This outline is reliant upon: (1) intellectual honesty; (2) accepting what is, and not what we wish/hope to be; and (3) the welcomed challenge to prove it all wrong. Please, prove this analysis wrong – and if we can’t prove it wrong; not by hopes and dreams, rather by actual quantifiable evidence; then please provide possible solutions – quickly.
There are two facets, two recent researched stories, that paint a very disturbing scenario.
The first facet is a reality that Senate Security Officer James Wolfe was given, and leaked, a copy of the Carter Page FISA application on March 17th, 2017. This is important because it leads to context within the larger issue.
It is virtually guaranteed that James Wolfe received and leaked the FISA Application [SEE HERE]; however, not only was he not charged with the leak, not a single media outlet has taken the overwhelming evidence, reported on the leak – or questioned the DOJ or FBI about why Wolfe was only charged with lying to investigators in December last year.
Why? Why is that massive DC corruption story completely overlooked? What does that say about the fourth estate?
It would be entirely impossible for that story to be hidden if the DOJ, FBI, political system (within the Senate Intelligence Committee), and fourth estate were functioning correctly. Something is severely broken, and there’s no-one doing a darned thing about it.
♦ Accepting that dysfunction leads us into the more recent issue:
The details and circumstances surrounding the plot to smear Judge Brett Kavanaugh, through the use of Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford, by a group of politicians, political operatives and former DOJ/FBI officials.[SEE HERE].
However, don’t get caught up in the weeds. For now just look at the bigger picture.
Think about the known names and positions for a moment.
•Ms. Christine Blasey-Ford (academic psychologist and life-long best friend of a former career FBI agent); •Ms. Monica Lee McLean (former 24-year career DOJ/FBI insider); •Mr. Michael Bromwich (former DOJ inspector general and career DOJ/FBI official); •Mr. David Laufman (former CIA, and DOJ-NSD Asst. U.S. Attorney General); •Ms. Debra Katz (political operative and legal counsel with deep DNC attachments); •Senator Dianne Feinstein (ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee); and the myriad of media allies (Mayer, Farrow) and political operatives who each played a role in the scheme.
Again, skip the weeds. Just look at the big picture.
The smear campaign against Judge Brett Kavanaugh didn’t just involve a small team of connected insiders; their enterprise carried across multiple institutions, the legislative branch, political operations and the media. This SCOTUS smear campaign was a major effort consisting of multiple organizations (inside and outside of government) and multiple people, and it took considerable planning and coordination to execute.
Now, apply your own intellectual honesty here….
Do you really think that all of those elements described above would even consider going after a supreme court nominee with a baseless lie if they thought they would get caught?
Think about it.
What level of risk would have to exist in order to begin constructing such a fraudulent scheme? Who/What would be the “risk elements” under consideration?
To begin constructing this effort the architects would need confidence that all elements normally functioning within oversight, which under normal circumstances could catch them in the system process, were under control.
That level of confidence is beyond normal hubris.
The people working this scheme would need very strong confidence in pre-existing institutional control within the system of the DOJ, the FBI, the Senate Judiciary and the media apparatus – writ large.
If they thought the current Department of Justice or current Federal Bureau of Investigation was not under their control, or not able to be influenced by their control, they would never begin.
If they thought the current DOJ or current FBI were functioning, they would never even begin to construct such a scheme. It just wouldn’t happen; because they wouldn’t think they could: (A) pull it off; and (B) avoid accountability if caught.
In addition, they would have to believe the politicians within the Judiciary Committee and their political allies in total could operate to assist without scrutiny or questioning. Also, they would need to have confidence the Fourth Estate (media) was entirely on their side and no opposition would exist to present a risk from investigative exposure.
All of those elements would be needed in forethought in order to begin constructing the extensive plot against Judge Kavanaugh. If they didn’t have confidence in the status of those institutions they would never begin.
If we accept the premise: if they thought they would/could get caught they would never begin, then we must accept a more disconcerting reality.
They began because they had no risk of getting caught. The current institutions are corrupt.
