The Deep State Tapestry of Deceit
is Beginning to Unravel

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/27/2020 5:19:54 AM

Deep state players in the Obama administration wove an elaborate tapestry of collusion, subterfuge, and electoral chicanery. While better suited for a Robert Ludlum novel, it played out in real time over the past four years. (snip) Aside from the illegality of deceiving the FISA court, and the seditious efforts to remove a duly elected American president, it blows up all downstream Democrat, media, and deep state efforts to overturn the 2016 election. There is a legal doctrine called the “fruit of the poisonous tree.” To summarize: A doctrine that extends the exclusionary rule to make evidence inadmissible in court if it was derived from evidence that was illegally obtained.

Evidence obtained from an illegal search is suppressed but knowledge obtained through that search of a separate and independent crime is no problem, if it relies on other legally obtained evidence. Manafort, Flynn, Cohen are not off the hook.

“ Hopefully their reckoning awaits. Along with well-deserved pain.” Wake me up when it starts to happen. And we don’t yet know if Barr and Durham are the heroes of this story. If anyone in the list of criminals in this article isn’t imprisoned for life, we’ll know all about whether or not there is any heroism.

Funny thing. Whenever I see these familiar names connected to the attempted Coup, Hillary Clinton's name is rarely mentioned. I guess that means She will skate again. Laughing all the way to her luxurious home and lifestyle! What a shame!

FTA: “If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.” This is part of the article that explains the consequences of the unlawful spying on the President. The law is clear, easily understood and if it is not followed we will know our government is too corrupt to police itself. The democrats have been caught red handed. The country deserves justice. Anyone involved in these illegal activities must be treated the same, no one is above the law. Isn't that what the democrats have been telling is these past three years? We have suffered for three years with this impeachment fiasco because the democrats were desperate to get rid of Trump so all of this would just go away. Too much has been revealed to ignore this. Americans are not stupid and they see who the real criminals are. I want to believe that now that the tables are turned justice will truly be served and no one deserves it more that these evil democrats.

There is no such thing as "fabricated opposition research." If its fabricated it isn't research. See how even the "good guys" get trapped in the web of propoganda? Words matter. It's hard to believe justice will be served when the scuzzball who said he had evidence of collusion when he did not causing a shift (pardon me) to Ukraine, who pulled a fast one pretending to read a slanderous phony version of the transcript, is still leading the House in the Impeachment process. Positively preposterous and we have been conditioned to accept that as business as usual.

“This is what Barr and Durham are investigating, pulling on the thread, unraveling the elaborately constructed tapestry, revealing a group of hateful partisans engaged in a seditious conspiracy to overturn a legitimate government. Hopefully their reckoning awaits. Along with well-deserved pain.” Hateful partisans, indeed... It is no coincidence that the pain America is going through now with the tragic death of an amazing American Icon, Kobe and his dear daughter and the other innocent travelers, is a vivid legitimate tragic, unplanned or conspired pain and loss... May this sham impeachment of America’s duly elected President be over as quickly as possible and the EVIL perpetrators be punished to the full extent of our laws, so America can join Vanessa Bryant and America as we grieve this true unplanned, accident and tragedy...

You wanted an outsider, and this is what you get. The good news is that the "outsider" is apparently being resolute; the bad news is that the outsider is wrapped in "legalities" and political/legal ramifications that stretch in all directions with few he can truly trust who share his "drain the swamp" vision honorably. You cannot replace everyone with no one, and it is harder when you don't have the support of the political class you are trying to expose, which is always ready, willing and able to promote from within. It's not hard to run down the list of "failed" presidential appointments, from Jeff Sessions to Rod Rosenstein, Rex and Mad Dog, John Bolton and Seb Gorka, right through Chris Wray, who maintains his FBI position despite few reforms seemingly underway. The rich and/or influential are different.

It can unravel all it wants. I'm still waiting for Barr and Durham to deliver the indictments, trials, convictions, and prison terms. This will rip at the soul of the nation because the dims, deep state, globalists, and the msm will try to take the country down with them. But, we must stand tall at all times.

The Deep State is very deep and this wasn't going to be easy. I don't look for anything to happen to Obama or Clinton but the nucleus of the coup needs to see some justice. Obama and Hillary Clinton are not that smart and clever to devise all of this but it was designed with their knowledge. All roads will lead to them so let the stigma hang on both of them forever. I want Comey and Brennan behind bars writing their books and memoirs from a jail cell not on CNN TV. I want President Trump re-elected and have a great four more years of fixing the country and maybe the entire democrat socialist party running for the tall grass to eat their 'poison fruit' out of sight from real Americans.

