Trump v Mueller Who Gets Who First? April 11, 2018

The recent raid by the Robert Mueller’s witch hunters on President Trump’s lawyer’s offices shows that we are nearing the third act.  The ever expanding search for a crime is reportedly now looking into a campaign donation that was made by a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch to the Trump Foundation in September 2015.  The donation was reportedly made after then-candidate Donald Trump gave a 20-minute speech at a European conference that promoted closer ties between Ukraine and the West.

Let’s see Hillary and the Clinton Crime Family get a pass for running a pay-to-play scam out of Foggy Bottom but the Persecutor-in-Chief has to take a microscope to this one donation.  Sounds like the creature from the Black Lagoon is alive and well in the Washington swamp.

Leading constitutional lawyer and longtime Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, in what he considers “a very serious escalation” of the special investigation into Russian interference of the 2016 election, called the FBI’s raid of the offices of President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday “a shocking and disturbing development.”  He added the development “should shock everybody, no matter what part of the partisan divide you’re on.”

According to Dershowitz, “This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.”  “If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America, jumping up and down,” he added.  “The deafening silence from the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling,” Dershowitz said.  Dershowitz recommended that Trump make a motion in court to take Cohen’s materials away from the FBI and make a judge decide what evidence can be used and which cannot.

What do some of the President’s allies have to say?

“Time to fire the FBI Director,” a sometime Trump adviser, Roger Stone, said in a tweet.

Other allies suggested that the Mueller investigation has become undisciplined or even criminal.

“It’s clear Mr. Mueller’s operation has nothing do with fair enforcement of the law or equal justice,” Joseph diGenova, a Washington lawyer who agreed to join the president’s legal team last month before potential conflicts of interest prevented his hiring, said in an appearance on Fox Business Network. “It is basically a bunch of mobsters.”

Congress, he said, should impeach Rosenstein for not complying with an August 2017 subpoena seeking records related to the origin of the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

New York Post writer Michael Goodwin has some things to say about the Mueller witch hunt.  “The violent swings of the leaky pendulum make this an excellent moment to call timeout on the Mueller probe. What does he have, where is he going and when is he going to get there?”  “Those are basic questions that need to be answered. The American people deserve facts instead of waters muddied by partisanship, innuendo and special access to biased big-media companies.”  “Given the stakes, the public has a right to know at this point what it all adds up to. If Mueller won’t speak for himself, his handler, Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who created Mueller, should speak for him.”  “The endless leaks are the final straw.  The Mueller probe is the most important investigation in a generation and is casting a cloud over a presidency.  If this were a probe involving a third-level bureaucrat, assassination-by-leak would be distasteful but not as meaningful.  But this is the presidency, and even Trump haters should be appalled at the shoddy process.”

Lou Dobbs said, “We’re witnessing an orchestrated assault on the President of the United States,”

And conservative watchdog Judicial Watch official Tom Fitton on Monday night blasted the Department of Justice as “out of control,” and suggested special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “ought to be shut down.”

What do the Democrats have to say?

“If the president is thinking of using this raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russia probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don’t,” the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said in a statement.

And what does President Trump have to say about all this?

“These people have the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen. Democrats — all. Either Democrats or a couple of Republicans who worked for President Obama,” Trump said of the FBI investigators. “They’re not looking at the other side — Hillary Clinton… all of the crimes that were committed, all of the things that happened that everybody is very angry about from the Republican side and the independent side.”

“When I saw this, when I heard about it, that is a whole new level of unfairness.”

“They found no collusion what so ever with Russia.”

“I’ve wanted to keep it down. I’ve given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel. They continue to just go forward and here we are talking about Syria, we’re talking about a lot of serious things… and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now,” Trump said. “Actually it’s much more than that. You could say right after I won the nomination it started.”

Or as he tweeted this morning, “Attorney–client privilege is dead!”

And what about those of us out here in fly-over country who voted for and still support our president?

I think what we need now is a private meeting between the President and the Rosenstein-Mueller Cabal where Mr. Trump uses one of his best catch phrases, “You’re fired!”

Let the chips fall where they may.

There is a silent coup in progress waged by the government party against a duly elected president.  If the creature from the Black Lagoon can manage to lead the denizens of the swamp in overthrowing the man we elected to drain the swamp.  The lie will have been exposed America has become a functioning oligarchy disguised as a nonfunctioning democratic republic.

The Trump Agenda What We Voted For September 6, 2017

Remember the campaign?  Trump leapt in front of a parade that began in 2009 with the birth of the TEA Party Movement.  The Trump campaign embodied everything those who wanted America to recover from the Obama debacle desired.  What it proclaimed, what we were promised was an end to open borders, a repeal and replace of Obamacare, tax reform, and an end to give-away trade deals that have impoverished and debilitated us.  In other words an America First administration supported by a do-something Congress.

