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!

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).

Will the CIA, FBI and NSA Finally Be Abolished?

Today I heard on Bloomberg Radio the rebroadcast of some of Chuck Toady’s psy-ops on Meet the Repressed. It can’t be just propaganda with Toady, this would have to be a psy-op with his viewers. But does it matter? He is only preaching to the choir. He’s discussing the “alternative facts” and fake news stuff, even though Toady himself and George Snuffleupagus, the New York Slimes and the Washington Pest have been the ones disseminating fake news and propaganda. Today’s episode of Meet the Propaganda was so bad as far as propaganda is concerned, that is why I’m calling it outright psy-ops.

Meanwhile…

U.S. attorney John Durham continues his investigating and uncovering of CIA and DOJ/FBI attempts to influence the 2016 election and reverse the results. Durham is going after former CIA chief John Brennan.

However, some people are saying that the “conspiracy” involves many more people than just Brennan, Comey, Strzok and Page, Rosenstein, McCabe, Yates, and those who have been mentioned many times now. Some are saying that this whole thing goes back to 2012 or earlier. And that this may be the biggest scandal and cover-up in American history. Supposedly, no one has been sent to prison (although someone now has been sent to prison, for an email hacking “to protect Director Mueller”) associated with all this, despite all the evidence and documentation that has been presented for years now. The article linked at the beginning of this paragraph mentions how so many people had access to the NSA database, and that AG Barr might be another broomer just like the Mueller team (although at the Mueller testimony, we got a glimpse into senile Robert Mueller’s cluelessness as to the facts of his own investigation).

Just as I don’t believe we will ever know the whole truth about the Jeffrey Epstein story, we will probably not see any of the real truth of the Warshington Establishment’s shenanigans regarding the 2016 (and 2020) elections. Most Americans still don’t know the truth about the Kennedy assassination and 9/11, so it is doubtful any of this will be made public or that actual criminals involved will see prison time. And that’s the way it is, as CIA asset Walter Cronkite would say.

Attempted Coups and Impeachments, and How the National Security State Harms the People

How ironic that the people who claim to believe in “democracy” but who have been trying to overturn a fair election are called “Democrats.”

And I agree in part with the commentators who are saying that Nancy Lugosi, Soviet Schiff and Nutty Nadler are “useful idiots” for the national security state’s attempted coup of the executive branch of the U.S. government. The bureaucratic security state apparatchiks in Warshington are so full of themselves with their delusions of grandeur who, despite their constant incompetence and buffoonery, can do no wrong.

But when Donald Trump comes along and says, “DRAIN THE SWAMP!” they go off the deep end. They are threatened. Their livelihoods are threatened. Their government paychecks, pensions and retirement goodies are threatened. We can’t have that.

So, the apparatchiks set people up and entrap them, or put non-suspects under surveillance (a.k.a. “spying”), such as Mike Flynn, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, and make things up such as with the “Steele dossier” with “golden showers,” etc., and then fraudulently abuse the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by lying to FISA judges to get warrants. And these people then coordinated with certain members of the “news” media to disseminate propaganda to influence the general public to falsely believe their fake news about Donald Trump cahooting with Russians to steal the 2016 election.

And this after the FBI falsely exonerates Hillary Clinton and overlooks the Clinton Foundation’s corruption and criminality. After a nearly 3-year Mueller investigation that turned up nothing, the “Democrats” with the help of a White House leaker-propagandist (a.k.a. “whistleblower,” which he is not) then went on to criminalize a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president in which Trump is trying to make sure the foreign aid recipient country is weeding out corruption. The CIA goon leaker-propagandist and his helpers in the national “intelligence” community made sure they could pick out a phone call in which a possible Trump 2020 election opponent is mentioned. That would be Joe Biden.

And so the House “Democrats” take the information, they have hearings, they have professional government parasites as witnesses, and then they write articles of impeachment and the “democrats” vote to impeach The Donald. But the Senate will not convict him, and it even appears that coward Pelosi may not even send the articles to the Senate.

