Stockman Warns "A Great Big Coup Is On The Way"

Submitted by David Stockman via The Daily Reckoning,

So let’s start with an obvious point about the whole Russia fiasco…

Namely, there is no “there, there.” First off, the president has the power to declassify secret documents at will. But in this instance he could also do that without compromising intelligence community (IC) “sources and methods” in the slightest.

That’s because after Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013, the whole world was put on notice — and most especially Washington’s adversaries — that it collects every single electronic digit that passes through the worldwide web and related communications grids.

Washington essentially has universal and omniscient SIGINT (signals intelligence). Acknowledging that fact by publishing the Russia-Trump intercepts would provide new knowledge to exactly no one.

Nor would it jeopardize the lives of any American spy or agent (HUMINT). It would just document the unconstitutional interference in the election process that had been committed by the U.S. intelligence agencies and political operatives in the Obama White House.

That pales compared to whatever noise comes out of Langley (CIA) and Ft. Meade (NSA). And I do mean noise.

Yes, I can hear the boxes on the CNN screen harrumphing that declassifying the “evidence” would amount to obstruction of justice! That is, since Trump’s “crime” is a given (i.e. his occupancy of the Oval Office), anything that gets in the way of his conviction and removal therefrom amounts to “obstruction.”

Given that he is up against a Deep State/Democratic/Neoconservative/mainstream media prosecution, the Donald has no chance of survival short of an aggressive offensive of the type I just described.

But that’s not happening because the man is clueless about what he is doing in the White House. And he’s being advised by a cacophonous coterie of amateurs and nincompoops. So he has no action plan except to impulsively reach for his Twitter account.

That became more than evident — and more than pathetic, too — when he tweeted out an attack on his own Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein. At least Nixon fired Elliot Richardson (his Attorney General) and Bill Ruckelshaus (Deputy AG):

I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.

Alone with his Twitter account, clueless advisors and pulsating rage, the Donald is instead laying the groundwork for his own demise. Were this not the White House, this would normally be the point at which they send in the men in white coats with a straight jacket.

Indeed, that’s essentially what the Donald’s so-called GOP allies on the Hill are actually doing.

RussiaGate is a witch hunt like few others in American political history. Yet as the mainstream cameras and microphones were thrust at one Congressional Republican after another following the Donald’s outburst quoted above, there was nary an echo of agreement.

Even Senator John Thune, an ostensible Swamp-hating conservative, had nothing but praise for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, that he would fairly and thoroughly get to the bottom of the matter.

No he won’t!

Mueller is a card-carrying member of the Deep State who was there at the founding of today’s surveillance monster as FBI Director following 9/11. Since the whole $75 billion apparatus that eventually emerged was based on an exaggerated threat of global Islamic terrorism, Russia had to be demonized into order to keep the game going — a transition that Mueller fully subscribed to.

So he will “find” extensive Russian interference in the 2016 election and bring the hammer down on the Donald for seeking to prevent it from coming to light. The clock is now ticking. And his investigatory team is being packed with prosecutorial killers with proven records of thuggery. They’re determined to find crimes that create fame and fortune for prosecutors — even if the crime itself never happened.

For example, Mueller’s #1 hire was the despicable Andrew Weissmann. This character had led the fraud section of the department’s Criminal Division and served as general counsel to the F.B.I. when Mueller was its director. And more importantly, Weissmann was the driving force behind the Enron task force — the most egregious exercise in prosecutorial abuse and thuggery in 100 years.

Meanwhile, the GOP leadership could not be clearer about what is coming down the pike.

They are not defending Trump with even a hint of the vigor and resolve that I recall from the early days of Tricky Dick Nixon’s ordeal. Of course, Nixon didn’t survive anyway.

Instead, it’s as if Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, et al. have offered to hold his coat, while the Donald pummels himself with a 140-character Twitter Knife that is visible to the entire world.

So there should be no doubt. A Great Big Coup is on the way.

