Now It All Starts Making Sense – Deep State “Fixer”: Henry John Kerner, The Cover-Up Expert….

Years of questions about how so many DC scandals never ended up with any accountability are now slowly beginning to make sense.  Henry Kerner is a missing piece of a very frustrating puzzle…

Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, we now find a name at the very heart of some of the most controversial investigative collapses in modern political history.

The same John McCain staffer who told the IRS to weaponize their database to target Tea Party groups, was intimately involved in Fast-and-Furious, Benghazi, IRS and now -under the Trump administration- “Spygate”.

If you wanted to control or cover-up a DC scandal where would you need to be?  What position(s) would you need to control?  A) the witnesses, and the investigators.  In essence, deep inside the agencies or committees doing the investigation.  That’s exactly the functionality where Henry John Kerner comes in.

Yesterday it was revealed that Henry J Kerner (Henry Kerner), as a former McCain senior staff official, was part of a bipartisan DC team who constructed the IRS weaponization program to target the Tea Party.  That’s bad enough.  However, a little more digging, you’re not going to believe this: the same guy who was attached to the prior investigations, is now in charge of all DC “corruption” and “whistle-blowing” cases, including the current FBI and DOJ corruption.

Henry Kerner is Special Counsel in charge of all “whistle-blowing” witnesses and cases of government corruption.  Henry Kerner controls the events as the lead official, the Special Counsel in charge of the Office of Special Counsel; and he is in the position to manipulate/control any investigative outcome.

But wait, historic sunlight makes it much worse.  Consider Kerner’s DC history:

WASHINGTON – Mr. Kerner graduated from Harvard Law School and spent nearly 20 years working as a career prosecutor in California.

After law school, he joined the staff of the House Oversight Committee, under Chairman Darrell Issa, the chief investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives.

Under Chairman Issa, and later, Chairman Chaffetz, he led investigations of the Federal bureaucracy and fought on behalf of whistleblowers to protect American taxpayers.

Mr. Kerner was the Staff Director under Ranking Member Sen. John McCain of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, the lead investigative committee of Congress.

He then became a Vice President at Cause of Action, a nonpartisan oversight group committed to exposing waste, fraud and abuse in the Federal Government and which has worked with whistleblower and good government groups throughout the country.  (link)

Now a whole bunch of things begin to make sense. From his CV summary Henry Kerner would have been in position to influence: Fast-n-furious scandal (Issa), IRS scandal (Chaffetz), Benghazi (Chaffetz, Gowdy, McCain); and now in his position in charge of the entire Office of Special Counsel he would have influence and control over Spygate etc.

Seriously, think about this example.

On April 30, 2013 – Henry Kerner is participating in a meeting with IRS officials about how to best weaponize their agency against voters:

“Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.”   (link)

On September 5, 2014 – Henry Kerner the lead investigative agent who published a report on the investigation into that IRS weaponization (Research via War Economy):

(Link to PDF)

Imagine investigating yourself. That’s exactly what Kerner was doing as a member of the Permanent Subcommittee On Investigations.

And now Henry Kerner is in charge of all investigations of fraud and abuse in government, and the outcomes of whistleblowers?

No wonder the Deep State feels empowered.  With DC control agents ensuring the corruption and gross misconduct remains hidden, there’s not much fear of getting caught.

      Three people are vying for an executive position. An engineer, a marketer and a lawyer.
      There’s one last interview by the CEO.

      One question: “What is 2 plus 2?”

      The engineer states that while untrained people would say 4, in real life these numbers
      would have noise, distributions and ranges, not simple integers, so the answer is 4,
      plus or minus the range on each number. “Very precise” the CEO says.

      The marketer states that mere linear thinkers would say 4, but that more creative types
      would consider 22 to be just as valid. “Very insightful” says the CEO.

      The lawyer enters, closes the door and curtains, unplugs the phone and intercom,
      turns on a radio loudly, approaches the CEO and says quietly “What do you NEED it to be?”

