Summer Of Trump III: Purge GOPe, Attack Big Media, Win!

Summer of Trump III was a replay of Summer of Trump II and Summer of Trump I. Remember? Summer of Trump I and II began with predictions of “it’s over for Trump” and Big Media chortled that no one could even survive the no good/bad/horrible death dealing circumstances. Then Trump triumphed.

We remember it all very well. Our analyses of Summer of Trump I, II, and III were all the same. We looked at the Big Media narrative, then we looked at reality, we predicted the Trump triumphs.

During Summer of Trump I , on September 8, 2015 we described reality as we saw it and while Big Media declared “it’s over for Trump”:

If the GOP establishment does not blow up Donald J. Trump before the Second GOP debate on September 16, it might well be over and Mr. Donald J. Trump will be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. The hostile takeover will be complete.

Are we premature? Is it too early to declare the very real, very authentic Donald J. Trump the winner before one vote has been cast? The latest polls convince us that it is not too early but rather too late to stop Trump.

In December of 2015 we played endless summer music to celebrate the first Summer of Trump.

In July 2016, Summer of Trump II, during the GOP convention that nominated Trump we wrote:

Today, like every Summer of Trump day, will not be any different. Donald J. Trump will be wearing board shorts, hair slicked back, Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses halfway down his nose, Hawaiian shirt open to his navel, flip-flops on – his feet firmly planted on a surfboard riding the zeitgeist wave. [snip]

Surf on zeitgeist wave surfer dude, surf on! Make America Safe Again after the past year and the past few weeks is zeitgeist ocean Yoda beach party dude. The zeitgeist wave is building for Trump

Earlier this Summer of Trump III we wrote:

Obama Dimocrats did not count on President Trump trumping. Obama Dimocrats thought that President Trump would avoid mention of the GA6 race because President Trump would never want to get involved in a race that had everything against him. Obama Dimocrats had tens of millions, a young male candidate to attack a not so young woman, enthusiasm from the Obama Dimocrat left as well as the Bernie Sanders Socialist left, and Big Media and the rest of the party were all in to defeat the hapless Karen Handel who barely came in first in the crowded GOP primary.

Then, Trump tweeted and triumphed.

Once Again, against the polls, Big Media, the GOP establishment, the Deep State, the Obama Dimocrat big dollar donors, leftist thugs, assassins, pajama boys, NeverTrumpers, and everyone who did not vote for candidate Trump in November 2016 – Trump triumphed.

Lessons? This election was essentially meaningless. The goal was to separate the GOP leadership, RINOs and WHINOs from President Trump and that has once again failed because Trump voters love to Trump! Trump! Trump! The only lasting lesson from this election we can think of is one we wrote about years ago. [snip]

If Trump voters stick with President Trump then the GOP leadership has to stick with President Trump and the 2016 elections are a rerun. Obama Dimocrats can’t get the voters they disparage daily.



We’ve been correct in our analysis because we look at reality, not Big Media’s version of their delusions.

This Summer of Trump III once again we heard “it’s over for Trump”. Swine GOP establishment types like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell stabbed President Donald J. Trump in the back repeatedly as did some of President Trump’s cabinet members. Yet again, Big Media chortled, “it’s over for Trump” this time for real, really.

So what really happened in Summer of Trump III? Did the Charlottesville nonsense hurt President Trump? Did Hurricane Harvey knock out the Trumpnado? Did North Korea nuke President Trump? Did the GOP establishment depose President Trump? Did the Obama Dimocrats come one step closer to a glorious win in 2018 then 2020? Did the eclipse blot out President Trump? HA!

We’ll present the news Big Media is terrified to discuss. Remember as we discuss reality, that Summer of Trump III was supposed to be the death of President Trump because he could not survive the treachery of the GOP establishment and because everyday Republicans and Republican elected officials would run away from President Trump in fear of massive election losses in 2018 as voters turned against President Trump. Also remember our predictions in May of this year of big GOP victories in 2018 and the big reelection victory of President Trump in 2020.

Let’s start with the Obama Dimocrats. These kooks and klowns should be doing great if the narrative that President Trump is in any trouble whatsoever is in any way accurate. How are the Obama Dimocrats doing?

That bloated sack of feces from Canada, Michael Moore agrees with us that “Trump is on track to win again in 2020“. So much for “it’s over for Trump.”

Money? Citing the transgender order, Mitch McConnell’s attacks, “Trump’s crashing popularity”, and other absurdities, Big Media cannot understand why the Republicans are flush with cash from low dollar donors and the Obama Dimocrats can’t buy a shoelace with their failed fundraising efforts.

It’s not just us. The Vatican of Obama Dimocrats, the Big Pink hating 538 blog has predictions of what will happen in 2018. That Obama Dimocrat website revered by the leftist kooks predicts that the best Obama Dimocrats can hope for in 2018 is, well, read it and cry tears of laughter:

A new analysis, published by FiveThirtyEight, shows the congressional map for the 2018 midterm elections has a record-setting pro-GOP bias, which could mean more winning for President Donald Trump and his Republican party. [snip]

Even if Democrats were to win every single 2018 House and Senate race for seats representing places that Hillary Clinton won or that Trump won by less than 3 percentage points — a pretty good midterm by historical standards — they could still fall short of the House majority and lose five Senate seats.

So, under the best scenario, Obama Dimocrats can’t win the House of Representatives and the Republicans will be very close to 60 votes in the Senate, says 538 to the kooks.

The Cook Political Report, at the height of “it’s over for Trump” this Summer of Trump III likewise sees Obama Dimocrats in trouble, even Joe Manchin of West Virginia who has tried to pretend he is not an Obama Dimocrat even as he votes like an Obama Dimocrat.

Our prediction is the GOP maintains control of the House and the Senate GOP will have more than 60 seats. The Obama Dimocrats will have to defend 25 seats and the Republicans 8 seats, so even though midterm elections usually go badly for the party in power, we’ve never had a midterm with trump, Trump, trump. Add to all this goat’s head soup the fact that many of the Obama Dimocrats will run in states that President Trump won while the Republicans will also run in states that President Trump won, and, well, reality is easy to predict for us.

But, but, but, what about Barack Obama? Won’t Barack Obama save the Obama Dimocrats from President Trump??? Um, no, says that well known Obama Dimocrat Howard Dean. Barack Obama, says Howard Dean, is the kiss of death:



It’s long been over for the flim-flam con man Barack Obama!!!

As to the GOP establishment and President Trump, the outcome of this fight bodes well for President Trump too. We previously wrote about #DitchMitch and the battles to come with the GOP establishment. It’s happening:

Trump Divorces the GOP Congress [snip]

This would explain Mr. Trump’s recent gibes at Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate’s health-care failure. On Thursday he broadened the indictment to include blaming Mr. McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, in advance, for trouble raising the federal debt ceiling when Congress returns in September.

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board writes that President Trump will be the one to suffer and that attacking the GOP establishment finks will prevent President Trump from fulfilling his agenda. But what is President Trump’s agenda? The GOP establishment wants the agenda to be tax cuts for corporations and not much else. The GOP establishment does not want to build the wall nor stop illegal immigration. The GOP establishment does not want what President Trump wants.

The Trump agenda the GOP establishment does not like is the one the Trump voters want. What is the Trump agenda? First, attack and destroy the America hating Big Media that believes they are the masters of the people. Second, attack and destroy the political establishment that has failed. That’s the real Trump agenda. Tax cuts and all the other “policy” proposals fall under the details of what to do once Big Media is destroyed and the political establishment has been overturned.

The GOP establishment must be destroyed and President Trump is the one to do it:

The Memo: Trump allies say he needs a GOP scalp

Republicans on Capitol Hill lament President Trump’s aggressive behavior toward them, but some people in the president’s orbit are urging him to up the ante even further.

They say that, far from making nice, Trump needs to instill fear so that lawmakers do not feel at liberty to thwart him.

“Most members of Congress are arrogant, and until a scalp is actually taken they are going to continue to be defiant,” longtime Trump friend Roger Stone told The Hill. “All he needs to do is punish one incumbent and I think you’d see a sea-change.”

He is 100 percent correct to go after McCain, Flake, Murkowksi,” said Sam Nunberg, who worked as an aide to Trump’s 2016 campaign. [snip]

Steve Bannon, recently ousted as Trump’s chief strategist, does not appear to be in a compromising mood, however. He promised to keep up his own attacks on McConnell in an interview published by The Economist on Friday.

“I’m going to light him up,” Bannon said.

Trump himself seems in no particular mood to declare a truce.

“The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed! That should NEVER have happened!” the president wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

A New York Times story the previous day had reported that Trump and McConnell had not spoken to each other “in weeks” and that McConnell had “privately expressed uncertainty that Mr. Trump will be able to salvage his administration after a series of summer crises.” [snip]

And the president took aim at Corker, who had publicly called his “stability” and “competence” into question.

“Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in ’18. Tennessee not happy!” Trump tweeted on Friday morning. [snip]

There are even some internal party critics of Trump’s, however, who don’t dismiss his words out of hand.

Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s syndicated radio show on Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said of Trump, “He’s running against Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and others. The Congress is very unpopular, particularly with the Republican base, so there’s nothing unhinged about it. It’s a political strategy that I’m not so sure is smart, but it’s a very thought-out strategy. There’s nothing crazy about it.” [snip]

Stone argued that Trump is “far more popular and more influential with Republican primary voters than any members of Congress and any member of the United States Senate, and he has enormous leverage to go into party primaries.” [snip]

If those sentiments might be met with consternation on Capitol Hill, they are firmly endorsed by some among the conservative grassroots.

“Really, the Republican leadership in the House and the Senate needs to get behind President Trump and his agenda,” said Jenny Beth Martin, the president and co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots. “I think it is fair for him to shed light on what is really happening on Capitol Hill.

“The voters voted for Donald Trump to be a sledgehammer and a wrecking ball to Washington, D.C.,” she added.

Kick the tires and light the fires! Summer of Trump is not over.

Paul Ryan has done nothing to help President Trump. Every time Paul Ryan sees an opportunity to attack President Trump he does so. John McCain, like Paul Ryan also delights in attacks against President Trump as they both did after President Trump wisely pardoned Joe Arpaio.

How wonderful to hear then, after the attacks on the Arpaio pardon that Joe Arpaio might repay the favor and run against GOP establishment stooge Jeff Flake. Flake and the NeverTrump kooks are in trouble:

Flake’s in big trouble — The Arizona GOP Senate primary is still about a year away. But the prospect that Sen. Jeff Flake won’t make it out of the GOP primary is looking very real. Two polls conducted since Trump ripped into Flake on Twitter have Flake trailing Kelli Ward by double digits. Flake hasn’t led in a single primary poll taken at any point since last November.

Maybe Heller is too — Republican Sen. Dean Heller could also be in trouble. JMC Analytics released a poll this week of the Nevada GOP Senate primary. It found Heller (who’s had a lukewarm relationship with Trump) losing to Danny Tarkanian (a perennial Republican candidate and big-time Trump backer) 39 percent to 31 percent. Heller answered this survey by releasing his own internal poll showing him up 55 percent to 33 percent. The truth is probably somewhere in between.

Fu*k Flake!

The Hill has some wet fingers feeling the winds of 2018:

The 2018 Senate map heavily favors Republicans, who will only defend eight seats, including just two of which are considered vulnerable right now. By comparison, Democrats have to defend 25 seats, including 10 in states that Trump won in 2016. [snip]

Here are the seven most vulnerable Senate seats of the 2018 midterm elections as they stand now.

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) [snip]

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.)

McCaskill is one of the few statewide Democratic officeholders left in Missouri, which Trump won by 19 points in November. [snip]

Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.)

Donnelly leveraged a bipartisan approach to politics and his blue-collar appeal into a Senate seat in 2012, but he’ll have to fight yet another tough battle if he wants to keep his Senate seat in a state Trump won by 19 points. [snip]

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)

Flake wouldn’t rank this high in a normal election year, but a Republican president threatening to support a primary challenge to an incumbent GOP senator isn’t normal, either. [snip]

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.)

In 2016, West Virginia went for Trump by a larger margin than any other state – 42 points. [snip]

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.)

Heitkamp hails from another deep-red state – North Dakota went for Trump by about 36 points. [snip]

Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.)

Republicans have a lot to like about their Montana prospects. Trump won the state by more than 20 points in November, and Republican Greg Gianforte just won the state’s at-large congressional seat in a special election even after he assaulted a reporter. [snip]

There are five other Democrats running in states Trump won – Sens. Bill Nelson (Fla.), Bob Casey Jr. (Pa.), Tammy Baldwin (Wis.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio). These five do not yet seem as vulnerable as the others, but the races could move up the rankings depending on how primaries shake out.

Florida Republicans are in a holding pattern as Gov. Rick Scott (R) weighs a bid, since his entry would immediately clear the field and give Nelson a top-tier challenger. Casey and Baldwin are waiting to see how the large GOP primary fields taking them on shake out.

Musician Kid Rock is mulling a bid against Stabenow. And Brown could face a rematch against his 2012 opponent, state treasurer Josh Mandel, but some state Republicans aren’t excited about his campaign and are looking for other options.

President Donald J. Trump will be a powerful, if not determinative voice, in these primary and general elections. It won’t be the GOP that will win in 2018. President Donald J. Trump will win in 2018 and 2020.

Summer of Trump never ends.

@RealDonaldTrump At War: Afghanistan, Arizona, Flake, Ducey, McCain, #DitchMitch, Kelli Ward

Update II: President Trump at the American Legion convention:

——————————————————

Update: President Trump in Arizona! The medium is the message:

——————————————————–

The medium is the message. Monday night President Donald J. Trump in a nationally televised speech in front of American troops and top government officials announced his strategy to kill terrorists in Afghanistan. Tuesday night in Arizona President Donald J. Trump will visit with American troops in Arizona then go to a big rally with Vice President Mike Pence alongside him in Arizona.

The medium is the message. President Trump in Arizona is sending a very big message because he is in Arizona. The targets of President Donald J. Trump are Arizona Governor Ducey, Senator John McCain, and Senator Jeff Flake.

Let’s start with Governor Ducey as Trump Target #2:

Gov. Doug Ducey will greet President Donald Trump on the tarmac after Air Force One touches down Tuesday afternoon for his first presidential visit to the Grand Canyon state.

But the Republican governor, who like many in the GOP has diplomatically sidestepped Trump and his more divisive rhetoric, will not attend Trump’s campaign-style rally at the Phoenix Convention Center. [snip]

Richard Herrera, an Arizona State University associate professor of political science, said Ducey’s decision illustrates the Trump tightrope he walks as the governor prepares a 2018 reelection bid.

Herrera said the governor is trying to strike a balance between Republican voters who ardently support Trump, and those who vehemently oppose him.

If Ducey avoided Trump altogether, he could alienate voters he will need next year. And if he joined the president at the rally, Herrera said, he could leave some voters with the impression he supports all of the president’s views. [snip]

“The upside is that for supporters of Trump, he makes a gesture of being close to the president,” Herrera said. “The upside is that he doesn’t have to be in full public view at the rally.

“The negative side is it may not be enough for either group,” he added.

