- Engineered contested election scenario +
- Massive mobilized protests ("peaceful protests") and acts of civil disobedience
- Same "color revolution professionals," same "playbook"
"Norm Eisen is a key legal hatchet man, Democrat operative, former Obama ethics czar, believe it or not. He is also a key architect of nearly every effort to censor, sue, impeach, and overthrow the President."
"He is the author of a color revolution playbook literally called the 'playbook'. And one of the items he calls for...is engineering election fraud scenarios, using election fraud to engineer mass protests to question the legitimacy of the target leader."
Let's take a look for ourselves.

Note before we begin that "illiberal" here is a code for Trump.

newrepublic.com/amp/article/13…
mainepublic.org/post/viktor-or…
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illiberal…
Note the use of lawfare: "When...authoritarian challenges emerge, further legal mechanisms should be considered to sanction extreme behavior."
Eisen et al. try to delegitimize "drain the swamp."

"when politicians unfairly cast their opponents as illegitimate, dangerous threats, they can also justify using
authoritarian measures to defeat them."
In this narrative, a strong and clear President with a strong and clear message is "extremist." Thus the herd must exercise "responsible political behavior" and remove his power.
"Unfortunately, not all would-be despots are easy to spot."

The Orwellian language is frightening.
Another code word is "populist."

The "illiberal" leader appeals to this group.

Trusting people to know what they want is bad.
--> "referenda offer an opportunity to citizens to decisively communicate their aversion to a populist government"

"Nationalist" too.

--> "societies and governments are grappling with how to handle powerful populist and nationalist movements that exude illiberal tendencies."
"opposition members should draw mainly upon institutional measures, the standard tools of the democratic game, to slow or obstruct illiberal reforms" -- Civil Service Revolt anyone?
"Opposition leaders may also choose to pursue more extreme institutional measures available to them (e.g., impeachment processes, votes of no confidence, and recall
referenda) and/or deploy extra-institutional tools (e.g., protests, strikes, or boycotts)."
"Activists join fists in solidarity ahead of a protest march."
Fists

"B. WHY SUPPORT CIVIL RESISTANCE, AND WHOM TO SUPPORT?"

It gets sympathy
Decentralized yet coordinated.
"the U.S. government, the EU, the World Bank, and other organizations like the Eurasia Foundation gave hundreds of millions of dollars to the 'third sector' of Georgia, which helped push for democratization and helped organize protests."
"F. BOOSTING EFFORTS OF INDEPENDENT MEDIA"

"Independent journalism has played a historically
important role in raising awareness of and supporting the goals of civil resistance and nonviolent movements."
"G. UKRAINE’S ORANGE REVOLUTION: A CASE STUDY OF EXTERNAL SUPPORT TO CIVIL RESISTANCE MOVEMENTS"

USAID
the Westminster
Foundation
National Endowment for Democracy (NED)
the Alfred Moser Foundation
"One of the leading organizers of the Orange Revolution, Pora (meaning, “It’s Time”), received grants from the German Marshall Fund, Freedom House, the Canadian International Development Agency, and others"
"Diplomats coordinated their actions, at times using their own embassy funds to fund independent media outlets"
"They also used their diplomatic immunity to protect activists."
Fact Checkers
"Official actors within the EU, the U.S. State Department, and USAID should increase support for independent civil society and investigative, independent media organizations."
Norm Eisen, Soros Ties
"Soros-Tied Group Run by Top Dem Operatives Promotes Global Leftist Agenda" 2/12/2020

judicialwatch.org/corruption-chr…
"Another influential group aiming to spread leftist billionaire George Soros’ radical global agenda has popped up in the U.S....the Transatlantic Democracy Working Group (TDWG)...an offshoot of the Soros-funded German Marshall Fund, a liberal foreign policy think tank"
"Obama’s law school classmate, Norm Eisen, is the co-chair of the TDWG’s steering committee."

