Public Support For Mueller Investigation Waning

As President Trump's approval rating rises (despite the 'resistance' best efforts), Americans are losing support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Mueller oversees the investigation into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and he also examines whether the Russian government worked with Trump during the election. The special counsel investigation began when President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.

As Statista's Sarah Feldman notes, Mueller’s inquiry has been going on for over a year now.

At the start of the investigation, almost three-quarters of Americans believed the Russia investigation should continue. Now, that same support is down to a near even split: 52 support-45 against.

Let's just arrest them all for being stupid.

Easy to prove that charge.

You have to give the pure evil spooks in the IC credit for relentlessness but for the sake of suffering hairless rats everywhere can't they fabricate a frame-up job without pissing on their own feet?

He never left.

Neither do the Spooks. 

Dune,

I refer to them as Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths.  Just rollls of the tongue I’ve repeated so much.  As well as, the absolute, complete, open, in our Faces Tyrannical Lawlessness.

Couldn’t agree more.  The biggest Espionage Operation to unseat a President via a Soft Coup & it’s amateur night.  

Pfffft...

Wouldn’t piss on Langley to put out a Fire.  Let it and the other Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths in the “Intel Community” burn to the ground.

@ C322 .... Hey, bro, you know it!

You and I both know the top end in DC is pure evil, but it's the former Boy Scouts and little former cookie peddlers who went to DC to be part of the mighty and 'pure of heart' US Government that I'm trying to shame into resigning here and get out while they can. ....... They can't help what they were told and taught in Sunday School by their Travistock Institute handlers but, for the love of frogs, toads and salamanders can't they smell the pure shit after swimming in it for a couple of years?

Don't they understand that the little demons are the ones that get the shaft when the dam bursts and We The People have had enough? .. Hearing no evil and seeing no evil doesn't get them off of the hook when they are working FOR evil and evil signs their paycheck. .. I don't care how many Boy Scout merit badges they might have at home in the closet. ............. Same goes for those record cookie sales numbers.

Yea, The Dip Shit State keeps trying to lure me out and away (probably into trouble), but this big ole bass knows a barbed hook when he sees one.

Well between the simply embarrassing emptiness of the FISA warrant application, the FBI lovebird emails stating there was no basis in fact for the illegal surveillance, the Clapper statement confirming Presidential involvement and the Susan Rice desperation memo on Inauguration Day ('Obama said we had to play by the rules, no really').....the Russiamumble investigation is clearly now POLITICALLY dead.  As in,

C: Look, I took the liberty of examining that FISA WARRANT APPLICATION when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.

(pause)

O: Well, o'course it was nailed there! If I hadn't nailed that HEROIC INVESTIGATOR down, it would have nuzzled up to those bars, bent 'em apart with its beak, and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!

C: "VOOM"?!? Mate, this POLITICAL WITCH HUNT wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through it! 'E's bleedin' demised!

O: No no! 'E's pining!

C: 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker!

'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies!

Hey DC!

"... mental retardation and extremely low self esteem ..."

 

Back in the 1980s, when an applicant went to interview for a job with the Clowns, they would first make him sit in the reception area and read and sign off on a disclosure statement listing the types of questions that the agency was legally prohibited from asking.  These concerned the applicant's sexual history, drug consumption, mental and physical health, criminal background, and other potentially compromising subjects.

A short time after the interview started, the legally prohibited questions began and would continue for much of the next two days. 

If the fresh-from-college, wet-behind-the-ears interviewee asked about this, he was told that it was necessary to prevent blackmail by foreign powers

It seemed to me at the time that there would be two types of applicants: those who realized that the same information could be used for blackmail by the Clowns, and those who responded naively with full disclosure. 

Now, if I were the one doing the hiring and looking for bright, devious and discreet people, I would hire from the first type.  If I were looking for people who would bow to organizational custom and could be easily coerced, I'd hire the latter.

Note that these questions were asked at the callback stage, prior to any job offer, and not during the subsequent security clearance process.  No doubt the agency wound up with all sorts of interesting information about people to whom it did not offer employment. Also note that this all occurred prior to the internet, and the inception of the all-seeing surveillance state -- and that those hired through this process will now be in upper level positions.

Yep, E-O, I know two of these spook recruitment clowns pretty well.

They vacuum up every bit of dirt they can everywhere they go. ... Most people are totally clueless to their Hoovering. .. If you know what they're up to they look like pachyderms going through people's pockets, bags and purses with their snakey sucker nozzle noses.

I feed them bundles lint and out right lies at every opportunity.

The whole IC apparatus is built on blackmail, theft, lies and extortion.

@ Ex- Oligarch 

It’s those thirty year plus Highly Compartmentalized Level Bureaucrats which have been entrenched since they Executed Kennedy that hold allegiance to the Deep State.

Crime Syndicate Oligarch Administrations which over decades have infiltrated Government infecting it with Deep State Spy Cells ready to activate upon a moments notice.

