricting his worldwide banking actions.

So with that in mind, read this about Bill and Hill taking money from Putin right around the time Hillary gave a speech saying she was not in favor of the Magnitsky Act in 2015.

205 Can't say, pep, but viewed from a small distance there so many people who were basically assigned suicide missions in the war - just the nature of the way things were done. Probably as an over-reaction to Omaha Beach, planning estimates for the first waves in Olympic, on Kyushu, had some pretty stratospheric loss assumptions. Even if one toned them down by 250% (probably reasonable, given Japanese resources, the geography, and "preparation" that might have included up to 15 fission weapons), the loss estimates were sobering.

And there's Pelileu, and many other battles that at the time or later could be second- and triple-guessed.

If half of this is true, Tony Mooch won't last week.
If even half true, Mooch is what I feared: the worst combination of NYC Boro Italian AND Goldman Sachs.

The leakers Mooch is going after from the WH staff, and are about palace intrigue.

The leaks that the FBI AG are said to be involved with are quite different, and criminal.

For the record I'm a Bannon guy.

From the article: "Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock," he said, speaking of Trump's chief strategist. "I'm not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I'm here to serve the country." If he actually said this, the Ds aren't the only ones with a projection problem.

http://tinyurl.com/yal8az2q

I thought this was a parody.
If half of this is true, Tony Mooch won't last week.
If even half true, Mooch is what I feared: the worst combination of NYC Boro Italian AND Goldman Sachs.

I don't know what to believe, but can someone explain to me why a Communications Director has basically now become the co-President?

If Scaramucci only lasts a few weeks, maybe then we can finally have a conversation that Trump may indeed be the problem, and not all of these people "failing" him?

The revolving door stuff needs to stop, voters want to feel like their leader has things under control, not constant purge after constant purge of people HE hired.

Emails between the Seattle mayor Ed Murray's office and an economist at
the University of California, Berkeley show that the mayor's staff
tried to deliberately undermine a University of Washington study showing
that the city's $15 minimum wage ordinance was harming the city's
low-income workers.

... of course, the ow-income workers already know the truth.

273 I wonder if perhaps Nick Meyers finally sitting Shatner down and slowly explaining how letting Khan initially win makes Kirk a better character was when Shatner's eyes finally started to open on how his view of things was not always the best for the rest of the cast.

276 Wanna hear something wild? When you adjust for inflation TMP made more money than Star Trek 2.

Which is odd because the first film was considered a failure and the second a huge success that saved the franchise. The thing is, everyone and their pet goat wanted to see the first film because they were so desperate for Trek at that point. So it had HUGE numbers at first. But it was very expensive as well because all those somewhat cheesy-looking effects were really expensive back in the day.

Cost $35 million to make, earned $82,258,456 (11 mill of that first weekend).

Khan cost $11.2 and made only $78,912,963, (14 mill the first weekend) so... earned less total but cost a lot less to make.

277 There was a post some time ago where some of Shatner's jokes were posted. Here's one:

"I've been feeling so depressed fed up lately that I called the Suicide Hotline. They put me through to a call center in Pakistan. I said 'I feel suicidal.' The guy got so excited and said to me 'That's wonderful! Can you drive a truck?'"

I've been groping for an analogy today.

Scaramucci will only last a few weeks. The problem is that he is Trump's kind of guy. He is many of the things I don't like about Trump. (Not all, there's way more that I don't like about Trump).

The problem is that I get why we needed Trump. All the SJW's, the corrupt Clinton machine, the lockstep ideological media, the absolute inability of a reasoned argument to surface if it's from right of left-center.

So we get Trump. I'm thinking it's something painful your Mom puts on a wound.

"That looks nasty, we have to put some Trump on it".

"But Mom, Trump hurts!"

"It's infected, if we don't put some Trump on it your arm will fall off. Now hold still."

With this sort of turnover, who else should be blamed?

Remember, Trump was the one that asked Comey to stay on.

Now Sessions is on the chopping block, and maybe Rex Tillerson as well.

