Dissecting the failed coup

Historian Victor Davis Hanson summarizes the failed Deep State coup directed at President Donald Trump and calls for prosecuting those who staged it:
Weaponizing the Deep State

During the 2016 election, the Obama Department of Justice warped the Clinton email scandal investigation, from Bill Clinton’s secret meeting on an airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, to unethical immunity given to the unveracious Clinton aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, to James Comey’s convoluted predetermined treatment of “likely winner” Clinton, and to DOJ’s Bruce Ohr’s flagrant conflict of interests in relation to Fusion GPS.

About a dozen FBI and DOJ grandees have now resigned, retired, been fired, or reassigned for unethical and likely illegal behavior—and yet have not faced criminal indictments. The reputation of the FBI as venerable agency is all but wrecked. Its administrators variously have libeled the Trump voters, expressed hatred for Trump, talked of “insurance policies” in ending the Trump candidacy, and inserted informants into the Trump campaign.

The former Obama directors of the CIA and National Intelligence, with security clearances intact, hit the television airways as paid “consultants” and almost daily accused the sitting president of Russian collusion and treason—without cross-examination or notice that both previously had lied under oath to Congress (and did so without subsequent legal exposure), and both were likely knee-deep in the dissemination of the Steele dossier among Obama administration officials.

John Brennan’s CIA likely helped to spread the Fusion GPS dossier among elected and administrative state officials. Some in the NSC in massive and unprecedented fashion requested the unmasking of surveilled names of Trump subordinates, and then illegally leaked them to the press.

The FISA courts, fairly or not, are now mostly discredited, given they either were willingly or naively hoodwinked by FBI and DOJ officials who submitted as chief evidence for surveillance on American citizens, an unverified dossier—without disclosure that the bought campaign hit-piece was paid for by Hillary Clinton, authored by a discredited has-been British agent, relied on murky purchased Russian sources, and used in circular fashion to seed news accounts of supposed Trump misbehavior.
What is strange, however, is that despite being at the height of his popularity and all-but-cleared of the false charges of the failed Deep State coup, Trump appears - appears - to be submitting to the neocons. Is it possible that this submission is what brought the attempted coup to a close? Or is he simply playing rope-a-dope again prior to throwing a few knockout punches?

Always be cautious about concluding that anyone is finished, be it the creatures of the Deep State or the God-Emperor.

I can't be the only one who wants these treasonous f*ckwads hanging from the end of a rope? All they care about is power and wielding it to malicious ends, country be damned.

I saw a segment on a local news program about Andy McCabe who wrote a book about how the FBI is protecting us all from that meanie Trump. It was to laugh.

Blogger SemiSpook37 February 19, 2019 11:12 AM  

With the recent wave of info coming out of Q, I'd say this is more rope-a-dope than anything else.

If you look at the statement he made when he signed the omnibus last week, the fact that he openly stated that he was going to ignore certain provisions based on his constitutional authority was a big tell, at least to me, anyways. If you're allegedly doing the bidding of the neocons, you don't make a statement like that. Especially if you're in the middle of pulling forces out of places we really shouldn't be operating within in the first place, which they also tend to not like.

That's just how I see it. I could be wrong.

He did not know me from Adam. (And that is the way it is going to stay.)

I have passed Lisa Page and Andy McCabe on the street. Multiple times.

They are free as birds, even though Strzok and McCabe are technically under investigation.

There's so much I admire about Victor Davis Hanson -- the historical output, the even handed tone in which he delivers his speeches, his continuing to live in his family's Selmo homestead instead of an overpriced house that he could likely afford in Palo Alto or San Francisco.

But it's the prose writing skill that I admire the most. The ability to summarize without dumbing down, and the precision of his phrasing. It's pretty remarkable, and worth studying in itself.

As for the much deserved indictments of the deep state operatives as well as the Clintons, I will believe it when I see it. However, timing it for the 2020 election season could be optimal. The leftist meltdown coupled with public exposure of the depth and breadth of their crimes could create an even bigger Trumpslide.

What is quite striking to me is the utter incompetence of this mob of stooge and retards. With the limitless access to private emails through NSA, and the resources of the. FBI, they did so little. To me, they are the equivalents of the Soviet holdovers who bungled the August Putsch against Gorbachev in 1981.