Just by being in Arizona, President Donald J. Trump puts Governor Pucey Ducey on notice that Trump supporters will not vote for this wucey. This Ducey character encouraged Senator McCain to preserve ObamaCare with his vote against ObamaCare repeal in the Senate. Ducey better get a ticket on the TrumpTrain or he will find himself on the tracks with the mighty Trump engine over him.

Arizona Governor Ducey should look at the latest polls from Kentucky for a clue to his reelection bid.

Remember how many in the GOP establishment and Big Media thought President Trump made a big mistake by attacking Senator Mitch McConnell which led to McConnell attacking President Trump? President Trump is at 60% approval in Kentucky and Mitch McConnell is at 18% approval in his home state. Yeah, 18% for Mitch. Add to that Republican voters now very unhappy with the Republican congress and it is time for these losers to buy a clue.

Guess who else is at 18% approval? Yup, President Trump hater, Jeff Flake, who is up for reelection in 2018 is at 18% approval in Arizona.

Jeff Flake needs President Trump even more because Flakey is in lots of trouble with conservatives even as Flakey calls himself the keeper of the flame for conservatives:

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Tuesday unloaded on Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake, mocking him in a Twitter post as an “imposter” posing as a conservative.

“Jeff Flake is not a conservative, nor does he have a conscience,” Bozell said, slamming Flake by using the title of his new book “Conscience of a Conservative” — a nod to Barry Goldwater’s 1960 work that was ghost-written by Bozell’s late father.

“On behalf of my late father and my family, I am denouncing Senator Jeff Flake and his new book, dishonestly titled, ‘Conscience of a Conservative,'” Bozell wrote in a posted statement. [snip]

“The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his ‘book,’ that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain. I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this imposter, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms,” the Twitter post maintained.

While promoting his news book, Flake told CBS News’ “Face The Nation” the GOP had “lost its way” and given in to “nativism and protectionism.”

He also slammed the party in a commentary for Politico Magazine last month, criticizing the GOP for “creating” and “rationalizing” President Donald Trump.

Jeff Flake has repeatedly attacked President Trump. Jeff Flake believed that along with Senator McCain and Governor Ducey he could attack President Trump and still be reelected. As if!

John McCain is popular with Obama Dimocrats but not Republicans. John McCain will not help Flake in the Republican primary. Governor Ducey will be too busy in a fight for his own survival so he won’t be much help to Flake either. Governor Ducey and Senator Flake need President Trump, not John McCain.

Just by being in Arizona, President Donald J. Trump slaps Jeff Flake in the face. Jeff Flake needs President Trump but President Trump does not need Jeff Flake. There is another. Her name is Kelli Ward:

Top Trump donor ponies up to take out Flake

Robert Mercer is donating $300,000 to a super PAC backing Kelli Ward, who is running against the GOP senator in a primary next year.

One of Donald Trump’s most generous political benefactors is providing a six-figure donation to a super PAC devoted to unseating Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who has been fiercely critical of the president.

Robert Mercer, a reclusive hedge fund billionaire who was intimately involved in Trump’s rise and helped to bankroll his 2016 campaign, is contributing $300,000 to a super PAC supporting former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who is challenging Flake in a Republican primary next year.

It’s the latest sign that Trump’s political machine is preparing to take on Flake, whose persistent attacks have angered the president. The White House has met with Ward and two other Republicans who are mulling primary challenges to the Arizona senator, state Treasurer Jeff DeWit and former state GOP Chairman Robert Graham.

A longtime Trump critic, Flake has made waves with the release of his new book, “Conscience of a Conservative.” He argues that his party is in denial about the Trump presidency and blames the GOP for his rise. Over the past week, Flake has launched a national TV tour in which he’s made the case that his party has taken the wrong course.

During the 2016 campaign, Flake refused to endorse Trump and called on him to withdraw after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape, in which Trump was heard boasting about groping women. The senator refused to attend the GOP convention, saying that he had to stay home to mow his lawn.

His jabs rankled candidate Trump, who at one point said that he would be willing to spend $10 million of his own money to defeat Flake in a 2018 primary.

And during a press briefing last week, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to rule out the possibility that the president would help finance an anti-Flake primary effort.

If we were suspicious types we would think that the Steve Bannon resignation and that five hour meeting with Robert Mercer as Bannon prepared to leave the White House job after his August 7 resignation had something to do with all this. We expect Trump supporters, Steve Bannon, Robert Mercer, are all united in taking down politically, the flakeity flake Jeff Flake.

Tonight. Trump. Arizona. 2018. 2020. War!

Nothing New Happened: #Charlottesville, #Barcelona, #Bannon, #Breitbart

Yawn. Nothing new happened this past week. Once again the once again once again repeated and repeated. Nothing new.

Big Media headlines of the past week continue to vomit the headlines of wish-casting. “It’s over for Trump!” “Trump in Turmoil!” “Trump voters abandon Trump!” “Trump did something outrageous!”

So what “happened” this past week? Race-baiters in Charlottesville race-baited. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and was attacked by the totalitarian Left. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and Big Media attacked him. President Donald J. Trump told the truth and the Republican establishment attacked President Trump. Muslim terrorists attacked innocents in Barcelona but the “Muslim” component of the headline is removed by Big Media. President Donald J. Trump beat the sh*t out of North Korea. Steve Bannon was fired from the White House and all the news headlines merged into one.

Let’s start with Steve Bannon. We knew it was over for Steve Bannon the moment we read an article Roger Stone published on Thursday:

Steven K. Bannon, the swashbuckling former Goldman Sachs banker and press baron of Breitbart news who calls himself “Chief Strategist” of Trump’s historic campaign, is in deep trouble within the Trump White House.

To be clear, I am no fan of National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster whose globalist views and hires are negating the foreign policy the President ran on.

I am one who had publicly defended Bannon from false charges of racism and anti-Semitism yet I have concluded he is a spent force, never being willing to spend his political capital to help his friends and in some cases helping empower the very Globalists he claims to oppose. [snip]

It is more in sadness than in anger that I conclude that Steve Bannon has failed to look out for the Trump constituency, while establishment “never Trumpers ” line up for cushy jobs and prestigious ambassadorships. Not understanding that “personnel is policy”, Bannon refused to fight for any of his allies or those who helped get Trump elected. It’s as if Steve felt the grubby business of patronage was below him.

Self-promotion and ham-handed leaking have hurt Steve badly in the Trump orbit. There is no Karl Rove in Trump-World. Trump is his own man. He is not handled or managed and hates it when subordinates try to do so. He is his own strategist and correctly resents when others take credit for the historic strategy and win, that is really his alone. [snip]

In all fairness, all of the key elements of the message that elected Trump had been chosen and defined by Trump himself long before Mr. Bannon arrived at the Trump campaign for the final weeks of the campaign.

The able Sam Nunberg worked diligently with candidate Trump to help him package his views during the earliest stages of the campaign and Trump road-tested these themes and honed them. He never deviated from these core messages; the dangers of our immigration system and the Wall; the inequities at NATO; our flawed international trade deals that he saw destroying the American job market; the abuses of America by the Chinese, fixing our broken Veteran’s healthcare system; opposition to costly foreign wars where the national interest is not absolutely clear. These were all planks in the Trump platform before Steve showed up. [snip]

It was always Trump’s campaign. [snip]

The Trump State Department has failed to excise the Soros control of a number of U.S. embassies and is currently leaning on the Hungarian government not to impede Soros toppling of that democratically elected government. Bannon delivered the Trump State Department into the hands of the Globalists.

While Bannon chafed with the influence of Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, he would never oppose him frontally and he never even lifted a finger against the appointment of quislings like Dina Habib Powell and Goldman Sachs’ Gary Cohn.

Bannon failed to push the President to use his most potent rhetorical and political weapon-Term Limits -in his current fight with the Congress. Bannon did nothing to dissuade the President from endorsing Mitch McConnell’s candidate in the Alabama Special Election primary which sent the clear signal to Republicans in Congress that you can thwart the President and there are no consequences.

Bannon has also failed to tell the President about the single most potent weapon he has; FISA Court certification that Obama’s NSA actively, illegally and unconstitutionally spied at least on 30,000 Americans for purposes of political espionage. These indictable offenses and their prosecution is the key to derailing the Deep State coup unfolding before our eyes, yet Bannon never mentioned the FISA ruling to the President.

When Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was a strong and articulate supporter of the President and his criticism of our current Immigration policies, was indicted for civil rights violations of prisoners in his custody the Obama Justice Department made certain he was tried under the wrong statue to deny him a jury trial. The Justice Department illegally monitored the Sheriffs communication with his lawyer as well as improperly communicating directly with the judge during his trial Arpaio’s prosecution is a political hit job and the government’s misconduct in his prosecution are certainly grounds for dismissal by the Trump Justice Department. Steve Bannon never mentioned the case to President who was shocked to learn about Arpaio’s conviction when he didn’t know about his trial. All of Arpaio’s phone calls to Bannon to protest his treatment by the Trump Justice Department went unanswered. [snip]

There is no reason for conservatives to be upset about the coming purge of Steve Bannon. He did a lot to help himself but not much to help us.

We don’t think Steve Bannon is the demon loser Roger Stone paints him out to be. But for us Steve Bannon had to go the moment he gave an interview to The American Prospect:

Contrary to Trump’s threat of fire and fury, Bannon said: “There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.”

At that point Bannon lost us. Steve Bannon mocked President Donald J. Trump and his latest steps to euthanize North Korea and mocked President Trump’s efforts. Good-bye Steve Bannon. As Roger Stone said of President Trump, “He makes his own decisions. He also will make wholesale changes if he thinks things aren’t going well.” Corey Lewandowski, Paul Manafort, countless others have learned this lesson before.

The bottom line for us is that as an advisor Steve Bannon contributed very little other than the gloss of support from outlets such as Breitbart. We also did not like the obvious leaks from Bannon. President Trump should fire all the leakers at the White House even if they happen to be family. The only leaks that should happen are leaks the President authorizes.

The best thing for President Trump and Steve Bannon is for Steve Bannon to go back to Breitbart and fight the war he never fought inside the White House. All of which he has done or promises to do:

Bannon Says He’s `Going to War for Trump’ After White House Exit

Ousted White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon returned to the conservative Breitbart News website on Friday and said he’ll be “going to war” for President Donald Trump, vowing to intensify from the outside the fight he has waged against opponents of his brand of populist conservatism.

“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon said Friday in an interview with Bloomberg News hours after his departure was announced.

Bannon led the evening editorial meeting at Breitbart, where he resumed his role as executive chairman, the website said in a statement.

Steve Bannon was a wasted resource at the White House. Now Bannon can attack the GOP establishment and not look like an agent of the President. We want Bannon to agitate. Bannon now is free and therefore more powerful. Bannon should now focus his fire on McConnell and Ryan, the treacherous two.

Steve Bannon resigned on August 7. This resignation came before the Charlottesville race-baiting.

President Donald J. Trump is not blameless. President Trump must take the full blame for his actions. President Donald J. Trump is to blame for telling the truth. Every time President Donald J. Trump tells the truth he gets in trouble. Keep on telling the truth Mr. President.

On Charlottesville President Trump blamed the violence on both sides in the prelude to the coming civil war that increasingly is not only likely, but necessary. President Trump is entirely correct. The right wing demonstrators who legally rallied were a small minority. The totalitarian leftists that started the violence and attacked the demonstrators did what they always do. Nothing new here.

Leftist organizations and publications have recently begun to debate the question of leftist violence. For these leftists the question is whether leftist violence has the effect of helping the right wing.

Leftist violence hurts the left and any dolt who does not understand that simple equation we refer to some of our previous articles on Chicago 1968 as well as the debates between Martin Luther King and leftist hero Malcolm X who advocated violence. Dr. King chided Malcontent X that the guys with the guns were on the other side. End of story.

The totalitarian left does have a strategy. It’s one we have referenced before ad nauseum. The strategy of the totalitarian left is to separate President Donald J. Trump from his supporters:

The Democratic party, for now a politically powerless bystander, is using its media allies to fight its future battles. The ultimate aim is to disillusion the 2016 Trump voters in the erstwhile “Democratic blue wall” in upcoming elections. The real world political fight as far as the presidency is concerned is in the Electoral College battleground states. The stark truth is that the vast majority of states will nearly always vote the same way in the next election. Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and of course Florida will decide the presidency in 2020.

The leftist strategy will fail, as we predicted earlier this year.

Add to the many Obama Dimocrats already about to lose their reelection runs to the Senate the potential loss now of Senator Menendez who will soon face trial and will be replaced by a Chris Christie appointment. Add the growing scandals the Obama Dimocrats face regarding the three Muslim brothers protected by House Dimocrats.

Trump voters? Even the L.A. Times in their polls see the evidence that Trump supporters remain Trump supporters. The “polls” will show a dip in Trump support as some Trump supporters “go underground” for safety with their Trump support as the totalitarian leftist hate boils and bubbles. But as in 2016 Trump supporters will be Trump voters in 2018 and 2020.

There is also Barcelona. Another Muslim terror attack on the West. This will drive the vote in 2016 and 2020. The Obama Dimocrats will run on anti-Trump hate and no agenda other than leftist lunacy on social issues. President Trump will run on Make America Great Again in 2020. His greatest ally will be reality and history. Everything old is new again.

Get Your Hot @RealDonaldTrump Polls Here – Plus Sessions, Schumer, Sh*t

Alright, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT ABOUT EVERYTHING BELOW. We don’t want you to wake up the totalitarian left to anything we write here. Plus – We’ve got answers for you on why President Donald J. Trump is upping his push on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to quit – and answers on the Senate repeal ObamaCare vote. As a special bonus we will have a good laugh at “The Better Deal” of Obama Dimocrats which is related to all this and everything we have written since 2007.

First, hold on a few minutes while we once again gloat.

On May 5 of this year, while everyone else was moaning and groaning about the horrible Big Media news coverage of Russia, Kushner, Manafort, Sessions, etc. and forecasts of Trump impeachment or irrelevance, and disaster for the GOP and Trump in 2018 and 2020, we made our own prediction contrary to all that blather. We predicted a Trump reelection victory in 2020 and a GOP victory in the congressional elections of 2018:

It’s not to early for us to declare that President Donald J. Trump will be reelected in 2020. We already know his officially trademarked campaign slogan for 2020. [snip]

Obama Dimocrats will make it much easier for President Trump to be reelected. Obama Dimocrats will run on “time for a change” in 2018 and 2020. The screams and howls of “time for a change” from Obama Dimocrats will doom them and reelect President Trump. Why? How? [snip]

It will be the Kooks versus the “normals” in the Dimocrat primaries and the Kooks will win every time. [snip]

By the time the general elections in 2018 roll in, the “normals” that have been duped into running as Obama Dimocrats in the primaries will be aborted. The new “normals” in the general election will be Republicans who will run against the Obama full tilt Kooks that won their primaries.

Yup! Years before the 2016 elections came we predicted the 2016 elections would be a change election and that if Hillary Clinton wanted to win she had to be the candidate of change. Hillary ignored us and Hillary failed. In 2020 the election will be a “stay the course” election. President Trump will be reelected.

Let’s get to the news. We’ve already explained how much we like Attorney General Jeff Sessions and why he is such a great disappointment that needs to go. We haven’t explained why President Trump continues to schlong the AG.


