COLORADO SPRINGS: In regard to watching the public testimony of Peter Strzok, the failed FBI former Chief of the Counterespionage Section; The person who led the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email. The individual commandeered the Mueller debacle until he was fired. While watching the public testimony of Peter Strzok it was surprising that not one congressman uttered the word, “treason.”
As Strzok is testifying about his primary role in meddling in a presidential election by overlooking questionable actions by one candidate while short-sheeting the other candidate, the congressional questioning, while theatrical, lacked the gravitas one might think was warranted by such actions.
Treason, a noun, means “the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.”
Synonyms: treachery, disloyalty, betrayal, faithlessness.
The phrase “none dare call it treason,” first appeared in an epigram by Elizabethan writer John Harrington:
“Treason doth neuer prosper? What’s the Reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”
Pastor John A. Stormer in 1964 published a book titled “None Dare Call It Treason,” which argued that America was losing the Cold War due to domestic communist subversion.
People have died
It should make no difference what side you’re on, Democrat, Republican, Independent, or ‘Decline to State.’ People have died as a result of easily hacked private servers being used for official government work. To repeat: People have died.
Without assigning blame, when the president and the secretary of state are texting each other via a privately held email server, your own teenager, much less the Russians or Chinese, could hack into, our security is not being protected.
Say what you will, Russia and China are “the enemy,” with their tentacles of bad deeds extending around the globe. Secrets of all types, including nuclear, are passed around like candy among them and their satellite countries.
It is fair to say that for U.S. secretaries of state, foreign national informants provide information on which they may base American covert operations in less than friendly parts of the globe. Covert, to remind everyone, means secret. A secret in order to protect those assets we have in less than safe areas of the world.
Protecting our security or CYA?
Once a foreign hacker learns of the identity of U.S. personnel, shares foreign informants’ names, it’s safe to assume that “bloody action,” including torture and death, is the chosen means of removal of such players.
Yet. none dared call Strzok’s actions placing not just his finger, but his entire fist on the scales of justice “treason.”
Peter Strzok, for those who’ve been under a rock all year, or who get their “news” from America’s Pravda Media, is an FBI agent. He is still an FBI agent. Before his demotion to a supervisory position in the Human Resources department, he served as Chief of the Counterespionage Section.
From there he led the FBI’s investigation into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server.
He rose to become the Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, the second-highest position in that division. He also led the FBI’s investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election.
In June and July 2017, Strzok worked on Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into any links or coordination between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government. Mueller removed Strzok from the Russia investigation when he became aware of criticisms of Trump contained in personal text messages exchanged between Strzok and his paramour at the FBI, attorney, Lisa Page.
Fox News has obtained those messages between the two lovers/self-appointed political operatives. The messages found on their government and personal devices, never mind the Hatch Act that prohibits political activities by government employees, span 2016 and are too numerous to list.
However, taken together, they point to two arrogant bureaucrats, bent on using their high positions inside the FBI to prop up one presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, and to stop her opponent, Donald Trump.
A lover’s promise, not delivered
Strzok promised Page that Trump would never become president, but that they needed an “insurance policy” in the unlikely event he succeeded in winning. A few of their more ‘choice’ messages include:
(Page) “God Trump is loathsome human.” March 4, 2016.
(Strzok) “OMG he’s an idiot. America will get what the voting public deserves.”
(Strzok) “God Hillary should win 100,000,000-0.
(Page) “Hi. Just leaving my meeting now. How we make law in this country is offensive and irresponsible.” June 22, 2016.
(Strzok): “I know it is. Its why I LOATHE congress.”
The planned soft coup of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page
Books have and are being written analyzing the actions that were taken to effectuate these text messages. The lovers’ messages provide a rare, illuminating window into a Venezuelan type “soft coup,” Page, Strzok, and others hoped to pull off in America under the electorate’s noses.
Their covert, partisan actions were the tip of the spear, as they sought to take matters into their own hands and deny Americans their votes.
