All Warfare Is Based on Deception

| December 4, 2018

If you can find the quote in the title, it was written up a very, very long time ago.

I detest politicians. More than that, I detest what drives them into being the slumguzzling thieves that they become. Theft of money, theft of power – it’s all the same. They tell you what they think you want to hear, just to get elected. And the minute they get elected, they are off to the races to grab everything they can get their hands on.

Even worse are the thugs and fellow travelers that surround them, and the hangers-on at the perimeter of the mess that has become our government.

The recent TAH article on Julian “Wikileaks” Assange prompted me to dig further, and I found the article at the link from Vox. It hits both sides of the issue, but one item caught my eye: Jerome Corsi kept coming up in the text. I don’t know how reliable Vox is, but the article about this hits many, many points.

And to think, all of this was going on before Thanksgiving.

The Mueller investigations seem like a manufactured conspiracy to me, with the attention-grabber Jerome Corsi right in the thick of it.

Then someone brings up Wikileaks, for no reason other than Assange lost his pussycat and wants attention again, but protests that he had nothing to do with any of this, and now we have this odd-ball connection with Wikileaks, Mueller’s investigation, Manafort’s dissembling, and our current loud-mouthed, attention-seeking conspiracy theorist, Jerome Corsi, who is right at the forefront of it – mired in the thick of it, as it were.

So who is lying, and who is not?

And why is Corsi sticking his oar into this? He’s addicted to creating conspiracy theories. He’s the one who started the rumor about bodaprez not being born in the USA. He likes to make stuff up, from what I read here, seems to be hellbent on causing trouble and stirring the pot everywhere he goes. He’s just published a new book. Is he really this desperate for attention?

We all know about attention-whoring, don’t we?

Why did Mueller hold off until after the President submitted his answers to Mueller to release the statement that Manafort lied? And where’s the concrete proof that Manafort lied? I mean hard, tactile, solid as a brick wall, physical evidence.

As I said, I don’t know how reliable Vox is as a source, however, the reporter makes some very good points and touches conflicting bases throughout the text.

Read the article at the link, and make up your own minds about this.

‘Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.’

Perhaps that’s the reason Mueller hasn’t been fired just yet…?

What a mess.

    You think it is a conspiracy because you choose to believe a career con-artist who has been PROVEN to have lied publicly while in office repeatedly about these matters.

    And you CHOOSE to have zero trust or faith in the integrity of a Republican, former Marine, Vietnam vet prosecutor.

    You choose Trump over ANYONE ELSE OR ANY EVIDENCE.

    There are people who still think Nixon was innocent. Decades after the indisputable facts prove he was a “crook”. Fortunately, nobody cares what they think because putting loyalty to a person over the interests of the country, or sycophantic belief in his word over the facts is something idiots do.

    • Ret_25X says:

      Actually, your assertions about Nixon are, as usual, mostly false. Through the lense of history, we now know that Nixon was nothing compared to those who proceeded him (right LBJ?).

      As for Mueller, he is not a Republican (being appointed by a Republican does not a saint create), and being a veteran means nothing if you spent your adult life putting people in prison based not on actual crimes committed but by being caught in his perjury traps. A concept right out of a Soviet kangaroo court. So spare us the righteous indignation over this snake. That politicians in DC like people like him says nothing positive about him.

      Corsi is a fame monger, but it is Mueller who drew him into the investigation in order to create a perjury trap for him. Since we know who his source on Assange was, and when he got the information to report it, we knew before the Mueller “probe” that Corsi had not committed a crime.

      Sort of like the last Democratic Coup attempt against Bush. Remember that silly “probe” that put a man in prison for a leak that never was a crime and who the lead investigator knew the identity of before the “probe” started?

      Of course you do.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Mueller – veteran. Yeah, I did look that up. Waving that flag is

        Certainly not knocking his service, and not going to get into virtue signaling here, but he has less time on active duty than many people who post comments here, which leaves me unimpressed. Period. And his veteran status is not an issue in this, so if you REALLY want to get into a tangle, you bony-eared assfish, keep it up.

