Ship Of Fools

Becoming permanently cynical in this world, in these times, is a real possibility. The more hyperbolic hypocrisy that I find, quite easily, the more jaded I become. Internet comments, Twitter feeds and retorts, and media pontificating have become so disingenuous and intellectually dishonest that arguing with them is a fool’s errand. I get a plethora of juvenile opinions, and I mean that in a literal sense, not as an insult. I am not so much angry at this realization, but frustratingly morose. Don’t get me wrong, I have a deep reservoir of ruddy outrage that drives me to continue to venture “once more into the breach”, but the motivation has changed. I used to want to change minds, now I just want to wake up those that are still asleep…..because the fools dedicated to their brainwashing most likely can’t be saved, they must be marginalized and defeated. I don’t like thinking that, and honestly hope I’m wrong, but I doubt it.

Take California Representative Adam Schiff. He’s the guy that’s been on CNN and MSNBC virtually everyday claiming each and every person connected to – or defending – the Trump administration is a Russian agent. Seriously. And what was his response to the memos released recently that detail the abuse, sedition, and possible treason undertaken by high-level DOJ and FBI officials in order to derail and destroy a then candidate/now president? They were fighting Russia’s interference in our revered system, and he, as well as the rest of the clown-car inhabitants, were heroes straight out of a Tom Clancy novel. Sure. Well, just in the last 48 hours, the “honorable” Adam Schiff has been completely exposed as a liar, hypocrite, and complete sellout. Last April Schiff spent 8 minutes on a phone call with 2 Ukrainian ( the place that used to be Russia and is now just next door to it ) YouTube pranksters. The purpose of the call? The pranksters were pretending to be Ukrainian diplomats that had “naked photos of Mr. Trump provided to them by their Russian counterparts”. This is last April, mind you, not April of ’16……and Schiff and his democrat buddies on the Intelligence Committee were so eager to get their hands on this stuff that he personally made the call. I’ve heard it, and by the end he’s as giddy as a schoolgirl at the prospect of a first kiss.

That’s not the end of Schiff’s recently aired dirty laundry. The esteemed congressman has also charged for years now, on any media outlet that would take him, that Russian Television, otherwise known as RT, was a known propaganda arm of Putin and the Kremlin. He and his Uniparty pals like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, moved the U.S. government to classify RT as a “foreign agent”, revoking their credentials and forcing it’s employees to also register as foreign agents. Well, oops. Rep. Schiff himself appeared on RT in 2013…….and here’s the punchline……..to speak about the need for transparency and accountability for the FISA court. Did you get that? Schiff went on, in his words, “an outlet for Putin” and discussed – and criticized – the operations of the FISA court. The FISA court that he now wants locked down and it’s actions under Obama classified. The FISA court responsible for issuing warrants for Russian spies. The FISA court that used a Clinton-funded, fictitious, opposition research document to spy on American citizens. Wow. that’s rich. What’s really telling is that Shameless Schiff still has the balls to go on television attempting to sell his bovine fecal matter. The dots are so close together you could connect them with a gnat’s nose hair.

Schiff is just one of the fools on the ship. Once you add in Andrew “Andy” McCabe, Peter “insurance policy” Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, James Comey, Hillary Clinton and her demonic cabal, and their DeepState and Uniparty pals……you get not a conspiracy theory, but a conspiracy. One of the knee-jerk defenses I get every day is the following: ” If they were so corrupt and conspiratorial, how come they screwed it up so badly and did such a stupid job of it?”……and my response is: Because they’re stupid. Not just dems and repubs, but so called progressives. In order to have the assumptions and beliefs that progressives have, from post-modernism to civics, you have to be either incredibly ignorant of history and human nature, or be so indoctrinated over years of “education” that you are incapable of engaging in critical thinking. The one thing, in my opinion, that all of the fools in our society have in common is a horrid and unblinking lack of curiosity.

