What Does a Coup Look Like?

Why the Media has it wrong.

 

I had to write this follow-up to what I wrote in February in my post  “Who Is Carter Page”.   I have no doubt that almost everybody that read that research thought I was crazy claiming a coup was going on and treason was being committed. Still, today, few pundits have analyzed the true nature of what is and has been going on. I have been studying politics and government for a long time.

I like to think I have a special insight as to how it all works. It hasn’t always been like this but the Intelligence Community (IC) has gained huge power due to its use of technology and laws designed to provide more power, such as the Patriot Act and the FISA Court. But anybody that has a brain knows that great power can be misused and often is. You see, there is no benevolence in Washington….only arrogance! Let me be clear, here. This arrogance is not necessarily a corrupt use of that power. It is a self-aggrandizing activity that makes them think that they have all the answers and are charged with keeping America the most powerful country in the world. It has led to a certain status quo and policies that serve that status quo. Any disruption in that status quo is viewed as a threat to our stature in the world and their supremacy as guardians of that supremacy. That said, there is an awful lot of corruption connected to the Intelligence community which provides the tools, policies and money needed to guard their secrets and carry out their clandestine operations.

spy vs spy 2

Now, I want to get to the meat of it. Since I wrote that article in February, I must have read 200 articles and stories explaining the Mueller investigation and how it is being conducted. Lately, we have been reading about a “spy” in the campaign. Pundit after pundit, continuing to miss exactly what was, and is being done. Let me be very specific about what I already know:

In March of 2016, Trump had won the Florida primary and looked like he was on his way to the nomination. The DNC and even many NeverTrump republicans were, by now, setting their sights on Trump to make certain Hillary would win. But something went wrong. I have documented throughout my writings that the Clintons, their foundation and the Intelligence Community are all integrally connected. The Foundation is used to bring in foreign money that can be used by the CIA for “off the books” operations. This relationship was now turned against Trump. In that same month a man named

stefan halper
Stefan Halper

Stefan Halper entered the campaign….not as an operative….but as part of a plan to ensure Trump’s failure, just in case Hillary couldn’t do it herself. During the spring and early summer of 2016, Halper had several meetings with Carter Page and several other Trump campaign officials. The media have been reporting that Halper was trying to hook up with the campaign, that he was assigned to investigate Russian collusion. But let’s be clear, this is NOT what he was doing, rather he was implementing a plan to CREATE evidence of Russian collusion between Russians and Trump. I must make this point perfectly clear…..Halper’s assignment was not to disrupt a campaign, it was actually to create evidence of a crime. Let me restate that in another way, because it’s ultimately the essence between an investigation and treason: We are being told by the Intelligence Community that they believed that Russia had infiltrated the Trump campaign and were trying to help Trump win the presidency, even though there was no evidence at the time or since, that this was occurring. So let’s take a look at just who this Stefan Halper is. He has a long career, going back to the Nixon White House. He served as assistant chief of staff for the Chiefs of staff, Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney, but more important to this story was his involvement in a CIA operation to provide information to the Carter Administration on the Reagan campaign. Let’s understand this so-called “debategate”, as it was dubbed. By all outward appearances he was a republican operative….running an undercover operation against Reagan, for the democrats. Sound familiar? Looking at Halper’s long history and background in government, one cannot miss the connections he has to the Intelligence Community. Before I move on, allow me to ask some obvious questions being asked by conservative media. Why didn’t the IC just inform the Trump campaign that they suspected Russian involvement? We were also told that Russia was responsible for the Hillary and Podesta e-mail hacks and exposure. Why didn’t they investigate the Hillary campaign? And why did it all start as Trump became the nominee? Remember these questions, because the answers will be the defining element of why this wasn’t an investigation into Russian collusion, but an operation to connect Trump to the Russians and turn Americans against him.

 

 

Let’s turn to Carter Page.

Carter Page
Carter Page

 

Every pundit and writer in the media has assumed Carter Page was an innocent campaign operative, being surveilled and investigated as a Russian operative. Every time I hear it, I cringe. Page was not a target, he was working with and for Halper as an operative to create the evidence required to connect the campaign to the Russians. Only the simple-minded and the uninformed can see Page as anything but an intelligence operative. His background couldn’t be more clear……A graduate of Georgetown University in national security studies…..(Georgetown is where they train spooks) Served in the Navy, his last year and half, in Naval intelligence. As if that isn’t enough…he goes from the Navy to an investment banking job in Moscow. Here he meets a lot of Russians, and immediately voices his support of Russia and the Putin regime. He is very outspoken in his views on American foreign policy toward Russia. Wilkipedia even goes so far to say he was “recruited” by Russian spies. However court documents actually show Page was working for the FBI at the time (2013) to catch those spies. Read my piece, linked above, for more information on Carter Page’s background.