So, do I have all this correct so far?

In my January article on the Mueller fiasco, regarding the collusions case that wasn’t, and the mainstream media’s propaganda to help the coup efforts, I wrote:

The Washington Post began the anti-honest journalism campaign coinciding with the Obama DOJ and FBI’s targeting of the Trump campaign in “Russia collusions,” with WaPo’s post-election article, “Russian propaganda effort to spread ‘fake news’ during the election.”

Even at that early time, plenty of objective people could see that this was already a witch hunt. As I wrote and documented last July, many in the news media colluded with the Clinton campaign to help Hillary while pushing the false “Trump-Russia” narrative.

in the Washington Post‘s mid-2016 article, “Russian government hackers penetrated DNC, stole opposition research on Trump,” the main source of that assertion is the DNC’s cyber firm, CrowdStrike, one of whose founders had ties to an anti-Russian think tank in Washington, and was proven to use faulty software. However, there is also an exploit that intelligence agencies have used to associate “Russian fingerprints” with hacks.

This July, 2016 New York Times article states, “…Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, argued on ABC’s This Week that the emails were leaked ‘by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump’ citing ‘experts’ but offering no other evidence.”

Former NSA analyst William Binney and CIA analyst Ray McGovern have shown even more holes in the Russia-“hacking” narrative, by demonstrating that the DNC emails were not hacked remotely but were accessed directly and leaked to WikiLeaks, probably by a DNC insider. Former British ambassador Craig Murray had confirmed this.

Then there was Hillary Clinton’s claim that “17 intelligence agencies” concluded that Russians meddled in the 2016 election. But it was really 4, not 17. At least, that is what former director of national intelligence James Clapper stated in testimony.

Claims of “Russia hacking U.S. election systems” were continuously debunked. And investigative journalist Gareth Porter has this further analysis.

Former FBI director James Comey and former NSA director Mike Rogers both testified that they were not aware of any evidence to show the 2016 election was hacked.

In early 2017, when WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was negotiating with U.S. government officials for “limited immunity” in exchange for Assange’s refraining from releasing further CIA-related documents, such talks were squashed by then-FBI director James Comey and Sen. Mark Warner, because Assange was also going to provide evidence which ruled out Russia as the source of the DNC leaks, according to Ray McGovern of Consortium News and John Solomon of The Hill.

And regarding the Russians who actually were indicted by the Mueller team, I wrote:

in July 2018 Mueller indicted 12 more Russian agents, supposedly of Russia’s intelligence agency the GRU, this time to do with “hacking” the DNC and the Clinton campaign computers, once again with no evidence produced, as Moon of Alabama and Joe Lauria explained.

And here is more that I wrote in that article to explain the FBI’s criminal enterprise of illegal surveillance and election meddling:

George Neumayr of The American Spectator wrote about the early John Brennan CIA-British GCHQ spy ring, spying on Trump associates especially Mike Flynn in 2014 and ’15, well before Trump announced his Presidential run. The Hill’s John Solomon expands on the London connection to Russia-gate.

According to Fox News, Rudy Giuliani referred to Brennan as the “quarterback” who passed the unverified Steele dossier on to Sen. Harry Reid. And Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel called Brennan the “ringmaster” of the whole thing.

To spy on the Trump campaign in 2016, the Obama FBI and DOJ relied on unverified information, mainly from the notorious “Steele dossier,” to get judges to sign on to the FISA spying applications, according to Andrew McCarthy.

The FBI relied heavily on the Steele dossier to present it as “evidence” against Trump associates to obtain the FISA warrants, even though they knew that Christopher Steele, hired by Fusion GPS, had lied to them and was not credible, according to Byron York of the Washington Examiner. (i.e. the FBI lied to the FISA court judges, which is not a surprise, given the FBI’s own shady history.) Zero Hedge provides informative specifics on the FISA warrant applications.

Despite knowing that the Steele dossier was, in James Comey’s words, “salacious and unverified,” Robert Mueller continued to rely on the dossier anyway, according to Real Clear Investigations.

