I started drafting this post more than 10 days ago. The post title has not changed. I saw this coming and stand by it.
Finally, there are others saying the exact same thing. My friends warned me not to post with a title like this. As Chuck Schumer said“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” When the Senate Minority Leader warns a President about the terrifying power of an agency supposedly under his own Executive Branch it is time to take a hard look at our system. It should be reiterated there are thousands of great people in the FBI and DOJ. However, the old saying “The fish rots from the head” appears to be true here.
By now the hard work I did in outlining the facts has been exposed by several journalists. I have deleted all the bullet points and links that originally had been drafted for this posting. The only question now is will there be prosecutions of the FBI and DOJ people involved in the attempt to thwart a Donald Trump Presidency with the help of foreign nationals in Great Britain and Russia?
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
I think the best outline of this attempt to overthrow the election has been outlined by Jeanine Pirro. Here is the video from last night.
General Paul Vallely said it like this on his FB page:
Here’s the way the entire operation looks in simple outline.
Career officials, managers and staff within the DOJ and FBI wanted to help ensure Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election. Those people were ideologically aligned with President Obama, and held the goal of maintaining progressive advances as part of their motive.
A “small group” was formed within the DOJ and FBI to facilitate this goal. The first goal was to remove Clinton from the burden of the FBI email investigation.
Once that goal was achieved, they moved on to Clinton’s 2016 challenger. By the time the 2016 GOP convention drew near, everyone accepted that challenger would be Donald Trump.
As such the FBI “small group” began monitoring candidate Donald Trump in June/July 2016 as part of a plan toward the benefit of candidate Hillary Clinton.
However, the FBI and DOJ officials also needed an actual basis, a legal justification for their behavior and the time they were spending. The plan to justify that behavior was to create an official counterintelligence operation.
To get the counterintelligence operation going, they needed a reasonable basis for creating one. That basis was the formative seeds of claims of Russian connections to the Trump campaign.
To establish the basis the Russian elements needed for the operation; the DNC and Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS to contract Christopher Steele to write a dossier that would form the legal grounding for the counterintelligence operation.
Fusion GPS hired DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, who was well versed in counterintelligence operations, CIA operations, and using tradecraft to create illusions.
Nellie Ohr worked with retired British MI6 Agent Christopher Steele to manufacture the Steele Dossier. The dossier would take innocuous connections between Trump and Russian people, enhance them, fabricate some nefarious appearance, and then be turned over to Bruce Ohr’s counterintelligence buddy in the FBI Peter Strzok.
In essence, the Clinton’s created the Russian “angle” out of thin air; and the FBI and DOJ used that creation as the legal underpinning for the counterintelligence operation.
The cointel op was always just a ruse for wiretapping, surveillance and monitoring of Donald Trump campaign officials.
The FBI (Strzok) and DOJ (Ohr) dressed up the Steele Dossier to apply for a FISA warrant (FBI Attorney Lisa Page). The surveillance was happening with or without the FISA approval; but the FISA warrant would make the surveillance legal.
The initial application to the FISA Court was so sketchy (June/July 2016) is was actually denied. Denials rarely happen. One-in-a-thousand.
The Steele Dossier was dressed up some more. More stuff added, thanks to Christopher Steele and Nellie Ohr, to the second FISA application in Sept./October. That FISA application again submitted by Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page. That warrant was approved.
If Hillary was elected, the entire counterintelligence operation just disappears into the ether. No-one would ever know about it.
But Hillary didn’t win.
Subsequently, the entire Trump Counterintelligence Operation was likely to be exposed. So the team behind the CoIntel scheme, again “the small group”, had to make up the “Russian Interference in The Election” narrative, a larger narrative, to cover their tracks.
The manufactured basis for the FISA warrant, ‘Muh Russia’ now needed to become real; or at least have the appearance of being real or justified.
That’s why the goofy “Joint Analysis Report on Russian Interference” was created. Brennan (CIA), Clapper (ODNI), and Comey (FBI), and to a much lesser extent the outsider Mike Rogers (NSA). This became the “17 intelligence agencies” blah.. blah… blah.
It was never 17 intel agencies. It was four. Only three pushed it. Mike Rogers said he had low/moderate confidence in the underlying intelligence within the report. The report was created as evidence to enhance the cover. Nothing more.
