“The Obama/New York Times Plot to Overthrow Trump”

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss “The Obama/New York Times Plot to Overthrow Trump”:

More:

David Stockman comments on the New Gray Lady, the New York Times’ most recent fictional essay on FBI viewing Donald Trump as a “national security threat.”

George Parry says the FBI prostituted itself.

And Tom Knapp says, Now more than ever, it’s clear the FBI must go.

(And also must go: the CIA, the NSA, DHS, ICE, TSA, and all the other unconstitutional three-letter word agencies in Washington.)

And speaking of the FBI and TSA, Becky Akers writes about the TSA molesters and the Stockholm Syndrome-suffering serfs who support them.

William Barr, Robert Mueller, and the New York Slimes

I heard some excerpts of today’s confirmation hearings of Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, William Barr, who said that the Mueller inquisition is NOT a “witch hunt” (after all he knows about it). Jeepers.

As I wrote already, Barr is an authoritarian statist, a “former” CIA flunky and thus a national security state apparatchik, as well as a vicious drug warrior, against prison reform, and is anti-immigration like Trump, i.e. extremely authoritarian.

Barr is a long-time friend of “special” counsel Robert Mueller, and I don’t see him actively wanting to expose the FBI and DOJ’s corruption and criminality in their falsely exonerating Hillary Clinton and their abusing FISA spying authority to go after Trump. He will be a cover-upper. Barr’s daughter, by the way, is a senior DOJ official, for drug policy. And if he recuses himself from the Mueller-Russia fishing expedition it would be just like Jeff Sessions, and, what, they’ll continue with the corrupt, conflicted Rod Rosenstein overseeing the investigation?

Moon of Alabama has this essay on how Obama enabled the FBI to spy on Trump. And Moon also addresses the recent New York Slimes propaganda piece on the FBI investigating Trump as a Putin asset. The Slimes makes stuff up and that piece is an example. Glenn Greenwald also spends time on the Slimes piece, and looks back to the J. Edgar Hoover FBI investigating high government officials as “national security threats.”

That the major news media outlets are not only taking people’s quotes out of context to make them look bad, or deliberately slanting an article by omitting key facts as a means of propagandizing against a certain public figure or issue is bad enough. But just making things up like a gossip rag is very bad. In fact, when these major news outlets are propagandizing like the Pravda, I think we really are in trouble. Some pundits have referred to that as “dangerous,” and it is.

So anyway, my conclusion is that with a Barr attorney general we will see a whitewashing of the DOJ and FBI criminality and corruption. The vast majority of Americans will continue to not be informed of the truth. Sad.

The Incredible Mueller-Russia Fiasco

Here is my latest article on Activist Post, The Incredible Mueller-Russia Fiasco

January 5, 2019

At the time of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the mainstream media had already launched their propaganda campaign against “fake news,” i.e. real investigative reporting from alternative news sources not government propaganda-distribution (i.e. mainstream media).

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.

Well, it appears that the Obama DOJ, FBI and CIA also attempted to help Clinton win the 2016 election, and at the same time trying to oust Trump.

This is an extremely elaborate case involving a combination of criminal abuse of governmental powers and propaganda. Chances are, most people who rely on mainstream news media for information probably do not know any or much of what follows here. (Please read linked articles for further information.)

To begin, 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.

The Obama FBI, DOJ and CIA’s attempt to set up Trump and his campaign associates in an elaborate frame-up

In mid-2016, Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and others met in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer, supposedly because the Russian lawyer had some campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. The meeting may have been a set-up.

Also the Russian lawyer had been given a special visa under “extraordinary circumstances” by attorney general Loretta Lynch, who had Manafort’s phone tapped during that meeting. So FBI director James Comey lied to Congress when denying Trump’s claim that Trump Tower was “wiretapped.”

In early January 2017 Obama issued an order to allow intelligence agencies to share surveillance data on Americans.

And then it turns out that Obama national security advisor Susan Rice requested the “unmasking” of names of people caught up in the illegal surveillance of Trump campaign and transition associates, and had the names given to the heads of various national security agencies, including the director of national intelligence James Clapper, the Department of Defense and the CIA.

And it wasn’t just the names of people but Rice allegedly ordered spreadsheets of the persons surveilled and their legal phone calls as well, and, according to the Daily Caller, “many hands had to be involved throughout the Obama administration to launch such a political spying program.”

