Interesting and Frustrating: Senator Ron Johnson Questions FBI Director Christopher Wray….

There was a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee hearing today where one of the responding executive branch officials was FBI Director Christopher Wray.  Toward the end of the hearing, long after the rest of the members had left the hearing, Chairman Ron Johnson took the opportunity to ask Director Wray some very specific and pointed questions about the current issues within the FBI as an institutional office.

Few people remember, fewer even know, that it was Ron Johnson’s committee effort that brought out the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages.  Lots of other committees began exploring DOJ and FBI misconduct, but it was Johnson who started the sunlight back in July and August of 2017.  That’s the baseline to begin to appreciate this questioning.

The exchange between Chairman Johnson and Director Wray begins around 02:15:00 of the video (nearly two and a half hours into the hearing).  Likely few will have watched this because, just like actually reading the 600 pages of Page/Strzok text messages, it takes granular exploration to understand what is happening.

Chairman Johnson starts asking specific questions about the lack of response from officials underneath Director Wray.  As CTH outlined in the June 2018 FBI press conference on the IG report, Christopher Wray transparently has no clue (intentionally so) what is going on within his institutional apparatus.

Wray doesn’t know who has responded to oversight requests; what oversight requests have been made; what documents exist; what documents are being hidden; what documents the FBI possesses; and the current status of the FBI to produce documents for oversight.

This level of disconnection is critical to see and watch first-hand.

It is critical to see because this reality speaks directly to the corrupt internal officials who are underneath Wray and manipulating the executive suites of the cabinet.

A combination of willful blindness and abject ineptitude comes to the surface as you watch the shallow and superficial answers from the FBI director.  This is not necessarily Wray being corrupt, this is Wray’s office being corrupted by officials within the FBI as an institution.

Don’t take my word for it.  Watch it yourself [prompted, just hit play]:

.

Then comes the “rip off the bandaid” [02:18:30] – Two issues of primary focus:

♦ (1) Notice how Director Wray deflects questions about current documentary requests behind the shield of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation.  There’s the frustrating part for Senator Johnson and those of us who completely accept this shield is by design.  THIS is the purpose of Mueller.

Robert Mueller (the entire team) was put into place, carefully selected by James Baker and Andrew McCabe, specifically to cover for the DOJ and FBI activity that preceded the firing of James Comey. Mueller’s role has two essential aspects:

♦(i) Create an investigation – Just by creating the investigation it is then used as a shield by any corrupt FBI/DOJ official who would find himself/herself under downstream congressional investigation.  Former officials being deposed/questioned by IG Horowitz or Congress could then say they are unable to answer those questions due to the ongoing special counsel investigation.  In this way Mueller provides cover.

♦(ii)  Use the investigation to keep any and all inquiry focused away from the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity that took place in 2015, 2016, 2017.  Keep the media narrative looking somewhere, anywhere, other than directly at the epicenter of the issues.

♦ (2) As the conversation between Johnson and Wray continues, [02:20:12] On the Bruce Ohr 302’s etc. Note Director Wray’s response:

….”But I do know there is a very serious, ongoing, criminal investigation, that involves grand jury secrecy and the need to protect the integrity of that investigation.  Whether the particular documents that you are asking for, and the particular requests, run afoul of that I’d have to have someone take a look at it”…

This reference is likely directed toward the previously reported criminal referral of Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe for his actions and activities surrounding his lies to INSD investigators about leaking information to media; and the creation of the “spygate” fiasco.

It was reported in early September, 2018, that a grand jury was impaneled to review the evidence against Andrew McCabe [SEE HERE]

That said, there are ridiculous amounts of people who would take that statement by Director Wray as an “ah-ha” defense to say there is a vast 3-D, stealth Jeff, ongoing sting operation being conducted under the radar to take down mass swaths of the former administration, DOJ and FBI officials.  That claim is nonsense.

