John Durham and Bill Barr finally ran out of the clock on Spygate. Why are you surprised?
Emerald. No . I had no idea I was being played for a fool. How would I ?
I was living my life honestly, working honestly, interacting with my friends and family honestly, and dealing with strangers honestly. I am not set up or equipped to read every single dishonest smoke and mirrors game being marched in front of my eyes 2 and 3 at a time . I am a citizen and taxpayer that hired politicians to do the business of "we the people". I did not hire the mob. And yet what we got Is the mob. So now who else should we add to this list? What politician or media person am I being set up by as I type ? Who will be the next con, where will the next false flag come from ? The entire game needs to be pulled down and seen for what it is. We are at, the turning.
You are the female version of Tucker Carlson. You have been prescient about so many things it's almost scary. I'm looking forward to the day when you'll have a bigger platform to share with the masses your great insight. I love your chutzpah and keep fighting these wretched liars.
So true Emerald! Conservatives need to wake up and realize most Republicans are trying to retain power and make money off the government. They’re no different than Democrats.
You are correct as always, Emerald. However those of us who read Sundance at The Last Refuge knew 2 years ago that Bill Barr and John Durham were respectively the Bondo and cover-up paint to distract from and conceal the real individual and institutional-level crimes committed by myriad high officials in the DOJ, FBI, CIA, State Dept., the Congress (especially the SSCI and Gang of Eight), and multiple contractors who had violated security rules with the NSA database. Not to mention complicit members of legacy media who dutifully spread fabricated narratives as being "facts".
And this is why I no longer celebrate July 4th. I’m sick of faux patriotism and graveyard whistling while the U.S. accelerates into tyranny. July 4th should be observed with reading the Declaration of Independence, and sorrowful reflection on the inheritance we surrendered.
You nailed it, Emerald. 🎯
Bravo! This is an excellent and important essay. It should be read by all americans, not just those who think Durham and Barr are heroes.
We are being lied to on a daily basis by the intelligence agencies and their "partners" in the media. Yet the main topics in the news are the Depp vs Heard trial and drag shows in elementary schools. I do not believe this is a coincidence.
Disband the FBI and CIA. Zero out their budgets. Demolish their headquarters and bury the rubble. Then pass a law that prohibits any of their employees from working in any law enforcement capacity up to and including dog catcher.
Wow. There are so many of us who believe what you just said. The question is beside running for local government or making a change at our local level, how do we win? I believe the answer is convention of the states. Time to fight back. As DC Draino said, the time to scare us about socialism is at the door is no longer here. It is HERE! This is a huge ploy to make us bow down to socialism regime! We no longer have a free country to leave for our children and their children. The answer is our STATES. Teach your children the truth about freedom! Keep fighting!!!
Ouch! I agree with what you wrote, and it needed to be said. I stopped trusting Durham only a short while back, after reading another of your pieces that made too much sense to ignore. Even so, it is a brutal conclusion to reach and most people do have trust in our institutions, unless and until they are persuaded to opt out of legacy media and start tuning in to alternative media, where the truth is told without manipulation. Thank you for giving those of us still trusting in Durham the slap in the face that we all needed, even though it stung a bit!
I suspect most people realized Durhan wouldn't do anything when we saw the President was unable to get his own subordinates to prosecute anyone but himself. Neither the laws nor American traditions apply any longer. We have installed an autocracy and half the country is participating. The other half is tolerating it. The only changes we can expect are an increasing level of oppression, unless we remove the current government, root and branch, and replace it with rational managers who will take aggressive action to remove the seditious bureaucracies, discipline the corrupt media, and reform the failed education system which enables the accelerating collapse of civil society. Maybe it's not too late.
Trump took the presidency with a promise to drain the swamp. The swamp drained him. Nothing changed. Virginians flipped decades of dem rule to install rep reformers. Nothing has changed. The congress is predicted to flip to rep control in November. If so, nothing will change, just the faces in the televised committees. The words will sound the same.
Until we the people take control of our government, nothing will change. Government designed to be for the people must be managed by the people. Otherwise it is not government of the people, just rule by the tyrants who seek to control us. It's up to us. We will get exactly the government we deserve. We only deserve what we work for. Get to work.
Is there no one in leadership who gives a damn? I knew 95% of politicians and those leading were out for themselves and purposely pulling down the USA. Is it 100%? Sure seems like it. I will never go down without a fight but I am realizing now, more than ever, that it will be a very lonely place when the battle comes to a head. God help us!
I thought we might get somewhere...until the bonehead with the bagpipes reappeared. He laid low until they needed to have him reappear as a distraction. It might have been a good act earlier in the show. But, they have tried to play us too many times. Time to move the FBI out to Fargo, North Dakota and demolish the DC building.
I say this with a wry smile and sarcasm…
Damn your prediction. I think we all knew deep down but you can’t blame us for having some measly dying hope that maybe, just maybe.
If a Republican wins in 2024, they need to have plans to shock & awe the crooks, politician and even career bureaucrats of the fbi and DOJ and clean their f’n house.
quoting Sundance from a couple of years ago re: damage control - "Barr is the bondo, Durham is the paint"
I accepted long ago there are two sets of rules. I also do all I can to push back. I raked John McCornyn over the coals Monday a week ago on a Houston radio show and it was the topic of that guys show right up until Cornyn got booed at the GOP convention.
Clarity, lucidity and insight! That's why I subscribe Emerald. We share the same frustration over being told to sit down and let the round up of Democrat criminals begin. The D.C. Swamp is bigger and deeper than any of us imagined.
So sad that's all so true. There was never any plan.