      The marketer and the engineer were not called back.

If you recall, DJT announced a possible run against Obama early in 2008 with the Birth Certificate thing. When that failed to gain traction, Trump just backed off and let the Deep State steamroll all that were involved at the time. ValJar was the real controller of the Admin and is still living in the Obama Estate in DC as we speak… What is she doing now?

    Here’s a link to the Office of Special Counsel’s HAtch Act Investigation of Kellyanne Conway.

    FTA: WASHINGTON, D.C./March 6, 2018 – The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) today sent an investigative report to President Donald Trump finding that Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act in two television interviews. According to the report, in both instances, Conway appeared in her official capacity. In the first interview, Conway advocated against one Senate candidate and gave an implied endorsement of another candidate. In the second interview, she advocated for the defeat of one Senate candidate and the election of another candidate. Both instances constituted prohibited political activity under the Hatch Act and occurred after Conway received significant training on Hatch Act prohibitions, according to the report.

    OSC submitted the report to the President for appropriate disciplinary action. The report states that OSC gave Conway the opportunity to respond to the allegations during the OSC investigation and in response to the completed report and that she did not respond. The Office of White House Counsel provided brief explanations of Conway’s statements. The report includes and analyzes those explanations.

        ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency.

        OSC’s primary mission is to safeguard the mer​it system by protecting federal employees and applicants from prohibited personnel practices, especially reprisal for whistleblowing. For a description of prohibited personnel practices (PPPs), click here.​​​”

    The OSC has very strict guidelines re: federal employees using the social media, Twitter, etc., with any political logos, photos, etc. Wonder if that DoJ paralegal or Stzrok/Page, etc etc. violated this?

    Bet the did!!

    I guess if I tweeted I could just copy the tweet link and submit a complaint via the link on the OSC site. Gee. They make it sound so easy.

    “OSC Updates Hatch Act Guidance for Social Media”

    FTA: The Hatch Act limits certain political activities of federal employees. Under the Hatch Act, “political activity” refers to any activity directed at the success or failure of a political party or partisan political group (collectively referred to as “partisan groups”), or candidate in a partisan race. Given the unique challenges social media poses to federal employees, OSC crafted guidance to help federal employees understand what is and is not allowed under the Hatch Act. Generally, federal employees can avoid violating the Hatch Act if they (1) do not engage in political activity while on duty or in the workplace; (2) do not engage in political activity in an official capacity at any time; and (3) do not solicit or receive political contributions at any time.

    Federal employees may display campaign logos or candidate photographs as their profile pictures on their personal Facebook or Twitter accounts. However, because a profile picture accompanies most actions on social media, employees would not be permitted, while on duty or in the workplace, to post, “share,” “tweet,” or “retweet” any items on Facebook or Twitter, since each such action would show their support for a partisan group or candidate in a partisan race, even if the content of the action is not about those entities.

And he does this by NEVER talking down to his audience or being abusive (as is the case with certain talk radio hosts) to his readers and loyal followers. Speaking of which, the comments on these articles are filled with intelligent and interesting information and it never fails that by following the links that are provided by other readers, I am able to amass an enormous amount of information on the subjects that Sundance tells us about.

    The last few days, it seems that Sundance has once again outdone himself. One amazing article after another with no end in sight. We are so lucky to have him on our side and frankly, I don’t know what we’d do without him.

    The description makes it sound like Issa hired him into the committee. I mean the question of who actually hired this guy is the most important one, correct?

    I always thought that my old Congressman Issa was a liar and cheat, and I think this just about confirms it, unless Issa can put distance between this guy first joining the Congressional committee(s) and that hiring decision. The rest of the Congressmen involved might have accepted Issa’s vouchsafe, and continued Kerner in his role from investigative committee to committee, without understanding that Issa had planted a snake in the home grass.

    Issa is the suspicious one here, just like McCain is the likely hiring authority on the Senate side.
