Law Barr Assigns U.S. Attorney in Connecticut to Review Origins of Russia Inquiry -

View attachment 759224

And just like that, out come all the usual suspects to scream bloody murder over a prosecutor with an immaculate record the second that he's appointed to do something that they don't like. None of these people had any fucking clue who Durham even was before yesterday, and I'd bet good money that even fewer of them could tell you who Whitey Bulger was, or how Durham was even important to that investigation.
Tipped their hand rather hard on that one didn't they? Rule our way, or you're in Trump's pocket.

I really am holding onto the hope these are desperate last ditch moves. I worry people just perceive it as more political corruption and fighting, and the Dem strategy of acting like fuckheads is working to make people think everyone involved is a moron, not just them.

Remind anyone of that gaffe when someone printed "Trump's nomination of {nominee space holder} to the Supreme Court is a serious blow to women's rights" as a headline, forgetting to actually put Kavanaugh's name in the spot, proving they were going to run that headline no matter who he picked?

To be fair there are tons of morons in politics. Still, moron does not necessarily equal evil.

They would have boilerplate for this shit. Fucking hell.

I had to look up that info myself. But am I the only one who gets moist over the idea he's going to have another crack at the investigators who threw innocent people in prison to protect Whitey?

Of course they are. Have you noticed how intensely they've been on the defense lately? You see the "Republicans Pounce!" framework in almost every other headline these days. The Democratic party has become completely "locked-in" with lunatics like AOC and Tlaib and that other chick who won't stop running her mouth. Pelosi has completely lost control and tried to cover for them too much at the onset, and now they're stuck trying to defend the increasingly crazy shit they keep spouting, and that's getting harder and harder to cover up as the latter two keep getting closer and closer to just blurting out, "Fuck the Jews!" by accident.

This is how the Democratic party will drift further into anti-Semitism and related pathologies, a direction it was heading anyway due to identity politics. It will now be pulled in more quickly because the leadership will keep defending the anti-Semitic nonsense they keep spouting, and it's only getting worse.

Also in play is the "socialist punk" wing of the Democrat Party, who believe that the Democrats benefit by goading Republicans into responding to outrageous statements so they can be castigated as racists, sexists, Islamophobes, etc. They think the Left should lean on its hegemonic control of the media and create opportunities to paint Republicans as bigots by luring them into "attacking" female and minority politicians who say outrageous things. They think that they need to use media power before they lose it, because that is coming.

What they don't realize is that the media's "Republicans Pounce!" framing of these stories is not aggressively hurting Republicans. It's a last-ditch effort to protect Democrats from themselves. It's a defense play, not offense. The purpose of the "Republicans Pounce!" framework is to firewall a Democrat and make it unnecessary for other Democrats to respond to their comments or condemn them. It's the media giving itself permission not to ask other Democrats questions about a fellow party member's idiocy.

In the click-bait era, "Republicans Pounce!" framing leads to headlines and Tweets that steer casual readers away from stories that damage Democrats. They think it's just a partisan food-fight and move along to the next story. A sea of "Republicans Pounce!" stories is not a sign that Democrats are on offense and making political progress against the GOP. It's a sign that the media is working overtime to protect the Democrats from shooting themselves in both feet with a 12-gauge.

The "socialist punks" in the Democratic Party don't understand that, so they think they're "winning" because their loudest, dumbest, ugliest members get to go on insipid talk shows and shriek about how Republicans are racists and sexists for criticizing them. Meanwhile, Democratic leaders are forced to grimace through endless apologetics and trudge through countless smokescreens and casual voters increasingly worry that the Democrat Party has become hostile and alien to them.

Media organizations like CNN are reaching the limit of how much water they're willing to carry for these idiots, and these same media organizations are barely keeping themselves held together as it is. Just look at how quickly this story turned around. All we heard for years was how the FBI and DOJ could do no wrong and Mueller is coming blah, blah, blah, and then the instant that the investigation turns around to face the other direction (As far as the public-facing stories are concerned, anyways) suddenly the entire DOJ is politically weaponized and needs to die. That's not offense, it's defense.

In essence: They've all been putting up a decent fight, but they've been on the defensive for awhile now, and all of the lines are starting to wear a bit thin. No amount of strategic leaking or cover-stories or "Republicans Pounce!" framing is going to stop what's coming down the line, and they're slowly building into a panic as they realize what's happening, not the least of which because many of these news organizations are directly implicated in this entire fiasco. 2019-2020 are going to be the Cover Your Ass Olympics for the news media.

*Prints out this post, rolls it into a joint and smokes it*

Thanks man, that'll hold me for a couple weeks I think. I just don't know where else to look for sane analysis, even the right leaning sites make things look bad for repubs, with Barr calling Jr to testify (wtf is that about) and seemingly dragging out the collusion nonsense even longer...

