Panic? Fusion GPS Releasing Its Own Book, Defending Its Coup
Plus: Whoa

The book is coming out November 26th.

A couple of weeks ago, Roger L. Simon wrote about Democrat Deep State panic:

Comey and Mueller--separated at birth, two extremely pompous liars. No wonder they're pals. But leave all that aside. What has Durham found, possibly in concert with his superior AG William Barr, that necessitated expansion of his work?

It could be related to the length of time it is taking Inspector General Michael Horowitz to deliver his more limited report that has been repeatedly promised for some months now. Previously, Horowitz was criticized for pulling his punches on the Hillary Clinton investigation. This will not be so easy now with Barr and Durham going over the same material. Horowitz is not able to interview those no longer working for the government--most of the potential miscreants having slipped away--but Barr and Durham have no such restriction. They can follow leads anywhere.

Recently that has taken them to Italy to speak with intelligence officials. They have also apparently spoken with their peers in Australia and the UK. Did something come of that? It would be strange if it didn't, especially now that we have learned that Durham's mission has expanded, "adding agents and resources.".


This indeed should strike fear in the hearts of the Democrats. The Department of Justice holds the whip hand. They can indict people.

Note that while Maria Bartiromo said sources were telling her that the Horowitz report would be "thick as a telephone book" and would be released this coming Friday, she has now retracted that:

UPDATE: -IG report NOT out this Friday 10/18. Classifications being made. Likely end of month.

Okay, another delay.

She also reported that she's hearing that "it's about more than FISA abuse." That hasn't been retracted.

Check this thread out: it claims that Joe Biden, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and a host of other DNC all-stars had a dinner with the suspected fake "whistleblower" and the suspected second fake "whistleblower" -- in October 2016.

Below, Chuck Ross' tweets about Fusion GPS' newest propaganda effort.

And the "Whoa."



Whoa:

The changing release date of the report can be looked at as kind of funny.

The criminals are all sweating.

The Dems and their mob are trying to create chaos and loud noise at the exact optimum time, but they do not know when it is being released. It's like Barr and company are pulling the rug out from under all of them, trolling them, baiting them and increasing their panic.

I am more curious about what Biden was talking about. He said that President Bush has to "be removed" then went on saying "on the 17th..." then stopped.

Now maybe that was a senior moment, he seemed to have a bunch in the debate, but does he know of something planned for tomorrow?

I can think of a few reasons, such as: the book will make Simpson money instead of having to spend money on journalists. Hey, may eve be receiving a sort of payout via the publisher (see all the politicians getting book deals that exceed book sales).

Also, Simpson can dodge answering questions by saying, "It's in my book."

The government only moved to secret iphones 2 years ago. Before that, blackberries. Blackberry could be adequately encrypted, cell phones could not. Apple had to agree to do certain things to it to get them to pass the encryption tests, and then it took a while. They're always the LAST model, not the current one and have been tested.

Durham is there to scoop up a few small fry to impress the folks while Barr is there to assure the governments they won't be shafted.

Trump is not blowing smoke, he knows all.


The fundamental problem is the magnitude of what was attempted.


The Obama administration using elements of the FBI, CIA, NSA, State, DOJ, Five Eyes allies, foreign assets, NGO's and a cast of 1000's, spied on and tried to destroy then Republican Presidential Candidate Trump and having failed that left the task to Deep State operatives to take down a sitting President through the use of a rouge SC and having failed that have now corrupted and turned to the IG apparatus against the President to try to synthesize a causus beli for impeachment and removal from office.


In order to deliver justice you are talking about jailing, at minimum, three dozen malefactors on up to the former President of the United States.


That is simply not going to happen.


So we must prepare ourselves that the perpetrators of this coup will more than likely escape justice because the magnitude of what they did would topple the government.

This guy gets it - we are asking for justice and reform, which in this case effectively means regime change, because as things stand, it's not that the government is corrupt. It's that corruption is the government.

We're essentially asking the US federal government to dissolve itself as currently constituted.

246 There's a good chance Glenn Simpson is connected to the FISA abuse investigation. Not just that his paid oppo research "dossier" was used to get the FISA warrant on Carter Page (with the FBI withholding that t was paid oppo research for a candidate).

The recent news about illegal FISA surveillance queries - the millions of queries in the NSA db weren't merely agent 1 checking up on a potential girlfriend. No, it was that two FBI contractors - unnamed - were given access to perform these queries. The speculation is that the contractors were Crowdstrike and/or Fusion GPS.

THAT is a big deal, because it would mean that our FBI gave a company that performs oppo research for US candidates (primarily Democrats) *and* who is paid by said candidates and foreign governments* to create/plant stories in US media that suit their political business goals. Can you imagine how big a deal that is - given agents of a foreign government access to the NSA dbs to dig up dirt on key US citizens???

This is why the fact that the Fusion GPS dossier includes that Trump lawyer Cohen went to Poland. He didn't, but this appears to indicate a mistake found during an NSA db query on a common name - Michael Cohen.

