      It looks like the organizational culture within our federal law enforcement bureaucracy is every bit as tribal as many local police departments where loyalty to the tribe and its members is considered to be more important than justice or doing what’s right, even in the face of great wrongs. We’ve seen examples of this before with Trump’s appointments which explains a lot about why the coup and the “investigations” have continued. What is now being formally admitted is what we suspected: there were covert decisions made to discredit and, if possible, remove DJT. What if nobody with top DOJ/FBI experience is willing to violate the tribal rules? I think it’s very possible that this is the case. Our country is in deep trouble.

          I get really tired of hearing talk radio pundits make excuses for the “rank and file”: they’ve been Amazingly Silent about this sedition and, frankly, treason. NOBODY has come forward.
          Well, the Deep State really has the goods on everybody, apparently. They may realistically fear being destroyed and their families destroyed if they come forward. Would be interesting to hear from someone at some time in the future what REALLY went on behind the scenes.

            Good Luck finding what REALLY goes on behind the scenes. New FBI recruits, and I’m sure some older ones too, are made to sign an affidavit that they WILL NOT divulge any goings-on, whether good or unlawful.

              I guess that affidavit means nothing to the D.C. staff when they leak like sieves and nothing happens to them. The point I’m making is that this affidavit stuff is just another excuse to not do the right thing, regardless of consequences. I find it funny that when Republicans are in power whistle blowers abound and are called heroes, but when Democrats are in power, they are criminals.

              They get the FBI to dawn-raid their houses, even when they have IG certification of protected whistle-blower status!

              Meaning: the corrupt FBI need to find out what the whistle-blower had and turned in, so they can prepare their defense.

              I’m not worried. The current FBI are incompetent. They are as bad as the HRC campaign. Obama’s weaponized Intel and DoJ / FBI got the Carter Page FISA, and used the 3-step expansion to get all Trump campaign’s phone calls, emails, and text messages, which they gave to the HRC campaign, and she still lost.

              How many sport teams would lose if they knew every play their opponent would make? None. HRC had all of the PowerPoint slides of the speech Trump would make for each of Trumps campaign stops. The HRC campaign knew, in advance, every Electoral College state that Trump would go to, and HRC still lost. Shear incompetence!!!

And there is no evidence Barr will do anything but let them ALL SKATE with zero justice served; his resume is one of support for big government at the expense of individual liberty, it looks like he is a statist instead of a Constitutionalist. The two levels of law enforcement are becoming both more obvious and more entrenched daily with the only response “We have conducted a thorough, and believe me when I say VERY thorough, investigation into this matter. Although egregious errors in judgement occurred we can find no evidence of systemic wrongdoing” and (shrug) whaterya gonna do, huh?
      Unless Barr fools me and states some foundational belief in Constitutional logic and does so very soon the odds are very good that the deep state will win this one.

      I still think it was the Podestas. Their job was to get HRC elected. They were the operatives, the bagmen, the problem solvers, the connivers. In December 2015, before any candidate was selected, one of John’s Wikileaks emails, in a chain bemoaning HRC’s many policy and messaging blunders and defects, includes the advice: “best strategy is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin.”

      That was their best strategy. Everything flowed from that. The Clinton syndicate had the money and will to seize the Dem nomination, Sanders be damned, and WANTED Trump to run against. They likely had their ambitious toadies throughout the Obama admin eager to be of help, looking for career advancement, open to being corrupted “for the higher good.”. Not to mention throughout the media, throughout the globalist moneyed cabal looking to influence elections for political and financial gain. And throughout the vast community of useful idiots who bought the fake virtues the Marxists were signaling.

      The notion that Obama LED this is absurd. He showed zero executive capability while holding the executive power of the United States (and in his prior nothing jobs). He was tall, dark, with a winning smile. He was a champion listener. He could make a speech. He didn’t even like the Clinton’s because they were smarter, more ruthless, and more corrupt than he. He could make America feel good about electing an African American President, thus forever putting behind us, we thought, America’s racist past. Ha! A closet Marxist useful idiot, waiting for his handlers to tell him what to do, which was to implement reverse racism and bigotry. To pave the way for Socialism.

      He wanted a Democrat to succeed him, and was eventually resigned it would be HRC. He understood he’d need to do whatever it took. Keep me informed of everything, he said. But he was no mastermind. He like the others did what they were told.

