True Because Charles Johnson Said It’s True.

On Friday, 21 June 2019, at 7:35AM, that was the first thing on Charles Johnson’s walnut. Never mind there’s no citations to back up his assertion, never mind no civilians would be killed, only a vapid tweet  Yeah, Charles, your bullshit couldn’t possibly be more obvious.

Remember THIS interview?

Q: Were you the lefty type one associates with long haired guitar players?

I was pretty much center-left before 9/11. Never an America-hating loon, though. I’ve been a history buff most of my life, and on 9/11 I knew instantly who and what was responsible; I was aware of Bin Laden’s declaration of war on the US and as soon as I turned on the television that morning and saw the World Trade Center collapse, I knew it was Bin Laden and Al Qaeda.

But that day was a real mind-blower, for many people, myself included. At first, my center-liberal leanings caused me to ask, “Why do they hate us?” and similar questions; that questioning led me to begin serious investigation of the Islamic fanaticism that was growing unchecked in the Middle East.

Now I think the question is a pointless one, not because we shouldn’t self-examine, but because the answer lies within the Islamists, not within us — and understanding them will not achieve anything, except to the extent it allows us to defeat them.

Q: What does ‘defeat’ mean, though? Make them cry ‘uncle’?

Yes — the real problem is that America (and most of the civilized world) has tended to brush the Islamists off as “all talk.” They were able to attack us over and over in the years leading up to 9/11 (the USS Cole, Nigerian embassy bombings, first WTC, etc), and never suffered any consequences.

In the Arab/Islamic shame-honor mindset, this is interpreted as weakness — and it was. It was that perceived weakness that was directly responsible for 9/11. The only way to rectify this is to demonstrate superior force; and that’s what President Bush did after 9/11, smashing the Taliban and dethroning Saddam Hussein.

Charles “Pantload” Johnson pantsed himself again.

  1. “Because I use the pseudonym Kilgore Trout and had been somewhat of a nemesis to Barrett Brown, the FBI had apparently connected me with another Kilgore Trout who was, several years before I knew of Brown, also at odds with Brown. Both Brown and the other Trout had participated on the Little Green Footballs web site, some despicable hole of fringe punditry, but I knew very little about it. The agent claimed Brown had tasked a hacker with cracking Little Green Footballs — a fairly explosive piece of information. Evidence of Brown giving jobs to hackers has been alluded to in many stories about LulzSec, but no one has been sure of Brown’s level of involvement. If it was true he tasked someone with hacking Little Green Footballs, then his involvement with LulzSec could have possibly been pivotal. It was shocking, but of course I knew nothing that could be of help in any case. With grave seriousness which was not present in any other part of the conversation, he asked something like, “You once wrote that Barrett Brown worked for China or Russia. Is this true?”

    This is Barrett Brown. As you can verify for yourself from the late 2010 blog comments on the site, Johnson’s mod helped get me pursued by FBI starting in early 2011, when I was being investigated in part on the possibility that I was a Russian agent.

    Some of you will have seen articles or heard things about my case. Much of it will be incorrect, which is why many of those articles contradict each other. Aside from counterintelligence investigations ongoing in 2010 onward, I was targeted due to my role in exposing various activities and procedures developed by private and state intelligence and military, some of which would later be revealed to have been used in the 2016 election – several of the same firms, same individuals, same practices we’d investigated – on behalf of the Trump campaign.

    This can be verified rather easily via my March 2012 search warrant, published at Buzzfeed by Michael Hastings in April and naturally forgotten entirely by the press corps by the time of my arrest in September, after I made a 45 minute set of videos explaining what had become clear about the FBI’s investigation and the role played by HBGary and its contract employee – also an admitted FBI informant, as noted around then in various articles and books, charged with finding something to “get [me] picked up on” by HBGary execs Greg Hoglund and Jim Butterworth. That disinfo peddler/”informant” is named Jennifer Emick, who ran firm called Backtrace Security. If the name sounds familiar, it may because back in 2012, Robert Stacy McCain let her write a blog post about me, Anonymous, whatever else it is that McCain felt like having her put out. Naturally that post contradicted claims she made in a speech at Defcon, interviews for Gizmodo and D Magazine and Gawker and other outlets along with the books We Are Anonymous and Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy, as well as the various emails and phone messages and recorded Skype sessions that were forever being leaked or hacked back then.