I think of this in relation to Mueller - Mueller will never appear in public again, not under any circumstances. All sides hate him too much. After what should have been a long and distinguished career, the only way he will be remembered will be from his very last appearance on camera, in which he was just a confused old man who had no idea what he was talking about, and who all sides agreed had totally failed at the incredibly important job which he had been given.

That's his epitaph.

Mark Sanford's epitaph is that picture of him giving a campaign speech to a completely empty patch of grass.

Joe Walsh's epitaph is going to be a picture of the Appleby's where he's going to end up waiting tables.

I'm not eeyoring or whatever. I'm not unhappy. I've accepted what is.

And I AM happy that Trump is exposing it all, and I'm glad the public will see the truth in the coming reports. And I'm glad that it's causing people on the Right to grow angrier and angrier daily.

These are all important milestones. A moment that will later be considered of historic importance.

There are three options


Force your opponent to play by the rules
Change the rules
Don't play by the rules

Oh I forgot the 4th option. Be the 1% that wins.


Right now I think the DOJ is trying the first option.

A Wall-o-Text of info forwarded to me this a.m.:

I went out to Charing Cross to see Major-General Harrison* hanged, drawn, and quartered -- which was done there -- he looking as cheerful as any man could do in that condition. - Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) (diary, 13 October 1660)


Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage. - William Shakespeare (1564-1616) (Twelfth Night, Act I, Sc. 5)


It is sweet to dance to violins
When Love and Life are fair:
To dance to flutes, to dance to lutes
Is delicate and rare:
But it is not sweet with nimble feet
To dance upon the air!
- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)** (The Ballad of Reading Gaol, Sct. 2)


(Well, this is quite a day for executions. In 1555, during the reign of England's Queen Mary Tudor ("Bloody Mary"), the Protestant martyrs Bishop Hugh Latimer (1485?-1555) and Bishop Nicholas Ridley (1500?-1555) were burned at the stake at Oxford, with the former remarking,

"Be of good cheer, Master Ridley, and play the man. We shall this day light such a candle by God's grace in England, as I trust will never go out." [And it didn't...]

And in 1793, the Austrian-born Marie Antoinette (1755-1793), queen of the ill-fated French king Louis XVI, was guillotined on the Place de la Concord in Paris, saying,

"Farewell, my children, forever, I am going to your father."

Finally, it was on this day in 1946 that ten prominent Nazi war criminals (Jodl, Keitel, Ribbentrop, Rosenberg, et al) were hanged at Nuremberg.*** If memory serves correctly, at least one of them went to his death saying, "Heil Hitler!"

Although personally I believe that the death penalty has no place in a civilized nation, I do see a certain logic in the position of French journalist Alphonse Karr (1808-1890), who noted,

"If we are to abolish the death penalty, I should like to see the first step taken by my friends, the murderers." )

* N.B. Thomas Harrison was one of the regicides executed after the Restoration for the beheading of Charles I (in 1649). He is said to have faced his barbarous death bravely, saying, "By God, I have leapt over a wall, by God I have run through a troop, and by God I will go through this death, and He will make it easy."

** And today just happens to be his birthday...

*** On that same day, Hermann Goering cheated the hangman by committing suicide with a cyanide capsule that had been implanted inside his mouth

How many such delays is tis? about 50 probably.

OK, I mean mid-October, be patient. Well, a few more details to wrap up ... see you in November ...


Many key people were not even getting interviewed ... maybe Rudy and Judicial Watch and others are forcing some real action. Taking down DeepState is indeed a major operation, and witnesses like Epstein (Mifsud next?) go missing or wake up dead.


A bit of hope? ... "Charles Ortel, the financial analyst who foretold the collapse of General Electric, said Monday that the arrest of the Singh brothers in India was more than significant to the case building against the Clinton Foundation" ...


they were involved with the fake HIV drugs the Clintons peddled (with no legal right to do so), and other Clinton crimes. So at least maybe, finally, a few of the arrests that should have happened years ago are happening now, which is how you get the rats to rat out the Clintons (not by arresting no one and tick tocking promises for years ... covering it with a pillow)

++++++++++++
I don't think we're *quite* there yet, but it's getting close. Another several years of the same and we will absolutely be there.

It can be saved without a "full collapse and self-removal of the entire government" - but only through the wholesale slaughter of every sacred calf in existence. Every piece of dirty laundry needs to be aired, all of the very bad actors need to be jailed, most of the rest of the government needs to be sacked, and congress and the executive need to work together to roll back virtually all of the law and regulation passed over the past 20-30 years.

I think that would prevent the outcome you predict. I also think that the odds of any of that - let alone of that - happening are zero. I don't think we get out as easy as the USSR, though. The USSR shut down well before true desperation and collapse came to it. Our corruptocrats lack that kind of vision and foresight.