Now we have the Communications Director threatening the Chief of Staff with felony charges and all sorts of firings.

In addition to Trump constantly bashing his own AG

And Spicer was just let go just a few days ago.

But I'm sure all of this chaos is some combination of fiction and/or 3rd dimensional chess.

And because Trump beat the worst Democrat candidate in the history of politics, every move from here on out can't be criticized.

On one episode of "Raw Nerve" Shatner had Rush Limbaugh as a guest. It was interesting just to see them in the same room together conversing with each other. Although I wouldn't say that the discussion was very deep, they did talk some politics and Shatner didn't give him a hard time.

Sarah Carter/Circa.com: FBI Special Counsel Under Investigation for Leaking Classified Information

The problem with draining a swamp is that there's nothing to uncover by draining it, except deeper swamp.

FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is purportedly under a Department of Justice criminal investigation for allegedly leaking classified national security information to the media, according to multiple government officials close to the probe who spoke with Circa on the condition of anonymity.

FBI spokeswoman Carol Cratty said the bureau would not comment on Baker and would not confirm or deny any investigation. Baker did not return comment when Circa attempted to reach him through the FBI.

This comes as Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would soon be making an announcement regarding the progress of leak investigations. A DOJ official declined to comment on Circa’s inquiry into Baker but did say, the planned announcement by Sessions is part of the overall "stepped up efforts on leak investigations."

Three sources, with knowledge of the apparent investigation, told Circa that Baker is the top suspect in an ongoing leak investigation, but Circa has not been able to confirm the details of what national security information or material was allegedly leaked.

If "The People" want something small changed they can fire their manager and hire another, and if they want a big change they can vote in an amendment to the Constitution and then the managers are expected to faithfully carry out the new way of doing things. It was a close to The People being sovereign as could be managed without mobs or constant polling of voters.

Okay so I had this thought.

What if Trump has known for weeks that these investigations on leakers was coming to ahead and all of his tweets were a setup to say I "I told you so". and "I get results".

Basically, the FNM will bury Baker as a story and let Sessions have that scalp without too much complaint. Trump and Sessions playing around like you suggest only make sense if it ends up hitting Comey, Mueller, Clinton or a high level Obamunist like Rice or Powers.

Repost on point:
"Before becoming FBI Director, and after being a prosecutor, Comey did eight years in the private sector as the head lawyer at Lockheed and Bridgewater, and was on the board at HSBC. His background didn't fit any of these positions. I'd say he was hired and paid to help fend off investigations because of his federal prosecutorial contacts.
Bridgewater is the biggest hedge fund of all. I'm speculating they had issues like what hit SAC Capital and Stevie Cohen, which was the inspiration for the TV show Billions.
Just sayin"

Posted by: zmdavid at July 27, 2017 03:30 PM (xqRaG)

Last night, the looking down the nose from Krauthammer and some other elite on Fox about Trump point blank issuing his directive on Twitter was hilarious. OMG, they were so offended that he didn't have some giant buildup to the announcement, with all the answers in place as to what is going to happen to current Trannies in the military. That he didn't have all his generals, his cabinet, and the full contingent of psychiatrists from the VA behind him to answer why the rights of trannies to join the military were being abridged.

The President made a decision based on consultation with affected parties and now it's up to them to roll his decision out legally . Why is he supposed to be there cradling these poor transgenders who will be discharged out with likely full military benefits? He made a decision and has moved on ....

There was a story a while ago about... Tiananmen Square IIRC, but maybe it was a different event. Anyway, China. People were posting classified ads/ announcements to the local papers about that event (coded, IIRC), or maybe other demonstrations, even though information is supposed to be censored.

Turns out the people in charge of reading the items and sending them to be printed weren't aware of the events, and didn't recognize the codes or that they weren't supposed to publish, so the truth got out.

I hope that makes sense and/or someone with a better memory can explain it better. But it's basically what you said, only in Chinese.

