And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about. —Haruki Murakami
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper. Aristotle
Congressman Louie Gohmert wrote an expose of Mueller, entitled, Robert Mueller Unmasked and he said this, “Robert Mueller has a long and sordid history of illicitly targeting innocent people. His many actions are a stain upon the legacy of American jurisprudence. He lacks the judgment and credibility to lead the prosecution of anyone. I do not make these statements lightly. Each time I prepared to question Mueller during Congressional hearings, the more concerned I became about his ethics and behavior.”
Death by a Thousand Cuts
We’ve all heard about this form of Chinese torture which was banned in 1905. Today this idiom refers to many small bad things happening, none of which are fatal in themselves, but which add up to a slow and painful demise.
I cannot name a single man or politician who could withstand the onslaught of hatred and vilification Trump has had to endure at the hands of these demonic and psychotic socialists. An ordinary man would have collapsed long ago under the weight of this evil. And yet we take it for granted that our President will bat a thousand for us every day and persist in being more energetic and more courageous than we could ever be in a million years. We criticize him for his imperfections and we are not grateful enough that he is fighting on our behalf. Outwardly, Donald Trump would appear to be base metal, but he is gold. He deserves our respect. Truly the foolishness of God is wiser than men. (I Corinthians 1:25) Our President is the left’s target.
Hyenas in a pack will attack a lion in order to take him down. One on one, they cannot do it, it takes the entire pack. But if the male lion will attack the head of the hyenas, it throws their entire pack into disarray.
It’s time for the enemies of our duly elected President to be taken down, and Trump needs to do it. He has been strong in telling our European allies that America will no longer carry the financial burdens of NATO. He has also been unwavering in demanding fair trade rather than free trade where America suffers billions in deficits.
The buck stops with our President. It is time he puts an end to the corruption and the partisan hacks in the DOJ and everywhere else in his administration. He is in charge, he has the authority to do so. I don’t care that his advisors are telling him not to fire anyone because it will play into his critics’ hands as obstruction of justice. He has to act or he will end up with a pack of hyenas devouring him.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced at last Monday’s briefing that President Trump is “exploring” the revocation of security clearances for former high-level intelligence officials John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper and Michael Hayden, as well as Susan Rice and Andrew McCabe. Susan Rice, Obama’s former National Security Adviser (NSA) was allowed by Trump’s former NSA, H.R. McMaster, to keep her security clearance. None of these people should have access to our national secrets while writing books and profiting from their irresponsible, false claims about our president.
Our much absent Attorney General Sessions has informed the public that FBI agent Peter Strzok has lost his security clearance. About time! The rest of them should too. Why haven’t you done this AG Sessions?
Mr. President, no more exploring…do it! It is customary for previous administration members to retain their security clearances for a period of time in order to avail the new administration with information. However, Fox’s Gregg Jarrett said that every Obama employee should have only kept their clearance for a month, and if they were needed again, they could get a temporary clearance. I personally do not believe any of the previous Obama employees should be kept. Not a damned one of them is trustworthy, just like 80 percent of the DOJ.
FBI Used Steele Dossier for FISA
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant is out and what Fox hosts have previously reported has been proven factual. The Trump campaign was spied on by Obama’s Justice Department using lies bought and paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton to obtain a FISA warrant against Trump campaign associate Carter Page. All of this was done in order to rig the election for Hillary.
Bruce Ohr is a former United States associate deputy attorney general and former director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. Ohr is known for his contact with Christopher Steele, who authored the Trump–Russia dossier, which was commissioned by Fusion GPS, where Ohr’s wife worked. Ohr said that Christopher Steele would do anything to keep Donald Trump from being president.
Former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, and former Attorney General Sally Yates were all required to sign off on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) warrant application before it was reviewed and ultimately approved. Rosenstein admitted under questioning by Congressman Gohmert that he doesn’t need to read the warrants.
The Clinton dirty dossier was the key piece of evidence used in four FISA applications and created by former foreign spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt and lies on Donald Trump. Despite the dossier being unverifiable and undocumented, it was passed to the public and FISA courts as real evidence by top DOJ/FBI officials. All of this was done at the height of the 2016 election. It was done to turn the full force of the government against Trump and those who support him, and it was done after all of these top DOJ/FBI officials rigged everything to save Hillary Clinton from warranted indictments.
We need all 589 pages of FISA documents unredacted and exposed. The President says he will remain uninvolved for now and won’t declassify the FISA documents the House is requesting .
