The Great Cover Up

Joe diGenova has been talking about the seditious plot to overturn the 2016 election for at least a year, maybe longer. Unlike a lot of the people commenting on this in the mass media, he is not using it to sell books or boost his cable career. He also knows how the FBI and DOJ works from a practical matter. Being knowledgeable makes him a rare guy in the commentariat. Most of the people brought on as experts for the cable chat shows know very little about their alleged areas of expertise.

Regardless, he has been one of the most hawkish people on the Barr investigation, claiming that it is a real investigation with real criminal targets. In this recent radio interview he goes into the details of both the Barr investigation and the ongoing impeachment fiasco. He is a Trump partisan, so his opinions on impeachment are predictable, but his thoughts on the conspiracy are interesting. He probably has access to information from the Trump White House.

The interesting thing about all of this is just how widespread the conspiracy was during the 2015-2016 period. In that interview he talks about former NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers, who is allegedly cooperating with Barr and Durham. What makes the Rogers issue interesting is that he was the original whistle-blower. He is not treated as such, because the media hates Trump and anyone associated with him, but Rogers was the guy who blew the whistle on the spying to the Trump people.

What’s also interesting about Rogers is he seems to have been a good guy, who decided to put an end to the shenanigans with regards to access to top-secret data by FBI contractors. He closed off their access at some point in 2016, which put him in bad odor with the Obama administration. He was eventually pushed out, which suggests the conspiracy has roots into the Obama inner-circle. That may explain why the easy cases to be made against the FBI conspirators are on hold.

That’s the other thing about the Rogers case. As CTH explains in that post, his addition to the story reveals that the use of the NSA database by political contractors working for the Democrats goes back to at least 2012. It is an axiom of white-collar crime that the practice always goes back much further than the evidence initially reveals. Anyone who has done forensic accounting knows this. You find the first evidence of a crime, but it turns out that the pattern goes back much further.

That may be what lies beneath all of this. The great puzzle thus far has been the lack of prosecutions, despite ample evidence. The FBI agents are all guilty of crimes that have been detailed in public documents and the IG reports. There is now proof that Comey perjured himself many times. Just from a public relations perspective alone, rounding up these guys and charging them with corruption seems like a no-brainer. Almost a year into his tenure and Barr has charged no one with a crime.

One obvious explanation is that Barr is running a long con on Trump and the rest of the country, on behalf of the inner party. Robert Mueller was supposed to use his investigation to hoover up all the data so it could not be made public, in addition to harassing the Trump White House. His incompetence meant Barr took over the job and is now hoovering up all the information on the various parties. That way, everyone has an excuse for not doing anything about plot.

One bit of evidence in support of this is the handling of the James Wolfe issue. He was the Senate staffer caught leaking classified information to one of the prostitutes hired by the Washington Post. Big media hires good looking young women to sleep with flunkies like Wolf in order to get access to information. Wolf was caught and charged, but instead of getting a couple years in jail, he got two months. He will come out and land into a six-figure job as a reward for being a good soldier.

An alternative explanation is that what started as a straight forward political corruption case bumped into a long pattern of behavior. In the course of investigating that pattern, the trail went much further back than the 2016 election. If there is evidence of abuse going back to 2012, maybe it goes back further. It was the Bush people, after all, who pushed for the creation of secret courts and secret warrants. Maybe Dick Cheney was listening to your phone calls after all.

It is not just the linear aspect of this. The sheer number of people involved in just the FBI scandal is phenomenal. There are at least 20 FBI people named and dozens of bit players in the media and DOJ. So far, the “contractors” with access to the NSA database have not been revealed, but that could be hundreds of people, given that it seems to have been a free-for-all. The corruption may not only go back a long time, but cover a wide swath of official Washington.

That may be the answer to the great cover up. That’s what we are seeing. This is a great cover up of the biggest scandal in American history. To date, no one has been charged with a crime, despite hundreds of crimes being documented. Many of the principals are now enjoying high six figure lives, based on the fact they were part of the seditious plot to overturn the 2016 election. Instead of the scandal of the century, it is the celebration of the century for the inner party.

