Congressman Matt Gaetz Discusses: “A Criminal Conspiracy”…

Well, well, well…. that’s a shift in language.  Congressional Rep Matt Gaetz: “I believe there’s been a criminal conspiracy”…  This specific language elevates the current political dynamic toward an exponential level of risk for those within the “conspiracy”.

.

18 U.S. Code § 241Conspiracy against rights: If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured — They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both. (link)

    A question for sundance … The Mueller special council investigation was empaneled to look at the Russia Dossier and possible collusion by whomever, so, shouldn’t the SC have independently found the same evidence as the Inspector General and Congress? Wouldn’t it be possible for Mueller to take said evidence and start indicting the FBI/DOJ conspirators?

    Mueller sees the biggest scandal in American history unfolding before his very eyes and he has the perfect mechanism to rush in and be the hero!

    If he doesn’t then everyone knows his investigation was a sham.

      Repubs were too dumb. They would have complicity drummed DJT out of office because they believed the establishment media that DJT colluded. CTH and other twitter researchers are the ones that researched this and put it out there, and then thankfully some honest Congressmen ran with it.

    If you read nothing else tonight, read this review of a film made about Obama’s final year (playing in some theaters to be released by HBO in May). It is gobsmacklngly both frightening and hilarious. It is a killer of a review.

    (an excerpt)

    “The Final Year, though, is chiefly a study of Obama-administration foreign policy as overseen by Secretary of State John Kerry, Power, and Rhodes, who at the time of filming had become (in)famous for telling The New York Times Magazine that he had set up an “echo chamber” in Washington of Obama sycophants in order to mislead the American people about expert opinion on the Iran deal, and for pouring contempt on D.C. reporters, who he said were typically 27 and “literally know nothing.” From the doc, it appears that Rhodes, not Kerry, was running U.S. foreign policy in 2016, and perhaps for some time before that.”

      After a fabulous year of winning and having competent, intelligent adults running the country, it was difficult to read this and relive the memories and the emotions of the eight years of hell that we lived through.

      I hope this gets a monumental amount of attention and that many who refused to see the truth will have a greater understanding of how monstrous and evil the Obama Administration was and that HC would have pounded the nails into our coffin.

      John Kerry was always and is still an elitist buffoon with the intellect of a flea. He only wanted the title and the authority to fly around the world on the tax payers dollar spewing his ignorance to anyone who would listen. I have a feeling that many found him to be a jackass.

  6. I was not a CTH reader until recently. I actually found the site when trying to research whether a fraternity, of sorts, existed in DC to connect the establishment. I’d seen evidence of links between people, some of whom might otherwise be adversaries, that suggested the kind of bonds that generally form in fraternal organizations that utilize hazing (I won’t go into detail, but the sharing of psychologically frightening situations within a controlled context can form bonds that lead to more trust within a group, which is necessary for any successful conspiracy).

    What I found here intrigued me enough that I’ve been returning regularly for a few weeks.

    In full disclosure, I went to boarding school with Ivanka Trump. We were never very close, but were casual friends, and I spoke with her about her father many times. I met him a few times as well. I was always impressed by him (though I thought he was rather nouveau riche in ways I didn’t like). She clearly respected him greatly, and I can say from first-hand experience that she is highy intelligent. I say the following not to brag, but to provide context: I reference Ivanka’s intelligence as someone who was recruited to Choate based on a perfect score on the SSAT (the equivalent of the SAT for secondary school admission – I got a near perfect score on the SAT as well, but not a full 1600, in part because I only slept for about 30 minutes the night before the test).

    With all that said, and based on what i know of Trump and how he thinks, I have an operating theory of what his plan was and what it now is. I warn you that this is, to a degree, cynical, though I have come to support him. These are simply my thoughts.

    First and foremost, Trump is motivated by ego. This is not always a bad thing – I’m a resident of New York City, and regardless of how you might feel about Michael Bloomberg, he provides some useful parallels. Men who are getting older and who have accumulated enormous wealth often being to contemplate the manner in which they will be remembered. At this point (at the risk of doxing myself, I should also admit I am a Freemason, and a member of one of the most prestigious Lodges in New York, and, while I am not aware of any massive Masonic conspiracy to control the world, I can see how that perception would form because I regularly encounter very powerful people who call me “Brother”, so I am intimately familiar with how power affects people).