The Obamas hated the Clintons. The Clintons despised the Obamas (well at least Hillary did). Hillary needed Obama to keep her relevant after he destroyed her dream. Obama needed Hillary to keep his treasonous acts under wraps (and keep the ones he had on her with them). Neither of them was smart enough to have come up with this scheme. (Give me a break, Hillary wasn’t even smart enough to hide an illegal server in her own bathroom and O wasn’t smart enough to have fake accounts to communicate with her on that illegall server)

        Very interesting! I’d guess you’re right that the ‘Russian Collusion’ idea came from the HRC campaign, reinforced by the Steele/FusionGPS ‘dossier’ and by the phony CrowdStrike claim that the DNC computers were ‘hacked’ by the Russians. At some point the Obama White House and Brennan’s Intel operation were enlisted. It’s hard to know which came first; probably a case of ‘birds of a feather flock together’. Peter Strzok was Brennan’s liaison between CIA and FBI and later with the Special Counsel ‘investigation’, his ‘insurance policy’.

        Obama was involved at some level. The conspirators were keeping him informed, and the White House was running the ‘unmasking’ operation. Who was pulling those strings? Valerie Jarrett? /LEJ

    This is what DNC corruption gets us. McCabe apparently thought the mass media’s cocoon would protect him. Fortunately for us, there are a couple of former FBI heads who are livid and now vocal about the crap he has pulled and can provide a landmark by which the extent of McCabe’s and Comey’s actions can be judged to be out of bounds.

    This is all traceable to the Clintons–more recently Hillary. Once they achieved critical mass in the DNC, all opposition was either wiped out or turned, and anyone who wanted to play had to pay the piper. It has been a recruiting and development pipeline for brazen politicians. The civil service is apparently corrupted, as the agencies are no doubt inhospitable to conservative-leaning employees. The sick-out by the air traffic controllers is indicative of how bad it is. Put people’s lives at risk for petty purposes–yeah, that’s really patriotic. But, the mentality is endemic to these organizations. Ditto for the Education Industry.

    McCabe and Comey don’t even know why they hate Trump. That’s how &*(*(&^g disturbed this whole political movement is.

She has absolutely no clue and today SHE is the most recognizable Democrat out there. That alone should give all AMERICANS pause. She snatched Bernie’s platform, wrangled Hillary’s destiny, exploited Kamala’s Womanness, whacked Cory at the knees, outsmarted DeBlasio, dragged the DemoParty farther left, and even has made puppy dogs out of Elizabeth, Kirsten, et al Demohopefuls. Hope she does well with her $3B in unicorn bucks for the people of NYC.

            The federal government needs largely to get out of the education business. Mick Mulvaney recommended downsizing the education department and putting it under the Department of Labor. That should help to restrain the ideologues.

            BTW, this country ran much better as a cohesive nation when we started our school days with announcements from the principal and a prayer. It set the tone in the classrooms and helped to reinforce that we are one nation under God.

    McCabe is absolute proof that that criminal minds can be skillful and yet stupid at the same time. I have a hard time believing that McCabe actually deeply thought out the ramifications of what his words in this interview would have. His want of media attention overrode his common sense of DS priorities. He just couldn’t help himself. He basically messed in his DS pants.

    And Scott Pelley was a human behavior profiling expert’s dream to observe. He was ideally perfect in voice inflections, facial-eyebrows-head movements and hand gestures. It was a great performance of physical propaganda skills. Oh, he made himself look so sincere, studious and genuinely caring. His question…”do you mean the President….” (all Treepers are allowed to scream here!) Lol

    If I were to teach a class today on HBP…I would be sure to include that video in an archive for reference material.

    I just wanted to vomit all over SP’s face. Bet a lot of you did too!

    Have a great night all Treepers. It’s been great to get back on and comment again.

          Very astute observation, especially their over-inflated view.

          Arrogance and conceit often become the downfall of lies. Smugness leads to false self-comforting…and then the unraveling eventually begins because a mindset of delusional self-comfort tends to make one relax and be off guard enough to start making casual mistakes.

        Well thank you for that! Absolutely correct.

        So let’s wrap it all up in a cocoon and say…

        Skillful, clever, devious and immoral and stupid.

        Cuz truly, it’s the immoral element that is the common denominator ungirding all the rest in the numerator.

        3 biblical things come to mind:

        In the Psalms it says that God shows mercy to the merciful. It goes on to say that God deals shrewdly with the devious.

        Secondly, Christ said something rather shocking in the gospels…that being…” the sons of the world are more shrewd than the sons of the kingdom.”

        Summing up, I like Moses’s words…be sure your sins will find you out.

        Hmm…so be it. Maybe we’re getting front row seats to watch some high drama in a theater of comeuppance.

        Hope so.

