Attkisson: “What Would The Intelligence Community ‘Insurance Policy’ Look Like?”…

Sharyl Attkisson has a great article written at The Hill today –SEE HERE–  Within the outline Attkisson ponders what exactly would an FBI/DOJ/IC “insurance policy” look like, and she smartly connects Lawfare Blog Benjamin Wittes October 2016 writing also about needing an “insurance policy” against the possibility of a Donald Trump victory.

Not accidentally, DOJ lawyer Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok also followed their fellow ideologues at Lawfare Blog and discussed plans and opinions amid their released text messages…. Also not accidentally, fired FBI General Counsel James Baker went to work for Lawfare after leaving the FBI.  Benjamin Wittes was a close friend of FBI Director James Comey.

For those who have researched the issues deeply, the connection between the DOJ/FBI “insurance policy” conspiracy group on the inside of government; and the Robert Mueller/Benjamin Wittes “insurance policy” group on the outside of government, has been clear for a long time.  However, Attkisson is the first mainstream person to write about it and connect the proverbial dots.

    The article was fantastic! She got everything that needed to be said in very few words. It was the perfect length that wouldn’t bore or overload the reader. She can easily write additional articles breaking apart everything that she referenced.

      The article was indeed fantastic and I believe highly persuasive, but the comments I read following the article started to scare me.

      It seems nobody budges from their original position ever on anything anymore, regardless of the strength of the argument, and regardless of purely verifiable facts. How do we ever change that?

        At some point the truth no longer can be recognized. No matter the evidence. When persuasion fails sometimes force is the only resort. Leftist resort to violence often, Antifa for example, but the right is more patient.

        But if we are forced to respond it will be quick and harsh. That day unfortunatley will have to happen because the sides are no longer listening. The left does not support the USA as founded but support sedition. This can only end one way.

            If every supporter of President Trump takes just one extra person to the polls that is either a new voter or one that doesn’t vote, be that a family member, friend, coworker, someone at the local Community Center, a elderly person, a disabled person, or someone who just needs a ride, we can make this fall the most massive red wave ever seen in US history.

            Our youngest son has always refused to vote and I have been on him about that for years, however this year he finally agreed to vote for the first time after seeing a nice little bump in his paychecks following President Trump’s tax reform. I told him that the dnc candidates have already said they want to take that money back, so even though I would never tell him how he should vote, I don’t think that there is any doubt about how he will vote…:)

          I basically agree with your comment, rf121, but it’s not that the truth can no longer be recognized. It is that the truth is absolutely irrelevant to these people. They care only about the narrative.

          It is worse (much worse) than pointless to debate these people. Focus on getting undecided / wavering friends and relatives to the polls this November.

But their inability to think logically and face facts is just incredible. Absolutely mind-boggling how dense they are. It would be an interesting study to see which came first – the inability to reason or their inane acceptance of socialism.

              It is part of being a Marxist. They LITERALLY REJECT OBJECTIVE REALITY!!!

              This is why we could never get anywhere in the Farm Wars or the Climate Wars.

              The Philosophy Of Karl Marx

              The philosophical bases of Marx’s thought were laid early and remained unchanged throughout his life. As a student, Marx accepted the philosophy of Hegel as the only sound and adequate explanation of the universe. According to this philosophy, “the only immutable thing is the abstraction of movement.” The one universal phenomenon is change, and the only universal form of this phenomenon is its complete abstraction. Thus, Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made. The universe and all events therein existed and took place only in the mind, and any change was a change in ideas…. The fundamental idea of change occurring as a synthesis of opposing forces…

              The thesis and antithesis became to Marx actual opposing forces existing in the universe, with synthesis the resulting objective phenomenon….”
              http://www.economictheories.org/2008/12/philosophy-of-karl-marx.html

              Read that again…

              Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made.

              Translation: If I wish really really hard it will come true!

              This is why they need ‘safe spaces’ They can not accept reality.