The Daily Caller reported that a CIA and FBI informant named Stefan Halper had infiltrated the Trump campaign to spy on Carter Page and George Papadopoulos. And then it was revealed by Naxios that Halper had gotten Trump administration economic advisor Peter Navarro to recommend Halper for a top position in the administration.

There was a second spy, supposedly on behalf of the Obama administration, who had approached Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo and campaign co-chairman Sam Clovis. Caputo implicated the Obama director of national intelligence James Clapper, according to Zero Hedge.

Incidentally, Glenn Greenwald reported that Stefan Halper had previously been a Jimmy Carter administration spy in the Reagan 1980 campaign. (Can you make this stuff up?)

The FBI has admitted it used multiple spies to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

Please click on all the links and read those articles. You’ll see much of it is completely foreign to what you’ve been used to hearing from the mainstream “news” media these past 3 years now. And no, you can’t make this stuff up. The “news” media have not only been suppressing much of this information, but they have also been making up fake news and promoting their propaganda as … “news.”

And now we have all the Ukraine and Joe/Hunter Biden stuff. Will mainstream media suppress all this, too? I just heard Rudy Giuliani on with Glenn Beck this morning, and Giuliani is saying that he has obtained documents on the corruption in Ukraine that involved Joe/Hunter Biden. Should we believe Rudy Giuliani? After all, he is a loathsome, ghastly and corrupt politician.

By the way, John Solomon has a recent article on the Latvian government saying it flagged “suspicious” Hunter Biden payments in 2016.

But on the impeachment Senate trial that might not happen, I don’t think that Senators Lindsey Graham, Shovel-Face McConnell and Charles Grassfed want the crimes of the FBI and CIA to be exposed, so they probably will shut it down before it begins.

And regarding the FBI, I have written in the past:

All you have to do is read these recent articles by James Bovard on the history of FBI shenanigans.

USA Today: Nunes memo released: FBI objections lacked credibility given bureau’s shady past

What about James Comey, John Brennan, James Claptrapper, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, Sally Yates, and many corrupt others? (Well, I am not holding my breath. But we can hope for a miracle, can’t we?)

Don’t Trust CNN, CBS, New York Times, et al. for Truthful Reporting, Only Propaganda

One thing we have gotten from the DOJ inspector general report on the FBI’s politically motivated “mistakes” and “incompetence” with the FISA applications for warrants to spy on Carter Page using the Steele dossier as the “intel,” is how either ignorant and incompetent or just dishonest and corrupt the “news” media have been these past 2 or 3 years now in their defending the national security state. And it’s not the “deep state,” because it’s out in the open.

And now we have an impeachment of Trump based on a phone call. As soon as Trump won the election in 2016, Democrats were immediately calling for him to be impeached. They’ll take anything as an excuse to impeach him. And the “news” media have been carrying the establishment apparatchiks’ water.

As I wrote here, the “news” media have been propagandizing on behalf of Hillary Clinton and Democrats and lying or lying by omission on behalf of smearing or framing The Donald. And I’m not a Trump supporter as you already know, but I think the truth is important.

The late investigative journalist Robert Parry wrote, “The hatred of Trump and Putin was so intense that old-fashioned rules of journalism and fairness were brushed aside…Hatred of Trump had become like some invasion of the body snatchers –or perhaps many of my journalistic colleagues had never believed in the principles of journalism that I had embraced throughout my adult life.”

But, as Glenn Greenwald noted, “The political media is designed to be adversarial because it is supposed to serve as a scrutinizing check on the claims of those in power, not serve as worshipful, propagandistic amplifiers of those claims.” In that article Greenwald cites many instances in which our modern “news journalists” enmesh and schmooze themselves with government power-grabbers, becoming useful idiots for the national security state.

Americans need to divorce CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek and Time, and all the other propaganda forces who shill for the State.

If you want more truthful news and analysis on the FBI, the FISA revelations, and the national security state and media’s campaign of propaganda and framing against Trump, then the following recent articles would be better for that.
