Yes, the Deep State Mutinied against Trump, and Conducted a Coup d’Etat (Zuck on Rogan)

 

I’d like to thank Facebook Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg for his honesty here.  Never thought I’d say that.  Zuck tells Rogan that the FBI “warned” (then) FaceBook that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation.  Recall that the FBI had the laptop in its custody by then, and had for about a year prior.

If you are inclined to pooh-pooh all this talk of our government turning upon the citizens, I challenge you to watch the short video here and come away unshaken.

The FBI is a corrupt partner of the Democrat party, like much of the Deep State, and they stole the 2020 election.

Government, media, and tech colluded from 2016 through 2020 to peddle and prop up the “Russian Collusion” fiction, and ran the exact same play in 2020.

The process is the punishment, and the investigation is the coverup.  There is no justice for those who do not toe the Party Line.

    I’d like to disagree with you here, but all I can come up with is my concern that the proper spelling may be “tow the Party Line.”

    Actually no, it’s toe.  As in, stand at the line with your big toe(s) there to indicate your obedience.

    Well, well. I had no idea.  I hope I remember that.

    I really thought it was about pulling a line, not lining up to it.

    Stupid lines.

    Stupid lines.

    Toeing the line is also what soldiers do when lining up etc.

    toe the line

    phrase of toe

    accept the authority, principles, or policies of a particular group, especially under pressure.

     

    to do what you are expected to do without causing trouble for anyone: If you want to get ahead, you’d better learn to toe the line.

     

    It’s also a past reference to running races etc:

    Is the phrase toe the line or tow the line?

    On your mark, get set, go! When you stand ready for a race with your toes on the starting line, you literally toe the line. In fact, people used to say, “Toe your mark, get set, go!” These days, the expression toe the line is more commonly used to refer to doing what’s expected of you, or conforming.

     

    Where did the term toe the line come from?

    The most likely origin of the term goes back to the wooden decked ships of the Royal Navy during the late 17th or early 18th century. Barefooted seamen had to stand at attention for inspection and had to line up on deck along the seams of the wooden planks, hence to “toe the line”.

    Not to hijack the thread — well, maybe a little — I always thought “toe the line” referred to fighters in the ring who would step up and “toe the line” before commencing the fight. In other words, it’s not enough to “conform” to the dominant ideology. You actually have to fight for it.

    This is confirmation of what we already knew or suspected. A worthy post!

    I must comment however on the line of argument that this could be used against Democrats I.E. if the Republicans gained power they could use the FBI and other agencies against a Democrat Administration. While theoretically this is correct and a good reason for any fair-minded person to be absolutely enraged by this practice in a modern Democracy or Republic, there are very few fair-minded people who are left on the “Democratic” side of the virtual aisle, so that argument falls on mostly deaf ears.

    The real truth is (and the democrats know this) is that there’s no way, even if some tyrannical Republican was intent on weaponizing the FBI or any other agency, that it could ever happen without decades of purging the existing partisans out of those agencies and also the media.

    I’ve heard this argument from many people and it just falls flat with me. I’m sick of hearing it. I don’t think it registers with who needs to hear it. They don’t care. The threat (such as it is) is empty and meaningless. They have this ability now and they will continue to apply it as needed to retain power and expand power. 

    Further,  what we stand for is equal justice, and we wouldn’t politicize these agencies even if we could. Not because someday the tables might be turned on us, but because we know that causes more problems for everyone and destroys the country.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think the FBI is a reprehensible organization that should be axed, with some bits going to other organizations.

    But the idea that the FBI MADE Zuckerberg, the highly partisan Democrat, sensor the Hunter Biden story is ludicrous. Why would anyone believe Zuckerberg? This is just CYA before the elections.

    Great Post BDB.

    The FBI obviously committed some serious crimes in the Hunter  Biden scandal.  But who after Christopher Wray can be charged and charged with what? And who can charge them- certainly not this DOJ?

    The post also refers to the greater mutiny of almost all the Administrative State bureaucracies; what are we to do with them? How can they be  punished?

    This is exactly true, and likely why term limits are necessary for the bureaucratical imbeds employed in D.C. Their livelihoods are connected with the democrat party and the growth of the federal bureaucracy.  They are scared to death by ‘small government’ reformers coming in who might rock their boat. This is a serious problem if our goal is to ‘keep the Republic’.

    I guess we’re still permitted on some channels to tell the truth, but that will end soon.  The question is what will we do about it?  The last election was obviously stolen and made easier to not have to steal so many votes by the fraudulent stories such as this one tells about.  This story itself is not carried on the mainstream media, or any of the big digital sites.    Why would they care if we pull out and form a new Republic?   That is our only option unless we can get enough votes to overcome the wildly bigger theft we’re about to see.  Why do  they care?  Because they know it will be successful, rich and therefore a threat to them because they won’t be and they know it.  Let them join Canada, they’re also corrupt.  In fact, it is in their interest for us to form a separate successful country, because together with them in charge we’re, (the US) is going to die.  I don’t know why that isn’t obvious.

    Nope. A huge portion of conservatives/Republicans (especially elected ones) don’t realize how dire the situation is. They think a return to “normal” (whatever that is) is still possible/probable. I seriously doubt we’ll ever recover America as intended from the fundamental transformation accomplished by the Left. There are many sins of commission and omission to account for, but one of our biggest mistakes was nominating that gutless wonder and author of Romneycare/Obamacare to run against Barack Obama in 2012. Mr. Civility himself. Mr. whatever-you-do-don’t-get-your-hands-dirty in this battle for America. I believe that was our last chance to rescue America (and a slim one at that, given the corruption of our institutions).

    Can’t tell you how much I agree with this.  Many things broke in 2012, and I was one of them.  The re-election of Obama was heart-breaking.  It meant that the country had seen socialism and liked it.  I had terrifying chest pains on election night and echoes of it whenever I tried to write about politics for years afterward.  I stopped blogging.  Yahoo! quietly turning off .htacess re-writes helped spike my blog by destroying external links, but that was a foreshock.

    It was during the second Obama administration that the machinery was installed which we see in operation today.  And none too soon!  Imagine what might have been if the Executive branch had not mutinied during Trump’s term, and had not ultimately thrown out the infidel outsider.

    I was loud and annoying about how the 2012 election was going to be for all the marbles.  I maintain that I was right.

    We are well and truly screwed.  That does not mean that all is lost, or that there is nothing worth doing.  It does mean that I have no ear to hear what the go-along crowd or the live-in-the-past bunch have to say.  Politics has changed.  The country has changed.  We have been fundamentally transformed.  Did people think that was a throwaway line?  That was a program, developed over decades, and it worked.

    Well, the angina is down to just a dull throb, but an unpleasant one.  Man.  I really have an issue with this.
