Apr 15 2018 at 12:09 am We’re fucked, Its Deep State all the way down. Rob Horine Apr 15 2018 at 12:18 am Gutfeild said it best. The Don has dealt with the mafia. Just a few calls and some of these problems will get “solved”. KenH Apr 15 2018 at 12:30 am Arrogant cocksucker, aint he? How about sign an EO having all these RAT scumbags put to DEATH? That would cut out any handwavium lawyer bullshit in a hurry cmblake6 Apr 15 2018 at 1:23 am EO for treason? Okay. lurking Apr 15 2018 at 12:32 am They are trying to goad him into firing them. It’s a set-up. cmblake6 Apr 15 2018 at 1:24 am Knowing what I know of The Donald, he knows this. Deplorable B Woodman Apr 15 2018 at 12:53 am If the law does not protect me from thee, it equally does not protect thee from me. Yes, President Trump, get on that untraceable burner cell phone, make a few calls to your “special friends” in “low places”. I want to see (or not see) some of these Deep Stater bureaucrats (especially the high ranking FIBbies and O’Bozo era DOJ) go SO deep state that they………..just……….disappear. Like, cement overcoat disappear. Like, Jimmy Hoffa disappear. I want to see widows collecting on their hubbie’s life insurance, disappear. (too subtle?) cmblake6 Apr 15 2018 at 1:21 am Having read the statements above mine, I must admit to having the same thoughts. cmblake6 Apr 15 2018 at 1:22 am But, suicide works better. 😉 Fronk! Apr 15 2018 at 4:24 am If we could just get Hillary Clinton pissed off at them… cmblake6 Apr 16 2018 at 12:04 am Then it becomes “Arkancide”, and everybody knows there was help. NotYetInACamp Apr 15 2018 at 4:32 am When is the Special Prosecutor tasked to investigate Mueller’s actions, and one for Comey, and Hillary, and others actions going to be appointed? Or are those investigations plodding to completion in separated parts of the DOJ? Are there wings of buildings off the beaten paths somewhere full of attorneys and investigators dedicated to finding justice for the American people in these matters in existence somewhere? eon Apr 15 2018 at 6:06 am We have a rule of lawyers, not a rule of law. There is a difference and very few people understand that. Shakespeare’s “first thing, we kill all the lawyers” was meant to be funny, but it was only so because in his time, lawyers held sway over every aspect of a Briton’s life much as thy do over Americans’ lives now. Whoever had the deepest pockets could get whatever they wanted simply by taking their chosen victim to court. Today, the deepest pockets are pretty much all on the left, who believe that they deserve to be rich and powerful due to their innate superiority. The idea that rich, white lefties do what they do out of “guilt” is as nonsensical as the idea that schoolyard bullies suffer from low self-esteem. In both cases, the bully believes that he is better than everyone else and therefore inherently ‘fit to rule”. Couple this mindset with the power of a government position, and the above is what you get. There is no real cure for it under the present conditions. Therefore the conditions must be changed. Unfortunately, I increasingly see no evidence that those conditions will change, short of the total Triumph of the left, followed by purges that would warm Stalin’s heart, and then the total collapse of their Utopia as their Hunger Games dreams run headlong into the reality that a medieval agrarian economy for the peasants (those that they permit to survive, that is) cannot support a 24th Century Star Trekky lifestyle for the Enlightened Rulers in the Capitol. (See “technology base”.) As Scott Pruitt has shown at the EPA, they will never give up their power voluntarily. In fact, they will use the power they have to attempt to take extra-legal “measures” against anyone who challenges them. (Hence the death threats against him and his family.) In short, it is going to end in violence. either as they are resisted, or as they do it themselves simply because they feel entitled to do so. And frankly because they get their rocks off on it. You cannot reason with an Imperial ruling class. Especially when they think like Caligula. clear ether eon MasterDiver Apr 15 2018 at 12:56 pm Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” George Orwell 1984 Zar Belk! S Hooks Apr 15 2018 at 1:11 pm An occasional commenter here, Subotai Bahadur, has coined the useful term TWANLOC (Those Who Are No Longer Our Countrymen) to describe these types. Unfortunately, half, or more, of the American people are now precisely that. We are two different peoples occupying the same geography, and one side is murderously insane. You are correct, it will not end peacefully. Delilah T. Apr 15 2018 at 9:02 pm Caligula? The Praetorian Guard assassinated him. Are you suggesting, eon, dear, that