How dare he offend the Swamp and get rid of excess leftwing bureaucratic baggage?
Via Rush Limbaugh
Recent CNN poll shows the enthusiasm for the incumbent Donald Trump is almost unprecedented. And in his own party, his approval numbers are well now past 90%. Everything they have tried has blown up in their faces, and in the midst of all of it, guess what’s happened? The existence of this so-called deep state has now been shown to be true. The existence of this little cabal of elitists that think they run things is no longer now just somebody’s suspicion.
Oh, yeah, I remember that. It was a good point yesterday. It’s one of the things Trump has done. Everybody’s always speculated that there’s some power behind the throne, some secret group that actually runs things in Washington, and they’re there despite who the president is. And these generally have always been things touted by conspiracy theorists, people that have been labeled kooks in the past.
Donald Trump’s exposed it. Whatever you want to call it, the deep state, the elites, the Washington establishment, there’s no question that it exists. And there’s no question that they are ticked off. And there’s no question that maybe the center of it is the national security apparatus, the National Security Council, because within that group is every other group we’re talking about. Director of national intelligence, CIA, military has people in there, State Department, diplomacy. It’s all in the National Security Council or apparatus.
The whistleblower was on the National Security Council. McMaster, who we now know had ties to the whistleblower, he was the national security adviser for Trump. And that seems to be the nexus. One of the things that we have learned that has upset these people — and, folks, I’m not making this up. It is simple as this. Oh. By the way. Something else that we have learned. It may well be Eric “Charcoal” Ciaramella who released the transcript of two phone calls Trump made, president of Mexico, and was it Australia?
Remember early on in the Trump administration he makes these two phone calls, and the transcript of these calls leaks. And it is now thought that the whistleblower, the spy, is the leaker of those two calls. And nothing would surprise me. But what upsets these people is that Trump makes phone calls — like the president of Ukraine — he makes phone calls without the National Security Council bigwigs listening in. And they feel left out. This is not the way it works in Washington. Presidents do not exclude the national security apparatus. Presidents let those people listen in because they’re the ones that really do foreign policy. All presidents understand this.
Well, Trump began to exclude these people shortly after he was inaugurated because everything he was doing was leaking. You know, another rip on Trump, the transcript of the call he made to the Ukrainian president was put on a super-secret server. And the media and the deep state people are trying to say, “See, see Trump’s trying to hide it, Trump’s trying to get away with stuff. He’s trying to break the law, and that’s why he’s putting that stuff away.”
And it was not the reason at all. The transcript of these calls that Trump was making were being kept away from people in his own administration who were leaking. It makes perfect sense, especially after those first two phone calls leaked. And the reason that I know this, we have a story here. And this story is a guy, he’s a financier, he’s a Wall Street guy, his name is Jay Latimer, international businessman, writer, investor.
He has worked in investment banking for several multinational banks — New York, Hong Kong, and Beijing. And he describes a briefly encounter he had with a member of this cabal. He says, “I recently spoke with an old acquaintance, just out of government, who had worked in the Intelligence Community in Washington. The venue was a neighborhood party in a deep-blue area of the U.S., in one of the highest of high-income ZIP codes.”
So elite, wealthy liberal Democrats were the people at this party. “As the lone conservative,” writes Mr. Latimer, “I tend to tread carefully in these discussions. However, I thought she might have a conservative bent,” this woman he was talking to, “as she seemed to share my mistrust of government. When she first started working for the I.C., she told me she was waiting to meet ‘the adult in the room,’ as everyone she interacted with seemed clueless,” the intelligence community.
“After a few years, she eventually realized ‘there was no adult in the room!’ So I was interested in her take on the Trump impeachment process, then just getting under way. When I brought it up, she immediately got excited. ‘It’s worse than you think; it’s worse than anyone knows!’ I wondered what might be worse than what I’ve read. I also wondered which side she felt was acting worse — Trump or the swamp?
