The “Deep State” Revealed: Of Manafort, Mueller, and Machiavellian Machinations

September 19, 2017

untitled (177)

I have been chronicling since President Trump’s Presidential Campaign started as to how he threated to upset the Washingtonian Status Quo and how the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans as well, viewed him as an “outsider” unfit to hold the highest office in the land.

They still do and now what “Deep State” Washington Bureaucrats are willing to do to “get rid of” the 45th President of the United States of America knows no bounds.

A short while back, I asked…

How many “Deep State” holdovers from the Obama Administration are, even now, working to sabotage the plans of President Donald J. Trump?

Well…

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was wiretapped by U.S. government investigators both before and after the 2016 presidential election, according to a report out Monday night.

The wiretapping was authorized by a secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court after the FBI started to investigate Manafort, 68, in 2014, CNN reported. He’s been under scrutiny over his financial dealings and lobbying efforts with pro-Russia and Ukrainian officials but has denied colluding with Russia to influence the election.

The order to monitor Manafort was discontinued in 2016, but investigators obtained another FISA warrant that stretched into early 2017, according to the report.

Some of the intelligence collected during the surveillance reportedly signaled that Manafort may have pushed for Russian officials to help try to get then-candidate Donald Trump elected. However, sources told CNN the evidence was not conclusive.

Manafort, according to the report, was not surveilled during the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in which Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Manafort met with Kremlin-linked attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Manafort – who is a key figure in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s involvement with the election – had his Virginia home raided in July by FBI agents who were looking for financial documents related to the election.

The FBI took documents and other materials related to Mueller’s investigation during the raid, just one day after Manafort had voluntarily met with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The raid was followed up with a warning to Manafort from Mueller’s prosecutors that they planned to indict him, The New York Times reported.

Manafort, a longtime GOP operative who worked for former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, stepped down as the Trump campaign’s chairman in August 2016 amid mounting speculation surrounding his ties to Ukrainian politics.

Warrants of this nature are difficult to come by, as the FISA court and its orders are highly secretive. Judges grant permission to surveil people they think may be working as an agent of a foreign power.

If the CNN report is confirmed, Manafort would be the second person affiliated with the Trump campaign known to be monitored under a FISA warrant, behind former campaign adviser Carter Page.

Manafort, who registered as a foreign agent this summer, has said his work in Ukraine was not related to the 2016 campaign.

And, in a related story

The newest lawyer to join Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Trump campaign team collusion with Russia gained notoriety for her conduct in defending former President Obama’s immigration orders, Politico reported Saturday.

Besides her work for Obama, Kyle Freeny, now the 16th member of Mueller’s legal team, Federal Election Commission records show she donated in each of the past three presidential elections to Democratic nominees, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Freeny and her colleagues came under judicial fire while defending a lawsuit in which Texas and 25 other states contested Obama’s executive order in 2014 on immigration. The federal judge hearing the case, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, blasted Freeny and her colleagues for misleading him when the litigation began by indicating that none of the changes Obama had ordered had taken effect. In actuality, one major change, to issue longer work permits, had already begun.

Hanen said the government lawyers had engaged in “misconduct” that was “intentional, serious and material,” according to Politico

“In fact, it is hard to imagine a more serious, more calculated plan of unethical conduct,” wrote the judge, who eventually dropped plans to impose sanctions on the government lawyers.

Freeny is one of nine attorneys on Mueller’s team who has donated to Democrats a total of nearly $65,000, according to The Daily Caller.

She had been working in the Justice Department’s money-laundering unit where she helped lead an effort to seize profits from the “The Wolf of Wall Street” film because it was allegedly financed with assets looted from Malaysia’s government.

So, boys and girls, the president was right all along. Obama WAS wiretapping him and his team.

What will be interesting to watch now, will be the backpedaling and parsing by the Main Stream Media and the denial and whining by the Democrat Elite and all of those poor souls who are continuing to throw a National Temper Tantrum, as seen on the Emmy Awards last Sunday Night, fueled by their refusal to accept the fact that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States, placed in office by a fair election.

Rush Limbaugh said on his program 6 months ago that

Folks, Trump is not the guy we need to worry about being, you know, an order of fries short of a Happy Meal. That’s the media and the left. They’re the people with the elevator not going to the top floor. It is not Donald Trump.

