See, Republicans Do Compromise! We Have Our First Compromised President

It’s nice to see the president get a break from this whole Russia collusion thing, so he can collude with Russia. President Donald J Trump alone in a room with a former KGB agent? What a disgrace. Maybe we will find out the truth about today’s summit someday …from the Kremlin. But, hey, at least Trump’s latest tweet barrage made me laugh. One day soon these tweets will be translated as: Why didn’t Obama stop my collusion? It happened under his watch?! Thanks Obama, I thought this was America! #SomeCollusion. Watching the last 72-hours of the Mueller machinations vs our counter-reality has reached Theater of the Bizarre levels of absurdity. Hippogroan? Oh, and this morning I caught five minutes of Neil Cavuto on Fox. Wow, talk about starting your day off far right… I am soooo done with this shit, and you should be too.

This morning Neil Cavuto interviewed Dubya’s Attorney General, Michael Mukasey. Whereas it was nice to see Fox go five minutes without citing the Peter Strozk text, it was an astoundingly low moment in U.S. media history. Kidding, it’s typical. Par for the coarseness? Instead of covering recent events, Mukasey and Cavuto discussed how Mueller’s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence officers was “beyond the scope of Mueller’s mandate.” So *cough* the investigation into Russia’s meddling into our election should not involve investigating Russia’s meddling into our election? Really? Is your distraction machine finally going off the rails on a crazy train? Oh, and Bush’s minions should ostracized, not interviewed.

Then this dynamic duo pointed out how: ‘there’s not a shred of evidence of Trump colluded with Russia.’ Hmmm. The actual news within Mueller’s latest actions involves a person (with constant access to senior Trump officials), who may well have colluded with Russia. Stop lying. We know that both team Trump and Russia attempted collusion. Did they pull it off is the only remaining question, aka, my first collusion joke (8/17):

Then Cavuto and Mukasey focused on the inconvenient timing of the release of this information, because of the pending Helsinki meeting between Putin and Trump.

Let me boil this down for you traitors who call yourselves patriots: our election was hacked by the Russians! If President Trump has knowingly done nothing to protect the integrity of our next election then I am calling for his immediate impeachment. That’s the takeaway, not the garbage you’ve been spewing since 9/11.

And Joe Biden claims Mitch McConnell stopped the public release of possible Russian interference during the lead up to the 2016 election, so who are you going to believe in these trying times, a Republican or a Democrat? The fact you have to think about that question means you are not an informed citizen, but rather complicit with the catastrophic decision to elect a despot.

Two days ago I watched a good chunk of the Stzrok hearings, live, just as I did Hillary’s Benghazi testimony back in the day. Why are these people the only folks dragged in front of the inquisitors? How upside down has reality become that every real scandal gets a pass while we endlessly perseverate on crapola? Watergate aside, all the most consequential scandals of our time never even had their day in court. By pleading the fifth, Scooter Libby (now pardoned by Trump) stopped any investigation into Cheney and Bush. The ‘Mute Marine’ Oliver North stopped any investigation into Iran Contra. Torture as well as the bevvy of lies that led up to the invasion of Iraq were essentially pardoned by President Barack Obama. Never again! These people should hang in the public square, and yet somehow none of them are even hauled before congress. Really?

How did we get here? Republican gerrymandering? Blatant liberal ineptitude? Regardless, here’s my summary of the last 20 years of congressional investigations:

Senator L.Luthor (R-Al): Aquaman, you are suspected of calling fish away from prominent commercial fishing areas for the purpose of, as you say, ‘saving the world from evil.’ What about the fishermen who went home empty handed that day? Did they have any say in your reckless and unilateral actions?

Congressman B. Manta (R-NE): Batman, you hung a man off a seven story building to get information that led to the foiling of Liam Neeson’s plot to poison Gotham City’s water supply. Are you even aware that the man you hung off that building is in therapy now? Today he can’t hold down a job with either Penguin or Joker’s gang. You didn’t think about that before your brazen actions, did you Batman? Calling the next witness, Commissioner Jim Gordon. What did he know and when did he turn on the bat signal?

