Pat Buchanan Sees A 'Never-Trump' Press In Near-Panic

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via,

“All the News That’s Fit to Print” proclaims the masthead of The New York Times. “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” echoes The Washington Post.

“The people have a right to know,” the professors at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism hammered into us in 1962. “Trust the people,” we were admonished.

Explain then this hysteria, this panic in the press over the release of a four-page memo detailing one congressional committee’s rendering of how Trump-hate spawned an FBI investigation of Republican candidate and President Donald Trump.

What is the press corps afraid of? For it has not ceased keening and caterwauling that this memo must not see the light of day.

Do the media not trust the people? Can Americans not handle the truth?

Is this the same press corps that celebrates “The Post,” lionizing Kay Graham for publishing the Pentagon Papers, top-secret documents charging the “Best and the Brightest” of the JFK-LBJ era with lying us into Vietnam?

Why are the media demanding a “safe space” for us all, so we will not be harmed by reading or hearing what the memo says?

Security secrets will be compromised, we are warned.

Really? Would the House Intelligence Committee majority vote to expose secrets that merit protection? Would Speaker Paul Ryan and White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly, who have read and approved the release of the memo, go along with that?

Is Gen. Kelly not a proven patriot, many times over?

The committee’s ranking Democrat, Adam Schiff, who earlier warned of a threat to national security, now seems ready to settle for equal time. If the majority memo is released, says Schiff, the minority version of events should be released.

Schiff is right. It should be, along with the backup behind both.

This week, however, FBI Director Chris Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein slipped into the White House to plead with Kelly to keep the Republican memo secret. Wednesday, both went public to warn the White House against doing what Trump said he was going to do.

This is defiant insubordination. And it is not unfair to ask if Rosenstein and Wray are more alarmed about some threat to the national security than they are about the exposure of misconduct in their own agencies.

The memo is to be released Friday. Leaks suggest what it contends:

That the Russiagate investigation of Trump was propelled by a “dossier” of lies and unproven allegations of squalid conduct in Moscow and Trumpian collusion with Russia.

Who prepared the dossier?

The leading dirt-diver hired by the Clinton campaign, former British spy Christopher Steele. In accumulating his Russian dirt, Steele was spoon-fed by old comrades in the Kremlin’s security apparatus.

Not only did the FBI use this dirt to launch a full investigation of Trump, the bureau apparently used it to convince a FISA court judge to give the FBI a warrant to surveil and wiretap the Trump campaign.

If true, the highest levels of the FBI colluded with a British spy digging dirt for Hillary to ruin the opposition candidate, and, having failed, to bring down an elected president.

Is this not something we have a right to know? Should it be covered up to protect those at the FBI who may have engaged in something like this?

“Now they are investigating the investigators!” comes the wail of the media. Well, yes, they are, and, from the evidence, about time.

In this divided capital, there are warring narratives.

The first is that Trump was compromised by the Russians and colluded with them to hack the DNC and Clinton campaign to destroy her candidacy. After 18 months, the FBI and Robert Mueller probes have failed to demonstrate this.

The second narrative is now ascendant. It is this:

In mid-2016, James Comey and an FBI cabal, including Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, lead investigator Peter Strzok and his FBI paramour Lisa Page, decided Clinton must not be indicted in the server scandal, as that would make Trump president.

So they colluded and put the fix in.

This alleged conspiracy is being investigated by the FBI inspector general. His findings may explain last week’s sudden resignation of McCabe and last summer’s ouster of Strzok from the Mueller probe.

If true, this conspiracy to give Hillary a pass on her “gross negligence” in handling secrets, and take down Trump based on dirt dug up by hirelings of the Clinton campaign would make the Watergate break-in appear by comparison to be a prank.

Here we may have hit the reason for the panic in the media.

Trump-haters in the press may be terrified that the memo may credibly demonstrate that the “Deplorables” were right, that the elite media have been had, that they were exploited and used by the “deep state,” that they let their detestation of Trump so blind them to reality that they made fools of themselves, and that they credited with high nobility a major conspiracy to overthrow an elected president of the United States.

