This is a preview of what a Biden presidency will be like:
During the run-up to the election, his campaign called a “lid” before noon eight times in one month. The whole time he was basically shut in his basement, rarely venturing into the outside world.
The few times Biden did venture outside, he was hopped-up on stimulants and heavily reliant on teleprompters. None of that is going to change when he’s in office. It’ll probably get even worse.
He will be the President in Name Only, a figurehead occupying a ceremonial head of state role–similar to the Queen of England or the Emperor of Japan. The big differences will be the lack of actual royal blood, and the lack of universal reverence and admiration from the people. He will rarely make public appearances, and I doubt he will conduct much business with foreign heads of state when they visit.
The country will be ruled in his stead by a technocratic regency council. I wrote about this several months ago. It’ll likely be a triumvirate of Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, as well as many other career Swamp creatures (all unelected, of course) occupying posts on the White House staff, notably Ron Klain, who was just chosen to be Biden’s Chief of Staff.
This sort of thing has happened throughout history–for instance, when a king was too young to rule, or when a king becomes too old and incapacitated. The most notable example is probably King George III of England, who ruled from 1760 until his death in 1820, but by 1811 due to old age and failing health, both physical and mental, George III was no longer fit to rule, and so Parliament passed the Regency Acts which allowed Prince George to effectively rule England in his father’s stead. Prince Regent George ruled for nine years, until George III died, upon which point the Prince Regent became King George IV.
The difference is that America is not a monarchy, and Joe Biden will be entering office already unfit to govern.
So in the one election since 1960 with genuine concerns over “election crimes”–the ONE MOMENT in this guy’s life when he might actually be forced to do his job–he resigns in protest.
By the way: why does the DoJ even have a department of election crimes? I thought voter fraud was a myth. The media assured me it doesn’t exist…
Still: this is one of the most Deep State things I’ve ever seen. The guy in charge of “election crimes” is so determined not to find any of them in the most suspect election in modern history that he resigned his position.
The guy in charge of investigating election crimes doesn’t want to find any election crimes.
The US government is hilariously, overwhelmingly and spectacularly corrupt. It’s honestly kind of incredible to see how few f*cks the Uniparty gives about wearing their corruption on their sleeves.
This guy Pilger’s job exists for one reason (at least in theory): to prosecute election crimes and root out vote fraud. This could be Pilger’s shining moment if he were to simply do his job. He could be a national hero, the man to uncover massive election fraud and restore the integrity of our elections for future generations.
But no: he would rather resign than do his job.
There is perhaps no greater metaphor for the US government than a fox guarding the hen house.
I get that there are people who think this election was 100% legit. But I can’t handle them not even wanting to find out if the allegations of voter fraud are true. They have no interest in looking into the matter.
They don’t want to know if the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen. They are desperate not to know the truth.
That should tell you everything you need to know.
For this guy to be so vociferously opposed to even trying to get to the bottom of things, to the point of resigning rather than investigating it. I just–I really just have to laugh. It’s a cartoonish level of corruption.
The man whose job it is to prosecute election crimes resigns in protest after being asked to investigate the most credible accusations of election fraud in 60 years–big-time Third World vibes.
What has this “election crimes investigator” guy been doing all these years? I’m sure he’s been spending every waking moment investigating possible TRUMP-RUSSIA COLLUSION.
Because to the Swamp, the only election crime that has happened in their eyes was Trump winning in 2016.
I’m trying to figure out the angle here. Is Wray trying to cover his ass and get on Trump’s good side after the news got out that the FBI sat on the Hunter Biden laptop all throughout the phony impeachment?
This means Biden has to be impeached, right? Because that’s how the media treated Trump when the Russians supposedly “interfered” on his behalf.
If Biden is elected (which I don’t think he will be, but still), then does he have to undergo three-plus years of non-stop media hyperventilating about how he’s in thrall to Iran? Will he be subject to endless investigations and have his whole life turned upside down, like what happened with Trump?
