Roger Stone guilty on all counts

The verdict is in:
Republican operative Roger Stone was found guilty Friday of all seven counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements.

Prosecutors portrayed Stone, 67, as a serial liar who tried to bully witnesses into not cooperating with authorities. They charged Stone, a confidant of President Donald Trump, with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering in a case that was an offshoot of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Stone is the sixth Trump aide or adviser to be convicted of charges brought as part of Mueller's probe.
President Trump had better start handing out presidential pardons soon or no one will stand by him.

Indictments would be better than pardons. He'll never be able to keep up with all the process crimes the deep state levies against his people, and he'd be stupid to try. Or lynch a few judges and the rest will fall into line.

Either way, the guy's great but I'm not going to put more effort into defending someone than they put into themselves.

Trump just tweeted "So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?...."

The tweet is really bad. Instead of defending the obvious bullshit against his supporters and sticking up for them, Trump talks about crooked democrats. That's hardly news for anyone. Liberals don't care and right wingers don't do anything about it.

28 years of judges. 28 years of prosecutors. 28 years of military brass. 28 years of state legislators and executives. If he had launched with Mattis, McMaster, Kelly, Sessions, he would have been sunk playing the game. The game is you attack with government, I attack with government, after 28 years stacking the deck. If we, generic we, had played the game, it would already be over. What is needed is rage. An end of the domestication. A populace which no longer locks the door to their torches and pitchforks. Snapped out of the spell of the spectator. A populace that is mostly rhetorical rather than dialectic. The language of “hate is bad” was never about hate, it was about locking up rage. In the hot and cold, it was about locking up the hot and leaving only the lukewarm or the cold. What happens to Stone is not about Stone. What happens to Trump is not about what happens to Trump. It is about what happens to us. Trump does not stand, and we do not stand, there is correlation. At this point, it is not about deserve, evil attacks good, there is no deserve. It is about separation, the realization that you are not a part of that evil, and that that evil has no place among you. And the rage, at evil trying to force its way anyway as if you are. The separation. Rage is not itself a call to action, but it is an end to the prohibition against action, it allows the end of the cucking. The rage lights the torches, it does not make them march. And when enough are lit, that is when a decision is made. Trump army is not about Trump.

Blogger Oswald November 15, 2019 3:47 PM  

I don't think any past president has issued pardons of this kind in his first term. Many people say Ford lost to Carter, because he pardoned Nixon in his first term. Seems to me, those people wanting pardons should be patient. They should have already understood, before getting involved, that pardons of this type (Where their actions or positions are so directly connected to the pardoning power) come at the end of the second term generally. This is the way, I see it.

If Trump were to pardon Stone now, his opponents would proclaim it as irrefutable evidence of Trump's guilt by association and try to use it to defeat him in 2020. I'm sure all of his advisors are telling him that it would ensure his defeat. Yet, I think Trump's instincts are telling him to pardon Stone. We will see what happens.

DACA *should* be simple if could pierce the MSM narrative, which even Fox regurgitated. Question is "What about their *parents*?

DACA is nothing more than post-birth anchor babies.

Blogger Hammerli 280 November 15, 2019 4:08 PM  

@26: I agree. Stone cannot hope to see a pardon until mid-November 2020. But he should be able to string things out with appeals until then.

As frustrating as the delays are, I'm convinced that Trump is playing a waiting game. If he were to arrest a dozen Dems today, the news would be wiped off the front page by Thanksgiving...then Christmas...then New Year.

No. Trump will hold his fire as long as he can. Expect nothing until January at the earliest, more likely later. I think he will want to let the impeachment effort founder, then mount the counterstroke.

And is interesting. Looks like Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch have obtained information on the scope of illegal Dem surveillance.

