What Lies Beneath

An axiom of politics is that scandals are about sex or money. The politician at the center of a scandal got caught with a live boy or a dead girl. The public loves those stories, so it becomes a scandal, even when the politician is from the inner party, as was the case with Bill Clinton. Alternatively, the politician confused his money with public money or someone else’s money and someone blabbed. This is almost always the heart of local political scandals, where political machines run on graft.

It’s something to keep in mind as the years long FBI scandal has apparently entered a new phase during the lock down. The General Flynn cases was surprisingly dismissed, after a document dump by the Department of Justice revealing gross misconduct by the FBI and DOJ. Everyone sort of knew Flynn was setup, as is always the case when people are charged with lying to the FBI, but the extent of the entrapment scheme appears to lead to the inner circle of former President Obama.

Then there is the release of the transcripts of testimony to the House committee investigating the Russian collusion hoax. At the time, everyone in official Washington was required to pretend it was legitimate, so the House brought in over 50 people to answer questions under oath, behind closed doors. Those mostly unredacted transcripts have proven to be revelatory. Everything about the official narrative, according to the sworn testimony of the people involved, was entirely fake.

Probably the most amazing thing in those documents thus far is the fact that all of these people have been able to maintain a complex series of lies. The old adage about three can keep a secret if two are dead does not apply here. It’s not just the people at the core of the story either. Peripheral people, who have plenty of reasons to run to the media and tell their story have maintained a rigid discipline not seen since the heyday of the Italian mafia. Even now, they still refuse to rat out their friends.

That is the part of this that need special emphasis. Why are all of these people risking their freedom to maintain an obvious lie? Take, for example, the story about the Russians hacking the DNC e-mail system and handing the contents to Wikileaks. Just a few months ago they were repeating the claim that they were brought into investigate the crime and found that the Russians had gained access to the server. Yet, they testified under oath that they found no such information.

Putting that aside, the question is what was driving all of this from the start. Sex and money are not the motivators. The other thing that drives political scandal is power, which makes some sense here. The Clinton campaign, like the Nixon campaign in the 1972 election, was not content to just win with their massive advantages. Instead they decided to cheat with help from their friends in the intelligence services and apparently people in the White House. That may be the starting point.

The trouble with that theory is Team Obama really never liked Hillary Clinton all that much and did little to help her campaign. While it is possible that the people in the FBI and CIA were happy to help, it seems unlikely that the White House was going to be enthusiastic for such a caper. The bizarre Susan Rice e-mail to herself regarding the Flynn entrapment scheme suggests the White House really hated Flynn and was willing to do anything to keep him from re-entering government.

Adding to the intrigue is the fact that the DOJ in their filing to dismiss the Flynn case left breadcrumbs leading to that memo. There was plenty of information of general misconduct by the FBI and the DOJ, as well as Flynn’s original defense team, to warrant dropping the case. The government could have done one of those dramatic “to protect the integrity of the system” announcements that would leave open the issue of Flynn’s guilt, but close the issue from further discussion.

One possibility here is the Obama administration had been exploiting a workaround to the limits on domestic spying. By making Flynn the target of an investigation, the FBI could monitor his electronic communications and track his movements. This means they could know who he was meeting with as a member of the Trump team and monitor what he was discussing with them. In other words, the entire fraudulent Flynn case was just a way to spy on the campaign and later the transition team.

This would be the second and possibly third example of this play. It is quite clear that they used the same tactic on Carter Page. They faked up a case for him being an international spymaster, so they could monitor him and everyone in contact with him during the campaign. They may have been working the same angle on George Papadopoulos, the low-level foreign policy adviser. In other words, this may be a pattern of behavior that was standard operating procedure.

This ultimately may be what the Durham investigation is about in the end. A domestic spying system had evolved in which private companies worked with public officials to get around domestic spying limits and put the results to use for the inner party. The FBI and CIA would make raw information of their legitimate surveillance available to private contractors, who would leak it to the press or party members. Those press reports were then used to obtain warrants for wider domestic surveillance.

That could be the power motivator behind this. The reason for the Russian collusion hoax was to cover up the operation from the Trump administration. Team Mueller could threaten anyone making the wrong noises about it and the whole thing would remain hidden from the administration and the public. Still, that does not explain the amazing discipline of the conspirators. At this stage, a private party like Crowdstrike should be looking to cut a deal with the Feds. Yet they are sticking to their story.

One possibility is that there really is something much bigger at the heart of this conspiracy than simple spy games. Maybe the Seth Rich assassination looms larger than anyone realizes. Maybe that secret e-mail system running out of Hillary Clinton’s spare toilet is involved. Maybe it is simply ideological fervor. We know from their private communications that most of these people were fanatics. Their Trump hatred was just one aspect of their zeal to serve the inner party.