But here’s the irony of the matter: Exactly four years ago in June 2013 no one was seriously demonizing Putin or Russia. In fact, the slicksters of CNN were still snickering about Mitt Romney’s silly claim during the 2012 election campaign that Russia was the greatest security threat facing America.

But then came the Syrian jihadist false flag chemical attack in the suburbs of Damascus in August 2013 and the U.S. intelligence community’s flagrant lie that it had proof the villain was Bashar Assad.

To the contrary, it subsequently became evident that the primitive rockets that had carried the deadly sarin gas, which killed upwards of 1500 innocent civilians, could not have been fired from regime held territory. The rockets examined by UN investigators had a range of only a few kilometers, not the 15-20 kilometers from the nearest Syrian base.

In any event, President Obama chose to ignore his own red line and called off the bombers. That in turn paved the way for Vladimir Putin to persuade Assad to give up all of his chemical weapons — a commitment he fully complied with over the course of the next year.

Needless to say, in the eyes of the neocon War Party, this constructive act of international statesmanship by Putin was the unforgivable sin. It thwarted the next target on their regime change agenda — removal of the Assad government in Syria as a step toward an ultimate attack on its ally, the Shiite regime of Iran.

So it did not take long for the Deep State to retaliate. While Putin was basking in the glory of the 2014 winter Olympics at Sochi, the entire apparatus of Imperial Washington — the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy, the State Department and a long string of Washington funded NGOs — was on the ground in Kiev assisting the putsch that overthrew Ukraine’s constitutionally elected President and Russian ally.

From there, the Ukrainian civil war and partition of Crimea inexorably followed, as did the escalating campaign against Russia and its leader.

So as it turned out, the War Party could not have planned a better outcome — especially after Russia moved to protect its legitimate interests in its own backyard resulting from the Washington-instigated civil war in Ukraine. That included protecting its 200-year old naval base at Sevastopol in Crimea.

The War Party simply characterized these actions falsely as acts of aggression against Russia’s European neighbors.

There is nothing like a demonized enemy to keep the $700 billion national security budget flowing and the hideous Warfare State opulence of the Imperial City intact. So why not throw in an allegedly “stolen” U.S. election to garnish the case?

In a word, the Little Putsch in Kiev is now begetting a Great Big Coup in the Imperial City.

This is a history-shattering development, but don’t tell the boys and girls and robo-machines on Wall Street.

Pathetically, they still think it’s game on.

So if there was ever a time to take advantage of the day traders and robo-machines which linger in the casino, now would be the occasion to sell, sell, sell. Once the breakdown starts there will be no respite from the implosion.

Fuck Libtard Berniecrat Mossad Agent George "i was a sex slave" Webb SweigertGeorge Webb Sweigert, is a wanna-be Israeli/ CIA disinfo agent, he  gives himself away here: "i am a berniecrat, and jewish and always rooting for mossad"Let's quote the Webbtard hero from his own YT video comments:Day 224.3. Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen

I am a zionist, so i admit **i protect Israel in the story.** Israel supports the ISIS ratline (75% of Israeli line is from the ratline i believe) But i don't believe they are involved, etc. My big focus is to get all the emails, not to shame Israel. The emails are the key to the investigation IMO.

Just like i said before, All of his "research" is carefully constructed to divert attention from AIPAC / Israel's involvement in the corrupt US government, and in organ, women and child traffickingAnyone with half a brain can figure out the Awan Brothers were employed by Mossad through AIPAC.. they were really patsies working on gathering info for the state of Israel, of course neither George or the zionist Gayson are going to mention this.

Tyler sold ZH sometime after the "unmasking" in April of last year is my guess. Colin was one of the best writers. Now all that's left of ZH is CTRL-V pasting of articles and SPAM. The new management is riding coat tails of when it was a good site for nothing but $$$, and probably sells spam accounts to turds like this "Art Van Delay" and westerndaily.WHoever is running this thing can go right ahead and delete my account.