Blogger Barbarossa February 19, 2019 11:28 AM  

Perhaps President Trump has concluded that individual prosecutions don't do nearly the damage to the Deep State as simply allowing John Brennan and Peter Strzok to flap their lips on the public airwaves.

Of course, the follow-up, once these organs of the Deep State are thoroughly discredited, is to replace not reform them.

Blogger tublecane February 19, 2019 11:29 AM  

When I start thinking the Deep State is too stupid, it occurs to me that there are layers upon layers of stupidity. Though I know they're dirty and I know the outlines of what they did, I don't actually know how stupid it was. They've got me there.

Take the FISA warrant. There are various culpable parties--Clinton campaign, the FBI, the CIA, British intelligence, the MSM, the Justice Department--and I know basically how it happened. But I don't know everything, and I'd have to dig in to fully explain it to myself. And digging into stupidity makes one feel stupid.

I imagine lawyers often write not just to be precise or persuasive but also just to bore the heck out of people. And good lawyers are ones who can cut through the fog of boredom to find the salient points. Similarly, spygames are played in fogs of nonsense.

Polling has put a floor on the number of people who believe Russia stole our elections at ~40%

Just because a mission moved to secondary objectives doesn't mean it "failed".

The surface-level picture they've managed to put together is the Trump admin being thoroughly criminal (xyz number of indictments and "that witch hunt sure is finding a lot of witches!").

Getting a plurality of the populace to side with abuses of the FISA process and corruption on this level can not be classified as a "failure" for the side of evil.

This.

And the irony of course is that all these yahoos think that Trump is the stupid one.

As for future indictments, think Sun Tzu. Don't attack your enemies if they are destroying themselves.

Look at the pictures of Andrew McCabe's face. This is a man who knows he has fucked up royally. Let him twist, let him have plenty of sleepless nights.

For those who want indictments right now, consider the long view. Imagine Trump not only wins in 2020, but wins the popular vote. His AG then issues indictments.

A few days later, Trump strides to the podium, and says, "You know, we had plenty of evidence to do all this earlier, and maybe we should have. But I wanted to be patient, and let things take their natural course, and not to be too hasty."

Ouch, say ALL the reporters, and anti-Trumpers, who have invested SO much in thinking Trump impulsive, and a loose cannon.

Blogger InformationMerchant February 19, 2019 11:42 AM  

There have been people pointing out Roger Stone's arrest and the end of the government shutdown were fairly close together and other things that follow that narrative.

I think it's less dramatic. Trump has always been known to delegate, he has surrounded himself with the worst people. He is a advised by the enemy, stuff is kept from him and he doesn't read everything that he signs.

He has repeatedly supported extremely harsh penalties for drug dealers in other countries and even threw around talk about possible harsh penalties for drug dealers in the USA. Meanwhile he championed the First Step act. This isn't a make or break issue for him, it's just a recent example of him effectively attacking something he pushed, his comments a week or so ago are being used to attack him from the right.

The recent spending bill was the worst, he can do the W Bush thing of considering the legislative branch only capable of offering suggestions in bills that he signs, but that's how we get more swamp. The amount of horrific things that are all capable of ending his presidency in that bill is insane. The USA now gets to rely on judges interpreting the President's comments over the contents of a bill in order to avoid the child trafficker amnesty, the local government wall vetos, etc.

At least the Supreme Court looks to be right wing for a while.

Blogger Damelon Brinn February 19, 2019 11:43 AM  

It's nice to see the crimes and connections we read about on /pol/ 1-2 years ago being proven and showing up in more mainstream sources, if ever so gradually. Now if we could just see the other part that the same people talked about: that Trump's people knew about it all and were going to blow it wide open.

Blogger Jeroth February 19, 2019 11:47 AM  

It feels like submission to me. Remember, he also ended the shutdown on the VERY DAY that Roger Stone was dramatically arrested. Now he signs this spending bill, and the lid blows off the coup attempts.

The 48 hours rule didn't change how bad that bill was. The best defenses I've seen from apologists is that this is a spending bill, not an amendment to existing immigration law, so the poison pills "are pointless". Then why are they there at all?

I would have some hope that he was planning an attack if he wasn't constantly whining about the coup attempt as if he were a private citizen on Twitter. The bluster is getting very old, even embarrassing.

