    Lawfare Review of John Durham investigation
    Review & Analysis (ha!)

    The Durham Investigation: What We Know and What It Means

    By Jack Goldsmith, Nathaniel Sobel
    Thursday, July 9, 2020

    I was unaware there was a turf war between the NSA, CIA, and others. Interesting time to spin the Durham investigation … preemptive strike?

        The FBI can’t shoot, can’t investigate, can’t put a case together unless they can get a plea to a process crime. They are a bunch of paper pushers who watch crime dramas on TV, read fiction crime novels and get their ideas from spy novels. Without local police to help on actual crimes they would solve nothing. Attorneys from the DOJ tell them what to, who to interview, what questions to ask and how to write the 302. That’s why nothing they do is recorded or video taped. The DOJ will not let them.

      1.) These Lawfare Fools know that THE PROVERBIAL SH*T IS ABOUT TO HIT THE PROVERBIAL FAN
      2.) Overt and transparent attempt to discredit Durham… before the results of his investigation are even known. See #1.

            starfker,
            I share your frustration, as many here do. I look at it slightly differently, though.

            We HAVE done something, and continue to, and its something not just important, but VITAL.

            Despite all the lies, misrepresentations and villifications directed at PDJT,…WE have continued to support him.

            Despite all the negative stuff thrown at US, despite losing lifelong friends and family members, etc.,..WE have PERSISTED in supporting him.

            It was NOT Republicons in the Senate that stood in the way of PDJT being convicted; it was US!

            And they now by now, with all they have thrown at him, and us and that our support is unwavering,…and it drives them CRAZY!

            If ONLY we would drop our support, they could impeach him, for spitting on a sidewalk, and make it stick.
            Republicons in the Senate would gladly go along,….except for US.

            So, our vital role is WE have PDJT’s back, and thats no small deal!

            IMHO,….

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/11/july-11th-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1269/comment-page-1/#comment-8461850)

    Note: Most of the WBTW related social media accounts are covering coronavirus, politics, or illegal alien crimes. We will probably be in a quiet period regarding wall content until the next project(s) are near completion.
    The praises (much of which are older news) have been provided for those who wish to give thanks for them before praying for the wall prayer requests. I may add to, trim back, or simplify from time to time as projects/events progress or come to completion. If there is any new wall news I’ll list them in the update below. Otherwise, feel free to page down or scroll past.

    Saturday night update – 7/11/20

    – Just posting the prayer post today.

    – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Sunland Park, NM)
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall & Fisher industries project while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    Fisher receives $268M; another $132M could be added if all options in contract are exercised, totaling $400M… or $8.6 to $13M per mile)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.
    Project: Yuma (Wellton Station) Border Wall System

    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.
    ***Praise: While the Temporary Restraining Order(s) were in place, Fisher Industries and crews were still able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing to Dec 12th (after which they were off for the holidays).
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Judge Crane lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher was able to continue to “shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.”
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 2 complete: Feb 17)… Fisher Industries was able to build 3.5 miles of wall along the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas. Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the floodplain.

    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (5/6/20)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $1.28B border wall contract to build 42 miles of wall in southern Arizona, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation. It’s the largest border wall contract that’s ever been awarded. The project includes seven (or 8?) segments and will be painted black.
    Project: Tucson Package 3, (Complex terrain, which includes rugged mountains and water crossings)
    ***PRAISE: (6/11/20)… Foreman Mike stated that Fisher Industries now has ~95 miles of border wall contracts out of the 450. (Of the 95, only ~73 miles are accounted for in the federal awards we know about, which leaves ~21 miles from contract(s) we do not yet know about.)

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name (& according to Your will):
    – for safety, health, and good weather for the work crews as they continue working on WBTW’s private projects… as well as Fisher’s Federal 7.6M/800 foot contract, the 400M/31 mile contract, the 1.28B/42 mile contract for border wall, and any other projects they may be working on; that Fisher would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    – that Fisher would be able to safely and smoothly transition(scale up w/ equipment & training of work crews) to be able to build 1+(to 2?) miles of wall per day.
    (Tommy Fisher has previously stated that, given a large enough project, they would be able to build 1 mile of wall per day within 3 months. So this process may have started as early as mid-April or May 6th… and will possibly be ramped up by mid-August??? Just a guess…)

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned. (Backstory/timeline)
    ***Praise: (4/15/19)… Fisher Industries has been awarded a 7.6M contract modification to build 800 linear feet of 30-foot bollard barrier while the original 400M contract is still under review by the DoD IG’s office. My guess is this will give further evidence to the IG that Fisher Industries was justified in receiving the original 400M contract. (Details)
    (Update: Fisher has built well beyond the initial 800 feet.)
    ***Praise:… Looks like work has already begun on this 31 mile project, despite the ongoing audit. Photos showing well over 800 feet of wall, started appearing around the end of April. No official word yet though.

    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that both sides would be able to resolve any issues and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (July 8)… Hearing summary…
    Representative’s for Fisher admits “there are overgrown grass and weeds and soil erosion at the site.”
    “Fisher Industries, is working to smooth out the embankment and re-seed grass that hasn’t taken…”
    Engineers from both sides haven’t been able to come together yet for a hydrology meeting.
    “Both sides expressed frustration at the lack of input from Mexican officials but blamed it on the ongoing pandemic that has struck Mexico particularly hard. ”
    “Crane — who in January ruled that the government had not provided enough evidence to stop construction of the private border wall — said he would reset the hearing for 30 more days.”
    Crane said “I really do expect by then engineers will have gotten together and I hope there is some progress on areas where grass didn’t take.”
    Fisher told BorderReport that “it takes time for the grass to grow in the sand and so areas where the grass hasn’t taken hold yet we’ll fix” … “And then if there’s any spots that it looks like it’s going to just becoming a problem then that’s where we’ll put riprap (rubble.)”