(Note: TDWG director Susan Corke cowrote the "Playbook" with Eisen.)
"During President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, Eisen, a longtime Trump critic, served as counsel to the House Judiciary Committee."
"In 2003 he co-founded the liberal nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)" - about $900K support from Soros sources since 2010 crewexposed.com/who-is-crew/cr…
TDWG ""has been highly critical of the Trump administration’s foreign policy and has used its podcast to promote Soros’ Open Society Foundations."
Also, this (2020): "Norm Eisen Lays Out the ‘Legal Resistance’ & Impeaching Trump in New Book"

"'There was simply no time for litigation, particularly if these allegations were true. Whatever we did, it had to be fast,' Eisen wrote of impeaching Trump."

law.com/nationallawjou…
"Eisen writes in the book that, before Trump was even inaugurated, a group of lawyers he labels the 'legal Resistance' held weekly calls on Fridays about how to counter the administration in court. "
"'Our legal Resistance group included those who fought Russian interference, the Muslim ban, possible Hatch Act violations, Jared Kushner’s security clearance; we even fought Trump on using the presidential seal at his golf course,' Eisen writes."
"Eisen writes he and [Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel’s Barry] Berke helped craft a road map to impeach Trump once they were hired as special counsel for the House Judiciary"
"Eisen...describes marathon sessions with Judiciary counsel such as Arya Hariharan, Sarah Istel, Perry Apelbaum and Aaron Hiller, and collaborating with other key staffers such as Nadler’s chief of staff Amy Rutkin and House Intelligence counsel Maher Bitar"
"Once the impeachment proceedings went into high gear, the Judiciary Committee hired Joshua Matz of Kaplan Hecker & Fink, Kerry Tirrell of Sullivan & Cromwell, and Maggie Goodlander, a former Senate aide then at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom."
"Eisen writes that he and Berke, as well as Judiciary Committee attorneys Hariharan and Matt Morgan, began drafting potential articles of impeachment in August 2019, modeled after the articles passed against President Richard Nixon"
"Eisen writes of how he and Berke had ties to most, if not all, attorneys who represented figures and organizations in their sight lines as part of their Trump dealings."
"Eisen highlighted his connections to members of Trump’s defense team during the impeachment trial."
"Eisen even used his relationship with Mueller to play the special counsel in preparation for his testimony. But 'He had bags under his eyes and appeared more gaunt than I had ever seen him. He said, with hollow eyes, ‘Norm, I’d rather be anywhere else.’"
"Eisen is a senior fellow in Governance Studies at Brookings" normaneisen.com/bio

Brookings, Qatar, and Terrorism...
"The Brookings Institution bills itself as 'the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tank in the world,' but should it be?"

investigativeproject.org/4630/ipt-exclu…
"Brookings' long-term relationship with the Qatari government – a notorious supporter of terror in the Middle East – casts a dark cloud over such a lofty claim to credibility." jpost.com/Opinion/Qatar-…
"A September [2014] New York Times exposé revealed Qatar's status as the single largest foreign donor to the Brookings Institution."

nytimes.com/2014/09/07/us/…
"Qatar gave Brookings

$14.8 million in 2013
$100,000 in 2012
$2.9 million in 2011"

s3.documentcloud.org/documents/1284…
"In 2002, Qatar started subsidizing the Brookings outreach program to the Muslim World which has continues today.

"Between 2002 and 2010, Brookings never disclosed the annual amount of funds provided by the Government of Qatar."

investigativeproject.org/4630/ipt-exclu…
It seems like Eisen's interest in good governance stops when the money starts flowing.
"Resist," right Norm?
(End.)

9/16/2020 Notes from the war
I'm on the phone with a woman who tells me she was hassled on the train on the way to work.
She goes to work early, and because of Covid there is nobody on the train. Also because of Covid they have let the prisoners out of prison. This means the prisoners are on the train...alone with her.

"Definitions were changed and data ‘cooked'" - 10/27/2016

The CDC is being influenced by corporate and political interests thehill.com/blogs/pundits-…
The CDC is a collection of people. That is all.
Why did it take the CDC 3 months to start separating out deaths from Covid from deaths from flu & pneumonia?

Thread to explore the use of the word "lodestar," noticed in Strzok book.
The word "lodestar" was used in the "Anonymous" article published by the New York Times. This provoked much analysis. (This thread is not to discuss politics.) tennessean.com/story/news/pol…
Apparently the Vice President uses that word a lot.

A woman says to me today: "I don't believe in all this COVID stuff."

"Me either."

(Looking around as if she will get in trouble): "I think they just want to block Trump."

"Right."
It was uncanny. We both knew and agreed without having to say anything.
Now, the flip side is the signs where it says "dump Trump" and similar.

People absolutely deranged and brainwashed.