        Good day!

      Yes. This is exactly why our new AG needs to immediately go after the media outlets and reporters that were complicit with FBI/DOJ officials in leaking targeted bits of info to the public by bribery and “perks”, and their counterparts within our Federal institutions. If Barr can hit the media hard – where it hurts them – and show the public that they are a lieing propaganda machine for the Democrat Party, maybe they will start to begin to act like “normal” media …..not enemies of the people.

  26. One other thing. Absolutely NOTHING was ever made about Comey’s meeting with the President where he showed the President the dossier, a dossier that Comey later admitted was uncorroborated. It could very easily be made out that Comey was trying to blackmail the President in some way. Has Comey ever been placed under oath to answer as to exactly what his intentions were in presenting the President with the dossier? Such a stunt is so irregular I find it laughable that anyone could take seriously that firing Comey constituted obstruction of anything other than Comey’s nefarious plans.

    I’m a retired Marine, mostly a reserve career, called up for OIF and saw the organization transform from a beer drinking club grappling with the last hangovers from the Vietnam era, to a pool of talent that answered the call effectively after 9-11. I did less than quite a few others but I grew to respect and love the idea of the Marine Corps as a band of brothers, a vessel that carried the blood and history of one generation of Marines to the next, an institution that was far from perfect but also justifiably famous as producing warriors who honor tradition and duty. I like to think I handed that to the next generation of Marines without doing too much damage while I was wearing the uniform.

    Watching those two men who had careers that predated the Mueller edict that bosses must come to the DC palace to be weeded out, utility in the field be damned, watching them sit there as a talking head opines that the FBI has to be burned down and rebuilt, knowing they are keenly aware that about seventy agents have given their lives due to hostile action, it just makes me sad.

    They know what they were handed, and now it’s gone forever. It’s sad as Hell, really.

    Journalism is the First Draft of History

    http://www.academia.edu/20445398/Journalism_-_the_first_draft_of_history

    “The value of journalism is also because it is unapologetic about the marriage of form and function which is its modus operandi, the narrative. Our brains are hot-wired for narrative. Before newspapers, books, or libraries, let alone the web, there was speech, and memory. Stories are easier to remember than facts, and the more relevant they are to the hearer’s context and condition, the easier they are to memorize. the telling and re-telling, over time, could and did distort the narrative, falsify it, or call on it too readily to fill the gaps in memory or to explain what memory had failed to clarify.”

    If there exists too many cumbersome, detailed facts to keep straight and memorize for the busy modern mind, it follows that the story (narrative) is remembered and passed along becoming “history” however false or distorted.

    So think about these bread crumbs and talking points below and tell me how anyone with common sense does not see this as a total frame job with a strong pattern of lawlessness, abuse and corruption that has existed for a long time.

    1. We begin with the IRS under the Obama Administration that targets tea party members

    2. We have extension abuse of the NSA database from at least 2012 -2016

    3. We have a Secretary of State who sets up an unsecured server but gets a pass by the FBI

    4. We have an FBI Director changing an earlier draft memo regarding HRC e-mail scandal from grossly negligent to extremely careless

    5. We have a Wiener Laptop with 600K HRC emails on it and no one has reviewed them all to date

    6. We have hundreds of people unmasked in the last year of Obama’s Presidency

    7. We have Maxine Waters bragging about a massive Obama Database

    8. We have accusations of hacking of the DNC server but the FBI never looks at the server

    9. We have a made up Dossier that was funded by the HRC campaign

    10. We have Nellie Ohr who worked for Fusion GPS on the Dossier, feeding it to to her DOJ husband Bruce Ohr to get it into the FBI hands

    11. We have the Dossier that is virtually unvetted by the FBI

    12. We have Bruce Ohr saying on the record, he alerted folks in the DOJ, including 2 people currently on Mueller’s SC team, that the Dossier was unverified

    13. We have the unverified Dossier as “evidence” against PT getting attached to a FISA application, without any mention to the court that this was an opposition research paper, paid for by the opposition party that was not fully verified

    14. We have a Wiener Laptop with 600K HRC emails on it that no one has reviewed in their entirety

    15. We have the FISA request that flew through the FISA court without question not once but 4 times over 12 months even though over time the knowledge of the fake dossier was more widely known and no one stopped any renewals with Rosenstein signing off on the last renewal

    16. We have a waiver, as required by law, signed by a NSA Advisor, PRIOR to the election (as stated by Tony Shaffer) so as to NOT have to inform PT he was being spied on in connection with a Russian Collusion investigation