I'm afraid that Trump will likely be "fired" in any event. It will either come from the slow, ugly, messy invesigation and impeachment (which is already underway), or if he does somehow manage to clean house and begin to function as himself in office, he will fall to a John Hinkley Jr.-type character that one of our "intelligence" agencies creates.

This is the only way America can save herself and that is do what Putin did in Russia.  Kick all these dual Israeli traitors and Jewish oligarchs out of your country. They hate America and Americans, they hate Christian America especially and want to see her destroyed and turned into a Bolshevik state where you are monitored, interrogated and murdered 24/7.

MSM is for MSM. It is all about money, with the liberal/progressive politics thrown in because that is the flavor of the day. CNN made $1 billion during the Trump campaign, a large chunk of change which likely trickled down to the faces of the network for saying the same thing over and over:

* Access Hollywood, Access Hollywood, Access Hollywood;

* Sexism, Sexism, Sexism;

* Hand Size, Hand Size, Hand Size;

* Racism, Racism, Racism;

* Hitler, Hitler, Hitler;

* Xenophobia, Xenophobia, Xenophobia;

* Watergate, Watergate, Watergate;

* Russia, Russia, Russia.

They test it out, ratings-wise, seeing what works to get the most eyeballs on their PC-themed ads. It is not like they are following stories in the public interest. That is most evident in their skimpy and inaccurate coverage of the US economy and the Big Lie, the ignoring of mass UNDERemployment of citizens. The economic issues would not boost ratings. Much of their audience is likely retired or, in many cases, relatively affluent or state-employed. The hyped melodramas above are spicier than the drier, dreary details of the economy and other serious topics.

Why don't all these Israeli lovers move to Israel? If I loved them I would go live with them. Why do they have to spend their entire lives destroying others? It is because they are the children of Lucifer and they are his servants! Don't be fooled they are not the Chosen ones you have been told they are. The only thing they have been chosen for is to be the scum of the earth!

The Attempt of a Coup by Mueller and his Minions will be the start of the next Revolution. There are 65 million heavily armed people who are just not going to stand by and watch the Donald Railroaded! I have no doubt Stockman is right about his economic predictions, but as with any Doomsayer....they just don't know the timing! Give Grandma Yellen and crew credit...they kept this shithole running longer then I ever expected! Trump has quite a bunch of Lawyers on his side, like Sekalow and crew, would like to see diGenova & Toensing added, but that may come later when things get started. The first Fuck up that was made was picking Meuller who is Comey's favorite butt buddy, then he stacked his office with Questionable appointments, he literally has no chance of making his investigation look above board. The sheer number of people who sat by and took notice during 8 years of Obutthead, then watch the Hag get a slap on the rist, now we are watching the left cause all kind of violence, not to mention the optics of entertainers supposed jokes and pictures with be-headed Trumps. Then the MSM with 24/7 Um-Russia bullshit...The amount of Cold Anger waiting to be released will be like a dam bursting. If I am Meuller and decide to try anything, he better have a great place to hide because he is the first that is going to be taken down, with his gentle giant buddy coming in a close second!

The average American is underemployed, meaning s/he is navigating a world of temp, part-time and churn jobs, many of which are low paying to boot, although not all.

Many Americans have favorable family composition or other factors in their personal lives that ensure advantages in the jobs game. They dominate the family-friendly, absenteeism-clique jobs, taking tons of time off for kids, not meeting quotas in many cases and still retaining employment.

They "need" the jobs. They, like at least 85% of their managers, have families to feed and, thus, are justified in taking all of this time off in backscratching cliques. Automation is facilitating this absenteeism, making both the highly paid and low-wage, parenting-clique workers less needed at the office.

These workplace gangs include people at the top and the bottom of the economic food chain, with whole corporate buildings almost entirely composed of moms with spousal incomes or moms with welfare and taxfare that supplements their low wages, watching each other's backs while they take off a ton of time and bully anyone out who does not fit in their clique, when they even hire them.