Adding what we know about the James Wolfe outcome to the current Kavanaugh plot, and what stands in front of us is an entirely corrupt set of institutions providing no law, no order, and absolutely no oversight. Abject FUBAR.
Again, big picture. This means the current DOJ, current FBI, current Senate-side of the legislative branch, and current media apparatus are entirely dysfunctional.
When they had intelligence warning of terrorist attacks, when it was the anniversary of 9/11, when the people on the ground called it a coordinated terrorist attack, when Hillary herself told her daughter it was a terrorists attack, no, it was totally illogical to make the assumption an obscure video caused the attack. Furthermore, after assessments determined it was a terrorist attack, it was obviously a premeditated lie to blame the attack on the video. Just like with the accusations against Trump, they all knew they were lying but they just kept on lying… even to the grieving survivors of those they sacrificed for a campaign blurb claiming al Qaeda was destroyed.
Only people in the business of making excuses for Obama’s and Hillary’s failures would make such a stupid conclusion. It was nowhere near evident the video had anything to do with it.
The issue with the video was created HERE. Before the left here focused on the video and how it “insulted Islam” no one knew of it. Al Qaeda, whom Obama had claimed to have destroyed, merely used it as their excuse. Again, long before the video was known, warnings of terror attacks were given, all ignored by Obama and Hillary. It was more important to keep touting Obama’s lie that he had wiped out al Qaeda.

@retire05: The deep state is crumbling around his ears. He needs a diversion from the upcoming disaster.
@Greg: contributing to the Wikipedia encyclopedia, targeted at “students, professors, and everyday experts and fans”. It offers specific sections for teachers, users, and researchers.
Its leftist targeting for contributors and the person the article is about has no way to correct bogus info.
Who do they cite…other leftists.
@Deplorable Me, #51:
You repeated a load of assertions, but still haven’t gotten around to describing just what the supposed criminal act was. As pointed out, the worst that can be said is that they drew the wrong conclusion, and there’s plenty of reason to have done so.
That’s the whole problem with Trump’s repeated reference to “Hillary’s many, many crimes”. There actually has to be a crime, or it’s just another of his many, many damn lies that no one in the Trump peanut gallery ever bothers to question.
The reason there have never been any criminal charges is because there’s absolutely no credible evidence of any crime to prosecute.
Which is more than can be said for Donald Trump, who has knowingly ordered government subordinates to break an existing law as a means of obstructing a lawful congressional investigation. There wouldn’t be much difficulty proving that in court. It has been fully documented in the daily news. If the man weren’t a sitting president, he would already have been indicted.
@Greg: Obstruction of justice, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated, “It is astonishing that Hillary Clinton tried to delete and hide Benghazi emails and documents. No wonder federal courts in Florida and DC are ordering the State Department to stop stalling and begin releasing the 14,900 new Clinton emails.”
Trump did not destroy government documents.
Why wasnt help sent, it was 13 hours, there is nowhere on this planet our military cannot reach in much much less time than that.
The ACLU should be designated a terrorist organization
I never said there was a criminal act. However, as has been discussed, every incident such as this gets an investigation and hearings. What happened needs to be determined, hopefully with the aim of preventing it from happening again.
In this case, because Obama had been campaigning on destroying al Qaeda and Hillary was planning on running for President later, they decided they would just lie about what caused the attack. As far as I know, aside from neglect, incompetence and dishonesty, no laws were broken. However, we found out beyond any possible doubt that Obama and Hillary ignored warnings and credible threats, ignored requests for additional security, ignored pleas for help during the attack and lied at every turn in the investigation, stonewalling every request. We found out for sure that both Hillary and Obama were utterly dishonest and incompetent.
We basically found out the same thing about the same people through the three investigations of Trump. Trump did nothing wrong, but Obama, his administration and Hillary are lying scumbags. Laws HAVE BEEN BROKEN in this case, though.
Hillary’s crimes were in her handling of classified information, avoidance of FOIA and archiving requirements, lying to the FBI and Congress. Don’t worry, Hillary has committed PLENTY of crimes, which you choose to ignore while railing about imaginary crimes Trump has never committed.