There are currently 250 transgenders in the military, thanks to Obama and Sec. Carter Ash's removal of the ban last year prior to the election.
It allowed for a review of the policy for a year and of course, needed transgenders to serve so they could say , Hey it works, it's great,. Ash also approved for the VA to pay for all transgender drugs, surgeries, and accomodations.

Mattis extended the time needed to study the issue before it became absolute policy for six months, and Trump now has ended it in full.

247 Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. That could be reworked in DC as

"Two Degrees of George Soros"

Trump has Kuchner and his brother that were backed in Cadre (some real estate venture) for like $250M by Soros. Peter Thiel is in some bond fund venture with Soros. Of course every Democrat is linked to multiple groups that push misinformation or some leftist theme.

Beck back in Fox days did exposes on Soros, showing the 100 or more groups he was underwriting, all basically subversive groups like Media Matters. Soros is said to behind the drive that turned Benghazi (a short term thing) into regime change, with a view the destabilization (via Muslimization) of Europe. Plan seems to be working.

It all starts unraveling by pulling on those little leaker threads.

His financial declarations required to be a member of the WH, are public record and are on the govt. website. Rove was on Fox this morning, with his whiteboard , explaining the four steps you or I or Politico need to do to get it downloaded from the site, as part of public records.

Rove said this was just stupid out of Scaramucci right out of the gate and lessens his credibility.

270 @213 There was a story a while ago about... Tiananmen Square IIRC, but maybe it was a different event. Anyway, China. People were posting classified ads/ announcements to the local papers about that event (coded, IIRC), or maybe other demonstrations, even though information is supposed to be censored.

Turns out the people in charge of reading the items and sending them to be printed weren't aware of the events, and didn't recognize the codes or that they weren't supposed to publish, so the truth got out.

I hope that makes sense and/or someone with a better memory can explain it better. But it's basically what you said, only in Chinese.

It was Tiananmen Square. The ad was something along the lines of, "Remember the heroes of [date]!"

294 Wow. This just keeps getting better and better.

You need to understand the story behind Hermitage Capital and the CEO William Browder for it to make sense and it would take to long to type it all here.

But in brief, Hermitage was a financial management firm focused and working in Russia. The CEO, Browder, claimed that he was defrauded by Putin and the Russian govenment to the tune of $230 million. His Russian lawyer was a guy named Magitsky.

Magitsky uncovered the corruption and was going to expose Putin before he was thrown in jail, tortured and killed. Yea, Putin is not a nice guy.

Browder said he made his life's work after that to get justice for Magitsky. He tried in Russia but Putin. So he went to a couple Senators in the US and they got the Magitsky Act passed which put sanctions on Putin and his cronies. This is what Putin is so angry about. Money. His money.

One of the shell companies that Browder was accusing of laundering the money was a Russian shell controlled by Putin called Prevezon. The law firm representing Prevezon in the US is Baker Hostetler and the lead attorney was one Micheal Mukasey, Attorney General under George W Bush.

Baker Hostetler is also the law firm that hired Fusion GPS to slime Browder.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

One of the really interesting things Browder said at his hearing today is that Putin is by far the richest man in the world, worth over $200 billion. And he has the money in banks and shell companies all over the world including here.

The Magitsky Act sanctions have cut him off from huge chunks of that money and his number 1 priority is to get those sanctions removed and he doesn't mind spreading around lots and lots of money to get what he wants.

This has been said on 4chan pol.

The theory there is that Trump is making the Democrats scream that Sessions, like Mueller, is Above Reproach.

Then, when the hammer comes down, they CANNOT scream about Sessions, since they are on record praising him.

As for Sessions not going for this... I'll respectfully disagree. If Trump is going for the Clinton Crime Syndicate and beating up on Sessions is part of the plan (and Sessions knows that) I'm thinking he'll take one for the team.

Finally, Trump comes to this with a compeltely different skill set. Yes, he has certain disadvantages, but has other HUGE advantages. Like Twitter. I don't think we've seen half of what he has planned for us.

