What started this back and forth between McKibben and von Reitz? Mike received an email from John S. who was praising Anna for some newsletter she sent out. Mike replied to John S. with this email, which was apparently forwarded to Anna, who then wrote Michael this email (see attached hyperlink.)
Michael’s email to John S.
“I am having serious issues with some of her recent writings. I have not followed her until recently. She is showing extreme bias that essentially protects the British Empire from culpability. This corporate perspective is a distraction, seems to me. The Queen working under the Pope is not proved in the evidence I have seen. The existence of the Knights of Malta, English Priory, since 1888 proves it to be the other way around. That is a misdirection that no one can do anything about. That is the nature of good propaganda (the problem is so big and confusing as to give one a hopeless, impotent feeling). OK, so you declare yourself a natural person. Then what? This is playing in the demonic lawyer sandbox and gets us nowhere, unless I am missing something. To me, the answer is to bar lawyers from becoming bureaucrats, judges, bankers, or politicians.
She recently disclosed she is a “good” Boston Brahmin. The Brahmins are intimately interlocked with the British Empire aristocracy, and since 1902, their collective founding of the Pilgrims Society and the interlocking of Boston, NY and London banks fueled by the slave and opium trade. The entire foundation of the Brahmins was embroiled in slaves and opium to build Boston. Can good sprout from evil? So the premise that there are “good” Brahmins that operate on the backs and money of endemic evil is dubious, or at least naïve thinking. She is claiming the benefits of that association without owning up to the utter corruptitude of that institution, not to mention its corrosive effects on the American Republic.”
For more info on the Brahmins, see our recent pieces:
Re: Your Failure to Find Precedent for Flynn Dismissal
Regarding the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss charges against General Flynn, in your recent call with your alumni, you expressed great concern: “there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”
Here is some help—if truth and precedent represent your true concern. Your statement is entirely false. However, it does explain the damage to the Rule of Law throughout your administration.
First, General Flynn was not charged with perjury—which requires a material false statement made under oath with intent to deceive.1 A perjury prosecution would have been appropriate and the Rule of Law applied if the Justice Department prosecuted your former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his multiple lies under oath in an investigation of a leak only he knew he caused.
McCabe lied under oath in fully recorded and transcribed interviews with the Inspector General for the DOJ. He was informed of the purpose of the interview, and he had had the benefit of counsel. He knew he was the leaker. McCabe even lied about lying. He lied to his own agents—which sent them on a “wild-goose-chase”—thereby making his lies “material” and an obstruction of justice. Yet, remarkably, Attorney General Barr declined to prosecute McCabe for these offenses.
Applying the Rule of Law, after declining McCabe’s perjury prosecution, required the Justice Department to dismiss the prosecution of General Flynn who was not warned, not under oath, had no counsel, and whose statements were not only not recorded, but were created as false by FBI agents who falsified the 302.
Second, it would seem your “wingman” Eric Holder is missing a step these days at Covington & Burling LLP. Indelibly marked in his memory (and one might think, yours) should be his Motion to Dismiss the multi-count jury verdict of guilty and the entire case against former United States Senator Ted Stevens. Within weeks of Mr. Holder becoming Attorney General, he moved to dismiss the Stevens prosecution in the interest of justice for the same reasons the Justice Department did against General Flynn—egregious misconduct by prosecutors who hid exculpatory evidence and concocted purported crimes.
As horrifying as the facts of the Stevens case were, they pale in comparison to the targeted setup, framing, and prosecution of a newly elected President’s National Security Advisor and the shocking facts that surround it. This case was an assault on the heart of liberty— our cherished system of self-government, the right of citizens to choose their President, and the hallowed peaceful transition of power.
Third, the inability of anyone in your alumni association to find “anybody who has been charged [with anything] just getting off scot-free” would be laughable were it not so pathetic.
Many of your alum feature prominently in the non-fiction legal thriller published in 2014: Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice. A national best- seller, it focuses on the egregious prosecutorial misconduct of your longest serving White House Counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler; your counter-terrorism advisor Lisa Monaco; Loretta Lynch’s DAG for the Criminal Division Leslie Caldwell; and Mueller protégé Andrew Weissmann. While they worked as federal prosecutors on the Enron Task Force—under the purported supervision of Christopher Wray—they destroyed Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs; sent four Merrill Lynch executives to prison on an indictment that criminalized an innocent business transaction while they hid the evidence that showed those defendants were innocent for six years. Both cases were reversed on appeal for their over-criminalization and misconduct. Indeed, Andersen was reversed by a unanimous Supreme Court.
