WHY EVERYONE SHOULD BE LISTENING TO OVERSTOCK CEO PATRICK BYRNE

Patrick Byrne has recently emerged as a central figure in the broader Russiagate/Spygate/Mueller affairs and he has presented information that deserves everyone's attention.

Namely, Byrne has stated that the totality of what we've witnessed since (and apparently before) Donald Trump's election is the cover-up of a broader politically-based espionage operation at the hands of the Obama administration. This is a wholesale different notion than what many believe, which more closely aligns with the idea that the effort began with the election of Trump and was devised to remove him from power. That's partly true, but it's not the entire story and it's certainly not the beginning.

Obama's espionage efforts existed well before the 2016 election and I've dated the operation to back to at least 2014 (linked below.) In all likelihood, it probably extends back even further and hopefully that timeline…

MAKING SENSE OF THE CONFUSION: DECLASSIFICATION, COMEY, SOLOMON AND OIG REPORTS

Let's begin with this - DECLASSIFICATION has not begun yet. I've seen posts, articles, etc. all suggesting that received documents were a product of the declassification process and that just is not true. Not yet, anyway.

What has been received has been the product of FOIA filings; especially those from substantial player Judicial Watch. I monitored the DOJ website all day yesterday and picked-up where I left off earlier today and thus far, nothing. Recall, President Trump transferred the entirety of declassification authority to AG William Barr so whatever is declassified will generate from his office and only his office - the DOJ. Anything else out there being proffered as declas material, well, just isn't.

My bet from an article that I'm linking below and recommending is that we'll see declassification on Friday (tomorrow.) Here's why - consider this quote from the second item lin…

POST-MUELLER: EMERGING THEORY ON ROBERT MUELLER (ERGO THEN-DAG ROSENSTEIN)

Let's start with two concessions and here's the first - I'm fitting new information into an old story.

The second concession - perhaps this is coming from way far-out in left field; perhaps not. I don't know. If you're one who tunes into QAnon and I bet you are, this is in your wheelhouse and it falls back on the now old premise of whether Mueller, which according to Q would also include then-DAG Rosenstein, donned a hat that was white, black or somewhere in between reflecting a hue of gray.

Here is what I do know. There was one prominent, decisive moment in Mueller's testimony that absolutely altered the entire "Mueller construct" and at a fundamental level. It struck me in real time and I was slack-jawed as I'm guessing were most others who watched or read about the hearings with appropriate knowledge of the backstory on Trump/Russia. Of course, I'm talking about Muel…

OF COURSE MUELLER IS COLLABORATING WITH NADLER AND THE DEMS - Things are going exactly as planned and precisely as they should NOT be going

Below is an entire piece from Roll Call, which is well-written and accurate but unnecessary. Why? For these reasons:

1. Mueller's report was NEVER SUPPOSED to be publicized and available to the public ACCORDING TO STATUTE. I've written much about why this is but the Cliff's Notes version sounds like this - when someone is investigated for criminality and the result is that there is no evidence to support the allegations, THE JUDICIAL BRANCH IS OBLIGATED TO MAINTAIN THAT HIGHLY SENSITIVE  PERSONAL INFORMATION PRIVATELY BECAUSE IT BEARS THE ONUS OF PROTECTING INNOCENTS.

2. In the spirit of transparency and satisfying the demands of the Democrats (and for that matter, the President, because he knows he did nothing wrong), AG Bill Barr broke from statute; broke from tradition; and published the entirety of the report in appropriately but m…

 MAKING SENSE OF IRAN'S RAPID GEOPOLITICAL ESCALATION - An examination of available resources from the White House and Department of State

Earlier article asking if Iran was next as a function of a quid pro quo deal: https://www.statecraftdiscerned.com/2019/04/u.html
 To begin, this is an article I've wanted to write for some time but was snagged on how to accomplish it, make it meaningful and make it readable from a length standpoint (more on that shortly.) Before we get into it, let's start with a peculiarly timed current event relative to the matter at hand.
 I suppose that irony; perhaps coincidence, rules the day here. As a child of the '70s and as I begin here, I can clearly see in my mind the imagery of the Iran hostage crisis that served as an election issue in 1980. In short, it was President Carter who failed to resolve that crisis and it was his successor in President Reagan who brought it all to an end. 
 I've long contended that Jimmy Carter the man - …