 

In research, timing and timelines are extremely important in understanding the big picture. Page joins the campaign, not before meeting with Halper but after. When you review and analyze Page’s actions while in the campaign, it really looks like he is a Russian operative. It is so transparent, that anyone could see that Page had obvious connections to the Russians and warranted “surveillance and investigation”. Page’s activities start in July, shortly after meeting with Halper. A question I asked in “Who Is Carter Page” was who put Page on the list of possible advisors? I now think I have the answer. It seems that even before Halper got involved another deep state veteran was injected into the Trump campaign.

richard burt
Richard Burt

Richard Burt, a former ambassador to Germany and the chief negotiator for George Bush Sr. during the START treaty negotiations. (Don’t forget Bush Sr. was CIA chief before he was president.) He latched on to the campaign as a foreign policy advisor to Jeff Sessions, and again, had connections inside Russia, in particular, Burt sat on an advisory council to Alfa Bank, Russia’s state owned financial institution. Burt, likely brought Page on board. This is an excerpt from a Politico story:

 

There were whispers all over Washington that, despite Hicks’s denial, Page was not only still part of the Trump campaign, but its conduit for Russian influence. Was he? One way to answer the question was to figure out how he even got on that list to begin with. One source suggested to me that Richard Burt, former U.S. ambassador to Germany, START treaty negotiator, and longtime lobbyist for Alfa Bank, was the nexus. It was Burt who helped draft Trump’s foreign policy speech in April, and had been advising the Trump campaign, via Senator Jeff Sessions, on foreign policy.

One other tidbit you can glean from that excerpt is Trump’s foreign policy speech he gave in April of 2016. In that speech he said this:

We should seek common ground based on shared interests. Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism. I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia – from a position of strength – is possible. Common sense says this cycle of hostility must end. Some say the Russians won’t be reasonable. I intend to find out. If we can’t make a good deal for America, then we will quickly walk from the table.”

Couple this with the off-handed joke he made at the debate with Hillary about her e-mails, and you can see that Trump himself laid the groundwork for what would be the coming onslaught of Russia, Russia, Russia from the left. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2016/jul/27/donald-trump-russia-dnc-email-hack-video

Before I move on to the others, I must make sure you are seeing the picture I am painting: Trump is running for president. He begins to get traction, and is winning. Of all the candidates that are running, Trump is the only one that must not win. As he takes the lead, a plan is hatched by the deep state, status quo, globalists in the government to end Trump’s campaign. They recruit several operatives to plant the evidence to ruin Trump. These operatives are inserted into the campaign. First Burt, then Halper, then Page. All serve a specific purpose…..Burt, to recruit more operatives. Halper, to initiate the sowing of threads of collusion with Russia, and Page to actually create evidence by his overt actions.

 

Now…….I have to, again, ask you a question. Do you believe that these operatives, with well documented histories and credentials of being connected to the Intelligence community and the deep state, were actually government spies, investigating Russian collusion by the Trump campaign, or actually creating evidence to make the case that Trump was colluding with the Russians? But before you answer, let’s move on to the “others”.

When Halper began to try to “help” the Trump campaign, he contacted a campaign science advisor…..Sam Clovis. He asked in an e-mail if they could meet. They did a few days later. In that meeting, Halper never mentions anything about Russia, only China and his research of that country….being a “professor”. He does, however, mention casually that he met with Carter Page. Clovis wrote:

sam clovis
Sam Clovis

“This is just my speculation — I have no knowledge,” Clovis told me. “I think [Halper] was using his meeting with me to give him bona fides to talk to George Papadopoulos. He used Carter Page to get to me and he used me to get to George. George was the target. I think George was the target all along.”