    I know Trump was snubbed, at an earlier age, from certain such organizations. As an example, there’s a rival Masonic Lodge where the running joke is, “It’s not enough that you went to the right schools and have the right career, they care where your grandfather went to preschool.” Like most jokes, it’s funny because it’s true (and yes, it is entirely true). Let’s just say that being born in Queens would automatically disqualify one for membership (as would not being a 12th or 13th generation American who grew up in Manhattan and attended all the right schools, amongst many other things).

    All of this is to help explain Trump’s mindset, which many seem unable to do. Most people would assume that a multibillionaire would be accepted by the “elite” of society. This is not entirely true, and I say this as someone who is absolutely accepted by those same people (I’m a Mayflower descendant, my patrilineal 5th Great Grandfather literally crossed the Delaware with George Washington, fought in the Battle of Trenton, and rose to the rank of Brigadier General, among other things). I know this sounds like bragging, and perhaps, to some degree it is, but it’s also primarily to explain that I KNOW THESE PEOPLE WELL.

    So, to put Trump in context, the only people who ever really treated him like “one of them” were the construction workers helping him build things. The minute he moved into building in Manhattan, he realized he’d never be “one of them”.

    He’s had a bit of a chip on his shoulder ever since. But, as they say, “Success it the best revenge.” He succeeded, He became far wealthier than most of the people who continue to snub him. He built giant buildings, including the Wollan Rink (which, if you lived in NYC, you’d realize was a huge affront – the elite here had been trying to build it for years, he came in and built it ahead of schedule and under budget, and didn’t even put his name on it, but EVERYONE ice skates there, or their kids do, and they all know what really happened).

    He kind of had it out for them. Not that he wanted revenge, per se, but he wanted to succeed and prove his detractors wrong. And his ego isn’t the “I want to be President” type; it’s the “I want my face on Mount Rushmore” type. It’s also reading “The Art of the Deal”, as he lays out his thinking quite clearly. Three quotes worth reading (and highly relevant right now) are, “I keep a lot of balls in the air, because most deals fall out, no matter how promising,” “I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion,” and, “My leverage came from confirming an impression they were already predisposed to believe.”

    Briefly, the first quote means he never goes into a potential deal without backup plans. He had two when running for President. Option 1) Become President entirely on my own terms. Option 2) Lose the Presidential race, gain a ton of publicity among right-leaning people, and start the biggest TV news network ever (after all, Fox is slightly right of center, which means maybe 40% of the population would pick Trump TV if it were an option). That’s smart.

    The second quote explains many of his seemingly inflammatory statements. “S#!)hole” sounds bad, and plays in to accusations of racism or xenophobia. It’s also undeniably accurate. He knew he’d be called a racist and a xenophobe anyway, so why not chum the waters with quotes that would spur conversation in a way he controlled? If you’ve read both Machiavelli and Sun Tzu’s different books, both titled, “The Art of War”, you would know that a HUGE part of winning, particularly in asymmetric warfare, is using your enemy’s strengths against them. Trump does this as a “very stable genius” would. He knows the media hate him and want sound bites that appeal to their confirmation bias, so he gives those to them, but embeds them with language that will appeal to the majority. They repeat “s$&@hole” refereeing to countries matching the description, and he wins the argument. He is also playing on another level, knowing that if, later, they fight his elimination of “refugee” status, he can say, “But you said the weren’t s$@#holes, so why do you object to my returning thei citizens to their wonderful non-s$#%hole countries?” I am, at least on paper, literally a genius, and it’s taken me almost 2 years to realize Trump is much, much smarter than I am, but once I realized it, and started connecting the dots, I realized he is playing on a level I could not, and I am sure his opposition is almost entirely comprised of far less intelligent people.

    That last quote demonstrates that he’s known for more than 3 decades that it’s best to utilize pre-existing biases to one’s advantage. In this case, it’s Russian collusion. Based on my second point, he is using this in a way I don’t think even SD has fully grasped, yet. So, if you’ve read this far, here is my real, true, theory of his plan.