This could be over with leading six US Marshal Squadron’s, six AH-64 Apache helicopters, Huey’s, Humvee’s, prison buses for the immediate apprehension & arrests of George Bush Senior & Junior, Bill & Hillary Clinton & Barrack H. Obama.

 

That would put an immediate end to the last 30 plus years of Tyrannical Lawlessness.

 

I would also have the US Navy Seals immediately surround the Offices & Headquarters of the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at & in the Operations Division of the CIA, FBI & DOJ.

 

All Operations would be conducted simultaneously as all Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at Large are armed & extremely dangerous.

PERIOD, FULL STOP!

 

Scenario Operation(s) described above are run on the cheap sort to speak. Less would actually be more.  Involving more “Agencies” & Personal could threaten the take down.  As the exact Agencies themselves at the Local, State & Federal Levels have all been, in one way or another Blackmailed, Compromised & Infiltrated by the aforementioned Criminals at Large.

 

Bush Senior +Bill & Hillary Clinton + Bush Jr. (Cheany Handler) + Obama = CIA

 

That’s 30 plus years of Infiltration at all Levels of every Intel, Law Enforcement Agencies, DOJ & virtually every Level of Government, NGO & Front Companies by the aforementioned Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the CIA since they Executed Kenndedy.

 

This approach would also mentally subdue an already Divided Republic.  By arresting both sides of the False Right / Left Paradigm would effectively neutralize any Political or Social uprising by either side.

Clean Slate, again sort of speak.  

 

Edit:

An APB along with InterPol would be placed for the Immediate Arrest & Apphension of one George Sorros.

Oye Chupacabra!

Deposing the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths is a wonderful and necessary objective.  However, the pessimist in me speculates that severing the apparent top leadership might not do the job, the beast spouting new heads like the mythical hydra.

But your thinking reminds me of one of the more intriguing aspects of the early Qanon posts:  the suggestion that Trump has allied himself with the military and NSA against the CIA and FBI.  Viewed with this possibility in mind, events of the past 18 months make a lot more sense, particularly considering Trump's actions as CIC.

And Strzok's wife is assoc director of investigations at the SEC.

"Strzok's wife, Melissa Hodgman, was promoted to Associate Director in the SEC's enforcement division by the Obama administration on October 14, 2016 - 14 days before the second Hillary Clinton email investigation."

Risky.

The reason why Mueller is going after Trump isn't just standard partisanship.  It's also because it doesn't risk exposing the existing corruption of pay-to-play politics.  For starters, it's blaming non-Americans as it's starting point, which avoids putting in Americans directly in his crosshairs.

With Russiagate, they already know the chances of anything substantial or risky to K-street people is minimal.  Same cannot be said if you started turning over stones investigating Wasserman-Shultz, or better still, the Clinton Foundation.   

Investigating that would result is a lot of resistance from "the machine" that is made up of representatives, lobbyists and the elite ownership class.  That would imperil any investments by the ownership class made into regulators and legislators.  Worse, it could threaten members of the ownership class with possible jail terms.  Unlikely, but possible.

If that were to ever be exposed, the people would become very, very upset.  It also explains why the MSM is so toothless.  Because they are owned by the swamp, or paid handsomely via advertising to simply not report.

I sympathize.

But that is naive.

It presumes a functioning honest judiciary, and that doesnt exist.

PROOF:

Who does DOJ, FBI, and Special Counsel work for? From where do they get the authority to investigate and apprehend?

Is it the elected Executive they are trying to impeach?

Is it the Congress whom they threaten and obstruct?

Is it the Judiciary? The one that overtly and willfully and irreparably shattered the 4th Amendment?  That allowed them to investigate generally, with no probable cause to believe a specific crime had been committed, no oath or affirmation from two witnesses (just an absentee allegation from an entirely unsubstantiated political paid hit piece), no description of the places to be searched or the evidence expected to be found there?

That Judiciary?

If not any of the branches if government, then who?

Then why expect a plainly corrupt Judiciary would prosecute, even if it were a murder caught on camera with 100 witnesses in broad daylight?

Their bread is buttered by those you would have them convict.

On the contrary...

As Mueller uncovers more evidence against the Deep State players, it gets handed off to the honest FBI Patriots who file it for use by Huber in his Grand Jury indictment machine. Huber has been fed evidence from Mueller, the IG, and insider agents who have now been subpoenaed and deposed at length about what actually happened and how the evidence is connected.

And, by ignoring the mountain of criminality in all that evidence, Mueller is essentially committing suicide in his effort to protect HRC and the Obama team. What he is doing is a massive conspiracy to subvert justice. Trump is allowing him to dig his hole deeper until Trump pulls the rug out from the whole Democratic Deep State by unclassifying the NSA evidence.

Dishonest liberal media are still brainwashing stupid people that Trump colluded with Russia, despite their being no evidence. What ever happened to "innocent until proven guilty"??

The Dems and their liberal media whores will pay dearly for this. Say bye bye to the Supreme Court for the next 30 years at least it will have a conservative majority!!