 

 

What you need to see from these circumstances and accounts is that Page and Papadopolous were very different players in the story. While Papadopolous had no knowledge of who Halper was, Page seemed to know a lot about Halper and recommended him in a tweet:

Page has tweeted a line from an email he says he sent to the campaign on July 16, 2016, regarding Halper. Halper — Page referred to him as the professor — “offered a range of possibilities regarding how he and the University might be able to help,” You can read more about this here: Trump campaign vet: Informant used me to get to Papadopoulos

 

Then there is the widely spread story of George Papadopolous. On two occasions, once with Halper and once with a man named Josef Mifsud, Papadopolous was asked if he knew of the existence of the 30K Clinton deleted e-mails, and could the campaign use them? Mifsud, another “professor” reportedly working for British intelligence. He also asked Papadopolous if he knew of the Russian hacked Hillary deleted e-mails. Now, any normal liberal would say that this was normal investigative procedures….but was it? Remember timing! Shortly after these meetings, Papadopolous was introduced to Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat. At a bar, Papadopolous revealed to Downer that he had heard that the Russians had possession of the Hillary e-mails. The FBI has stated publically that this revelation by Papadopolous was what prompted the investigation. If that were the case, why did these deep state operatives plant this seed? If they already knew the Russians had been interfering in the election and the Trump campaign, why is it the FBI says this revelation by Papadopolous was what prompted the investigation? Why were they involved at all, before this revelation? You see, this wasn’t an investigation, this was a set-up of Papadopolous to create the appearance of a needed investigation to eventually spy on the campaign. While all this was going on, Page was creating a trail of crumbs, leading to a connection between the campaign and the Russians. That trail of crumbs was used by Steele, another “former” British spy and Russian expert, to create the infamous Trump Dossier, which surfaces for the first time in August of 2016, a month after Page’s trip to Moscow. I wrote about Pages’s moves in July in my post “Who is Carter Page-Update”: 

Shortly after accepting the position, he needs to go to Russia to give a speech, a commencement speech at a school of economics, in July. This is step 1. Going to Russia in the middle of a presidential campaign.

Step 2, is the lengths he went to, to get permission from the campaign to go, which, do to his lack of importance, wouldn’t need permission. He first asks J.D. Gordon, a retired Naval officer heading up foreign policy for the campaign. Gordon tells him it would be a bad idea. He then e-mails Corey Lewandowski and Hope Hicks, the number one and two people at the campaign. Neither person knows who he is. Hicks never responds, Lewandowski says he can do what he wants, but not to represent the campaign. What you need to see, is the trail he is creating….a trail to Russia. He has to link the trip with formal permission.

 The content of the speech is step 3. Remember, this is a commencement speech. But the speech is very critical of past US foreign policy, implying that Trump would change it. It focuses on his hope that a closer relationship between the two nations might be possible with Trump in the White House. From the speech: “Washington and other Western capitals have impeded potential progress through their often hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption, and regime change,” Page also suggested the United States should ease economic sanctions imposed on Russia following its 2014 incursion into Ukraine and Crimea. Sanction removal would be a common thread in the charges by critics of Russian collusion by Trump. The point here is that he is in Moscow speaking with authority about foreign policy while being on the Trump campaign, but yet he has no authority or authorization to do so. How does that look?

Next…step 4….He is interviewed by the Russian news agency Novosti, where he will not answer what his plans are in Moscow and would only say that he will “meet with several business leaders and academics, before he leaves on Tuesday”. Implying importance, yet being seemingly secretive. But later interviews with Russian officials, they responded that they did not know Mr. Page and were unaware of any meetings that took place. So the impression was left that Page met with “high ranking” Russian officials and it was reported that way.

 And finally, step 5…upon his return he sends an e-mail to the campaign: “I’ll send you guys a readout soon regarding some incredible insights and outreach I received from a few Russian legislators and senior members of the presidential administration here,” As if he has some vital information from people in Russia. But when interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, he said it came from the TV he watched while in Moscow. A clearly ridiculous answer all to make it look like he is covering up something. All the things I have outlined here are found in the Trump dossier, orchestrated to create proof that a tie between Trump and the Russians existed. The way to prove it is to find out if he was working for the FBI as he did in 2013.

 Moscow-Russia

 

One last thing to see here: The news media, even FOX, is telling us that these people were not spying on Trump or his campaign, but on Russia. The IC was investigating Russian influence on the election. What was the predicate for believing that? What prompted that investigation? Didn’t the Russians hack the DNC servers, the Podesta e-mails, and the Hillary private server? Why wouldn’t they be looking for Russian influence there? It just doesn’t add up. The only thing that makes sense is that this was a concerted effort to tie Trump to the Russians, spy on his campaign, conduct electronic surveillance, and plant evidence to have him removed from office. The key to this whole story is Carter Page. He is a spook living in plain sight. If someone can ascertain if Page works for the IC…then we have the answer to all the questions. But I’m afraid they don’t want us to have the answers.

