The bug in Mueller’s report to be released Thursday is that he accepts that the Russian government interfered in the election.  Trump should challenge that, says VIPS.

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)

SUBJECT: The Fly in the Mueller Ointment

Mr. President:

The song has ended but the melody lingers on. The expected release Thursday of the redacted text of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election” will nudge the American people a tad closer to the truth on so-called “Russiagate.”

But judging by Attorney General William Barr’s 4-page summary, the Mueller report will leave unscathed the central-but-unproven allegation that the Russian government hacked into the DNC and Podesta emails, gave them to WikiLeaks to publish, and helped you win the election. The thrust will be the same; namely, even if there is a lack of evidence that you colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin, you have him to thank for becoming president. And that melody will linger on for the rest of your presidency, unless you seize the moment.

Mueller has accepted that central-but-unproven allegation as gospel truth, apparently in the lack of any disinterested, independent forensic work. Following the odd example of his erstwhile colleague, former FBI Director James Comey, Mueller apparently has relied for forensics on a discredited, DNC-hired firm named CrowdStrike, whose credibility is on a par with “pee-tape dossier” compiler Christopher Steele. Like Steele, CrowdStrike was hired and paid by the DNC (through a cutout).

We brought the lack of independent forensics to the attention of Attorney General William Barr on March 13 in a Memorandum entitled “Mueller’s Forensic-Free Findings”, but received no reply or acknowledgement. In that Memorandum we described the results of our own independent, agenda-free forensic investigation led by two former Technical Directors of the NSA, who avoid squishy “assessments,” preferring to base their findings on fundamental principles of science and the scientific method. Our findings remain unchallenged; they reveal gaping holes in CrowdStrike’s conclusions.

We will not win fighting what we hate but by saving what we love.

Keep Calm and Carry On 👍

I'm sure president Bolton would nip that in the bud should Trump actually grow a pair and call out the bullshit.

I never expected much out of Trump. I did not expect him to stab his base in the back over and over.
He better be careful. That crowd he riled up is not very forgiving. And, once they figure out he is screwing them over.
Well...

Not 1 mile of new wall
Not 1 overseas base closed
Still in Syria
No reduction in annual spending
No infrastructure projects
Not 1 person locked up for the coup
and on and on.

Glad I diddn't expect much.
Can't wait for the shit storm that is about to rain down on him from his soon to be former base.
Pipeline and Railroad across the Berring Strait: Bye bye middle east quagmires. Bye bye 23ft/gal super tankers polluting the world. Add a highway to that. Then we can drive to Asia, Europe and Africa. Road trip heaven!

I’m seeing more and more of this too, Sriracha.

When I posted ‘Julian Assange is a Political Prisoner’ from Ron Paul’s website, I happened to see this article there too entitled “Jumping off the Trump Train.Assange was the last straw”.

There’s also one up there today about Yemen, that I”m about to read.

The only thing about a lot of Trump's base is, as Caitlin Johnstone stated, they're foam brained. 

For the most part they're all in for war against muh socialist Venezuela for instance.

They're tribalists like the Obamabots.

Once the general person commits to liking someone, the ego takes hold and it becomes very difficult to change said position, no matter the evidence.  I submit the Youtube personality named "H A Good man" as an example of this.  He clings to his support of Trump even though he didn't vote for him, unironically saying "Trump is getting us out of counter insurgency wars."  Quite an astonishing statement in April 2019.  First, there would obviously be no insurgency to counter had the US not upset the apple cart in country after country and second, in what universe is Trump pulling the US out of these unilateral wars. 

I held out a decent bit of hope for Trumpster until his proposal to cut the social safety net and his Venezuela moves  among other things.  In my view he's now a full fledged card carrying swamp creature.  Others who are more savvy than myself knew it was over before it began when he appointed the Exxon CEO as Sec of State in December of 2016.

In the primaries, he brilliantly fed the base the red meat they eagerly devoured, and for the general election he co-opted a lot of Bernie Sanders' anti establishment message.  His closing argument video could have absolutely been Sanders' closing argument video. 

I posted up a list of some of his stated campaign positions here last year and a comment was made that the positions sound like a Green Party platform. 

Sure it may have been an act all along, but I tend to think Trump believed in some of those ideas because he had been speaking on some of those items since the 80s even including single payer health care (so if it was an act, that's a hell of a long con), but got swamped once he took up residence in d.c.
