The Morning Report - 12/3/19

gumbarr.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and the sham-peachment chronicles get bumped from the lead as our top story is the impending release of DoJ IG Michael Horowitz's report on FISA abuse. In this case, it's the reaction from AG William Barr who reportedly does not concur with Horowitz's findings that the FBI did have enough evidence/information to open up the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign. This, of course is a complete crock since the players involved, specifically Alexander Downer, Joseph Mifsud and Stephan Halper colluded (heh) to entrap low-level Trump staffer George Papadopoulos with the bait of dirt/e-mails on Hillary Clinton, thereby setting in motion the whole "Russian collusion" narrative.

Well, considering Horowitz's Deep State pedigree we all kind of expected this to be another Comey whitewash. Plus, with Lisa Page now popping up and flapping her gargantuan gums about her innocence, and popping off at Trump for being mean to her about her tacky sexcapades with junior g-man Strzok, it's evident she knows she's in the clear. We also have the execrable bastard Andrew Weissmann, famous for railroading innocent people into multi-decade prison sentences, and the equally slimy Glenn Simpson, whose company Fusion-GPS specializes in manufacturing lies out of whole cloth for the purposes of smearing Leftists' political enemies, suddenly appearing on TV to claim the mantle of champions of justice, in an effort to minimize any damage the investigation might engender, or use as a whitewash to yet again attack Trump.

But, the investigations by Barr and US Attorney John Durham are still ongoing and I don't think either of them is going to sweep this under the rug. Do not let Barr's sort of disarming demeanor fool you; he strikes me as someone with character and a real sense of justice who is determined to get to the bottom of this and see some sort of justice done as well as attempt to clear the sullied name of the law enforcement institutions that he perhaps has or at least had pride in serving in, if that's even possible. Over the past few weeks he has given speeches and made statements that at least give some hope that there is at least one decent person in that nest of lawless tyrants. Now, will we see the likes of Comey, Brennan and Clapper, let alone Clinton and Obama, get perp-walked? I still have serious doubts about that. There is zero doubt in my mind that the latter two were the masterminds of this whole thing. At the very least, they knew about the plot and approved it. The actions of other regime capos like Samantha Power and Susan Rice in the final days of the bunker with all the unmaskings and the finagling of last second CYA e-mails are no less of a tell. All that said, people must be held accountable, and not just some second or third string bureaucrat. If an Obama or a Clinton, or at the very least Comey, Brennan or Clapper were to be indicted, what would that do to our already fractious political environment, which is ironic considering it is them and their political allies that have debased it to this low point in the first place? Perhaps our legal system is as far gone as the nation itself at this point and is beyond resuscitation. In any case, the Democrat-Media Complex will, and in fact is already spinning that these investigations are nothing more than an attempt to distract from Trump's alleged crimes and are abuses of power and persecution of his political enemies. Madness.

The bottom line for me is people have got to swing for this. Plus, the unaccountable and permanent bureaucracies that allowed this and all other depredations and abuses upon we the people have got to be neutralized if not completely dismantled. If not, make no mistake; the next time they gain power it will be us on the wrong end of the rope, figuratively and literally.

Plus it allows the left to run out the clock in the election, because there ain't no way Durham is going to do anything before the election. If there's one thing that's obvious it's that the DOJ can take something that should take one month and stretch it into a year.

26 I do not understand how FBI thought or suspected trump was dirty (and after obama and Hillary.tis to laugh) if there were legitimate fears there would have been evidence of that? Instead of taking and planting suspicions in the media to vet for a warrants?.

Assuming that by "Clinton" you mean Hillary, I can't get my head around either her or Obama being the "mastermind" of anything. Jarrett and Slick Willie, yes. But the former two are basically figureheads.

No, I take that back. Figureheads are made of wood. Barack and Hillary are just cardboard cutouts.

First, the IG can recommend or not recommend prosecution. The final decision to go or not is with Barr. And it looks as if he is going to go ahead even if Horowitz pulls a Comey.

