Washington DC Chaff and Countermeasures…

Repost:

A “Countermeasure” is a measure or action taken to counter or offset a preceding one.

Politically speaking, the deployment of countermeasures is a tactic used by professional politicians in Washington DC to counter incoming public inquiry and protect themselves from anger expressed by the electorate.

Weaponized government takes action and creates victims. Beyond the strategy – the countermeasures are politicians assigned a role to control the incoming righteous inquiry from voters who find out about the weaponized or corrupt governmental action.

1.) The electorate become aware of a political issue or action; often illegal.

2.) The electorate become angry.

3.) DC needs to protect itself.

4.) Countermeasures are assigned and deployed to delay, obfuscate and create the illusion of investigation of the illegal governmental action.

5.) Electorate watch.

6.) Investigation goes nowhere.

7.) Countermeasure deployment successful.

Repeat.

Recent and ongoing examples:

The countermeasures are deployed to act as shiny distractions keeping the larger electorate satisfied something is being done. Countermeasures are designed to create investigations that go nowhere.

The goal is not resolution or justice; the goal is to deflect, create distraction and eventually dilute/diminish the outrage over time. Keep kicking the can until it rusts and simply falls apart.

Nothing to see here. Move along, move along now folks.

The political system in Washington DC has become so massive it is now capable of protecting itself. Any attempt to reduce the influence, scope or size of the system is considered a risk. The system is, in essence, protecting itself. Deep State is self-aware.

Political countermeasures are now deployed as human articles of self-preservation.

  1. TRUST in TRUMP.
    • He’s NEVER let us down.
    • He ALWAYS exceeds expectations.

    UNLEASH your IMAGINATION: Multiply Options for Action.

    1. Option: NSA deleted the communications: AFTER transferring copies to HUBER.

    2. Option: Awan struck a plea deal: AFTER sharing the SERVER FILES.

    3. Option: Immunities & Plea Bargains get INVALIDATED.

    4. Option: North Korea shares the Evidence on Clinton Nuclear Giveaway Case.

    5. Option: Russia shares the Evidence on URANIUM ONE for RICO Case.

    6. Option: China shares the Evidence on Democrats’ Foreign Fundraising RICO Case.

    7. Option: Iran shares the Evidence on JCPOA for RICO or Treason Case, including on EU.

    NOTE: President Trump been generating MASSIVE Economic Leverage on the last FOUR.

    • What did Gowdy actually say? He said he wasn’t familiar with that investigation but that he could ‘get familiar with it’.

      With all due respect to Sundance, I don’t see how this counts a ‘countermeasures’.

      The DOJ has been handling the Awan investigation. The Oversight Committee has likely been informed but they would need to request details in order for Gowdy to be familiar with the details. Even then, I suspect, he would have little to say because it is ‘an ongoing investigation’.

      Sundance appears to be assuming malice is at work when Gowdy is simply pleading ignorance and understandably so. The Oversight and Judiciary Committees have been focused on the DOJ/FBI and their handling of the ‘Russian Collusion’ investigation supposedly committed by the Trump campaign.

      The Awan et al investigation is a totally different matter.

I should be able to find it.I know he also held a meeting with Fitton and the reporter for the Daily Caller who’s been working on the story.. Only 3 or 4 Representatives showed up for that meeting. I’m not sure people in Congress really want to know about Imran.

            Oh really, and sorry for my cynicism but what makes you think that? Its done. This is how things are put to sleep. Plea Deal means ‘its done’, its now ‘in camera’, and no one will ever know (the public) if it has any meaning or use or anything. See how that works? You get to ‘think’ it means he’s co-operating with them on a larger issue. Well, what if, you doubted that, and saw it for what it is, a way of hiding things, of putting them to sleep. Done, over. No more questions. Imran was the ringleader, and he has been ‘pardoned’ for all previous ‘non violent crimes’ ever. It does not get more corrupt than that judgment.

