        “Should Deep State Criminals Face Military Tribunals?” is the current post on howtobeyourowndetective.com

        The author argues the federal court system, like DC in 1865, or Mormon courts in Utah Territory, are too corrupt for justice, and other means are necessary.

        Thought provoking column that supplements the greatness Sundance and Co. present here every day.

No matter how many facts and truths are thrown in their faces, they are paid to duck, bob and weave; then immediately change subject, cut to commercial, or “black-out” with a technical problem. If they cannot follow this script , gulp…get ready to be reading the weather map in some remote market area. Sunday political interviewers are experts in this fancy politibabble.

      Protecting REAL sources and methods (of REAL intelligence) is important. You don’t want to lose a source (or access) to real intelligence for a lot of reasons – including the chilling effect on recruiting future assets.

      There has been nothing here (even hinted at) that should give anyone pause on declassification. As many have noted, everything we’ve seen that has been ‘declassified’ had been classified strictly in order to protect themselves from embarrassment (and prosecution!!!).

      And while it seems to be an object of faith, I still haven’t seen any proof that Steele spoke to any Russian sources for his fabrication – he could have created the whole thing in his parent’s basement for all I’ve been able to find.

        A presidential campaign was being spied on. How could any REAL intelligence or methods have been used that need to be protected? Protecting a Russian source? Isn’t that a contradiction of the whole thing?

          Agreed. There really shouldn’t be any REAL intelligence.

          Generically, protecting sources and methods is a different question, though
          To my mind, the only possible reason anyone might need to protect a source/method, including a Russian source (we do/did have them – read “The Billion Dollar Spy” – which highlights another FBI failure, BTW) would be if a valuable source of REAL intel heard something (firsthand) that when passed on to us, could point back to them.

          And NO, I don’t think any of that is the case here. I’m the person that wants to see proof that Steele spoke to Russians while creating his dossier.

        Everyone seem to keep wanting the president to act expediently. I think in a world where he wouldn’t end up getting impeached for trying to open up the truth by presidential fiat, that would be the best thing. But we’re talking about RINOs who would absolutely support impeaching the president for “recklessly declassifying sensitive information” at the very same moment he ordered things to be declassified.

        And let’s not forget that opening things up that way would likely harm the ability to effectively prosecute those criminals responsible for all of this.

        The best plan is the long game. We all want to see the end of this whole mess but it will definitely come. There’s not stopping the momentum. What’s more, all of this is absolutely going to keep Democrats from taking any sort of majority and will likely improve the Republican majority. And with the promises of so many retiring? Well, let’s hope the fresh new blood will be less corrupt as the old and entrenched blood clots we have now.

          Meadows should be outraged, and he isn’t. His wishy-washy blurb on DACA is not good enough. DACA is TOTALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL, he should have been against any talk of citizenship for illegals. The MOST DACAs should be offered is an annually renewable green card, if they qualify. POTUS was clear during the campaign. If illegals wish to gain citizenship, they should leave, then get in line to emigrate.

          Get a spine, Mr. Meadows – knowing how many law abiding European professionals with children (escaping 3rd. world radical islamists) wait year after year to immigrate. And, the issue of separating children at the border is political tomfoolery. Does he know the kidnapping of children to affect these illegals’ chances of obtaining asylu. m is running at around 70%?

          I have to agree that next to Otaiba’s Burr and Open borders Tillis, Mr. Meadows looks reasonably good.

      BINGO! If the ultimate goal was to have Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio go up against HRC, than there is more than a good chance that they would have been aware of what was happening. This dates all the way back to 2015. It didn’t start in 2016. They could not have DJT become the President of the USA 🇺🇸. He could singlehandedly destroy everything they were after. NWO was real! HRC or Jeb/Rubio would have delivered us to the finish line 🏁.

      Mitch McConnell knew about the plan as a member of the Gang of 8. The only member that wasn’t informed was Rep. Devin Nunes. Our President is aware of the RINOs shenanigans. He probably whispered in Mitch’s ear. I truly believe he used that leverage to get the MORONS to pass his Tax Reform Bill. The RINOs knew that passing that Bill would be a death 💀 blow to trade negotiations.

      I also think it is the reason Mitch is pushing Appellate and District Nominees through in record pace. I don’t see him running again in 2020. That would be part of the deal.