“I soon learned she was upset with Trump for supposedly talking to Ukraine about Joe Biden. I asked, quite innocently, wouldn’t you expect him to look into it? After all, Trump is the head of the law enforcement community, and Biden’s son was getting over $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian energy company for a position that he was clearly unqualified to hold. Wasn’t that suspicious? She airily waived off my concerns. ‘Oh, everyone in Washington does that kind of thing.’”
And, by the way, she’s right. Have you seen Hunter Biden’s interviews about this? He doesn’t think he did anything wrong at all. This is the way Washington works. The children of high Washington officials are set up in the way Joe Biden set up Hunter Biden. The way the Clintons have set up Chelsea. It’s just the way of the world, like all parents try to set their kids up or do as much for them as they can.
In Washington the problem is that they don’t use their own money to do it. They use defense contractor money, they use foreign donations, they do all kinds of things, like in Ukraine, Burisma, ChiCom, it was other countries’ money that Biden used to set his kid up. But this woman that Latimer’s talking to, “That doesn’t bother me. Everybody does that in Washington.”
No. What really made her mad “was that Trump had changed the procedures, placing his calls to other heads of state under high classification status, so they could not be seen by others in government. She considered this an outrageous breach of protocol. How could Trump do such a thing?”
So it’s exactly what I suspected. Trump, after his phone calls were leaked, and they were not the only things that were leaked. Trump started making these phone calls and doing other operations essentially behind closed doors without letting these people in. And they are normally part of the process. They are the foreign policy establishment. When a president calls a foreign leader, they have to be on the call. They have to know what’s going on. They have to provide input. They are involved.
And Trump has been acing them out because he doesn’t trust them. And they are livid! And this is what literally is behind the whistleblower and all these other things getting this impeachment process going. These are just people who think they run that town, and Trump has run an end run around them and is leaving them out, and they are livid. They are ticked off.
They have been rendered irrelevant by Donald Trump. And that’s the biggest insult you could do to these people. Because in their minds they are Washington, they are government, they are foreign policy. And Trump is excluding them. It’s like Trump has taken away their reason to live. He’s taken away their access to power and bragging rights and whatever else they get their jollies doing by being involved in these things.
“So I pointed out” — this Mr. Latimer continuing — “I pointed out that he had a good reason; Trump was the victim of two major leaks in his first month, where the full texts of his calls were given to the press. Wasn’t that also outrageous and unprecedented? And given the strong possibility of further leaks, wouldn’t classifying his calls be the prudent thing to do? At this point, her eyes flashed in anger. ‘He can’t just change things like that! He’s not a king!’”
Meaning he can’t just arbitrarily decide to exclude us. Now, who are these people? Well, the first thing to know about ’em is that none of them are elected. There’s not a single one of them in this cabal that ever answers to or is accountable to the American people. And in a representative republic, that is a nonstarter. But it’s been this way probably for decades. I will bet you it’s been this way since the post-World War II era.
……When, of course, he has the total right to exclude anybody he wants on these phone calls. He has the total right to send Rudy Giuliani as an ambassador or as an agent of some kind to Ukraine if he wants to because he is in charge of American foreign policy. These people do not think that’s the case. They literally believe – and I’m not exaggerating — that they are.
So there are many reasons these people hate Trump. But I’m telling you that while some of it may be policy, a lot of it isn’t. A lot of it is just the fact that he’s taken away their reason to live. He’s taken away their identity. He’s taken away their bragging rights. He’s taken away that which gives them self-esteem.
They’re not factors. They are not relevant when it comes to American foreign policy. And they think they run it. And so Trump’s gotta go. Trump’s gotta go, and he’s gotta be replaced by somebody who knows the way things are done. An average Republican or Democrat who is gonna let these people run the show because presidents come and go and these people are constant.
Well, folks, this is exactly what we elected Donald Trump to do. So the bottom line is, they’re trying to kick Donald Trump out of office for doing exactly what you elected him to do. It’s no more complicated than that. All the rest of this is just blather. All the rest of it is just a bunch of garbage thrown up against the wall hoping a lot of it sticks so that you’ll be confused. It’s no more complicated than Donald Trump is actually doing what you elected him to do, and official Washington is intolerant of it.