    Trump decided, as I said above, that he’d either run the biggest TV network in history or be President entirely on his own terms (based on wanting his head on Mount Rushmore). He knew being President would suck – he and his family would be ridiculed and maligned, his enemies would go scorched Earth on him, and it would be hard to win, especially if he went Mount Rushmore on them. But, if your goal is to be one of 2 or 3 names people remember 2,000 years from now, what’s the point of doing it in any other way?

    So, he says, “I can easily win on the TV thing. If I get stuck being President, I have to win, bigly, and that means fixing the biggest problems America faces.” And what does that mean? MAKE AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN. So, what are those problems? Massive corruption throughout government, incredible media malfeasance, conspiracies to control everything, weakness on the world stage, an economy that isn’t providing high-paying jobs to its middle class, mass immigration not coupled with assimilation, and more.

    That’s a big list. Normally, running for President means making deals with all kinds of political operatives and donors that restrict the ability to maneuver, so that was automatically out. He had to win without owing anything to anyone, other than his base. And who were his base? As I said before – the kinds of people he met on his construction sites who actually treated him with respect. He knew the elites love to preen and play stupid games, but the construction guys – they treated him like one of them. Not like their boss – they have too much pride for that – but like one of the guys, as long as he showed he didn’t think he was above them. Who does Trump really respect and LOVE? A guy who can operate a jackhammer, or perfectly install a rivet. He’s known to be OCD about the quality of his construction (this was used against him politically – sometimes he underpaid contractors who did poor work, just like Disney, which isn’t an example of him cheating, it’s an example of having high standards and respecting high quality blue-collar work).

    So, he didn’t make the deals. He beat the establishment. He didn’t take big money, at least with any strings attached. He didn’t take the advice of the fancy political consultants. And, despite his myriad opponents, he won, and with a strategy none of them would have seen in a million years – taking out the “Blue Wall” and winning with the people he fundamentally understood so well.

    And that gets us to where we are now. As I said, I now realize he is smarter than I am. I think everything I’ve said, up to now, is right. The next part is a guess, and please remember, the guy planning this is smarter than I am and has been thinking about it for longer than I have, so I may not totally get it. I still have an educated guess. Here goes.

    Trump knew the media would oppose him with everything they had. The best way to beat that was to let them get way over their skis – give them more than enough rope to hang themselves. The obvious route for this was and is Russia. So, let the investigation run. Feed some rumors and “apparent” mis-steps or evidence to fuel the narrative. Let them accuse the right of being “conspiracy theorists” in opposing their conspiracy theory. Play rope-a-dope to the greatest extent possible. Get the Democrats in on it.

    At the same time, get the economy humming. Get African American and Hispanic unemployment down to historic lows. If possible, destroy ISIS, get Iran and North Korea in line, and have economic growth back to levels economists declared wishful thinking (he’s basically on top of all of this – hint: watch that next SpaceX launch and ask, what’s in that launch? OWLs to take out Natanz and other hardened facilities?).

    Then, near the mid-terms. spring the trap. Prove there was no Russian collusion but there was a FAR-worse-than-Watergate conspiracy against him. Many people will just double down, somehow, in total delusion. But everyone not fully bought into the existing narrative will be left wondering, “Do I trust the media or Trump?” At that point, their choices will be that either A) Trump is a treasonous insane idiot who conspired with Russia to steal the election so he could entirely mismanage the country or B) The media was lying and Trump is a very stable genius who did not conspire with anyone but instead grew the economy faster than Obama ever did, put more money in their pockets, fixed ISIS, reduced illegal immigration, and ended the nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea (and maybe created a lasting Israeli Middle Eastern Peace process). This will create massive cognitive dissonance for a lot of people, but most people will choose B. That is especially true for any black or Hispanic people who are also asked to decide whether Trump is more racist than Obama, knowing that Trump maybe said more non-PC things, but that he reduced unemployment to historically low levels while getting them wage increases while Obama paid lip service. Most people believe results more than words, so I think that works to Trump’s advantage.

