Paul Manafort’s Plea…

Former convention delegate manager Paul Manafort, entered into a plea deal today with Special Counsel Robert Mueller for issues related to his lobbying firm and FARA registry violations.  The plea has nothing to do with candidate Trump, president-elect Trump, or President Trump.  Manafort agrees to cooperate with federal prosecutors regarding other issues surrounding his lobbying network and affiliates.

Rather than read media opinion of the plea agreement HERE IS THE PLEA.  You can read it.  Earlier tonight Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox News with Sean Hannity to discuss:

        What they did to Manafort they tried to do to Trump and his family never forget that.
        I see Manafort as a victim of corrupt DOJ and corrupt Government.
        Until they get Podesta and Clinton’s I will always believe that. The people who govern our country are dirty and rotten to the core. The light finally is shining on the rats.

      This plea deal is actually devastating to the Coup Plotters! They had every belief that the trial would be occurring as we got closer and closer to the November Election. They would have a news story every night for the two weeks of the trial.

      That was thrown out the window with this plea deal. The fact it was released today with Hurricane Florence happening tells you that Mueller needed to bury this story because the Left would have gone nuts.

      Manafort’s lawyer made a statement today where he said in order to agree to the plea, he needed assurance that his client would be protected. That protection has nothing to do against our President but what I believe is Russian and Ukrainian Oligarchs.

      Where this all goes will be interesting to watch. This was a big win for our President and the Republicans running for office in November.

          I would like to remind all treepers that when president Trump tweets about the hurricane he ALWAYS mention ‘the storm’. That little nugget is meant for the coup plotters and us – his supporters.
          That storm applies to them – all of them – and ABC apparently is catching on that ‘storm’ is not affiliated with the hurricane.

          Did you all know that the observatory in NM was raided by the FBI as Black Helicopters swarmed and shut it down?
          They are many others that were shut down at the same time in other locations. Hmmmmmm….!
          We know the deep state has been engineering hurricanes, floods, earth quakes via the weapons. We learned that California’s political leadership likes to set fires to their own via the DEW to enable them to get monies from the taxpayers since their sanctuary policies has hindered their usual federal aid.
          As Q said: What does California due when short on funds and no federal aid arrives/sanctuary policy? Well – set fires. Keep that in mind when Holder or Hussein mouth off in California. 🙂

              Manafort was being threatened by someone when he was first placed in jail after being accused of witness tampering. That’s how/why he ended up in solitary confinement. Certainly, any Russian or Ukrainian oligarch he screwed over would probably have ties to the Russian mob, members of which are likely jailed by the feds when indicted and prosecuted. Obviously, Manafort has exposure there.

              BTW, both Bruce Ohr and Andrew McCabe have worked together on investigating members of the Russian mobs. Hillary also has ties to Urkrainians, interfering in both Ukraine and Russian elections and any Russian or Ukrainian oligarch she encountered would have been fleeced by the Clinton Foundation. So, maybe Manafort knows enough to bring the Podestas down, which means another avenue into Hillary or Bill.

        Fle isn’t Mueller with this plea deal just going to use Manafort to try to get something against any Russian oligarch then float a bogus charge that President Trump was money laundering through Russian oligarchs in selective leaks to the msm? I just don’t believe that Mueller has given up trying to take out President Trump via false charges or by creating a new law and filing charges his MO! Then transfer those false money laundering charges to the New York State AG for prosecution to avoid Presidential pardon eligibility. The real purpose of Mueller is two fold to destroy President Trump’s Presidency and destroy Trump’s family fortune. The deep state will destroy any outsider like Trump and Mueller needs to send a clear signal to others not to even attempt what President Trump has or you and your family will pay a tremendous price.

      Fragment found from the mostly destroyed library of H.G. Wells and dated January 21, 2021 –

      Candidate and then President Donald J. Trump was condemned by royalist democrats and royalist GOPe because he believed that America’s government should return to of, by and for the people, rather than of, by and for the royalists and their special interest money men. . This belief was dangerous heresy to them, and their pocketbooks, so royalists, democrat and GOPe, and their lackeys in the MSM and their designated Presidential assassin, Gestapo Bob Mueller, aka, OTR* Lee Harvey Oswald 2.0, performed their inquisition and declared, “none may speak with him by word of mouth, nor by writing, nor show any favor to him, nor be under one roof with him.” Trump responded by running for and winning a second term as the American people’s MAGA President.

              • You’re on an epiphany roll today, Wolf. let me try and pitch in.

                While the KGB might have seeded demoralization during the Cold War era, the pollenization effect becomes self-fulfilling as it progressively gains a stronger foothold with each passing generation. You only have to plant it. Controlling school curricula is paramount (NEA). What was the SU’s main historic purpose? Believe it or not, to man the dialectic and serve as the contaminator. It’s mission thus accomplished, the SU evaporated at lightning speed.

                So while the SU was an effective agent of transmission in the post-WW2 era, Communism is a transcending, globalist project (Schiff financed Lenin & Trotsky) The culminating dialectic is collectivism as American patriotism (and capitalism) wither away under a subversive Cultural Marxist onslaught. We are all converging on a collectivist model to be overseen by the bankers in league with Xi’s China. Griffin (Bezmenov’s interviewer on youtube) has argued this collectivist-convergence model for decades. Now, do China and the BIS have undisclosed agendas to ultimately eclipse the other? That’s possible and makes dialectical sense since monism is the last gesture of history under this Hegelian process. One World. Indivisible. Under Lucifer. All systems get butted together until only one ram remains.

                It’s testament to a successful subversion effort (as defined by Bezmenov) that Facebook/Google (ostensible icons of capitalism) could ever break bread with China.

