Black Nixon

If you read the Articles of Impeachment against Richard Nixon, what jumps out to a modern reader is just how weak the case was against the President. Impeachment is a political action, so the rules of evidence we see in a courtroom don’t apply, but even so, the allegations seem weak in comparison to those against Bill Clinton. The case against Nixon was what we would now call a corrupt enterprise, like a mobster. Bill Clinton, in contrast, was accused of specific crimes that he committed while in office.

In both cases, the key question to be decided by the political class was what was best for the political system. The guilt or innocence of either man was a secondary consideration, outside of the impact on the political system. In the case of Nixon, his decision to resign, rather than fight impeachment, was all about defending the political order. Whether or not it was proper to run Nixon out of town or allow Clinton to remain in office is debatable, but the calculus at the time was about the best interests of the political order.

In fact, it was the political nature of both cases that led to very different results. In the case of Nixon, the move to impeach him was the denouement to a long war between Nixon and the Washington establishment. They wanted him impeached because they hated him. On the other hand, the impeachment of Clinton was unsuccessful because the ruling elite decided to defend him. There was no doubt that he was guilty of perjury and he brought dishonor to the office, but Washington insiders were willing to give him a pass.

These two events are relevant to our age, especially the case of Nixon, as evidence emerges of serious corruption at the end of the Obama years. It’s been clear for a while that the ridiculous Russian hacking stuff and the the special prosecutor were a smokescreen to conceal something else. Months ago, I made the point that the most likely thing being concealed was corruption within the the FBI. It was the most obvious answer, as Mueller, Rosenstein and Comey were the guys leading the charge on it.

What we’re learning now is the Department of Justice was most likely compromised by the same people corrupting the FBI. This story from The Hill reveals that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch was coordinating with FBI Director Comey on the Clinton e-mail scandal. Given the relationship between Lynch and the Clintons, it is safe to assume she was keeping them up to speed on the process. It’s also possible that Lynch never stopped working for the Clintons and was steering the investigation.

The link between Peter Strzok, the Chief of the FBI’s Counterespionage Section, and the Clinton operation is important, because of what is being learned about what the FBI was doing during the election. This very detailed write up from Conservative Treehouse is impressive, but quite long. It pulls together all of the public information related to the top-secret memo floating around Washington. Very serious people are talking about what is in that memo, characterizing it as the worst scandal in American history. That’s not nothin’.

The narrative that explains all of this is that high ranking people in the FBI, maybe even Director Comey, were working with the Justice Department to help Hillary Clinton in the election. That has seemed clear for a while now. What’s becoming clear now is Fusion GPS, the political dirty tricks operation, functioned as a cutout for the FBI and the Clinton campaign. The FBI shared secret intel with Fusion, who then sold it to the Clinton campaign or distributed to the media at the direction of the campaign.

There’s a word for all of this and it is called treason. It’s one thing for a career intelligence officer to go bad and start selling intelligence to a foreign government. That just a part of the life of a nation state. It is an entirely different thing when senior members of the political class are working to undermine the fundamentals of the political system. It is the sort of thing that results in hangings or civil wars. It’s why the infamous memo has not been released, despite the fact it could be leaked or declassified by the White House.

That’s what brings us back to Dick Nixon. The mere hint of abuse of the FBI and CIA by the political side of the White House was considered enough of a threat to warrant impeachment. What we have here is worse than anything Nixon was accused of doing, even by his fiercest critics. Stuff that is orders of magnitude worse went on in the Obama White House. Imagine senior FBI men, faced with federal prison, agreeing to rat out major political actors. Imagine them pointing the finger at Obama or his top aides.

Again, this is fundamentally a political problem, but it cannot be ignored. That’s probably why no one is in a hurry to release that memo. It’s not just about partisan politics. Imagine how blacks would react if we have a full blown political crisis that paints Obama as worse than Nixon. That is looking increasingly possible. People have forgotten about the systematic abuse of the IRS, using it against conservative activists in the run-up to the 2012 election. There’s only so much that can be swept under the rug to protect Obama.

This will not end well.

The Democrats in the House have to be careful with all this talk of impeachment. If articles of impeachment are drafted, the conduct of the FBI and DoJ as outlined in the secret memo and other documents will be directly relevant and would have to be made public in the trial in the Senate. Whether or not Trump is removed, the DoJ will still be headed by Sessions and a lot of top Obama Administration officials will have to worry about doing some prison time. Are they willing to take that risk, particularly if the thread leads all the way… Read more »

It’s the Streisand Effect, the obverse of what Hunter Thompson noted in his writing about Lyndon Johnson. If you call the other guy a pig fucker to make him deny fucking pigs, the other guy’s denial may loom in the public imagination. But people may remember that you brought it up. Every time Hillary or someone brings up Trump’s alleged collusion with foreign powers or Russia, she runs the risk of her technique backfiring. Ditto with the dems and impeachment proceedings. Trump’s a honey badger and once he gets going and pushes back those dominoes will topple.

