Things, that make other things, make sense…

In hindsight it is quite clear the professional political class had two approaches toward candidate Donald Trump:

♦ Approach #1 was to eliminate him: see spygate, surveillance, FBI, DOJ and CIA operations to destroy the threat etc.; the Special Counsel Mueller investigation is an ongoing continuance of that primary approach.

♦ Approach #2 was an effort involving the republican side of the deep state apparatus, who could be deployed as a controlling influence, on the inside.  [These would be the same people who earlier constructed the failed 2016 campaign ‘splitter strategy’ to help nominate Jeb Bush.]  Ongoing decepticon turnover, in opposition to the Trump policy implementation, seemingly reflects the consequences of the secondary approach.

While in charge of the transition team, Vice-President-elect Pence relied heavily on former Bush Secretary of State Condi Rice for cabinet and administration recommendations:

Condi Rice recommended: Rex Tillerson, HR McMaster, Nikki Haley and James Mattis.

FLASHBACK – In the months prior to the September 11th, 2001 attack, Condi Rice was the National Security Adviser to President Bush:

On July 10, 2001, two months before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, then-CIA Director George J. Tenet met with his counterterrorism chief, J. Cofer Black, at CIA headquarters to review the latest on Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda terrorist organization. Black laid out the case, consisting of communications intercepts and other top-secret intelligence showing the increasing likelihood that al-Qaeda would soon attack the United States. It was a mass of fragments and dots that nonetheless made a compelling case, so compelling to Tenet that he decided he and Black should go to the White House immediately.

Tenet called Condoleezza Rice, then national security adviser, from the car and said he needed to see her right away. There was no practical way she could refuse such a request from the CIA director.

For months, Tenet had been pressing Rice to set a clear counterterrorism policy, including specific presidential orders called “findings” that would give the CIA stronger authority to conduct covert action against bin Laden. Perhaps a dramatic appearance — Black called it an “out of cycle” session, beyond Tenet’s regular weekly meeting with Rice — would get her attention.  (read more)

    Like I’ve said here numerous times before I don’t trust Pence. I instinctively never trusted Pence despite his reputation as a religious evangelical family man.

    I believe Pence is Uniparty GOPe acting as controlled opposition, poised to take over for his handlers as soon as they can get rid of Trump.

    And I continue to believe Pence is wearing a wire (digital obviously) on Trump.

    I’m sure this becoming more clear is greatly disappointing to many good people here, especially evangelicals who trusted Pence.

        I bet Session came out early for Trump just in case he won, so he could control all the corruption done at the DOJ, FBI, CIA and everywhere else…he was part of the insurance plan. Sessions hired Rosenstein and Wray. Crooks I say, all crooks!

      I’ve see no actions or reports about Pence that would make me think he’s some kind of Machiavellian character just waiting for a chance to undo President Trump. He’s done an admirable job as VP. The only way we’ll know if he’s the traitor you describe is if it happens as you’ve suggested, other negative actions come to light or he retires and shows what you consider to be his true colors afterwards, as so many have done. Until then I see no reason to disparage him with unfounded imaginative opinions.

        The hearty greeting Pence gave Hillary & Obama’s at the Bush funeral…

        President and the First lady DID NOT great or shake hands with the Pences at the funeral

        From Singingsoul:
        “…Pence also took out Flynn’s son from the transition team.
        Pence lead the transittion team that gave us some of the mistake hirings.

        Pence lead the voter fraud group. [that PDJThad to kill}
        Pence lead the Obamacare repeal.
        Pence was supposed to be the bridge between senate and WH and even had his office there.
        Has anyone observed in photos how Pence positioned himself and how he stands to pop out…?
        I do not trust him he is swamp and it was Chris Christi who brought Trump to Pence.
        Pence was a Cruz supporter guess who else was..?

