It’s Deja-Vu All Over Again – The Ukraine Effort is Simply “Obstruction 2.0″…

[Background] As I’m wiping down the white-board to outline the corrupt purposes, intents and connections, suddenly it becomes obvious. The Ukraine story is Obstruction 2.0.

To assemble a quick elevator explanation of the Muh Russia obstruction construction, and to better understand the end goal of the political objective which encompassed the use of the FISA court, CTH previously said:

To get impeachment, they needed obstruction. To get obstruction, they needed an investigation. To get the investigation, they needed evidence. To change dossier from oppo-research to evidence they needed a FISA. To get a FISA they needed a target. The target was Carter Page.

While assembling the more recent deployment of Adam Schiff’s Ukraine story, I recognize something familiar:

To get impeachment Schiff needs obstruction.  To get obstruction, Schiff needs an investigation.  To get an investigation Schiff needs evidence.  To change political innuendo into evidence, Schiff needs a ‘whistle-blower’.  To use a ‘whistle-blower’ they need a report… And guess where we are?

In the 2016/2017 Muh Russia operation we notice the same general cast of characters were involved.  •Embeds in the intelligence apparatus; •Lawfare allies -inside and outside government- constructing the narrative for media absorption and distribution; and •politicians working to utilize their constructs.

Now, remember, the Lawfare Alliance is quite smart, they purposefully use the intelligence apparatus as part of the constructed narrative because the intelligence aspect itself can act as a shield.

You might remember when Adam Schiff was making claims in 2017 about the ‘highly classified’ FISA application used against Carter Page?

As the HPSCI ranking member Adam Schiff was saying in 2017 the ‘Steele Dossier’ was not the structural evidence underlying the application (it was).  However, Schiff knew: (A) the application was hidden by its classified status; and (B) if the application did ever become public in 2018, his allied media would never hold him accountable for the 2017 lies.

When the FISA application was ultimately released, albeit in redacted form (Aug ’18), the Steele Dossier was the structural underpinning for it; yet Adam Schiff was never held accountable for the fraudulent content in the House Minority Intelligence Report.

Fast forward to 2019 and overlay this Trump/Ukraine story and what you will immediately notice is an almost identical deployment of the same playbook.

♦Obstruction 1.0 (2016 original version): Source for Obstruction narrative, Chris Steele.
♦Obstruction 2.0 (2019 Ukraine version): Source for Obstruction narrative, an unnamed “Whistle-Blower”.

♦Obstruction 1.0: Tool for Obstruction narrative, Steele Dossier.
♦Obstruction 2.0: Tool for Obstruction narrative, Whistle-Blower Complaint.

♦Obstruction 1.0: The impediment to Obstruction narrative advancement (a needed special counsel) was AG Jeff Sessions.  Solution was to force recusal.
♦Obstruction 2.0: The impediment to Obstruction narrative advancement is current Acting DNI Joseph McGuire.  Solution ongoing, hence call him before HPSCI.

[IMHO The House Intelligence Committee will likely attempt some recusal process against Joseph McGuire.  Also, if you accept this Ukraine angle was planned to roll-out, it is almost certain to explain why Schiff and the Democrats were desperately demanding the appointment of Sue Gordon.  They’ve had this operation in the works for weeks.]

♦Obstruction 1.0: narrative exploitation needed a Special Counsel investigation.
♦Obstruction 2.0: narrative exploitation now needs HPSCI investigation.

It doesn’t matter that the underlying premise is false. What matters is the ability of Schiff and team -including media- to create the illusion of possibility within their premise:

♦Obstruction 1.0: Obstruction narrative needed the premise Trump worked with the Russians etc.
♦Obstruction 2.0: Obstruction narrative needs the premise Trump worked with (pressured) the Ukranians.

Once Schiff/Lawfare create the premise and cement a false narrative; then all efforts shift to taking aggressive measures to bait President Trump into taking action that would lead to the charge of obstruction:

♦Obstruction 1.0: Obstruction narrative mostly based on Trump firing James Comey.
♦Obstruction 2.0: Obstruction narrative will advance by baiting Trump to remove Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG).

It should be emphasized the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community; the guy who accepted the ridiculous premise of a hearsay ‘whistle-blower‘ complaint, who was “blowing-the-whistle” based on second hand information of a phone call without any direct personal knowledge, is Michael K. Atkinson.