To some extent you don't need a grand puppeteer--given that it's a culture of its own, many of the cells are self-directing. There isn't really a single head to the beast as a result--the occasional "Hail Hydra" joke is quite fitting. (Resonance with other multi-headed beasts is left as an exercise to the student.)

What would be viable is cutting off cash flow and compromising communications, both of which would be extremely challenging in the environment as it stands.

376 The transgender thing has got a lot of enlisted guys pissed off- they are being called bigots by people who have NO idea what it means to serve in the military.

As someone upthread pointed out, transitioning is a minimum of 3 years- probably closer to 4- and then constant heavy hormone medication. All of this makes you completely ineligible to go into the field, which is their JOB!

With most military terms up in 3-4 years, this eats up the entirety of their stint.

Plus, the thing that really pissed off my son is that most of them are men-to-women, and they would qualify for classes/positions under the women's standards which is much less rigorous than the men's standards (running times, sit ups, push ups, etc). So men who could not make the cut are at the top of their class, so to speak, in the women's group. Plus as most are presurgery, they also have dicks and are in group showering, bathroom and sleeping situations with women.

So, they can't do their job, costs a ton of money, and make difficult living situations even more difficult for the people who have to pick up the slack on the job they can't do.

Way to go, Obama.

390 376 The transgender thing has got a lot of enlisted guys pissed off- they are being called bigots by people who have NO idea what it means to serve in the military.

As someone upthread pointed out, transitioning is a minimum of 3 years- probably closer to 4- and then constant heavy hormone medication. All of this makes you completely ineligible to go into the field, which is their JOB!

With most military terms up in 3-4 years, this eats up the entirety of their stint.

Plus, the thing that really pissed off my son is that most of them are men-to-women, and they would qualify for classes/positions under the women's standards which is much less rigorous than the men's standards (running times, sit ups, push ups, etc). So men who could not make the cut are at the top of their class, so to speak, in the women's group. Plus as most are presurgery, they also have dicks and are in group showering, bathroom and sleeping situations with women.

So, they can't do their job, costs a ton of money, and make difficult living situations even more difficult for the people who have to pick up the slack on the job they can't do.

Way to go, Obama.

So, saudly, not a lot of warbirds, but when the acoustics/atmospherics are right, the Ospreys sound very close (they have a distinctive sound). Even better, the .50 cal machines guns at the ranges can be heard sometimes. Pretty nice for suburban SoCal.

450 Can't speak to Putin's or his team's innermost druthers, but generally speaking, this "country X wants candidate Y to win!" stuff is baseless, and doesn't reflect the way actual adults running actual countries look at these things. This goes back to the Cold War days, but people generally just impose their preferences or biases onto a simplified factual framework and come up with *additional* reasons the candidates they don't like are baaaaad.

Even while a foreign rival like Putin can and will distinguish between various US candidates, he's got to prudently assume that the areas of conflict with the US will remain much the same. He's got to be ready to deal with whatever cards he is dealt, in terms of US leadership. Same goes for others watching US politics.

456 >>I've contended for a long time that Putin sees the real enemy as the globalists. He's fine with a US concerned with its own interests that leaves alone a Russia concerned with its own interests.

One small twist to that. Putin IS Russia in his mind. Contrary to what I've heard here before, nothing happens of consequence in Russia unless Putin says so and the reason is money.

Putin is the richest man in the world. By far. And he the US is now a threat to that fortune in the form of sanctions. That is his focus, removing those sanctions. It is his number one foreign policy goal.

"If Baker was previously part of the FISA apparatus, could he have been the conduit to Powers or Rice?"


The FBI is one of the two (I think 2) agencies that has access to the raw intel data collected, NSA is the other. Baker was probably getting the Presidential Daily Brief which would have the collected conversations with masked names and likely had the power to unmask them for others. With Comey as the head I'd suspect that the unmasking went through the FBI not the NSA so much when it was for political purposes.

466 And the stuff about Trump's Sessions tweets being kabuki to somehow immunize Sessions from media lynching when he lowers hammers in various areas: kids, let's get serious. The media won't be bound for one nanosecond, even within a news cycle to anything they've said, any mood they've set. They'll turn on a dime without breaking a sweat.

