Proceed With Caution – Media Reporting ODNI Dan Coats Possibly Being Replaced…

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, ODNI, was created post-9/11 at the recommendation of the 9/11 commission. The purpose is to serve as the central hub of intelligence information, gathered by multiple intelligence agencies, to insure equal distribution to all elements of the intelligence apparatus.

Due to the structure of the ODNI, the cabinet member filling that position has an important role in: (a) knowing what each intelligence agency is doing; and (b) sharing intelligence operations and outcomes, beyond the originating agency, to those national security offices who may have an operational need/interest in cross-agency information.

President Obama saw the ODNI structure as a problem. The ODNI would know what each agency is doing. The structure of the ODNI means corrupt CIA, State, DoD and/or DOJ and FBI cabinet officials couldn’t keep secret intelligence operations hidden from review by alternate officials.  The structure of the ODNI was a risk.

President Obama together with Donilon, Holder, Emmanuel and Jarret, solved this problem early on by placing an abject idiot named James Clapper into the position of ODNI.

Yes, James Clapper was purposefully put into the position due to his lack of competence. Clapper’s stupidity was a purposeful asset asset for the corrupt -politically motivated- officials that President Obama placed into the intelligence apparatus (ex. Brennan, Holder, Comey, Clinton, Panetta, Carter et al).  Cue the audio/visual evidence:

.

Oh, there are dozens more examples, but you get the point!

Now….

President Trump placed Senator Dan Coats into the ODNI position, and many critics of Dan Coats have surfaced as a result of various declassification requests that appear to have stalled in his office.  Some of the criticism is valid, some, notsomuch.

It could be true that Dan Coats is part of the aggregate deep state problem. However, there are both Pro and Con examples of ODNI Dan Coats on both sides of this argument.

(1) Dan Coats declassified and publicly released the April 2017 FISA Court opinion of Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer. At the time there was no-one looking for that very serious criticism of how the Obama administration weaponized the FISA process and abused the FISA court. ODNI Dan Coats could have easily kept that 99-page report classified and hidden in the vaults of the deep state.

(2) You might remember the aftermath of President Trump traveling to Helsinki, Finland, for a meeting with Vladimir Putin. The media and former Obama intelligence officials were at the apex of their “Russia Collusion/Conspiracy” claims. The day after Brennan, Yates, Comey and Clapper went media crazy with the anti-Trump fuel, ODNI Coats arbitrarily declassified and released the FISA Application used against Carter Page. That release supported President Trump and immediately crushed the resistance narrative.

At the time of the FISA application release, SATURDAY July 21st, 2018, everyone was so caught up in the substance of the explosive information that no-one stopped to ask: hey, wait, where did this come from and why are we getting it? At the time no-one was looking for the FISA application and it would have been very easy to keep the highly classified document hidden. The declassification and release appeared without anyone really asking for it.

So, it’s possible that Dan Coats is keeping stuff hidden that would disparage the institutions; however, it is also true that Dan Coats has released stuff that does exactly the opposite.

All of that is said to remind everyone we should pause before jumping to conclusions about media reports of Coats demise that originate from Axios and then spread through the media bloodstream – Fox News example. There is always a possibility the anti-Trump media is just trying to stir stuff up.

Remember, the Lawfare resistance is connected to more than just currently employed, and consistently corrupt, DOJ and FBI officials along with their political allies.  The Lawfare resistance is heavily associated with their media cohorts and fellow travelers.

DC is a very deep swamp.

      We shouldn’t be at all surprised at just how deep institutional loyalty actually is. In DC insider cultures have developed over decades with the intelligence and enforcement agencies being particularly devoted to developing rigid loyalty codes that place loyalty to the institution over loyalty to the country. What happens in these organizations is that people working there confuse loyalty to the institution with loyalty to the country. For them the institution **is** the country—everybody else (including presidents) are just place-holders.

      • You know Amy2, I am pf two minds on former Secretary Alexander Acosta. On the one hand, I think he’s being unfairly singled out for blame because the Left hates President Trump and the media will do anything to tie the President to Jeffrey Epstein. On the other hand….