This is definitely part of a big problem.

The NPCs are pumped up by the Swamp to defeat "evil, corrupt, criminal, traitor, KKK, Nazi Trump". Meanwhile, Trump is lost in the weeds of lawmaking and moneymaking. Muh GDP. Muh budget. Muh courts. There is nothing grand or heroic about #JobsNotMobs.

Trump needs to take back control of the #DrainTheSwamp narrative. It is what got a lot of people, including myself, truly on board with his campaign in 2016. Declaring war on an evil empire that wants us destroyed and dead.

IIRC Mitch McConnell told Trump to tone down the rhetoric and be a team player. And it has been a big mistake. Trump first started losing steam when he was pushing the horrendous Ryancare bill instead of attacking it. Republicans are a quisling party and Trump should be attacking their their quisling bullshit all the time. Trump was at his best in the Republican primaries when he was free to attack globalist traitors on all sides. Now he is burdened with the deadweight of Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and their ilk.

What is the proportion of Americans (not the big mouthed or bot versions) who actually subscribe to the "Hillary Won," lunatic fringe notions now paraded on The News?

If Trump's Team (Q etc) are acting to influence The Masses, then there must be a large contingent of people predisposed to believe The Big Lies in which we're immersed. I find this troubling, but it backs my longstanding view, that we're on track to resume the English Civil War, the war between those who see the coercive state as a necessary evil to be minimized (Aristocracy/meritocracy without open access to power) or a system to be used by the most ambitious and Machiavellian to move humanity toward Heaven (Utopia) on Earth. (Right vs Left.)

We have a front-row seat to an OPEN Coup d'etat by the Left's forces within the Permanent Bureaucracy and America's Institutions (news/entertainment media and educational establishment, AKA Leftism's Cathedral) to turn back any even-minor attempt to stop the Leftward spin of Cthulhu.

This was always to be a war between white people (black/brown/yellow people are simply imported mercenaries or totems of the Left's field officers.)

My view is that the Left won so much that its next steps are simply too objectionable for even soft-Left normies. The Tranny thing is cognitive dissonance too shrill to ignore, and pedophilia/NAMBLA-enablement/full disarmament of taxpayers (in order to render us utterly defenseless against the parasite class) is a Rubicon not to be crossed in peace.

This is the Trump Phenomenon. It's the Center trying to stop the Left Loons, when the Left is DEFINED by its most-left contingent (the LOONS!) Trump's opposition to the UniParty is the Country trying to shed its LUNATIC Fringe, who largely arrogated control of the Judiciary and Bureaucracy while taxpayers labored, raised kids and saved for retirement.

Win, lose or draw, Trump's Admin is but the first signal that the trend of the last 50 years has run its course, and given that during that time the entire coercive apparatus of the USA became saturated with Leftists, a change from All Left, All The Time will come with great conflict. There is no peaceful way to "retire" all these millions of Left-lunatics-in-power.

The Coup we now watch is but the opening Act in a much larger, much longer tragedy. We baked our ruin into the cake these past 50 (or 150, or 400) years.

There is a lot of very wishful thinking going on with the idea that there are no goods against the President.

The Mueller investigation has been very tightly controlled - no leaks to speak of, no hints at what it really has. The list of associates charged with process crimes indicates that they are being rolled up to testify against a Trump family member or the President himself.

It is a major mistake to assume that the worst is over. The list of people who were caught lying is extensive, and they are lying about something.

There must be indictments and convictions on sedition and/or treason to make the next crop of deep-staters have second thoughts about the level of corruption they decide to engage in.

I don't know about "submitting to the neocons," but he has been willing to accommodate the Deep State right along. The reason for a non deal is that the other side won't give him anything. At lest so far. Part of it may be his real estate background. He has spent most of his life dealing with big city party machines. In real estate you don't win against a corrupt system, you get in on the corruption and do what needs to be done to get your way. His behavior as president strikes me as being similar to that.

And it did seem like that Roger Stone arrest was a turning point.

Except that it totally did. Once people had a chance to stop reacting to each other's social media outrage and actually read the thing and the White House response, the narrative changed quite a bit. Most of the Chicken Littles who had been saying it was The End dropped the subject, presumably to recharge their worry-batteries for the next round.

