Roger Stone & Me

14 min read

Roger Stone recently gave an interview where he discussed me. He says that he believes that in October 2017 I engineered meeting him and “grilling” him about matters Russian. He is a 67 year old man being sent to prison, so one cannot blame him for putting some pieces together incorrectly, as he has done. I will lay out the truth here. The bottom line of it is: We all have experienced chains of events that seem too coincidental to be true but are anyway. This is one of them.

Though I try in general to keep my own politics out of DeepCapture, since they are relevant to the following story I will explain that (as Milton Friedman described himself) I am a small “l” libertarian and a small “r” republican. This often leads me to brush up against Libertarians, whose company I enjoy.

In August-September 2017 the Libertarian Party of Utah asked if they could hold an evening soirée in our then recently-completed Peace Coliseum. I wanted to say “yes,” but consulted my colleagues, asking them to agree that we were not going to open the doors to Democrats and Republicans. That is because, though I agree it would be wrong for a CEO of a public firm to extend such a courtesy to either of the major parties, I feel that when it comes to Libertarians, or Greens, or Constitutional Parties, or other fringe parties… well, it seems unlikely to tip the balance and give one of them the White House, so is therefore less objectionable. My colleagues assented, and so I gave permission to my fabulous assistant of many years, Kirstie, to inform the Libertarian Party of Utah they were free to use to central “Nucleus” of the building for their reception in October.

Around about the same time, Netflix or iTunes started recommending to me a then recently-released documentary, “Get Me Roger Stone”. I had heard the name years before, as some kind of high-level Republican fixer, and knew that in the Trump campaign he and Steve Bannon had emerged as the guys who had pulled off the victory. I did not watch the movie when it was recommended, but made a mental note that I should someday.

About a week before the Libertarian Party event, Kirstie came to me and said, “Have you heard of a documentary, ‘Get Me Roger Stone’? You should watch it. That is who is coming to speak at the Libertarian Party event coming up next week, and he wants to take you to dinner afterwards.”

If this sound strange, please understand that from time to time such things happen to me. DNC Chairman Howard Dean once came through Utah and sent a message asking if I would meet him and ride in a car with him for 30 minutes as he was driven someplace, just so we could get to know each other. Another year, Utah Democratic Party leader Dominick Dunn showed up for lunch, asking if I would run for Congress as a Democrat. Various Republicans candidates and pooh-bahs coming through Utah have shown up on my doorstep for similar reasons. Someone close to Bernie Sanders has repeatedly told to me that if he won he was considering me to serve as his SEC Chairman. So an invitation such as Kirstie was conveying is not such a strange thing to me. In any case, I told Kirstie to let Roger Stone’s people know that I would keep my evening free, and I watched the documentary “Get Me Roger Stone” that night in preparation.

 A week later, the Libertarian Party had a reception in our headquarters. Roger Stone showed up and spoke. Afterwards, he and I went out and had a long dinner.

Here is my best recollection of the dinner, in three parts:

  1. We spent some time just getting to know each other. I told him I had heard of him years earlier, seen the documentary about him, etc. I congratulated him on his upset victory in the election a year previously (he knew that I had not voted for Candidate Trump, but for Gary Johnson, Libertarian).
  2. He brought up what was on his mind, and the reason he had asked to take me to dinner: He wanted me to run for office. I don’t want to go into what he proposed and how he suggested it might come about, but I heard him out. I told him, “I need to run for office like I need a hole in my head.” He asked me not to say “No” outright, but to think about it, and I promised him I would.
  3. We spoke of the Russia matters that were then gaining steam.
    • My frame of mind was:
      • As explained my three essays on Maria Butina (cf. Maria & Me Parts I, II, III), since July 2015 I had detected from the Men In Black an abject lack of curiosity regarding the subject of Russian penetration of the US political process. That is because since July 2015 I had let them know (as is explained in those preceding pieces) that there was a Russian grad student in DC who said she wished to be a bridge for peace, she was inviting me to Russia to meet oligarchs and politicians and speak on Bitcoin, but she was also swimming around in our political class in DC, especially among Republicans…. But since July 2015 the USG had been communicating to me that it meant nothing to them.  And in March 2016 they told me they had studied Maria for two weeks, decided that she was just an ordinary graduate student, and not to worry about her.
      • Because by October 2017 the headlines were all Russia all the time, and because I had not yet fully grasped how crooked were the people who had sent me my instructions, I was still largely expecting an Anna Chapman-like network of Russian spies to be discovered and exposed. The one that was making all the headlines, the one that had distorted our election, the one that was gumming up Washington, DC. I was thinking to myself, “No wonder they miss things like this damn network of Russian spies, given how incurious I found them to be about Maria.”
      • I was curious to find out what connection, if any, my grad student pal in DC (Maria Butina) might have to the network of Russian spies that Comey & Mueller & Co. were going to bring down. I thought it most likely that Maria would turn out not to have been part of it, but thought the Men In Black might end up acknowledging: “Yes we sure were asleep at the switch on the subject.”
      • As I have revealed elsewhere, I knew that I knew important things, but did not know what they were. Thus I was taking it as my duty, to the best of my ability, to keep my nose out of the stories about the Russian matters. If I read too much of it, then my own memories and what I read in the papers would start getting blurred, and just in case someone showed up some day and asked me what I knew, I wanted to keep my memories pristine.
  • So that was my frame of mind. What did I say of it?
    • Zero. Nada. I told Roger Stone precisely nothing of any of the above, Maria, my involvement, etc.
    • When he brought up the Russian matters that were then starting to turn white-hot, given that I really had been trying to keep my head down and as ignorant of it as possible from the press, I could not resist asking Roger, What the hell is this all about? Again, I knew I should not be talking about it with anyone, but I also knew that I knew something, but could not figure out what it was that I knew. So I welcomed Roger opening up and telling me what he knew: he said it was a crock of shit. I knew vaguely of the whole WikiLeaks angle and his purported role, and he got adamant: The feds after me are saying that the truth is X but it really is Y. That’s all I remember.

We left things that I would think about his request that I run for office, and give him my decision when I had made one. For the next 8-10 months, Roger texted me every couple of weeks, sending me an article or two, and asking me my thoughts about the offer he had made me of running for office. Once (or maybe twice) in those months when I was in New York, he came over to my hotel suite and we had a meal to discuss the idea some more.

Eventually I sent him a text telling him the truth: I was flattered by the invitation but I was just not interested in running for office.

*********************************************************

Meanwhile, on the back-end, this is what was going on with Men In Black.

As I indicated elsewhere on DeepCapture, as of March 2017 we had gone our separate ways. I was not speaking to them through that long period. There was an exception, however, around January of 2017 2018, when we got together on an unrelated matter. In the course of that meeting I mentioned the story about Roger Stone: the Libertarian Party of Utah had held an evening event at our headquarters, Roger Stone had been the invited speaker, he had taken me out for dinner afterwards, and asked me to run for higher office. They wanted to know what my answer had been, and I told them that I had said, I am not inclined to do so but I will give it some thought.  The Russian matter came up only in passing, at the end: I confirmed to them that I had told Roger nothing, and what Roger had told me about WikiLeaks: Feds were claiming that the truth was X but actually the truth was Y. I also mentioned that around Christmas 2017 I had been in the White House, had lunch with HR McMaster, and when he had brought up the Russian investigation I had also said nothing, because I knew I was in a White House under federal investigation and figured I probably should not muddy up the investigation by saying anything (not saying anything to HRM was a big mistake, obviously: we are friendly and I should have trusted him).

For January-April I continued on my path of trying not to follow anything in the news about the Russian scandal. I figured it would reach me when it reached me. When it did, I would likely find myself sitting in front of a panel of Senators explaining how indolent and incurious the USG had been about the possibility of Russian penetration of the USA’s political processes (as I had seen when I told reported about Maria swanking around with all those Republicans, and meeting Don Jr. clandestinely, etc.), and that is why they had missed that Anna Chapman-like network of Russian spies that was just making all the headlines.

By late April of 2018 it was becoming impossible to filter out of my knowledge the fact that the Russian scandal was turning from white-hot into a nuclear meltdown. I began reading about it, and started to see how little actual substance seemed to be involved, so that by May a terrible thought kept occurring to me: What if this entire “Anna Chapman-like network of Russian spies” that gets “discovered” and “exposed” turns out to be….. nothing but a Russian grad student named Maria Butina? About whom they actually knew (from me) since July 2015, whose every move and meeting they had known about (again, through me) for much of the time since then (often before those meetings occurred)? And in the case of one significant meeting that I have never revealed, the meeting occurred because of me, because they had told me to grease it into place?  What if this whole “Russian spying scandal” turns out to be is Maria Butina, whom in March 2017 they told me they had studied for two weeks and decided that she was simply a grad student in DC? And if that was true, then it meant that this crazy hunch I had had in September 2015 was true: the Men In Black were lying to me, they were putting on a show about being disinterested in Maria, but were up on her the whole time…. But then why had they allowed it all to continue? Because (as first crossed my mind in September-December 2015), maybe they are letting Maria Butina do this because they were creating a beautiful Can-O-Scandal to shake  up and crack open and spray all over the Republican Party any day they wanted?

I know it sounds ridiculously stupid now, but I put all that together, then dismissed it. No, that cannot possibly be. You’ve seen too many movies. But by late May 2018 I was having trouble dismissing it.