Good point, as Trumpy is an insider man as well... groomed for a long time, like Reagan, Ike and all the presidents.

As for the people not being able to handle the 'truth', I thought that was the excuse the PTB use to avoid any discussion of these 'alien' bosses? Isn't that why they muck up the facts... same gameplan on 9-11, was that another example of the people not being able to handle the 'truth', or is it in fact the opposite? If the people knew the 'truth', they might not follow the PTB anymore... like good little sheep... to use the Jewish Biblical analogy.... which, BTW, is another good point in understanding WTF is really going on here in 'Purgatory'... Earth after the 'Fall'... and like any empire, it expands with the help of like minded individuals... same as those 'aliens' the people aren't allowed to know about.

This reaction seems more fitting to you... but we must consider that you are a MSNBC and Huff Post-indoctrinated, constitution-contemptuous, traitorous, racist, sexist, baby-butchering, sodomy-celebrating, marriage-devaluing, rights-from-government-not-from-God believing, 2nd Amendment-hating, innocents-murdering, criminal and domestic terrorist-empowering, illegal alien foreign invader enabling, societal-parasite-pandering Tyranny Party excrement-bagger's who smear the constitution, and the blood of those who died to defend it, with the pathogenic excreta of elitist fascist contempt drawn from their ever-present, power-and-control-greedy, liberty-hating, slavery-to-the-state-supporting, government-is-god, philosophical bag of egalitarian, neo-Marxist feces piece of cock sucking fuck that you are.....

Remember this?

Congress releases secret '28 pages' on alleged Saudi 9/11 ties

"Several government agencies, including the CIA and the FBI, have investigated the contents of the '28 Pages' and have confirmed that neither the Saudi government, nor senior Saudi officials, nor any person acting on behalf of the Saudi government provided any support or encouragement for these attacks," he said. "We hope the release of these pages will clear up, once and for all, any lingering questions or suspicions about Saudi Arabia's actions, intentions, or long-term friendship with the United States."

Next nothingburger?

This time is different?

I wish they would get red pilled - I have friends in the bay area that I can't figure out. A lot of people over there want to use their logic to make this country better by destroying it? They - and I mean a lot of they - want this country destroyed through political means. They know they will lose an outright war - so they opt for guilting everyone into just surrendering.

" that the elite media have been had, that they were exploited and used by the “deep state,” "

I think Pat gives them too much credit.  The MSM led this pogrom from the front.

>>>The MSM led this pogrom from the front.

Indeed.  It's fair to say that many typical democrat voters have been "exploited and used", but the high-end legacy media absolutely are, and have been for many years, prime actors in the promotion of the Obama-Clinton brand of Big State fascist duopoly.  

A number of media types are among the proverbial one-hundred malefactors who need to frog-marched out of their corner offices and studies, and shot in the street.

From Hillary downwards, no-one will be held accountable for anything.

While I'm here, can anyone explain to me how 63 million Americans were convinced by the Russians to vote for Trump ?

I am guessing that we are now on track to expose and expunge the Archon presence on this earth. People just need to know. Once they understand the influence of the Archons and how they manipulate people to be food sources for them, the pedogate thing becomes obvious.

They feed off our fear and conflict creates a lot of fear.

You people are just unbelievable........TRUMP HASN'T SAID A FACTUAL THING SINCE HE GOT INTO OFFICE!


The only people that think Trump is a good anything are as dumb as he is, greedy, racist or all three.  There's just no way around it now, before you could make up other reasons but no more.

Useful fucking idiot.  Your drumbeat of racism rings hollow. You turds overshot. You ended up on, and are cheering for...a team of fucking anti American scumbags.

You sound like the idiot you obviously are.

Another Pelosi Penis Puffer who think he is a "man" but still uses a tampex every month. Anyone who disagrees with these hermaphrodites is a "racist". But the truth is the one that first brings up race is the true racist, because that is always what is on their imbecile mind. Oh "Puffer" I had my communist immunity shots!

.0001 buttcoin says that the media will non-report on this.   They'll probably not even post copies of the memo, out of concern for national security.  And we're going to get 36 hours of 'nothing to see here, move along' right before the big game, after which the media won't report on it again.