By looking at the behavior of those who would directly be targeted within such an investigative approach, if real; and from an acceptance that such a vast sting operation being conducted within the apparatus of the DOJ and FBI would not remain hidden to the corrupt officials it would be targeting; and accepting there are corrupt institutional elements remaining within the DOJ and FBI that would tip-off external elements that would be the target of such an approach; and accepting the factual basis of what decision-making took place within the FBI and DOJ surrounding James Wolfe…. there is not a scintilla of demonstrable evidence such an investigative round-up is taking place.

The Occam’s Razor behind the Wray comments is the narrow criminal focus on the conduct of former FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Yes, McCabe is a potential criminal target; however, he is the only known (and inferred) criminal target.

Additionally, the outlying evidence -McCabe knowing he is a target- is visible within the latest reports from the Washington Post, specifically Devlin Barrett reporting, highlighting how team McCabe is constructing a narrative in defense of McCabe to the disparagement of Rod Rosenstein.  [SEE HERE]

Team McCabe is trying to set-up Rosenstein to go down if McCabe is taken down.

Team McCabe is: Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, James Baker, Michael Kortan, Daniel Richman, Benjamin Wittes, Michael Bowditch and to a lesser and self-serving extent, James Comey and David Laufman….  These are the people leaking to, and sources for, Devlin Barrett and the Washington Post, as well as the New York Times, in the effort to pin DAG Rod Rosenstein to the cross and distract from the epicenter of the soft-coup, Andrew McCabe.

Defending McCabe in essence defends the entire soft-coup team.

While this defense is ongoing at a very high level, the institutional brethren of the group, mainly from deep inside Main Justice, are working earnestly to continue marginalizing AG Sessions and fuel the Robert Mueller ‘insurance policy’.  In effect, this keeps congressional oversight at a controllable distance.

TEAM McCABE – Shortly after Robert S. Mueller III was appointed to investigate possible coordination between President Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin, he was drawn into a tense standoff in which Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and then-acting FBI director Andrew McCabe each urged the other to step aside from the case, according to people familiar with the matter.

At the time of the confrontation in mid-May 2017, tensions were running high at the FBI and Justice Department, and between Rosenstein and McCabe. Trump had just fired James B. Comey as the bureau’s director, and almost immediately afterward, FBI officials had opened a case into whether the president had obstructed justice. (read more)

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is a man without any team.  He is simultaneously trying to keep the narrative engineers from constructing his framing – and with his fingertips, hold on to the possible defensive skirt of the President.

From a political perspective Rosenstein is in ‘no-man’s-land’.  Perhaps wasn’t a direct and active participant in the soft-coup; however, at the same time he did nothing to impede their efforts; and the “small group” manipulated his position to initiate the Special Counsel.

Rosenstein is FUBAR.

Are you suggesting that the Deep State is going to win this battle because the corruption is to deeply embedded to root it out?

                AMEN. A-friggin’-MEN!

                I just figured out last night that CHINA is targeting Wray. Oh, these ChiComs are so sneaky. They will pull crap when you’re looking right at them.

                I did a deep dive on Wray last night because of this post. Things didn’t make sense.
                Everything is telling me that Wray’s basic nature is MAGA, straight-shooter, and that he is the antithesis of what the other side wants. In particular, he is the first guy in a long time to actually GET the China problem. BOOM. That is when I realized what is happening.

                SO – in my humble and slightly opposing opinion – the whole “turn against Sessions and Wray” movement is striking me as a highly skilled ChiCom product. The ChiComs are amazingly good at hiding the China hand. They push American faces as actors and actors behind actors to get their goals, and most people never see it, but I smell the invisible Chinese hand like very few can, and it is all over this push against Wray.

                So why is Wray being ineffective to Congress? It’s a VALID QUESTION. In some ways this is also CLASSIC CHINA – they always try to move a situation very quickly to a state where their enemies BLAME THE VICTIM. Very few people are as SNEAKY and SKILLED as the ChiComs in getting their enemies to shoot each other.

                China’s method of undermining institutions is A THOUSAND CUTS FROM BELOW, AND AN KNIFE TO THE THROAT AT THE TOP. So every Holderite, McCabian and Canklebot in FBI is foot-dragging as hard as they can, many not even realizing who “The Resistance” really serves. And all that is being used against Wray from below, IMO.