I would have some hope that he was planning an attack if he wasn't constantly whining about the coup attempt as if he were a private citizen on Twitter. The bluster is getting very old, even embarrassing.

I don't disagree with you there. I can see the value of portraying himself as less powerful than he actually is, so that if Deep State actors are arrested, he can say he didn't order it. But the media will call it tyranny and put it all on him anyway. They're even prepared to say Mueller is a Trump plant the instant he drops his investigation or charges any Democrats. The powerless act won't stop that, but it may demoralize his supporters who follow his feed, though I don't know why any would. That's not what it's for.

Today we see The News as so openly false that even a small child notes how a report on Ginsberg conflated file video footage from years ago with claims about her health. We see every other commercial featuring Magic Negroes married/coupled to whites (9 times out of 10 it's a black guy/white gal.)

Things tend to be easier when you are on the outside criticizing. But Trump won and had to govern. He didn't have a proper team ready. It shows how being a political outsider has its disadvantages when you try to govern. It also shows why having these gigantic bureaucracies makes meaningful reform next to impossible.

Being a NYC RE developer, he had to have some sort of idea of the kind of bureaucratic and corruption nightmare awaiting him. But perhaps he wasn't as cognizant of the partisan nature of these orgs and how out of control these departments really are.

Blogger DonReynolds February 19, 2019 12:24 PM  

When a crime has been committed, even a serious crime, the solution to treason and corruption and embezzlement is well understood, whether in the government or in the private sector. Our System is not brought into question just because we had a pest problem and had to spray for bugs. There have always been criminals.

But what we have these days is not simply crime and other corruption. What is called into question is Our System of government and the credibility of that form of government. This is much more serious and no amount of firing squads and hangings can restore confidence and credibility, once it has been shown that the System simply does not work the way it has in the past. We do not have a problem with ants and cockroaches. Termites have chewed away the base plates under the walls and the floors are sinking in the middle. A good vacuum cleaner is not going to fix this and we know this because sunlight is starting to show through the cracks in the walls and there are big water spots and sags in the ceilings. We are about to lose the house altogether.

And that is the problem with the loss of confidence and credibility. It may not be restored by punishing the guilty individuals if the System is found to be flawed or weak.

There will either be a wall or there won't be a wall at the end of Trump's presidency, after he signed the bill there was nothing that could be done, so it's just a waiting game now. It isn't controversial to assume the left will try to use the bill to legally challenge the wall being built, there were going to legally challenge it with little more than thin air before.

The rest of the bad stuff will also be used by the left. Why give them ammo? 1 billion dollars for fencing in already existing styles in blue areas with local governments given veto power wasn't even a good deal.

His biggest miscalculation might have been his trust in his ability to win through negotiation. In business, even if you have nothing in common with the other party, you know he wants to make money. That gives you some common ground and a hook you can use to earn or enforce his cooperation, and Trump is very good at finding that.

Now he's up against people who offer no common ground at all, because what they want is he and his supporters dead. That outranks everything else they want, so there's not much room for negotiation. His skills in that area have been more useful in tricking them than in making actual agreements, as when he suckered Pelosi and Schumer into saying they settled the border question over dinner.

If he's going to Drain the Swamp, it won't be through negotiation. It will be through arresting people and putting them on public trial. It has to get to that point one way or another, if it's going to make a difference.

Reactionaries have known and named the true nature of the beast since... well, since the middle ages, but it's been easy to find on the internet since over 10 years ago, and there's some evidence that Trump Jr. and Stephen Miller stay up-to-date on it.

If we're speculating, my guess is several people tried to warn him, but just like Steve Bannon, he sidelined them in order to push his hyper-optimistic purple-pilled boomer civic nationalism. His primal vice is not being too trusting, it's hubris. For instance, I bet he had and maybe still has a vision almost like KPK's above - of being lauded and loved for his moderation and pragmatism.

@40: "If he's going to Drain the Swamp, it won't be through negotiation. It will be through arresting people and putting them on public trial."

Tell it to William Barr, to whom our attention now turns.

Here's the thing that Mr. Barr knows: The FBI has been pulling rogue shit for decades. Think Mark Felt and Nixon. (Woodward and Bernstein were willing FBI tools.)