                It is good to remember that the Prussian aristocracy, (ancestors of much of the 20th-century Wehrmacht’s officer corps,) in their bid to retain a plantation-style political model in Germany in the face of modernizing currents from America and elsewhere, gave Hegel carte blanche on all academic appointments in all university philosophy departments in their realm.

                That’s right – to get a job teaching philosophy at the college level in Germany, you needed to have Hegel’s buy-in. And he kept this power, which he guarded jealously, for decades.

                It’s also good to remember that, during the 19th century, a group of American students from Yale University in Connecticut travel to Germany and were so impressed with the philosophy they encountered there that they came back to the US and decided to form a campus club to promote Hegelianism on this side of the Atlantic.

                The student club they founded at their alma mater is called Skull and Bones.

          Never, ever forget the Left deals mainly in creating ILLUSIONS!

          Bolshevik – derived from bol’shinstvo (большинство), “majority”, literally meaning “one of the majority” — were actually a rather small group but they took the name ‘Bolshevik’ to create the appearance they were the majority.

          The Left here in the USA uses the same tactic. They create the ILLUSION that their position is the most popular hoping to get the Sheeple to follow the ‘crowd’

          William R. Russell “was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks.

          Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:”

          The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

    ‏@LindseyGrahamSC “Why didn’t the FBI tell President Trump that they had concerns about Carter Page? Is there a double standard here?” They told Senator Diane Feinstein that she had a spy – but not Trump. Is that entrapment or did they just want to use Page as an excuse to SPY?

    The master of Twitter just laid it out for all to see.
    “Did they just want to use Page as an excuse to SPY?”.

    His tweets are getting more and more specific. This is a complicated case with lots of moving parts for the non-Treeper. In 12 words he laid out to 60 million followers what they did. FBI asset Carter Page inserted in a campaign by the FBI so they could use him to Spy on DJT on behalf of HRC.
    Eric Holder, Preet Bahara, John Carlin all knew Page was an asset.

        It is pretty incredible how with Watergate, the media were virtually all looking for the truth. Today very few of them are interested in truth. For them it is only about winning the narrative and the fight for progressivism. For the most part they are wilfully blind. They control the narrative by ignoring anything that could be helpful to Conservatives. I would like to know whether J schools now teach these methods.

      fle, he files an official complaint? How ludicrous and ignorant Mueller is. In my more than 50 yrs. in law no one files a complaint because it has no meaning. He may be thinking by complaining the judge will be recused but that takes a special document to have any effect. What Mueller wants is to look like he knows what he is doing against a judge who is appearing as a REAL judge who knows the law and as judge will not tolerate idiots trying or pointing out stupidity. Reminds me of the old time English judges! Sorry, Mueller, resign because you are losing at every point. You are known as a miserable attorney, liar, cheat, wasting our money all of which we want back from you and those Clinton attorneys you hired, and frankly walked to the gallows. Sorry, but Trump is the best President ever, fulfills his promises, and hasn’t a darn thing you can get on him, and I see that Manafort is coming up as well in your losing before this REAL judge.

    It seems a useful too to think about what exactly it was that they were planning to do. I think she lets them off the hook a bit by limiting it somewhat to a whisper campaign. If it weren’t for Mike Rogers Trump may not have known that he and his team were being watched. I would guess their real goal was to find some real dirt not just to hope the Russia thing turned up something.

    Mike Rogers is probably the biggest single thing to go wrong with their plan but there were other things too. Buzzfeed printing the dossier was actually a terrible thing for the plan. Imagine how much more successful they would have been if it had stayed a whisper campaign with only shadowy references to a dossier and no leaks of the parts that could be or were disproven. It would have been much more damaging that way. The other really damaging leak to their cause was the Page FISA leak. The FISA abuse has really lead the day in exposing wrongdoing. Obviously other things too but that one seems to be the one that has the most bite and without it becoming public that it existed then it would have been much harder for Nunes to fight to declassify.