                I’m sorry, but I will not blame Wray for Chinese black-hattery. We MAY need to put an even tougher fighter in his place (thinking Wolf Moon wearing an AR-15 to pressers), but until somebody SHOWS ME THE GOODS, I say Wray is our best fighter already. The only two people I know who are tougher on China are Peter Navarro and ME, and there is no way Peter is qualified, and no way I would be allowed into my own Senate hearings with an AR-15 on my back (among other reasons 😉 ).

                I think we need to see what Wray is like AFTER THE MIDTERMS IF WE KEEP THE HOUSE. Will he be more cooperative? I think so.

                If I’m correct in my thinking, then Wray will be MORE FORTHCOMING when President Trump has greater operational freedom. I think we are seeing this to some extent already, but not completely, for valid reasons.

          One thing I’ve noticed while having read most of the comments on this thread is that all the comments are about Wray, appropriately since this is a Wray thread. My problem is with the intelligence committees which have the complete right to oversee the FBI and have access to unredacted documents, yet they do nothing. Their oversight is non existent because they are deep state too yet they have the right to correct the course of the country, but they don’t.

          I think a lot of the fault lies with them.

          End of 1982 Consent Decree: GOP finally can contest vote fraud after 36 years

          “Did you know that since 1982, the Republican Party had been legally prohibited from contesting elections due to suspected vote fraud, because of a legal agreement called the Consent Decree the GOP made with the Democrat Party?

          Finally, 36 years later, a judge has ended the agreement, freeing the Republican Party to ensure electoral integrity by investigating and pursuing suspected vote fraud…

          The two parties agreed that “in the future, in all states and territories of the United States,” they would:

          (d) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their employees to campaign within restricted polling areas or tointerrogate prospective voters as to their qualifications to vote prior to their entry to a polling place;

          (e) refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose;

          (f) refrain from having private personnel deputized as law enforcement personnel in connection with ballot security activities.

          ….To put it bluntly, the Consent Decree in effect gave a carte blanche to the Democrat Party to commit vote fraud in every voting district across America that has, in the language of the Consent Decree, “a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations.” The term “substantial proportion” is not defined…..”

          AND NOW that has ENDED!!!!! 😋

        Here is my problem Curry which supports your “I find it hard to believe.”

        We are asked to take POTUS at his word about Sessions. i.e. he made a mistake appointing him, Sessions is incompetent and useless etc etc.
        Yet we are asked NOT TO take the POTUS at his word when he says RR is fine, he likes him and gets along with him and won’t fire him.
        We are told RR is a snake who fell out with his co-conspirators and is now in no mans land.

        By the way, we were also told that the likes of Lisa Page et al were sat down, told they had no way to hide or escape, pushed a piece of paper under their nose and asked to sign it or else. We were told Page et al were cooperating.
        Now we are told Page is part of the McCabe team and she is doing everything she can to protect McCabe, which in turn protects herself etc.

        I’ve watched many hundreds of hours of Donald J Trump and read his book. The one thing he has always said and has never wavered from is that he hates traitors, and traitors must be destroyed and gotten rid of IMMEDIATELY.
        I clearly recall him saying ‘do not allow a traitor to stay in your organization for a minute longer’.
        If Prez Trump thought Sessions or Wray or RR were traitors to him, he would have destroyed them long ago.
        I plan on waiting to see how all this pans out. Making assumptions and presuming from “press reports” is a never ending circle game.

        p.s. I believe Gen. Mike Rogers is a patriot of the first order. If POTUS was still in danger from these seditious bastards, he would not have resigned from his post. He would have stayed as the head of NSA until all crooks were under control.
        The fact that Rogers walked away tells me POTUS is safe from these bastards.

        I will offer these thoughts: That Andrew McCabe become Acting FBI Director when Comey was fired was very very bad for POTUS. As we now know, McCabe immediately opened an FBI investigation of DJT for obstruction of justice. Getting someone — anyone — in place as FBI Director was essential removing McCabe as head of the FBI. Speed was important. As another commentator here said (paraphrasing): “Wray was the only person that McCain (and other GOPe Senators) would approve.”

