How the Establishment uses “special counsels”

The Obama administration used the IRS to target their domestic political opponents. AND they used the intelligence agencies as well (“unmasking”, “distributing” and leaking data from the U.S. surveillance apparatus) to target U.S. opponents.

Why has no special counsel ever been appointed, to investigate all that?

Or the Clinton Foundation corruption?

Or the innumerable classified-info leaks of recent months, many likely to be from Obama holdovers in the government?

Trump-Russia has been Fake News from minute one. My first reaction when a special counsel was appointed there was “Fine, let them spin their wheels on nothing”. That was too sanguine of me. It is indeed bad, for a couple of reasons.

First, as it is a witch hunt, they will keep looking until they entrap somebody in the Trump administration into a “process” crime. A la Scooter Libby, in the Plame affair. He ended up in jail, even though it was Richard Armitage who had illegally leaked Plame’s name.

Second and probably more important, it consumes DOJ and FBI resources that could and should be used to look elsewhere. And that’s the point of the thing. Democrats want to make sure no one will look at their horrific scandals.

Having a special counsel on the comparatively scandal-free President Trump, instead of themselves, is a huge coup. As in, coup d’etat against a lawfully elected President.

UPDATE: We could also talk about other types of investigation, such as complaints to the House Ethics Committee. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch asks, “Why the double standard?” against Rep. Devin Nunes.

  • Rep. Devin Nunes chairs the House Intelligence Committee. He blew the whistle on the Obama administration’s illicit “unmasking” of surveillance data. Democrats responded by filing an ethics complaint on him.
  • Rep. Adam Schiff, ranking Democrat of the same committee, has been all over the media for months, possibly leaking classified information (or at least confirming leaked info, improperly). Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint on him.
  • Guess Which the Ethics committee is acting on? And why?

I’ll say why: This is how the U.S. power structure works. By manufacturing (or at least spreading) one narrative; burying another. What you hear about, from investigations and the Controlled Media, is decided behind the scenes. Someone decides which thing you’ll hear about, and they decide because they have the hidden political power and it suits their agenda.

In this case, the House Ethics committee is run by Establishment Republicans. As such, they’re part of The Swamp; they are bedfellows to Democrats and the Deep State. Nunes sinned by bringing out a (true) story that strengthens Trump’s position. They would rather intimidate, mislead or weaken Trump into “playing ball”.

With every Deep State investigation and every Controlled Media “narrative”, you should ask: Why this one, not that other one? And why now?

  1. “The Obama administration used the IRS to target their political opponents.”

    Lie. Multiple investigations by conservative congressional bodies with the power of subpoena confirm your lie.

    “Having a special counsel on the comparatively scandal-free President Trump”

    Lol saying something doesn’t make it true. Sorry Charlie. Its clear that at the minimum known Russian operatives had contacts with Trump campaign officials who tried to hide it.

    Why do you want this hidden?
    It’s also clear that Russia has been caught forging documents they hacked explaining why the FBI didn’t charge Clinton.

    (Read the whole thing and explain why there shouldn’t be any investigation if you dare)

    This harkens me back to your own words:.

    Will you hold yourself to your own standards? Or will you explain your lies and mistruths away?

  2. James Hacker: How am I going to explain the missing documents to “The Mail”?
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well, this is what we normally do in circumstnces like these.
    James Hacker: [reads memo] This file contains the complete set of papers, except for a number of secret documents, a few others which are part of still active files, some correspondence lost in the floods of 1967…
    James Hacker: Was 1967 a particularly bad winter?
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: No, a marvellous winter. We lost no end of embarrassing files.
    James Hacker: [reads] Some records which went astray in the move to London and others when the War Office was incorporated in the Ministry of Defence, and the normal withdrawal of papers whose publication could give grounds for an action for libel or breach of confidence or cause embarrassment to friendly governments.
    James Hacker: That’s pretty comprehensive. How many does that normally leave for them to look at?
    James Hacker: How many does it actually leave? About a hundred?… Fifty?… Ten?… Five?… Four?… Three?… Two?… One?… *Zero?*
    Sir Humphrey Appleby: Yes, Minister.