As I explained in Maria & Me Part III: Betraying Maria, around June 1, 2018  I was in Washington, Maria sought me out, and came to my hotel. I heard what she had to say, and it reinforced the picture I outlined above.  Our meeting ended with me telling her that she was what in English we called a “loose end” in some big scheme I could not entirely fathom, but either FSB goons were going to show up and whack her, or she was going to be arrested. I still could only put the pieces together vaguely, but if my hypothesis was correct, that much seemed certain. I told her I wish she would walk over that very moment to the FBI building a few blocks away, knock on the door and ask to speak to someone, saying, “I’m sure you’ve read about me and are concerned: are there any questions I could answer?” She refused, telling me that as a loyal Russian she could never do that.

That is when I sought out a bigshot Republican lawyer in DC and asked him to take me to someone who was providing adult supervision. He listened to five minutes of my story (he is a terrible listener) and told me I was out of my mind, and refused to help me. I told him that I was thinking of walking into the DOJ and asking for Robert Mueller: he replied that the Mueller investigation was unprecedented in American history, the guy was a hang-‘em-high guy, and if I went to see him Mueller would crush me.

I still had trouble believing the picture that I was putting together in my head, so again I spun in circles for another 2-3 weeks, trying to figure out what to do. In early July, 2018 I was in Atlantic City giving a talk, and that evening Youtube served me clips of a Congressional hearing that had been held that week with an FBI agent named “Peter Strzock”. Suddenly everything snapped into place: my outlandish hunch was correct. And (because of other events I knew about but have not yet made public), I suddenly I realized that I was the loose end.

At any previous period in my life, what I would have done then was write a letter and then through Overstock send it to 50 million of my closest friends while going on TV the same day. AThat would have been the Hollywood ending. However, in my 2005-2008 battle with Wall Street, when I figured out how the corrupt settlement system was being manipulated by cheats (who all seemed tied to Stevie Cohen) and that it would bring the entire system crashing down (as Greenspan later testified to Congress in 2008), I had tried an approach like that, and it worked poorly. As I have written elsewhere, I learned that the world is not as depicted in The Pelican Brief: instead of honest journalists and investigators rushing to my aid, the System came crashing down on me. So I decided that this time, I was not going to be an Irish hothead, I was going to be strategic.

For reasons that will become clear at some future date, my first thought was to go to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but I looked at its composition and saw reasons to believe it might be a really bad idea. I thought of going to the relevant IG’s, but a little research confirmed that was an even worse idea (in fact, I figured it would get me killed). I went to a federal judge whom I know socially, and left him a handwritten note outlining the situation: the answer I got back was, You cannot come to me with this but you need to go to someone. Finally, I realized: the Constitution gives the power to declare war to the House (“the chamber closest to the people”), and that since I had been used in a soft-coup, and a coup is a national security matter, I should find someone there to talk to. Which I did.

If I had it to do over again, knowing everything I know now, I should have been an Irish hothead. I should have skipped all that and flown from Atlantic City directly to New York City, walked into Fox, CNN, or PBS, and told my story. The whole story (not just the 15% I told that evening last August). But I did not. I had lots of reasons for not doing so: I thought it could lead to civil violence, I thought it might cause a conflagration, I thought it would marr me as a witness, I thought if might hurt the company… But in the end, it is ironic: the one time in my life I absolutely should have done the hotheaded thing, I decided, This time, I’m going to work within the System.

********************************************************************

In any case, getting back to Roger Stone: No, what he said in his interview was incorrect, he has made some faulty connections (67 year old men going to jail get to do that). I did not engineer his visit to Utah, the Libertarian Party invited him, I knew nothing of it, a week before his visit I barely knew who he was when I was informed he was coming and wanted to take me to dinner, and I was not in touch with Men In Black during that period anyway. It is simply a coincidence that the guy whom Roger chose to approach with a request to run for higher office, is in fact the same guy who was in on the Russian and Clinton Investigations and knows the secrets that have been hidden (in a nation of 335 million, I agree that’s a strange coincidence). If over dinner I “grilled” him too hard about the Russian scandal it was because I was trying to piece together what I knew with what he knew, without the confusion of trying to piece it all together from a clearly-corrupt press. No one had asked me to ask him anything, and when a few months later I mentioned to the feds that Roger Stone and I had met and had dinner, all I mentioned was that he told me he was telling the truth about what he was saying publicly (the details of which are too obscure for me even to remember). And that he had asked me to run for higher office, about which the Men In Black were more curious (though they did not try to influence me either way, and I let them know the same time I let Roger Stone know when I decided that it was not for me).

On the other hand: knowing what I know, I confidently assert that the entire Russian investigation should be overturned, and (as my stories on Maria may make clear), some of those involved in pursuing it should be prosecuted. It is ridiculous that further judicial actions would be taken regarding anything that flows from that Russian investigation until the rest of the facts come out. The entire thing was a stitch up. By July, 2015 (and, I have some reason to suspect, perhaps as early as March 2015), it was being engineered. I know because I was (unwittingly) part of the engineering. I saw them lay the tracks, I helped them put the locomotive together,  I saw them fill it with coal and send it on its way. I saw the whole thing (without quite understanding at the time what I was watching), and it was a fix, from July, 2015. The fact that it rolled down the tracks and struck people like Roger is incidental, given that it was fugazi from the start. As I understand it, Roger was charged with, in a voluntary appearance in Congress, while not under oath, saying something on an immaterial matter that contradicted what someone else said about that matter, and he was convicted by a jury led by an activist who showed clear bias towards him both before and after the trial and who may have lied to get through the voire dire, all under the supervision of a judge (Amy Berman Jackson) who seems to have attended the Tanya S. Chutkan & Emmet Sullivan School of Judicial Impartiality. When all the facts are known, it is going to be another enormous embarrassment to the US judicial system.

I have committed to Powers That Be that I am not going saying any more than what I said on TV last August, until after this November’s election. After that, I am going to tell the whole story, but until then I am to “trust the process.” And this I will do. I have been convinced that it is the right thing to do if the forces of treachery and corruption are going to be defeated by Rule of Law.

On that point my Rabbi says I am wrong. We spoke from quarantine a few weeks ago, and he still thinks I should just come forward and tell the 85% of the story I omitted last August.  I told him that I think about doing it every day, just going back on Fox or CNN and telling the whole truth to the American people. I told him that I have written a letter to the DOJ that begins, “Dear General Barr: I am sorry I muddied up your federal investigation, but…” and then goes on for three pages about MLK’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail, my conscience, my duties as a citizen, etc. In a flash Buffett replied, “Don’t do that. Just write a letter that says, ‘Dear General Barr: I am sorry I muddied up your federal investigation, but I get to live with myself too.’ Then go on TV.”

I am not. I am trying to do the right thing, and that includes, not fucking up a federal investigation of historic magnitude and significance (any more than I already have).

As you can see, this puts me in a terrible quandary: I am to remain silent until November. I believe that when I do speak, what I have to say will make it obvious (if it is not obvious by then) that the entire thing was pure political espionage, a stitch-up from the start, and that any weird “process crime” convictions such as Roger is alleged to have committed  should be thrown out.  It all should be thrown out, and the people at the top of the orders should go to jail.

Yet Roger is going to prison in 30 days, this June, the prison is full of Covid-19, and Roger is 67.

I am reminded of a scene in that fabulous old movie Midnight Run, with Charles Grodin and Robert De Niro. There is a point where Grodin has to save De Niro (“Jack”) from drowning in a river by extending a branch to him, while De Niro is furiously shouting at him he’s going to cuff him and take him to jail. Grodin finally delivers a marvelous line, “You’re making it really hard for me to do the right thing here Jack.”

And to the Powers That Be I say, You are making it really hard for me to do the right thing here folks.

I get to live with myself, too.

  1. Do what Mr. Buffet says, so you can breathe again, Patrick. You refer to meeting Mr. Buffet as being one of the “great tailwinds” of your life. How many people can say that? Indeed, Mr. Buffet was meant to be here, guiding you through these murky waters right now. I sincerely believe we come into each other’s lives for a reason. Trust your rabbi, Patrick. Do what you know to do and let go of the outcome. It’s neither your fault nor your responsibility. Good luck, dear man.🦋

  2. You have the right idea, Patrick. As much as I’d love to know how much deeper the rabbit hole goes, best to let the investigation go on and reveal it all to the American people ( hopefully). It’s fundamental to let the law hear and decide first without bias, and be weighed on the scales, and I don’t have to explain that to you obviously.
    On the other hand, if it’s apparent that justice is not heard by November’s election, and truth is being covered still I advise you to spill the beans !

  3. Thanks for the article Patrick.That is a tough decision to make regarding when you tell the rest of your story.I probably would suggest you take your mentors advice but of course I don’t know what the rest of the story entails.

    What I do know is that both politicians and the people who vote them into office are becoming increasingly dangerous.It seems clear to me that there are a significant amount of citizens who are so brainwashed by their favorite political team that they don’t care about what truth is or the harm of bearing false witness against others.And this trend the DNC and their brainwashed masses seem to favor of bringing up phony charges so they can “get” their political rivals on “process crimes” is alarming to say the least.

    Twitter has shut down my account at least 10 times even though I never posted threats,insults,curse words or graphic images.Many of my posts explained why I believe that both political parties are corrupted and encouraged people to unite behind basic principles rather than corrupt political parties.IMO,all political parties are easily co-opted & corrupted and things won’t change much until citizens unite behind truth/freedom/goodwill/integrity/humility/Non-Aggression Principle/Golden Rule/voluntarily helping others and become an economic force.

