Always keep your foes confused. If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are likely to do next. —George R.R. Martin
True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best. —Sinclair B. Ferguson
Our President has sustained the most vicious and vile attacks on his person, his wife, and his entire family. Truly, a man of weaker spirit could not have prevailed as he has. However, I question who advises and vets the people President Trump chooses. With all of President Trump’s brilliance and blue-collar panache, he seems to be lacking in discernment regarding those who surround him or is he trusting the wrong people to advise him?
Over 30 officials have left the Trump Administration, not including AG Jeff Sessions, Secretary Nikki Haley, and now Chief of Staff General John Kelly. There were a handful who should have stayed. Everyone now knows that General Mike Flynn was set-up and forced out, mainly because the intel community is scared spitless of him.
Putting this in perspective – the Obama administration had a turnover of 46 officials in his second term, the average is 76. President Truman took the prize and replaced all of Franklin Roosevelt’s officials when he took office. So, let’s not let the MSM get everyone’s panties in a wad regarding turnovers. The only thing that concerns me is who Trump chooses, who advised him and who vets the nominees.
There are many Never Trumpers out there even on Fox News, and in the administration. Both First Lady Melania and our President have said there were people in the West Wing neither of them trusted. There is not one person in the intelligence community (DOJ especially) who I would trust, and I wonder why FBI Director Wray hasn’t cleaned house. I think we know.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said in an interview that President Donald Trump has failed to keep his most important campaign promises. Carlson told Urs Gehriger of the Swiss weekly Die Weltwoche, “His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund Planned Parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things. I don’t think he’s capable. I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.” Link
Duh! Hey Tucker…what gave you the first clue that Congress is not on our President’s side? And when did you study our Constitution? Trump wanted the wall, the elimination of Obamacare, and defunding of Planned Parenthood, but that can’t happen without Congress helping our President. And you can thank Robert Mueller as FBI Director who was responsible for giving us Obamacare.
Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) was falsely charged and prosecuted in 2008 just 100 days before his re-election bid for what the FBI alleged was not paying full price for improvements to a cabin he owned in Alaska. In the midst of the prosecution, Stevens lost his re-election bid and, two years later, lost his life. This was a purposeful political assassination.
Large-scale misconduct was revealed through a whistleblower in an audit of the case, in which FBI agents and prosecutors, among many other things, withheld exculpatory evidence. Mueller targeted the Senator, he lost, and he would have been the vote that would have stopped Obamacare. Remember too Tucker, that Obama loved Mueller for wiping the FBI slates clean of Islamic terrorist activity, and kept him on for two extra years. Judge Emmet Sullivan overturned the Stevens case, and he is also the judge in General Flynn’s case. I hope Judge Sullivan hasn’t been living under a rock, and understands that this brilliant three-star General who spent 33 years as an intelligence officer was set up and never lied to anyone.
Tucker, you know bloody well that the left wants our borders open. Trump should shut down the government and keep it shut down until he gets the full 25 billion for the wall. By 2020, people will have forgotten the shutdown. Lindsey Graham is right…do it!
Planned Parenthood defunding is destroyed by every leftist judge and Trump has still cut a great amount. The number of baby killers in Congress and throughout our country are the problem, and that includes the judiciary.
New Chief of Staff
I was sorry to see General Kelly resign, but after losing a son in combat and working in the swamp for a year, I can understand his desire to go home to his family.
Thankfully, VP Pence’s former Chief of Staff, Nick Ayers, has refused the position. Mike Pence is a globalist insider and with Ayers as Chief of Staff, Pence would have had even more inside info to plan for his presidency. Remember Pence was the head of the transition team and brought in many establishment insiders. He has been funded by the Koch brothers and Dick and Betsy DeVos for years.
Republican Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the conservative Freedom Caucus; U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer; budget director Mick Mulvaney and Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker are all being considered.
AG Nominee William P. Barr
William Barr served as the 77th United States Attorney General from 1991 to 1993 during the first Bush administration. He is also a past employee of the CIA. Barr is a member of the Republican Party and is a devoutly pro-life. However, not all Republicans are conservative, and we know the entire Bush family voted for Hillary Clinton. The Bushes represent the establishment globalists in their party. But what really concerns me about William Barr is his propensity for spying on American citizens.
Mr. Barr strongly supports the Patriot Act which violates every American’s fourth amendment right to privacy. The Constitution provides us with more protection and safety than the surveillance state ever will.
An NSA Whistle-Blower tells all in this video to filmmaker Laura Poitras. She profiled William Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency who helped design a top-secret program he says is broadly collecting Americans’ personal data.
Barr would be favored by Robert Mueller as far as surveillance is concerned. Mueller implicitly argues that the perpetual and ubiquitous data collection of the digital and telephonic communications of law-abiding Americans is constitutional. For thorough documentation of same, see Louisiana State Senator John Milkovich’s book, Robert Mueller, Errand Boy for the New World Order.