Apparently Bloomberg and the New York Times were sitting on the Susan Rice “unmasking” story in order to protect the Obama administration from embarrassment.

Clapper and acting attorney general Sally Yates also admitted to reviewing Trump campaign people’s communications, according to Sharyl Attkisson, who also quotes from a Stratfor internal email leaked to WikiLeaks stating that “[John] Brennan [then an Obama Homeland Security adviser] is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”

And we know that John Brennan’s CIA spied on the U.S. Senate as well. Then it turns out that Brennan and Obama’s director of national intelligence James Clapper had also been spying on U.S. intelligence workers to go after legitimate whistleblowers.

Mueller’s irrelevant indictments

Mueller indicted Paul Manafort with charges going back to the mid-2000s, totally unrelated to the Russia-2016 election investigation, for which Manafort had attempted to sue Mueller for going beyond his assignment as “special counsel.”

The grand jury handing down the indictments were apparently “Trump haters.” Wrote Richard Johnson of Page Six: “‘The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,’ my source said. ‘Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]’.”

And then in February 2018 Mueller handed down indictments to “13 Russians and three companies,” according to the New York Times, charging them with “conspiracy to defraud the United States” and “conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.”

However, Moon of Alabama points out that the operation was really just a click-bait marketing scheme to make money, and that’s basically it.

So the case that Russia changed any U.S. 2016 election results via social media is shaky at best.

Further, to Mueller’s surprise one of the indicted Russians unexpectedly appeared in court to fight the charges.

But later, 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.

Trump campaign associate and briefly national security advisor Mike Flynn was entrapped. That entrapment began just days after the Trump inauguration. The FBI even set him up by telling Flynn that he wouldn’t need a lawyer in his interview with the FBI.

One probable reason why Flynn insisted on pleading guilty to lying to FBI even though investigators didn’t think he had lied was the possibility that Mueller was going after Flynn’s son.

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.

FBI agents “insurance policy”

Mid-2016 texts between a top FBI counter-intelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page came to light, in which they discussed an “insurance policy” should Donald Trump win the presidency.

Strzok was investigating the Hillary email scandal and was also the one who interviewed Trump campaign aide and future national security advisor Mike Flynn.

Apparently, President Barack Obama was not “our of the loop,” during all these shenanigans, according to the New York Post. Sad.

Andrew McCarthy of National Review discussed the Peter Strzok/Lisa Page emails and texts and how the Trump-Russia investigation really began while Obama was still President.

In September, 2018 Rep. Mark Meadows revealed April 2017 texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggesting forming a “media leak strategy” with the DOJ, and subsequent texts indicate articles in the Press that were damaging to Carter Page apparently from the leaked information, according to Daily Caller.

And according to John Solomon of The Hill, the FBI lawyer Lisa Page had apparently testified before a closed-door congressional committee that Strzok had texted her that “there’s no big there there,” regarding any possible evidence against Trump associates and Russia collusions. But they continued with investigations anyway with the hope for impeachment, for political reasons.

The real “Russian collusions”

But it was Hillary Clinton who was inviting Vladimir Putin to “Pay for Play” events at the Clinton Foundation. Following Hillary’s Uranium One deal while she was at the State Department, the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in donations from Uranium One shareholders. The FBI threatened an informant to keep quiet about linking the Foundation to a Russian “bribery, extortion and money laundering case.” (More.)

And according to forensic investigators, the Clinton Foundation allegedly operated as a “foreign agent,” and not as a “501c3 charitable foundation.” The whistleblower investigators had already given the IRS and FBI such information in 2017.

But wait. It turns out that the FBI had raided the home of a different Clinton Foundation whistleblower because he had given documents over to the DOJ inspector general and House and Senate intelligence committee members, documents showing potential criminal activity at the Foundation. The FBI spent 6 hours ransacking the whistleblower’s home, despite the individual’s protected status under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act.

On the Hillary Clinton email investigation, the FBI turned down FOIA requests for information based on “lack of public interest.” According to Judicial Watch, the State Department worked with Hillary to cover up the email logs and schedules.

Further, then-FBI director James Comey was already working on a Hillary exoneration statement even before the FBI interviewed Clinton. And then FBI edited the exoneration to change the words “gross negligence” to “extremely careless,” to turn what would have been a criminal indictment into merely a slap on the wrist.

