ROBERT LUDLUM’S NOVEL ANTICIPATING OBAMA’S PLOT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

Chancellor ManuscriptTHE CHANCELLOR MANUSCRIPT (1977) – With the latest blatant abuses by the FBI and elsewhere coming to light here’s Robert Ludlum’s novel about abuse of intelligence-gathering by BOTH the left and the right. There are Deep State operatives, too, like in today’s headlines.

TIME PERIOD: From shortly before J Edgar Hoover’s death in 1972 up to early 1973. The novel’s “what if” premise depicts the 77 year old FBI Director’s death as a planned assassination to prevent the Nixon White House from getting ahold of Hoover’s legendary files. (That’s NOT a spoiler – all that is made clear in the novel’s opening pages.)

Those files contain so much “raw meat” on powerful U.S. figures that we readers are told that whoever takes hold of said files will be able to rule the U.S. from behind the scenes by blackmailing the rich and the powerful.

The novel’s naïvete shows in that premise. I despise Hoover but I’ve always considered his abuses to be the EPITOME of the behavior of “the intelligence community” (LMAO), not an aberration from it. The accumulation of private information about people carries with it the implicit intent to USE that information against them.

The Obama Administration abused the FBI and other organizations far beyond even Nixon’s corrupt activities. And, of course, these days Zuckerberg and his fellow Corporate Fascists cheerfully help “the intelligence community” (LMFAO) spy on all of us. 

At any rate this is an escapist novel so the tale gets told in a simplistic “good guys vs bad guys” way, despite Ludlum’s attempts at a more nuanced approach.   

HERO: Peter Chancellor, an up and coming novelist who is part muckraker and part conspiracy hound. His successful espionage novels have not only made him rich but have caused minor public uproars over the kind of governmental abuses we take for granted these days but which were considered shocking in this novel’s time period.   Continue reading

F.B.I: FELONIOUS BARACK’S INQUISITORS ARE CORRUPT THUGS

FBI coupBarack Obama’s Banana Republic administration continues to be exposed for what it was and I am still loving every minute of it! When the weak, inept and crooked little man named Obama was still in office you may recall that OVER FORTY of the government’s roughly 73 Inspectors General publicly complained about the way that the corrupt thugs with which Barack staffed every department were biased and were refusing to cooperate with oversight investigations. 

Recently we’ve seen recommendations for criminal proceedings against Andrew McCabe at the FBI (disregarded by Jeff Sessions, the biggest mistake President Trump made when he was mistakenly thinking Republican trash might be worth trusting).

The most recent IG report, which we’ve all known was being watered down considering it came out months later than it was supposed to, couldn’t ignore all of the blatant bias at the FBI. The link to a fuller look is below but first some nauseating excerpts.

As you read the verbatim messages below try to picture how America’s hilariously hypocritical Democrats would be acting if the piece of garbage George W Bush had sic’ed FBI thugs on Obama’s campaign in 2008 and the supposedly “impartial investigators” were caught USING THEIR FBI DEVICES to relay sentiments like that about Barack and his supporters:

FBI cartoon“During the course of the review, the OIG discovered text messages and instant messages between some FBI employees on the investigative team, conducted using FBI mobile devices and computers, that expressed statements of hostility toward then candidate Donald Trump and statements of support for then candidate Clinton.” 

“We were deeply troubled by text messages exchanged …”

“August 8, 2016: In a text message on August 8, 2016, Page stated, “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Strzok responded, “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

“Five agents, not just agents Strzok and attorney Page, expressed anti-Trump, pro-Clinton messages on official FBI devices.”

“In undertaking our analysis, our task was made significantly more difficult because of text and instant messages exchanged on FBI devices and systems by five FBI employees involved in the Midyear investigation. These messages reflected political opinions in support of former Secretary Clinton and against her then political opponent, Donald Trump.”

“Some of these text messages and instant messages mixed political commentary with discussions about the Midyear investigation, and raised concerns that political bias may have impacted investigative decisions.

MOTHER JONES: RECOMMENDED LINKS

mother-jonesRecently Balladeer’s Blog had another posthumous interview with Mary Harris Jones aka “Mother” Jones. Despite passing away in 1930 Mother Jones told me she is still a devoted fan of de facto Third Party President Donald Trump. As usual I tried to rein in her enthusiasm for the Donald during the following interview but Mother Jones is a strong female character and is very empowered so she simply would not be denied. I know, right?

BALLADEER’S BLOG: Well, Mother Jones, in our past discussions you’ve called President Trump the new Franklin Roosevelt AND the new Harry Truman. You’ve also compared him to real-life heroes like Frank Serpico and cinematic heroes like Robert Redford’s Brubaker.

Trump supporterMOTHER JONES: And don’t forget I compared him to the character Richard Channing on the old soap opera Falcon Crest.