    Among the things she claimed in those days, including in a Facebook post made in early 2011 before I’d ever met her, was that I had intended to “SWAT” her. The same claim would be made in my bond hearing the day after my arrest by a notoriously scummy FBI agent named Allen Lynd, who claimed to have seen me having conversations about such activities with a Democratic Party partisan named Neal Reahauser. The claim would never be again, since no such conversations existed; Lynn had been getting false information from a combination of Emick and, I have reason to believe, Patrick “Patterico” Frey (this wasn’t a problem for Lynn since FBI agents can lie under oath at will; indeed, it ensured that I would not make bond, and thus never gain meaningful access to the gigabytes of electronic discovery I would need to effectively address the dozens of demonstrably false claims the feds would make in the course of my case, sometimes in public view).

    Frey is shown in my discovery files – from when I was under secret grand jury search warrant surveillance – asking me to have Anonymous do something about the whiny would-be writer Jeff Goldstein’s rather dishonest blog post calling him an anti-Semite (Goldstein was upset that Frey had correctly implied that McCain was a white nationalist, something established over and over again via his own past statements to an extent that he was always reluctant to link to things I wrote when pretending to refute them, being a typical neo-Confederate coward – we’ll return to that in a second). As Goldstein was clearly in the wrong, and I thought Frey was an okay fellow, I asked around about what might be done that would be legal, but no one was interested). Later Frey asked me for any correspondence I’d had with Reahauser, who had briefly frequented our early Project PM chat room when a retired IRS lawyer and I were still attempting to build the journalism and civic platform I’d envisioned prior, and who had thereafter gotten involved in some madness regarding Anthony Weiner. I immediately provided him with all such emails in which Frey was mentioned, as I despised Reahauser, who’d turned out not to be the Congressional aide or whatever he’d claimed to be, and also, as became gradually known, a deranged subhuman who used sock puppets to accomplish whatever it was he was doing (he was also connected to InfraGard, the FBI-corporate information sharing entity that would be listed on my search warrant as well and then never mentioned again thereafter).

    Somehow, Frey decided that my entirely friendly and good-faith interactions with him justified his impulse to concoct a theory whereby I myself had “SWAT” him due to alleged motives on which I was never clear, perhaps as per suggestions from Emick, or McCain; perhaps it was borne simply of his own immense disregard for the rights of others, and the notion that maybe it was possible that I SWAT him and so what would be the harm in suggesting this to the FBI since I wasn’t doing anything important anyway (upon my discovery that HBGary Federal’s creepy CEO had been spying on us while we were assisting the Tunisian democratic revolution via Anonymous’ OpTunisia campaign, and while I was organizing legal assistance for some of the forty U.S. households that had been subjected to armed raids over the DDOS of Paypal and were now facing decades in prison, Frey kept asking me about an individual named Brett Kimberlin who had come up in the emails, but which had no interest to most of us, as well as why some outlet I had no connection to didn’t report some aspect of this in some way he said was necessary. It was around then that I should have realized that this was someone for whom it was never safe to do any favors, as opposed to secular young Tunisians or the Bahrain democratic movement leader Maryam al-Khajawa or various journalists and labor leaders who were being plotted against by the Holder DOJ and outfits of NSA-linked sociopaths. I was naive then.

    Shortly before my arrest, when it became clearer that R.S. McCain was dealing with the people who were preparing to concoct vague “fraud” charges against me, and charge my mother as well in an effort to get me to cooperate, and that Frey seemed to be dealing with him while also devising ideas about me that would no doubt contribute to my family being destroyed, I demanded that he return my favor by showing me what McCain was conspiring to do. Because McCain had already openly incited the FBI against me on the grounds that I was involved with Anonymous – Tunisia, you see, and Bahrain, and going through all these same emails and docs that Frey et al loved when they proved something about a left-wing bomb enthusiast, etc, though my interest was in things that could diminish democracy and informed consent, like mass surveillance, propaganda technologies, the DOJ acting as concierge to private interests and then prosecuting those of us who caught them committing crimes, even if we had no role in the hacks.

    Naturally Frey failed to do anything of the sort, as presumably those emails with him and McCain and god knows who else would look even worse than the idiotic things he was already telling me. For instance, he noted he’d suspected my Project PM organization supposedly stood for “persona management”, a mass sock-puppetry capability discovered in HBGary emails in February 2011. He was a busy man, I suppose, and so couldn’t Google “Project PM” and learn that it had existed since 2009, mentioned in a Vanity Fair piece I did in defense of Michael Hastings where I disclosed we worked together on developing its journalism function, etc. I’m sure his defendants are in great fucking hands. I wasn’t even on his docket and I got fucked simply by meeting him. My family got fucked.