            Sounds awfully like what Hillary got, and Comey for that matter. Pardoned for life.

              A plea deal by it’s very nature is a contract of sorts. The perpis given a lighter sentence for his crimes but that only happens if s/he has dirt to deliver on people higher up the criminal chain of command.

              I will wait to see how long it takes from him pleading guilty in a court of law to him actually being sentenced as it will be during this time period that he will be testifying against those perps above him.

              If he does not deliver on his side of the deal, just remember the crime he has pled guilty to has a maximum sentence of 30 years and/or a $1,000,000.00 fine. Rather a steep sentence if he does not deliver what he has promised, also there is nothing stopping the DoJ from reopening any other case against him.

            • The available facts support multiple interpretations. Neither you nor I were privy to anything other than the public pleading. On the basis of that information, Amwan could be a state’s witness.

              Hillary isn’t ‘pardoned’. She’s never been indicted and therefore, could be indicted tomorrow. There doesn’t need to be any new evidence. The investigation can be reopened, the evidence reexamined and, if deemed appropriate, a criminal referral can be made.

              One of the problems of quashing an investigation is that the target never gets a day in court and a decision rendered.

              There is no ‘double jeopardy’ for investigations.

        Pleading ignorance can only be useful if it is indeed chaff or he doesn’t want to reveal that a serious investigation is underway. With Awan’s Recent plea deal my guess is chaff.

        Yeh, like my tarot cards saying – IT WILL RAIN this year… and it rains, and I go – oh wow, see the cards were right. Q was ‘infiltrated’ ages ago, and is now a psy-op geared to drive believers around the bush with ‘false hope’. They are hoping to calm you’all down thinking something has been done – yeh look at all those ‘sealed indictments’… well, truth is they mean nothing other than a country riddled with crime bursting at the seams. There is nothing to say that they are related to these issues. But it makes everyone think ‘something is being done’, and that is simply a red herring deliberately fed to the chooks to keep their eyes off the continued corruption going on right under your nose.

        If you really knew the truth, the treason being done to the people, you would throw down your ‘cue’, and march on the capitol armed with whatever implement at your hands reach, including a fork, to get the only justice possible. They know that, so they keep you entertained with games like ‘Q’.

              Sundance has not focused on the Awan case for reasons known only to Sundance. Moreover, all Sundance has done is suggest that today’s announcement re: the Awan case is DC chaff and countermeasures, but offers no proof, no analysis, and makes no case as to why other alternative theories re: this matter are incorrect.

              For example, Sundance has not attempted to answer the question:

              Why was this case filed as a “bank fraud” case?
              What implications does this have down the road for those involved (including Dem. representatives)?

              These characters think there are 40,000 sealed indictments on Hillary and all of her crew. Mueller and Rosenstein work with Trump against Hillary, and Sessions is the second coming of Oliver Wendell Holmes.

              What they don’t tell you is, Q reported back in November that MS13 killed Seth Rich. Where did Q get that? Well, it had to be GEORGE WEBB, as he reported that back in May-June of 2017, right before Webb shut down the Port of Charleston, South Carolina with the false report of a dirty bomb.

      Instead what we are seeing is a steady stream of people who are ‘resigning’. There may be more vigorous punishments forthcoming, but make no mistake about it, alot of people have been punished.

      I won’t discount that possibility entirely, but I do recall watching that interview, and it was obvious to me what she was talking about.
      I would like to think Gowdy is more up to speed than I am and this topic had been in the press a lot.

      But it’s a possibility, I won’t deny that.

        I happened to be watching Maria’s show that morning.
        And…if memory serves, they had been talking about the “Awan brothers” and that whole case, earlier in the show.

        So when Gowdy had his deer-in-the-headlights moment…I was like “Come on, man”.
        It seemed ridiculous that he wouldn’t know what she was talking about.