"have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States"

Article 2, Section 2, Clause 1 is where the difference in interpretation comes in. A question that comes up as to, what if a state makes a law just the same as US law. If they are charged by the federal and the state under the different laws, is that twice for the same crime? If there is a pardon by the federal, how does that relate to state prosecution? Which in turn brings into play the question as to which trumps, state of federal law (and decided applicability, such as a pardon does)? Bringing up the point that a law based in the federal is delegated to the federal (see 10th Amendment for comparison), which by definition is not reserved to the states or to the people. Which then has to pass the test of relation to reality. A reality whereby The Prince is relevant. It's all paper. One decade you can't drink (so to speak), as a Constitutional "right," and the rest of the decades you can if you don't live in certain counties/political subdivisions. It's an argument about paper with a Swamp that doesn't care.

I was on a conference call with the LaRouche PAC last week. They had whistle blower William Binney on. He was saying this would happen because the FBI hid evidence it received disproving the claim that any info Roger Stone received during the 2016 election was from Russia. They compared the download speeds of the info Stone had received to some controls. The conclusion was the download speeds were far too fast to come from anywhere but the east coast of the US.

Stone is symbolic for Democrats because he is the Nixon Days. They would love to stitch up the Republicans like they did to Nixon and run the deep state, rig the elections, control the opposition with their candidates like they have since those days. Roger Stone has to be pardoned. The difference for Roger Stone in today's world is that he's an outsider to the power players so the Dem deep staters are going after him, they want the optics of Trump pardoning him so they can make him look bad in the press. Stone was too vulnerable as a lone wolf political operative. On the Right a great example of continuing to fend off the Washington Cabal using you as a sacrificial lamb is Erik Prince's working model. They can't touch him. And they rightly fear him.

@76 The Lab Manager:

It's much better than that. At the beginning of his administration, he and the Republican Congress used a little used law to repeal huge swathes of them. Not just the ones enacted in the ending days of the Obama administration, but due to a little obeyed requirement for the regulators to officially inform Congress about new ones, the clock hadn't started ticking on a huge set of old ones.

And I'm now getting a kick when I read swamp headlines "X agency is no longer using *Science!!!* to make regulations." While most modern economies are enjoying a sugar high of the central bankers running the printing presses, getting Obama's boot off the neck of US industry has done a great deal of good.

As I said, Gen. Flynn will walk without apparent direct intervention by Trump. It's better that way. His newer lawyers are not an accident, and they are very, very good.

As for Stone, I think Vlad Z is correct about Stone, but will have to double check. First, he was set up with a DC venue, or a kangaroo court. Yet Stone was a Nixon operative, and Nixon was Deep State. Look into "Operation Paperclip," which Nixon was a major player. Stone will likely get off due to the nature of his trial, but this trial will out some players on the Lefts DS side, and perhaps even some fake Right. Not suggesting Stone is fake Right, but this is all going to get much deeper looks by the autists.

Yes, on point, thanks. But those who gloss over the facts, constantly, have an agenda, and it's not Right.

I'm not a lawyer, but I know some things about juries. You have to act a little dumb, and ONLY make decisions on the evidence admitted by a judge. So you are at the mercy of the judge's integrity or corruption. I'm sure this is why there are appeals and panels of judges in higher level appeals.

@83 tuberman:

"Nixon was Deep State. Look into "Operation Paperclip," which Nixon was a major player."

The Official Story has Nixon, formerly a practicing white shoe lawyer before becoming a naval officer, doing contract work pertaining to winding down the war effort starting January 1945 and lasting till March of the next year. Before that he was an administrative officer in California, and before that he did that sort of thing on tiny islands in the Pacific, don't know when he went back to the US. As the same time he was doing contracts work, he was drafted to beat a pinko Democratic Congressman.

If he was really a "secret agent" during this period, he was a lot more interesting than I realized.

Right! If Q is even half right, GE is battling baby sacrificing Moloch worshippers peppered throughout the administrative state. I don't expect this to be played at face value.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd November 16, 2019 10:04 AM  

@83 tuberman, you may well be right about Flynn and Stone. That doesn't change the fact that Trump is quietly standing up for his military. Proud Boys? Never. Trump knows who he's going to have to rely on, and it's not the Brown Shirts or the Nationalist mobs. Trump sees a future in which he needs the military standing by him.

