Republican Intelligence Committeemembers' Memo and today's Federal Court Ruling shows that it's time to "Cry 'Havoc !' and let slip the dogs of war"


---  "....  Knowledge will forever govern ignorance,  and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power that knowledge gives...."                                   ---   A Democrat Congressional Committee Chairman, long ago and far away, using James Madison's words to make a point


  ---  Oh, what the hell !!!  A people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves.....  PERIOD.....   

                         ---    A Brooklyn Republican blogger, here and now, using James Madison's words to make a point



“It’s unfortunate, but not at all surprising, to see a FISA court judge side with secrecy over transparency on the very day the House Intelligence Committee released a very troubling example of abuse of trust within the FISA system”                          ---  Christopher Bedford, editor-in-chief, Daily Caller News Foundation



Shakespeare's line about unleashing the "Dogs of War"  isn't just great drama; and it isn't just great literature.   In times like these, it is much needed advice.....


Devin Nunes needs to have his statue raised-up in a Hall of Hero-Defenders of our failing and dying noble enterprise, and rapidly disappearing republic




Yesteray's Daily Caller strongly touted the release of a House Intelligence Committee memo,  as shedding much-needed light on strong evidence of misconduct high in the  Barack Obama Administration  ---  most notably focusing on compromised operators in  the FBI and Justice Department.  At the same time DC compared Congress' release of the memo with a same-day ruling by US District Judge James Boasberg   >>>  against civilian media efforts to get the FBI to release several memos written by disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detailing his take on several private conversations that he had with President Donald Trump [probably memorializing Comey's and the President's comments on matters related to those dealt with in the House Intelligence Committee's memo]  (See  "BREAKING: On The Same Day Trump Releases the Nunes Memo A Federal Judge Keeps The Comey Memos Secret" by Richard Pollack,  2/2/18,  The Daily Caller/ Investigative Group  [http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/02/comey-memo-lawsuit/]).


According to the article in the Daily Caller  ---  Judge Boasberg refused to release former FBI Director Comey's documents on this basis:  they were still being used by Special Counsel Robert Mueller [and his lynch mob of pro-Democrat lawyers and investigators] looking into largely unproven,  and now discredited allegations of Russian collusion with Trump and/or his 2016 campaign associates.  The scumbag jurist unabashedly ruled in favor of the "Deep State"  or  "Shadow Government" ---  saying the following:   “....  [T]he Comey Memos, at least for now, will remain in the hands of the Special Counsel and not the public.”

This memo was the biggest nothing burger since the pentagon papers. All the petagon papers said was we cant win the war in Vietnam. Well gollllee !! In think by 1971 we knew that.

Hype must be everything.

YOU ARE WRONG ABOUT NOW --- AND YOU ARE WRONG ABOUT THEN


The various public revelations about the existence of "Pentagon Papers" in June 1971, together with their publication, directly led to the unmasking of whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg, and more importantly, to the formation of the White House Special Investigative Unit, called the "Plumbers," in July of 1971. The "Plumbers" purpose was to "plug leaks";
and their first job was to dig-up negative info to discredit Ellsberg, and one of the things they did was break-into Ellsberg's shrink's office ( that was only the start of their bungling burglaries).....

Flash forward to the Nunez-GOP Majority Report out of the House Intelligence Committee --- this memo is a forward or synopsis of specific acts evidencing "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" in the Obama White House to benefit Hillary Clinton, AND >>> to interfere with the election, inauguration and early administration of his official duties by Donald Trump --- or in a simple easy to understand phrase, an attempted Coup d'Etat.

You can keep calling it a nothing burgher --- Good Luck With That !!!!!

I read the memo. Take Carter Page from Poughkipsie out of the picture and you have no FISA warrant. Trump team says nobody knew Page.

So where did Carter Page come from?

BTW: I also read The Pentagon Papers, the Knapp Commission report, the State and Federal Constitutions. My question is why cant I find a job?

He is definitely a fruit from a poison tree, and now there's evidence that Obama's personal team at the FBI and DOJ made sure of that.

99% of FISA warrants are granted. All they need are a few sheets of paper on Carter Page and the DOJ gets to listen in on Trump operation.

You said, ".... All they need[ed were] a few sheets of paper on Carter Page and the DOJ [got] to listen in on Trump operation." Why didn't you finish it; and describe the complete information trail ??? After the FBI/ DOJ had the information, Obama Administration friendlies in the FBI and DOJ made sure it was bumped up to the White House, and then it worked its way over to the DNC, the press and the Hillary Clinton Campaign.

Follow the timeline.....

That there is a Cynthia Nixon, who is being talked about by anybody here on this '...

In Brooklyn the Republicans are now suffering from a Ghorra phobia.

800am is correct the fact that Bob Capano and the Brooklyn Reform Party get more attention and press than Ghorra and the Brooklyn GOP is also a testament to thi point.

DON'T YOU SOMETIMES FEEL SURROUNDED BY DARKIES AND SWARTHIES, MOUTHY WOMEN, IDIOTS, QUEERS AND NUTS --- YOU KNOW, MAINSTREAM DEMOCRATS ?????

