US CENTCOM Commander: There Isn't Proof of the Democrat-Media Conspiracy's Info Op Last Month About Russians Paying Bounties to the Taliban to Kill Americans;
Claim Comes from the CIA, Who Are "Very Emotional" About the Argument

I'm not kidding. I know people sometimes say these things off-handedly, but the CIA has been turned inside-out into an agency whose goal is not to defend America but to subvert and defeat it.

It must be disbanded.

Enough of these government-paid insurrectionists.

The commander of U.S. Central Command, Gen. Frank McKenzie, said Monday that after two months of looking into a widely reported claim that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban for the killing of U.S. troops still has not been verified...

There's a bit more in the story including the fact that it's apparently the CIA that is largely convinced this happened or is happening. Gen. McKenzie, without naming anyone in particular, said the people involved in the ongoing argument over this are "very emotional" but that he can't afford to be. That makes sense because obviously if this were confirmed then the U.S. would have no choice but to urge the president to act.

But "All 17 Intelligence agencies" agree with the CIA's assessment, right?

Wrong:


The hesitation over this story isn't solely a matter of the military not being convinced of what the intel agencies are saying. Previous reporting from the Wall Street Journal stated that the NSA had "strongly dissented" from other intel agencies about the bounties claim. So even within the intel community there has been some doubt about this.

The fact that the CIA leaked this -- to Adam Schiff, no less! -- is proof that they must be disbanded.

In previous years, under previous presidents, the intelligence community was very careful about leaking claims like this.

Claims like this put the president in an impossible bind: either he can argue on behalf of Russia's innocence, or he can launch a nuclear attack on Russia.

There's really no middle path here. If Russia is killing US troops, we go to war.

So usually these things were handled secretly. Russia would be punished, but not in some high-profile way that would stir the public into demanding a nuclear retaliation on Russia.

But that's not how the Obama-ized CIA rolls, now. Now, each and every unverified suspicion they have, each bit of Hot Goss collected from Igor "Iggy" Danchenko's alcoholic friends at his local DC rum mill, is fit for immediate leaking to Adam Fucking Schiff and the whole of the GPSFusion-paid Black Ops Press.

Why, it's almost as if elements of the Deep State, with a leadership cadre infiltrated into the highest positions of the CIA, are attempting a "color revolution" coup d'etat against their own (supposed) country.

This rolling campaign of anti-police street violence is killing Bidenís bid for the presidency -- just look at private polling in crucial swing states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where law and order has become a decisive issue.

So why don't Democratic leaders do more to condemn the violence and call for calm?

To understand their inaction, you need to step back and see street violence as one element of a coordinated "playbook" to dislodge President Trump, regardless of the outcome of the election.

This is the thesis of political theorist Dr. Darren Beattie, a former Duke University professor and White House official.

The playbook is straight from the strategies the US government has deployed in so-called "Color Revolutions" in Eastern European countries, such as Ukraine or Belarus, to remove "authoritarian" leaders deemed hostile to American interests.

In a series of articles at Revolver.news, Beattie's thesis provides a compelling comparison between Deep State efforts to remove President Trump and techniques used by the State Department, covert agencies and allied NGOs to influence, or overturn, elections in foreign countries.

BLM-Antifaís "mostly peaceful protests" are America's version of Ukraine's Orange Revolution, where civil unrest was fomented on the streets to oust a Kremlin-backed authoritarian.

In an interview, Beattie noted "strong parallels" between "color revolutions" overseas and the "sustained coordinated coup against Trump" -- from the Russia collusion hoax to his impeachment over Ukraine.

"The very same regime change professionals Ö assigned to overthrow 'authoritarians' in Eastern Europe are the ones running this operation against Trump. It is the same playbook run by the same people."

The Color Revolution playbook starts by creating the narrative of an authoritarian, illegitimate leader. Then you foment unrest on the streets, aimed at provoking an authoritarian crackdown that can be used to mobilize further unrest.

You undermine people's faith in the election process, setting up a contested outcome that turns into street fighting.

At the same time, you wage relentless "lawfare" to contest ballots. Ultimately the military may be called upon to dislodge the incumbent.

Sound familiar?

As the article notes, the Establishment "Transition Integrity Group," featuring Jon Podesta and Bill Kristol, actually wargamed out scenarios for contesting a real, inarguable Trump win, including the whole west coast seceding unless the coup they demanded was allowed to run to completion.

