It Feels Like Intermission…

We are about to find out which of the theories of the Presidency is true.

1. We have the Conventional Wisdom one, which is that Trump was a hard working guy who was also lucky and beat the establishment by complete surprise, especially to himself. Hence, the battle against the establishment has been an improvisation, and as such is almost hopeless to win. Sessions has turned out to be a bad pick and POTUS is waging a tough fight and will probably lose.

2. We have the Sundance theory of “The Big Ugly” where the whole Sessions/Trump feud is kabuki theatre, a distraction to put distance between Trump and Sessions, such that the media embraces Sessions and then will get caught out when he drops a whole bunch of sealed indictments on the establishment swamp creatures.

3. Then we have the whole earth theory of Qanon, who takes Sundance and expands it to the Military recruited Trump, and the NSA delivered the goods to him for use against the deep state and other bad actors around the world. Same games are being played as in the Sundance game above but this one includes military tribunals to clean out the government including the DOJ,FBI and CIA, and tying the Progressives to child trafficking on an immense scale. Some obscure corners of this also have the Masons, the Rothschilds, the Federal Reserve and Satanic rituals , but not a lot of that from the main player, Q.

Me? I want them all to be true sometimes, but I do sense this cannot be contained a lot more. The media and swamp are ratcheting up their attacks and the Techno-Barons are attempting to choke off any big negative news that the good guys may drop before the election.

If we see no big stuff by the end of September, I may have to revert to dull old Conventional Wisdom, the hardtack of semi edible theories.

  1. I’m going with a modified option #1- modified because even if Trump didn’t expect to win, he had every reason to expect he would actually be the President once he did win. The establishment plainly won’t accept that, alas. The Q Anon stuff seems like obvious nonsense since apparently Q believes Mueller is actually working with Trump, and Sessionzzz has been an awful AG. Letting the left get away with arranging an open-ended fishing expedition against Trump may well go down in history as one of the most catastrophic errors of political judgement since James Buchanan thought the Dredd Scott decision would settle the slavery question.

    That said, I recall lines from one of my favorite Glen Cook novels- they win victory after victory, but each one costs them the heart of their strength. That the present regime has had to resort to such unprecedented attacks against the elected government is not a good sign for them. Once, they could mount their attacks with impunity, because no one doubted the good intentions and integrity of the FBI, and no one suspected the CIA would be meddling in domestic politics.

    Those days have ended. 2020 will interesting, whether or not Trump survives, because the behavior of our three-letter agencies will be an issue, whether or not the political establishment wants it to be.

    I am a fan of The Fourth Turning, written by the guys who gave us such terms as Generation X, etc. My evaluation of present events, per their thesis, is that we’ve reached the point when the failing regime attempts to maintain its fading hold on power by imposing tyranny.  Time will obviously tell, but I suspect that if the country wanted what the left was trying to sell we wouldn’t have had the hapless GOP do as well as it has done since 2010.

    Thus, even if the left ousts Trump and gets all they want in 2018, they still have to contend with the vast future, where their enemy also gets a say. If I recall, The Fourth Turning anticipated that the country would pass through a great door of history in the mid-2020s, so the cycle has a few years left to run.

    Patience.   It may not happen by then, or even before the election in November.

    But I agree; the longer it takes, the less it seems likely that it will turn out to be the Kabuki of Option 2, which would be so delightful that I dare not hope too much.

    In the end, Conventional Wisdom became conventional for a reason.   Occam and all that.

  3. I have been calling them the “Treason Party” ever since Obama pulled out of Iraq- wait, only since then?

    What about Vietnam? The left engineered that abandonment of the South, resulting in the murder of millions of our friends. And today, we have been tasked by these same folks with defending that regime against China.

    Iran? Carter did nothing while the Shah was overthrown, again resulting in the death of millions, including some large number of pro-American Iranians. This has troubled us ever since.

    Libya? That country was destroyed for no reason, except perhaps to hide that the former President of France took millions in bribe money from Kaddafy.

    And back to Iraq, the US stood by as Christians were ethnically cleansed from that country during the war. Come to think of it, the US always stands by whenever Christians are being murdered- but always springs into action when Muslims are dying.

    Why is that, exactly?

    And don’t forget, our previous gop president, George Bush, is great friends with the Obamas, having no apparent problem with Barry’s actions in Iraq and elsewhere- but Bush can’t stand Trump. Another previous gop nominee, John McCain, almost switched parties twice, had no trouble with Obama, but also hates Trump. Mitt Romney ran for office because he wanted to stop Trump’s pro-American agenda, etc.

    My point here is that 1) the demonrats have been traitors for a looong time, and 2) the gop doesn’t have a problem with it.

    Time to die, gop. One party of traitors is enough.

    Back then there were Leftists in both parties.   The Progressive Republicans opposed the Vietnam War, just not so vocally as the Leftist Democrats.   So when you say “the Left engineered that abandonment of [American friends and allies in] the South,” that was a treasonous betrayal that was mostly by Democrats but included a number of Republicans.   Jacob Javits (“not one nickel for Thieu”) was the Republican Senator from New York.

    Beginning after their disastrous 1968 Convention, the Democrat Party purged conservatives out of their ranks.   Conservatives moved over to the Republican Party, where we are only now beginning to see that America needs us to purge the remaining do-nothing GOP “moderates” if we are to save Western Civilization.   Conservatives have been taking friendly fire from “moderate” Republicans for three decades.   It is time to pull together and fight.   We have to fight the Left, the Democrat Party, the journalists, and the Quislings in the GOP.   The fight is desperate, and we need every vote and every voice we can muster.

    Yes, and Obama tried to complete the betrayal and elevate Iran to a more powerful position in the Middle East.

