“Muh Institutions” – With Patented Smirk, James Comey Gives Presser After Congressional Hearing…

Former FBI Director James Comey gives a brief press conference following his testimony before a joint congressional committee.  Notably, Comey references the importance of saving the ‘institutions’ (and all the corrupt interests within it) above all other aspects.

When the institutions are corrupt; and the officials within the institutions are corrupt; and there is inquiry into the corrupt activity of the officials within the institutions; then retaining the institutions is the priority.  It’s that simple.  If you take down the institution you run the risk of exposing the corruption…. So anyone associated simply demands another coat of paint.

Additionally, Comey seems to infer that the removal of Jeff Sessions is now part of the Mueller/Rosenstein/Democrat approach to frame obstruction against President Trump.  Quite simply, any action by Trump to expose the previously described corruption is viewed as unlawful obstruction.  That’s their plan, and the approach has worked so far.

Comey is scheduled to return for more testimony on December 17th. Transcripts of today’s hearing should be available soon.

    Donald Trump promised to go to war with the Establishment. So, friends, we’re at war!
    There will be casualties. Some battles will be won. Some battles lost.
    The war now drags on into its 3rd year!

      We need “rules of engagement” to fight this war. It’s about time those who agree with Trump need to take to the streets in protests. There needs to be an organized game plan and leadership in every state to win. It’s either now or never.

        @Marsha Frey: We have the men and women in the military on our side as this is really a war involving our military and the deep state.
        Add into that mix all of our vets armed and unarmed but each one of them has the knowledge to help us.

        The Antifa types have no chance because all they have is a big mouth and a bully atti9tude. They always came at you in a large group. One on one would get them a big can of whoop ass. They are misfits acting out their frustration while pretending to be on the right side.

        They are proudly displaying their flag – the same flag the Nazis used in 1933 with the same slogan in English trying to shut down free speech. They are the modern brown shirts.

        Remember Hussein telling us in 2009 that we need a civilian army as strong as the military with the same amount of budget than the military, well organized and funded.

        Here we are and thanks to Soros and Co and his funneling of taxpayer monies we have a block of hate groups active across the country. Our military will crush them if push comes to shove.

    I think we’re forced to consider it in the realm of possibility that the “small group” plan largely worked and Trump has been leveraged into a position of cooperation with the cover-up going on vis-a-vis the Special Counsel.

    I think it’s important to consider it a possibility so that we can discover objective reality in the current situation that Trump and the Republic is facing.

    Either way we’ll find out for sure within a few weeks what’s going on.

Think for yourself after researching what Barr has actually said and done rather than allowing yourself to be manipulated by emotional trigger words. Or, trust President Trump to make the best choice for what he needs in an AG right now. BTW I have researched Barr and I am now beyond thrilled with this choice. I was unaware of any potential nominee that was as big an immigration hawk as Sessions. I was wrong. Barr is just as fierce but hes also much fiestier and a well known straight shooter. He and POTUS should get along famously.

  11. So let’s see. Last week the judge held a hearing on whether the House could subpoena Comey to testify behind closed doors. The judge said he would make his decision Monday morning, the 3rd, about the scheduled hearing set for the 4th. And based on the judge’s attitude, Comey very likely was going to be ruled against, forcing him to testify behind closed doors. And then Sunday the 2nd, Republicans agreed to closed door testimony, but with a full transcript released to the public within 24 hours. And the hearing was put off until today. And with a full transcript being released, in effect it was a public hearing without the cameras. And when that agreement was announced, I commented on this site that Comey would hide behind the “I can’t answer that due to either national security or there’s an ongoing investigation.”

    Just how stupid do these Republicans think we are? And then Trump tweeting like it’s not his administration that he’s up against. Give us a break. After two years you want to take credit for the economy but not take credit for your Justice department. It doesn’t work that way. Trump is becoming just as bad as the swamp he says he’s fighting against.

