The Orange Snipe Hunt

Back when I was a Boy Scout, I experienced something called a Snipe Hunt. It was a hunt for a nonexistent beast – a way to divert and occupy boys otherwise bored. So long as the boys believed in the reality of the Snipe – and the possibility of a glorious kill – they were happy.

And kept busy.

It was harmless fun.

The Orange One looks increasingly like a real snipe. He is certainly being hunted for real.

It’s his “crimes” which appear to be nonexistent.

And that is not a harmless diversion.

What follows is not a defense, per se, of the Orange One, his person or his policies. It’s an expression of disgust with what appears to be a kind of slow-motion putsch to remove Trump from office by whatever means necessary, by those who do not like him personally and disapprove of his politics and cannot abide that he was duly elected.

It must not be allowed to stand!

There is ominous-sounding by very hazy talk of “collusion” with “the Russians.” But what is meant by this, exactly?

And what has been proved?

It’s been said that “Russians” – which Russians is not altogether clear – confected anti-Hillary “content” (as anything online is called) during the election and placed this content  – using fake identities – on social media sites such as the data-mining operation, Facebook.

Let’s assume for discussion’s sake that this is true.

So?

Unless Mueller can prove that Trump (or someone acting on his behalf, with Trump’s knowledge) authorized/paid foreign nationals to act on Trump’s behalf, where is the crime?

Maybe “the Russians” like Trump.

So what if they do?

They are free to like him, last time I checked. And even to post “content” online in support of him, too. Regardless, it is not a crime chargeable to Trump if they do so – unless it can be proved they did so because Trump or his proxies paid/urged them to do so.

Mueller has so far been unable to come up with any proof of such “collusion” with “the Russians.” The Snipe hunt has been going on for a year-and-a-half.

Where’s the beef?

Apparently, there isn’t any. Not even a really small patty. Just buns and mayo – and maybe not even that.

And so, instead, he deploys the equivalent of “officer safety” – the catch-all used to justify summary execution in the street: The charge – not yet formally, but seems to be clearly coming – of “obstruction.” That is to say, of not cooperating with sufficient obsequious enthusiasm in his own persecution. If Trump refuses, for instance, to endure being questioned by this Mueller character, that becomes the crime.

Even if Mueller can’t prove a got-damned thing as regards the original crime he was supposedly investigating. Obstruction becomes the ersatz crime. The sentence – and jail – are however very real and very much the same.

This is what they did to Martha Stewart. It annoyed the Feds that they could not get her on the charges asserted. So they got her on “obstruction.”

Point being, they were determined to get her.

As it increasingly appears to be the case with regard to Trump.

One greasy assertion after the next, but no crime proved or even evidence of criminality adduced.

This is playing with fire.

The man was duly elected. Ballot boxes were not “hacked.” No one is even claiming this. The election results are what they are, like them or not.

Mueller does not like them.

Hillary’s supporters do not like them. Rather than accept them, they are determined to negate them.

To remove from office a president whom they personally do not like and whose politics they disagree with, using any pretext and all the power at their disposal.

This will not end well, if it does not end soon.

  1. Trump can’t be controlled 100% of the time and isn’t a deep state member. That’s why they’re so eager to remove him. However, his ignorance and naïveté is letting these creeps take advantage of him.

    It is disappointing he’s not the revolutionary we saw during the campaign, but I can’t say I’m surprised it turned out this way.

    • Yep, Handler. He’s not deep state….just as Hitler wasn’t. That doesn’t really matter though- it’s like electing someone who belongs to La Raza, and then being happy because they’re not in the Mafia. It’s one brand of tyranny vs. another; one band of thieves vs. another…

      “Support La Raza because the Mafia doesn’t like them!” 😉

      I said when Trump was campaigning, when I saw the people whom he was surrounding himself with, “Either he is stupid, or the things he is saying in his campaign speeches are insincere, and he’s just saying them because he knows that that’s what those who don’t support Hitlery want to hear”.

      I was right…more than I knew. He’s stupid, AND insincere.

      Picking an establishment Repugnantcan such as Pense was the real tip-off. If I were Trump, I would have been sure to pick someone whom the establishment hated even more they hate me, -if for nothing else, as insurance against getting knocked off or impeached.