To get an idea as to how objective James Comey is regarding Hillary Clinton, Breitbart has this article on the cozy relationship between Comey and the Clinton Foundation, the millions of dollars Comey received from Lockheed Martin the same year Lockheed donated to the Clinton Foundation, Lockheed’s “17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department” in 2010, Comey’s involvement with London HSBC Holdings, DLA Piper, and Comey’s brother, Peter Comey.

Back to FBI-DOJ bias and collusions

Former FBI assistant director James Kallstrom said that there was a plot of “high-ranking” people in the intelligence community, “not just the FBI,” to aid Hillary Clinton’s avoiding being indicted and to damage Donald Trump, according to Zero Hedge. Kallstrom especially accused Obama CIA director John Brennan of direct involvement as well as leaking to the media.

Deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe canceled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee when news surfaced that the “wife of Senior DOJ official Bruce Ohr worked for Fusion GPS,” according to Zero Hedge. Fusion GPS was the firm hired by the DNC to do opposition research on Donald Trump. Christopher Steele (of the notorious “Steele dossier”) was hired by Fusion GPS.

McCabe, who had been criticized by the DOJ inspector general, had also testified that James Comey directed the FBI to “ambush” Mike Flynn.

The inspector general also confirmed the FBI Clinton email investigators’ extreme anti-Trump bias, their unjustified exoneration of Hillary Clinton, and that Barack Obama lied about the Hillary private email server and that James Comey knew that Obama had lied about it.

Because then-attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein took charge of it. That was despite Rosenstein’s egregious conflicts of interest in the matter: Rosenstein was one of the DOJ officials who signed a FISA warrant that was based on the unverified Steele dossier, and Rosenstein was friends of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

In May of 2017 Trump had fired FBI director James Comey, who then leaked his memos (regarding Trump’s asking him to end the investigation of Mike Flynn) to the New York Times, via Comey’s law professor friend. Trump had been advised by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein to fire Comey. After Trump fired Comey, Trump was then being investigated for obstruction of justice apparently by the one who advised him to fire Comey, Rod Rosenstein. Huh.

It turns out that Rosenstein had expressed wanting to secretly record conversations with Trump and also had mentioned possibly making use of the 25th Amendment to get rid of Trump.

For all the above reasons, Donald Trump really ought to order the DOJ to declassify and unredact documents, not just the FBI’s FISA applications but also important emails among Comey, FBI investigators and DOJ lawyers, which will refute the original and much repeated allegations of “Trump-Russia collusions.”

Contrary to the London-to-Langley claims of possibly revealing “sources and methods” and compromising “national security,” the redactions and declassification will merely embarrass the spooks by exposing their shenanigans and criminality.

So there were collusions between DNC lawyers and the FBI to use made-up information in a dossier to illegally obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, and the Mueller kangaroo inquisition really began as a political insurance plan.

Conclusion

After the Flynn and Manafort indictments that weren’t related to the 2016 election and “Russia collusions,” in desperation the Mueller people and the FBI raided the offices of then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Mueller has gotten Cohen in a plea deal and probably an agreement by Cohen to lie about Trump based on what the Mueller people told Cohen to say, and not the truth, in my view.

Out of desperation, the Mueller team have also attempted to coerce investigative reporter Jerome Corsi to deliberately lie in return for a plea deal, which he will not do, and instead Corsi is suing Mueller.

And Mueller has now been accused of destruction of evidence. No surprise there. It’s all a part of Mueller’s ongoing crime spree, I suppose.

Regarding the biased media, Chuck Todd interviewed James Clapper on March 5, 2017, asking Clapper if any evidence exists to prove any collusion between Trump and Russians.

Clapper told Chuck Todd: “We did not include any evidence in our report, and I say, ‘our,’ that’s N.S.A., F.B.I. and C.I.A., with my office, the Director of National Intelligence, that had anything, that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians. There was no evidence of that included in our report.”

And Todd asked if the evidence actually exists, and Clapper answered, “Not to my knowledge,” and “we had no evidence of such collusion.”

Senators such as Chris Coons and Dianne Feinstein have also spoken of lack of evidence.

Do you mean that for nearly two years since then Chuck Todd (and others in the media) continued with “Trump-Russia collusions,” despite knowing that there was no evidence to support such a narrative?

