Looking more and more like a carefully orchestrated program designed to create school shootings and thus a dismemberment of the 2nd Amendment.
It's easy to imagine that the likes of Obama, Duncan, Holder, Runcie and Israel failed to think their way through all the tragic possibilities of their policy. But it could also be a convenient excuse for a more sinister plot to create more tragedies thereby advancing the cause of gun control. I don't think we need any more legislation to control guns if they're not going to enforce the laws we already have. And if we have the kind of agreement that this article alleges between Runcie and Israel that should be evidence of misfeasance sufficient to cost them their jobs, maybe even enough to put them in jail. If I was a parent of one of the victims I'd be consulting a lawyer to determine if this agreement is grounds for a lawsuit with a big bucks settlement. I'd break that school district and sheriff's department, put them entirely out of business because they are worse than useless. Scott Israel's job is to enforce the law and if he's agreed not to do that he certainly shouldn't have that job anymore.

It isn't that they didn't think it thru - is that they just don't give a sh*t. What's a few dead schoolchildren as long as it drives their agenda.
After all this is the same bunch who ran weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartels for the sole purpose of making true (or at least making possible) Obama's claim that most weapons in mexico came from lax US gun laws. So what if a few mexicans get killed or a border patrol agent or three?
*that* is the kind of people we are dealing with.

The Trump administration’s plan to phaseout the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is legal, a federal judge ruled Monday.
Judge Roger W. Titus said the DACA rescission memo and the six-month phaseout provided an opportunity for Congress to do their job.
...Some argued that Trump’s inflammatory tweets should be used against the administration’s memo, but Titus disagreed. "As disheartening or inappropriate as the president’s occasionally disparaging remarks may be, they are not relevant to the larger issues governing the DACA rescission. The DACA Rescission Memo is clear as to its purpose and reasoning, and its decision is rationally supported by the administrative record."
Excerpt from the lengthy article:
[Diana West] Consider an earlier case with eerie parallels. As FBI Director (2001-2013), Robert Mueller presided over the Bureau’s decade-long counterintelligence operation known as "Ghost Stories," which targeted the deep-cover ring of Russian "illegals" mentioned above. In June 2010, the FBI netted this ring of covert Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) operatives, which was successfully boring into elite circles, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ‐ and then sent them packing ASAP to Mother Russia.
Why? All of the available evidence strongly suggests that this painstaking FBI work of a decade was thrown away to protect Hillary Clinton, the once and future presidential candidate, who was at risk of being compromised. As FBI counterintelligence chief Frank Figliuzzi put it: "We were becoming very concerned they were getting close enough to a sitting US cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow this to continue."
Never one to save the republic instead of herself, Hillary Clinton "worked feverishly" to get these Russian agents deported before they could be adequately debriefed or otherwise exploited, as J. Michael Waller writes. Remember, June 2010 was a busy month for the Clintons: Rosatom was initiating its purchase of Uranium One; Bill Clinton was pocketing $500,000 from that KGB-linked Moscow bank, Renaissance Capital, which was "talking up" Uranium One shares (even as $145 million was sloshing into the Clinton Foundation); President Obama was pushing for Russian membership in the World Trade Organization, and all the "reset" rest. The exposure of a highly trained network of SVR operatives targeting Hillary Clinton among others could not have been more inconvenient. How do you say, "Get them out of here on the double" in Russian? Going out a limb here, but did $500,000. in speaking fees help pay for the release of Anna and friends.
Looking back, I don’t recall FBI Director Mueller in a lather over this Russian "meddling," or "influence" on the Obama administration. Last time I looked, he did not resign from his FBI directorship in protest of this crude administration cover-up, either. Maybe he was too busy hiding evidence from Congress of the so-called Mikerin probe, the investigation into a Russian bribery scheme to control an American uranium trucking firm, even as U.S. lawmakers were examining the proposed sale of Uranium One to the Russian government.
Thus, in FBI Director Mueller’s treatment of the Russian espionage ring in we see a funhouse-mirror-image of Special Counsel Mueller’s Russian social media indictments. In 2010, without a single indictment or anything comparable, Mueller’s FBI did its part in deporting from American soil a network of high-value SVR operatives for political reasons; in 2018, without any expectation of prosecution, Mueller’s Special Counsel office indicted a network of Russian Internet hooligans on Russian soil, also for political reasons.
In both cases, it is our national security that suffers while Mueller’s political masters benefit. In 2010, they wanted Obama-Clinton protected from real Russian exposure; in 2018 they want Trump destroyed by concocted Russian exposure.
Enter the "dossier." And in exchange, the Brits get a potential Christopher Steele source, the now very ill Colonel Sergei Skripal.
I'd reckon there's a very good chance that British Intelligence (MI6) and possibly Chrstopher Steele, tipped us off to Chapman and her Russian cell. After all, she had been married to a Brit and lived in the UK for six years. To think the Brits were not monitoring Chapman whilst she was in the UK is dreadfully naive.
I'd also suggest that Sergei Skripal knew her father, veteran KGB agent Vasily Kushchenko, or knew of his Russian Intelligence status. Hell, Christopher Steele may have known Kushchencko. It really is a small community, especially for a Russian operating in Zimbabwe.
So, a rhetorical question. How badly does anyone feel the Deep State wish to burn Christopher Steele or MI6 ?
6 has long term embedded assets.
When the CIA pulled back their assets were lost and they were forced to share 2nd hand intelligence thru intermediaries. Deep State operates thru contracts not contacts.
Russian loathing for Skripal is highlighted by claims from Russian secret services historian Nikolai Luzan that the double was responsible for disclosing to MI6 the names of around 300 GRU staff members and other 'agents' including those working abroad.