        You started this pissing match, Taylor.

        All I did was ask valid questions.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Choose Trump over anyone else or any evidence –

      I didn’t choose anything at all. Asking questions is not choosing.

      Geezo Pete, I sure am glad that Squifishmcbbubblehead is not involved in anything really important, like sitting on a jury in a civil court.

      The horror!!!

    • rgr769 says:

      I served with a BG in Vietnam who was also a WWII vet. He was certifiably insane. Every one who had to deal with him thought he was nuts. He became purple with rage whenever he saw something in Vietnam that was inconsistent with the training manuals he helped write at Ft. Benning in the 1950’s. So, by your lame brained logic, we should consider everything he ever did as irreproachable. You are a moron.

  2. Cthulhu says:

    You also seem to take Trumps word for it without bothering to even skim or reading the summation of the thousands of pages of court filings already detailing much the framework of the case against Trump’s narrative and proving key elements of Trump’s narrative false.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Trump did not “collude” with the Russians, because the charge is -absurd- on the face of it.

      Y’all have simply decided “heads we win, tails you cheated!”.

      Lame. And blatently obvious.

      You persuade no one with your antics. Most assume even you do not actually believe it.

      But keep honkin Bobo, there. All you do is get us closer to the eventual break, which you and yours lose. Bigly.

      It is the Left that cheats, witness California’s ” harvesting” of zero-accountability ballots, felonious anywhere else, and 100% one-way swings post-polling. One hundred percent one-way. That is a major indicator right there. But you will ignore that while regurgitating Russian troll-spew. Ironic, no?

      It is the Left that are unrepairably corrupt. Demonstrably, obviously, and soon to be yet redoubled.

    • SFDefender 92 says:

      Please point out the one person that has been charged with “collusion” from any of those court filings? Isn’t it strange, that all the indictments, all the bluster coming from the media, that not one person has pled guilty to that? That’s not a narrative, just fact.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        He can’t point out shit. He lobs these bullshit grenades and then switches over to solitaire on his gov’t pc.

      • LC says:

        Unless I’m mistaken, there isn’t a crime of ‘collusion’ – so of course it wouldn’t be in any court filings. However, things like making false statements, identity fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, etc., all are.

        Saying, “How come nobody has been charged with collusion?!” is like watching a guy behead someone, police officers arrest him, lawyers charge him with murder, and saying, “But nobody has been charged with beheading!“. You’re getting lost in terminology that, I think, doesn’t exist in the legal world.

        That’s not a narrative, either.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Wish I had said that.

        • SFC (R) Blizz says:

          But that was the purpose of the special investigation. To investigate Russian interference in our presidential election and determine if anyone colluded with them. All the other silliness you write has nothing to do with this investigation. I’ll tell you a secret, if any of the crimes you mentioned above actually held water, the Democrats would be all over it. When the entire party is intent on changing the results of an election because they didn’t win, do you think they’d ignore even a smidgen of a possible law being broken?

          • LC says:

            All the ‘other silliness’ are actual charges that have been filed.


            • timactual says:

              And NONE of those charges have any connection to Trump or alleged collusion with the Russians.

              And just as a reminder, Russia/Soviet-Union has been spending a lot of time and money trying to influence US elections since the 1920s. Now that Trump is Pres. that fact has gone from being right-wing paranoia to outrageous conduct. *Yawn*. Spare me the newly discovered righteous outrage.

              • 2/17 Air Cav says:

                Remember the Steele dossier, the thing that led to this witch hunt? If you do, you are in a very small percentage of Americans who do, I would guess. It didn’t take long for us to learn that the report’s author was being paid by the Clinton Campaign, through an intermediary. Don’t hear about that any longer, do we?