Portland Antifa is still very upset over the fact that armed locals set up checkpoints to block access to the small towns near Portland evacuated due to fire, so outsiders couldn't loot and commit arson. These checkpoints were tolerated by the cops (the cops have since taken over the checkpoints).

It may be dawning on them that if Oregon Democrats try to secede, most of Oregon will immediately become a no-go zone for the traitors.

The last time we saw this level of idiotic Beltway sabotage effort was ..... during Dubya's time (ya know the "Deep State" guy). Starting immediately after 9/11 - culminating with the absurd NIE on Iranian nuclear activities (uh - in case you missed it - they gave up their nuclear program back then).

OMG! War against an Arab state!!! OMG!! It will destabilize the entire region!!! Eleventy!!! It's unthinkable (like moving the embassy to Jerusalem)!!! Much the same was seen against his father, who did all kinds of unthinkable things that would destroy the region, like stationing US troops in the Kingdom. Doom!!!

They don't want you to be in control, they want despotism and will use every tactic, method and bit of leverage to ensure you are powerless. I don't think the average person understands just how serious and corrupt they are. Just like the FBI has discarded any semblance of impartiality and loyalty to our country, so goes most of the agency.

For over half a century it did stellar work spying on and outwitting the communists.

AND THEN GODDAMN BARACK OBAMA APPOINTED A GODDAMN SELF_CONFESSED COMMUNIST TO HEAD THE CIA, and guess what happened? The entire agency was flipped to be PRO-communist.

Whoda think it?

I'm speaking, of course, of John Brennan, Obama's CIA Director. He admitted to being a communist in the '70s, and then wink-wink nudge-nudge implied that he had never switched back from being a communist.

Bongino is talking about this Red State article:


The Adverse Effects of Obama's Executive Order 13583 and the Purge of Generals and Admirals Are Now Obvious


The results from these actions are now crystal clear. Retired Obama-era flag and general officers (FOGO), in direct violation of Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, have publicly criticized President Trump and even called him a threat to US national security, as noted here and here. Several may even be preparing for a military coup, as reported in this shocking video from Col Richard H. Black, JAG Corps, USA (retd), a former head of the Army's Criminal Law Division:



While these public statements by retired Obama FOGOs are unprecedented and reflect Obama's successful politicization of the upper ranks of the military, perhaps even more disturbing are the effects of EO 13583. Media targeted at military service personnel are replete with stories focused on critical race theory, racial injustice, and other issues aligned with that Executive Order.

Yeah, yeah - Orange man bad. Possibly this is related to Trump about to blow the whistle on Obama's interference with the political process - but I doubt THAT too.

What are these people so SCARED of Trump that they're pulling these kind of shenanigans?

I think that with a few exceptions, I could count them off on one hand, most every agency should have to be reauthorized after some period. But before reauthorization they would be completely disbanded. The period, the method of build-up, and how they would ramp down to being disbanded would have to be written into the bill instating or reauthorizing them.

243 There's really no middle path here. If Russia is killing US troops, we go to war.

Oh, I think there is room to maneuver here, IF this is true. The Rooskies manned the North Viet Nam air defense systems for a long while, Rooskie pilots flew a lot of missions against us, and on the Son Tey raid to rescue POWs, a lot of "non-asians" were killed.
There are far more subtle ways for retribution short of mushroom clouds.

As for the Intel Agencies...ever since 1947, it has always been about budgets and rice bowls. It will always be so. It is also an issue of trust. How much value would the navy put in an agent report of a new Russian sub putting to sea if the source was an Army agent? And how much value would they put on that source's life if some admiral felt the need to talk of the report in unsecure areas?

There needs to be a house cleaning, but it needs to be done by outside sources. How to do that? That is the key.

Gabriell Kolko, a lelftist, wrote books about this.

He looked at Federal regulatory agencies, and concluded that the first generation of regulators were dynamic people who Wanted To Make A Difference, the second generation still wanted to do something, and the third and succeeding generations was just timeservers.

I've personally seen this play out in a number of government agencies.

They're just trying to destroy the legitimacy of the government. What to replace it with comes later. For now, it's you can have THIS, or you can have Medicare for All, Green New Deal, free college, reparations, Section 8 housing in the suburbs, etc.