This particular part of the speculation about Trump's tweets seems to assume we're in a completely different country than the US. The media cannot be "distracted" if they have some jihad to conduct, and they cannot be hampered in any way by "set-ups" or a need to be sane or consistent. Even Sessions' short time in the spotlight itself contains whiplash examples as the Dems and media go from collegiality to vile slanders and right back to mild praise - depending on what's going on.

470 Russia and the USSR before it routinely attempted to meddle in US politics, with little to show for it. They had some more effect in much smaller, less important countries, logically enough, but even there, it was never a productive tool of influence, which is why it didn't receive much in the way of resources. That is, after the post-WWII period in Europe, up to the 1950s, when the Soviets were hip-deep in trying to influence politics when things were still quite sporty in places like France, then Italy and Greece. They didn't really achieve much there, either.

President of Human Rights Foundation: Fusion GPS is a Professional Smear Organization Hired By Big-Money Players to Destroy Anyone Who Opposes Their Clients

Thor Halvorsen claims that he was exposing a corrupt company called Derwick which had sold a bunch of faulty electric plants in Venezeula, with the contract awarded by corrupt officials who got kickbacks from the company.

In Venezeula -- who'd imagine such a thing.

He says that Derwick then hired Fusion GPS to begin planting stories in "fringe websites" that he was a pedophile and drug addict.

He says their tactic is to accuse any enemy of their clients of acts so heinous that mere innocence isn't enough to remove the stain.

Sounds like he's saying they're a company behind #FakeNews.


Watch his interview on Tucker Carlson.


I feel like a naif and I'm embarrassed to say this but I never knew the full dimensions of what was going on. I knew about oppo research and all that, but I didn't know there existed smear organizations with spies and ex-"journalists" on the payrolls, or that such disreputable smear-shops could so easily plant stories with their "journalist" buddies.

I like to think of myself as a cynic, but man, I'm really just a babe in the woods.

"What happened" is easy. Election night, when you lost to the worst candidate in the history of our nation, you wouldn't even drag your drunk-ass, colostomy-bagged, anti-seizure-wearing carcass onto the stage to say thank you to the effeminate men and masculine women who had busted their asses trying to get you elected because they weren't old enough (or bright enough) to know who you were.

You lost because the majority of the country already knew that trifling b*tch was you.

2) If s/he is not your president, you don't have to respect the office of obey the law.

127 The movie "Enemy of the State" has been on TV recently, with Gene Hackman as the former NSA guy that knows all about their tracking and villainy. Will Smith (plays a lawyer) ends up with some evidence on a senator, and they aim to destroy him and any others involved.

To destroy him they murder his friend, and plant evidence that Smith's character did it. Hackman says they did it because that would make him easier to find, and also discredit him if he went public with the intel.

That was made in like 1998, and he said then they were tracking all phone calls for key words, doing all sorts of spying they are doing now we know. But it must have seemed pretty crazy in 1998.

Of course Hillary has collected smear files for decades, and pedophile island has many visitors. They held that "grab her kitty" tape on Trump for 12 years or so. They are not new at the game of treachery and treason, and can insert elements of truth into their bizarre "fake news" soap operas to cover their tracks.

Option one, the odds of the conspiracy go down a bit. Option two, WAY up.

151 "They aren't even reporters any longer. They're twitter feed bloggers who hire reporters."

I laughed myself hoarse over the firm which outsourced some of their coding work to a freelance programmer. An expensive contract, worth a lot of money. But the coder had a great resume and top credentials, so they assigned it to him, working remotely.

They then found out later on that the guy had further outsourced all the actual technical work to someone in China, paying them a comparative pittance. While he himself sat there with his feet up, playing games all day, cashing the big fat checks coming in from corporate.

188 "Of course Hillary has collected smear files for decades"

Worth remembering: during the Clinton presidency, in the residential wing of 1600 Pennsylvania, there were stacks and stacks of file boxes filled with FBI dossiers.