Does this come as a suprise to anyone, though? Iran obviously prefers Biden to Trump. Trump was the one who ripped up the Iran deal and imposed massive, crippling sanctions on Iran. Iran would love to see Biden in the White House.
On the other hand, from the very start of all the RUSSIAN COLLUSION! nonsense, the one thing that undermined it all was the lack of any evidence that Russia preferred Trump to Hillary in 2016. It has never made any sense that Russia would prefer the guy whose motto was “AMERICA FIRST” and was promising to turn America into the world’s biggest oil producer, a move that would directly harm the oil-dependent nation of Russia.
But with Biden, it’s obvious that the Iranians are pulling for him big-time.
So what were the Iranian emails? Apparently they pretended to be the Proud Boys:
I am not sure, exactly, how this was meant to help Biden. Threatening people with violence if they don’t vote for Trump somehow helps Biden? I mean, I guess had the FBI not stepped in and publicly declared these emails to be fake and coming from Iran, this would have been a golden opportunity for the media to seize on them and scream “RIGHT WING EXTREMISM!” and blame Trump for it. I guess that’s how they would help Biden.
But the people that actually received the emails would not be more likely to vote Biden. I’m sure most people ignored the emails as spam, but no doubt there were some people that took them seriously and got scared. If anything, I could see the emails compelling a small number of Biden voters to stay home and not vote out of fear.
Just think of it logically: if you were trying to help Biden, then why would you send emails to his supporters threatening them with violence if they don’t vote for Trump?
The thing is, there have been almost identical letters sent to Trump supporters within the past few weeks. This image has been making the rounds online:
It’s basically the same exact thing, except for Trump supporters. I wonder why the FBI didn’t mention these.
And they also, as far as I can tell, didn’t reveal how many of those threatening emails have been sent out so far.
One of the dumbest terms to enter the American political discourse following the 2016 election–aside from “collusion”–was “election meddling.” For one, it assumes that a foreign nation can actually swing one of our elections. And second, it implies that 2016 was the first time it had ever happened in US history–which it was most certainly not.
Now, all the idiots who believe what they see on cable news are convinced that Russia has the power to choose the American President. The fact that people believe this “election meddling” lie has undermined the public’s confidence in the democratic process. No one has done more to damage the integrity of our elections than the unholy trinity of the media, Democratic politicians and deep staters that started the “election meddling” narrative.
Even NPR’s “FACT CHECK” had to admit that Russia’s so-called “election meddling” in 2016 amounted to little more than $160k spent on Facebook ads and making some posts on social media. NPR tried to hype it up by saying that “as many as 126 million people” may have seen the Russian-produced content–as if 99% of those 126 million people didn’t scroll right on by without a second thought.
But there was no meddling with voting machines or voter fraud. None. And even if they did, there’s no way they’d be able to do enough to offset all the vote fraud committed by the Democrats.
Final thought: the biggest thing to come from the FBI press conference is not what they said, but what they didn’t say:
We are all aware of this week’s NY Post’s story which exposed Hunter Biden’s laptop and all the incriminating stuff contained on it.
But I missed this letter the House Republicans sent to FBI Director Chris Wray, which asks him if the FBI was in possession of this laptop during the Trump Impeachment trial, because if so this would have contained a massive amount of evidence not only incriminating the Bidens, but completely justifying Trump’s attempt to investigate the Bidens for corrupt foreign dealings.
If the FBI was in possession of this laptop in December 2019, then it means the FBI sat on evidence that would have completely exonerated Trump in the impeachment trial.
The letter was written after the New York Post published emailssuggesting that Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2015 — one year before his father allegedly pressured the country’s government to fire a prosecutor who had launched an investigation into the company.
The Post reported that the FBI was in possession of the laptop on which the emails were found in December 2019 — right in the middle of the impeachment of President Trump over remarks he made to the Ukrainian president about Biden’s conduct in the country.