The June 9th Trump Tower meeting was a carefully orchestrated sting operation (CIA style tradecraft). Nixon went down because of what he did “after” the Plumbers got caught (coverup). They are trying the same trick on Trump and focusing on alleged obstruction related to Don Sr.’s coaching of Don Jr. Make no mistake about it, this is an attempted coup d’etat in progress.

Sedition it is. It is hardly a coincidence (tovarisch?) that the GCHQ chief (Britain’s NSA), stepped down days after Trump’s inauguration. Their surveillance of Trump and the campaign would have been useful to allow NSA to surveil domestically (“foreign threat”).

This legal terminology is why the Rosenberg’s were tried for and executed for espionage over giving nuclear secrets to the Reds and why we haven’t tried anyone for treason since WW2 Its a legal impossibility to press treason charges unless Congress declares war Its also why Jane Fonda could never legally have been charged with treason. We weren’t at war with Vietnam . She could in theory have been charged with sedition not that would ever happen The side effect of… Read more »

Throwing that videographer in prison after Benghazi was a foreshadowing of what they did to Trump.

I suggest that someone in Congress read the FISA report, out loud, on the floor of the House or Senate. It would be interesting to see how the MSM could avoid reporting that, and it would be interesting to see them try to maintain the narrative. Members of Congress are immune from prosecution from anything they say on the floor of Congress, so there is no legal consequence. We would get a chance to hear the details, and they would be in the Congressional Record for all time. Watching the rats scramble on the sinking ship would be great sport.… Read more »

The memo hasn’t been leaked or released yet for a number of reasons. Firstly, as Nunes is well aware, there’s an ongoing counterintelligence operation by the FBI/DOJ to identify leakers of classified information. Nunes has made it very clear to GOP members of congress that anyone leaking the contents will be swiftly identified. Secondly, I suspect that Nunes want’s not only the memo, but all the supporting documentation released. My understanding is that this is part of the delay. Also, Nunes doesn’t want this leaked to the press, who have proven themselves time and again to be dishonest brokers. The… Read more »

Treason most foul, but if it succeed “none dare call it treason.” Since it didn’t succeed, hangings and long prison terms are in order for a large number of government officials. Make it so, President Trump.

Your grasp of reality would improve if you could believe that you can be, and are, held in contempt by another enemy of egalitarianism, democracy, feminism, blank slate theory, etc.

Punishing Obama would finally deliver the impossible dream of black Unity.

They are hardwired with excessive individualism and certainty.
They dream of the cohesion of other races, but their traits prevent this.

The crucifixion of Him would give them their Messiah. Their paranoia would be justified by this narrative.

The cities would indeed burn.
Riot is the negro default.
Be prepared for the fallout.

There must be hundreds of hours of recordings of obama slamming inner citie negroes. it would all be released as a prelude to his trial and imprisonment.

“Imagine how blacks would react if we have a full blown political crisis that paints Obama as worse than Nixon.”

For a first guess, the major urban areas of the country would burn like they did in the Sixties. Then, probably, terrorist actions by our native-bred criminal caste, the return of black revolutionary direct action, allied with Antifa.

Maybe that’s what needs to happen to clear the bullshit out of the way and start dealing with reality.

Somewhat OT, but the comment of the year over at Taki’s.

The pussyhat Marches against Trump?

“It was a selfie march.
The Look At Me Too! March.”

Hell, comment of the decade, comment of the entire matriarchy culture movement.

So when the womyn, who eagerly cheer this “let’s you and him fight”, come screaming, “save us from muslim and black beatings!”- why should we protect them? When blacks and browns come crying “save us from gang drive-bys!”, why should we protect them? When latte-sipping citiot man-buns come bleating, “save us from feminist putsches!”, why should we protect them? When administrators and jailers come pleading, “save our crazed mobs without water, food, or electricity, from doom!”- why should we protect them? When corrupt elites come demanding, “give us praetorians and mercenaries to guard our plunder!”, why should we protect them?… Read more »

It’s been guaranteed not to end well since at least the ’07-’08 bailouts. The only things really in question were just how bad and exactly what form the disaster would take.

I hope to hear some senator say of Obama, “What did the president know and when did he know it?” before the end of this year.