    17. We have Admiral Rogers the then Director of the NSA coming to see President elect Trump to inform him he is being spied upon

    18. We have a meeting set up by people connected to Democrats at Trump Tower to trap Don Jr.

    19. We have another setup play by western agents who were portrayed as Russian agents, to frame Papa D to connect him with Trump and Russia

    20. We have hundreds of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page texts showing clear bias toward PT and discussing the “Insurance plan”

    21. We have a SC that has virtually limitless boundaries to investigate but never looks at any Democrat/Russian Collusion connections including the alleged hacked DNC server

    22. After 2 years of two different Congressional Committees who took testimony from hundreds of people, they find ZERO PT/Russian Collusion

    23. We have the Deputy Director of the FBI and the Assistant AG discussing about wearing a wire at a meeting with the President

    24. We have the same two players above discussing if they can get support via PT Cabinet Secretaries to invoke the 25th Amendment

    How does this not scream and demand multiple investigations and indictments?

    The key question IMO, is Barr here to uphold the rule of law for ALL or just sweep it all under the rug or possibly limit the damage to a few designated fall guys while protecting the DOJ/FBI Institutions?

    Maybe the biggest question of all is – Who orchestrated all of this?

    Time will tell but IMO the bread crumbs are telling!

    These two guys who were interviewed may have been good guys while working for the FBI. By that I mean defending the Constitution and seeking to do good on behalf of John and Jane Citizen. I wonder. Had they been working on the 7th floor of the FBI building in 2016 – 17, would they have run the risk of exposing the dirty deeds of Comey, McCabe, Baker, Priestap, Strzok, Page and others who have sold us down the river? Not one single current FBI employee has gone on the record about this criminal activity. Their careers and pensions are far more important to them than the oath they swore to work at the FBI. There is nothing the FBI or DoJ can ever do that will convince me I should even consider the idea they can be rehabilitated.

      Can’t rise to the level they did in the FBI and be a “good guy.” Doesn’t happen.

      The vast majority of federal employees are compromised by the fact that their singular concern is getting their pension.

      Seriously, spend some time with any of them and no matter how much they hate their job or realize they are unneeded, etc. they will hang on for that pension. And these are the rank and file not instigating coups people.

      If we cut the federal service by 50 to 75 percent, the improvement to the country would be unbelievable.

  42. I’m glad they at least touched on the 25th Amendment. But I wish one of these talking heads would enunciate a little more clearly the obvious intent of the provision that a majority of the cabinet may join with the vice president to declare a president “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

    This was clearly a response to situations like Woodrow Wilson’s long incapacity after a near-fatal stroke, when his wife kept his condition secret from the press. As Wilson lay in bed, unable to speak or move, Edith screened all his paperwork and even signed his name to documents without so much as trying to consult him. What if an enemy had attacked us? Did Edith approve or turn down any death-sentence appeals?

    Presumably the provision might also apply to a President who takes to roaming the grounds in his pajamas, talking to large invisible rabbits, if it becomes obvious he can’t recognize associates or tell you what year it is. But the amendment clearly does NOT mean some group of cabinet officers can just get together over drinks one evening and say, “You know, I’m sick of this guy bossing us around; let’s get rid of him.”

    To consider invoking this power because you disagree with an elected president’s policies or his personal management style — in the case of a President who’d obviously been capable of running a billion-dollar business empire a few months previous, and who showed no reduction in stamina or mental acuity — would be sedition, a palace coup, an attempt to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States. These aren’t punishable crimes?

    All these men knew that, to Putin and the Russians, Trump was an unknown quantity who might well strengthen our military and ramp up our oil and gas production — unwelcome competition for their biggest cash industry — whereas everyone knew that Putin knew that Hillary would OK a big uranium sale to Russia (or presumably anything else) if you just called up Huma and asked how many million you had to donate to the “Foundation.”

    It was Clinton and GPS Fusion who were “in collusion with the Russians” (above and beyond everything the Red Chinese and who knows who else managed to learn thanks to her insecure cell-phone use while Secretary of State) . . . and Bruce Orr told them so.

    What did this nation do to people who even gave the fleeing John Wilkes Booth a horse or a hot meal? I don’t recall that anyone said “Gee, I’m not sure a jury would convict . . .”

      The real damage these bast@@ds have done is not to PDJT, it is to our future….. if a situation as you described occurs…. it will be difficult to remove a president that truly is incompacitated or truly IS connected to a foreign power.

      The worst part is McCabe et al think this is all a game. All done because their petty egos were hurt by Deplorables choosing a loud mouth outsider rather than their buddies.