    And I can already hear the comments about my post, so let me just reply to them now. Our Constitution says “We, the People…”, not “Me, Donald Trump…”. We want fealty to the Constitution and the Rule of Law. My oath is to the Constitution, not to a party and certainly to no man. In God I trust. Everyone else pays cash!

        Each person has a job. Sessions put on a great Sleepy Jeff act that lulled the media into a false sense of security while Horowitz and Huber quietly began investigations and preparations for prosecutions into everything. They were able to go unnoticed until it was too late. Sessions recusal allowed the shiney object, honey pot Mueller investigation to keep the media distracted and ensnare the plotters. It appears that Huber is close to shifting to the action phase so its time for Mueller to wrap things up. Sessions stepped down so Whitaker could step in and take control of Mueller away from Rosenstein. Mueller is done. Horowitz will drop his reports. Huber will prosecute. The oxygen will be sucked out of the muh Russia, muh obstruction narrative by real crimes and prosecutions. Achieving justice under the law takes time. Our FBI and DOJ have now been purged. Trump has gained control of SCOTUS. He has placed many great judges in the judiciary. He gained an upper hand in the Senate so he can continue getting judges in and another SCOTUS pick which is huge since the Democrats were sure theyd win the Senate. Bottom line, please stop with the low info doom and gloom. What Trump and his team have achieved in less than 2 years is amazing.

    FYI, the late Jerry Pournelle codified this institutional behavior in his Iron Law of Bureaucracy

    Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people”:

    First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisors in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.

    Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.

    The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.

      I have a counterpoint to consider. If he stepped down right now they would work even harder to destroy him. He would have no power, no ability to control anything said and done against him, and no effective voice in the media, not even Twitter. They could ban him because he’s conservative, and for that matter, because he’s for everything Twitter is against and against anything Twitter is for. They can’t ban him now because he’s President. It’s likely quite a pickle for them. If I recall right they have already come under pressure from liberals to ban him.

      Rep. Nadler wants to suspend statute of limitation laws against the President. The stated purpose of that is to prosecute him for “crimes” committed while in office, AFTER he is out of office. His “crimes” begin with the biggest of all crime in the eyes of democrats; he won the 2016 election. All of the “investigations”, I last read the count was up to 85, that the democrats want to do against him starting next month are designed to stop his agenda and destroy him.

      And if the democrats win the next presidential election you can easily expect them to UNsuspend the statute of limitations against THEIR president, but not before they hound Trump to his grave and destroy the Trump name to the point that his kids have no chance of ever being elected.

      Trump’s economic policies, among others, are giving power to the PEOPLE. And they are taking power from the elites and the beaurocracy. This is an existential threat to the elites and the beaurocracy, who all work together hand in glove.

      The eyes of the people who work and don’t look for handouts have been opened.

      We have been able to come this far this fast because of the Grace of God and Donald Trump. To quit now is to lose the republic, for all intents and purposes. Remember, the left chants “no borders, no walls, no USA at all” (if that is not losing the republic, what is?) and the democrats are pushing hard to let anyone in the country so as to get votes. And they want illegal aliens to have the vote because they KNOW they can give away enough free stuff to GET those votes. For life. Or until they run out of other people’s money.

      The left no longer hides that they are socialists. They glorify it.

      Trump is an existential threat to the left……..and the left is an existential threat to the USA. Socialism/communism fails every time. But in the time it takes to fail the elite become very powerful and very wealthy while the people become very weak and very poor. History abounds with examples.

        Well stated. PDT must ask himself “Do I, my wife Melania, our youngest son Baron and the rest of our kids NEED THIS?” Though he’s disrespected Melania, I’m sure she knew what came with her “I Do”. Women will of course and often state the opposite, but they’re often wired this way. This Country just said ‘thank-you” by handing over the House, which includes the investigation into the most sweeping and treasonous conspiracy ever faced by a democracy/democratic republic. Even though Nunes committee hit a wall waiting for Trump to fully what should wrap it. Forty (40) seats that will raise the 9th circle of hell through 2020. Among them Nadler who stated wanted to give Strzok “the Purple Heart”. Let that sink in hard. That this electorate saw fit to do what it just did is for me the tell. We’re on the way to SHTF. One day, if there’s anything left, historians will marvel at the stupidity of the American electorate. And I don’t believe Trump will be re-elected, but my family and I will again vote for him again – if he isn’t assassinated first. Now it’s all about “charisma” with Beta 0’Rourke as the example.