Fourth, even if your many alumni don’t remember multiple cases that had to be reversed or dismissed for their own misconduct, Judge Emmet Sullivan should remember dismissing the corrupted case against Ted Stevens. Judge Sullivan is the judicial hero of Licensed to Lie. It is that case that caused Judge Sullivan to enter the strong Brady order the Mueller and D.C. career prosecutors violated repeatedly in the Flynn prosecution.
Fifth, there is precedent for guilty pleas being vacated. Your alumni Weissmann and Ruemmler are no strangers to such reversals. At least two guilty pleas they coerced by threats against defendants in Houston had to be thrown out—again for reasons like those here. The defendants “got off scot-free” because—like General Flynn—your alumni had concocted the charges and terrorized the defendants into pleading guilty to “offenses” that were not crimes. Andersen partner David Duncan even testified for the government against Andersen in its trial, but his plea had to be vacated. Enron Broadband defendant Christopher Calger had his plea vacated. There are many others across the country.
Sixth, should further edification be necessary, see Why Innocent People Plead Guilty, written in 2014 by federal Judge Jed Rakoff (a Clinton appointee). Abusive prosecutors force innocent people to plead guilty with painful frequency. The Mueller special counsel operation led by Andrew Weissmann and Weissmann “wannabes” specializes in prosecutorial terrorist tactics repulsive to everything “justice” is supposed to mean. These tactics are designed to intimidate their targets into pleading guilty—while punishing them and their families with the process itself and financial ruin.
Most important, General Flynn was honest with the FBI agents. They knew he was—and briefed that to McCabe and others three different times. At McCabe’s directions, Agent Strzok and McCabe’s “Special Counsel” Lisa Page, altered the 302 to create statements Weissmann, Mueller, Van Grack, and Zainab Ahmad could assert were false. Only the FBI agents lied—and falsified documents. The crimes are theirs alone.
Seventh, the D.C. circuit in which you reside vacated a Section 1001 case for a legal failure much less egregious than those in General Flynn’s case. United States v. Safavian, 528 F.3d 957 (D.C. Cir. 2008). Safavian sought advice from his agency’s ethics board and did not give them all the relevant info. The jury convicted him on the theory it was a 1001 violation to conceal the information from the government ethics board. The court disagreed: “As Safavian argues and as the government agrees, there must be a legal duty to disclose in order for there to be a concealment offense in violation of § 1001(a)(1), yet the government failed to identify a legal disclosure duty except by reference to vague standards of conduct for government employees.” General Flynn did not even know he was the subject of an investigation—and in truth, he was not. The only crimes here were by your alumni in the FBI, White House, intelligence community, and Justice Department.
These are just a few obvious and well-known examples to those paying any attention to criminal justice issues.
Finally, the “leaked” comments from your alumni call further evinces your obsession with destroying a distinguished veteran of the United States Army who has defended the Constitution and this country “from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” with the highest honor for thirty-three years. He and many others will continue to do so.
1As a “constitutional lawyer,” surely you recall that perjury (or false statements) also requires intent to deceive. In Bronston v. United States, 409 U.S. 352 (1973), the Supreme Court reversed a conviction of perjury. In Bronston, the defendant’s answer was a truthful statement, but not directly responsive to the question and ultimately misled federal authorities. The Court determined: “A jury should not be permitted to engage in conjecture whether an unresponsive answer, true and complete on its face, was intended to mislead or divert the examiner; the state of mind of the witness is relevant only to the extent that it bears on whether “he does not believe [his answer] to be true.” To hold otherwise would be to inject a new and confusing element into the adversary testimonial system we know.” Id. at 359. The FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn specifically noted that his answers were true or he believed his answers to be true—completely defeating criminal intent. Furthermore, General Flynn knew and remarked they had transcripts of his conversations.
“While in contact with what was reportedly the CIA’s liaison, Clinesmith was reminded that back in August 2016, predating the first Page warrant application in October 2016, the other agency informed the FBI that Page “did, in fact, have a prior relationship with that other agency.”
Beau Geste continues: An email from the other government agency’s liaison was sent to Clinesmith, who then “altered the liaison’s email by inserting the words ‘not a source’ into it, thus making it appear that the liaison had said that Page was ‘not a source’ for the other agency” and sent it to “Supervisory Special Agent 2,” Horowitz found.”
The FBI knew all along that Carter Page was not a Russian agent. The FBI had even used page as a spy on Russians. Total fakery !!!