Um, recess appointment. Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to resign early in August so that when the congress goes on the latest of their many vacations President Trump can recess appoint a new Attorney General that will fiercely attempt to stop leaks from all the federal employees doing Obama’s bidding.

The U.S. Senate has a lot to do for the remainder of this year (and can barely get the minimum done) so we hope President Trump recess appoints hundreds, if not thousands of appointees.

That explanation out of the way let’s deal with why the GOP wins in 2018.

Leftist San Francisco ex-Mayor Willie Brown agrees with us that President Trump is “winning”:

Failure? Trump is beating Democrats left and right

Democrats are handing President Trump a big fat “F” for his six months in office, but in this case the “F” may stand for frustration.

No matter what you think of Trump’s policies or personality, he has beaten Democrats on every angle.

The stock market is up. Unemployment is down.

And Trump has gotten nearly every nominee he wanted, including Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, which was absolutely critical to fulfilling the Republican agenda.

Even his inability to repeal Obamacare has turned into a backhanded win for Trump, if for no other reason than that it’s freed him from having to come up with a workable alternative, which he clearly does not have.

Like it or not, he’s doing what his supporters wanted him to do: make a lot of noise, hit the brakes on the Democratic agenda and keep them entertained.

Willie Brown wrote that before the Senate voted to proceed with ObamaCare repeal and replace. Perhaps ObamaCare repeal and replace will really happen after all.

But Willie Brown’s analysis is “entertainment”. The real evidence of a GOP win in 2018 is particularly staggering because it comes from one of the most respected Democrat pollsters.

Big Media wants to continue the misinformation campaign against President Trump alive. That’s why Big Media has ignored the polls that matter. Our comments section already discussed the Reuters poll that twisted the results to make it appear as if President Trump is losing support amongst Trump supporters:

In May, 82 percent of Trump voters said they would vote for him again. In July, that number jumped to 88 percent.

Reuters continues to distort data to publish headlines which attack President Trump. That’s the tactic Big Media employed in 2016. That the tactic Big Media failed with and which made Donald J. Trump president in 2016.

Why does Big Media continue to distort data and lie? Big Media understands that it is imperative to separate President Trump from Trump supporters. Only by convincing Trump supporters to abandon President Trump can the left win. As we wrote in June:

If Trump voters stick with President Trump then the GOP leadership has to stick with President Trump and the 2016 elections are a rerun. Obama Dimocrats can’t get the voters they disparage daily.

That’s the point. If Trump voters stick with Trump, Trump wins in 2020 and the GOP wins in 2018 (as long as the GOP sticks with President Trump).

But the key point is one we have written about repeatedly in our long running series “Mistake In ’08“. In Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy Coalition series of articles and in the “Mistake In ’08” series we explained that the Democratic Party of FDR committed suicide when they traded the winning FDR coalition of voters for the losers of the Obama “coalition of the ascendant”.

The well respected Democrat pollster Celinda Lake provides the data for the fulfillment of our predictions:

New study projects stunning drop in 2018 millennial voter turnout in battleground states

The 2016 presidential election — and its outcome — may have given plenty of Americans a new sense of urgency when it comes to civics.

But a new study projects that 40 million Americans who voted last year will likely not show up at the polls for the 2018 midterms — and that two-thirds of those “drop-off” voters will be millennials, unmarried women and people of color.

The report, just out from the Voter Participation Center and Lake Research Partners, “Comparing the Voting Electorate in 2012-2016 and Predicting 2018 Drop-off,” notes that many of those expected not to cast a ballot next year live in key battleground states like Arizona, Nevada, Florida and Ohio.

“Everybody declines in their turnout in off-year elections. But the decline is much, much more dramatic among the ‘Rising American Electorate,’” Democratic strategist and pollster Celinda Lake said in a Thursday conference call about the findings.

According to the report produced for the nonprofit Voter Participation Center, which works to increase civic engagement, “35.1% of those who voted in 2016, or 25.4 million RAE voters, will stay home” in 2018. By comparison, “The predicted drop-off among non-RAE voters is only 22.1%, or 14.4 million voters.”

The study defines the “Rising American Electorate” as unmarried women, millennials ages 18 to 34, African-Americans, Latinos and other people of color as defined by the U.S. Census.

The totalitarian leftist kooks will be as surprised in 2018/2020 as they were late into the evening of election night 2016.

Get it? The Obama coalition of the “ascendant”, what the left has rebranded as the “Rising American Electorate”, is a coalition more suited for the network suits who seek viewers for their situation comedies. We wrote long ago that it was monumentally stupid to trade the FDR coalition of seniors and other voters who vote in every election for the whimsical types who vote for clowns like Obama.


The lunatic left convinced the Democratic Party in 2007/2008 to go with this new riff-raff RAE. As in 2010 the GOP is poised for a big victory in 2018 because of this grave miscalculation and stupid trade-off of voters. The GOP got reliable seniors and white working class voters while the Dims got goofballs and lunatics who burn cars and riot but don’t vote. Some trade huh?

Into the sh*t the Obama Dimocrats shat in 2007/2008 steps Chuck Schumer and the Obama Dimocrat Party with a new slogan. “A Better Deal” is supposed to be a harkening to FDR’s “New Deal”. “A Better Deal” is supposed to be a way to woo white working class voters lost to the GOP. But “A Better Deal” is a broken down rented mule.

Tucker Carlson zoomed in on the weakness of “A Better Deal” as a slogan the Obama Dimocrats don’t believe in:



In a follow-up interview with a congressional Obama Dimocrat Tucker Carlson asked about illegal immigration. Because illegal immigration brings down working class wages, will “A Better Deal” mean the Obama Dimocrats will now care more about American workers than illegal immigrants, asked Carlson. The Obama Dimocrat persisted to defend illegal immigration which means “A Better Deal” is a lie to lure the stupid.

“A Better Deal” won’t work because Obama Dimocrats will still defend illegal immigration which hurts the working class. “A Better Deal” won’t work because Obama Dimocrats won’t attack their rich paymasters in California such as Google, Amazon, and FaceBook. How do you fight “corporate power” and not mention the tech giants?

“A Better Deal” is dead because of “intersectionality”

But what about the centrist Democrats? What do they have to say? Well, not much. That was Hillary’s dilemma. Yes, she was about as charismatic as yesterday’s sushi, but even if she wasn’t, what could she say? Promise more things to black people? She already had their vote, more or less.

This reliance on reactionary identity politics is the root of the Democrats’ problem — a Faustian bargain that like all such agreements turns out badly in the end. LBJ’s original plan may have worked for the party (until now) but it has been a disaster for African-Americans whose communities and family life have been hurt significantly rather than helped.

Yet the Democrats cling to this cultivation of individual groups as if it were their only policy. Not surprisingly, these groups are finding themselves in conflict with each other, spelling problems for the Dems who have no way of reconciling the complaints of each. (The ludicrous construct of “intersectionality” has appeared because of this.)

“A Better Deal” will appeal only to the Kook Left. It’s also a slap in the face to Hillary Clinton from Chuck Schumer:

“When you lose elections, as we did in 2014 and 2016, you don’t flinch, you don’t blink. You look in the mirror and ask what did we do wrong?” said Chuck Schumer, flanked on stage by nine other Democratic congressional leaders. “The number one thing we did wrong was not to present a strong, bold economic agenda to working Americans so they’re hope for the future might return.”

Is there no humiliation Hillary Clinton will not accept?

Chuck Schumer has been much remarked upon, even praised in many quarters, for stating the obvious — that Hillary Clinton should stop blaming the sun, moon, and stars, and, of course, Russia for her demise and look to herself for her failure to win the presidency. She was a wretched candidate with no obvious reason for running. Indeed, the WikiLeaks from her campaign operatives are rife with emails searching for some justification for her candidacy other than gender.

Hillary Clinton failed in 2008 and 2016 because she did not want to fight against Barack Obama and his coalition of kooks in the same way Bill Clinton fought the kooks in 1992. We predicted all of what has happened. The Obama Coalition was the death certificate of the Democratic Party.

The future now belongs to President Trump. At a boy scouts “jamboree” over 40,000 scouts cheered the future:



Want to know why Senator Capito voted “yes” on healthcare today. Look at that crowd in her home state of West Virginia. We suggested that to pass today’s health care vote President Trump should go to West Virginia and he did and it did.

Later on Tuesday, to pressure Senator Portman for future ObamaCare repeal votes, it’s Ohio time. President Trump flew to Youngstown Ohio, to show the young what a Real Better Deal is.

New @RealDonaldTrump GOP: Shiva Ayyadurai For Senate, Smart Bob Woodson

Update: Need more reasons for Shiva Ayyadurai and other pro-Trump reinforcements to go fight against the Swamp in the Swamp? Monday night big red letters on DrudgeReport headlined the news that the ObamaCare repeal and replace died a pathetic death. Um, good riddance.

It took the defection of two more GOP senators (Mike Lee, Jerry Moran) to make it clear to all that the Mitch McConnell/Paul Ryan schemes to pretend to repeal had succeeded to fail. The most unproductive congress in 164 years just hit Ryan bottom.

Are we sad, frustrated, giving up, or otherwise unhappy? Nope. We won’t mope. We’re actually kinda happy. The McConnell/Ryan pretend-to-repeal-and-don’t-really-replace legislative mess heralds what we always thought was the common sense proposal: Repeal ObamaCare first and foremost.

The McConnell/Ryan proposals were a big lie: Johnson’s grievance is with McConnell, who he claims assured senior GOP figures last week that Medicaid cuts planned by the legislation would ‘never happen’ because they were slated to come far in the future.

President Trump is now on board with what we advocated from the first: let ObamaCare collapse then force GOP do-nothings and the Obama Dimocrats to face political death. ‘More Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!’ he predicted. Mitch McConnell is now forced, and has agreed, to a repeal ObamaCare bill.

In 2015 the GOP House and Senate passed a bill to repeal ObamaCare which Obama vetoed. It will be illuminating to watch as the very senators and congressmen that voted for ObamaCare repeal in 2015 knowing Obama would veto any such law argue in 2017 that they cannot vote for the very same repeal in 2017 because President Donald J. Trump will sign such a law. This will be the best test on who must be culled from the herd.

If GOP senators and congressmen vote against ObamaCare repeal because now they know President Trump will sign such a law they need to be culled from the ranks of government workers via a primary challenge against them. Bring in Shiva!

By the way, the latest poll still has Trump beating Hillary.

————————————————————-

In politics, don’t ever give up or get frustrated. There are many ways to get to your goals. Angry at the Obama Dims? Disgusted with the Republican do-nothing establishment that hates President Donald J. Trump? Don’t mope. Fight, fight, fight.

How to fight? Send President Donald J. Trump reinforcements. We mean reinforcements to help – not more GOP establishment blowhards that are “fake pro-Trump” and really hate President Trump and his agenda. So who? Who? Who?

Shiva Ayyadurai in Massachusetts is a strong President Donald J. Trump supporter. Shiva Ayyadurai also knows how to fight.

Shiva Ayyadurai is also further proof of the changes in the GOP since Obama destroyed the Democratic Party of FDR and turned it into a leftist lunacy. Soon after the November 2008 elections, before the 2010 election wipeout for Obama Dimocrats we noted that the GOP was increasingly the party of diversity. We noted how the GOP, unlike the Obama Dimocrats, had male and female Latino governors (Sandoval in Nevada and Susanna Martinez in New Mexico), Governors Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Bobby Jindal in Louisiana both of Indian subcontinent heritage, Latino Senators Cruz and Rubio, women senators along with black congressmen and a senator. It was all part of the monumental Mistake in ’08:

The obvious mistake that the massive “creative class” brains made when they created the Obama monster in a Chicago laboratory was that Republicans would remain static in their strategies and candidates. The stupidity was to think that Republicans would go to sleep and stick to an outdated playbook. Strategists such as Teixeira managed to persuade the gullible “leadership” that even though White Americans would remain a potent electoral force these White Americans could be ignored if they were “lunch bucket Joe and Jane”. In other words, the White Working Class would be ignored and instead wealthy white liberals and their kids would be the only ones invited to participate in the New America.

Now comes Shiva Ayyadurai who knows how to run against Pocahontas: A real Indian can defeat a fake Indian:

Warren takes early salvo from GOP hopeful: ‘A real Indian can defeat a fake Indian’

Mumbai-born entrepreneur: ‘I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday’

Well that line of attack certainly is an eye opener! But can the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts be replicated in 2018? The polls look bad for Pocahontas so yeah. But who is this Shiva guy?

Entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai has thrown down a rhetorical gauntlet to critics of his plan to unseat Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”

Fox Business Network invited Cambridge’s start-up king on air Wednesday to discuss his realization of the American dream as an immigrant in 1970. Mr. Ayyadurai said that in addition to his seven successful companies and multiple degrees from MIT, his resume is poised to include the role of U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

“I’m looking forward to going against Warren,” Mr. Ayyadurai said. “I know how these elites work. I know I can defeat her.”

The tech-minded businessman, who holds a 1982 federal copyright called EMAIL, added that he was looking forward to the State Convention in April 2018 and the Republican primary election in September.

“In Massachusetts, 46 percent of Democrats have said that Elizabeth Warren should not run,” Mr. Ayyadurai added. “So there’s a significant opportunity here. For me, defeating Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts is driving a bigger blow to these institutions of power right in the belly of the beast.”

But the Mumbai-born entrepreneur (his family moved to the U.S. when he was seven) also went for the conservative punchline regarding Ms. Warren.

“I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian. I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday and I was very sad she returned it. That’s the issue of a real Indian and a fake Indian, the truth, because there is a woman who actually checked off the box that she is Native American.”

Ms. Warren faced scrutiny in 2012 over disputed claims that she possesses Native American ancestry. She has been mocked by critics as “Pocahontas” and “Fauxcahontas.”

“I think it’s going to be a historic campaign. I think it’s going to reveal a lot of very, very important contradictions that are important for the American public to hear,” Mr. Ayyadurai said.

In Hinduism the god Shiva is one of the major deities. Shiva is the “destroyer and transformer” in Hinduism. Massachusetts might get a shiver from Shiva Ayyadurai and a political destroyer and transformer.

Shiva Ayyadurai is a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump. Take a look. Send him a few dollars. Check out his website and fight #FakeIndian Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren. Check out Shiva Ayyadurai’s appearance with the tickled pink Stuart Varney:



“Shiva I-adore-you” Ha!!! No sitting shiva with this one.

President Donald J. Trump is a destroyer and transformer. Help send President Trump another destroyer and transformer to help pass the agenda. Send Shiva to the Senate, Massachusetts.

It could happen:

According to a new WBUR poll of 508 Massachusetts voters, only 44 percent believe the Democratic firebrand, known for her outspoken critiques of President Donald Trump, “deserves reelection,” while 46 percent say voters should “give someone else a chance.”

* * * * * *

President Donald J. Trump’s main goal is to Make America Great Again. To know how to Make America Great Again we have to understand where and when things went wrong. Bob Woodson of the Woodson Center recalls the civil rights battles of the 1960s and understands how the positive changes of those days have been turned into horror by obaminations such as Black Lives Matter. Here’s Bob Woodson on the Tucker Carlson show:


Black Lives Matter is part of a hypocritical race grievance industry, says Woodson. Inclusion not separation is what Woodson advocates. Black Lives Matter has “hijacked the movement”. The high black poverty rates of today is not a legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. Liberal academics made welfare a killer of the black community. The black family has been destroyed by liberal policies. Tell it brother!

