    • The Sundance April 3 post (President Trump Removes Coup Plotter ICIG Michael Atkinson – DC Media Conscripts Go Bananas…) gave us the key to understanding what is occurring: “Obviously, it took a certain amount of strategic patience to get all the right people into position in order to prepare for the political backlash as an outcome of confronting those political operatives who participated in the coup effort.”

      jimboct,
      If I may, the operative term is “acting” (personnel). I believe President Trump has mentioned a preference (?) to “acting”, as opposed to requiring congressional approval. A classic and clever “workaround”! And this is in President Trump’s wheelhouse. In the private sector, a BOSS (builder) often hires (contracts) specialists to accomplish specific tasks. Once the task(s) is/are dispatched, he thanks them for their service, and sometimes offers them another position, sometimes not. Secretary Tillerson comes to mind. Say what you will, but he appeared to masterfully facilitate the coalescence of the Saudis et al. A key victory in Mr. Trump’s legacy. President Trump is kicking their asses with many if not ALL limbs tied behind his back. The man just continues to amaze…
      Stay safe and healthy,

        I’ve observed that President Trump has the ability to generally absorb or at least make use of the ability, knowledge/insights/industry contacts/networks he can from an individual, whether they are part or the coup/never Trumpers or not, and fire them when the time is right. And Trump will always come out looking stronger when they part ways. Trump’s reputation is what stays intact.

          Therefore, P. Trumps “acting positions” will draw 1) patriots who want to serve the country & the president, other than just their own interests; 2) people who are not usually political climbers; and 3) people who can adapt and function on merit, for a specified task for a specified time, and be OK with it.

          What I mean is, to really know, we would need a set of alternating universes, where we could “play out” EACH alternative; Doing nothing, rigid, unconstitutional contract tracing with mandatory quarantine,…mandatory quarantine of ONLY those ‘vulnerable’,..opening up at 15, 30, 45, and,60 days and probably several other scenarios, and look at ALL the effects, not just deaths from CHI-NA virus, but suicides, etc.

          Look at the effect on Hospitals, and especially hospital SYSTEMS in major metro areas.

          And, of COARSE,look at ghe effect on the Economy.

          Since we don’t have access to multi-verses, I’m not SURE that we will get a definitive answer;
          It might well be that its like debating “WHAT would have happened, if JFK hadn’t been shot?”

          I happen to like “Red Dwarf” scenario, but we can never really know.

          On civil liberties, A) will they come back B) Does this set a precedent.

          I am not absolutely sure that the Dr death scenario, of overwhelming the healthcare system is accurate, OR that this was the ONLY, or BEST way to avoid that.

          Few are mentioning that as,a result of “Consolidation” of Hospitals, (very similar and as deleterious as media consolidation) AND as a result of Obama care, many hospitals have CLOSED, over last 5 years.

          Certainly that aggravates the situation.

          If the admissions and deaths are lower, and hospitals are not over run, they will say “See, mitigation WORKED!” Not, well I guess our models were WRONG, and we shut down the country for nothing!”

          Thats a fine position for you to take, others have and I respect it.

          To me the ‘tell’ was when PDJT started talking about a “Durham report”; he started it, then they asked Barr who was kinda cought by surprise, said he’d have to discuss with Durham, but it might be good, sorta thing.

          Prosecutors don’t write REPORTS; they either file indictments with the court, or they write Declination memos, to stick in the file, detailing their decision NOT to prosecute.
          It accounts for their work, to their boss, and is useful if anyone wants to come back and give the case a new look, perhaps if new evidence develops.

          So, a report from Durham only makes sense,as an expanded version of a Declination memo;
          A Declination report, if you will.

          Again, if he’s going to start handing down indictments, and prosecuting people, WHY in the HELL would he write a report?

          To me, the fact PDJT started the talk of a Durham report, was him subtly saying he had concluded that,Durham wasn’t going to prosecute anybody.

          But hey, thats my take.

Anyone leaking anything can be prosecuted – it is reasonable to believe that no information on grand jury is not bad news.

                  Well, prepare to be shocked; you are repeating a common misconception.

                  NOT anyone. Prosecutors and the grand jurors themselves are “gagged”; any witnesses are ‘free’ to talk about the grand jury they were called to testify to, and anyone THEY tell is free to repeat it.

                  Now, potential Defendants, like say Brennan or Comey might NOT tell anyone they had been subpoenad to a grand jury, except their lawyer, who can not accompany them.

                  But “last ones a rotten egg”; the last one subpoenad is usually the ‘subject’ of the investigatoon.