    I’m tired of writing this, so I’ll simply note that below, you can enjoy seeing Charles Johnson and this even bigger punk-ass bitch Bob Cesca learn how it was that they accidentally sabotaged the Democratic Party rather than do whatever it is they thought they were doing from late 2010 on, and how they were conned by HBGary into doing more of it whereas RS McCain was at least openly engaged in setting me up, while Frey seemed not to have any idea what he was doing or what the consequences might be.

    Either way, I’d like to confirm or rule out a few things involving what happened to Hastings and I during the time in which we both seem to have come under a particular degree of state scrutiny, how much stemmed from Johnson and his fucking blog moderator, how much stemmed from McCain, particularly throughout 2011, and how much would come to involve Frey. Obviously I can’t get answers from either of them because both of them are cowards – like that guy over at American Power, or Aaron Barr, or everyone at Palantir, especially as of this weekend, and my inquiries have gone just as unanswered with them as they have with Cesca and Johnson and so many others who seem to have gone mute since I managed not to die in prison despite their efforts to bury me there. At least Cesca tried to mouth off once before shutting up forever after, like you two pussies.

    Incidentally, I see that McCain has written a cute piece on Aaron Swartz’s suicide and how sad it was. Swartz worked with us, dumb fuck. He helped investigate the statist-friendly tech that your allies HBGary were trying to make money from. Go on Twitter; search my old handle BarrettBrownLOL and his, aaronsw. We were looking into persona management. Your buddy there, Emick; look up what she had to say about that. It was the sort of thing that she passed on to the FBI, who didn’t like it one bit.

    Anyway, if you look at what I told your opposite numbers, you might get a sense of how much more was going on than it may have appeared. Or you might have to search for “Barrett Brown bomb threat”, or stuff like “what was Michael Hastings looking into about Barrett Brown when he died” or “Assange went after a former ally. it backfired” or whatever else you want to do. Look up Popov, then his old FBI handler Hilbert, then his name and mine. Or whatever; all you need to know is that I’ve been after these fucking Palantir subhumans since we learned how many were actually involved in this thing about digging up dirt on the children of their enemies (McCain and Emick, on behalf of HBGary, don’t like quoting my whole sentence on that from the night I was raided; the part about “because that’s what Aaron Barr did, and he didn’t get raided for it” tends to remind people that I was making a point about how Barr actually did that (and that FBI had to throw in some shit Bob Beckel said on Fox News about murdering Julian Assange and pretend I said it about an FBI agent just to round things out, because, hey, Robert Stacy McCain isn’t going to mention that part; Southern Honor and Pride and all, you see).

    Anyone else reading this who feels inclined to let me know what they recall about what HBGary, its staffers, its contract employees like Jennifer Emick, and its friendly little FBI agents might have gotten involved in around here in last seven years, mostly from 2010-2013, I’d appreciate it. It’s not just on my behalf, as I’m pretty deadened out by becoming so less naive so fast, or for my mom, who has PTSD from the legal SWAT that Frey helped pull off, the kind where the cops don’t apologize and leave, but instead threaten your son and then you, and then start with gag orders and other things we’ll have to just wait to talk about. Obviously things worked out for the GOP since that’s who Peter Thiel wanted in power, preferably with Trump at the head; but if anyone really cares about the values they claim to care about – and I gather most don’t – then read this thread down here really carefully, and feel free to reach out and ask me what sort of things are coming out and what else might not.

    Finally: Yes, I know, I’m totally crazy and wacky. What is all this wacky stuff? Also, heroin.

  4. Barrett Brown says:

    “Because I use the pseudonym Kilgore Trout and had been somewhat of a nemesis to Barrett Brown, the FBI had apparently connected me with another Kilgore Trout who was, several years before I knew of Brown, also at odds with Brown. Both Brown and the other Trout had participated on the Little Green Footballs web site, some despicable hole of fringe punditry, but I knew very little about it. The agent claimed Brown had tasked a hacker with cracking Little Green Footballs — a fairly explosive piece of information. Evidence of Brown giving jobs to hackers has been alluded to in many stories about LulzSec, but no one has been sure of Brown’s level of involvement. If it was true he tasked someone with hacking Little Green Footballs, then his involvement with LulzSec could have possibly been pivotal. It was shocking, but of course I knew nothing that could be of help in any case. With grave seriousness which was not present in any other part of the conversation, he asked something like, “You once wrote that Barrett Brown worked for China or Russia. Is this true?”