They were doing oppo. On the public's dime and the public's time. Using officially sourced intel from agencies of the federal government, material that's not supposed to be casually available for partisan political purposes.

Except they only focused on known threats (both Republican and Democratic). People who had already risen to such a level of political prominence that they would be plausible future Presidential challengers.

That's why Obama blindsided Hillary in the 2008 primaries.

At the time in the 1990s that Clintonworld was busily doing all of this covert advance work on people's dirty laundry, Obama was an obscure backbencher in a state legislature. Not on the radar at all. So when he suddenly came out of nowhere later on, they had nothing on the guy. She panicked and floundered.

No, the media is hardly covering it so far which is not surprising. The first you have to remember about Fusion GPS is that they are essentially part of the media. It is a firm started by ex-jounalists and what they do is "dig up" (read make up) dirt and salacious information to discredit anyone who goes up against their clients so that the media won't believe anything they say.

Then they present unbelievable information which is so awful that as Halvorssen said there really is no defense. This is what they did with Trump and the Russia Dossier and things like him peeing on a bed covered with Russian hookers. It's so outrageous you almost can't fight back.

They aren't a research company, they are a professional hit team designed to crush the enemies of their clients. And again, they are very tight with both the Clintons and the DNC. You guys see where this is headed?

218 Having been involved in Arkansas politics on the periphery (not with the Clintons however) during the era of the Clintons--their m.o. has always been cash and dirt. Any politician that crossed them ended up in trouble, usually legal. Bill Clinton's women friends ended up being either paid off or threatened--many were married to others. Walking around money was distributed throughout to ensure voting turnout and some large Arkie corporations bought influence.

Hilary and Bill resemble Tom and Daisy from the Great Gatsby--leaving human and political wreckage behind without so far paying the price. If you combine the Great Gatsby with All the Kings Men, you have some idea about Arkansas politics from 76-92.

There were also other oddities such as prosecutors, a castration of a rape suspect by masked men, an infamously incompetent state medical examiner who decreed that two teenage boys were killed because they smoked too much marijuana and fell asleep on the RR tracks among other issues.

There is a reason that Hillary received one of her lowest vote percentages in Arkansas in 2016.

It's weird, though-- I, like many others, assumed that most of the Clinton power base during and before the election was the potential of her becoming POTUS, and as soon as she had no real political future, their empire would collapse, or at least erode inexorably.

Bit it seems to be self-perpetuating, not even requiring holding office or the possibility of such. It's troubling.

285 What is so infuriating is that one would think this story could make a
REAL journalist a superstar if they truly dug into this type of
operation
***
Remember how the government went after Rosen, Atkinson, and others with impunity for looking into relatively minor issues in comparison?

So this real potential superstar has to:

1) Have sufficient connections in the government to run down the story
2) Not care that some of the most powerful people in the country, with access to the FBI and CIA will attempt to destroy their career.
3) Not care that there are credible accusations that the same people will engage in violence and even murder
4) Not have any potential skeletons of their own in their closet, or even anything easy to make up
5) Be willing to take down the uniparty, whose ideology meshes with almost all professional journalists, and hand a 1974+ landslide to the current opposition aka the "alt-right"

There is only one person with those characteristics right now and the FNM and the government have tried very hard to make sure there won't be more. Why do you think that when a budding independent journalist like Mike Cerno....whatever his name is...pop up the attack on them is incessant?

That one person would be...Steve Bannon and he seems to be busy.

304 Reagan tore down that wall, but the KGB maybe became a central Europe crime syndicate (according to on old TED Talk). A friend of mine's son spent a year at a home/school for abused girls from the eastern bloc, and they told me the human trafficking is worse than we could imagine.

In movies they like to portray the Russian gangs as the worst, most vicious. So it seems significant that Hillary/Podesta were taking so much money from them, and granting big favors like uranium and our tech (via Skolkovo deals, and light sanctions). And pedophile island and Podesta's creepy child spanking "art" is still sick, regardless of whether the pizza stuff is real or diversion.