    Well, Obama, Jarrett, Kerry, Clinton, et al, are  Francophiles, but I think the foulup of Libya was more due to Leftist ideology.   That happened during the “Arab Spring” which they viewed as a positive development based on goodwill for America that they thought had resulted from Obama’s Apology Tour and his reduction of American strength and influence.   They were wrong on all counts, and then they tried to hide their errors and their cowardice.   We all know the truth despite the massive cover-up by mass media.

    That is deliberate policy of our State Department.   They think we need to sell out Christians at every turn in order to maintain alliances with some key Muslim regimes.   The long memories at State are hung up on the positive reactions to Bill Clinton when he saved the Muslim Bosnians from ethnic cleansing that the “Christian” Slavs attempted.

    Those of us who follow Wikileaks found out via the relaease of the Clinton emails that there was plenty of “pay to paly” going on  while Hillary was the US Secretary of State. She accepted some 32 millions of dollars as donations to the CLinton Foudnation, and all she had to do to receive that moneywas to get a war on in Syria. Why Syria? becuse the US Congress had laid down sanctions such that no US weapons could go to Libya directly. But if the US got a war on with Syria, it would be easey peasey top gtransfer the weaponst aht arrived in  Syria over to Libya.

    So what else was at stake, other than that 32 millions of dollars HRC wanted to keep? Some 320 billions of gold bullion – whose fate  no one seems to know. Did France and its officials get the money? And if so, didn’t HRC and Barack Obama feel they deserved some of it, for our funding the “rebels” in Syria from maybe as early on as 2010, and then our heating up the Syrian war by funding ISIS after that? (In 2017, Trump finally figured out how to de-fund the aspect of the CIA budget that gave the monies over to ISIS.)

    I don’t remember it that way.   Hillary did not get us into a war in Syria; in fact Team Obama did everything they could to avoid going into Syria, including blatantly ignoring “red lines.”

    And I have the idea that the weapons flow was actually the other way around.   The way I heard it was that the reason Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi was to look in on a hidden scheme to buy black market weapons in Libya, then smuggle them through Turkey to give them to the Kurds who were fighting ISIS in Syria.

    I believe that the pay-to-play access peddling of the Clinton Foundation did not need any wars; they had a different dynamic going on.   Everyone wanted to be a “Friend of Hillary” because she was going to become President.

    I was going to type that I am sorry you never got familiar with Wikileaks revelations, but then I went into my hard drive and realized you have also avoided New York Times reporting on Mike Pompeo stating, circa Aug 2017, that we were ending a four year history of supporting the Syrian rebels.

    Below is the NYT’s report on Pompeo and the Trump action to shut it down.

    You might find the wiki leaks info on HRC and her massive Pay to Play activities quite interesting.

    WASHINGTON — The end came quickly for one of the costliest covert action programs in the history of the C.I.A.

    During a White House briefing early last month, the C.I.A. director, Mike Pompeo, recommended to President Trump that he shut down a four-year-old effort to arm and train Syrian rebels. The president swiftly ended the program.

    The rebel army was by then a shell, hollowed out by more than a year of bombing by Russian
    planes and confined to ever-shrinking patches of Syria that government troops had not reconquered.
    Critics in Congress had complained for years about the costs — more than $1 billion over the life of the program — and reports that some of the C.I.A.-supplied weapons had ended up in the hands of a rebel group tied to Al Qaeda further sapped political support for the program.

    Was there something in there that said somebody was contributing to the Clinton Foundation in order to get the U.S. to give aid to the anti-Assad militias in Syria?   If so, that is new to me.

    The Clinton Foundation pay-to-play scandal is bad enough without trying to tie it to Syria.

  12. Giving guns and limited air support is not “going to war.”   We have recent experience in going to war, and what we did in Syria ain’t that.

  13. …Team Obama did everything they could to avoid going into Syria, including blatantly ignoring “red lines.”

    I suppose this is matter of opinion, but my take is the exact opposite.

    I think they did all they could to get us involved in Syria in the first place, including the creation of that so-called red line- but they simply weren’t able to get the GOP to sign up to accept the blame for later when it would have inevitably turned into another Iraq-style fiasco.

    The gop leadership was of course willing to jump off the cliff on command, but with calls to Congressional offices running 1000-1 against intervention they weren’t able to round up enough Republican votes to authorize the use of force.

    Hence, the under-the-table CIA effort that followed.

    I don’t think Team Obama wanted to “get us involved in Syria.”  They did make the Syrian situation worse, in part because their ideological thinking was blindered and blinkered.   They were looking at Egypt and thinking that a new Muslim utopia was in the works.   They thought the same story could play out in Syria, bringing down Assad without costing them anything.   They were badly wrong about Syria, just as they were badly wrong about Libya, and badly wrong about Egypt, too.

    They were forced to deal with Syria, which they botched, because ISIS gained a stronghold there.   ISIS was on the rise because Obama had pulled us out of Iraq.   They did not care about a few hundred thousand murders or about millions of refugees, but they did want to avoid blame.   So long as they looked like they were doing something, mass media would give them a pass.

    I thought that the Team Obama effort was actually not bad.   They were buying black market weapons in Libya, which reduced the supply and raised the cost for remaining black market weapons in Libya.   They were giving these weapons to the Kurds and the anti-Assad militia in Syria, so they could fight ISIS and Assad.

    I think this is why they were frozen to inaction when Benghazi happened.   They were terrified that this scheme would be exposed.   The blow-back from the Left side of their Leftist party would have been hysterical, if they had found out that Obama and Hillary were running guns to a place where Congress had told them to stay out.   That is exactly what Oliver North had been doing for Ronald Reagan in Nicaragua.