It certainly appears the original plan was the coronation of Felonia Von Pantsuit, and then throw Mr. Trump in prison. That floofy quote - "...his kind must never be allowed to rise again". It's obvious. The UniParty has a long running con game going.

Scankles lost. But they still went (and continue) going through the motions. And obviously has the continued effect of signaling "Don't Try This At Home, Kids."

59 America really needed Horowitz to come through before the mid-terms, and he failed to deliver. He proved he is a scummy POS right then and there, as far I could tell, so I really am almost indifferent (surprisingly) to how he does this time around.

That doesn't mean that any of the rumors are accurate; their is a lot of incentive for people to put their spin on something, to make it either sound worse or better. A lot of people talk big about things they know nothing about in order to inflate their prestige, and I bet that goes double in DC.

The NYC gun law case is also capable of repetition yet evading review, given the leftist a-holes in NYC are determined to annihilate gun rights and have changed the law (at least for the time being) only because they knew they'd lose in SCOTUS if they didn't. And if Roberts punts, there is nothing to stop these jerks from changing the law back again.

132 Willowed from ONT, just because this is a far more interesting topic:

If an angry right-winger decided to start the Civil War II on his own, now, and shot up the local Dem campaign office, that would might just be icing on the cake from the Left's perspective.

I don't buy the moral equivalence or the random distribution theory of right vs left.

So what does it mean to be Right vs Left? My definition includes r/K strategy, views on the Imago Dei, Ice vs Sun people, rational thinking over emotions, reliance on psychotropics to manage state of mind, etc.

Unstable people do tend to be Leftists, the empirical evidence abounds.

Those who are on mind altering drugs, or recently broke off from their meds, are often found to do horrific violence.

There are others, but mostly its drug dealing/business or personal (e.g. fighting over a taco or for exclusive access to a woman)

So I don't buy the "angry right-winger-starting-CW-2.0". (and I don't see this as an No True Scotsman fallacy thinking either)

In fact, that is often a lament in this crowd that there is no atrocity that will stir up a critical mass of us enough to violently put down the domestic enemy.

We are an army of armchair war commanders. And that is probably a good thing, because when White People go to war, it isn't retail war, its full out institutional/industrial sized levels of violence.

Then there are people like me who know that I wouldn't survive CW 2.0 (despite all of training and equipment) just because I don't have weapons against the disease and long term famine that follows.

And quite frankly, looking at the people around me, none of them are worth one drop of my blood, since the very first government they would establish would be one that is antithetical to a Constitutional Republic.

Basically, we would be Zimbabwe with smoking ruins and very few people with any survival skills other than ceding power to the first war lord who makes any sort of promise to them.

Trump must make sure that the courts don't turn Texas blue by judicial fiat or Freedom is snuffed out around the Globe.

137 Avoiding Britain's Dead End Foreign Policy Fate
_______

I didn't think much of that one. It treats uncertain arguments as settled, as that Britain would have been better off with Germany dominating Europe, and that hostile control of the Low Countries was not important.

The bottom line is that the author treats Michael Howard's take as definitive. But within the world of military historians, it just isn't. It's not even that he lowballs the importance of seapower, as even Liddell Hart took the opposite take.

When you get down to it, in strategic terms, the arguments for fighting in 1914 are no so different than those for fighting in 1939. (And note that the question of WHETHER to fight is different from that of HOW to do so. Hart changed his view of the Somme, early on. And the navalists never thought it a good idea.)

~BEGIN FIRST DRAFT~

The structure of our law enforcement and intelligence institutions have been carefully crafted over decades to best serve the interests of American people. There do appear to have been a very few senior level personnel that may have made some very minor mistakes in judgment, but their intentions were always honorable and good, served the best interests of the American people, and literally none of the hard-working, straight-shooting forthright men and women of these agencies were involved!

Our recommended plan forward is simple, we shall conduct extensive rigorous candor training programs, with embossed certificates, for the very few bureaucrats who had brief, but temporary, lapses in their usual exercise of candor and appropriate behavior. There will also be extensive courses (and practical demonstrations) in the control and destruction of sensitive government documents, past, present, and future.