These people are seething with rage in there over this news. Part of it I guess exposes them. I mean, there’s intel. They denied there was intel, denied there was an investigation, and now Nunes has found some of it, and some of it he found is what has been reported on by the media.

Faced with the reality of a splintered Democratic Party, which has alienated its base by moving to the Extreme Far Left of the Political Spectrum, the Former President, Barack Hussein Obama, while still in office, gathered information of Trump’s Transition Team.

And, his Administration named names.

Meanwhile, Mueller continues to attempt to stack the roster of his “Investigative Team” with Liberal Democrats.

Of course this should have been expected, because Mueller is simply another “Deep State Operative”, just like those government bureaucrats who continued to wiretap Manafort and the rest of Trump’s Transition Team, even after Obama was no longer their boss.

Mueller was appointed FBI Director by George W. Bush whom he served under for 10 years. When Barack Hussein Obama became President, Mueller served under him for 2 more years.

His past, plus his present staff activity is what has lead me and others to throw up a red flag about this guy, fearing that he may be another Establishment Political Weasel like James Comey, who followed Mueller as Director of the FBI.

Why would a Special Counsel hire so many financial supporters of the Democratic Party to assist in investigating a matter which the Democratic Party has erroneously linked to a President?

Professional Bureaucrat Mueller has put together a Firing Squad, whose sole purpose is not to find out the truth, but rather to manufacture it.

But, why would he do something so blatant? And, how is he getting away with it?

Mueller has friends in low places.

What has been conveniently forgotten, thanks to the Liberal Mass Freak-Out over the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale, is the fact that Barack Hussein Obama, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist himself, has set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House and has even moved his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

When this was first reported. during his Nationally-Syndicated Radio Talk Show, Rush Limbaugh stated that,

…The story is Valerie Jarrett moving in to the Obama family home. What the hell’s up with that?

There’s a story here is about how Obama and his people are running the resistance operation from that home, and that’s why she’s moved in. The story here is the Democrat Party being blown out of the water in election after election after election. The story here is Barack Obama’s agenda has been totally reputed by the American people. It has been rejected in 2010. It was rejected in 2012. It was rejected in 2016. It was sent packing. The story here is that Barack Obama is humiliated and angry and embarrassed that his effort to transform the United States of America into some kind of socialist paradise has been interrupted, that he was the architect of the Democrat Party defeat. And that cannot stand for the history books! And so this story is all about the Democrat Party trying to rewrite history and make it look like they actually won were it not for the cheating of the Russians and Trump.

They’re trying to convince the Europeans of this. They’re doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump, his administration, his victory. That is the story that people need to focus on because there’s evidence for that. There is evidence at every town hall protest. There is evidence all over this country every day that this sabotage is going on.

How many “Deep State” holdovers from the Obama Administration are, even now, working to sabotage the plans of President Donald J. Trump?

Who can the President trust?

I wrote a while back that I thought that we were all in the middle of a Tom Clancy Novel being played out in real life.

The only way for a happy ending to this real life spy novel is for the 45th President of the United States to fulfill another one of his campaign Promises and “Drain the Swamp”, i.e., the Justice Department and all of the “alphabet agencies” of disloyal embedded operatives left behind by previous Administrations.

And, President Trump needs to pull the plug on Mueller and his Witch-hunting Firing Squad.

We, the people, spoke loudly and clearly on November 8, 2017.

It’s way past time to get on with the business of MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Thinkin’ and Prayin’: The NY Times Tries to Bring Down Trump with Another Fake News Story…This Time Involving Trump, Jr.

July 10, 2017

The smell of Liberal Desperation is once again in the air.

The morning, The New York Times ran what they thought was a blockbuster of a story…one through which they might be able to rid themselves and the rest of the MSM Propaganda Arm of the DNC of President Donald J. Trump.

According to The Times…

President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton before agreeing to meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign, according to three advisers to the White House briefed on the meeting and two others with knowledge of it.

The meeting was also attended by his campaign chairman at the time, Paul J. Manafort, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kushner recently disclosed the meeting, though not its content, in confidential government documents described to The New York Times.

