October 2016: James Comey Friend
Benjamin Wittes Discusses “The
Insurance Policy” Against Trump…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/9/2018 9:10:38 AM

Researchers will share the value of pausing, going back, and looking upon previous information with new insight gained from current discoveries. In hindsight there are many contexts that shape a new understanding. Fired FBI Director James Comey ran a corrupt and heavily political organization. He himself helped to shape the politics of it. (Snip) Three days after the FBI secured the FISA “Title-1” surveillance authority over former Trump campaign official Carter Page (using the Clinton-Steele Dossier), Benjamin Wittes wrote a column in his blog titled: “What if Trump Wins” – “We need an insurance Policy“.

Remember references to the “Insurance Policy” from the Strzok-Page texts?

Read Wittes’s article. A stunning example of Democrat hubris, and Democrat pomposity. “We know better than those peasants.”

For purposes of this discussion, I’m going to make the perhaps radical assumption that Trump’s words seriously reflect the things he means to do. Trump is, to be sure, part clown and part showman, and I hope never to learn exactly what percentage of his words represents either clownsmanship or showmanship and what percentage reflects his real policy aspirations. In all candor, I suspect the man himself actually does not know the answer, so vaporous is his grasp of real policy matters.

I have the oddest feeling that Wittes may be a short man, a little guy, swept away by his friendship with big, tall, and to him powerful, Jim Comey. This little article in New York Magazine reveals what I suspected: A flaming Lib from Oberlin College, not a lawyer (although he has a blog called Lawfare) and very much in love with himself and his glibness. And his closeness to the powerful. In this case, Jim Comey. Very revealing.

In his own way Wittes is another Strzok and Page. Fascinated with the notion that HE could have the power to change history! Imagine!

We are under attack by filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs, and we are under attack by filthy government agents and lawyers and judges.
Shades of Ruby Ridge! Shades of Waco!

How did all of this come together? Is it the aging out of a representative democracy?
Is sedition a natural condition to such a society and government?
Or have Crooked Coward Comey, Herr Mueller, and Barack Obola all together done this to us?

I think, #2, why a lot of this is happening and has gone on for so long is because the so-called MSM are in the pockets of the left. Nothing the lefties do or say is EVER attacked as those on the right are. The medias nitwit followers believe everything put out by them and ergo...democrats good and care. Republicans evil and only care about their rich friends.

Been going on for decades in the media and the useless education establishment.

Brainwashing, pure and simple.

Very important commentary, by Sundance, and also by Wittes. This hows just exactly how completely desperate that these people are to stop Trump from being elected, and if that fails, to stop him from doing any of the things that got him elected. They are terrified that Trump could succeed.

It is critical to link to the two Wittes commentaries published before the election, as he was formulating and then planning to execute the plans to oppose Trump in every possible way with a cabal of leftists and their faux conservative, NeverTrumper allies. Think George Will, George Bush, smarmy little Billyboy Crystal, and more like them).

The two commentaries are this one:

and this one:


Well worth the reading time to grasp how the raving lunatic Dems and the fake conservative NeverTrumpers (Wittes friends) will work together to try to stymie all that Trump tries to accomplish. Wittes even singles out the important, beneficial "Muslim ban" (which it never was) for special efforts to prevent.

These Washington extreme leftist thugs, and their faux conservative NeverTrump allies, all are really very dangerous to our country. I really hope that a bunch of them can be put in prison for what they have illegally done. Many of them have been already removed from positions of power, which will help stop this group from harming the country as easily.

Worth reading the Link to "Courts" and how Wittes plans to do to utilize them to stop Trump´s agenda. He plans to file suite in all kinds of courts, he doesn´t care if he thinks those suits can be won. He only cares that it will stall The President´s agenda. So far it´s working!