One of the signs of ruling class collapse is when they can no longer enforce the rules that maintain them as a ruling class. When the Romans started making exceptions to republican governance, it was a matter of time before someone simply decided the rules no longer applied to them. Perhaps the robot historians will consider Obama our Marius or Sulla. Maybe that person is in the near future. Either way, the rule of law is over and what comes next is the rule of men.

Gore Vidal called Franklin Roosevelt the “American Augustus” and I could make an argument that the American Augustan age ran from him until the first Bush. After Augustus the Roman Empire’s leadership declined for 100 years, so if we are to repeat history, we’re somewhere in Tiberius’s reign. And guess who came after Tiberius…

They have a collar on the President refusing to allow him to make recess appointments. Also, the constant threat of impeachment conviction.

Either the long game is to let the little guys go in the name of rolling up all of the big guys, or it is a sort of a Mexican Standoff where everyone simply goes home in a few years.

Bill Barr shows every sign of taking this investigation seriously, and not sweeping this under the rug. He has publicly called out Comey as a liar and openly disagreed with the conclusions of the Horowitz report. I expect that Durham will call for indictments, but more importantly I expect that Barr will use the evidence from the Horowitz report and the Durham report to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate.

Regarding the delay, as Bill Barr said, these things take time:

There is also the possibility that Barr, rather than acting through a deep conviction about right and wrong, instead sees a conspiracy so broad and so deep, and so ultimately ineptly executed, that it is ripe for taking down in dramatic and epic fashion. Barr’s lawyerly instincts to blow up something big that needs and deserves blowing up, along with an opportunity to write his name into the history books, may be too big of a last shot in one’s career to pass up.

Agreed. To date, the only evidence that Barr/Durham could be White Knights is the panic of the Deep State. Until someone is indicted, they will remain an unknown at best.

I now look at all foreign aid (which was just increased) as nothing more than a method to launder and direct taxpayer funds to big donors like defense companies. They keep the campaign cash flowing to incumbents while the younger Bidens and Pelosis, Feinstein’s husband, and similarly connected hacks get a nice taste of the action. Our federal government is now just a criminal conspiracy.

The rule of law has been dead for quite some time, not just in America… Ann Barnhardt closed her brokerage in pre 2008 siting it was dead and she could not protect the accounts properly.. Here is a more recent, but past post.

Nothing will be done.
Some 27 years ago there was a conspiracy, orchestrated by a New York public relations company Hill and Knowlton to lie the US into war on Iraq. The conspiracy included having the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador, under a false name, lie to Congress about Iraqi atrocities and show fake tv reports about it.

After the exposure, nothing was done. The people responsible should be getting out of jail about now, but nothing.

The Trump scandals are just one more example, nothing new . Nothing to see here, move along now.

Nevertheless….
Merry Christmas to all.

It was always a rule of men. ‘Laws’ are just a way of making sure that individual men are not held to account. It is simply not possible to craft a system of law that will prevent corrupt people from being corrupt. The corrupt figure out a way to either exploit ambiguities in the law or to break them outright and avoid punishment. The punishment for sedition includes execution. In a serious country, the people involved in this attempted coup under the color of law would be sitting in cells, awaiting either trial or an execution. The law is not… Read more »

Maybe they are sitting on this until next summer, and then spring the whole thing for maximum electoral impact. More likely nothing will come of it as the Deep State closes ranks to protect their own. Merry Christmas Z!

As others have mentioned it’s a Mexican standoff. Both sides waiting to see who blinks first. We all know what really needs to happen, but that means the wheels falling off this whole Crazy Train. The president would be within his rights to gather up all these treasonous bastards. Sadly these psychopaths are more than ready to bring the country down to save their own worthless hides. Asking one man to save whole country is not reasonable. The American people must want the reform. At least for my observation they remain blissfully ignorant. But enough of this Doom and Gloom… Read more »

In honor of Christmas, I would like to offer a white pill insight as a gift to all. But first the contrast.