        Why were prosecutors so reluctant to actually go to trial & try the case? Is the evidence they had insufficient to get a conviction? Alex Acosta says his office got involved because FL State Attorney Krischer was going to let Epstein walk with no jail time, no registration as a sex offender & no restitution paid to victims.

        Acosta says his office forced Epstein to plead guilty, spend 13 months in jail, register as a sex offender & pay restitution to his victims – that that was the best outcome they could achieve … because they were afraid to roll the dice at trial.

        Let me get this straight; we have federal prosecutors who are afraid to try cases in court? I would submit they’re in the wrong line of work, then. Only when government lawyers have accused suspects without the financial means to vigorously defend themselves will they go to trial?

        They were afraid of Epstein’s wealth & ability to hire top lawyers so they didn’t want to try the case in front of a jury? With 40 children as his victims? I’m sorry but EVERYONE involved in the previous case failed. They surrendered & gave up before the battle even began.

            Epstein is a very wealthy, well connected man. The law works differently for these guys. Maybe the girls who were witnesses had problems with their credibility, like drug use, or maybe some of them did not want to testify.
            He is a charming manipulative sociopath. He could charm a jury and convince them that these girls were trying to extort money from him or that they had emotional problems, any little doubt and he would walk free. Like O.J.
            That is what a prosecutor has to deal with, and letting him plea to a deal was probably better than taking a chance on uncertain testimony from girls who were malleable enough to be turned into prostitutes.They were up against a real player.

              Somewhat agree. People who have no understanding of the criminal justice system don’t ‘get it’; I predicted O.J. would get off, and wasn’t surprised at the verdict. Not because he was rich and famous, although didn’t hurt.

              Because our system, as set up makes it HARD to convict people; it SHOULD be hard.
              You have two extremes; A system where you convict the guilty, 100% of the time. But, you also convict some who are innocent.

              Or, a system where SOMETIMES the guilty ‘get off’, in order to minimise the chances of convicting the innocent.
              Our founders chose the latter. Hence, all criminal trials come down to 3 things;
              Burden of Proof, which is on prosecution.
              Admissable evidence.
              Reasonable doubt.
              The State has the burden to prove, with admissable evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant committed the crime.

              As someone who HAS been through the system, I actually had a great deal of respect for the system, before all this.
              In my experience, I was accused of things I wasn’t guilty of, and ‘got off’.
              I was accused of things I DID do: sometimes I ‘got off’, and sometimes,…not.
              I had,RESPECT for the criminal justice system, based on my experience.
              Not any more. The system is corrupted, and thats a damn shame. Like our public education system, our criminal justice system was once the envy of the world.
              Now, its a sick joke, and I am unsure Barr can fix it.

The same former President Clinton traveling the globe, as a goodwill ambassador on behalf of Indonesia tsunami relief & Haiti earthquake relief, with President GWB’s Dad & former President George H. W. Bush.

              The case against Epstein & his associates had 40 girls – CHILDREN – documented victims of child sex trafficking and they let the leader of this horrific sex crime syndicate skate. That should not have happened.

          • frank field– You ask, “…and out of the forty fathers of the daughters? Not a single one dispatched justice on Epstein. Not a single one.”

            Sadly, there weren’t too many of those 40 girls who had ‘fathers’ in their home life. Some were living with a single mom; some were living with a single mom and her boyfriend, who was abusing the girl; some of the girls were in foster care; and some were actually homeless.

            This deviant Epstein preyed on girls who were living on the fringe of society; girls nobody really paid any attention to, didn’t care if they were out late, or if they were flying to the Virgin Islands on a school night… The girls weren’t from happy, wholesome, healthy families– and that was another obstacle for the prosecution.

            Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr had PIs following these girls around; the girls were so paranoid about being followed, because Epstein had told them that ‘he owned the police in Palm Beach’, and that he could have them or their loved ones killed, if they said anything. Dersh and Starr had assured Acosta that they’d drag anything from drug use to abortions in the girls’ past, to use at trial. Heck, at that point, more than a few of the girls didn’t want to testify at all, against Epstein. Out of the dozens of victims, Acosta only had 3 or 4 girls who were willing to go to court and be publicly named as one of Epstein’s ‘prostitutes’… Labeling the girls as prostitutes was just more of the nifty lawyer-ing that Dershowitz, Ken Starr, two former U.S. A.G.s, and a cadre of assorted other high-powered attorneys that comprised Epstein’s legal dream team’s ‘slut shaming strategy’.