Yesterday, Lee Smith, the excellent reporter who has been all over the Spygate/Obamagate/Russiagate hoax since back in 2017, went on Lou Dobbs and said that yes, the FBI did have Hunter’s laptop in December 2019, and that yes, they did deliberately sit on the evidence during the impeachment trial. I highly recommend watching this brief clip:
So to recap:
Bidens: completely let off the hook for their corrupt dealings in Ukraine.
Trump: impeached for trying to investigate the Bidens’ corrupt dealings in Ukraine.
FBI: hid the evidence of the Bidens’ corrupt dealings in Ukraine while the Democrats were impeaching Trump.
As if it weren’t clear enough by now, the FBI is the Democratic Party’s Secret Police–an American KGB.
Smith points out that the New York Times, as early as 2015, was reporting on the Bidens’ shady business in the Ukraine, and that the Times was tipped off to this story by the Hillary Clinton campaign, which was hoping to keep Biden out of the Democratic primaries.
Smith says that Trump is surrounded by people, like FBI Director Chris Wray, who are working against not only Trump, but the American people.
Wray is as swampy as it gets. He needs to be fired immediately and indicted.
It’s also worth noting that we would probably have never heard of Hunter Biden’s laptop if not for the courageous efforts of a man named John Paul Isaac, the owner of the Delaware computer repair shop that handled the laptop. In an interview, Isaac said he was alarmed by what he saw on the laptop and decided to hand it over to both the FBI and Rudy Giuliani–but not before making copies of the hard drive and giving it to a friend:
John Paul Isaac, the owner of a Mac computer repair store in Delaware who came into possession of an abandoned laptop previously owned by Hunter, spoke to the media for nearly an hour, and suggested there is far more content than what the Post published, including illegal content, and said that he fears for his life because of the content on the hard drive. Isaac also hinted that the FBI is covering up the contents on the laptop as a political favor to the Biden family, and claimed that the FBI warned him not to go public with the information in his possession.
At one point in the interview, Isaac explained that during his career as a computer repair professional, he once encountered child porn when repairing a man’s computer and immediately called the police. He compared that to this incident, and said that while he did not see child porn on Hunter’s computer, he saw illegal materials and discussions of illegal activities that made him believe his “life would be in danger.”
When asked whether a third copy of the materials exist, other than the copy in possession of the FBI and the copy in possession of Giuliani and at least partially by the Post, Isaac said that he created a third copy and gave it to a trusted friend as a safety precaution “for fear that if something bad happened to me, I gave the drive to somebody who would hopefully leverage it.” He went on to state that this third copy no longer exists.
Yeah, sure. Clearly this man is scared for his life. Look what he said about his dealings with the FBI:
At one point, Isaac claimed the FBI agents he spoke to suggested he should not discuss the contents of Hunter’s laptop publicly.
“They told me that nothing ever happens to people who don’t talk, the FBI, and that made me scared, because that’s not something I would expect the highest branch of,” said Isaac, before apparently realizing the magnitude of his statement. “Don’t, don’t — It was more along the lines of, in our experiences when stuff like this happens nothing ever bad happens to people that keep quiet,” he added.
As the interview went on, and Isaac was finally asked for his feelings about Giuliani giving the story to the Post, Isaac said he had no emotions and said it was preferable to an assassination, making references to the deaths of Seth Rich, a DNC employee who some believed had a role in the leak or hack of the DNC email servers, and Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile hedge fund manager who partied with British royals, the Clinton family, and Bill Gates, among others.
“I have no opinion on the matter. I mean, I prefer this outcome as opposed to getting shot jogging in the morning,” said Isaac, earning the scorn of a reporter who insisted the “conspiracy” that Rich’s murder had anything to do with the leaked or hacked emails was “debunked.”
“Reporters” are the scum of the earth. However low your opinion of the media is, it’s not nearly low enough.
“Muhhh conspiracies!” they whined at a man who in one single action displayed more bravery and patriotism than all of them have in their entire lives combined.