                • 5th/77th FA says:

                  ^word^ and yes I remember. How many times have we posted and commented on the Bitch of Benghazi, lying, cheating, murdering, slut, whore from hell. Don’t think we could get a true investigation of her and BJ willie even if they were both nominated for SCOTUS. And their crimes go all the way back to the early ’70s.

              • LC says:

                And NONE of those charges have any connection to Trump or alleged collusion with the Russians.

                My, this place is amazing – seems so many of you have read a final report that isn’t even written yet.

                I don’t know whether President Trump ‘colluded’ or not with the Russians. I hope not, since I’m not entirely sure what the country will do if there is significant evidence of that. But the investigation has lead to multiple charges, and in the filings for Flynn, for example, multiple other investigations are referenced, and blacked out. This is an on-going process.

                Could be Trump just surrounded himself with asshole criminals and is as pure and innocent as the snow. That’s entirely possible, and there is no guilt by association. But if you’re an investigator and see a group of 5 people and four are involved in shady, criminal stuff,… you’re probably going to investigate the fifth, too.

                Let’s see what the report says.

                • timactual says:

                  We were not discussing the final report, but the charges you listed. If you have any evidence the multiple charges you listed involved Trump and collusion, feel free to post it.

                  “and there is no guilt by association.”

                  Pretty funny since that is exactly what you are doing.

  4. Perry Gaskill says:

    Ex, if you think the piece by “Perry Gaskins” was about the cat, you might be missing the point. This Friday will mark eight years since Julian Assange turned himself in to the British cops. Since then, he’s stiffed his supporters for more than $350,000 in bail money, ran the original rape charges out by statute of limitations, and still sits in his room after almost six years in the Ecuadorian Embassy. All because he’s too spineless to face the consequences of his actions.

    There’s also a good chance those charges might not amount to much given the legal issues involved. You can make it all about the cat if you want to, but to me the cat is only one of the latest incidents in what’s turned out to be the life of a pathetic failure. “Perry Gaskins” might disagree; I’ll have to ask him…

  5. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    After a couple of years of tedious investigations, of wheeling and dealing to get defendants and potential defendants to play ball with him, Mueller has nothing. Collusion isn’t a crime. The crime is conspiracy. And what was it that Trump conspired to do and with whom? Dunno. Maybe a business deal before he became president. If so, that’s called negotiating. And who is going to provide some evidence of illegality, Michael Cohen, the confirmed liar who would likely say anything to save his own skin? That’s a hoot. The Left is all agog with the prospect of any Trump or Trump family pet being indicted for anything and they just don’t care what is concocted or invented or served up so long as they get something. The Bitch of Benghazi was had dead to rights but the disgraced FBI leadership and DOJ lawyers quashed that mess. Hell, look at what happened at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. The Left was eager to string-up an innocent man and canonize a crazy woman with a penchant for rape fantasizing.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      And it appears some of them still don’t understand if Trump were ever to be removed from office that HRC still doesn’t get to be president. That ship has sailed off into the sunset with her 94% discounted tickets to her and Bill’s events…

      Trump’s a lot of things that Mike Pence isn’t. Folks should be clear on what they are getting if Trump were to be removed from office. Pence is a man who might be completely unelectable on his own, regardless of having served as VP and regardless of his never having had a meeting alone with a female.

      Trump might still be the lesser of two evils when compared to Pence.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        Funny, to me Pence was the saving grace in the hold-my-nose vote for Trump. Like so many voters, I would have voted for the Devil himself before I ever voted for That Woman. I released the pinch on my schnoz quite a while ago.

          Excellent post, and good linkie thingie Mi’Lady. Had to read the damn thing twice to start making sense of it. Pieces started semi falling in place after 3rd read and building a program to keep up with the players.

Good thing I don’t have the ban hammer, I’d of been done dropped it on its ass. This bitch (descriptive adjective used) really needs to study some history, not only recent but going way on back.

          Bodaprez put in office by the deep state Chicago Machine, it’s that simple. Hitlery was beat a teleprompter and then again by DTrump. There is barely enough people who realize how bad socialism is that still vote and helped save this country in ’16.