Atkinson’s self-interest:  Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD). That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

[Irony Reminder: The DOJ-NSD was purposefully under no IG oversight. In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58 page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.]

Put another way, Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

Immediately after the Carter Page FISA warrant is approved, in the period where DOJ-NSD head John Carlin has given his notice of intent to leave but not yet left, inside those specific two weeks, the National Security Division of the DOJ tells the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) they have been breaking the law.  The NSD specifically inform the court they are aware of contractors who have been using FISA 702(16)(17) database search queries to extract information on political candidates.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has looked into the FISA application used against U.S. Person Carter Page.  Additionally, U.S. Attorney John Durham is said to be looking at the intelligence communities’ use of systems for spying and surveillance.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.


If you stand back and look at the big picture, what becomes visible is the purpose for this 2019 Adam Schiff Ukraine Whistle-blower narrative to create the same situation previously used in 2016/2017 to generate Trump impeachment by obstruction.

It is an almost identical playbook.

          Yes. And think of how this would look if you took one of these cases to court.

          There is always just enough legitimacy to any of these quid pro quo deals to make it arguably legit. The scam becomes apparent when you look at the overall picture. But in a court, this requires asking a jury to consider a complex nefarious scheme, and then consider whether the pattern of otherwise legitimate financial transactions fits the overall complex nefarious scheme.

          The prosecutor has to rely on maligning the intentions of everyone involved, and all being willing participants, or at least willfully ignorant.

          Defense: just shrug and act dumb. “We hired these contractors to do “navigation” for Obamacare sign-up because they had a decent-looking contract submission.” “We hired these people to design Obamacare website because they had a good bid.” Shrug.

          The prosecutor will sound about as reasonable as when we look at clouds and describe what we see in the clouds. Tilting at windmills. Seeing conspiracies everywhere.

      “3. How did President Reagan avoid getting entrapped by an impeachment scam?”

      I would say a major reason was due to the testimony of Col. Oliver North that was held on national television during the Iran-Contra construct.

      It has been said that those sitting in the congressional hearing room, especially the nightly news anchors, knew, knew, knew without a shadow of a doubt that all their accused, whether North, his secretary, or Reagan, were guilty of something yet –

      and this is the beauty of hindsight – the American viewing public saw forthrightness, honesty, integrity in every answer Col. North gave.

      I remember one news anchor openly opining, whether he knew he was on air at the time or not I can’t remember, but he couldn’t understand for the life of him why the American people were so smitten with Col. North’s testimony, couldn’t the people see his guilt, he went on to say something about how everyone in the room could see the Col. oozing with guilt or something like that. The reaction by the American citizens. running counter to the narrative, made the politicians choice very clear – they could push their narrative and build up toward impeachment, or lose their next election.

    It is possible that the leak may have originated in Ukraine. We have someone with the pedigree of a McCain swamp monster on the ground over there and in a sensitive position.

    This phone call may have been one of those that was conducted with other persons in the room on the Ukranian side of the conversation.

    I wrote a big, too long comment on the garden rake thread and unwittingly posted it after this thread was started. Here’s the link in case anyone wants to go down that rabbit hole. Weapon sales are at stake in Ukraine and Ukraine was a topic in the Carter Page FISA.

      I’ve been thinking about the Ukraine being a topic in the FISA and it seems very interesting. It makes me wonder if we aren’t nearing end-game. One thing about the Clintons is their public modus operandi when caught has always been, “I know you are but what am I”. Bill was the “Education President” etc. Just say the opposite and have the media make it so.

      So that the globalist coup plotters came up with “Trump is Putin’s stooge” may show what they were ultimately most afraid of was the Ukraine. They knew the weapon’s sales and other corruption would come out. It is VERY damaging.. That the the Obama/Clinton team chose the “Trump is Putin’s stooge” way back when may have been as much about the being able to deal with the fallout of the Ukraine as it was with the spying.

      I say I wonder if we are nearing endgame because we are just hearing the Ukraine now. The Trump side would have known about this early on. And yet they are just letting us know about it now, when the “Trump is Putin’s Stooge” has lost it’s power after 2.5 years of exposing the corruption, the players and the media. Back in 2017, Putin’s stooge would have been effective. Today, it just calls attention to the failed Mueller report.