To quote from the movie “Patriot Games”: The president is caught by loyal patriotic national security analyst, Jack Ryan, conducting illegal military operations in Columbia where a dozen US Marines are killed by a drug cartel. When Ryan confronts him…..he says: “Jack, the last thing the country needs is another scandal that goes all the way to the top. Oh…it will come out….a few will take the fall, but that’s where it will stop. A few slaps on the wrists. I’ll do the Potomac Two Step and that will be the end of it.”   Jack promptly says: “Mr. President….I don’t dance” Unfortunately, we don’t have anybody close to Jack Ryan in the government. So what this fictional president said, will be reality. Finally, if the dems win the House in 2018, this will all end quietly. Just one more reason why you must vote for the republican in November. This is the only way the pressure can be maintained on this corrupt and valueless Intelligence Community. If something doesn’t change, this over reach and abuse of power will only continue and get worse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Republicans are in a tough spot in 2018

Why republicans must vote for candidates they don’t like in 2018

campaign finance 3

Republicans are in a tough spot in 2018 I have been studying politics for 40 years. I write this 10 days before the 2018 mid-term Ohio primary. There was a time when I was naïve enough to believe there was a difference between democrats and republicans…that the R and the D stood for very different ideologies. I no longer believe that. Now, there are millions out there that will say there is still a big difference, but I’m here to explain why they are wrong.

 

Yes, democrats and republicans display very different viewpoints on all the important issues. But that’s a role they are playing. Just like a movie script, they each have their parts to play. As in any movie, there is a plot…..a theme through the movie that culminates in a climax at the end. In American politics, the plot is complicated and convoluted. It has twists and turns and sub-plots, but the climax is the globalization of commerce. The entire script surrounds this overarching goal to get to the climax. Nothing else matters. So in order to achieve that goal, politicians play their role, maintaining a drive toward globalism. Their individual roles are to maintain a certain status quo, so the push toward globalism can continue unabated. The status quo is and must be maintained.
So what are these roles that the two parties play. In a movie script, the ending is already written. The author knows the outcome and creates characters and circumstances that get him or her to the climax. In a republic, the wild card is the voters. We must be brought along like movie goers to watch the movie and pay money to see it. The parties figured out a long time ago that if they want to maintain the status quo, they must get voters to go along with it. So congress is made up of various factions that purportedly represent the larger idealistic public groups…..the poor, the socialists, the conservatives, the libertarians, the blacks, the illegals, the Muslims, the gays…..all the groups in America that cast a vote. So, most would say: “isn’t that how it is supposed to work?” Yes…it is….but that’s merely the sub-plot to the main plot of the movie.

 

The main plot, is to keep commerce moving forward. Keep profits rising, keep stock prices increasing, keep resources flowing, and keep money flowing into the bank accounts of the rich and powerful. Many who read this are already saying that I’m being cynical and unrealistic, that our representatives are trying hard to solve problems, and if there was just more compromise, more bi-partisanship, more common sense, more agreement….problems could be solved. If you truly believe that, then stop reading and click to the next post…..I have nothing for you.
Since 2006, the majority in the two chambers of congress has shifted back and forth from party to party. Has it mattered? That’s the first question. What’s changed since the democrats held both chambers and the presidency? Has the government gotten smaller? Has middle class income increased? Has poverty declined? Has illegal immigration been reduced? Has there been a period since 1991 that we haven’t been at war? This my friends, is the status quo.
 

Every move our national government makes is to appease a subset of voters while maintaining the status quo. James Madison wrote often about his greatest fear for our republic at its founding. He and most of the founders agreed that the danger to our country was the rise of “Factions”. What were called factions in 1789 are, today, called special interests. These special interests are people or groups, that by using large sums of money, get government to pass laws or remove laws that benefit their special interest financially. This money entering government used to be called bribes, but today it is called campaign finance.
Now I don’t want to get off on a tangent discussing campaign finance laws, but it’s worth a short explanation. Since our founding, there have always been factions that contributed money to candidates. This was the American way. If a candidate believed the same thing you believed, you gave him money so he could get elected and then, hopefully, influence the government to pass laws ….or not….that were in your interest. About 30 years ago, big money interests figured out something very important to them. You see, prior to then, if a special interest wanted an ally, they found a candidate that would support their point of view. When it was a big issue, like say, domestic oil supply, illegal immigration, or national defense, those industries gave money to republicans who would champion those issues. On the other side, if a rich donor or group favored gay marriage, climate change, or more food stamps, they would give their money to democrat candidates. It just doesn’t work that way anymore. Of course there are groups and donors, like I said at the beginning that still believe that’s the way it works…..but it doesn’t.

