CNN’s David Gergen Says US Well-Served by Diligent FBI: Is He Mentally Ill?
By Daily Bell Staff - July 07, 2016

How the FBI reached decision on Clinton investigation  … Clinton forces should have only one hand clapping … So far as we can now tell, the country in this instance has been well served by a leader and an FBI that has been diligent, hard-working and fair … The FBI seems to have gotten this one right. –David Gergen, CNN

David Gergen, a senior political analyst for CNN and “White House adviser to four presidents,” has written an editorial explaining why the FBI’s decision not to prosecute Hillary was “diligent and fair.”

He also makes the point that Clinton forces should not be enthusiastic about the FBI’s decision because she “could still lose in the court of public opinion.”

Gergen has appeared to us to have a touch of mental illness about him ever since we saw him confronted by Alex Jones in a video about his Bohemian Grove affiliations back in 2006, HERE.

The “illness” manifests itself in an absolute lack of understanding – an almost pathological dissociation –  about how to respond to what Jones is asking.

First he attempts to defend the Grove and its loony rituals. Then he accuses Jones of being dishonorable for “trespassing.” Finally he lectures Jones in a furious tone about his journalistic ethics.

It is quite a show.

In this article,  Gergen seems calmer. But no more accurate.

Let’s examine his points. He explains, for instance, that Hillary should not look on the lack of indictment as a real victory.

More:

Moments after FBI Director James Comey spoke, social media lit up with bitter accusations from Trump supporters and others that the system was rigged … Indeed, the more one studies the Comey statement, the more scathing it becomes — and the more suggestive that their decision on prosecution was a close call.

Comey meticulously disassembled the narrative that Clinton has been constructing for months. Gergen is most appreciative of Comey’s rigorous truthfulness in this regard.

And Gergen himself, sternly recites the reality of what Clinton did. She lied about almost every facet of her private server and the classified material stored on it.

He also says that Comey is obviously “revolted” by what Clinton did and that the same revulsion will be shared by much of the public.

It was a very close call, Gergen explains.

Gergen is convinced, or claims to be, that had a few more incriminating items turned up, Comey would have acted.

In fact, the “silver lining” of the investigation is that it was pursued “without fear or favor.” Comey “is regarded as a straight shooter by both sides of the aisle.”

Gergen is not alone in his evaluation of the close call that Hillary had. He cites a Washington Post reporter,  Jacob Gershman, who has come to the same conclusion.

“What is obvious is that to have a decision turn on such fine differences means that the FBI investigators themselves must have thought this wasn’t an easy case to resolve.”

The Clinton folks walked “right up to the edge of the law.”

Yes, and certainly – if convinced – Comey would have indicted her and handed the Justice Department a live grenade that would have blown up the Attorney General and likely Clinton too.

And then her Foundation.

And the Democratic Party.

And apparently Obama as well.

We doubt it. In fact, having now absorbed much of Gergen’s article, we find it incomprehensible.

There is the same “disconnect” that we noticed during his confrontation with Jones.

Gergen’s points are wrong or exaggerated, but he seems to believe that if he states them, readers will be persuaded. The mere words have such persuasive resonance.

Much of the disconnect actually comes from a lack of frame of reference. He doesn’t bother to tell you that intelligence agencies – and the FBI is a quasi-intelligence agency – were created by banking families several centuries ago.

At first they were informal networks but then, eventually, the costs were laid off on various nations. (That’s the way it always works.)

These intel agencies still apparently work for their initial founders, but they are organized in such a way as to conceal their true affiliations.

This would explain why intel agencies so often seem to be working at cross purposes with the nations they supposedly serve.

This Hillary decision is a good example. Not only did she commit numerous “crimes,” but she also works for the same people that Comey and Obama work for.

Hillary has been tapped to extend Obama’s legacy into the next four-to-eight years, just as Obama extended Bush’s policies.

This is why we believe that Hillary likely will win the presidency. This is why Comey had to make sure she would remain unscathed.

In a week, no one will remember Comey’s “scathing” evaluation of Hillary’s actions. They’ll only remember the obvious: She was acquitted.

Comey will be continually attacked over his decision and his reputation as a “straight shooter” will be undermined.

In any event, Comey is not a straight shooter. He works for an organization that carries out globalist goals under the disguise of being an American police organization.

In fact, the FBI is very obviously anti-American and has been from its probably unconstitutional founding. Hoover’s various pathologies made for great theater but ultimately contributed to a massive undermining of American freedom.