With such an aggressive remediation program such as this, we see no reason to alter the structure of any established critical government bureaucracy or to unnecessarily penalize any current or former official in any government agency in any way shape or form.

The first set of courses will begin on 1 FEB 2020 in Aruba, and a list of reserved hotels will be forthcoming!

It's scary to think about, but often I do: Had our baby been born 50 or
60 years ago, she might not have made it. But thanks to science,
medicine, and modern American free-market health care, by 28 weeks, more
than 90 percent of babies survive an early delivery. By 34 weeks, those
chances increase to 99 percent.


Bingo.

I can. What I can't believe is that the people in government that are supposed to be defending our freedoms refuse to do it. The right to free speech is being violated, blatantly so, with absolutely no consequences. Not enforcing the law is emboldening our domestic enemies. The more they can get away with, the more they'll do to oppress us deplorables and that includes PDT.

162 Thanks for the link to that Codevilla piece, J.J.; here's a pull-quote to contemplate that'll wake one up in the morning:



"Ordinary Americans in voting for Trump got a loud voice on their behalf, but no shield. Between 2016 and 2020, we have been pressed as never before to bow to the ruling class's ever-escalating demands for conformity to its whims -- such as to pretend that we join them in accepting that men can be women, and women can be men, on pain of dire social and economic consequences.


Not even the monsters depicted in Darkness At Noon, in Nineteen Eighty-Four or in Animal Farm, never mind Stalin's Soviet Union or Mao's China, or Hitler's Germany, ever demanded such subrational submission."

209 Before Glenn Beck went insane, one of his eye-opening truths was to declare the right-center-left paradigm a myth.

At the American Revolution, roughly one third wanted liberty, one third were Tories, and one third couldn't care less.

I don't buy a horizontal Right/Left where one secular government competes against another secular government - that is pure Nietzsche, where tribes fight against the others to establish the prevailing societal truth claims.

This is why "Diversity Is Our Strength" really means warring factions give power to the mightiest warlords - and the warlord that controls banks, the US military and the courts is the most powerful war lord.

If I have to use a Right v Left paradigm, I hope the audience understands that it is a continuum, but more importantly, there is a vertical component that sees transcendent morality, wisdom and truth as guidance rather than malleable "social constructs" and "privilege".

Is there any work being done to eventually, but ASAP, write a report that integrates the various DoJ IG reports, Durham's work, whatever the hell Huber did, and other information into a "connect the dots" story that reveals how the Deep State colluded to get Trump? If not, why not? The Media sure as hell is not going to do any investigative digging and reporting on this subject.

perfect clarity is that after the first shots of CWII are fired, the
narrative from the left will be about how we started it. This will be
more important to them than the outcome of the war itself for them.

In all likelihood they will straight-out fake it, and then they will cling to that story with religious fervor.

239 174 "In our White House, you won't have to shake your head and ask yourself, 'Whatever happened to I was hungry and you fed me, I was a stranger and
you welcomed me," Buttigieg says
_________________

But in Butt-gag's WH, you will still have to ask why we can't keep the promises we made to our own military veterans, to provide them with the medical care they needed when they came back home. No, they'll still be waiting for the doctor's appointments they never get, while the local VA urges them to hurry up and die already.

But hey, the good news is that Juan the drug-dealing pedophile who snuck over the border a couple of months ago is going to get his "free" kidney transplant at your local hospital, courtesy of us welcoming and tolerant U.S. taxpayers. And Juan won't have to wait for any of his appointments, because unlike our military vets, he's valued and special to Butt-gag's ruling class.

We already have 30-40 million (or more) "strangers" who made their way into our country illegally, and have been living here and sucking up our resources, to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars each year, and Butt-gag and his buddies want to wave in the over one billion more who have said they want to come. Of course they want to come here! Why wouldn't they? They get treated better than our own citizens, they don't have to file or pay income taxes, they get "free" medical care, "free" schooling for their kids, "free" food stamps and other welfare benefits, and they get a free "get out of jail" card when they commit crimes here, because they're a special protected class.

