Another Scheme to Oust Trump: Roger Stone Exaggerated Prison Sentence

I’m not a big fan of Roger Stone, but once again, we see that a Trump flunky is being used to manipulate and set up Donald Trump toward another investigation fiasco or impeachment farce. The prosecutors who have railroaded Stone on process crimes, just like with the other Trump flunkies, are recommending that Stone be given 7 to 9 years in prison. For lying to Congress.

But they won’t charge others for lying to Congress, such as James Comey, John Brennan or James Clapper, and obviously for political reasons. Those were on the Hillary-Obama team! DC swamp creatures get away with murder, as well as “process” crimes!

So, the requested sentence for Stone of 7-9 years in prison is deliberately so extreme, they must be doing it as a means to elicit a reaction from Trump, which they have gotten, and using the extreme sentence as a way to get the attorney general to want to reduce the sentence, which is how William Barr has reacted. (And the ultra-biased jury foreman was probably helpful to them as well, no?)

And I believe it’s all planned and on purpose. WHY would 4 prosecutors react so strongly to Barr’s disagreeing with their request of 7 to 9 years that those prosecutors would actually resign? Just because one of their victims might get a reduced sentence? The prosecutors are THAT serious with process crimes? Doh!

So it sounds like a pre-planned scheme, and just part 3 of the many-parts plan of the Warshington Swamp and Democrats to try to get rid of Trump, the first part being the whole Russia-collusions fiasco, and the second part being the impeachment farce. Those two parts of the plan didn’t work, obviously. So now they’re trying to get Trump with the Roger Stone case.

And already Nancy Lugosi and others have called on Trump and the DOJ to be investigated for wanting to see Stone’s sentence of 7-9 years reduced. And people are talking about bringing another case of impeachment against Trump based on this now (even though their guy Obama did the same thing, many times!). The impeachment shenanigans will obviously continue for the next 5 years.

And this means that if a candidate is elected President that the other party doesn’t like, rather than wait until the next election they will use the impeachment process to try to get rid of him. As I wrote recently, they are the Undemocratic Party.

But they don’t care about impeaching someone for the right reasons, such as the drone strikes that kill mainly innocent civilians that their buddy Obama continued and escalated after Bush, and that Trump has escalated even more, killing even more civilians overseas. And Trump’s assassinations without due process. All war crimes, or … “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The reason that “Democrats” won’t go after Trump for those actual crimes is because their guy Obama did the same thing, and because they agree with due process-free drone strikes and assassinations!

Those DOJ prosecutors who resigned and the FBI “dirty cops” and the Undemocrats in CONgress who have been trying to take down Trump with made-up “crimes” that weren’t crimes or with taking things out of context, are doing so because they just HATE Trump! And that’s IT!

Amy Klobuchar: Worst of the Worst?

Robert Wenzel has this summary of Amy Klobuchar’s views and legislation she supports. She’s big on U.S. government interventionism around the world, loves the UN and NATO, supports NSA collection of private data without reasonable suspicion and votes in favor of FISA warrantless surveillance (i.e.. contempt for the 4th Amendment – Oh, that old thing?), wants the government to have authority over Facebook, Google and Amazon and other tech companies (anti-First Amendment, fascist), supports trade tariffs (against free trade and free markets), says regime change ops are on the table especially Venezuela, supports eco-fascism in climate change legislation and “Green New Deal” (i.e. crony Green Wheeling and Dealing). Thus, she combines the worst of warmongering, foreign interventionism, fascist anti-civil liberties and government spying on innocent people, with socialist tax-thefts in the name of irrational fanatical crusades. Very much like Hillary, in other words.

Who Would Want to Sabotage the 2020 U.S. Elections?

Certainly not Israel. Whitney Webb has a very lengthy article on the U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. government foreign policy apparatchiks giving dire warnings about how vulnerable this year’s elections are with no evidence, with such warnings unthinkingly parroted by the mainstream news media. However, at the same time Israel has a lot of connections to hacking and vulnerabilities, and for some reason intelligence (sic) hooligans seem to want to cause chaos in our elections in the name of further building up totalitarian government impositions.

Coronavirus Update.

Paul Craig Roberts has an important coronavirus update. “Conspiracy theory”? Well, a lot of what we have been hearing from the government’s media lapdogs just doesn’t add up.

(By the way, the name reminds me of “Smith-Corona,” and it reminded me of my old Smith-Corona typewriter, which I finally got rid of in 2005 after having it for about 25 years. I’m sure some younger readers are asking, “What’s a ‘typewriter’?”) Anyway, I heard one of the local conservative talk radio personalities engaging in fear-mongering with this coronavirus scare, as he calls for more fascism and police state than we already have. And it’s based on fear and irrationality. Oh, well.