The FBI in fact is a relentlessly totalitarian organization that has as its goal the enforcement of ill-conceived legislation using all sorts of invasive and disgusting tactics: wiretapping, illegal deals with witnesses and even, apparently, the overt manufacturing of terrorist incidents to burnish its image and further terrify the American public.

A final note.

In an article entitled, “FBI Resignations: Where Are They?” Karl Ushanka reminds us that there was much speculation that many FBI agents would resign if Hillary was acquitted.

“Where are the FBI agent resignations?” he asks.  “Knowing the difference between right and wrong and the importance of having strong moral principles .. are universal values at the FBI.  Integrity also comes into play when you see a wrong.”

Conclusion: Well, we agree with Mr. Ushanka’s general statement but we do believe he has mis-characterized the FBI. We will be surprised if there are many resignations. It is a fairly thuggish organization dedicated to internationalism, corporatism, propaganda and show trials, a facility that has tortured the American people for three-quarters of a century. God-willing, as it continues to stumble in this Internet era and its manipulations become more publicly exposed, its influence will wane and it will begin to fall apart much as the KGB and the STASI finally did.

    “In a week, no one will remember Comey’s “scathing” evaluation of
    Hillary’s actions. They’ll only remember the obvious: She was acquitted.”

    I disagree with that. I think most people will remember that Comey used tortured logic in justifying Hillary’s acquittal. They now see Washington institutions as being corrupt and some of the “elites” to be above the law. His excuse that he had no evidence of her knowingly breaking the law is absurd, and itself a lie. She knew the private server was illegal (she signed a document that said so). She knew that some emails were classified because of their sources and/or contents. She knew she was lying to investigators when they questioned her. She knew she “destroyed” evidence by deleting some emails. Why wasn’t she indicted for any of that? Most people would have been screwed from doing just one of those things.

    This is just anecdotal but it could be telling. My step son and his girlfriend are “millenials” (around 29-30 years old now). Step son is mainly interested in marijuana legalization, and girlfriend is a “Bernie supporter” who thinks the reason “the US is so f—ed up is because it’s not fully communist.” (“Nobody has done communism right yet,” she argues.)

    Anyway, they both thought Clinton got off because the FBI let her off because of political pressure, pure and simple. Those are hard core Democrat voters (if they remember to vote.) If they’re for Trump in November – and I think they will be – I’ll remind them. Because of the internet they’re beginning to learn the real reasons that “the US is so f—ed up!”

    Of course he’s mentally ill, despite serving some republicans, he’s a socialist, he works for CNN [Communist News Network]

    Does any one know how the annual Bohemian Grove gathering is funded?

    • miro

      Its funded by a dude who looks just like the late actor Ernest Borgnine, except for the horns and elliptical pupils.

  • 2bvictorius

    Obama has in excess of one million (closer to two) militia comprised of members from former groups. Acorn. Black Panther party, and many others that still exist but, wearing a new label. All of those militia will be creating havoc at the November polls. The thugs at Trumps rally’s are likely from Obama’s militia.

    Gergen is a globalist piece of trash, a bootlicker to international bankers and inbred European royalty scumbags. But then again, so are the rest of his Council on Foreign Relations vermin. His job is to lie to the American people on behalf of his banker bosses.

    When the revolution comes, people like him will decorate many lamp posts and will be dragged behind many cars and trucks…

    • No talk of killing please.

      • Marten

        He is just talking about the”Vermins” !!!!!!!

      • Ephraiyim

        DB, I agree that talk of violent overthrow is NOT in the American people’s best interest. I recommend people go back and reread “A Tale of Two Cities”.
        Though there have been some accusations that
        Dickens’s was also connected to elitists, it still should bring chills to anyone suggesting or considering violence.
        I have great concern that any dissension against masses (individual thought and action) will lead to much less freedom overall if violence is brought into any revolution. History seems to be clear on this. We must be very careful about not getting caught up in these types of ruminations.
        There may , in future, some need for such discussion but this is not the time. Changing group think through our personal relationships is best for now.
        Love how DB attempts to rise above simple mass appeals for a more consistent and well thought out assessment of our historical and current events.
        Thank you DB

        • Thank you.

        • WinChll

          The Red Terror under the bolsheviks was more frightening.

      • WinChll

        Agree; this kind of rhetoric only plays into the hands of revolutionaries.
        It is interesting though, that Daddy Bush was quoted as saying if the Americans knew what we did, they would chase us down the street and hang us from lamp posts.

  • miro

    It could be argued that all insiders, and their spokesmen, are mentally ill. Gergen appears sharp; he knows Damn well he sells illusion for a living. Its also described as ” a loss of soul”…he reeks of it. What do they have on him?