 

 

There’s a scene in the Star Wars movie, The Clone Wars. A sea monster is chasing Qui-gon Jinn’s underwater craft. The monster is huge and scary. Just as the monster is about to eat their craft, another sea monster, three times bigger, eats the first sea monster. This is what has happened and like Star Wars, it’s all underwater and unseen. The global corporate interests have gobbled up all other interests. They provide huge amounts of cash to, not a candidate that agrees with them, or to a party that supports their interest in principle, they give and functionally support both party establishments to remain in power. The money is almost equally distributed between both parties, who then decide which candidates will be chosen…..and even which ones will win and when. This cannot be understated. The establishment of both parties, choose who will be in the congress…not you! They cultivate, nurture and then finance any campaign of any candidate that will support the status quo. No matter what the ideology of the candidate, the overarching goal is to serve the interest of the status quo and the global corporate interests. This is the very large fish, eating the smaller one. Let me be clear…..republican democrat….it no longer matters. As long as that candidate supports policies that aid global corporate interests, then they are helped.
I sense you are not convinced. You still believe that right versus left is still real, that we are fighting the left and the left is fighting us. Well, I know I will not be able to convince most, but let me use some examples. Now I could provide at least two dozen examples of what I speak….but in the interest of brevity, allow me just two. Most people have heard of Dodd-Frank. This is the bill that regulated banks after the 2008 banking crisis. Let’s be honest, all it did was limit the competition. It devastated small banks and did nothing to address the real problems in banking: Banks so large, a failure could take down the whole economy. But yet it was passed. If you’ve been paying attention, the dems are doing a pretty good job blocking most of Trump’s initiatives. If the republicans, who are characterized as being pro banking and pro business, why was this allowed to pass in the first place? The short answer is nothing passes congress if the global corporate world doesn’t want it passed. Make no mistake, the large American banks are global in nature and operate all over the world. They don’t want smaller banks interfering with their profits. So get congress to pass regulations that will curtail small banks doing that.
Then there’s the latest example that went un-noticed: the TWO-year omnibus spending bill. Forget for a minute that republicans agreed to record spending once again, while campaigning endlessly on spending less. After it was signed into law, we grumbled and yelled…..but the excuses and explanations kept coming: “we had to do it” “our military has been devastated” Even Trump said….”Had to do it……but I won’t do it again” Bottom line….another record amount of spending on crap! But…..but….that’s not the point. Why two years? Whether you know it or not, the budget process is complicated. Probably for a reason. Each year, during the budget process, the congress has the opportunity to use reconciliation. This is a budget tool that allows spending decisions to pass with 51 votes. You may remember it was used during the ACA debate in 2017, and how the republicans were grossly embarrassed and ridiculed when they couldn’t repeal the ACA. You see, having the majority in both chambers does bring with it a certain amount of power to change things. When things don’t change, and the status quo continues, you have to ask yourself, why is that. Because that’s the way the global corporate interests want it….FACTIONS! reconciliation can only be used once in a budget process, by senate rule. By passing the budget for two years, they will not be able to use reconciliation in 2019, which will take them all the way to the next presidential election in 2020 without having to take any action on the ACA or any other important budget issue.
Trust me that this is only two small examples. The same kind of things have happened with:

Planned Parenthood

Export-Import Bank

The border wall

Chain Migration

The ACA (Obamacare)

Education Reform

Medicaid Expansion

Infrastructure spending

Entitlement reform And more

All these things further the globalist, status quo agenda.
Everything that happens in congress is because that’s the way it’s supposed to work. Their job is to maintain the status quo so global commerce can continue unabated. A huge indication confirming what I’m saying is what we perceive as corruption with an endless supply of investigations that lead to nothing. All to make us believe that justice is right around the corner….then another squirrel runs across the yard and our attention is diverted. They understand us better than we understand ourselves. We have jobs, grandkids, activities, plenty of entertainment…..a short attention span, little political knowledge, and no desire to truly fight back….you know….with guns! So we reluctantly go along….griping and complaining….but not doing anything to change it. But what can we do?
This is why republicans are in a tough spot in 2018. You see the role of the democrats is to march lockstep against everything and anything conservative. The role of the republicans, by being in the majority, is to block those conservative issues that interfere in global commerce. The republicans are purposely divided into sub-groups. There is the libertarian wing, the Freedom Caucus, and the larger Tuesday Group. Each of these divisions serves a purpose. If something is too conservative, like say defunding Planned Parenthood, then a few members from the Tuesday Group can vote with the democrats to stop it. If a bill proposes increasing spending on say the Export/Import Bank a few from the Freedom Caucus can block it. Whenever you look closely at any issue, you have to ask yourself how does this further a global agenda, how does it maintain the status quo, and what special interest is served.
illegal immigration