Today President Trump begins his three week “made in America” focus on American jobs. President Trump will not only liberate the West. President Trump intends to Make America Great Again. President Trump needs everyone’s help to get the job done. President Trump needs the Bob Woodson and the Shiva Ayyadurai types as well as us to get the job of getting jobs done.

The best thing that can be “made in America” is to Make America Great Again.

Coward Comey Corruption Taints @FBI And #SpecialCounsel Mueller Must Resign

Make the F.B.I. great again – arrest, prosecute, imprison James Comey. If Special Counsel Mueller does not immediately raid the homes and offices of James Comey and his partner in crime Daniel Richman (who has now fled the scene of the crime[s] in order to avoid interrogation by the authorities), to seize computers and other materials pertinent to his investigation, then Robert Mueller himself deserves to be investigated by a special prosecutor. Robert Mueller has a decision to make: stand by the law or by his long time pal the corrupt James Comey.

When Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel we celebrated. We celebrated because the more Swamp Deep State players come forth to attack President Trump openly, not from the shadows, the easier it will be to take down the Deep State “resistance” to a duly elected President. We wrote, “The more the political establishment swamp tries to destroy President Trump however, the closer they are to their own destruction.” This prediction is comeying truer and truer.

At the time we also declared, “We’re gonna need a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor.” Ain’t that the truth!

We were wrong about one particular detail. We thought the leaker of the Comey memo was Comey crony Benjamin Wittes. We were wrong in that particular instance but Robert Mueller should question Wittes under oath (and seize his computers) to determine if Wittes conspired to leak on behalf of Comey previously.

Because of his self-confession we now know the illegal leaker was Former F.B.I. Director James Comey himself using a cutout crony from Columbia. What Comey confirmed is the extent of Deep State corruption and that we face an attempted coup by the Obama Dimocrat and GOP establishment Deep State against a duly elected President. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich strikes all the necessary warnings about why we believe Special Counsel Mueller is a crony creep of clown Comey:

The most startling revelation from fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony this week was his barefaced admission that he intentionally leaked details of his private conversations with the president to the press in an effort to prompt the appointment a special counsel.

When asked Thursday by Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine whether he shared the memos he wrote about his conversations with President Trump with anyone outside the Department of Justice, Comey answered:

I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter – didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons – but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

This statement is tremendously important because it completely delegitimizes Robert Mueller’s so-called independent investigation and reveals it as poisoned fruit.

Poisoned fruit of corruption. Robert Mueller must either prove himself via a raid of Comey’s hideouts and computers, as well as the deep holes of his crony friends and computers, or Robert Mueller himself must be viewed as corrupt.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed though the efforts of James Comey. James Comey wanted to interfere in the ongoing investigations by Congress and the F.B.I. So James Comey corruptly interfered with the investigations and thereby violated the law which prohibits interference with government investigations. Corruption. Jeff Sessions must intervene and demand the resignation of Robert Mueller and prosecution of Mueller and his leaker employment office pal James Comey.

Let’s continue with Newt Gingrich’s analysis:

Think about it: Comey was the top law enforcement officer in the nation before he was fired on May 9. Had he felt a special counsel was necessary to investigate possible Russian influence in the 2016 election, he could have requested one from Congress at any time. If he felt his conversations with President Trump warranted additional attention, he could have approached Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about it.

But instead he decided to do nothing. Comey apparently didn’t think there was need for a special counsel until the Monday after he was fired, according to his testimony.

In a clear act of retaliation, Comey went outside the system and shared secret information with the media via a college professor-friend, in a calculated attempt to inflict pain on the Trump administration. Further, he said he turned all his memos about his conversations over to the special counsel upon his termination – so Mueller’s investigators already had all they needed to make their own decisions.

But Comey knows that the press feed off attacking Trump. He also knows that they have an incomplete, false understanding of the Russia investigation and would therefore gladly perpetuate the false narrative that Trump was somehow under investigation. He saw a chance to cause drama, and he took it.

Yet this is the same person who on Thursday, under oath, exonerated Trump on the Russia question. Collins asked Comey two very direct, simple questions. She asked, “whether there was any kind of investigation about the President underway” and “was the President under investigation at the time of [Comey’s] dismissal on May 9?”

For both questions – under oath – Comey answered “no.”

Gingrich correctly announces the death of the “collusion” angle of the Deep State abuse of power against a duly elected President. Then Newt Gingrich goes for the kill:

But there’s another wrinkle in this story: Comey and Mueller are very close.

Throughout his testimony, Comey described Mueller as “one of this country’s great, great pros,” called him “the right person” to lead the Russia investigation, and said “Bob Mueller is one of the finest people and public servants this country’s ever produced. He will do it well. He is a dogged, tough person, and you can have high confidence that, when it’s done, he’s turned over all the rocks.”

When Senator John Cornyn asked whether anything Comey had testified would “impede the investigation of the FBI or Director Mueller’s commitment to get to the bottom of this,” Comey stressed that the appointment of Mueller was “a critical part of that equation.”

Let’s also not forget that 97 percent of campaign donations from Department of Justice employees went to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. The culture and people at DOJ are predisposed to be hostile to President Trump.

So, what we have here is a fired FBI director, who leaked private material to the press, so he could get his friend appointed as a special counsel in order to take retribution on the President – with the aid of a department full of federal lawyers who would have rather seen Hillary in the White House. And we are supposed to believe this will be an objective, unbiased investigation?

Comey’s testimony – and the situation he orchestrated around it – really show the depths to which the deep state will go – working around Congress, outside of even the federal process – to damage and undermine President Trump. And it perfectly illustrates how sick the system has become. [snip]

Make no mistake: This is not about law and order, it is not about justice, it is not even about any investigation. This is about influence peddling, this is about the search for vengeance, and this is about stopping the revolution President Trump was elected to implement.

This is everything that sickens normal Americans about the swamp.

America is on a knife’s edge. The question is now whether Republicans in Congress will have the courage to stand with President Trump and fight the deep state that was personified in Comey’s testimony Thursday.

The GOP establishment is in cahoots with the Obama Dimocrat Deep State opposition to a duly elected President of the United States. It is citizens who must stand up against the cowardly Comey cronies who strike from the protection of shadows.



We, and Newt Gingrich, do not stand alone in this analysis. Jonathan Turley sees the FBI tainted by cowardly Comey corruption:

The testimony of James Comey proved long on atmospherics and short on ethics. While many were riveted by Comey’s discussion of his discomfort in meetings with President Trump, most seemed to miss the fact that Comey was describing his own conduct in strikingly unethical terms. The greatest irony is that Trump succeeded in baiting Comey to a degree that even Trump could not have imagined. After calling Comey a “showboat” and poor director, Comey proceeded to commit an unethical and unprofessional act in leaking damaging memos against Trump.

Comey described a series of ethical challenges during his term as FBI director. Yet, he almost uniformly avoided taking a firm stand in support of the professional standards of the FBI. During the Obama administration, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch gave Comey a direct order to mislead the public by calling the ongoing investigation a mere “matter.” Rather than standing firm on the integrity of his department and refusing to adopt such a meaningless and misleading term, Comey yielded to Lynch while now claiming discomfort over carrying out the order.

When Trump allegedly asked for Comey to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn or pledge loyalty, Comey did not tell the president that he was engaging in wildly inappropriate conduct. He instead wrote a memo to file and told close aides. He now says that he wishes he had the courage or foresight to have taken a stand with the president.

However, the clearest violation came in the days following his termination. Comey admits that he gave the damaging memos to a friend at Columbia Law School with the full knowledge that the information would be given to the media. It was a particularly curious moment for a former director who was asked by the president to fight the leakers in the government. He proceeded in becoming one of the most consequential leakers against Trump.

Jonathan Turley notes that not only is Comey a self-confessed coward and conspirator, leaking documents to injure a duly elected American president, Turley notes that Jim “Olive Oyl” Comey could open his own “Chock Full o’ Nuts” kook den franchise:

Comey said that he took these actions days after his termination, when he said that he woke up in the middle of the night and realized suddenly that the memos could be used to contradict Trump. It was a bizarrely casual treatment of material that would be viewed by many as clearly FBI information. He did not confer with the FBI or the Justice Department. He did not ask for any classification review despite one of the parties described being the president of the United States. He simply sent the memos to a law professor to serve as a conduit to the media.

As a threshold matter, Comey asked a question with regard to Trump that he should now answer with regard to his own conduct. Comey asked why Trump would ask everyone to leave the Oval Office to speak with Comey unless he was doing something improper. Yet, Trump could ask why Comey would use a third party to leak these memos if they were his property and there was nothing improper in their public release.

In fact, there was a great deal wrong with their release, and Comey likely knew it. These were documents prepared on an FBI computer addressing a highly sensitive investigation on facts that he considered material to that investigation. Indeed, he conveyed that information confidentially to his top aides and later said that he wanted the information to be given to the special counsel because it was important to the investigation.

Many in the media have tried to spin this as not a “leak” because leaks by definition only involve classified information. That is entirely untrue as shown by history. Leaks involve the release of unauthorized information — not only classified information. Many of the most important leaks historically have involved pictures and facts not classified but embarrassing to a government. More importantly, federal regulations refer to unauthorized disclosures not just classified information.

James Comey must be prosecuted by Special Counsel Mueller or Mueller will be incontrovertibly exposed as a Comey crony who owes his job to Comey and further exposed as a co-conspirator in a conspiracy to interfere in a federal investigation[s]. Turley correctly notes how Comey corruption taints the entire F.B.I.:

Comey’s position would effectively gut a host of federal rules and regulations. He is suggesting that any federal employee effectively owns documents created during federal employment in relation to an ongoing investigation so long as they address the information to themselves. FBI agents routinely write such memos in investigations. They are called 302s to memorialize field interviews or fact acquisitions. They are treated as FBI information.

The Justice Department routinely claims such memos as privileged and covered by the deliberative process privilege and other privileges. Indeed, if this information were sought under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) it would likely have been denied. Among other things, the Justice Department and FBI routinely claim privilege “inter-agency or intra-agency memorandums or letters which would not be available by law to a party other than an agency in litigation with the agency.” [snip]

Besides being subject to nondisclosure agreements, Comey falls under federal laws governing the disclosure of classified and unclassified information. Assuming that the memos were not classified (though it seems odd that it would not be classified even on the confidential level), there is 18 U.S.C. § 641, which makes it a crime to steal, sell, or convey “any record, voucher, money, or thing of value of the United States or of any department or agency thereof.”

There are also ethical and departmental rules against the use of material to damage a former represented person or individual or firm related to prior representation. The FBI website warns employees that “dissemination of FBI information is made strictly in accordance with provisions of the Privacy Act; Title 5, United States Code, Section 552a; FBI policy and procedures regarding discretionary release of information in accordance with the Privacy Act; and other applicable federal orders and directives.”

One such regulation is § 2635.703, on the use of nonpublic information, which states, “An employee shall not engage in a financial transaction using nonpublic information, nor allow the improper use of nonpublic information to further his own private interest or that of another, whether through advice or recommendation, or by knowing unauthorized disclosure.”

The standard FBI employment agreement bars the unauthorized disclosure of information “contained in the files, electronic or paper, of the FBI” that impact the bureau and specifically pledges that “I will not reveal, by any means, any information or material from or related to FBI files or any other information acquired by virtue of my official employment to any unauthorized recipient without prior official written authorization by the FBI.”

Had Comey taken the minimal step of seeking clearance, the department would likely have said that this was FBI information and not personal information. Comey instead decided to ask forgiveness rather than permission.

Comey is also subject to bar rules on releasing information inimical to the interests of his former employer. For example, under professional rule 1.6, lawyers need to secure authority to release information that “(1) reveal a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client; (2) use a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client to the disadvantage of the client; [or] (3) use a confidence or secret of the lawyer’s client for the advantage of the lawyer or of a third person.”

Comey actually showed both how to and how not to disclose such information. When Comey released the information, he knew that he was going to be called to Congress where he could disclose this information properly after giving the White House a chance to claim privilege. Instead, he decided to release the information early. Why?

Comey gave two equally implausible explanations. First, he suggested that he wanted to get the information to investigators. However, he knew not only that he was likely to testify but that these memos would inevitably be demanded by both congressional and federal investigators. Second, he said that he wanted to ensure the appointment of a special counsel. However on that Monday, many of us were saying that such an appointment was virtually inevitable. More importantly, he could have given the memos to investigators and properly laid the foundation for a special counsel.

The fact is that the leaking of the memos worked to the advantage of James Comey, not Robert Mueller. Comey was able to take over the narrative and news cycle after Trump had publicly belittled him and his record. Special counsels do not like leaks of this kind. It would have been far better for the special counsel (or Comey’s own former investigatory team and congressional investigators) to have the memos confidentially.

Um, didn’t James Comey lead an “investigation” swamp thing Lynch dubbed a “matter”, against Hillary Clinton for the very reason of mishandled government documents?



If we are to believe Jimmy Comey, he is a self-confessed coward. If we are to believe Jimmy Comey, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a coward too. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has not seized computers from Comey and his Columbia crony. Special Counsel Rober Mueller is either a corrupt co-conspirator against a duly elected President or a coward – OR BOTH!

Comey the Coward of the Deep State conspiracy alongside Robert Mueller against a duly elected American president:

Former FBI Director James Comey is master operator on the Washington scene. That is the predominant impression I came away with from Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday. It is an impression that is consistent with his self-serving confessions of uneasiness, discomfort, confusion, cowardice, fright, tongue-tied wonderment and the like. What manner of man (let alone FBI Director) is this?

Comey has met with his friend Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to supervise the investigation into Russia-related matters and whatever else strikes his fancy. Comey is Mueller’s old colleague and friend. We learned yesterday that once he was fired by President Trump Comey himself sought to engineer the appointment of a special counsel. Mission accomplished. [snip]

Comey testified that he read the memo to Richman for the purpose of having Richman transmit the contents to “a reporter” (presumably a Timesman).

Why use a cutout? Comey testified: “Because I was weary [of] the media [that] was camping at the end of my driveway at that point. I was actually going out of town with my wife to hide. I worried it would be feeding seagulls at the beach, if it was I who gave it to the media.”

Here the clock strikes thirteen. This is ridiculous. [snip]

What is Comey talking about? And by the way, what other seagulls has he fed? As I say, this guy is a master operator. He is a master operator who can dish out a patently absurd story with a perfectly straight face.

How many “seagulls” has Jimmy Comey fed as part of his conspiracy alongside Robert Mueller against a duly elected President:

Today fired former FBI Director James Comey stated that he leaked data to a Columbia University friend who in turn provided the leaked information to the New York Times. Comey did this even though he stated under oath in the past that he never leaked information to the press.

The current updated analysis of the most recent list of so-called ‘leaks’ being reported and repeated by the liberal mainstream media (MSM) involving President Trump includes at least 38 leaks in total.

Many of these ‘leaks’ are now proven fabrications and the probability that many remaining ‘leaks’ are completely inaccurate is very high. [snip]

Of the 38 leaks listed below, nine are related to James Comey.

