Roger Stone, a victim of politicized prosecution

By Jim C.

Your articles on Roger Stone have been very well reasoned, rational and detailed.

I’d like to believe what you say is true. I think what you say will happen should happen, that Stone should be exonerated, but I’m afraid it won’t happen.

There’s a vast difference between what should be, and what really is.

Whether or not the CP FISA wiretap is legal is irrelevant, because it won’t be found illegal. Why?

Because the real test of jurisprudence in America is political power and fear and money. You write as if truth and justice will save the day, when realistically they haven’t had a lot to do in US courts for a very long time.

Why isn’t Robert Mueller or some other special prosecutor going after Hillary Clinton instead of completely ignoring her, as if she had complete immunity no matter what?

Why is Trump accused of obstructing justice for firing Comey, when under Obama there was a huge uproar for someone to do just that – supposed loss of confidence, agents resigning, etc.?

In some ways, Trump has been his own worst enemy – in the way that he expresses himself, but no matter how it comes out, it doesn’t mean that what he says is automatically wrong.

It does seem like Mueller is looking for a “jailhouse snitch”, as if he were some county DA, arresting low-level figures, terrifying them into cooperation against higher ones, and working his way toward the real target.

That can be easily seen as the real reason for the incredibly unnecessary SWAT team arrest of Roger Stone. It creates the image of an evil drug lord or crime boss in the public eye, while also dazing the one arrested with shock and awe, terrorizing them into cooperation from the very start.

The SWAT team arrest had nothing to do with police safety, and everything to do with public relations spin.

However, judging by past reports, it seems that’s exactly the wrong way to treat Stone. Probably the more investigators try to intimidate and threaten him, the more angry he gets, and more determined to not give them what they want.

My favorite from Sun Tzu’s Art of War is:

“The battle is won before it is fought.”

But IDK why political parties in the SAME COUNTRY would be AT WAR post election — seemingly endlessly — when far more dangerous enemies abound in the world arena.

In that case it’s true that we are on our own worst enemy here in the US! And POTUS Cheifly among us.

Trump’s way of expressing himself DID lessen his popularity and obscure his policies. (We’ve seen for ourselves how well that’s done on FR, btw. In fact, I’m sure that’s why Frank didn’t clamp Scott Johnson up sooner — for blind love of POTUS.)

Now, the Stones are being thrown.

Why don’t you ask yourself what the the demoncrat party platform is and why are they so against the American people?

They Great Awakening is underway and it is Global. The systematic take down of NXIVM and its global connections is the tip of the iceburg and a major sign to the deepstate that their time is running out.

Kp your eye on the central banks and the turmoil in other nations. It is here and nothing is going to stop it.

There is no blind love of President Trump lady. You people never thought your evil witch would lose. She did and is under Grand Jury investigation in Arkansas. She is the epitome of evil and thankfully Divine Providence has graced us with the strong leadership to take her and her evil globalist ilk down.

It is normal to be anxious about President Trump’s decision to hold back the evidence revealing Obama & Clinton’s illegal attempt, to steal the 2016 Presidential election.

Trump & Sun Tzu – The Art of War

Trump’s strategic mindset is most influenced by Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese master of strategy, who wrote one of Trump’s favorite books, The Art of War.

One of Tzu’s key rules is that wise Generals do not engage the enemy in battle, until they know that they have won the war.

Remember, Trump knows everything and can prove it. This includes SpyGate,ObamaGate, The Clinton Foundation, Uranium One, Benghazi, Iran Deal. EVERYTHING.

He has all the evidence to nail Obama, Clinton and their cronies to the wall and has armed his cannons for firing, when the timing is right.

BUT he isn’t ready to fire, just yet.

Trump has had to prepare the terrain first.

Remember, since his inauguration, Trump has appointed loyalists to the key agencies that protect the Republic. The DOJ, FBI, CIA, NSA, SCOTUS, Senate (judiciary appointments) and other agencies are all led by Trump appointees.

The military establishment is also 100% behind Trump.

Trump knows that he is close to victory, but has not yet won the war. Why?

Robert Mueller’s SC and FakeNews, the last serious enemy holdouts, have yet to be defeated.

