SEX, TAXES, FAKE NEWS AND RUSSIA
Saturday, 16 December:
The Trump presidency is now in the 'all hands on deck' phase.
Ever since the man was elected, the opposition, a collection of progressive activists, 'big government' Republicans, and a Deep State intelligence network wary of an uncontrollable Chief Executive have tried every trick to toss him from power.
The truth was never an issue. Most, if not all the charges against him are either exaggerations, misrepresentations or outright fabrications.
He is not a 'fascist'. Nor is he 'for the rich'. He didn't conspire with Russia, he sought better relations. He isn't a 'sexist homophobe anti Muslim'. All of this is utter nonsense is thought up by the DNC people and their fans in the media.
No, what is coming to light, as has been chronicled here since last February is this:
Trump is a legally elected president who won an election that wasn't close. The 'game' here, so to speak, is not popular vote. This isn't a Democracy. It's a Constitutional Republic with limited suffrage.
That means the vote is sacred, and for the citizens of this country. As the Founders envisioned.
The previous lot were in fealty to the globalist movement, one world government under UN rule with the US being but a vassal state. This is not in dispute.
You may like it, or not. But it is the truth.
What Trump does bring to the table is a pragmatic, America first form of governance that is not ideological in application but it is by design. The Founders didn't envision 'conservative' versus 'progressive' political opposites.
They saw a Federalist/Anti-Federalist issue, perhaps. More centralized as opposed to state's rights thing. The thought of handing power to unelected foreign bureaucrats (think 'Paris Climate Accord') never occured to them.
Trump has turned away from these things. He also brings a businessman's eye to a bloated bureaucracy; the State Department is absolutely bereft over the hiring freeze and layoffs.
Therefore, they are literally, and figuratively, backed into a corner. The tax reform act is on the periphery of passing. You can bet your bottom dollar it will be on his desk for signature by end of next week. ISIS has been decimated.
He has had 12 Circuit Court judges approved. That's a record for the first year of any administration, add Neil Gorsuch to that. The deconstruction of the regulatory state is continuing at a rapid pace.
EPA head Gregg Pruitt has a special investigator rooting out holdover progressive activists that try to block the changes. These people are not playing around.
So, what does the opposition have left?
Easy. The old playbook of one Saul Alinsky. It's called 'Rules for Radicals' and it's dedicated to Satan. Hillary Clinton did her graduate thesis at Wellesley College on it although it's been conveniently 'lost'.
Like a poorly written and evil take on Sun Tzu's 'Art of War', 'Radicals' is a blueprint for communist takeover. Attack the bastions of freedom by playing the guilt card. Good people have a built in guilt complex, and they know this and try to exploit it.
Simply put, their approach is to attack, ridicule, marginalize and then remove.
One of the favorite moves is to use the 'sex' card. The United States is a moral nation, but that has been eroded over the last 40 years or so by a laissieze faire approach to consensual sex and the mainstreaming of pornography.
The net result? You got it.
Now, how do you exploit that to get a political gain you otherwise wouldn't have a prayer of getting? That's simple too.
Take advantage of someone like Roy Moore. It may cost you an Al Franken, but it just may be worth it. Neither Moore, nor Franken, should be out of the scene over this.
One was a hillbilly trolling for a wife in 80's Alabama. The other an ugly troll who used his power to indulge in bad frat boy activities. Neither were a Harvey Weinstein or a Kevin Spacey.
But that doesn't matter. The accusation is enough. The noun 'allegation' is now the most looked up and misused word in the country. Any suggestion, no matter how specious, is now an 'allegation' and must be taken seriously.
So, you can pay some one $750 grand and nullify an election. Pretty good ROI (return on investment) don't you think?
The ultimate goal? Take down the president. Russia ain't gonna do it; the Mueller probe is coming to an end, at least as far as the president goes. In fact, the whole thing is coming back to bite them in the ass.
Which, as Bill Murray might say, is 'nice'.