    So next to Mike Rogers the press actually deserves a bit of credit for exposing this despite their actual intentions. The conspirators needed a whisper campaign with selective leaks and instead they inspired a “leak it all” and “make it all headlines” atmosphere that really backfired in the end. If they had kept better control over some of this information they would have been a lot more successful but when you make leaking your method of attack then it shouldn’t be a surprise when it bites back. It’s really funny when you think about the way that people who hated Trump and wanted to damage him actually leaked the fake info they cooked up that was supposed to remain hidden.

      Adm. Rogers is a true American hero. He didn’t tell Trump what was going on because of politics or his love for the MAGA ideal. He did it because it was the right thing to do. He is a warrior. A true man of honor.

      Think about it for a second. He stopped the spying via the NSA and the howls for him to be fired by Barky were deafening. He didn’t cave to the pressure. And when he had the opportunity, he went directly to the incoming POTUS and told him what he knew. Remember, that’s when Trump first tweeted that he was wiretapped.

      Adm. Rogers retired and hasn’t turned his former job into a cash machine as a “national security expert” for the fake news.

      He did what true warriors do after that final battle (if they survive it), he went home.

It described how to fight a “well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass” targets. Private eyes would probe into their personal lives, courts would be used for lawsuits. “Massive demonstrations” would be organized, Michael Moore would make a negative documentary and “a team of trackers” would stake out targets at events. “Opposition research” would be collected. The targets would be attacked on social media, yard signs posted in their neighborhoods, and a “mole” placed inside their organization.”

    To summarize the writer’s objective…

    | My initial impression reading the dossier was that the writing was sloppy and that it did not resemble an intelligence report. It exhibited multiple writing styles and writers, both English and non-English speakers, and it was assembled in haste.

    Considering all of the dossier’s unusual aspects, I decided to take a little time and do a deeper dive into its structure and content. In this post, I’ll demonstrate how by using readily available OSINT tools and techniques, video analytics, and writing style analysis, we can pinpoint the likely sources, methods, and the individuals involved in the creation and distribution of this document. |

      Revisionism was a Soviet propaganda movement in the decades before the fall of the Soviet Union. Its goal was to make Stalinism trendy and morally acceptable again by repackaging stale old Communist lies and talking points in fashionable new language.

      Our favorite beauty queen earned her Ph.D. as a revisionist historian using material she found in the Soviet archives. Few Westerners were allowed in them, and the ones who were were required to have both their subject matter and their method of research controlled by official Communist archivists.

      In other words, the black hats managing information flows behind the Iron Curtain could trust her as a reliable Red when she did her thesis research.

      After Steele and dear Nellie, Fiction GPS’ third Russian expert was named Edward Baumgartner. On October 19, he revealed his non-MAGA orientation with the following bon mot directed at Sarah Huckabee Sanders, via Twitter:

      “Are you really the love child of Mike Huckabee and Bernie Sanders? Which ___ did you crawl out of?” [3-letter vulgarity in original redacted by me]

      He is resident in Russia, and earned a degree in Russian at Vassar when Nellie was teaching Russian history there in the first half of the 90s.

      It seems like a very small world for Nellie and Baumgartner to both wind up researching alleged Russian collusion in the Trump campaign at Fiction GPS at the same time if she is a mere bit player in the drama, ham radio enthusiast, and, of course, trophy wife of Bruce.

    I check Sharyl’s website every day. She is the very definition of what an unbiased, investigative journalist should be.

    When Ben Rhodes’s brother, who runs CBS news, started dumping Sharyl’s stories if they were critical of the Obama administration, she quit CBS after like 20 years. That takes GUTS.
    God bless you Sharyl and keep up the EXCELLENT work!

    The casual public will always wrestle with this level of corruption and PDJT understands the message can only be delivered by enticing MSM coverage of his tweets on the subject and thus uses the tool to the best of his advantage.