Being curious means asking “what?” and “why?”. Why do so many people, from Schiff to Pelosi and Schumer, from Comey to Rod Rosenstein……why are they demonstrably lying? Why did Hillary Clinton think she could rig an entire election? Why are the fool’s gaggle trying so desperately to hide what went on during the Obama presidency? What are they, with American faith in its leaders and institutions in question, trying so feverishly to hide? What did Peter Strzok’s text to Lisa Page saying “POTUS (Obama) wants to know” mean? Why are they all so afraid of Trump’s December 21st, 2017 Executive order, that demands anyone found involved in, or supporting human trafficking and abuse, lose all their assets and be criminally charged? And perhaps the biggest curiosity……..Why are so many people in our media and government screaming so loudly and so determined to ruin and/or end the Trump administration? What has happened since November 9th 2016 that demands that the progressive left burn down America, and in turn Western Civilization’s last bastion? None of the Armageddon-like predictions made by them about Trump have been true…….in fact, it’s been the polar opposite…….so why? Because the people who have been transforming and manipulating our nation and it’s electorate had to break the law and break the public trust to accomplish their aims, and the impossible election of an outsider meant that there would be no President Uniparty to keep it all covered up. But hey, to the fools, that’s nothing compared to “lies” about State of The Union ratings and inauguration attendance, or scoops of ice cream and Diet Cokes……because to them, it’s all about Trump, when in reality, it’s all about us.

Finding Memo

The much-anticipated, and much maligned, House Intelligence Committee memo has been declassified and released. There are two types of response to the 4-page memo. One is that it is no big deal and inconsequential, and the other is that it is indicative of collusion and corruption between a political campaign, the FBI, and the Department of Justice. You can also place the people commenting on the memo into two categories : those that have read and understand it, and those who haven’t and just take CNN/MSNBC at their word. If you’re in the first camp, you are likely outraged and if you’re in the second, you’re likely misinformed and falling for DeepState propaganda.

Let’s sum up what we learned from the memo. Four times before, during, and after the 2016 election, the DOJ and FBI went to the FISA court ( an unconstitutional secret court that allows spying on American citizens without telling them ) to get a warrant to surveil Carter Page, a peripheral and sometime advisor to the Trump campaign. The warrant requests also mention George Papadopoulos as being a target of the infamous Peter Strzok – the FBI guy who wanted an “insurance policy” against Trump being president. No connection between Papadopoulos and Page was made in the requests, though both are mentioned.

According to the memo, the sole reason for the warrant request was the now infamous “Steele dossier” that claimed Trump liked Russian watersports. Here’s the rub: The dossier was a compilation of lies bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign using opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The DOJ and FBI paid ex-foreign spy Christopher Steele, who had been paid by the DNC as well, for the dossier. At the same time, Fusion GPS provided YahooNews with the dossier, and YahooNews printed a story based on it. James Comey and company then took the YahooNews story and the Fusion GPS/Steele dossier to the FISA court as the basis for warrants to spy on the Trump campaign all the way into the White House and beyond. They may still be doing it.

It gets even nastier when you start really digging into it. Bruce Ohr,  Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, was feeding the Steele dossier to the FBI, while not disclosing that his wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS. Everyone involved knew that this was all garbage, yet they pumped it to the FISA court and beyond in order to derail Trump’s chances in the election, and when that failed, they continued to use the dossier to subvert and overturn the Trump presidency. In the larger context, when you take Peter Strzok’s (remember: he was the lead FBI agent in charge of investigating Clinton, investigating Michael Flynn, and investigating “Russian collusion”) text messages to his lover, another member of the Russia investigation, it points to the DOJ and FBI conspiring to let Clinton off the hook and railroad Trump.

What the memo means is that members of the Establishment DeepState used false information, planted news stories, and Clinton-funded opposition research to spy on Donald Trump before and after being elected. In other words, Trump has been right all along. Ask yourself, who and what else? How many American citizens were illegally spied on by Obama’s FBI and DOJ? What other corrupt activities did they undertake in an effort to throw an election? And perhaps most importantly……why is Robert Mueller investigating “Russian collusion”? This is just the beginning of what we’re going to uncover, as the rancid fruit from this poisonous tree is rotting all over the place, and it stinks. Put all of this into the context of everything else that’s gone on in the last 2 years……Obama judges blocking orders, Obama DOJ officials refusing to follow orders, Obama-worshipping Media printing and reporting never-ending fake news ( Operation Mockingbird ), and on and on and on. Connect the dots…….our bureaucratic Establishment and the Obama administration, arm in arm with the DNC and Hillary Clinton, worked – and are still working – in concert to overthrow the will of the people and abuse their civil rights.

In truth, even if you despise Trump, the revelation of this memo certainly shows that – at the highest levels – federal law enforcement has been weaponized and made grossly partisan. Would you want to be under investigation from this crooked DOJ and FBI? Would you have looked the other way if it was Bush’s DOJ and FBI doing this exact same thing to Obama in 2007 and 2008? As Americans we must ensure that we can trust our law enforcement institutions, and I don’t…….do you?