            It was an uphill battle, and Acosta thought they might have a 50:50 chance of conviction, if the case were to go to trial. And, when he could get the jail time and sex-offender-registration, as a guaranteed outcome against Epstein, he took it. And, yeah, Acosta ran the offers up through the DOJ, where they were either accepted or they were shot down… He was more the negotiator/broker of the deal than the prosecutor. Regardless, it was still a more severe outcome than what the local DA had in store for Epstein. It was an awful outcome for everyone except Jeffery Epstein and his pack of attorneys. They did quite well.

    None of us casual observers can possibly know what is really going on. All we know is what we hear in the media (useless) and what we read on the internet (mostly useless, except right here). Even the very best and most reliable sources are mostly speculating on what may be going on. Even after all is said and done, there will be no way of knowing if what ends up in the history books is actually true. Very frustrating, indeed.

      Before that could happen, all of the principals and we would have to be dead and buried. Perhaps a quarter century hence filmmakers with real guts might actually get a mini-series on the level of HBO’s “Chernobyl” (2019) past the censors … but I very much doubt it.

      ABC’s “The Path to 9/11” (2006), an outstanding, highly rated two-part dramatization based on the official 9/11 Report, was a fluke. It aired once, over the strenuous objections of former President Bill Clinton and other Democrats, before vanishing, NEVER to be re-aired or released on video.

      Writer/producer Cyrus Nowrasteh said that the “stalled release” was not due to lack of interest but rather political pressure, telling the Los Angeles Times in 2007 they were protecting Bill Clinton’s presidential legacy and shielding Hillary Clinton from criticism during her 2008 presidential campaign.

        The quickest way to clear out room in detention centers is mass deportation. I was hoping President Trump would have started these deportations as soon as he started the clock on Pelosi’s 2 weeks. The argument could have easily been we needed the room at the detention centers NOW so while you in the House were playing games, I was making room. That would have been perfect.

      Alan, read back to President Wilson, and it will blow your mind.

      I have come to the conclusion that the American public was only able to overwhelmingly vote for and install the following presidents since WWII:

      Eisenhower
      Nixon
      Reagan
      Trump

      Kennedy’s father bought him the presidency, so IMHO he does not really count…even though he was an outsider.

      Lincoln was one of the first; however, since I have not studied presidents between Lincoln and Eisenhower in depth other than Truman, FDR, and Coolidge, I do not want to make a definitive statement about any others.

      In other words, the deep state has appointed all of the others. And take a look of how many had attempts or success of being taken out one way or the other.

    These are significant examples.

    I had to go back and search for what made me turn sideways on Coats, because I remember being so grateful for these moves that SD recounts. So it was almost precisely a year ago — Coats gratuitously countered Trump on whether Russia “meddled” in our election. It stood out, because Coats inserted himself to contradict PDT right on the heels of a Trump/Putin press conference, in which Trump was less than outraged. So it seemed particularly meant to undermine the President — and it seem calculated to ensure the preferred narrative stayed the consensus. It was perplexing, because we’d sized up Coats as a “white hat.”

    If this is true — Coats is on the way out — one thing we might bear in mind is that some of these players may not be black hats but aren’t crusading white hats, either. Meaning, they want to do the right thing, and can be counted on — up to the point it hits their wall. For Coats, and possibly others, that wall may be driven by small “c” conservatism for preserving some aspect of the status quo (e.g. the institutional preservation SD has educated us on). Maybe “Russia meddling” is Coats’ line, which would make sense, because that’s the jenga piece that brings down the whole thing. Coats may have just wanted FISA reform, some slaps on the wrist, and a good house cleaning. Sunlight on the real origin may be a bridge too far.

    Under this theory, if Coats indeed is being handed his hat, it would seem to be a really good sign; because it would imply Durham/Barr aren’t satisfied with stopping short of exposing the real origin, ie, the Russia meddling lie.

