During most of the RussiaGate investigation against Donald Trump I kept saying that all roads lead to Hillary Clinton.
Anyone with three working brain cells knew this, including ‘Miss’ Maddow, whose tears of disappointment are particularly delicious.
Robert Mueller’s investigation was designed from the beginning to create something out of nothing. It did this admirably.
It was so effective it paralyzed the country for more than two years, just like Europe has been held hostage by Brexit. And all of this because, in the end, the elites I call The Davos Crowd refused to accept that the people no longer believed their lies about the benefits of their neoliberal, globalist agenda.
Hillary Clinton’s ascension to the Presidency was to be their apotheosis along with the Brexit vote. These were meant to lay to rest, once and for all time, the vaguely libertarian notion that people should rule themselves and not be ruled by philosopher kings in some distant land.
Hillary’s failure was enormous. And the RussiaGate gambit to destroy Trump served a laundry list of purposes to cover it:
- Undermine his legitimacy before he even takes office.
- Accuse him of what Hillary actually did: collude with Russians and Ukrainians to effect the outcome of the election
- Paralyze Trump on his foreign policy desires to scale back the Empire
- Give aid and comfort to hurting progressives and radicalize them further undermining our political system
- Polarize the electorate over the false choice of Trump’s guilt.
- Paralyze the Dept. of Justice and Congress so that they would not uncover the massive corruption in the intelligence agencies in the U.S. and the U.K.
- Isolate Trump and take away every ally or potential ally he could have by turning them against him through prosecutor overreach.
Hillary should have been thrown to the wolves after she failed. When you fail the people she failed and cost them the money she cost them, you lose more than just your funding. What this tells you is that she has so much dirt on everyone involved, once this thing started everyone went along with it lest she burn them down as well.
Burnin’ Down da House
Hillary is the epitome of envy. Envy is the destructive sin of coveting someone else’s life so much they are obsessed with destroying it. It’s the sin of Cain.
She envies what Trump has, the Presidency.
And she was willing to tear it down to keep him from having it no matter how much damage it would do. She’s worse than the Joker from The Dark Knight.
Because while the Joker is unfathomable to someone with a conscience there’s little stopping us from excising him from the community completely, even though Batman refuses.
Hillary hates us for who we are and what we won’t give her. And that animus drove her to blackmail the world while putting on the face of its savior.
And that’s what makes what comes next so obvious to me. RussiaGate was never a sustainable narrative. It was ludicrous from the beginning. And now that it has ended with a whimper there are a lot of angry, confused and scared people out there.
Mueller thought all he had to do was lean on corrupt people and threaten them with everything. They would turn on Trump. He would resign in disgrace from the public outcry.
It didn’t work. In the end Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen and Roger Stone all held their ground or perjured themselves into the whole thing falling apart.
Andrew Weissman’s resignation last month was your tell there was nothing. Mueller would pursue this to the limit of his personal reputation and no further.
Just like so many other politicians.
Vote Your Pocketbook
With respect to Brexit I’ve been convinced that it would come down to reputations.
Would the British MP’s vote against their own personal best interests to do the bidding of the EU?
Would Theresa May eventually realize her historical reputation would be destroyed if she caves to Brussels and betrays Brexit in the end?
Always bet on the fecklessness of politicians. They will always act selfishly when put to the test. While leading RussiaGate, Mueller was always headed here if he couldn’t get someone to betray Trump.
And now his report is in. There are no new indictments. And by doing so he is saving his reputation for the future. And that is your biggest tell that HIllary’s blackmail is now worthless.
They don’t fear her anymore because RussiaGate outed her as the architect. Anything else she has is irrelevant in the face of trying to oust a sitting president from power.
The progressives that were convinced of Trump’s treason are bereft; their false hope stripped away like standing in front of a sandblaster. They will be raw, angry and looking for blood after they get over their denial.
Everyone else who was blackmailed into going along with this lunacy will begin cutting deals to save their skins. The outrage over this will not end. Trump will be President when he stands for re-election.
The Wolves Beckon
The Democrats do not have a chance against him as of right now. When he was caving on everything back in December it looked like he was done. That there was enough meat on the RussiaGate bones to make Nancy Pelosi brave.
Then she backed off on impeachment talk. Oops.
But the Democrats have a sincere problem. Their candidates have no solutions other than to embrace the crazy and go full Bolshevik. That is not a winning position.
Trump will kill them on ‘socialism.’