          Bush 43 got in on his Daddy’s coat tails (name) and multi millions of USD.

          Anybody that DON’T think the Clinton’s are their very own crime syndicate, well I got some bridges and oceanfront property to interest them in. The start of the sure ’nuff free shit army started with them.

          Bush ’41 (rest his soul) rode the wave of feel good from Reagan, and the dims not putting up someone with a real plan. I personally was supporting Perot, he had me when he said his first act would to be abolish the IRS and seal the border.

          Reagan Bush won cause of Jimmuh C. Poor old Jimmuh, his own party screwed him, along with the other career politicos, because he was an outsider. He was the dTrump of the ’70s, outsider wanted to drain the swamp. That’s why they destroyed everything he did screw up his self.

          Jerry Ford…good guy, the Mike Pence of the ’70s. Didn’t have a prayer.

          Nixon, busted because of some two bit idiots that he tried to protect. Shoulda thrown those fools under the bus from the beginning and he woulda skated.

          LBJ. Most crooked corrupt president in history, it just ain’t come to full light yet, and won’t in our life time.

          Kennedy. ’nuff said.

            Great analysis, FA. You nailed it in your insightful observations. You must be at least over 60. Most people under 50 years old don’t have a clue cuz they haven’t been around long enough to remember when this country wasn’t all effed up by commies/socialists masquerading as D-rats and the RINO politicians.

            • 5th/77th FA says:

              Thanks rgr769. I try. Pushing 66 real hard. Biggest advantage I have had is Mama started teaching me to read at 4 yo. By the time I was 8 yo was reading at college level. She was big on book learning. Have had a voracious reading appetite all my life. We didn’t hav TV for a buncha years and I had paper routes and magazine sales as a young’un. I continued this habit thru my adult hood, reading and studying as many sides of an issue as I could, for my own benefit.

              Nowadays, I do not hardly believe anything I read, and only believe 1/4 of what I see. One reason why I love this place. Such a wide, deep, and varied supply of knowledge; that is if you throw out Larsey, LC, ctuntapatooie et al.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          What is predictable about the clanker styling itself chthulhu is that he doesn’t actually read anything. He simply seizes on certain words and bursts into flames over them, and that’s the end of it. No wonder he was moved over to CA when he was in the Army.

          I thought it was very odd that Corsi’s name kept coming up in nearly everything I looked at, including his being the brains behind the quackery that Obama was not born in the USA.

          He seems to be aiming at some sort of fame-dome, with his fingers in every pie he can stick them into. That’s why I started asking why he is so heavily involved in any of this.

    Robert Mueller personifies all that is wrong in Washington, DC. IMO.

    • LC says:

      As for Robert Mueller … truly, truly, I do not understand how anybody with two functioning brain cells can still believe he is an apolitical good guy in a white hat.

      Why not? Seriously, what are your reasons? Because he’s investigating things surrounding a Republican Presidency? That’s what he was appointed to do – he wasn’t asked with, say, investigating the Clintons.

      Mueller (R) was originally nominated to leadthe FBI by President George W Bush (R), and confirmed by the Senate 98-0. He then remained in that position under President Obama. And he was appointed to run the Special Counsel by Rosenstein (R, and confirmed by the Senate 94-6), who was himself nominated as DAG by President Trump (R).

      What do you think Mueller is doing that’s so diabolically clever as to a) fool all the R’s who appointed him, and b) show that his lifelong Republican identification is a sham and he’s really a partisan for the other side?

      • LC says:

        “asked with” = “tasked with”

        Evidently one of my four brain cells died, and I’m down to a mere three. Still enough to feel Mueller is pretty apolitical in his work, though.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        LC missed the point. Mueller is chasing rainbows and cloud songs.

        Having a whack job like Corsi testify in front of Congress? Corsi is an attention-whoring conspiracy theorist, for Pete’s sake. He’s about as valid as a one-suit deck of cards. He stirred a pot over nothing.