Seeing it was a trap laid by the previous lot, it was either going to work or get exposed. Well, it isn't working. Therefore the players are getting exposed, and it's kind of ugly. Then when you add their supplicant media to the equation, it just gets worse.
CNN had a real, real bad week. But all of them -the NY Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC and CBS- are in a world of shit now. They are forever known as purveyors of 'fake news' by over half the population.
People aren't as stupid as they think. They may not like Trump much -he doesn't care- but they know when they're being fed a bunch of crap.
The feeble response to the failure of the Russia probe is to march out the women who accused Trump of unwanted sexual advances. Now let's get one thing straight:
There's a big difference between trolls like Al Franken or Blake Farenthold and Donald Trump.
They are ugly bastards who use their politcal power to subjugate others for sexual reasons. Trump is a billionaire reality show star who throws beauty contests. There, women, and very attractive ones, scramble to become stars.
If anyone was 'assaulted' by others it was Mr.Trump. He was, and still is, a prize catch. Ergo Melania. He doesn't have any problems attracting women. This is a fact.
So, this, too will go nowhere. Kirstin Gillibrand (D, NY) will try to make something out of it, but she spent decades covering up for Bill Clinton, who is a real, live rapist.
Not a whole lot of credibility there. Which is just their problem. Progressives are so blind and tone deaf from their arrogance that they can't see this. It's their key weakness,and it does them in every time.
As it will here.
Meanwhile, the Trump adminsitration will pass the tax reform act. And Putin just commended Trump for the 'good things he's done' for the US. Don't forget he criticized the Previous Occupant for 'moving to far to the left'.
That coming from the head of the Russian Federation. Different times, indeed.
It has been a couple of very good weeks for the 45th president. Some of it is his doing. But a lot of it is the implosion of the feckless opposition; so dedicated to a short term fantasy as to lose sight of any long term gains.
The reason is simple: They are terrified he will be a success...

ROY MOORE: WHY IT COUNTS
Monday, 11 December:
First of all, a disclaimer.
This site is not, nor has it ever been, enamored of Judge Roy Moore. This goes back many years, as he showed more of a desire to grandstand and demagogue rather than simply do his job. Both times he was removed from the Alabama Supreme Court it was for showboat activity.
The 10 commandments probably should be in a court room; our system of law is based on the Judeo-Christian concepts inherent within. Gay marriage has always seemed somewhat of a contradiction in terms. Marriage is a millenia old societal device meant to raise children, protect women and civilize men.
Civil unions were, and are, perfectly acceptable. So, there is no fundamental disagreement with the judge on that, and numerous other issues.
No, it's about him.
He has a quality that just rubs raw on one; an in your face old school southern lawman who would gladly throw one out of 'his' county for not getting along with their cultural norms. Not necessarily a judge an out of towner would want to go before.
But he is sort of an institution in his home state, much like 'Sheriff Joe' Arpaio was in Arizona. His absolutism on core moral issues gives comfort to many, and he is well respected there. But he was never going to be welcomed in the US Senate.
The left hates his politics and the GOP mainstream dislikes his lack of East Coast Prep school manners.
Enter Donald Trump.
His presidency, which has exposed a rift in the country that goes to it's roots, is under constant threat from the previous administration and it's allies. Desperate to stop his deconstruction of the regulation state they have crafted over decades, any advantage, no matter how small, is being fought bitterly.
Moore is running to replace the now Attorney General Jeff Sessions. His seat is one of 52 the GOP currently has. It is a very thin majority.
Especially considering the 'never Trump' crowd that exists there. This seat is pretty damn important, no matter how one slices the pie.
That's why one should hold their nose and vote for the judge. If you simply look at his record it's pretty impressive; he was the oldest of five children who attended West Point and then served as Commander of the 188th Military Police Company of the 504th MP Battalion in Vietnam.
After his service he went to University of Alabama law school. He then went to work as a District Attorney, and his record as a judge is a mixed bag ever since. But there is little doubt that he has been a pillar of the community who has, except for his now famous scuffles with the federal judiciary, little to apologize for.