    This is Barrett Brown. As you can verify for yourself from the late 2010 blog comments on the site, Johnson’s mod helped get me pursued by FBI starting in early 2011, when I was being investigated in part on the possibility that I was a Russian agent.

    Some of you will have seen articles or heard things about my case. Much of it will be incorrect, which is why many of those articles contradict each other. Aside from counterintelligence investigations ongoing in 2010 onward, I was targeted due to my role in exposing various activities and procedures developed by private and state intelligence and military, some of which would later be revealed to have been used in the 2016 election – several of the same firms, same individuals, same practices we’d investigated – on behalf of the Trump campaign.

    This can be verified rather easily via my March 2012 search warrant, published at Buzzfeed by Michael Hastings in April and naturally forgotten entirely by the press corps by the time of my arrest in September, after I made a 45 minute set of videos explaining what had become clear about the FBI’s investigation and the role played by HBGary and its contract employee – also an admitted FBI informant, as noted around then in various articles and books, charged with finding something to “get [me] picked up on” by HBGary execs Greg Hoglund and Jim Butterworth. That disinfo peddler/”informant” is named Jennifer Emick, who ran firm called Backtrace Security. If the name sounds familiar, it may because back in 2012, Robert Stacy McCain let her write a blog post about me, Anonymous, whatever else it is that McCain felt like having her put out. Naturally that post contradicted claims she made in a speech at Defcon, interviews for Gizmodo and D Magazine and Gawker and other outlets along with the books We Are Anonymous and Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy, as well as the various emails and phone messages and recorded Skype sessions that were forever being leaked or hacked back then.

    Among the things she claimed in those days, including in a Facebook post made in early 2011 before I’d ever met her, was that I had intended to “SWAT” her. The same claim would be made in my bond hearing the day after my arrest by a notoriously scummy FBI agent named Allen Lynd, who claimed to have seen me having conversations about such activities with a Democratic Party partisan named Neal Reahauser. The claim would never be again, since no such conversations existed; Lynn had been getting false information from a combination of Emick and, I have reason to believe, Patrick “Patterico” Frey (this wasn’t a problem for Lynn since FBI agents can lie under oath at will; indeed, it ensured that I would not make bond, and thus never gain meaningful access to the gigabytes of electronic discovery I would need to effectively address the dozens of demonstrably false claims the feds would make in the course of my case, sometimes in public view).

    Frey is shown in my discovery files – from when I was under secret grand jury search warrant surveillance – asking me to have Anonymous do something about the whiny would-be writer Jeff Goldstein’s rather dishonest blog post calling him an anti-Semite (Goldstein was upset that Frey had correctly implied that McCain was a white nationalist, something established over and over again via his own past statements to an extent that he was always reluctant to link to things I wrote when pretending to refute them, being a typical neo-Confederate coward – we’ll return to that in a second). As Goldstein was clearly in the wrong, and I thought Frey was an okay fellow, I asked around about what might be done that would be legal, but no one was interested). Later Frey asked me for any correspondence I’d had with Reahauser, who had briefly frequented our early Project PM chat room when a retired IRS lawyer and I were still attempting to build the journalism and civic platform I’d envisioned prior, and who had thereafter gotten involved in some madness regarding Anthony Weiner. I immediately provided him with all such emails in which Frey was mentioned, as I despised Reahauser, who’d turned out not to be the Congressional aide or whatever he’d claimed to be, and also, as became gradually known, a deranged subhuman who used sock puppets to accomplish whatever it was he was doing (he was also connected to InfraGard, the FBI-corporate information sharing entity that would be listed on my search warrant as well and then never mentioned again thereafter).

    Somehow, Frey decided that my entirely friendly and good-faith interactions with him justified his impulse to concoct a theory whereby I myself had “SWAT” him due to alleged motives on which I was never clear, perhaps as per suggestions from Emick, or McCain; perhaps it was borne simply of his own immense disregard for the rights of others, and the notion that maybe it was possible that I SWAT him and so what would be the harm in suggesting this to the FBI since I wasn’t doing anything important anyway (upon my discovery that HBGary Federal’s creepy CEO had been spying on us while we were assisting the Tunisian democratic revolution via Anonymous’ OpTunisia campaign, and while I was organizing legal assistance for some of the forty U.S. households that had been subjected to armed raids over the DDOS of Paypal and were now facing decades in prison, Frey kept asking me about an individual named Brett Kimberlin who had come up in the emails, but which had no interest to most of us, as well as why some outlet I had no connection to didn’t report some aspect of this in some way he said was necessary. It was around then that I should have realized that this was someone for whom it was never safe to do any favors, as opposed to secular young Tunisians or the Bahrain democratic movement leader Maryam al-Khajawa or various journalists and labor leaders who were being plotted against by the Holder DOJ and outfits of NSA-linked sociopaths. I was naive then.