    The twitter overlords who pander to the DNC didn’t like my opinions so they shut my account down over and over again.(Here is my MINDS page as an example of the type of stuff I posted.)
    https://www.minds.com/truthfreedompeace/
    I hope to soon see a growing number of people start to boycott companies like Twitter,Facebook.Apple,Amazon,Google and Microsoft.
    Seems to me that all these big tech companies are just pandering to the DNC.

    Patrick,while I do believe you would make a good candidate for political office, I believe you could do more good as President of a company which ran a PRINCIPLED “super website” that combines social media/networking with commerce/trade/finance as I have suggested before. https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/919937833449545728?referrer=truthfreedompeace

    Whenever you do decide to tell the rest of your story,I believe you will have the support of many.
    Have a good one.Peace

    1. Now if only there was a way to get more real life people with the integrity of characters like Mardukas,Walsh and Mosely interested in working together to make not just America great,but the whole world great…..
      That sure would be something to see.

      A famous guy once said “thy kingdom come,thy will be done,on earth as it is in heaven”.A very lofty goal,but I would say the most inspiring and worthwhile goal there is.

  4. CNN (CIA)? Fox (controlled opposition)? No, you should immediately contact Chanel Rion at One America News Network, and provide her with your entire amazing story, as an “insurance policy”. The Powers that Be are not out to “do the right thing”, I’m afraid. Institutional preservation is their main aim. And they will even murder to achieve that goal.

    Godspeed, my friend.

      1. Perfect!
        Beyond that Mr. Byrne (Patrick, if I may?), difficult as it is, do trust the system. I know we as a nation (and world as well) are currently on a chaotic and terrifying ride, but (IMHO) a necessary one. It is not enough that half of the public gets what the fraud that has been perpetrated on us, a substantial percentage of those who still believe in the “Mainstream” “Russian Collusion” and other assorted and fractured fairy tales (ghost stories?) must come to see for themselves that their goodheartedness and genuine passions for a fair and just society have been turned on them and that they have been used by the very 1% that they have been protesting against since Occupy Wall Street. Once they have clipped the strings that connect them to the Puppet Masters is when all can be revealed and the swift and solemn Sword of Justice can be brought down upon the Wrongdoers. We must have more than a 50-ish% concensus or we become the mob-ocracy the Founders so rightly warned us against.

  5. Wow!!!

    Just think you could be working a 5 figure job trying to support a family while every day getting closer to for the most part forced retirement with a $1200 government safety net and if your lucky a couple of years salary saved up.

    You have some tough decisions but if you looked at the lives of most humans on this planet as an alternative, would you rather change places?

    I honestly wish we had a few thousand more people with your principals making the decisions.

    Enjoyed the article.

    P.S. If Bernie really was going to ask you to head the SEC he should have announced it before the primaries, it would have benefited him greatly, IMHO

  6. WOW Patrick, this gets more mind blowing all the time (for those of us trying to learn and follow along). You have been through hell and so have many others. It should be a political earthquake when/if all gets sufficiently exposed and prosecuted. I can only wish all the best for you and for our country as this gets sorted out. Thank you for all of your info and observations. Be well.

  7. Patrick, possible date correction?? In this passage you say Jan. 2017 but I think you mean Jan. 2018?? Because it would be AFTER the Roger Stone visit to Utah in Oct. 2017:

    “There was an exception, however, around January of 2017, when we got together on an unrelated matter. In the course of that meeting I mentioned the story about Roger Stone….”

  8. Patrick, please sit tight and be patient. I know you must feel frustrated. Roger Stone will be fine. He won’t go to jail because they need those cells now for the rioters and looters!

    The FBI’s top lawyer Dana Boente resigned on Friday. “The decision to dismiss Boente came from high levels of the Justice Department rather than directly from FBI Dir. Christopher Wray.” I wonder if Wray will get the chop next.

    Why don’t you start a different project now? Not for Deep Capture but for your future (auto)biography? How about recording memories of your childhood from your mother and brother before that information is lost?

    De-stress by listening to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnJaayv6fsI&t=947s

  9. Patrick
    I am concerned that all this will come out AFTER the election.
    American’s need to know the story BEFORE the election so they can vote accordingly.
    thanks
    bob

    1. Hi Bob. My name is Vincent and I also have concerns in that regard, but when I reign in those emotions and think the matter through intellectually I see the wisdom of the timing. This cannot appear political for one, that is that the biggest bombshells would come out at a moment they appear to impact the election (despite our instincts feeling that would be good), and two, a larger groundswell is needed to support the Machinery of Justice because a 50-50-ish split will only further tear the fabric of our Nation (and our World) and lead to a greater conflagration than what we have seen in the streets in recent weeks–It would ignite a Hot Civil War (yet another fortuitous distraction for those trying to avoid being held accountable for their seditious acts). Better that more people can realize the falsity that has been perpetrated against so that they support prosecutions rather than resist them. We need a 65-75% consensus!
      In the meantime, trust the election will be legitimate and secure and most importantly VOTE (locally), VOTE (statewide), VOTE (nationally)!

    2. Exactly! Why hide facts from the public? That is deceptive.

      Most of us have learned horrible things about those we supported. It sucks but we adjust and move on.

      I for one, would rather have more information, even if I don’t like it.

  10. You be safe. That is most important!
    if you do not know what you want to do. Do nothing.
    Take care of #1 yourself…. trust few.
    …..good will win me thinks…one day all the crazy shit will be in the past..

  11. Patrick,

    you have my highest respect and admiration for your good fight! Wish I could say the same. Lost everything to Wall Street (not just my family’s life savings but my family, both immediate an extended as well as 18 friends. Nearly ended my life over it but that didn’t turn out the way I wanted either)
    What ever happened to CMKX (CMKM diamonds)? If you know or have an opinion I would appreciate you sharing.
    God bless and stay safe…good men are few and far between.
    DiamondBilly

    PS:I would have taken Buffet’s advise, but I never walked in your shoes.

  12. Shouldn’t you be spilling the beans *before* the election? I mean, how are voters supposed to make an informed decision if they don’t know all the facts?

    Although Bill Barr seems to be setting thing towards the right track, the fact that Roger Stone is on his way to jail for *maybe* fibbing while not under other, suggests the system still has a ways to go, especially when they are letting actual criminals off willy nilly for rioting and looting.

  13. Patrick,
    Thank you for sharing. I am surprised by the idea that the supposed ‘good guys’ do not want the truth to come out prior to the election and available to the American people when they make elect their representation. Almost invariably, the good guys support transparency and want the truth known far and wide. Meanwhile the forces of darkness want to do their dirt in the shadows.

    Without going into what you know and they’ve convinced you not to share, can you share anything about how they convinced you that continuing the cover up of wrongdoing until after the election was the ‘right’ thing to do? How did you get comfortable it wasn’t a snake in the grass (like Peter Strzok) being a bad guy while pretending to be a good guy?

    That seems very much like the swamp saying let us get back in full control, sweep this Trump character out of power and out of town, and then the truth can come out once we control the system and ensure we get away with it.

    1. They are not saying that it should be covered up until after the election. They are making it clear that coming forward alone will do no good, but they are handling it and to let them do so. “The wheels of justice grind slow but fine.”

      I agree that it should be out before the election so that voters get to make an informed choice. And not as an October Surprise, either. Or even September. Which means we are down to 2.5 months.

      1. Patrick, thank you for responding. I and many here greatly appreciate your openness and engagement.

        Given the slowness of the process, it will be going on throughout the election, even if started soon. It feels like we’ve already run out of time for it to be done without it being seen as a political hit as opposed to justice served. This timing seems political; that the administration wants it going through the election as opposed to dealt with prior.

      2. We are down to about 4-5 weeks. “It” should not be revealed later than July-August since once we hit September-October it is getting awfully close to the election.

  14. Hello Patrick,
    Just did my first deep dive into Hannibal by listening to Patrick Stewart’s version. A lot of lessons there such as the mercantile stance of the Carthaginian oligarchy that cost them the 1st Punic War, and arguably the 2nd. Not unlike the oligarchy in the USA that chases the dollar and has gutted our manufacturing and middle class over the last 30-years.
    And how dong the right thing, such as Hannibal did after the 2nd Punic War as a shophet by sticking up for the little guy against the tax dodging and embezzling oligarchs earns you a well deserved exile, if you’re prescient enough to plan for one.
    Did you know at the time, ~2006, when you adopted his moniker, that you would, at least partly, share his fate?

    Kind Regards,
    -Rick

  15. No I did not know it. I chose it for his being the little guy who took on an opponent who was 10-0.

  16. What else don’t we now know?

    Perhaps you will have his renown, for setting in motion

    What else will time reveal?

    Perhaps, though you don’t want it, you will have his renown, for planting the tree whose shade you won’t know and setting in motion what was impossible in the last 6000 years.

  17. It all sounds like a tempest in a teapot.

    I guess this is what rich fvcks do to pass the time; it’s all just a game to make you feel important in this universe.

    Meanwhile, the rest of us are busy building families and the infrastructure of our world.

    Have a blast Patrick. YOLO.