The Impeachment “Whistleblower” Is Really Just a “Propagandist”

U.S. Chief Bureaucrat John Roberts has been censoring Sen. Rand Paul’s questions for House managers in the Senate impeachment trial of The Donald. For questioning, the senators submit written questions to the Chief Bureaucrat who presides over the trial. Anyway, given what a swamp creature Roberts is, and what a turncoat Roberts was in his changing his vote toward approval of ObamaCare, that he would censor questions in favor of sweeping government criminality under the rug is no big surprise.

So Paul tweeted his Roberts-censored question thus: “Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”

Paul further clarified in the tweets: “My question is not about a “whistleblower” as I have no independent information on his identity. My question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and House staff and how they are reported to have conspired before impeachment proceedings had even begun.

Some people are saying that outing a whistleblower could compromise his job security or safety. But the alleged “whislteblower” in this case who started this whole fiasco later last year is not a whistleblower. He did not expose “waste, fraud or abuse” in his working behind the scenes with Adam Schiff, the day after the controversial Trump-Ukraine phone call, to get this impeachment going. In fact, the alleged “whistleblower” began in his crusade against Trump soon after Trump was inaugurated.

According to WikiSpooks, Eric Ciaramella was a CIA apparatchik who became a White House staffer thanks to former Trump National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, and had been a “Susan Rice protégé.” (Hmm, that sounds good. I sure hope he had no involvement in Rice’s unmasking the names of Trump flunkies who were under illegal surveillance! Doh!) More info from Heavy.com.

The “whistleblower” who reported second-hand or third-hand hearsay information regarding that Trump-Ukraine phone call to get this impeachment fiasco going, was a Trump-hater, one of many. But I’m sure you can take any phone conversation and blow any statement out of proportion, such as in the specific phone call the bureaucrats chose to blow out of proportion for impeachment.

And I don’t think that Trump knew in July of 2019 that Joe Biden would be his Democrat opponent a year later in 2020. So it seems to me that to suggest that Trump was thinking of Biden in that phone call as his “political rival” has been an invalid argument, one that has been obediently repeated by the lapdogs of the mainstream media. Not that I’m particularly defending Trump, mind you. He is just another criminal bureaucrat, in my view.

So the “whislteblower” wasn’t really exposing “fraud, waste, or abuse” or incompetence or criminality in government, in the same way that Bradley Manning, now known as Chelsea Manning, did in 2010, or Edward Snowden, or Thomas Drake or John Kiriakou have done.

No, the “whistleblower” was taking second hand and hearsay information as propaganda and using it in cahoots with swamp creatures in Congress to impeach a President they just don’t like. So, really the “whistleblower” isn’t actually a whistleblower, or even just a “leaker,” but a propagandist.

And at the beginning of the House impeachment inquiry even further propaganda oozed from Adam Schiff in his reading a made-up version of the transcript of the Trump-Ukraine phone call, making Trump sound like a gangster. Now THAT’s propaganda! Quite different from the actual transcript of the phone call. (So, did the CIA flunky “whistleblower” cahoot with Schiff in the changing of that transcript? Just askin’.)

And that is what swamp creatures such as those in the CIA are good at, propaganda and psy-ops. The swamp propagandists of the CIA and the rest of the national security state in Warshington including the FBI, NSA, the Pentacon, and DOJ didn’t like Trump’s “drain the swamp” rhetoric during the campaign, and they have been obsessed with getting him out of there. Literally obsessed. I have never seen this kind of pathological obsession with one single political figure on the part of national security apparatchiks, politicians and their news media government groupies.

Now, I can see why a CIA apparatchik and his fellow national security swampers don’t want to impeach Trump for his war crimes of authorizing drone strikes that kill mainly innocent civilians overseas, or for his ordering assassinations of foreigners without due process. Because as we know the goons and spooks of the national security apparatus approve of all those immoral interventions and criminal acts. But what is wrong with Democrats (who used to be known as “liberals”), when they couldn’t care less about Trump’s actual crimes, and instead make stuff up, such as this whole impeachment farce and Russiagate, as a way to try to get rid of him?

So, one good solution to all this, besides getting rid of Trump (and Pence et al.), is just abolishing the CIA, FBI, NSA, as well as the DHS, TSA, ICE and all the other totalitarian agencies in Warshington, and ending all tax-funded foreign aid, and closing down all those foreign U.S. military bases overseas and bringing all the U.S. military back to the U.S. (and even better, putting them in the private sector where they can actually be productive).