What are Cloud People good at? Buying politicians.
What are politicians good at? Buying votes with taxpayer money.
What are DC insiders good at? Feeding at the public trough and cronyism.

And what are the dirt people in Middle America good at? Hunting. Which necessitates stealth and good aim.

Merry Christmas!

Assuming Barr is not running a con, what I think we may be witnessing is some score settling between the pro-Israel and pro-Iran factions of the Deep State. Brennan, Clapper and the rest of the Obama cabal clearly represent the latter, While Trump has just as clearly thrown in with Team Israel, if only to save his presidency. Explains his betrayal of his base, if nothing else. Interestingly, the only person who seems to straddle both sides of that fence is Hillary Clinton. There isn’t much chatter about her in regard to any investigation, despite much incriminating evidence. She might… Read more »

Barr is a cabal fixer. He was the AG Bush Sr. sent to Arkiesaw to tell gubna Bill to stick to money laundering the Mena funds through state bond purchases and stop hoovering (and cutting) the supply. Barr explained to Bill that he was the golden boy, next in line for top role in the ongoing theater production called ‘American democracy’ if he didn’t fuck up.

Barr’s dad hired Epstein to teach math at Dalton School on the Yupper East Side and turned a blind eye to Jeff’s screwing the kids.

Ho ho hos.

Z-man – Great overview of the scandal and coverup. Some of these dots definitely connect back to the so-called Patriot Act.

In the meantime it’s batten down the hatches, reef sail, and ride it out. We haven’t yet seen the eye of this most unpredictable storm. Best therapy I’ve found is to spin a Bing Crosby Christmas record and read aloud “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” to the family. Follow up with a tumbler (or 6) of eggnog spiked with Dickel #12.

Hold fast folks, and Merry Christmas to this fantastic community of Americans.

Merry Christmas. Before 30-50 people descend on the house, a couple of thoughts. Regarding Rogers–look up any of the clips where Rogers is testifying at the same table as Comey and Brennan and look at the body language. Rogers looks like he wants to reach over and strangle both of them. Seriously. Regarding Barr–am naturally a cynic, but Barr is the doppelgänger for a COO I worked directly for for years. Same appearance, mannerisms, speaking cadence. Both lawyers. Much of what I did was “clean up” work. He was very patient. Never played his hand before ready and I learned… Read more »

Merry Christmas first of all. A friend of a friend spent a number of years in forensic accounting and Z is absolutely correct. The rot goes much deeper than the things one finds today on the surface. Similar to the fact that the first time a person is arrested for a criminal act is very rarely the first time he committed the crime. The criminal has gotten away with it so long that they are oblivious to the fact that they will be ever be caught. I have no doubt that many of the cloud people in the beltway are… Read more »

Notice how the notion of generalizing Christmas into a generic, multi-faith holiday seems to creep in already in the 800s, indicating an earlier influx of Jews in Scandinavia than hitherto believed.

And now, if I may be so bold, a solid white pill In honor of the season. Here’s some wholesome Christmas music with solid musicality and without overdone production values.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uygvR_BoYrQ

Shows what is possible if the Pozz can be held at bay.

If you hate Lawrence Welk type marimba music, like I do, you can skip to the 13 min. and 39 min. marks once it starts up.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year

“ Either way, the rule of law is over and what comes next is the rule of men.” Men don’t surrender power, it must be taken from them as a rule with so few exceptions as to be mirable dictu, miracles, one cannot plan on miracles. Of course Barr won’t prosecute anyone. He’d be destroying his own system. Moreover he’s a displaced Catholic (so am I) and in America the Rule of Law is the official religio. Now here’s a wrinkle: said secular relgio is tied to sacred scrolls that have no replacement. Everyone still believes in them; also were… Read more »
