Game Over – Judge Jeanine Interview With HPSCI Rep. Chris Stewart…

The game is over. The jig is up. Victory is certain… the trench was ignited… the enemy funneled themselves into the valley… all bait was taken… everything from here on out is simply mopping up the details.  All suspicions confirmed.

Why has Devin Nunes been so confident?  Why did all GOP HPSCI members happily allow the Democrats to create a 10-page narrative?  All questions are answered.

Fughettaboudit.

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence member Chris Stewart appeared on Fox News with Judge Jeanine Pirro, and didn’t want to “make news” or spill the beans, but the unstated, between-the-lines, discussion was as subtle as a brick through a window.  Judge Jeannie has been on the cusp of this for a few weeks.

Listen carefully around 2:30, Judge Jeanine hits the bulls-eye; and listen to how Chris Stewart talks about not wanting to make news and is unsure what he can say on this…

.

Bill Priestap is cooperating.

When you understand how central E.W. “Bill” Priestap was to the entire 2016/2017 ‘Russian Conspiracy Operation‘, the absence of his name, amid all others, created a curiosity.  I wrote a twitter thread about him last year and wrote about him extensively, because it seemed unfathomable his name has not been a part of any of the recent story-lines.

E.W. “Bill” Priestap is the head of the FBI Counterintelligence operation.  He was FBI Agent Peter Strozk’s direct boss.  If anyone in congress really wanted to know if the FBI paid for the Christopher Steele Dossier, Bill Priestap is the guy who would know everything about everything.

FBI Asst. Director in charge of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap was the immediate supervisor of FBI Counterintelligence Deputy Peter Strzok.

Bill Priestap is #1. Before getting demoted Peter Strzok was #2.

The investigation into candidate Donald Trump was a counterintelligence operation. That operation began in July 2016. Bill Priestap would have been in charge of that, along with all other, FBI counterintelligence operations.

FBI Deputy Peter Strzok was specifically in charge of the Trump counterintel op. However, Strzok would be reporting to Bill Priestap on every detail and couldn’t (according to structure anyway) make a move without Priestap approval.

On March 20th 2017 congressional testimony, James Comey was asked why the FBI Director did not inform congressional oversight about the counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016.

FBI Director Comey said he did not tell congressional oversight he was investigating presidential candidate Donald Trump because the Director of Counterintelligence suggested he not do so. *Very important detail.*

I cannot emphasize this enough. *VERY* important detail. Again, notice how Comey doesn’t use Priestap’s actual name, but refers to his position and title. Again, watch [Prompted]

FBI Director James Comey was caught entirely off guard by that first three minutes of that questioning. He simply didn’t anticipate it.

Oversight protocol requires the FBI Director to tell the congressional intelligence “Gang of Eight” of any counterintelligence operations. The Go8 has oversight into these ops at the highest level of classification.  In July 2016 the time the operation began, oversight was the responsibility of this group, the Gang of Eight:

Obviously, based on what we have learned since March 2017, and what has surfaced recently, we can all see why the FBI would want to keep it hidden that they were running a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate.   After all, as FBI Agent Peter Strzok said it in his text messages, it was an “insurance policy”.

REMINDER – FBI Agent Strzok to FBI Attorney Page:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

So there we have FBI Director James Comey telling congress on March 20th, 2017, that the reason he didn’t inform the statutory oversight “Gang of Eight” was because Bill Priestap (Director of Counterintelligence) recommended he didn’t do it.

Apparently, according to Comey, Bill Priestap carries a great deal of influence if he could get his boss to NOT perform a statutory obligation simply by recommending he doesn’t do it.

Then again, Comey’s blame-casting there is really called creating a “fall guy”.  FBI Director James Comey was ducking responsibility in March 2017 by blaming FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap for not informing congress of the operation that began in July 2016. (9 months prior).

At that moment, that very specific moment during that March 20th hearing, anyone who watches these hearings closely could see FBI Director James Comey was attempting to create his own exit from being ensnared in the consequences from the wiretapping and surveillance operation of candidate Trump, President-elect Trump, and eventually President Donald Trump.

In essence, Bill Priestap was James Comey’s fall guy.  We knew it at the time that Bill Priestap would likely see this the same way.  The guy would have too much to lose by allowing James Comey to set him up.