Singer Moby claimed his friends in the CIA asked him to spread the word that President Trump has ties to Russia because he has a larger social media following than the government agency.
Moby, whose birth name is Richard Melville Hall, told Kentucky radio station WFPK in an interview this week that he has friends in the CIA who asked him for his help.
The subject came up after the host, Kyle Meredith, asked the electronic singer about his cryptic Facebook post he wrote in 2017. The post stated that after he spent time with friends who “work in D.C.” he could “accurately post” that the Fusion GPS Dossier was “100% real. He’s being blackmailed by the Russian government.” The post also claimed Trump has colluded “with the Russian government, and has been since day one,” wants to go to war and there are “right-wing plans to get rid of Trump.”
Moby said he wrote the post because his “friends” he claimed are “active and former CIA agents” asked him to “pass on some information.”
“They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States,’” he told Meredith. “So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that sort of put it out there.’”
First of all, what an incredibly lame and pathetic attempt to topple the President.
Second, why is a singer like Moby in regular contact with the CIA? How many other singers and actors and celebs are in regular contact with the CIA? How much of a hand does the CIA have in the music and film industries? This is concerning stuff.
It’s become blindingly obvious that the Deep State, the Swamp, Hollywood, the Media, Fortune 500, Big Tech–they’re all part of the same beast.
I don’t know how they gained access to the Russian intelligence. Was it due to sharing? That’s doubtful. Was it due to our own spying efforts?
How did the Russians obtain such information about Hillary Clinton? Did they have someone embedded in her campaign? Was Hillary actively coordinating with the Russians?
More likely, it was because the Russians simply had access to all her emails. You know, because she kept them on a janky-ass unprotected server in her basement. Every foreign intelligence agency on the planet probably had access to her emails.
So the Clinton campaign started the Trump Russia smear to distract from the fact that Hillary was carelessly mishandling classified intelligence.
As the letter says, it’s unclear whether the Russian report was actually accurate. It may have been, as the letter says, “an exaggeration or fabrication.”
However, the CIA took it seriously enough to brief the President on it. So take that for what you will.
Everyone mentioned in this letter–Obama, Brennan, Comey, Strozk–knew that the Trump Russia thing was a hoax the whole time, and they still treated it like it was a real story.
Instead of going after Clinton for her attempt to Spread Misinformation about Trump, the Obama administration actively participated in the effort.
That’s the bottom line here: instead of putting the kibosh on Hillary’s evil scheme, the Obama people decided to help them with it.
Former CIA Director John Brennan personally edited a crucial section of the intelligence report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and assigned a political ally to take a lead role in writing it after career analysts disputed Brennan’s take that Russian leader Vladimir Putin intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump clinch the White House, according to two senior U.S. intelligence officials who have seen classified materials detailing Brennan’s role in drafting the document.
The explosive conclusion Brennan inserted into the report was used to help justify continuing the Trump-Russia “collusion” investigation, which had been launched by the FBI in 2016. It was picked up after the election by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who in the end found no proof that Trump or his campaign conspired with Moscow.
The Obama administration publicly released a declassified version of the report — known as the “Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent Elections (ICA)” — just two weeks before Trump took office, casting a cloud of suspicion over his presidency. Democrats and national media have cited the report to suggest Russia influenced the 2016 outcome and warn that Putin is likely meddling again to reelect Trump.
The ICA is a key focus of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing investigation into the origins of the “collusion” probe. He wants to know if the intelligence findings were juiced for political purposes.
RealClearInvestigations has learned that one of the CIA operatives who helped Brennan draft the ICA, Andrea Kendall-Taylor, financially supported Hillary Clinton during the campaign and is a close colleague of Eric Ciaramella, identified last year by RCI as the Democratic national security “whistleblower” whose complaint led to Trump’s impeachment, ending in Senate acquittal in January.
Major conflicts of interest here.