And what have we gotten for our vote?  The RINOs led by Ryan, McConnell, McCain, Flake, and Graham continue to obstruct everything President Trump tries to do.  No repeal and replace.  No tax reform, no support on the immigrant ban, and no support in stopping the bogus Russian-under-every -table investigation.

The Republicans said they needed the House to stop Obama.  We gave them the House and they said they needed the Senate too.  We gave them both houses of Congress and they did nothing to stop Obama.  They said they needed the Presidency and then they could do something to right the ship-of-state.  We gave them the presidency and since then it’s become obvious these political hacks were stringing us along all along.

We need to hold their feet to the fire.  Call them.  Email them.  Show up at their town meetings.  Let them know we want them to make America great again.  Let them know we want what we voted for.  We want an America First government.

I doubt that any amount of lobbying by those of us in fly-over country will have any impact on the crooked lawyers and others who hold the levers of power no matter what political shell-game party they say they belong to.  There is only one party in Congress and it’s a two-headed bird of prey out to eat our lunch.

Watch for an acceleration of the witch hunt.  Watch for movement on the impeachment front.  Watch for a complete sell-out of everything we voted for in the interests of what the special interests paid for.

The AntiFa Blackshirts and other bully boys who serve as the shock troops for the silent coup will not stop until there’s blood in the water.  The ABCCBSNBCPBSNPRCNNMSNBC Cartel will continue to cover-up the truth and proclaim the lie.  The Neocons have re-captured our foreign policy and are driving us towards the cliff.

It’s time for all of us who voted for President Trump to prepare for the counter-revolution.  Like Charley Brown trying to kick the football we keep on trying and trying no matter how many times they move the ball.  America, the greatest experiment in freedom in human history is worth trying to save from the statists and their collective fever dreams of utopia.

Now is the time for all patriots to come to the aid of their country.  Make your voice heard.  Raise your hand and vote by participating in the process for making America great again.

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

I Smell Some Rats March 27, 2017

After the election the stock market took off like a rocket.  Job creation zoomed toward the stratosphere.  Today as the chameleon Progressive RINOs crawl out from under the sheep’s clothing they use to disguise themselves in every election.  As they follow their leaders John McCain and Lindsey Graham in attacking President Trump and doing everything they can to thwart his agenda the markets are beginning to stumble.

In this column I have noted for a long time that if we want the economy to shake off the shackles of the collectivist chains it isn’t rocket science.  Cut through the Gordian Knot of regulations which strangle business and lower the punishing tax rates that steal the fruit of producers flushing it down the Washington money hole.  Have you ever wondered why we see signs that say share the wealth but we never see signs that say share the work?  In any society that taxes Peter to pay Paul eventually everyone changes their name to Paul.

One of the maxims of economics is if you want more of something subsidize it.  If you want less tax it.  Look at the policies of the Progressives since 1989.  They’ve turned a safety net into a hammock so is it any wonder we have so many with the free time to be professional protestors demanding more?

Now that the Ryan led House has been prevented from pushing Obamacare Lite down our throats.  The Donald says he wants tax reform.  As a matter of fact he now regrets that he didn’t work on tax reform first.  How long will it take for McCain and Company to oppose that?  Business people are beginning to see all the rats have not left the ship even though it is drowning in twenty trillion dollars of debt.

The debt ceiling will be raised.  The lead from behind diplomacy of the Apologize-in-Chief left potential wars looming on the horizon in Korea and Syria.   Either one could blossom overnight into major sinkholes for the Trump Administration.

Once, no twice America voted for the smoke and mirrors of hope and change.  Now we have voted for drain the swamp and build the wall.  In the first case we reaped the whirlwind of retreat and defeat.  And with the cheer leading of McCain, Graham, and others reaching across the aisle to maintain the strings of the Lilliputians the American Gulliver can’t seem to break free.

Calling for special prosecutors to inventigate the mythical links between President Trump and Russian spies, evidently hiding under every bush, the push for impeachment hearings will roll through the halls Congress as sure as liberals love taxes and regulations.

I am beginning to think we should carve the faces of McCain, Graham, Schumer and Franken on the sides of Mount Trashmore.   A fitting tribute to those who labor long and hard to impose upon us their vision of America as just one more state in a New World Order run by the nameless faceless bureaucrats infesting 760 United Nations Plaza.

Defund the UN?  I say throw them out and let The Donald turn the whole thing into condominiums.  And who knows, after their impeachment debacle fails maybe the voters will wake up and throw the bums out along with their globalist bathwater.

When Patrick Henry was elected to attend the Constitutional Convention he famously said no.  When asked why he wouldn’t attend he answered, “I smelt a rat.”    What did he mean?  What did the man who said, “Give me liberty or give me death,” see coming in the wake of revolution?  Look at the best Congress money can buy and you will see what the smell was all about.