        If true, Wray’s confirmation was a GOOD, VERY good, result for DJT even if Wray now is covering up the institutional corruption at the FBI. McCabe was very dangerous, was removed from controlling the FBI and is now out of the FBI. McCabe and Hillary are “BFFs” going back to Arkansas.

        All of this must be viewed from the eyes of DJT. He must remain POTUS; whatever it takes including hiring FBI Directors who will cover up corruption. POTUS cannot even begin to address FBI corruption if he is not POTUS.

        Some dates are important: May 9, 2017 Comey fired and McCabe becomes Acting FBI Director. May 15 is Mueller’s three hour interview with POTUS to be the FBI Director even though Mueller was not eligible (but maybe Congress would have made an exception like they did for Mattis). On May 16, the meeting occurs where Rosenstein says “Well, what do you want me to do, Andy, wear a wire?” This is a DOJ meeting. From POTUS’ perspective, there are ongoing serious discussions about removing him from office.

        For me, it is hard to imagine that POTUS did not get “wind” of the 25th Amendment discussions. It was rumored in the media, if I recall correctly.

        On May 17, Mueller is appointed. The effect of appointing Mueller was to remove the “russia investigation” from McCabe’s control. Further, my guess is that Mueller’s appointment seriously kills off any thought of immediately using the 25th Amendment since most of the Cabinet would say “Let’s see what Mueller uncovers.” An “ongoing investigation” can serve many functions including being good cover for taking “no action” (see Kavanaugh holding patterns).

        Yes, Democrats and GOPe politicos wanted the Special Counsel, but in May 2017, a SC appointment had some advantages to POTUS. Don’t forget the three hours “interview” with Mueller on May 15.

        Not until Aug 2 is Wray sworn in and takes over the FBI. So, McCabe is in charge of the FBI for ten weeks or so, but only had control of the “russia investigation” for 8 days.

        Both Wray and Mueller may be BAD for POTUS, but given the set of choices and forces arrayed against POTUS in May 2017 and thereafter, Wray and Mueller may have been the best choices from a set of worse choices.

            Researching Wray’s background will disabuse one very quickly of the notion that he’s anything less than VERY smart.

            I highly recommend that people read Wray’s background. Look for “tells” of various kinds. They are there. To me, they are reassuring that Trump made a good choice.

            I think Wray was a cunning pick. Whether he remains the best pick after the mid-terms is a DIFFERENT question.

            Rex Tillerson was a good pick, but Pompeo made an excellent replacement. This is a TRUMP PATTERN.

            Trump does not have loyalty to gold when PLATINUM becomes available.

            Wray was an excellent pick at the time, in part because he had to sail past the black hats, which he did, but then needed to turn against them, which he also did. (Note that this has implications for Radium Rod.) But is Wray STILL the best option? Is he now capable of going NEXT STEP against the bad guys?

            To me that is an open question. Wray might be. I see SOME evidence that way. I also see SOME evidence the other way.

            So let me ask this…..

          Wray did have to get past the black hats – which he did easily. I remember at the time that I felt Trump’s wisest course of action to soothe the post-Comey situation was to appoint somebody who would not get much opposition – and Wray filled the bill nicely. But it also needed to be somebody who would not protect McCabe if there was nasty stuff – and again – Wray was perfectly predictable there. He’s a straight shooter – he would do the right thing.

            If that’s the case, Rosie’s recommendation of Wray makes sense. Rosie does NOT want to bail and come clean with another black hat in charge of FBI, but he knows which white hats appear dupey enough to skate past the black hats.

                Subject: From Bill Ivey

                Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens United/Koch Brothers big money in politics. Silly us; turns out that money isn’t all that important if you can conflate entertainment with the electoral process. Trump masters TV, TV so-called news picks up and repeats and repeats to death this opinionated blowhard and his hairbrained ideas, free-floating discontent attaches to a seeming strongman and we’re off and running…..

                ……but what we are dealing with now is dead serious. How does this get handled in the general? Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I’m certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.

                Rubio’s press conference yesterday AM was good and should be repeated in its entirety, not just in nibbles. I will attend the Clinton fundraiser here next week but as I can only afford the low level of participation may just get to wave without a “hello.”