[My hunch is if you put the Steele Dossier together with the Joint Analysis Report, you will find 90% of the FISA application documentation.]
Additionally, the entire crew, from the Obama Administration and current career people within the DOJ, FBI, etc., who understood the larger scheme, needed ongoing people to continue ensuring the story was maintained.
That drove the need for a Special Counsel investigation. Mueller’s investigation was really just another way the players within the original scheme could keep a lid on the events in 2016.
That’s why many of the FBI/DOJ “small group”, the crew who cleared Hillary in the email investigation, were also assigned to the Mueller investigation. Controls were needed.
Inside Mueller’s crew, the “small group” essentially works to watch over what information the Trump officials or congress could possibly be discovering…. under the auspices of investigating ‘Muh Russia’ etc. If the “small group” comes across a risky trail being followed, they work to impede, block, delay or deflect anyone from that trail.
That’s the ‘high-level’ summary of the way things look from a researched perspective.
There’s one guy at the heart of this operation who can blow the lid of EVERYTHING.
His name is Bill Priestap.
Priestap’s position in 2016 was Director of Counterintelligence for the FBI.
Mc Cabe is caught. There’s a growing possibility Priestap has flipped. Start asking about him.
Scott Uehlinger is the right man for the job. A fellow Veteran with great experience and a Trump supporter. We fully endorse Scott for the 15th Congressional District in Pennsylvania. See a letter from Scott to his fellow Pennsylvanians below:
Hello fellow Pennsylvanian,
I’m Scott Uehlinger, and I am a Republican running for United States Congress in Pennsylvania’s 15th Congressional District.
My story is not one typical of a career politician. It began by pursuing my dream of a military career with an appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and entering the United States Navy as a commissioned officer upon graduation. I saw the world at its best and worst while serving at sea during my four years on active duty. Upon leaving Navy active duty, I returned to sea as a merchant marine still serving our country by delivering fuel to our troops in the Persian Gulf War zone.
Long fascinated by history and foreign cultures, and a desire to continuing serving this great nation, I joined the Central Intelligence Agency in 1996 as an Operations Officer and quickly realized I had an aptitude for languages. In short order, I found myself fluent in four languages including Russian and Spanish. That unique skill enabled me to operate in the former Soviet Union, recruiting spies for the United States for over 12 years.
My career included intelligence operations against Russian, Iranian, terror, and weapons proliferation targets, and I was awarded five exceptional performance awards for my service.
This unfiltered real-world experience, not a career in big government political bureaucracy, is the perspective I will bring to Washington D.C..
In 2014 I retired as a CIA Station Chief and Naval Reserve Officer, settling in Topton (Berks County) with my beautiful wife Veronica and wonderful daughter, Mihaela.
Other accomplishments include a having held a faculty position at New York University, and being a sought-after expert on intelligence and national security matters for Fox News, Sirus XM Patriot, Breitbart Radio, and many others. I also publish a blog called, ‘The Station Chief’ at newsmax.com, and am an NRA Life Member.
A very early supporter of President Trump, in May 2016 I was elected by the voters in PA’s 15th Congressional District to represent them as a Donald Trump Delegate at the Republican National Convention.
Now I have been called to serve again as the voice of the people in the 15th Congressional District. As a non-politician, I will bring a lifetime of national security experience and military discipline to Congress, where I will uphold the interests of our district and our great republic, and join others in returning our federal government to where it rightfully belongs. In the hands of the American people.
However, I cannot do this without your help. We need your support now more than ever because now is the time to put citizen-politicians into office.
Let’s start here in the 15th Congressional District of Pennsylvania!
Please, visit my website, www.scottforpa.com and donate. Even a small donation is a big help in this fight against the establishment.
Christina Hagan is the only pro-Trump candidate in the race for Ohio’s 16th congressional district. Veterans for Trump exists to promote worthy people and causes and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is why we are announcing our official support of Christina Hagan for Congress. Christina is a proven constitutional warrior who will cut through the bureaucratic bog and get to work on the MAGA agenda we voted for and continue to support.
There’s a war going on in the heart of D.C. and President Trump needs a MAGA warrior like Christina to fight with him against the Establishment of the people’s agenda.