Government will always be corrupt, as men are not angels. Whether it is the lust for power or the temptations that come with power, corruption is part of the human condition. A much more serious problem is a government overrun by fanatical ideologues. That may be the heart of this scandal. The long march through the institutions has been followed by a radicalization of the institutions. The inner party now operates like a religious cult, rather than a political operation.

I was there during Katrina — shortly after the storm blew through. I ran a small Taskforce. There was overreach by the military organizations early on, and things surely unconstitutional (there was no declaration of martial law). There was also a lot of ineptitude and stupidity involved. And contrary to the statement above tarring all military leaders and their subordinates, there was substantial and successful push back by military personnel against what was occurring — both in organization and operations of the military forces on the ground there. Enough said.

{sigh} I do not believe that such activity will be reduced EVEN WITH serious consequences (which I do not consider at all likely). Severity of penalties does not deter proscribed behavior. Penalties deter behavior only to the degree that they are likely to accrue to a given act. It is the likelihood of successful prosecution and not the severity of penalties which modifies behavior. In the real world, no act is truly illegal unless the perpetrator is successfully prosecuted for it.

True. Severity minus probability of punishment is of course problematic. What the public sees is that ostensibly “good” people are preyed upon, and the ramifications quite severe when one tries to go against the swamp. But the ramifications for being a swamp monster are never apparent. In the end, the lesson is learned for the common folk—bend the knee or else.

The blogger Whiskey used to have good stuff up about how students from schools like Carnegie Mellon and Harvey Mudd were regularly cleaning the clocks of those in the Ivies and near-Ivies in every measurable area. Of course, the reason to go to these exclusive schools is for the advantages conferred which not only are not measurable but can’t even really be mentioned. If you get jammed up or caught at something and the judge was the oar behind you on the rowing team, you might have a better shot in a case. “I went to school with your son”… Read more »

“These exclusive schools” haven’t been exclusive for years;-) I am a graduate of one of these and there were a few daughters/granddaughters of early grads in my class, what today are termed “legacies,” but probably not more than 20%. Their presence was actually an asset for the school, as it gave the newbies an opportunity to learn the ways of the elite, their stylistic tastes, manner of speaking, sports preferences and the liberal arts academic pursuits that would serve them well in their lives after college, including multiple opportunities to meet someone of the opposite sex AND similar background.

Interesting.

Eric Weinstein (PHD matematics Harvard, managing director of Theil Capital) would probably disagree. Had an excellent interview with J.D. Vance of “Hillbilly Elegy” fame; both thought this:

Top Ivy league colleges are 50/50; half legacy students who just want the feather in the cap but could care less about it, really. Other half are the truly brilliant, and need to be nurtured as a precious resource.

Problem: The legacy half is quickly superseding the brilliant part. It’s a real issue, and there doesn’t seem to be much stopping it.

Unz carried a recent analysis. 6% of merit-matriculation CalTech students were small hat wearers. 26% of Harvard undergrads claimed the caps. That’s 20% small hat nepotism at Harvard, where the student numbers are greater than CalTech. Right there is where authentic elite status ends and the end was in sight circa 1960. My wife is a Harvard prodigy, my nephews graduated Ivies, the youngest was a Princeton football stud, I have close family teaching at Ivies including Harvard, and many in my family excelled at MIT.

“Coming Part”, Charles Murray’s less-controversial book 🙂 says he was a Harvard student, 1950s (?) and the salient point is that in ancient times the Ivy League was not the super-premium it was to become in the late 20th century. Main theme of his book is America was much more egalitarian three generations back. Super smart usually stayed in home town, instead of being “bought” and carted off to one of the power centers.

Ron Unz’s theory of political success based on blackmail probably is also salient for the staying power of Rs like McCain and Lindsay Graham. Graham is a shill for the Lobby, which is part of it, but he also probably has that tag as a “reasonable republican” because he has a few dead boys in his closet. One can also become a reasonable Republican by stabbing fellow party members in the back repeatedly (Romney has been absolved for the sin of running against Black Jesus since he tried to take down Trump).

One thing left out is that the government got a subpoena to monitor network traffic from Trump tower over a manufactured interaction between the Trump organization and a Russian bank. All modern corporate phone systems are voice over IP. By monitoring network traffic out of that building, they would have had all of the voice traffic as well as the “banking transactions”. Maybe that is one of the reasons that the Trump organization vacated the tower so precipitously after the briefing from the head of the NSA..

Well, if Nazi is short for National Socialist, I have heard our system best described as Capital Socialism – Cazi. Not really sure if the government controls the corporations, vice-versa, or they are so intertwined you can hardly distinguish them. The last being the most likely imho.