    Shortly before my arrest, when it became clearer that R.S. McCain was dealing with the people who were preparing to concoct vague “fraud” charges against me, and charge my mother as well in an effort to get me to cooperate, and that Frey seemed to be dealing with him while also devising ideas about me that would no doubt contribute to my family being destroyed, I demanded that he return my favor by showing me what McCain was conspiring to do. Because McCain had already openly incited the FBI against me on the grounds that I was involved with Anonymous – Tunisia, you see, and Bahrain, and going through all these same emails and docs that Frey et al loved when they proved something about a left-wing bomb enthusiast, etc, though my interest was in things that could diminish democracy and informed consent, like mass surveillance, propaganda technologies, the DOJ acting as concierge to private interests and then prosecuting those of us who caught them committing crimes, even if we had no role in the hacks.

    Naturally Frey failed to do anything of the sort, as presumably those emails with him and McCain and god knows who else would look even worse than the idiotic things he was already telling me. For instance, he noted he’d suspected my Project PM organization supposedly stood for “persona management”, a mass sock-puppetry capability discovered in HBGary emails in February 2011.

I wasn’t even on his docket and I got fucked simply by meeting him. My family got fucked.

    I’m tired of writing this, so I’ll simply note that below, you can enjoy seeing Charles Johnson and this even bigger punk-ass bitch Bob Cesca learn how it was that they accidentally sabotaged the Democratic Party rather than do whatever it is they thought they were doing from late 2010 on, and how they were conned by HBGary into doing more of it whereas RS McCain was at least openly engaged in setting me up, while Frey seemed not to have any idea what he was doing or what the consequences might be.

At least Cesca tried to mouth off once before shutting up forever after, like you two pussies.

        Been a long time. Where have you been hiding? Oh, wait, we know. 😉

        Hell, I think there’s even a category on the sidebar with your name on it. Your knit cap vids amused us. Honest.

        You know that this blog is a one-trick pony, all Charles all the time, except in the comments where we snark about current events.

        Please edit your posts down to a couple of paragraphs so peeps will actually read your rants, and we’ll be just fine. No recruiting for Anonymous.

        Live Clean And Prosper. — 1st Officer Spork

        Your pal, Bunk

        P.S. You meant Rauhauser, ya?

        • I had intended this recent thread as the obligatory summary, since you’re quite correct that this is not the place for nuance. Here it is again:

          As for the name – yes, Rauhauser.

          • Gentlemen, take a look at two things:

            1. https://thediaryofdaedalus.com/2011/03/07/barret-brown-discusses-attack-on-lgf/#comments

            2. The March 7 LGF post in which Charles repeatedly claims that no hack occurred, and that this was made known to him by his provider

            Number two will be difficult, because it seems to have been deleted or hidden, unless I’m just missing something. But you can still read those fragments on your comments from the “attack” post. And you can still read various claims by Johnson and Bob Cesca that I personally hacked or “DDOSed” or “Tried to hack” his website.

            Anyway, enjoy.

    That’s a lot to absorb, Barrett — I’ll be back later to read carefully. Also, congrats on doing your time and getting out of prison, and I hope you’re steering clear of the opiates.

    • Abu Logging In, Again says:

      Is he Gates Brown’s relative?

      • Octopus says:

        I could be wrong, but I don’t think they’re related.

        • Octopus says:

          Btw, Gates was a big hero of mine back in ’68. He hit .370 as a pinch-hitter, which is unheard of, and helped the Tigs to a lot of wins on their way to the championship.

          Barrett, on the other hand, is a gadfly who has done his time in prison. I thought he had potential as a muckraking journalist, back before he “went away to college.” I hadn’t heard from him in years. We can always use another rake around here. The muck is deep.

    • Calo says:

      That was my first thought to the word salads above, someone has been dabbling in the opiates again.

      • Octopus says:

        The only thing tougher to quit is cigarettes, I’ve heard. Well, I quit smoking cold turkey back in ’84, a few months before I got married. Quit doing the drugs, and feel the exquisite pain of life in all its glory, pussies.