Because the Trump Tower meeting is a linchpin for the Collusion narrative. Burr's already gone on the record as saying there was no collusion anyways. Warner tried to implicate Burr in doing something dirty or illegal in talking to the Trump White House back in 2017 about an intel briefing the Gang of Eight received concerning the FBI's Russia probe. Apparently the Trump White House was supposed to be kept completely in the dark about that Russia probe briefing the Gang of Eight received, and when Burr went and told the White House about this briefing, Mark Warner and the Democrats screamed that he'd done something abhorrent.

I sincerely doubt that Burr's subpoenaing Don Jr. to run over the Trump Tower meeting for the 11 millionth time, and that it's more-so about defending his actions where informing the White House about the Gang of Eight is concerned. Warner and the Democrats are claiming that Burr went to the White House to tip off the Trumps, but they already knew. That's exactly what I expect that Don Jr. is going to say. This isn't a continuation of the collusion narrative, it's just a CYA-style clean-up for Burr.

Could you explain what he did for me? I tried looking it up myself and all I understood was that he somehow was involved with clearing out entanglements between the Boston police/FBI and the Irish mob, and something about the 1968 murder trial documents.

I got the sense that what he did was instrumental in clearing out/eradicating corription/collusion, but I'd like to know EXACTLY what he did.

Yeah, but this is just another chance for jr to not remember something correctly then we gotta have perjury investigations and trials and the Dems just keep kicking the can down the road until they have the power to make it go away...

Barr is trying to stay "respectable" and "nonpartisan" but it's a fixed game. The Dems will say he's in Trump's pocket regardless.

I found an article summing up some of the stuff Durham did.

Cautiously optimistic — that’s how I feel about U.S. Attorney John Durham being put in charge of getting to the bottom of the failed FBI-Deep State coup against President Trump.

Maybe you’re pessimistic, concerned that the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut might turn out to be another one of these disappointments like Jeff Sessions’ boys from Chicago and Utah who haven’t really done any investigation of the investigators.

But look on the bright side. Close your eyes and think about where crooked G-man/gangster Zip Connolly is this morning — in a state prison in Florida, age 78, about 10 years into his 40-year sentence for an organized-crime hit.

I know, it’s a state bid, but Durham got the ball rolling in Boston, pinning a federal racketeering rap on him back in 2002.

Ya think any of those swamp creatures in D.C. are reading up on Durham’s curriculum vitae today? Anybody named Comey? Brennan? Clapper?

There was a lot of chatter on talk radio Monday about how the FBI framed the four guys in Boston in 1965 for a gangland murder in Chelsea they didn’t commit. Bob Mueller was briefly the acting U.S. attorney in the 1980s and he did nothing to get them out, even though literally everyone in the city knew the G-men had railroaded them, to protect, not Whitey Bulger, but a prized new snitch named Joe Barboza.

It’s all very involved, but here’s what matters today: The case against the four imprisoned innocent men started unraveling in the late 1990s. Hitman Johnny Martorano told the feds in Boston who had really killed the gangster Teddy Deegan (as if they didn’t know already!). Barboza had even told Martorano, and another guy named Dido, how he would frame the four innocent guys, which he then did.

John Durham had just been appointed to clean up the two generations of corruption in the Boston FBI office. He knew how corrupt the Boston agents were — Whitey’s partner Stevie Flemmi said last year under oath that they were paying off at least six local G-men. Some have speculated they may have had as many as 10 on the pad.

The cops were so corrupt that Durham set up shop at the federal courthouse in Worcester, so that … well, anything could have happened in Boston, right? It already had, over and over again.

Anyway, after the local prosecutors had Martorano’s testimony nailed down, they went to Durham. He’s the one who started the process of righting the terrible wrong of 35 years in prison after the FBI frame. It took years, but the four men or their estates ended up winning a civil judgment of $102 million.

(Mueller, by the way, was FBI director by then, and Judge Nancy Gertner had to threaten him with contempt of court to get the Bureau to finally release the exculpatory evidence that proved they had been framed. She called Mueller’s attempts to stonewall the court “chilling,” which was an understatement.)

Some have complained that Durham should have put more crooked G-men behind bars. But the statute of limitations was a problem, and Zip Connolly’s partner in crime, John “Vino” Morris, had cut a deal, even though he’d set up at least two guys to be whacked out by Whitey Bulger. (Maybe that’s why Vino got promoted to director of the FBI training academy in Quantico — this latest corruption by the G-men is just a continuation of the Bureau’s sordid history.)

Durham also took down a crooked state cop named Schneiderhan — maybe if this other gig doesn’t work out, we can get him back here to handle the latest “Troopergate.”

In his closing arguments in the Zip Connolly racketeering trial, Durham reminded the jury of the crooked fed’s first payoff — a stolen 2-carat $5,000 diamond ring his paymaster Whitey had given him.

I remember that story well. One day at the courthouse, I rode down to the lobby in the elevator with Zip. I started asking him, in real snarky terms, what his favorite song was by Gary Lewis and the Playboys?