Trump is quietly standing by his military. The important stuff Trump does quietly. Shutting down DACA, for example.

I remember seeing some youtube video of a guy claiming insider information, I think he was on Infowars, back in September 2016? He basically claimed there was a coup attempt by some Executive Branch agencies, and then a counter coup by the Military branches, military intelligence agencies.

It's as good an explanation as any for "normies" to make sense of the US government today.

Blogger R Devere November 16, 2019 10:27 AM  

Pardon for Roger Stone?

He's hardly the innocent "Christian soldier" laboring on behalf of Trump.

Everyone here seems to have forgotten or overlooks or doesn't know, that Stone (by his own choice) had his fingers in the NEXIVM pie, a rather nasty and large, international sex and child trafficking endeavor, tied in with Epstein!

So, if Trump now pardons him, the MSM can "all of a sudden", go there and tie Trump to Epstein, regardless of the fakery involved!

Here's something to consider about Nixon. I don't think Nixon was a particularly bad guy. I was a 'blue-collar democrat" during his time in office, but with reservations, but I thought something was off about his being forced from office. Much ado about very little, so why did R's go to him and recommend he resign? I didn't like him then, but thought this was bad for the country.

Lately, there has been speculation that what was being sought in the Watergate burglary was far more than DNC plans. It was proof of Pedo activity by some major players. Now, I don't think Nixon was a perv, so he could have used that info for blackmail power, and this would have reached beyond DNC players to Pedos on the RNC side. So both sides had to remove him.

Just speculation, but it 's likely that something in the burglary was far more important than what was reported. And, given what we understand today...?

Blogger Stilicho November 16, 2019 10:35 AM  

@boomer55: I happen to know a lot about juries and what you said only holds true for white jurors who follow the law. Diverse jurors decide cases based on tribal loyalty. The judge does have broad discretion in what evidence he allows jurors to see, so he can (and does) put his finger on the scales of justice. Some judges press down harder than others.

Blogger ThatWouldBeTelling November 16, 2019 10:46 AM  

@91 tuberman, OK, but what about your claim of Nixon's involvement in Operation Paperclip, spiriting German STEM men from the ruins of Nazi Germany to work in the US, most notably Wernher von Braun and his V2 team?

As for the real reason behind the Watergate break-in, I thought the most accepted revisionist theory was that John Dean engineered it because of concern the Democrats had kompromat on his soon to be wife, and that his testimony contradicting Nixon's narrative was key in taking down the latter. But I'd be willing to believe something more sinister.

Blogger CF Neal November 16, 2019 10:48 AM  

Yes, Nixon was a flawed man, as are we all.

BUT ...

He made many enemies by pursuing Alger Hiss & other communist agents. I've been under the impression that was what the amateurish efforts of the ad hoc off-books burglary team were looking for.
And now that I'm more informed as to the globalist's methods, this very likely would have included such PEDO &c. evidence.

God save the Republic!

@91 Here's something to consider about Nixon...

Here is something more to consider about Nixon. After he finished law school in California, he went to the east coast and tried to get into one or another of the high status law firms. He got no job and believed he was unfairly excluded because he wasn't part of the eastern elite. The Harvard Establishment, to put it that way.

Whether or not he was in the Deep State, he never considered himself part of the in crowd. Rather the people at the top were an enemy that he was overcoming. As President, he tended to view the rest of Washington as an enemy. His most ruthless efforts were directed against what we are now calling the Deep State, which for Nixon would be more appropriately called the Washington Establishment. Not the rank and file, but the leadership.

Like Trump and like Andrew Jackson, he was an outsider in the capital, or viewed himself as such.