The shitbirds who ran the bureau during the Obama years (not to mention the shitbirds who ran the Obama DOJ) are true legends in their own minds. Fuckups all the way down. (Hey Loretta, way to get caught on the tarmac with Bill Clinton!)

The problem that Barr faces is this: The Obama-era shitbirds messed up so badly that people are now starting to view the bureau as a major threat to the Republic. I do.

This dynamic, if it continues, could lead to a groundswell of support for abolishing the FBI and starting over.

Barr doesn't want this.

Mueller doesn't want this.

Billy and Bob are pals.

At best, we can expect Barr to prosecute a few people in order to protect the House that Hoover Built.

If nothing happens at all, blame it on Kompromat.

I don't rule out the possibility that Trump is just letting his boomer enthusiasm get the better of him, certainly that is the neatest explanation for what we've seen. But it is possible that he went into this with the idea that he needed time to learn how the government worked before he tried to change it. If that's the case, it makes sense for him to surround himself with competent enemies rather than inexperienced friends.

There will come a point of exhaustion, and perhaps it will come soon, when the hashtag resistance admits defeat. In fact, that already seems to be happening in parts of the media. When that day comes, a president on top of his brief can bring in inexperienced loyalists, and be able to guide them in a way he would have found impossible on day one, thanks to his own inexperience and the still vigorous opposition that would have tried to divide them.

We'll have to wait and see, but the last year of Trump's first term would be the best time to stage his victories if he plans to run for re-election.

Trump's playing rope-a-dope alright:

despite his betrayal of every populist promise he made during the election.

the neo-conz opposed Trump for awhile because they were (a) personally invested in Mrs. Clinton and (b) uncertain of his participation in the Greater Israel Project. As far as the latter goes, (((they))) now have no worries.

Q wants us to imagine a clever, wonderful plan that will bring down a vast, secret cabal, without most of us ever knowing about most of the evil they dispose of. Q is definitely a disinformation/psyop campaign. It's aimed at dismaying Trump's enemies, and puffing smoke up his supporters' skirts.

It does make sense to back-end load everything. Timing everything to happen in 2020 doesn't leave much time to deal with the unforeseen, but a Big, Beautiful Wall and a few high profile perp walks from the previous administration will be plenty to ensure re-election. He still has time to get that much done.

Q drop: 2786 18 Feb 2019 - 11:42:29 AM
[Title:] Confirmed: There Was an Illegal Coup Attempt on the President of the United States
https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1097488256848007173
The President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, AGREED that an illegal coup was attempted against him.
Stop and understand the GRAVITY of acknowledgment.
Do you believe nothing will happen?
Do you believe no one will be prosecuted?
POTUS making statements for no reason?
How do you introduce the TRUTH to those still asleep?
DECLAS coming?
The message must be direct (bypass the non reporting of the TRUTH (facts) by FAKE 'spin the narrative' NEWS).

@29 "The local vetos don't really worry me as much,"

See? PROOF you're a shill -- this is just stupidity without research! (Well, I guess stupid can't really DO research... but never mind... No, really, never mind and go the hell away!)

There IS NO VETO from the locals. There is consult. The ACoE ALREADY consults with locals, and then does whateverthehell they want or need to do anyway! Red Castle Green Castle! Go away!

@55 " Trump launches global butt-piracy campaign."

Or, wishful thinking here, MAYBE it can be a feint towards: if your people in their countries outlaw homosexuality, then YOUR PEOPLE cannot come to our Western countries. And if you're here and come FROM such a people, then bye bye?

Nice-enough thought.

This could indeed be a back-door mohammedan ban, phrased in a way that the Left can't easily contest. I don't think it's going to work that way, because it would bite Saudi Arabia, but wait until we see how it actually turns out.

You quoted my words out of context. I said that this bill does not provide money for a serious wall, so whether or not there is a local veto is irrelevant to me. I did not affirm that there is one. I don't care.

If you need further clarification, you can find me down by River Shill gorging on black pills in front of a raging fire with my fellow concern trolls.

@87 Ok, let's assume they just do whatever they want after the consultation time expires. “Such consultations shall continue until September 30, 2019 (or until agreement is reached, if earlier) and may be extended beyond that date by agreement of the parties, and no funds made available in this Act shall be used for such construction while consultations are continuing.”

