My reactions to Bpete on the Ochelli Effect show "Awaken When September Ends," Sept. 12, 2019

"Awaken When September Ends," Sept. 12, 2019. 

I think Bpete has conflated Gen. Mattis with Gen. Michael Flynn at about 24:28. 

Flynn was briefly Trump's National Security Advisor, a position he held for less than a month. Flynn was compromised by Russians. Acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned Trump about this and Trump did nothing about it for weeks. 

Flynn was also an unregistered agent for the Turkish government. 

Trump finally fired Flynn on Feb 13, 2017 for allegedly lying to VP Pence. Flynn  later pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Flynn is a traitor who will do anything for money. 

Mattis was Trump's Secretary of Defense. Mattis got fed up with Trump and wrote a resignation letter on Dec 20th, 2018 that criticized Trump. It ended with Mattis saying he would resign on Feb 28th. Trump reacting, declared, no Mattis you're fired as of Jan 1, 2019. 

Mattis never pled guilty to anything. Mattis was never charged with any crime that I know of. 

Flynn's sentencing has been delayed while he corroborated with Robert Mueller and the FBI. When Flynn wanted to be sentenced the judge gave him several overt hints that he really doesn't want to be sentenced today, go and corroborate with Mueller some more. A year later Flynn has fired his legal team and he's hired a Fox News conspiracy theorist, Sidney Powell, who thinks the whole case against Flynn is just "deep state" fake news crap. She thinks the entire Mueller investigation is just "deep state" fake news crap too. She's full of it. 

Pete also believes Biden colluded with the Russians.  This is BS. This is part of a thing where Rudy Giuliani was going to go to the Ukraine to find dirt on Biden.  

Hard Right-wing guys think the whole Trump-Russia thing is an invention, a lie created by U.S. intelligence people. They think the former head of the DNI ( Director of National Intelligence ) James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan made it all up.  Clapper and Brennan are demonized on right-wing media 24/7. It's total BS. 

Clapper was caught up in the NSA scandal where it was proven by Ed Snowden that, yes, the NSA had collected data on hundreds of millions of Americans. And Americans realized that yes, we are really living in a police state.  There is constant surveillance on everything and everyone.  

So, of course, Trump's constant use of an insecure cell phone which he used to communicate with Russians got turned into the lie that Obama was spying on Trump.  Trump is an idiot.  In this case the NSA was doing its job. They are supposed to monitor Russian communications and those who communicate with the Russians.  Only Trump is stupid enough not to think that anyone was listening to his communications with Russians. Trump has apparently never heard of the Cold War.  

Another point that irritated me was when Pete wanted to transfer George W. Bush's green lighting of torture as a decision Brennan and Clapper made.  

OMG, Pete doesn't think that Trump colluded with Russia at all! Instead he thinks the Democrats did.   Yeah, Hillary colluded with Russia to ensure her own defeat to Trump. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.  He buys into the false narrative that Mueller found nothing.  NOT TRUE. Don't forget that William Barr lied about its conclusions while preventing the release of the Mueller report for three weeks! 

And BPete believes that the Steele dossier was funded by Hillary Clinton.  This is a total lie and a Right-wing zombie talking point that will not die.  The Steele dossier was funded by Ted Cruz.  It was opposition research paid for by Ted Cruz during the Republican presidential primary season.  Hillary Clinton bought it AFTER those primaries were over.  All Trumpanzees lie about the true Steele dossier chronology.  They all delete its true chronology and affiliation with Ted Cruz.  

UGGHH!  The Democrats played George Papadopoulos? THE DEMOCRATS? 

Georgie-boy got drunk in a London wine bar, London's Kessington Wine Rooms on or about May 10, 2016 and blabbed to an Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, that the Russians had Hillary's emails.   

During the presidential campaign of 2016 Hillary Clinton was relentlessly attacked for using a private email server for official business while she was Secretary of State. The issue was if classified information may have been inappropriate used or stored in the email server.  She was investigated by the FBI over this for over a year.  FBI Director James Comey said on July 5th, 2016 there was no wrong doing  and no criminal charges were brought. 

During this investigation Hillary Clinton provided back to the State Dept 30,000 emails.  So, these were never missing.  But, this number stuck in Trump's head and he starts calling her "Crooked Hillary."

On July 12, 2016 Trump famously asked "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you can find the 30,000 emails that are missing."  Within hours the Russians try to do exactly this by attacking email servers used by Clinton's personal office.  

But at this time the public does not know that the DNC server had already been hacked, and hacked by Russia.  

In July of 2016 after it is known that the DNC server had been hacked Downer informed the FBI about what Papadopoulos had said in May of 2016.  And the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.  This is given the code name "Crossfire Hurricane."

In October 2016, just days before the presidential election James Comey announces the FBI has re-opened its investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails based on information from a laptop and possibly other devices from Rep. Anthony Weiner's "sexting" scandal. Rep.Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 for "sexting." He was married to Huma Abedin who was the Vice-Chair of Hillary Clinton's campaign. In 2013 while trying a political comeback running for the mayor of NYC Weiner sends another "sexting" image. 

In 2016 Weiner does it again with the "sexting," this time with a minor.  This time he goes to prison and has to turn over all computer devices.  That's when "new" Hillary Clinton emails are discovered. The GOP, and especially Rudy Giuliani try to resurrect the Hillary Clinton email scandal.   

I don't think we've yet seen anything from the FBI's counterintelligence investigation code named "Crossfire Hurricane." 

But to Pete it's all the Democrats, they're the evil ones, why isn't someone investigating them? And why won't they change Trump's diaper? 

Ochelli, bless him, doesn't go along with BPete's crap.

"They didn't get Cohen."  Really?  That's news to him, he's in prison right now.

"I'm not a fan of Trump."  You're certainly an apologist and defender of him.  

Umm, BPete, did you ever hear of the governors from New York who won the presidency? Hint, there were four, two were named Roosevelt.
