Get FISA out to change the narrative

Some people subscribe to the theory it is better to say “I’m sorry” than “may I”.

I say this as news broke overnight that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation will proceed, according to a person familiar with the meeting.

The meeting between Graham and Whitaker comes as a some senators are pushing legislation to protect Mueller’s job since Whitaker has criticized in the past the sprawl of Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

I believe the Trump administration should take this under advisement and deploy the maxim I cited up top.

Would it not shake the world up if the administration released the original unredacted FISA warrants showing how the Democrats worked with the intelligence agencies both here and abroad to frame Trump and associates with Russian collusion.

It does not need to be an official release, but rather an informed leak followed up by an official announcement stating that while most of the story is quite true and we have documents that support it, the administration does not condone leaks and we demand ….

It changes the narrative and puts Democrats back on the defensive immediately. It also puts the Obama White House squarely in the midst of this scandal.

I’m not sorry to say this, but Mr. President, I say go for it.


Trump’s White House has its own fast and furious program. Enjoy the show.

President Trump wasted little time after the midterms to preview what the next two years will bring to Washington.

In the most public forum — a White House press conference — the President ripped CNN’s correspondent Jim Acosta for brutish behavior towards his press staff.

An hour or so later, he fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Matt Whitaker as Acting AG as announced on Twitter.

“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well,”

A few hours later Acosta’s White House press credentials were pulled for his press conference outbursts.

The Sessions firing created a Democratic firestorm on the future of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, since Whitaker is on record as saying there was a need to choke of Mueller’s funding since the wide-ranging probe is going nowhere.

It’s been a couple of years since we had “Fast and Furious” associated with the White House, but the next two years will be filled with spontaneous acts that will create screaming headlines and draconian reactions in the liberal press.

Take the Sessions firing. So many Democratic leaders and former Obama administration officials came out with “Constitutional crisis” and “crossing a red line” comments on the fate of the Mueller probe that it showed a talking points email blast must have went out to the rank and file to plaster all over Twitter and cable TV.

Let’s see what happens today to wipe out any and all reactions to yesterday’s news. I have a sense that the next two years will be exciting and spellbinding and will change the face of American politics forever.

Divided government doesn’t have to be divisive

Welcome to 2018 AM — after midterms.

The House of Representatives goes to Democratic control, but by a smaller majority than is usually accomplished by the party not in the White House in the midterm election.

The Republicans, however, gained further control of the Senate, which is where many of the ongoing investigations that began in the House of the intelligence agencies will move to in January.

Given that the blue wave was somewhat muted, The Dems should think about bringing in some fresh blood in its leadership roles. Moderates, who will be around in the next 10 years and ran on something more than being anti-Trump. If not, and the plan is to be obstructionist, then we could easily see a reversal in two years.

If the Dem leadership pursues impeachment hearings against President Trump and or Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which will go nowhere since the Republicans control the Senate, then it will be a long, unfruitful two years of gridlock.

Something that the country will endure, but it will not improve the economy or anyone’s lives. The markets like divided government since very little regulation comes out of it, but people’s lives suffer, since little in the way of benefits come to light either.

So we move on and see what can be finished with this session of Congress and more importantly, what Special Counsel Robert Mueller has to say about the 2016 presidential election.

Hatch Act confirms the silence

As I wrote last night “The Team” behind the information drops under the pseudonym QAnon appear to be confirmed to come from inside the White House.

In the first drop in over three weeks the poster rallies the troops with a get out the vote message followed by two PDF documents explaining how the Hatch Act curtails executive branch staff from participating in a federal election. I wrote about this some weeks ago in explaining the silence.

Below are the germane parts from the PDF files cited in the post of the Hatch Act from the Office of Special Counsel, which polices these activities.

The Hatch Act generally applies to employees
working in the executive branch of the federal
government. The purpose of the Act is to maintain
a federal workforce that is free from partisan
political influence or coercion.
May not
use any e-mail account or social
media to distribute, send, or forward content
that solicits political contributions.
Understanding How the Hatch Act Applies to You
May not
engage in political activity — i.e., activity
directed at the success or failure of a political party,
candidate for partisan political office, or partisan
political group — while the employee is on duty, in
any federal room or building, while wearing a
uniform or official insignia, or using any federally
owned or leased vehicle.
The Hatch Act lists the number of intelligence operators — both military and civilian — who operate out of the White House and are employed by the executive branch.
  • Election Assistance Commission
  • Federal Election Commission
  • Office of the Director of National Intelligence
  • Central Intelligence Agency
  • Defense Intelligence Agency
  • National Geospatial Intelligence Agency
  • National Security Agency
  • National Security Council
  • National Security Division (DOJ)
  • Criminal Division (DOJ)
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • Secret Service
  • Office of Criminal Investigation (IRS)
  • Office of Investigative Programs (Customs)
  • Office of Law Enforcement (ATF)
  • Merit Systems Protection Board
  • U.S. Office of Special Counsel
  • Career members of the Senior Executive Service
  • Administrative law judges, administrative appeals
  • judges, and contract appeals board members.

While we have seen many “proofs” over the last year as to QAnon’s proximity to the Oval Office, I believe this post draws the closest link to the Administration.

My first question is: Did Robert Mueller’s staff — who also works out of the Office of Special Counsel — advise and consent on the silence leading up to the midterms?

Surely, the Hatch Act has kept his staff from releasing information, since this independent agency is also subjected to Hatch Act restrictions.

My second and more important question is: Why was the Obama executive branch not prosecuted under the Hatch Act for all its meddling in the 2016 presidential election for all the leaking of bogus stories to further their Russian collusion narrative?

Perhaps more will come on Nov. 11.

Will global peace break out on 11/11?

So what can we expect on Nov. 11th, Veteran’s Day a wonderful day?

[Days Prior]
What a wonderful day!

As I wrote more than a week ago, The White House insiders should be back with communications and drops after the midterm elections. I also believe if this happens it will be further proof for the premise that Q-Anon is part of the administration.

Both President Trump  and Russian leader Putin are scheduled to be in Paris on Nov. 11 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I.

Trump has suggested he will “probably” meet with the Russian leader.

Earlier drops have suggested that the President would not be in the White House when a major announcement is made. I have tried to search the drops, but can seem to find the exact language.

Personally, I’m rooting for the FISA declassified documents to be released, but that’s wishful thinking perhaps.

What about a Russian/US peace allegiance that decimates the President’s biggest pain in the arse NATO? This would save each county trillions of dollars over the next decade alone and fund the wall, tax cuts and the space force. The announcement would also be in keeping with celebrating the armistice.

It would also decimate the left’s “Russia is Evil” mantra and open the door to getting the real information on the Dossier out in due time.

We may get some cryptic information drops once the midterms are done — as I said in earlier posts — to be compliant with the Hatch Act.

Enjoy The Show.
