Lawyer up, and take the crazy serious

Robert Mueller is attempting presidenticide in a manner not seen since the Iran-contra investigation, in which Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North took one for the team and saved the Republic. The Plame investigation was lame in that the vice president was the target, and it was a nothingburger without the bun.

If it is any comfort, Big Government would go after Trump had he lost. They want him dead, his $10 billion empire destroyed, and his wives and children sold into slavery.



That is not hyperbole. That is history. Of course, they would have to settle for something short of enslaving Trump's family as we no longer do that. They would do so symbolically.

Make no mistake, win or lose, we would be going through this.

Big Government wanted Trump destroyed for merely opposing them. Remember that guy who stood in front of the tank in Tienanmen Square on June 4, 1989?

Did anyone ever seen that guy again?

That is how government works. Only government-sanctioned opposition is allowed.

McCain, Romney, and even Palin posed no threat to them. The first two played the game and if elected would have been acceptably non-threatening. They were satisfied to merely humiliate Palin and her family, and in fact, made her a millionaire. She's the spayed cat.

But Trump rocked Washington to its core. The empire strikes back.

Mueller is a worthy opponent for President Trump.

They like Mueller in Washington. He's a well-respected man about town. On his watch came IRS, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi. He did nothing. Good boy.

Mueller has studied his prey -- read his books -- and thinks he has the Achilles heel: his children. That would be my call.

Thus the early jab at Donald Jr.

The Russian lawyer thing is a throwaway to see how Trump reacts.

Trump was laid back. He let the son handle this.

But the son lacks the father's ability to rope and hogtie the media, which still believes it magically created him by "giving" him all that free airtime in 2015 and the first half of 2016.

The father is letting life teach the son in a controlled setting. No one in America is Father Trump when it comes to the media, able to handle fire from both the New York Times and the National Enquirer. Having his first bankruptcy and his first divorce played out on the front pages of New York provided him with the training necessary to take them all on.

I can read President Trump's move two different ways. One, he is being cautious. The other is he is being foolish by blowing this nonsense off.

Trump needs to take these charges serious no matter how ridiculous they are. Consider the hell Mia Farrow put Woody Allen through. Woody Allen knew her charges of child molestation were untrue and failed to take them serious until it was almost too late.

Mueller is doing what federal prosecutors have done for ages: slowly release information to play the jury pool. It is unseemly. It is an abuse of power by both prosecutors and the press.

But this is the imperfect world we live in.

Take heart. This diversion allows Trump to move his agenda along. The House passed funding for the Wall. While CNN is yammering on and on about a Russian lawyer, it does not have time to talk about a wall. Pity.

But at the end of the day, Trump must be victorious against the special prosecutor. The outcome will determine if he is Nixon or Reagan.

  1. I think they're still afraid of Palin, at least somewhat.

  2. To move his agenda along President Trump is going to need Congressional Republicans to do their jobs, but they have shown great reticence against that and are letting the Democrats push them around. They say hope springs eternal, but I'm not very hopeful regarding that possibility. - Elric

    1. "They are letting the Democrats push them around." 100 percent comedy gold.
      Rs control all three branches and it's a minority that is controlling everything on Capitol Hill?
      The D.C. Rs are just as incompetent as the West Virginia Rs. And trust me, that is bigly bad. Sad.

    2. So do you understand Senate rules? In the Senate under present rules they can "push the R's around." The 60 vote rule on general legislation is one way to block legislation when the controlling party has only a small majority. The only remedy beyond winning at least 60 seats in the Senate is to change the rules for voting where the majority rules, period. The Left cried out about this and Reid did modify the rules on non-SCOTUS court nominations when the Dems were in power and the GOP was using the Senate rules to their benefit. I would now expect that the Dems and media do not want a further nuclear option to get rid of the filibuster's 60 vote rule since they were very upset when the Supreme Court nominee vote was changed to a majority vote for approval; but they certainly approved of Sen. Reid's change to enable them to stack the courts with progressives. Funny that!

    4. So much for Trump being a deal maker. The Rs are too busy fighting themselves. But hey blame it on the Dems anyway. Like I said, the DC Rs are just as dysfunctional as the W.Va. Republicans.

  4. How is Trump moving his agenda along? He hasn't been seen in two days and now he is jetting off to celebrate Bastille Day in France (will he order "Freedom Fries"?).
    Aside from his Executive Orders which are nothing more than reversal of Obama policies and not anything innovative, what major legislation has he had passed by Congress? Healthcare reform-nope; wall being built-nope (Obama built 700 miles of border wall); voter fraud investigation-disaster; tax reform-nope. List goes on.
    Yep, agenda moving right along. Good thing Pence seems reasonable and sane. He will be President soon.

    2. Holy Dipshit, Batman! I guess Anon missed the memo about Neil Gorsuch.

    3. Neil Gorsuch was a SC nomination. Is that really all that innovative? No. But let's suppose that is a "major" legislative victory. That's one. Where are his real legislative items going? Nowhere fast.

    4. Unaware that Trump controls the Executive and the Congress is the Legislative Branch?

      Your confusion of responsibilities makes your analysis inaccurate.

    5. Innovative? Like, what? He picked the right guy and got him through. It was a win. A YUGE win. I read people saying if he seated Gorsuch and did nothing else done they'd consider it a successful first year.

      My fave so far has been his incineration of the Climate Change "treaty." Oh how those Proggies wailed and gashed teeth. My guess is that if he'd had to get congressional approval there would have been enough R chickenshits to vote it down.

      What you need to understand is: We Trumpkins are still pissed about The Swamp, and we'll do our damnedest to primary those RINO and NeverTrumper asses. Consummate Insider Gillespie almost got beat in VA by a guy who proudly supported Mr. T. It was a harbinger.

  5. Good write-up. Everyone should think long and hard about Don's words.

    We held our noses and voted for McCain. We held our noses and voted for Romney. We're watching olympic-level kabuki by the uniparty on every platform that drove us to the polling booth. We created a murder weapon in over 3000 counties 8 months ago to end them. Peacefully.

    We're now dealing with an echo-chambered Deep State now in the red for trillions of dollars. Just pick up one of those quotes from the NRO betas that 3% of 350 million rifled barrels can't take on 1 million LEOs that can't qualify their weapons at 7 yards.

    What these hipsters don't realize is that if they drop a hammer every able bodied American patriot will descend on *.gov, pull them out of their hole, and torch them like an Eastwood Iwo Jima movie. It's their choice.

    The problem is that they were more than willing to destroy America in November '16 for their fun and profit. They might end up learning the Law of Unintended Consequences.

    1. As I have written before, the Left will do something that will cause a cascading event that will stir up we deplorables. Dr. Reynolds, Instapundit, said it better than me, "Just remember, you’re setting the stage for a similar campaign of massive resistance to the next Democrat in the White House. And it may not be limited to the bureaucracy. I mean if this sort of thing is okay, why not refusal to pay taxes, or a Tea Party mob occupying the White House? And that’s just at the top of the slippery slope of “resistance.” At the bottom? Bureaucrats and politicians hanging from lampposts while their families try to evade the mobs. Is this really where you want to go, lefties?"

  6. Donald Jr. doesn't strike me as being especially bright. Ivanka appears to be the one who got the brains among the Trump siblings.

  9. You know? (I don't)......

    The stuff you cite is Old School.

    What Trump has done is introduce New School, that is so new it has not attracted a name that has stuck yet.

    The outcome of straight-up Old School versus New School might be surprising.

    It has been so far, and I hear the Dow is up again.

  10. Of course, perhaps Trump just wants to allow Junior the opportunity to prove that he has the goods when the sh*t starts flying.
