Biden is Muellered

My mantra throughout the investigation of Spygate has been no excitement without an indictment. My pessimism is warranted by John Durham's track record, and the unlikelihood of getting 12 residents of Washington willing to indict those who lied and spied on President Donald John Trump.

But Bill Barr made a move that gives me some hope.
The Associated Press reported, "Attorney General William Barr has given extra protection to the prosecutor he appointed to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, granting him authority to complete the work without being easily fired.

"Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as a special counsel in October under the same federal regulations that governed special counsel Robert Mueller in the original Russia probe. He said Durham’s investigation has been narrowing to focus more on the conduct of FBI agents who worked on the Russia investigation, known by the code name of Crossfire Hurricane.

"Under the regulations, a special counsel can be fired only by the attorney general and for specific reasons such as misconduct, dereliction of duty or conflict of interest. An attorney general must document such reasons in writing."

I do not have my Barr-to-English dictionary handy, but I believe the attorney general just said, it ain't over till I say it is over.

Barr told the AP that he decided "the best thing to do would be to appoint them under the same regulation that covered Bob Mueller, to provide Durham and his team some assurance that they’d be able to complete their work regardless of the outcome of the election."

He entered the order on October 19 and disclosed it to the House and Senate judiciary committees on Tuesday.

This is a pretty deal because Xiden (as a reader called him) was part of Spygate. Records show he unmasked people the FBI spied on for Obama.

Democrat Jerry Nadler cried foul, telling the AP, "we should not lose sight of the larger picture: in the waning days of the Trump administration, the attorney general has once again used the powers of his office to settle old scores for the president."

Again?

And the appointment pre-dates the election.

Barr has his ducks in a row and Democrats are quacking up.

Everyone's favorite crazy-eyed Democrat, Adam Schiff said, "In an appointment secretly conferred on Durham prior to the election and only disclosed now that Barr concedes there is no evidence of election fraud to overturn the results, Barr is using the special counsel law for a purpose it was not intended: to continue a politically motivated investigation long after Barr leaves office."

Yes, only Democrats should be allowed to run politically motivated investigations.

Lindsey Graham told Politico, "I hope my Democrat colleagues will show Special Counsel Durham the same respect they showed Special Counsel Mueller. This important investigation must be allowed to proceed free from political interference."

This is the logical conclusion of the Mueller probe.

The premise of the Mueller probe was to find out if Donald Trump colluded with Putin to rig the election.

President Trump did not.

Hillary lost fair and square in what may be the last trustworthy presidential election.

But as this false premise of Russian Collusion was used as an excuse to spy on Obama's political opponent, the question became what did the FBI know and when did it know it?

This was a cover-up, and as we were taught in Watergate, the cover-up is worse than the crime.

And the crime itself is pretty heavy.

So there is hope for justice this morning. 

And you can see why the news media went with a fake story about Barr saying there was no election fraud.

UPDATE: I don't need any personal attacks today, OK?

Also, my understanding is the president can de-classify anything he wants regardless of a special counsel appointment.

  1. Well, you know how the saying goes, "You can wish in one hand..."

    This is pure Kabuki Theater. Do-Nothing Durham is the perfect man to give an investigation the appearance of partisan legitimacy.

    The only way Bidet is going down is if it serves the purposes of his swamp creature puppet masters.


    The Dims play to win.

    Trump caught them off guard in 2016 and when he did it again in 2020 they had a backup plan to get the steal. There are just enough corrupt actors in both parties in all levels of government to let them get away with it, too. Until some of these fools wind up like Mussolini and his girlfriend they'll keep doing it.

    "It does not matter how you play the game, it's whether you win or lose." The Demonrats have this tattooed on their foreheads.

    1. Unfortunately I must agree with your assessment. The largest low hanging fruit from the corrupt FBI was and is the lies told under oath to IG investigators by Andrew McCabe, and the DO(N)J refused to obtain an indictment, going so far as to send a letter McCabe's attorneys doing their best Pontius Pilate impression.

      The recent statement by AG Barr re the election fraud was my last straw. Today I deleted my Twitter and Parler accounts. I also deleted links to numerous grifter (no other word fits) websites that trumpet "breaking news" about the next big criminal act to be investigated and other such nonsense. Our country is so corrupt that the Democrats blatantly and openly stole the election for the presidency and there are to be no consequences.

      We're finished and I deeply regret my 24 years of Naval service to the United States of America.

    4. Spot on Dave. My fellow prior service colleagues are saying the exact same thing. How can anyone take the Oath under these criminal circumstances-and one fraught with a socialist takeover in a post-constitutional era.
      This is maddening. Public suppression of opposing political views, persecution of law enforcement and criminal elections.
      This is incompatible - there is no recourse to serve a Xiden administration with its corrupt associations with the chinazi communist party and with Russia. Same for their alignment with Iran.
      Our federal law enforcement, justice and intelligence agencies are corrupt beyond repair.
      If Xiden is installed and appoints Bag Lady as SEC DEF, what are we legitimately supposed to do?
      These are seditious criminals. How do you ethically work with them when our oath is to the constitution via the CIC and chain of command?

      Patriots will retire or resign. Who will volunteer to serve in the future?
      Who would serve in local or state law enforcement when your options for enforcement of laws are suspension or arrest for discharge of duty in self defense?

      We have to win this now.

      I don’t believe in anything other than prior service colleagues, some family, and proven friends. This is an incredibly dangerous time.