And then there is Felix Sater, a.k.a. “Individual 2,” who, as an FBI informant since 1998, had infiltrated the Trump organization as early as 2003. That sure tells us something.

A Recent Update to the Justina Pelletier Case

I had written quite a lot about Justina Pelletier since my initial 2014 post about her situation. That’s the teenager (now 20) who was the victim of “medical kidnapping,” in which the new hospital changed her diagnosis from mitochondrial disease to a psychological disorder, accusing her of merely having psychosomatic reactions despite the actual medical tests which verified her medical diagnosis. The hospital, Boston Children’s, removed her from the treatment she was getting and then placed her in a facility for troubled teens despite the fact that she was not “troubled,” and her physical condition deteriorated to the point of her having to be in a wheelchair. They had also brought in CPS and removed custody from her parents and transferred custody over to the State. Based on what I have learned throughout all that time, it appears that the hospital kidnapped Justina, most probably for the purpose of using her as a guinea pig for research against her will and without her or the parents’ consent. When the hospital does that to kids, the kids are considered a “ward of the State,” and therefore the Doctors Mengele can do what they want with them.

The Pelletier family initiated a lawsuit against the hospital and the specific “doctors” involved in the kidnapping, false imprisonment and torture.

Most recently, there is an article on The Daily Wire with an exclusive interview of Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier. Pelletier says he thinks the lawsuit will come to trial around January of 2020. (Does it have to take 6 or 7 years after the crimes were allegedly committed by “doctors” for a trial to take place?)

Check out the website MedicalKidnap.com, and you’ll see that these kinds of situations are going on all across the USSA. (They do it to elderly people too, folks.) Just wait until the government takes over your health and medical matters completely. With ObamaCare, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” and so on. In the People’s Republic of USSA, “child welfare” means that children exist to serve the control-freakish desires of the apparatchiks of the State and its Soviet psychiatric wing.

Tell Them “The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution Protects My Right to Remain Silent”

And it protects your right to not answer their questions, especially without your attorney present. And if you are a political activist or a high-profile public figure like Donald Trump you should already have an attorney in place that you can call in such cases of harassment by federal or local law enforcement. And they do tend to go after political activists and high profile people. And they go after people for political reasons who are on “the other side of the aisle,” or those who are advocates of freedom and who are “anti-government” in one way or another.

Victor Ward has this important advice for Donald Trump in his possibly being interviewed by FBI or the Mueller squad. This advice applies to anyone and everyone who might be the target of the feds or police. Here are some excerpts:

Never, never, never talk to the Police/FBI or anyone in the District Attorney’s/DOJ’s office.

These guys are not your friends.

They do not care about you.

Do not let them come to your office. Do not let them in your home. Do not give them anything.

The only thing that you should say is: “I want an attorney. I want all questioning to stop until I get my attorney. Thank you.”

Sure, they will try to persuade you and tell you that the process could be so much faster if you would just answer a few questions without your Attorney present.

They will tell you that you don’t need an Attorney because you don’t have anything to hide.

They will tell you that you are not under any investigation or indictment and that you don’t have anything to worry about.

These are all lies. If they cannot get you for X, they will try and get you for Y, and then use your conviction for Y to help get something else from you.

Ward makes reference to Michael Cohen and Jerome Corsi, and suggests what they did wrong. Although if I remember correctly, the feds raided Michael Cohen’s office, and it probably wasn’t because they initially suspected Cohen of criminal activity, but probably because the feds were after Trump and were on a fishing expedition to try to find dirt on The Donald.

This whole case of the Mueller kangaroo investigation really tells us who the real criminals are, don’t you think?

The Mueller Kangaroo Investigation Continues

I heard former assistant U.S. attorney for southern district of New York Andrew McCarthy of National Review on with Glenn Beck this morning, and McCarthy said that the Mueller team seems to be preparing to indict Donald Trump, based on McCarthy’s experience in and knowledge of these kinds of things. What will they charge Trump with? Who knows, probably some made-up thing.

In a somewhat snarky, big picture kind of column at The Hill, Sharyl Attkisson says that Mueller’s findings don’t matter. You’re either in the “Trump colluded with Russia” camp, or the “Deep State conspired to frame Trump” camp. The evidence points to the latter, while the former has no evidence whatsoever. (Most people don’t know that, because they get their news mainly from the government stenographers of the mainstream media.)