        Flep, that sounds about right concerning McConnell. Alright, the president knows how to leverage his knowledge of the plot against him. But really, when does a man like Mark Meadows, a white-hat, begin to sound outraged on national TV, when he has a platform. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET GOP MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, for heaven’s sake, to speak up for the truth? He ever so timidly tip-toed up to the point of delicately suggesting the spying began in the White House, not with the FBI. But if this is the energy level of the ardent seekers of what’s behind the redactions, I can only assume we won’t get to the nub of what DOJ was up to before the mid-terms. So demoralizing— sorry.

          Mark Meadows carries the position as Leader of the Freedom Caucus. He has done an incredible job with them in supporting our President. He allows his members to go full tilt when discussing everything to do with Mueller and Muh Russia. Mark Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, Louie Gohmert to name a few. He doesn’t hold them back.

          I also think he realizes that Burr will not run again for his seat in the Senate. I think Mark has his eyes set on not only taking Burr’s seat but also his role on the Gang of 8,

          With al that being said, there is a reason for him to be somewhat guarded. He is a White Hat in my book.

          It is obvious that this is the case – based on the way the media is spinning the Stefan Halper limited hangout. Their swampy DOJ/Deep State sources have whispered as much to them.

          Worse than that, there is some evidence that some of the embedded spies are still in place in the Trump administration.

      Mark Meadows is completely onboard with our President’s proposal for DACA. As a matter of fact, he is actually a big supporter of the Bob Goodlatte Bill which is far less generous than our President’s proposal. He knows that Immigration is the #1 issue for Republicans. It will drive our folks out in record numbers.

      From the article linked above:

      Immigration remains the most important issue to Republican voters, conservatives, and supporters of President Trump, a new poll reveals.

      The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds that a plurality of 41% of Republican voters say immigration is the most pressing issue facing the nation. Meanwhile, 42% of conservatives said the same, while 44% of Trump voters said immigration was the single biggest issue.

      As Breitbart News has reported, likely GOP voters have told pollsters for months that immigration is their biggest priority heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

      Trump, bucking the GOP establishment, has reaffirmed his commitments to cut legal immigration to reduce the burden that American citizens have been hit with for decades due to mass immigration, Breitbart News reported.

      “A [visa] lottery is ridiculous, you know. I mean, they take people from the lottery where you can imagine these countries are not putting their finest in that lottery, so I don’t like the lottery,” Trump said last week.

      “Chain migration is a disaster, and you look at what’s going on where somebody comes in who’s bad and yet they’ll have 24 members of a family, not one of them do you want in this country,” Trump said. “So chain migration is terrible, [visa] lottery is terrible … [and] we have to get rid of catch and release.”

      When Richard Barris from PPD Polling (the best in the business) says California may have a Republican Governor after the November Election, you realize just how MASSIVE Immigration is for Independents as well!

      I said in the daily thread that AG Sessions should have someone in his office over that. He needs to demand his staff comply with Congress’s oversight. His recusal does not abdicate his responsibility to ensure all of his subordinates follow the law. That redaction over the desk was beyond the pale. How would Sessions have reacted as a senator is Obama or Bush’s DOJ had made such a redaction and claimed it was for national security?

      Rosenstein needs to be called on the carpet for that and SOooooo much more.

      I think they leaned more towards Mao than Stalin, but the whole movement has been so Stalinized over the years that it is hard to change. Besides, when you think of spying domestically as a good thing, it is just so hard to constrain yourself.

    They set up Papadopoulos. Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer, and Stephan Halper all used attractive females against Papadopoulos. Mifsud (the woman pretending to be Putin’s niece), Downer (the Australian Erika Thompson), and Halper ( “Azra Turk”, who flirted with Papadopoulos and even tried to visit him in Chicago). No way was that a coincidence. All three men were working from the same playbook. If Mifsud was a Russian spy, as the #Resistance and their friends in the msm like to pretend, Mueller would have charged him. The FBI knew about Mifsud informing Papadopoulos for well over a year before he disappeared. They could have easily arrested him when he spoke at a conference in DC. Instead he was allowed to travel the world, attending major conferences with important diplomats and members of the intelligence community. If he was a Russian spy no way would they let him take pictures with people like Boris Johnson. There is a reason Mueller did not go after him- he was part of the same team as Mueller, call them the Destroy Trump Team. And that means Mueller knows Papadopoulos is a victim of entrapment and doesn’t care- he still prosecuted him and thinks he can get away with it because it was on British soil. We’ll see about that. Nunes really needs to step up his game and President Trump needs to start declassifying documents. The obstruction from the Rosenstein DOJ is completsly out of control.