      Picking Pense as VP was either utter stupidity, or Trumps true colors coming through. Or a combination of both. If I were running, I’d pick Ron Paul!

      I never saw Trump as a revolutionary. He’s a man who has dealed with the system all of his life, and has had no qualms about it. Like most such people- even those with only a few million, such as ones I’ve known/do know, their attitude is “It’s just a cost of doing business”. Pay to play. Conform to whatever regs you must, and use whatever other regs you can [like bankruptcy] to your advantage. Grease what palms you have to. They don’t care about liberty or fairness or who gets screwed…it’s just about the bottom line and getting whatever advantage they can (Which sadly is the way MOST people operate these days- from welfare recipients, on up ).

      Of the rich people I’ve known, virtually every one of them has gone bankrupt at least once. They didn’t go broke, or lose anything…their creditors were the only ones who lost anything- and they all look at it as “part of the game” (Including the creditors- who ultimately more than make up for any losses on the backs of those who pay the full amount).

      Such people can never be revolutionaries, because they are moral relativists, who ultimately have no absolutes- and certainly not when it comes to the basis of all liberty: Property rights. Property rights are vague, not absolute and not essential to people who deal in bankruptcies and eminent domain and who will gladly advocate and use “zoning and planning” to their advantage and to their competitor’s detriment [Rather than advocate that there be no such laws governing what one can do with his own property].

      They’d sooner use their money to get a law changed to benefit them at the cost of their neighbor, than to use their money to get restrictive laws abolished…..

      Such are not revolutionaries…they are players. And they are used to being manipulated by the system-…pay to play….hire enough attorneys and lobbyists to change a law to allow them to do what they should just be able to do naturally; …negotiate with the overlords- “You can build your hotel here, BUT it has to be yay high instead of…”….

      Anyone who can spend their life happily operating within the confines of such a system, and thrive and prosper and use that system to their advantage with no qualms….is about as far from a revolutionary as one can get.

      His one saving grace was that he was better than Hitlery. Now it appears that he is almost the same as Hitlery.

  2. The “elephant in the room” is the dual-nationality Israelis who run our foreign and domestic policy.
    You see, the USA s Israel’s b!tch…

    The United States government gets its “marching orders” from Israel. THAT is a major problem, with dual-nationality Israelis running our government and formulating both our foreign and domestic policy.

    “Cleaning the swamp” should involve getting rid of ALL dual-nationality types. There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for anyone having “dual loyalties” in MY country.

    In addition, Israel holds a “Damocles sword” over the rest of the world with its “undocumented nukes”…
    If a nuclear device is “lit off” in an American or European city, it will have Israel’s fingerprints all over it. Israel is desperate to keep the American money spigot running, as well as sabotaging the Palestinian “peace process” that the world wants it to take seriously.

    In fact, if a nuclear device is “lit off” anywhere in the world, it will have come from Israel’s secret nuclear “stockpile”.

    The “power outage” in Atlanta was a convenient excuse for Israel to perform a logistical “sleight of hand”, as an Israeli plane was allowed to land and take off during the “power outage” without receiving customs clearance or inspection. Just maybe another one of Israel’s nukes was just being pre-positioned, getting ready for “the big one”. As most Americans are tired of all of the foreign wars being fought for Israel’s benefit, another “incident” on American soil would be enough to galvanize the American public, once again, (just like WTC 9-11) to support another war for Israel’s benefit. Israel’s “samson option” is a real threat to “light one off” in a European or American city, if Israel’s interests are not taken seriously.

    Israel refuses to abide by IAEA guidelines concerning its nukes as they are already distributed around the world. Israel would not be able to produce all of them as most of them are not in Israel, proper. No delivery systems are needed as Israel’s nukes are already “in place”. Look for another “false flag” operation with the blame being put on Iran or Syria. You can bet that some Iranian or Syrian passports will be found in the rubble.

    Israel also threatens to detonate nuclear devices in several US cities. Talk about total INSANITY; the so-called “Samson Option” is it.

