Remove, prosecute, and jail them immediately. Because every Chinese national is under a legal compulsion to spy for Beijing--#China's 2017 National Intelligence law--never let one of them near a Federal agency, defense contractor, or utility again.

Hear hear Capn!! That is a vital lesson for any CONSERVATIVE. Obama/Holder/Lynch/Brennan/Clapper/Kerry/Rodham etc, are all sick sick sick CRIMINALS COMMIE MOTHER FUCKERS. Each and every one of them.

I've (sadly) come to believe that lying has become part of the SOP for the FBI.

Posted by: Another Bob | November 24, 2019 at 07:50 PM

I've sadly come to suspect that whoever at the FBI altered that FISA warrant may end up being the fall guy/gal for the whole criminal enterprise. We'll have to wait and see how this plays out - whether new information is revealed and how far the Senate is willing to go in following up on these matters.

If you pull one thread, it's likely to lead to more threads. We won't know until December if the Congress is willing to do this. It remains to be seen how far Attorney General Barr is willing to go on this as well.

From what's been posted here earlier today, including the connections between various Foundations and Institutes with members of the Senate (possibly the House as well), they may let this go only so far. If everything we suspect were to come out, it could topple the government. Perhaps that's just what the Commander-In-Chief wants to happen. Sounds like a good way to clean house, but just think of the seismic after effects!

Another Bob

Amom, on the right side of link text, you’ll often find question marks followed by seemingly random text. Frequently that is stuff like tracking data, not essential to getting someone to the page you’re linking. Often, you can delete the q-mark and all that follows, and therefore may not need link-shorteners.

GUS

Barbara, add into your equation, how long this and other reports have been STALLED. Our government is NOT working for US. Trump has some people at the TOP who are trying to raise hell. But their very employees are criminals and are obstructing.

I agree completely, Gus. Just look at some of the ridiculous testimony given at Schiff's kangaroo court. Not just speculation, presumption and hearsay. One of the last guys to testify (Holmes, I believe) did so on the basis that he could actually hear what President Trump said on the other end of a telephone conversation. Of course, his ability to hear that conversation ceased when the topic changed to Sweden.

Instead of a timer for all to see, they should have had a B.S. detector set up in that committee.

There have been recent articles linked here about how the derp state has made voting our way out of their malign grip on the country impossible. Whether that's true or not, Trump isn't acting like he believes it. I said yesterday or before that there's a third of the country that's borderline impossible to get to support the country. If DJT can galvanize the other two thirds into pulling in the same direction, I like the chances.

MissMarple2

I use that 77,000 figure of State Department employees with everyone I talk to.

There are 195 separate countries in the world. That means we have almost 400 employees for each nation. That seems pretty excessive to me. It does to everyone I quote that figure to, also, especially anyone who saw the impeachment hearings, who were NOT impressed with any of the State people, especially green check bow tie guy!

JM Hanes

I'm trying not to have much in the way of expectations on the IG report one way or the other. I presume that absolutely everyone who leaks anything has an ulterior motive for doing so. Even if there were nothing in it someone might say there is, because it's the last chance to make someone move out of position in fear and give themselves away. There are reasons Sidney Powell might exaggerate the benefits to her client, say, in hopes that the judge's reading might be influenced in some way. How, in fact, would she know much about it, when the people who have been given copies to vet are all on the other side?

Nobody seems to be revealing what all these predications are based on, or where the leaks are coming from, so I'm just treating them all as pre-game speculation till the 9th, and hoping it's not the 9th of Never,

From a friend of a friend (that’s ok in Peach Mint hearings, right?):

Spencer did not come from the BO administration. He is a highly respected and competent individual who was trying and beginning to succeed turning the Navy in the right direction after the disastrous 8 years of Ray Mabus. Esper fired him today. Big mistake and will cause further turmoil in the Navy SpecWar higher echelon. Navy Special Warfare Command had every right to hold the proceedings regarding denying Gallagher the right to wear his Trident. Top Navy SEAL commanders will now leave in droves.

Sandy Daze

SEALs are outsized individuals, with outsized performance, and outsized opinions.
It is no surprise, and also very unfortunate that the strain of 18 years of combat have magnified the fault-lines within the community.

The issues start at the top, with poor behavior examples from, for example, retirees McRaven and Harward.

Contrast that with retired SEALs Maguire & Kernan who simply continue to 'do their duty' in a principled & direct manner.

~~~

I wouldn't expect POTUS to direct that an aviator's wings be restored if those wings had been pulled because of lack of fitness to fly.

I can see where the SEAL community might think the same with Gallagher. He won't deploy to combat again. It is his fondest wish that this be put behind him and that he be allowed to retire quietly, I think the date is 30 Nov 19.

But, for NavSpecWarCom to consider pulling Eddie Gallagher's Trident now, after all that has come to pass is petty and vindictive--and well, just not that smart. Moreover, the POTUS has spoken, the Commander-in-Chief has issued guidance, it is the arrogant officer(s) & civilians between the CINC and Gallagher, who think they know better.

Execute the Plan of the Day, or resign.

Meanwhile, STFU.

Spencer--don't let the hatch hit you on the ass on the way out.

As for MT's friend's comment that senior SEAL leaders will retire in droves over this matter, NFW.

If some do tender their resignations early, they probably would fall more in the mold of the political, globalist SEALs (e.g. McRaven and Harward.) The SpecWar community should welcome these decisions (if & when) to leave early. The force will be stronger without their corrosive example.
