One Week ago ex-Mueller prosecutor Brandon Van Grack abruptly withdrew from the Dept. Of Justice’s case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn with a one-sentence filing to the D.C. District Court that gave no reason for his departure. Later that day the Justice Department announced it was moving to drop its case against Flynn because newly discovered FBI documents showed evidence of agents planning to entrap the Director of National Inteligence. Attorney General William Barr had asked the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, Jeffrey Jensen, to look into Flynn’s FBI interview, and after looking into it Jensen told the AG to drop the case. Acting on that recommendation will put AG Barr in the history books but We the People have yet to see how that history will be written.
Former CIA chief John Brennan was not happy about HIS unfolding story, but history has never been very kind to the O’Brennan’s of this world. On Sunday #FakeNews Chuck Todd showed a clip of the AG musing on his own place in history and Barr said that “history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.” It should be noted that history, from the time of Herodotus and Thucydides up to our present day, is not written by “righteous winners” but, in almost every case, by lickspittle losers. It is one of the persistent wonders of human life that those who take it upon themselves to record the events of our world are exactly the kind of people who a normal person would discount and ignore. In what must be some twisted form of revenge these nerds misrepresent events, ignore vital character traits in their subjects and outright lie about the nature of mankind and reality and thereby draw a map of the past that leads to hunger, illness and death.
For those who crave true history the mystics, poets and philosophers are, on balance, a better guide but their lesson is esoteric and told through symbolic allusion. Challenging to comprehend and, when you consider the probability of human error or misunderstanding, not much more reliable in relaying the ‘truth” than the bookish historians. With the invention of video tape the modern world has produced something unique in it’s transmission of a mediated “reality” that can shock the senses with its stark rebuke of “history.” As an example of this phenomenon the March 20, 2017 testimony of James Comey, then Director of the FBI, to the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential race has few equals. 28 minutes in Comey drops the Mother Of All Bombs and admits that the FBI has opened a counter intelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in July, that It was still active 9 months on with no discernible end date.
This was a moment in US history when the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee should have turned to his Sargent at Arms and demanded the immediate arrest of the FBI Director for the crime of Treason and marched the lanky goofball out of the House chamber in handcuffs. A “counter intelligence” investigation – not a criminal investigation – so the whole operation was run from the shadow world of the IC, FISA and Deep State “lifers” (commonly called career public servants) who do their dirty work with no fear of accountability. The very idea of G-men investigating people running the campaign of the opposition party is so un-American and, on its face, so crooked that every politician from both parties should have attacked Comey with a blind justice furry. The sheepish acceptance of the “ongoing” investigation that started the day after Donald Trump officially secured the party nomination at the GOP convention says everything about who really runs the federal government.
“To put in a homely metaphor, I hate the New England Patriots, and no matter who they play, I’d like them to lose. And so I’m at the same time rooting against the Patriots and hoping their opponent beats them, ’cause there’s only two teams on the field.”FBI Director James Comey
House Intelligence Committee
March 20, 2017
Knowing what has been disclosed over the past 3 years about the FBI, the FISC and the IC it is particularly troubling to watch the sworn testimony of Jim Comey because he is shown to be a sociopathic liar who dissembles without conscience. At 1:25 Comey repeatedly confirms that the FBI will NOT investigate who leaked the unmasked names of Flynn’s confidential communication. At 2:57 Comey uses the “ongoing” investigation as an excuse to not answer questions about Obama’s participation in the unmasking of Flynn. Towards the end of his testimony at 5:04 Comey describes the FBI warnings to the DNC about hacking threats but admits that his “investigators” never examined the breached server. Instead, the FBI – the premier law enforcement organization in the world – relied on a forensic exam by a DNC friendly firm called CrowdStrike that took 10 months to report their findings. Watching the 2017 testimony with the 2020 vision of FBI malfeasance and government collaboration with the plotters it is hard not to feel a sickening doom as three uncomfortable truths are revealed:
- Everyone in DC lied about the Russia Collusion Hoax and, In this case, everyone means EVERYONE. The politicians from both parties, the corrupt corporate news and the DC establishment, otherwise known as the Administrative State (deep state) all pushed the Russian collusion narrative. The people in the leadership of all these institutions – the party bosses, media owners, intelligence community ALL KNEW it was false from the start. They ALL lied, shamelessly, to the American people, and they’re still lying today. This point, that everyone in DC was willfully participating in a hoax, and were fully aware that there was never any evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign needs to be repeated over and over and over again until the public understands the absolute contempt these villains feel for normal people.
- The US government is spying on a anyone that matters in America. These FISA requests are approved with no justification – rubber-stamped by hack federal judges who (obviously) will “believe” anything the FBI tells them. What is almost never mentioned about Carter Page and the injustice of spying on him based on flimsy Russian intelligence is that, under the law, the FBI is allowed to ALSO spy on others under the “two-hop” rule. Not only can the FBI tap the phones, intercept the emails, track the phone location of everyone Carter page communicated with in the Trump campaign, but they can also track anyone who communicated with those unfortunate people. If Carter Page communicated, in any form, with 100 members of the Trump campaign and those people in turn communicated, in any form, with an additional 100 people each then the pool of “free” citizens the FBI can legally spy on is 10,000. The FISA two-hop rule is like a virus, more contagious than COVID-19 and more dangerous for the country.
- Gen. Flynn set a trap for Comey, Clapper and Brennan that captured them and revealing this trophy to the American public is creating a constitutional crisis that will transform the republic. Flynn was a master spy who had worked with the Obama administration and IC community for years so there is no way he didn’t know how they were going to operate once Trump won the election. He’s got loyalists and friends embedded all throughout the DOJ and Intelligence Agencies and he probably knew that Obama had been spying on the campaign since July. When Jim Comey sends a rat-faced freak like Peter Strzok over to Flynn’s office for an informal conversation is there any chance that the new Director of National Intelligence didn’t know that he was being set up? Flynn has been dealing with the Stzok’s of this world for his entire career and it was probably pretty easy to initiate this sting with a few poorly chosen words or purposeful misdirections.
To put it in a “homely metaphor“ James Comey hates patriots who believe in the US Constitution, the rule of law and impartial justice. He hates them the way Vladimir Putin hates Hillary Clinton which is a deep, burning eternal hate that is so wild and irrational the Russian would actually prefer to see a complete unknown like Donald J Trump rest his finger on the nuclear button than see Her become the First Woman President. The only honest moment of his congressional testimony is when Comey admitted to hating the New England Patriots – of all the possible metaphors to choose from the FBI Director chose “patriots” as the object of his hatred – and that wasn’t a mistake. It is a horrible reflection of institutional failure that this 6’8” snake was able to slither his way up the chain of command to lead the FBI and everyone associated with his advancement including John Ashcroft, Robert Mueller and Barack Obama should pay a price for letting it happen.