  18. Meanwhile, the Dept. of Justice is facing a bit of an insurrection as AG Barr tries to replace US Atty. Berman (Southern District of NY), and Berman announces he is refusing to leave office. Is this a blunder by Barr while trying to rein in biased prosecutors, or did Barr anticipate and prepare for this possibility? (President Trump has the legal authority to “fire” and remove Berman, but it has not yet been announced that way). Barr tried to give Berman a soft dignified landing but Berman refused to take that path. According to this excellent overview at CTH, it seems that much is aligned for Barr/Durham to begin making moves, indictments, etc. after July 3…. but is Barr really in control, or will the Deep State hacks succeed in their uprising???

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/06/20/attorney-general-bill-barr-removes-sdny-attorney-geoffrey-berman/

  19. Interview with AG Barr indicates that without Grand Juries (due to Covid-19 pandemic) much has been pushed toward end of summer. Will Barr, Durham, et al. proceed with indictments as the 2020 election approaches??? There is legitimate reason (from all political perspectives) to avoid major DOJ actions as an election approaches (both perception and reality of someone trying to influence election rises. Sure, the whole “Russiagate” b.s. is massive political/electoral influence by the Democrats and the media, but to roll out a bunch of indictments in the weeks before an election would still “look” bad (and will be “spun” badly no matter how substantive and important the realities of individual cases). Risk increases that everything will get put off indefinitely, to maybe never….

  21. Peter Strzok strikes again!

    Will Judge Sullivan continue to push and support Deep State machinations even now?

    BREAKING: no details revealed yet, but this sounds huge……. “highly exculpatory” notes of FBI Agent Peter Strzok regarding the Michael Flynn case:

    https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/breaking-doj-reveals-discovery-new-strzok-notes-flynn

    “A source directly familiar with the discovery of the document told Just the News they include one paragraph of notes believed to be taken around Jan. 4, 2017, the date Strzok relayed a request from FBI leadership to the lead agent in the Flynn case asking him not to shut down the investigation as had been planned. The notes are “highly exculpatory,” the source said, declining to describe them more fully because they are under seal.”

  22. Wellll…. Roger Stone is supposed to be reporting to prison in a few days (June 30, I believe) unless there is a delay (possibly Covid-19 related given his advanced age vulnerability) or …. who knows…. a presidential pardon.

    Meanwhile, here is a good summary of some key points made by AG Wm. Barr recently…. somewhat encouraging that there are serious investigations ongoing, but many delays, Deep State resistance, plus lack of public info makes it difficult for onlookers to be fully confident about thorough investigations and prosecutions. We don’t know what Durham et al. are really doing but it is only speculation at this point to believe there will be a ton of prosecutions (certainly nothing remotely like the farcical 100,000+ “secret indictments” that the Qanon idiots claim have already existed for 2+ years). Certainly there will not be numerous prominent civilians shipped off to Gitmo for military tribunals, another of the farcical Qanon fantasies….

    https://twitter.com/JohnWHuber/status/1275804598582812672

    Strzok notes out 🔥🔥🔥

    —Obama, Biden, Yates, Rice, Comey all discussed Flynn/Kislyak calls: “unusual times”

    —Comey admitted they “appear legit”

    —OBAMA ordered: “make sure you look at things” with “the right people”

    —BIDEN appears to be one to raise “Logan Act v[iolation]?”

  24. Patrick,

    We miss you. Thank you for trying to do the right thing. Hopefully you can return to America soon.

    Thoughts and Prayers

  25. The rights of the individual have never been given to them.
    They have been had fought for.
    Think today of all who have died, for freedom.
    Give me liberty or give me death is not just a famous quote.
    It is why freedom exists.

    1. I keep thinking about how for ages all that fighting including all that war under the disguise of “individual freedoms” for the masses; continues to synergize the global population into indentured servitude by tacit agreement born through absolute ignorance but not by accident, and for the exclusive benefit of the additionally silent ruling class(one percent) no longer necessarily responsible to feed, clothe, house or tend to their medical needs during this process of reverting citizens to their earlier historical roots of bondage.

      The bill for these services in the modern era, of course, is delivered through a nation’s liability or debt account, directly attributable to all of its indentured slaves whether they like it or not, or until the mathematical impossibilities of ever paying it back becomes fait accompli in order that a collapse and reset must take place assuming that nation is not ransacked by a competing nation instead.

      This COVID-19 development is the best ruse of them all for proving what an obedient bunch of slaves we truly are while experiencing “security personnel” in stores following people around to ensure their MASKS are always on lest they can be expected to be ejected from that place of business at least inside of CommyCalifornia.

      What a waste of human resources seeking absolute compliance so that added expenses make prices to end users even more burdensome.

      And, the Y generation in America from all I have gleaned is ALL IN, and fully brainwashed unwilling to sacrifice life or limb to address the mass scale scams continually being levied against individual rights and freedoms to be cherished otherwise. In their favor, they are too smart to believe they might ever tip the scale of injustice against their individual rights, therefore; they play along in this game of one nation IN DEBT FOR ALL, better to live than die since death continues to contain too many unknowns.

      God only knows how weak and debilitated the Z generation, and newest Alpha generation they are producing has become. With sub par education courtesy of COVID-19, Alpha is in deep trouble.

      Yes, the Mandarin curse is ringing loud and clear here in America today: “May you live in interesting times.”

  26. Sundance at CTH alludes to a major issue and research project which he seems to imply is going to “hit the fan” in the public eye, one way or another, within a few weeks. It is related to Durham’s investigations. He does not give any specifics yet, but he has been a very thorough researcher for years, and when he says this kind of thing I take it as plausible if still vague, i.e., I will watch CTH more closely in coming weeks to see if some big issue(s) should begin to explode there:

    “How does the common man retain liberty within a system whose existence is contingent upon a foundation of pretense. While knowing the cornerstone of that system is dependent on ignoring the truth he/she carries?”

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/06/act-or-be-acted-upon/

    1. hmmm…. now Sundance gets a bit more specific, points Senator Grassley toward examining the corruption and cover-ups related to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI)… of course the DOJ handling of the Wolf case stinks to high heaven, and there is so much more to the cesspool that is SSCI. Will Grassley really take on his fellow Senators? In any case, this tweet by Sundance is the tip of the iceberg for exposing wanton misdeeds by past DOJ, FBI, and SSCI officials….

  27. Mr. Byrne,

    You should listen to Buffett. Isn’t that why you call him your Rabbi? If you wait until after the election and the Democrats win, your story will be lost to history like it never happened. If you don’t wait, hopefully your full story would create enough public pressure that someone is actually held accountable.

    PS. I’d also really like to work on tZero. I’m a computer engineer in the finance industry looking for a new job.

  28. I figure out since you sold out THE stock is ripping I guess the street cannot deliver the special dividend and are all trapped To bad you lost what 200M

    1. Well I suppose that depends on what happens regarding the company I used that capital to fund.

  29. Hi Patrick, I hope you are doing OK in these crazy times. I understand that you are laying low and I don’t know if you are following hints and events related to FISA, FBI, Strzoz, etc or not… all I would say is that Sundance says some stuff is about to come to a head, and if you have any reason(s) to say anything new, even privately (say perhaps you have contacts in DC you could spur to action, now may be a good time to add to the pressure for change in DC. The SSIC scandals, the FBI and DOJ scandals, FISA scandals, etc. there is so much garbage that needs to be exposed fully and cleansed.

    Roger Stone has to report to prison in a few days. He is elderly and in ill health, but so far he does not seem to be catching any break from the judge or the Bureau of Prisons… even as many prisoners have been released to reduce their Covid-19 risks. Will President Trump pardon Stone in the next few days? I have no idea, but the personal political cost might be high if he were to do so, especially during a presidential campaign.

    YET, the evidence is clear (ala General Flynn’s case) that the entire investigation was deeply corrupt and Stone’s statements were not “material” to any genuine probably cause investigation.

    In case you haven’t followed CTH, these recent posts describe some of what Sundance says is simmering beneath the surface. If you have anyone to contact who could influence/pressure for better investigations and public results, now might be the time to do it:

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/07/why-did-the-doj-declassify-and-release-the-fisa-application-on-july-21-2018/

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/07/charging-the-rampart/

  30. *probable cause

    The stuff on the SSIC and also Special Counsel bias and corruption continues to be simply appalling. Are Barr and Durham et al. on the verge of getting it cleaned up??? Or will most stuff just be pushed further down the road into 2021???

    If major events do not occur in the next few weeks there will be an increasing probability that many/most perps will never be held to account. If nothing is happening by August, and then if the Democrats win in Nov., the prospects for genuine accountability may vanish.

  31. The entire “Russiagate” hoax continues to be exposed. Some hugely important document revelations today, including the 59 page FBI field office report on interviews with Steele’s “Primary Sub-Source”… which reveals that the bogus Steele “dossier” was largely based upon layers of hearsay piled upon hearsay from a “PSS” who in Jan. 2017 disavowed Steele and FBI’s reliance upon the fake shabby dossier. Much of it was merely loose “bar talk” from people in no position to know… yet the FBI and “Intelligence Community Assessment” turned this b.s. into the multi-year Mueller/Weissman sham and much more.