I had the opportunity to speak with Christina a few days ago. We submitted her information to our members and she is being endorsed by 100% of our membership! In addition, one of our members, Navyman Norm, volunteered to work for Christiana in Ohio.
I am inserting a portion of a video from YouTube. After speaking with Christina and watching this video I was very impressed with her. Christina fits in with Vets For Trump nicely. She has the courage & heart of a warrior! In the video, you will hear her support and defend the President of the United States knowing it will make her unpopular with a group of women. Christina is clear about President Trump. He is the President the country needs and that he treated her with more respect than many in the GOP establishment.
Please share this post with all your friends. We are spread out across this nation but we can support her by helping to amplify her voice! A voice that needs to be heard by others running for Congress.
Nothing brings people together in the United States like a threat from the outside. It is sad that it takes the threat of war to unite the majority of us. Remember 911? I was very pleased to see Lindsey Graham support President Trump on CNN (of all places).
“I don’t want a war. He doesn’t want a war,” Graham said, referring to Trump. “But we’re not going to let this crazy man in North Korea have the capability to hit the homeland.”
Maybe this is a turning point for the anti-Trump people in the Republican Party. I have little hope that many Democratic leaders will put America first, even in a time of crisis. However, the leadership of the party is NOT the people. I believe most Americans will support President Trump if we go to war.
This is a good time to appeal to your friends who have not been on board with President Trump. The threat from North Korea has been growing under previous administrations. It is now falling into the lap of President Trump. We must all support him.
The decision to go to war will not be an easy thing for the President. It is going to be very sobering. We all know the loss of life will be significant. However, if we wait it will be much worse.
The President is giving China one last chance to fix this. I cannot imagine President Trump will wait too much longer if the Chinese fail to stop the insane North Korean leader. We should all pray North Korean Generals turn on Kim Jong Un and put someone in charge that sees the benefits of peace.
RE: JANUARY 27TH RALLY – MAGA MARCH FOR JUSTICE (MMFJ)
WASHINGTON, DC—In its mission to support and defend President Trump in Making America Great Again and to demand an end to abuses of power that illegitimately subvert the lawful execution of his electoral mandate, MAGA March for Justice will rally in Washington, DC and other locations across the country on January 27, 2018.
Supportive of President Trump and his promise to Make America Great Again, MAGA March for Justice tangibly represents the historic electoral victory achieved by the President through his promises to secure our border, act in American interests at home and abroad, and return power to citizens by ending corruption in Washington, DC and the two-tier justice system that enabled it.
Moreover, the focus of the January rally is to bring attention to illegitimate abuses of power by the judiciary, legislature, and executive branch agents, designed to politically obstruct the President in acting upon the mandate of his voters as well as protect government figures under current and previous administrations connected to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who benefitted from and/or participated in a cover-up of pay-to-play influence connected to The Clinton Foundation in regard to Russian bribery and disinformation campaign to secure access to American Uranium. This is the illicit scheme uncovered by the FBI, known commonly as the “Uranium One” scandal.
Having secured a permit from local Washington authorities as well as initial backing from a financial benefactor for $20,000, MAGA March for Justice has already caught the attention of social media figures prominently critical of the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The group plans to leverage this initial show of support to garner the interest of other media, personalities, and supporters to create a massive visual to Washington and the public in their rally, with plans to execute concurrent rallies in other cities.
MMFJ asserts that President Trump is being willfully harassed and obstructed in executing his lawful authority as President by an illegitimate Special Counsel investigation by Robert Mueller that is based upon a fake dossier created by Russian nationals illegally paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Former FBI Director James Comey’s awareness of this dossier and taking seriously of false charges made in it were used to justify and initiate surveillance and investigation with those connected to the Trump campaign.
The position of MMFJ is that the “Russia Collusion” investigation of President Trump is a result of false accusations, established by the Clinton campaign in collusion with Russian nationals, which were then wrongly investigated by Comey’s FBI resulting in the wrongful implication, surveillance, and unmasking of Trump campaign and administration officials.
This investigation is being led by officials who are all in some way involved in then-Secretary of State Clinton’s apparent play-to-play scheme with The Clinton Foundation, Russian officials, and American Uranium interests. Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation comes as a result of Attorney General’s recusal from matters relating to the 2016 campaign, which deferred the matter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is himself alleged to have known about the details of the Uranium One scheme and who wrote a Justice Department memo used by the Trump administration to justify dismissal of then FBI Director Comey, remaining at the heart of allegations that the Trump administration has something to hide in relation to Russia.