      Rubio took to the Swamp like he was…’coming home’.

      No training needed.

      Little Marco draped himself in the Tea Party to get elected to the Senate the first time.
      He dropped all vestiges of that cloak when he got to DC.

      Look how he ‘endorsed’ PDJT to get reelected in 2016.
      And now…he is stabbing him in the back at every opportunity.

      Rubio is swamp scum.

    Here’s what’s truly amazing, at least to me. I was at a large gathering of people at a private event in Fremont California yesterday. This topic arose. Most people there were that adamant that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians. They either really believe it, or don’t care if its true or not, as long at it damages this President. They do NOT want to hear any evidence to the contrary no matter how valid it may be or what the source. There’s a whole large segment of people in this country who want Trump convicted of something and they don’t care what. Of course these people are of a liberal or leftist ideology, but what is scary is that they are willing to bend or break the rule of law to advance their political agenda and hatred for Donald Trump. Make no mistake, there are millions of people who will discard any investigation that points to Obama’s involvement or the indictment of these careerist bureaucrats. I’m already hearing the argument that Trump is using the OIG Horowitz and Huber for his own political purposes. The problem for them has NEVER been Comey, Clapper or Brennan….. these people will turn a blind eye to any truth and criminal behavior to advance their own political agenda……… no matter what the law says or who broke it. I never thought I would live long enough to see millions of everyday Americans behave this way.

      Curt, glad we do not live in Fremont, CA but where we live most everyone I know or meet are all for Trump and sick and tired of the democrats running. Since democrats don’t do anything honestly, you can be sure the votes for the top two will all be for their candidates to continue dictatorship in this state. I hope and pray that Travis Allen wins and I appreciate Trump saying Cox because when Trump does that, then that candidate loses and Cox is just another democrat all are power hungry! Travis has a great many on his side due to his visits and conversations with the small and agriculture towns/cities who are sick and tired of the moonbeam and the democrats. We need change here and NOW! Over 1/2 million people and business have left CA and if this continues we will too! Tired of dictating every thing to us and our cities, tired of their thinking and breaking federal laws via sanctuary cities, tired of constantly rising taxes and nothing done but the money “disappears) and CA is in bankruptcy and has no surplus because we know they are liars of the first level. They have taken water away from our farmers resulting in less agriculture here so not a food basket of the world any more, but hey, lying resonates with idiots who vote for them, and that is then sent into the ocean! Yes, many of us want the military here to take over and help us clean up this state and the sooner the better.

    Look at ACTIONS; NUNES, yes. Rubio, NO! Meadows, had me fooled, but no more. MAYBE some in ‘freedom caucus’ are still uncorrupted, but not giving them a free pass, based on anything they SAY.
    Would LOVE to see the list, of all ‘Republican’ congressman/woman, who have already committed to voting to impeach DJT. Probably closely aligns with list Iran threatened to release, of those bribed to ‘support’ jcpoa. (Corker, you litle weasel!).

      THE UNI-PARTY

      “The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”

      Quote from Tragedy and Hope, 1966 by Carroll Quigley, member of Council on Foreign Relations, mentor to Bill Clinton.

      We just never paid attention when they told us their plans…

      THE GLOBALISTS
      The Rockefeller File by Gary Allen
      Published June 28th 1976

      “The master planners devised the strategy of a merger – a Great Merger – among nations.

      But before such a merger can be consummated, and the United States becomes just another province in a New World Order, there must at least be the semblance of parity among the senior partners in the deal. How does one make the nations of the world more nearly equal?

      The Insiders determined that a two-prong approach was needed; use American money and know-how to build up your competitors, while at the same time use every devious strategy you can devise to weaken and impoverish this country. [See Chasing the Dragon: Clinton’s China Policy for how Clinton implemented this plan. ] The goal is not to bankrupt the United States. Rather, it is to reduce our productive might, and therefore our standard of living, to the meager subsistence level of the socialized nations of the world.

