Speculative Analysis versus 'Fake News'

The brand of journalism that you read on this blog is a product of analysis by one trained in the discipline. Analytical skill combined with 25 years in consulting to the federal government add to the knowledge about politics and government.

There are other blog sites including Western Journalism and something they call "Patriotbotics."
"Investigative journalism and analysis of the Russian hack on America’s election and related topics. Pro-America, pro-democracy, pro-NATO, pro-Russia, anti-Putin." 
"The Western Journalism Center (also called the Western Center for Journalism) was founded in 1991 by Joseph Farah and James H. Smith. Based in Sacramento, California, the center produces a popular conservative newsletter."
The significance is that Patriotbotics reported a story alleging that Republicans are preparing for a cascade of bad news that could result in Orrin Hatch being the last unscathed Republican in the Constitutional protocol of command. That is debatable and when the Trump administration falls, there will be lots to deliberate with filings before the Supreme Court to answer who is in charge. Take this report as one possibility.

Western Journalism may be politically motivated to position Orrin Hatch as a best case scenario for Republicans.
"Exclusive: Several sources familiar with the matter say that Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah is being given security briefings to prepare him for the Presidency. 
Sources close to the legal community indicate that matters are proceeding rapidly in the forthcoming proceedings to remove Donald Trump from office, and to indict the co-conspirators around him. 
Sources with links to the intelligence community described a sense of both inevitability and urgency over the unraveling of the Trump-Pence administration over their attempts to obstruct justice. “Trump’s presdidency ended May 9th,” said one source, referring to the overtly politicized dismissal of FBI Director James Comey. 
Patribotics hopes to expand our reporting and commission other writers. If you would like to donate, there are buttons around the site, or you could make a contribution here.
Donald Trump and Mike Pence have both violated their oaths of office in plain sight over the unconstitutional dismissal of Director Comey, these sources say, and elements of the Judicial Branch are asserting the separation of powers described in the Constitution. This matter is separate from, and additional to, the substantive charges of collusion with the Russian state, and of money-laundering, sedition, violation of the Logan Act, and other crimes with which both Trump and Pence may be charged. As I exclusively reported earlier this week, Speaker Paul Ryan, normally third in the line of succession, will be excluded as the intelligence community has an intercept in which Ryan openly admits that he knew Sergei Kislyak was washing Russian money into the GOP. This will convict Ryan on RICO charges; as I have also exclusively reported this week, a RICO case exists against the GOP as a body. The raids earlier this week on a data and consulting firm close to Paul Manafort formed part of evidence gathering in this RICO case. 
Some of the violations committed this week by Pence and Trump include, but are not limited to, lying that Director Comey told Mr. Trump he was not being investigated; explicitly connecting Trump’s firing of Comey to the investigation of his connections with Russian hacking; using White House spokesmen knowingly to lie to the public, for example, Sarah Sanders Huckabee claiming Comey “committed atrocities”; having the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, involve himself on a matter on which he was recused; explicitly stating that the White House wishes a new FBI Director to bring the Russia investigation to a conclusion; and witness tampering with threats to Director Comey."

Orrin Hatch, in the wing?


  1. The analysis by Western Journalism parallels mine that says that Speaker Ryan and Mitch McConnell are too conflicted and tainted to follow in Constitutional protocol in the event that Trump is impeached. Pence will go along with Trump.

  2. “The president … has alleged that ‘millions of votes’ were ‘illegally’ cast ‘for the other side,’” Ho said. “No concrete evidence has been provided thus far to support the president’s serious indictment against American democracy.”

    “Yet the president’s allegations are the basis of an executive order … to establish a ‘Commission on Election Integrity,’” Ho’s statement read. “This FOIA demands that the government release the factual basis and evidence supporting the president’s allegations.”

    This is a genius political maneuver by the ACLU because it puts Trump and his team of shameless fabricators in an IMPOSSIBLE position. They can’t hand over any factual evidence because there is NONE to support their outrageously incendiary “voter fraud” claims.