The Deep State and The Davos Crowd stand revealed and reviled.
If they don’t do something dramatic then the anger from the rest of the country will also be palpable come election time. Justice is not done simply by saying, “No evidence of collusion.”
It’s clear that RussiaGate is a failure of monumental proportions. Heads will have to roll. But who will be willing to fall on their sword at this point?
Comey? No. McCabe? No.
There is only one answer. And Obama’s people are still in place to protect him. I said last fall that “Hillary would indict herself.” And I meant it. Eventually her blackmail and drive to burn it all down led to this moment.
The circumstances are different than I expected back then, Trump didn’t win the mid-terms. But the end result was always the same. If there is no collusion, if RussiaGate is a scam, then all roads lead back to Hillary as the sacrificial lamb.
Because the bigger project, the erection of a transnational superstate, is bigger than any one person. Hillary is expendable.
Lies are expensive to maintain. The truth is cheap to defend. Think of the billions in opportunity costs associated with this. Once the costs rise above the benefits, change happens fast.
If there is any hope of salvaging the center of this country for the Democrats, the ones that voted against Hillary in 2016, then there is no reason anymore not to indict Hillary as the architect of RussiaGate.
We all know it’s the truth. So, the cheapest way out of this mess for them is to give the MAGApedes what they want, Hillary.
And hope that is enough bread and circuses to distract from the real storm ahead of us.
With Brexit fast approaching, where’s the Queen?
There are few things you are dead wrong on as usual.
1.Most Progressives never believed in Russiagate BS,only the Clintonites and the Corporate Dems,but they are far from being Progressives.They are Republican lite.
2.Those “full bolshevik” policies are actually just moderate policies ANYWHERE outside of the US (I suggest you to travel more),that’s how much the overturn window shifted to the far-right in this country,
and those “full bolshevik” policies are actually extremely popular.For example Medicare for All is polling around 80% as of now among Democrats and Independents,but even 52% of Republican voters in favor of that.Any candidate,who pushes these policies can easily beat Trump.
And all of those full Bolshevik positions are unsustainable leftist twaddle that is the cause of the populism you are seeing around the world now.
The unsustainable nature of Democratic Socialism is rearing its ugly head as we approach debt saturation and pulling forward our grandchildren’s production to pay for today’s consumption.
Trump will win in a walk. You don’t understand Americans.
Act two has begun with the announcement by the Ukrainian prosecutor general of Ukrainian involvement in the US election. Remember how Poroshenko ran to Washington to be the first leader to meet with Trump. Probably to throw Clinton under the bus and keep Trump from turning over Ukraine to the Russians as well as save his own butt. It’s looking like Poroshenko may not even make the presidential run off in Ukraine now.
Also people miss how deeply involved MI-6 and by extension the five eyes into this affair. The exposure of these people needs to be through is there’s to be any hope. This was an attempted coup and people need to be brought up on Treason charges. If it leads to the highest levels of the Obama Administration, so be it. The Clinton Foundation was one of the keys to the whole operation. ( a little late to anything now, they’ve scrubbed as much as possible from that ) This can’t be allowed to stand or we might as well lay down and accept socialism and loss of freedom now. It may already be by 60 to 80 years too late.
These are excellent points which only undergird my argument that the incentives are rising for The Davos Crowd of globalists to serve up Hillary as chum to the MAGAsharks and let Trump have his scalp.
Mr. Luongo, it’s more than just HRC and her ilk. It’s her sponsors, like George Soros, Sheldon Adelsen, etc.
Of course it is Karen. They are the ones who will offer her up as chum to the conservatives to salvage their larger plans. That’s my argument.. Hillary is now useless and can be an asset.
“Also people miss how deeply involved MI-6 and by extension the five eyes into this affair.”
Dunno about HIlls, but funny how May suffers an unfortunate cabinet coup on the very same day.
tom, i agree with every word…..yet…..hope….. you are right.
i say this only because the rule of law in this country is now so degraded it is at best a 50/50 probability that NOTHING and NO ONE will be brought to justice for this act of treason.
should this transpire my conclusion will be that the lack of prosecution for any of those guilty of this treason will be the start of the utter collapse of public trust in the us federal government and our legal system …….and the beginning of the end of the united states as a functioning country.
15-20 years from now if no justice is served there will no longer be 50 united states.
