A Little Before Mueller’s Time
The New York Times and Washington Post report that the FBI had someone providing them information about the Trump Campaign, someone associated with the campaign.
Dictionary.com defines “spy” as:
President Trump said that the FBI had a spy in his campaign. This led to such headlines as:
- “Donald Trump turned a rumor into a full-blown government conspiracy in just 5 days” – CNN
- “Trump repeats unproven conspiracy theory” – CNN
- “Trump’s FBI Spy Theory Is Completely Insane” – New York Magazine
- “The No. 1 reason Trump’s ‘spygate’ conspiracy theory doesn’t make sense” – Washington Post
- “Blame these people for Trump’s outrageous attack on truth and U.S. law enforcement” – Jennifer Rubin at Washington Post (their once alleged conservative columnist, though if that beastie is what WaPo thinks a conservative is it’s no wonder they’re so deathly out of touch with reality)
What exactly is THEIR definition of spy, or spying? Maybe this explains the credibility gap between us and the fake news media. Maybe they’re really telling the truth, but they speak an entirely different dialect of English. Or maybe America is suffering from Anosognosia Of The Media (A.M.).
The alternative, of course, is that these “journalists” believe that if they tell a lie (well, maybe half lie) enough, everyone will start believing it. And naturally, they complain that Trump is the one enabling dictatorships even though they’re the ones whose methods of deceit and whose goals of opposing free governments most align with the totalitarians. But like Saul Alinsky (Hillary Clinton’s mentor) said: accuse the other side of doing what you’re doing.
Repeat It, Like Other Lies, They Told About This…
They said that no one was ever spying on the Trump campaign. Well, that’s obviously a lie. Remember how they said revealing the spy would be illegal and jeopardize national security? Remember their breathless coverage of courageous Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) as he threatened to prosecute Republican Congressmen and Senators if they tried to find out who the spy was because people would die if that happened? Lies again! The spy turned out to be some guy who’s already well known for spying. So instead of looking like idiots for over-hyping the murders and collapse of intelligence gathering that would happen if anyone learned the identity of the spy, the media instead goes for looking stupid trying to say there was no spy after they themselves leaked enough details to identify the spy.
And so comes in my favorite Congressman to hate on- Adam Schiff (D-CA). This man must have stuffed a crayon up his nose or something as a wee lad, for all the wonderful sound bites he gives (like saying 15 months ago that there’s more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, but not revealing any of it even after the House shut down the investigation he was part of, even after the Mueller Probe failed to find or at least act on any such evidence after a year of looking). Adam said, within 90 seconds, that revealing the name of the spy would kill people and collapse our intel networks and that there, in fact, was not a spy at all. Personally, I liked Mr. Krabs’ delivery better. The icing on the cake is this: Adam Schiff made these statements days AFTER the NYT and WaPo released enough information about the spy that within five minutes everyone had identified him.
So for weeks the media and politicians tell us that we can’t know who the spy is, then the media tells us who it is, then the media and politicians either say there was no spy or that we can’t reveal information about the spy without causing a lot of damage. Or both, as Adam Schiff went for. And Former DNI James Clapper and Former FBI Director James Comey, who both went so far as to say no one was spying on the campaign at all but people were spying on it (Comey has since gone to just say nothing happened at all, period, despite his earlier remark). CNN too, who think this is a vast rightwing conspiracy… even after the leakers and NYT and WaPo admit it happened. And after all this, after the government leaks info that the media says would lead to people dying, after the media itself reports that the government spied on a political campaign, we have folks coming out and saying that it is wrong to question the government’s integrity.
Speaking Of Wild Remarks
Sen. Chucky Schumer (D-NY) said that only a banana republic would investigate its law enforcement officials if circumstantial evidence (like Brennan, a political hack like Schumer, who once voted for a candidate that really was colluding with Russia, aiming the intel community at Trump the moment he looked like the Republican nominee) indicates a possible abuse of power. Remember- Schumer champions the Mueller Probe which is looking at all things even remotely related to the election to find any kind of crime committed by anyone involved with Trump at any point in their lives. Even if it has to manufacture one, as Michael Flynn learned. Or they’ll just settle for destroying your life. So in Schumer’s world, creating a taxpayer-funded group of law enforcement sicarios (they’re only one step more civilized than cartel hit men, only because they didn’t give Michael Flynn a Colombian necktie, so I refuse to demean mafia torpedoes by comparing them to the Mueller investigators) with unlimited power to prosecute political opponents is perfectly fine, but countering this corruption is itself the definition of corruption.
