Iggy, just curious: did you see evidence of that FBI investigation that might ensnare Soros' favorite Florida politican, Andrew Gillum? We casually dismiss so much on this board. Henry just a few weeks ago noted a Chicago development that somehow spoke volumes. Then. But not now. It can be just so absurd. Later, Gators.

So, if he's able to build that wall henry in contravention of the Democrats -- and that civil service you appear to be so enamored with -- what say you? All hail the cartoon executive powers? Your comment gives me the same feeling I had after listening to Judge Sullivan dare to raise the issue of General Petraeus yesterday. That was an odd, odd statement. "wholly dependent of the civil service." That one may go in my hall of fame. Along with doom and gloom OL's assertion of a Presidency running off the rails. Are y'all sure y'all are on our side ??? * * * Duty calls. We buried our mother on this date last year; still coming to terms with that. Back for some more JOM juice tonight, hopefully

Ummmmm . . . "The President is wholly dependent of the civil service." Henry, please.

And this overseer of the clown show somehow avoided multiple attempts to derail his candidacy, nomination and presidency -- successfully -- how precisely ??? Admittedly, this requires a certain amount of 4D chess logic on your part to believe such -- presuming you honestly believe it -- so help me on this score . . . how do you suspect he pulled that off ??? He's just the luckiest clown on the planet?

So . . . Trump is overseeing a clown show -- that's your position, henry ???

Of course he's building the wall. The man is delivering, and he can't be stopped. If people stopped bitching about 4D chess it would be much easier to see. * * * An intelligence plan that is based on bankrupting the top intel guy, then sending him to prison does do sound very smart to me. But 4D gotta 4D. Posted by: henry | December 19, 2018 at 07:53 AM You think General Flynn is going to prison, henry? No, henry, it doesn't sound like a smart plan to you. And *that's* the beauty of it. No offense intended, of course, but you think much like the bankers and globalists and you're educated in one of their main battle stations. General Flynn wasn't and Admiral Rogers wasn't. Hmmmmmmmm. Flynn would never *bankrupt* himself. The bankers would *never* roll that way. Flynn would never knowingly put his son in jeopardy -- right? No, he's just stupid. Everyone not educated in a certain credentialed way is ultimately stupid. Thus, perfect blackmail material. And if you're Shanty Irish and know blackmail is how they've maintained systematic control for years and years, *and* by virtue of your exalted military position you also know they've done this by abusing the FISA process . . . well, give the sorry bastards the bait they subconsciously can't resist. Feed the fuckers !!! You play the grifting role that has become the norm in D.C. No one will question it, no one will be surprised, no one will suspect a damn thing. All they will say is . . . GOTCHA !!! No, bitch, no you don't! They've figured out by now they've been suckered, for sure. The bankers and their cadre. Look at the overseas arrests, look at Podesta running and hiding, etc. But how to confuse everything so damn much that you can now just focus on minimizing the damage ??? From my vantage point, everything they are doing right now is to try and minimize the damage. Fight for a stalemate. Their problem is that Trump wants their ass, and he's going to get their ass -- because he's in control of the Executive Branch and knows how to exercise executive power. Watch and see.

You're not thinking back far enough, Tom R., in your December 19, 2018 at 08:43 AM comment. Again, my theory is that Trump knew he was being surveilled before entering the race. General Flynn knew he was being surveilled. Admiral Rogers run to Trump Tower was staged to aid a narrative that none of them knew. But they did. The *only* explanation for Trump deftly using these parties that stepped to him, all designed to set him up for downfall, and AVOIDING THE DOWNFALL is that he knew their plan and investigated -- on the down low -- every party that was suggested to him. Trump has his own elite investigative force -- we've certainly acknowledged that, right? He had previously been used as an FBI asset re the casinos, right? His team knew the deal and they used certain Bottom Bitches sent to them for show purposes, primarily. Think it through.