Alas, we all know where this will go – down the memory hole. Some excellent investigative journalist will write a fascinating expose in a year or two, that only about 1,000 of us will ever read. We’ll walk away with fresh talking points, new arrows in our quivers to replace the ones so dulled with age as to have become old hat.
Hillary was just another horrible head upon the hydra. She’ll just fade into comfortable retirement now, after decades of terrifying success, She lived and ruled into old age; therein lies the ultimate tragedy.
They will replace her. They’ve already got half the freakin’ PNAC seniors back in the goddamned public saddle, while the rest prosper in the wings. Darth Cheney’s back at it in Syria, drilling for Big Oil. Hell, Darth Hillary may carry on in the background for another decade like the political liche she is.
We’re not winning, is the point. In fact we’re getting our asses handed to us. Have gotten, for decades.
My Gen Xers sold out / bought in, and became part of the problem when we thought we were the solution. Just like the Millenials today. Expect no better from Gen Z coming of age either.
So yeah, we’ve won a battle today – in a war already lost.
Head for the hills. Get as far from as many voters and their thugs, indeed their whole system, as you can.
And for Christ’s sake stop paying any and all the taxes you can get away with, and get your kids out of govt-run school. Change your life however necessary to cease feeding the beast your blood and treasure.
So long as they’ve got your tax dollars and your kids, they don’t care what you think, what you know, or how you vote.
Another great analysis of the swamp du jour. Nice job Tom!
More and more I find myself wondering what would Cecil Rhodes want for us now?
Did John Dee foresee Hillary?
Will they really “burn it all down” in a desperate attempt to continue getting away?
Is Hillary, Cain?
Or Trump, Julius?
Are we better off with the CNP instead of the CFR in charge?
Any idea when the Holographic Alien Invasion is set to begin?
Sooner now I’d guess….
Keep up the good work!
Russian collusion is a made up distraction from Pizzagate.
Just watched CBS Sunday Morning. Now that the Nausea has stopped I have 1 question. Is CBS the most controlled of all the MSM by the Deep State?
They have always been the most regime-centric news network.
Great article. Luongo nails it again. A detail worth speculating on: Tom says about Nancy Pelosi: “Then she backed off on impeachment talk. Oops.”
Pelosi surrendered on the impeachment issue possibly because her deep state NWO bosses have a more sinister escalation strategy for destroying Trump, that of staging mass terrorist attacks and blaming them on Trump’s “dangerous white-supremacist” influence. Almost immediately after Pelosi’s surrender, we witnessed the false flag New Zealand mass shooting, which the mainstream media indeed attributed to Trump. See for example
Interesting angle I hadn’t considered.
More likely Pelosi’s deep state spies gave the heads up to their loyal minion that she should distance herself from the impeachment call on account of the disappointment about to be served in that nothingburger “collusion” report.
However, since the left has legitimized burning of witches for “collusion” with foreign devils, can we-the-people get some MSM air time on Democrats “colluding” with Israel via AIPAC to get elected?
Hey, a guy can dream.
Good article. I hope that cleaning house isn’t just satisfied with hillary. Now is a chance to have a real new start in our gov. Obama needs to get exactly what he has coming– a past prez working openly to oust the following prez. A guy who catalyzed the muslim onslaught, and a dozen other unconstitutional actions.
Hillary is still a long shot but the odds have risen with the Mueller report such a thorough dud. Don’t dream too big. I don’t see them going after Obama though I agree with you
Well said Tom Luongo! I wrote this one for you all:
bottom line: if someone as insignificant as Jussie Smollett can get away with breaking the law what are the chances the Russiagate players will ever come to justice?
Smollett was released precisely to make you believe and get used to the corruption while shifting the Overton Window away from Trump winning on RussiaGate.
About the “reputation” of Robert Muller: He can only rely upon the fact that even he realized there was nothing to the heap of trash dumped upon President Trump over this. Backing off was the only option.
But his reputation rests upon three things that I will always see when his name comes up:
1. He protected Whitey Bulger when he headed the FBI’s Boston office, as he allowed Whitey’s Winter Hill Gang to attack and kill many in that city;
2. He protected Andrew Weissman, a corrupt prosecutor who was notorious for inventing crimes to have innocent people jailed for jollies, including many former colleagues of mine at Arthur Anderson;
3. He protected and furthered the career of James Comey, a derelict FBI Director who allowed the scheme to protect Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit’s to proceed when he said that “no reasonable prosecutor” would take the case against her.
You forgot his 9/11 cover up