    Could he have been president without this forum??? or would the insurance plan succeeded at stage 1?

    Love/hate relationship with social media but it probably saved our Republic.

      A couple of days before Macron’s election in France, one of the sites, I think it was Twitter, announced it was deleting thousands of fake accounts.

      It turned out that the “fake” accounts closed were those of actual supporters of Marine Le Pen and her National Front (now called National Rally,) which are against unrestricted 3rd world immigration, and which were spiking upwards in the polls in the closing week before the election.

      So the anti-Establishment party’s voters were stymied at the last minute, and yet again their party was locked out of getting candidates elected, despite large and rapidly growing public support.

      I’m guessing something like this in America may be planned for these midterms, as another rider on the insurance plan.

    So the msm echo chamber is in full bat guano TDS meltdown over a secret tape of Devin Nunes at a GOP fundraiser. His crime? Stating the obvious. That the GOP needs to keep its majority this November to protect PDT from being impeached. Oh the horrors of it all. Democrats insist that he needs to resign immediately. I really hope they didn’t pay their deep undercover agent for this. After all, he pretty much said the same thing on Fox in the past couple of weeks. The left has truly lost their marbles.

    That was a great and easy to follow and read article, just like Flep said.

    I started firing back on the trolls on that article’s comments but it’s getting harder and harder since there are still no PERP WALKS. These people need an ice cold bucket of that reality in order for it to sink in. And then everyone will know to never pull that crap again. We can’t let this go, no Potamic Two-Step!

    I read a comment that Joe Digenova said that POTUS is starting to declassify???

    Atkisson has an interesting read on the Jan. 6, 2017 stay-behind first “private meeting” (requested by Comey, btw) between Trump and Jimmy C when she writes: ” The reigning FBI director could privately send the implicit message that as long as Trump minds his own business, he won’t be named as a target.” That is how I read that first meeting: Comey was acting just like J. Edgar Hoover who used to let the highest ranking people in the US Government know that “he had the goods on them” and wouldn’t hesitate to use them if the specimen did not play ball.

    This paraphrase of Comey’s own testimony on the meeting supports that reading: “Comey did not reveal to the president-elect at this time that the information had come to light through opposition research financed by his opponents, ‘because it wasn’t necessary for my goal,’ which was merely to alert him the FBI had obtained the information.” Comey knew the dossier was “salacious and unverified” but but he wasn’t going to pass that along because he just wanted Trumpto learn that Comey had something on him. Letting Trump know the something was a silly made up story would undercut Jimmy’s goal so he chose to lead Trump on. Real slimy stuff, Jimmy.

    I believe we are getting closer to the full unveiling of the scandal that we all have already known to have taken place. The information about the “insurance policy” has been slowly dripping out for the past year. However, it has been ratcheted up over the last month or so. I strongly believe the plan is to convince as many Americans of the scandal prior to the details being released in full. There will be bloodshed because the morons on the left will take to the streets and riot. However this strategy was employed to limit that bloodshed. I know this sounds harsh but, the people that will be in the streets are those that have long ago lost their humanity and can no longer think for themselves. They can’t rationalize facts and are incapable of reason. Think about what would have happened if they had dumped the entirety of this treason into the American people’s laps 12-18 months ago. Millions would have been put down in the streets. This plan will make that number closer to 100k-200k

      AmericanThinker had a good article, last day or so, in the 3 levels of socialism/communism.

      The useful idiots, the largest #, and redeemable.

      The true believer, zealot who will do anything for the cause, at all costs.

      And the leaders, who don’t for a moment BELIEVE all the claptrap, but only see it as a way to attain power.

      The second two groups are quite small in #, and cannot achieve anything, without the useful idiots.

      Golfbro, I do not believe anything like such casualties will be neccesary nor inevitable.

      I believe DJT is working towards a bloodless non-coup, and I believe he will be succesful.