Motivating the MAGA March for Justice is the demand for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the DOJ and FBI role in covering up Clinton, Clinton Foundation, DNC, and government involvement in, as well as related allegations regarding Uranium One. Additionally, they ask that this Special Counsel investigate the role of the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and ODNI in interfering with the 2016 election through the use of fraudulent FISA warrants and illegal unmasking of US citizens, including payments regarding and those connected with the fake Trump dossier. Such an investigation would also examine the connection of Secretary Clinton’s illegal email server and unlawful destruction of evidence of more than 30,000 emails as it relates to covering up these matters, and any undue influence exerted by those in the FBI or DOJ to scuttle the previous investigation into these matters for their own benefit or protection from incrimination.

Warning: If you are easily put on the defensive, this post is going to piss you off. I suppose I should say that before almost everything I write.
We have all heard the saying “Perception is reality.” I am about to explain why this colloquialism is false. At this time it might be good to quickly review the following link which attempts to explain the question, “Is all truth subjective truth?”
It is fairly easy to see that perception is NOT reality. Combat veterans instinctively understand the fallacy of the saying. If you do not perceive a threat it can still kill you. Think of perceiving there are no enemies in the area. Your guard is down and suddenly your buddy drops from sniper fire. Hmmm, the perception was not reality, was it? I don’t mean to limit the logical understanding of reality to combat veterans. Most of us live our lives in the real world. It takes years of higher education to beat the common sense out of us.
As sayings work their way into the popular culture the humor or nuance of the original meaning is often lost. Just think how many times you have heard people say “It is what it is” (a Greg Gutfeld banned phrase.) as an answer to difficult to face things as if it is the final word. There is a time to accept things and a time to resist things, like the urge to beat the crap out of your Senator neighbor over lawn mowing techniques. Yep, that’s a felony. PS a $1,000 robotic mower investment could have saved Rand Paul serious bodily injury. Forgive me, I digress.
I have met well-educated people who actually believe you can have your own truth. The danger of believing “perception is reality” and “you can have your own truth” is it can lead to irrational behavior. In some cases, it can get you killed. In other cases, it simply lands a person in a psych ward. I’m fairly sure most Muslim Extremists believe they are winning the war and their cause is favored by their God, just before they are vaporized by a Hellfire Missile. If those same Muslim Extremists had received proper psychological care they and their victims might still be alive today.
Maybe a better way to explain what is meant by “perception is reality” is to say: “Many people do not know the difference or are unable to distinguish between their strongly held opinions and reality”. That is a mouthful. Translated into southern speak it would read, “Thar just ain’t no fixin stewpid.” Another quip, but less popular, is “Ignorance is remedial but stupidity is forever.” That is a shortened version of a quote from Aristophanes from around 450 BC.
Since 450 BC it has become difficult for the average person to distinguish between opinion and reality. A primary cause of this is 24-hour news stations mixing news with commentary. Opinion journalism does not affect people educated in critical thinking as much as those who instinctively believe what they are told by various news outlets. Liberal education no rarely teaches critical thinking. Logic is not a mandatory subject in most high schools. The result is students who grow into adults that cannot handle ideas that oppose their opinions. I get emails all the time with outrageous claims related to President Trump.
Here are some objective truths.
The stock market took off right after President Trump was elected. This resulted in an increase in wealth for all Americans with retirement accounts or investments.
There are many more but I will stop there. Anything more than stating the facts is spin. Spin is the attempt to get you to see reality from a particular viewpoint, which is when things become subjective.
A person’s thoughts or feelings can be reality-based or they can be false and even delusional. Knowing the difference is important for peace of mind and mental stability. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, you may have experienced relatives holding various political views. The most notable and often talked about are the relatives who just cannot get over having President Trump in the Whitehouse.
Whatever your view about the President is, it is more likely to be emotionally based rather than fact or reality-based. My advice to the Left is the same advice I gave to the Right when President Obama was in charge. Examine your internal views to see if they are consistent with reality. When they are aligned you will be happier.