The two officials said Brennan, who openly supported Clinton during the campaign, excluded conflicting evidence about Putin’s motives from the report, despite objections from some intelligence analysts who argued Putin counted on Clinton winning the election and viewed Trump as a “wild card.”
The dissenting analysts found that Moscow preferred Clinton because it judged she would work with its leaders, whereas it worried Trump would be too unpredictable. As secretary of state, Clinton tried to “reset” relations with Moscow to move them to a more positive and cooperative stage, while Trump campaigned on expanding the U.S. military, which Moscow perceived as a threat.
These same analysts argued the Kremlin was generally trying to sow discord and disrupt the American democratic process during the 2016 election cycle. They also noted that Russia tried to interfere in the 2008 and 2012 races, many years before Trump threw his hat in the ring.
“They complained Brennan took a thesis [that Putin supported Trump] and decided he was going to ignore dissenting data and exaggerate the importance of that conclusion, even though they said it didn’t have any real substance behind it,” said a senior U.S intelligence official who participated in a 2018 review of the spycraft behind the assessment, which President Obama ordered after the 2016 election.
But of course, Brennan had an election to overturn on behalf of the Beltway Uniparty.
Anyone following this story from day one knew it was obviously BS that Putin preferred Donald “America First” Trump over Hillary Clinton, the swamp creature par excellence who had repeatedly cozied up to foreign countries in exchange for cash. America’s ruling class of the past 30 years–which Clinton is an inner-circle member of–has continually sold out America and pursued policies which were good for the Ruling Class’s collective net worth, but terrible for the American people themselves.
Donald Trump was the candidate in 2016 promising to restore America’s place in the world, unleash American oil drilling and energy production (something that directly harms Russia’s oil-dependent economy) and renegotiate all of our trade agreements to be more in our favor.
I’ll put it in even simpler terms, who do you think our foreign rivals would support for President: a globalist or a nationalist?
Of course Russia preferred Hillary. They would be able to continue taking advantage of America with Hillary in office, because Hillary doesn’t care about America.
But John Brennan had a narrative to push, so he did.
“WASHINGTON — A former F.B.I. lawyer intends to plead guilty after he was charged with falsifying a document as part of a deal with prosecutors conducting their own criminal inquiry of the Russia investigation, according his lawyer and court documents made public on Friday.
The lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, 38, who was assigned to the Russia investigation, plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency. Mr. Clinesmith’s lawyer said he made a mistake while trying to clarify facts for a colleague.
Right off the bat: investigators “relied on” this altered email to seek renewed court permission to wiretap Carter Page. They’re talking about the FISA warrants, but they’re trying to obfuscate that fact. Also, when NYT uses the term “Russia investigation,” what they really mean is that Clinesmith was part of the Mueller investigation team. There’s a lot of obfuscation in this NYT article, actually.
Not only that, but look at the NYT sub-headline which is obviously trying to spin this in favor of the Obama Deep State and as a setback for Trump:
I have more respect for the leftists who admit they think the FBI was right tobe engaged in an anti-Trump conspiracy; the ones who want to destroy Trump by any means necessary. At least they’re honest. But the holier-than-thou “Respectable Journalist”-types who still sit here and pretend this was all on the up-and-up; it’s some of the most flagrant gaslighting we’ve ever seen.
Second point about Clinesmith: I find it difficult to believe an FBI lawyer–as in someone who is an expert on the law–could claim negligence here. He “didn’t know” it was wrong to retroactively alter an email that FBI investigators later brought before the FISA court to seek permission to wiretap a former Trump campaign staffer?
In layman’s terms, what Clinesmith did is known as “fabricating evidence.” I guess Clinesmith was asleep for that lesson in law school.
On the other hand, it’s very hard to prove intent. And Clinesmith and his lawyer obviously know that. So of course he’s going to pretend to be a dummy.