      He, by actions and words, along with a small # of white hat allies, and steadily increasing support of the American people will resolve this with minimal bloodshed, minimal harm to the Republic, and with a restoration of the rule of law and Constitutional form of Gov.

      And THAT, Making American Great Again is what he promised us, and what we voted for.

      All else is chaff and countermeasures,..

    Attkisson is on the money and saying what a lot of us know to be true. This stuff is bad, real bad and should not be forgotten.

    I’ve said it before populist (MAGA) type candidates need to add reforming or possibly shutting down the FBI to their points. This stuff should worry everyone no matter what party or whatever.

    I’m also curious on why DoJ using tax payer dollars to fight Attkisson in court. She’s the victim give her info and pay her lawyer. Not related to previous point, she’s literally like one of the last people that fits into what my wife and I believe journalists are supposed to be.

    I believe POTUS should make this happen because it’s the actual right thing to do. Give her what she wants in court or in a SCIF. If bad things were done and names come out so be it.

    I’m glad that what Lawfare did and planned to do is slowly leaking out. Better late than never.
    It seems that not too many people caught Lawfare’s (Witte and his best buddy Comey) promise to work using the court systems to bring the Trump presidency down and make it illegitimate. They delivered on that promise and have done a great deal of damage from the start. Is it too late to stop them, or expose what they did, is my worry.

    I would think at this point that at least one of them would be up all night disgusted with what they have done to the rule of law in this country and come forward and spill the beans. If he’s too scared for that at least find a way to leak more.
    I’m worried that maybe none of them have a conscious, at this point, and they’re pure ideologues

    It’s a useful intellectual exercise to play Devil’s advocate against your own position: What if everything you believe to be true is wrong, and the other side is right?

    I do this: It helps to clear away the chaff from my own positions. It’s also helpful for understanding the mindset of the oppposition.

    Trump-Russia collusion theory doesn’t withstand even the most cursory critical examination. What assuming it to be correct tells me is those people who believe it either haven’t thought it through, don’t know enough of the story to think it through, are just plain dishonest, or incapable of reasoning.

    I suspect most people in the general public don’t know much, they just hear bits and pieces.

      I do that, too. And I regularly ask myself “how would I feel about the issue if someone I didn’t like or agree with did it? How about someone I do like?” I also remind myself that very few things are really the ‘either/or’ proposition many want me to believe. I am open to the possibility that Team Trump, or some members, did wrong or illegal things but I don’t believe it’s been proven by anything released so far. With the intensity of the investigation so far I think something more concrete would have been discovered, but I am mindful that I don’t know everything. In other words, I try to maintain a distinction between what I know and what I believe or suspect. That’s why it bothers me so much when I see people elsewhere post things like ‘You just know the Mango Mussolini wants to do x,y,z!’ and then 15 other people chime in with their imaginings and suddenly they seem convinced that it really happened.

      What I do know is that there is far more than circumstantial evidence that the FISA process was abused – that was in Judge Collyers opinion. I know that there was some sort of failure in the CIFIUS process, considering that one or two members knew of an ongoing investigation into corruption, bribery and extortion that involved the parties to the sale but failed to disclose that information to the rest of the committee. That means they failed at their purpose, and I think that needs to be investigated. Not because ‘Hillary sold our Uranium!’ but because We deserve to know why the system failed and how to prevent it from happening again. Furthermore, James Comey was kind enough to confirm that what we suspected Hillary did was correct. And the more that comes out about the FISA warrant, the more our suspicions are confirmed.

      So the facts seem to be turning up in favor of the Insurance Policy Theory being correct while Trump Russia Collusion is starting to sound more and more like ‘well you just know he did it!’

    The part Atkinson includes in her article is something I have taken a lot of grief here at CTH: Jeff Sessions’ recusal was engineered by the conspirators and should not of happened.

    The entire investigation is a fraud: there is no valid reason for any investigation of the Trump 2016 campaign. It is a complete fiction designed specifically to cause Sessions’ recusal.