Trump and the Mooch ... seems like they had to stay clean (for the most part) since they do real business where such things can matter. But we know Democrats are basically the commies' pals, complete with all sorts of corruption of character, going back to the 60's and Weather Underground style riot and bombing.

307 I feel like a naif and I'm embarrassed to say this but I never knew the full dimensions of what was going on. I knew about oppo research and all that, but I didn't know there existed smear organizations with spies and ex-"journalists" on the payrolls, or that such disreputable smear-shops could so easily plant stories with their "journalist" buddies.

I have never been so naif.

Twice in my "career" as a citizen-journalist blogger I have drawn the attention of the professional attack-dogs -- and in neither case was it for reasons you'd expect.

One time it was because of this post:

Obama's $3 million S.F. dinner -- the complete guest list

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2011/04/21/obamas-3-million-s-f-dinner-the-complete-guest-list/

The Obama Administration apparently flipped out that I had somehow managed to photograph the entire super-secret private guest list of an Obama fundraiser, and published all the names online.

Starting about three days after this report came out, the following things happened:

-- DDOS attacks knocked my site offline
-- Bomb threats sent directly to the server-farm building in Texas where the physical server-computer housing my Web site was located, specifically blaming zomblog for the threat, forcing the evacuation of the building; the threateners said there would be more bombs unless zomblog was taken offline.
-- A barrage of creepy phishing emails sent to every single email address on my domain.
-- Professional trolls stalking me everywhere I went online, slandering me with insane smears in the comments section.
-- etc.

I am quite sure that it was a smear-campaign company hired by the Obama team.

Prior to that, my first Up Your Alley Fair report (http://www.zombietime.com/up_your_alley_2008/) sent SF gay activists into apoplexies of rage, and in the aftermath so much evil shit happened that I'm actually too freaked out to discuss it, even now, 9 years later. That was the ONLY time hacker-stalkers really went after me personally, with an alarming level of success; and the only time they (unknowingly, I think) breached my primary anonymity wall. Luckily, I didn't react, and they didn't realize how close they came. And once again, it was so professional that I was convinced (and remain convinced) that it was a pro public-relations firm behind the assault -- a firm similar to Fusion GPS.

309 In 2014 Fusion GPS began working on behalf of Derwick to ensure that the evidence of
their crimes and the narrative of their spectacular thievery would never appear in the media.
The media was a significant threat to Derwick because, even though law enforcement already
had Derwick on its radar, prominent media exposure would surely accelerate a prosecution.
Fusion GPS cofounders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch knew as much, having worked at
the
Wall Street Journal 
 for a combined tenure of over two decades. During their time there,
they published articles that preceded criminal investigations, indictments, and arrests

But disregarding some world-wide completely intertwined conspiracy, do you really think that some people with unlimited amounts of money may truly desire unlimited power and use their resources to murder, manipulate, &c and get that power? And I mean just as an individual sociopath/psychopath who has those kinds of resources.

Most of the conspiracy theories presented have fundamental flaws or factual inaccuracies that fall apart under any sort of scrutiny. Yet people cling to them with religious faith. I don't claim that conspiracies cannot exist, I am pointing out that most of what is claimed as conspiracies are non-falsifiable speculations that consist of half-truths and begging the question.

Sorry for the grief and worry you endured. Glad they didn't find you--the real you, I mean.

313 Mark Andrew Edwards: "Trump is hamstrung by Barry leave-behinds. I know this sounds very...fictional. But I hope Trump uses this as an excuse to cut staffing, put criminals in jail AND replaces them with his partisans."

It's even worse than that. There are actors of The Borg and NeverTrumpers and infinite numbers of K Street visitors and who knows what all else with hands in the cookie jar otherwise known as "taxing authority" and "legislation". This mass simply will not let Trump's people into the game. They actively block appointments to office. They can harass them when they get there. The partisans against Trump are on both sides of the aisle with the Progressive persuasion composing the highest percentage.