Meanwhile, millions of Americans can barely afford health insurance, millions more can't go to a doctor when they need to because they either can't afford it, or they can't find one who'll take their shitty Medicaid payments, but Butt-gag and his buddies are certain that these cash-strapped Americans can afford to subsidize hundreds of millions more third-world poor coming here to live off us. Well f*ck him and his phony virtue. Charity begins at home.

Ok. Wow.

It's not even that.

It's that he believes that's the truth!

And it's not just him but millions of Democrats who--without evidence--truly believe Trump sought help from both Russia and the Ukraine!

So he's going to release his "report" tomorrow. And it's going to be described by every news organization as Moses delivering the stone tablets.

Right about what? He was way wrong on Sessions, and crazy wrong on John Huber. He was probably wrong on Rosenstein, though there is still a story to be learned there. He way overestimated the impacts of the Horowitz report last year, and the other Horowitz report earlier this year. He was wrong on the anger he expected from Rosemary Collyer over the fraudulent treatment the FISC received from the FBI and DOJ. None of those things have happened.


Where I hope he is absolutely right is in his faith that there is someone in the government bureaucracy who is powerful and wants to redeem our political institutions, like maybe William Barr. If Barr is willing to clean out the DOJ, then as far as I'm concerned all of Jackstraw's earlier faith was justified. Though maybe a little slow in coming.

281 From 'Democrats want to manage, not represent, you' link:

A lazy, decadent party that only cares about protecting its own power
can hardly be expected to inspire confidence and enthusiasm in the
people. With the exception of one or two candidates, none of these
people are running to be president of the United States: they're
auditioning to protect the powerful.

The Democratic presidential primary is a Potemkin mock-up of democracy
controlled by gate-keepers in the corporate leftist media and party
establishment. It's a reality show put on by the ruling class, with the
purpose of anointing a champion of the status quo to defeat Trump and
keep America on a track of inexorable failure.
The candidates agree on
ninety percent of the issues, and they ignore real problems which their
ideology does not allow them to acknowledge.


"they're
auditioning to protect the powerful" --- Nailed it!

Obama's remarks about him taking out Biden Warren, Bernie made to people who then leak it to the MSM gives the game away. You citizens will NOT be deciding on the candidate.


These elites obviously still wield immense power, and it's debatable
whether Trump has really challenged their hold on it or whether his mark
on the Republican party will last. But there comes a point when a
social order becomes so unfair, so corrupted, so indefensible that it
can't be justified, and any attempt to defend the status quo can only
fail to move an incredulous public. We have reached that stage.


Yes, we have. Now what?

Again, Horowitz was not tasked to go anywhere near this. Horowitz is looking at whether the DOJ and FBI complied with internal DOJ/FBI rules and processes during their FISA application and use within the FISA court.

The Washington Post wants to sell a narrative that AG Bill Barr is not accepting the inspector general finding on the origin of the Russia investigation; but the inspector general did not investigate the origin of the Russia investigation.

It's not just that he predicted doom and gloom, it's that he was an asshole about it generally. And then on the Kentucky and Virginia election night, he lorded it over everyone.

I never hated him as much as many others did, but that thread was awful.

286 I can. What I can't believe is that the people in government that are supposed to be defending our freedoms refuse to do it. The right to free speech is being violated, blatantly so, with absolutely no consequences. Not enforcing the law is emboldening our domestic enemies. The more they can get away with, the more they'll do to oppress us deplorables and that includes PDT.

--

This is exactly correct. I see the useless GOP doing absolutely nothing about this blatant violation of the Constitutional rights of those who are being adversely affected. Everyone knows about it. Everyone sees it. And it's growing exponentially. As I've believed all along, they 1) secretly agree with the censorship on some level and 2) they surely enjoy having their pockets stuffed to some degree by these same entities who are blatantly censoring those they don't like.

