Unraveling Impeachment

In the days after the election, when the Left was howling about Russian collusion, it was clear they were hiding something. The theory they were pitching was so ridiculous, it had to be about something else. The mendacious mediocrities in mass media could be convinced it was real, but that’s their job. Normal people always knew the claims were absurd. We later learned that the Russian hoax was part of an effort to conceal the seditious plot by the intelligence community.

The Russian collusion hoax is a good place to start when trying to unravel the latest impeachment panic. That caper was about getting a special prosecutor named before Team Trump could figure out what was happening. Mueller, the horse-faced flunky, would provide cover, while greasy operatives on his staff would hoover up anything related to the FBI caper. The whole affair would be sequestered while they figured out how to get rid of Trump and anyone too curious about what happened.

Put another way, the point of the caper was never really about Trump. He was just a useful pivot point in order to address a different issue. They were much more concerned about people like Devon Nunes, who were doggedly pursuing the case. The special prosecutor was a way to end-run Congress and pests like Nunes, so the whole thing could be hidden from public view. If not for a few Congressional Republicans, there would never have been a need for the Russian collusion hoax.

It’s pretty clear that this new gambit is being run by many of the same people who were involved in the original caper. It has the same signature. There is a fake whistle blower, who was purpose built for the task. His claims were systematically leaked to the media, so the Democrats could pretend to be outraged and demand an investigation. The media was ready for a full onslaught of impeachment stories. Like the Russian collusion hoax, this one is highly coordinated with the press.

If the last impeachment hoax was about covering up the FBI spying and seditious plot to overturn the election, the question is what are they trying to cover for now? The original investigation of the FBI seems to be heading in some strange directions after Barr took over the case. Reportedly he is on official business in Italy. That has the Democrats going bonkers, as it suggests he is looking into the CIA role in the Russian collusion hoax. They seem very worried about Bill Barr all of a sudden.

The thing that has been ignored that probably is important is that Pelosi was trying to put an end to the impeachment stuff until recent. When she went to meet with her caucus over this whistle blower stuff, the pundits assumed she was going to squash the whole thing. Instead, she came out of those meetings fully on board with not only impeachment, but fast tracking it. Maybe her caucus was in revolt and she felt she had no choice or maybe she learned something and felt she had no choice.

Regardless of the internal dynamics of the party, this latest impeachment frenzy seems to be related to what Barr has been up to lately. This post at Conservative Tree-house goes into a lot of detail, but what stands out is the Mifsud item. It was his involvement with Papadopoulos that allegedly set off the FBI probe. If he is actually a CIA asset used as part of the larger plot, then that changes things considerably. It now brings the CIA into the mix as co-conspirators in the seditious plot to overturn the election.

That could be why the CIA had one of their people work with the Democrats to create the whistle blower story. They are worried that they are now in some jeopardy. Their concern may be that they have been secretly listening to Trump’s official calls with foreign leaders. Notice that the Democrats are now claiming the transcript the White House provided is a forgery. They could only think that if they were told there is stuff missing from the transcript, by someone who saw the original.

In other words, the first impeachment hoax was about covering up the FBI plot to overturn the 2016 election. This latest impeachment hoax is about muddying the waters in order to conceal CIA involvement. The hope is the Democrats and the media can someone gain jurisdiction over the whole thing and prevent public disclosures that will be very bad for the CIA. The FBI spying on politicians is bad, but the CIA working for foreign countries to spy on politicians would be devastating.

The thing that does not make a lot of sense is that the Congress cannot take over an investigation like a special prosecutor. Perhaps that’s what the game is here. They will dirty up Barr while claiming to investigate this latest hoax, then demand another special prosecutor. That would explain why they are in such a rush to get started. As we saw with the first hoax, this one may not be about Trump at all. It may be about taking out someone who is asking the wrong questions about the right people.

To be clearer about the point, the United States is internally weaker now than the Soviet Union was in 1922 when the last White elements were forced out. But, no, nothing institutional like a free press or honest judiciary is an impediment and there could be a horrible miscalculation because of it. In fact, that horrible miscalculation already has been made because the mistrust and disgust is irreparable. The usual go-to has been to start a war but a substantial portion of the nation now would embrace a humiliating defeat.

@ Calsdad “The reason why the Commies hate the Nazis so much – probably has a lot to do with that one fundamental difference.” One of the greatest historical lies of the 20th century is that fascism and communism lie at opposing ends of the political spectrum, i.e., fascism on the right, communism on the left. In actuality, classical fascism and communism share much more in common than they differ, and all of the important early fascists – including the single individual most-responsible for its founding, Benito Mussolini – saw fascism as the ultimate refinement of communism.