Immediately there was motive for Bill Priestap to flip and become the primary source to reveal the hidden machinations.  Why should he take the fall for the operation when there were multiple people around the upper-levels of leadership who carried out the operation.

Our suspicions were continually confirmed because there was NO MENTION of Bill Priestap in any future revelations of the scheme team, despite his centrality to all of it.

Bill Priestap would have needed to authorize Peter Strzok to engage with Christopher Steele over the “Russian Dosssier”; Bill Priestap would have needed to approve of the underlying investigative process used for both FISA applications (June 2016, and Oct 21st 2016). Bill Priestap would be the person to approve of arranging, paying, or reimbursing, Christopher Steele for the Russian Dossier used in their counterintelligence operation and subsequent FISA application.

Without Bill Priestap involved, approvals, etc. the entire Russian/Trump Counterintelligence operation just doesn’t happen. Heck, James Comey’s own March 20th testimony in that regard is concrete evidence of Priestap’s importance.

Everyone around Bill Priestap, above and below, were caught inside the investigative net.

Above him: James Comey, Andrew McCabe and James Baker.  Below him: Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Jim Rybicki, Trisha Beth Anderson and Mike Kortan.  Parallel to Priestap in main justice his peer John P Carlin resigned, Sally Yates fired, Mary McCord quit, Bruce Ohr was busted twice, and most recently Dave Laufman resigned.  All of them caught in the investigative net…. Only Bill Priestap remained, quietly invisible – still in position.

The reason was obvious.

Likely Bill Priestap made the decision after James Comey’s testimony on March 20th, 2017, when he realized what was coming.  Priestap is well-off financially; he has too much to lose.  He and his wife, Sabina Menschel, live a comfortable life in a $3.8 million DC home; she comes from a family of money.

While ideologically Bill and Sabina are aligned with Clinton support, and their circle of family and friends likely lean toward more liberal friends; no-one in his position would willingly allow themselves to be the scape-goat for the unlawful action that was happening around them.

Bill Priestap had too much to lose… and for what?

With all of that in mind, there is essentially no-way the participating members inside the small group can escape their accountability with Mr. Bill Priestap cooperating with the investigative authorities.

Now it all makes sense.  Devin Nunes interviewed Bill Priestap and Jim Rybicki prior to putting the memo process into place.  Rybicki quit, Priestap went back to work.

(page 5 pdf)

Bill Priestap remains the Asst. FBI Director in charge of counterintelligence operations.

It’s over.

I don’t want to see this guy, or his family, compromised.  This is probably the last I am ever going to write about him unless it’s in the media bloodstream. I can’t fathom the gauntlet of hatred and threats he is likely to face from the media and his former political social network if they recognize what’s going on.  BP is Deep-Throat x infinity… nuf said.

The rest of this entire enterprise is just joyfully dragging out the timing of the investigative releases in order to inflict maximum political pain upon the party of those who will attempt to excuse the inexcusable.

Then comes the OIG Horowitz report.

Then the grand jury empaneled (if not already); and while Democrats attempt to win seats in the 2018 election, arrests and indictments will hit daily headlines.

Oh, lordy…

      My biggest question is WHO can finger Jeh Johnson, John Brennan, and Clapper. I think Page for sure, but how much does Priestap know?

      Now I’m sure DiFi was part of the plot design. I already said that earlier because of the way she was controlling the Gang of 8, and how she leaked that Fusion stuff to warn witnesses. But after seeing her Muh Russia show trial which implicates the heads of DHS and CIA, it’s clear she is a pure top small group plotter who was privy to the big picture.

    Many K-12 teachers (myself included) use a backwards design method when creating a unit lesson plan. You start at the end by identifying what students need to know- then you plot a sequence of lessons to reach that end.

    First, you explain the ‘big picture’ (Obama wire-tapped Trump and his campaign). Then, you ‘activate prior knowledge’ and discuss with students what they already know before introducing the new information (Snowden/Wikileaks revealed that the government spies on American citizens). Each day, as you present new information, you connect it to what they already know including the information from each previous lesson. Gradually, you build the foundation to arrive at the ‘big picture’.