    Then our old pal Peter Strzok appears again…. this time actually de-bunking a lot of his fellow coup plotters via internal docs:

    https://saraacarter.com/new-docs-reveal-fbi-agents-didnt-believe-russia-trump-conspiracy-when-will-ag-barr-deliver-justice-for-the-nation/

  32. BREAKING: It appears that the “PSS” (Primary Sub-Source) so central to the Steele “dossier” has been identified, and has strong connection to….. FIONA HILL. The person is a very minor figure with zero first-hand (or even 2nd-hand) knowledge of anything in the so-called “dossier”… yet, Steele & company’s shabby exaggerations and falsifications from the trivial “bar talk” of PSS has been allowed to turn our country upside down for 3 1/2 years.

    https://ifoundthepss.blogspot.com/2020/07/background.html

    “On July 17, 2020 the Senate Judiciary Committee released a 59 page summary of the FBI interview with the Primary Sub Source for the Steele Dossier. This interview took place in January 2017. The people present in this interview include Peter Sztrok and David Laufman. Keep this in mind as I reveal the identity of this person. They knew in January 2017 exactly who this person was and this person’s qualifications for accusing the President of the United States of conspiring with a foreign power. This dossier was also a key component of the Intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election.”

  33. “A gunman wearing a FedEx driver’s uniform came to the home of a federal judge connected to high-profile cases, one involving Jeffery Epstein, killing her son and leaving her husband in critical condition after they answered the door to the assailant, according to news reports and law enforcement officials.” https://saraacarter.com/man-dressed-in-fed-ex-uniform-kills-son-of-new-jersey-federal-judge-leaves-husband-in-critical-condition/

    What will it take for We The People to finally unite behind basic principles like truth,freedom,goodwill,integrity,The Non-Aggression Principle and The Golden Rule rather than corrupt politicians and political parties?

    Why won’t people at least do something simple and immediate like boycotting big tech/media/finance companies and ANY company that gives money to politicians or pays them for speeches.

    Wishing peace to the ALL the innocent victims and families of such horrific acts of violence.

    God help us all.

  34. Excellent overview of just how farcical the situation was in Feb. 2017 as NY Times published numerous fictions purporting to be from investigative insiders. Even Peter Strzok, no friend to the Trump team, thoroughly trashed the NY Times false reporting. Yet, this garbage became the basis for the Mueller nonsense and 3+ years of Russiagate hoax still ongoing:

    https://www.redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2020/07/20/notes-by-peter-strzok-regarding-new-york-times-article-in-feb-2017-implicates-comey-and-mccabe-in-conspiracy/

  35. re: your statement, “I believe that when I do speak, what I have to say will make it obvious (if it is not obvious by then) that the entire thing was pure political espionage, a stitch-up from the start….”

    Patrick, I hope you are well, or as well as any of us may be in this crazy time. I want to suggest that you consider speaking out now or in the next few weeks. Obviously, I cannot properly weigh your legitimate considerations of your own personal risks or concerns about the evidence, investigations, and trying to let Durham/Barr et al. complete their work.

    However, whatever Durham & co. are doing is presumably very far along and evidence (such as documents released publicly for the Flynn case, Strzok/FBI malfeasance, etc.) is already being publicly released.

    What is totally missing for most of the public, however, is the kind of context which YOU can provide. The major news media is still stalling, lying, obfuscating, and mostly ignoring all of the real evidence and issues.

    Clearly no one else can walk in your shoes or know what all the risks are etc. I just think that now or in the next few weeks would be an optimal time for a great CITIZEN such as you are to make a statement, have a major impact (one hopes), and get vital info out there before it is too late to be considered by the public. As we get close to Nov. 3 everything that becomes public will be more likely to be seen only through a lens of electioneering pro and con on Trump vs. Biden, etc. Obviously we are already far into that context. Still, I think that if you make your statement and information available sooner than later, you will be better positioned to say that you are solely seeking the public good and not trying to influence partisan politics.

    Naturally, there will be haters if you say anything, but I do encourage you to speak your mind and your experiences.

    Sincerely and with greatest respect,

    A Fellow American Citizen

    1. p.s. While I don’t agree with your “Rabbi” on everything, on this point he is exactly right. You would be doing the public and our nation a tremendous good service if you should follow your Rabbi’s advice and speak out fully at this time.

      1. Not if the feds are going to do it soon. If I do it, it may start a war. If they do it, it may work.

        1. OK, thanks for responses, and some of us will breathe a couple of sighs of relief that you think the feds may still be on track….. I’m just never sure what to believe these days but I trust your judgment far far more than any of the typical commentators out there….

  36. FBI with notorious Peter Strzok as lead investigator KNEW in Jan./Feb. 2017 that “Steele dossier” was an utter crock of feces. Yet, they renewed massively intrusive FISA warrant on Carter Page (which enabled surveillance of virtually all Trump associates including POTUS himself due to the “two hop” rule) two more times and told the public/Congress (via Comey and McCabe) that the investigation was legitimate/important. In reality, it was all massive political surveillance against Trump and Republicans.

    “The FBI’s Dossier Deceit”
    “New evidence that the bureau knew the Russia info was phony in 2017.”

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-fbis-dossier-deceit-11595027626

    “Friday’s disclosure also includes a February 2017 document in which leading FBI investigator Peter Strzokacknowledges the dossier is a bust, and that the FBI still had no evidence of any wrongdoing. The New York Times on Feb. 14, 2017 published a story with this headline: “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.””

    “Mr. Strzok wrote an internal FBI analysis highlighting the story’s numerous inaccuracies, explaining “we are unaware of ANY Trump advisors engaging in conversations with Russian intelligence officials.” He also acknowledges: “Recent interviews” reveal “Steele may not be in a position to judge the reliability of his subsource network.””

  37. Sara Carter is on fire tonight !!

    Sara A. Carter
    @SaraCarterDC
    Obama and Biden knew everything… fast typing. I said during the Sean’s show that there is no way Strzok, Pientka, Clinesmith or any agent involved would do what they did without the direction of senior management including McCabe and Comey. Biden, Obama, Brennan, Clapper knew

    @SaraCarterDC

    .@realDonaldTrump says what happened to him by the Obama FBI was treason and should never happen again! Obama and Biden knee everything and it should never happen again. POTUS also said there were many meetings – not just the Jan. 5, 2017. He said he would consider pardons!!

    @adamhousley

    Durham and Barr do not want this investigation to be used for political points, which is the way it should be. There are major rumors that there are already indictments. There are some indictments in the pipeline also for sure. The scope of this investigation is huge. Massive.

  40. Distinguished constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley is one of the few media commentators to understand (or be willing to ADMIT) what is at stake:

    “The Washington press corps seems engaged in a collective demonstration of the legal concept of willful blindness, or deliberately ignoring facts, following the release of yet another declassified document that directly refutes past statements about the Russia collusion investigation. The document shows the FBI used a security briefing of then-candidate Donald Trump and top aides to gather possible evidence for Crossfire Hurricane, its code name for the Russia investigation.”

    “What is astonishing is that the media has steadfastly refused to see what should be one of the biggest stories in decades: an administration’s targeting of an opposing party’s presidential campaign based on false and possibly criminally falsified evidence.”

    https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/509002-more-willful-blindness-by-the-media-on-spying-by-obama-administration

    1. Among the huge problems with “Pizzagate” and all the related subsequent “Q” stuff is that there is such a careless melange of true, false, fictional, speculative, unknown, etc. The so-called “researchers” who push all this kind of stuff make so many elementary errors and mix in so much obvious garbage with whatever may be genuine, that it tends to (1) turn off all more serious, knowledgeable people, and (2) discredit the whole enterprise before it gets very far. Yes, there are plenty of pedophiles who should be exposed and prosecuted, and yes too many law enforcement and govt officials have done little or even been complicit at times, BUT making wild, uninformed, unsubstantiated accusations about vast worldwide plots does not tend to help credibility or achieve political and legal success.

      1. The video I posted is the most well presented one I have seen yet.If anyone can watch that entire video and not think it merits an investigation,then I don’t know what does.

  41. Attorney General William Barr is due to testify before the House Judiciary Committee this week (Tuesday, July 28).

    It sure is a good week to try to ratchet up the pressure on the various Deep State miscreants, particularly since Nadler and the Democrats are sure to give Barr a really hard time.

    hint, hint….

    They will try to pretend that Barr and Durham are running wild on “witch hunts” etc. The lying Democrat narratives need to be countered as strongly as possible….. whether in public or in private, all concerned citizens should try to turn up the pressure this week because the Democrats will surely do all they can to try to distract, delay, or discredit Barr.

    hint, hint….. ;^)

  42. Tuesday, July 28, 2020

    Attorney General William Barr will testify before the House Judiciary Committee today.

    His opening remarks have been pre-released and he doesn’t pull punches, referring immediately to “the bogus ‘Russiagate’ scandal’ — we can expect some fireworks with Nadler and other Democrats.

    AG Barr:

    “Ever since I made it clear that I was going to do everything I could to get to the bottom of the grave abuses involved in the bogus “Russiagate” scandal, many of the Democrats on this Committee have attempted to discredit me by conjuring up a narrative that I am simply the President’s factotum who disposes of criminal cases according to his instructions. Judging from the letter inviting me to this hearing, that appears to be your agenda today. So let me turn to that first.”

  44. Well the coming months will not be boring…. now Peter Strzok is due to release a book (ghost-written with DNC funds???) on September 8.

    He is all in on “muh Russia” conspiracies, apparently….. Trump is “under the sway” of Putin, even though on MAGA, US defense build-up, energy policy, and missile defense Trump stands for policies that Putin hates and views as a great threat to Russia…. but never let facts get in the way of deranged Democrat conspiracy theories…..