  3. Mike, really? Power of supoena confirm the lie? Like the supoena used on Lois Lerner where she pled the fifth? And later testimony showed she did, indeed, slow down the tax exempt status of conservative groups? That lie?

  4. Lie. Multiple investigations by conservative congressional bodies with the power of subpoena confirm your lie.

    Nope.

    Because, Mikey, as you have screamed, the fact that there were investigations means that a crime was committed.

    You just screwed yourself over and exposed your own hypocrisy.

    And that is why we are laughing at you. No one here believes that you have any principle other than power, but you desperately and shriekingly try to hamstring us with invocations of our own.

    Will you say that Harry Reid was a lying piece of shit, mikey?

    If not, then you are irrelevant. Forever.

  5. NDT, be in touch! text or email….my info is unchanged.

    Lie. Multiple investigations by conservative congressional bodies with the power of subpoena confirm your lie.

    mike, you’re delusional. Multiple investigations have confirmed massive examples or evidence of improprieties. Now you know. Therefore, the next time you try to say the opposite, YOU will be lying.

    at the minimum known Russian operatives had contacts with Trump campaign officials who tried to hide it.

    Correction: At the maximum. The very maximum. And “contacts”? Yeah, like “How are your kids? I hope we will be able to improve U.S.-Russia relations, if you win.”

    You think Hillary didn’t have those contacts – and much much more? Like when she was Secretary of State, transferring Uranium One to Russia in exchange for Clinton Foundation cash donations? ROFL

    “Rejecting the nonsense”, mike, means rejecting YOUR nonsense. (Among others’ 😉 )

  6. “mike, you’re delusional. Multiple investigations have confirmed massive examples or evidence of improprieties”

    Lol!!! Backtracking already?

    It’s true they found “improprieties” and they found the IRS targeted both conservatives and liberals groups.
    However there is zero evidence after years of trying to show Obama used the IRS to target opponents. ALL investigations said the opposite.

    Please retract, or does truth mean nothing to you?
    Your words:
    “Each day, let us dedicate ourselves anew to rejecting the nonsense. And to offering truth, in its place.”

  8. littlelettermikey, the fascist is practicing the art of DemonizingRat political “truth” invention.

    The purpose of DemonizingRat “truth” telling is to humiliate those who see through them. The less the DemonizingRat “truth” telling corresponds to reality the better. When people do not respond with the truth when bombarded with DemonizingRat lies, they lose. The purpose of DemonizingRat lies is to force people to cooperate with their evil. That is the soul of propaganda. It doesn’t persuade, it doesn’t convince, it doesn’t inform, it silences.

    The DemonizingRats and littlelettermikey, the fascist want to emasculate society, because a cowed society is easier to control. littlelettermikey, the fascist’s goal is to wear down resistance to his lies.

    littlelettermikey, the fascist can not be reformed because he is formless. He stands for nothing, so he stands for anything which promotes his conceit.

    Well, here is a little something for littlelettermikey, the fascist to worry over. The DemonizingRats may have pushed their chain of lies far enough up the hill that it has become a weight that will pull them down. The FISA court has been responding to FOIA requests which may just expose the corruption of the Obama White House, the Obama DOJ, the Obama State Department as the cause of everything they are trying to pin on the Trumpsters. That is to say, Benghazi may rise from the ashes. Lois Lerner’s exploits may expose the IRS cover-up. The unmasking actions discovered by the FOIA of the FISA Court will result in the small handful of names capable of leaking and covering up and a Grand Jury can order lie detector tests of even Obama himself.

    littlelettermikey, the fascist and the DemonizingRats have been playing games of cover-up. Now, littlelettermikey, the fascist and the DemonizingRats had better pray that Mueller doesn’t scratch the scab of Obama era cover-ups and the manipulation through leaking by the “deep state.”
