Trump treats FBI terrorists with the contempt they deserve

IN its pre-dawn raid on 67 year-old Republican consultant Roger Stone, the FBI deployed dozens of personnel with “automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles and an amphibious unit.” He was met at the front door of his home by cowards in military garb. They weren’t merely carrying what Democrats call “assault rifles.” Stone’s CCTV captured them braced to open fire. By any definition, this was terrorism.

 
Roger Stone is an eccentric man, an oddball whose career of political fixing, mischief-making and campaigning goes back to the immediate post-Nixon era. It would be easy to rig a process crime against a personality like this – one who has done more than his share of wheeling and dealing for GOP stars and causes. A living caricature of the colourful backroom operative, Stone is also completely – even gloriously – bereft of an off-switch when it comes to fighting back and giving lip. I used to think he was crazy. Maybe he is but he’s no quitter.

  2. It was obvious to all but the most addled with TDS that the coup plotters tried to scare the begeezes out of Stone (hence the armed raids and threats of long prison terms) to get him to compose something on Trump.
    That the man stood against this evil machine says something about his character.

    15 separate cars, drones and aircraft were used to arrest Maxwell. The Gestapo used less to round up an apartment building.

    Disappointing to note that the corrupt Mueller investigation into a non crime, resulted in half a dozen or so people charged with either process crimes or past unrelated crimes. At least five of them were sentenced to jail (off the top of my head: Stone, Flynn, Papadopolus, Manafort and Cohen).

    Meanwhile, John H. Durham has been given the job of looking into a real and massive crime; the beginnings of the Russia collusion hoax. After 15 months not one person has been charged with any real crime, or even a process crime. We have heard from Attorney General Barr that neither Barak Obama nor Joe Biden will be charged, despite the fact that the evidence against them is available to the public.

    Just this week I heard that Durham won’t report until after the Presidential election because, get this, he doesn’t want the report to be “political”. He must know that if Trump loses then the report will never be released at all.

    Seems the swamp is deeper than even Trump knew.

    Roger also has a great line about Roy Cohn, Trump mentor immortalised by The Simpsons as the Blue Haired Lawyer:

    Roy wasn’t Gay. He just liked having sex with men.

    Roger Stone was targeted by an illegal Witch Hunt that never should have taken place. It is the other side that are criminals, including Biden and Obama, who spied on my campaign – AND GOT CAUGHT!

    Yes, I saw that too, Jupes.
    It seems every time some figure emerges who is cheered as The One who will get to the bottom of it all and make the criminals pay, he mysteriously loses heart.
    I’m not into conspiracies but it really is like they are blackmailed into stalling to save the racket.
    The racket cannot be touched. And that racket is owned by the left.

    I wonder if the men involved feel proud of their actions. Or shame?

    The report I heard on the Beeb said his career went back not to the post-Nixon era but to the Nixon era.
    Nice bit of tarring they did there.
    The left media are still after Bannon at every opportunity too.

  10. You come at the Penguin, you best be bringing an amphibious unit.

    So similar to your average ICE operation, putting those nefarious immigrants into camps.
    Suddenly you have an issue?

  12. CL used to be a conservative, now he is all in with Trump and the Know Nothings.

    If Trump pardoned himself, CL and the rest of you would cheer lustily.

    Was he on a boat?!

    No, his house was on a canal and the FBI had combat trained divers in the water there during his arrest for some bizarre reason.