On 25 August 18, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Sean Hannity’s show said, “We all know that Hillary was guilty of obstruction and violating the espionage act and the fix was in and it was rigged. We have learned about the FISA warrants and that they were never verified or corroborated and the FBI purposely withheld information from the judges on four occasions. But now we have an assault on the attorney/client privilege by Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen.” This can ricochet throughout the nation and destroy privacy between attorney and client. What Michael Cohen is doing is tantamount to destroying decades of Constitutional protections.
Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said that if President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen leaked the tape of his private conversation with Trump when that conversation was still subject to attorney-client privilege, he could be in trouble. And was it even legal to record their conversation without Trump’s permission? Cohen may well be looking at eventual disbarment.
Destroying Trump’s Supporters
In order to dissuade anymore “Trumps” from running for office, those who supported him are being destroyed and vilified. The entire Deep State DOJ/FBI and Robert Mueller’s modus operandi tactics are responsible. Financial destruction and even imprisonment without ever being convicted of a crime is how Mueller operates.
No universal definition exists for cruel and unusual punishment, but any punishment that is clearly inhumane or that violates basic human dignity may be deemed “cruel and unusual.” For example, in 1995, a federal court in Massachusetts found that inmates’ rights were violated when they were held in a 150-year-old prison that lacked toilets and was fraught with vermin and fire hazards.
The lives of General Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Michael Caputo and many others have been disrupted or destroyed because of Robert Mueller…and his very questionable ethics and behavior.
General Michael Flynn
Both Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, and General Michael T. Flynn, the president’s first national security adviser are central targets of Mueller’s investigation. They have been financially ruined with legal costs, and Paul Manafort has been put in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day despite never being convicted of a crime. Yet Harvey Weinstein is free on a million dollars bail for sexual assault and rape charges.
In May of 2018, the House Intelligence Committee released a new report that featured a whole bunch of redactions being viewable. Despite the House Intelligence Committee’s legitimate oversight of the DOJ/FBI, the latter has been deliberately slow in responding to congressional requests, and when they did give up documents, they were heavily redacted. Why? Not because of national security issues, but to protect themselves.
Everyone who interviewed or spoke with General Flynn knew he had not lied to anyone. That includes Agents Strzok and Pientka, Comey, McCabe, Pence, Priebus, protagonist Sally Yates and others. The redacted info finally came out and would have been beneficial to the General. The FBI were concealing their own questionable judgments and conflicting explanations for their actions. They also used foreign-intelligence and criminal-investigative authorities to investigate Michael Flynn. Their explicitly stated belief that Flynn did not lie in the FBI interview for which Special Counsel Robert Mueller has since prosecuted him on false-statements charges, means his guilty plea should be tossed. General Michael T. Flynn never lied to anyone, including VP Pence.
So why did the General plead guilty to lying to the FBI? Sun Tzu said, “He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot, will be victorious.” Louie Gohmert’s expose on Mueller’s modus operandi explains why General Flynn pleaded guilty. He was set up for a process crime because of the deep animosity of the FBI and Mueller against both the President and the General. If this were part of the basis for a collusion case arising out of Russia’s election meddling, then General Flynn would not be pleading guilty to a process crime. He would be pleading to an espionage conspiracy.
On Feb. 15, 2017, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, (R-IA) and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA), asked the Justice Department to turn over the transcript of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn’s infamous call with the Russian ambassador, plus other documents related to the Flynn case.
Grassley repeated his demand for the Flynn transcript, and also for the FBI’s so-called 302 report, in which the agents who interviewed Flynn made extensive notes on what was said. Grassley also asked for any other notes or documents relating to the interview. And Grassley asked that the FBI make available agent Joe Pientka, one of the two agents (along with Peter Strzok) who conducted the Flynn interview. As far as I can tell, Grassley has never received any of these requested documents.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) recently said there is growing evidence the FBI altered their 302 summaries of witness interviews in both the Clinton investigation to exonerate her of her guilt, and early on in the Russia investigation to falsely charge General Flynn with lying.
General Michael T. Flynn was railroaded. Everyone said the General never lied, then along came Robert Mueller and everything changed. Michael T. Flynn should still be at the President’s side.
President Trump is responsible for the heads of the Department of Justice and FBI. He not only has the authority but the duty to ensure that his subordinates honor lawful disclosure requests from Congress.
Former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort is being destroyed and like General Flynn and others, his destruction has nothing to do with the duplicitous Russian collusion investigation of our 2016 election.
The real collusion lies with Obama, Brennan and Hillary Clinton in their efforts to not only sell our uranium to Russia, but ultimately to destroy President Donald J. Trump.
Mr. President, beware of the many Deep State hyenas.
