We THINK we are...but are we really??
As ready as is possible. The mental readiness from a reality and emotional aspect is the most challenging due to not really knowing what to expect as far as reactions and resistance. We've never done this before. The usual survival type readiness (food/energy/supplies/meds/clothing/shelter/etc./etc.) is in place almost like 2nd nature.

I like the message. The painting is a little weird with guy with rifle versus guy with rod and someone in the back shooting a knight.

might want to be cautious how much credence you hang your ideologies on regarding the pos durham

the guy is a swamp creature of the highest order, and will be very adept at burying any dirty diapers

you'll never know is the point
The same applies to Barr, Kavanaugh, Huber et al.

They are all BAR members; as were the Klintoons and Obummers...

However, Q has provided us with insights that tend to provide a sense of optimism.

No doubt many nefarious deeds will go uncharged. Deals will be cut.

We can only hope and pray that good will come of this exercise.

This is the problem, as I see it. People are seeking optimism instead of the truth.

Pretty harsh judgment...

Any evidence to support your conclusions?

I thought I was fairly clued into political goings on prior to 'Q'.

Now I'm not so sure I knew anything at all before 'Q'.

If Hillary would have won (stolen the election) we'd be happily riding in the back of the bus thinking happy thoughts about how our leaders are keeping us safe by going to war with yet another meanie.

A Cheese Pizza would still be a 'cheese pizza'.
The media would be reporting the truth.

Pretty harsh judgment...

I will let someone else state it for you:

-------------
In Boston, Durham faced a gigantic scandal that was very damaging to the FBI and did not blink. He got John Connelly, Whitey Bulger's protector, sentenced to 40 years in prison. This does not sound like a prosecutor who can be persuaded to lay off getting to the truth in order to protect the reputations of important people and institutions.


But we must concede that there are plenty of reasons to worry that that the biggest political scandal in American history — the political weaponization of both the federal intelligence and law enforcement communities to spy on political opponents of the sitting president and remove a duly elected president from office — will be swept under the rug. Even a sober-minded man of integrity like William Barr might be persuaded that the harm to public trust in our system would be too profound and that our allies and foes overseas might see us as so weakened that they would take actions inimical to our interests.


Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh provided a fascinating insight into the level of distrust the conservative base has in the ability of our institutions and their leaders to right themselves. After reviewing what Durham could accomplish, he came back after a commercial break and said:



Holy cow. Some of you people are on fire out there today. I checked the email during the break, and I got a bunch of people sending me notes. "I don't care about this guy's resume. I'm fed up with hearing about people's resume!" They're talking about the guy that Barr has appointed. "I'm gonna wait see results. I don't care what this guy's done. You know, that's all we get. We get resumes, we get past history, we get performance, we get our hopes raised, we get our expectations raised, and then nothing ever happens.

"So you can stuff this guy's resume, Mr. Limbaugh, as far as I'm concerned. I'm waiting to see if anybody delivers on this." I understand the sentiment, folks. I understand the sentiment. I can count as easily as you can the number of times over whatever length of time in the past you want, 30 years, 10 years, 15, five, it doesn't matter. The number of times we've been led to believe that heads are gonna roll, things are gonna happen, the bad guys are gonna get caught. I mean, for two years we've been, "Breaking news! Breaking news!
"The bottom's gonna fall out tomorrow," and it never does. "Breaking news! Breaking news! Heads are gonna roll tomorrow," and they never do. "Breaking news! Breaking news! Full operation exposed, details tomorrow morning," whatever. Never happens. I understand that.

Keeping in mind the need to understand how fiercely the permanent bureaucracy and globalist faction in both parties want to frustrate President Trump's agenda, and how damaging a thorough housecleaning would be for them, let's review the reasons to hope that there will be a serious follow-through by Barr, Durham, and John Huber (the U.S. attorney for Utah who was tasked by A.G. Sessions with investigating the Clinton Foundation and surveillance abuses), especially after the I.G. Horowitz report is released, as is expected within the next 2 or 3 weeks

while his accomplishments appear to be 'cute' and all,

I look at the handlers to tell me what is really up,

Janet Reno put him up, then the kenyan and his whore, etc.