In this system, the government and large private corps work in tandem to rule, giving just enough social stability to the plebes to keep them under control, and either exterminating or bribing the more troublesome sectors of plebes. It may not be the most brutal form of slavery, but it is soul crushing.

Seems like the “Ahmaud Arbery” case is some kind of diversion, perhaps as a threat to Trump that there is a direct possibility of violent black riots if Obama is locked up.

The epidemic of criminality that occurred during the Obama Administration cannot be overstated, and it was both vast and extremely damaging.

Regarding a path forward one thing I think like minded people need to do is to start congregating in particular jurisdictions so they can take over local gov. Start in states where 2nd is still observed.

I don’t think it’s fear. The state has demonstrated numerous times that it can and will kill to pretect itself without consequences to itself, and, that it will also take care of it’s own. So you work and depend upon an entity that is entirely predictable and quite benevolent. Fear is only for someone who actually becomes a traitor to their way of life. Flynn did not share their ways but he also did not properly fear them.

Been meaning to sign up here for a while, thanks for putting all this effort into providing an oasis of sanity in the vast desert of blasted imbecility. I used to imagine there were smart string-pullers at some level of the hierarchy, able to observe reality and make reasonable, if self-serving, decisions. The last couple months have demonstrated definitively that we are allowing ourselves to be led by morons. They are ideologues for sure but they are also fundamentally effeminate and therefore suffer the utter deficiencies in the power of reasoning that have been observed and commented upon for thousands… Read more »

>fundamentally effeminate Well, sort of. I think the really dangerous issue is weakness, or self-proclaimed-but-genuinely-believed weakness, the latter which is even worse. The Captain America narrative where (Jewish, of course) scientist Abraham Erskine tells Steve Rogers that he was selected because he was physically weak is the prime example of the weakness=virtue myth: This is why you were chosen. Because a strong man, who has known power all his life, will lose respect for that power. But a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows compassion. This is bullshit. Many weak men have complexes and neuroses because of… Read more »

It’s the universities. You have a government of people who have matriculated from American universities designed to create a maoist like conformity across the upper and upper-middle classes. That sameness is uniquely exhibited by the Obamas and the whites that like them. You’re not running to the media because you’re defending your class, status and position. Plenty of people make more money than them, have bigger and better houses, and better lives, but they have no insider status, therefore they’re just seen as garish rich people.

Semi-OT to yesterday’s post about joggers, there are goodwhites all over LinkedIn virtue-signaling how, “open season on young black men is not okay.”

This is a real problem because these people are your white, upper middle class demographic that make $75k-300k per annum and have broad social networks and a fair amount of influence in their communities. I also see them as the demographic that is still most willing to swallow the Establishment narrative hook, line, and sinker.

Our local government is corrupt but it works if you know that before going in. Idealistic souls thinking they will succeed with hard work and merit soon find out that’s not the way it works.

Government employees who have been clued in from the start and quickly get with the “program” are the most successful. It’s just the way they do business.

To my mind the most significant feature of all this skulduggery is that members of the Deep State know dam’ well there is almost zero chance they will be punished for their actions. They understand they are entirely above the law, which allows them free rein for their renegade actions. As Z himself noted in an earlier article, the system is incapable of reforming itself because it refuses to punish its own kind. Without some sort of purge of the Deep State, the Deep State will eventually topple a president and install one of its own. At that point, American… Read more »

Super-thoughtful essay, starting with an implicit question: “Probably the most amazing thing…thus far is the fact that all of these people have been able to maintain a complex series of lies.” How could that be ? The answer is at the end: We are dealing with “fanatical ideologues” motivated by burning hatred. In a world where HUNDREDS of millions of innocent people have been slaughtered in the name of obviously fraudulent ideology, is it any surprise these demons can maintain a wall of silence?

Back in my teaching days, a colleague asked me to help him move this antique couch his wife had just purchased. I showed up at their house, and could see the problem straight off — the couch was 40″ (or whatever it was) at its narrowest point, while the doorway was 35″ (or whatever). I’ll never forget the look my buddy gave me. Long story short, the wife — who, like him, taught microbiology at the local university — simply would not accept the self-evident fact that the couch wouldn’t fit.

I think a lot of this behavior is based on a couple interrelated factors.

It may be “religious” fanatacism, as Zman posits. I agree that it’s not lust or greed, those historical drivers of corruption. The Epstein/Pizzagate/Spirit Cooking angle is a distraction precisely because perversion titillates the masses. But an equally plausible explanation for the corruption is simple stupidity. Obama’s circle of advisors was filled with joggers and jogger-worshipping types. Apply Hanlon’s Razor: not malice but stupidity. There is no Magic Jogger. Obama and his minions were a ship of fools who mistakenly thought they were clever. Time and the document trail has proven otherwise.