      The plan is not to bring the standard of living in less developed countries up to our level, but to bring ours down to meet theirs coming up… It is your standard of living which must be sacrificed on the altar of the New World Order….

      This was validated more recently by Pascal Lamy former World Trade Organization Director-General. He indicates that an European Union like super state has been the goal since the 1930s.
      “The world is headed toward greater degrees of globalization — deeper integration, wider cooperation and greater sharing of responsibilities. To govern this globalized world, writes World Trade Organization Director-General Pascal Lamy, existing institutions will need to be reformed to ensure they work together optimally.” h t t p://www.consiusa.org/allegati/1432198017.pdf

      Pascal Lamy: Whither Globalization?

      In the same way, climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared…
      Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? …

      Countries claim the right to use national resources as they see fit. But the byproduct can be greenhouse gases or disappearing fish stocks or raw material shortages — which impact the interconnected world we share….

      This raises a final challenge: How to provide global leadership? Mobilizing collective purpose is more difficult when we no longer face one common enemy, but thousands of complex problems
      The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed….

      All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s …including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty — rooted in freedom, openness, prosperity and interdependence.

      That would be FDR who agreed to giving up US sovereignty. The same guy who stole the personally owned gold of American citizens and gave it to the corrupt Banksters.

We were just a couple of kids, and voted for Carter because he was a farmer from Outside, GA. I cheered Reagan for defeating the Soviet Union. I gave Reagan a pass on not being as conservative as he should have been; after all, beating the Commie Imperial Muscovites was a very big deal.

        When Bill Clinton (of Outside, AR) accepted the D nomination, he thanked Carroll Quigley with the first breaths out of his mouth. In that instant I innately understood everything we know about our Demonrat opponents now. Fpr so leng we only lost.

    Curt; “Fanatacism consists of redoubling your effort, while forgetting your aim”
    Example: “Accept Jesus Christ as your savior, or I’ll KILL you!”
    Yes, the new testament is just chock full of stories of Jesus slewing those who refused to recognise his divine origin,. …NOT!
    Anyway, behavioral science tells us that when we experiance any strong, emotional responce, the logic part of our brain shuts down.
    So yes, these people feel strong, emotional feeling about DJT; hate, fear.
    Hence, logic takes a holiday, arrest and impeach him for SOMETHING, screw the rule of law.
    Whats that about a splinter in anothers eye, and a log in our own?
    Libs arent THAT hypocritical, they never have supported the rule of law, the Constitution, or Gods law; hey, man! Do hour OWN thing, ya know?
    Let us look in the mirror; WE are the ‘side’ that professes to respect the rule of law, and the Constitution, yet many say, in effect “Screw THAT! I just wanna KILL these barstuds!
    Have US marshals arrest them, send em to gitmo, military tribunals, stand against wall and lead poisoning, or hemp.
    Yes, what a GREAT way to affirm and re-establish the rule of law, and the Constitution!
    Fanatacism consists of redoubling your effort, while forgetting your aim.
    Allowing emotion to over rule logic.
    You dont think DJT is p.o.’d?
    But hes a very STABLE genius: he does not allow emotion to effect his judgement, OR his actions. If we are to support him, should we not try to emulate him? Otherwise, these people you talk about, can say the same thing about us.”I went on this CTH blog the other day, you wouldnt BELIEVE what these people are saying, and believing!

      Dutchman, I have never seen anyone on this site call for beating or killing or otherwise calling for any form of violence against the government who are disobeying the Supreme Law of this land, and their sacred oaths of office. There is nothing illegal about calling for arrests or military tribunals when our elected government ignores all their obligations to We the People. The government is meant to SERVE us, we do not serve them. We have the right of redress in the face of tyranny. Open source facts, logic and observation form the basis of most opinions, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ gives us the strength and hope we need to stand against evil wherever we find it.

    The last part about immigration and DACA and their pathway to citizenship. Let’s imagine all DACA recipients were genuinely brought here as children — a thing I very much doubt. In this country the children of criminals are NOT allowed to benefit from the crimes of their parents. In simple terms, if a parent had stolen something of value and then involved their children by giving them whatever they had stolen, the children do not get to keep it.

    In the case of DACA recipients, they are talking about letting them keep what their parents had stolen and paying them interest on top of it.
