Sunday Talks: Former ADNI Ric Grenell Discusses The Administrative State…

A really good interview as Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Richard “Ric” Grenell (Former Acting Director of National Intelligence & Former US Ambassador to Germany) about the Deep State, President Trump, how tech is disrupting diplomacy with international partners and gives an insider’s look at how Antifa could be affected by President Trump.

Richard first gives an insider’s take on what exactly the “deep state” is. He shares how the DC elites make decisions for the rest of America while bearing little to no consequences for them. Richard discusses how Donald Trump has functioned as a disrupter to the way that Washington DC operates. Richard also discusses what Donald Trump refers to as Obamagate.

Richard gives an insider’s look at how Barack Obama and his administration weaponized intelligence agencies like the FBI, CIA, and NSA to investigate Michael Flynn using James Comey and how this led to Russiagate hysteria. Finally he discusses what tactics could be used to deal Antifa for their connection to the violent riots across the country.

    I’ve already made my comments above regarding Richard Grenell and my apologies for stepping out of the normalcy but I hope Sundance will at least talk about this. Please allow me this opportunity to get the ball rolling in (I hope) another thread that Sundance might bring to life.

    The Minneapolis Police Department reformed their policies in 2016 but never reformed section 5-311 regarding “Neck Restraints” leaving this unchanged since its revision in 2012. The Sanctity of life under 5-301 (A) sounds like an improvement but I believe that was just to quell the anger from the Minneapolis residents.
    Unfortunately for our countries sake, these sections 5-301(A), 5-301.01 (A),(B) and section 5-311 are conflicting policies and any good lawyer will point this out.

    How does a Police Officer know if the situation is not going to escalate in the heat of the moment? Nowhere in section 5-311 under “Neck Restraints” does it mention what to do in the event of an individual being place in handcuffs. These questions and many more will be ask by a good lawyer. Did these Police Officers follow policy protocol or not? Did one of the Officers feel that there was abuse and therefore should have stepped in? So which one? The “Sanctity of Life”, “Duty to Intervene” or “Neck Restraints” policy? Did these Officers take the “Coaching” programs? What about filed complaints from past engagements, was anything done to weed out the “Bad Cops”? Being a Police Officer is certainly not a easy job and we can’t expect them to know everything in advance what they are going into.

    Sure, a suspect may be docile in the first initial contact but how can any of us know everything in advance (let alone a police Officer), when they might freak out, pull a gun, a knife, a head butt, a knee kick, etc, etc?

    What happened to George Floyd was a shame and whether he had a criminal background or not, did the Police follow procedures?

    If they are acquitted, then all hell is going to break loose because the State Representatives and the departments failed to reform their policies on “Neck Restraints”. President Trump is being attacked as a race agitator all because some bureaucrats in Minneapolis failed to do their jobs.

    Below you will find a direct link to the 5-300 policy.

    I watched this interview the other day and instantly thought “this is great validation for treepers”. I think the most interesting thing coming out of this is that we haven’t seen the last of Mr. Grennell. This was a scripted interview (nothing wrong with that) and the question about running for office I think was a deliberate trial balloon.

    How could Mr. Grenell best serve this country in the future? As a cabinet position or as the Mayor of LA or Governor of CA which could lead to the Presidency?

    Thoughts?

    We need to start selecting warriors to fight for us in DC. Grenell is the perfect example. Also Trump.
    Trump is not your Sunday school teacher kinda guy, but he fights back and he means what he says.

    From now on, we need to focus on choosing warriors, fighters, angry, mean, ready to take on the swamp.

    We’re so focused on the mesmerizing drama in Washington that we fail to notice the deep state acting proceeding as usual in its arrogant insolent aggression abroad –something in which Grennell himself has had a direct hand even recently. Oh wait, Trump himself has been fully behind the deep state’s war on free commerce between sovereign nations.