                I fear we are all now trying to navigate a set of forces that cannot be simply explained or fully understood, so it is and will reamin interesting!

      Very true. But we have to remember what was known when these decisions were made. Not what we know now.

      For example, the Strzok Page texts were first discovered by Horowitz at the end of July, 2017. Wray was confirmed Aug 1. And all the Page Strzok texts which revealed the membership of the small group were not uncovered until Aug, or after.

      Before that, it was possible to believe that Comey and McCabe were the problem. So, you just get rid of those two, and a placeholder like Wray would be fine.

      By the time they realized that there were huge problems in the FBI with the entire top leadership being corrupt, they had spent 2 months getting Wray confirmed, and were stuck with him.

      These are matters that we seriously know very little about and yes, the nitty-gritty details make the difference.

      We are living during a very unique time in the history of our country and more importantly we are witnessing Donald J. Trump as President.
      From this person’s perspective, all bets are off as to what is the norm, what to expect with the Kabuki theater, the deep swamp, etc.
      At some point, it does serve us well to wait, watch and listen to our leader.

If that were the case, then it would be clear that Wray could have very little to no hand or knowledge in the investigation of the investigators. This is where IG Horowitz and Huber come in. The reporting structure of Huber directly to Sessions is highly unusual and very secretive.

    This arrangement with Sessions, Huber, and Horowitz sidesteps the DOJ and FBI in its entirety. The criminals aboard Con-Air meanwhile fly blissfully to their destination.

It certainly looks to me like a lot of these people deserve LONG stretches in a Supermax prison along with fines of a severity so as to leave them bankrupt and penniless. Most of them should never see the light of day as free people again so as to make future bureaucrats understand that the costs of an attempted coup are just too high to risk.

        If we can keep House and Senate Republican, President Trump is going to need an American George Smiley because it certainly looks like we’ve had more than our share of Bloody Bill Haydons in the FBI and DOJ.

    I think The Donald’s conversation with Rosenstein on Air Force One a few days ago went something like this: Rod–I have the goods that on you and all the corrupt bastards in the prior administration–from McCabe, who already is facing criminal prosecution, all the way up to the top. I am taking them down. I am, however, giving you the unique opportunity to choose…to choose between being part of the cabal that will soon be exposed as the seditious criminals they are or being a martyr–the one tragic hero among the scumbags that eventually chose to do the right thing out of duty for his country by exposing them. I won’t demand the immediate declassification of documents that would directly expose you and will allow you to stall Congress in their demands of the same IF you work with me to overturn every stone under which your conspiring former colleagues continue to hide. Every stone. In or out? Something like that…and that is where the situation with Mr. Rosenstein is now, and I am thinking/hoping he chose martyrdom for the sake of his country, if not his own skin.

      Congress MUST do this or they no oversight of their creation. Their creation effectively becomes its own Branch of Government. This is unacceptable.

      If Congress continues to allow this then The People are being subjected to a lawless rogue government which will require alteration or abolishment.

          Don’t get scared, but the following is just the segment involved in the Christine Blasey Ford event:
          Deep State Operation? – Connecting the Dots
          1. Monica Lee McLean, lawyer, 24 years DOJ/FBI, lifelong best friend of Ford, rogue McLean was spokesperson for fired rogue DOJ SDNY US Attorney Preet Bharara, a former staffer for Chuck Schumer, Ford coached McLean on how to take polygraph to apply for DOJ/FBI, Did McLean recruit and coach Ford?
          2. Michael Bromwich (pro bono atty for Ford) former Inspector General DOJ/FBI, lawyer for fired former Deputy Director FBI Andrew McCabe, both part of anti-Trump rogue group along with rogue David Laufman et al
          3. McLean’s lawyer is rogue former DOJ Deputy Asst AG David Laufman who helped oversee Clinton email server, Russian collusion delusion probes, taking out Gen Flynn
          4. Ford heads Stanford CIA Undergraduate Internship Program
          5. Ford’s father Ralph Blasey, Jr. works for the CIA
          6. Ford’s grandfather Ralph Blasey (the first) worked for the CIA
          7. Ford’s brother Ralph Blasey III worked in BakerHostetler which hired FusionGPS located in a building with 3 black ops CIA companies Red Coats Inc., Admiral Security Services and Datawatch.
          8. Debra Katz, Ford’s lawyer recommended by Feinstein, represented clients from Clinton and Obama administration, also represented Julie Swetnick in a sexual harassment lawsuit against New York Life in 2010
          9. Plaintiff lawyer David P.R. Symes worked at Perkins Coie LLP, Portland, OR in Julie Swetwick v Webtrends in Oregon lawsuit, also at Perkins Coie is Marc Elias who represented Hillary and also hired FusionGPS involved with Chris Steele Russian Dossier.
          10. Fired rogue former FBI Director Comey confidant James Baker met with Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann in September of 2016, a few weeks before the FBI obtained a FISA warrant.
          11. Ricki Seidman, Ford’s political consultant lawyer worked with Clintons and in Obama administration, major far left donor fundraiser activist operative

