    Interesting pick, this is the second attempt for Ratcliffe am I right? I wonder what’s changed in the past few weeks that PDJT and Ratcliffe are taking another run at this?

      The President said on twitter, that he and Ratcliffe agreed the first time around that it would be better to wait until after the IG report. That may or may not be the case.

      I do think that now that the IG report is in and it exposed a lot of corruption in the IC, i think the case for Ratcliffe as DNI is much stronger than it was the first time around. Pretty much everyone here knew it was very strong the first time around, but for all the NYTimes Republican Senators I think it was a harder sell.

      Ratcliff withdrew his name before any hearings. President Trump said he wanted to wait until the Mueller report was completed. Not sure why that was important at the time but it gave the President time try some temporary people in that position. You can be sure the President had something in mine to stir the pot.

        He withdrew his name because Mitch McConnell said he would never pass the Senate. I do not know what has happened but something must have occurred in the Senate for Trump to renominate him. Watch for a comment from McConnell to get an idea of what to expect next.

          The announcement came AFTER McConnell met with Pres. Trump yesterday. Some have postulated that the President agreed to re-authorizing FISA for one year without any revisions in return for getting Ratcliffe confirmed as head of DNI. I think it’s something else because restructuring FISA or letting it expire is much more important to Pres. Trump than getting Ratcliffe as DNI.

          Something in the Trump-McConnell relationship has changed. IMHAO.

            It’s possible that Mitch & Co. – Burr, Graham, & other GOPe Committee Chairs – have finally recognized that overwhelming success of the GOP Senate, House, and down ballot in this 2020 election, depends ENTIRELY on their own thorough, active, uncompromising, visible support of President Trump.

            Betcha the GOPe Senate turncoats who voted against the President on the War Powers Act wish they could have that one back to do over. Oh, I forgot – maybe they’re part of the tribe not up for re-election in this cycle. How convenient.

          Absolutely correct — President Trump enjoys a 95% approval rating among republican voters. This re-nomination is President Trump DARING the slimy, treasonous scum to oppose Ratcliffe’s nomination.

          President Trump is flexing his muscles now, and is threatening a continuous cycle of Ratcliffe / Grennell every 210 days until the end of his second term, and EXPOSURE of the treasonous coup plotters is almost now assured; exposure of their corruption and treason will place many of them in serious danger of losing their seats at the government slop trough.

          President Trump’s coattails may be the longest ever seen in a modern election. If so, and 50-plus house seats and 5 or more senate seats are won, look for a new AG very soon thereafter. Of course it is not impossible that Barr’s days are already numbered……unless he gets off his fat ass and starts prosecuting these damn traitors.

          Durham’s testimony in obese Nadler’s committee should be entertaining.

      The best analysis so far on the Internet is contained in this article, on TheConservativeTreehouse: ~President Trump Nominates John Ratcliffe for Director of National Intelligence – Ramifications…~ Posted on February 28, 2020 by sundance.

      Sentences from the Article [Which is a must read in its entirety]: =
      “President Trump needed to generate an official DNI nomination in order to retain the current acting DNI authorities for Richard “Ric” Grenell; so that’s one aspect.”

      “However, beyond the procedural move there’s the larger background of the FISA reauthorization; and, in my [Sundance] opinion, that larger dynamic is the majority consideration.”

      “The FISA reauthorization; and the need for President Trump to support any type of reauthorization that eventually gets through the complex political dynamics within congress; and considering Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell traveled to the White House to discuss this issue yesterday; the outcome is considerable leverage for Trump.”

      “Having John Ratcliffe as ODNI at least provides President Donald Trump with control at the intelligence hub. If DNI Ratcliffe can then help to remove corrupt schemer Michael Atkinson (ICIG), even better.”

      “The position of DNI is critical within the intelligence community. Essentially the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is the boss of the CIA Director and NSA Director; and the ODNI handles the flow of classified intelligence and, importantly, the declassification of information to provide public sunlight.”