    The strategy we are witnessing is a carefully crafted lesson plan. To be successful, it can move only at a pace that ensures all previous information has been retained before adding new revelations. We become impatient since we already know the path to the big picture— (We;ve taken this class here at the Treehouse with our teacher, Sundance)

    We have to keep in mind that class is in session for the public and we have to be absolutely certain that they (the public) will pass the final exam.

          Teachers’ unions are a cesspool in the swamp. They are owned by corporations like Pearson who write the textbooks AND the standardized tests mandated by No Child Left Behind.

          Currently, Google is engaged in a take-over of the public education system. The goal is to eliminate teachers and indoctrinate kids via computer platforms. Each student at my school is issued a chromebook and content is deliverd through a platform designed and engineered by Mark Zuckerberg.

          I deleted and removed EVERYTHING pre-loaded into my curriculum as did many teachers at my school. For example, last year, I replaced a Howard Zinn video with one from Prager U in the U.S. History course.

          A growing majority of teachers refuse to surrender and continue to teach “the old-fashioned way” and those that initially surrendered are increasingly manning battle stations and fighting back.

        No truer statement could be made, soronme.

        People will never be free as long as the commie NWO isn’t taken down from tip to root. All of it/them! It’s not just American’s freedom it’s the entire world’s freedom. The despots who survived WWII infiltrated governments across the world with their ultimate takeover being the U.S. government. Their wet dream of world domination has been in play for generations and they knew they were only one election away from realizing their power grab.

        To understand and then embrace the breadth of the commie leadership one must look at family trees, as many here continue to do. This world domination crap is a generational family business. It’s why few on the left and center R’s rarely retire their political seats – national, state and local. It’s why so many have law degrees from so-called Ivy League universities. It’s why these mutts then join CFR, so they can be protected, trained and then serve in key governmental positions over and over again. They have created an entirely separate governing society from the rest of us and they’ve done so by betraying and stealing from all of us. It’s what parasites do.

        Maybe Bill Preistap isn’t a parasite. Maybe he’s just a fella who carries out the orders of the Commander in Chief. Maybe he’s a fella who had had enough of the Zero lawless business model he was ordered to carry out. Maybe he waited with bated breath, like Rogers, for his new CiC to be sworn in. Maybe when the CiC was sworn in Priestap let the ‘insurance policy’ play out all the while doing what he needed to do to ensure its ultimate demise.

        There is little doubt in my mind that many of these FBI/DOJ players were turned and drank the kool-aid. And there is little doubt in my mind that many did not. Here’s to hoping Priestap outsmarted all of them, including the arrogant Zero.

      I agree, don’t count your chickens until they hatch. Exhibit A:

      In 2013, the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) revealed that it had selected political groups applying for tax-exempt status for intensive scrutiny based on their names or political themes. This led to wide condemnation of the agency and triggered several investigations, including a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) criminal probe ordered by United States Attorney General Eric Holder.

      In October 2017, subject to judicial approval, the Trump Administration agreed to settle a lawsuit filed on behalf of more than 400 conservative nonprofit groups who claimed that they had been discriminated against by the Internal Revenue Service. The settlement includes an apology from the IRS and a monetary portion characterized by an attorney for the plaintiffs as “very substantial.”

      Fines and an apology… wow…

      This will drag out forever. No one is going to jail. This will be useful in the midterms for the Reps and maybe even into 2020. Just as reform after COINTELPRO simply led to the affected government agencies finding ways around it, people within agencies exposed in this matter will simply be far more careful in the future.

            As is often said, the Clinton Cartel has to be dismantled like the mafia, EXCEPT it’s vastly more interwoven into our entire government system.

            This is exceedingly complicated. It’s not a simple crime/punishment (which would be much closer to the mafia.) It’s mafia X 1000– mafia + much of the government of the most powerful country in the world. It’s going to be somewhat tricky to take these people down.

        If it is true what people like Newt say about Sessions, that is, that AG Session is a good guy and a man of principles, who has had a good performance record in Alabama and so forth, I find it very interesting that he is playing the role he appears to be playing.

