Trump is prepping for all-out political war
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/2/2018 4:46:22 AM

As I sat a few feet from President Trump while he ripped special counsel Robert Mueller and warned Democrats he is preparing a devastating counterpunch, the phrase “The Gathering Storm” came to mind. That’s the title of Volume I of Winston Churchill’s masterful history of World War II. It also describes the president’s mood and the vicious game of blood sport playing out in Washington. While our nation’s political battles are hardly as dramatic as the fight with Nazi Germany and Japan, a storm is gathering in America and 2019 is shaping up as an extremely turbulent year.

It would be nice if Trump actually followed through with any of his threats. By now everyone knows he always backs down. None of the criminals that continue to run the US have anything to worry about.

God bless and give the President wisdom to deal with the absolute worst bunch of lying miscreants ever to inhabit this country. The awful shame is the fact that the guilty are highly placed political figures and bureaucrats who believe their status will protect them from prosecution. This assurance also comes from the media’s support and protection which they believe will be able to deflect any proof of wrongdoing. God help us if these criminals get away with a plot to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump. The Republic will never recover. The American people know what has transpired and continues to take place in this egregious travesty of justice. We cannot allow them to win and walk away scot free. A conspiracy of this magnitude demands justice, nothing less. Pray for this President and all who support his innocence.

Hopefully there will be indictments for a whole slew of Congress criminals. That could be beneficial in determining the Congress majority.

These slow-witted corrupt politicians rely on conniving and dishonesty to accumulate power and money. They are unequipped intellectually to handle real challenges in their lives. They are like wind-up toys repeating the same pattern of behaviour endlessly. The cold rain of reality should dampen their ill-gotten expectations.

The Rain God is about to enter their lives and they are unsuited to meet his wrath.

Have some patience, #1. Timing is everything and PDT is a black belt in timing. Not to mention that, as long as he keeps the FISA documents private, he had a huge ram with which to batter the guilty left.

The War has already been declared. Pelosi and Schumer have issued their marching orders. No quarter will be given and no quarter asked. No one is safe, and scorched earth is the approach mandated. RESIST is the order of the day.
At least Trump knows he is in a fight.

The President will attack in due course. There is no need at all to roll right now. He is currently enjoying himself and his accomplishments.

Key figures among the dims, the deep state, and the msm will be indicted and imprisoned for some very serious crimes committed against the United States.

There is a reason why Putie has been held to secrecy since he and the President met earlier this year. There is a reason why the British Government frantically requested that the President not out any of their operatives.

The President will strike at the right moment. The right moment is defined as the moment when it will become impossible for the dims, deep state, and msm to win in 2020. It is defined as the moment when the dims will lose control of the House it just regained. It is defined as the moment when the msm will be mortally wounded. It is also defined as the moment when progressivism will be destroyed for a long long time. There is no question that we face turbulent times here as the President seeks and gets well-deserved justice.

Let´s be honest. Dims and pubbies will both be going to the joint. Invest in companies who make orange jumpsuits. As termed by others here, the Big Ugly is coming.

May God continue to protect the President of the United States and his family.

Also, it´s not just for President Trump to fight alone, while we sit on the sidelines and carp about events. We must also be involved. There are many way to be involved, and our support, even when it seems things are not going our way, is critical.

My favorite college football team came from behind to win, after a gloomy start where it appeared they might lose. They stayed strong and didn´t give up. That´s a good lesson for politics too.

Really? Now? Why not six months before the mid-terms when it might have made a significant difference?

I am wholly behind President Trump at long last coming out with both guns blazing like Josey Wales. But, honestly, at this point, after he could have blown the Democrats out of the water by releasing the documents when he dallied away valuable time over replacing Uncle Sessions, I´m beginning to think the "Swamp´ is simply not drainable.

As far as I can tell, it seems our President has been engaged in an all-out "political war" and all he has done is hunker down. If he does come out at long last blazing, arresting deep state operative and marching into the House and Senate calling out those jerks right and let- then go for it- I´ll be a most delighted person. But, right now-I´m thinking- probably just so much talk.

The Democrats are looking for a fight. Trump is happy to oblige. The problem is most of the other Republican ´leadership´ has no stomach for a fight, and in many cases will side with the Democrats. There is only so much Trump can do when the legislative branch and the judicial branch actively work against him.

Trump had to remove a large number of Swamp Creatures in order to restore trust in the DOJ and FBI. The last election was successful in making the Senate a reliable place to confirm judges and cabinet members.

President Trump knows how to play the game and how to win.

Right now the Dems are acting like novices trying to score points with the media. Let them tire out and make mistakes. They know how to do that well.

Absolutely, timing is everything.
As for the midterms, Trump was on the stump constantly with rallies and I watched everyone of them.
Where was the GOP? Where was the money? Where was the ground game? They had none of those going on. In California they conceded the election long before November 6th. Our POTUS is not responsible for winning every congressman´s seat. Securing the majority in the senate was perferable and he did that.

It´s like football. Sometimes losing a game is a good thing. It makes the team fight harder for the big one.
Without a doubt, President Trump knows how to play the game and how to win.