      • Bunk X says:

        HOLY CARP! CALO I MISSED YOU!
        (I mean we missed you….)

      • Octopus says:

        I guess he also kept busy with salads, word and other types. What I heard, anyway.

      • I recall getting the same reaction on Daily Kos back in 2012, when I denounced Obama for the drone strike on the 15-year-old American citizen and the locals took turns pretending not to be able to understand me.

        Here’s a short version that may perhaps be graspable by non-heroin addicts:

        R.S. McCain is a snitch and a liar. Patrick Frey is a snitch and a liar. Charles Johnson is also a snitch and a liar, though, so perhaps that will help the medicine go down. Either way, you may or may not have noticed this other summary linked above, via Twitter, which had led Johnson to block me and hide, just as Frey and McCain have wisely done (they’re all the same basic person, deep down).

        • Octopus says:

          That’s all ancient history nobody cares about, Brown. I suggest you put the past behind you and forge some new professional and/or personal history. Yes, we still mock old Chonky here, but we’re not journalists breaking news and recording modern history, as you once endeavored to do. I suspect you got screwed a bit in your criminal case, but that’s hardly unique when you’re taking on feds and other powerful fiefdoms. Let it go. Investigate the monopolistic, all-powerful tech giants like Bezos and Zuckerman, for example. Find the skeletons!

It could also be a ball-sack with the penis strapped against her belly. It might even be a wiry bush, with an unfortunate and very expensive pair of Parisian knickers stretched over it…you know, the ones she hired Air Force One to ferry her and a pal to Paris to pick up.

        But I’m pretty sure it’s the Bull-God. Giddyap, Unicorn Messiah! 😯

          • KGB says:

            My dad spanked me a couple times growing up. I always deserved. It scared the crap out of me and enforced a deep respect for his word as law. Children are happier when they know their place in the family, and in that respect the odd corporal punishment is not necessarily a bad thing. The key is the parent has to do it dispassionately and not out of anger or frustration. If the child senses the parent has lost control of his/her emotions, the punishment won’t be effective. But if it’s applied coldly the child then focuses on what they, and not the parent, have done wrong.

          • rightymouse says:

            Son was biting other kids in day care – He was maybe 3 or 4 years old . We talked to him, but he wasn’t being cooperative. Then one day, i picked him up & he bit my arm, so I bit him back. He stopped biting everyone.

    Hey, Chonky…go up the stairs, dragging your fused-on futon behind you. Go out to the alley behind your Mom’s house, and follow it down to the end, behind the scary trap house, where it turns into a dirt road. Ignore the jibes of the junkies hanging around back there. Take the dirt road through the rural outskirts of town. There is a mountain. And over that mountain is a valley and in that valley you’ll find the perfect spot you can go fuck yourself.

  16. Octopus says:

    Is it “nosy” to follow an extension cord plugged into their outdoor outlet to your garage squat next door? I think it might just be normal human curiosity, myself. I hope you offered them a drink and a smoke, like a good off-the-grid neighbor.

It’s really creepy, the way the MSM is operating these days in a coordinated, radical agenda-pushing way. Remember that expose by the NYT Guy last year, detailing the methods used?

Can anyone spot any seriously false allegations in here? I know there must be a few, somewhere. It’s too horrible and evil to contemplate the state of things, if there aren’t. Please tell me there’s an exaggeration or misinterpretation included here.

    ———————————————————————

    Let’s follow the trail.. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important..

    Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason.

    From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

    A Grand Jury had been impaneled.

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity.”

    Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

    None other than James Comey.

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

    Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

    It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

    No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States , Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

    I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common?

    They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

    Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

    Let’s fast forward to 2009…..

    James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server, by the way.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary.

    Like all good public servants do. You know – looking out for America ’s best interests. She decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of all of the US ‘s Uranium to no other than — the Russians.

    Now, you might think that this was a fairly straight-up deal, except that it wasn’t: The American People got absolutely nothing out of it.

    And they’ve investigate President Trump for “collusion”?

    However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton traveled to Moscow, got paid 500K for a one hour speech, and then met with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    Ok, no big deal right?

    Well, not so fast: the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this time?

    Yep, Robert Mueller, who even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland ?

    None other than, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess what happened to the informant?

    The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

    How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole, providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

    ~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Now guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division? None other than, Lois Lerner.

    Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences. Nothing to see here, right?

    Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that The Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email. ( Let’s not forget – at least 10 CIA spies in China were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks, and God knows what else occurred. )

    Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

    Now this is amazing: guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

    Hint: he secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed Lockheed.

    None other than James Comey.

    Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

    So he’s the FBI Director in charge of the “ Clinton Email Investigation” after, of course, his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

    Nope…we couldn’t find any crimes there.

    So what happened next?

    In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton — something he had no authority to do. Meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

    They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

    Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” that Comey is, he steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 5th of 2016, and exonerates The Hillary from any wrongdoing.

    Can you see the pattern?

    It goes on and on. Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General; Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein; Comey leaks government information to the press; Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ. And the story continues.

    FISA Abuse, political espionage… pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it, bringing new meaning to the term “organized crime.”

    All the same players.

    All compromised and conflicted.

    All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves

    All connected in one way or another to the Clintons .

    They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

    How many lives have the Clinton ‘s two destroyed?

    As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

    Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

    And the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above while doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton!

    WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?

    Let’s look a little into Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

    Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney who graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

    Barsoomian, with her boss, R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

    Lawrence also represented:

    Robert Mueller three times;

    James Comey five times;

    Barack Obama 45 times;

    Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

    Bill Clinton 40 times; and

    Hillary Clinton 17 times.

    Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

    You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?

    Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?).

    Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.

    Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

    This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

    It’s a cover, so big deal, right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

    It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

    Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

    BECAUSE … She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE … That’s why!

    GET THIS INFORMATION OUT TO EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been exposed

    DO YOUR PART IN PLASTERING THIS INFORMATION EVERYWHERE … it’s bullet proof and cannot be blown off by leftists … and will convince many not paying attention that we have a soft coup happening now.

  22. Octopus says:

    Look at the crowds Trump is pulling in — somebody please explain to me how anyone could take the MSM seriously about how people are tired of Trump and want him out. People LOVE Trump, the wascally wabbit! 😆

  23. Octopus says:

  24. Octopus says:

    Chonky is beside himself that the Trump-hating MSM can’t do anything with the bullshit story from a mentally-ill “journalist” who forgot that Trump raped her for fifteen years or so, before suddenly remembering and bravely coming forward. 😆

    You thought, “This time we really got him!” Right, Fatass? The walls were closing in, while the wheels came off, and all that good stuff? And now…nothing but the dulcet tones of the too-familiar sad trombone. 😦

  25. Octopus says:

    Dang, that’s quite listenable, Gus. You have much better taste in music than your old pal Fatass.

    Note: I didn’t like the “reformed Clapton” albums of the ’70’s when they came out, as I was still much preferring the wild rock sounds of the Cream era maniac. I like listening to all of Clapton’s stuff nowadays, when it comes on the radio, which is rarely anymore. For instance, I hated “461 Ocean Boulevard,” loathed it entirely, and “Slowhand” a couple of years later wasn’t much better. The truth is, Clapton nearly killed himself with heroin and cocaine, and alcohol of course, and it’s kind of a miracle he released any new music after that time period.

    Here’s another song I hated that got a lot of airplay. Sounds very sweet to me, now. Maturation, or senility setting in?

  26. Octopus says:

    Chonky, get out of the house NOW!! The tweets that are terrifying you so ARE COMING FROM INSIDE YOUR BUNKER!!1! 😱

  27. Octopus says:

    Another golden moment of lucidity for Gus. Maybe if he can string enough of these together, he can get his act together enough to seek gainful employment, a healthier lifestyle, and a safe, comfortable place to live that is not dependent on the kindness or obliviousness of strangers?

  28. Octopus says:

          • Octopus says:

            I just read Iris Chang’s “Rape Of Nanking,” which nearly made me puke in places. It’s also disgusting the way Japanese society pretends they were the victims of that war, too, as MacArthur let them keep their vile emperor and pretend he was innocent of wrongdoing. Just some rogue generals and over-exuberant young soldiers, not to mention Chinese criminals and “professional prostitutes” (some as young as 8, believe it or not). I do not recommend this book for anyone who likes to sleep at night.

          • rightymouse says:

            I read “The Rape of Nanking” years ago. It helped me understand my Dad’s dislike of anything Japanese. The culture today, of course, is nothing like it used to be.

          • Octopus says:

            Tragic the way Iris lost her mind and killed herself, after promoting her third book. I didn’t know that part of the story.

