Tom has brought an opinion here on Nunes.

it’s easier to figure out what parts are fact and what parts are kabuki/misdirection when you read the transcript with the understanding Nunes’ comments were made after he was allowed to read the previously classified part of the Mueller SC memo.

And I genuinely want to know how he connected the dots.

Now that we know that Mueller was specifically tasked to investigate Flynn and Manafort, will you admit you were wrong on countless occasions over the past 2 years when you insisted Mueller investigating them was proof he was corrupt, out of control and trying to destroy Trump (or something to that effect)?

Tom R

TK,

Since Nunes has been allowed to see the unredacted scope memo, you can conclude Team Trump 1) trusts him with that information 2) is using him to promote the Spygate narrative Team Trump wants promoted and 3) has decided the timing is right to release this new information to the public. Nunes now knows specifically what Mueller was tasked to investigate as well as what fell out of scope of his appointment. He also stated some of the new stuff he saw is classified and he can't discuss it.

We now know for certain Mueller was tasked to investigate the Steele dossier. We also now know for certain that some previously held beliefs by the "Mueller is a Black Hat crowd" have been completely debunked. Many of the Black Hat crowd believed that Mueller's targetting of Manafort, Papodoplous, and Flynn (omitted in my last post) was definitive proof Mueller was on a "witch hunt" and using them to try and go after Trump. We now know that Rosenstein specially tasked Mueller to investigate those three.

The transcript of Nunes opening statement confirms he now knows what Mueller's primary task was: to debunk the Steele dossier and exonerate Trump of colluding with the Russians. That is the same exact point both Trump and I have been repeating for weeks. Immediately after that he goes into kabuki/gaslighting mode. Its politically beneficial for Team Trump to gaslight as many people possible, both supporters and leftwingers, into believing Mueller wanted to help the Democrats impeach Trump for OOJ. In this case perception is more important than reality. The reality as Barr pointed out is that Mueller could have formally concluded Trump committed OOJ but he didn't. IMO the reason for the gaslighting is that it continues to serve as a major distraction to divert attention from what is really going on behind the scenes to drain the Swamp and bring the Obama criminal cabal to justice. So far it is working exactly as intended.

How can you tell Nunes is engaging in kabuki? Right after he claimed Mueller's real purpose was to help the Democrats impeach Trump, he rattled off five talking points. Keep in mind Nunes now knows what was out of scope for Mueller to investigate. Three of the talking points Nunes used to justify his accusation that Mueller wanted to help the Democrats impeach Trump have absolutely nothing to do with the OOJ accusations and are things he now knows Mueller was never tasked to investigate in the first place. They are:
⦁ No comment on the close relationship between Democrat operatives at Fusion GPS and multiple Russians who participated in the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. In fact, no comment on Fusion GPS at all.
⦁ No useful information on figures who played key roles in the investigation such as Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer, or Christopher Steele.
⦁ No useful information about the many irregularities that marred the FBI’s Russia investigation.

Nunes knows all three of those fall under the scope of Horowitz and Huber (and now Durham) to investigate. For Nunes to use those three talking points as a basis for accusing Mueller of trying to help the Democrats impeach Trump when he knows none of them are true is either a sign Nunes is ignorant, completely dishonest and intentionally smearing Mueller, or he is engaging in kabuki/gaslighting to mislead everyone for reasons known only to him and Team Trump. I think highly of Nunes so I choose to go with the latter.

Ran out to the bank and Rush was still puzzled about why Trump went on Stephy's show and why he took that bait on foreign nations offering dirt on an opponent.

Maybe a listener clued him in after I got home, or maybe he is trying to see how many listeners get it, but honestly, it seems obvious to me that using Stephy was "in your face" to the Clintons, and the answering that question about dirt from foreign sources was getting all of the media to show what hypocrites they were. John Solomon's article above makes this exact point.

So, either Rush isn't as sharp as he thinks he is or he is in cahoots with President Trump and is assisting in getting the media to commit suicide.

I agree with Ignatz. Thanks to both of you!

I ran across a thread on Twitter which tied together Tesla, Einstein, the Nazis, Donald Trump Sr., JFK Jr., Rockefeller, the Rothschild's, and various scientific theories.

So Tom's theory might be out there, but it is definitely not as out there as it could be!

I think it is hard to figure out what's going on due to misdirection, false flags, foreign agencies, political operatives, etc.

That's why I don't take sides. I simply don't know.

Thanks. I don't quite see how anything in that article supports the spin you've been putting on it.

Where does it Nunes say or suggest that the scope memo, "explicitly tasked Mueller to investigate the Steele Dossier"? What he says is, " “And remember, I had these concerns that it was based upon the Steele dossier.” The implication is not that Mueller is investigating the Steele dossier, but rather investigating based on the Steele dossier. Very different!

You also say the memo: "explicitly tasked Mueller to investigate Manafort (Swamp plant?), Page (FBI/CIA plant?) and Papadoplous (neoncon plant?)."

Without those baseless parentheticals, all you've got is that Mueller was tasked to investigate those mentioned in the Steele dossier, or subjected to FISA warrants. And (not incidentally, I suspect), those who could most likely be squeezed for information harmful to Trump.

Florida Governor Signs Anti-Sanctuary City Bill Into Law

In an aggressive attempt to enforce immigration law, Florida governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law banning sanctuary cities in the state. The law requires state agencies and law enforcement entities to support federal law enforcement when addressing illegal immigration in the state.

...

There are currently no sanctuary cities in Florida, meaning the law bans any future defiance of federal immigration law from Florida's municipalities.

The law was one of the Republican governor's major campaign promises, the Miami Herald reported. It will go into effect in October.