I want to be optimistic, I really do! But, all of this discussion about Trump´s timing and blood sport is getting old. Trump owns the Executive branch including the DOJ, and can´t seem to stop any of this. The Mueller investigation should be shut down. Whitaker should demand that Mueller show what he has and be done with it. Whitaker should also go after the Zero administration for their crimes. But we all know this will never happen. I believe the Dems will impeach Trump and I DO NOT have any confidence in the Republican Senate having his back. At all! Losing the House will prove to be devastating for team Trump. And all of the Clinton/DNC/FISA warrant investigation will disappear.

When Trump was on the campaign trail the constant chant of ´lock her up´ was sometimes the theme of the rallies. Do think on President Trump´s first day in office going after Hillary would have been wise of course not? President Trump wanted to accomplish things and right the tilted government Obama had tried to destroy.
As the onion was peeled back on the Deep State and operatives the circle of names became apparent. The President fired some but left some significant crooks in place to our dismay, Mueller and Rosenstein. When these two dirty cops are fired it´s going to be the beginning of mortal combat. Sessions was do nothing who just had to go plugging what will be an important spot in this administration.
Going after the Deep State any time before this would have stifled things the President wanted to get done. It could be close to the time to ´pull the trigger´.
You don´t go after a whale in a rubber dingy holding a sharp stick you go after the whale in a huge boat and sharpened long spear. That is what President Trump is doing to encounter this whale.

Remember, when it comes to the bottom line, President Trump can only do what is politically possible.

Since Trump was elected there have been enough wimpy establishment Republicans in the Congress who opposed Trump and much of his political agenda, and thus were able to slow walk or through double dealing were able to defeat proposed legislation relating to a lot of issues that Trump attempted to solve.

Look at the Republicans who are either bailing out of the Congress on their own, or who were defeated in the election, and you will see that almost all of them were anti-Trump.

I call it Stratego/Chess where the faces of some the game pieces are hidden & the moves revealed only after a strike.
In the meantime we must have patience.

Please realize, #1, that Trump does NOT have what even our mediocre Republican presidents did have at least — the support of their own party. The GOPe resists him, betrays him at every turn both behind his back and in public. With what he has arrayed against him, the leadership he has displayed has been remarkable.

I am with you, #8. We must pray and have patience, my fellow patriots, patience.

Pres. Trump has graciously, evn respectfully, tolerated their constant antagonism for over two years. The country has also been long suffering along with him, as the deep state railed on & on, 24/7. ...Has the time finally come to confront the rude & crude, radical PC lefty bullies and their media tools? After all, they alone are responsible for the strife which they continue to perpetrate against this country and its President. They alone are responsible for their unreasonable actions & disrespectful words, just as we all are. They alone are accountable for what they are doing against civility in America.

For all those who have forgotten, Trump said early in his campaign that he will ALWAYS give a warning to his opponents before he acts. Now that the 2 SC judges are on the bench, and the midterms are done, there is nothing stopping him from finally taking the gloves off. The Swamp has no clue what is coming. But we do.

They will soon find out to their everlasting sorrow. Trump doesn´t play beanbag, he plays junkyard dog NYC style.

Pardon the additional post.

FTA: In theory, Trump agrees. But he is fixated on the war, and understandably so because he is fighting for the survival of his presidency.

No, he is fighting for the Republic so that we can remain free without the illusion of freedom.

Drunk on his own self-deluded rectitude, James Comey has become one of the most insufferable voices on the Left. He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale. That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier,

I’m experiencing 1998 déjà vu as prosecutors once again work overtime to turn extramarital affairs and the efforts to keep them secret into impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors. Unable to get the witnesses to compose the stories they want, today’s prosecutors are discovering they can simply compose the crimes by manipulating the pleas of men desperate to protect their families. The Michael Cohen sentencing memo took aim directly at both Cohen and President Donald Trump. It was used, unethically, to cast the president as directing a criminal conspiracy to make “secret and illegal” payments. Sentencing memos are not supposed

Shakespeare famously wrote of the “sceptered isle” of Britain acting as a moat “against the envy of less happier lands.” Lately, the less happier lands are winning in a rout. Britain is suffering a political meltdown as it struggles to make good on a historic vote in 2016 to leave the European Union. The decision for a so-called Brexit was a stirring statement of independence and self-government by a people who have defined themselves down the centuries by their stiff-necked resistance to anyone — whether overweening monarchs or continental tyrants — who would threaten either.

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior.

Many people I know in law enforcement circles shuddered when James Comey tweeted recently that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker “may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.” To them, Comey’s Twitter attack crossed that “blue line” – the one that real cops abide by, to never criticize fellow officers and to always have their backs. I had a different reaction. I found it odd that a man who started his Twitter career by quoting Bible verses about justice might have forgotten one of the golden utterances from Jesus himself:

Aside from the nauseatingly familiar Washington corruption of the Manafort/Podesta stripe, the Great Russia Probe of 2016-2018 (and onwards) has morphed into the even more nauseatingly familiar Washington sex scandal. If we are to believe legal-eagle Jonathan Turley--and why not; he seems pretty competent--Donald Trump´s most serious problem (possibly rising to obstruction) is not Russia collusion, whatever that is, but the hush money payoffs