      That had crossed my mind as well. They set up PDJT with this phone call, to make it appear he did whatever the UNiparty is later accused of.

      But there is something *else* about the Ukraine that came to a head, on or about the time that Edward Snowden sought exile in Russia. I believe this led to the Russia *accusations* they saddled President Trump with, making it all but impossible to continue his presidency had he ventured into that “no go zone.”

      Ukraine is obviously deep swamp territory. My take is they will try to get PDJT to make a misstatement, and then they’ll release part of the recorded conversation to entrap him.

    Wow, if I was in on the coup, this fact would give me cold sweats at night. Why? Because this sounds to me like they are letting all of these people continue to operate so that they can get convictions. The coup participants current desperate measures are showing the American people, in real time, how they do it and while we were shocked the first time at the depth of their arrogance and depravity, this time the American people are annoyed. Even if this is not like a mob infiltration RICCO thing, the coup plotters should still get cold sweats at night because the American people are now angry that these psychos are wasting time and money playing games when we all want to move on. Doing a round two is exposing them all to us, especially the media.

    And that’s bad for the coup plotters. It’s like watching Betty Broderick saying it was all her husband’s fault that she murdered him in cold blood. The first time, if the media had enough control, they might have be able to convince us her husband drove her to it. Were she to murder a second husband, there is just no way to spin it that will convince anyone but a few wanna-believers.

    No amount of media control can put this genie back in the bottle. They are in quicksand, the more they fight, the faster they sink.

      So, let me get this right. The highest echelon officials of the DOJ, FBI, CIA, State Department, and members of Congress with the help of embassy staff overseas and foreign intelligence services from Italy, Australia and MI6 in the UK attempted a coup against the President of the United States and members of his family by framing him for a crime that not only he didn’t commit but a crime that never even happened. The response for the most egregious sedition in the 250 year history of the United States initiated by the Republican Attorney General appointed by President Trump is to have a federal prosecutor based in Connecticut assemble a “review team” of several lawyers, paralegals and secretarial support staff in Washington DC to assess what happened!

      I suspect (hopefully, blissfully?) that Trump’s new DNI is playing wicked mindgames with DNI staff, ICIG staff, and Schiff & Co., by SUGGESTING that Confidential & Top-Secret (whistleblower complaint & Presidential call transcript) were marked to trace leaks.

      Of course, this raises the possibility that SOMEBODY in the DNI’s office will have the sense of poetic justice to release a tagged-transcript, something to help the mole-hunt.

    Because the “deep swamp intelligence community” spies on all politicians and other leaders, if he lasts long enough PDJT may ultimately have access to congressional corruption evidence which permits their enrichment on congressional salaries.

    Can President Trump order the reorganization of SSCI?

    Listen: you can almost hear the conversation now. Trump, if you go after the SSCI then I will go along with Pelosi and call for your Impeachment. Guess who: Mitch McConnell.

    What would you do?

    To make sure that this get closer to the top I am re- posting JAS link to John Solomon’s article:

    Good read, this caught my attention:

    “Then the Ukrainians hired a former U.S. attorney – not Giuliani – to hand-deliver the evidence of wrongdoing to the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, but the federal prosecutors never responded.”

    NEW YORK!!!!!!! Preet Bharara? Schumber? Chucky? Kavaugh Plotters, Clinton epicenter.

    Also, Bharara lives in Westchester. Isn’t that where Clinton lives?

    The New Yorker profile on Preet said that Dalya is a nonpracticing lawyer and the two live in Westchester

    Question, according to heavy, Preet has a net worth of 1.5 M. That is not very much for Westchester. Any chance he is bankrolled by someone else?.

    I tell ya, just have IG look at SDNY and you found the nest of hornets.

      Here’s the problem. The American people get that the Democrats are insanely corrupt, as are many republicans as well. So while this article is going to feed the left’s faithful base and maybe even win a few converts, everyone else’s eyes will be opened wide by this story.

      I pity the left right now. They been made to grovel and sell their souls and dignity over Kavanaugh and #metoo, they were made fools by the Mueller report, they have been forced to defend men taking over women’s sports, excusing gang rape, genital mutilation and Islam’s treatment of women, post birth “abortion” and it just goes on and on… and now…

      Now you want them to swallow Joe Biden’s son ginning up war and selling weapons for cold hard cash and dismiss it away? Good luck. Biden, sniffer of little girls is not a popular guy. If I were the left, I’d throw Biden under the bus and look away as fast as possible.