How many of these did Comey actually leak? [snip]

The President has the law on his side. Attorney General Sessions needs to add these entities and individuals to a growing list of corrupt swamp dwellers that need to be brought to justice. Former FBI Director Comey needs to be added to this list.

Drain the Swamp!

The list of leaks is long. Special Counsel Robert Mueller must investigate these leaks. Or is Robert Mueller himself a leaker? Or, as is apparently true as demonstrated by the lack of raids on the homes, offices, and computers, of James Comey and Daniel Richman, is Robert Mueller only interested in protection of his pal and co-conspirator James Comey?

No raids, no seizures of computers and records, point to Special Counsel Robert Mueller as corrupt as his pal Jimmy Comey.

Jimmy Comey aided and abetted swamp thing Loretta Lynch’s successful attempts to aid the Hillary Clinton political operation in 2016. Robert Mueller is in collusion with James Comey in a conspiracy to destroy a duly elected American president. Robert Mueller knows there is no “obstruction of justice” to investigate as it relates to President Trump. If there is “obstruction of justice” the obstruction is from the Comey/Mueller conspiracy to destroy a duly elected American president, especially as we all are now in agreement (including Chris “tingles” Matthews) that the “Russia collusion” lie is now proven so false even Obama Dimocrats have abandoned that sunken craft.

This Tuesday, possibly in open session, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be able, like Dorothy with the lion, to punch the cowardly Comey in the snout.

Jerusalem, Qatar, NATO, Comey, Terror: The Great Trump Reelection

Like Alexander The Great, President Donald J. Trump is shaking the world. The Great Trump is on track to great electoral victories in 2018 and a 2020 reelection. The presidential blueprint for 2020 reelection and early victories in 2018 becomes clearer with every passing day.

Consider Jerusalem. Candidate Trump promised to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Now President Trump will not move the American embassy to Jerusalem. Great betrayal or great move?

To decide the question look at the events roiling the world. On Thursday President Trump signed a waiver delaying the embassy move. Trump spokesman Sean Spicer declared

“President Trump made this decision to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend America’s national security interests,” Spicer said. “But, as he has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if that move happens, but only when.”

Ordinarily, this type of empty talk to back away from a clear campaign promise is worthy only of derision. Two events convince us this is the Great Trump art of the deal, not a betrayal.

First, the reception two weeks ago by Saudi Arabia of President Trump was unprecedented in warmth and ostentation. The departure by President Trump on a heretofore forbidden direct flight from the Kingdom to Israel indicated the warm reception for the Great Trump in Saudi Arabia was not mere visuals and talk.

Second, today, an astonishing development:

Seven foreign nations — Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Libya, Maldives, Yemen and Bahrain — cut diplomatic ties with Qatar on Monday, as well as suspending sea and air travel to and from the country, after accusing the nation of collaborating with militant groups in the region, reports the BBC.

Qatar supplies and supports terrorist organizations such as Hamas, ISIS, and Al-Qaeda. Qatar is an ally of Iran. Qatar cannot survive without the 80% import of food and other necessary supplies from the countries that just cut off diplomatic ties. Qatar is now cut off from land, sea and air contact with fellow members of the Gulf Cooperation Council. Why has this happened? The Great Trump:

While on a visit to Riyadh two weeks ago, US President Donald Trump urged Muslim countries to take the lead in combating radicalisation, and blamed Iran for instability in the Middle East.

“It seems that the Saudis and Emiratis feel emboldened by the alignment of their regional interests – toward Iran and Islamism – with the Trump administration,” Gulf analyst Kristian Ulrichsen told Reuters news agency.

“[They] have decided to deal with Qatar’s alternative approach on the assumption that they will have the [Trump] administration’s backing.”

We do not doubt that the hold on the embassy move to Jerusalem and the stunning isolation of Qatar are related. The embassy move will come when the Great Trump decides the time is ripe. For now, the time is ripe to take on Iran allies and enablers as a prelude to the final battle with the Persian Empire of Terror.

The Great Trump is respected in capitals of the middle east which mocked the great boob Barack “the sniveling” Obama. The Great Trump deals from strength.

Consider NATO. The Big Media left mocked the Great Trump when he schlonged NATO leaders to their faces. We thought it was a wonderful display of needed American leadership and strength. Leftist Michael Kinsey, at the Trump hating New York Times arrives late to the same conclusion we did:

Trump’s NATO Bombast Gets Us Where Statesmanship Can’t [snip]

If Donald Trump had done nothing more than to create a legitimate occasion for calling a newspaper article “Whither NATO,” his place in history would be assured. Small, but assured.

But Mr. Trump has gone further. He has actually put the future of NATO on the global agenda by saying, on his European trip in May, that the United States spends far more on the shared defense than our allies do. That, he declared, was going to stop. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany then said that the days when Europe could “rely fully” on others were “somewhat over,” which is essentially what President Trump had said, without the dainty qualifications.

So we’re all in agreement, right? NATO must reform, with a better deal for the United States, or it will disappear. [snip]

On his recent trip to Europe, President Trump attacked European leaders in person and in public for failing to meet their defense obligations. Previous presidents have also wanted our fellow club members to pay their dues. Mr. Trump was not doing or saying anything especially new or bold. But earlier presidents, with their statesmanlike approach, had failed utterly to achieve a goal that most Americans likely would have found desirable. Mr. Trump, bombast and all, is surely more likely to make progress on that front than, say, the Council on Foreign Relations.

The Great Trump is reshaping, with strength, boldness, timing, and smarts, the entire world. While Europe sleeps, The Great Trump is reshaping the world. While The Great Trump shakes the world, Europe sleeps as it did before the world wars of the past century, inviting the soft invasion of the continent:

And, as I said only the other day, the reality of what is happening in Britain and Europe is that this problem was imported and that, until you stop importing it, you’re going to have more of it.

To hell with Europe and to hell with London and its Muslim Mayor. We won’t shed a tear or display any sympathy for the countries in Europe subject to Muslim terror attacks. To hell with them all. We feel sorry for the dead and injured but if any of them voted for the Muslim Mayor or voted against Brexit, or support Muslim immigration into Europe, then hey, you’re getting what you deserve.

We will take Europe seriously when the response to Muslim Terror attacks is a military response. As long as the European response to Muslim Terrorist Attacks is police investigations or calls for more security, then to hell with them.

The Great President Donald J. Trump understands that increased security until the West strangles itself with security is the wrong path. In the end the response to Muslim Terror will have to be death of Muslim Terrorists along with bans on Muslim Terrorists entering or remaining in this country.

Until Europe stops with the tears and laying down of flowers and stupid concerts with stupid singers to weep about the latest Muslim Terrorist Attack, the Muslim soft invasion of Europe will continue.

The Great Trump is reshaping the world. Many suspect the Great Trump will be defeated. But the only ones that believe the Great Trump will be defeated are the truly and resistant to reality, Dims.

For all the Big Media onslaught against President Trump, for all the predictions of doom in 2018 because of President Trump’s alleged “unpopularity”, Roll Call, has a wake up call:

Latest Roll Call Ratings Show Tough Road to Majority For Democrats

Looking at the map right now, even the best case scenarios for Democrats see the GOP keeping their congressional majorities. Looking at the map right now, even the best case scenarios for Democrats see the GOP keeping their congressional majorities.

Roll Call updated their congressional seat ratings on Thursday for the upcoming 2018 midterms, and early predictions indicate trouble for the Democrats’ quest to reclaim the majority.

The Capitol Hill paper rated 202 House seats as “Solid Republican” in addition to 17 as “Likely Republican.” With 435 seats in the House, requiring one party control 218 seats for a majority, the GOP would reach a majority by adding up Roll Call’s “Solid” and “Likely” seats.

Things are worse for Chuck Schumer’s crew in the Senate, where most of the seats up for election this year are incumbent Democrats.

For all the Russia hysteria by Obama Dimocrats and Hillary, the GOP will retain control of congress in 2018. In the Senate the GOP is well positioned to even surmount the 60 vote supermajority which will lead to President Trump getting just about everything he wants in the two years leading up to his reelection effort. House of Representatives, Governorships, Senate – the GOP under The Great Trump is set to win massive victories in 2018.

Trump hating US News and World Report likewise sees the Great Trump victories:

Inside Washington, Donald Trump’s 4-month-old presidency appears to spin in a perpetual state of crisis and chaos, achieving few tangible successes and beset by weekly distractions.

But in far and wide pockets of the country, where legions of loyal Trump supporters remain, a very different picture is being discerned.

They see a media corps obsessed with a Russia investigation despite no evidence of a crime, all too easily swallowing an excuse for Hillary Clinton’s loss.

They see a Democratic Party lurching further to the left and practicing pure obstructionism to appease its inflamed base.

They see a coterie of prosperous, smug elites stationed in power centers and unable to comprehend the everyday hardships spoken to by this president.

And they see all of them hellbent on taking down Trump, whatever the cost to the country.

U.S. News conducted email interviews with more than a dozen readers who defended Trump in their reactions to previous stories.

These folks are angry, distrustful and sometimes intemperate, reflecting similar characteristics of the commander in chief. Some are true believers who salute all of Trump’s actions, no matter how contentious or disputed. Others are clear-eyed about the president’s flaws, but are more disturbed by the drumbeat of a contemptuous opposition. Not all of them consider themselves conservatives; some even voted for former President Barack Obama – twice. [snip]

Suddenly, [Angela] Merkel thinks the German people cannot rely totally on the USA. Was that a good thing, [previously allowing] … Germany and 23 of NATO members to not pay their bills? The president calls them out on it. And this is an affront?” asks Richard Weddle of Los Angeles, who says he’s a nuclear researcher who has worked for the FBI and Defense Department. “President Trump said, right to the 50 or so Islamic nation leaders, terrorism, extremism must be driven out – with a euphemism for kill them – drive them out of the earth. This is as direct a statement as I have seen.”

Joseph Lapinski, a 68-year-old who declined to reveal where he lives, explains that he soured on Obama and moved to Trump due to their day-and-night approaches to roiling global events.

It’s not that Lapinski didn’t think Obama was “a wonderful guy. He was.”

But “it was how he, like Jimmy Carter, thought all the wars could be solved by talking, like North Korea,” Lapinski says. “It doesn’t make him a bad guy because he didn’t want blood on his hands. It does make him a bad commander in chief.

“Trump is a jerk. Being a jerk doesn’t make him a bad president.” [snip]

Kearney says she really doesn’t like Trump, but that the unrelenting Democratic backlash has actually resulted in pushing her closer to him.

“I find it difficult to even listen to him. But the Democrats are making him look better. He has actually done a fairly good job considering the attack he is under,” she says. “As bad as he is, I do not support the attempted coup that is going on. So this anti-Hillary voter finds herself getting more angry and being pushed into supporting Trump – a pig – but our president and a guy who seems to be trying to do the right things – clumsily, boorishly, but I believe sincerely.”

There is a lot in the interviews to choke Obama Dims. The quotes in support of The Great Trump are wise in the positive and the negative assessments of the Great Trump. “The only thing about which I vacillate is his tweeting, but then I remember that he is under news assault 24/7, and realize that no one can remain stoic 24/7. Nor should he. If he began to ignore the continual assaults by innuendo – seldom facts – his supporters would eventually give up the fight, too, and he’s the only one I’ve seen willing to absorb the slings and arrows day after day. The only president with whom he compares is Teddy Roosevelt for stalwartness.” “Trump definitely has some personality flaws and he probably should have vetted his staff better, but he is patriotic and certainly not a traitor. I sincerely think he wants to make America great again just as Obama did, but their definitions of American greatness and how to achieve this differ greatly.” “Hillary took money from Russia, Bill [Clinton] took money from Russia, and the press thinks I should get worked up about a Clinton-created story about a Trump-Russia collusion? Really?” “We see the economy improving. We see the jobs slowly coming back. We see the start of a better relationship with our allies, and we see his budget of 2018 trying to [rein] in wasteful spending. But all the media reports is Russia, more Russia and more Russia.” “Perhaps you should contact Clinton supporters and ask them when they are going to stop the whining, crying, rioting and threats of violence, and the actual violence. Finding Clinton supporters should be easy, I’m betting almost everyone you know or associate with is a Clinton supporter. You might want to check out the picture of Kathy Griffin holding Trump’s severed head, and then ask yourself just how much lower liberals and their media lapdogs can go.”

Only an Obama Dimocrat can doubt the strong bond the Great Trump has with his strong supporters, his once not so strong supporters, and even those who don’t like or approve of the President’s personality or style but want America Great Again.

At the Trump hating Politico, an article was published as the London Muslim Terror attacks took place. It is an article worth a full read which we will only excerpt:

A Noun, a Verb and Vladimir Putin

Why the Democrats are making a big mistake by obsessing over Russia. [snip]

He was, they asserted again and again, unacceptable, immoral and corrupt. Every focus group they assembled raised serious questions about his disparagement of various ethic groups, his brutish mannerisms, his business ties to foreign governments, his lack of qualifications. Almost every professional polling firm showed deep and mounting disapproval of his behavior—he was, they calculated, the most unpopular candidate in American history. Many in the Republican establishment criticized or outright denounced him. And yet, defying all the confident predictions right up until election night, Trump managed to eke out a shocking victory, relying particularly on a surge of “forgotten voters” in the Midwest.

You’d be forgiven, of course, if you thought this was a recap of the 2016 election. Actually, it’s what the same pundits who got 2016 so wrong very well might be saying again four years from now. Such a mind-blowing, spirit-crushing, defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory redo of the last election should keep smart Democratic operatives up at night. Yet it doesn’t. [snip]

To those with a bit of distance from cable news—that is, every sane person in America—Democrats seem to be replaying the exact strategy that lost them the last election. What, pray tell, is the Democratic Party’s message otherwise? [snip]

Democrats appear to have spent about two minutes trying to figure out why the voters of Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and, very nearly, Minnesota rejected them only a few months ago. [snip]

What did the Democrats do to rebuild the faith and trust of the “forgotten” voters they still seem to have trouble remembering? They doubled down. The first thing they did after the biggest political disaster in their history was to keep their leadership team intact. [snip]

When half the country believes the Democrats and the media are in cahoots, and most partisans are siloed off to their favorite media outlets and eschewing other sources of information, it makes it hard for “Watergate 2: The Series” to make it on the airwaves. Even Mike Morrell, the former CIA acting director who accused Trump of being a Russian stooge as he signed up for the Clinton campaign, thinks the media is hyping the story and showing bias against the president. [snip]

More than two-thirds of voters, according to at least one ABC News/Washington Post poll (if you believe polls anymore), said the Democrats were “out of touch.” The Democrats—yes, the Democrats—scored lower than Trump and the Republicans on that issue. [snip]

A few weeks ago, a sociologist at Columbia University flatly predicted that Trump will be reelected in 2020. In an even crueler blow to the Democrats, an ABC poll released in April found that Trump would beat Hillary Clinton in the popular vote if there were a hypothetical rematch.