          12. An Aug. 11, 2009, release by the Southern District of New York lists Jim Margolin and Monica McLean (Dr. Ford’s lifetime friend) as FBI Public Information Office contacts. Additionally, a 2009 CNN article describes McLean as the spokeswoman for the FBI’s New York office.
          Media references to McLean appear to suddenly dry up after 2009. Any references to her work history disappear from this date until her retirement in 2016. References to her former spokesperson partner at the FBI, Margolin, continue to this day—including his statements in relation to the Prevezon case and former personal attorney to Donald Trump, Michael Cohen.
          Russian holding company Prevezon, which was accused of money laundering, was represented by Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya who hired the law firm BakerHostetler for legal representation in the case. BakerHostetler then hired Fusion GPS—best known for producing the controversial “Steele dossier“–to uncover information regarding financier Bill Browder.
          The Prevezon Case was prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of the Southern District of New York (SDNY) which granted permission for a “Significant Public Benefit Parole” document on Sept. 25, 2015, to Natalia Veselnitskaya, allowing her entry into the United States.
          Veselnitskaya is best known for her June 2016 meeting at the Trump Tower with members of the Trump campaign including Donald Trump Jr. Veselnitskaya reportedly met with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson before and after the meeting at Trump Tower.
          Does a person who is truly truth seeking and wants justice suddenly have a cadre of highly connected political donor fundraising activist operatives surrounding her? Why not just go directly to law enforcement and provide all your evidence to prosecute the offender like normal people would?
          Major DEEP STATE connections with Ford, McLean, Bromwich, Laufman, Katz, Seidman, McCabe, Comey, Perkins Coie, FusionGPS, Schumer, Feinstein, Eshoo, etc. Who else is involved? There will be others.
          Are all these connections a coincidence?
          Ford was coached on voice, demeanor, dress, hair, glasses and how to testify by Monica L. McLean 24 years DOJ/FBI, et al.
          Ford et al. needs to be investigated, prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
          Why did Ford’s lawyer Bromwich want to know the lead FBI investigator on the supplemental investigation. Was Bromwich checking to see if he was part of the Deep State?

          Purple — that shade — is supposedly the color of the “color revolution” that is being attempted here in the USA.

          https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-29/color-revolution-under-way-america

          The phrasing never took hold. The phrasing we use is “soft coup.” The gist of a “color revolution” is the use of non-violent disruptive techniques like protests and labor strikes, to undermine the perceived legitimacy and effectiveness of a given government. Then, when “everyone” believes the government is “not working,” “everyone” will support a new government. The first color revolution was done in Serbia in the 1990s called the “Bulldozer Revolution” under Bill Clinton (with Hillary watching closely) and many more have been accomplished since then.

          https://anarchitext.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/color-revolutions/

          From that 2011 article: “The colour revolutions are notable for the important role of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) [Edit: SOROS] and particularly student activists in organising creative non-violent resistance.These movements have been successful in Serbia (especially the Bulldozer Revolution of 2000), in Georgia’s Rose Revolution (2003), in Ukraine’s Orange Revolution (2004), in Lebanon’s Cedar Revolution and (though more violent than the previous ones) in Kyrgyzstan’s Tulip Revolution (2005), in Kuwait’s Blue Revolution (2005), in Iraq’s Purple Revolution (2005), and in Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution (1989), but failed in Iran’s Green Revolution (2009–2010).”