Fox News columnist Victoria Toensing notes that when interviewed by FBI (as directed by acting attorney general Sally Yates),Trump former national security advisor Mike Flynn misremembered a conversation he had weeks earlier that the FBI didn’t even have to ask him about because they had recordings of the conversation. Entrapment much, FBI? And apparently Yates had violated some kind of national security laws there.

Meanwhile, in perhaps the most important of all these columns today, former state department official Peter van Buren says the whole Mueller investigation began as an investigation looking for a crime from the very beginning, a crime that had not even been committed.

You can believe what you want about all this. But the whole thing is made up. Just in the past day I heard John Batchelor again on these issues, and he brought up once again the long time FBI informant Felix Sater, who as an FBI informant had infiltrated the Trump organization as early as 2003. Could  the FBI and other gubmint apparatchiks been after Trump for decades now? It would not surprise me. I don’t think that lifelong government parasites like entrepreneurs and capitalists very much.

Some Thought-Provoking Commentary

Wendy McElroy says the “Violence Against Women Act” is an insult to fairness, because the statistics of violence show that men are also victims of violence, and she cites a statistic that “‘55.5 percent’ of women and ‘43.2 percent’ of men ‘have experienced physical violence by an intimate partner’.”

Meanwhile, Jason Brennan with a controversial article discussing the use of violence in self-defense against agents of the State, i.e. government police.

Tom Mullen has the best argument against minimum wage laws: you don’t own other people.

Donald Trump’s Nominee for Attorney General, William Barr

After all his criticisms of the “deep state,” the Mueller Russia-collusions “witch hunt” and rhetorically raking the Establishment over the coals, Donald Trump has nominated former Bush41 AG and CIA flunky the authoritarian statist William Barr to be the next attorney general. The reason Trump picked Barr is because Trump is impressed with someone with the credentials Barr has. (Hmm, Robert Mueller has good credentials, too. And Dick Cheney. And … James Comey, and…Hillary….Clinton…)

According to Wikipedia, Barr was with the CIA for four years. That in and of itself should disqualify him! During the George H.W. Bush administration, as an assistant AG Barr advised that the U.S. feds could invade another country to apprehend a suspect for extradition, such as invading Panama to grab Manuel Noriega, whose drug trafficking was excused by U.S. feds in exchange for his cooperation for the CIA in the CIA’s Latin America coups and regime change ops.

Really disgusting stuff, in other words. Further, as attorney general under Bush Sr., Barr advised that Bush pardon former Defense (sic) Secretary Caspar Weinberger, because a possible Weinberger trial involving the Iran-Contra scandal might have implicated Bush himself. (Bush has done worse, believe me.)

Barr is also anti-immigration, just like Donald Trump and former AG Jeff Sessions. If you’re going to be anti-immigration like these socialist clowns, should you really be in America? (How about these schmucks instead go to other countries that don’t have a Declaration of Independence or a Bill of Rights? Hmmm?)

Unsurprisingly, Barr is a drug fascist. Barr’s daughter Mary Daly is a DOJ official, in charge of drug policy, apparently. She and her father Bill Barr are supporters of the war on drugs. For them it is a criminal matter. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the gubmint are criminals, according to these fascists. (But don’t touch the drug warriors’ precious booze, right? Right.)

According to WaPo, Barr sent a letter to U.S. Senators telling them not to reform the sentencing system, writing, “Our system of justice is not broken. Mandatory minimums and proactive law enforcement measures have caused a dramatic reduction in crime over the past 25 years, an achievement we cannot afford to give back.”

Clueless.

Proactive law enforcement measures”? So pre-crime? Thus, not only does Barr believe that the government has the authority to prohibit this or that by law, like drugs, but he doesn’t believe in presumption of innocence and due process.

Presumption of innocence is: leave people alone who are peaceful and not suspected of harming others or violating the persons or property of others, and so on. But, Barr doesn’t get that.

And then I saw this. Law professor Jonathan Turley wrote that Barr is “one of the most brilliant lawyers I have known” and that Barr is the “perfect choice” for attorney general. More cluelessness, this. I think a lot of U.S. senators will obediently follow this line of thinking, and they will probably unanimously vote to confirm Barr as attorney general. I’m sure even Rand Paul will vote for him. No surprise there.