    At this point, I think that’s the general gist of his plan (plus arresting a boatload of conspirators who tried to undermine his election and then his Presidency).

    This was a hard pill for me to swallow. In all honesty, I voted for Gary Johnson, and went home wanting to see Clinton win (I was worried Trump would be an authoritarian). As time has passed, I realized I was wrong. We’re lucky Trump won, and I really do think he is playing three dimensional chess.

    MAGA!

      The globalists hate and fear Trump. He was supposed to faun, grovel and beg for inclusion into their club. Instead he promised to destroy their club.

      Having spent the majority of my life in the very industry that PDJT did makes me hold my head up a little higher especially since the industry has been decimated by Illegal Aliens.
      President Trump gets it, he’s seen what Illegal Immigration has done to the industry he loves and that native Americans are now loathe to go into an industry where the wages have been depressed for over thirty years. I can attest to this first hand and I can also say that the labor coming from south of our border cannot hold a candle to the craftsmen that plied the trades prior to the nineties.

      All that being said, I’ve been following Trump since the eighties and have read everything he’s written and every rag that was in the grocery store check out line so nothing surprises me 1) what Trump will say or has said and 2) what the media is going to write about it. Doesn’t matter, we have a country to save and Trump is the “Only One” who gets it!

      Great post and welcome! We can always use one more aboard the MAGA Express. I don’t agree that DJT was motivated primarily by ego, at least to a large degree. However, it is obvious he has an ego, as all people must who have accomplished so much.

      I’ve never met the man as you have, but watching interviews and speeches by him through the years, one can plainly see that he has cared deeply for both America and the average working person for a long time. He has been speaking to the same themes he set about in his campaign for 30 years.

      I truly believe his primary motivation was a belief that America was finally at the precipice, and knew that a traditional politician could never have the fortitude to do what it takes to pull it back onto solid ground. So thankful for our POTUS.

      Thank you for your support of our President, your endorsement of his actions and abilities, and the time you took to share your insight with us.

      I am almost as old as President Trump, never met him, and have never met any of his family. Yet, from the time he declared his candidacy—with such heart and courage—I have been his whole hearted supporter.

      Time has proven the trustworthiness of the man.

      To me, Donald Trump is an inspiring example of Christianity and of the compassion, courage, heart, and wisdom imparted by God to those who love Him.

      I know that President Trump is not perfect, but I have not seen very many people who try so hard to do—and not just say—the right thing. This matters to me.

      When I read your post I thought that perhaps our President has come to have an attitude like Paul, who counted all of his status and accomplishments as nothing compared to his knowledge of and relationship with Christ.

      I truly belleve that Donald Trump loves and honors God and was chosen by Him and was gifted and annointed with the abilities to lead our nation in this most desperate and troubled time.

      Many of us realize at the end of our lives that we will leave temporal goods and accomplishments behind. We want to leave gifts of lasting love that impart goodness to those we care about and tombe able to bring a good accounting to our Maker. We realize thwt from whom much is given much is required.

      The way that Donald Trump fulfills his responsibilities with excellence in this matter of living a meaningful life is an inspiration.

      Because of his example, we are stronger, better, willing to work harder and are humbled by our gratitude to God for granting us such a leader for such a time as this.

      I hope you will roll up your sleaves and join ranks with us, the Deplorables, as we get to work in the individual ways we can in the upcoming elections to support our President.

      It is well known that Trump has not been embraced by NY old wealth. There are so many very, very wealthy New Yorkers who also could never be part of that group. While Trump has a well documented rapor with construction workers, I would not say that the Trump base is all construction workers or without education or without top jobs in all fields. I think Trump would have to be very smart indeed to roll out a master plan to fool the opposition Dem party, so elite, well educated and well connected, every step of the way in the Russia collusion story. Democrat overreach and mismanagement has been their own flaw, and is but one major reason for opposition to them. Their stunning misuse of IT has made them look like total fools, worse than they could make Trump appear to be by a long shot. They are to blame for their Russia mishandling. I see their problems as more of their own doing than a Trump trap.