          As an aside, one can trace the some of the techniques — particularly the student protest aspects — to Mao’s Cultural Revolution. The NGOs of importance are the ones funded by George Soros. Put bluntly, Soros funds color revolutions.

          Hillary was Sec. of State in 2011 and some argue that she used the color revolution techniques to trigger the so-called “Arab Spring” as a means of destabilizing the Middle East which in turn led to Libya being destabilized which led to Syria which led to the “refugee crisis” etc. Some argue that these color revolutions are intended to install democracy in these countries and, thus, are “good.” Others argue that the real purpose is to remove “troublesome” governments which are not sufficiently compliant to global corporate interests. This is one theory behind the collapse of Venezula; the government was asking too much $$ for its oil; so a color revolution was started. Many data points support this theory including the current status and price of Venezula’s oil production. Others argue that the real REAL purpose of color revolutions is to weaken ALL nation states to usher in the age of the global government.

          As noted, Hillary learned the color revolution techniques while she was FLOTUS; then arguably applied the techniques when she was Sec. of State. Nuland was the key player at State, but there were many others on the so-called “Seventh Floor.” This is the “regime change” that DJT said that he opposed during the 2016 campaign and the Trump administration does not appear to be using the techniques. I was pleased to see DJT remove most of those players very early on in 2017.

          Here in the US, Antifa, street protests, campus protests and aspects of the Kavanaugh hearing look very much like color revolution techniques. Goal: if the government appears NOT to be working — a constant propaganda media narative — then “everyone” will agree we need a new government and/or need serious changes to the Constitution. Supposedly, that shade of purple is a signal to political allies that a given person is “part of the revolution.” For myself, I will note that Sen. Feinstine wore a jacket during the Ford/Kavanaugh testimony that had a thin rope of purple tracing the edging.

  34. After that abysmal Sensitivitee-ness performance, a steel door shut in my mind re: Wray. Frankly he’s too banal to rise to the level of evil since the latter requires a smidgeon of seductive power. Morally weak, mutton-jowled, allergic to vigor; a status quo agent so lazy and low-energy that the mere act of imagining change and meaningful reform induces mental exhaustion. Clearly the wrong man for an immense job. He can’t even feign a sense of gravity. Don’t you need that to scare the bad guys? His expressions, all both of them, range from stupefied village-idiot stupefaction to the lead dude for Devo moments after someone sucker-punches his Lego hat to the ground. The worst part? He’s a Trump appointee. POTUS had already been burned six months prior with the Sessions recusal and with Rosenstein already well into his seditious weirdness. In that context I’d be tempted to rank Wray as Trump’s least savvy hire.

    But wray???? After all POTUS went through with Comey et al I find it hard to believe that he screwed this up. He had plenty of folks in law enforcement that he had a personal relationship with to hire. Yet he hired wray. On RR advice? C’mon man! No way he got duped into hiring wray. There is more to this. Rudy degenova could have given him names. Why wray? Wray fired McCabe. Wray cleaned out the 7th floor. Wray did the kavanaugh investigation without dragging it out or expanding it. Wray put a muzzle on any leaks. Wray walled off laufman and bowmdich from penetrating the FBI. Wray is cleaning out the FBI by the book thru opr. Hell his #2 over ruled opr and fired McCabe. These may seem like small things but he has to be careful of the Adam Schiff when it comes to what he may be doing behind the scenes.

    If the Mueller probe was set up as a shield against any downstream investigations into the coup plotter’s actions in 2015,2016,2017–did Mueller actually know that this was his real purpose? Based on everything I’ve read about Mueller, I assume that he would want to protect his ego, his reputation, and “the institution”- no matter what he knew or what he has learned since then. I haven’t read anything that indicates that he was ever a fan of Hillary Clinton. She is NOT a lovable person. It’s hard to believe that any of the coup plotters would take a fall for her unless they are afraid of being killed. Does she really have that kind of power anymore? The DNC doesn’t even want her around anymore.

