Hamlet at the Bureau

Thinking about what comes next in this most bizarre of campaign seasons, it occurs to me that this is a good lesson in how nothing exists in isolation. Every decision has consequences. Those consequences may not be obvious and they may not show up until much later, but no action exists without a reaction. It’s the old gag about the time traveler going into the past, stepping on a spider, only to return to a world ruled by super intelligent insects. It is formally known as the Butterfly Effect.

In the early days of the Clinton administration, Team Clinton hoped to put a fellow crook in the job of attorney general. That way, they could make sure they had a member of the family blocking the inevitable criminal probes that follow the Clintons around like an odor.They tried Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, but both failed to get confirmed. They settled on Janet Reno, a dull-witted bureaucrat just happy to have the work. They put her in the job for the same reason crooked southern politicians install their retarded brother in-law as sheriff. She was too dumb to get curious.

It mostly worked, but her stupidity also kept her from blocking cases that would prove to be embarrassing to the family. A real pro in the job would have headed off the intern problem, for example, before that got to Ken Starr. In fact, Kimba Wood is clever enough to have quashed the whole special prosecutor thing entirely. In other words, putting a stupid person in the job worked up until they needed a clever person in the job. You can be sure that Janet Reno does not get Solstice cards from the Clinton family.

Team Obama tabbed James Comey to the job of Director of the FBI primarily because he was harmless. Republicans had no problems with him and Democrats were not afraid of him. That’s not to say he is a crook. He’s just one of those careerists, who make a point of doing no more than the job requires. You run into thee guys all over government because they never get curious and ask too many questions. Politicians love these guys because they look like Boy Scouts, but they never cause any trouble.

For most of what the FBI does, having a straitlaced guy like Comey at the top works just fine. He’s an able administrator, who will be respected by his staff for being fair and sticking to the rules. His lack of political ambition means he can get along with the rank and file. So much of what the FBI does is just process, they need process guys to make sure the processes are followed. The Bureau has not been the swashbuckling crime fighters we see in TV for generations. It’s mostly bureaucrats processing paper.

The decision to put him in the top job looked like a genius move until last week. Having a go-along-to-get-a-long guy handling the Clinton problem made it easy to push him into a favorable decision. The trouble is, he is an honest guy with a conscience and apparently his conscience finally got the better of him. The same qualities that made it easy for the politicians to push him around, made it easy for his subordinates to push him to take on the Clinton Crime Family in the most spectacular way imaginable.

My bet is more than a few people in the Obama White House are thinking they should have found a crook to put into that job. If not a crook, at least someone with ambition for a life in DC after his term at the Bureau was up. That’s the kind of guy who would look for a way to make everyone happy, because he wants friends in town, not enemies. Comey is looking a lot like a guy who will be happy to retire to some small college job teaching law, after he finishes up his public service at the Bureau.

Now the Democrats have the worst possible problem. When they want to train all of their weapons on Trump and his defects, they now have to peel off a few divisions to attack Comey and the FBI. The trouble with that is it means this story stays on the front page. The Clinton campaign is about focusing everyone’s attention on Trump’s flaws so people don’t notice her corruption and unpleasantness. Now they have to choice but to talk about her corruption and everyone gets reminded of her unpleasantness.

What makes this even worse for Clinton is the subtext of this election is the systemic rot in the form of lying and rule breaking. The reason Trump’s line about the system being rigged resonates is most people think the pols are lying and the media is covering for them. This is the sort of story that presses on that wound. In the fullness of time, the face of this era of corruption will be Hillary Clinton. She is everything that is wrong with politics. This e-mail caper and the current drama over it just reminds everyone of why they’re pissed off.

This is a long running war of information. It is a war that the common man won only to lose later. The introduction of the internet has created a much faster moving information war that we are witnessing today. It is nuts and dangerous, but we live it every day.

The *ONLY* reason Comey rolled over is because the rank and file FBI Agents were gonna blow the whistle on the Lizard Queen and him. (It should be remembered that Comey was never a line agent, which also fueld the dissent within the ranks.)

I’m actually suprised it took so long.

It looks to me like all of the Huma/Hilary emails are on the computer Huma shared with Little Dickie. Also that she was copied not only on all of Hilary’s other emails but on everyone else’s on the team, including the Clinton Foundation people, as well. 650k is a lot of emails. Team Hilary knows Comey can’t release them as they surely contain classified info, which means he’d be indicted.