And worse than that, especially with Kentucky, he utterly refused to see that the GOP swept literally everything in the state. Only the toxicly unpopular governor was defeated, narrowly, and likely inside the Margin of Fraud.

VA is well and truly lost but it's interesting that, poorly as they did, the GOP scored more votes for legislative seats than the Donks so the Donks can thank state and federal courts, plus wine-moms in the swamp counties of NoVa for their majorities.

Are you talking about JackStraw who posts at AoSHQ? Because if you are, your comments seriously misrepresent just about everything he has ever said.

How do you know he was wrong about Sessions? John Huber was appointed by Sessions, and Barr has indicated that Huber is indeed working on the Clinton angle.

Do you have a line on Rosenstein? I believe the jury is still out on that--let's wait and see what shakes out.

JackStraw has consistently, without fail, reminded us all that Horowitz is an IG and has no prosecutorial power and therefore we should not expect too much from his reports. He did say that the FISA IG report will be more consequential, and I believe that to be true. Again, let's wait and see.

And he was "wrong on the anger he expected from Rosemary Collyer"--what the heck does that even mean? She sure sounded pissed off in her report.

I don't understand the vitriol thrown at JS. To my mind, he has always treated even his worst detractors with civility.

This always amuses me - not that it's from Copenhagen. It's a game in which small men from tiny countries that don't have enough military power to repeal a half dozen jihadis armed with slingshots fantasize that there's some army with power somewhere that they could play toy soldiers with.

359 Re Virginia gun confiscation.

Say you moved from Failfornia to Virginia. Federal government employee and had family in Failfornia. And moved to Virginia with your Failfornia registered AR.
Now Virginia bans the AR.
Because of Failfornia's law once you cross state lines with your AR you can't return with it. Not even to take it target shooting in Nevada for a day.

So with the Virginia confiscation and the Failfornia law blocking returning the AR to family in Failfornia you are effectively disarmed.

No AR for you.

I believe you are allowed to withdraw money from a 401k or IRA before age 59 1/2, by paying a penalty, along with the applicable tax. So people already have an option if they want to use it. I'm not in favor of waiving the penalty, if that's what Rand is proposing.

*) North Korea - very nasty, a lot of weapons, but they''re always going to be a proxy for China, and I think it's a mistake to evaluate them independently.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been over shadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

388 Not to be a JackStraw-booster, buuuut... he's the reason I come here. He lays out the facts via source documents, seldom gets caught-up in the MSM's narratives, and recalls details that are lost to most others.

I have given up on reading the comments here (which I used to find hilarious in their snark) due to a half-dozen eeyores who apparently never read any of the bazillion source documents that have come out over the last three years pertaining to FISA abuse and the FBI.

While I do agree that, when doing things correctly the government moves at the pace of a snail, and that is frustrating, it is simply the way the DOJ moves when building a case.

It is pretty clear that the squealing, narrative building, and concerned-trolling in the "press" is leading to something pretty devastating for the "deep state" at the FBI. While I can speculate what the report will say, the OIG report released last week contains clues that it will not be a white-wash.

Because people will not be arrested next Monday many will consider the OIG report to be a pass for the deep state - purposely forgetting that Horowitz is not the prosecutor, he's the investigator. If Durham and Barr do not indict, that is when people should be angry.

Until then? Read the reports. Form your own opinions. And stop according WaPo, the NYT, and CNN legitimate-source-status.

I don't say that much anymore, because it infuriates people. A lot of people also want revenge for the Stone, Manafort, and Flynn, but I would say all three of those were mistakes by the other side whcih exposed them and used up their credibility for no real purporse. And having said that, Manafort and Stone were convicted for stupid shit they had done in the past - it wasn't fair to single them out, but neither of them are people I woudl want to defend.

I believe Durham and Barr will come up with solid cases against people who have strong unambiguous evidence against them. It won't be everyone, but that's the best you could ever have realistically hoped for.

Same here, but I'm also fine with the agreement that an account is tax free and part of that contract is that it stays in for retirement and can be pulled out with a penalty to pay for stuff. It's dumb, but if that's how you want to do it go for it.

