The Deep State fights back.
There is no way to sugarcoat it – especially after the lawless invasion of the attorney-client privilege by fancy-suited thugs, if President Donald Trump sits down and talks to Robert Mueller and his pack of Democrat donor corruptocrats, he’s an idiot.
Understatement of the year, that is. But I’m not sure now that he ever did have any real intention of doing it.
Instead, he needs to take his case to the people – because a blind man can see that he’s being framed.
If Trump talks to Mueller, Mueller will be laughing at him, but on the inside. On the outside, he’ll keep up that beaten beagle visage of his, roaring at how he outsmarted the man who outsmarted all the Smartest People in the World and who therefore assumes he can somehow “win” his interview.
But Trump can’t win. The fix is in. Raiding Michael Cohen’s office was the icing on an all-icing cake. This is not justice. This is an attempt to claw back power for the disenfranchised elite no matter what it takes, and no one – not the president, not me, and not you, should pretend these hacks deserve any deference or respect.
What they deserve, from each and every real American, is unwavering, implacable, ruthless enmity. They are brazenly and audaciously attempting a coup, now right out in broad daylight. They tried to subvert the American people’s right to a say in their own governance via free and fair election, by clandestinely rigging a presidential election. Having failed, they spent a year undermining and defying the winner, and now seek to overthrow the legitimate President by any means they can contrive. They are traitors not one whit less than Benedict Arnold, Alger Hiss, Aldrich Ames, and Robert Hanssen were. They deserve to be treated as the treasonous scum they are.
Mueller’s only goal in this interview is to trick Trump into some innocuous inconsistency that he and his thugs can spin into perjury. But even if Trump doesn’t say anything incriminating, there is absolutely zero evidence to support the naive belief that these political hatchet men won’t just invent something. What about their behavior in this pseudo-legal abomination has provided you any evidence supporting the naïve notion that these people would hesitate to frame their quarry?
Of course they wouldn’t. They’ll stick at absolutely nothing. They’re in way too deep to do anything less. They can’t afford to back down now, and they wouldn’t even if they could. They intend and fully expect to undo the American uprising against their Superstate’s absolute authority, the belated rejection by real Americans of tyranny, corruption, and misrule. They have most of the federal Leviathan in their corner, along with the media establishment, academia, much of the corporate world, the entertainment industry, and the social-media giants. They have the Republican establishment as silent partners. Or, y’know, not so silent.
Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said it would be “inappropriate” for Trump to dismiss either Mueller or Rosenstein. “I think it would be a massive mistake for the president to do anything to interfere with this investigation,” said Corker, adding, “he knows most every Republican senator feels that way.”
And Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also said Tuesday that he didn’t think Trump was likely to dismiss either man because he knew “it would be the beginning of the end of his presidency.”
Graham is a co-sponsor of one of two bipartisan Senate bills introduced last August that would seek to protect Mueller’s position. The measure he proposed with Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., would ensure that any action to remove a special counsel would have to be reviewed by a panel of federal judges. A similar bill proposed by Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Chris Coons, D-Del., would allow the special counsel to challenge his or her removal in court before a three-judge panel.
I saw a few of these Deep State pustules on the morning news shows piously demanding that Mueller be allowed to “do his job,” Graham being the most vehement about it.
Oh yeah? His JOB, whose remit he has outrageously exceeded, was to “investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.” A stormtrooper raid on Cohen’s office in search of Stormy Daniels dirt is very damned far afield from that limited mandate. Miss Graham and his fellow Republican rectal polyps know it full well, the filthy fucking bastards.
And suddenly, I find myself hoping for that resounding GOP ass-thumping this fall. These shitweasels don’t just need their noses smacked accompanied by a good scolding; they need to be leashed, caged, and neutered. Back to Kurt for the closer.
This is not a game. And this is more than about just one man. These kangaroo court shenanigans are designed to use fear of prosecution to permanently lock out of office anyone the elite disapproves of – and to lock in their unchallenged, unquestioned control of the reins of power. The potential consequences are much worse than just impeachment – this kind of attack on the rule of law is at the top of a slippery slope that can end with a nation split apart and even embroiled in civil conflict. Liberals are already fantasizing about winning a new “civil war.”
If this is to be the way we’re governed—if so many of our “fellow citizens” (choke) are willing to accept being so governed, even desirous of it—a nation split apart might turn out to be the best-case scenario.
Kurt has a suggestion or two as to how Trump might turn the tables here and effectively defang Mueller via nonviolent, political means. Maybe he’s right. Myself, I’m beginning to think even a massive convergence of millions of real Americans on DC in angry protest against this abominable show of contempt for democracy, the rule of law, and everything this country is supposed to be and to stand for wouldn’t suffice to stop them. Mueller and his corrupt confreres seem to assume that most Americans are numb or complacent enough to just take their cabal’s criminal affronts lying down, without resistance or response. I can only hope they’re wrong about that, and that their arrogance will soon prove to be their undoing.