This tiny tiny part of the wall can be held up until then even assuming your best case scenario of being able to unilaterally build it afterwards.

It's stupid to sign a bill that restricts you from building an actual wall in actual places that you want to build it and then declaring a national emergency and doing it anyway. He could have just not signed it and built the wall. Just building it has been an option open to him for his entire presidency and the biggest legal defence the left has against it is the bill that he just signed.

I think Trump is trying to stay alive, for one, and not bring the country into full scale Civil War. That's what keeps getting hammered by Q: social chaos, and assassination attempts. We don't know what he's going through to make things happen, one way or another.

Having said that: why aren't governors starting to build walls? Why is the fire concentrated on one man? Why aren't sheriffs going all in on reporting criminals to ICE? Travis County, Texas sheriff reported criminals to ICE. That's why the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce got together to insert a LatinaX activist sheriff. Crime, of course, is going through the roof. People with children are abandoning the city. That shows what one sheriff can effect: one sheriff kept one city in a law-abiding bubble of safety.

There are four governors on the border. There are 8 senators representing the border. There are X sheriffs on counties on the border. There are how many landowners on the border with no ability to build a solid fence? I'm serious. They can't rent a big machine and stack up dirt? They can't harden it with cheap third world armaments like any functionally retarded African warlord? Real question: I don't know how expensive any of this is.


We got the land across the continent despite the FedGov. We got title to the land despite FedGov. We got our prosperity and innovative corporations mostly despite FedGov. We forced their hand, state by state, on everything important. So, is border safety not important? Or are we paralyzed with amnesia about how we did this before?

Texas apparently is fixing to do just that. California and New Mexico aren't, because they don't want to keep out their fellow invaders. Not sure where Arizona stands, but I'm guessing it's closer to CA and NM than Texas.

Half his family is Jewish. Half his cabinet is Jewish. Half his rhetoric is Jewish.

Candidate Trump was concerned about white Americans and President Trump is much less so.

@InformationMerchant
Cary Katz’ blog (CR) is not to be trusted. Remember when everyone was getting worked up about poison pills in the Obamacare repeal that never happened? That BS was pushed through all his little CR toadie mouthpieces (only Steyn refused and was sacked) because he was annoyed not to get his subprime student loan shekels back. Now we have the same “poison pill” story from the same shills and it’s falling apart the same way.

You’ve helped me identify exactly who it is that is crying out in pain as they strike us with these poison pill lies, but I haven’t yet identified what in the bill he was actually upset about.

@ 94. Ariadne Umbrella
I was working down to comment land when I saw this. My comment was going be something like 'when the time comes I'm cleaning my personal weapons everyday after fighting in Civil War 2.0, I will believe Trump failed.
But, after reading that post @94, another thought occurred. What if the Military is helping along all this crap because they have determined the only way to save something of the USA is civil war 2.0? What if they need all this mixed message stuff to have the excuse to do military coup 1.0 and have the American people, or enough of them at least, to be OK with it. I don't know. So many scenarios that your head starts to spin. Nothing now would surprise me.

“right up until the moment she's swinging by a rope.”

IF the Q-Qanon thing is really, REALLY real—1 can hope; 1 can pray — then “the Plan” is still establishing an indelible association in The Public Mind of Dems with (arguably treasonous) Partizan-f**kery. The hammer THEN follows with public exposure of internationalist pedo-f**kery. What else has Q been saying? If Q = true, then Pedo exposure is coming.

Thus, Hillary “swinging by a rope” will be generally perceived as much too kind, by far. Firing squads (3 live shells in the heart) are SLIGHTLY less kind. I vote for televised firing squads in Cuba (Guantanamo)

Too bad that selling out to China, the biggest-littlest democracy, and ?the Turkish Mafia? will simply slide....

I'm totally down with that if that's not a typo.

It's been said elsewhere that the pattern of indictments of various Trump associates is all wrong for an eventual indictment of Trump himself based on their testimony - the indictments should have supported that narrative, and established the smaller fish as co-conspirators.

Instead, the indictments have been for activities unrelated to the Trump campaign, and have established most of the potential witness as convicted perjurers. By this analysis, Mueller is his own worst enemy; every battle he wins moves him a step closer to losing the war.
