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!)

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).