    I follow the logic of the post…but I’m not following how the linked article shows anything related to Trump….it simply shows that Rice was presented w/intel suggesting we should move on Bin Laden prior to the Sep 11 attacks…that’s not some deep state conspiracy…anybody that has been around intel understands how spotty it can be and that misinformation campaigns taint the water

    I’m still trying to figure out how the strange case of Anthony Weiner fits in with all this.
    Anthony gets contacted by a fifteen year old girl, who then claims to be disgusted by the perviness of the known perv she contacted.
    The young teen allegedly writes a very politicized letter to James Comey, of all people, which Buzzfeed somehow obtains.
    The girl’s father allows the girl to show her face in the MSM (for money) but won’t allow her name to be used.
    Somehow young people who know this girl don’t start talking about her on social media.
    The same girl is allegedly involved with another underage sex case, this one statutory rape, with an ugly old guy who is a teacher but not a teacher at her school.
    The girl seems to have a father who is quite outspoken, but no mother.
    There are still unanswered questions about Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
    Anthony was threatened with federal charges of a sentence of ten years, to get him to accept a guilty plea involving jail time, for a case that normally would not involve a prison sentence.

    Somebody wanted Anthony incommunicado, and that laptop, we know it did not get wiped with a cloth or smashed with a hammer, so what about it?

    Does anyone else remember recently when Pence was asked about running as VP again and hesitated? In that hesitation Trump answered yes for him. I’ll look for the link but at the time I thought it was very telling. IMO Pence basically gave himself away and Trump let us know he was onto Pence.

      It was one of the final rallies prior to election, where Trump said of course we’ll run as a team again in 2020. My impression of the unspoken was like yours, that Pence wasn’t running again – either because he’s controlled opposition and Trump was on to him, or that he’s a cuck, more at home with the GOPe. Either way, I’d like to see him gone, unless Trump wants to keep him. I’d rather see Pence bow out and Flynn run with Trump on the 2020 ticket.

      Could be telling maybe not. Just because Pence has done an admirable job as VP doesn’t mean he accepts all of Trump’s ideas although we have no way of know that either. Only President Trump and Pence know what their relationship is like. The rest of us are just guessing.

    One more thing – I was so happy to see this here finally I got ahead of myself.

    On the issue of declassification. If Trump would declassify more on FISAGate I think we’ll find that Pence is part of the spy apparatus on Trump. I stand behind him needing to declassify ASAP and to declassify as much as possible. I think his life is at risk and this could save him.

    J.Cofer Black – GHW Bush CIA Operative, Director, CTC, 1999-2002, and thensome:

    “Private sector work (2005 – present)[edit]
    From 2005 to 2008 Black was Vice Chairman of Blackwater USA (later renamed Blackwater Worldwide, then Xe, and finally Academi), a US-based private security firm which is “the biggest of the State Department’s three private security contractors”.[24] Black resigned in 2008 reportedly after learning of illegal payments to Iraqi officials.[25]

    Black is also Chairman of Total Intelligence Solutions (Total Intel), a private intelligence gathering group. This company was created in February 2007 by the Prince Group, the holding company that owns Blackwater. Total Intel was formed by the merger of The Black Group LLC (also led by Black), Terrorism Research Center, Inc., and Technical Defense.[26]

    In March 2006 Black allegedly suggested at an international conference in Amman, Jordan, that Blackwater USA was ready to move towards providing security professionals up to brigade size for humanitarian efforts and low intensity conflicts. Black denies the allegation. Critics have suggested this may be going too far in putting political decisions in the hands of privately owned corporations.[27] The company denies this was ever said.[28]

    In January 2016 Black became an independent director of publicly traded biotechnology company Northwest Biotherapeutics (NWBO) to investigate the market manipulation of the company’s stock by the hedge fund “wolfpack”. The wolfpack and others use naked shorting of stock to drive promising young biotechs toward bankruptcy or to the point where they need to raise capital at extremely low valuations from the wolfpack themselves.[29]

    In February 2017, Burisma Group announced the addition of Black to the company’s board of directors.[30]

    Mitt Romney presidential campaign[edit]
    On April 26, 2007, Black was chosen by Mitt Romney, a Republican candidate in the 2008 United States presidential election, to head his counter-terrorism policy advisory group.[31]

    In October 2011, Black was chosen by Romney to serve as “Special Adviser” on all foreign policy issues.[32]”

    The Flashback section proposes that George Tenet was trying to get his fears about bin Laden through to George W. Bush, but that Condi Rice blocked his message. I have no idea if this is true, but these questions come to mind: Doesn’t the intelligence community brief the President almost every day? Couldn’t Tenet insert his fears into one or more such briefings?