    Grenell makes very clear that Trump is fighting an institution this isn’t about party affiliations.
    Trump would need to be re-elected followed by two terms of Pence in order to get the kind of change that would have lasting impact.
    Remember when Trump moved Agriculture department out of DC? Many employees revolted to the point of quitting. They didn’t want to leave their perceived cosmopolitan lifestyle for a rural area.
    Trump has been chipping away at this mob like model while Obama parked his butt in a compound down the street from the Whitehouse.
    If Biden/dem. gets in I would not be surprised if Obama’s appointed Secretary of State or he will just pull the strings behind the scenes.
    Either way right after inauguration Executive orders will be signed at record speed reversing what Trump reversed against Obama and his legacy (regulations such as no fracking and charging citizens that don’t sign up for Obamacare).
    After watching the interview I feel frustrated that we let DC take over our country.
    There’s no quick fix and I think Grenell is very fascinating because he lays it all out and quite frankly Obamagate is important to expose but, in general terms Trump can’t fix this culture without exposing the big players and displacing masses of them by breaking up DC agencies by moving them out. Grenell explains only then will the thousands of jobs begin to be filled by say an agency that’s based in the Midwest. This would start to change the way federal government does business. It’s the only way the small numbers currently controlling the federal government will change.
    They don’t want to move away the connections and incestuous nature of DC becomes their life.
    One good example is Paul Ryan’s return to DC. I am sure he’s wreaking havoc as much as possible on behalf of whatever pro global lobbyists He’s working for.
    The irony that Trump had never spent a night in Washington DC until he became President and Obama just continued.
    You can bet President Trump will not spend another after his presidency ends and he will not have difficulty leaving.
    Those idiots that write about how President Trump will refuse to leave are pandering to fools because we are lucky 🍀 Trump is willing to even serve this Country that if we knew even half of what he did might say screw it. 😩
    Donald Trump is an old school badass and brilliant on top of that.
    Obama, suck up Hillary (hoping she could fall into getting that call if Biden can’t stand up or they can’t make a double that looks believable enough) keep thinking all their moves are like high stakes chess when Trump is already prepared and views it as checkers.
    Trump knows what’s coming but, even so it has to get exhausting!!
    Trump is there to make this Country a better place his opposition wants their power back to ruin it.

        USDA relocated NIFA to Kansas City, one of our other main offices. That went over like a lead balloon. 75% of the SYs outright refused to transfer, and left the Agency. The rest transferred to MO. Lots of open positions now!

        I work for USDA….a real Resistance Agency!…and the disrespect showed to Sec Perdue was just embarrassing to watch. In his Townhall meeting about the move, the majority attended, but with their backs turned to him as he spoke.

        They all had over a year to prepare and Perdue bent over backwards to transition everyone smoothly and absorb almost all the expenses of relocation. But…. Nothing was good enough for the SYs. They preferred to behave as spoiled entitlement brats or martyrs….whichever you prefer.

        Kansas City isn’t bad….you can have a house worth $10+M in DC for under 1M there. People are just addicted to the power in DC. NIFA was relocated because they were supposed to be working closely with the farmers….but it turned out that the SYs didn’t actually want to live out anywhere near farmland, that’s for sure.

    Mr. Grenell speaks ‘Truth to Power’ in this interview.

    More on the ‘Truth to Power’ at the end my post.

    However Ric makes a very import and actually the only salient point that many on ‘main street’ America have come to understand about our Federal Government.

    It is not, a politician issue so much as career professional staffers that have a revolving door musical chairs relationship to the deep pocketed and dark monies of the Federal Government lobbying efforts that are imbedded in the Federal Government. Not only that, the problem has also merged with aligned interests with the media as the tip of the spear to make the ‘selling point’. That is where Ric is hitting the nail the head.

    So getting back to the slogan/placard, ‘Truth to Power’. It quite interesting that slogan disappeared from the MSM talking point lexicon just as quickly as it began. The reason is simple…
    With all that is going on in Washington, DC… Our overlords in the chatting class quickly realized the statement, ‘Truth to Power’ would be eventually appropriated to bludgeon the misappropriation of the actual power in DC.

      Aside of any given political face and the front groups behind any given politician. Ric comes across as interested, understanding, knowledgeable and more importantly is his relatability to speak forthcominly.
      One could say he is a breath of fresh air.

      I certaintly desire to see more of him on the National Stage.
      Here is a political move that I believe ultimately makes best use of his skill set.
      I hope President Trump, and Mr. Grenell are reading and paying attention to this…
      ‘Main Street’ needs its own lobby effort to influence politicians. Mr. Grenell would be a perfect leader to carryout and grow a ‘main street’ influence lobby.

      The charter should be simple. Direct, informative and of a quality as to be authoritive(last word in nature) of the prevailing counter intuitive efforts of the entrenched political machine. The exposure of the counter intuitive efforts of entrenched DC lobbying to further vested interest aims. It should be guided by Sunlight that exposes the lobbying efforts of deep seated monied interests, that present themselves as acting in our NAME but ultimately are designed to achieve and enrich the interests of the few.
      In practice such a ‘main street’ lobby must be focused on deconstructing the MSM narratives used to advance a given issue that are presented in the media as having unarguably talking points.
      narrative talking points that are echoed by the very people that controll not only ‘What are the National concerns/issues of the day but also ignore the counter points to these effoets as not be news worthy should regularly be high lightened.