Schumer has shown yet again that he, the DNC, and clearly the entire Democrat Party and its myriad voters are all a bunch of gangsters. Thugs. Wannabe dictators trying to remake the U.S. into a banana republic of their own. I am laying blame on the entirety of the Democrat electorate simply because we are told Democrats are smarter and more independent, and more sane than Republicans. If that is the case, then they MUST be aware of what their leadership, like Schumer, is up to. They either do not care about what is going on or even support their goals. At the very least this argument applies to every Democrat in the state of New York that voted Schumer in, as well as his plentiful donors across the country… and let’s be honest, across the world because the number 1 Senate Democrat probably gets his share of foreign investment the same as the number 1 Republican.
What Did That Informant/Spy Do?
Halper tried to establish whether or not the Trump Campaign had connections with Russia. He started work July of 2016. He was unsuccessful in finding evidence of collusion and was even frustrated when George Papadopoulos had no idea what he was talking about when he asked George about alleged Russian meddling.
Which Way Will It go, George, Which Way Will It Go?
George Papadopoulos is significant because I think the current iteration of the investigation’s origins (not the Mueller Probe; I mean the investigation that put Halper into the Trump Campaign. The Mueller Probe has only charged George with lying to the FBI, with said lie being that he told them he made contact with someone before he joined the campaign. The FBI thinks it is a lie because, though not part of the campaign at the time he made contact with this guy, George knew he would be in the campaign.) have him as being important. I don’t know, I might be behind on the latest origin story and stuck with what it was for Earth-Two, courtesy of the fantasy weavers on the Left that might be on Earth-One right now. First, they tell us it’s Carter Page and the Steele Dossier, then George.
George was one of the targets for chosen spy Halper, and the timeline is where the Left and DOJ/FBI slip up. James Comey (FBI Director at the time) told Congress under oath that their investigation began in LATE July, and Democrats in Congress pinned the date down as being July 31, 2016. Except Halper started spying for the FBI on July 11, 2016. Oops. Plus, former DNI Director James Clapper implied George wasn’t so major of a player in all this as to be the start of the investigation (otherwise Clapper would certainly remember his name).
Going back to the Steele Dossier for a second- Axios is saying that the House GOP’s finding that the Pee-Tape Dossier was used to trigger the FBI’s investigation, and Trump parroting that, are now discredited because the FBI had been investigating Trump much longer. Two problems come to mind. 1: that means the DOJ withheld information from Congress otherwise they’d have known better, and 2: the FISA memo was in fact retrieved based largely on the Dossier, so it still played a substantial role. Oh yeah, and 3: it sure looks like the FBI acted on the Steele Dossier when they deployed Halper- the FBI received it July 5, and on July 11 Halper starts spying on Carter Page who is hyped-up mightily in the Dossier. It’s still almost/more than 3 weeks before we’re told the FBI started their investigation that we see the FBI investigating this.
Speaking Of Violated FBI Rules
Oh, by the way, in regards to the idea that Halper was just there to check if Russia was trying to infiltrate the campaign rather than check for wrongdoing by the campaign itself, the FBI’s rulebook says it was supposed to notify the Trump Campaign instead of planting a spy. The Obama Administration decided not to do this. Taken alone
that might just seem reckless and slightly abusive like they were looking for an excuse to put a spy in the campaign, but consider the other steps the DOJ took (and the lies) and this takes on a more sinister overtone. Steps like setting-up Mike Flynn for a perjury trap, steps like “leaking” that J.D. Gordon met with Russian ambassadors in a “secret meeting” (which turned out to be lunch at the RNC among hundreds of other ambassadors) so that his reputation would be destroyed, and finally steps like the Deputy AG ordering an investigation into Trump over (in part) obstruction of justice because Trump did what the Deputy AG recommended and fired the FBI Director (notice how Newsweek dismisses this and proven collusion with Russia as conspiracy theories, to defend the idea that there is no DOJ corruption and to defend the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory).
And now we add that the Obama Administration decided not to warn the Trump campaign they could be facing Russian infiltration. The Obama Admin also didn’t want to warn the Trump Campaign that Carter Page and Paul Manafort had foreign ties. And sure enough, there’s an investigation into Trump-Russia collusion afterward. It’s like if police were to take down those “one-way” signs and then lie in wait to give tickets to people that travel the wrong way up a street while having let someone get into your car who would tell you to drive in that direction. And oh look, they even charged Paul Manafort (for unrelated stuff), who never would’ve been in this position with the Trump Campaign to begin with if the Obama Admin had warned them.
Well, there you have it. Spies, and what appears to be entrapment and outright fabricating charges (like for Flynn and George, where Comey had to fabricate intent for Flynn and George was charged for not sharing the FBI’s definition that you are working on a campaign before you work on a campaign). And the best defense the Left has is to deny that any of this is happening, or try to divert to an even more implausible story (as was the case when shifting from Page to Papadopoulos). But it’s as clear as black and white that there was spying afoot, as reported in the Left’s own black and white printed papers of record!