When is the Legion of fucking Doom going to be brought in for questioning? Most Republicans couldn’t go on the record for 11 minutes, let alone 11 hours. Because their neurons go to 11? Vinyl Tap? What kind of a world do we live in that these known criminals are never held accountable? For his war crimes and a fear of being arrested on the tarmac, our 43rd president can’t even visit other parts of the western world. And Trump’s London protests are just the beginning of his end. So the Hague would have a field day with our Republican criminals, but it doesn’t raise to the level of questioning by our congress?

Are we heading for a Trump subpoena? No. The Republicans will change the rules. A sitting president can no longer be held accountable, and that person can stay in power as long as deemed necessary. And the ‘freedom people’ will not see the inherent contradictions with our founding fathers’ vision. Why? Because.They.Are.Idiots. The Dems are also complicit in this sad police-state of affairs. They are finally realizing the score, but it’s waaaay too late. Civility got us nowhere. I have been talking about this shit for decades until I am blue in the polling booth. In the immortal words of the inventor Archytas of Tarentum, screw this! If global warming gets any worse Canada will start to look more hospitable. Trudeau dat.

    What really happened? The Obama State department colluded with FBI to plant spies inside the Trump campaign who encouraged members of Trump’s team (unsuccessfully) to commit crimes and engage in questionable action that would later be investigated.

    It’s more than “the Strzok text.” Hundred of his texts (sent on government machines and on government paid time) showed a blatant bias for Hillary and against Trump.

    Oh yeah, on a side note, did president Obama interfere with the Israeli election? Should Obama be charged with crimes against the nation of Israeli.

    All of this nonsense is a part of the “RESIST, NEVER TRUMP” movements that refuse to accept the real reasons for Trump’s victory. They keep seeking any way to invalidate and/or destroy his presidency. It’s all that progressives have. They’re platform:
    1) Big centralized government; entertainment, media; and business; Open Borders, 2) multiculturalistic dissection of Americanism; 3) Free college, healthcare, housing, etc. and 3) Abortion just isn’t working for them anymore.

    There doubling down on anti-Trump, and unless the economy tanks or their anti-Trump mobs take to violence, they will lose.

      The liberal platform sucks; their leaders aren’t remotely clear or concise. Even Obama nuanced himself to death. While most issues are complex Americans, left and right, are not horribly bright. Having said that, I am still flummoxed we have a supermajority to the backdrop of a group who never seems to be right about anything, ever. I did not start out as an all or none thinker, but in this one area (at least since 9/11) it’s hard to find any merit in your party whatsoever.

        Trump may talk some crazy off the cuff bullshit, but (unlike most others) he gave us a clear platform, and whether you agree with his platform or not, he’s sticking to it. For a politician, that’s the most important area of truth that I’m concerned with.
        1) cut regulations
        2) cut taxes (admittedly I would have cut them much differently)
        3) Re-negotiate trade deals
        4) Build the wall–no toleration of illegal immigration
        5) list of 25 supreme court justices
        6) repeal and replace Obamacare
        etc.

        Compare this with politicians who tell the voters what they want to hear (lie) before getting elected and then change their position after they get elected. “After the election, I’ll have more flexibility.” Obama–“Being a Christian, I believe that marriage is a SACRED union between one man and one woman” “Forcing people to buy healthcare in order to address the problem of the un-insured is like forcing people to buy a house in order to address the problem of homelessness,” and everybody’s favorite, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.”

        I agree with most of Trump’s political goals, and I trust him to do everything in his power to accomplish those goals. I have no idea what the goals of the Democrats are, and I don’t trust any them. (By the way I don’t trust the majority of Republicans to follow through with their promises either.)

            latest I.G.report states that every single one (except for 4) of Clinton’s 30,000 private server emails were hacked by a foreign agent that is not Russia. Should we consider this an attack against our nation? Perhaps we should appoint a special counsel to investigate. Why isn’t the FBI or the “patriotic” Democrats making as big a deal about these hacked emails as they are about the Russian hacked DNC?