An interesting conjecture cum thought-experiment.

I spent decades as an enthusiastic supporter of the Republican Party and the Pentagon. At this point, however, a humiliating defeat of Imperial Forces would be more satisfying than alarming. But such a circumstance could lead to God-awful death and destruction. We will, I suspect, eventually see it.

The Soviet Union was also subsidized by the Western powers to a large extent. Both at it’s initial formation – and afterwards. The amount of military hardware supplied to the USSR during WW2 by the US was massive. And I don’t think they ever paid anything back. The USSR was also sustained by a huge cadre of spies within the US government itself. That supplied them with intelligence on political matters – as well as military espionage. The US has been pissing people off around the world for a good 100 years now. And the elites running the show are… Read more »

I’ve always thought that a lot of what’s driving these impeachment capers is outright complicity on the part of that weasel Paul Ryan and “Cocaine” Mitch in spying on the Trump campaign. As I understand it, Congressional leaders of both parties are regularly briefed on the machinations of the intelligence community. As not only GOP leaders but majority leaders, Ryan and McConnell would have been in all these meetings. I think they were not only completely aware of the FBI and CIA spying, but they were actively backing it. They figured like everyone else in D.C. that Cankles would win,… Read more »

The problem for McConnell is that he and Madame Chao also have well-chronicled histories of public corruption. Can he even be blackmailed on this point? I also have absolutely no doubt, if it could be done in secret, that upwards of 40 GOP senators would vote to remove. But even one or two defections will be met with fierce resistance from their voters and putative constituents.

Again, even given the stupidity and carelessness of the Deep State, this has the smell of haste and desperation.

And not just Brennan. Couple of dorm commies I kew in the ’60s ended up CIA. No FBI (like Comey the dorm commie) that I know of though.

@ Range Front Fault John Brennan is a double-whammy in that he is not only a communist, but a covert to Sunni Islam as well. As a younger man working for the agency and stationed in Saudi Arabia, Brennan was the object of a special influence operation by Saudi intelligence to “turn” Brennan by convincing him to become a Muslim, and therefore one of their own. The operation was successful, and Brennan has been one of theirs for years now. Why do you think Obama hired him? Answer: Because he had all of the “right” boxes checked off. After eight… Read more »

Don’t forget that after Trump wanted Brennan’s security clearance revoked, his own staff “slow-walked” the request so that more than a year later Brennan still had it. (He probably still has it for all I know.) There are too many NTs on his staff.

Stumbled upon info lately (it’s all over the net; I just hadn’t seen it) that Brennan was on obama’s campaign committee, that he was in charge of seeing that no documentation got out about O’s past, that he both “cauterized” passport files and was on the job when the two men who had dug into those files were found murdered…. And, that following all that, as soon as O got in, Brennan got a job in the WH. Oh, and that O spent 36.2 million his last year in office seeing that all his officials records, personal and relating to… Read more »

It’s driven by cynicism, hard earned cynicism. I expect nobody will be prosecuted, or even mildly rebuked or reprimanded over what went down. If I’m wrong, and people like Comey and Brennan get frog marched into prison, this will make me happy. But I keep my expectations low. Which, ironically, is what has helped me weather the ups and downs of Trump. I never had high expectations beyond his revealing the GOP is fraudulent, Paul Ryan is a duplicitous liar, and that there really is a Government Party. Particularly the latter.

The IG report was delivered to Barr, so it could also be a ruse to keep that report and its implications out of the public consciousness.

A few notes for consideration in no particular order of importance. 1) Trump has been considering running for President for >5 years, per Limbaugh, a confidant of his.

Did he see something very large and very deleterious to the country? 2) The DNC office-boy who died in D.C.

Candidate Trump gave a speech in one of the Carolinas in the October before the election — totally out of his usual style for rallies — where he talked seriously, mostly on prompter, for one time only, about how this election would decide vital issues. He went into unusually frank details about globalism and those supporting it (even including names), then by next rally was back to normal. Then the day before Peloshiff started their latest CIA-induced “impeachment” campaign, he gave an anti-globalism speech at the UN touching on the same topics, going deeper than elected officials ever do about… Read more »

That’s drugged, disorganized, confused by propaganda, swamped by foreigners and even if it can overcome all that, it’s mostly powerless anyway, see the 2016 election.

Trump played footsie with Putin in late 2015, and when he took on Flynn, Page and Manifort (all with Russia connections) the Clinton campaign, the IC, and the media tried dirty up Trump with Muh Russia. When the Podesta emails got hacked in March 2016 they went to defcon 5 to create a distraction, in which Mifsud played a key role.
