After the coup

Mueller Grand Jury

“Our politics” has been fed poison for many decades, Patrick.  The Progressive-Liberal-Democrat Party movement introduced into America the poison of class warfare and social division along with a constant denigration of America’s Founding principles……the Constitution of limited government and a free market economy, federalism.  Wilson, FDR, LBJ, BHO….all on the same track, central planning from Washington, social engineering, social welfare state.  They have been winning and are not about to see their statism weakened, paused or reversed.  For them anything goes in their ongoing revolution, even coup d’etat.

There is no such thing as an election where a candidate wins and the other gracefully loses.  The democrat party has changed that forever.  The Republicans have grown accustomed to being led around by their noses for so long they have forgotten how to win. President Trump has tried to set an example of how to lead the nation and the world which has been missing for the last eight years.  The deep state and the swamp (which includes lobbyists and the LameStream media) is no longer abiding by the rules of our democracy. The American people outside of NYC and CA are the losers as this corrupt Congress sits back and watches the people’s leader being destroyed.

As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates.

The jurors will be drawn from a pool of citizens in a city Hillary Clinton swept with 91 percent of the vote. Trump got 4 percent.

Whatever indictments Mueller wants, Mueller gets.

Thanks to a media that savages him ceaselessly, Trump is down to 33 percent approval in a Quinnipiac University poll and below 40 percent in most of the rest.

Before Trump departed D.C., the Washington Post ran transcripts of his phone conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.

Even Obama administration veterans were stunned.

So, it is time to ask: If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win. If Trump is brought down, American democracy will take a pasting. It will be seen as a fraud. And the backlash will poison our politics to where only an attack from abroad, like 9/11, will reunite us.

Our media preen and posture as the defenders of democracy, devoted to truth, who provide us round-the-clock protection from tyranny. But half the nation already sees the media as a propaganda arm of a liberal establishment that the people have rejected time and again.

Consider the Post’s publication of the transcripts of Trump’s calls with Mexico’s president and Australia’s prime minister.

When reporter Greg Miller got these transcripts, his editors, knowing they would damage Trump, plastered them on Page 1.

The Post was letting itself be used by a leaker engaged in disloyal and possibly criminal misconduct. Yet the Post agreed to provide confidentiality and to hide the Trump-hater’s identity.

This is what we do, says the Post. People have a right to know if President Trump says one thing at rallies about Mexico paying for the wall and another to the president of Mexico. This is a story.

But there is a far larger story here, of which this Post piece is but an exhibit. It is the story of a concerted campaign, in which the anti-Trump media publish leaks, even criminal leaks, out of the FBI, CIA, NSA and NSC, to bring down a president whom the Beltway media and their deep-state collaborators both despise and wish to destroy.

Did Trump collude with Putin to defeat Clinton, the Beltway media demand to know, even as they daily collude with deep-state criminals to bring down the president of the United States.

And if there is an unfolding silent coup by the regime Americans repudiated in 2016 – to use security leaks and the lethal weapon of a special counsel to overturn the election results – is that not a story worth covering as much as what Trump said to Pena Nieto?

Do the people not have a right know who are the snakes collaborating with the Never-Trump press to bring down their head of state? Is not discovering the identities of deep-state felons a story that investigative reporters should be all over?

If Greg Miller is obligated to protect his source, fine. But why are other journalists not exposing his identity?

The answer suggests itself. This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else’s sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

The Justice Department is now running down the leaks, and the ACLU’s Ben Wizner is apoplectic: “Every American should be concerned about the Trump administration’s threat to step up its efforts against whistleblowers and journalists. A crackdown on leaks is a crackdown on the free press and on democracy.”

That’s one way to put it. Another is that some of these “whistleblowers” are political criminals who reject the verdict of the American electorate in 2016 and are out to overturn it. And the aforementioned “journalists” are their enablers and collaborators.

And if, as Wizner’s asserts, protecting secrets is tantamount to a “crackdown on the free press and democracy,” no wonder the free press and democracy are falling into disrepute all over the world.

By colluding, the mainstream media, deep state, and the special prosecutor’s button men, with a license to roam, may bring down yet another president. So doing, they will validate John Adams’s insight:

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

  • Good article. The movement against Trump is a highly coordinated effort. The press are free to keep up the constant barrage against Trump, and press protects the leakers. You said it: Mueller is setting the stage in an area that was pro Clinton all the way. How can Trump survive such an effort to destroy him? It makes me very angry because I can see what is happening, and it disgusts me.

    Sounds like the towel has been thrown in the ring.

    I always thought that Conservatives are pussies.
    Good, moral, Godly thoughts and ideals – but when it comes to a real fight,
    they turn into cowards.
    Too sad to even think about.

    Libs are so stupid. What will be gained by victory? Too horrible to think about.
    That is when the Good Lord will descend upon this nation with wrath and fury.
    But, I do have to hand the Libs one thing – they know how to put up
    a good fight – Down and Dirty!!

    Unfortunately, they have no idea what they are really fighting for.