    AP: “Ex-FBI agent Strzok due out with book about Trump, Russia”

    https://apnews.com/a63cca581185eb6ae82468f173bd0e4e

    “At a fiery, daylong congressional hearing in July 2018, Strzok insisted that he never allowed personal viewpoints to influence his work, though he did acknowledge being dismayed by Trump’s behavior during the campaign.”

    “The text messages featured prominently in the inspector general investigations into the Clinton and Russia probes, but the watchdog office said it did not find evidence in either case that the actions that Strzok and other FBI officials took were motivated by political bias.”

  45. Patrick!

    You must be pleased at how the wheel has turned. OSTK has swung the pendulum to the other side. Many like to think it’s because you left, but know, had you stayed, the business results would have been as good or better. IMHO, what we saw today was your decision in the dearth of 2006 to focus on the fundamentals, and to vision in 2014 the blockchain revolution, which is soon to bear fruit, though it got short Schmidt in the call today.

    I hung in there, since 2004, and on paper looking pretty.

    You’re one of a kind and a Class act. May the wind be at your back ..

  46. FBI b.s. alert!!

    It has been crucial for the Comey/McCabe/Strzok/Page cabal to pretend that investigations of “Crossfire Hurricane” only began with an appropriate investigative “predicate” at the end of July 2016 (even that alleged “predicate” related to George Papadopoulos was faked and manipulated but anyway…).

    However, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has testified that months earlier, in spring of 2016, Comey/McCabe were telling her of their investigative interest in Carter Page as soon as he joined the foreign policy advisory team of the Trump campaign (Carter Page was a CIA asset assisting in investigations of Russian operatives).

    Yet another of many indications that FBI/MSM hacks lie when they pretend that FBI only began operating investigations of Trump campaign associates at end of July 2016!

    Will Durham et al. reveal all soon?

    https://twitter.com/MonsieurAmerica/status/1288849059193565189/photo/1

  47. Important article by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on what has been revealed so far about FBI and Obama admin. malfeasance:

    “…But this much we know: In the stretch run of the 2016 campaign, President Obama authorized his administration’s investigative agencies to monitor his party’s opponent in the presidential election, on the pretext that Donald Trump was a clandestine agent of Russia. Realizing this was a gravely serious allegation for which there was laughably insufficient predication, administration officials kept Trump’s name off the investigative files. That way, they could deny that they were doing what they did. Then they did it . . . and denied it.”

Patrick, some very interesting articles over at CTH lately, particularly this statement that if official actions are not taking place by mid-August (i.e., serious indictments within two weeks from now), then CTH has (they say) a ton of sensitive info to release to the public about the FBI/intel abuses, the perps, evidence for investigations, etc. Just something to be aware of in case you want to add anything…… CTH says they have been waiting to let official investigations take their course, but mid-August is “go time”…..

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/08/03/status-update-doj-fbi-investigative-research-on-the-road/

  49. One of the more intriguing passages from the last CTH article, which promises that something big will go down by mid-August, either from official action or from CTH releases:

    “If there is nothing that comes out of the DOJ and FBI by mid-August, CTH will do the very best possible to launch on “phase-2” which will include us exposing the names of the investigators/prosecutors and what they are specifically known to be doing. While that’s not the purpose, there has to be a point at which ‘We the People’ get to say enough is enough… we are shifting from prudent patience to full sunlight regardless of the damage it does to the ongoing investigation(s).”

    “Because that’s a pretty serious thing to do; there is an assembly of very smart people coming together right before that date, and these issues will be debated. I doubt anyone could convince me not to go full combat; but I’m willing to listen up to the very last second of my own self-imposed deadline for justice.”

    “Phase-2 was originally going be a full expose in a manner of platforms on a key aspect that underpins the historic DOJ/FBI and Mueller Special Counsel operation. That goal is still primary; however, it will also include telling as many people as possible whose doors need to be knocked upon to ask the questions about inaction. Based on the feedback when we knocked the mystery doors it is likely the investigators (and others) will go bananas if their role is made public.”

    Once people absorb the severity of the dual systems of justice; and once a very specific issue is thoroughly understood; I am very hopeful a national response will be triggered.”

  50. One of the more intriguing passages from the last CTH article, which promises that something big will go down by mid-August, either from official action or from CTH releases (CTH has proved to be vastly more credible than the “Qanon” stuff, imho):

  51. With known abuses of the NSA databases coming into the spotlight of investigators (unmasking, illegal searches, etc.), there may also turn out to be a lot of “insider trading” based upon confidential info gleaned from emails and phone messages of corporate officers, etc. [Patrick, could insider trading be a big part of the picture in the “billion dollar bribe” they were offering you, where “friends” of the NSA/FBI abusers could trade on all kinds of non-public info before deals are announced???]

  54. Sara Carter is feeling very impatient !! (aren’t we all by now)

    The next few weeks are absolutely crucial…. if Durham, Barr, & co. don’t go public with everything soon….. aaaghh…. well already Andrew Weissman is saying (in NY Times) that it is too close to the election for any indictments, blah blah….. that’s not true, but it does give them a talking point against Barr.

    Russia Hoax: Are We All Being Played? Put Up or Shut Up.

    Sara A. Carter, August 6, 2020

    https://saraacarter.com/russia-hoax-are-we-all-being-played-put-up-or-shut-up/

    “I think Barr and Durham need to move fast if they are ever going to do anything and if they are going to prove me wrong. We know now that laws were broken and our Constitution was torched by these rogue government officials.”

    “We shouldn’t give the swamp the time-of-day to accuse the Trump administration of playing politics or interfering with this election. If the DOJ has evidence and is ready to indict they need to do it now.”

    “If our Justice Department officials haven’t done their job to expose the corruption, clean out our institutions and hold people accountable then it will be a tragedy for our nation and the American people. I’m frankly tired of the back and forth. I’m tired of being toyed with and lied to. I believe they should either put up or shut up.”

  55. I just want to take a moment to thank you Patrick.In March my IRA account was just about completely destroyed but I still believed in you and your former company and did not sell my Overstock investments.I not only made my money back but now have a nice profit.Thank You sir and I hope you are doing well.Cheers!

  56. Echo TruthFreedomPeace. I also hung in there, knowing at the time that it looks like I can never retire.

    I knew you built something Great! And fell on your sword by leaving to put others first- as is your habit.

    We are resting in the shade of a tree that you planted. Be well, Patrick, you’re one of a kind.

  57. Patrick, don’t know if you have seen much on the federal raids in Cleveland or recent POTUS Trump statements and activity, but there is some tantalizing info in this article (Gateway Pundit sometimes hypes stuff beyond available evidence, but this seems pretty huge to me):

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/rumors-swirling-president-trumps-recent-actions-indicate-something-huge-drop/

    Countdown to mid-August, end of August, and then election day underway….. a lot of big stuff may be happening!

  58. whooaaa Patrick, have you seen what Steven Schrage has to say about Russiagate, Spygate, etc????

    Clearly you are not the only one to be sucked into viewing nefarious FBI/DeepState activities from too close….. this is an amazing article and he says there is more to come. He says he has told Durham he could not remain silent any longer.

    1. 100% correct.

      Does that seem strange? Because it seems odd to me.

      Paul, do I know you from somewhere?

      1. No, we’ve never met except here in cyberspace. I found your articles fascinating and important, and your life story personally compelling (I am also a cancer survivor although not from quite such extremes as you’ve gone through (I was at death’s door for a few weeks but most of my suffering was within a fairly compressed period of a year).

        Sorry if I post too much (??) my online life is almost all I have during the pandemic (which may be exaggerated but I have severe “co-morbidities” so I’ve had to stay totally isolated from people for six months now.

        Yes, I found it appalling that the media managed to ignore the Clinesmith case. Most editors and reporters are unbelievably biased in what they choose to “report” or not report, and how they discuss it.

          1. well thank you, I appreciate the good wishes!! Be well….

            Let’s hope more truth and justice will finally emerge….

        1. Just piling on here, Paul Cohen. I am appreciating all your reporting here, too. Thanks.

          As an original skeptic of the Russia collusion story, (neither HRC nor Trump supporter) I have read the revelations as they appear. But failed to take notes to aid my spotty memory. You have them all nicely lined up here – a great resource.

          Sadly, general psychology seems to consider that such reports only become valid when they are magnified in the mainstream discussion. So far, that is not happening.

          Amazing that so few notice the limiting selection bias of major news outlets now, which simply omit most of the world, when they could be providing to the public a view of a wider and complex world, isn’t it?

          Of course, there is much psychic denial, which I do understand. To acknowledge the possibility of an active, rogue, deep state is to question the foundations of our social assumptions and our individual agency.

          Maybe we readers of mysteries and spy novels are more willing to entertain such possibilities. But is there cause for concern about the robustness of the American character, once a land of risk takers and new possibilities? Has courage been eroded away by a slow, steady drip in the news of fearsome boogeymen (Manson, religious cults, Iran, mass shooters, militias, terrorists, anthrax, Iraq, Syria, IS terrorists, Russia, covid, police) against which citizens are powerless but for a more superpowered government?

          And thanks to Patrick B for providing this space, for sharing his experience and insight, and for his independent spirit as a champion of just values and institutional integrity.

          1. Oops! “just values” in last pp. Not intended to signal SJW. Language becomes quicksand. Omit.
            Replace with “champion for enlightened values and institutional integrity against killers, cheats, liars, plotters and fools, who undermine the better spirits of community.”