Using the most powerful security apparatus in the world, they were hell-bent on undoing the 2016 presidential election.
All they managed so far, however, was to reveal powerful forces at the top who have been operating beneath the surface for decades, quietly manipulating America’s course to secure and hold onto power for themselves.
Repurposing the Consitution to political ideology
While Americans have been busy with their lives, school, raising families, a de facto redrafting of the Constitution has taken place, not on paper, but in actuality. Those in power, who claim to defend the right or the left, really are defending themselves and others for whom power is the ultimate elixir.
Along the way, some clever person re-named them “the elite.” Through a system of taxation, government regulation, and elite schools, they have reinforced their self-importance as they prove it by circumventing the laws of our country.
Peter Strzok and Lisa Page
Strzok and Page were not two benign low-level government workers. Strzok was a key player in the FBI’s investigation into whether Clinton had broken the law by using a private, unsecured email server to handle highly classified documents. He interviewed several of the people involved, including Clinton herself.
He was also the person who watered down the language in the statement used by Comey to exonerate Clinton, changing it from “gross negligence” to “extremely careless,” which was critical to Comey’s claim that Clinton didn’t break any laws.
They also were deeply involved in the FBI’s investigation into alleged Russia meddling, which started almost immediately after Comey let Clinton off the hook, and was sparked by a sketchy “dossier,” paid for by the Clinton campaign.
According to CNN, Strzok was the official who signed the document making the Russia probe official.
Plotting for America’s failure
When Barack Obama was elected in order to, as he stated so often, “fundamentally change America,” conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh pronounced loudly, “I hope he fails.”
There was much made of this seemingly un-American attitude. After all, Obama was our duly elected president. Precedent, tradition, and just plain manners dictate that the losers sit down and respect that reality, at least for four years.
Limbaugh explained that he didn’t hope the country failed, just that President Obama’s policies failed. He saw Obama’s agenda as socialistic and disdainful of the values originated by the Founding Fathers.
Limbaugh also was one of the first commentators to begin to see the bigger picture of self-styled globalists desirous not just of national power, but of literal world domination as well.
Spitting cats and dogs vs. leading
As a result of the “Never Trump Movement,” on the right, and Trump Derangement Syndrome on the left, the improbable has occurred. As spitting cats and dogs have become hyper-partisan and crazy, certain unintended consequences are being revealed. Rather than left versus right, capitalist versus socialist, a new divide has come to light.
Hidden by the partisan commotion, we are starting to see the “business-as-usual” actions of the Establishment. Men and women who don’t mind in the least residing under the title, “Elite.”
Old lines of left and right have been redrawn.
“They,” of the Elite Class, no longer need “Us,” of the Citizen Class.
“We” were clueless in the past, it took an iconoclast, in the form of a billionaire president, to draw the rats out into the light of day. Increasingly, the Citizen Class is catching on. It’s not, “It’s the economy, stupid,” of Bill Clinton’s days.
Nor, increasingly are we buying that it’s “Democrats versus Republicans.” Today, as has been revealed by an out-of-control FBI and Justice Department, it’s “the Establishment,” “the Elites,” and “the Globalists” versus the “Rest of U.S.”
Seeing the elitism that Peter Strzok leads
As we watched the facial expressions of Mr. Strzok as he testified, we momentarily were allowed to peek behind the curtain of elitism, if only for a day. No one, whether they reside on the old-fashioned “right” or “left” could mistake his arrogance and disdain for others who dared to challenge him.
Elitism’s smile, shown as a Strzok snarl was leveled at the country in full by “Operative Strzok.”
We saw a man in his glory, fully in charge, who doesn’t give a damn for the “Rest of U.S.” As he abetted crimes of his friends and damned his enemies, None Dared Call it Treason.
Yet, we saw, ladies and gentlemen, elitism on full display. We saw Deep State in full flower.
But, when the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, charged with upholding law and order, had one of the country’s worst offenders in full sight before them, all some could do was get angry.
Yet, even with such evil staring America in her face, “None Dared Call it Treason.”