A harrowing social media post that reportedly came from the victim of the Dolphins’ bullying scandal caused his alma mater high school in California to shut down Friday. It appears that former Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who in 2013 accused teammates of bullying, posted a photo on his Instagram story of a shotgun on a bed with 18 shells sprawled out around it. The caption: “When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge.” ABC has since reported that Martin, 28, has been taken into custody. In the post, Martin mentions four people or groups, including current

A picture of the weapon with the words Harvard Westlake written across the barrel triggered the school´s closure on Friday, according to three sources. The image, which referenced revenge and suicide as the only options for a victim of bullying, was posted to a verified Instagram account belonging to Martin, the former Miami Dolphins´ offensive lineman who accused teammates of bullying

First Lady Melania Trump stepped out of the White House on Friday wearing a military-inspired coat to greet Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife, Lucy. Wearing one of her favorite designers, Mrs. Trump chose a crisp, black and gold Dolce & Gabbana merino-wool blend coat that features gold trim encircling her waist and lapel. Lined in Dolce & Gabbana’s signature leopard print, the coat gives an oceanic vibe (a nod to Australia) with decorative gold buttons, reminiscent of a sea captain’s uniform.In another nod, the First Lady wore the Dolce & Gabbana coat — which retails for $2,157 at

Flashy silk and gold-embroidered outfits, adorned with pointy red shoes fit for royalty, are acceptable garb for Bollywood performers. But apparently not if you are the telegenic prime minister of Canada on a trade trip to India. Justin Trudeau and his family have attracted some praise but no little ridicule during their eight day visit for wearing elaborate traditional clothing that some insist is more appropriate for a Maharajah and his court than a visiting leader. While admirers in the sprawling multicultural country lauded him for dressing “truly in the spirit of India,” the tut-tutting disapproval was far louder.

Stop calling “snowflakes” snowflakes. Stop misrepresenting the greatness of the latter with the god-awfulness of the former, whose ranks include students and citizens too precious to offend and too prone to taking offense at almost everything. One is the result of a natural sequence of events, the consequence of which is a heavy yet silent downpour of beauty. The other is a storm of protest—an avalanche of anarchy—against criticism, independence, judgment, common sense, and conviction. To conflate the two is to debase human nature by degrading the subjects of Mother Nature, including geometry, physics, chemistry, light, and life itself; because the

A must-read report coming from The Hill regarding the ongoing firewall the Deep State has built around former FBI Director James Comey. EXCERPT: Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now appears some of Comey’s former FBI and Justice Department colleagues continue to protect him from accountability. Three suspicious activities stand out, all intertwined: The so-called Comey Memos, Comey’s controversial testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and Comey’s book deal.

Scot Peterson quit the Broward County Sheriff´s department after video showed he failed to engage the shooter who entered and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Peterson was the school´s cop, or in the parlance of the bureaucracy, "resource officer.”Sheriff Scott Israel told reporters that watching Peterson stay outside the building instead of engaging the shooter was devastating. "These families lost their children, we lost coaches. I´ve been to the funerals. I´ve been to the homes where they´re sitting shiva. I´ve been to the vigils.

A few points need to be emphasized for those unfamiliar with the Broward County system. First, with revelations of frequent LEO contact and calls from people warning about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, there’s a common narrative mistakenly being pushed by mainstream media. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) didn’t “miss warning signs” or make “mistakes” in not writing up reports. The Sheriff’s office did exactly what their internal policies, procedures and official training required them to do, they intentionally ignored the signs, and intentionally didn’t generate documents. Example: Miami Herald […] In November, a tipster called BSO to say Cruz

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

Adults who prostitute traumatized teenagers to advance their political agenda should be ashamed of themselves, and those at CNN who do it should be fired. Last night, moderator Jake Tapper looked on silently as Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Cameron Kasky compared Sen. Marco Rubio to a mass child murderer. Kasky prefaced his ignorant attack on the National Rifle Association by saying, “Senator Rubio, it’s hard to look at you and not look down the barrel of an AR-15 and not look at [shooter´s name], but you’re here.” Such vile calumny would ordinarily demand censure even from the Democrat

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever.