        Mueller is wasting time pursuing this. There IS nothing, NO collusion, no nothing, but like a pit bull with a one-track mind, he won’t let go. He needs to learn that sometimes, hot air is just hot air.

        • LC says:

          Ah, I must’ve missed the ‘breaking news’ that mentioned Mueller’s report was released, you read it, and the conclusion was nothing, no collusion, and we chased rainbows and cloud songs.

          As for Corsi, he is a conspiracy nutjob, though so is the President for that matter (remember his investigation into Obama’s real birth certificate?). Fortunately, none of that matters – it isn’t about Corsi’s colorful ‘theories’, it’s about paper trails, evidence, etc. Unless you’re so naive as to think they’re building a case of he-said / he-said between Corsi and POTUS or something?

          I wonder, is Flynn a nutjob too? I mean, in some ways sure, but he seems to play a more prominent role than Corsi in the investigation. So are we writing him off as a nobody too?

          • Mason says:

          Exaggeration. He probably wasn’t a Republican when he was an infant, and I don’t think we have any current information on his affiliation (he’s always been described as apolitical), but back in 2001 he was a registered Republican.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        The problem with the Mueller investigation is that its original purpose was politically motivated to undo the 2016 election results and it has dragged on and on and on. The media were all atwitter with the prospect of Trump’s impeachment and the elected Democratic Socialists were daily mentioning impeachment and promising to take Trump down. All of that subsided over time as it became clear that the investigation was succeeding in ensnaring people in lies and criminal acts, none of which connected to Trump. I don’t doubt for a millisecond that if anything of substance was developed, it would have been leaked or announced with great fanfare. Instead, all we have to date (and it has been a long time) is a bunch of two-bit charges and perjurers trying to make deals, w/o a reliable finger being pointed at Trump.

        • LC says:

          The problem with the Mueller investigation is that its original purpose was politically motivated to undo the 2016 election results …

          I’m sure some people wanted to undo the election, sure. But realistically, how would that even work? We just call a ‘do-over’? Or just overturn the democratic process and magically appoint Clinton President? Because I’m sure that would go over well… No, the investigation is about how, why and with whom the Russians influenced the election. And already, there have been numerous indictments. And it’s entirely possible that even though multiple people around President Trump did bad things -aren’t we draining the swamp here?- the President himself did nothing wrong. Or, he did something wrong without knowing it’s wrong. Or he did something wrong knowing it’s wrong. There’s a lot of possibilities.

          …and it has dragged on and on and on.

          I don’t know what you’re comparing it to, but Whitewater took over six years, no? Iran-Contra was the same if not more. Other special investigations took multiple years, too.

          …none of which connected to Trump.

          That remains to be seen. And, I’d argue your campaign manager and National Security Advisor be wrapped up in things is a wee bit of a ‘connection’.

          I don’t doubt for a millisecond that if anything of substance was developed, it would have been leaked or announced with great fanfare.

          And you see that as indicative of nothing to come of this, whereas others see it as indicative of the professionalism of the Mueller probe. They don’t leak. Once all is said and done, we’ll see if anything connects to Trump.

          • 2/17 Air Cav says:

            The undoing is the unseating of Trump. If there had been fraud and conspiracy, then that would have been sufficient. The Repubs would not have stood by him early on. Many were quite hostile to him you might recall and some remain that way but have quieted down. Now, on to the main point. You say that “the investigation is about how, why and with whom the Russians influenced the election.” Really? Really? Bullshit! If that’s true, I don’t recall that Wide Load has been hauled in for questioning, which would be, under the facts that we do know, the appropriate place to start. You also say that there have been indictments. For what? For pl;aying gotcha, in at least one instance and nailing liars and crooks whose actions have nothing whatsoever to do with the claimed purpose of the investigation? Any number of them would have sang like nobody’s business to save their asses, but there has been nothing to sing about. Lastly, I see that you are an advocate of guilt by association. That some people in positions of power and trust abused that power and trust does not mean anyone else did, not their relatives, friends, employers, employees, or business associates. How long would you like this game to play on? Do you not have a point at which you say “Enough!” Perhaps not.