      The marxists are inside the chain of command.

    5. Dave nailed it... Recall when Napolitano under the Obama administration in 2008 issued a threat assessment identifying prior service members as a primary domestic threat. It infuriated me at the time.

      I thought it was merely extreme political correctness from leftists. It’s actually much worse than that. They identified the core element of society with the moral compass, technical, leadership and means to organize and oppose the socialist law enforcement, socialist judicial branch, and socialist intelligence surveillance state.

      We are all stunned and asking each other WTF? How did we serve under all this? We gave politicians their sway because we saw them as incompetent clowns anyway, and it was up to us to always be at the ready to stabilize and defend against foreign and internal threats. What was it all for? I mean what was the point of any of it? I would not serve today under any circumstances. I am grateful for all I learned in relationships I had through those years. We will use them to stay vigilant in our own communities and wait for what’s coming as best we can.

      We are a criminal surveillance state at this point where citizens are allowed to operate basically with permission to work in associate in small numbers. We are compromised and corrupted in ways that five Trump administration‘s could not solve. This is a generational problem that the rising generation has shown zero ability to accept responsibility for carrying a free society forward. There is under the mainstream communication only. Nothing in primary or social media is legitimate or factual.

      How TF did it get this broad when 80 million people clearly oppose it?

      We literally will have to retake our Oath and organize to fight this at the most basic neighborhood and community level to start with.

      I regret my service. I only regret more that all of us are not together still to oppose this electoral theft and criminal certification to socialism.

      We will oppose everything put upon us and organize and push back. This is a generational fight. We don’t have a real choice.

  3. John Pennington of The Atlanta Journal uncovered vote fraud that would have kept Carter out of the Georgia Senate in 1962

    After Pennington found ballots cast by at least one dead person, and a man confined to a federal prison, a new election was ordered.

    4. Patrick M. Byrne is the man that created and built a $20 Billion business with overstock.com. He is not a R or a D, claims to be a libertarian.

      Has given numerous interviews the past few weeks, and is feeding data and information to Sidney Powell (he is quite adept at analyzing statistical data). Understands the Deep State as he's had many interactions with them. It's not pleasant what he shares.

      He claims that the 2016 election was supposed to be rigged by computer interference, and further claims to know the person that scuttled the operation. Now I know this sound like "conspiracy theory" that is always summarily dismissed. But stop and think for a minute....

      Remember in 2016 at 2 in the morning or so when all the networks refused to call Midwest states such as PA for hours even though Trump was well ahead and votes had stopped tricking in? Gosh, at that same time this year states in multiple time zones all stopped counting ballots at the same time. Then suddenly a few hours later there was dumps of Biden votes - although not down ballot votes because those filling the needed amount out didn't have time to go down ballot past Senator.

      Yes, looks like 2018 was a trial run, and they had a Plan B in 2020.

      Delete
    5. My working assumption / fantasy about 2016 is that Trump has military intelligence allies (who protect his family amongst other things) who countered the Dem steal algorithms (but probably also insisted on not cheating themselves so as to keep their oaths).

      What could the Dems do? Complain that their hackers had been out-hacked?

      Then they let 2018 happen. Why? Because this epic confrontation about Election 2020 now underway is something that the country needs to happen. For two reasons:
      1. It's a huge sting op, a trap because so many players, domestic and foreign are involved and because the latter means that the military can be called in if necessary and the domestic colluders are now guilty of treason.
      2. The country needs to come together as a representative republic again, and only by going through this huge drama and revelation will they do so.
      Yes, I know this is fanciful.
      But if Trump only gets a technical win and the Deep State continues pretty much as before, then it's more of a defeat than a victory. HOpefully, he sees it this way too and has the balls and planning chops to pull off the biggest Sting operation and counter-coup in recorded political history.
      It might actually succeed in Making America Great Again, which so far has proven elusive despite good stock market and employment numbers up to the disastrous pandemic which, if he had been in a stronger position, he could have handled quite differently and without hundreds of thousands of small businesses shutting down forever.

    6. Snowgander-- I know what you mean when you say a few weeks ago it might've seemed like a kooky idea to wonder if the 2018 gubernatorial races were rigged in those swing states.

      Its been like that for all of us-- evil is so alien to good people and we are slow to awaken to it. This is unrelated, but one thing that only recently dawned on me was that this rampant use of the phrase "community standards" (which always struck me as suspicious) is probably part of a campaign to rehabilitate the word "Communism" from its current pariah status.

      Things are becoming clearer, and the one thing this long-developing stealth Communist coup can't stand up to is sunlight.

      Read the Constitution and then investigate what the head of the DOJ can do. I know it's frustrating. But don't sound like the Dems that keep saying President Trump has trashed the Constitution, while giving not one even semi-valid reason.

  9. At this point, it appears that Don is smoking a big stash of pot.

    First, as others have noted, there is no reason to have any confidence that Durham will indict anyone. And even the FBI Attorney who has plead guilty is likely to get little, if any, jail time whenever he is sentenced.

    Second, Biden’s AG can fire Durham or play any other game she wants with Durham and Biden’s AG will be heralded as a conquering hero by the mainstream news media, including RhINO (formerly Fox) News.

    Meanwhile, Don is so high on Pot he is higher than a kite.

There, that will placate the troops, while he digs his knife into President Trump and America’s back.