    In return for PDJT’s decision to not declassify, it possible that Rod Rosenstien has recently directed Mueller to investigate the Clinton side of Russian interference? Declassification will likely show that Mueller’s Investigation -or the original scope-had no legal predicate. Redirection of that scope by RR could save Mueller’s ego, do less damage to his reputation and to their beloved institutions. It might also redeem RR in the end. IIRC, we’ve never actually seen the original RR memo that outlined the scope of the Mueller investigation. We know that Mueller was given broad authorization to look into any additional crimes he found along the way. Knowing how self-serving these people are, I see no reason why Mueller and RR wouldn’t throw HRC and company under the bus to save their own skins.

    I think we will see McCabe indicted before the midterms. It’s a house of cards after that.

    I’ve been referring to Mueller as the fixer for months. I’m not at all happy to be right, btw. I’m disgusted.

    Mueller and Rosenstein met with President Trump to insert Mueller into the FBI to hide all of their secrets. President Trump turned them down so Rosenstein appointed Mueller special counsel the very next day so he would be able to do the dirty work from the inside.

    And the three of them, among all of the other rats, convinced Sessions he had no choice but to recuse. Although I don’t think Sessions disagreed with them. In fact, he may have been a willing accomplice.

    All four of them must go. Out. Banished from the DOJ and the FBI. Get them out, President Trump!

    Both the DOJ/fbi are just circling the wagons by a unanimous agreement of all the leading positions in the different departments within the DOJ/fbi.
    The way Wray answered those questions was pretty scary! The director of the national headquarters
    Of the FBI does not know who is responding to oversight request of the congress ! Or not know how or why they are not responding ! Who in their right mind would run a dept an go along with not knowing detail by detail
    Of what is going on in situations like this? They are either plain out dumb
    Or DIRTY! It still seems like they are playing for time. An this time they are playing for is to cover their A$$es!
    These directors should be draining
    The RATs that are still within the DOJ/fbi to save the integrity of the depts. (if any)

    I don’t know, if this leverage does not fall in favor of holding the house an senate then
    We the people will already have been hit with the MOABs.

    Question: is Lausch still collecting a paycheck? No-show gig? I just have this image of him sitting in an office, fidgeting with stuff, flicking a bobblehead on his desk, building a house with his FBI business cards, and playing wastebasket hoops.

      I spent 30+ years in the DC swamp before retiring in 2015. Below is an average working day of an average federal “employee”. Let’s say the employee’s working hours are 8am-5pm..

      8-8:30-May arrive anywhere in this time frame.
      8:30-8:45-Quick check of email to see if the boss wants anything
      8:45-10am-Go get breakfast and eat at desk while checking social media on personal phone.
      10am-11am-Check preferred news/sports sites online/recheck social media/chat with co-workers getting office gossip
      11am-11:30-MAYBE reply to a few emails and voice mails, apologizing for not getting done what the employee was supposed to get done and citing heavy workload as an excuse.
      11:30-1pm (2pm on Fridays) Eat lunch/run errands/meet your paramour, etc.
      2pm-4pm-MAYBE some actual work gets done here.
      4pm-5pm Recheck news sites and social media, chat with co-workers.
      5pm Go home. Rinse and repeat the next day.

      This is NOT an exaggeration.

        Excellent breakdown.

        One concern: “2pm-4pm-MAYBE some actual work gets done here.”

        Now that would be post-lunch work time, which significantly factors into Real Productivity.

        Also, this sheds some light on the assertion that the State Department made a couple years ago that it would take 147 years to deliver Clinton’s State emails. Looks like the math adds up.

    Sundance said this about 6 weeks ago:

    Everything is on hold until midterms. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G

    This has been the goal of the enemy since PDJT got elected. Delay, deny, deflect, everything at any cost. And they have been very, very effective.

    My gut tells me there’s a “deal’ whether spoken or unspoken, that, prior to mid-terms, Mueller holds any report if PDJT doesn’t declass