            After interviewing Lisa Page, Republican John Ratcliff said that Page had been much more cooperative than Strzok. She offered lawmakers “plausible answers” and “plausible explanations.” “In many cases she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say as opposed to what Agent Strzok, who thinks that we’ve all misinterpreted his own words on any text message that would be negative.”

            But to get a Democrat to admit bias in the Hillary investigation is like getting Putin to admit tampering with the U.S. elections.

            P.S. Face it Zano, the “insurance policy” IS the phony Russia collusion investigation.

              Who is denying personal bias? We have all chosen our sides. This is an extreme situation. It comes back to what I said originally, the intelligence communities already had enough to hang this clown before he ever sat in the Oval Office. I just hope there’s not many folks anywhere in positions of authority still defending Trumpism. Show me evidence of bias within the formal processes of the FBI or admit this is a distraction from the collapse of a presidency. Meanwhile there will be no fair trial for ass-clown. This is a compromised president and not just, likely compromised to Russia, he is certainly cognitively compromised, although the baseline in the GOP is so low it’s tough to tell the difference. 25th amendment time? Reagan’s dementia was hidden much better than this man’s open mental illness. Gives me an idea for a spoof bit, Trump Transported To The Orion System For Fair Hearing. I guess the time is now for the government to release its alien files.

                “Intelligence communities already had enough to hang this clown”–B.S. then why do we still not see this evidence. If they can’t present the evidence then it shows that the agents planted in the Trump campaign were done for political reasons.

                “bias within formal processes”– Strzok changed the wording of Comey’s memo form “gross negligence” to “extreme carelessness.” You do realize that gross negligence is a crime.
                Strzok investigated and interviewed Hillary Clinton with the prejudiced purpose to exonerate her. Strzok also interviewed General Flynn and found that he had lied to investigators. I could go on and on. I already have given you this information.

                The other side presents clear evidence–the facts presented in the IG reports–of bias within the investigations of both Hillary and Trump.

                The facts provided from the IG reports show that the most probable reality is that the Obama State Department used loyalists within the Intelligence community to protect Hillary Clinton because Obama himself used her private server illegally. This same server has been hacked (probably by China among others). Obama administration planted agents within Trump’s campaign to dig up and encourage illegal and unethical activity so that they could have justification for their investigation–or the “insurance policy” in case Trump wins.

                It’s all pretty obviously spelled out for us to anyone who want to see the truth.

                “Intelligence community already had enough to hang this clown before he took office.” That is an assumption which you are forced to make in order to hold your position. There is no evidence to support this. On May 19, 2017 (two days after the Mueller investigation began) Strzok texts “You and I both know the odds are nothing. If I thought it was likely, I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern that there’s no big there there.”

                So Strzok didn’t seem to think they had enough to hang this guy even well after his presidency began. So on what basis did they gain the right to plant agents into his campaign a year earlier? Good questions for unbiased truth seekers.

                    Soooo in an unprecedented move the FBI released the entire FISA warrant for Carter Page. A clear attempt to shut people up. Don’t worry, it won’t. Now back to my old prediction, after Trump’s fall, we need to go after Nunes. My dismay with chairman Nunes came into focus today as the FBI just debunked every corner of his infamous memo. Kidding, it came into focus the day he released that crapola. Is it just a coincidence that the champion for your cause on the house intelligence committee is a lying sack of shit? One who arguably just committed treason? I am kind of shocked Trey Gowdy signed off on the Nunes’ memo. He is usually a straight shooter. He’s shooting in the wrong direction all the time, like any other republican, but at least it’s straight. The FBI thought Steele was credible but broke off the relationship after he leaked it to Mother Jones. So the dossier had little to do with the FISA warrant, or the extensions, but probably should have (aka my old theory). You do know that Nunes was also running the findings of the investigation to Trump, right? So you believe the dossier triggered the investigation and that it’s false, post redacation time we will find the Dossier is true, but not used. See the pattern again? Works every time. I always wonder how much evidence has to mount before your ilk will start to actually cover the news, but sadly no such thresholds exists.