If confirmed, given his “law-and-order” authoritarianism the statist William Barr will probably rubber-stamp the police state: the drug war, asset forfeiture, all the unconstitutional post-9/11 policies including NDAA and indefinite detention, warrantless searches, warrantless wiretapping and warrantless spying, and more.

Even though Barr has expressed support for investigating Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, I still don’t believe that Barr will come to the side of transparency when it comes to the Mueller fishing expedition. I don’t think he will side with those in and out of Congress who have presented evidence against certain FBI and DOJ employees showing that they illicitly cleared Hillary Clinton from wrongdoing and these same FBI and DOJ flunkies then went on to conspire to frame Donald Trump in made-up Russia collusions involving the apparatchiks’ FISA abuses to spy on the Trump campaign (apparatchiks including, allegedly, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates).

In the end, I believe, AG Barr will come to the defense of the national security state and all its criminality and corruption in regards to “Russia-gate” and the Mueller fiasco. I’ll be surprised if the outcome is otherwise, and if Barr actually encourages Trump to order the FISA warrants or FISA warrant applications declassified, and lets the truth be known to the general public, and if Barr actually demands that Comey et al. (including John Brennan as well) be indicted. And will AG Barr open a new investigation of the Clintons? I rather doubt it. Call me cynical.

Prisoners of the National Security State And Corrupt Prosecutors

Law professor Jonathan Turley blogged about conservative investigative reporter Jerome Corsi’s being pursued by “special counsel” Robert Mueller, and noted that Corsi filed a “criminal and ethics complaint” against Herr Mueller for attempting to pressure Corsi to intentionally give false testimony.

Turley writes, “There is no strong legal basis for such a challenge.” Hmm, you mean it’s illegal to lie under oath, but it’s not illegal to lie under oath if the prosecutors threaten you otherwise? Is that what Turley is saying here?

Turley concludes, “Prosecutors and police will often push witnesses with accusations and demands. However, if the charge is based on independent grounds, courts are leery of speculating on motive. After all, if Mueller’s team truly believes that Corsi was a critical player with Wikileaks, they are allowed to press a witness on that theory.”

Some of the commenters wrote, “Come on Turley, if you had any reasoned compassion (or stones), you’d see the justice in hunting the wolf and the routine injustice done by federal prosecutors.” And, “Yep. Looks like Turley pulled back the curtain and gives inside baseball type look at our criminal justice system: if persecutors have theories then they can move with unfettered zealotry on potential witnesses with culture of defense attorneys and judges turning blind eye on this type of abusive behavior.” And, “The truly sad reality is how comfortable our constitutional scholar host is at describing how lawfare works without a hint of the injustice of it.”

Some of the commenters then go on to say that Turley’s initial description of Corsi might be biased.

I have a feeling that liberal progressive Turley could be more sympathetic to Corsi and less sympathetic to the prosecutors if Corsi were not a conservative. But I could be wrong. I probably am wrong, because Turley has generally been quite objective in defense of those who are the victims of government overreach or of prosecutorial misconduct.

On those issues, Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote about Trump campaign minion Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, and about Trump current lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s recent comments on the Mueller fishing expedition.

After summarizing Giuliani’s record as a sleazy, corrupt prosecutor in New York during the 1980s, and noting some of Giuliani’s grandiose and frankly deranged treatment of his victims at the time, Judge Napolitano then writes, “The courts have ruled many times that prosecutors, FBI agents and police may lie, cheat, threaten, intimidate, coerce and deceive to extract cooperation and obtain evidence from witnesses. This is the dark side of the criminal justice system. It requires a strong stomach. It can be used against even the president.”

And by “to extract cooperation and obtain evidence” he probably means obtain false confessions or false testimony against others in exchange for leniency, or based on threats of false prosecution, probably for made-up crimes such as “insider trading” or “process crimes,” such as “lying to prosecutors” for merely recalling something inaccurately.

Government judicial system apparatchiks use the system to go after someone they don’t like, or based on political differences, such as the Obama FBI and DOJ abusing already unconstitutional FISA spying authority to either find dirt on their political opponents of the Trump campaign or make it all up, such as with the Steele dossier. That is what this whole made-up “Russia collusions/hacking the election” is all about.

Government apparatchiks, with a monopoly over the administration of justice, also go after innocent people for reasons other than political ones, including advancing an agenda of bamboozling the public to accept more governmental intrusions into their lives and a police state. Such as the FBI infiltrating mosques to motivate young Muslim males to want to commit “jihad” in order for the FBI to thwart terrorist plots that the FBI themselves concoct.