It is mighty noticeable when you have licenses that are purportedly required for the work and are occasionally hired for what is likely compliance purposes, i.e. having some license numbers on file in case it is ever checked. When every babyvacationing mom in the building is unlicensed, it is pretty obvious what they are doing, although some have a couple of licensed signers on staff.

They do this family-centric, back-watching hiring/retention whether or not licensing is involved, not that it is the only type of social clique-based, crony-hiring system out there in UNDERemployment Land. It is not. It is just the one that affects me so much.

Since crony moms are 100% above criticism in society, regardless of their catty viciousness, this particular gangland behavior is more difficult to navigate when you aren't one of them. You also lack their back-up income from spouses, their child support to cover rent, their free food, free rent and Child Tax Credits up to $6,269 for out-of-wedlock reproduction. And the managers know it, noting that others have "somethin' comin' in."

Working parents or "working families" who do not rely on one earned-only income stream are less stressed about mass underemployment, especially in workplaces with 98% parent employees. That is because workplaces, tax policy and all government programs are rigged for their benefit.

Then there are the youth-clique jobs, with 98% staff members in their twenties or early thirties. These people are too young to even notice the underlying dynamic.

Others coast due to civil service monopolies in government jobs with 80% minorities. There are many corporate jobs in this category as well, including big corporate buildings with government contracts and, really, almost any small or large setting with a minority manager, although I have seen the opposite a few times: a minority owner or manager with an all-white staff.

It is ALWAYS some version of social-characteristics or crony hiring/retention, mostly not falling into the identity-politics wrapper of white people oppressing Black people or of men oppressing women. Which is why people who must navigate this employment scene without the benefit of clans or cronies have such contempt for the Fake media narrative on this issue.

Before the Trump-campaign megaphone started calling attention to it, there were a ton of 98% Spanish-speaking, "EEOC-compliant" work crews around here, not that it affected me, but it certainly left many male citizens underemployed, especially since girlfriends of illegals march right down to the Department of Human Services, getting their grocery bills paid via the SS cards of their American-born children, not to mention those Child Tax Credits up to $6,269 that were handed out to illegal immigrants by the billions. Don't tell me they don't, CNN. I worked there and saw thousands of cases.

They live crammed into multi-family housing, splitting expenses, which is extremely noisy if you live beside them, forcing you to vacate your duplex to get any peace at all on the weekends. My ex and I had that quality-of-life-lowering experience when trying to rent a place within walking distance of our Main Street shop. Struggling to pay a business loan, two rents, operating expenses, twice-as-high SS taxes and all the rest, we often had to leave to get away from the noise.

Many single, male workers must cover all household bills with only their own low wages, which are lower when so many welfare-buttressed immigrant workers can work for less due to unearned income from welfare and taxfare, just like in the many low-wage, momma-dominated office jobs that I encounter as a childless, single woman.

Most workers do not have access to the better-quality jobs. They never open up, even when people take off lengthy amounts of time for personal life choices, like starting a family. After the lengthy time off for maternity leave, during which employers may hire a temp to do their work, mom workers proceed to keep their jobs, even though they take off tons of additional time beyond what is legally allotted.

When those jobs do occasionally open up, the crony mom in charge makes sure the job goes to another crony mom. And they do not have to be there for a long time to enjoy the excused time off; it often comes on the front end of their employment tenure. A crony mom gets a mom friend or a relative a rare, quality job, knowing that she plans to get pregnant and take off a bunch of time soon after taking the job. Many moms with no more experience or education than me are given flextime-management jobs that have absenteeism privileges right off the bat. It is rigged. They discuss it openly. The rigging is so built into the fake-feminist system that they do not even tip toe around it. If they say it is for kids, anything goes---anything.

If I decide to take off a bunch of time for a hobby or something that gives my life meaning, I will be fired quickly and with no mercy as a childless woman, even if it is just 5 minutes of time, in fact, and regardless of my sales numbers, etc.