The Obama Dims are in a massive black hole and the hole is galaxy size:

If the Democratic National Committee has many more weeks like the previous one, it might not recover in time for the midterm elections in 2018. [snip]

The Democratic National Committee took a brutal shot to its ribs when its 2016 nominee, Hillary Clinton, said it was bereft of ideas and data, and was near bankruptcy when she was nominated in July. [snip]

Andrew Therriault, the former DNC director of data science, responded by slamming Clinton in two since-deleted tweets, calling Clinton’s comments two unprintable words, according to CNN.

“I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense,” Therriault said in a message to DNC data staffers.

Black women are angry with the DNC, as are the whining Bernie Sanders kooks. It is particularly laughable that a Socialist who is not a member of their corrupt party is the leading candidate to challenge the Great Trump in 2020. The Socialists are even now fighting over the super-delegate rules and that will lead to a schism in 2020.

Instead of reality, the Obama Dims are heavily invested in Comey the Clown stocks. But Comey is a clown with zero credibility among Trump supporters who would be needed to really hurt Trump:

Washington will be riveted this week by the drama surrounding former FBI Director James Comey’s expected congressional testimony. But Republicans elsewhere in the country say they couldn’t care less. [snip]

There’s nothing about Jim Comey that I trust,” said state Sen. Ron Rabin. “There’s nothing consistent about what he says.”

Asked whether Comey has any credibility, he offered a view shared by many Republican activists gathered at this airy waterfront convention center: “None. Zero.”

Comey’s Clown show on Thursday will compete with the British elections for most watched circus. In the end, The Great Trump wins in 2018 and reelection in 2020:

Trump Will Likely Win Reelection in 2020
By Musa al-Gharbi

Most Americans don’t like Donald Trump.

Trump will most likely be reelected in 2020. [snip]

Trump won his first term despite record low approval ratings, triumphing over the marginally less unpopular Hillary Clinton. He will probably be able to repeat this feat if necessary.

The president continues to enjoy staunch support from the voters who put him in the White House. He has raised millions of dollars in small donations for reelection, pulling in twice as much money as Barack Obama in his first 100 days. And he’s already putting that money to use running ads in key states that trumpet his achievements and criticize political rivals.

Although most don’t like or trust Trump, polls show he seems to be meeting or exceeding Americans’ expectations so far. In fact, an ABC News/ Washington Post survey suggests that if the election had been held again in late April, Trump would have not only won the Electoral College, but the popular vote as well – despite his declining approval rating. [snip]

As a function of the default effect, the particular seats which happen to be open this cycle, and Republican dominance of state governments which has allowed them to draw key congressional districts in their favor – it will be extremely difficult for Democrats to gain even a simple majority in the Senate in 2018. The House? Even less likely. [snip]

Trump’s opposition is in much worse shape. The Democratic Party has been hemorrhaging voters for the better part of a decade. Democrats are viewed as being more “out of touch” with average Americans than Trump or the Republicans. Yet key players in the DNC still resist making substantive changes to the party’s platform and strategy. Hence it remains unclear how Democrats will broaden their coalition, or even prevent its continued erosion. [snip]

In other words, we can count on Trump surviving his first term – and likely winning a second.

During and despite a ceaseless onslaught by Big Media and Obama Dimocrats, the Great President Trump in polls taken during this period has only increased his support, even as allegedly the polls also show his allegedly declining popularity. Despite all the attacks, a rerun election would give President Trump a popular and electoral vote victory.

We do President Trump a great disservice with this article. For President Trump the best situation is for continued barking from Comey the Clown and the Obama Dimocrats – in full outrage after full outrage upon full outrage to top the last over the top full outrage. Our observation that Comey and the outrage of Obama Dimocrats only helps cement a Great Trumping in 2018 and 2020 is like putting a bell on a cat. Our apologies to the Great Trump.

We do Obama Dimocrats a great service with this article. If they could surgically Frankenstein a working brain they would learn a great deal and possibly figure out how to defeat the Great President Trump.

The truth is however, that Obama Dimocrats are rabid mad dogs chasing nothing-burgers that exercise them but from which they will learn nothing. Nothing will beget nothing.

Meanwhile, like Alexander the Great, The Great Trump will win, and win again.

#TheResistance Crumbles: #SCOTUS Justice Gorsuch Plus 4 More

This is the story of three missiles. One missile is surrounded by 58 other Tomahawk missiles that struck at Syria. Another missile is the heat seeking missile Obama Dimocrats fired at President Trump. This second missile has gone rogue, changed target, and instead of chasing President Trump is now fixed upon Barack Obama’s leading-from-his-behind ass and about to penetrate that well used tunnel.

The third missile? Gorsuch. Neil Gorsuch. Associate Justice to the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch. That’s the missile with the biggest payload. This multiple warhead missile will keep destroying its targets for twenty, thirty, or forty years.

As we do, President Donald J. Trump expects to appoint more missiles to the high court. As we do, President Donald J. Trump believes there will be four more:

President Trump believes that he will have the opportunity to pack the Supreme Court with five judges, making him only the seventh president to appoint a majority and potentially cementing his legacy and that of the conservative court well past 2055.

Today the Scalia replacement. Probably in June the Anthony Kennedy replacement. The relatively young Clarence Thomas at 71 will resign too and President Trump will appoint a much younger version.
We suspect Stephen Breyer will recognize the ceaseless 5-4 victories will not validate his continued presence away from retirement. After that, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will succumb to a life away from the court too.

At today’s ceremony at the White House, President Trump slathered Justice Anthony Kennedy with so much praise it reminded us of that line from The Women. As chimes play in “Black’s Fifth Avenue” department store one woman asks “What’s that?” The other woman responds “The bums rush in melody dear.”



Do you hear those chimes sing Justice Anthony Kennedy?

President Donald J. Trump is ready for the Kennedy retirement. Politico has the details:

After Donald Trump wrapped up his first speech to Congress and worked his way through the crowd, he lingered on his handshake with Anthony Kennedy, the 80-year-old Supreme Court justice.

The boom mics picked up their seemingly private conversation.

Say hello to your boy,” Trump said, “Special guy.” “Your kids have been very nice to him,” Kennedy replied. “Well,” Trump said, “they love him, and they love him in New York.”

While the White House is focused this week on shepherding Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, through the Senate confirmation process, the president and his team are obsessed with the next possible vacancy. [snip]

One back channel is the fact that Kennedy’s son, Justin, knows Donald Trump Jr. through New York real estate circles. Another is through Kennedy’s other son, Gregory, and Trump’s Silicon Valley adviser Peter Thiel. They went to Stanford Law School together and served as president of the Federalist Society in back-to-back years, according to school records. More recently, Kennedy’s firm, Disruptive Technology Advisers, has worked with Thiel’s company Palantir Technologies.

In fact, during the early months of the Trump administration, Gregory Kennedy has worked at NASA as a senior financial adviser as part of the so-called “beachhead” team. Both Kennedy boys were spotted at the White House last month for the administration’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration (Justice Kennedy is Irish Catholic). In February, Ivanka Trump attended oral arguments of the Supreme Court with her daughter. She was a guest of Justice Kennedy. [snip]

Those close to Trump’s judicial-selection process stress that they’re not pressuring Kennedy to hang up his robe, only seeking to put him at ease.

Um, “only seeking to put him at ease” is the bum’s rush in melody dear. Those lines of communication from the Trump family and allies should have Chuck Stumbler and his Obama Dimocrats worried sick.

That list of of potential Supreme Court appointments? That’s also a list of potential President Trump appointments to the Appellate Circuit. Many of those soon to be announced appointments are undergoing F.B.I. background checks. Neil Gorsuch is not the sole move on the judicial chessboard by President Trump. And, after Neil Gorsuch, it all becomes easier for President Trump which is why we understood the Obama Dimocrats would filibuster – even though that was a suicide move.

Because of the extreme foolishness of #TheResistance Obama Dimocrats, which we have laughed about for a while now, even CNN recognizes that Obama Dimocrats are as fertile as dildos without batteries:

Democrats have zero leverage after Gorsuch [snip]

The exercise of the “nuclear option” returns Senate procedures to what they were 15 years ago. The filibuster was simply not employed for partisan purposes against a nominee who had majority support before Harry Reid started filibustering George W. Bush’s lower-court nominees in 2003. (Infamously, the Senate denied Miguel Estrada an up-or-down vote seven times to prevent Bush from later having the opportunity to elevate the first Hispanic justice.) Reid used the “nuclear option” to eliminate that sort of filibuster a decade later, so perhaps this week’s action should be called “thermonuclear.” [snip]

The next nominee. By filibustering the milquetoast Gorsuch despite the high probability and repeatedly expressed intention of the Republicans to go nuclear, the Democrats have destroyed any leverage they had over the next nominee. Should there be another vacancy under President Trump while the GOP controls the Senate, there will be zero incentive for the President to moderate his choice. It’s not at all clear that Republican senators such as Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other “institutionalists” would’ve gone along with a “nuclear option” to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a nominee more controversial than Gorsuch. But now they won’t face that dilemma.

Until President Donald J. Trump, Republicans have faced an ugly dilemma with appointments to the Supreme Court:

Whoever said you can’t win by picking unwinnable battles never said it to Chuck Schumer. Democrats opted to fight the good fight, which tends to undermine future attempts to fight the winning fight. This represents a role-reversal of sorts for Democrats and Republicans. Until recently, conservative legislators played Charlie Brown kicking the football to the role of Lucy pulling it away played by Republican presidents, whose stealth nominees invariably revealed themselves as liberals once on the court.

Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court. But because Republican presidents nominated the likes of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, and David Souter, liberal majorities ruled the Supreme Court throughout the lifetimes of just about everybody reading this. The phenomenon, captured in the title of Patrick Buchanan’s 1975 book Conservative Votes, Liberal Victories, effectively meant a veto on conservative laws, particularly ones passed at the state level. Jurists nominated by Republicans authored the decisions in Roe v. Wade, Kelo v. New London, National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius, and so many lesser-known cases whose decisions usurped the rights of states and individuals.

John Stuart Mill didn’t call conservatives “the stupid party” for nothing. But even slow people figure it out, albeit, as their name suggests, more slowly, and conservatives blocked George W. Bush’s suspected stealth pick Harriet Miers and stood firmly in blocking a vote on Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. [snip]

The payoff for McConnell’s gambit on Garland appears especially generous given the widespread declarations that replacing Antonin Scalia with a consistent liberal vote represented a historic sea change. “The Supreme Court’s Conservative Run Is Over” (Politico), “The Conservative Era of the Supreme Court Is Over” (Los Angeles Times), and “After 45 Years of Conservative Rulings, Here’s What a Liberal Supreme Court Would Do” (Washington Post) read a few of the headlines. What a difference a year makes!

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch via the destruction of the filibuster is a major immediate and long term victory for President Trump. “Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court.” But because of obstruction, their nominees were not ideologically committed and soon moved to the left. From now on that won’t happen. And if President Trump appoints 5 young Justices to the high court, the likelihood that Obama Dimocrats will appoint even a single Supreme Court Justice in the next 25 years is de minimus. Thank Barack Obama and the Mistake in ’08.

On April 17, the Supreme Court returns to work and the influence of Justice Gorsuch will be felt on the calendar of the court. And this schedule does not include, yet, President Trump’s “nexus issue” -immigration – on which Justice Gorsuch will have a profound effect.

This Holy Week, with Passover holidays under threat and the slaughter in Egypt of Christians on Palm Sunday and throughout the middle east in our minds, should remind us all that President Trump is on the job and as bad as things are the Republic is in good hands. As busy making America Great Again as he is, President Trump has proven he can play a winning game of chess on multiple boards.

Chess GrandMaster Trump? Even the Trump hating Washington Post is forced to agree with our analysis:

Could it be? Is President Trump on a roll?

I don’t want to jinx anything, but President Trump may be experiencing the best sequence of events since he became president. Just this week, he received bipartisan support for his military strike in Syria, secured Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court, had impressive meetings with both King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi of Egypt, caught a break with the Susan Rice scandal, and it appears he has walked away from a successful encounter with Chinese President Xi Jinping — all without knocking it off the rails with a wayward tweet. And it’s not just me saying that, no less than Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass wrote that this was “arguably [the] best of Donald Trump’s still young presidency, from [a] successful strike in Syria to confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.” [snip]

McConnell was correct in saying, “Certainly, this is an important day in the history of the Senate and in the Supreme Court.” And if Gorsuch’s confirmation is the only legacy Trump walks away from office with, it will be a great one.

In politics, just like in golf, luck counts. The fact that Trump launched an attack against Syria while his Chinese counterpart was present and able to witness the aftermath in the media was a powerful stroke of good luck for the White House. In case Xi needed any reminding of just how serious Trump may be about taking action in North Korea, the Syria attack couldn’t have been a better example or come at a better time. By all accounts, expectations for their meeting were low. But reports indicate that Trump and Xi had substantive, mostly positive conversations, perhaps leaving the Chinese president with a lot to think about. [snip]

But Trump’s luck didn’t end there. He caught another break with the Rice scandal being revealed when it was. The story has legs, and it’s become a counterweight to the media’s appetite for a Trump-Russia connection. The unmasking fiasco is distracting from the circus show that is the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation, but it won’t peak until Rice testifies under oath. And at that point, who knows which direction the investigation will take? For now, the intensity of the media’s search for a silver bullet in the faux Trump-Russia connection has subsided.

Um, it wasn’t “luck”. President Trump knows who did what to whom on the Rice story. What is happening now is a theatrical lifting of the curtain and a spot light hitting the culprits. President Trump made his own “luck” on Susan Rice.

President Trump also prepared for “luck” on the meeting with President Xi by hiring some tough hombres who have studied China trade policies for a long time. President Trump also sent top emissaries such as Secretary of State Tillerson to South Korea in previous weeks to pave the way for action on North Korea. As President Xi had his entrée served, President Trump knew what was about to happen in Syria. President Trump knew that the main course at dinner was a lesson to President Xi on what to do about North Korea.

North Korea itself was on the menu.

Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Obama Dimocrats, are about to get a fork stuck in them too.

The Miracle Called President Trump And The Salvation Of Our Republic

Update: Thursday, April 6, 2017 via President Trump can be summarized “during the day he nuked the Senate, at night he bombed Syria“. Yet some dolts don’t see the brilliance and miracle of President Trump.

Let’s quickly answer the question the dolts (Conservative Treehouse as usual does not understand complicated matters and after the Syria attack many commenters began to attack President Trump) don’t get. The dolts stupidly declared “There is ZERO motive for President Bashir Assad to weaponize chemical weapons against his people.” Um, idiots the motive for Assad, and Putin for that matter is the same motive all tin pot dictators always have: They are testing the new American president.

With every new administration come tests from foreign enemies of the United States. Why did Syria’s Assad burn his own people with chemical weapons? Because Assad and the Russians and IRAN wanted to slap President Donald J. Trump in the same way every lowlife in the world enjoyed slapping Barack Obama. Back in April 4, 2009 we wrote about the time Barack Obama was tested by America’s enemies. The dolts at the Treehouse should read our smart analysis to understand how foreign enemies test new presidents and see what smart analysis looks like: World Leaders And North Korea To Barack Obama: “Sucker”. That’s right you dolts, in April 2009 the new Obama administration was tested by North Korea. In April 2017, it is President Donald J. Trump who is tested.