                  First the prosecutor brings in ‘fact witnesses’; to establish facts to lay out his case that A) a crime was committed B) he/she has probable cause to believe the subject committed the crime.

                  Particularly in a high profile case, these fact witnesses always tell SOMEBODY, and word gets out, and back to the subject, prior to them being subpoenad.

                  Trust me, as a former subject of several grand jury investigations, I knew it was coming, BEFORE I got served with the subpoena.

                  Given the nature of the case, I would,say the fact we have heard nothing GUARANTEES there have been no grand juries empaneled by Durham.

His prior military service includes time as a prosecutor, defense counsel, military judge, deputy general counsel at the White House Military Office and Senior Individual Mobilization Augmentee. He was mobilized in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and again with a Joint Special Operations Task Force in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.”

    What do you know? Obama’s venomous snake minions are taking turns to disclose their miserable participation in the coup against President Trump.

    Among the first to jump: Warner, Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer; now Brennan and some deep-swamp, little, stinky fish. I wonder when is Comey’s turn.

    No, after 8 years of selective promotion under Obama, there probably aren’t enough to go around. And maybe that’s why this guy retired a a Colonel? Wonder if there might be quite a supply of Colonels who should have been Generals, but were unwilling to don kneepads?

    Can anyone go back into twitter and find 2 tweets from Nate Cain the WB dated Nov 9, 2019? I can’t go back that far and don’t have a twitter account to use other programs.

    One is at 6:03 PM and one at 6:50 PM

    I think Sundance will want to see these, as back then Nate names names and MA is one of them.

    Might be relevant with yesterday’s announcement and something Sundance may want to keep in his files.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is he from the JAG “club”that only ever seemed to maliciously prosecute our troops since 2002 and only believed the testimony of Paliwoodesque Iraqi and Afghan “victims”? Did he hang out a lot with the Fort Hood Judge who dithered for 6 months before figuring out Hassan was NOT allowed to sport his jihad beard in the courtroom??…. and let the trial go on for 4 years before finally convicting a guy who confessed to the massacre and 50 eyewitnesses (including a bunch of survivors) positively ID’d him on the stand as the shooter?? (Of course any association with the GITMO defense team is not going to be helpful…. KSM in custody since 2005 and NO trial yet? I bet they allow him to leave GITMO if there is a COVID outbreak down there…)

      In 2012 when I ran a flight simulator in NV I was able to attend the NV JTTF meeting in Las Vegas as a civilian member, and we saw real video of the attack at Ft. Hood, video that will never be shown publicly they said. How any judge took more than 20 minutes to wrap that up is a mystery, except for the over-riding Obama era PC and diversity.“`

    Yeah, when I saw Burr was caught up in that insider trading accusation re coronavirus, I figured there’d be some knock-on effects. They asked Trump about Burr and Feinstein and the rest, and he was noncommittal, mentioning that “They are all honorable people as far as he knows”, but that was a rather foreboding sounding reply to me, and firing Atkinsson suddenly comes along. Trump knows Burr can’t stick his head up too far right now, and that Trump can get elements of the DoJ or SEC to rattle his cage somewhat.

    Never let a crisis go to waste. Swamp creature Burr trades stock based upon insider info, gets exposed, and Trump immediately challenges Burr’s committee with a drastic personnel change. Ordinarily, Burr and Romney would be expected to jump up and squeal about that, but I bet we don’t see much of them on the Sunday shows tomorrow.

  37. BREAKING: President Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence watchdog who handled the complaint that triggered his impeachment.

    If we had a real Free Press:

    BREAKING: President Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, the crooked intelligence officer who doctored the Whistleblower Form for rogue CIA mole Eric Ciaramella in a criminal conspiracy with Rep. Adam Schiff to overthrow the President.

    A friend that is a nurse has worked only the last 2 days of the last 2 weeks in San Antonio. When she called the staffing agencies the answer was every hospital in Texas has the same problem – no patients. San Antonio VA has 6 CCP virus patients, all doing well.

    I just did a quick model on my PC, It shows 99% correlation between those who object to the new IGIC also object to HCQ (I know that statistical correlation does NOT show cause and effect, but my guess is “Orange Man Bad” is the common denominator).

    Since when has the IC supposed to be independent ? They are there to serve the Executive Branch (i.e. the POTUS). Their work product naturally goes no where else.

    I’m hoping that soon the testimony from the bunker in the House will be released to us, the public. Then we will learn what exactly Adam Schiff was planning to do when he called Atkinson to testify and then refused to release the testimony still to this day it has been withheld. Which is strange since the transcript of the phone call was released 2 months ago.