Biden used his position as vice president and his influence over the State Department to strong-arm the Ukrainian government into firing the prosecutor who investigated the graft and kickbacks involving the company Biden’s son was associated with.
Since he’s part of the anti-Trump Deep State cabal, it’s okay.
The leftwing Deep State really didn’t believe Trump would win the election. As an ‘insurance policy‘ during the campaign, the FBI, James Comey, the Hillary campaign, a reprobate former MI6 agent, and the Obama regime all had a hand in producing and paying for a lurid, fabricated dossier which was then used to secure a warrant from the FISA court under fraudulent claims, to spy on the Trump campaign.
Obama weaponized government agencies. to subvert and disrupt the election process.
Former acting CIA Director John McLaughlin actually admits there’s a Deep State and praises it. He essentially outed himself as a domestic enemy.
It’s simply revenge for the 2016 election.:
The Democrats created an impeachment process where the individual leading the process was involved in creating it with a CIA spy who leaked information from a Presidential call. The same CIA spy was kicked out of the White House in 2017 for leaking.
The spy met with Adam Schiff and his team before filing his complaint under the Whistleblower statute although this didn’t meet the standards for such a complaint. Whistleblower complaints are only legitimate in the Intel Community if related to a member of the Intel community. The President was the subject of the complaint and he is not a member of the Intel community.
The whistleblower form in the Intel community was updated to allow for second hand information. This was not allowed before this complaint.
Schiff and his team flew to Ukraine before the complaint and met with some of the individuals who testified in Schiff’s court held in the basement of the US capital. The Republicans are not allowed to call in witnesses. The witnesses were coached by Schiff. The Republicans’ questions are constantly interrupted by the likes of ‘President’ Swalwell, a failed Democrat candidate for President, and other Democrats.
The President and his team were not allowed to interview the witnesses. The witnesses are basing their testimonies in some cases on 4th hand information.
Schiff is in charge of the impeachment hearings set up based on the CIA spy’s complaint. Schiff is the same individual who created the incident that the impeachment is based on. All rules and guidelines are created by him alone. He decides who interviews and when and what they are allowed to say. He tells witnesses whether they are allowed to answer questions or not from the Republicans on the Committee.
The number of unconstitutional actions taken by Schiff is too numerous to count. Nowhere in our constitution does it provide for an accuser to be a witness, a prosecutor, the judge, the jury and the ruler over who is heard and what is said in a trial! And to think they are doing this not in a traffic court, but to remove the President of the United States from office.
……The US has a treaty with the Ukraine that allows for the US and Ukraine to assist each other with criminal investigations. Based on a Mutual Legal Assistant Treaty with Ukraine, the President had every right and even a duty to dig into criminal activities in Ukraine that involve Americans.
The President of the Ukraine asked on the call whether he should look into the Bidens’ actions in the Ukraine. A video where former Vice President Biden bragged about having a Ukrainian prosecutor kicked off a case where he was investigating his son, Hunter Biden, was shared all over the Internet. The judge was removed in a quid pro quo arrangement. The Ukrainians removed the prosecutor and then they received $1 billion from the US under Obama.
Biden’s son Hunter, was placed on the Board of Burisma Holdings in the Ukraine and he and Devon Archer, who’s connected to former Secretary of State, John Kerry, who was also on the Burisma Board, made at least $50,000 a month each in spite of knowing nothing about Burisma’s business.
Based on this Schiff and company believed they could impeach President Trump for a quid-pro-quo – like what Biden did – I’ll give you money if you remove the prosecutor in the Ukraine who is investigating my son and the company he is a Board member of, Burisma Holdings. But this is not what President Trump did. Joe Biden is guilty of quid-pro-quo.
Like the other attempts for the last three years, it will fail.