It’s not uncommon for senior executives to have every email they send or receive automatically copied to their executive assistant. I don’t think the FBI worries about this if they do a scan and notice it’s all the emails the FBI already had. Sounds like they found a new stash.

A lot of those 650,000 emails might not be Abedin’s, but I bet a shitload of them are those mysteriously deleted 30,000 emails from Hillary’s illegal private server.

What if Huma was hacking all those emails for nefarious purposes, maybe even Wiener copied them as either standard backing up their computers as a lot of people do, and Huma didn’t know it. It wouldn’t be a great leap in deduction by a trained computer forensic specialist to figure the sequences of events. I kind of keep asking myself why Wiener has 650,000 emails related to this whole scandal to begin with on his computer. That alone would be an answer that tells a tale.

Comey is a wealthy corporate slave class federal Bunny Inspector in so over his head so deep he looks like a shell shocked deer in the headlights between a rock and a runaway regime train.
He might be trying out of conscience to do the right thing after really screwing the pooch, but in reality he might as well be trying to stuff spaghetti up a wild cats arse inside a phone booth.

Hundreds of Agents have tended resignations as a result.

I love to study faces and believe that Chelsea really is the daughter of Bill Clinton. Her face, especially the bulbous nose, which has been “tweaked” by a NY plastic surgeon a couple of times I would guess, as has her receding chin, and the masses of curly hair, although Hillary has “good” hair for someone her age (probably enhanced with extensions) undeniably spell Bill’s input. Webster has a very different nose. I realize he has those strange lips, but . . . . Her legs, also, are decent — no kankles — more like Bill’s.

Hamlet? I was thinking more of Bartleby the Scrivener. Perhaps the heretofore “industrious” Comey has reached the point where “he would prefer not to” continue to be a corrupted cog in the Clintonworld machinery. In his now depressed, delusional state he has decided he would rather be one of the FBI gang than the Clinton gang. He has not thought through what happens to people who are corrupted by and then try to leave the Clinton crime family.

Pretty dead on. Reno was pretty witless down in Miami in the early part of her career (I grew up there). Baird actually doesn’t strike me as that political a player, though only knew her well in a business context. Simplest explanation with Comey is he went along to get along using the “non-interference” in elections as his ethical justification. Then the guys on the Wiener case present him with clear cut evidence of just how badly the Clinton’s schlonged him, despite bending over backwards on immunities, interviews and everything else. Sic semper Clintonis strikes again. Comey got pissed, the… Read more »

Geraint Parry (Political Elites): “The appearance of democratic majority control over the minority [the elites] is deceptive.The minority is in a position to manipulate the electoral process to its own ends by means of a range of measures from sheer coercion of voters, through bribery or the skilled use of propaganda to the selection of candidates. The sovereign electorate will ‘choose’ its leaders from those acceptable to the elite… the dominant minority cannot be controlled by the majority, whatever democratic mechanisms are used.” Maybe not this time. The elites wanted to cash in on the desire of the commoners to… Read more »

I still find it hard to believe that a major party nominated a candidate so completely corrupt – and that people are willing to ignore it. If she wins, a Constitutional crisis begins the day after she’s elected. Does Obama pardon her? Does she pardon herself the day she’s inaugurated?

Is it even a question that Congress will have to investigate and ultimately impeach her (if she doesn’t croak)?

Not only willing to ignore it. They believe that Trump would be more dangerous in office than her.

All of the pressure is on hillary now. Even the friendly press is being forced to abandon her. This is the week we get her final meltdown, and epic unhinged foul mouthed rant — live on the air! Or she actually goes into a coma or something. And DJT just keeps on takin’ care of business while the Clinton dumpster fire burns on,,,

Not sure the media will abandon. The remind me of “Vito the Killer Pimp” from Risk Business. Trump seriously fucks with their livelihood. They don’t like that and will fight like badgers to prevent it.

The Clinton Crime Syndicate is a fried goose. All Hillary is doing is crying “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy!” The death screams of the biggest family of whores this country has ever known. Supported by the dumbest and most complicit of populations. What a joke of a “progressive” citizenry we have. Shameful and shameless. And while I am at it, I would like to point out that many in the media have taken to calling Hillary Pigpen. I cringe at that because it 1. attacks a much loved Peanuts character which is a part of our culture, and 2. Hillary may… Read more »

From the way she behaves, it’s Alt-Right, and Pepe she will try to hunt down and exterminate. Remember how they both where pluperfex deranged about “The Militia’s” in the 90’s.