                God relishes insurmountable odds and always prefers One Man to do his work. Abraham. Lot. Noah. As above, so below.

                So while we may emit human shudders over the improbability of Trump against the world, it has a certain biblical resonance. Trump is almost a caricature of confidence and outsized success. But that’s exactly the over-the-topness that is required to uproot generations of cultural demoralization. Trump Derangement Syndrome is not a clinical pathology. It is a cacophony of the minor demons that reside in millions of subverted Americans. Trump cannot be properly discussed and understood outside a spiritual context. But in a culture raised to hate Christianity, the vocabulary required to even initiate this debate is verboten.

                Keep the faith. After seventy years in the belly of the beast, Russia is experiencing a Christian renaissance of unparalleled power. Forget geopolitics. Russophobia is a demonically-fueled contempt for a nation that managed to shake off the demonic yoke. Can Trump do the same for America?

                  A lot of this boils down to a kind of information theory war that parallels spirituality upward and ethics/politics downward. The fact that this happens now, with the Internet gaining self-control and AI becoming understood, is not accidental.

        Me neither, that is until PDJT was elected. He appeared to be a liberal hack for most of the days in-between.

        After PDJT was elected, Geraldo eased up. He has defended PDJT on immigration, Puerto Rico fiasco and the economy. I never watch The Five but my son was visiting and his wife was concerned about the hurricane. Put on FNN and there was Geraldo. “Don’t get me started on Puerto Rico!” Then Geraldo proceeded to turn it loss on the face news and SJ mayor. It also helps that Geraldo is a 35+ year friend of PDJT.

        I do however miss the “liberal” Geraldo as my wife and I battled mightily for the remote. I would mute him she would want to listen, allegedly for another point of view.

      See – THIS is the difference between Watergate and Spygate.

      Halper and the CIA induced crimes under Nixon, to take Nixon out, but Nixon panicked and tried to protect his people, not realizing that it was all a big plot to take him down.

      TRUMP must have been wise to THIS round of the Halper Presidential Leverage and Elimination Plot, even before people tipped him off about Halper around the time of Rogers’ visit to Trump Tower.

      Mueller was supposed to REAP on induced crimes. TRUMP simply didn’t allow the process of criminal induction to occur. Trump didn’t end up holding the bag – he gave the empty bag back to Mueller and said “smile for that cop over there. He’s with me.”

      Mueller and Weissmann are fulfilling the plot just as planned, but there’s no THERE THERE for them to reap. AND they all realize that not only were they SKUNKED by Trump – SMILE – they’re on Candid Saudi Camera, courtesy of SIXTH EYE.

      Magnificent. Mueller and Weissmann act like stand-up guys for the cameras. BRAVO! Because they can’t do anything else.

      The whole thing is MASTERFUL.

      Now they can TRY to say that there was obstruction with Flynn, but WHO THE FXXX is going to believe them? The GROUND has been eaten out from under the feet of these criminals. All that will do is ENRAGE our side to vote the Democrats out of existence for all time. And then they go to jail for FINISHING their plot against Flynn.

Of course, he risks his life if he does that, but he spends a long time in jail if he accepts the charges.

      It fits too well that someone of Manafort’s international dealings, some apparently shady and with Russian or Ukrainian VIPs would be somehow persuaded to join the campaign itself, and the, because of prior issues with federal LEAs, could be easily targeted for surveillance along with two hops.

      Manafort may or may not have joined the campaign with the intent to hand DJT, but it’s bothered me that he would have been asked to join given his problematic background.

The RNC/McCain froze out all the standard professional GOP advisors from working with Trump’s campaign before the Primary. Trump was getting hammered in the media, “Who are your advisors?” Trump had to scrape together whatever clowns were available, including Page & PapaD.

        I think the RNC leadership knew exactly the outcome would be “resist” and “Mueller” when they brought in Manafort, Page and Papadop. There is a conspirator, to bring down Donald Trump, who goes undiscussed and flies under the radar due to political necessity of the need to win elections. That conspirator is the RNC and Republican Congressional leadership. Donald Trump is a highly intelligent person, yet he did not have enough domain knowledge, in 2016 and part of 2017, to make key personnel selections to help win the election. Enter the “newly sympathetic” RNC leadership who were happy to “help”.

        Manafort was spared prosecution under the Obama administration for use at a later date.
        Page and Papadop were both FBI informants, the RNC knew.
        How many senior RNC Members and Republican congressional members have really provided any public support for the President? Note that the current set of supporters of the president are lightweights with zero portfolio to carry votes outside their districts.

    2. this trial would be in a hostile jury pool court, with a hostile and Obama-complicit judge, against his same legal team, which is much more likely to produce guilty verdicts

    Manafort folded his hand in that poker game, and is cutting his monetary losses.

    The only angle I can think of is the Deep State is preparing for the evidence and exposing of the prior administration spying and with this new revelation it gives the DOJ/FBI/O Administration cover to say the reason they were doing so much spying is they were on the Manafort trail back pre Trump when he was helping Putin so they had to spy to look out for the country.

    It is the only thing I can think of why they are allowing the arrow to point backward?

Is it not strange that the left was hyping up Russia Russia Russia. Then to cover that they care and at least Obama did something about Russia, he sent home like 120 plus Russian diplomats from DC…… Does no one else question or think why were there that many Russians rooted in upper political DC? Was Obama actually getting rid of evidence and avenues for PDJT to investigate and look like he did something against Russia at the same time? Just too many conflicts and coincidences in my mind there is something there. Obama was going to have more flexibility after his last election right?… I need suspicious eyed cat pic insert here.