How well did President Trump do on his first major test? It’s a miracle. Check out our comments section to get more details as they come in but first reactions from Big Pink were right on target:

For the record we are not in favor of military involvement in Syria. But this chemical attack was a direct challenge to President Trump to test him and see if he was as weak as Obama.

President Trump has turned lemons into lemonade. President Trump with this attack, which took place during President Xi and Trump at dinner, sends a message to China, North Korea and every adversary:I am not weak Obama. My name is Trump. Donald J. Trump!

Look at what President Trump managed to do with his first international crisis:

(1) He had a peaceful dinner with President Xi of China after he secretly ordered the calibrated attack on Syria. Before President Trump made the public announcement of the attack he politely informed President Xi. The unstated message to President Xi: “I am not Barack Hussein Obama. Tell that to the North Korean freaks you’ve been helping. If you don’t want a massive immigration crisis on your southern border get these North Korean freaks back in the circus and off the streets or I will do the job for you.” China and North Korea get the message and American allies in the region such as Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, respect the new President of the United States.

(2) Russia’s Vladimir Putin just got schlonged by testicular fortitude Trump. There goes the notion that Trump is Putin’s plant. Iran got schlonged too. You’re not dealing with Barack Hussein Obama – You’re dealing with President Donald J. Trump. Freaks. As to American allies like Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the rest, they too have respect for the new President of the United States and know that unlike Barack Hussein Obama, President Donald J. Trump is the one that does the schlonging and the slapping. The Egyptian President and the Jordanian King both of whom visited President Trump this past week must have especially wide smiles – but not as wide as the grin on Prime Minister Netanyahu.

(3) American allies world-wide, in North and South America, in the European Union, in Asia, Great Britain, everywhere know there is an American President in charge once again that they can rely on. America’s enemies world-wide know there is an American President in charge once again that they must fear and negotiate with out of respect.

(4) President Trump dealt with America’s enemies foreign and domestic. Remember, the toilet known as the U.S. Congress goes on vacation, they call it “recess”, on Friday. What will these useless goofballs do? They can no longer claim that Trump is Putin’s plant. Will they stay on the job to deal with the ramifications of President Trump’s attack on Syria? Or will these useless pieces of baggage go home and leave foreign policy to President Trump? Those that want to stay to demand President Trump do their bidding will have to confront those that want to go on vacation.

If the Congress persists and insists on vacation as their priority, President Trump can make recess appointments. If the Congress goes on vacation President Trump will continue to have a free hand on foreign policy. If the Congress decides to shock us all and stay in Washington to work, President Trump can demand they also work on ObamaCare repeal, the budget that is due and the debt ceiling. President Trump wins and wins.

As we enter the season of miracles, more miracles – via the miraculous President Donald J. Trump.

————————————————–

This week the right, left, and center, can see the amazing miracle called President Trump. It’s not just the obvious things like Gorsuch or the Jerusalem shocker. On election night and the day following the election we declared that the immense vastness of the Trump victory was immeasurable. This week we continue to try to measure the immeasurable.

Consider the Susan Rice scandal. Take a step back from the daily/hourly to-and-fro developments in that scandal which is itself but a part of the Russia nonsense from Obama Dimocrats. Can you see how miraculous this Susan Rice scandal makes the Trump election victory? Can you?

Remember all the many indisputable reasons from Big Media and the political establishment as to why Trump could never win? Remember all the many times it was declared by Big Media and the GOP and Dimocrat political establishments, along with all the economic and educational institutions of power that “it’s over for Trump”? Now add to all that what we have learned from the Susan Rice scandal. The Trump election victory becomes even more incredible, yea “miraculous” than any have previously understood.

TabletMag lays it all out. The TabletMag article was summarized in our comments section, but we recommend a full read to understand the gargantuan beast that opposed Donald J. Trump’s election, inauguration, and eventual presidency:

“At some point, the administration weaponized the NSA’s legitimate monitoring of communications of foreign officials to stay one step ahead of domestic political opponents,” says a pro-Israel political operative who was deeply involved in the day-to-day fight over the Iran Deal. “The NSA’s collections of foreigners became a means of gathering real-time intelligence on Americans engaged in perfectly legitimate political activism—activism, due to the nature of the issue, that naturally involved conversations with foreigners. We began to notice the White House was responding immediately, sometimes within 24 hours, to specific conversations we were having. At first, we thought it was a coincidence being amplified by our own paranoia. After a while, it simply became our working assumption that we were being spied on.”

This is what systematic abuse of foreign-intelligence collection for domestic political purposes looks like: Intelligence collected on Americans, lawmakers, and figures in the pro-Israel community was fed back to the Obama White House as part of its political operations. The administration got the drop on its opponents by using classified information, which it then used to draw up its own game plan to block and freeze those on the other side. And—with the help of certain journalists whose stories (and thus careers) depend on high-level access—terrorize them.

Barack Obama weaponized the intelligence gathering machine on behalf of his Iran terrorist pals. Then Barack Obama used the weaponized intelligence apparatus to target and destroy Donald J. Trump. It’s a miracle that Donald Trump survived and thrived to become President Donald J. Trump.

Fox News in 2015 reported on the Obama corruption of the intelligence apparatus in this country to benefit his Iran terrorist pals:

The sweeping up of conversations between Israeli officials and U.S. lawmakers began in earnest earlier this year, ahead of a March visit to Capitol Hill by Netanyahu to speak out against the developing Iran nuclear deal, and continued through this past September, when the deadline for Congress to block the deal passed.

The Wall Street Journal also reported on the Obama corruption of intelligence gathering for his Watergating of Iran terrorist opponents:

The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

The Obama corruption of the government intelligence agencies, whose mission is to protect the Republic from foreign enemies, turned those intelligence agencies into a threat on the Republic. Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence apparatus to attack Israel and defend Iran terrorists. Then Barack Obama turned that vast apparatus against Donald J. Trump.

It is a miracle. Nothing less than a miracle. Donald J. Trump overcame all the insurmountable odds that are somewhat “normal” in a political campaign. Donald J. Trump also overcame all the corrupt insurmountable corruptions of a politicized and weaponized intelligence gathering infrastructure to become President Donald J. Trump. It is nothing less than a miracle.

As the indefatigable Catherine Herridge reports the spying on American citizens associated with Trump was total:

Reports in unmasking controversy were detailed, had info about ‘everyday lives’

The intelligence reports at the center of the Susan Rice unmasking controversy were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file, according to a Republican congressman familiar with the documents.

This is information about their everyday lives,” Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence committee said. “Sort of like in a divorce case where lawyers are hired, investigators are hired just to find out what the other person is doing from morning until night and then you try to piece it together later on.” [snip]

Nunes has consistently stated that the files caused him deep concern because the unmasking went beyond the former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and the information was not related to Moscow.

Herridge details how only 20 persons are authorized to approve “unmasking” requests so eventually we will see who it was that helped Susan Rice in her corruptions. Herridge also details how unusual what Susan Rice did is by showing how very rare it is. Herridge makes it clear that the corruption of the intelligence agency started before the presidential election in 2016. Herridge quotes Trey Gowdy of the intelligence committee as saying “It would be nice to know the universe of people who have the power to unmask a U.S. citizen’s name, because that might provide something of a roadmap to investigate who might’ve actually disseminated a masked U.S. citizen’s name.

There is an “extensive government paper trail, that can be audited within the NSA, that shows who requested the unmasking, on what basis, and whether it was granted. This raises more questions about Rice, her motivation and whether it was authorized higher up, offering cover.”

Chicken littles and their ilk, not fit for foxholes in battle, will bemoan and whine about Chairman Devin Nunes recusal today from the Intelligence Committee investigation into Russia and the election. These Chicken Little types always whine that the sky is falling. But Trey Gowdy and his allies are still on the Intelligence Committee. Chairman Nunes now does not have to reveal anything to the Schiff-heads on the Committee. And the fact that Obama Dimocrats took out Chairman Nunes by filing complaints about his handling of classified information with the Ethics Committee will continue the inquiry into the corruptions by Obama and Obama thugs of classified information.

Chicken Little and her ilk of losers will not understand that it does not matter if there is a fight, what matters is that there is a fighter. Fighters win fights whether the fight is sought or comes unbidden. What matters is that President Trump is a fighter:

The Trump administration has escalated its feud with the Obama administration, creating a virtually unprecedented situation in which the current and former U.S. executive branches are openly fighting.

President Trump on Wednesday said Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice might have committed a crime by requesting the identities of Trump associates who were incidentally swept up in surveillance, though he cited no evidence to back up his claim.

I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Trump told The New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.

Gowdy at the Intelligence Committee. Big Pink on the job. President Trump in a fight for the Republic.

This is a fight for the Republic. Ann Althouse makes a smart observation:

I hope Susan Rice was keeping tabs on Trump’s Russia ties.
By Michelle Goldberg at Slate.

I love the way the messaging turns on a dime.

One minute it’s ridiculous to think that the Obama administration was doing surveillance on the Trump campaign. The next minute the Obama administration was doing the right thing if it did surveillance on the Trump campaign.

The Obama Dimocrat messaging has changed. That clues you in on the true impact of the Susan Rice revelations. Before, the Obama Dimocrat claim was that spying on Trump was crazy talk from a deranged President Trump. Now, the Obama Dimocrat claim is that spying on Trump was the necessary and smart thing to do. Winner? President Donald J. Trump the Miraculous savior of the Republic.

Want more miracles? A new Gallup poll, always an unfriendly poll for Trump, makes clear that despite all the attacks on President Trump from Big Media, President Trump has won the battle against Big Media:

Six in 10 in US See Partisan Bias in News Media

62% say news media favors one political party over the other
More believe media favors Democrats than Republicans
Clear majority of Americans say media is “often inaccurate”

In a contentious political landscape, Americans increasingly believe the news media generally favors one political party over the other. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the media has a favorite, up from about 50% in past years. Just 27% now say the media favors neither major party. [snip]

Gallup asked those who perceive political bias in the news media to say which party the news media favors. Almost two-thirds (64%) of those who believe the media favors a political party say it is the Democratic Party. Only about a third as many (22%) believe the media favors Republicans.

Game Over! Miraculous President Donald J. Trump has won the battle against Big Media although Big Media won’t report the news.

Think we exaggerate about the miraculous power of President Donald J. Trump? Remember all that talk about President Donald J. Trump moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and how that would bring on World War III? Remember how recently despite Obama Dimocrat opposition the Trump American ambassador to Israel – who advocates for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem – David Friedman was confirmed which would surely bring on World War III?

Well, David Friedman is not yet the American ambassador to Israel but there is a President Donald J. Trump miracle in Israel now that Iran pal Obama is hiding out in Polynesia. Yeah, Russia is catching up to President Trump:

Russia recognizes west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated in a surprise announcement on Thursday, obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post. [snip]

No other country in the world recognizes any part of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry reads, “We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

This is a sharp shift in Russian policy, which until now has formally held that Jerusalem should eventually be under a permanent international regime. The statement appears in English on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Russian web site.

While officials in Jerusalem interpreted this to mean that recognition of west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will only come once east Jerusalem becomes the capital of a Palestinian state, The Jerusalem Post has learned that Moscow intends this recognition to go into effect immediately.

Russia moved to President Trump’s daring position on Israel, before David Friedman could bring on “World War III” doing what Russia has done. Because of Passover holidays and the “weeklong shutdown” in Israel which starts on April 10, Trump’s approved ambassador to Israel won’t be on the job in Israel. Because of protocol decisions by the Israeli government it is likely that David Friedman will be welcomed as the American ambassador to Israel in June. But the miracle, the embassy move reason Obama Dimocrats offered to not confirm David Friedman, has already happened. Jerusalem is now recognized as the capital of Israel by Russia and the United States will soon also confirm the position of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. World War III averted. A President Donald J. Trump miracle.

Why did Russia make this startling declaration? Perhaps this was all a well-timed dance by President Trump to allow Russia to take the credit for a President Trump policy. It could be. But we suspect that it is a President Trump miracle. The miracle in this case is that President Trump’s clear-eyed assessment of the political situation in the world is now accepted by Russia.

Why would Russia wake up? Maybe it is this very underreported story by American Big Media:

At least 14 people were murdered and 50 injured in the blast and horrifying pictures show bodies, blood and wreckage strewn across the carriage of the train blown up between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations in Russia’s second city.

Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the suspected attacked who also planted a second device hidden in a fire extinguisher that failed to explode. [snip]

Police believe he has close links to radical Islamists.

Jalilov’s home country of Kyrgyzstan, which borders Kazakhstan and China in central Asia, is predominately Muslim and has seen up to 500 citizens travel to Syria to join ISIS. Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were also born there.

Candidate for president Donald J. Trump frequently declared that he thought Russia could be a partner against Muslim terrorists. Russia this week got a taste of Muslim terror from the same source Boston sampled. Quislings in the West, particularly in Germany, don’t want to fight Muslim terrorists:

A decision by the city of Berlin not to illuminate its most famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate, in the colors of the Russian flag to show solidarity with St Petersburg after an attack has provoked anger, with critics calling it a scandal.

In the past after attacks in other countries, the city has beamed the colors of flags of France, Turkey, Britain and the Netherlands onto the Brandenburg Gate, which divided East and West Berlin in the Cold War. [snip]

While lights at the Eiffel Tower in Paris will be switched off at midnight on Tuesday as a mark of respect for the victims of the St Petersburg attack, other European landmarks have been lit in their usual way.

The head of German broadcaster Deutsche Welle’s Russian service Ingo Mannteufel said the decision belittled victims of the St Petersburg attack at a time when the German government says it values the Russian people even if it disagrees with the Kremlin.

(The West) has a moral and political duty to show solidarity with the victims of terrorism in Russia. That the Brandenburg Gate was not illuminated in the Russian colors was therefore wrong, yes, it is even a scandal,” he wrote.

There are those in the West that want war with Russia. These same forces do everything to appease Muslim terrorists. Every attempt is made to goad President Trump to turn his eyes from Muslim terrorism and onto Russia. Thus far it has not worked.

The Susan Rice scandal and all the Obama Dimocrat perversions of the intelligence apparatus in this country have been geared towards leading President Trump into conflict with Russia. But even in the most totalitarian leftist precincts, warnings are sounded about this soon to fail tactic:

Putin Derangement Syndrome Arrives

Whatever the truth about Trump and Russia, the speculation surrounding it has become a dangerous case of mass hysteria [snip]

For seemingly the 100th time, social media is exploding. This is it! The big reveal! [snip]

One way we recognize a mass hysteria movement is that everyone who doesn’t believe is accused of being in on the plot. This has been going on virtually unrestrained in both political and media circles in recent weeks.

The aforementioned Mensch, a noted loon who thinks Putin murdered Andrew Breitbart but has somehow been put front and center by The Times and HBO’s Real Time, has denounced an extraordinary list of Kremlin plants.

She’s tabbed everyone from Jeff Sessions (“a Russian partisan”) to Rudy Giuliani and former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom (“agents of influence”) to Glenn Greenwald (“Russian shill”) to ProPublica and Democracy Now! (also “Russian shills”), to the 15-year-old girl with whom Anthony Weiner sexted (really, she says, a Russian hacker group called “Crackas With Attitudes”) to an unnamed number of FBI agents in the New York field office (“moles”). And that’s just for starters.