“She’s Just My Style”? “Sure Gonna Miss Her”? “Everybody Loves a Clown”? “Count Me In”? “Save Your Heart for Me”?

I think Zip figured out where I was going with this line of patter, so just as the elevator door opened, I yelled at him:

“Oh no, Zip, I’ll bet your favorite Gary Lewis and the Playboys song is ‘This Diamond Ring.’”

He ran outside to the microphones and started screaming at the other reporters. It was maybe my favorite day ever on Northern Avenue.

I’d like to ride down an elevator in a federal courthouse with an indicted G-man one more time. If only John Durham comes through, I’m sure I could think of a lot of songs to ask, say, James Comey about.
The gist of it is that Durham was investigating how the feds conducted themselves during their investigation of Whitey Bulger. Specifically, he wanted to know why they threw four innocent men in prison (some of whom died behind bars) in order to protect a snitch.

If I were sitting at a defense table, what type of prosecutor would I hope to be facing?

Definitely a Mueller, not this guy:

I have a hunch that when the idea to appoint Durham was run by Trump, he immediately knew the guy's serious image & pop-culture cred would be huge in helping win the public perception.

Mueller's got a reputation for withholding exculpatory evidence. If I was the AG, I wouldn't trust him to prosecute a convenience store robbery.

He looks like he just realized he had some sauce on his mustache and is trying to suck it off without looking like a sped. And honestly, I think he succeeded.

This is a skill aquired from decades of drinking countless cups of coffee in an official work environment.

No judge or colonel likes it when someone is presenting a case or briefing, while they're standing there savoring their flavor-saver, or are sharing it with the entire desk/table.

How does this differ from the Horowitz investigation precisely?
Sorry, almost forgot to reply to this. This article clears that question up pretty nicely. Cates has been alarmingly accurate in the past, and he really doesn't get as much credit as he deserves for his commentary.

"While Horowitz could dig deeply into the activities of those who were involved in the Trump–Russia related investigations inside the DOJ and at the FBI during the 2016 election and beyond, he had extremely limited ability when it came to investigating other federal departments and agencies such as the CIA or the State Department, both of whom had officials there play key roles in this scandal."
Horowitz could do quite a bit in his investigation, but his scope was largely limited by what could be investigated inside of the DOJ and FBI. Durham is going to be rounding up things that fell outside of his line of inquiries, such as people dicking around in State Departments or the CIA, both of which Durham's already butted heads with in the past.

Of course they are. Have you noticed how intensely they've been on the defense lately? You see the "Republicans Pounce!" framework in almost every other headline these days.

So basically in a decade or two the Democrats are going to be in the exact same place the Republicans are now? Desperately trying to shake off a bad reputation caused by them letting complete wackos steer the party for the past decade while the entire mainstream media is against them?

Sort of? It goes a little deeper than that, though. A large part of why the Democratic platform is losing their shit right now isn't just because Trump won the election, but because his administration has been putting the pedal to the medal when it comes to dismantling everything that they've worked so hard to set into place for the last... I don't know, thirty to forty years?

I know it's not much of a secret anymore that John Brennan "was" a devout Communist and that Maxine Waters wallowed around in the same bucket, nor that Obama was something of a fan of Saul Alinsky, but did you know who else "used to be" openly pro-Communist? James Comey. Isn't it interesting how just in the span of a single administration, a whole wagon full of people who "used to" identify themselves as Communists just happened to end up running LEO and Intelligence agenies, as well as the Executive Branch? Isn't it interesting how under that same administration so many Communist-centric nations ended up amassing so much power while the U.S. was slowly sapped and knee-capped at every turn?

The easiest way to find a former Communist is to look for the ones that loudly and vociferously denounce Communism and Socialism at every opportunity. Does that strike you as the story of what went on during the Obama Administration? It's not something as simple as just seeing the Democratic party kick and flail for the next decade or two like the Republican Fundamentalists wound up doing. The reason that they're freaking out as hard as they are is because we interrupted them during the Long March Through the Institutions, and they were so, so close to getting America where they wanted it to go.

The Democrats won't just have to shake off a bad reputation, they'll have to definitively prove to the voting public that they've unshackled themselves from the Communists once and for all, because there's very few things that the average voter hates more than a Communist, regardless of how many puff pieces VICE can vomit at them.

And what about the national debt, that lead albatross on the neck of the American economy?

I once watched a video talking about how Trump planned to break the Federal Reserve Banking System, therefore solving the debt crisis single-handed, and if he does, he will go down in history as the best president the US ever had.

Keeping in mind that the Federal Reserve seem to be in an alliance with the Democrats at the moment.

The republicans didn't, to my knowledge, attempt any coups, use the FBI to wiretap the opposition, trade state favors for donations to their political campaigns, destroy evidence of said crimes....

So I don't see how the situation could be the same at all.