Trump’s Assault on The Republic’s Enemies

Have no fear. The enemies are reeling. Since November 8, 2016 their mission has always been simple – to protect the Clintons, Obama and all their cronies. They have been subjected to withering fire for two years, sustaining massive damage. Consider what we know:

• Comey’s entire FBI team has been wiped out. Ditto, Lynch’s DOJ rats.
• Obama’s natsec crew (Brennan, Clapper, Comey etc) has been stripped of security clearances and know they are legally exposed.
• The Clintons have been under intense DOJ/OIG investigation (Clinton Foundation, Uranium One).
• Obama has been under intense DOJ/OIG investigation (SpyGate – the election crime, ObamaGate (spying)).
• The leak network of FakeNews reporters, working with Obama & Clinton, has likely been uncovered.
• The UK & Australian governments are muzzled.
• Democrats in Congress. Yes, they have won the House. But once the role of so many of their most powerful members is revealed, it’s likely that their victory will be a pyrrhic one.
And more. You get the picture. They may whine on twitter and play games, but Trump has most of the Republic’s enemies muzzled, or defeated.

However, Mueller and FakeNews remain. They are very weak now, but have one last weapon left.

Defeating Mueller & FakeNews: Trump’s Strategy

Obama & Clinton destroyed modern journalism, by weaponizing it.

During the 2016 election, 65 ‘journalists’ were exposed as covert Clinton partisans, working with her campaign as a de facto Department of Propaganda.

The OIG report released in 2018 indicated that reporters were working with corrupt FBI agents, to do the same thing.

It has been strongly suggested that there is a cadre of propagandists masquerading as reporters, who have been secretly paid to do Obama & Clinton’s dirty work.

FakeNews’ weapon has always been to use classified information and leaks, to damage the opponents of Obama & Clinton. Their ability to influence millions of brainwashed citizens, while reducing 24/7, is a potent weapon.

Mueller & FakeNews still have the ability to create and shape narratives, working together.

For example, right now Mueller is trying to frame the four individuals who will be revealed as targets of illegal FISAs – Manafort, Flynn, Papadopoulos and Page – as suspicious liars. This is for FakeNews to activate later.

Mueller is also (desperately) trying to create a false narrative that the Russians hacked the DNC and then leaked it to WikiLeaks, then waited for the green light by the Trump campaign to release them. FakeNews is pushing this lie, 24/7.

Trump knows exactly what Mueller & FakeNews are doing. What else does he know?

They need fresh meat, in the form of information, to keep up their assault on Trump.

In some ways, Trump has been his own worst enemy – in the way that he expresses himself,

Again you will be found to be incorrect.

Either way. But I suspect that — at that time — 2015-2016, the Shadow Demons thought they had it in the bag (or in The Hag)

On Oct. 9, 2016, presidential Candidate Trump declared in debate that he would appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary’s involvement in corruption. She appeared dumbfounded for a minute — not a difficult thing for her to pull off. He also told her more than once that she would “be in jail” at some point in the future. Lots of people (then) dismissed his claims as those of an insane madman…blustering and blabbering on about shit that he had no clue about.

Fast forward… Today there are STILL lots of people who think POTUS is a chump buffoon. Tsk, tsk.

But there is a growing number who are seeing the proverbial writing on the wall. All of this stuff is a ‘project’ to condition the population for what’s coming.

The denial and retardation of a significant portion of my ‘fellow Americans’ is stupendous. Maybe they’ve completely lost the ability to reason. They don’t realize the truth contained in Sun Tzu’s Art of War.

“All warfare is based on deception.

Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

These maxims have not ‘expired’.

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”
“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

Until acted upon, those maxims are also result in Raniere-like double-speak that has no meaning. For example, unless you actually use strength, the appearance of weakness does not automatically mean strength exists.

it may be way better then you know , think about it, Comey was out of position when he was fired, knowing this, they knew there would come a clean up team to hide the dirt, would a sting operation be a great move ? caught some extra rats ? all coms were being monitored as FISA works both ways .

I think you are going to be wrong about this. Wait for the FISA declass

Hope I am wrong about this. I wasn’t really giving a legal opinion, just making a cynical observation about the state of a so-called criminal “justice” system where it seems justice is the last of anyone’s concerns, if it even shows up in court at all. Truth and justice are forever relegated to the backseat while power and money are up front doing the driving.

I get your cynicism, however if you really pay attention and look at what is not being reported I think you are going to be in for a pleasant surprise. These dirty bastards are not going down without a struggle so obviously resistance can seem like the white hats are not winning but oh we are. The leftist media is the real enemy and power of what is left of the deep state. If they would at the very least report things fairly than things would be more obvious.