Others are doing the same. Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, upon seeing the strange behavior of Republican Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes, asked “what kind of dossier” the Kremlin has on Nunes. [snip]

Even Bernie Sanders has himself been accused of being a Putin plant by Mensch. But even he’s gotten on board of late, asking, “What do the Russians have on Mr. Trump?”

So even people who themselves have been accused of being Russian plants are now accusing people of being Russian plants. As the Russians would say, it’s enough to make your bashka hurt.

The entire article from leftist Matt Taibbi is worth reading to fully understand the crackpot left. At times it is comic as when it describes Senator Mark Warner’s antics which merit a trip to Bellevue insane asylum. But mostly it is a map of leftist lunacy. Even leftist loon Noam Chomsky thinks the entire Russia crackpottery is “a joke”.

Mostly though the Taibbi article is a summary of the miracle that is President Donald J. Trump. How did Donald J. Trump, short of a miracle possibly win the presidential election???

Since 2012 we often declared that all you needed to know was that 2016 would be a “change” election. We predicted a Trump victory on the Friday before the election and put forth our election map – which left open as “too close to call” the pivotal states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. We knew Trump would win and endorsed him because Trump was the change candidate. We were sure the candidate of change would win. But really!!!! With all the Susan Rice/Barack Obama corruptions of the election process how in hell did Donald J. Trump manage to win??? The odds against this victory become more vast, more immeasurable, the more this scandal develops.

It was a miracle.

President Trump today, against the weak Republican leadership, against the always ready to cave Republican senate, effectively managed to get Neil Gorsuch confirmed. The official vote will be tomorrow but it is a miracle that this has happened. We thought it would happen, but still, it is a miracle.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds Trump became President. Now we discover that Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence agencies to attack Trump.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds from Obama Dimocrats he is protecting America’s allies like Israel and attacking America’s enemies.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against Obama Dimocrat attempts to subvert the Constitution and GOP weaklings afraid of their own shadows, Donald J. Trump will be able to appoint his nominees to the Supreme Court.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. The great miracle is that President Donald J. Trump is the salvation of the Republic.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrats will not subvert the Constitution further in their attempt to only allow a Supreme Court justice of their own choosing from confirmation. The democratic election will have consequences. President Donald J. Trump will be able to follow the Constitution and appoint Supreme Court Justices.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrat attempts to bring about war with Russia and protect Muslim terrorist nations will not succeed.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Here the people rule. Government Of, By, and For the people, shall not perish from the Earth. It is not the intelligence agencies that will determine our elections. Here the people rule.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle and the salvation of our Republic.

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!: Gorsuch Filibuster Reality

The left is disgusting, but the right ain’t too bright. On March 2, we wrote Conservative Treehouse doesn’t make sense:

Some on the right foolishly and mistakenly believe the madness will break during the Supreme Court confirmation fight for soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. Some on the right, not understanding Obama Dimocrats, foolishly don’t understand the political battle as they concoct wild theories about why the filibuster won’t be deployed against soon-to-be Justice Gorsuch. These are dangerous delusions. The left is not even near full madness.

Conservative Treehouse dreamed up some silly scenario, so bizarre that you can read and reread it and it still can’t be understood, not even by the initial commentors, about why Neil Gorsuch was a shoe-in and no filibuster would be deployed by Chuck Schumer. The “rationale” for such a bizarre conclusion was too silly to even explain in any reality-based way. The Conservative Treehouse “analysis”: “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will not filibuster the nomination. Relax, it’s 100%. 100%. Done.

That Treehouse analysis is nutty as a squirrel’s sac. It did not get any better after Chuck Schumer confirmed that indeed, as we predicted, there will be a filibuster. After delusional theory #1 exploded, the Treehouse churned up some more nutty butter to spread which made as little sense as their first flub. It was something about Russians and… well… this latest theory was again too silly to give serious consideration to.

Let’s explain political reality, as seen by Obama Dimocrats, to Conservative Treehouse so they can begin to add some bit of obvious to the discussion.

First, Conservative Treehouse and the not-too-bright right, think that it is the next Supreme Court confirmation battle or the one after that (when presumably a left wing Justice leaves the high court) that matters and that Gorsuch’s seat on the high court is somewhat of an afterthought. This is supremely stupid.

In all caps: GORSUCH IS THE BATTLE THAT MUST BE WON! It is not the next confirmation, nor the one after that that matters. Chuck Schumer understands that Neil Gorsuch must be defeated because Gorsuch’s confirmation will be a devastating blow to the left from which the left will not recover for generations. Neil Gorsuch returns the court to a conservative majority. That majority might not be the perfect conservative majority of the ideologically right wing – but Neil Gorsuch will return a 5-4 majority to the Supreme Court. THAT IS THE BATTLE. THAT IS EVERYTHING.

After the GOP ObamaCare repeal and replace defeat, Chuck Schumer knows that one more big defeat for President Trump and the Republicans will mean the GOP is neutered and the 2018 elections become a real contest with likely Obama Dimocrat victories unimaginable until now. The consequences of a Neil Gorsuch defeat means that President Trump would have to name a new nominee to the Supreme Court who would have to be a centrist (and still not be confirmed) and more time would be burned up and less and less could be accomplished by President Trump.

Chuck Schumer is doing what any brilliant General knows to do when your forces are weak and outmatched by the opposition: stall for time. In time, the stronger forces grow weaker and the weaker forces grow stronger.

Now, some on the not-too-bright-right will respond that “no, the big battle will be the one to replace the dead Justice Ginsberg.” Um, stupid. If Justice Ginsberg dies (or resigns) while Trump is president, President Trump does not really have to do anything. The Supreme Court would go from a 5-4 conservative majority to a 5-3 conservative majority on the court via subtraction. A one vote majority would become a two vote majority automatically. Of course, President Trump would make a nomination and then the majority would become a 6-3 majority. But 5-3 or 6-3 the left can add single digits. The Obama Dimocrats like Chuck Schumer understand all this. The left knows Neil Gorsuch is THE battle even if the right is not too bright. Conservative Treehouse and the not-too-bright-right hallucinated themselves into a dream that Gorsuch is not the most important battle for the left.

In addition, the left will frequently circumvent the political process by going to the courts to gain in the judicial arena what they lost in the political arena. That’s why Barack Obama and Harry Reid destroyed the judicial filibuster to get Obama nominees to the district and appellate courts confirmed.

For the left, Gorsuch is everything. For the left all the gains at the district and appellate level will be eliminated if the high court regains a conservative majority. The left is correct, the right is wrong, in this analysis.

Chuck Schumer also understands that 2018 will be a very difficult election for Obama Dimocrats because so many Dimocrats are running and many of those will fight for reelection in red states that Donald J. Trump won with wide margins; while few Republicans are up for reelection at all and most of those are in red states. Chuck Schumer also understands that the dimwits on the left, unlike the right, rarely vote in off year elections.

Chuck Schumer and the left further understand that their hope in 2018 and 2020 is to run a “base” election. To run a “base” election the base has to be happy. The DailyKooks left base will not be happy if Schumer does not filibuster Gorsuch.

Once again, for the left the Gorsuch confirmation battle is the battle of all battles. They know there is no “next”.

The left also understands the weakness on the right. There are several GOP senators that are in many ways closer to the left than they are to the right. Senators Murkowski, Collins, Graham, and McCain, are always ready to join a “gang” of eight or four to block victory and grasp defeat. For these four senators what matters is the traditions of the senate and collegiality but most of all flattery from Big Media. They also don’t want to see the filibuster destroyed because that would make the senate too much like the low rent House.

Some senators also know that “what goes around comes around”. Get rid of the minority friendly judicial filibuster now, and when the majority becomes the minority they will have lost a last resort weapon.

Because the GOP only has 52 votes out of 100 in the senate Senators Murkowski, Collins, Graham, and McCain can sorta filibuster the death of the filibuster. Yes, these four can kill the kill-the-filibuster crew. That the confirmation filibuster will be killed by the Obama Dimocrats the moment they seize power and it becomes advantageous to do so does not mean much to these four.

Or… maybe not? There is some good and unexpected news on this judicial confirmation filibuster fight:

Eliminating the filibuster would break Senate precedent and make it impossible for Democrats to hold the nominee to a 60-vote threshold, allowing Republicans to approve Gorsuch with a simple majority.

Graham told conservative radio show host Mike Gallagher that he would vote for the nuclear option if necessary.

Whatever it takes to get him on the court, I will do,” Graham said, after being asked about using the nuclear option.

If my Democratic colleagues choose to filibuster this guy, then they will be telling me that they don’t accept the election results — 306 electoral votes — that they’re trying to delegitimize President Trump,” Graham continued. “And that’s not right, and we would have to change the rules to have the Supreme Court like everybody else.” [snip]

I hope that we can get 60 votes and not change 200-plus years of history, but I will do whatever’s necessary, but I’ve been a pretty balanced guy and enough is enough,” Graham said.

If Graham won’t crumble, will McCain? Good news there too:

In a closely divided Senate (Republicans hold a 52-48 majority), it would only take three Republicans to let Schumer have his way, but comments from several Senate Republicans suggest they’re not going to give in to Democratic demands.

Arizona senator John McCain hinted Thursday afternoon that he’s ready to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch with a simple majority if Senate Democrats take the unprecedented step of filibustering a Supreme Court nominee. Asked what Republicans should do if 41 or more Democrats try to block Gorsuch, McCain told THE WEEKLY STANDARD: “I think we’ll address it when it happens. None of us want to do it, but we’re going to confirm Gorsuch.” [snip]

Arizona’s Jeff Flake told TWS: “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, but I think we’ll get him confirmed.”

“There’s no reason for anybody to filibuster,” said Lisa Murkowski, a moderate from Alaska. “Gorsuch is a good guy.”

You can’t take anything for granted with that crew but at least for now they are making the right noises. Not that Chuck Schumer believes them. Chuck Schumer is playing for time and he knows how to play these Big Media compliant senators. Chuck Schumer thinks he will get himself a traitor or two and win the big battle:

Schumer confident Democrats have votes to block Gorsuch
The Senate minority leader is prepared to force Mitch McConnell to try to invoke the ‘nuclear option.’

Chuck Schumer is prepared to push the Senate into a nuclear confrontation over the Supreme Court. [snip]

Dismissing the notion of a deal to confirm Gorsuch floated by some members of his caucus this week, Schumer all but declared that Donald Trump’s nominee will not receive the requisite eight Democratic votes — and that it will be up to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as to whether to try to blow up the filibuster to get Gorsuch through. [snip]

If Schumer stops Gorsuch during a filibuster vote in early April — and the New Yorker was brimming with confidence that he will — it will almost certainly force McConnell’s hand on the so-called nuclear option. Schumer is betting McConnell does not have the votes to do away with the 60-vote requirement for Supreme Court nominees.

“I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion that Mitch McConnell changes the rules,” Schumer said. “There are people in his caucus who really don’t want to change the rules, OK?

This is not about “payback” for Merrick Garland. The wilted Garland confirmation that never was excuse is a way for Obama Dimocrats and Big Media to justify the filibuster to the public. The right wing delusionalists do not get it but the leftists understand that Gorsuch is the big battle:

Liberal activists warn party’s lawmakers: Primaries are coming [snip]

Frustrated by the party’s performance on Capitol Hill and emboldened by the mass protests against President Donald Trump, a coalition of progressive groups say they are open to supporting primary challengers next year against Democratic members of the House and Senate – even if many inside the party believe that intra-party races might ultimately only help the Republican Party gain more power. [snip]

“Every single Democratic incumbent considering aiding and abetting the Trump administration needs to consider their jobs at high risk,” said Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America, a grassroots progressive advocacy group based in Vermont. [snip]

The base is more than restless – it’s furious,” said Ben Wikler, Washington director for MoveOn.org, a longtime and well-known liberal advocacy group. “It’s up to each and every elected Democrat: If they want to be part of the resistance, they’ll have an army by their side.

“And if they don’t, they’ll have to face the biggest grassroots movement that I’ve seen in my life,” he added.

The threats are representative of a rift within the Democratic Party over its midterm election strategy, between its more moderate establishment and an emboldened liberal faction. Many members of the party establishment think its lawmakers, especially those who represent states of districts won by Trump last year, must win over Republican voters by finding times to cooperate with the president.

Adding to the tension is that 10 Senate Democrats are running for re-election next year in states Trump won during last year’s presidential campaign. Five of the states were also won by former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012. [snip]

Anything short of an all-out effort from Democrats to stop the judge, including forcing Senate Republicans to lower the existing 60-vote threshold for confirmation of Supreme Court justices, will incite the base, they say.

The not-too-bright right must understand the mentality of the left and not succumb to nuts-falling-from-the-tree theories. For the left, Gorsuch is THE battle. And the left is correct. Gorsuch is THE battle! Gorsuch means 5-4 for generations (or 6-3, or 7-2). For Obama Dimocrats up for reelection in 2018 the crossfire of left and right attacks will be most bloody. Everyway you look at it they lose.

So why is this a “Glory, Glory, Hallelujah” moment? For four reasons.

Reason #1: A Gorsuch confirmation victory on April 3 (when the Judiciary Committee votes) and on April 8 (or before, when the entire U.S. Senate votes) will wipe away the defeat on the ObamaCare battle for the GOP. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #2: A Gorsuch confirmation victory means more victories as the 5-4 majority will be restored. On President Trump’s immigration policies these will be especially important victories as they will on those ObamaCare cases which will finish off ObamaCare, all thus far stifled by the current 4-4 split on the high court. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #3: A Gorsuch confirmation victory means that as we have long suggested and advocated, if you are going to get rid of the judicial confirmation filibuster do it as early as possible so that President Trump can effect his policies more easily for eight years. As we wrote previously, Barack Obama dumped the filibuster for the lower court confirmations very late in his term instead of early on when the boob could have done even more damage than he did. The GOP with President Trump should not make the same stupid mistake. If it is to be done, do it quickly and early – a philosophy we share with the Bard. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Reason #4: This confirmation will make later confirmations faster, easier. There will be other confirmation battles if the Gorsuch battle goes well and Gorsuch gets on the high court before the late April arguments are heard and voted on. The end of the judicial filibuster means that President Trump will be free to appoint whom he wants without fear of the Obama Dimocrats.

Contrary to what the TreeHouse theorizes about, a Gorsuch victory will make it more likely that the high court majority will be strengthened. That nonsense about Justice Kennedy assumes so much it is laughable. The facts are that once Neil Gorsuch is Justice Gorsuch – due to the end of the filibuster, some of the older conservative Justices will feel free to resign and be replaced with younger versions of themselves that will continue the Trump Legacy for generations.

Forty-nine year old Gorsuch replacing Scalia will be followed by forty-something year old replacements for Thomas and Kennedy (a more consistently conservative version too). On the left our bet is that faced with a younger and stronger 5-4 majority and the futility of resistance, Justice Breyer will call it quits to be followed by Justice Ginsberg.

The left could try to thwart all this via cooperation with President Trump. Schumer could try to work out deals with President Trump and cajole and sweet talk the President into going a bit more center on nominations and policy.

But Schumer and the left won’t cooperate. They will filibuster. They will fight. And President Trump will fight back. That’s why we say, Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