        If I were a black hat and suddenly have a boss like Sessions whose reputation is what it is, I’d be extremely suspicious of him. I wouldn’t trust him at all. I would not even befriend him because I’d be afraid he might catch me in some inconsistency and nail me. So, right away, his strategy to play lax and be inconsistent and uninterested in taking assertive action against the players in his department who are neck-deep in shady deals/actions, makes him to stick out like a sore thumb. It appears to be a undeniably obvious strategy.

        The other side of this strategy appears to be, to those of us who like Newt are asking why the AG is not taking action, an inconsistent strategy which also seems too obvious. I think that the most condemning thing he has said about his department is that no agency/department is perfect. It just sounded perfunctory. Not much force behind it.

        Is is credible that after a short amount of time as AG, recused from the corruption case of the century, AG Sessions is fooling the black hats? OR…
        Is the strategy not to show the hand he is putting together. To keep things under key. To build a case so tight that any future objections may meet with the solid wall of truth??? Is his strategy to surprise everybody and bring down the hammer of his authority with such ferocity none of the suspects/guilty will have an adequate response?

        If this is his strategy, and if it plays out the way he intends, then the guy is a beast! Much respect for him. Time will tell. I’m until then withholding full and final judgment.

      How do you know what Sessions is or isn’t doing? Unlike Comey, Sessions does not publicly announce on-going criminal investigations. It would be fool hardy for Sessions to announce an open criminal investigation.

      AS to investigations of Comey, all the DOJ officials who allegedly interfered in the Presidential election, transition & administration, Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for classified material etc –

      Such investigations should not be completed before the DOJ/OIG completes their investigation & a follow-up on the OIG’s report on how the FBI, et al handled those investigations .

      Going for indictments without obtaining all the facts as possible knowing if misdeeds were done, & if done, who all were involved in this activity & how, & prepared for any possible rebuttals by defense, could result in persons who committed misdeeds in the prior investigations to get away with it – especially since this case would likely be prosecuted in D.C. and/or to convince the public.

      They have to throw so much stuff on the wall that some of it has gotta stick.

      We get this one last shot at Hillary, Comey, et al (on the current allegations). They have to get it right this time.

  7. If this isn’t “game over” for the side of busting this case wide open, then we can abandon all hope for justice in America. It is generally said that all forms of socialism lead to communism in the end. If this doesn’t tip the scales back in favor of truth and justice, we may very well see all masks dropped to reveal progressivism for what it is: communism.

    Keeping in mind the truism that most of those who enable communism are not communists, just “useful tools”, it will be interesting to see how long it takes for the communists round up all of the gays, feminists, SJWs, academics, and the rest to be lumped in with the usual Jews, Christians and other non-atheists on their way to the gulags.

Even Trump participated in the cram down of that spending bill while simultaneously taking off of the table as a GOP campaign issue for 2018. Just as Ryan was out there talking about a return to regular order, he goes Pelosi with a cram down of a bill no one had time to read.

        And with Trump boasting about his expanded DACA amnesty plans in the SOTU address, I’m not feeling so sanguine about “our side” winning in November.

        Next up, comprehensive immigration and absolutely no one is even talking about the wall right now in DC. Trump may very well have blown up his base.

        If Trump has taken us past the tipping point, having all of those guns won’t matter if we aren’t will to die in a fight for freedom. The communists have taken over every important institution in this country without firing a shot. That doesn’t mean that with control of the government and military, they won’t shoot people. After all, the 20th century witnessed more humans killed than in all wars before combined. And more died at the hands of their own government than their enemies’ hands. Try saying that in public and see what happens.

        We may very well be arriving at the shooting part and I have my doubts about how serious our side is with their tough talk. Let’s hope we don’t have to find out.

    In March 2017, Bill Priestap, the F.B.I.’s chief of counter-intelligence, reportedly warned Kushner that he was among the top intelligence targets worldwide—not only for China, but for every other major spy agency, too. They discussed some of Kushner’s contacts, including Deng Murdoch, whom some U.S. officials suspect has ties to the Chinese government. Kushner, however, was frustrated by the implication. “Why do I have more of a risk of telling her state secrets than anyone else?” Kushner said, according to The New Yorker. “Either I’m qualified to handle state secrets or I’m not qualified to handle state secrets. I think I understand my responsibilities.”