        But Doppler is right.
        I just watched that again. Twice.
        And Maria didn’t really identify it very well, to Gowdy.

        He wasn’t in the studio…he was in Capital Rotunda.
        So, I hate to admit it, but it actually *is* possible that he didn’t understand what case she was talking about.

      You know what, Doppler…you’re right.

      I just watched that clip again, a couple of times, and Maria really didn’t identify what she was talking about.

      She was talking in shorthand…probably because earlier in her show, they had been discussing that case…if I am remembering it correctly.

      Gowdy was at the Capital Rotunda.
      It’s possible that he had not been monitoring Maria’s show…and he just walked in for his remote interview, when it was scheduled to begin.

      Maria didn’t even mention “Congressional”…she just said “IT staffers”.

      So as much as I hate to admit it, Doppler, you could be right about Gowdy not making the connection.

        Does it now? Kennedy, 9/11, and untold others for thousands of years prior. Do you read your history on the back of a cornflake packet? Good does not always win – only in comic books actually. It is the survival of the most cunning, narcissistic, psychopathic and powerful in politics and world leadership. Centuries of injustice and cruelty have been done unto others, millions and millions of others, of all races and religions etc etc, Innocents massacred, tortured, raped, murdered with no recompense was ever dished out. But hey, keep reading those packets. We are here today because good has not won. This is the reality of Washington. Dog eat Dog. The only countermeasure to evil is good, but evil knows good only operates within the boundaries of goodness, and it has no boundaries, so can destroy good before it even takes its first breath. The rule of LAW was created to try to regulate this horrific human behavior, but when it is scoffed such as in this case today with Imran Awan, evil wins.

        Now go ahead and spray me with your venom as I know you will. When you pretend that things are not happening it actually offends realists as much as skepticism offends you.

          Maybe it is you that get your history from the back of cereal boxes. There have been many wars that have been fought against evil and the good side won. WWll being the last big war, won by the allies against a very evil regime that was committing genocide against the Jewish people.

          Every time a murderer is brought to justice, it is good triumphing over evil. There will always be evil in the world, it is how it is contained that is the most important factor to look at. It would not be Justice if the mob was allowed to lynch everyone accused of a crime, nor would it be Justice if their was a strata of society that was above the law.

          Taking the Awan case and the just announced plea deal a step at a time, the first impression is that he is to receive a slap on the wrist for not only controlling the Demonrat’s entire IT Network in the Congress but likely to have sold information that was Top Secret and Special Access Information to outside actors who could be viewed as enemies of the USA 🇺🇸.

          Digging a little deeper, one realises that in pleading GUILTY to the crime he has in his plea deal one realises that he must have incredible evidence of wrongdoing by Senators, Congressmen/women and others to have been given this particular deal.

          The sentence specified for the crime he has agreed to plead guilty to has a maximum sentence of 30 years and/or a $1,000,000.00 fine as well as restitution to the harmed victim. The thing to look out for is the length of time taken between him appearing in a court of law and pleading guilty and when he is actually sentenced.

          The longer that period is, the more he is testifying before a Grand Jury spilling all the beans and nuggets of damning information against the Very Congress Critters that employed him without any sort of vetting and allowed him to have complete control of their IT Network. The real crime was committed by these elected officials who did not even care enough to protect the secrets of the USA 🇺🇸 nor their duty to make sure that the citizens of the Great USA were kept safe.

          I believe that the Circus Tent is in the process of being erected and the show that is about to appear in television screens around the world will not be called the Greatest Show on Earth as mere hyperbole!

    Much of the bickering in this comments section may be due to a misinterpretation. Also, Maybe some of the pessimism is deliberately planted to incite divisions in this blog as has been done elsewhere.

    Readers should note that this article is a Repost (and clearly labeled as such at the top) of a Sundance article originally posted on March 21, 2017. Nothing in the article is new today, except the addition of Grassley’s photo in the lineup.