    As an aside, American “foreign aid” is prohibited from being given to any country that has not signed the “Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty” or refuses to abide by “International Atomic Energy Agency” (IAEA) guidelines regarding its nuclear devices. Guess what?? Israel does not abide by EITHER and still gets the majority of American “foreign aid”. This prohibition also applies to countries that do not register their “agents of a foreign government” with the U S State Department. Guess what?? Israel (again) with its “American Israel Political Action Committee” (AIPAC) still gets “foreign aid” in contravention of American law..

    There are forty or so congressmen, senators and thousands of high-level policy “wonks” infecting the U S government who hold “dual citizenship” with Israel. Such dual citizenship must be strictly prohibited. Those holding dual citizenship must be required to renounce said foreign citizenship. Refusal to do so should result in immediate deportation with loss of American citizenship. Present and former holders of dual citizenship should never be allowed to serve in any American governmental capacity.

    When Netanyahu addressed both houses of congress, it was sickening to see our politicians slobber all over themselves to PROVE that they were unconditional supporters of Israel…just who the hell do they work for? Certainly not for the interests of the American people and the United States…they should renounce their United States citizenship and be deported to Israel…

    • Pretty much an updated version of what Ben Franklin said about the Jews…. He wanted to keep them out of America. He knew what he was talking about. Now America is the garbage can for the Ashkenazi. or rather, a slot machine, that always pays off.

  3. What’s funny is that this whole Russians skewed the election thing hinges on a bunch of Russian trolls and thousands of dollars having a bigger effect in manipulating the american public than the whole of the mainstream media and internet giants combined.

    And a good hunk of the public believes it.

  4. Now The Orange Asshat has a real crime on his hands- i.e. the bombing of Syria, on what of course will prove to be false info. This will likely be used as the pinnacle of evidence against him, to declare that he is unfit for office- assuming his actions don’t cause WW3 to start first.

    So yet again, he does the very thing Hilary had been saying she would od; and once again, our politicians do the bidding of Israel instead of the American people whom they are supposed to be representing.

    This douche had an UNPRECEDENTED opportunity to do good and accomplish something which no other modern presidents have been privy to, by reason of the fact that he was elected by half of the nation whom normally are never represented in politics, and who realized that this election was their last opportunity to maintain any semblance to traditional America- but he BLEW IT!

    The snowflake liberals must be celebrating, because now, this country is officially theirs. Trump handed it to them.

    • Pretty much a no win situation: stay calm and stay out of Syria, and Trump is “colluding with the Russians to protect a brutal dictator.” Bomb the hell out of Syria and it goes as you suggest, presuming we all don’t die in a nuclear holocaust first.

      Hold onto your family and tell them you love them.

    • Nunz, why do you think Trump had any control over the Syria situation? The deep state wants war. Trump talked about pulling out, then coincidentally, a day later we get another “gas attack”, and now Trump is all for war. Like flipping a switch. Wouldn’t it be easy to threaten the life of a president’s family?

      But the war party always wins, no question there.

      As for the Russian interference bullshit, that is how they’re going to write history. That is what will be taught in the schools. That is what will be mentioned in the documentaries. They just keep saying it over and over again, and half the people run with it because that is what they want to and choose to believe.

      • BJ, If Trump had actually been sincere about the things he had pretended to support while he was campaigning, and had surrounded himself with likeminded people instead of warmonger Neocons and generals, he could have really neutralized the deep state, at least for the time being.

        Threats to his family would not have carried any weight, because had anything actually happened to them, it would have exposed the deep state on a mass level which would have effectively destroyed their power- as they can not control hundreds of millions of people who then realize that they are being controlled.

        Trump’s words are meaningless- one minute he says one thing; the next minute he says or does the opposite. His actions are his own. Just like with North Korea. There is a video on Youtube of interview of Trump which took place 20 years ago, with him saying “We must do something about North Korea”.

        He knows exactly what he is doing, and doesn’t need any prodding. And he is easily manipulated- not by threats, but by the narratives of his enemies- such as how they are using the “Russian collusion” narrative to keep Trump from making nice with the Russians, for fear that it might lend credence to their false charges.