      The only solution that counters this, is a National Lobbying efforts of ‘main street’ SUNLIGHT.

      In my opinion this position can be done on the cheap.

      Say a 50 million budget built on a direct campaign of equalizing the MSM influence. It simply requires honest and direct communication to about 30 million people on ‘main street’. Achieve that type of organization, and a fifty million budget achieves a force multitude of ten. That is 500 hundred million. Now that is real potatoe money, not chicken feed. All built on advocacy outlining and deconstructing the lobbying process that is selling out piece by piece while the MSM sells these activities in our be interests.

      I so firmly believe this the prescription to the ‘deep state’

Basically the opposite of the public face and narrative presenting the underlying issues involved.
      In practice such a ‘main street’ lobby must be focused on deconstructing the MSM narratives used to advance a given issue that are presented in the media as having unarguably talking points. Where the only aim is to influence the public preception while holding back import counter arguments.

      Narrative talking points that are echoed by they very people that controll not only ‘What are the National concerns/issues of the day also have as an end game to codifying the popular awareness of these talking points. But also provide analysis to work around the contrarian( main street interests) which ultimately are solely selected on the basis to advance the interests of select groups of DC influencers.

      Structurally, as a grass rooted lobbying effort a budgetary goal must be set realistically.
      Say 50 million, to provide cutting edge analysis on the lobbying swamp piped into say 30 million VOTERS. It must not only be truthful, it must pick and choose its battles. It does not need to fight every battle, but it must show itself effective on the battkes it chooses.

      To say trillions are stake, is to provide under this prescription of TRUTH a means to fighting back.

      WE CAN do this on the cheap, we don’t have to match dollar for dollar. We have to lobby as a force multiplier. By speaking TRUTH to POWER, such a grass roots can magnify 50 million in operating budget into a ten fold increase. That is 500 million of fearful TRUTH.

      It just requires an assertive lobblying effort towards ‘main street’ interests that galvanizing 30 million people in the ‘main street’

      In my opinion, such a lobbying effort does not need to fight a battle of dollar to dollar donation. It can fight a force multiplayer battle of ten to one.

      As long as the National Grass roots of this lobbying effort of creditability battle speaks forth righteously directly to 30 million people, than the a dollar to dollar campaign can force a reaction. Think of it, one dollar spent in main street concerns causes the anti main strret concerns to expend capital countering a TRUTH. I say this to illustrate by forcing the unchallenged lobbying efforts to have to counter prevail against ‘main street’ interest forces a burden back by direct talking points of observation that deconstruct the antithetical obviousness of the MSM sell out of the middle class interests.

      The sum totality of my argument is if RIC is the real deal, efforts should to be lead a grass roots effort to counter react the deep state.

      TO SUCH. If I am able impress that on the ‘main street’ agenda that directs Mr. Genrel to ead the charge. A Public announcement, he is to institute a PAC to lead ‘ main street’ agendas.
      I would pleadge $1000 for the next ten years to such lobbying efforts.
      This is amount that would cause substantial constraints on my well being. My only guiding expections is the fundemental goal of this lobbying pac is to assert to minimum of 30 million voters the truth of the duplicative nature of DC lobbying efforts.

    Better to just shrink the size of government. 10% a year for 10 years. With that, remove 10% of laws and regulations per year for 10 years.

    That solution lies with us, the People. We have to clean house. The government will never reform or shrink on its own. It will grow until its host perishes. We have to reject our Party which grooms and chooses who wins primaries. We have to vote out elected officials who do not represent liberty and limited government.

    He’s a true believer of this country’s founding principle, remains Idealistic, yet intelligent, hard working, decent and honest. He is also a cancer survivor. These character traits give him his fearlessness and righteousness.

    It’s rare nowadays for this type of people willing to work in the government. We see more of Gowdy/Rubio type. Hope POTUS will find a suitable position for him after his well-deserved break.

    The 2020 election is starting to look like the three-way gunfight in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: The Right, The Left and the DC Cartel. Take ya’ pick.

    One of the good things about splitting up DC is that crimes would not only be tried n the corrupted DC courts with a far left juries.

    Where did Rick’s chief of staff while Acting DNI go? He was the lead investigator on Dunes’ staff. I hope he’s still with Ratliff.

    Grenell was more than just honest, up front and clear, he confirmed to me that much of what I read on here is true.

    And the fact that he was so matter of fact about it should inspire thousands both in and outside of gvt to do the same thing if they ever have the opportunity to serve in gvt. It will keep everyone straight. (No pun intended).