    Isn’t it possible that both the new NSA Director Rogers (Rogers took over April 2, 2014, as director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and head of the U.S. Cyber Command) and new assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division Priestap (named by Comey on December 21, 2015) realized at the same time that they had been set-up?

    Can we at least get him to resign? Do you really think that if this situation comes up again, he won’t do the exact same things and betray us, like he did once and did to his co-workers? I’m little disgusted this morning.

    Ok. I am prepared to get flamed for this opinion but what if?

    What if Comey was not the villain we all want him to be, but was rather attempting to take the ‘high road’ that in essence put him in a no win situation? Let me explain:

    Comey as we all know knew that the DOJ would never prosecute Hillary. They gave immunity out like Halloween candy, they didn’t follow up on anything, and they allowed witnesses to act as attorney’s for each other as the investigation played out. The FIX was in. But Lynch publicly announces before hand as a result of the meeting on the tarmac that she will accept the FBI’s recommendation. Comey has to realize that she has laid this in his lap and that if it ever came to light, and some of it would via FOIA requests, that he would pay a price for it. What would you do?

    Now some of us would climb up on the high horse and resign via the Saturday Night Massacre. But if you do, and you truly want to protect the US, do you do it knowing the MSM will simply kill you off and in 10 days the news cycle will have moved on? Some though would build a wall of protection around them. How? You involve the entire leadership including the investigators themselves into the decision matrix and thus the rank and file now provide some cover. Comey does all of this even to the point of sending via e-mail (obviously captured) the findings for input.

    But Comey never had to come out and make the statements he did about Hillary. Remember at the time, his statements were red meat to the right side of the isle and the Hillary camp was furious. Comey in essence proclaims her guilt in very specific decree, then at the end says no one would prosecute. Have you ever thought about that statement. Who runs the DOJ and who decides on what cases should and should not be prosecuted? POTUS. It is in essence true. The Obama DOJ would not prosecute it, and so Comey laid out for the country the problems associated with Hillary and they are damning and likely cost her the election.

    Worse, Comey opens up the investigation again with the Weiner disclosure and again makes a public announcement about it. Again, an arrow into Clinton’s chances. Reid even wants him fired.

    Very odd behavior for someone wanting to get Hillary into power. Very odd.

          Way upthread is a post by BlackKnightRides which outlines how Priestap was brought into his current role in late December 2015. The gist of the post is that Priestap was being set up by Comey et. al.

          Apparently, there were at that time in late December 2015 some (actually honest) reports that Trump could take the primaries. And at that same time the DNC published its 237-page Donald Trump Report which outlined various attack strategies among other things.

          I add the following to BlackKnightRides’ post:

          On or about that time, or shortly thereafter, auditors at NSA were preparing their examination of unusual database inquiry activity. You reckon the NSA auditors contacted Priestap? Of course they did. At that time, Priestap may have strongly suspected he was being set up. He was also an insurance policy – against disclosure of the existence of what we now call the “small group”.

          We know from text messages that Strzok and Page were not exactly enamored with Priestap. That suggests to me that Priestap might have been deliberately walled off in whole or in part from Fusion GPS, the dossier and other schemes.

          Priestap, long suspecting he was to be a patsy, played along while cooperating with NSA and later President-Elect Trump. Whatever doubts, if any, Priestap had about being set up were 100% erased in March 2017 when Comey threw him under the bus.

          So insofar as Priestap is concerned, I’m willing to cut him some slack at this point. We’ll know soon, won’t we?

            I did not and do not read SD’s comment the same way as you. I am certain that SD does not think we should be commissioning anyone to start on a statute of BP. SD is merely saying, don’t turn the fake media and the dimms loose on BP and give them a chance to destroy a valuable asset to bring them down.

            He has made it much easier for all of them to be brought down. When you are trying to bring down a crime family, you never kick a gift horse to the curb. You don’t make them heroes but you don’t turn them into hostile witnesses and you don’t destroy them as credible witnesses against the bad guys.

            Chill, because we now have this. And BP is the key we need to bring them all down.

            And he will pay a price.