I leave you with this quote to ponder:
An objective truth and individual reason are feared above all. ~ Jimmy Johnson
First and foremost, happy Veterans Day to all my fellow Vets! It has been an honor and privilege getting to know so many great brothers and sisters over the past 18 months. Veterans Day coincides closely with Election Day.
I shared it with some friends on Facebook. A liberal friend commented back to me:
I don’t support him in any way, but I’m glad you can find comfort in him.
That really hit me and gave me more insight into the difference between the left and the center. I have been told I’m a Centrist so I will proudly wear the title. I’ve always joked I’m part of the Alt-Center. However, I digress. The left looks for “comfort” in a leader. At least that is what my liberal friend must have assumed.
Can you imagine any veteran looking to their leadership for comfort? No, we look for our commanders to put the mission first. That goes nicely with President Trump’s theme Make America Great Again. That is his mission, America First.
On Veterans Day we are reminded of who weare. If you fought overseas you were not looking for “comfort” from your commanders.You were looking for direction that produced results with minimum casualties. I believe this is one of the main reasons the vast majority of veterans support President Trump. He is result oriented.
Where are the results? I knew he would never build a wall and have Mexico pay for it, repeal and replace Obamacare, simplify the tax code and reduce taxes or rebuild our crumbling infrastructure without help from Congress. Apart from Executive Orders, a President can only try to move Congress in the right direction. The results are there if you look at what President Trump has done.
President Trump is undoing the burdensome Executive Orders put in place by President Obama. He is responsible for the largest increase in the stock market since 1933, which helps everyone with a retirement account. America’s GDP is up in spite of several natural disasters. He has continued the trend of reducing unemployment to the lowest rate since President Johnson. He is renegotiating unfair trade deals. He is facing down the nuclear threat from North Korea and looking closely at Iran. No more turning a blind eye to the nuclear threat. ISIS has had their “caliphate” destroyed. That didn’t take long once we got a real leader in charge. Russia and Syria got their asses handed to them for using chemical weapons. Zero tolerance and no threatened red lines, just action. So much for the Russians wanting a President Donald Trump theory. I fail to see the downside of the Trump Presidency.
Veterans understand leadership and getting the job done. This Veterans Day I would like to encourage my fellow veterans to run for political office, if and only if you do NOT expect to find comfort in it. Doing the right thing is often uncomfortable and as a wartime veteran, you know that. Together we can help President Trump Make America Great Again and put America First.
I was at a couple events Friday and Monday night and met several outstanding people running for various judge positions in Pennsylvania. We, as veterans, are sworn to Defend the Constitution. Many of us tend to emphasize political candidates like Presidents, Governors and Congressmen. We often forget about the need to have solid conservative Judges at our state level. I was very impressed to hear Judge Wade Kagerise and Judge Emil Giordano speak at these two events. I had to stand and applaud when they were done speaking.
We cannot have a great country without great Judges at the state and local level. Those Judges who understand it is their job to uphold and interpret existing law rather than creating law are the type of judges we need. Remember the liberal Judges who are standing in the way of President Trump? These types of Judges rise to power because the people are not paying attention. At every leve, Federal, State and Local we need conservative Judges more than ever.
If you are in Pennsylvania or have veteran friends in Pennsylvania reach out and remind them to vote November 7th. I support the following Judges who I personally met and spoke with. They support the conservative point of view.
Judge Wade Kagarise U.S. Army Reserves (veteran), infantryman Long time Rotarian, current vice president of local club Supporter of many community, volunteer, and non-profit organizations. Endorsed by:

Vets for Trump National
Judge Emil Giordano is a Republican nominee for Superior Court. Judge Giordano is “highly recommended” by the PA Bar Association and is endorsed by the National Rifle Association, Firearms Owners Against Crime, the Pennsylvania Chamber, Pennsylvania State Troopers Association and the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police. Judge Emil Giordano currently serves as a Judge on the Court of Common Pleas in Northampton County. Judge Giordano’s parents immigrated legally to this country from Italy. His mom and dad worked in factories in New York City and met in night school where they learned to speak English. Later, they moved to the Lehigh Valley and opened a pizza shop. Judge Giordano worked behind the counter of his family’s pizza shop through high school, college and law school. Judge Giordano learned important lessons of hard work that have prepared him for his career serving us on the courts. On November 7th, please vote for Judge Emil Giordano for Superior Court.