The allegations of sexual impropriety against him are most likely true. But they should be viewed in context. Culturally speaking, the Deep South has had child brides. A young man had to prove himself worthy of supporting a wife.
He would then ask the parents of the girl of his attraction the permission to court. Elvis Presley did this with Patricia Beaulieu, whom he met at 14 while stationed in Germany. They eventually married when she was 21.
That was more about Presley being unavailable due to the movies he made than about any long courtship. Of course, most know about Jerry Lee Lewis, who married his 13 year old second cousin.
Moore was trolling for a wife. In those days, you didn't have the attractive professional girls in their 20's and 30's like you do today. If a girl wasn't married before 21 she was either not interested in guys or over 300 pounds.
He did the same thing a LOT of men his era did. Not creepy predatory like Harvey Weinstein, or the immature frat boy antics of Al Franken. It may not be attractive by today's standards, but Moore didn't rape someone like Bill Clinton did.
He just crossed some lines gentlemen shouldn't.
The media is presenting this all through a contemporary lens. A 32 year old with his background doesn't need to 'rob the cradle'. Women don't marry off at 18 anymore.
This doesn't excuse him. It simply tries to put this sort of conduct in context, and having his vote on the Senate is now important enough that the Previous Occupant and his second banana are in Alabama trying to steal the state using the 'sex' card once again.
If Moore wins, and he should squeak by, he will be immediately met with the ethics committee, and if they vote for censure and/or removal, well so be it
The governor of Alabama will appoint a replacement. The people of Alabama will have spoken, their will represented, and the issues they believe advanced.
If Moore is found to have been sordid in his actions to the point they are a hindrance, he will go. This is how the system works.
So, to the good people of Alabama, vote for Roy Moore if he reflects your values and beliefs, the rest will take care of itself in due time...

SEX, FAKE NEWS AND NEW GAMBITS
Friday, 8 December:
If anyone out there thinks the current political scene is more reminiscent of a distant era where charges, counter charges and insults flew about without restraint you sure can't be faulted for that thought.
Where news was made, revised and remade almost daily with little thought given to what had just been said the previous day. What's even more amazing is that this is happening in spite of all the recorded evidence of what was said.
That's how fast the narrative moves. Like a cheap thriller that carelessly ignores contradictions that might slow down the pace, every day something breaks, or whether it be large or small is launched for all it's worth.
Some of it isn't worth much. Picking on Melania Trump, for one.
That results in some of the most ridiculous displays of what can only be called sheer jealousy by these detractors, mostly females of decidedly less attractive personas.
No, the big bomb is always something aimed at the Oval Office at the faint hope it may be 'the' Moment that Took Trump Down. Due to the competitive nature of the media opposition which is fighting hard to seize audience shares from each other, they have gotten sloppy.
Stupid, desperate sloppy.
Last week ABC and Brian Ross claimed Michael Flynn had said candidate Donald Trump had told him to contact Russian officials. It turned out it was President-elect Trump and it wasn't about sanctions but about taking on ISIS.
It was responsible considerations from an incoming cabinet. But it was 'mis-reported' and taken as proof of violating the Logan Act. The progressive left cheered loudly thinking Trump was finally going to be impeached.
Instead, this false report caused a 350 point collapse in the Dow, and people who got caught 'short' got hurt. ABC isssued a weak apology and suspended Ross for a month without pay. It was a slap on the wrist.
Then, Reuters and Bloomberg ran with a story about Trump's bank records with Deutsche Bank being subpoenaed by the Mueller crew. This is even though the bank said their internal audit showed no financial connections with Russia.
Once again, the 'gotcha' crowd went nuts. This proved that Mueller was expanding his probe to include financial records; heretofore considered off limits. Then the other shoe dropped.
The real story came out that it was 'peoples or entities close to Trump'. Big difference.