    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier.)
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill, HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    ***Praise: (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction/salvation(through faith in Christ Jesus) for the work crews, security personnel, legal teams, CBP, DHS, Army, National Guard and all involved in WBTW/Fisher Industries private or federal projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – (May 29 – CBP notice)… for Fisher to come up with innovative solutions or improvements requested by CBP “related to the anti-climb/anti-cut features of the border wall” (Deadline: June 12)
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)

    – that Project 2’s wall will prove that the design is sound and that WBTW/Fisher Industries are capable of safely and effectively building it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW &/or Fisher Industries to build 250+ miles of wall on Private Property in Texas
    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.

    🌟 “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead. Because it’s the outsiders who change the world and will make a real and lasting difference. Nothing worth doing ever came easy. Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.” ~ President Donald J. Trump 🌟

      The last sentence of Herridge’s release by the FBI is:

      “The decision whether to turn over documents to defense counsel as part of discovery in a pending criminal case typically belongs to the prosecutors handling the case, not the FBI.”

      This sentence is effectively blaming Van Grack for withholding the Exculpatory Brady Evidence from Flynn. But, Van Grack has not been fired (or disbarred or held in contempt or prosecuted), yet Dana Boente was forced to retire at just the time all this was coming out. He was Wray’s boy at the FBI.

      So, the word “typically” may be a qualifier in the above sentence. Boente may have been the one who made the call to keep the Exculpatory evidence away from Flynn, which would mean Wray’s FBI was still playing games with Flynn until just recently, and is still today BS-ing the American people with that sentence.

      Van Grack or Boente or both. Somebody needs to be in a lot of trouble–not still employed or retired on a fat federal pension.

    I mean, really. Who do these people think they are? I really can’t stand the teachers unions. It’s not about the kids (outside of indoctrinating them).

      “…A major teachers union is claiming that the re-opening of schools in its district cannot occur without several substantial policy provisions in place, including a “moratorium” on charter schools and the defunding of local police.

      United Teachers Los Angeles, a 35,000-strong union in the Los Angeles Unified School District, made those demands in a policy paper it released this week. The organization called on local authorities to “keep school campuses closed when the semester begins on Aug. 18.”

      The union outlined numerous major provisions it says will be necessary to reopen schools again, including sequestering students in small groups throughout the school day, providing students with masks and other forms of protective equipment, and re-designing school layouts in order to facilitate “social distancing.”…

      …Police violence “is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue,” the union writes. The document calls on authorities to “shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing, to education and other essential needs such as housing and public health.”

      “Privately operated, publicly funded charter schools,” meanwhile, “drain resources from district schools,” the union states. The practice of “colocating” charter schools in existing structures, it continues, “adds students to campuses when we need to reduce the number of students to allow for physical distancing.”

      The union also demands the implementation of a federal Medicare-for-All program, several new state-level taxes on wealthy people, and a “federal bailout” of the school district…

      “…As it stands, the only people guaranteed to benefit from the premature physical reopening of schools amidst a rapidly accelerating pandemic are billionaires and the politicians they’ve purchased,” it adds…”

        The leftists are feeling the empowerment granted to them by politicos and encouraged by the media.

        This will be an epic showdown, and since it is occurring in CA, I anticipate the teachers will likely have most, if not all, of their demands met prior to schools being reopened.

        Moreover, it is a “bat signal” to teacher unions across the country.

        This is not really about CV-19.

          If only Ronald Reagan was still Governor, or someone with a spine. They should be told to report to work and if they don’t they are fired. There are millions of unemployed right now, many with college degrees. A STEM graduate is perfectly capable of teaching high school math, in fact most likely would do a better job, ditto for many other degrees and subject areas.

        Then don’t open the schools. Frankly, few of the kids in these schools are future taxpayers anyway. Why waste money to “indoctrinate” them?

      Ok, L.A. parents. Time to wake up and break these union thugs in half. They are now refusing to educate your kids unless school choice is taken away from you and police protection is dissolved? How much more are you willing to put up with? You are paying hard earned money for this garbage!

      Give the existing teachers a performance score of 1,2,3. Get rid of the 2s and 3s and start over with teachers who aren’t 60 years old and 600lbs. They’ll live.

        Yes, it is anarchy.
        Surreal.
        Seems to me that the anarchists intent is to destroy everything American and create hatred and division among the people to keep our focus off our leaders, who are the real enemy, and who we all should be blaming. (And our leaders are supporting the anarchists because they know it keeps the focus off them) ?

        Exactly. Clemency is a ‘reduced charge’. Trump has not done that.

        I could be wrong, but I thought Barr’s original words were to ‘proceed slowly’, which Trump did with the commutation, which is stage 1 . Pardon (stage 2) can come after the election, which also is not clemency.

    President Trump is a master troller. With the action he took for Roger Stone, every time the media-rats bring it up, President Trump is going to use the opportunity to expose corrupt judge vermin-jackson, the vermin-jackson rigged jury and all the Obama/Clinton people who committed REAL crimes and yet are walking around free without an arrest or prosecution.
