The recommendation to fire Comey did not emanate from the White House. It was an initiative of US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who prepared a three page memorandum, which  criticized James Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation and the release of his October 28, 2016 Second Letter to Congress 11 days before Election Day.

The Attorney General’s office visibly acted in defiance of the White House.    

1. Trump was manipulated into accepting and endorsing the Attorney General’s initiative. The media relentlessly displayed a narrative of personal confrontation between Comey and Trump. The propaganda campaign contributed quite deliberately to triggering personal divisions between Trump and Comey.  According to the Independent (May 11, 2017) quoting FBI insiders: “James Comey was fired by Donald Trump because of his refusal to end the investigation into links between Russia and the US leader’s presidential campaign team…”

That authoritative explanation –which pervades the Western media– is contradictory and nonsensical. It fails to address the fact that Trump did not decide to fire Comey.  [Read more]

    No surprise here. The FBI is very influential in the appointment and management of all those little puppets angling for first in line to be dangled upside down while slobbering over their owner’s body parts – which may vary depending on whatever their preference happens to be. (Poor Cameron – how he manages to live with that shame IS food for thought. A depraved mind of full display. The the things people do…smh.) In other words, he who runs the FBI runs DC. Yet he who runs the FBI has his own set of dirty secrets that keeps him in line too.

    Politics like all other cut throat environments select those with skeletons in their closets so as to keep them enslaved. I wonder if the reason most people love their enslavement has to do with a morbid desire to be noticed – as in any attention is better than no attention. The uglier and more deplorable the person the more craven the behavior. Sick!

    This brings me to Guyana of which the most extreme of this behavior is on full display. The little slaves running around doing their massa bidding are extremely lower on the totem pole and thus extremely desperate for massa’s attention. Doesn’t the phrase ‘Nassau baby’ evokes this craven attention desperation. Yes, the pathetic outside slaves strutting around oblivious to their own buffoonery. Good gawd!