317 I don't have a problem with maintaining NATO in general. Obviously it needs a major shake up and possibly some expulsions. But in general, I don't have an issue with the idea of an alliance focused on stopping true enemies. The former Eastern Bloc countries such as Poland seem to have been been pretty good at having our back. But I do think the whole thing needs a major come to Jesus moment with the idea it can be dissolved if it does not change radically. Also, they need a clear mission statement. A major update should happen.

+++++++++++
The local cops don't deal with people who are above the law. Washington bigwigs are above the law, so the Washington cops have to be very careful with what they release so that it will justify general inaction. They have to decide how bad it is, whether they can get away with *no* punishments at all, determine who - there must be punishments meted out - will go down in order to maintain the narrowest possible cross-section of exposure to justice, etc.

It's much harder work when you're dealing with insiders who are generally immune to consequences. I think much of the work is figuring out precisely how much punishment they have to bring to the table to hold onto their corrupt power structure, and who will go down for it.

I suspect 1-3 arrests, and only 1-2 arrests will be anyone of consequence. It all has to be set up and agreed to in advance.

There is open field between now and this goal. It will start with the Hunter Biden graft. They made no effort to hide it.

There has to be SWIFT records of every transaction of US taxpayer dollars laundered through poor countries like Ukraine and outright bribes and selling secrets to this country's adversaries.

The longer it takes for the average citizen to open his eyes to this disgusting, downright un-American graft, the more frenzied the backlash will be.

Hunter Biden is more perfect as corruption's poster child than that Swedish child actress with the unfortunate facial features (she takes after her father) is for teenage mental derangement.

All good points.


It is presumed that Mueller was using the NSA database to try to frame Trump, using the same technique. Find out dates of a person's travels, then use that to confirm a fabricated story "aha, see, Trump called this location, just as we suspected".


But they start with the innocent timeline, and concoct a malicious framing of it to create a "Trump/Russia" narrative. They add in some Fusion fiction script writing, and sell it as TheNarrative through the media. The public already convicts Trump in this fake kangaroo court of public (Narrative Driven) opinion.


Trump is left to "Prove His Innocence", as the Mueller report says "We Failed to Prove Trump Innocent". These should be hanging offenses, a coup by our own shadow government "resistance army".

I saw that it involves real estate valuations. Anyone who has ever put together any of those knows that there are many different methods you can use to give a value to a property, all valid even though they give different numbers. You use the method that addresses the purpose for which you're intending it.

sophisticated buyers know to look at valuations from multiple methods, compare them, and come up with an acceptable price on their own, that's what business negotiations are all about. The idea that there is one single number which represents "value" is only held by those with no experience.

Barr's DOJ is still denying access to Mifsud's phone information in the Flynn case so they are as corrupt as they ever were and Barr is not exercising any control over the actions of his department. Either he is waiting until he has everything in place with the Durham investigation, or he is just going to issue reports and no one will ever be punished.

They've proven they have no respect for us or our method of government and went to some lengths to overthrow it from within. All the while declaring their true patriotism which is so far above and beyond the Constitution that only they can see or understand it.

That's pretty serious stuff and deserves to be punished seriously.

Jeff Sessions has a long career ahead as a spokesman for a memory foam pillow company. Sleep anywhere in comfort and style!

I suspect 1-3 arrests, and only 1-2 arrests will be anyone of consequence. It all has to be set up and agreed to in advance.

You
cannot arrest 1-3, have 1-3 go tits up, and be left holding a bag of
empty promises. If anything, all of the 20 or so from Strzok and Page on
up, who can be shown to have broken any law should be rounded up, 4am
no-knock raid style, then start talking immunity and plea deals.
Either it is as big as promised, or a lot of people are going to say WTF was all this talk about.

Their (DOJ) actions will speak volumes about the rule of law. People walk for such b.s. reasons as "no intent" -- then why should the general population hold any laws as binding?

393 On the positive side, Trump is now mentioning Obama in connection with all of this mess. Given how careful he has been in the past to not bring Obama into it, I suspect that he now has information which makes him comfortable doing so.

Trump is always right about this stuff in advance of what becomes known such as what happened with the wiretapping etc...

394 So I go into a book store (if I can find one) and look for this book. Where will I find it? Fiction? Political Science? Drama? The discount table?

395 Safe to assume we are in possession of the phones because they were given to Mifsud by Brennan to use while approaching Papadopoulos and Flynn as an OCUNUS LURE (sp?)??

Very late here and some one may have said this, but my thought was that the DOJ now has Mifsud's phone because Barr got it from him last week.

Everybody works for Milo, Yossarian.

I'd like to see Brennan Clapper and Comey holed up at Brennan's hide out when the G-Men close in - all three go out in a massive shoot out - guns blazing - Breenan gets the final bullet just as he screams out "Viva la 'Bama!" Ten reporters from ABC NBC and CBS get taken out in the shootout's collateral damage.

Its a dream I have..

398 Trump had to wait out Mueller. It's obvious now that he has to wait out all IGs in case they are deep state then come in with Barr. Barr will not act until all IG reports are published.

399 Deep Staters not going anywhere except on vacation with their plush federal pensions. Not a single one indicted. Ever.