Because of how Obama was given a virtual free pass to corrupt multiple levels of government and receive limited to zero scrutiny by the media, there is no other conclusion to reach than the judiciary has reached banana republic status

Blogger ThatWouldBeTelling November 16, 2019 11:13 AM  

One other interpretation I recently came across about the final rise and fall of Nixon is that as a Quaker he was "hired" to get us out of the Vietnam War, and after that was dispensable. As the treatment of Goldwater in 1964 showed, by that time Republicans were automatically criminals, Snopes recently confirmed for us in their nitpicking way that the Democrats tried to impeach every *elected* Republican starting with Nixon (they pointed out Gerald Ford didn't get this treatment, I note previously he was the House Minority Leader for 9 terms, that is, a swamp creature).

And @96 Johnny is correct, he was always an outsider, and loathed by all his betters for his *effective* anti-Communism. The same was to a degree true for Reagan, the Bushes are another matter.

Blogger ThatWouldBeTelling November 16, 2019 11:14 AM  

@97 Lovekraft, if I remember correctly, convicting Republicans for being Republicans with D.C. or Alexandria, Virginia juries has long been the MO of the Deep State, preceding Obama.

"As for the real reason behind the Watergate break-in, I thought the most accepted revisionist theory was that John Dean engineered it because of concern the Democrats had kompromat on his soon to be wife, and that his testimony contradicting Nixon's narrative was key in taking down the latter."

All these theories, including the Dean one, fit into the pasts view of reality. You know, before we knew about all the trafficking, Epstein, the tunnels under the Playboy mansion, and tons of Pedo blackmail.

If you desire to believe in the 1970's version of reality, be my guest. I heard about paperclip with Nixon's involvement months ago, and didn't save the sources, not likely to be easily available. So, perhaps I'm wrong, but I'm not. Believe as you like.

Stone expended all of his life savings on this case.

Blogger ThatWouldBeTelling November 16, 2019 12:09 PM  

@101 Rajadog20, Trump's a billionaire.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd November 16, 2019 12:18 PM  

@102 Karhu, Flynn and Stone have both gone broke, right? The process is the punishment. Perhaps Trump will quietly make them financially whole later, but he hasn't yet.

Unless tuberman is right about Flynn walking without a pardon, he's still a felon, regardless of financial status, unless Trump pardons him. I think tuberman could be too optimistic about justice being done, because who-whom, but the Trump administration has had a lot of firsts: this could be another.

Blogger tuberman November 16, 2019 12:51 PM  

Sidney Powell is Gen. Flynn's current attorney, and much better for his case then his former attorneys, which used up all of his money. How did this happen? Please tell me your Narrative approved ideas.

I think Trump will do something:

Blogger tuberman November 16, 2019 1:50 PM  

The position of Corrupt Judge Amy Berman Jackson's court is already being pulled apart. She did not allow evidence that would have contradicted the whole premise for Stone's trial.Gateway Pundit.

This is how they operate of course, just like the prosecutors withholding exculpatory evidence from Gen. Flynn's trial, but the Judge not allowing it this time.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd November 16, 2019 2:31 PM  

Crew, Trump is doing a lot, and a lot of it is what we want.

Blogger Silly but True November 16, 2019 5:29 PM  

Flynn’s former counsel is of course to blame: they were Flynn Group’s counsel which prepared Flynn’s FARA at fault in Kian/Alptein’s Turkey FARA case, they remained Flynn’s counsel while they knew they had conflict when FARA was issue, they served as witnesses for prosecution in Alptekin case.

They were conflicted and consequently pushed idea that guilty plea to felony he didn’t commit but no jail time was in best interests of their client.

Like all long relationships, Flynn believed them until it was clear they were also part of railroad job.

Blogger Crew November 16, 2019 6:15 PM  

I think the legal situations with Stone and Flynn have to play out to their conclusions (including appeals) before Trump can step in and rectify any miscarriage of justice.

Blogger Macs November 16, 2019 7:14 PM  

That's exactly why the Dems and RHINOs are going to string-out the "impeachment" process as long as they can: the best defense is good offense.