I don't know who you are, or why you responded to 2:18 PM the way you did..... However, your remarks did strike a sore spot with me --- a really sore spot.

What's up with this part: "I mean we are [R]epublicans?"

If you are suggesting that all commenters on my blog SHOULD BE REPUBLICANS --- Please, disabuse yourself of that notion..... That's never been my intent; and I know for a fact, that many of the commenters on this blog ARE NOT REPUBLICANS.

If you were being ironic --- I fail to see any purpose in your use of irony.

If you were trying to be normative in any way --- you are way off-base and/or absolutely wasting your time.

Now, to my sore spot. Too many Brooklyn Republican operators (NB: there are no Republican operatives) have divided loyalties; and they always have. Some do the bidding of Democrats, some do the bidding of the Conservative Party and some follow the ebb and flood of (a) shifting insider cabal(s), like, let's say, REBNY or the Cathedral Club, to cite two examples. Some even dabble in all three categories --- like Marty Golden, for one.....

Keep in mind this long ago and far away aphorism by Robert Owen: “All the world is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.” Maybe, you might be familiar with it in this paraphrased iteration instead: "All the world is mad but me and thee, and I think I have doubts about thee?"

NICE TOUCH, QUOTING THE BARD BACK AT ME FOR A CHANGE --- GOOD CONCEPT, GOOD EXECUTION --- BUT YOU DIDN'T STICK THE LANDING


Caesar and Brutus are from long ago AND far away, and not in a Jo Stafford way.....

If you want to use Shakespearean references talking up what I'm reading about Congressman Donovan and Liam McCabe, it should leave nothing to the imagination; and the paraphrase needs to look like this:

".... For Liam, as you know, was Dandy Don's angel:
Judge, O you gods, how dearly Danny loved him (and his rugged handsomeness)!
This was the most unkindest cut of all;
For when the noble Dan saw Liam stab,
Ingratitude, more strong than traitors' arms,
Liam quite vanquish'd Dan: then burst the Congressman's mighty heart....."

Anonymous said...

Dan Donovan kept every single Grimm staffer on the payroll in Brooklyn even though he was advised to clean house. This is how the Brooklyn Cons repay him and how Jerry keeps his end of the bargain. Did they think they were so clever that Donovan supporters wouldn’t find out about Liam organizing for Grimm?

Anonymous said...

Where are you people getting your 'information'?
The Conservatives are supporting Donovan, including Kassar and Long.
What makes you think Liam McCabe is 'organizing' for Grimm?
This all sounds like a lot of fake news. Gail, get to the bottom of this.

Anonymous said...

Ah the Cons thought they were so clever that it wouldn’t be exposed. If Kassar and Long were honorable people then they would be embarrassed that their ground team is supporting Grimm. But they’re just hedging their bets for the pork that comes with the Congressional. Liam personally organized event at the Leif for Grimm that took place on Tuesday night, kind of corny that he didn’t show up as if that would fool anybody.

we all know the Leif is Liams place!1 Remember he had his campaign kick-off there, and i hear he is spending a lot more time there again lately!

Dan Donovan does indeed have a relationship with Craig Eaton. Eaton is the one who tipped him off to the problems that the Brooklyn Office was having last year hence the arrival of Robert Birkhead from Staten Island, even Donovan knew not to hire any more hacks from BK Cons. The Cons golden boy Liam is backing Grimm and Donovan can read the writing on the wall.

I was at the meeting..Donovan praised Ghorra and Kassar and said no relationship with eaton

Anonymous said...

Actions speak louder than words. Donovan is no dummy, he already cut off the gravy train for the Cons in Brooklyn and it’s only a matter of time before he has to acknowledge the obvious that Liam and Jerry stabbed him in the back. Without Liam the conservatives are useless on Election Day and therefore useless to Donovan. Ghorra’s latest political guru of the day is not old enough to drink. The jig is up, pretty soon it’s going to be Donovan doing the asking for Eaton’s support.

Kassar also sent out frantic emails assuring everyone that Liam is on board with Donovan and then got embarrassed once the cat was out of the bag regarding his support for Grimm. Fran Vella still has a job with Donovan but when they needed backup they called in a guy from Staten Island and didn’t ask Fran or Jerry what they thought. First Donovan has to survive the Primary and if he’s relying on the Brooklyn Cons for his support, we’ll probably be discussing Eaton possibly supporting Grimm in the general.

Eaton does not have enough influence with Donovan to hire or fire anyone but he does have Donovan’s ear which is driving Kassar nuts. Either Kassar and Long are held in low esteem by Liam, or they were secretly encouraging him to stab Donovan in the back, either way Donovan can read the writing on the wall.

As long as Fran , the Vice Chair of the bklyn conservative party and Kassar right hand person is Brooklyn director, all talk of any friction between Donovan and bklyn conservatives and Kassar is obviously just Eaton trying to create something for Donovan paying him no attention , as the Congressman said himself last night.

Anonymous said...

If it was all talk, Donovan would have hired more of their cronies instead his people from Staten Island to work in Brooklyn. He would have rehired Liam, and either way Liam wouldn’t dare back Grimm and defy an incumbent being officially “supported” by the cons. Talk about giving Eaton more credit than he deserves.