What we are seeing, yet again, is that it's The State against The Citizen. Government run amok and there's damn little recourse the Subjects can take. We only know recognize the folly of following the rules those in power have established for us, the rules they themselves routinely ignore and circumvent.

Trump is just the guy who we picked to beat the weeds to scare out the rats. We just didn't fully grasp the populations.

Hillary Will Offer Personal, Candid Rehash of All Her Scripted Robotic Excuses in New Book "What Happened"

How 'bout that title, huh?

Hillary has a real gift for catchy pith, doesn't she? "I'm with her." "Stronger together."

"What happened."

She's a poet made of nothing but heart and laser-light.

So this gin-soaked nutter continues spiraling downward.

David Harsanyi explains:

[T]he reasons Why It Happened are pretty clear.

First of all, no one really likes you. I don’t say this out of political or personal malice. I assume few people like me, either. But being inherently unlikeable is an awkward attribute to have when you have designs on public office...

Now, granted, this might have something to do with your long history of corruption, mendacity and malleable political principles. Or maybe it’s just something about your personality. Whatever the case, no amount of whataboutism regarding Donald Trump can erase living history.

It’s also probably difficult for voters to be stirred by someone who wants to be president as badly as you do. The ambition, it oozes from you. And because you’ll say anything polls tell you to say, you are extraordinarily uninspiring. Your politics are a sort of a lagging indicator. By the time you embrace them, the moment has passed us by.

...

Some politicians can get over their shadiness and disagreeable nature by excelling at retail politics and/or strategic thinking. You’re not that person.

The Federalist's Bre Peyton collects some funny parodies and reactions to Hillary's "What Happened."

Here are a couple:

55 Personally I think "what happened" is a perfect title for Hillary. I imagine she says that a lot, as she wakes up from a drunken bender or her latest collapse.

"What Happened" has a better ring to it than "Where The Hell Am I And What Is This Kewpie Doll Doing In The Alley With Me? HUMA!!!!!"

Ten? I'd say half their losses, at least. How many times has the starting pitcher been pulled with a win, and the team loses? Its ridiculous.

One of these days, the team is gonna pull dusty baker off a reliever with a bat in each hand, covered in spattered blood and teeth. I think he's a lousy manager, but I feel sorry for him. Leave the starter in to lose and tire out, possibly get injured, or pull him and lose to a relief staff that can't get outs to save their lives?

165 Hillary is interesting psychology, no?

She's a misanthrope -- hates people, but wants to be worshiped.

She hates her father especially. Hence the Projection about being the victim of misogyny.

She's incredibly self-centered, and hence amoral.

She not intuitive or decisive (Bill is good on this score). Everything must be studied to death by her minions, in part so that she can blame them when things go wrong.
She's not as smart as she thinks she is. Often a problem with lawyers.

There's only one place for this kind of Leader -- a government bureaucracy. Which is where she'd be, but for Bill.

On the other side is WikiLeaks itself who said it wasn't the Russians, and hinted strongly that it was Seth Rich. Now this sleazebag is confirmed to have had access to all of it.

Yet, it's treated like settled science that the Russians did it. Seriously, WTF?

I believe Podesta went out to tell the crowd to go home because she was too drunk at that point to get up on stage. But if she had, it would have been epic.

332 This reminds me of MMA fighters who get knocked out, and when they come to, ask "Who won?". If you have to ask, you probably lost.

In this case, "What Happened?"is probably what Hillary said when she sobered up after passing out. At least she had a 50% chance of passing out from celebratory drinking in that case...

But there was 100% she was drinking that night, just like every night.

Outside, night. A wealthy estate in Chappaqua. The date "Feb 2, 2016" is displayed on the screen.

Vivaldi plays as the camera pans in on the house through a window. The Audience sees BILL CLINTON through the curtains.

BILL CLINTON DUCKS and a Tiffani Lamp hits the wall behind him.

Record Scratch - Music stops.

BILL CLINTON stands up. The video pauses.

BILL CLINTON, NARRATOR: That's me, Bill Clinton. You're probably wondering how we got here. Let's back up a bit. It all started about 8 years ago...