 

Let’s use immigration as an example. First, you have to ask yourself why we have the laws we do. Are we just stuck with the laws we have? Can’t congress simply pass new laws or remove old ones that are ineffective? Take the Asylum laws. The second a foreign person places one foot onto our soil, that person becomes covered by provisions of the 14th amendment, that starts out with: nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”  This means, when someone steps over the border, they must receive “due process”. This is what stops any president or border patrol guard from simply stopping illegal crossers by sending them back. Once they are detained at the border, or anywhere in the country, they are entitled to a hearing by a court in order to determine their status. Its called “catch and release”. Once caught, their information is taken, they are given a summons, and they are let go into America. They are supposed to show up at that hearing. 87% never show up. They become illegal immigrants. I realize I digressed a bit….but can’t this be changed? Isn’t it in America’s interest to stop them coming here illegally? Over and over again, study after study, has shown the costs of having so many poor, unskilled, and uneducated immigrants entering the country illegally. I won’t dwell on all those costs, suffice it to say, they are in the tens of billions of dollars, at least. I want to focus on why it’s the way it is. Congress has the ability to fix it, either with legislation or a proposed change to the 14th amendment….the congress has complete power over this. But you see, illegal immigration is part of the status quo. It serves the interests of democrats by creating potential voters, it serves the interests of certain industries by providing low wage workers. It also depresses wages and costs for some employers, which increases profits. It, then, keeps all wages lower for businesses. It even has the potential for increasing population in certain states like California, which can add seats to its congressional delegation. These things are part of the status quo. Make no mistake, the congress could address this tomorrow with new legislation or changes to the 14th amendment…but they don’t, and won’t. I was stunned when I was doing campaign finance research a few years ago on two Utah congressmen. One was a democrat and one was a republican. I was stunned when I found tens of thousands of dollars in contributions from several mid-western landscaping companies and from the trade association from the landscaping industry. Both congressmen also received 5 figure contributions from LaRaza, an immigration activist organization. Well, with further study, I found both congressmen voted for the latest version of an amnesty bill without any border security measures. This, my friends, is repeated in every industry in America….money buys votes to further the interests of a few, while ignoring the interests of the American people.

 

As long as we had a series of presidents that went along with the status quo, all was well. From 1988 until 2016….28 years….we’ve had presidents that supported this status quo. Not one single problem was solved, as America was drawn into the globalist agenda. In 2016 Trump was elected. A populist/nationalist that believed the status quo had to change. Is it any wonder then, that an entrenched bureaucracy and a globalist establishment wanted to stop Trump’s election and then try to have him removed when he did get elected? Now that the thrust of their plan has been thwarted by the relentlessness of a few journalists and a very select few in congress, there is a new plan. That plan is to lose the House of representatives. This will do several things to maintain the status quo. First and foremost, Trump will become virtually neutered. Not one more part of his agenda will come to the floor for a vote. If it does, it will be defeated. It will also allow the dems to bring impeachment proceedings, which would be stymied in the senate, but it would bring months and months of distraction and wasted time, once again distracting the American people with, yet, another long investigation. It would also end most of the heat on the democrat party, as all congressional hearings would be stopped and new ones started on everything Trump.
Finally, republicans are in a tough spot because they will be asked to vote for candidates that fall far below their expectations for a representative. Judging from the Connor Lamb victory in PA, they may even like what they hear from the democrat. And of course, there are a lot of us out hear that understand just how alike the two parties are and simply can’t stomach voting for another RINO. But we have to! We not only have to vote for the RINO, we have to show up in large numbers. We cannot allow the congressional chambers to be split. That will stop any possible progress. We have to force the republicans to take responsibility for the country. Split chambers will give them another excuse to accomplish nothing. As long as we hold both chambers, corruption will continue to be exposed by such heroes as Devin Nunez, Jim Jordan, and Bob Goodlatte. The more corruption that gets exposed, the better chance we have for republicans to be held accountable. I don’t know if I convinced anybody, but I know if the House falls because we stayed home, or voted for some lying democrat, then America will stop the progress that Trump has started and we will return, forcefully, to the status quo. Get out and vote in November.
