Zip and Durham were mentioned earlier because Barr's choosing U.S. Atty John Durham is noteworthy (Zip got jailed).

The link was offered as an answer to your question about dems and repubs. You didnt mention Zip and John in that question.

(but you probably knew all that)

Still looking for a connection between all this and the Q stuff.
Has there been another Q-flop from Q-Anus for the Q-flies to get all sweaty over, or does any kind of rivalry or disagreement between Democrats and Republicans count as support for this steaming farrago of pigswill?

Got any evidence, or are you just going to disown another post, as you usually do when asked to support it?



You've seen that? Or did BBC tell you?


I thought Jones' critics often say they dont hear him implicating Israel's govt.

Regardless, its always prudent to bear in mind the chance of controlled opposition, no matter who or what it is that one is studying.

No, I've seen it, myself, on the site. My first- and so far, thankfully, only- encounter with the term 'kike-roach' is a good example.

Only if you are a paranoid conspiracy fantasist. Which I am not. Nor do I equate paranoid fantasy with prudence.
Evidence is good. I like evidence. Got any?

The internet seems to think it is a thing.

The concept of controlled opposition might appeal to unscrupulous tyrants.

Some apparently say it appealed to Lenin , but I haven't seen proof he said so.


Quote:
A controlled opposition is a protest movement that is actually being led by government agents. Nearly all governments in history have employed this technique to trick and subdue their adversaries. Notably Vladimir Lenin who said ''"The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves."

It's what Russia, Iran, Syria and others have done for decades now.

Some guy calling himself Aliases who says it's true doesn't really count as evidence, Bubba.

"The internet" is your source?

"The internet" is of one clear, consistent view on this?

Here's a great collection of lots of other things the internet seems to think are things: www.snopes.com

The most important bombshell they released is that they believe that John Brennan, then head of the CIA, was the core of the conspiracy. Victoria Toensing added that this is because Clapper is too dumb to pull off such an operation.

They also revealed that Admiral Mike Rogers is happily willing to testify about the abuses he uncovered, which actually triggered the initiation of the Russiagate plot. Recall that when he was head of the National Security Agency (NSA), which comprehensively monitors telecommunications, he discovered that political appointees in the White House were using its database on a huge scale to monitor political opponents and acted to cut off that access. Suddenly cut off from their ability to spy on political opponents, and almost certainly fearful of public exposure should Hillary Clinton be defeated, the wheels were put in motion (with Brennan in the lead) to generate the Steele dossier and the FISA warrants to both spy on and tar the threat of a Trump presidency.


Any day now credules, any day.

True. Patience.

That was early phase. Wheels of justice turning slowly and all. The I. G. report is coming out soon.


What are the odds that the Durham investigation is for real and will bring the bad actors to justice?

Yep.

It is made to sound scary serious on purpose !


That is obviously because Trump is becoming evermore desperate to draw attention away from that old FBI guy Mr. Mueller, because Mueller is closing in on Trump's treasonous collusion with Russia.