BB: Yes, of course. Have you been following the latest revelations about the corrupt actions taken against Trump by the rightfully despised thugs of America’s so-called “Intelligence Community?”

MJ: You bet I have! I told you last time about the Businessman’s Plot against Franklin Roosevelt long ago and the same type of bloated rich pigs have been attacking President Trump. Republican trash like Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy are already selling out and trying to defend the corrupt forces aligned against the Donald.

Donald Trump rock starBB: The past few years have certainly been shocking. Many have pointed out what an unlikely hero President Trump has turned out to be for the working class AND for all of us Third Party people who have been longing for attempted reforms to the Washington D.C. Swamp.

MJ: You know it, sonny! If we absolutely HAVE to have a tycoon as president at least let it be a tycoon with a sense of noblesse oblige like FDR and JFK. Trump is cut from the same cloth.

BB: I’m not quite as enthusiastic about him as you are, but –

MJ: Pipe down, already! I’ve got a bunch of links to share with your readers. Here we go:

*** Don Surber has been on fire lately with a lot of items about President Trump fighting BOTH the crooked Democrats AND the crooked Republicans. First is his item The Party of Trump in which he points out how the Democrats abandoned the working class and the poor. Find it HERE

*** Surber’s wonderful item in which THE 2016 DEMOCRATS WERE SAYING HILLARY COULD PARDON HERSELF IF ELECTED – find it HERE

Such hypocrites! And Surber had this bit titled The Left Comes to Grips with Obama’s Failure – HERE

*** American Thinker had this item about Susan Power and her ridiculous claim that “someone else in the Obama Administration” used her security clearance to unmask Americans corruptly targeted by “Intelligence Community” thugs. It’s HERE

Henry HaHa Davis*** And here’s yet ANOTHER figure of color praising President Trump and encouraging more African Americans to recognize that he has done more for them than the Democrats have in decades. Click HERE

DANIEL GREENFIELD: CIA OR CNN? THE MEDIA DEEP STATE’S ECHO CHAMBER

Mascot with demo and repub headsHere at Balladeer’s Blog I am STILL fascinated by the ongoing exposure of exactly how corrupt and rotted the Democrats and Republicans have made the American political system. De facto Third Party President Donald Trump calls the latest revelations “Spygate” but no matter what you call it it is nauseating to see partisan zealots defending the misconduct of America’s rightfully hated “Intelligence Community” – the CIA, FBI ,NSA, etc.

Daniel Greenfield has a terrific piece on it – click HERE

LLOYD MARCUS ON MURKY MUELLER AND HIS ILK

lloyd-marcus-2Murky Mueller and his criminal cohorts had a busy week. I’ve already weighed in on it but here’s a take from folk hero Lloyd Marcus.

As a non-believer I don’t share his religious beliefs, but he’s a courageous and iconoclastic figure. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“Raiding the office of the personal attorney of the president of the United States is the most outrageous of the Deep State’s unprecedented, unhinged, and relentless attempts to overturn the 2016 election.  This raid should tell everyone that the Deep State will twist and bend the law to get rid of Trump.” Continue reading

SO NOW WE LEARN OBAMA REALLY WAS BUGGING TRUMP AFTER ALL

President trump saving childrenSo now we learn that yet again America’s unhinged corporate media and corrupt political establishment played a cutesy word game to pretend that United States President Donald Trump was wrong about something he was actually correct about. Remember when the media tried acting like President Trump was wrong about the Muslim situation in Sweden? And the Boeing situation?

Also, remember last year when a Muslim fascist used a makeshift explosive in New York City and Trump called it “a bomb” but our insane corporate media acted like Trump was “wrong” and “irresponsible” because they felt such a cobbled-together explosive device should not have been referred to as “a bomb.” I could go on and on with other examples but we’ve all lived through them once already.

Well it turns out that President Trump was right about Obama and his fellow criminals bugging him but, Comey and others tried discrediting President Trump by playing the kind of word game that Mafiosi play on the witness stand.

donald-trump-and-flagTrump’s foes in America’s 3rd World Level swamp of corruption pretended that since the word “wiretap” no longer technically describes the type of electronic surveillance that Obama and our “intelligence community” thugs were subjecting President Trump to, that they were being “truthful” when they claimed there was no evidence of wiretapping. IN OTHER WORDS TRUMP WAS RIGHT AGAIN BUT HIS FOES IN BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES WERE ONCE AGAIN GIVING DECEPTIVE ANSWERS.

FOR OVERSEAS READERS I WILL POINT OUT AGAIN THAT IT ISN’T THAT ANY OF US THINK TRUMP IS A SAINT, IT’S JUST THAT OUR MEDIA AND THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT ARE SO LOATHSOME IT’S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO ROOT FOR HIM AGAINST THEM.   Continue reading