HOWEVER, unfortunately for Mr. Clinesmith, his text messages to his FBI colleagues from after the 2016 election were made public long ago, and so we know quite a bit about his personal feelings about Trump:
“The inspector general’s report focuses on instant messages that the attorney exchanged with a colleague about the Clinton and Russia probes.
“I am numb,” the attorney wrote on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after President Trump’s election.
“I am so stressed about what I could have done differently,” the lawyer continued, apparently referring to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe.
The attorney’s messages show that he was distressed at the FBI’s decision in October 2016 to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Democrats have claimed that decision hurt Clinton at the polls.
The FBI lawyer also suggested that he would work to resist the Trump administration.
“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.
“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.
This guy does not deserve the benefit of the doubt or anything close to it. None of them do. Hell, Comey’s tweets alone since he got fired would suffice as proof of his vehement anti-Trump agenda.
These guys are all guilty as sin. And everybody knows it.
All that said, I do not have high hopes for the Durham investigation. I think it’s extremely foolish to get your hopes up that Obama, Brennan, Comey and the rest are going to jail. When has anything like that ever happened in this country? When has any inner-circle member of the Elite ever been anywhere close to facing any sort of accountability whatsoever? Maybe Clinton during his impeachment. Maybe. But he still ultimately got away scot-free.
The more likely way this plays out is that we get a few more arrests of scapegoats and fall-guys–names only the hardest of hardcore political news-junkies and Twitter addicts will recognize–and that’s it. The biggest name will probably be Andrew McCabe, but I’m sure he’ll ultimately skate. There will be no “broad, anti-Trump conspiracy” uncovered, there will be no cleaning house at the FBI or the DoJ.
There will be no reforms to ensure FBI power is never abused like this again.
I hate to rain on the parade but face it: the DoJ and FBI are still to this day stocked with Obama Loyalists and Deep Staters and fall guys who are determined to make sure Durham’s investigation goes nowhere. Even assuming Durham is the picture of integrity and patriotism, the odds are still stacked heavily against him.
And that’s not to mention the fact that if Durham goes after the Big Fish like Obama, Biden, Rice, Brennan and Comey, the media will go into full Defend Obama Phalanx Mode. Is Durham willing to invoke the full wrath of the media by actually going after the Dons and Capos of the Deep State Mafia? There is nothing the media won’t do to ruin Durham’s reputation and life. They’ll fabricate a sexual assault accusation against him. They’ll accuse him of RACISM! They’ll send Antifa goons to his house to bully and intimidate his family. They’ll bring on Very Serious Analysts and talk about how this is Election Meddling and “playing politics” (as if everything they did to Trump for the past five years wasn’t).
They will come after him with everything they’ve got. Every dirty trick will be deployed. If you thought Kavanaugh was bad, this will make that look like a Dean Martin roast.
We now finally have evidence linking Obama to the Spygate scandal:
“Shocking”? I don’t know, Senator. I’ve been expecting this for years.
Anyone who has been following this thing closely since the beginning has known that Obama knew the whole time what was going on. But now we have some proof, in the form of Peter Strzok’s hand-written memos about the Flynn ambush.
Not only that, but we have Biden being involved, too. Add another scandal to the list along with Ukraine.
Here is a photo of the hand-written Strzok note. It’s kind of tough to make out:
The third line down says “VP: ‘Logan Act'” as in it was Biden who suggested using the Logan Act as a pretense to go after Flynn.
“P” has got to mean President, as in President Obama.
“D” means FBI Director James Comey. According to Strzok’s notes, Comey said “Flynn –> Kislyak [Russian Ambassador] calls but appear legit.”
I wish I could transcribe more of it but his handwriting is hard to read.
Obama is also quoted as saying, “Make sure you look at things + have the right people on it.” With, of course, “it” meaning the Flynn “investigation.”
Is this the bombshell we’ve been waiting for? No, I don’t think so. There’s still more that should and hopefully will come out.
I want ’em all in cuffs. Obama, Biden, Hillary, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Rice, Strzok, Samantha Power, Sally Yates. All of ’em.
