  1. Barr and Mueller are best buddies. Together they worked out the terms of Mueller’s surrender. The result is The Mueller Report. So Mueller and Rosenjew and Sessions are probably safe. Who else is safe? I have no idea.

    I have to think that Trump wants to smite his enemies. Should he succeed he could credibly claim that he had “drained the swamp”. Except that Bolton and Pompeo are sleeping in his tent.

    I agree. Possible but unlikely. Sort of like withdrawing from Syria.

  2. Trump can only save himself by prosecuting to the limit. The Democrats destroyed Nixon over almost nothing although he carried 48 States. Why won’t the Republicans fight back when they have a just cause? Possible but unlikely. Why?

    No, just more diversion from the real problems….US hegemeny and increasing wealth gap.

    It’s not Trumps tent.

    Both parties are part of the Deep State.

  6. Nothing will happen.

    The magic negro cannot be touched.

    If Trump puts enough of these “State” crooks in jail he may win all 50 states. Even Vermont.

  9. Biff says:

    I’m actually glad to see this kind of corruption so brazen, and so divisive. What once was a somewhat homogeneous ball of American poltik is now fracturing along fault lines, and opening up fissures that will probably never come back together again. One shot across the bow and it’s game on – civil war.

    It’s revealing to watch people follow their logical empirical noses just so far and then veer away from Crimethink.

    Barr is CIA’s lawyer, a GHW Bush factotum since before Iran-Contra. Mueller is CIA’s cleaner.

    https://digwithin.net/2018/04/08/muellers-history/

    Bruce Ohr is CIA officer Nellie’s first-degree relative and confederate. Sater, CIA’s go-to Russian boogieman, wanted to make a movie about his derring-do as a CIA agent, until CIA shut him up because they needed to dress him up as a Russian spy instead. DCI Brennan started this.

    And who goes in the title? FBI. FBI is CIA’s domestic arms and legs. CIA runs your sniveling country. Everybody in the outside world knows this, but the subject population just can’t spit it out. Utter subjection.

    Oh, and Stephan Halper, Ray Cline’s son-in-law. How bleedin’ obvious does this have to get before the nickel drops?

  12. @agnosia

    Look champ! I don’t disagree with you one bit.

    But to imply that an individual citizen is less than worthless as a citizen because that citizen doesn’t raise his voice or, even worse, his weapon and protest in either peaceful or warring ways even though that citizen is utterly disgusted with the Federal Government, which most of us are, IS DISREGARDING THE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN PERIL THAT CITIZEN AND THE CITIZEN’S FAMILY WOULD BE IN ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.

    Want an example? Two words. Julian Assange. He’s not even a citizen of the U.S. He wasn’t in the U.S. when he dumped those U.S. documents online. But not unlike the use of predator drones to kill supposed terrorists anywhere in the world and despite its violation of the sovereignty of the countries in which those people are murdered Assange will get a similar treatment completely extraterritorial.

    I understand that the warrant for his arrest is based on the presumption that he encouraged a source to provide him information, something that every investigational journalist does every single day. And, he’s going to be extradited to the U.S. and held in prison for the rest of his life unless the CIA offs him first.

    I’ve learned that the best thing to do for my family is to shut the freak up and put myself as far away from those sorts of actions as possible, PERIOD. Call what you like. I’m looking out for my family.

    You don’t even have to ask Assange. Just ask John F. Kennedy … oh wait: you can’t. He’s dead.

  14. @Biff

    Obama – the first black President, and symbol of Liberalism, will be jailed. There’s your shot!

  15. Nothing is going to happen. The overall jewing is so intense that nobody in our government has the balls to speak out. The nose uses money as a form of control. You take the bribe and cooperate or you wind up like Patton or JFK or Seth Rich.

  16. Ken52 says:

    If you believe conservative sources, Admiral Rogers of the NSA is going to come out looking good. He’s alleged to have went to the chief judge of the FISA court and told him what was going on. Barr is suppose to have a report from the chief judge. Others have said that after the election, Rogers told Trump he was being wiretapped which led to Trump’s public accusation. Also remember when Brennan put forth the Intelligence Assessment on Russian hacking with handpicked analysts, the NSA agent only expressed “moderate confidence.” We will have to wait and see but I’d like to see that at least one anti-Trump official has some baseline of integrity.

  17. Ken52 says:

    On November 17th, 2016, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers travels to see President-Elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower, New York. Director Rogers does not inform his boss Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper.

    On November 17th, 2016, the Trump Transition Team announces they are moving all transition activity to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    On November 19th The Washington Post reported on a recommendation made by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in October that Mike Rogers be removed from his NSA position.

    The only possible answers as to why? Fear of the truth relating to truly heinous crimes. The same treasonous coup plotters embedded throughout our deep state are directly involved or paid to protect the evil at the top. Remember all the Republicans were compromised once they knowingly allowed an identity thief to usurp the Presidency. They all know. They were going to throw Sheriff Joe in prison for coming with the truth. Trump pardoned him. You are correct Trump and all patriots must destroy this evil. As repulsive as it is the facts say that there are many in our government on both sides of the one party scam that are involved in human trafficking and pedophilia in addition to murder, extortion, blackmail and treason. In other words they have no choice but to try and stop Trump and the truth. They will fail.

    I wish Mike Whitney had placed their names in brackets behind the asked questions as I have no idea who these people are and would like to know more. A couple of the commenters links helped fill out other parts of my knowledge but I really would have liked to have the pointers in brackets to the authors assertions in the article.

    I was reading your comment until I got to the Rosenfield slur. Then I realized you’re an anti-semite. Then I realized you’re not wise after all.

  21. Shoulda just skipped to the last question. We all know that none of those jew or goy useful idiot cunts will ever be held to account for their sedition conspiracy.

  22. @Zionist

    I was reading your comment until I got to the Rosenfield slur. Then I realized you’re an anti-semite. Then I realized you’re not wise after all.

    But he had you fooled for a little while there, didn’t he! Not all of goyim are as dumb as we seem …

  23. @Zionist

    I’m good with Semites. They were born that way. Zionists, not so much.

  24. It doesn’t matter in rare cases if you happen to be a jew or not, except for the most part it does.
    If you can’t say juju is bad then you are useless or worse. The lawless insurrection currently gripping the USA and the West is being led by jews and it will be put down.
    When you finish posting about dems and the only elephants that you can see in the room let us know. We are Nazis. If you are too scared to be a Nazi then you can not be a Nazi too.