Does that mean you don’t have a problem with Flynn taking $530,000 from Erdogan, not informing Trump about it, then advocating a military policy that was in direct conflict with what the Pentagon wanted but was what Erdogan wanted? Posted by: Tom R | December 18, 2018 at 10:27 PM * * * I will bet you a 6 pack of beer when Trump and the other generals in his inner circle discovered Flynn sided with Erdogan over the Pentagon that it was not a pretty sight. Posted by: Tom R | December 18, 2018 at 11:18 PM * * * Here is what I think: Tom R, I'm surprised you bought that McClatchy article you linked at 11:48 p.m. -- don't we understand by now how the press is strategically used to create a desired narrative? The way people are casually accepting this yang that General Flynn danced with Turkey, unbeknownst to Trump is amazing. We all benefit, in this particular instance especially, to remember the war going on within our government, and remember the DIA vs CIA element of that war. There is no way in hell, IMHO, that General Flynn took 530K from Turkey absent a counterintelligence aspect to the taking. There is some factionalized shiznit going on that explains this craziness but I don't believe for one second that there is separation between what the President wanted and what General Flynn did. Or that General Flynn and DIA isn't a prime supporter of what is happening with MbS in Saudi Arabia or el-Sisi in Egypt. That likely means containing the aspirations of Erdogan. Remember this: it was the foolishness of the Obama Administration (and a certain element in the CIA along with the global bankers) that embraced the Muslim Brotherhood favored by Erdogan. And put in power that failed group in Egypt. There's a war going on beyond what y'all suspect. I have no clue how our dear Judge factors into this, how he may have been manipulated, or how he may have inadvertently gummed up a decent plan, or whatever. But . . . 4D chess, bitches. Deal with it. It's beginning to appear to me that this global re-set desired by President Trump is being fought by the bankers and the Deep State with Mueller as their lead guy. I remain confident Flynn's Turkey adventure is all part of the bait and the obvious disparity cited by KK with his Gateway Pundit link presents the selective prosecution compare and contrast. As for Judge Sullivan? I'm totally confused by the Judge; maybe the bankers got to him, maybe he's just doing his job, maybe he's part of the internal effort to blunt the bankers. Very hard to know.

Okay . . . I get it . . . 4D chess, bitches !!! (that's just for you, TK! And everyone else similarly situated.) A tremendous amount of attention has now been focused . . . and some strident language coming from the bench for relatively minor shiznit. That's my theory until proven otherwise. It's good having a theory that's applicable to practically any occurrence. Y'all should try it. Off to Jacksonville.

Henry, we have to keep in mind the juxtaposition of what was perpetrated upon *him* and others. This judge seems to be setting down a very hard standard that is going to be super difficult for others. Remember, if *this* is a very serious offense . . . what of the duty owed by those in the FBI ??? What of the wholesale failure detailed by Robyn Gritz ???

I'm here for the decision. We're still doing that Veranda-Ledge fight, huh? Are there any "Shanty Irish" here? I'd never heard that term but I love it. I'm hoping the Flynn's get their revenge and I have no problem with him standing by his plea. That was *his* sacrifice for his President. Now to see what the representative for the judicial branch does.

RattlerGator: Our political class has so failed us, on both sides of the aisle, that we're truly in uncharted territory and the Trump Administration has to successfully manage *all* of this shiznit, this desperately needed re-set, in a way that doesn't diminish American support for our law enforcement, legal, and judicial institutions James D.: I agree with the first half of this, but not the second. My support for law enforcement, legal and judicial institutions (especially at the federal level) is in the toilet, and si is further every day. I know you see a grand plan and moving pieces and imminent victory. I wish I could; I see nothing being done to counter even the most blatant and in-your-face corruption, which is being carried out at taxpayer expense. For example: the whole idea of the 302s,and the FBI not recording interviews, and the reports being written up weeks or month later, is obiously awful, and that’s something that i think everyone can ageee on, and which there’s really no way to defend. So why hasn’t that practice been stopped? There are literally countless other examples. Posted by: James D. | December 16, 2018 at 06:23 AM This is an article that walks through a local Tallahassee story of possible national importance (equally possible it's merely a local story): https://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/2018/12/15/indictment-tallahassee-scott-maddox-carter-smith-fbi-corruption-city-hall-no-mention-andrew-gillum/2312802002/ This article has a link to the indictment at the bottom of the page; it's an interesting read (to me) of just how brazen these grifters can be: http://www.wtxl.com/news/trial-date-set-for-scott-maddox-paige-carter-smith/article_c88c79c0-fe1e-11e8-8fac-6fb0836200c0.html If -- as some in the Twitterverse allege -- there has been a decade-long attempt by certain elements within the FBI (often frustrated by certain OTHER elements) to disrupt the national strategy of bribing and co-opting local, state and national politicians by payments from domestic and foreign agents of influence, this might be an interesting case to follow. Soros' people hand-picked Andrew Gillum as far back as 2012 for the role he just played in our election for Governor. I remain stunned that he came as close to winning as he did but it places a spotlight on just how unserious much of our electorate has often become. The FBI investigation was a known factor and half the voters (apparently) still voted for him -- a man with no real experience outside of local government in Tallahassee . . . to be Governor of a mega-state! Amazing. That investigation is ongoing; Gillum may or may not come out of it unscathed but his odds of doing so are certainly no better than 50 percent. My bigger point in this post, James D., is this: our adversary wants us to be jaded and disrespectful of ordinary Americans, including our average civil servants. They very much want us to lose faith because that is the one component that *most* distinguishes us from the rest of the world. We deride "useful idiots" on the leftwing, don't we? Why take the chance of unwittingly serving the same role on the conservative side of the aisle at the very moment when we *finally* have a real fighter in the White House? At a moment when we finally have a fighter who not only knows how to wield executive power but also knows how to set up moves on a chess board in order to facilitate processes designed to make trade deals most beneficial for the American people much more of a reality? At this moment in time when his nation-state, anti-globalist message is clearly resonating around the world ??? YMMV but I'll be damned if I'm going down *that* jaded road as pre-ordained by Soros and his crowd. Faith and patience . . . and good, old-fashioned American optimism rule my world.