It is outrageous that the FISC has not withdrawn all of its fake warrants. There is NO true Constitutional “Due Process” evidence adequate to spy directly on carter page, or indirectly on Donald Trump, presidential candidate by deceitful “2-hop” rule on thousands-to-millions of people not identified as ‘targets’ as required by the Constitution. The word ‘Predicate’ is not in the Constitution. In any event, all the ‘predicates’ were fake and unsupported, and Constitutional Due Process spy warrants can’t be based on fake, untrue, invalidated, preposterous ‘evidence’ bought by Hillary Clinton. Carter page was a CIA Agent, not a Russian spy. No-one went to Prague.
The ‘pee pee’ dossier was fabricated, and cribbed from bar-room jests. Papadoc was entrapped by Halper and Mifsud (FBI/CIA agents) and an Australian who gave $25 million the the Hillary ‘foundation’. Papadoc had no Russian agent contacts, and said there were none when asked. All withheld from the FISC. The written ethics of practie in the FISC require immediate notice to the court when any representations are found to be questionable. This ethics rule was violated in spades.
The ONLY REASON for the creation and EXISTENCE of the FISC was to protect the civil rights of unrepresented US Citizens from illegal spying. The FISC admits it has a very heavy duty to do so (almost as if it represents the unrepresented citizen defendants. Yet the FISC completely failed. The FISA to indirectly spy on a Presidential Candidate WITHOUT NAMING HIM AS the “TARGET” is extremely questionable, if not unconstitutional.
Yet the FISC said ‘where do I sign”, without even asking to see the Woods Records authenticating the crazy, suspicion-raising, fake claims. The rubber stamp FISC held no hearing on this constitutionally-questionable warrant motion, and did not even ask “have you told presidential candidate Trump, or later PDJT, so he can protect himself?” It is outrageous that the FISC has not held hearings to discipline the liars, withholders. ethics violators and oath-violators, and jail them or recommend prosecution.
Our reply: Our ‘Conclave Karen’ says to speak to the management, Beau Geste. Scumbag John Roberts is in charge of the FISA courts. He knows all of this is going on. Duh. It’s the plan to destroy America from the inside. He is not loyal to America.
When Ruth’s death is finally announced, citizens demand that a full autopsy be done. We want to have DNA confirmation that the body examined is Ruth’s (unlike the autopsy on Epstein where we don’t even know if it was Epstein). Then we want a legitimate medical examiner to determine date of death, cause of death . If Ruth has already been cremated, we need to know, from official crematorium records, when her body was cremated.
No one here is buying this fake news propaganda on Ruth. And we are equally incensed that the Supreme Court justices are participating in this hoax. No surprise, since Justice Roberts is responsible for FISA abuse judges, illegal spying on President Trump, and for vetting Obama as eligible to hold office as US President.
The article offered below under the headline link is to demonstrate how upset patriots are becoming with this constant Ruth Ginsburg propaganda. We cannot verify all of the posts inside the thread. We encourage you to do your own research. Why are these deep fakes being made and posted?
Michael McKibben and Douglas Gabriel, two trusted names in indie media, give you an overview on what to expect in Robert Mueller’s testimony in front of Congress on July 24, 2019.
Robert Mueller is a former military officer and could be arrested by the military for treason. His tribunal might not ever be known by citizens. So one wonders why this hasn’t been done. Clearly he is a dangerous enemy of the United States, with a long track history of treasonous activities with the Senior Executive Service, FBI, and DOJ and espionage with his British handler Arvinder Sambei.
AIM Patriot dx gives us an update on Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s appearance schedule. If you happen to be in the area, please go and take video evidence that she is alive. Take good close-up shots so we can determine if it is Ruth, a double, a holographic image. Thanks, dx!
RBG is scheduled to appear this coming September 3 in Little Rock. The Clinton Foundation is putting on the event.
Also, she’ll be appearing the previous week in Buffalo:
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will visit Buffalo in August, the University at Buffalo announced Thursday.
Ginsburg will engage with students at UB’s Law School and address the local legal community at Kleinhans Music Hall on Aug. 26. Event and ticket information for the Kleinhans program will be announced later.
Then on August 31st, she’ll be at the 2019 Library of Congress National Book Festival:
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be among the featured speakers at the 2019 Library of Congress National Book Festival, along with dozens of best-selling authors, novelists, historians, poets and children’s writers, the Library announced today. This year’s festival will be held Saturday, Aug. 31, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C
That’s a busy schedule for someone her age with her health concerns. Of course, a somewhat younger body double made up to look older could handle it …