the Left will assassinate their best candidate in the future? Like, shrillary might have lasted 18 months instead of the 2 years that were forecast before she imploded? These Leftreds are too smug for their own good, you know. Change is in the wind and none of them are really aware of it. Fronk! Apr 15 2018 at 4:36 am The laundry list of high crimes reads like a who’s who of malfeasance in office: Deep State corruption, bias, double standards, conspiracy, treason, graft, etc. etc. It’s all very frightening, but what scares me the most is the blatant shamelessness with which all this has been conducted. Shamelessness is driven by an expectation of impunity and why should there not be an expectation of impunity? Accountability in government has been a thing of the past for decades! Ben Franklin nailed it over 200 years ago: Government fears the people equals freedom. People fear their government equals tyranny. Tagg Apr 15 2018 at 6:26 am This sums up the current situation in a frighteningly accurate and concise manner. Nice work Chris! The left is winning. We need a comeback strategy bad! OldGoat36 Apr 15 2018 at 9:57 am Linking Higher Loyalty to Comey’s height was brilliant, and we know where his loyalty lies. In all these machinations we are seeing brought out to effect a coup, the only thing I keep coming up with is they want a Civil War to break out. We are already in a civil war of our society, with PC being used to alter reality of the perceptions of the young while silencing those who see it for what it is. The left is pushing focus on sex because they know it is distracting the youth and undercutting morals. Those in power don’t believe most of what spews out of their mouths, they use it to incite the gullible to create unrest. I felt that Obama’s damages to this country were vast, and believed we might not recover from all the damage he did. Seeing Herr Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Brennan, as well as all the lower minions who have been a part of a cabal of those looking to continue and grow Obama’s “legacy”, we have a lot to fear. Unless these are brought to trial and convicted of very serious crimes against the US and the people, we can kiss this country as we know it goodbye. I’m not sure there is any winning this dangerous game of thrones, the best we might hope for is stalling it for a while. Dana Apr 15 2018 at 10:43 am What, she’s wearing a bikini top in the pool? That can’t be right. JTC Apr 15 2018 at 12:47 pm As we discussed yesterday, this giant bitch positively seethes with hatred for Trump and by extension all who align with him. Donald hurt his feewings and Comey experienced a flashback to his tortured youth. If you haven’t perused some of the excerpts, you should. Right now nothing matters to him except taking Trump down and if there’s collateral damage to the nation and the world? So be it. Scary. What Trump quote did Haley give the UN council in reference to Syria… “locked and loaded”. Yeah, good advice and readiness for enemies foreign…and domestic. JTC Apr 15 2018 at 12:55 pm But of course today’s headlines blare TRUMP LASHES OUT AT COMEY AGAIN IN TWEETSTORM leading to some quotes from the actual tweets that are nothing but the truth…burying the lede as Muir brilliantly referenced the other day. They sure are aligned. JTC Apr 15 2018 at 6:58 pm This is personal… https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/with-comey-interview-it’s-all-out-war-against-trump/ar-AAvU8j7?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=spartanntp NotYetInACamp Apr 15 2018 at 5:10 pm I mean, here is some old news that should be followed up by a good honest prosecutor. It is, and has been, a target rich environment. There are, of course, the distractions caused by a supporter of the losing party (and many others) trying to save the last election for the opposition that will not relinquish power, nor accept the results of the last election. They battle forever using whatever means are necessary, and all taqiyya. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/985526771557814273.html eclark1849 Apr 15 2018 at 5:34 pm Funny thing. I’m seeing evidence of why there’s a 2nd amendment everywhere. The press doesn’t seem to believe there’s any threat, but Client Lawyer confidentiality is sacred among lawyers (Although apparently the ACLU can conveniently close their eyes when they want. Wonder what happens to the press if gubbmint decides the “Shield Law” is inconvenient? The left, especially the press, should always remember the poem at the Holocaust Memorial. Because they may come for the guns first, but the press is next. After all, wht good is a free Press if no one is free? cmblake6 Apr 16 2018 at 12:08 am Indeed.