    It’s quite plausible Gowdy wasn’t aware of the details of the DNC server case investigation at that time. Look at the Bartiromo interview – that interview was March 2017, not recently. A lot has been learned in the 15 months since then. But the chaff and countermeasures warning still applies to caution us to use critical thinking skills as news develops every day.

        I cannot find the word “troll” in my post. Didn’t use the word. Troll means something other than what you apparently are defending against. If I must clarify, I would refer to you and the folks you are defending as “Eeyores”; or “glass is half empty” people, pessimists, frequently complaining about what hasn’t been done or happened fast enough to suit them.

        “Trolls” (as I have come to understand) are folks who never have any substantive information or observations to offer; only posting negative, unsupported criticisms and ad hominem attacks against those they want to impugn. CTH occasionally gets a few of those; most Treepers avoid responding them; a few call them out for what they are. Sundance infrequently warns them to cease (whatever meme they are posting) immediately or risk permanent ban. Ad Rem also removes offensive troll posts.

        IMO it is still a bit early to express so much hyperbolic disgust and vitriolic impatience with the current DOJ / FBI investigations and dearth of results witnessed so far. I too am frustrated by the lack of tangible penalties enacted on people whom we believe to be guilty of criminal activities.

        But I also have realized (and learned to not react to) the incredible amount of disinformation and deliberate misinformation that is being promulgated by the majority of the news media. And it seems that MSM propaganda campaign remains very effective just by observing the volume of people who react to it as if it is true, even when they should know better.

        I am not a lawyer but I do understand how long a period of time that much of this DOJ / FBI investigation work requires when every “i” mist be dotted and every “t” crossed for each case in order to withstand the extreme scrutiny that case will receive once litigation begins.

        Finally, since I am not in control nor able to affect any part of this process, I find it very much a waste of energy – mental, emotional, and physical – to get worked up and have to vent frustration or continue to post negative, pessimistic speculation in a forum when that does not lift up anyone else nor contribute to the general factual information base. I realize that there is sometimes truthful but negative political and economic news that should be shared and Sundance usually covers that very well.

      In a way it’s like music: sometimes the silence is more significant than the sound. John Cage took this to an arguably ridiculous extreme in his 4’33” , but works like Copland’s Third Symphony, where a massive cacophonous chord sounds (perhaps indicative of the bomb hitting Hiroshima), followed by silence, then a pastoral theme leading into what is popularly known as “Fanfare for the Common Man”…

      We don’t know what is contained in the silence of those two appendices, although they have been referred to both in footnotes, testimony, and various commentary. Suffice to say, they are most likely damning indeed.

      Add to that the fact that only ONE of the Awan brothers “escaped the chop”, as it were, what about the other two? And what did he give in return for what appears to be a light sentence? Consider that we’re dealing with the ISIS/MB proxy known as ISI. Perhaps some things have been handed off to the ME council (of the orb), who are free to prosecute (and execute) as they wish.

      Finally, there are a lot more fish to fry than just Awan and the few little ones up now.
      I don’t think they’re putting up all those 40K-and-counting (YES, look it up) sealed indictments just to see how fast they can make it mount up. The problem, I think, will be the logistics of unrolling them and prosecuting them in the right order. We’re gonna need a bigger jail (and scaffolds)…

We shouldnt have been civil. We should have locked up all of the Nazis in large warehouses, doused them with gasoline, and set them on fire. If their crimes largely went unpunished, what hope do we have?

    We will never see proper justice for all of the crimes the Dems and RINOs committed. So if you pin your hopes on that you will certainly be disappointed. I think its necessary for good mental health to look at the bright side. Trump won. The truth is coming out even if Hillary doesnt end up in a prison cell where she deserves to be. The Dems are imploding. The country is doing well. Trump will soon be appointing a secoind SCOTUS justice. There is so much more to be happy about, all stuff that never would have happened if we hadn’t put Trump in the White House.