    Coats doesn’t seem like a villain. He just may not be a wolverine. And if we’re getting to a point where only wolverines can hold the key slots ….. maybe we’re getting to LIGHTER time!

    The Axios article seems to have been written around the time the media began celebrating their successful media driven resignation of Secretary Acosta. Maybe the provocateurs of the so called “Resistance” are going to concentrate on attacking and removing all of POTUS’s Cabinet members with faux scandals and leaks. If so, the WH might have to order more swords.

    “…according to five sources who have discussed the matter directly with the president.”
    This sentence would be very concerning if it’s true which makes me think 5 is an amateurish attempt to create unjustified concern about large groups of anti Trump leakers and dissenters surrounding POTUS.

      Hmmmm. If we look at PT’s original cabinet secretaries, what do we see? His picks or Preibus’ picks? People on PT’s agenda? Against him?

      Donald Trump has a forty year history of having 40 to 50 consultants per project all over the world. Some who were or were not on his side.

      However, he got most of his intended projects built.

      How does that square with what he is contending with today?

      I do not believe he cares with whom he is dealing, because I believe he knows exactly with whom he is dealing. Friend or foe…confirmed or if fired, as he says ‘acting’ because ‘acting gives me more flexibility’.

      Did you all remember that phrase? Maybe there is a method to his madness…put in place vulnerable but effective secretaries. If they fail, then he has more flexibility with others to step up. AND, PT exposes their ties to the deep state…enemy combatants.

      Kinda like Obama stating to Medvedyev…”After my next election, tell Vladimir I will have more flexibility.”

      Except, in this case, Donald Trump, President, is using this flexibility to save America..not kill it.

    Coats release could be in support of PDJT or it could be to defuse the the resist movement to remove the lawfully elected President (irregardless of who was in office). At that point we do not know where Coats loyalties are at.

    Next major action involving Coats was PDJT removing Coats from releasing authority of all classified evidence in Spygate, Mullergate and any other ,,,gate involving the 2016 election.
    If PDJT believes Coats to be an ally this action removes Coats as releasing authority to insulate Coats from having to make decisions on what to be released.
    If PDJT believes Coats is not an ally this action removes Coats as releasing authority to speed up and broaden the evidence declassified.

    Point is PDJT’s decision cuts both ways. PDJT keeps his rivals guessing which is why the MSM is speculating on Coats now.

    James Clapper Bio (culled from Wikipedia)

    JAMES CLAPPER
    -Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the University of Maryland in 1963
    -Master of Science degree in Political Science from St. Mary’s University, Texas in 1970.
    -Brief enlistment in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, where Clapper served as a rifleman and attended the junior course of Platoon Leader Training
    -Transferred to the U.S. Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps program.
    -In 1963, he graduated as a distinguished military graduate from the University of Maryland and was commissioned as an Air Force second lieutenant.
    -He served two tours of duty in Southeast Asia where he commanded a signals intelligence detachment based at a listening post in Thailand’s Udon Thani Province, and flew 73 combat support missions in EC-47s, including some over Laos and Cambodia.
    -Later, he commanded a signals intelligence (SIGINT) wing at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland, and the Air Force Technical Applications Center, Patrick Air Force Base, Florida.
    -During the Persian Gulf War, Clapper served as Chief of Air Force Intelligence.
    -Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in November 1991 under George H. W. Bush. While serving as DIA director, he oversaw the transformation of the National Military Intelligence Center into the National Military Joint Intelligence Center.
    -He also launched an initiative to reorganize intelligence analysis by specialists in enemy weapons rather than specialists in countries and regions. The initiative failed because it created functional stovepipes which “reduced the coherence of the analytic effort”, whereupon Clapper decided to restore the original organizational structure using strong regional elements.
    -Clapper retired from active duty as a lieutenant general after thirty-two years of service in September 1995.
    -In 1996 he was a member of the investigatory inquiry into the Khobar Towers bombing, which killed 20 people, including 19 American servicemen.