      “In the position of DNI John Ratcliffe would have the ability to reach out into any intelligence compartment, retrieve and then declassify any/all documents that might be used to show the gross abuses of power by prior intelligence officials. [Acting DNI Ric Grenell also has that current authority.] The information within reach is the risk SSCI Chairman Senator Burr and Vice-Chair Warner have attempted to control.” …

        To be fair, FOX does claim to be fair and balanced, and even if the anchors don’t believe what they’re saying, they have to at least pretend to be fair to both sides. It must be working for them as they are totally dominating cable news ratings. This anchor is Martha MacCallum, and I believe she is pretty much on the side of Trump. She’s not even close to being anti-Trump like Wallace and Napolitano. Granted, FOX is far from perfect,and unlike the rest of the media, at least FOX gives a voice to Trump and our side. Personally, I can’t watch FOX because it’s too frustrating, but it’s still better than having ZERO voice in the media.

    Or will snakes hope they can get FISA renewed before Ratcliffe is confirmed, then ignore him?

    If that would be the case, that Ratcliffe could be ignored, then POTUS needs to play hard ball and ignore signing FISA until Ratcliffe is confirmed.

I still think there is something being missed on “what’s changed” regarding the Ratcliffe pick…mainly the drama surrounding Crowdstrike. Put to Call ratios, insider selling, founder resigns, editing posts from 2016 and a few other “issues”. Recall their examination non-examination of the server is what supported the russia hacking myth. I maintain that the July call to Zelenksy in Ukraine created discomfort not because of the mention of Biden, but because PDJT mentioned Crowdstrike specifically. He knew a lot then, he knows a lot more now. And honestly, if Mitch wanted the FISA renewal, I think he could get it cheaper than a Ratcliff appointment…which is a big deal IMO.

    Having Ratcliffe as ODNI may also light a fire under AG Barr, as more exposure of the coup plotters TREASON is a certainty. It appears that Barr is only going to prosecute someone when he’s forced to do so by public exposure and pressure.

      As much as I would like to see the coup participants all arrested at zero dark thirty by a phalanx of machine gun-toting agents and even ST-6 wannabes crawling out of any adjacent creek or other body of water, frog marched to waiting cars and then to jail, tried and convicted in US District Court and then sent to a Superman prison for the rest of their sorry lives, I just do not think any of that is going to happen, at least to those main conspirators, including Barack Hussein Obama Himself.

      I fervently hope I am wrong but I have come to the conclusion there are not enough good and true government officials in all of the necessary positions that are involved in any such law enforcement operations and judicial proceedings against the members of the coup. As we have seen, it only requires a relative few Deep Statists to interfere to wholly pervert the course of justice.

      Actually DOL, if Barr refuses to prosecute clear, criminal acts within the larger conspiracies that were the Russia Hoax, Spygate,and the Shampeachment he becomes liable for a charge of conspiracy after the fact. There is NO statute of limitations on conspiracies so they remain prosecutable as long as the coverup continues!

        Agreed……while it is obvious that the current lack of prosecutions is due to a lack of will, not a lack of evidence. As Sundance has observed numerous times, AG Barr’s difficulty does not lie in what he needs to discover, but rather in how to navigate what is already clearly known by the public at large.

        For the past several months, Devin Nunes has appeared somewhat withdrawn, somber, almost moody. But, recently he has appeared much more relaxed, at ease, even jovial in on-air interviews.

        I believe both he and President Trump are about to thoroughly enjoy themselves……hopefully, at the expense of the treasonous coup plotters.

    If Rep Ratcliffe is confirmed as the new DNI, it will be a big win for the Trump admin and IMO, the nation he’ll serve.

    Unfortunately, Ms. McCallum became a big part of the story due to her treatment of Rep Nunes. Devin is arguably the most respectful and temperate politician on the Hill. He’s also one of the smartest and bravest. Without his determined investigatory efforts (and Patel’s etc) to uncover the truth of this Coup/FISA/corruption abuse scandal it might never have been discovered. He also endured many months of personal threats on social media and slanderous lies on the MSM for which he has finally filed lawsuits.

    Rather than show proper respect for temperate, polite Devin and his accomplishments, she displayed a superior school marm attitude that included constant interruptions as if Devin is not saying anything meaningful; lectures about “both” sides stopping the back and forth fighting and so on. Was she comparing Devin to Schiff!! I was going to order her new book about her distant relative’s story and death on Iwo Jima but if I read it now, her attitude toward Devin will be on my mind. It looked like a book worth buying so maybe I’ll do it later if she starts showing respect at least for heroes like Devin.