It is also disturbing that Barr has been a big fan of taking people’s property through civil asset forfeiture without a conviction. Many poor people in our country have cash taken from them and then the government says, “Prove to us where you got the cash and then you can get it back,” the burden is on the individual. It’s a terrible thing called civil asset forfeiture and William Barr is a big fan.
During his first stint as Attorney General, Barr was involved in the Rodney King affair and in 1991, he confirmed federal indictments of the officers involved in the beating.
In October 1991, Barr appointed then retired Democratic Chicago judge Nicholas Bua as special counsel in the Inslaw scandal. In 1989, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jack Brooks, D-Texas, launched a three-year investigation into the Inslaw affair. In the resulting report, the Committee suggested that among others, Edwin Meese, while presidential counselor and later as attorney general, and Democrat D. Lowell Jensen a former assistant and deputy attorney general and former US district judge in San Francisco, conspired to steal PROMIS software.
Bua’s 1993 report found the DOJ of no wrong doing in the matter, despite a 12-year lawsuit by Bill Hamilton’s company, Inslaw, regarding the government theft of their software. One journalist, Danny Casolaro, died as he attempted to tell the story and boxes of documents relating to the case were destroyed, stolen, or conveniently “lost” by the DOJ. Software piracy, conspiracy, cover-up, stonewalling, covert action…just another decade at the corrupt DOJ.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh
America watched an unbelievably vile senate confirmation of this new Justice of the Supreme Court. In the latest ruling regarding hearing a case concerning states’ rights and the authority of Louisiana and Kansas to defund Planned Parenthood, Justice Kavanaugh sided with Chief Justice Roberts and the liberals. It takes the vote of four justices to agree to hear a case, and there were only three who wanted to hear it. Justices Alito, Thomas and Gorsuch. Bad decisions will now stand.
“So, what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?” Justice Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’ That makes the Court’s decision particularly troubling, as the question presented has nothing to do with abortion.” He continued, “It is true that these particular cases arose after several States alleged that Planned Parenthood affiliates had, among other things, engaged in ‘the illegal sale of fetal organs’ and ‘fraudulent billing practices,’ and thus removed Planned Parenthood as a state Medicaid provider… But these cases are not about abortion rights.”
Brett Kavanaugh may have tried to protect his own hide from the democrats desire to impeach him…or he may have buckled to the extreme left to salvage his own reputation. I expected him to put the babies before his own reputation, and he failed. Kavanaugh repeatedly described the court’s decision on Roe v. Wade as “settled law of the land” and “an important precedent.” Obviously, he believes in Stare Decisis.
Past Republican nominees of Supreme Court justices, Sandra Day O’Connor, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter and John Roberts have all been disappointments.
The issue was whether states can defund Planned Parenthood, and the case should have been heard, and the lower courts’ decisions overturned.
Washington insiders have said the two people who advise Trump are his daughter Ivanka and VP Pence. Ivanka is loved dearly by her father, and he listens to her advice. He surely knows that Ivanka and Jared were both registered democrats and are friends with Chelsea Clinton and many of the powerful New York Democrat families. This isn’t going to change, and I would surmise that Ivanka promotes moderate republicans at best, and leans far more to the left than does her father.
Vice President Mike Pence is another story. I have never trusted the man. I researched how he voted while in Congress for 12 years and he showed himself to be an open border and free trade aficionado. He was despised in Indiana after only one term as governor. He desires the presidency and he has long been funded by the Koch brothers and Dick and Betsy DeVos. He has known Kellyanne Conway for years, whose husband George daily denigrates our President. He is President Trump’s Trojan Horse.
Mike Pence carries a Bible out front, and a knife behind his back. He is friends with the neo-con Trotskyite Republicans who are stonewalling Trump’s promises of a wall, of elimination of Obamacare, of defunding Planned Parenthood and the United Nations.
The Koch brothers back full legalization of abortion, Agenda 21, gay marriage, stem cell research, amnesty, and open borders, and the billionaires fund organizations who promote their agendas. See these articles, The Pernicious Influence Of The Koch Brothers and The Koch Brothers, Purveyors Of Dark Money.
Apparently, no one vets the administration hires thoroughly. Loyalty is what counts, and never having said anything against Trump on social media. This is foolish at best, and destructive at worst. I could vet these people far better than anyone in this administration has thus far accomplished. It is appalling because it keeps our President open to disgrace, a good example is Rob Porter.
President Trump lost the most brilliant of men in his administration early on. That man was purposely set up by the corrupt Department of Justice, and Trump never should have allowed it. Neither did he do due diligence nor his homework. He listened to the wrong people. This is Trump’s Achilles heel, he lacks discernment despite his pragmatism and his ability to make deals. You cannot deal with evil demonic entities who inhabit the very core of our government.
Nothing has been done to eliminate the enemies of freedom who reside in those alleged halls of justice. Sessions is gone, but I don’t see Rosenstein being eliminated, I don’t see Huber’s report coming forth to expunge the filth in our FBI, I don’t see the Office of the Investigator General coming forth with a new report and all of this should have been done long ago. Time is fleeting and two years of Democrats as the House majority will be another nightmare from hell.
Trump should trust no one.