Or the CIA using software to not only hide their own cyber “fingerprints” but to leave fake fingerprints, such as spoofed IP addesses, etc. to make it look like Russians or others did the hacking, phishing, or otherwise computer intrusions.

Or NSA stealing industry secrets, and NSA or Britain’s GCHQ in an “information ops” campaign to “manipulate, deceive, and destroy reputations,” using made-up stuff to discredit individuals and companies.

Sadly, because of our government’s apparatchiks exploiting what James Bovard has called “Battered Citizen Syndrome,” the people continue to blindly accept the criminal racket in Washington. Any one of us could be the next victim of bureaucrats’ political witch hunts and crusades.

The current national security state- and Democrat-led “witch hunt” fiasco is yet another example why letting our lives be ruled by elites with a monopoly in “justice” is not good. We should probably dismantle the whole thing.

The Mueller Crime Spree Continues

Is the Mueller Inquisition still going on? I can’t believe it. The latest is that conservative investigative reporter Jerome Corsi is being pursued by Mueller, as well as Roger Stone. All this bunch of stuff is involving Corsi and Stone’s alleged communications with WikiLeaks hacker Julian Assange.

The national security state and the fake news media are really after Assange because of his providing an apparatus for government whistleblowers to expose government criminality. The criminals of the national security state don’t like that!

Corsi is now alleging that Mueller was trying to coerce him into deliberately and knowingly lie in testimony in exchange for, I don’t know, a “lighter sentence” or whatever, and Corsi says he won’t do that and is in fact going to sue Mueller and his cohorts.

This reminds me of how CIA Gitmo torturers have been torturing innocent, uninvolved victims as a way to get false confessions and to falsely justify a 2nd invasion of Iraq, in 2003. So, while the criminals of the national security state entrap someone for “lying” to FBI or to Congress, it is they the government criminals who want people to lie when it benefits their agenda, or who want to criminally invade another country based on lies.

Besides the latest in the news with Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone, I heard some of the John Batchelor Show this week and he interviewed a Larry Johnson regarding so-called “Individual 2” of the Mueller Inquisition, “Individual 2” being a Russian FBI informant named Felix Sater who had infiltrated the Trump organization as early as 2003, according to what was said on the show. Sater supposedly had been an FBI informant since 1998.

According to the Examiner, Sater was a childhood friend of Michael Cohen, the scummy former Trump lawyer and flipper-on-Trump. Sater has also gotten into bar fights, was a stock broker and was involved with the Mafia. And it appears that Mueller wants to make use of Sater’s business dealings with Trump over the past 15 years to try to get Trump. Supposedly Sater’s association with Trump’s organization over the years as an FBI informant was mainly to help the FBI go after “organized crime.” (Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.)

So the FBI really has had an agenda of getting Trump since 2003? (Or earlier?)

These bureaucrats of the FBI and other national security state (or “deep state”) operatives, as well as many in politics and pop culture since 2016, are obsessed with getting Trump and impeaching and removing him from office.

It was not like that with George W. Bush or Ronald Reagan, even though many on the left hated those two while they were President. But then, they were not nearly as successful businessmen as apparently Donald Trump has been all these years.

So I think this Mueller-Comey-Brennan conspiracy of going after Trump fits the typical pattern of government bureaucrats going after private businesspeople, whether it’s Rudy Giuliani targeting Michael Milken, James Comey targeting Martha Stewart, and many, many other bureaucrats targeting those in the private sector who had been successful entrepreneurs prospering with their talents and abilities through the process of voluntary exchange to serve the needs of others.

Bureaucrat prosecutors who are life-long government employees (or following government employment continuing in crony lobbying or or consulting firms) are the opposite of the entrepreneurs who serve the consumers. The bureaucrats are parasites who go through life siphoning off the fruits of other people’s labor as well as shooting down their victims using the judicial branch of government to do it.

As I wrote in this post, the real motivation of those who want to get Trump is out of envy and covetousness. Bureaucrats and their supporters in the media and “intelligentsia” are haters of the successful, haters of the “greedy capitalists.” The haters have what Ludwig von Mises called an “anti-capitalistic mentality.” [Also see Mises’s Bureaucracy (.pdf)]