        He’d rather start WW3 than endure the blow to his image that false accusations would bring. And maybe that is the true plan of the deep state, as I’ve long surmised- because there is no way out of the massive debt and dysfunctional unsustainable economy and culture which they have created- and a massive war would enable them to start over and still remain in charge, whereas just letting America die from within likely wouldn’t.

        Trump is dangerous, because he can be easily manipulated, and because he is a megalomaniac. And surely, someone of his stature who has played with politicians for decades, knows their tactics- as even you and I do- so if he were afraid of threats, he should not have taken the office- it’s not as if he’s some naive bumpkin who actually thinks that the president really calls all of the shots.

        Think of all the men who lost their families, fortunes and lives in the Revolutionary War……but now we’re supposed to tolerate men who destroy their own country and sovereign nations the world over, because they are threatened?

        • These are all good points Nunz. He has been part of that class for a long time, and knows the game. I believe the argument made regarding the people Trump surrounded himself with, was that he would not have been allowed to win if he chose outsiders.

          “Threats to his family would not have carried any weight, because had anything actually happened to them, it would have exposed the deep state on a mass level which would have effectively destroyed their power- as they can not control hundreds of millions of people who then realize that they are being controlled.”

          To play devil’s advocate, if you can convince millions of people that Russians “hacked” the election, that Assad gassed his own people, that more “sensible” gun control is needed, would it be so hard to convince these same people that a president’s family all died because Trump himself killed them, or that they all happened to kill themselves at the same time?

          Again, most of these people will choose to believe whatever the supposed narrative is, because that is what they want to believe. They choose to believe that Seth Rich was killed in a robbery. These people will happily accept whatever CNN tells them happened to a president’s family, or whatever the situation may be.

          I suppose if this did happen though, they would have to do something to the president too, because there would be no need to keep silent at that point.

          • Ah, you make some good points too, BJ.

            But I do think they did do all they could to try and keep Trump from winning- if for no other reason than that he is an outsider, and an unknown quantity, and possibly not as easily controlled as their own players (A fear of theirs which turned out to be unfounded! ) -but the fact is “they” do not have as much control over everything as some tend to think- if they did, they would not need all of these elaborate charades.

            I think too, that that is the only reason we even know of “them”. If they truly wanted to remain secret, they could- but the fact is, by putting out limited info, and making people think that they already have total control over everything, they actually gain more control than they actually have, because many people end up believing that “they” control everything that happens, and so essentially give up, and offer no resistance- but the election of t5he Donald is a prime example of how fragile their control is- which is why I say that Trump, with the backing of so many supporters, could truly have accomplished something, had his campaign promises been sincere, and had he not been just another statist Neocon, egomaniac and lunatic.

            • Nunz I was so sure that elections were rigged, and they kinda are, but him winning really surprised me. So you may be right on the fragility of their control. The whole system seems pretty fragile right now, to be honest. Maybe when we get a guy like Ron Paul elected we’ll get some real change…

              • The election definitely was rigged- like: Bussing in illegals in the big cities to vote multiple times in different precints for Hillary; and 376 votes in one ballot box in Detroit for Hillary, in a precinct that only had 75 registered voters….

                I guess they just got cocky, and under-estimated the true support Trump had.

                But it really doesn’t matter who gets in, as I’ve said many times- not even the great Ron Paul can save us, because our people are already corrupted.

                They gladly sign-up to fight in “their” wars; to staff “their” offices; to be cops and cage people for possessing the wrong plant. Jurors gladly convict anyone who doesn’t report and pay taxes on every financial transaction; they gladly pay a tax for the privilege of earning a living and creating wealth and supporting their own families…only to have those taxes given to those who spend their lives sitting on a couch and making illegitimate babies….

                They send their kids off the government schools where they are brainwashed, and learn to submit; and then pay good money to send them to some university where they learn every perversion, subversion, cultural Marxism and communism….

                And they demand “universal healthcare”, and the destruction of their own right to protect themselves from tyranny and crime…..etc. etc.

                The people who made it possible for Obozo to rule for two terms…would rebel if a good man who actually makes sense- like Ron Paul- somehow got in.

