CIA Server Farm Raid

BY Herschel Smith
4 months, 2 weeks ago

General McInerny says it happened, and that U.S. military personnel were killed in the raid.

On the other hand, Jeffrey Prather says it happened, but that no one was killed.  See this video, starting at 22 minutes or thereabouts.

NC Scout has a fuller assessment here.

I try to take things like this with a grain of salt.  William Barr was going to turn the light on the deep state and make the cockroaches scatter.  As it turns out, Barr is likely part of the deep state.

Durham’s investigation was going to send the guilty to prison, and as it turns out, the entire investigation was shut down with a whimper because they fear backlash from an incoming Biden administration.

Trump was going to rid America of the deep state, and as it turns out, he might be its greatest victim.

Trump had four years to see what was happening with the voting scam, and failed to shut it down before it put him out of office.  He left Comey and McCabe in charge of the FBI, and then Chris Wray (good Lord).  He left Mattis in charge of the DoD, he put Jeff Sessions in charge of the DoJ, he allowed Kelly to direct the WH staff for far too long, he allowed Reince Priebus to direct affairs of the WH, and he spent his time on Twitter, empowering Jack Dorsey.  Not even to mention the role of McMaster, another deep state guy.

This failure is on Trump.  I hope that this goes to the SCOTUS and that Biden doesn’t take control of the executive branch, and that the servers were confiscated and turn up the full story of what happened.

But if not, the finger of blame cannot be pointed at powerless citizens to do the work of the chief executive.

    I heard that there were announcements a few days after the raid that a CIA agent
    and five members of Special Forces died. The former “killed in Somalia”, the latter
    in a “helicopter crash in Egypt”. The source I heard clarified it saying that these
    type of announcements are often used to cover black operation casualties.
    I heard the CIA guy was a black hat out of Afghanistan with a crew of CIA trained
    contractors who were sitting on the servers when the Special Forces moved in
    to grab them and a firefight ensued. I assume the contractors were Pashtuns
    or somesuch and their remains were dumped in an unmarked grave.

    If it actually happened it was likely former SpecOps shooting at active duty SpecOps and vice versa. The CIA gets most of their operators from retiring SpecOps.

  3. On November 30, 2020 at 12:45 am, John said:

    I would think so too, but I was quoting what the source was saying about them
    being “CIA trained”. Once I thought about it I figured that our own experienced
    SpecOps contractors wouldn’t have been Agency trained after coming out of the
    existing military Special Operations forces. Just saying.

    Is this… even feasible? This reads like a Tom Clancy sub-plot that his editor axed for being too James Bond. The only thing missing here is a cripple petting a pug and some manner of laser?

    Some weird time’s we’re living in if this is true. But man does it set off my fantasy-warning-detectors…

    I wouldn’t say we’re “powerless,” we do have the ability, and the resources, to do that job, but ain’t a single thing they’d like about how we would go about it. I’d think everyone would be much better served by them living up to their oath of office.

    A very rough and cold assessment, but very true statements.

    “Trump had four years”

    This neatly encapsulates the entire problem.

    Trump made a lot of cabinet choice mistakes, including Ruby Ridge Barr, but it wasn’t like he had a great labor pool to choose from.

    You or I or either of our dogs would have been a better choice for any of his posts than the people he selected.

    Trump had good people to call on, but he dumped them. Another stupid staffing decision by Trump.
    The 2016 transition team was headed by Steve Bannon (the brains behind the Trump campaign) and the line up of Trump staff was full of outsiders and some maverick insiders. Then for some unknown reason Trump dumped that team and shortly after announced Priebus as WH chief of staff. Trump traded outsiders and people who would truly attack the swamp for the worst insiders possible.

    In the 1980s a friend who was SF died w/his entire unit in an air-crash while training in Nevada. I know that he was no-where in CONUS at the time.

    I want to believe….

    Recall that both Herr Merkel and soy boy extraordinaire Trudeau threatened to send their .mil to help remove President Trump (he won!!) if he didn’t leave office due to the Color Revolution.

    Dominion’s HQ in NA was in Canada. Scytyl server farm in Germany.

    Methinks doth protesteth to mucheth….

    Then on the other hand I wonder if it just more Q style psyop…’No worries, you don’t need to do anything at all for the ‘White Hats’ to win, just wait two more weeks….’

    I want to believe that President Trump did all the things that made me scratch my head, ‘WHY, WHY, WHY?!?!?’ was part of the sting. I want to believe that Trump was giving them literally everything they wanted (except die) to lull them into a false sense of security to have the guts to try what they did. And then catch them.

    I want to believe the sting is still going, that the flights to Gitmo are happening, that the roll ups are ongoing, that the need to execute executions would be numbers so great injections wouldn’t be enough.

    I want to believe the swamp will finally be drained.

    I want to believe…..

    I will believe what my Bible says. And my interpretation of eschatological events is that we are the place in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream’s image where the 10 toes (regional governance) come out of 2 feet. Two legs and feet were east and west. Iron is the Marxist and Moslem countries. Clay is democracies. They will try to revive the Roman Empire, but it just won’t work.

    That means the East/West paradigm is dying. That regional governance is rising to give birth to the eventual satanicglobal.guv

    I find hope and solace that I see the Word unfolding. Even if it means a bumpy ride for the rest of this side. Because that means the parts I’m living for are also valid. At this time, iron is mixed with clay, unlike the Roman Empire which was iron (both power and control).

    I don’t know how this ends, to tie in to what was said would happen in the Bible.

    I do know that while they claim power, satan’s children lack control.

    And I believe that space in between is where God fearing Trad American Patriots live. And I believe that is why this era is still iron and clay, and not a return to iron.

    I also do know that Rock that, represents Jesus, shatters this system and those that birthed it.

    And if I stay faithful to my Master, His Kingdom and principles to the end my stand(s) will be rewarded. And I believe I will keep following Him!

    Blessed hope.

    Rumor from Vox Popli says Director Haspel dead from “natural causes”

    CNN had an article that she was iced out from meetings with trump recently.

    Jeff pretty much nails it. As a retired special agent, he has been there, done that, and had all vestiges of wool removed from his eyes. A big problem with Trump is that from all sides, he is being shilocked. Both by communist democrats, and useful idiot rino’s. Trumps instincts are good, his Own decisions are sound. Ya gotta wonder, who’s telling all these folks to go lie to the president on behalf of the deep state. I’ld say- lamp posts and rope for all deep state democrats, but many of the lamp posts are made in china, and wouldn’t take the load. But, there are plenty of over passes with strong railings available.

    “Trumps instincts are good, his Own decisions are sound.”

    I disagree. The people with whom he surrounded himself were awful, from beginning to end. He is an awful judge of character.

    As I’ve written elsewhere, he could have hired mechanics from the FN factory in Columbia, S.C., to fill all important posts within the FedGov and they would have cleaned out the deep state.