    “Would have completed process earlier, but John wanted to wait until the IG Report was finished”
    _____

    I find it interesting that Ratcliffe was with Nunes when they met with AG Barr in regards to FISA abuse back in April 2019.

    Ratcliffe, with his former prosecutor experience as an US Attorney in the Eastern District of Texas, plus his vast knowledge in National Security, plus his involvement in as a member of a joint task force of the Judiciary and Oversight committees to investigate if federal authorities abused surveillance powers during the 2016 presidential election, he probably personally found damning information (along with Kash Patel) that Nunes formally submitted to the DOJ.

    Devin Nunes sends Trump-Russia investigation criminal referral notification to DOJ
    by Daniel Chaitin & Jerry Dunleavy | April 11, 2019 03:11 PM | Updated Apr 11, 2019, 10:42 PM

    —–
    In a brief letter, Nunes informs Attorney General William Barr he and Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, want to meet to discuss eight criminal referrals, which are ready for consideration, as part of the House Intelligence Committee’s years-long examination of alleged misconduct during the Russia probe.
    —–

    According to Barr, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into possible abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the DOJ and FBI should be finished by May or June. That investigation was launched in March 2018.

    (Note: The DOJ IG Horowitz FISA Abuse Report eventually was released in December 2019)

    With Grenell’s temporary position due to expire March 11 (?), then doesn’t Ratcliffe’s nomination give Grenell up to six months longer in the position? Whether democrats stall Ratcliffe’s appointment or not, Grenell has already gotten the spring cleaning underway. Right?

    According to Les Crises reporting, the investigation into Joe Biden’s corruption was initiated by Shokin, the prosecutor fired upon Biden’s threat to withhold aid. https://www.les-crises.fr/breaking-news-prosecutor-shokin-files-a-complaint-against-joe-biden-for-interference-in-ukraine-s-legal-proceedings/ Oann also interviewed Shokin and spoke of Biden’s involvement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n2qmPGTrqk

          Still, a whole lot rides on President Trump winning another term. If he wins as yuuuge as I believe he will, and has long enough coattails to both win back the house and extend the senate by several seats, he will then have the power to replace Barr if necessary…..which looks more likely every day. THAT would be the turning point.

          McConnell will be a greatly weakened position if President Trump wins a massive landslide, because then the president can most likely flex his muscles in the 2022 mid-terms, regardless of his lame duck status; President Trump could actually campaign against some of McConnell’s fellow swamp rat traitors.

            I don’t think President Trump can get rid of the swamp rats. At best, he may be able to expose some of them and the exposure might force them out or help others win elections against them.
            But as long as legislation is a path to wealth, they will just be replaced with others who will follow the path their predecessors paved to wealth.

            That path seems to be through civil rights legislation. The intent of the Civil Rights Act was not to divide us into ‘identity’ groups assigned to us by swamp creatures. The one thing none of us are protected against are those who use our ‘identities’ to advance legislation that directs our wealth to their pockets.

    I agree with sundance and others. The damage of delaying the permanent correction of FISA by making a deal with Turtle is worth it if it has to happen since PDT is going to win a second term and Ratcliffe will be there to guard the henhouse. After he installs the new system, I hope he is named FBI Director. Grenell keeps cleaning in the interim and Turtle keeps confirming good Constitutionalist judges. We should just hold our collective noses and know that PDT holds the Trump card in all of this. However, FISA needs to be burned down and rebuilt. The majority of Americans will see what happened played out over the course of the next year and agree completely. What MAY (not 100% sure it was not planned to be what it became) have started as a sincere attempt to protect America turned into a sham and villainous system used by traitors and seditionists.

    Which is why We the People will never let this die without complete justice for the evildoers, AG Barr (if you or a minion is perusing this thread). The alphabets, one you now control, were all complicit in the worst possible treason against the greatest nation and patriots on the face of planet Earth. Their actions besmirch all of the patriots who laid down their lives and sacrificed their blood on our nation’s behalf for centuries. It was so bad it could have led figuratively and literally to Earth eventually being knocked off its orbit. You don’t get to protect any of your past associates or friends, it’s not in your job description or assignment. Bagpipe all you want to relieve stress, but get the job done or resign.