RG, maybe I’ll open a new front... Do you believe Trump & allies are the smarter people in the room? If so (and it seems you do), do you think the progs/swamp know this by now? If the answers are yes and yes, don’t we have to assume that the swamp has enlisted some help? Can/does TrumpCo escalate the arms race without limit? Posted by: Another Bob | December 15, 2018 at 07:02 PM Thanks for humoring me, AB. I dive back into JOM and then remember why I have to leave y'all alone most of the time -- I love shooting the shiznit with y'all. Now, this may be too verbose but here goes nothing. Here is what I suspect, and remember . . . I was on the other side politically, I worked on a campaign for Corrine Brown in Jacksonville / Orlando in 2000, and I've seen some of the dishonest conversations politicians and their acolytes have *with* themselves and *among* themselves -- okay? Yes, the denizens of the Swamp are certainly aware of Trump's existential threat to them. They've *always* known, from his first announcement. In fact, before he ever announced. They know damn well he's smarter than them. Politicans, by rule, aren't the swiftest and most political leftwingers genuinely aren't nearly as smart as they think they are. Politicians are also quite insecure; almost like actors. That said, they can't enlist political help to combat Trump, AB, and here's why: Clinton, Inc. hates Obama, Inc. and vice-versa. Do you see the problem? Both of them have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Both have committed criminal acts. Everybody is scheming on how to minimize the direct effect on them. In fact, there's tremendous speculation floating around that Obama (of course) fully expected Hillary to win . . . and the White House was bugged (originally) for Obama vs Clinton reasons. Think about that. Our political class has so failed us, on both sides of the aisle, that we're truly in uncharted territory and the Trump Administration has to successfully manage *all* of this shiznit, this desperately needed re-set, in a way that doesn't diminish American support for our law enforcement, legal, and judicial institutions. That's no easy task. Capisce !?! So we get this drawn out investigation that frustrates the nation but it will ultimately clear Trump while capturing many of the Bottom Bitches in government and surrounding DC, their bribers and lobbyists and a select few politicians who have most corrupted our system. Trump is essentially giving the whole system an enema. I can't wait to see what he and Mick Mulvaney (and others) come up with on how to re-imagine how the federal government does what it does. I'm expecting blockbuster stuff.

Posted by: matt - deplore me if you must | December 15, 2018 at 01:01 PM Matt, the good guys are skillfully using chaos (and creativity) against the leftwing grifters & globalists. Yes, some money will be lost on the front end for people who have willingly signed off as participants. No one is losing money who doesn't understand the larger cause. That's my opinion. For instance, I've known Carter Page was an intelligence asset from the very beginning; he was clearly playing a role. Every charge applied to the good guys is far, far more damaging when later applied to the bribers, the lobbyists, and the politicians. Giving him the benefit of the doubt *or* simply recognizing he can't do damage to the President, the effect of Mueller is that he's clearing Trump from future BS charges of collusion or wrongdoing in office and precedents are being set as established by the media whores who are cheering on these relatively low-level punishments to a select few. Think about it; apply a grid. The picture, IMHO, begins to become much more clear. The majority here find it very hard to believe. Because it is. But it is also the sign of a damn good Op.

Gus, remember my thing: optimism costs me nothing as long as I remain cautiously curious. As a military man, my mindset tells me that Mueller -- as a Marine and Paratrooper -- commands a certain amount of respect and I will give him *more* benefit of the doubt than the ordinary non-military man. I *want* to have faith in Bob Mueller. I *have* faith in my President. And until he sends Mueller packing, I'm okay giving Mueller the benefit of the doubt -- especially because I know Rosenstein appointing Mueller rescued the "collusion" probe from McCabe, and I know damn well McCabe is a sorry sap-sucker who desperately wanted to impeach the President in an entirely partisan manner. Those of y'all with no faith in Mueller or Rosenstein are totally missing this aspect. McCabe would have forced Trump to fire him and that would have been the obstruction drama they desperately wanted.

And Rocco, this may help to further understand where I'm coming from (or how deluded I am): I don't think Jeff Sessions was fired. Jeff hired Matt Whitaker as his Chief of Staff. Usually, no one works closer with an agency head than the Chief of Staff. This was (and is) part of the plan. So, too, more than likely, was (and is) Mick Mulvaney coming in now as Chief of Staff. Trump wants to revolutionize how our Federal Government is structured. It appears now may be the time to move on that, just as it is time to move on Criminal Justice reform and the infrastructure. You want Mulvaney in that slot now or General Kelly? And Mulvaney is holding onto his OMB job? Yeah, the man is operating off of a very flexible plan. We've never seen anything like it.
