        Wish he had included “I was scheduled to interview Hunter Biden when I was fired”. Not that it would have mattered to the left wingnuts and their media arm. I can hear them now (if they ever even report on this): “Biden has to have leeway to conduct foreign policy. Crazy, corrupt prosecutor. Nothing to see here”. Anyone read any of the other 400 pages from Soloman?

          John Soloman has reports from Hunter Bidens lawyers that affirm that. They also say Shokin was NOT corrupt and should not have been fired. Joe Bribem is trying to say the prosecutor was corrupt and should have been fired with nothing to do with Burisma. His sons own lawyers dispute that.

          Why has no one talked about Hunter Bribems actual experience that would qualify him for that job? I haven’t heard a single word on that. You know, his education, his experience, his knowledge? Without that it seems his only qualification is being Joe Bribems son. That would indicate a pay for play scheme. Which it is of course.

        The issue I am having is that Mr Firtash has a lengthly legal record in Ukraine, EU and USA. If the affidavit was sworn out, concurrently with regards to Mr. Firtash fighting extradition from Austria to the USA. It may place the affidavit around Spring of 2014.
        However, it may be anytime after. It is not clear. It could be from 2017, at the height of Mr. Firtash’s defense in Austria as Mr. Firtash came under Mueller Special Consul purview.
        With what I am reading it could also be July/Aug 2019.

        He is where I am confused, well not confused because with all the underlying political motives revolving around a decade long corruption scheme, it is very hard to tell, “What the heck is going on and what alternative motives are in play.

        How come and read this for every ounce it is worth.

        Just do a search on Firtash. It is all very murky.

        My general take away is if Firtash is as corrupt(my opinion is he is) as the USA says. If Mr Shokin was and is working with Ukraine post 2014 conflict with separatists, why was Biden looking to shut down Shokin’s investigation that in one way or another meshed with Firtash legal troubles on corruption.
        It does not add up.
        One would tend to think, VP Biden would be supporting Ukraine in a manner that supported the legal actions the USA was pursuing on Firtash at the time. Yet he was seeking to shut Shokin down.

        Read what Austria, had to say about the USA efforts to extradite Firtash back in 2914-2015.
        Then just consider, the next stage of the saga over Firtash’s extradition proceedings falls under the Mueller Investigation, it is dripping with wheeling and dealing, help us and we will resolve the legal issues on corruption charges and extradition avenues. It all flys in the face of publicly the USA was supporting Ukraine with its fight on corruption and to a larger extent the conflict with Russian backed separatists, yet behind the scenes the VP was pressuring the Ukrainian Govt to back off that very objective.

        Yet, come July 2019, Austria reverses course and agrees to extradite Firtash.

        With all the ‘Whistleblower’ news, funny that elements that are glossed over regarding Rudy’s trip to Spain and likely covert dealings with Ukrainian corruption investigation, an AG looking to get to the bottom of things that has the President’s phone call being leaked with the leaked stories convoluting and mixing into the narrative that Mr Barr may have had direct contacts with Ukrainian representatives on their own domestic(internal to Ukraine) corruption investigations as it relates to his ‘getting to the bottom of the predicate’ ALL mesh with this Mr. Firtash.

        The real story here is that IMHO, “Is that issues surrounding TDS have already flown over target and have returned to base. The jig is up hence the ‘deep state’ melt down.

My memory is not strong on this or what seemed might have something to do with the attacks to destroy Scooter Libby and all the noise surrounding the supposed “outing” of Valerie Plame. It struck me as really sketchy at the time; that we might be looking at the shadow of a common cryptic pattern of CIA and State “players” converting national service into personal wealth via foreign corporations partially or in part used in CIA related schemes. Could such a thing exist? Is there el mucho diversity in skimmery, trickerations, kickbackulation, and other double-triple secret dippings into to great big global money pot?

          New World Oligarchy. A emerging, new imperial ruling class operating as a puppeteer of elected governments of the world. Soros is a significant tumor in the distribution of this malignancy but he’s not the only malignant tumor metastasizing globally.