Many couples are taking two of the few good-paying jobs out of the economy. These are jobs with benefits and with wages high enough to support several households in middle-class style. Congress makes sure these benefits are ongoing with $260 in tax exclusions each budget for their employers. They take two of those jobs, making sure the family is "double covered" with insurance, while millions of underemployed Americans go uninsured.

They hire/retain mostly fellow parents. And they take a ton of babyvacations, watching each other's backs in crony cliques. They have degrees, you say. Well, so do I, and, in most cases, their degrees are not in rocket science any more than mine.

They let grandparents or $9/hr babysitters with NannyCams raise their children so that they can afford more vacations, multiple SUVs, bigger houses, etc. The only issue that is ever addressed by Swamp Congress is the need for more mandated, excused time off for this group, even though employers already grant them enormous amounts of time off beyond their PTO, including for frivolities, like weeks off for travel soccer.

Childless employees with all-day, everyday attendance records are held to the minute, regardless of every-month quota meeting and other high-performance factors, including servicing the accounts of parents in low and high-wage positions during their protracted absences and keeping the overall numbers high, exhaustively. Doesn't matter. Wasted effort other than helping customers who would otherwise be inconvenienced and pumping up the bonus numbers of crony parents who will churn the childless employees like butter in a heartbeat, laughing at them for working hard while they babyvacationed in some cases. We don't "need" the money. We "do not have kids to feed" or to qualify us for taxpayer-subsidized food and shelter.

On the other hand, many moms with six-figure spouses ensure that low-wage jobs in nicer, safer areas of the city are not available to those with no other income streams who would actually be at work all day. Those moms accept low wages. They, like their welfare/taxfare mom-clique counterparts, do not need more pay due to unearned income. They make a little extra money for luxuries. They leave at 2:30 every day and take weeks off galore with no consequences.

Rather than doing the daily chores of actually raising their own children, they participate avidly in the all-important workplace mom-bonding rituals:

* Family Day picnic

* Baby Mommy Look Alike Bulletin Board Decorating Contest

* Halloween Dress-Up Day

* Adult Cubicle Easter Egg Hunt With Mom-Themed Prizes

* Tacky Christmas Sweater Contest

* Spin-The-Wheel Contest With Candy Prizes

* Bring Baby To Work Day

Fat and happy: in some cases, these pampered working parents literally meet that description. In other cases, they do not, and it is the same with the disgruntled, stressed-out, underemployed Americans. Some are fat, but have had it. Others are slender, but equally at wits end. That is why the turnout was high for the anti-Establishment candidate in the Republican primary.

Where anything beyond voting for the anti-Establishment choice is concerned, the people who have the excused time off from work and the extra money to burn, traveling around to protest things, are not the group that is underemployed. They are not the group that is employed and actually working hard, with nothing but low wages alone to live on. They are mostly youth whose parents still support them or people with access to other types of unearned income, like spousal or government income. The young ones also have different social expectations. They can get away with things that adults cannot get away with, with everyone blaming it on youthful excess.

Someone walked by and kicked the Donald's 4D chess board off the table.  He has been screwing up since day one.  Nice to see the swamp in turmoil, but the swamp is way ahead of The Donald at this point because he tried to 'play ball' rather than stand his ground from his campaign promises.  Instead of going at the swamp head on by doing things like having Hildabeat investigated and sticking to his guns on immigration, he layed in the swamp and getting sucked to the bottom.

I generally am in no hurry to read things I that immediately find myself in complete agreement with, although after I check my confirmation bias, I return to read, then think, then if needed, read again ... sometimes comment, although take that for whatever it is worth, which frankly ain't much. I don't impress easy, especially so with my own bullshit ..Fuck, these ain't the funny papers, although at times I'll grant ya, it could almost pass for it."There are eight million stories in the naked city; this has been one of them"Frankly, most of what is heralded as news, op ed certainly, is not worth the digital ink it's not written on .. As I have stated many times, it's all bullshit, all the time. Peak bullshit, although even in bullshit, I'm afraid we have a ways further to travel.