    More coming next week. Clinesmith is just the beginning. Lowest big name. Despite what you hear, what came out today is a big deal. He isn’t a small name. Crosses party lines. I told you it was coming.

  62. The time to beat a dead horse is BEFORE all that is left is a skeleton.
    The meat is what the public NEEDS to see.
    It shows how the horse was killed.
    Leads us to the guilty party.

  63. From almost exactly one year ago… are we still hopeful? I always have “hope” but I can’t say I’m too optimistic….. Clinesmith got off on the flimsiest possible charge…. is he “cooperating” with info that will really bring down the cabal, or is his plea just a way to wind down the cases ala James Wolfe (who got off on such a light plea when he had been guilty of much more)???

    Overstock CEO Turned Over Docs To DOJ ‘on FBI’s Russian and Hillary Clinton Probes’
    Sara Carter

    Aug 12, 2019

    https://saraacarter.com/overstock-ceo-turned-over-docs-to-doj-on-fbis-russian-and-hillary-clinton-probes/

    “This is going to become the greatest political scandal in US history,” [Byrne] said. “If we survive it, and if Rule of Law returns to America, it will be due to one man: Bill Barr.”

    ….

    “I ended up in the center of the Russian and the Clinton investigations,” said Byrne. “I have all the answers. I have been sitting on them waiting for America to get there. Last summer I figured out… what they all are is all about political espionage. It had nothing to do with law enforcement, it was all political espionage. Here’s the bottom line. There is a deep state like a submarine lurking just beneath the waves of the periscope depth watching our shipping lanes. And a nuclear ice breaker called the USS Bill Barr has snuck up on them and is about to ram midship.”

    “That’s about to happen and I think we’re about to see the biggest scandal in American history as a result. But it was all political. Everything you think you know about Russia and Clinton investigations is a lie,” Byrne told Atman. “It’s all a cover-up. It was all political espionage.”

    Connecticut attorney John Durham, who has been appointed by Justice Department investigator Attorney General William Barr is probing the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Russia probe, and according to several sources is investigating the full extent of Byrne’s claims and the documentation he provided in April.

  64. …….
    is this shit or true?

    On Aug. 18, the Senate Intelligence Committee released volume five of its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The new version found that former CEO of Overstock.com and noted crypto advocate Patrick Byrne was a patsy to plans by Maria Butina, served time for espionage on behalf of Russia.
    The romance between Butina and Byrne was the reason the latter gave upon his departure from Overstock last year. Always an eccentric character, Byrne’s account of the relationship said that he was working with U.S. intelligence.
    Per one email from Paul Erickson quoted in the report, Byrne was a lifelong bachelor who had become fascinated with Butina and indeed wanted her to have a child with him:
    “Since meeting Maria, he has found ever more creative ways to pitch a standing $1 million offer to her ‘to have a baby with him.’ He is utterly enamored of her imagined gene stock and believes that a baby would cement not only his familial line but also relations between our two nations.”
    The new report delves into already known details about Byrne and Butina meeting at a libertarian conference, and it clarifies that Bitcoin (BTC) was the unifying factor:
    “Butina did not convey her interest in Byrne at FreedomFest to the Committee, noting that ‘someone was talking about Bitcoin, and there were some fresh ideas that I wanted to discover,’ but not mentioning Byrne.”

    However, it seems Byrne was not a primary target. The report reads: “The Committee assesses that both Erickson and Butina viewed Byrne, at least initially, as a vector to yet another Republican presidential candidate, Senator Rand Paul.”
    The report also continues longstanding claims that Russian intelligence used cryptocurrency to fund phishing sites and VPNs as part of its interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
    Update: An earlier version of this article said that Maria Butina was currently serving time. She was, in fact, released from prison in October and deported to Russia.

    Lindsey with some interesting news.

    First, he released a Hillary defensive briefing showing Hillary was given a chance to clean up foreign actors infiltrating her campaign—Trump wasn’t.

    Second, Priestap refused to be interviewed and will be subpoenaed.

    ==================================================================

    The documents plainly show the agents wanted a FISA in March 2015 ASAP. Seventh Floor slow walked it until they gave her a defensive briefing in October- seven months later.

    ==================================================================

    They wanted a Fisa on the non US person going back to 2014, very irritated and confused as to why 7th floor was sitting on it, even emailed Director Comey about the concerns.

    =================================================================

    Speculative connecting the dots- Recall Patrick Byrne claiming he’s aware of someone in the FBI using blackmail against Hillary. Does this relate?

    1. Hmmm… the Youtube account which posted the video (linked in tweet above) was just terminated while I was writing this comment!! I just watched the vid and after posting the comment I tried to go back and re-watch the vid, and I get messages saying simply that the account was terminated. I’ve seen individual vids taken down but first time I’ve seen an account terminated like that.

  70. We are now into Labor Day Weekend…. < 60 days until the election…. it is difficult to believe any great things will happen on the justice front anytime soon….. I have tried to keep hope alive but d— it is difficult to think the many Spygate/Russiagate miscreants are going to face real justice.

    p.s. Q/Qanon is such lunatic fantasy b.s., as was obvious from the start. What's true in the Q-stream is not unique to or originating from the hoax Q-team (just links and info scooped up around the internet). What is unique to the Q-stream is a mix of speculation, fantasy, guesswork, wishful thinking, and/or hallucination.

    Another way to put it: what's new with Q is not true, and what's true in Q is not new.

    1. I don’t know what to make of “Q” exactly but I could only guess that that movement is comprised of both honest,well meaning folks along with some devious ones which could be said of any movement or political group.

      To me,the bottom line is what are We The People who value basic principles like truth/freedom/goodwill/integrity/Non Aggression principle/Golden Rule going to do about all the corruption in government and big tech/media/pharma/finance?The best way I can think of to counter that is for people to unite behind these principles and become an economic force.Money talks and it could be used to say GOOD things in contrast to all the bad things it is also used for.

      I wrote up an Action Plan that I gave my word I would not post on this site anymore because I posted it so many times before.If anyone is interested in seeing it here is a link to my MINDS page. This is the best idea I can think of to make positive change in a peaceful,productive manner.

    1. well, yeah, this is the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee… finally doing something about 3 years too late. Even if the investigation is pursued vigorously it will be a long time before the public learns of results. This is separate from the DOJ investigations by Durham and others. If Durham doesn’t start rolling out indictments any day now then the risks increase that everything will get pushed off again.

      Adam Housley is still adamant that Durham et al. are the real deal and have major results/indictments imminent….. I don’t know what to believe but Housley has seemed to be well connected with DOJ in the past.

  71. “Brace for impact” indeed…. lots of juicy stuff pouring forth the past couple of days… I think the drip drip of evidence has a better chance of breaking through than if it were all dumped on the public at once…. of course the lying Democrat Media Complex is trying to ignore everything and spin what it can’t ignore…..

    The “Steele Dossier” is an obvious forgery.

    No one is buying the “We were duped” excuse by the FBI Crossfire team

    Steele was not paid to investigate

    Steele was paid to place into government systems (FBI, DOJ, State) false information designed to hurt Trump/benefit Hillary

  74. Patrick: the Steve Cohen who is on the verge of buying the NY Mets, isn’t he the same POS from insider trading scandals, naked short selling, SAC Capital, etc.??

    Doesn’t seem so good for Major League Baseball or America to have such a person owning the Mets…. fortunately I don’t really care about the Mets, but I do like baseball.

    (definitely no relation to me, ha ha, my “Paul Cohen” is just an online pseudonym I picked semi-random, and I didn’t even know who Steve Cohen is until I started reading this splendid DeepCapture.com website last year)

    https://www.foxbusiness.com/sports/mets-sold-steve-cohen-agreement

  75. Patrick,
    Many interesting details are coming out about Strzok, McCabe, and FBI political corruption…. don’t know if you are following these days or not. A powerful argument based upon details and timing (“Crossfire Razor” was not opened until 6 days after the Crossfire Hurricane cases on Carter Page, Papa, and Manafort had been opened) that the “insurance policy” discussed by Strzok and Page was specifically to have a case open against Flynn (which they did not pursue pre-election) just in case Trump should win…. remember that Strzok and Lisa were discussing whether to have an “insurance policy” when it was already settled that they would be running Crossfire Hurricane against Carter Page, Papadopoulos, and Manafort….. military hero General Mike Flynn was targeted not in order to investigate him pre-November 3, 2016 (which they essentially did not do except for sitting in on his initial counterintel briefing in August), but in order to have an “open” case file in case Trump won. Then they would have major investigative tools and resources instantly available against the incoming Trump administration…..

    “The opening of an investigation of General Flynn — “Crossfire Razor” — was the “insurance policy” in the event Donald Trump was elected. Page, Papadolopous, and Manafort were not going to be in the Trump Administration — all had left the campaign by the fall of 2016, so they would not have access to classified information or otherwise be helpful to the Russians. But Comey, McCabe, Strzok, and Page knew Flynn would be in the Administration. Having Crossfire Razor open BEFORE the election meant the FBI could continue investigating the Trump Administration after candidate Trump became President-Elect Trump, and then after the inauguration as well, without having to say they only opened the investigation after Trump’s victory.”

    https://www.redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2020/09/28/remember-the-strzok-page-insurance-policy-exchange-flynn-investigation-case-agent-adds-insight/

  76. I recall Patrick saying something along these lines about Russia’s activities, that mainly they were trying to sow discord and conflict among Americans, causing problems regardless of which candidate might win in 2016. To the extent that may be true, the MSM and Democrats have enabled Putin to “succeed” wildly beyond expectations, since the entire past four years have been convulsed (in the US) with accusations and counter-accusations, investigations and political attacks…. I have never found it plausible that Putin would prefer Trump to Hillary, since many aspects of “Make America Great Again” are much more problematic for Russia than anything Hillary would ever have done (Trump policies on energy, military build-up, economic might before and after the pandemic, etc.). Sure, Putin might be concerned that a Hillary (or Biden) would be more pro-US-intervention in the Middle East or with NATO, but a Trump admin. stands for much more actual US strength even if for a somewhat more restrained policy in certain cases…..