Then Friday came along. CNN, ever the reliable source of specious anti Trump news reports, claimed that a secret source sent e-mails to campaign officials and even Trump himself that purported to leak unreleased Wikileaks documents with Clinton inside info on it.
The Big Deal?
It was dated 4 September, 2016 which would indicate that someone with connections to Wiki was collaborating with the campaign. CNN was breathless about all this.
They went with wall to wall 'is this a crime' or 'is this political destruction' all day. Only problem is that partners in crime the Washington Post had found an error in the reportage.
Turns out the e-mail wasn't dated the 4th. It was dated the '14th', or ten days later. By then, the Wiki docs were all public domain, and this was simply a 'heads up'.
Bad week for Fake News, eh? Then there's the people surrounding Bob Mueller being removed for 'anti-Trump bias' and the Peter Strzok affair. It's a particularly ugly bit of business.
Unless it is a reverse sting, then the 5th columnists in the upper echelons of the agency are being exposed and removed. If you'll notice, Mueller is drawing more blood from the swamp than he is from Trump.
Mike Flynn's indictment may have been the bait. The more this chugs along the more this all fits.
So far Strzok, then Andrew Weismann, Jeannie Rhees and several others have all been 're-assigned'. Some say this is because of the GOP house demanding answers from the Agency.
Then again it might all be part of an overall plan. It's the 'coincidence' thing, you know.
Roy Moore. Al Franken and the new gambit also came along. Knowing now that the Russia/collusion affair, always a fraud that will not produce fruit they needed another game plan.
Seeing they're progressives, they will always go back to what they know, the thin tome known as the Alinsky 'Rules for Radicals', which is their bible. In it the first order of affairs is to attack and brand your opponents.
The new brand is actually a tired old one, but that is all they have. Sexism.
Every male is a potential predatory pig. Seeing this has been the record of Homo Sapiens for 20,000 years or so, it's not exactly a shock to most.
Now, how to politicize it? For decades the progressives could drive self concious Republicans out of office for having a relatively mundane extramarital affair when someone like Barney Frank could have a homosexual prostitution ring run out of his house and not only survive but be re-elected as well.
That dog doesn't hunt any more. Steve Bannon is seeing to that, as first the predatory Hollywood types are outed, and now Democrats like Al Franken. His so-called 'resignation' speech, which was every bit as whiny and pathetic as one might expect, did show one thing:
The new gambit. Attack key politicians with allegations of sexual impropriety, get them to step down and then try to steal the seat. It is, without doubt, their next move.
Right now it's about defeating Roy Moore, which unless fraud of epic proportions is exercised, won't happen. They will demand he not be seated if he wins.
They will have some GOP 'lite' types with them on this. What will most likely happen is he will go before an ethics committee almost immediately, and if he faces expulsion -he just might- then the governor will ask for his resignation and replace him with another GOP figure, saving the seat.
It's what Minnesota will do with Franken when he leaves, which by the way will be a very good day. He isn't a sexual predator, really. He's a perfectly execrable human being, vain, petty, and miserable to all he meets.
That he meets his political demise by the hand of his own party is an amazing display of Karma.
It's been quite a week.
The next one might even be more interesting...

LOGAN ACT, LAST GASPS AND FAKE NEWS
Monday, 4 December:
The continuing circus act that is the Trump presidency opened a new ring last week.
Timed conveniently to knock the Trump tax cuts off the front page, the indictment of Michael Flynn was announced by the FBI. It was followed almost immediately by a major gaffe -which very well could have been intentional- by a major network.
As this site has pointed out more than once, you couldn't make this stuff up even with a bevy of screenwriters and a few gallons of alcoholic beverages.
The Flynn indictment was long expected. The opposition is making much of it, but as some experts have shown, you wouldn't plea deal to a lesser offense to flip a witness; it isn't DoJ policy. It is likely that this is all they have on the general.
That, and a threat to prosecute his son. He has been wiped out financially by the investigation so far, and according to sources close to him is 'broken emotionally'. Even the charges against him are in some dispute. The FBI found he hadn't lied, but just didn't recall correctly when he was questioned.