252 Sorry, but even if it were true, I don't see Russia paying bounties to the Taliban for killing Americans as that big a big deal. It wouldn't surprise me at all, but we armed the Taliban (or its predecessor) to kill Russians. There's a lot of daylight between killing people yourself and getting a proxy to do it.

255 They won't take the presidency in four years. Another term is going to expose the breadth of this op. It will destroy Democrats and they know it. That's why they are pulling out all the stops to undermine this election and try to ensure Trump is ineffective.

Electorally, Trump is building a good Republican coalition that can continue to attract popular support and more voters over time. You won't get Trump again, he's one off a kind. What you will get is one of the many talented leaders being brought into the coalition by Trump. You will probably even get a woman or minority Republican president or VP. The talent coming in is that deep.

Democrats have a lot to lose with this election.

John Brennan was allowed in, even after he disclosed he had voted for the communist party candidate for President in the election JUST PRIOR to joining the CIA.

And never disavowed his vote from way back when. And then he rose all the way to the top.

348 Here's a little exercise in depressive paranoiac thinking regarding what's really going on along the Pacific coast.

As we all know, conditions (social, political, et al.) have been resulting in a large scale exodus from California. Doubtless this is extending to Washington and Oregon as well at this stage, especially with the "wildfires" started in the region.

It is also a known fact that wealthy Chinese have been buying up properties in those areas for some time. The general consensus is that it is a fallback "bug out" contingency for falling-outs with the CCP.

I present an alternative: The Pacific coastal states are, instead, effectively being colonized by the PRC. It is meant to be the beachhead for dominance of North America, either as part of a Globalist/CCP/Deep State controlled government, or...

As a Chinese-controlled breakaway state. One that invites Chinese forces in to protect it from the "illegitimate government" to the East, or just to "protect Chinese interests and citizens" in the region.

Don't know and can't say for sure that's what's happening, but it's about as credible a scenario as any.

378 Just for schiffs and giggles I looked up Adam Schiff's background. Of course he has never held a real job in his life, becoming a lawyer and going to work for the government on day one, and has been in the government ever since. He never served in the military either, in fact, has no intelligence experience either. So why he's the head of the House Intelligence Committee I have no idea. Except that he seems to be willing to fight dirty on behalf of his party (seems to be a leading criterion for any Democrat).

The CIA was renowned for only hiring Ivy Leaguers for many years. Not sure if they sitll do. But that helps explain a lot.

379 For far too long, the CIA has recruited from the "top schools" to obtain their "top men". Recruiting almost exclusively from the Ivy league is a huge error in judgement. The CIA also recruited Mormons too heavily IMO.

AUS "detente" with Russia would be more useful than China and Russia getting more friendly ... and Russia has more Western type citizenry/economy (mostly?) than Eastern. idk how all those pieces interact, but Russia/Iran or Russia/Turkey are pieces of a puzzle to consider ... and Middle East peace benefits everyone, actually ... except the terror regimes' current tyrants and the US grifters getting rich by selling American influence.

Universities are generally foooked, they just don't realize it yet.

The k-12 problem can only be fixed when people like us start filling school boards. We have to fight the corruption at that level.

IIANM, California is a net importer of power. So yeah -- shut it down. Shut it down NOW (Jon Taffer of Bar Rescue voice).
While you are at it, shut the water off too. That takes care of the LA Basin.

Do this when the snows come so the mountain roads become impassable shutting down commerce. No plowing the roads, and trigger some avalanches.

My thought on that is to run as a normal run-of-the-mill, woke-ass lefty. Get elected, then throw away the platform and obstruct all further leftward progress and start pushing for sanity. Rinse and repeat enough times, and it might work. But running as a sane person won't get you seated - the school boards would never permit that.

Not quite the same. The police provide a necessary domestic peacekeeping function. Internationally, our military forces provide a similar function for us. I can think of no function that the CIA serves that could not be done equally well if it was fused back in with Military Intelligence. There is no reason for a separate competing agency, especially one that has gotten every single major international trend and event wrong for the last 40 years.

That's exactly what a color revolution is all about. Again, look closely at the Maidan Revolution in 2014 in Ukraine. You will see the parallels to what is happening here in real time.

They don't care about winning the vote. They care about making the vote seem illegitimate so they can replace it with something they want after the election.

The reason the CIA isn't going after Soros is because they are partners. They ran the coup in Ukraine along with the CIA and others as needed.