    Rush Atkinson is the attorney on the Mueller team.

    Apparently, he worked at the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section at the Department of Justice. Prior to being appointed to the Muller team.

    An excellent piece on something I knew little about:

    The Real Foreign Collusion Occurred Between Pro-Clinton Ukrainians And The DNC

    At a 2017 briefing, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said:

    If you’re looking for an example of a campaign coordinating with a foreign country or a foreign source, look no further than the DNC, who actually coordinated opposition research with the Ukrainian Embassy.

    Very few people believed her.

    More here, where Elizabeth Vaugh lays out a convoluted story of the efforts to bring down Donald J. Trump… Hillary, the DNC (Debbie Wasserman Schultz), an operative named Alexandra Chalupa (who hated Paul Manafort) with aid, material assistance and comfort from the Ukrainian embassy.

    Quite a read.

    Suppose you are the Democrats and you realize Donald Trump will certainly be reelected in 2020 unless you do something drastic.

    For example, the Democrats might impeach the president as a means of mobilizing their own voter base in a lawfare call to arms, while using the impeachment media circus as a means of psychologically suppressing the vote of Trump’s political base..

    Such a risky strategy on the part of the Democrats might be characterized as trusting in the fog of lawfare war to achieve a decisive political victory. It’s what you do if you are truly desperate.

    Suppose the Democrats do decide to go through with voting articles of impeachment. When is the best time for them to do it? The spring of 2020? The summer of 2020? The fall of 2020? In the weeks just before the 2020 election?

    If the House Democrats do vote to impeach Donald Trump at some point in 2020 before the election, how will their 2020 nominee be using the issue of impeachment in the fall campaign?

    For example, if a Senate trial hasn’t yet been held prior to the fall televised debates, will the Democrat’s 2020 nominee, in an alliance with the MSM’s debate moderators, accuse Donald Trump of high crimes and misdemeanors directly to his face in the middle of a debate?


    • It’s quite obvious now that the Deep State wants to finish their coup d’etat and they really don’t care if it’s a soft or a real one. The US Government is run from the inside-out to secure multi-billion dollar secret business deals for us, and if you discuss anything, even in a secret conversation with another head of state, now we’ll simply threaten to kill you over crimes that don’t exist.

      This is very quickly spiraling out of hand.

    They are now talking about executing President trump.

    Bill Weld suggests Trump could face execution over Ukraine phone call

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who is challenging President Trump in the Republican primaries, proclaimed Monday that the president committed treason through his controversial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — adding that the punishment for treason is death.

    The statement drew a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign.

    “The media’s affliction with Trump Derangement Syndrome has driven them into an actual discussion of the proposed execution of the President of the United States,” communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News. “In severe cases of TDS such as this, immediate consultation with a physician is recommended.”

    Weld was responding to claims that Trump pressured Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden — the son of former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — and threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine as leverage. Trump has denied wrongdoing.

    “Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election, it couldn’t be clearer. And that’s not just undermining democratic institutions, that is treason,” Weld said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It’s treason pure and simple. And the penalty for treason under the U.S. Code is death. That’s the only penalty.”

    As we have seen in the past, the government has ignored the rules about full disclosure to the defense and little happens. Gen. Flynn, Enron executives, Senator Stevens and others have been illegally screwed by government prosecutors, yet it continues. Cities and states defy federal laws, where you and I would go to jail, yet no federal indictments. Because most of the soft coup characters will be tried in DC, expect few convictions. Short of a mini-revolution or something similar to the NYC Civil War violent reactions to the government’s unfair drafting of immigrants over freed slaves or citizens who could buy themselves out of the draft, it is not clear what can be done.