        During the Obama administration, exactly WHO could someone like Priestap have gone to? LLynch of tarmac fame? The IG? Sorry, no IG. Yates had made sure of that. There he was, transferred from NYC, Comey and McCabe his bosses, Strzok keeping him in the dark from below. Who’s to say he was the one who told Comey not to tell Congress? Comey is not exactly the most reliable witness. SOMEBODY put Stepanik (sp) up to asking the question nobody else asked. Who? Furthermore, EVERYONE (including us in the tree) KNEW Hillary would be the Dem nominee — it was her turn — a woman’s “turn” — never mind whether she was up to the job. And EVERYBODY knows how ruthless the Clintons are to people who thwart them. Ask Paula Jones, Billy Dale, Jim MacDougal, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Jim Guy Tucker, etc., etc., etc. It’s easy to be brave with someone else’s life. Priestap — if he is the one giving evidence — deserves a presidential medal. Without him we might not know any of this.

    “Bill Priestap would have been in charge of that [the FBI cointel operation], along with all other, FBI counterintelligence operations.”

    Not necessarily so. Priestap was tapped from the FBI field office in New York to come to DC to head up FBI cointel office, reporting to Andy McCabe and with Strozk as the number two under Priestap. Essentially, he was a lateral hire from outside DC, stepping into a department in DC that had relationships already established. That’s tough to break into if your number two guy, whom you didn’t get to pick, is already pals with your new boss, especially if you discover you’ve fallen into a snake pit. And if your new boss and your number two guy decide you aren’t really part of their little cabal, they might just sideline you altogether. A real deal field agent who can actually shoot probably would not fit well into their little “mean girls” cabal. Oh, you sign the stuff, but you are not let in on all their little intrigues or the “why” behind their actions.

    I still stand with my initial theory:

    Here’s a possible scenario. You’re a straight up Special Agent, with a brilliant career trajectory prosecuting bad guys and terrorists. You’ve risen as you had hoped, and your next logical move would be to go back to DC to head up FBI counterintelligence. One day you get the call. You show up in DC in January, 2016, to take over as head of counterintelligence. But soon it all falls apart.

    Up close Comey turns out to be a real douchebag, and the number two guy under you is an out of control dweeb with James Bond delusions who’s cheating on his wife. He’s running his own renegade operations, and your boss knows all about it and is apparently in on it. Shit. What in the world was I thinking? I was happy in the field office. Now what? Quit and go to work for my wife? Screw that. I’m not flushing my career over these scumbags. I need a rabbi. Where’s Horowitz’ number? Got it.

      Another wild card:
      Suppose Preistap got appointed to the position. Now that he’s
      been at his desk for awhile, he starts noticing how things operate.
      And he considers going to Yates to say something about what he’s
      seeing. As he watches her actions, he realizes that’s useless.

      And Horowitz comes along with his OIG powers. Preistap might
      initially think: “Finally! Maybe they can look into this mess and
      do some house cleaning!”

      And Yates issues her 50 some page justification on how the
      National Security division is “hands off” to the OIG.

      If the Yates letter came AFTER Preistap came onboard,
      then Preistap might come to the conclusion that HE was
      in place to be the designated fall guy, should the need arise.
      Way in advance of Comey opening his mouth to Stephanik.

      Sooo…. it’s possible Preistap might be clean. If he was
      intuitive enough to really begin worrying after Yates erected a
      firewall to investigations with her letter. And, that might have
      been just about the time he started thinking about talking to
      Horowitz. After Trump was elected, and the gang kept moving
      forward, he knew that he had to start talking to Horowitz.

    A fool sat beneath an olive tree
    And a wondrous thought had he,
    So he rose and he told it to the sky,
    And where was I? Behinfd the tree,
    I overheard his reverie.

    “Why be content with an olive when you could have the tree ?
    Why be content to be nothing, when there’s nothing you couldn’t be ?
    Why be contented with one olive tree when you could have the whole olive grove ?
    Why be content with a grove when you could have the world ?”
    The fool stood beneath the olive tree
    “What a wondrous thought” said he
    “But alas, it is very, very deep”
    And so he yawned and went to sleep,
    Because you see, he was a fool!