    Anyway, this is really fascinating, especially if it turns out to be true that Brennan and Comey et al. biased the intel products to make the (false??) claim that Russia was only interested in helping Trump ……

    “An official familiar with the document said it will show the intelligence community “cherry-picked pebbles of evidence” to make the case Russia sought to help Trump win in 2016 when there was similar evidence to the contrary.”

    “Several prominent Russia experts, including the CIA’s former station chief in Moscow, have argued that the intelligence community assessment got it wrong and that Russia’s true intentions in 2016 was actually to sow chaos and discord in America without regard to which candidate won.”

  77. …….can we the people watch a debate where 2 adult men use the mind and knowledge to communicate without acting like grade school bullies resorting to name calling and condescending remarks?
    Personal attacks on each will play right into the media whores hand…..
    slinging shit (and opinions)AND MAKING UP SHIT is the media business…
    let us watch a battle of the minds.
    laugh- i can DREAM.

    1. Biden is an incoherent dementia patient that has to take drugs and use a communication device in his ear to know what to say lol

  78. Maybe this disgusting display by the former Twitter CEO will finally convince more people to cancel cable TV packages and boycott companies like Twitter,Facebook,Microsoft,Apple,Google,Netflix and Amazon which all pander to the DNC and their cronies.
    Hope more people will finally support their competitors like Overstock,Minds,Linux,Bitchute,LBRY etc.

  79. Patrick, don’t know when/if you will see this, but this was just posted in past 30 min. and sounds BIG….. if it ever gets traction…. Strzok/Comey ignoring another serious scandal and lying to Congress….. it’s all about who you know and who they favor/disfavor…. Adam Housley says more to come imminently, hope so!!

    @adamhousley

    Exclusive: early Jan 2017, a Retired SR state department official wrote a letter to the FBI as a whistleblower after he uncovered evidence he says showed classified info was being misused by the Clinton Foundation. Two weeks later after he got no response, he walked into the

    FBI office in DC to deliver the intelligence/info in person. This info/intelligence was completely ignored by James Comey & Peter Strzok. He also alleges he has proof of lying to Congress. He was not low level. You’ll see this story more in depth in other

    places in the next few days. Again it shows the pick and choose power play in DC that crosses party lines. You heard it here first tho.

  80. oh wow, I just now saw Patrick’s new article on Deep State corruption, Maria, sting operations, etc. Utterly mind blowing…. I’m not sure a spy novelist or screenwriter could come up with all of this….. can’t wait to see what happens next…. sickening as it all is, there must finally be JUSTICE.

  81. You are an interesting character, but you are also entirely ignorant of intelligence. I write at a blog you have probably seen link in here, it has a political flavor, but often talks about the surveillance network. So for a decade, I have been dealing with intel in my life, following me, harassing me, even listening in my house, which is a situation you can’t help but learn a lot from. It is being thrown into the deep end of the pool.

    You keep thinking there is truth, one truth, and you can see it, but more often than not, you can’t. Here, I will just ask one question in two parts. What if Roger Stone’s recollection is entirely correct? And so is your own? What would explain that?

    As I think about it, you may not figure it out, given you almost trusted McMaster, thinking him your friend, and you still don’t realize he was compromised, even with his father being murdered the moment he failed at his mission within the White House. Had you told McMaster what you knew, he would have reported it up (not to Trump, but to the conspiracy) and I suspect you’d have been dead of a heart attack within a day or two. He offered you that opportunity to unload because he was told to, and they wanted to know if you were going to talk. You didn’t, and they assumed you were safe. And you lived.

    Now to Stone. Somebody put the two of you together, possibly telling Roger they were your assistant, and you were desperate to meet him, and had engineered the whole thing. Maybe you had grilled somebody else on Russia, and they knew you couldn’t be paired up with Roger without trying to figure things out yourself, and they hoped Roger would slip up. Which of course means they were up on your conversation, just like they knew every moment of everything that went on with Maria, and the fact you were lying about being intimate. Ironic, being it was a Libertarian get together they were using to coup our government. Of course, dealing with intel,I can’t discount all of this is a headgame, and you really are as deep in the network as Roger thinks. But if not, I’ve given you an alternate hypothesis.

    You can edit this part out, if you don’t want any other site listed on your blog, or if your FBI handlers tell you to, but you need to stop by http://www.anonymousconservative.com/blog/surveillance , because unless you are a dedicated FBI asset doing disinfo here, you are in over your head in that game. There is no Constitution in this nation, nor do the laws apply.

    Good luck

    1. ROFL. Yeah, yeah, Mr. Intel Expert, you are under govt surveillance and have been for a decade or more, maybe much longer. I can tell because from just glancing around your blog you are obviously the kind of world class genius that every intel agency is dying to put under surveillance. If they could just download your big brain like a computer hard drive they would do that, but instead they must settle for surveillance.

    2. Hmm, well, after Roger did a follow-up interview I think I spotted the disconnect. We are indeed saying the same thing: the Utah Libertarians invited Roger, and they invited me to be there. Roger evidently assumed that the invitation from the Libertarian Party was my doing, and he sent word that he wanted to take me to dinner. I got that invitation out of the blue, as I had had nothing to do with the Libertarian Party inviting him in the first place.

      Sorry if that explanation was not as sinister/conspiratorial as you desired.

      1. I didn’t want it to be sinister/conspiratorial, but at this point I would be surprised if it was not. Just because the Libertarians put you guys in the same room, doesn’t mean it wasn’t as I thought, and it wasn’t done to get you two talking while monitored. Nor does it mean the Libertarian Party didn’t give Roger his false impression.

        Did you ever see the screenshot Lambright accidentally sent out of his browser, with his FBI and CIA login pages open in the tabs? http://archive.is/jUgmM

        I find it unlikely you two guys ended up at the same function by chance given the conversation one would assume would naturally develop, and at this point I would be shocked if most decision-making positions in the libertarian party weren’t occupied by assets being run by whoever it is that runs things. The Libertarian Party was always an immense threat, given it has always held the possibility of uniting people under the rubric of everyone just leaving everyone else alone. From what I have seen, the way the machine works is it looks for threats like that, and sends its people in to get control and occupy whatever positions of power it can grab. And since that kind of work is its bread and butter, that will end up being a lot of positions.

        It is ironic the libertarian party would end up most likely being a den of snakes, but it is unsurprising if you see how big this thing is, and understand it will move where the threats are. It also might explain why such a common sense ideology as “Lets all stay in our lane and get along,” cannot field a candidate capable of uniting the nation, even after decades of trying..

        Did you ever check out the story of Tom Bauerle? Its not as unrelated to what you were dealing with as you would think.

        I am greatly impressed with all you’ve done, and who you seem to be BTW, and didn’t intend to imply ignorance of intelligence as a bad thing in a judgmental sense. It is more like an eye color thing, as there is no way to understand unless fate drops understanding on you, in large part because what has been built in America is so unbelievable you cannot imagine it possible, until you see it firsthand.

        I was there, with no idea, just a little while back, and would still be if I didn’t get thrown in the deep end of the pool. Truth is I have seen it, and I still can’t believe.

        But if you see what is out there, and the magic-like technological capabilities it has developed entirely in the shadows, outside of the public’s knowledge for decades, and the manpower fo the informant network, there is no going back. Operation TIPS was built, and then some, with space-age technology.

        You should get the book Chameleo, by Robert Guffey. It is a fast read, and very funny. I don’t know any of the players in it, but given what I have seen I would just assume the protagonist’s story is almost certainly real. The only thing it doesn’t go into is the thru-wall imagery capability, and the audio, which is actually so good they say they can hear breaths, with no bugs, entirely remotely.

        From what I have seen, it is that bad out there on everyone, at least a few days every few years to burnish their files, though they never see it. A few of us get it much, much worse, and the most unlucky know.

        Good luck and stay safe..

    1. This comment was meant for “Anon” not for Patrick!! I have enormous respect for Patrick… for “Anon” not so much….

  83. You’re doing the right thing. Follow your intuition, it’s taken you this far and doesn’t lie to you like everyone else will. Thank you for all you are doing to get to the bottom of it all. It’s no easy thing to do. I’ve studied this stuff for years and am never really sure I know who is doing what. Through it all though, my intuition lets me know things are not right so I continue.

    Other than that, I can only say that Paul Cohen above is an asshole.

    1. hmmm Sharon Tobe, so you’ve “studied this stuff for years” yet you have absolutely nothing of substance to add here? Pathetic….

      You may not like what I say but I push for accuracy, intelligence, and competence…. which ALL of us should want…. and which too many online babblers like you, Sharon Tobe, are not providing. I get tired so much useless babble, which is even counter-productive (not merely useless) since it diverts and distracts people from a focus upon what could actually matter…. to ALL of us.