      Fascinating account, and tallies with conclusions I came to during the campaign after initially discounting Donald Trump, about whom I knew practically nothing, as an ignorant, blustering buffoon. What changed my mind was a link to his testimony in 2005 before a Senate Committee investigating the UN Building renovation boondoggle. I realized then that not only did Mr Trump know more than the supposed ‘movers and shakers’ in the City, he was a man who could relate to the guys who worked for him in a way that none of the other candidates could, because he spoke their language. And that carried him through the Heartland right into the Presidency, as I suspected it might. I wrote about it here:

      walkingcreekworld.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/trumped-by-the-trump/

      I am not convinced he has an overarching plan to deal with the fake ‘collusion’ Conspiracy to derail his Presidency, but it is unravelling to the point where he might be able to tear it apart. The forces arrayed against him are legion, comprising most of the unelected Statist bureaucracy, its leadership, and its supporters in the business and media establishments. A lot will depend on whether Mr Trump can marshal enough of his own people to defend against these forces. The barricades may not extend beyond the White House at this point, but he does have his fans and supporters in the Heartland who can strike fear and loathing into the hearts of the Statists. /LEJ

    If the Dossier was used to get FISA warrant…this whole fiasco should be null and void…I keep hearing Mueller will try to trip President Trump up…if the man has broken the law that’s one thing but come on if you have to trip him up something’s wrong.

    Did you all see the video from yesterday of Matt Gaetz and Chris Cuomo? Cuomo is very Strzok-like in his narcissism. Unable to win any arguments against Gaetz about substantive issues, Cuomo feigns religious offense.

      Thanks for posting that video. Interesting dialogue. For those of you curious about RR and Meuller listen to Gaetz toward the end. They’re both in on this not that it matters anymore because the SC has been effectively neutered.

      I’ve thought the chief purpose of the SC, their best chance to get rid of Trump, was to hooe Trump fired all of them from day one. It kind of makes sense now when you see the Stroznk text “there’s no there there.” He knew they had nothing but if they could get Trump to impulsively shut this dog n pony show down it would provide a lot of ammo to anti Trump forces. I am guilty of wanting Trump to shut it down. Glad he didn’t do it.

        I have always believed that the Special Counsel appointment was a setup–but President Trump knew it, as well. He had decided from day one, I believe, to let it play itself out; he was aware of high-level DOJ and FBI corruption–although its extent may have surprised him–and knew that even an investigation designed specifically to destroy him would inevitably reveal it.

      Thanks for posting. Gaetz is great; articulate and unruffled. A good spokesperson. I’m glad he is a white hat. Isn’t Cuomo hard to take. Punch appeal.

    I believe that when all is said and done on this entire Circus, if HRC, Susan Rice, Susan Powell, Ben Rhoades, Huma, Weiner, Strohk, Page, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Priestap, Simpson, Jacoby, Ohr’s, and the rest of the Kabuki theater are not in prison then America will be in an uproar.

    America NEEDS to see justice restored. What this entails to me is that when an HRC or Navysquid, who has the same clearances – albeit different read on programs, were to divulge Secret or TS or TS/SCI, which she has, then the LAW should apply to both of us equally. THIS is what makes me and the rest of America upset with what we are now (or suspected for a decade or more) learning about our system of “justice”.

    I do NOT want to see just the low-level people such as Page, Strohk, Simpson, Jacoby’s arrested. No. If crimes were committed then those people, whomever they may be, need to be sentenced FULLY as well!! We want our country back and justice restored.

        Take heart.

        What has happened is truly foul.

        Trump is being bombarded from all sides with all the usual excuses. “It will undermine confidence in our agencies”, “It would undermine our relationship with foreign intelligence agencies”, “It’s just a few bad apples, you don’t need to throw the baby out with the bath water”.

        Crazed Schumer has even threatened: “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you”.

        Know Trump. Know what he is going to say.

        litenmaus…I know his ranking having been in these circles…however, my greater meaning is do you think the guy or gal in Knoxville, TN or Dayton, OH is going to know who Peter Strozk is when he is arrested? They won’t, which goes to my point of the people who are behind all of this are the one’s that we need to see in orange. Comey, HRC, etc…and deservedly so.