    -There is a glaring 6 year gap from his retirement in 1995 until 2001

    -He then spent six years in private industry, including two years as president of the Security Affairs Support Association, an organization of intelligence contractors.
    -In August 2001, he was named as the director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (later renamed National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency) where he served until June 2006.
    -From 2006 to 2007, Clapper worked for GeoEye (satellite company) and was an executive on the boards of three government contractors, two of which were doing business with the NGA while he served as director.
    -In October 2006, he began working as chief operating officer for the British military intelligence company Detica, now DFI and U.S.–based subsidiary of BAE Systems.
    -He also worked for SRA International and Booz Allen Hamilton.[25]
    -Clapper defended the private sector’s role in intelligence-gathering in his 2010 confirmation hearings telling the committee, “I worked as a contractor for six years myself, so I think I have a good understanding of the contribution that they have made and will continue to make.”
    -For the 2006–2007 academic year, Clapper held the position of Georgetown University’s Intelligence and National Security Alliance Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Intelligence.[27]
    -While teaching at Georgetown, he was officially nominated by President George W. Bush to be Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USD(I)) on January 29, 2007, and confirmed by the United States Senate on April 11, 2007.[28] He was the second person ever to hold this position, which oversees the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency (NSA), and the National Reconnaissance Office. He also worked closely with DNI John Michael McConnell.[29]

    “McAleenan came under fire last month after officials and other sources publicly, and privately, accused him of leaking details of planned ICE deportation raids. The report in question, which was published by Washington Post immigration reporter Nick Miroff, said the raids would take place before dawn in major cities.”

    “A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that McAleenan traveled on a government plane to the border with Miroff less than 24 hours before the story was published. The source also said that when the raids were in a planning phase, McAleenan was opposed and even ordered Morgan to call off the operation — though Trump told him to proceed. The president, though, put the operation on hold after the leak amid talks with Congress.”

    Ordered the raids off? Insubordination?

    That PDJT has survived this seemingly unending cavalcade of self-interested backstabbing posers is a testament to his resilience, high intelligence, and unusually high tenacity.

    IMHO, Sundance’s advice that we should “proceed with caution” re. forming our opinions about Coats can be inferred as some level of confirmation that Coats is quite possibly another in that cavalcade of posers who cannot be trusted in all situations to support the President’s righteous actions.

    Sources told Fox News that Trump spoke to two people in the past week about the job. Among the candidates he is considering are Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Fred Fleitz, who previously served as chief of staff to National Security Adviser John Bolton.

    Trump raised the possibility of the job with Fleitz as far back as February and asked if he was interested but did not offer it to him officially. It’s unclear how many other potential candidates may be in the mix.”

    There was [David Lauffman?] barely beating Rodgers to the FISC court to raise the alarm… who then promptly resigned/retired with his “reputation” safe & in tact, pension secure.

    Possible DL’s effort was to set up Rodgers for the incoming fall. It’s likely a bigger part of why Rodgers went to PDJT… for self-preservation. He saw the frame-up coming straight for him. It was his best shot at protection. The attempt by the other intel heads to get him fired just after- maybe retaliatory, or just part of the plot.

    Either way, Rodgers job was now secure by doing so, & couldn’t be blamed for. He left the NSA later, but on his terms.

    So if that was strike 1 or 2, in necks they attempted to hang the FISA abuse on… Coates needed to get it out in the public realm ASAP, to not be next. Maybe added job security/life insurance too.

      There was [David Lauffman?] barely beating Rodgers to the FISC court to raise the alarm… who then promptly resigned/retired with his “reputation” safe & in tact, pension secure

    It’s entirely possible that the cabal is slick enough to plant a guy like Coates and give him permission to produce such documents like the ones you mention, knowing they will not look good for the cabal, but the cabal allowed them specifically because they knew the current strategy was a loser so they let Coates appear to quash the issue so he gains the trust of the enemy. Or at least confuses the enemy enough to not fire him right away. Therefore prolonging the amount of time it takes for VSG to purge the bacteria.

    I’d say a morte apt description of the ODNI is ‘supposed’ to know what each agency is doing. I’ll even agree that the ODNI is knows what the agencies are doing in the general but no outside bureaucrat will ever have an in-depth knowledge of what each of the agencies does. Not even the various career bureaucrats in each agency know the depth and breadth of other divisions’ working – need to know and compartmentalization.

    It’s a 2-edged sword but that’s the only way it will work.