But the Mueller team thought different, and quite frankly returning an indictment in a grand jury is a lot easier than you think. Scooter Libby went to jail because of the last Mueller prosecutorial hunt (Valerie Plame incident) and was almost certainly innocent.
But when you 'misremember' with the FBI, or somehow cross yourself, you end up in big trouble. Martha Stewart will tell you that.
Then there was the amazing incident on Friday where ABC news reporter Brian Ross broke the story that then candidate Trump had ordered Flynn to talk about lifting sanctions against Russia. This caused the progressive left to jump with joy.
Like in 'Behar', who couldn't resist the impulse to scream with joy and assert that the President was 'going to jail'. The only problem with it was it was false. Not only false, but a diametric opposite of the truth.
What DID happen is that PRESIDENT ELECT Trump ordered than National Security Advisor Flynn to reach out to Russia to discuss how to take on ISIS. Pretty big difference. In the pantheon of 'fake news' this one took the cake.
ABC issued a 'clarification'.
Now, a clarification is when you tell the waiter you want home fries rather than a baked potato. This needed a 'retraction', and it didn't come. Instead, the network tried to have it both ways, saying it wasn't 'vetted properly' (ya think?) and then threw Ross under the bus.
He was suspended for four weeks without pay. In reality his career is over, as no one will take any reportage seriously from him ever again. His irresponsible actions caused a 300 point nosedive in the stock market.
ABC left the Ross post on their site for TWELVE HOURS. Make no mistake, they are also major players in this scheme, and it was as rotten as it seems. One more time: 'Coincidences are for civilians'.
Repeat when necessary.
Now, let's look at the Logan Act. This is the trap that the opposition laid for the incoming administration. First passed in 1799, and of dubious constitutionality, it posits that no civilian can interfere with the foreign policy of the current president.
It has been charged several times, but no convictions have ever arrived as result. Some legal experts think it applies here, but they are almost certainly opposition types indulging in serious wishful thinking.
The actions Flynn took were in December of 2016. Trump was already elected, and was in transition. Any entreaties with foreign powers are not only legal, but routine. The Previous Occupant sent emissaries to Russia during their transition period in 2008.
No, this is not going to be prosecution because of violation of the Logan Act. What it is is an effort to trap Trump in an obstruction of justice scheme. By firing James Comey they hope to tie that to his desire to stop the investigation into Flynn.
They know he has the legal right to fire Comey, or anyone else for that matter.
But this could set the stage for articles of impeachment, which is a political act, NOT a criminal prosecution. Very cute, indeed.
This is what their Hail Mary pass looks like. But there is big trouble with all this. The FBI, and other investigative agencies including CIA, are involved in this setup. The Mueller team has the evidence on the complicity of the Clinton state department and others.
They know what really happened. Therefore, this possibility exists:
This could be a reverse sting of massive proportions. Trump interviewed Mueller before he hired Chris Wray, and then the assistant AG Rod Rosenstein selected him as special prosecutor. Trump has shown no interest in firing Mueller, either.
He is a former Marine platoon leader decorated for valor. So, too are John Kelly, Trump's chief of staff, and John Mattis, head of the Department of Defense. Do not discount this. Marines take their oath to the constitution seriously.
And Trump was the duly elected President. The people had spoken.
There is some serious backchatter out there that indicates this may very well be the case. The charges against Trump are almost certainly based on lies, and the opposition does not represent the people but international/globalist interests.
Meanwhile, Trump is busy rolling back the agenda of the Previous Occupant; today he announced the return of millions of acres back to Utah residents that was seized in the final days of their term using the antiquities act.
The president is living up to his campaign pledges and is returning power to the citizens. The tax reform act reverses the plunge to government economic control; that's why the opposition is SO against it.
Their days are numbered. Unless, of course, they can reverse the political trends, gain control of congress and remove the 45th president. They think there is new openings on that front. But there is serious evidence that it is THEY who are in trouble.
As it should be...