                No worries though, as in ’08, he only garned three percent of the votes among his own Republicans in the primary- so imagine how much lower that percentage would be in the general election?!

                Americans hate liberty…they love communism.

                Funny, I was watching a video last night by this Westerner who was living in China, and he said that people sometimes ask him how the government there can get away with banning the all internet content except for China’s own…and he said “They get away with it simply mosty people just don’t care”.

                Give ’em bread and circuses, and they won’t care about what’s important.

                • Morning, Nunz!

                  I’m depressed – and exasperated. Depressed about Trump being Bolton-ized (becoming a warmonger, after egging on by that moustachio’d psychopath John Bolton) and depressed by the relentless juggernaut aimed at Trump’s removal by any means necessary.

                  He will have to double down to remain in office. And I am betting that means more war.

                  • G’day Eric!

                    Meh….I don’t think The Donald needed to be Boltonized. He hand-picked these people. And just look at his personality- the way he acts; the things he says… Trump IS a warmonger.

                    The nice stuff he said while campaigning- about making nice with the Russians, and staying out of other people’s wars, and getting out of NATO, etc. was just BS. to make it appear to voters as if they had a choice- someone who would not do the same things Hillary was openly proclaiming that she’d do.

                    But of course, as soon as the election was over…he does the exact things Hillary said that she would do. And what ever happened to “Jail her”? A year and a half later…and much more new info about the Clinton Crime Family has come to live…and another reporter dies….and she’s still free as a bird.

                    In retrospect, it probably would have better had Trump not won. If Hillary were in, as disgusting as that prospect is, I’m sure more people would be “waking up” and a good part of America would have been rebelling by now (Not in the Libertarian/anarchist sense, but at least in a way which would challenge Federal power, and at least cause many conservatives to stop participating- which is really the first necessary step- and the only thing which will actually accomplish something).

                    I hate to say it, but at this point, I hope they do remove Trump; and I believe they will now. Not that his replacement will be any better- but this guy should be removed for betraying all those who supported him, and really, for being a dangerous nut- despite the one or two token little good things he’s done.

                    I’m embarrassed for having defended him to relatives and acquaintances. Even though the defense usually came down to not much more than “He’s better than Hitlery”…. Now it’s more like “He’s pretty much the same as Hitlery…he just tries to appeal to a different crowd”.

                    The saddest thing is though, that now, any inkling of liberty that may still be represented by conservatism, is doomed forever- as from here on out, the liberal-socilaist-Regressives[soc] will be in control- even if there is war, because I think enough people are sick of the constant wars, so pulling another George Bush isn’t going to help Trump, but rather will hurt him.

                    Sorry to say it my friend, but I believe he is done. Don’t be depressed though. He represents the injustice and violence of the authoritarian-collectivist state just as much as anyone else- and what he is doing now is proof of that. His political fall will be another crack in the dam; another step in the coming apart of the empire- and will cause more people to become disaffected, and ultimately contribute to the crumbling of Wurshington’s power…and that is a GOOD thing!

  5. After the Russians announced that they would acquire stakes in Uranium One, and while the Kremlin was promoting the purchase, Bill Clinton received $500,000 in 2010 for a speech in Moscow from a Russian investment bank that had ties to the Kremlin. Putin personally thanked Clinton, the Wall Street Journal reported, adding that a review of Bill Clinton’s speeches “found no evidence that speaking fees were paid to the former president in exchange for any action by Mrs. Clinton.”

    “Trump could have avoided so many Pinocchios* had he been more careful with the language. For example: “Hillary Clinton’s State Department was one of nine agencies that approved the deal.” Words matter.”

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/10/26/the-facts-behind-trumps-repeated-claim-about-hillary-clintons-role-in-the-russian-uranium-deal/

    Intentionally went to the WAPO story instead of some of the sites with less pretzel logic. Yes, there’s no hard evidence that the Clinton family knowingly did anything wrong. Just like there’s no evidence that Capone ever knew of anyone getting whacked. Are these journalists that naive’ as to think that someone up to no good at that level would leave an obvious smoking gun? (apparently, yes they are) You don’t get that high in the system by leaving a lot of loose ends and blatant activity. It’s called working the system, and between Bill’s 8 years and her time I’m sure there’s a lot of people who would be happy to cover for her (and as long as everyone gets a piece of the action, who cares if some Russians get a sweetheart uranium deal?).