    Why be content with an olive when you could have the tree?
    That which has lulled you to sleep fool, has awakened me.
    Why should I sigh that my lot is my lot, that I can’t make it anything more,
    When that is a lie, an excuse for a fool to snore.
    I walked from behind the olive tree
    With a wondrous change in me,
    For I walked with my eye upon a Star.
    If you have heard and do not heed
    There is a word for what you are,
    And oh my friend, the word is Fool!

      With so many chances to observe the rabidly insane 20%, I see a lot of unconscious turmoil. The reason is, under the ironclad brainwashing, many of them are otherwise smart and decent people. They have just been conditioned heavily since birth and don’t know how to fight it. Under Trump they are all very uncomfortable and angry. I think they increasingly sense, intuitively, that he is a good man and that their leftist heroes are evil underneath. Serious cognitive dissonance ensues and they get crazy trying to cope. One friend yesterday made a big deal on FaceBook of Pence’s being at the Olympics and “willing to sit next to the NKs when he wasn’t willing to go to a game where the kneelers were just exercising their free speech rights.” The friend failed to notice CNN’s weird worship of NK culture, nor did he consider that Pence’s presence at the Olympics is his job and the game wasn’t. He is just wildly scraping the bottom of the barrel to reaffirm his conditioned belief that the Other Side Is Bad All the Time.

      I’m sure by now that every one of my local 20%-rabid-left have heard about the coup and it is killing them unconsciously. Far from being lo-fos, they are the type who scan everything constantly trying to find crumbs to support their world view, so they must know. They don’t say a word and are uncharacteristically quiet these days. I take it as a good sign. When the dam breaks I hope to be able to provide a little sense in a subtle way… Some may even come out red-pilled!

    Consider this perspective and let me know if I am wrong about my process,

    First these are the real players in the chain of command. These four would know that Carter Page is an undercover agent working for the FBI.
    Lynch AG
    Comey Head FBI
    McCabe #2 at FBI
    Page is the lawyer for McCabe.
    They would let Strozk the super agent in on the secret, later on.

    Now Priestap was new to the job as head of Counter Intelligence, a perfect guy to hide some key information from. Like Carter Page being an undercover agent working for the FBI.

    Peter Strozk is ticked off because he was a super agent and did not get the job as Head of Counter Intelligence. He is ripe for someone like Lisa Page to soothe his feelings and stroke his ego along with other things.

    The top four have been giving a mandate from Hillarry and Obama to make the emails go away along with the secret server.

    So McCabe and Page see the perfect idiot (Strozk) they can manipulate and control to help make this server and email mess go away. I believe McCabe asked Priestap to borrow Stozk for the Hillary investigation. So Lisa Page knows that if these 4 can make this mess with emails and server go away there will be big rewards in it when Hillary is elected. So Lisa Page goes to work on Peter Stroke mission (Pun Intended). McCabe is well aware that Lisa Page is using Stozk like a asset in a spy ring. She works ole Stozk over good, and before long he is altering the FD 302’s. He is getting rid of all kinds of evidence for the Hillary team. All the while he is reporting to Priestap with just enough info not to make Priestap suspicious. So they go to work and pull off the biggest FBI and DOJ cover up in American History, SO THEY THINK. BUT Trump is gaining ground in the election. Uh Oh big trouble in River City for them now. What are they to do?

    Is it Not funny, that they were meeting in McCabe office not Priestap office about all this? Whose SCIF did Strozk texted from? McCabe’s. Now they are really concerned that Trump might be the GOP nominee. So that start working on a contingency plan. I think this were Carter Page gets brought in. Remember Priestap is not high enough up the ladder to know Page is an undercover agent. When it does look like Trump might win, they come up with insurance policy to cover themselves and to hang it on Priestap and take out Donald Trump. If they need a Fisa Title 1 warrant it has to come from Priestap.

    They 4 mentioned above go to work and convince Priestap that Carter Page is actually a Russian Spy in the Trump Campaign and he starts the Process for Title 1 Fisa warrant. He is setting himself up and does not know it YET.

    Then comes the Testimony before Congress when Comey gets caught off guard by a question, and he throws Priestap under the bus real fast. This was their insurance plan I think all along. They had Strozk the patsy being worked on by Lisa Page and they had Priestap getting all the info on Trump and Carter Page and recommending the Title 1 Warrant from Fisa court,

    That is how those 4 above worked with Obama and Hillary, to first make the email and server mess go away and to try and throw Trump out of office to cover all this up.