The Overton window is closing let alone that the normies and Neo-Jacobins of this electorate have an attention span of about 3 seconds. Seems the last hope will now be Barr who if he honors his Oath can expose every corner of this treasonous conspiracy, establish grand juries on the way to indictments and prison terms. It boggles the mind this has yet to be done with the exception of course of Lurch Mueller’s clean-up mission on behalf of his kindred Mordorian Serpents.

    “Quite simply, any action by Trump to expose the previously described corruption is viewed as unlawful obstruction. That’s their plan, and the approach has worked so far.”

    They view Trump as corrupt simply because he offends them and pulls back the curtain by speaking his mind, being unafraid, having seen all the games before and having experience counterpunching. IMO Rod Rosenstein is at the top of the list of those that felt better than Trump, and IMO RR viewing Trump as corrupt made a country changing decision by unleashing a Special Counsel on the president.

    Mark Warner’s answer to the question of why he sees Trump as corrupt (my paraphrase to the question) is linked below.

    TRUMP’S SHOWDOWN
    Mark Warner
    U.S. Senator, D-VA
    https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/interview/mark-warner/

    So, Senator, Trump comes to Washington with a very different view of the law, of the rule of law. He’s come up through business and real estate in Manhattan. He’s got involvement in about 4,500 cases, so he’s very involved with lawyers. But he’s got a very different attitude, and a very different attitude than lawyers and the government officials in Washington. Talk a little bit about that. When he comes to Washington, what is apparent, certainly from the campaign, what is apparent about his view toward the rule of law and how it differs with Washington?….

And he’d be within his rights and duty to have asked exactly this. PDT has not One (1) more mistake left. In review I offer:

Who also denigrated PDT before other admin. employees. And to think he’s been able to hide a law degree giving him such legal “expertise”. Who knew?

All concurrent “assistance” from Michelle McConnell and of course Juan McCain and other “consuhvuhtives”.

    6. Anthony Scaramucci the Long Island slime ball (LI’s full of guys like him) who lasted a hot (10) days as Dir. WH Comm. while coming off as a Fool doing it.

    7. Scott Pruitt – likely a marxist smear victim, but you’d think he’d have been exceedingly careful to avoid even a HINT of impropriety given the satanic nature of the marxists. Do people like this THINK? At all?

    8. Christopher Wray – to run the Famous But Incompetent. Does anyone in their right fkg mind believe Wray will reign in and restructure this armed proxy of the Dept. of Just-Us? If you do you’re an Idiot. I still can’t believe PDT picked this mega cuck. Obvious 30 seconds into Wray’s confirmation testimony before the senate. What is…. the Major Malfunction here?

    Now Barr who better be a PDT shining moment like Mike Pompeo. Also, wish he’d get off the Harvard train and realize how many “Hahvaahd” graduitz have profoundly damaged our Country. At least Barr did his J.D. at GWU not that it’s a huge step up from Hahvaahd. Did his undergraduate work at Columbia which is cut from the same Frankfurt school ilk as Harvard. Barr was inherited by Verizon from GTE in 2000 when they were purchased by the legacy Bell System entity (now Verizon) of merged lineage: former NYTel aka NYNEX + Bell Atlantic + GTE = Verizon where he became VZ’s general counsel. I used to work for VZ and can state, unequivocally, it’s one of the most leftist entities traded on NYSE. An abundance of nepotism, often gross incompetence (3rd levels and up) frequently based on 0 more than affirmatively acted promotions all supported by a rabidly leftist “HR” dept. I often observed close up what was at times almost surreal. Indeed, recurring revenue streams can sustain even them.

    NOT. ONE. MORE. MISTAKE. MY. PRESIDENT.