      My view of Barr is going downhill. The ONLY positive upside I can find with Barr is the Mueller activities. Think about it. Mueller fast tracked a bunch of cases into the court system. He wasn’t thorough, his team just wanted to pressure people into trying to get obstruction on Trump. What’s happening on all those cases in the court system? It’s certainly not going very well. Sooooo … if Barr is trying to bring criminal cases against the Ds, RINOs, etc, then it has to be done right or it’ll end up being another Mueller fiasco. That’s my one and only hope for Barr. That he’s taking the time to get everything sewn up tight. Day by day, I’m losing that hope …

        Barr is not Mueller thank goodness. Barrs seeming inaction is really just the fact that Durham and Horowitz are still investigating. Investigations should not be public. That unfairly tars possible innocent people. They are doing it the right way (hopefully).

        Also Durhams investigation has just started. The Mueller investigation was a cover for all the bad actors. They all said they could not comment or talk while an investigation ( the Special Counsel investigation) was ongoing. Some, like Comey, Brennan, and Clapper actually lied to Congress and the President about their deeds. That way they did not have to answer questions or be held accountable. Now that it is over, they have no excuse to clam up or misdirect.

        Obviously, Durham needs to finish this asap. He can’t delay until it affects the election next year.

        Trying to balance narratives about Barr and seeing next stage before reaching conclusion. Some have hyperbolic criticism, others blind loyalty. Facts matter to me so I take first four reports with a pound of salt, and wait to dig into the fifth layer where clarity begins.
        Note: President Trump was asking for Ukraine cooperation with AG Barr (per Treaty “fact”) with an investigation by Durham into the origins of the “RUSSIA”-hoax coup. That is my defense of President Trump: there is a legitimate DOJ investigation underway into election interference so the call is therefore legitimate.
        The leaks however are a crime.
        Today I feel positive about Barr, but indictments are the “facts” I want to see. If they are saving up for a big Xmas box opening spree I’ll be patient.

      Psycho Schiff. You can see it in the eyes. Beady. Rat-like.

      Consider there is indeed a rat society inside the beltway. An original research documentary was filmed in the 1940s. It’s quite stunning. Surprisingly relevant and instructive. If you haven’t seen it, you should give it a watch. It’s literally about the pathological behavior in rat society, but it’s also an analogue of human infestational behavior and pathos; a rather timely overview given the impact Trump is having on the swamp.

      Instructive analogies abound from the behavioral and social pathology documented in this film, particularly how it informs understanding criminality and social pathos.

    Hey Sundance –

    What have you heard about Hunter Biden’s replacement on Burisma’s Board of Directors in 2017? Tonight on Lou Dobbs, it was reported that Joseph C. Black, a senior personal adviser of W. Mittens Romney himself, was appointed to the position vacated by the junior Biden progeny. When one combines that with Sens. Murphy, Durbin, Menendez, and Leahy’s activities, it appears likely Mittens may very well have also been involved in sabotaging President Trump in 2016 through Ukraine. Perhaps Shokin’s affidavits are going to expose numerous Uniparty corruptocrats’ activities…..?

    Regardless, the ramifications of Black’s position at Burisma, and his relationship to the vile, repugnant Romney, cannot be understated, in my humble opinion. Of course, I would love to read your knowledgeable, well-researched opinion.

    There are four little words that Joe Biden uttered that keep ringing in my ears and they are “just ask Barack”.
    Let’s set the stage, we have the VP of the US acting in his official capacity issuing an ultimatum to the President of Ukraine to fire the General Prosecutor on knowingly false charges of corruption. He’s using a billion dollar US loan guarantee as leverage, knowing they can’t refuse the request or they’ll face bankruptcy and economic collapse. And then to solidify his threat and leave them no political recourse he throws in the coup de grace “just ask Barack”.
    Ol’ lunch bucket Joe wasn’t doing this on his own, he had the full support of President BO to use these strong arm tactics against the Ukrainian government. Joe, has by his own words unknowingly lit the fuse that leads to the powder keg the Dems have been sitting on since DJT took that ride down the escalator.
    I could never fully understand why so many Dems as well as the media were willing to destroy their reputations and the country in their efforts to take out PDJT. The picture is a little clearer today when I realize that this has been a coordinated effort to cover for the “Golden Child” and to maintain the illusion that is the Democratic Party. This was never about politics, it was never about immigration, it was never about “the wall”…it was always about survival.
    This President had the potential to take down the entire party, they knew it from day one and that’s why they have done everything in their power to malign this man. Now I get it!