People coming out of the woodwork making false accusations, piling on, and then there was Dr. I’m- Apolitical-And-Just Believe-Me-Because-I-Said-So Ford, PhD. At no point did you say, “Yeah, this is crap” or did I miss that comment?

              Care to point me towards a source that outlines how Clinton was possibly working with the Russians to influence the election? I hate Clinton – I’d love nothing more than to see her facing criminal charges, too. Yet, despite multiple investigations by Republican-lead committees, there have been no charges, on anything.

              And, once again, the Special Counsel investigation is on-going. And there’s no guilt by association, no, but there is due diligence. When law enforcement investigates a crime, and one of the potential suspects tweets, “NO crime! Dirty investigation!”, they don’t just give up and go home. They conduct the investigation.

              If at the end of the day, it finds no wrong-doing by the President, that’d be fantastic. I don’t quite know what the country will do if there’s evidence of significant wrong-doing and Congress splits on party lines, like usual. But getting to the truth and protecting the country is more important than protecting any individual, regardless of party.

                I find that a Clinton connection is at least as likely as you do a Trump connection. I also find FBI complicity in the whole crazy, politically motivated scheme to target Trump. Steele was on the FBI’s payroll and on the payroll of Fusion GPS. The Democratic party–the DNC–paid Steele to conduct opposition research against Trump. Steele produced a doozy, packed with bullshit, innuendo, suggestion, tenuous connection, and dubious sources. It was piss-poor dime novel. That’s what started all of this mess and for what reason? To help Wide Load by paying for fictitious crap.

                ” they don’t just give up and go home. They conduct the investigation.”

                Unless the investigation involves Hilary Clinton and the misuse of classified information.

                ” I don’t quite know what the country will do if there’s evidence of significant wrong-doing and Congress splits on party lines, like usual.”

                Perhaps Republicans will do as they did for Nixon. Democrats, of course, will do as they usually do.

              Also, here you go:


              Referred from the Mueller probe, NY is looking into various shady foreign lobbying practices, including by Tony Podesta, whose name you might recognize. Also mentioned, Greg Craig, an Obama-era WH Counsel. Vin Weber, the other guy mentioned, is a former Republican Congressman.

              • 2/17 Air Cav says:

                And that has to do with Trump and the Russians how? Do you know what a witch hunt is? This is all so far beyond Mueller’s charge and mandate it’s laughable. It’s a big, very expensive game being played at the behest of Trump Haters.

                  Christine Blasey Ford was to Justice Kavanaugh as ________ is to President Trump.

                  A. Mueller
                  B. Mueller
                  C. Mueller
                  D. Mueller

                  If you don’t know, take a guess.

                  • LC says:

                    Ah, right. Because a present-day law enforcement investigation involving evidence, witnesses, courts of law, multiple Federal judges, and a team of experienced FBI officials is pretty much the same as a he-said / she-said case.

                    Got it. I maintain there’s hope for you yet, even on days like this.

        So you’ve never heard of the fake tanks and vehicles and airplanes set up in England and in France during World War II, meant entirely to fool the Germans in to believing there were bases in those places?

        Well, if you weren’t alive or don’t read REAL history, then, no, you would not know about those things.

    Can somebody ‘splain to me why so much venom is being directed at Jerry Corsi? Just don’t get it, unless he is finally getting the payback he earned for crossing John f’n sKerry back when, and then again when sKerry tried to occupy 1600 PA.

    • rgr769 says:

      It is because Corsi supported the birther inquiries against the D-rats’ Lightworker of the ages and he supported Trump. Also, Corsi speculated that the Russians may have obtained Wide Load’s emails, since their intel skils are not exactly third world.