                      Instead of telling me how something has been debunked, please just tell me what fact I have presented that has ever turned out to be false. It may have happened. I’d like to know. I can’t recall that you have ever done that. For example, my latest rant started when you challenged to “show me evidence of bias of the formal processes of the FBI or admit that this is a distraction.” So I showed you evidence. You also state that the intelligence community “already had enough evidence to hang this clown before he ever took the oval office” and I showed you evidence that that statement is false. You didn’t respond to any of the evidence I presented.

                      Your main premise is the “faulty” way this whole Russia investigation started, which you claim was the Dossier (that Hillary wrote herself from a private unprotected server in Benghazi). Aspects of the advent of the investigation came to light today and more of will be revealed post the Mueller report. To summarize your version of events: much of it is false and what is deemed true will prove inconsequential. Sorry, I have officially given up on Hannity hatched conspiracy theories. “Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof.” – Carl Sagan.

                      Of note: the investigation started long before Trump was president, so was this bias toward a future nominee for president? And all four judges for the FISA warrant and the extensions were republican.

                      You’re all over the place. The Dossier’s true but not the basis of the investigation, which started a long time before the Dossier, Nunes is liar like all republicans, the 4 judges were republican, but they weren’t liars.

                      Calm down, Zano. It will be ok.

                      I just (skim) read the 412 pages of the 4 FISA applications. Luckily most of it was redacted. What’s most striking is that each one is (I think) identical. For example in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th application, it says “The target of this application is an agent of a foreign power,” “FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government” and “probable cause that Page knowingly engage in clandestine intelligence activities.” But there is no new information obtained from the previous 3 months of investigation that supported that position. Four applications with no new information provided from the previous investigation that supports their position.

                      I think by month 9 of secret surveillance of Page, the FBI would have known for certain whether or not he was a secret agent, so why is he not in jail? Better still, after 9 months of finding nothing to support their original thesis, why did Rod Rosenstein sign his name confirming that “FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government. Based on the foregoing facts and circumstance, the FBI submit that there is probable cause to believe that Page knowingly engage in clandestine intelligence activities for ——–“redacted.

                      The FISA warrant started in Sept/Oct.–I don’t know exactly the motive, but I imagine it was a way to give Democrats information about Trump’s campaign–kinda like those involved with running the debate had given Hillary the questions in advance.

                      As far a the judges being republicans, I don’t trust anybody based on their party. The republican party hates trump and did everything they could to destroy him. FISA seems to be a rubber stamp thingy. The judges might not even read it. On the application though, I can find no mention of Clinton, the DNC, or even the words “opposition research.” The wording seems purposefully vague.

                      BASICALLY–we’ve been waiting for 4 FISA warrants and a year and a half of special counsel, and they keep suggesting the american people that something big is about to be revealed to prove Trump a traitor or compromised–if you’ve got the goods on Page or Trump then show us the goods, otherwise stop with the Trump/Russia collusion B.S. and lets move on.

                      The FISA applications state there is “probable cause to believe Page knowingly engage in clandestine intelligence activities” and “FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government,” and many other serious allegations. James Comey, Sally Yates, Dana Boerts, Andrew McCabe, and Rod Rosenstein signed there names to these documents testifying to judges of their knowledge of the truth of the information presented so that they could gain legal permission to suspend Carter Page’s constitutional rights.

                      At the very least, we now know that they lied when signing their names. Without any evidence, you talk tough about “executing”our president; but we now know that Comey, Yates, Boerts, McCabe, and especially Rosenstein committed serious crimes in their gaining the four FISA warants–but somehow you claim the FBI has now “debunked” right wing conspiracy theories about FBI misconduct.