If you're going to allow it, allow everyone to pull out that same "student loan bailout" amount for whatever reason they want.

Honestly - the black folks I know were decades ahead of the affluent whites I know regarding the corruption of law enforcement.

Yep. I know more than a few people in meatspace that have acknowledged that they will say "not guilty" if they are ever called for federal jury duty and the FBI is involved in any way.

Reasonable doubt and all that.

421 "26
I do not understand how FBI thought or suspected trump was dirty (and
after obama and Hillary.tis to laugh) if there were legitimate fears
there would have been evidence of that? Instead of taking and planting
suspicions in the media to vet for a warrants?.



Is the country going to fall for that obvious play?

The left has two elements, as it pertains to this:

- True believers, that know this is all BS. They know we know it's BS, and they deliberately want to force us to bend the knee to rub it in, in classic commie style

- Miserable middle aged suburban subaru drivers with NPR bumper stickers that will believe literally anything the MSM tells them as long as it fits the orangemanbad narrative


It doesn't matter if the rest of us believe it or not, they're running with it anyways.

For anything more than that, one would need to
drop the pretense of legality completely and go straight to death
squads. That's why they happen in some countries.

424 Shouldn't we wait for the report to actually come out before we assert we know what will be in it? Lisa Page could also be asserting her innocence because the report finds the FBI acted criminally.

426 I am late coming to this thread and there is a new one posted, but I guess we hoped for a condemnation of these criminals from Horowitz, but no. Once again, what we all know is that these criminals will skate free and meantime Trump supporters like Flynn, Stone, et al will rot in prison for nothing. You or I would never see the light of day for a fraction of what they have done. It is clear for all to see that we have two systems of justice in this country. Thanks for letting me bloviate!.

There's a high probability the United States will see the emergence of death squads within a decade. People in the future, who had not experienced the beautiful thing this country once was, will not understand why that took so long.

432 @424

Totally agree. Gummy Whore, aka Lisa Page, is another one of the deep state players trying to set the narrative, likely because:

a) the report is going to be bad for her; and

b) she wants to get her faux-sympathetic narrative out there for potential jurors before any indictment.

And let's not forget to add that Sidney Powell has already submitted briefs stating that Gummy Whore made edits to Flynn's 302s and she stated she made nothing more than grammatical edits until confronted with her own texts when she testified in front of congress.

If you think about this, it would make total sense for her to do what she's doing if she knew faced an impending indictment.

434 " In this case, it's the reaction from AG William Barr who reportedly does not concur with Horowitz's findings that the FBI did have enough evidence/information to open up the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign."

Not sure why conservatives are getting so worked up. Do you not remember the Mueller report? WaPo and NYT were trying to prespin that and reporting all sorts of illegalities that were going to be revealed. Turned out, they completely lied and did not know what was in the report.

Why all of a sudden are conservatives getting their panties in a bunch about these anonymously sourced prespin stories? Same deal.

435 >>Not to be a JackStraw-booster, buuuut... he's the reason I come here. He lays out the facts via source documents, seldom gets caught-up in the MSM's narratives, and recalls details that are lost to most others.

I have given up on reading the comments here (which I used to find hilarious in their snark) due to a half-dozen eeyores who apparently never read any of the bazillion source documents that have come out over the last three years pertaining to FISA abuse and the FBI.

While I do agree that, when doing things correctly the government moves at the pace of a snail, and that is frustrating, it is simply the way the DOJ moves when building a case.

It is pretty clear that the squealing, narrative building, and concerned-trolling in the "press" is leading to something pretty devastating for the "deep state" at the FBI. While I can speculate what the report will say, the OIG report released last week contains clues that it will not be a white-wash.

Because people will not be arrested next Monday many will consider the OIG report to be a pass for the deep state - purposely forgetting that Horowitz is not the prosecutor, he's the investigator. If Durham and Barr do not indict, that is when people should be angry.

Until then? Read the reports. Form your own opinions. And stop according WaPo, the NYT, and CNN legitimate-source-status.