      Deb, apologies if this has already been posted. Would the FISC issue a FISA Warrant on the bidens, knowing they are democrats, and not connected to President Trump?
      But Rudy Guliani thankfully IS on the case:

      Some outline of the biden’s financial acumen and business arrangements from zerohedge :
      Rudy Giuliani claims that $3 million was laundered to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, via a “Ukraine-Latvia-Cyprus-US” route.
      Also listed are alleged biden china “deals”. Note allegations about Kerry’s and Bulger relatives:

      • Hunter Biden and his partners created several LLCs involved in multibillion-dollar private equity deals with Chinese government-owned entities including Rosemont Seneca Partners – an investment firm founded in 2009 and controlled by Hunter Biden, John Kerry’s stepson Chris Heinz, and Heniz’s longtime associate Devon Archer. The trio began making deals “through a series of overlapping entities” under Rosemont.
      • In less than a year, Hunter Biden and Archer met with top Chinese officials in China, and partnered with the Thornton Group – a Massachusetts-based consultancy headed by James Bulger – nephew of famed mob hitman James “Whitey” Bulger (h/t @Guerrilla_Magoo for the correction).
      • ….
      • just twelve days after Hunter and Joe Biden flew on Air Force Two to Beijing, Hunter’s company signed a “historic deal with the Bank of China,” described by Schweizer as “the state-owned financial behemoth often used as a tool of the Chinese government.” …. Also in December 2014, a Chinese state-backed conglomerate called Gemini Investments Limited was negotiating and sealing deals with Hunter Biden’s Rosemont on several fronts. That month, it made a $34 million investment into a fund managed by Rosemont.
      The following August, Rosemont Realty, another sister company of Rosemont Seneca, announced that Gemini Investments was buying a 75 percent stake in the company. The terms of the deal included a $3 billion commitment from the Chinese, who were eager to purchase new US properties. Shortly after the sale, Rosemont Realty was rechristened Gemini Rosemont.
      Chinese executives lauded the deal. -New York Post

      If the Ukrainians decide to prosecute, it’s game over for everybody but President Trump.
      It’s then out of US hands.

      And it looks as though the President has explicitly expressed his willingness to stay out of the way of any such investigation.

      It would flip their bike in a red hot hurry.

    So hypothetically, let’s suppose you have a key or critical role in getting to the truth on everything and helping to uphold the rule of law for all in this country but you opt to pause to do nothing of substance.

    So by your inaction…….

    It could then contribute to PT possibly not getting re-elected in 2020.

    Which could then lead to socialism for this country.

    Which could then lead to an economic collapse in the US and the world

    Which could then lead to total anarchy in the US and the rule of law.

    How could anyone who is intelligent and in a position to expose the truth and help to uphold the rule of law choose inaction and not see what their inaction could lead to and not just for the country but what they could be leaving for their children and grandchildren for decades to come?

    How could anyone be that blind and selfish and not see what their inaction could cause?

      Every time it looks like IG Horowitz coup-corruption report has massaged DOJ/FBI wrongdoing enough to cover for them (like before, there is “no evidence of bias…), some new dirt on hillary/obama/biden turns up. Now, allegations of scheming with Ukranian foreign government to hurt DJT’s election in 2016, diversion of IMF funds to hillary, hiding evidence of wrongdoing the new Ukranian government sent to the US State Department, and DOJ prosecuters in NY…..
      This means that the IG Report has to find some new phrases to excuse this newly-disclosed behavior, in addition to “lacked candor under oath…”
      It is really hard for the DOJ to come up with excuses. Maybe somethings like “checking account bank mistake in hillary/biden’s favor” or “ethical wardrobe malfunction”?
      So, every time something is declassified or “leaked”, it slows down the AG excuse machine…
      Maybe PDJT wants the AG and IG to “do something, anything rather than stall, so we know whether they are part of the swamp coverup, or part of the solution”?

        Oops, I forgot inventing “extremely careless” to describe wiping out 30,000 subpoenaed emails on a non-secure server the FVI agreed not to take into custody, instead of the description criminal “gross negligence” that would be used by DOJ/FBI for ordinary citizens or anyone associated with PDJT.

    Are they trying to protect Joe Biden because Biden suggested during his talk that Barack Obama was also in on the threat?

    Joe Biden made the remarks during a meeting of foreign policy specialists. Biden said he, “Threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.” Biden suggested during his talk that Barack Obama was also in on the threat.


  48. islandpalmtrees says:

    Rudy seems to confirm that Obama was involved. Reason to call for Trump Impeachment in order to distract from Biden and Obama corruption?

    Rudy Giuliani: NEW FACT: One $3million payment to Biden’s son from Ukraine to Latvia to Cyprus to US. When Prosecutor asked Cyprus for amount going to son, he was told US embassy (Obama’s) instructed them not to provide the amount. Prosecutor getting too close to son and Biden had him fired.