    • Samarami

      Insightful. Sam

    • WinChll

      The social engineering program has been very effective on the ruling class.

  • MetaCynic

    I wonder how Clinton’s rabid political and media allies will spin the event if the Russians post the contents of Clinton’s server on the internet to announce to the whole world that Clinton’s “extreme carelessness” in handling state secrets was not benign. In their reality denying zeal, they will most likely all descend further into insanity, blaming Trump and angry white, misogynistic males for Clinton’s crimes. And the call for more gun control will once again go out!

    • Praetor

      The Russians are already paid off with uranium mines. Those emails will be held for a future need. The Clintons are not the only one good at blackmail!!!

      • MetaCynic

        I’m afraid that if Hillary makes it into the Oval Office, no sort of blackmail from any source will get traction. She will rule with an iron fist and be truly untouchable while laboring to carry out the globalists’ agenda. The Russians can’t be faulted for fearing that bloodthirsty Hillary will trigger WW3. Therefore it’s reasonable to assume that whatever they may have on her will be disclosed before the election in the hope that it would help the relatively anti war candidate, Trump,

        • WinChll

    Conclusion: Well, we agree with Mr. Ushanka’s
    general statement but we do believe he has mis-characterized

    I’ve said a number of times: it’s a fun time to be alive. I’m committed to stay alive and alert to be in a position to see how this crazy-making will turn out. It shouldn’t take that long after this fall’s bread-and-circus event climaxes.

    Any of the deep-readers of DB must recognize that we’re dealing here with superstition and mystification in “high places” (“high” in the minds of the non deep-readers). It’s obvious that these are all folks with severe mental disorders.

    The unwashed masses are catching on. Slowly. Sam

    When one sells his soul what do you expect.

  • EDD

    Comey: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a
    person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences…To the
    contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or
    administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”

    How much plainer can it get than this. Read and re-read
    his statement. Anyone else doing what she has done would be prosecuted
    to the full extent of TPTB’s laws. You and I would not get a slap on the wrist, we wouldn’t see the outside of the bars ever again. Heck, we might even deserve solitary confinement.

    It would be well to have his statement in the news every day. Then maybe, just maybe, a lot of people might wake up to the obvious. Then again, maybe not. Anyone who is not a pawn of the elite would be incarcerated immediately.

  • Praetor

    Gergen is a jerk-n the public again with partisan political opinion, another stooge for the man.

    The email are more than likely about the Clinton Foundation, this is where the real crimes are being committed.

    Doesn’t seem the U.S. Gov can keep a secret, everyone knows what their doing, so, not so big a deal!!!

  • rahrog

    Is that gun fire I hear?

  • disqussted999

    “pathological dissociation” is absolutely the correct diagnosis. We expect certain characteristics of sociopaths, and Gergen doesn’t seem to fit the mold because he normally is mild-mannered, cultured, and seems like a “nice guy.” Baloney…he is just as sociopathic, just as conscienceless, as the next Deep State insider…that’s why he has “served” four presidents–b/c he is one of the Deep State’s messengers, one who “serves” their edicts to our so-called “elected” leaders.

    And once again, how many ways can even this sociopath tell us how guilty Clinton is as charged while maintaining that justice was done? As you state, Gergen “himself, sternly recites the reality of what Clinton did. She lied about almost every facet of her private server and the classified material stored on it”…”Clinton forces should not be enthusiastic about the FBI’s decision because she ‘could still lose in the court of public opinion’ ”…”had a few more incriminating items turned up, Comey would have acted” [what, 1289 counts against her isn’t enough??…they really needed 1300???]…”The Clinton folks walked ‘right up to the edge of the law’” [and then what?…the AG declined to do her job and declare that they had clearly stepped over that edge and the FBI moved the edge back to 1300 counts?…or perhaps they simply created a gilded bridge over troubled waters, ie, THE LAW, and declared their criminal activities non-punishable].

    How totally revolting and terrifying–what clearer proof can there be that this is no longer a nation under the Law…unless you’re one of the sheep, of course, then there is no recourse…you are under ALL the laws, even the ones you don’t know about…and there are MANY. “All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” We are a country of wolves, attack dogs, and sheep, and I suppose the fourth category would be sheep who have enough money and position to buy off a wolf or two…for now.

  • WinChll

    “…social media lit up with bitter accusations from Trump supporters…”

    Perhaps Gergen’s dislike of Trump is the basis of his “opinion”.