    I hope you can follow my thinking, but info coming so fast my mind is in overload right now.
    If you think I am wrong let me know, this is how I learn.

      Take a look at this:

      http://intelligencecommunitynews.com/e-w-priestap-named-assistant-director-of-the-fbi-counterintelligence-division/

      FTA: “in 2013, Priestap was named special agent in charge of the Counterintelligence Division in the New York Field Office.”

      Wasn’t Priestap in that post in NY in 2013 when the NY field office was running that flake Carter Page as an undercover FBI employee in their sting of the local NY Russia spy ring? If he is clean, might have all Priestap’s alarms gone off when the FBI named Carter Page as a possible Russian spy in their FISA warrant application? And if he is not clean, was he brought in as a designated patsy from day one in the event everything ever went South? Was BP part of the insurance policy? A liability rider?

        Trapper, I believe BP was brought in to be a fall guy all along, if anything did surface on this cover up. I think that is why super agent Strozk had his feelings hurt, and he needed his ego soothed. Enter Lisa Page to work him over and turn him to an asset. Did I not read somewhere that Lisa Page also was loaned out to the CIA?

          I’m coming to that as well. BP was in the NY FBI field office in 2013 when the FBI was running Carter Page as an undercover FBI employee. IN fact, he headed the NY counterintel office It was a good bust, apparently, that led to 2 real Russian spy/diplomats being expelled and one chump going to prison. If BP is straight, might they set him up? And who knows what old scores they might have been trying to settle, or old bad deeds covered up, in the process?

      Johnny: I think your analysis is brilliant. The idea that Lisa Page was a “honey trap” within the FBI to snare Peter Strzok and make him their “cleaner” and “fixer” is very likely. Lisa was completely capable of “doing it for Hillary”. You have clarified and illuminated what seemed to many of us a murky possibility The logical “grammar and syntax” you have employed seem almost unassailable. I hope Peter and Lisa are reading this. One will be even more motivated to “out” the other . And your take on Priestap is just as brilliant – facts are backed by logic to ensure the truth of hypothesis. Thanks! You are truly worthy of our leader Sundance.

          Never shy away from following a trail. You often can’t know it is a dead end until you have reached its end. Then you just backtrack and start over. Oh, and I will say it again, risking beating a dead equus: there are no such things as contradictions. When you think you see a contradiction, it just means one of your assumptions is false.

    What if Comey lied and the FBI DID notify the gang-green of 8 about the investigation? Maybe, g-g8 knew about it all along?

    Maybe, Comey lied on orders to protect those above him should any questions arise that might implicate the bigger fish?

    Maybe, BP wasn’t working with the white hats? Maybe, because of Comey’s testimony, the congressional committees didn’t call him to testify (in public) and didn’t bringing much attention to him because, as Sundance states, he’d be the guy that would have known all and would been able to spill the beans on the g-g8? They simply couldn’t have that now could they….

    I take exception to the idea that the country could not take the prosecution of the Clintons and Obama so therefore only—maybe—underlings will face justice. I do not disagree with letting a Grand Jury decide and focusing on 2018, but I will continue to press for justice.

    A huge portion of our country needs an attitude adjustment. They have been so poisoned by the lying indoctrination of the left that they cannot properly think, reason, understand, or even recognize the truth.

    And some people know the truth but continue to celebrate, enable, and create ever greater deception because there have been no consequences for these behaviors—only rewards.

    The country needs to be able to focus on the truth. How do we wake them up? We have to get their attention. They may need to be shaken. Shouting does not always work.

    They may need the shock of seeing the law enforced without regard to status, gender, or race to recognize the fact that they have been lied to and used. It will help give them clear identification of the liars. An appropriate application of the law will foster respect for the rule of law and give many a chance to make truly informed choices going forward.

    And then there is the fact that the other side had no regard for the suffering of the country as they tried to impeach the President and destroy even his children (this was incredibly stupid).

    Think, They have broken laws and destroyed lives because they have been able to get away with these things and even enjoy the support of many in this country and abroad. They will not stop unless they are stopped and I believe that we must use all of the tools legally available to us to do this.