                      I have read the application, and I have no idea what you are talking about. Have you listened to Carter Page talking about this issue? Carter Page is a human being, a U.S. citizen like you and me. He’s either lying and should be in prison, or else they all lied on the application and should be in prison. Which is it? If the Left and the mainstream media keep putting their heads in the sand in refusal to address this obvious abuse of power, then they are as guilty as those people who would lie in order to deny citizens of their constitutional rights for the mere purpose of advancing their political ends.

You supported or at least turned a blind eye to Bush-Cheney torture and you supported the Patriot Act, which was a shot of testosterone for NSA wiretapping. So post 9/11 the Feds are listening to just about everyone now and need a much lower threshold of cause. That has nothing to do with this case, Page would’ve been tapped in any point in U.S. history. So you’re saying they should make an exception for a good patriotic citizen who says he met secretly with a variety of Russian spies, during a time of known election meddling, while working for Trump? Really? This is the constitutional hill you’re going to die on? Thanks for making such a principled stand for all of us average Joes. At the very least the Russians tried to use Page, so what is your rational for not wanting to find out what the ruskies were up to? Are you colluding with Russia? Besides, we know the investigation did not start with Carter Page or the dossier, it started with George Padapawhatsas who claims trump had dirt on Hillary via the Russians (aka, collusion).

                      You can make a flimsy argument that the FBI had “reasonable cause” for the first FISA warrant, but explain to me how on the fourth (and 9 months of secret surveillance of Page) FISA application after providing no new evidence the FBI agents signed their names to a FISA application that states among other thing “FBI has reasonable cause to believe Page to be a Russian agent.” At this point, the FBI knows for a fact whether Page an agent of Russia or not. At the point of the fourth application, I can find only two explanation–either Page is guilty of a serious crime or the FBI agents lied in order to convince a judge to give FBI the permission to legally violate Page’s constitutional rights. If Page committed a crime, why hasn’t he been arrested?

                      Listen to Page now. He’s talking pretty bold about the FBI lying on the application so that they could justify spying on Trump.

                      Obviously the FBI lied to get the warrant. Wouldn’t you agree. I cannot prove their motives, but I can say that any agent who would lie to a judge to get permission to legally deprive a person of their constitutional rights deserves jail.
                      Wouldn’t you agree?

                      I don’t care to make any argument on this, flimsy or otherwise. You should look on eBay for a used argument. This is a summary of my arguments with republicans over the years:
                      “Bush is torturing people!” Mick Zano (2006). “We tortured some folks.” Barack Obama (2016). “Bush is lying us into a war with Iraq!” Mick Zano (2002). The Downing Street Memos are leaked proving Bush lied us into war with Iraq (2005).
                      Conclusion: No investigations, no executions, no consequences of any kind.

                      Now here’s a typical Pokey/Hannity/rightwing propaganda-style scandal:
                      “Colonel Mustard with the candlestick in the library. No wait, wait, it’s Professor Plum in the conservatory with the revolver. Wait, Mrs Peacock, where was that bitch when this happened? …with the lead pipe. No, really? There was no lead pipe? Um, we still have some questions for Colonel Mustard.”

                      All I can tell you Zano is that I have looked into this issue with an honest desire for the truth–I began from the Russian Collusion perspective and I found some compelling arguments for, but they didn’t go deep enough. So I simply sought all relevant facts and followed them wherever they led.

                      Most people are not motivated by truth, but rather political power/rightness/personal bias. And many times politics defeats the truth. Perhaps that will happen this time

                      It takes real integrity to choose truth no matter where truth takes you. I’ve always said and still say, if the facts show that Trump made a deal with Russia to compromise our Democracy, then I would want him punished severely. But I ask you, if the facts reveal that Democratic actors made deals with FBI and Justice department to compromise democracy, wouldn’t you want them punished?