Incredible. The tail rotor just failed on the Democrats helo in a high hover under torque with a huge , heavy pallet of deception slung load and they can’t cut it loose…. it’s coming down and mostly uncontrolled now… Comey lost the ability to control this. His #2 is corrupted by political donations to campaign AND then making curious decisions regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation. THEN, the REAL cops a layer or two down in OTHER divisions of the FBI ( not the public disclosure limited email team) working with the NYPD got the gold mine. Weiner’s ” Insurance Policy”.… Read more »

Yep – I think it became irresistible. The NYPD expected a flood of kiddie porn when they cracked his open PC. Instead they got a giant pile of classified documents and Clinton dirt. I find this absolutely hilarious.

What’s more entertaining and gratifying, the auto-deligitimization, or watching them scurry like cockroaches?
There are some pretty sharp characters out there with a bone inter teeth gas lighting these crooked perfumed mandarin’s with a vengeance. Look at the scale of hacked emails, agitprop from Pepe to what Trumps puts out, Project Veritas, Judicial Watch, True the vote, I mean the range of pushback and payback is mind-blowing.

Hillary’s campaign has entered the Melville stage, where she thrashes around with a harpoon stuck in her flank, dragging a boatload of others down with her. Man, I hope we learn the real story behind all these election shenanigans, one day. If Trump were behind any of this, he has left no “prints” behind at all. Maybe his son in law had some Mosssad contacts (no one tell King George, he is already frothing) 😛

The Clintons must have a large collection of dirt they could trade for immunity. If they could rat out Soros, the (D)irtbag machine and all the (D)irtbag appointees in Washington, this show could get really good.

Hey, don’t discount who has been “assisting” all the “suicidal” bankers dropping out of windows, er I mean like flies. Somebody higher up the transnationalist food chain is cleaning up loose ends and possible lips. Soro’s has been instrumental, or rather the fundamental agent of the destruction for profit of how many sovereign economies? This is a megalomaniac who was raised by Nazi’s running a concentration camp. They guy is is beyond insane. His States Attourneys General project has been a brilliant insurgency to undermine the rule of law and implement the marxist ideology of usurpation via the “Top Down,… Read more »

Nobody really in charge ever gets their hands dirty, they hire people to employ people to get their hands dirty. Soros is a hired gun or possibly a hired gun’s hired gun, and the minions he employs are the hired gun’s hired guns or possible the hired gun’s hired gun’s hired guns.

If Trump were not running for God-Emperor, would Clinton be going down in flames? If the answer is no, it’s because he is ultimately responsible. The big man does not need to order the ship to change course by one degree starboard, nor does he need to order the taking of a beach, only does he need to give the order to conquer a country. The general takes the order and every man down the line receives an order and translates it into the order he needs to give to his subordinates in order for that invasion to be achieved.… Read more »

It just can’t get any better than this. It can’t, can it? No movie director with a script about government corruption would think up anything this wild, because the viewers would not be able to suspend their disbelief.

Truth is stranger than fiction.
Through history, it seems it is some unsuspected innocuous seeming person or source that is the catalyst which brings down dictatorships.

0bama just threw Hillary under the bus: “White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the the Administration will neither defend nor criticize Comey’s decision to inform Congress about the new Hillary Clinton-related emails. He added that the White House has no recommendations for Comey over what information to give to the public, regarding the Clinton-related email probe. Earnest said the White House has no independent knowledge as to why Comey decided to send Congress a letter about the emails. He added that the president believes the FBI director is a man of integrity and good character.” http://www.cnbc.com/2016/10/31/white-house-will-not-defend-criticize-fbis-decision-to-tell-congress-about-clinton-email-decision.html Translation: the president has… Read more »

Smells like cover your ass time. There is no unrelated, isolated, singular people or events in obama land. Every consequential politically powerful or influential executive, judicial, and political position in this government is occupied by a complicit member or actor in the regime. It is how they have the power of the federal government to do as they please as we see every day to begin with. No position has been left to chance some outsider or rouge could upset their rice bowl and power.

The mess they are all in is, they have no idea what’s been hacked or what is the next email to come out. The upper echelons of this administration seemingly used personal email for all sorts of communication and collusion. They’ve all got to be a little circumspect just because the jig may very well be up for scores of them….including Obama. ( legacy… not jail time…. he’ll skate free )