            I know Japan is all peaceful and cute these days, but they even censor all their school textbooks to leave out any negative remarks on their own behavior in the war. That’s not right.

          • rightymouse says:

            Thailand censors stuff too. They have very strict (criminal) Lese Majeste laws there. Sucks. I have to avoid saying anything about the new King when I’m there.

          • Octopus says:

            Thailand never committed the kind of crimes Japan did. Not even close, by any measure. Japan was worse than the Nazis, in some ways. They never got their due, because we had to bring them under the Western Umbrella of goodguysfreetrade, or something. We also welcomed a lot of Germans, but the Germans imposed anti-Nazi measures against their own survivors, which the Japs largely circumvented.

    Mike Gravel, former Alaskan Senator, ran for the democrat presidential nomination in 2008, and he’s running again. Awesome.

    What a joke this was!

      He’s nutso. 😂

      I think the NRA could make him room-temp if they really wanted to, with all their machine-guns, clips, armor-piercing hollow-points and things that go up. Seven times they missed! That’s really poor shooting!

    “Shut up,” moaned the twitching mass of reeking flab from the basement of the bunker.

      How many Trump tweets does it take to trigger a corpulent ponytailed Twittermonger?

      Let’s find out!

      A one…

      A two-hoo…

      A three…

      the answer is three. 😀

    Newly discovered footage of AOC emoting at the plight of those poor “undocumented” children down at the border.

    Nothing says “CONCENTRATION CAMP!!!!!11111!!!!” like barbed wire!

    No wonder she’s so upset! 😮

    After watching the Donkey debates last night, I’ve made up my mind.
    Avenatti/Weiner 2020!!!

    So it looks like I go into a 24 hour timeout mode after I post a comment with a link to verboten sites. Probably a list sent to Akismet that says I’m a bad, bad boy. Since I mostly link to Fox News or Gateway Pundit that could explain a lot. And I linked to one of the AOC chain link agony pics which I had to search hard for because Google shows them as having been out there. Yet pic after pic they’ve been removed because gosh I wonder why?

    You’ve probably known this for awhile, but it bears repeating: the brat-cages were the Unicorn Messiah’s idea, implemented during his administration. So stop crying, Donkey-Chompers. 😆

    This is great 👍🏽!

        • Octopus says:

          A young fighter can be distinguished from an older vet by their instinctive volleys of punches. As they get older, there’s a tendency toward caution, which couples with slower reaction-time, leading to less overall aggression and effectiveness.

          The Cheerleader has none of this going on. What she does have, is a fierce persona and two hands named, respectfully, “Thunder” and “Lightning.” Not respectively…you never know which one is coming towards your noggin, at any point in go-time.

          • Bunk X says:

            The aggressor was getting beat, and that’s when the bystanders decided to break it up. Got it.

          • Because Literally Hitler says:

            It was an instant classic like the old guy who beats the crap out of the black thug on the bus. Major miscalculation in both cases.

            Flawed assumptions:
            all whites back down from black aggression – check
            I’m big, mean and intimidating – check
            She’s sitting. I’m standing over her – check
            She’s a little dipshit white cheerleader more worried about her hair and her face – check

            Unfactored outlier:
            She’s an extremely fit young athlete with a badass hair-trigger temper and a two-fisted ambidextrous surprisingly accurate flail you better keep the fuck away from.

            If they hadn’t pulled her off I thought she might try some ground and pound with a couple well-placed elbow drops. LOL!

          • Octopus says:

            Her takedown-move looked textbook. She must have a rowdy brother or two at home. 😆

    Here’s a nice, juicy Gateway Pundit link to a story that should ENRAGE the little twits with their fingers on the block/ban/suspend buttons. Come and get me, coppers! 🤬

    Rooting HARD for France tomorrow!! 😄

    Look at her Twitter, all sales, all the time, except when she’s bashing Trump and the people who voted him into office. I hope this foul-mouthed loser scores an own-goal to salt away the win for France.

    Uncle Touchy’s done messed with the bull, and boy is he getting the horns now. 🤣

    There’s no way in hell the Socialist/SJW crowd is going to let him win the nomination. He should save everybody a lot of trouble and expense and drop out now. Ripcord!! 😄

    People are mad and calling it “victim-shaming” that this Utah gal’s online life as a “sugar baby” has been disclosed. What if it turns out this little scam directly led to her death at the hands of a deadly suitor, as seems very possible?

    This is a form of prostitution, and prostitutes lead exceedingly dangerous lives. Don’t do it, kids.