What this entire shampeachment confirms is how critical it is for any Republican President to remove and replace people in positions of authority/oversight from the previous Democrat administration as soon as possible. Of course you can't sweep entire organizations clean, but their leadership and supervisory level people have to be replaced. Both Bush and Trump were much too slow and accepting of the former leadership class, thus setting up the conditions for frequent, complicit, and unrestrained efforts to spy, leak, and generally sabotage the President's every move. Let this be a lesson to any future Republican President (if there ever is one after Trump). Remove the potential insurgency leaders or be prepared for never-ending resistance attacks.

Instant invalidation of all the defendants' convictions could scarcely begin to repair the damage these illegal warrants have done to them, to the Trump presidency and to the nation. The most we can reasonably hope for is eventual invalidation of a few convictions affecting a few of the defendants. Who among us will be surprised if even this trimmed-down expectation is disappointed?

Absolutely agree, #13. Devin Nunes was on Tucker last week and almost pleaded with President Trump to move these Obama deep state holdovers out of at least the National Security Council staff (even Vindman is still in the White House!). Even if you are worried about the lawsuits and media/democrat whining about firing these people, Nunes suggested there are plenty of empty office buildings around DC where you could just send these people to do nothing. Hope the President listened and acts accordingly.

There was no successful deceit and the motive has always been clear to the "woke." Everything under investigation was an ATTEMPT. The only real crimes have been pinned on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe and Hunter Biden, the FBI and the intelligence agency heads and most recently, the democrat leadership in the House.

They talk about this guy as if he was FDR when all he was was your run-of-the-mill sleazy Chicago pol. His team was appallingly bad and they did mucho bad stuff. Now he stands on the sidelines, murmuring and second-guessing. This is the guy who gave Ben Rhodes a job. This is the guy who put a voting communist in charge of the CIA. This is the guy who put Jean Francois and the PIAPS in the SecState seat. Many of these people should be in prison; all should be on the ash heap of history.

#10 - Gorka left the White House under "unique circumstances" after seven months on the job - fired or quit. Apparently he ran afoul of Jared Kushner and others. There were also issues with security clearances. IIRC. How would one characterize this stint as "successful"? His accomplishments in this time included...what? Like Bolton, Gorka is a celebrity television panel guest, talking a better game than he can play. You can tune him in at your leisure.

This is a bit off topic but do the dems realize how silly they are to the rest of the world. The most horrendous murder took place under Obama and he called it a blip in the road. No one has yet been held accountable for Benghazi. No one has answered why weren't the people protected more when they asked for it. No one has asked why were they murdered. I'm not interested in this campaigning under to guise of impeachment. I will never vote democrat again. They are just a very crooked, corrupt party. Barr, where are you?

Nancy Pelosi throws a public temper tantrum

Posted by Magnante 2/5/2020 5:06:58 AM Post Reply
Two different events played out on the floor of the House on Tuesday night. The first was President Trump’s powerful, moving, uplifting, and optimistic State of the Union speech. The second was the immature, arrogant, intemperate, and really disgusting temper tantrum in which Democrats indulged. The most obvious sign of a complete mental breakdown on the left was Nancy Pelosi’s conduct during the speech. Her petulant behavior could not be missed because she was seated behind the president, to his left. Whenever the camera was on Trump, it was on Pelosi too. Pelosi's hissy fit first showed itself when Pelosi refused to give Trump the traditional formal introduction.

Karma is knocking on the door at the Democratic National Committee’s Washington, DC headquarters. The party of the plutocracy masquerading as the savior of the underclass, a coalition of grievance-fueled identity groups not completely comfortable with each other, may finally face the reckoning it so richly deserves. The only thing that unites eco-fanatics with the blue-collar labor unions, blacks with gays and Jews, or socialists with Wall Street financiers is the quest to harness the power of the state to their own interests. The optimistic take on the current fiasco rendering Democrats incapable of announcing the results of the Iowa caucuses is that the party is hopelessly incompetent.

If Steve Bannon is correct (and I think he probably is), Michael Bloomberg has no intention of occupying the Oval Office; his real plan is far more devious and frightening.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers.

Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, both members of Sweden's Left Party, argued that Thunberg’s international tour to combat climate change is worthy of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. In nominating Thunberg, Holm and Svenneling said the teenager had “worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” They argued that reducing emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is “an act of making peace.”

Wow, that was one hell of a State of the Union Address. President Trump seized the center with a powerful, patriotic and utterly centrist speech.

What, other than channeling the alienation of the Democratic base from the great American center, was she thinking? This was the very best of Trump — generous, bipartisan (with a few barbs) and good-spirited. He not only got congressional Democrats to stand and cheer, but he also credited the legislators in the room for working together across party lines to do right by America.