  21. The Shokin statement is a pretty smoky smoking gun alright. It happens to be the most available paper-thin pretext at hand at this moment. However it serves its purpose if it opens the impeachment process. Then they’ll hop off of it in short order. Does anyone besides Last Resorters remember Russian collusion hoax? The desperation to get Trump is so overwhelming that they’re willing to throw Biden over. But the WaPo and NYT have been telegraphing Biden’s demise for over a month. They are clearing the way for Clinton imo, or Warren. Why would the Rothschilds be socializing with the Clintons in Martha’s Vineyard a few weeks ago? The Rothschilds have been using and discarding political hacks for centuries. That’s a signal the Clintons are still very much in play. Biden’s toast. Hillary is a big beneficiary.

    Months ago, I believe SD pointed out how the 68-22 Senate rebuke of Trump’s desire to remove our troops from Syria and Afghanistan was a prefiguring shot across the bow to show POTUS how the bipartisan votes could be assembled for impeachment. The recent Rino defection on the transfer of defense funds to the border wall offers is a more recent example. The Rinos are practicing open intra-party defiance. We know if a secret Senate vote was held, the Senate would convict Trump because everyone within ten feet of power hates Trump. They just can’t do it in the open. Unless unbelievable pressure is brought to bear on them. There are few elective officials in America without offsetting dirty dossiers. I don’t think you get one of those 100 chairs unless you’re compromisable.

    I think they have the votes in the Senate for impeachment. The current rush is to accomplish it before Trump is allowed to re-legitimize his mandate in an election. The powers-on-high are telling the Dems ‘we don’t care how stupid or crazy you look. Get us an impeachment process. We’ve got the Senate lined up.’ Pelosi is an extremely savvy politician. Ultimately, she will consent to full-on impeachment.

    In the 2016 midterms we lost an unprecedented 30+ Republicans and in 2020 another big swag are heading for the door. I suspect they’re being helped to the door by dirty dossiers. Those are the dossiers that will bring pressure to bear in the Senate.

    Trump is going sideways on Iran and he’s a wrench in the works of the Chinese Century (and American decline), an integral part of globalist evolution and consolidation. They want malleable Muppet-man Pence (or Pelosi) in the big chair to move forward on the delayed globalist agenda, financial collapse and WW3. The stakes are yuge,as SD says, trillions are at stake. But it’s more than money. It’s absolute global control.

    Is anyone else noticing the liquidity crisis in the repo market, Carney’s recent telegraphing of the Synthetic Hegemonic Currency as follow-on to $ reserve status and Dudley’s intimation of a politically active Fed? Asset values become ornamental in a hurry if there’s no money to conduct transactions. The system is creaking. The move to the IMF’s SDR or Carney’s SHC was to have been undertaken by now. Trump’s an extremely dangerous and costly countertrend.

    The Bankers have exhausted monetary policy. They are about to break down the traditional firewall and make a bid for fiscal policy control where there’ll be a two-line-item budget: debt service and military (to defend their global totalitarian regime). Entitlements are history.

      I think thats speculation.

      “There are few elective officials in America without offsetting dirty dossiers. I don’t think you get one of those 100 chairs unless you’re compromisable.”

      While I agree with that, I dont think you can make the conclusion that the Rs in the Senate would be blackmailed into voting to impeach. That would be political suicide, ending their career as an elected official. So given two different negative outcomes, the other being the release of some sort of negative personal info, I dont think you can assume they would choose the one that ends in them voting to impeach considering that would be a career-ender anyway.

      Honestly, I think the Dems and anti-Trumpers have lost their opportunity to establish a narrative that would provide sufficient political cover to allow Rs to vote to impeach and get away with it.

      The Dems and media are losing more credibility by the day, and are thus being increasingly tuned out by the public.