    *WTF is that? Are we all 6 year old schoolgirls now?

  6. Let’s face it: we no longer live in the Republic of the Founders.

    We live in an Empire — an empire of endless, undeclared war; an empire of domestic spying and surveillance; an empire of endless, incomprehensible regulations; an empire of endless, unpayable debt; and empire of gluttony and obesity and pornography and football. Panem et circenses — “bread and circuses.”

    I realize that it has become cliché to say this, but it really IS like the decline of the Roman Republic (upon which the Founders consciously modeled OUR late republic). Just as in ancient Rome the forms of government — the Senate, the Tribunes — remained, as the Empire took shape it was increasingly characterized by private wars and partisans fighting for dominance — the way Caesar fought Pompey and Crassius. Does anyone really think that what is going on in the D.C. (which, in the post-9/11 world, looks like an armed camp, more akin to the Kremlin than a city that its namesake would approve of) is anything less that a quiet, subterranean civil war between the partisans of Hillary and the partisans of Trump?

    This will go on and on, until it cannot. And it will get a lot worse before it gets better. They’ll be using the NSA to spy on each other — if they haven’t already. (How did those ultra top-secret transcripts of Trump’s phone calls to foreign leaders get leaked if not by the NSA?)

    And of course they spying on YOU will get worse and worse, too.

    The Hillary partisans are more ruthless and Machiavellian than the Trump people, who mistakenly think that the Old Republic and its “constitutional rights” still exist. Just wait until they ban all your guns and pack the Supreme Court with justices who will uphold it. The shit will REALLY hit the fan then.

    And they WILL do it, too.

    Someday, the financial Ponzi scheme on Wall Street will collapse. Or the currency will collapse. Or the power grid will go out. Or there’ll be a racial incident and you’ll have L.A.-style riots from coast-to-coast.

    This country WILL burn — unfortunately, probably not soon enough for any of us to try to build something better in its aftermath… if such a feat is even possible.

  7. The American Bolshevik cousins are lusting to kill an American czar and all his family and then to exterminate as many American kulaks by every means necessary as they can.

    The assault on the US Constitution’s most exhaustive guarantees in preserving life and liberty: Amendments 1 and 2 are the necessary front for ensuring that once the American czar has been dutifully murdered, the kulaks will have no choice but to go to into the Forbidden Forest and disappear from history as the 100 Million Eastern European Christians did a century ago. Without a voice and without a means of resisting.

    Make no mistake, we are without a nation and are now strangers in very strange lands. I wouldn’t expect to survive what is to come nor would I, but I am damn certain of partaking in as much partisan retribution before I go off to the Forbidden Forrest. Die gloriously

    • Brazos, it would appear you and I have both been victims of the good old Tx. system of inventing shit. The wife and I have been raided 4 times since 2002. We had a single charge(bullshit)that stuck against us since it was all lies by the Just us system.

      The last time was 2017, Aug. 1st. It was a fluke I was home but I had just be let go due to no work. Otherwise the wife would have been home by herself and I would have been on the road, a typical places for a trucker.

      Of course the denizens didn’t give a shit, not needing anything even resembling truth. They came, they raided(big helo and then ground troops)and left empty handed because my renters ex was facing 5 felony charges involving taking kids across state line so she was desperate to give them her ex and me and the wife for total made up shit. When the pigs left, the head honcho was seeking succor and (following the Ft. Worth shootings of cops)said “And now they’re shooting at us”. I didn’t think they were good enough marksmen since these pieces of shit were still alive. I corrected him and said, “You mean shooting back” since there had been several murder by cops in Ft. Worth that year.

      I checked the numbers on what this, once again, unsuccessful raid costs. The helo was $2,000/hr not including the overpaid POS in it and then the ground troops, all driving their own unmarked cars and trucks. Yeah, we live in a great country….and you can thank all those POS in congress, US and State for this sorry state of affairs.