He comes with ties to the deepest of the deep state,

--------------
Career
Amid allegations that FBI informants James "Whitey" Bulger and Stephen "The Rifleman" Flemmi had corrupted their handlers, US Attorney General Janet Reno named Durham special prosecutor in 1999. He oversaw a task force of FBI agents brought in from other offices to investigate the Boston office's handling of informants.[8]

In December 2000, Durham revealed secret FBI documents that convinced a judge to vacate the 1968 murder convictions of Enrico Tameleo, Joseph Salvati, Peter J. Limone and Louis Greco because they had been framed by the agency. In 2007, the documents helped Salvati, Limone, and the families of the two other men, who had died in prison, win a $101.7 million civil judgment against the government.[8]

In 2002, Durham helped secure the conviction of retired FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., who was sentenced to 10 years in prison on federal racketeering charges for protecting Bulger and Flemmi from prosecution and warning Bulger to flee just before the gangster's 1995 indictment.[8]

Durham's task force also gathered evidence against retired FBI agent H. Paul Rico who was indicted in Oklahoma on state charges that he helped Bulger and Flemmi kill a Tulsa businessman in 1981. Rico died in 2004 before the case went to trial.[8]

Durham also led a series of high-profile prosecutions in Connecticut against the New England Mafia and corrupt politicians, including former governor John G. Rowland.[8]

In 2008, Durham was appointed by then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey to investigate the destruction of CIA videotapes of detainee interrogations.[9][10][11] On November 8, 2010, Durham closed the investigation without recommending any criminal charges be filed.[12] Durham's final report remains secret but was the subject of an unsuccessful lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act filed by The New York Times reporter Charlie Savage.[13]

In August 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder appointed Durham to lead the Justice Department's investigation of the legality of CIA's use of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques".[14] Durham’s mandate was only to look at those interrogations that had gone "beyond the officially sanctioned guidelines", with Attorney General Holder saying interrogators who had acted in “good faith” based on guidance from the Bush Justice Department were not to be prosecuted.[15] Later in 2009, University of Toledo law professor Benjamin G. Davis attended a conference where former officials of the Bush administration had told conference participants shocking stories, and accounts of illegality on the part of more senior Bush officials.[16] Davis wrote an appeal to former Bush officials to take their accounts of illegality directly to Durham. A criminal investigation into the deaths of two detainees, Gul Rahman in Afghanistan and Manadel al-Jamadi in Iraq, was opened in 2011. It was closed in 2012 with no charges filed.[17][18]

In November 2011, Durham was included on The New Republic's list of Washington's most powerful, least famous people.[19]

In April 2019,[20] Attorney General William Barr announced that he had launched a review of the origins of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference[21] and it was reported in May he assigned Durham to lead it. Durham was given the authority "to broadly examin[e] the government’s collection of intelligence involving the Trump campaign’s interactions with Russians," reviewing government documents and requesting voluntary witness statements.[22]

There is nothing in either post you made that would provide "evidence" of his being sold out to the deep state. In fact - one could argue that what you provided is proof that he isnt sold out...

The "enhanced interrogations" he was essentially handcuffed because the Bush admin had given legal cover for whatever was done - so there was nothing beyond that which could be prosecuted.

I cant comment on the CIA investigation as that was classified and hasnt been released - so theres no telling what his findings were.

I get the cynicism many here have. I promise - I get it. And truth be told - its well earned cynicism...

But - its a dangerous road to go down when we start labeling individuals as sold out deep state loyalists simply because they were hired/appointed by the "blue team" years back... thats pretty thin in terms of substantiating evidence.

I still contend that Trump is in a death match with the deep state and there is no going back. Its succeed...or else.

And from what little bit I know of this Durham guy...he seems like the real deal. As does Barr...

Time may well prove you guys right...and that my hope in justice is for naught. It will be a very sad day if that happens because I think we all understand what comes after that...

But in the meantime - I will hold out hope...and continue to believe that there are still some good people out there that share the same values and ideals as ourselves...

I imagine that all these people have been spied on via the NSA databases so all factions involved know who they can trust and who they can't trust...who is "dirty", who is kinda "dirty" and who is really clean and dependable to follow the Constitutional rule of law.

I say hang the perps. If our allies and foes overseas see us as so weakened that they would take actions - let them try.

I think they'd be in for a big surprise....

From my perspective, the nation would be a whole lot better off if the perps did the perp walk. It would send a message that never again... will this be allowed.

Especially if we hung them in the public square by the neck until dead!