      Navy Squid you have to understand the only way you’re going to get a HRC type on the menu is if you catch her with knife in hand sitting on the corpse holding the severed head with multiple eye witnesses of the act that was caught live on camera by several different video feeds. Anything less runs a certain unnecessary risk to prove a point.

      Every day HRC, Obama, etc wake up look in the mirror and realize how close they were to securing America’s future with leftism but knowing that they failed is a great day. Watching the Trumpster work his magic every day and MAGA Agenda grow stronger has gotta be like a death sentence to O. And that in itself is a beautiful thing.

      I went back and found the chan posting from an anon who claimed Strzok was a CIA document guy.

      “They were never in a relationship. She was his point person. Their comms cover was a relationship so if ever exposed, could be blamed and positioned legally as negligent with classified/sensitive info, but not reckless.

      Happens all the time with contracted spooks. You all keep missing what I’ve said since the beginning. Strzok is NOT FBI. He is only being positioned as FBI because he was employed by the FBI UNDER CONTRACT. He is a literal, physical example of an actual spook, or shadow l, deep state operative, whatever you choose call it.

      I don’t know who his actual employer at the time the FBI contracted him. He could’ve been independent, or ran 1099’s from FBI through CrowdStrike, MI6, etc. but this is why you can’t find anything on him and this is why they need you to believe he’s FBI and not to dig deeper. If you did, you could probably tie him to Steele and CrowdStrike direct. Strzok helped create the dossier for CrowdStrike. He helped create and assemble half the docs that filled the fake “guccifer 2.0” files “hacked”, Awan helped aggregate the rest with him. Strzok and Awan are the fake guccifer 2.0. Trust me.”

      I have said it before, and I will say it again. I take the chan boards with a grain of salt, but it is something to ponder. The anon said the more you dig into Strzok the more you find. I am not sure if anyone has discussed his wife, but I guess she was a Hillary supporter and got a promotion at a very interesting time.

    When Joe DiGenova talked last week about ‘denial of civil rights,’ he clearly was laying the foundation for the comments made by Rep. Gaetz, exactly as specified by the lead paragraph by Sundance, above. This will be the first charge brought against the cabal, because it can be so easily proved by what Congress has in it’s hands. This is also why the Mueller investigation is D.O.A., because members of the cabal were also players in the Mueller investigation. The conspiracy is to deny Donald Trump his constitutional right to serve the people in the Office that the people elected him to. In other words, a coup d’etat!

    Just FYI FBI Strozks wife Melissa Hoffman has had two major SEC cases overturned major cases where FBI agents lied intentionally and she did too. Unsurprisingly she was promoted flor this behavior. Interestingly one of these high profile cases she worked in coordination with Trump hater Preet Bhara who’s currently going after Trump for financial crimes…..the swamp is deep.

        Smells like disinfo to me. I’m taking it with a BAG of salt. They should be dumping TONS of garbage right now, mostly because I’m nailing their Harvard girl who links Loretta into the scam, and is probably herself mixed up with Crowdstrike and all that junk, through her totally bogus cyber gig. Follow the money – she’s money and elite, NYT wedding.

        Don’t look for an easy path linking this to CIA – you’ll never get in. Nail ’em out in the open at DOJ. CIA is involved here, I’m sure – but don’t accept their disinfo, which you’ll have to wade through MOUNTAINS of to find one truth. If they say Strzok, it’s Page. Or even more likely Trisha as a covert. Too bad – she shouldn’t have let Hillary off. She blew her cover – not us.

  19. I am still HIGHLY suspicious of Matt Gaetz! Why is this new Congressman getting so very much air time??!!?? I do not trust him at all, at all! His face alone makes me suspicious – small eyes, set too close together; very weak mouth, with what looks like a perpetual snarky grin. Frankly, reminds me of Lyin’ Canadian Ted!

    It is important to note that in his interview with Lou Dobbs, a member of Congress has made a charge which ought to be the headline in every major paper in the United States—but of course it won’t be. Post it everywhere you can:

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL):“I believe there has been a criminal conspiracy underway to discredit and undermine the duly-elected President of the United States. You had a cabal of people who believed it was their job to deprive the American people of the President they elected.”