The Times reported the existence of the meeting on Saturday. But in subsequent interviews, the advisers and others revealed the motivation behind it.

The meeting — at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016, two weeks after Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican nomination — points to the central question in federal investigations of the Kremlin’s meddling in the presidential election: whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. The accounts of the meeting represent the first public indication that at least some in the campaign were willing to accept Russian help.

While President Trump has been dogged by revelations of undisclosed meetings between his associates and the Russians, the episode at Trump Tower is the first such confirmed private meeting involving his inner circle during the campaign — as well as the first one known to have included his eldest son. It came at an inflection point in the campaign, when Donald Trump Jr., who served as an adviser and a surrogate, was ascendant and Mr. Manafort was consolidating power.

It is unclear whether the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, actually produced the promised compromising information about Mrs. Clinton. But the people interviewed by The Times about the meeting said the expectation was that she would do so.

Courtesy of FoxNews.com, here is what actually happened, per Donald Trump, Jr, who was actually there.

“I was asked to have a meeting by an acquaintance I knew from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant with an individual who I was told might have information helpful to the campaign.

“I was not told her name prior to the meeting. I asked Jared (Kushner) and Paul (Manafort) to attend, but told them nothing of the substance. We had a meeting in June 2016. After pleasantries were exchanged, the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms. Clinton.

“Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information. She then changed subjects and began discussing the adoption of Russian children and mentioned the Magnitsky Act.

“It became clear to me that this was the true agenda all along and that the claims of potentially helpful information were a pretext for the meeting. I interrupted and advised her that my father was not an elected official, but rather a private citizen, and that her comments and concerns were better addressed if and when he held public office.

“The meeting lasted approximately 20 to 30 minutes. As it ended, my acquaintance apologized for taking up our time. That was the end of it and there was no further contact or follow-up of any kind. My father knew nothing of the meeting or these events.”

Once again, Liberal Journalists, in their Quixotic Quest to somehow, someway, nullify the votes cast by average Americans in America’s Heartland on November 8, 2016, have served up another big ol’ NOTHINGBURGER.

One month ago, Foxnews.com reported that

Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the mainstream press is full of “fake news,” according to the latest Harvard-Harris poll.

65 percent of voters believe there is a significant amount of fake news in the mainstream media, and the sentiment is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats reflected this distrust of the media.

84 percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.

The Harvard-Harris online survey of 2,006 registered voters was conducted between May 17 and May 20.

On “The Fox News Specialists,” Eric Bolling said the media had a particularly bad week last week, with The Washington Post and The New York Times publishing negative stories about President Trump that proved to be “duds.”

“Two publications that people really rely on to have real news and real researched news and journalistic standards blew it last week badly,” Bolling said.

Rob O’Neill lamented that the media has forgotten the importance of honesty, and too many journalists are now reporting on what’s going to advance their personal agendas.

Bolling agreed, and added that many of these anti-Trump stories cite unnamed sources.

“They’re undermining their own credibility,” Bolling said. “If you have a source, name your source. Or don’t run with it.”

The once-proud “Grey Lady” has become a laughingstock, being driven straight into the ground by grief-stricken Modern American Liberal Writers and Editors, determined to somehow remove President Trump from office and install Hillary Clinton as President.

The New York Times, like the rest of the Main Stream Media, has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feelings after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bring home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies being peddled by the Main Stream Media about our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news, as shown by the poll in the above article, is that the majority of Americas are now buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority and the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media by the sharing of information through Social Media.

Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as The Times, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Trump Impeachment, clearing the way for some sort of magically-gifted “do-over” resulting in a Clinton Presidency.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for The New York Times and the rest of the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to their being dismissed by average Americans as, as Trump remarked, being known as purveyors of “fake news”.

Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

Americans no longer implicitly trust the Main Stream Media.

By continuing to immerse themselves in soul-searing grief and self-pity over the fact of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, they continue to distance themselves from the majority of American Thought.

Their Fake News Stories and the rest of their behind-the-scenes maneuvering and other Political Machinations have produced nothing but epic failure.

Donald J. Trump is still the President of the United States of America.

All that the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media have left is, now sing along with me, boys and girls, (who remember the song)…

Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Thinkin’ and Prayin’…
